She's a Legendary Demon Hunter [Rebirth] - Chapter 29
The eggs laid by a chicken spirit were quite nutritious. Normal people who consumed one of them would gain benefits similar to that of a century old ginseng. Demons who eat it would benefit slightly less, but through Mi Wan’s secret cultivation techniques, the effects should be on par. It took Mi Wan twice as long to cultivate with 10 eggs but after the tree demon bro drank the medicine, the wound on his chest still showed no signs of improvement.
There was only one explanation for this phenomena; the tree demon bro’s injury was too grave and the nutrition from those eggs was far too underwhelming. However, there must be some positive effect, otherwise, the tree demon bro would not have accepted her medicine. Looks like she would have to thoroughly examine the tree demon bro’s wound after her spiritual energy fully recovers.
Mi Wan was deep in thought when she heard a series of knocks. It gave a certain someone who was secretly munching on snacks a fright. She quickly stuffed the snacks in the cabinet before opening the door.
“Auntie Zhang?” Auntie Zhang stood outside the door, holding a quilt.
“Miss, were you asleep?” Auntie Zhang asked.
“No.” Mi Wan shook her head. It was only nine o’clock, how could she possibly sleep?
“Today’s a bit cooler and it’s raining outside. I was worried that you might be cold at night so I got a thick quilt for you.” As she said that, Auntie Zhang walked in with the quilt and made Mi Wan’s bed as she talked.
“There’s no need, I’m not cold.”
“Butler Ye has said it before; Young Miss, your body is still in its recovery week. We cannot be careless.” Auntie Zhang smiled, “I dried this quilt yesterday. You would feel good wrapped up in it.”
“Thank you, Auntie Zhang.” Standing by the bed, Mi Wan could smell the fresh scent from the quilt. It did feel comforting. She was in love with modern bedding, with it being all silky and soft. It was even more comfortable than her undergarments!
“Miss, let me help you close the window.” After making the bed, Auntie Zhang noticed that the window in Mi Wan’s room was left open.
“Don’t close it yet. The house feels a bit musty, I want a breather.”
“Then don’t forget to close it when you are about to sleep. This rain pour will likely continue until the morning. Don’t catch a cold.” Auntie Zhang noticed that the air in the house was stale, so she did not insist on closing the window and offered a reminder instead.
After she sent Auntie Zhang away, Mi Wan once again recovered the snacks from her cabinet and stared out the window. She disliked rainy days, the gloominess of it made her feel melancholic.
If this rain continued until tomorrow morning, then she would not be able to go out today either. It had been a few days since she left the house.
Mi Wan stubbornly pulled out her mobile phone to check the weather forecast.
Rain, rain, rain…
Three days of continuous rain. I’m going to die from boredom. Hopefully, this modern day technology isn’t too accurate, so we can have clear skies tomorrow.
About 5 kilometers away from the Mi family’s old mansion, there was a small community in disrepair. Due to its low elevation, every time it rained, it would flood the area. Because of this reason, residents in the community gradually left and for those that stayed behind, except for immigrant workers, only the penniless elderly remained.
The owner of the stray dog, Old man Liu, lived in this community. Most unfortunately, his home was right on this level. Every time it poured, rainwater would flow straight from the yard and into his living room.
“Mao Mao. Stay in bed and don’t move. I need to move a few things into the house.” By the time the old man got back from work, his house was already flooded and his injured dog that was resting faithfully at home was currently carefully balancing on a stool. Concerned that his dog might get its injury site infected by the rainwater, he quickly carried his dog to his bed.
“Woof! Woof Woof Woof!” The large dog barked a few times, but the old man could not understand what it was trying to say.
(Don’t go. Those things aren’t worth it. Don’t move them.)
There really wasn’t anything outside, save for a few pots of vegetables the old man had grown to save money.
The large dog really wanted to jump over and stop the old man but it was well aware that if it got its bandages wet, the old man would bring him back to the pet hospital to be rebandaged, and the cost to rebandage was enough to buy the old man several month’s worth of groceries. This was also why it never left the house to greet the old man when it was pouring hard outside.
The large dog anxiously watched the old man carry each pot of vegetables into the house. One pot, two pots…five pots, there were three more pots.
Despite the rolling thunder and pouring rain, the dog could clearly hear the sounds of a smashed flower pot. His greatest fear had become reality.
The dog can no longer stay put. His hind legs kicked off the bed as he leaped down. The house was filled with water, instantly drenching half of its body. The dog rushed out of the living room and found that the old man had fainted in the rain, lying prone against the ground, surrounded by the broken pieces of pottery and a few stems of green sprouts.
Looks like she would have to wait for her spiritual energy to completely recover and personally
“Woof, Woof Woof!”
(Old man! Old man, wake up!)
The large dog used its own body to shield the old man’s face from the rain and pawed insistently to rouse him, but the old man remained unresponsive, his eyes tightly shut.
What to do? What should I do?
The large dog raised its head, turned, and ran out of the courtyard. He rushed towards the door of the neighbor’s courtyard, howling and banging against it.
“What’s wrong, what’s that sound… Doesn’t this dog belong to the old man next door?”
“Did something happen to Uncle Liu?”
Next door lived a young married couple, who immigrated over for work. When they saw the dog pulling the hems of their clothes, they guessed that something might have happened to the old man.
The two of them quickly ran next door and helped carry the old man to his bed.
“Look around quickly. Where did he put his usual medication?” They were the old man’s neighbors for several years, and were aware that he was sick and often relied on his medication.
The young couple turned and noticed that the dog was using its front paw to pull one of the drawers. The pair quickly pulled open the drawer and sure enough, there was a medicine bottle, but it was empty.
