She's a Legendary Demon Hunter [Rebirth] - Chapter 31
Did the dog demon just say that he would give me his demonic source?
The gray fur on the large dog was dripping with water, soaking a large patch of carpet under its feet. The dog’s wet fur pressed tightly against its body, exposing the scabbed wounds that were still healing. It looked extremely pitiful.
Mi Wan wanted to read the facial expressions on the dog demon, but with its furry puppy face, she found it difficult to decipher its emotions.
But it did spend all that effort running over in the middle of the night and even bolted straight to her bedroom like it had a death wish. This daring spirit had gambled with its life, so she doubted that it was trying to deceive her.
“What use… is your demonic source?” Mi Wan asked.
“Woof Woof Woof~~” The demon began promoting his demonic source.
(You can refine medicine with it, you can increase your cultivation, and… and you can also increase… the likelihood of demonic progeny in the next generation of a demon. Although it’s not useful to humans, you can still sell it for a lot of money.)
Except for the last suggestion, the other benefits that the dog demon listed did not appeal to Mi Wan. Also, the last suggestion was selling it. Though it would require her to find a demon that would do such a trade. So troublesome. It’s easier to just rob them.
(Ahem, of course, this only applies to bad demons)
Mi Wan silently added that sentence in her thoughts.
It made Mi Wan very curious about the events that caused the dog demon to willingly sacrifice its demonic source to her.
“What do you want in return?” Mi Wan asked.
“Woof Woof Woof~~~”
(The old man is ill and getting treated at the hospital. I want you to pay for his treatment.)
“After paying for the medical expenses, you will give me your demonic source?” Mi Wan squatted down and leveled her gaze with the big dog’s, instead of looking down on it from the top.
“Woof Woof Woof~~”
(I promised the old man that I will be by his side till the day he dies, so you will have to wait until the old man passes before I can give you my demonic source.) The dog demon added.
“So… you want to strike a high-risk bargain.” Mi Wan chuckled lightly.
“Woof Woof Woof~~” The large dog sounded anxious as it rigorously shook its doggy head.
(I’m not going to run away from this debt. I’ve long lost the will to live so I won’t run away. If you don’t believe me, you can levy restrictions on me)
“If I want your demonic source, I can just kill you and take it directly.”
“Woof!” The large dog froze, its body felt colder now than it did while it ran in the rain. If his doggy coat wasn’t already wet and heavy from the rain, his fur would have been standing up on its end at this very moment.
“Young Miss.” At this moment, a person rounded the corner of the staircase and alerted Mi Wan with a blanket in his hand, “Butler Ye said that it’s not good for this dog to run about while it’s wet. Let me clean it up a little.”
“Then give it a bath while you are at it.” Mi Wan patted the dog’s head and scolded it with a smile, “Dummy. Go wash up then come see me again.”
The person that walked up to the big dog with a blanket was still a bit hesitant.
“Relax, it’s really docile and doesn’t bite.” With that, Mi Wan looked pointedly at the large dog again. The dog could read the mood. With a soft whine, it obediently lowered itself to the ground.
“It really is obedient.” Seeing the large dog lying down, the man was immediately relieved. He opened the blanket and wrapped it firmly around the dog, before picking it up steadily. He even scrubbed the dog’s head, “You are quite heavy, time to take a bath.”
After washing the dog, it took more than half an hour to dry its fur, by the time it was all said and done, Butler Ye had already finished preparing its meal. The old residence did not have food specifically meant for dogs. The meal prepared was a mix of various leftovers from that night’s dinner.
After a bath, the big dog looked extra pitiful. While it was eating, there was even a nurse bandaging its wounds beside it. Her movements were gentler than when she was wrapping up Mi Wan’s injured fingers.
“This dog is so pitiful. Its body is full of injuries and it even got caught in the rain. Dr. Zhao, please bring over some anti-inflammatory medication.”
“My medicine is for people.” Dr. Zhao was speechless.
“If humans can use it, then dogs can use it too. Go get it…”
“…” Dr. Zhao had no choice but to go back to the house in his pajamas to get the medicine. Before he came to Mi residence, he prepared a lot of wound care medications because Mi Wan had a history of self-mutilation. Now that Mi Wan no longer needed it, he could just give it to the dog.
The group that accompanied Mi Wan also contained themselves within the walls of this old residence and rarely left the premises. The appearance of a dog had everyone excited and they gathered around the furry animal to spoil it with food.
The large dog had never been so degraded by humans before, but under Mi Wan’s presence, it dared not resist. Its face was utterly crestfallen. He was even forced to do some stupid tricks like shaking hands with several humans.
Seeing that they were having fun, Mi Wan went back upstairs. When the dog saw Mi Wan leaving, he stood up quickly and followed Mi Wan to her room, ignoring everyone else. After walking in, the large dog did not speak and simply crouched in front of Mi Wan, staring at her with a pair of bright black eyes.
