She's a Legendary Demon Hunter [Rebirth] - Chapter 10
“Isn’t your girlfriend a human?” Mi Wan continued to ask.
“Oh yeah, my girlfriend…” As they say, alcohol provides a false sense of courage. The sparrow spirit suddenly glared at Mi Wan and wailed, “It’s all your fault. I no longer have a girlfriend!”
“You don’t have a girlfriend?” Mi Wan was puzzled.
“She misunderstood us last night. You stopped me and didn’t let me explain, so I had to go explain things to her today. In the end, she insisted that I had an affair with you, saying that I was a gold digger, and found myself a pot-bellied rich woman and became her sugar baby phoenix. She won’t listen to any of my explanations, she slapped me, and then broke up with me. Why was I so unlucky… Boohoo… I’ve only been dating her for a month, and I didn’t even get a chance to kiss her yet.”
“…” The pot-bellied rich woman, was she referring to me?
“I’m just a sparrow, why would I turn into a phoenix? Ugh.” The sparrow spirit gave a drunken burp, raised his head and took another swig of alcohol. “I’ve even told my mother that I’ll take my girlfriend back during Chinese New Year. Now that I don’t have a girlfriend anymore, once the New Year comes, my relatives will make fun of me again…”
“It all sounds very miserable,” Mi Wan replied sympathetically.
“It’s all your fault. What did I do to offend you? I just wanted to have a midnight snack with my girlfriend. How did I end up finishing the meal with an ex-girlfriend? Boohoo…” The sparrow spirit was completely inebriated, and hugged his liquor bottle in tears. His crying sounds were devastatingly tragic, showcasing how deep his love was.
Mi Wan scratched her face, and couldn’t help but feel a bit guilty. She did not expect that her actions yesterday would result in the little sparrow’s break up.
“How about.. I provide some compensation for you?”
“Compensation, how are you going to compensate me? Can you get me back together with my girlfriend?”
“Ugh… that’s a little difficult, but I can help you grow a pair of wings or something.” Mi Wan said.
“Then grow them.” With the alcohol clouding his brain, the sparrow spirit did not realize the meaning behind Mi Wan’s words. He was answering subconsciously without paying attention to the other party’s conversation.
Mi Wan glanced around warily, and then pulled the sparrow spirit to turn into a small alley to the side. She immediately concentrated her spiritual force, and focused it into the sparrow spirit’s body, and sucked out a black mass that was enveloped around the sparrow spirit’s demonic spirit source. Earlier, she discovered that although the sparrow spirit’s demonic power was low, shape-shifting was still instinctive to demons. Abnormalities in transformations happen when a demon’s spirit source is damaged, which prevents demonic power from flowing smoothly throughout their bodies.
When Mi Wan wrapped the black mass with her spiritual force and pulled it out of his body, the previously obstructed demonic power within the sparrow spirit suddenly flowed like a waterfall (This analogy sounds tasteful), spurting out like a fountain. In truth, this bit of demonic power was not much, but for the sparrow spirit who had difficulty utilizing his demonic power, he considered his current demonic power to be majestic. For a moment, the sparrow demon could not suppress the demonic power, and its arms involuntarily shifted, changing into a pair of gray wings.
It’s a little ugly.
This was Mi Wan’s criticism of the sparrow’s wings.
“Hey… What happened to my hand?” The sparrow spirit unconsciously fanned his limbs, and all of a sudden, his whole body rose up and shot into the sky.
“Why are you flapping so hard?” Mi Wan looked up at the flying sparrow spirit, wondering if the Demon Hunter Association would invite him over tomorrow for tea. After all, this could be considered… drunk driving for demons?
Anyway, since she has already repaid her debt, and ate her instant noodles, Mi Wan was ready to go home. Picking up the liquor bottle on the ground, Mi Wan walked to the roadside and threw it into the trash can and sighed inwardly. People had become meticulous after five hundred years. Even garbage had to be thrown in designated places.
“Hey, you threw that in the wrong place. Why would you throw it there? Don’t you know that alcohol bottles are recyclable?” The sanitation man who worked in the early mornings reprimanded, “Garbage separation has been around for a long time. Did you attend general education in vain?”.
“…” In addition, Mi Wan’s ignorance with litter separation was amplified by the wealthy privilege of the original host of her body: Looks like it’s not just about being particular, but it also requires a specific type of knowledge!
“Do you know that if you throw away garbage carelessly, we would have to go back and reorganize them…” After being reprimanded by the sanitation man, Mi Wan returned to Demon Bro’s courtyard with a sense of exhaustion that could last a lifetime.
Remembering that she wasn’t able to buy a flower pot, she huffed and puffed, and climbed over the wall twice, hoisting over a flower pot from her own house.
The flower pot that Mi Wan brought over also had flowers planted in it. Without thinking too much, Mi Wan stretched out her hand with intent to dig out the flowers in the flower pot to make space for the little red flower. However, just as her hand reached into the soil, the air around her moved slightly, and Fan Chen instantly appeared in the courtyard.
“Are you planning to dig out this butterfly orchid and plant in the Chinese rose?” Fan Chen’s voice was light and cool. When mixed with the morning fog, it gave off an ethereal and floating sensation, as if it were resonating from the heavenly skies.
Butterfly orchid? Mi Wan looked at the flowers under her hand, and then glanced at the small red flower that she planted in another pot. That’s a Chinese rose?
It seemed like this demon bro was very particular about flowers and recognized quite a few floral varieties.
“Are you a flower demon?” Mi Wan took the opportunity to guess.
“No, I’m a tree demon.”
Mi Wan thought that the demon dude would ignore her. After all, demons are usually unwilling to expose their true forms. Unexpectedly, demon bro here not only answered her, but also took the initiative to reveal his true form.
“Well… You know that I’m a demon hunter, don’t you?”
“Aye.” Fan Chen looked at the Mi Wan and nodded slightly.
“It’s not good to tell me about your original form, right?”
“It doesn’t matter.” Fan Chen was unbothered.
Whether it was because she was fearless, or because she was naturally open minded, she was unable to detect emotions from this demon guy’s tone. However, since she had no intentions to continue catching demons, who cares what he thinks?
Mi Wan did not speak again and continued to dig through the dirt of the flower pot to make space for the little red flower.
“Don’t move.” Fan Chen frowned and directly pressed against the back of Mi Wan’s hand to stop her.
The spiritual force of Mi Wan was stimulated by the presence of demonic power, and as a conditioned reflex, it burst out and poured into the other party’s body through Fan Chen’s fingertips. Mi Wan secretly cursed to herself. She had subconsciously defended herself just now, so the spiritual power she released was aggressive in nature, but she did not expect that this demon guy was unguarded, allowing her spiritual power to directly enter his body. Mi Wan reacted and was about to consciously pull back, but instead, she found that she could no longer feel anything.
Her spiritual energy resembled a clay ox entering the sea. It did not cause even the slightest ripple within this demonic bro’s body. Mi Wan was shocked. Even though she only recovered thirty percent of her spiritual energy, it should not have been this weak.
“The natural heavenly and earthly spiritual energy is thin in today’s world. No person can cultivate spiritual power as rich as yours no matter how talented they are.” Fan Chen glanced towards the other party’s chubby face, which was turning paler by the second, and said with certainty, “That body of yours. It was possessed.”
