She's a Legendary Demon Hunter [Rebirth] - Chapter 4
Thirty years ago, the eastern suburbs were not called Dongjiao. It was actually the economic center of Kang city. Later, following the implementation of government policies, the business district of the entire urban area began to move north, and the flow of people in the eastern suburbs gradually decreased. In the present day, only a handful of old houses remained in the eastern suburbs, and most of them housed migrant workers. The old Mi residence was located at the center of the eastern suburbs, and it was considered as a part of the business district of this suburb. During the walk, Mi Wan noted all the restaurants along the way. The more she saw, the more satisfied she felt.
“Miss, from this point on, the old residence will be under complete lockdown. Unless you succeed in rehabilitation, you will not be allowed to take a step out of here.” With that, Butler Ye raised his hand, and the security guards behind him immediately scattered to all sides of the courtyard, “I have arranged guards at the front and back doors, and working there for 24 hours a day, on three shift rotations. There will never be a minute for you to get the opportunity to sneak out to buy drugs.”
“…” Who’s going to go out to buy drugs. I’m sick. Like I’ll poison myself!
“This is your mobile phone, and the SIMs card has been replaced for you. You can go online and call at any time, but you cannot invite classmates or friends over.” Butler Ye handed a brand new mobile phone to Mi Wan. Mi Wan had no knowledge of phone models, but the memory of the original owner told her that this brand had good performance, and Butler Ye was very thoughtful; there was even a pink phone case on the back of the phone.
“Thank you, housekeeper.” Mi Wan happily played with her mobile phone, pretending to not understand Butler Ye’s implied suspicions that she would find someone to help her deliver drugs.
“In addition to these two points, if you have other requests, you can directly contact me.”
“I am hungry ~~~” Mi Wan looked up pitifully. It took a lot of spiritual power to restore the wound, which was why she digested food a lot faster.
Didn’t she eat in the hospital just an hour ago?
Butler Ye cleared his throat, but still had the kitchen prepare a meal for Mi Wan. Although the lady was already overweight, gaining weight was always better than taking drugs.
After eating and drinking her fill, Mi Wan returned to her room, and immediately felt around the bed in her bedroom. To her pleasant surprise, the bed was softer than the one in the hospital. Mi Wan happily hugged her blanket and went back to sleep. But this sleep was not sound, because her body suddenly went into withdrawal.
The instant the withdrawal symptoms began, Mi Wan subconsciously used her spiritual power to suppress it. Fortunately, she was able to react immediately, and hurriedly put away her spiritual power so her body could physically overcome it.
The whole process was long and painful. Had Mi Wan not develop her strong willpower from hunting demons at a young age, this episode would have been unbearable. Moreover, according to the memory of the original owner of her body, Mi Wan knew that this was not the most painful period.
No wonder the previous host was unable to quit. This drug was truly powerful.
After waiting out a single round of withdrawal symptoms, Mi Wan felt like her entire body was dragged out of the water. The soft blanket underneath her body was torn to shreds by her. Recalling its softness before falling asleep, Mi Wan could not help but feel depressed. This blanket was far more comfortable than the brocade bedding from the capital’s best hotel that she had stayed over in the past.
Mi Wan laid back down on the bed for a while and used spiritual energy to comb through her vital meridians until her weakened body recovered some strength. She then struggled to get out of the bed and went to the bathroom to take a quick shower.
“I’m hungry again.” Mi Wan clutched her chubby little belly. It felt like after a withdrawal episode, this belly seemed to have lost a lot of weight. Although taking drugs for the sake of weight loss was a bit stupid, you can’t deny that it was still very effective. The results were almost immediate.
Mi Wan turned her head to look at the moon outside her window, and suddenly felt that its shape was particularly similar to the moon the night she ate instant noodles. Why not go out for some instant noodles? Besides, she now has a mobile phone that can be used to… scan and buy stuff.
Once her inner glutton activated, Mi Wan instantly lost self-control. She immediately changed out of her slippers and quietly slipped out of the room.
Leaving the house was not difficult, but the front and back doors were guarded by the men assigned by the housekeeper, so how was she supposed to leave? Though if she really wanted to leave, the guards would not have been able to stop her, but ultimately, that was not a good idea.
Under the cover of the night, Mi Wan pondered for a moment, before her eyes landed on a three-meter-high courtyard wall on the northern side of the old house.
The author has something to say: The male host is next door. Coming soon …
