She's a Legendary Demon Hunter [Rebirth] - Chapter 17
“Once my spiritual power recovers, I will use it to try and treat your wound.”
Mi Wan had already left the courtyard for quite some time, but Fan Chen was still standing in his original position, thinking back on the words she said before she left. The itchy numbness in his chest had faded, so he could not help but lower his head and take another two sips of the milk tea.
Actually, this kind of junk food tastes pretty delicious.
Mi Wan headed to the convenience store with her grocery bag on her back. She had recently finished all the snacks she had bought from the store a few days ago, so it was time to buy another batch. Recently, the periods between her withdrawals were becoming longer. Butler Ye said that as long as she persisted for another ten days, she would complete the first step of drug rehabilitation and detoxification, which meant that her body would no longer suffer from random withdrawals like it did before.
It was also because of her good performance that Butler Ye treated her much better. Mi Wan felt that if she continued to keep this progress, she might be released ahead of schedule.
Prior to entering the convenience store, Mi Wan first stopped at the garbage and recycling bins next to the store and disposed of the garbage in her bag.
“The plastic bags are dry rubbish, the beverage bottles can be recycled, the shells of melon seeds… I think it’s wet garbage, and maybe this could also be recycled…”
“You’ve got it wrong.”
The sudden appearance of a voice gave Mi Wan quite a scare.
“Do you always start work this early?” Turning to look at the approaching person, Mi Wan felt a bit helpless.
It’s one o’clock in the morning, and this old man had already started working?
The old man in front of her was the sanitation worker she met on the night she drank with the sparrow spirit. He had lectured Mi Wan on the classification of garbage for half an hour, which left a deep impression on her. However, today the old man was not wearing the eye-catching work clothes of a sanitation worker, but a dark grey coat with patches.
“So I can’t tell you how to separate your garbage if I’m not at work?” The old man glared at the girl.
How could this young lady be so ignorant about garbage and recycling separation?
“No, no. Where did I get it wrong?” Mi Wan humbly asked for advice.
“The glass you just threw, it’s not washed inside, isn’t it?”
“Do you need to wash it? I’ve finished up the strawberry jam.” Besides, it is too much work if she had to wash the garbage before throwing it away.
“You didn’t finish eating all of it. I clearly saw a circle of red at the bottom of the glass. As long as it is edible, it is considered wet garbage.” The old man stared at Mi Wan.
After a moment of silence, an enlightened Mi Wan reached out and retrieved the glass bottle containing strawberry jam from the trash can. She was about to take it to the side and wash it when she heard a crashing sound coming from behind them, mixed in with the sounds of a dog barking.
Mi Wan glanced over curiously with no intentions of getting involved with the commotion. Unexpectedly, it was the old sanitation worker, who was originally reluctant to supervise her, who had a sudden change in expression as he staggered clumsily towards the direction of the barking dog. The old man was very old. His skinny and feeble body was trembling as he walked. Seeing him running like that, Mi Wan was really worried that he might fall and hurt himself at any second.
“Stop! Don’t hit it!” The old man shouted loudly as he ran.
Mi Wan was momentarily stunned. She threw away the glass bottle she had finished washing and also ran over. When she got close, she found out that the noise just now was from three strong men beating up a stray dog. At this time, the stray dog had been subdued, and its body was trapped in a net. The dog was covered in blood and was of an unknown breed. Its two front legs had been beaten and bent out of shape, and it was unable to stand up at all. Its unwavering eyes were vengefully staring at the human who was chasing and beating it.
“No, this dog is too evil. I must kill it.” One of the men in striped clothing was so intimidated by the dog’s glare that it made his hair stand.
“Don’t hit it.” The old man threw himself over the dog, blocking it from three wooden batons. When he saw the stray dog’s miserable situation, his voice trembled angrily, “Why did you hit it?”
“Old man, you’d better get out of the way. This dog is so evil and it might have rabies.” One of them tried to reach out to pull the old man away from the stray dog.
“Nonsense, Mao Mao is very obedient. It’s very obedient and healthy. It doesn’t have rabies.” The old man held the bloody dog in his arms, maintaining a protective posture.
“Old man, is this your dog?” Someone finally got it.
“Why are you chasing after it?” The old man was angry and distressed.
“Old man, this dog bit one of my employees and tore up a lot of our goods.”
“That’s right, and it picked the most expensive goods to tear into. We’ve been holding onto him for several days. Since it is your dog, you have to compensate for it. Otherwise, we will have to kill it.”
