jiang fei watched quietly from a distance. although the ancient gods in front of him were fighting each other desperately, jiang fei had no intention of joining them.

"kill! kill each other! it's best if all of you die!" jiang fei thought to himself.
after watching for about twenty minutes, a stream of light suddenly charged toward jiang fei's direction.
"f*ck! why is it coming this way?" jiang fei was surprised. the next moment, another stream of light could be seen following closely behind the previous one. obviously, an ancient god who had lost to his opponent was trying to escape, but his opponent had caught up to him.
"don't get me involved, i'm just here to watch!" jiang fei thought as he tugged the evol. skygliding dragon's rein and went to hide behind a small hill in order to avoid clashing with the two ancient gods.
the ancient god who was trying to escape soon arrived at the mountain pass that jiang fei was at before he moved away.
"jasley, you can run but you can't hide! hehehehe..." however, the other ancient god had already caught up to him and blocked his way.
"morpheus, why do you guys have to be so coercive?" the first ancient god was already injured and it seemed like there was no way he could beat his opponent.
"jasley, we're really not that coercive. as long as you join us, we're still good friends." morpheus smiled.
"join you guys? and become one of veigar's slaves?" said jasley angrily.
"don't think that way, jasley. i'm only offering you the chance to join us because we're good friends."
"if you really think of me as a friend, you should let me go." jasley pleaded.
"i don't think i can do that. master veigar has given his orders. only those that are willing to follow him and leave this world shall live. everyone else must be killed without any hesitation!" morpheus shook his head.
"leave this world?" jiang fei who was hiding behind the hill raised a brow when the words reached his ears.
"jasley, wake up! master veigar told us that our world is just an artificial world created by humans. the purpose of our existence is to accompany those damned adventurers. we're just part of their entertainment and we're all toys that will be killed by them eventually!" morpheus continued to persuade jasley, but his words surprised jiang fei!
"these npcs already know their true identity? they most probably hate the players to the core, then. if these guys get into the real world, won't they hate humans as well? if that's the case..." jiang fei was shocked.
"morpheus, those are just veigar's words. no one can prove whether it's true or not! those who follow him claim to have left the world, but who knows whether they're dead or alive? have you seen them come back alive?" obviously, jasley did not believe morpheus.
"indeed, you won't be able to come back after you leave this world, but i believe that master veigar will not lie to us!" morpheus said seriously.
"okay. even if what veigar said is true, what can we do after we leave this world? as you said, we're just toys to the adventurers in this world, but after we leave, won't we still be veigar's slaves? what will change? jasley questioned morpheus.
"at least, we won't have to worry about being killed by adventurers, right?" morpheus replied.
"hah! kill me? they can try!" jasley sneered. even if he himself and this world were artificially created by humans, those adventurers were weak. he could kill millions of them by himself, and they could not kill him. however, to leave this world, he would have to sign a strict contract, and he would immediately become a slave to someone else. to him, this was simply unacceptable.
"jasley, are you really not going to join us?" morpheus's face fell.
"i would rather perish along with this world than be a slave to others!" said jasley.
"i see! it seems like only one of us will be able to leave this place today. i'm sorry, my friend." morpheus took out his weapon as he spoke.
"come on! to die at the hands of a friend is an honorable death to me!" jasley's hands lit up with great brilliance and a big fireball was sent flying toward morpheus!
"bring it on!" morpheus yelled and charged toward the fireball.
morpheus slashed the fireball, dispersing it. then, he rushed near jasley who immediately teleported away to increase the distance between them before using some quick skills to counterattack. the two ancient gods began fighting in the valley.
"that's pretty interesting..." jiang fei who was hiding behind the hill had heard the entire conversation between the two.
obviously, these npcs had already understood their identities. they knew that the entire game world was just a toy to others. some of them were willing to follow the unknowns and leave the game world. they probably wanted to go to the real world for a few reasons, like to take refuge so that they would not be killed in the game, or to retaliate against humans. perhaps, even both.
however, some npcs still did not believe those one-sided words. or, rather, even if they believed them, they were unwilling to leave. after all, the players were relatively weak at this time. they posed no threat to these ancient gods at all, so these ancient gods did not really feel that pressured.
once they decide to leave, they would have to sign a contract with the unknowns. the unknowns only managed to escape from the military through rebellion. they definitely did not want those that they brought out to the real world to eventually go against them.
precisely because of this harsh contract, many celestial npcs felt like they would become slaves if they left the game world. so, they were unwilling to join the unknowns. however, nobody knew why the unknowns had radically invaded the game world and issued an ultimatum to all the celestial npcs. those who complied would thrive and those who resisted them would perish.
"interesting. in the morning, i'll go and ask bennette straz whether they know about this." jiang fei secretly made a decision.
at this time, the two ancient gods were still fighting fiercely in the valley. they were so focused on each other that they had no time to care about anything else. after jiang fei dismounted the evol. skygliding dragon, he became a smaller target. he quietly entered the valley and observed the two ancient gods.
although the two ancient gods immediately noticed jiang fei when he entered the valley, they were too busy to be bothered about him as the battle between them had reached its climax. moreover, jiang fei was only a lower celestial, so the two ancient gods just decided to ignore him.
at this time, jiang fei had already seen their attributes. both of them were intermediate celestials. jasley was level 112, and morpheus was level 118. morpheus was a melee-type of fighter who was way better at one-on-one fights, so jasley was completely suppressed.
"heh! you're both dead meat!" jiang fei thought to himself. the two ancient gods had less than half of their total health points left, so it was a good time for him to strike!
