She's a Legendary Demon Hunter [Rebirth] - Chapter 22
It was already afternoon when Mi Wan woke up. Butler Ye, Dr. Zhao, and a few nurses stood by her side. As soon as she was about to get up, she noticed that her hand seemed to be wrapped by something. She consciously lifted her hands and found that all ten of her fingers had been wrapped up to look like radishes.
“Miss, you’re awake.” Butler Ye came over with a glass of water and said, “Are you thirsty? Drink some water.”
Mi Wan’s hands were wrapped too thick. When she was holding the cup, she almost couldn’t hold it firmly.
“Here, I’ll do it.” Butler Ye hurriedly took back the cup and set it directly by Mi Wan’s lips.
“What happened to me?” After drinking some water, Mi Wan pretended to be clueless and asked.
“You went through a withdrawal episode again last night. It was so painful that you lost consciousness.” As they spent more time with each other during this period, Butler Ye had long changed his initial opinion of Mi Wan. His tone was filled with concern as he asked, “Why didn’t you call us again?”
“That’s right, Miss Mi, you were in a very dangerous situation this time. You need medicine to coordinate with drug rehabilitation,” Dr. Zhao also said.
“I’m fine, aren’t I?” Mi Wan smiled weakly. With them around, she could not directly heal her body with spiritual power. Otherwise, her pale complexion would turn ruddy in an instant, which could be quite scary.
“You’re so lucky that you’ve managed to survive.” Dr. Zhao flipped through the medical records and added with a hint of joy, “Although your reaction was severe this time, it also indicates that your rehabilitation is almost successful.”
“Didn’t you say I still have a week to go?” Asked Mi Wan.
“Correct. It takes some time for you to completely detoxify yourself. But from this point forward, your body will no longer experience intense withdrawal reactions,” Dr. Zhao continued, “You have powered through the worst few withdrawal episodes. Even if there is another withdrawal episode later in the future, it would just be a minor reaction. After that, all we need to do is wait for your body to recover.”
“Are you saying that… My withdrawals won’t act up like it did last night?” Mi Wan said in surprise.
“Yes, but there will still be some side effects, such as fatigue, sleepiness, weakness, yawning and tears. But this won’t last. As long as you take your medicine on time and continue physical training, you can soon overcome it.” Doctor Zhao simplified the details. He admired those who could rely on their own perseverance to quit drugs.
“Butler Ye, look, I’ve successfully completed drug rehabilitation.” Mi Wan chose Butler Ye as the first person to receive her announcement.
“Mmm, yes, the young lady is impressive.” Butler Ye was also proud of her achievements.
“Then, I no longer have to be on house arrest?” Mi Wan took the opportunity to ask.
“… Before your body recovers completely, it’s better for you to stay here for the time being.” Butler Ye’s smile faded and he calmed down instantly. That was close. He almost got carried away along with her. He must not let their efforts go to waste.
“Oh~~” Mi Wan sighed begrudgingly.
“Ahem… I’ll just go and ask Mrs. Zhang to make you something delicious.” Butler Ye couldn’t bear being under Mi Wan’s gaze, so he made up an excuse and left the room.
After instructing the kitchen to send Mi Wan food, Butler Ye called Mi Wan’s older brother to report Mi Wan’s condition. “First Young Master, Miss has successfully completed the first stage of drug rehabilitation.”
“She succeeded?” The first son of the Mi Family sounded doubtful.
“Yes, even though I also had my doubts, the Young Miss has really pulled through this time,” Butler Ye said reassuredly, “Because there were many previously failed attempts, I was at first quite hesitant to inform you of this: First Young Master, Miss has the right mindset this time. Not only has she become more cheerful, but also mentally stronger. During this period, whenever the Miss surfers from withdrawal symptoms, she would lock herself in her room and struggle through the effects on her own. Her ten fingernails went through several vicious cycles of breaking and regrowth, and even now, not a single one has recovered its shape.
“…” There was a moment of silence on the other end of the phone, but Butler Ye clearly noticed a change in his First Young Master’s breathing.
“Doctor Zhao also said that Miss was relying on her own willpower to quit her drug addiction. He basically did nothing to help her. And due to the lack of treatment drugs, recovery would occur sooner than expected.” Butler Ye struck while the iron was hot, and continued to rain praise on his young Miss.
“Then Uncle Ye… please continue to keep an eye on her.”
“Of course, also…” Steward Ye hesitated for a moment.
“The Young Lady has been locked up for a few months now.” Not to mention, all that time she had to spend in her previous location, “Miss is a little bored. Do you think it’s suitable to let Miss go out and relax?”
“Detoxification is just the first step of drug rehabilitation. We still don’t know if she is completely free of the physical and mental dependence on drugs.”
“…Yes. Understood.” So the First Young Master was against the idea.
After a pause, the person from the other end of the phone added, “Observe her for another month. If she continues to show good progress, you can decide.”
“Understood.” Butler Ye was delighted. For the First Young Master’s attitude to soften, it meant that he still cared about the young Miss.
Butler Ye told Mi Wan the good news as soon as he could. After hearing that she might be able to leave the room after one more month of “prison sentence”, she was so happy that she rolled around the bed, alarming Butler Ye so much that he kept shouting, “Watch your hands! Watch your hands!”
The author had something to say: Mrs. Zhang came to deliver food to Mi Wan, looking a little sullen.
Mi Wan: What’s wrong with you, Mrs. Zhang?
Mrs. Zhang: I’m fine. I just can’t find my grocery bag.
Mi Wan: …
