Chapter 3: Unreasonable
Translated by Addis of Exiled Rebels Scanlations
When Wen Jin woke up for the third time, his whole body was soft, and he was weaker than the previous two times. It seemed that it was not reasonable for him to force his magical artifact open. The first time he checked his body, his demon dan had still not recovered, his body’s meridians were chaotic, and even after sleeping for so long, there was no improvement. He could not help sighing.
This was not the way to go on.
Especially for his demon dan, there were one or two high-quality panaceas in his magic artifact, but… What was this feeling that he had no strength to open it? He felt as if his belly was full of babies but couldn’t pull them out. Wen Jin felt it intensely.
But, even if he immediately took a supreme panacea, the effect could not be guaranteed. Although Wen Jin lived for a thousand years, this was the first time he heard of a demon’s dan cracking, and he was stuck in such a low leveled spiritual world… Wen Jin was afraid that everything else at this point was superficial.
Thinking of this, Wen Jin unfolded his consciousness and found that there was a fellow in the room beside him, and he was the one whom he wanted to take revenge on. Wen Jin could remember the scent of the toxins in the man’s body, but now, they had been eliminated. Wen Jin couldn’t help thinking of the contract in his body and felt very discouraged.
At the same time, a cold voice came into his ear, “You’ve woken up?”
Wen Jin was shocked by these words. At first, he could not understand what the other side had said, but he did not know whether it was the function of the contract, since he suddenly could understand the other side’s meaning. So he immediately tried to look at his face. He did not open his eyes and instead began to feel with his divine consciousness for a while. The human being in front of him was not weak, but he was not absolute either. He was not strong enough to detect his movements.
What was going on? Wen Jin thought very seriously that all of this wasn’t the ability of this human being that he didn’t know.
Dewitt’s eyes softened as he watched the little fellow’s ears shake slightly behind his head, but his eyes still refused to open. His five senses were naturally keen, and his observation of certain aspects had been carved into his bones for a long time. Although the little fox did not open his eyes, he immediately noticed that its breathing frequency had changed.
He was just trying it out. He also deliberately suppressed his voice and did not expect such a lovely response from the little fellow.
Dewitt’s five senses made him believe that he would not be weaker than him. The little fellow woke up and was smart enough to explore the surrounding environment. It may be the beast’s self-protection instinct, but in front of the man who was used to assassination plots and traps every day, he was still green.
But since the little fox refused to open his eyes and Dewitt did not want to poke him, he continued reading the document in his hands. But within five seconds, he could not help turning off the report on the terminal and sitting upright beside the bed. There was no mirror on the bed. Otherwise, Dewitt would surely be surprised to see his ragged, unkempt self. In this instant, he would have made his past self look at him with a severe frown.
“You have slept for eight hours,” Dewitt said, poking Wen Jin’s head with his finger and then reaching out to touch the soft ears behind his head.
The little fox grunted impatiently.
Dewitt continued to touch as if he hadn’t heard him. “There’s dinner out there. They’ve prepared Liberec’s specialty; the meat of a fringe beast. It’s sporadic and tastes good. Would you like to eat it?”
Dewitt could feel the fox’s long ears freeze when he said this. Before he shook with a little frequency, obviously trying to avoid him, but now he was as rigid as if he had poked a weakness of his. For a moment, Dewitt could not help the shaking of his chest.
He was snickering! How dare he snicker?! Wen Jin meditated three times in his heart that he was a reasonable demon. He was a reasonable demon. Then he opened his eyes and slapped his paw on Dewitt’s face. “Cheee!”
He had loved to eat since childhood. Although he didn’t need to eat after he opened his dan, he still couldn’t walk by when he met with delicious food. When he was very young, to eat a rare dish, Wen Jin had even exchanged the jade peel that he had with him for decades. At the end of the meal, he was satisfied with his food and foolishly wanted more. He followed the man home, ate a few more snacks, and finally was dragged back and beaten by his Master. The humiliation was so great that all the little friends on the hill next door heard his wailing voice.
From then on, Wen Jin made a painful decision to change his mind and face… Learn to avoid food and drink.
But that was all in the past. Wen Jin liked eating, but he was not meant to eat without dignity! What other strange local specialties could fool him? Especially, specialty products–. Thinking here, Wen Jin’s eyes showed a trace of hesitation.
Watching the black eyes of the little fox complete a whole set from stubbornness to firmness to hesitation and raising his eyelids to give him a tentative look, Dewitt felt as if his heart had been stabbed by something. He used to have no feeling for contract beasts. His friend had a colorful bird for more than twenty years, and he always took it with him. Dewitt would not criticize others, but he thought such a thing was superfluous to himself.
But this little fox… he had a different feeling of intimacy towards it, and he did not know whether it was the impact of the contract or not.
Wen Jin, unable to resist Dewitt’s gaze, approached and pushed the man’s bearded chin with his paws. Then he smacked against Dewitt’s teeth and pressed his paws down harder. “Cheee!”
I won’t give in to you! I can take myself!
“Want to eat?” Dewitt misunderstood Wen Jin’s meaning. He took the paw off his face and held it in the palm of his hand, but the other party immediately pulled it away. He was not upset and rubbed Wen Jin’s head. “Are you afraid I’ll sell you?”
I’ve been sleeping for eight hours. You haven’t sold me yet. Were you waiting for me to wake up and sell me then? Wen Jin, the ancient demon, was on the bed, pushing away Dewitt’s hand with his paw, then licked the white hair on his paw. He thought, again, this guy looked big and tall, but no one knows more about what’s going on in his body than Wen Jin and the angry fox’s contract… Although Wen Jin did not want to think about it, he still understood that as long as the contract was in place, the man would not dare to move against him in the short term, at least until he was in good health.
He also had to stay here for a while. Wen Jin thought about it and squinted his fox eyes. He was right about it. This man was quite extraordinary; the room was full of reiki, which was stronger than in the outside world. The reason was unknown, but he would figure it out.
Dewitt, at the other end, was not connected to Wen Jin’s brain circuitry and said a word of his own, with a very low voice, “Low vigilance.”
However, Wen Jin immediately stared at him and reached out to pat the man’s face with his paws. He thought he was too unreasonable. How could he frame a fox without evidence?
This time, the party was prepared, Wen Jin’s claws hit the bed gently.
But he was still not convinced!
“Cheeee! Cheee!” Outside the door stood two guards. In the hall, there were eighteen guards divided into three patrols. Outside the building, there were about one hundred guards in front and behind. I know exactly what’s going on! How dare you say I am not vigilant?!
The author has something to say:
Wen Jin: Let me tell you how alert I am!
Wen Jin (looking up proudly): Really!
Dewitt: Touch me. Well, it’s quite far away for you.
Wen Jin: !!
