She's a Legendary Demon Hunter [Rebirth] - Chapter 2
They arrived at the hospital and did a thorough checkup.
Mi Wan’s wound was quite deep, but luckily, it did not extend to the internal areas of the brain, and she only suffered from a minor concussion. However, just to be cautious, the doctor wanted to place her under observation in the hospital for two more days.
“Miss, you should focus on recovery in the ward. Let me know if you need anything.” Now that he knew Mi Wan’s injury was not serious, Butler Ye was most concerned about Mi Wan sneaking out of the hospital to buy drugs.
No, I should call two more bodyguards to guard the door.
“That …” As Butler Ye was about to turn around and leave, Mi Wan asked, “Will my … will anyone from the family visit?”
“The Master and Lady are attending a meeting in Country M. The First Young Master is busy with work, and the Second Young Master is about to take his exams, so …”
“I get it, they’re not free.” Mi Wan breathed a sigh of relief.
It’s good they’re not here.
She had not fully merged with the memories of the original owner so any premature visitations from loved ones would expose her.
When she learned that she was in no immediate danger of being exposed, Mi Wan relaxed and laid down. The bed was so soft, and more comfortable than the vibrant green pastures in the mountain behind her training school.
Seeing Mi Wan’s ‘depressed’ look, Butler Ye was slightly sympathetic. The Young Miss only wanted attention from her family, but she went about it the wrong way.
In order to restore spiritual energy, Mi Wan fell into an extremely deep sleep and by the time she woke up, it was midnight. She had been sleeping for more than ten hours.
Clutching her unfamiliar large belly, Mi Wan complained pitifully: “So hunger feels more unbearable when you are fat.”
No can do. Time to go find something to eat.
Mi Wan rose from the bed and walked straight out of the ward. Relying on her memory from the daytime, she was able to find her way out of the hospital smoothly.
“Hey. Greetings. Is there a place nearby that sells food rations?” Mi Wan stopped a kind-looking woman at the entrance of the hospital, her tone carried an antiquated flair. She had not fully adapted to the modern-day speech, which caused her to string up a sentence that combined both modern and ancient terms.
“Oof, little lady needs to learn her language. Your speech is inconsistent. There’s a place outside the hospital. Just go out here, turn left, and in about two hundred meters, there’s a 24-hour convenience store.” The woman pointed towards the road with a smile.
“Thank you.” Mi Wan replied and hurried to the destination. Not long after, she found the convenience store the woman had mentioned.
Upon seeing the convenience store, Mi Wan’s brain automatically gave her an introduction about convenience stores. After a moment’s pause, Mi Wan rushed in.
So many delicious things!
Seeing rows upon rows of shelved goodies, Mi Wan almost drooled. She picked out everything that looked delicious. It wasn’t until the checkout when she realized that she didn’t bring any money.
“Mobile payment is also possible.” The store clerk reminded her. Those who carried around cash in this day and year, with the exception of old men who were ignorant of mobile payment, were few among young people.
“I … I didn’t bring my cell phone.” It’s not that she didn’t bring it. She didn’t even think about a cell phone. When asked by the clerk, it jolted her memory, only to recall that the mobile phone seemed to be lost when the original owner of the body fell into the sinkhole.
“Then you can’t buy it.” The clerk said, and took back everything that was just scanned.
Mi Wan pouted with a sad look on her face. She’s so hungry ~~
“I’ll treat you to instant noodles.” Suddenly, a voice came from behind Mi Wan.
Mi Wan turned her head and discovered a pig smiling gleefully at her.
“Two bowls of instant noodles, I’ll help us make it.” The pig demon who had transformed himself into a middle-aged man, grabbed two bowls of instant noodles and paid for them.
“You’re treating me?” When the instant noodles were filled with hot water and delivered in front of her, Mi Wan narrowed her eyes, as if trying to get a confirmation.
The middle-aged man nodded with a smile: “I think you look very hungry, but instant noodles aren’t nutritious. You’re injured. When you go back, you should ask the family to brew some soup for you.”
“You’re … caring about me?” Mi Wan raised her eyebrows, surprise filled her face. The demon hunter was being cared for by a demon. Now that was a very different experience.
“Of course, come, let’s sit over there and eat.” The middle-aged man smiled cheerfully, beckoning Mi Wan to take her instant noodles and follow him. He was a pig demon, and when he occasionally sees a chubby person, he would unconsciously develop a fondness towards them. Though the girl had a wound on her head, she had a large round figure. One look and you could tell that somewhere in his porky ancestry, she was related to his kind.
Mi Wan’s eyes flickered, and she followed along amusedly, while holding her noodles.
This pig demon is pretty bold. Aside from not running away when he sees me, he even invited me to eat noodles?
Is this a bribe?
But to be honest, this bribe was still very attractive.
“Why, in the current demon world, are you pig demons considered a large demon clan? Do all of you arrogantly prance around in front of a demon hunter?” Mi Wan casually asked as she whiffed at the tempting fragrance of the instant noodles.
The pig demon suddenly tilted to the side, and his whole person fell off the stool.
“You … you …” The pig demon looked at Mi Wan in horror, his fat body trembled.
Now this was a normal reaction.
“Don’t be afraid, seeing that you invited me to eat noodles, I will not kill you today.”
Did you originally … want to kill me?
Like a gust of wind, the pig demon who was rescued by a five-dollar bowl of instant noodles disappeared swiftly without a piggy trace.
Mi Wan was long accustomed to the types that run away like the wind. She calmly peeled open the lid and took a bite of the instant noodles, and then …
Mmm ~~ Pig demon or whatever, how can he compare to the deliciousness of instant noodles?
Oh hey, there is another bowl next to it. Did the pig demon forget to eat it just now? Hmm ~~ I should let him go the next time we meet.
The author has something to say:
Public Announcement: Stay far away from drugs and cherish life! The drug addiction mentioned in this was just to highlight the character’s role, and this is a fantasy genre. The heroine has spiritual power, and her physique is different from ordinary people, so her rehabilitation process sounds easier. In reality, drugs are extremely harmful. Once a drug withdrawal happens, humans can hardly control themselves. Think about the original owner of that body. She died because of drugs. This is why you should stay far away from illegal substances, and cherish life!! (Coming from the crabs who’re afraid of getting locked up.)
