She's a Legendary Demon Hunter [Rebirth] - Chapter 24
Mi Wan went silent for a moment, and then asked abruptly, “Can… can you lay eggs?”
Ji Jingjing was stunned by the question, and wasn’t able to recover her composure for quite a while.
But when the sparrow spirit heard Mi Wan’s question, his enthusiasm faltered. He glanced anxiously at his friend and saw that her expression was still normal, before saying, “Master, Jingjing is still single. How can she… she…that?”
Mi Wan did not speak as she stared at Ji Jingjing, and waited for her answer.
“I… can.” After a long pause, Ji Jingjing gritted her teeth and nodded.
“Jingjing?!” The sparrow spirit gave his friend a look of pity. He knew what Jingjing hated the most, was getting pressured to lay eggs.
However, Ji Jingjing seemed to have broken through some sort of psychological barrier. Her complexion had returned to normal. She looked at the Mi Wan and said, “Although I have problems shapeshifting, I have a decent amount of demonic power. If I wanted to, I could lay an egg every three days.”
An egg every three days, that’s a high production rate. Five hundred years ago, it was rare for chicken demons to lay an egg every three days. However, chicken demons had stronger demonic powers back in the day. Stronger the demonic power within the chicken demon, lower the production rate of the eggs. Naturally, the eggs also end up being more nutritious.
“Fine, how about this… I’ll cure your leg, and you give me 100,000 yuan in cash and 100 eggs.” Mi Wan pondered for a while.
“One hundred… Won’t that be…”
“Yes, I can.” Ji Jingjing interrupted the sparrow spirit immediately. “But I may not be able to get you so many eggs at once.”
“Don’t worry. Lay me ten tomorrow and you can take your time to give me the rest.” Mi Wan was not worried about their credibility. On the contrary, she was looking forward to it. If they refuse to pay up, she can always march up their front door and double their debt.
“Then I’ll treat you now.” Mi Wan handed over her half-full milk bottle to the sparrow spirit. The sparrow spirit took it, carefully got out of the car, and closed the door to give the two occupants a quiet treatment environment.
The demonic poison in Ji Jingjing’s body was denser than that of the sparrow’s. It took her a little more time to dispel the demonic poison with her spiritual power. The whole treatment process lasted about half an hour. She could have done it faster, but Ji Jingjing’s legs had not been nourished by the demonic power for a long time, and could not withstand too much impact. Mi Wan also refrained from pushing too much of her spiritual power into Jingjing at once, fearing that the impact of the spiritual power might break her legs. She did not wish to cause Jingjing to be disabled right after fixing her shape shifting issue.
“I have removed 90% of the demonic poison in your body, and left behind 10% of it in your body, so you can’t shapeshift for the time being.” Mi Wan said as she withdrew her spiritual power.
“Why did you leave 10% of it behind?” Ji Jingjing was confused.
“Your legs haven’t been nourished by demonic power for a long time, so they are not as strong as the other parts of your body. If I forcibly remove it, there would be a rush of demonic power entering those limbs, so even if you successfully transformed, you still won’t be able to walk.” Mi Wan explained, “The remaining 10% of the demonic poison doesn’t cause your body much harm. Nourish yourself with demonic power. You should be able to excrete it out of the body within a week at most, and it will also give your legs more time to get used to it.”
“Thank you.” Ji Jingjing expressed her gratitude and lowered her head, staring absentmindedly at her chicken feet for a long while before coming back to her senses. One week, in just a week, she would be able to stand up, and the people in her family would stop telling her that she is going to degenerate.
Mi Wan was unaware of Ji Jingjing’s mood at this time. After the treatment, she opened the door and got out of the car.
“Master, how… is the treatment?” The sparrow was eager to know the answer.
Mi Wan took the half-full bottle of milk and took a sip. Although it was a little cold, the taste was still good. “She’s cured.”
“Really, thank you, Master.” As soon as the sparrow spirit thanked her, he couldn’t wait to get into the car to see the chicken spirit.
Miwan was not interested in listening to their whispers and was in no hurry to collect her fee. She had just used up a lot of spiritual force during the treatment. At this time, she was a little hungry, so she decided to go to the convenience store to buy some food to tie herself over.
The trip didn’t take her more than ten minutes. When she exited the convenience store with a bowl of instant fish cake soup, she noticed that the nanny car was flanked by two more roosters, no, make that two male chicken spirits.
“Damned sparrow, you have a lot of nerve breaking into our chicken tribe’s territory and taking our people!” A male chicken spirit in a red trench coat pointed at the sparrow spirit and shouted aggressively.
“I came in through the front door, but you placed Jingjing under house arrest and won’t let me see her at all.” The sparrow spirit blocked the car door and refused to let them in.
“Get out of the way, or you’ll regret it.” The other green rooster also roared.
“Xiao Wei, let me go back with them.” At this time, Ji Jingjing, who was sitting in the car, also spoke. She knew that the sparrow spirit was not strong enough to defeat these two roosters.
“That’s right, you’d better go back with us. You are a mother hen that can degenerate on us at any time, so you better just go back and lay eggs for our clan. If you’re lucky, you might even hatch some chicks with demonic power.” The red rooster’s tone was degrading.
“You… are going too far. Jingjing won’t degenerate. She will…”
“Are you two roosters robbing me of my eggs?” At first, Mi Wan did not intend to participate in their affairs. No matter what the cause was, it was just in-fighting amongst a nest of chickens. But this red rooster said something wrong. What did he mean by Ji Jingjing returning to lay eggs for them? The hell is that? Ji Jingjing still owed her 100 eggs, which meant that she should be responsible for providing HER eggs for the next year.
This rooster is openly challenging me!
“Who are you?” The red rooster asked.
“For the next year, Ji Jingjing’s eggs will all belong to me.” Mi Wan declared her claim.
“Who do you think you are?” The red rooster flew into a rage.
Who the hell am I? Mi Wan walked over and slapped the red rooster so hard that it reverted back to its original form. Then she cuffed it by the back of its neck and raised it before her eyes. She smiled gently and said, “Who do you think?”
The author had something to say:
Mi Wan:Who else dares to lay a finger on my eggs?
Roosters: Whoa, whoa, whoa~~~
(PR: quacks in panique! )
