She's a Legendary Demon Hunter [Rebirth] - Chapter 13
Chapter 13: Paired Cultivation?, Part 1
Mi Wan watched herself in surprise as she got farther and farther away from the bed. It was as if her body was tangled by an invisible string, and dragging her into a room filled with mist.
A cold male voice called out. As Mi Wan was looking for the owner of that voice, a pale and slender hand reached over towards her direction to grab her. The palm shot out rapidly, but it passed through Mi Wan’s body and caught a fistful of air.
Mi Wan also took the opportunity to take a glimpse of the owner of the arm.
“Hi… nice to see you… so you’re taking a shower… haha…” Mi Wan laughed dryly, and her eyes couldn’t help but travel downwards. She noticed that the other party didn’t take off his pants, and found it peculiar.
Does this demon shower without taking off his trousers?
When Fan Chen caught nothing, he was shocked. When he observed the state of the person in front of him, he immediately understood: It was a soul. Although demons were able to cultivate abilities that went against certain natural orders, they could not interfere with affairs dealing with life-and-death.
Fan Chen put on the bathrobe that he had just taken off, before facing the girl in front of him. The girl was barely twenty years old. Her hair was tied up in a bun with a golden hairpin with pearls in the shape of a flower. She wore a tight-fitting jacket made out of animal skin. It was obvious that she died on a wintery day.
“Are you the fat master demon hunter from next door?” Dressed in ancient clothing, with a familiar speech pattern, it was easy to figure out who the owner of this soul was.
“My name is Mi Wan. Mi for rice, Wan for bowl…” Mi Wan introduced herself by her former name out of habit.
“That’s quite… the person resembles the name.” It was a perfect match for her present shell. “… This is my former name. In my current body, Wan isn’t a bowl, it lacks the radical stroke.” Mi Wan couldn’t help but explain.
“Is there any difference?” Fan Chen pushed open the bathroom door and headed to the bedroom. Mi Wan was just thinking about following him, but before she could move, an unknown suction force happened once more and pulled her towards Fan Chen’s side. She felt like she was a kite, and the threads were in the hands of this demon bro in front of her.
“Why did you come over looking like this?” Fan Chen looked at Mi Wan warily. When this person showed up just now, he couldn’t sense it until she came right by his side. Even though he had lived a somewhat more comfortable life over the years, his alertness should not have been reduced to this degree.
“You might not believe this, but I think it’s you who brought me here,” Mi Wan said. Fan Chen frowned. His eyes clearly showed that he really didn’t believe it.
“I was undergoing withdrawals just now, which caused my physical strength and spiritual power to exhaust at the same time. I wanted to have a good sleep, but I didn’t expect that my soul would leave my body as soon as I slept,” Mi Wan explained, “What is even more ridiculous is, this sudden force that dragged me directly to your place.”
Seeing that the other party still was not convinced, Mi Wan continued, “It’s true! Just now when you came out of the bathroom, I was also dragged in front of you by that force.”
Fan Chen lowered his eyes as if he mauled over the possibility behind Mi Wan’s words. Then his body gradually blurred, disappearing from the room. Just when Mi Wan was wondering where this person went, her soul was suddenly dragged by an immense force. She passed straight through the wall and landed in the courtyard.
Fan Chen, who had just disappeared, stood right in front of her.
“I wasn’t lying.” Mi Wan knew that Fan Chen was testing out the validity of her suggestion just now.
She didn’t lie to him. When he moved from his room to the courtyard just now, he clearly saw the force that connected him and Mi Wan. The force was connected to Mi Wan’s soul and his demonic spiritual source. That force originally belonged to him, and it was once again separated from his body. Fan Chen’s eyes darkened as he looked at Mi Wan.
“Were you killed by the Celestial Vine?” “How did you know?” She didn’t remember recounting the cause of her death in front of this person.
“Because… the Celestial Vine was cultivated by me.”
Mi Wan blinked her eyes in shock and stammered, “I… after five hundred years, I finally found my enemy who killed me?”
At that time, she was besieged by a group of demons, and while it should not have been difficult to escape and fight another day, the reason she did not escape was because the Celestial Vine of the Demon Clans trapped her way out.
“… What are your thoughts?” After waiting for a long time, Fan Chen could see that the girl in front of him was in a trance, but he could not feel any other emotions from her.
“For example… revenge?” Fan Chen reminded her.
“No.” Meeting demon bro’s suspicious gaze, Mi Wan explained, “I really don’t. Back then, during the big war between humans and demons, I killed a lot of demons. At that time, I thought that if I were to be killed by demons one day, it was just a part of a vicious cycle, and no particular individual was to be blamed. Besides, even though the sacred weapon was cultivated by you, you were not the one who used it. I can’t just go after the one who sold the knife to the murderer, right?”
Not to mention, she had basically killed all of the demons that had surrounded her back then.
“You are quite open-minded.” Fan Chen couldn’t help but look at Mi Wan again. Even after five hundred years, where humans and demons seemed to be living in harmony, the demon hunters had always claimed to be on the side of justice, and saw no fault in their demon-massacring ancestors.
“Then… Boss, what’s happening to me?” The man deliberately mentioned the Celestial Vine and the cause of her death. Obviously, his current situation was closely tied to the Celestial Vine.
“The power from the Celestial Vine originated from my demonic spiritual source, and its power was absorbed by your soul. Therefore, when your soul leaves your body, this power will call out to the demonic spiritual source inside of my body and return back to me automatically,” Fan Chen explained.
“So, how do we solve this problem?”
“Give me back all the power of the Celestial Vine.”
“How do I give it back?” Mi Wan asked.
“The strength of the Celestial Vine has already soaked into your soul. It’s power can only seep out of you little by little. If you want me to forcefully withdraw it, there is only one way…” Fan Chen looked at Mi Wan.
“Paired cultivation through sex.” Fan Chen narrowed his eyes and waited for her response.
“You….” Mi Wan was shocked, and her soul subconsciously wanted to drift away. However, when her soul was only a meter away from Fan Chen, it was pulled back by force again. After this, Mi Wan was even more embarrassed. “I, I, that…”
The corners of Fan Chen’s mouth curled subconsciously into a smirk. Paired cultivation between a demon hunter and a demon is a formula where one would rather die than try. Mi Wan swayed as she floated in the air: In other words, she only had two choices. One was to continue allowing her soul to float aimlessly, and the other was to be with demon bro and do… what?
If she chose to float slowly and waited until all the power of the Celestial Vine returned to him, even if she was willing to wait, her fresh shell couldn’t. It would start to stink after three days.
It’s either die or sleep. What should I do?
“Fine. Come.” Mi Wan gritted her teeth and decided to close her eyes and bear it for a while. It should pass quickly. Fan Chen’s face turned green all of a sudden. He had never expected that the stone he lifted would hit him back in the face. Immediately, he waved his hand in objection, and withdrew the demonic power that was flowing out of Mi Wan’s soul, temporarily cutting off the connection between the two people.
