As Song Shuhang used the “bind” command, an invisible power gathered in the air, affecting Fairy Dongfang Six’s body.
“It’s really happening!” Young Master Phoenix Slayer, who was lying on the air conditioner, blinked.
Everyone in the room could sense the power.
Song Shuhang asked, “Did it work?”
Fairy Dongfang Six wriggled her neck left and right. “Nope, I don’t feel like I’m bound by anything.”
“No, this can’t be right. Just after little friend Song Shuhang commanded, there was some power that affected your body,” Young Master Phoenix Slayer said.
Fairy Dongfang Six thought for a moment, and then said, “At that instant, I did indeed feel something wrap around me… And then it slid off my body without binding me.”
Little Cai said curiously, “Slid off your body? How did that happen?”
“Perhaps it’s because Fellow Daoist Song’s realm is lower than Fairy Dongfang Six’s. As mentioned by Senior Seventh Cultivator of True Virtue, this function is normally only used on people with strength lower than the user’s,” Demon Monarch Nirvana guessed.
“That isn’t right, either. The ‘binding’ effect had already started to take effect. Fairy Dongfang Six said she could feel something wrapped around her body, but then it just slid off. Something must have gone wrong with the process.” Venerable Seventh Cultivator of True Virtue held his chin.
“I think I’ve got it.” Young Master Phoenix Slayer raised his hand, and said, “Imagine this: when people talk about binding someone, what would immediately come to mind would be a rope. Then, under what circumstances would that robe just slide off a person’s body?”
“When it isn’t tied up correctly… or perhaps it was a noose, but the noose was too loose,” Su Clan’s Sixteen answered.
“Right! As such, I suspect that when little friend Shuhang used ‘bind’, his feelings weren’t strong enough. A Profound Sage’s ‘absolute command’ should carry the will of an Eighth Stage Profound Sage. So, when little friend Shuhang uses the ‘bind’ command, he should picture Fairy Dongfang Six getting bound. The stronger the image, the better,” Young Master Phoenix Slayer said.
“That makes sense. Shuhang, give it another try,” Fairy Dongfang Six said while smiling.
Song Shuhang: “…”
So I have to imagine Fairy Dongfang Six being tied up by a rope? But tied up in what way?
“Little friend Shuhang, if you don’t have much experience in this field, you can just imagine Fairy Dongfang Six as a wooden pillar, and then tie a rope around her multiple times,” Venerable Seventh Cultivator of True Virtue said with a laugh.
Fairy Dongfang Six objected, “Hey, hey, hey. Senior Seventh Cultivator of True Virtue, have you ever seen a wooden pillar as beautiful as me?”
“I’m going to give it another go,” Song Shuhang said.
The method that Senior Seventh Cultivator of True Virtue mentioned might work.
Song Shuhang closed his eyes and started visualizing stuff in his head. He didn’t picture Fairy Dongfang Six becoming a wooden pillar, but rather only imagined a long rope tying around her like how it would around a wooden pillar.
After he finished visualizing it in his head, Song Shuhang shouted once again, “Bind!”
The power of the word was then mobilized through the sage seal.
All the seniors in the area felt the invisible binding power once again.
And this time, Fairy Dongfang Six’s eyes lit up. “Ah, I really got tied up! An invisible power wrapped around me, directly shackling me. Eh… wait a minute, don’t bind me so tightly, I’m going to lose my breath.”
Fairy Dongfang Six was different from a wooden pillar. She had a curvy figure, and as such, the binding method for a wooden pillar would obviously not be suitable for her body.
“It actually worked?” Demon Monarch Nirvana held his chin… F*ck! If so, then although Fellow Daoist Song is only at the Fourth Stage Realm, he doesn’t need to be afraid of Fifth and Sixth Stage cultivators!
At this moment, Venerable Seventh Cultivator of True Virtue spoke, “Fairy Dongfang Six, how strong is the ‘bind’ ability?”
“I can’t breathe, it’s quite difficult to bear,” Fairy Dongfang Six said.
Venerable Seventh Cultivator of True Virtue then asked, “Can you break free?”
“Hm… I’ll try.” After Fairy Dongfang Six said as she operated her spiritual energy. Then, as soon as she struggled a bit, the invisible ‘bind’ that wrapped around her body came loose.
Fairy Dongfang Six stretched her neck. “It isn’t that strong; it would at most be at the level of a Fourth Stage binding magical technique.”
“If it is so, the power of the ‘absolute command’ bind isn’t enough; it should be limited to the realm at which little friend Song Shuhang is at. I’m afraid that this is also the reason Eighth Stage Profound Sages only use the ‘absolute command’ to deal with cultivators of lower realm,” Venerable Seventh Cultivator of True Virtue said.
“Even so, when little friend Shuhang is in a fight with an ordinary Fifth Stage cultivator, if he were to suddenly use the ‘absolute command’ function, he might gain an advantage over the other party,” Young Master Phoenix Slayer said.
“I feel that… at least for the time being, there isn’t a Fifth Stage Spiritual Emperor that would dare challenge Fellow Daoist Song to a battle.” Demon Monarch Nirvana shrugged his shoulders, and said, “With the prestige of the first Sage in a thousand years, who among the fellow daoists who don’t know the truth would dare challenge him?”
“Fellow Daoist Nirvana has a point,” Young Master Phoenix Slayer said.
“Currently, all the practitioners in the universe believe Song Shuhang to be the first Sage in a thousand years. With such prestige, no normal Fifth Stage Spiritual Emperor would even think about challenging him.”
“I have another idea,” Young Master Phoenix Slayer added. “Song Shuhang’s ‘absolute command’ ability isn’t limited to only using the binding technique, right? Couldn’t one use the ability in a more abstract way?”
Venerable Seventh Cultivator of True Virtue asked, “For example?”
“For example, when giving another person an order using the ‘absolute command’ ability, would they follow it? This should also fall in the field of the ‘absolute command’,” Young Master Phoenix Slayer said.
“Giving another person an order? For example, like getting them to kneel down?” Venerable Seventh Cultivator of True Virtue said. “That might be possible. Little friend Shuhang, how about you try it out?”
If the ‘absolute command’ ability could really do such a thing, then it would be quite interesting.
If it was so, when faced with an enemy with strength lower than his own in the future, Song Shuhang just had to shout, “Trash, kneel down!”
Enemy: “Who do you think you are? You want me to kneel to you? In your dreams!”
Then, although the enemy stubbornly resisted, their knees would still give in.
The scene would be quite amusing.
After Venerable Seventh Cultivator of True Virtue finished speaking, everyone’s eyes gathered on Fairy Dongfang Six.
“Hey! Don’t command me to kneel down. A woman’s knees are like gold. Apart from my teacher and my parents, I only want to pay homage to my husband on the day of our marriage.” Fairy Dongfang Six refused.
Young Master Phoenix Slayer said, “I won’t kneel, either! If you make me kneel, we’ll become enemies!”
“Actually, Shuhang doesn’t even need to command you to kneel, he could just command you to lie down. As long as we can see if he is able to use the ability to make people act a certain way, it should already be fine,” Demon Monarch Nirvana said.
“If it’s lying down, then I’m fine with you trying it out on me!” Fairy Dongfang Six said with interest. “Come, I’m ready!”
Song Shuhang asked, “You want me to command you to lie down?”
“Yup, just command me to lie down. Don’t you dare command me to kneel!” Fairy Dongfang Six warned.
“Okay.” Based on his past experience, Song Shuhang first visualized the scene of Fairy Dongfang Six lying on the ground in his mind, and then shouted through the power of the Sage Seal, “Lie down!”
Fairy Dongfang Six swayed a little, but she was able to resist.
“No, it’s not strong enough. Shuhang, try again!” Fairy Dongfang Six called out––she seemed to be enjoying it.
“Lie down!” Song Shuhang shouted through the Sage Seal once again.
This time, Song Shuhang gathered his mental energy using the ❮True Self Meditation Scripture❯ when he shouted, involuntarily using his ‘Mouth Aperture’ talent as well.
When Song Shuhang was at the First Stage Realm, he had awakened two kinds of talents, one from the ‘Eye Aperture’ and one from the ‘Mouth Aperture’. The ‘Eye Aperture’ talent was Expert Sight, which was also known as bullet time.
As for the ‘Mouth Aperture’ talent, it was Illusory Sound. It allowed Song Shuhang’s voice to shock a person’s mind.
This time, after Song Shuhang shouted ‘lie down’, Fairy Dongfang Six’s body shook violently, and she lay down without her control.
Lying down on the ground, Fairy Dongfang Six laughed. “Hahahaha, that’s amazing. At that instant, it felt like my entire body was going to float. I insisted on not letting my body lie down, but I couldn’t control myself, and it went down on its own. That’s really cool!”
“It actually worked. As expected of the power of the Sage Seal,” Venerable Seventh Cultivator of True Virtue said lightly––if Song Shuhang could do this, then an Eighth Stage Profound Sage could definitely do better.
That was to say, even cultivators at the peak of the Seventh Stage would have little to no ability to resist when facing the ‘absolute command’ ability of an Eighth Stage Profound Sage.
If an Eighth Stage Profound Sage gathers their strength and shouts ‘kneel down’, I’m afraid that even Seventh Stage Venerables can only kneel down regardless of their will.
Venerable Seventh Cultivator of True Virtue secretly clenched his fists. I have to get to the Eighth Stage Profound Sage Realm!
“Wonderful!” Young Master Phoenix Slayer’s eyes suddenly brightened up, and he said, “Since little friend Shuhang’s ability could get Fairy Dongfang Six to lie down, would he be able to use more complex commands?”
Fairy Dongfang Six jumped up from the ground and asked, excited, “For example?”
…Was she addicted to getting experimented on?
Young Master Phoenix Slayer said, “For example, little friend Shuhang could command Fairy Dongfang Six to press on the brakes instead of the gas when she’s about to hit a person or object while driving!”
Fairy Dongfang Six’s driving skills were terrible, but the biggest problem of kamikaze drivers like her was that they stepped on the gas when they wanted to step on the brakes.
Venerable Seventh Cultivator of True Virtue held his chin, and spoke, “Would such a complicated command work?”
Young Master Phoenix Slayer slightly smiled. “The command phrase could be shortened; it should be enough as long as it expresses what one wants to convey. Moreover, though it might seem complicated, there’s only a single action in this command––which is braking when necessary. I think that if he was able to get the ‘lie down’ command to work, then the ‘brake’ command should also work.”
“Good idea.” Fairy Dongfang Six’s eyes brightened up––if it really worked, then she might be able to get rid of her kamikaze driver title.
Fairy Dongfang Six stared at Song Shuhang and said, full of expectation, “Little friend Shuhang, try using that command on me!”
