She's a Legendary Demon Hunter [Rebirth] - Chapter 27
“I’m not giving back the money.” Mi Wan stated without a shred of hesitation. For them to contact her so blatantly, they must want her to pay up.
“…” Bai Feng.
“…” Fan Chen.
Mi Wan puffed out her chest domineeringly to make herself sound more confident. This was the money that the bat demon willingly gave up in exchange for his life. It was neither stolen nor robbed. No way she was giving it back.
“I’m not here to ask you for the money.” It took Bai Feng a while to find his voice again.
“No? Then why are you looking for me?” Once she heard that the other party was not looking for her to take her money, Mi Wan’s attitude instantly became more cordial.
“If I may, which sect does Miss Mi originate from?” Bai Feng asked.
Sect? Of course Mi Wan came from a sect, but after 500 years, it was difficult to tell if her original sect still remained. After all, there weren’t many people left in it back then and even if they did manage to preserve the sect, she would not have come up in a search.
With that thought, Mi Wan replied halfheartedly, “I’m sectless. I’m from the wild.”
She had no intentions of revealing her sect’s origins.
Bai Feng glanced at the pink hair tie in his palm. If his intuition was correct, this was originally a mundane hair tie that was infused with spiritual energy from a demon hunter, turning it into a demon-subduing rope. So far, a total of five days had passed but the spiritual energy inside this hair tie showed no signs of dissipating. This indicated that the spiritual energy came from a demon hunter with powerful cultivation.
“Then Miss Mi must not have a demon hunter I.D.,” Bai Feng chuckled as he changed the subject. It mattered not if she was unwilling to be frank with her background. Having one more powerful demon hunter was always better than having one more powerful demon.
“Nope, I don’t have such an I.D.,” Mi Wan affirmed.
“Then drop by and register with us at your convenience. We will prepare one for you.” Bai Feng offered enticingly.
Mi Wan’s eyes lit up as she replied, “I’m not free as of late. It might take a month before I can register.” Despite not knowing what this demon hunter I.D was good for, based on the memories of the original owner of this body, in this day and age, most official businesses required some sort of license or identification.
“No problem. We will wait for you. Just give me a call when you are ready.” Bai Feng was only concerned whether she might reject his offer and did not mind waiting longer.
“Okay. Then, let me save your contact. What is your name again?” Mi Wan was previously fixated on the idea of not giving up her money, so she never bothered to remember the other party’s name.
“Bai Feng. Bai for white, Feng for peak, like the peak of a mountain.” Bai Feng was unoffended and gladly introduced himself once more.
After she hung up, Mi Wan continued to rummage through her bag for more snacks. She was sincerely grateful towards Tree Demon Bro here. Last night’s withdrawals were extremely vicious, rendering her unconscious until the afternoon. If Tree Demon Bro had not sent her back, Butler Ye would have long contacted the police to report a missing person.
In addition, while she was in a haze, she felt something constricting and stabilizing her body. When she woke up, aside from the injuries on her fingernails, there were no other scars on her the rest of her body, which was likely also Tree Demon Bro’s doing.
“And this one, I heard this was imported from overseas. The convenience stores were all out of stock and it would take a week to replenish it.” Mi Wan was a little forlorn as she lifted a bag of cookies in front of Fan Chen.
Fan Chen did not accept it. His gaze landed on Mi Wan’s injured fingers, “Why aren’t you dealing with your wounds?”
“Oh, this? When I woke up, the butler had already wrapped up all my fingers. If I were to use spiritual energy to heal them, it would scare him to death,” Mi Wan explained.
Fan Chen understood and gave a nod.
“But it’s not bad to let them see me in a miserable state every once in a while. When I pretended to be pitiful in front of the butler today, he agreed to lift my house arrest within a week, hehe…” Mi Wan giggled as she shared the good news with Fan Chen.
Fan Chen was the only person in the world who knew of her origins, and this made Mi Wan feel a natural closeness towards him.
“Why are you letting them lock you up?” Fan Chen was slightly puzzled by Mi Wan. Judging by Mi Wan’s cultivation level, if she wanted to leave, no one could stop her.
“Long story.” Once she became chatty, Mi Wan felt an urge to nibble on something. She casually tore open the aforementioned bag of snacks (that was supposedly limited in stock) and helped herself.
Fan Chen glanced over without saying a word.
“Since the beginning, I had wanted to find a temporary place to settle down so I could get accustomed to this society, while quitting my addiction. So it’s fine by me if they want to lock me up. They can’t stop me from leaving even if they wanted to anyway. After that, I found out while Butler Ye may be a bit strict, he does it for my own good, so naturally, I did not mind staying back a bit. And finally…” Mi Wan pressed a hand against her chest as she uttered, “It feels like the original owner of this body also does not wish for me to leave. Every time I think about running off to a far away place after my drug rehabilitation, I feel a sense of anxiety, right over here. Tree Demon Bro, does this mean she hasn’t left her body yet?”
“No…” Fan Chen shook his head. Mi Wan’s body did not contain another soul. If there was, when Mi Wan’s soul left her body last time, the other soul would have immediately swapped back to its original place. “The issue is probably innate in your blood.”
“My blood?” Mi Wan was perplexed.
