She's a Legendary Demon Hunter [Rebirth] - Chapter 8
Mi Wan understood now. The two sides were going to become extinct if they continued to fight, so they joined forces to protect each other. However, the demon hunters remained worried that the demon race would bring disaster to the world, so they set up a Demon Hunter Association.
“The demon race is indeed declining. Your demonic power is weak. I almost couldn’t recognize you as a demon at first.” Mi Wan was not being conceited. There were no demons that could hide their identity from her eyes. However, for this sparrow spirit, Mi Wan was only able to sense a tinge of demonic aura when he sat down next to her. It’s just… so weak!
“I… My mother said that it was already impressive that I can transform into a human form.” The sparrow spirit replied.
“Your mother’s expectations are really low.”
“…” The sparrow demon could not come up with a retort. It’s not like he could say that many demons today could not even transform into human form now. Revealing such an embarrassing fact to the natural enemy of the demon race felt humiliating.
Mi Wan strummed her fingers on the table thoughtfully. Since humans and demons were coexisting peacefully, she no longer needed to catch demons everywhere like she used to. Instead, she could try and live as an ordinary wealthy lady. Mi Wan’s original dream was to live as an average person. However, since the original owner of this body came from a rich family, she had to reluctantly change that dream to the ‘rich young lady’. Mmhmm, that is not too much to ask.
“I’m leaving.” Quite a while had passed, so it was almost time to go back.
“Wonton, ten yuan.” Seeing that Mi Wan was about to leave, the boss shouted and drank a mouthful of water.
“He’s paying.” Mi Wan patted the sparrow spirit’s shoulder.
“…” The sparrow spirit resignedly pulled out his wallet.
Mi Wan retraced her steps back to the courtyard from earlier. When she saw that the door of the courtyard was unlocked, she was immediately delighted. It seemed that this demon brother had nonverbally allowed her to borrow his property to climb over the wall.
Through the door, close the door, lock the door, and over the wall she went.
Mi Wan, who was hanging on the top of the wall, was once again determined to lose weight.
In the house behind Mi Wan, Fan Chen leaned against the window on the second floor. Watching the chubby girl’s slightly comical motions while climbing over the wall, a trace of confusion flashed behind his eyes. Why did this person emit a sense of familiarity?
Furthermore, there should not have been an awakened demon hunter with such great spiritual power in today’s world.
Mi Wan made it over to her own family’s courtyard, quietly sneaked back to her bedroom, covered herself with the quilt and went back to sleep.
Early next morning, while halfway through breakfast, Mi Wan received a somewhat complicated gaze from Butler Ye.
“What can I do for you?” Mi Wan asked as she took a bite of a poached egg.
“Miss… Miss, were you suffering from withdrawals last night?” Butler Ye thought of the quilt that Mrs. Zhang had shown him just now. It was a brand-new quilt from Mi Wan’s room that was just laid out yesterday, and it had irregular tears all over the surface. The only conclusion he could come up with was that these tears were all ripped up by Mi Wan’s bare hands.
“Uh huh.” Mi Wan calmly affirmed.
“Then, Miss… why didn’t you call us?” Last night peace was not interrupted by a single sound.
“You can’t help me even if I do call.”
“…” Butler Ye cleared his throat for quite a while before saying, “Withdrawals episodes are dangerous. If we watch from the side, we could prevent you from hurting yourself.”
“I won’t commit self-harm.” Mi Wan retained the memory of the original owner of the body. She was aware that the previous host would become uncontrollable when withdrawals hit and end up hurting herself. The current Mi Wan would not hurt herself, but the probability of her hurting others was a little high. For the sake of everyone’s safety, Mi Wan felt that it would be better if no one was by her side while she underwent withdrawals.
“Then I’ll ask Doctor Zhao to come over and give you a checkup.” Butler Ye spoke again.
“Okay.” Mi Wan reached out to grab another steamed bun and felt a slight pain on her fingertips. “Butler, can you find me a nail clipper? My nails are broken.” She said as she showed her fingernails.
Butler Ye glanced over and immediately widened his eyes. On Mi Wan’s ten fleshy fingers, there were six or seven broken fingernails. Two of them were still hanging on the edge, but the breaks were ripped along the flesh, and it looked painful. From this view, he could imagine how miserable the situation was when the withdrawals occurred last night.
The Young Miss didn’t break things or hurt herself, but instead, endured everything quietly all alone in her room.
“Very well,” Butler Ye had some mixed feelings as he sent someone to bring the nail clippers, and then arranged for a doctor to come and do a health checkup.
Watching the relaxed and cooperative young lady, Butler Ye suddenly had an inkling. The young lady really did want to break out of her drug addiction this time.
He subconsciously wanted to break the news to the Master and First Young Master, but…
— If she is still alive, don’t call me.
Forget it, it was better to wait until the drug addiction was completely eradicated. Once a person gets involved with drugs, it becomes extremely difficult to completely get rid of it from their system. In order to help the young lady with her drug rehabilitation, he had studied a lot about these kinds of information.
There were plenty of tough men who failed to break through their addiction in the end, much less considering a young lady who was a delicate and weak girl and had never endured much suffering in her life.
The Young Miss was not the brightest since childhood. Compared with the Second Young Master’s intellect, the young lady did not resemble a child of the Mi family. Logically, given her family background, she did not need to be smart, but the Young Lady was sensitive and self-deprecative.
Though she could not hold a candle against her siblings, she insisted on comparing herself to them. The more competitive she got, the gloomier she became. Even her own family was unwilling to talk to her because of her awkward personality. At first, they only thought that the young lady’s personality was a bit strange, but no one expected that she would one day use drugs to lose weight.
When he first heard the news, even the usually quiet First Young Master became so angry that he asked, “Are you out of your mind?”
“Miss, persevere. Half a year will pass quickly.” Butler Ye could not help but encourage her. As long as he kept a close watch on the young lady, this addiction could definitely be overcome.
What? Rehabilitation takes half a year?!
Looks like she has to build a positive relationship with the Big Brother Demon next door.
