She's a Legendary Demon Hunter [Rebirth] - Chapter 33
The large dog’s demonic source was 70% tainted with demonic poison. The most efficient method would be to cleanse the poison from the dog’s demonic source and then allow the body to slowly purge the remaining poison. After that, the demon would be able to complete its transformation.
However, considering that the large dog wanted to care for the old man at the hospital, and also had to make money to repay her, Mi Wan made an exception and decided to help completely cleanse out all the demonic poison within its body. Fortunately, Mi Wan had completed her first stage in her rehabilitation program and had not exhausted her spiritual energy recently, which allowed her to accomplish this feat. But by the end of the treatment, it was already dawn.
“Thank you, I will definitely repay you.” After the treatment, the large dog was finally able to speak human. Bending its front knee, it thanked Mi Wan. Then, it ran out of the room without looking back. After a while, Mi Wan could no longer sense its demonic aura.
“I’m exhausted.” Mi Wan slumped haggardly into her bed, instantly falling asleep after wrapping herself with a quilt.
Separated by a wall next door, Fan Chen stood under the dewy twilight, watching the large dog’s healthy physique and its smooth flow of unhindered demonic energy, and thoughtfully turned towards his neighbor. His fingers inadvertently brushed against a vine on the balcony. The tender green vine began sprouting tiny flower buds. The vines stretched along the courtyard wall and made its way next door, covering the entire windowsill.
Since the IOU was established, Mi Wan knew that the large dog would not dare skip out on his debt, but she never expected him to pay the money back so quickly.
A week later, a teenager with the same aura as the large dog found Mi Wan eating barbecue kebabs in an alley.
“Here.” The dog demon’s voice held a clarity that was unique to a young person. Wearing a cheap white t-shirt, he had a tall and slender figure, with a slightly dark skin complexion.
While Mi Wan could not judge the appearance of animals, based on her perspective of his humanoid figure, that dog demon could very well be a handsome stud amongst dogs.
“What’s this?” Mi Wan accepted the paper from the other party. Looking over it carefully, she realized that it was a wanted poster, “Murderer on the loose, reward set at 500,000 yuan?” There was a handwritten address on the bottom of the wanted poster.
“The address is written on it. Take it to the police station and claim the bounty.” Said the teen.
“Why didn’t you claim it and then transfer the money directly to me?” Mi Wan asked.
“I don’t have a bank account.” The teenager looked a little embarrassed. When he was born, he did officially file with the Demon Hunter Association, and he naturally possessed an account, but five years ago, when he suddenly degenerated into an ordinary dog that could not shapeshift, his account was cancelled by his family, So today, he was blacklisted without a formal household registration.
Mi Wan understood and kept the wanted poster. She’ll just pretend that the dog demon had given her “collateral,” where she would have to make a roundabout trip to the bank to get it cashed out.
“Also…” The teenager hesitated and said, “Can you give me 100,000 yuan if you get the reward money? The old man’s hospitalization fee is not settled yet. I will give you the remaining 600,000 yuan next time.”
Knowing that the couple next door had set their sights on the old man’s house, the teenager naturally wanted to prevent the other party from using those medical expenses as an excuse, so he must pay them back as quickly as possible.
“You told him your real identity?” Mi Wan asked.
“Mmmhmm.” Truthfully, he didn’t admit it voluntarily. He just appeared in the old man’s ward, and after observing him for a while, the old man came to a realization and asked if he was Maomao. The young man had to reveal his identity. Soon after, the scheming couple next door came to curry favor again, so he threw them out on the spot.
The old man reprimanded him for that, but the teenage boy was so agitated that he told the old man about the couple’s twisted schemes.
The old man stayed silent for a while, and said, “No matter what their plan was, they saved my life.”
The young man felt that the old man was too weak and kind but he was not as angry as before. As long as he was around, he would make sure that no one would take advantage of the old man again.
“Okay, once I get the money, I’ll send it to you.” Mi Wan nodded.
The boy thanked her and left behind the old man’s address before getting up and leaving.
As soon as the teenager left, Mi Wan was left to ponder on a way to claim this bounty. Given her current situation, it would be inappropriate for her to go to the police station. After some thought, Mi Wan took out her mobile phone and dialed the sparrow spirit’s phone number.
“Little sparrow, do you want to come out and eat some kebabs?”
“…” Sparrow spirit.
