She's a Legendary Demon Hunter [Rebirth] - Chapter 26
“It’s almost time. I still have stuff to do. Leave me your cell phone number. Once you have the eggs, call me.” Mi Wan passed her mobile phone to the sparrow spirit, indicating that he should save his number in it.
The sparrow spirit took it and saved his number as he was told, and even saved it under his official name.
“Wu Wei?” Mi Wan found the name difficult to remember, compared to calling him for what he was, so she changed the name to ‘sparrow spirit’ on the spot, “Mmm. This is easier to remember.”
“…” What else could he say? Nothing.
“Time to go.” With a wave of one hand and carrying her half-eaten fish cakes in another, Mi Wan left, one step at a time.
“Little Wei, it’s better to avoid this Master in the future.” After Mi Wan left, Ji Jingjing breathed a sigh of relief, her face slightly paled as she said, “That was an emotional rollercoaster.”
“Mmhmm.” When Mi Wan threatened to roast a sparrow previously, he thought it was just a verbal threat He never thought the other party would actually be willing to kill a demon without blinking an eye.
What they did not understand was, 500 years ago, demon hunters and demons would fight to the death when they cross paths. Mi Wan was considered pretty reasonable for not killing them at first sight. She had just awakened from a long slumber and had not fully integrated herself into this society, so she still wasn’t able to fully change her habits when interacting with demons.
When she left the sparrow spirit, Mi Wan returned to the courtyard, grabbed her grocery bag and went straight to knock on the main door.
The large door to the living room opened from the inside after she knocked. When Mi Wan entered with her belongings, she saw Fan Chen slowly walking down from the second floor.
“Demon Bro, thank you for bringing me home yesterday, or else I would have been exposed.” Mi Wan talked as she pulled a bunch of stuff from her grocery bag. In no time, she spread a few dozen snacks in front of Fan Chen.
Fan Chen swept his eyes across the table full of fancy packaging and subconsciously frowned.
“These are all the tastier snacks I’ve had. It’s all for you.” Mi Wan pushed the mound of snacks towards the tree demon.
“This is your so-called special thanks?” Giving him snacks?
“No, I just thought these are yummy, so I’m sharing them with you. I’m preparing your thank you gift.” Mi Wan exclaimed happily, “When I was out today, I met a hen and asked for a couple of eggs. Eggs from a chicken spirit are nutritious and very effective for brewing medicine.”
“There’s a chicken spirit who’s willing to lay eggs for you?” Fan Chen was doubtful. Hens can independently produce eggs, and so do rooster spirits, naturally. The difference lay in the chicken spirits’ egg production process, where the spirits themselves would take a part of their demonic energy and transform it into nutrients. This is why when a chicken spirit starts production, even though their eggs will be extraordinarily nutritious, it would subsequently ruin their personal spiritual cultivation. Because of that, today’s chicken spirits were vehemently against laying eggs unless it was for the sake of preserving their legacy.
“Yep. I helped cleanse her demonic poison in exchange for a hundred eggs.” Mi Wan became more and more excited, feeling like she had hit the jackpot.
“You helped her cleanse her demonic poison?” Fan Chen was surprised. He had thought that Mi Wan was willing to help him cultivate medicine for her own benefit, but never expected that she would willingly treat other demons. This demon hunter really does not conform to social expectations from 500 years ago.
“How would a demon hunter like you know how to medically treat demons?” Fan Chen was long curious about this detail.
“Because of my teacher.” Mi Wan explained, “My teacher came from a long line of medical practitioners. His ancestors are all doctors. Ever since he was a child, my teacher would learn medicine from his family. It was said that when he was 7, he could diagnose basic ailments with a single look. However, when he was slightly over 7, he met my grand teacher and became a demon hunter. Once he learned about the existence of demons, my teacher became extremely interested in them, so he concentrated on researching ways to medically treat demons. If not for the great war between humans and demons, perhaps my teacher would have turned our sect into a medical hall for demons.”
“It sounds like…your teacher was quite close to the demonic race.” Yan Chen said.
“But in the end… he also died in the hands of demons.” Mi Wan became depressed.
Fan Chen became quiet, not knowing what to say. After all, he was also from the demonic race.
“But it’s okay! In the end, my seniors and I did avenge him.” Mi Wan chuckled, her despondent look disappeared as if it never was there to begin with.
Fan Chen had something more to say, when Mi Wan’s mobile phone suddenly rang. Pulling her phone out, she noticed that it was an unfamiliar number calling. At first she wanted to ignore it, but after a bit of hesitation, Mi Wan accepted the call. After all, this phone was replaced and the numbers that the previous owner had saved were all lost, so the call might be from someone she knew.
“Hello, who’s this?”
“Excuse me, is this Miss Mi Wan?” On the other side of the line was a gentle male voice.
“I am, and you are?” Mi Wan asked.
“I am from the Demon Hunter Association. Head of the Kang city branch, Bai Feng.”
“The Demon Hunter Association?” Mi Wan was shocked and tilted her head to look at Fan Chen who also looked surprised, “Why are you looking for me?”
“We would like to do a follow-up with you. On November 1st, did you catch a bat demon around the surrounding areas of Huanlong road?” Bai Feng asked.
“How did you know?” Mi Wan was alarmed. She had intentionally hid away that day so no one should have noticed her.
“Ahem… There is a transaction receipt on the bat demon’s phone.”
Crap. Stupid digital age.
The author has something to say: Why are the lot of you imagining a humanoid laying eggs? That being is still a demon, and their original forms are their species.
