Luckily, his brain managed to put a stop to this foolish thought. If he were to tear open the cocoon with his bare hands, Venerable White might instinctively react and give him a punch, and he would die on the spot if that were to happen.
Song Shuhang sighed. He felt that he had no means to get Venerable White out of the cocoon.
Still, was it really that comfortable to sleep inside that cocoon? Venerable White was unwilling to come out even after so much time had passed!
Song Shuhang started to wonder. The last time, when he drank the demodragon medicine, he immediately came out of the cocoon after absorbing the power of the medicine, and didn't get to experience how it felt to sleep inside it. Perhaps he, too, should try to sleep inside the cocoon and see how it felt after he drank some more demodragon medicine and his muscles returned to normality.
At that time, perhaps he, too, would get addicted to sleeping inside a cocoon and refuse to come out?
Just as Shuhang was in deep thoughts, True Monarch Eternal Fire arrived in the proximity of Venerable White's big cocoon.
He greeted Song Shuhang and the others in a refined manner, welcoming them.
Next, he bowed to the cocoon, and said, "Fellow Daoist White, it's been ages since we last met. Have you been doing well recently?"
After a while, Venerable White's lazy voice was transmitted from within the cocoon. "Hmm~"
The corner of Song Shuhang's mouth couldn't help but twitch.
Nevertheless, True Monarch Eternal Fire maintained a calm expression on his face, and said, "Such being the case, I won't disturb you any further, Fellow Daoist White. We will hold a candle and chat all night once you come out."
Venerable White's expressed his agreement from within the cocoon. "Hmm~"
True Monarch Eternal Fire laughed and cupped his hands, leaving as though it was nothing.
Song Shuhang, who stood on one side, felt very awkward at this moment.
After True Monarch Eternal Fire had left, Song Shuhang gently knocked on the cocoon, and said, "Senior White, are you really planning not to come out of that cocoon?"
"Hmm~ let me sleep some more, just a little more," Venerable White said.
Song Shuhang sighed.
Then, he had a sudden idea, and asked, "Senior White, since you are not willing to come out even after so long, is it possible that something happened to your body? Is this the reason you don't want to come out?"
Was it possible that Venerable White had really turned into 'Musclewhite'?
No, that couldn't be. If he had turned into Musclewhite... Venerable White would have been extremely happy, and would have come out of the cocoon immediately to show off in front of the others. Given Senior White's disposition, he would have loved to turn into 'Musclewhite'.
In that case, was it possible that his body underwent some other change, just as Young Master Phoenix Slayer's body did? Perhaps he grew out a tail or something similar?
"Hmm?" Venerable White's half awake and half asleep voice was transmitted from within the cocoon.
"Senior White, did you grow cat ears or a tail? Or perhaps you grew wings and are thus unwilling to come out because you find them embarrassing?" Song Shuhang asked out of curiosity.
"Hmm?" Venerable White half awake and half asleep voice echoed once more. After a while, he yawned, and said, "I'm a human cultivator, why would I grow out such things? Anyway, I won't talk to you anymore. I'm going to sleep for a short while and will plug my ears. I won't reply anymore."
"What? You want to plug your ears?" Song Shuhang immediately said. "Senior White, don't do it! If you plug your ears, how are we supposed to call you when the shooting of the movie starts in a while?!"
Would they really have to call Senior Copper Trigram over and have him disguise as Senior White to continue with the shooting of the movie?
No, that was inappropriate. Only God knew what Immortal Master Copper Trigram might do after disguising as Senior White given his disposition!
After all, Senior Copper Trigram's death seeking skills weren't inferior to that of Thrice Reckless Mad Saber! What would they do if he went to seek death outside after he was disguised as Venerable White?
"Senior White, reply! Don't plug your ears!" Song Shuhang called out.
However, it seemed that Venerable White had already plugged his ears, for he didn't reply to Song Shuhang. He didn't even mumble those random words as before.
"Senior White, don't be like this! You will have to play the main character in a while, and if you don't come out, everyone will get worried. Therefore, quickly come out!" Song Shuhang took a step forward, and started to pat the cocoon.
The nearby True Monarch White Crane looked very distressed at this time. Each time Song Shuhang was patting the cocoon, it felt as though what was being patted was its heart. However, it was also looking forward to seeing Venerable White come out of the cocoon. Wouldn't Venerable White look very adorable if he had grown out a pair of wings? Wouldn't he form an even better pair with itself if that happened?
Therefore, it forcefully restrained its sorrow, and allowed Song Shuhang to pat the cocoon.
Although Song Shuhang had patted the cocoon several times already, there was no reaction from Venerable White.
Had he really plugged his ears?
Song Shuhang clenched his teeth, and said, "From the looks of it, I can only use one last method."
Did people really believe that he had no other method at his disposal aside from breaking the cocoon?
Senior White had been too naive.
This time, he would have no choice but to wake up.
Song Shuhang stretched out his hands and picked up Senior White's cocoon, as well as that other empty cocoon attached to it. Then, he put his strength in his arms and started to shake the two cocoons crazily.
I refuse to believe that Senior White will still be able to sleep given the circumstances!
If he can keep sleeping even in this situation, I will truly admit defeat!
The nearby True Monarch White Crane opened its eyes wide, very worried, and shouted, "Be gentler! Don't shake that empty cocoon!"
The not-too-far-away True Monarch Eternal Fire turned his head around in surprise, glancing at this youngster that was crazily shaking the cocoon in which Venerable White was sleeping.
What was the background of this young man? And from where did he get all that courage? He unexpectedly dared to shake the cocoon Fellow Daoist White was sleeping in like that... wasn't he afraid of death?
Thereupon, the curious True Monarch Eternal Fire asked the nearby True Monarch Fallout, "Fellow Daoist Fallout, what is the background of that boy?"
True Monarch Fallout was likewise looking at Song Shuhang. As the saying went, 'Young people feared nothing'... From a certain point of view, it was just the death-seeking disease in another form.
"That young man is little friend Song Shuhang," True Monarch Fallout explained.
"This name sounds somewhat familiar. May I ask what is the dao name of this little friend?" True Monarch Eternal Fire asked.
"Dao name, huh? That's a rather troublesome question. This little friend has many dao names. Therefore, I just call him 'little friend Seven Dao Names'," True Monarch Fallout replied.
True Monarch Eternal Fire silently nodded his head.
"Little friend Shuhang was the person in charge of greeting Senior White and showing him around when he came out of secluded meditation this time. How can I say it... he is somewhat different from the other fellow daoists of the Nine Provinces Number One Group. Since he started cultivating just recently, his way of thinking is very modern and unpredictable. He is a very interesting member of the new generation." The corner of True Monarch Fallout's mouth rose. What he didn't mention was that this little friend was very well-versed in the art of seeking death.
True Monarch Fallout felt that the 'newcomer' that would one day surpass Thrice Reckless and sit on his throne wouldn't be Immortal Master Copper Trigram, Doudou, or Fellow Daoist Creation... but little friend Song Shuhang! New generations bested the previous ones, with each of them being more and more reckless!
True Monarch Eternal Fire nodded, and then asked, "However, is it really alright for this little friend to shake the cocoon in which Fellow Daoist White is sleeping like that?"
"About this... I don't know, either. Who knows, perhaps Senior White can sleep even more soundly while juggling around like that?" True Monarch Fallout said with a smile.
True Monarch Eternal Fire nodded in agreement. It was really possible!
But right at this time, a loud boom was transmitted from afar.
The two True Monarchs turned their heads around and looked in the direction the noise came from. Soon after, they saw the boy called Song Shuhang—who was shaking Venerable White's big cocoon a while ago—call out in pain. The cocoon fell on his body and pressed him to the ground, and several cracks appeared on the floor.
From the looks of it, Venerable White couldn't bear it anymore after being shaken around, and finally used something akin to the 'Weighty Fall Technique' to increase the weight of the cocoon until it approached that of a small mountain.
As such, little friend Song Shuhang, who just happened to be swinging the cocoon around, was crushed by its weight, and loudly fell to the ground.
Song Shuhang patted the cocoon, and called out, "Aaah! Senior White, don't increase the weight again, my ribs are about to break!"
But the more he was patting the cocoon, the more its weight was increasing.
Song Shuhang immediately understood what was going on and stopped shouting and patting the cocoon. As expected, the weight of the cocoon no longer increased.
Song Shuhang faintly sighed. Seriously... who would have thought that getting a powerful senior out of bed would be such a dangerous task. In particular, this senior that could cause great destruction unintentionally!
Forget it. There wasn't anything he could do right now aside from allowing Senior White to sleep until the shooting of the movie had started!
Yu Jiaojiao and Senior Sister Ye Si arrived next to Song Shuhang.
Yu Jiaojiao had assumed her mother's appearance at this time. She grabbed a branch with her small hand and used it to poke Song Shuhang's face.
It couldn't be helped~
This transformation was the result of an illusory technique, and her body hadn't really transformed. The paws of her original body were rather short, and even after squatting next to Song Shuhang, she was unable to poke his face. As such, she had no choice but to borrow the length of the branch.
Yu Jiaojiao asked, "Are you still alive? If you are alive, roll your eyes."
Song Shuhang cooperated and rolled his eyes.
Yu Jiaojiao laughed. "Hehehe."
Senior Sister Ye Si likewise squatted next to Song Shuhang, and asked in puzzlement, "Shuhang, I wanted to ask you something. Although this senior sleeping inside the cocoon had plugged his ears, couldn't you have just used the secret sound transmission method to contact him when the shooting of the movie had started? Was there really a need for you to be so rash?"
"..." Song Shuhang.
"You didn't forget about the secret sound transmission method, right?" Yu Jiaojiao asked.
"Cough, of course not. I just thought that it was improper to allow Senior White to act in such a manner. He is a grown man, but he unexpectedly refused to get out of bed, and was unwilling to wake up even after so much time had passed. Since everyone was waiting for him, I thought of shaking him awake!" Song Shuhang said with a serious expression on his face.
Senior Sister Ye Si nodded, also with a serious expression on her face. "Oooh..."
Yu Jiaojiao laughed again. "Hehe."
Song Shuhang clenched his teeth, and said, "Alright, don't laugh, and help me move Senior White's cocoon to one side. It's incredibly heavy, and my ribs are on the verge of breaking. It seems there is no other choice but to let Senior White continue sleeping for the time being. However, I have to absolutely wake him up when the shooting of the movie starts."
"Ahahaha." Yu Jiaojiao laughed, and stood up. Then, she stretched out her small claws and tried to move to one side this huge cocoon crushing Song Shuhang's body.
After a short moment...
"Eh? I can't move it!" Yu Jiaojiao used all her strength, but wasn't able to move the cocoon weighing down on Song Shuhang's body even one millimeter.
She was a monster of the Fourth Stage, yet she was completely unable to move this heavy cocoon! How come Song Shuhang, who was beneath this cocoon, hadn't been crushed to death already? Given how heavy the cocoon was, even if Song Shuhang didn't die, he would have at least vomited blood.
Senior Sister Ye Si blinked her eyes, and said, "I will give it a try."
After saying this much, she stretched out her delicate hands and grabbed the cocoon, preparing to move it away.
After a short moment...
Senior Sister Ye Si shook her head, and said, "I wasn't able to move it, either."
She was a human cultivator of the Fifth Stage Realm... wait a moment. Perhaps it was better to say that she was a ghost spirit of the Fifth Stage Realm? Anyway, even with the strength of the Fifth Stage Realm, she was unable to move the cocoon away.
"..." Song Shuhang.
The feminine-looking True Monarch White Crane said sweetly, "Let me give it a try."
In the next moment... it also failed.
Afterward, the nearby Young Master Phoenix Slayer, Fairy Lychee, Cave Lord Snow Wolf, and other fellow daoists tried to move the cocoon away and free Song Shuhang's body, but none of them succeeded.
"From the looks of it, Senior White didn't use something similar to the 'Weighty Fall Technique'. Instead, he used some sort of sealing technique with suppressing capacities. This must be the reason we can't move the cocoon away," Fairy Lychee guessed.
While speaking, she didn't forget to take out her mobile phone and take several selfies with Song Shuhang, who was at this time crushed beneath the cocoon.
The corner of Song Shuhang's mouth twitched. Then, he glanced at Yu Jiaojiao, and his eyes suddenly lit up. "Jiaojiao, can you try to use the Earth Crossing Technique to get me out of here?"
"I'm sorry, but I can't." Yu Jiaojiao smiled, and said, "This is the territory of the White Cloud Academy, and every patch of land is covered with restricting formations. Therefore, I can't use the Earth Crossing Technique here."
"..." Song Shuhang.
"Little friend Shuhang, you don't need to worry too much about this matter. You just have to wait until after Senior White wakes up, and have him get rid of this seal. Fear not, I will let my daughter stay behind to accompany you," Fairy Lychee said.
At the same time, she quickly fiddled with the phone in her hand and uploaded to the Nine Provinces Number One Group all the pictures she took with Song Shuhang.
Even today she looked beautiful.
In the Nine Provinces Number One Group.
After Fairy Lychee uploaded her selfies, a fellow daoist replied.
However, this person wasn't Northern River's Loose Cultivator, but Thrice Reckless Mad Saber.
Thrice Reckless Mad Saber: "Get me out of here... Senior White, please get me out of this place! I'm on the verge of crying myself to sleep. It took me a whole twenty minutes to write this message. I was wrong, I admit my mistakes... this Secret Realm of Slowness is the same as hell!"
Thrice Reckless Mad Saber was really afraid at this time!
All those that liked to seek death were very active by nature, and if they were forced to stay 'still', they would truly go crazy.
After reading this message, the fellow daoists of the group imagined Thrice Reckless Mad Saber's life after getting delivered to this 'Secret Realm of Slowness'.
Fifteen seconds to raise his hand, and other fifteen seconds to take a step...
Fifteen seconds to take out his mobile phone, fifteen seconds to unlock it, a few more seconds to open the Nine Provinces Number One Group...
Then he started typing, taking several seconds to press each key.
Just in this fashion, he typed one letter at a time, using up several seconds for each of them, or perhaps even a minute.
And this was while ignoring the time it would take him to delete and rewrite the words in case he mistyped something! Then, after twenty minutes, Thrice Reckless Mad Saber successfully managed to write the sentence above and press the enter key.
It was a scene that had the power to move people to tears. However, as soon as this scene flashed through the minds of the various fellow daoists of the Nine Provinces Number One Group, the majority of them not only didn't feel compassion, but was even happy.
Northern River's Loose Cultivator: "Eh? You can still send messages from that secret realm? Not bad, not bad."
Thrice Reckless Mad Saber was so desperate that he already thought of committing suicide.
Right at this time, around a hundred kilometers away from the White Cloud Academy...
Su Clan's Seven was riding his flying sword and both his hands were placed behind his back. He had the appearance of a true expert. Behind him, Su Clan's Sixteen was sitting cross-legged and was fiddling with her mobile phone.
Very soon, she saw the group photos that Fairy Lychee had uploaded.
"Pfff~" Sixteen couldn't help but laugh.
