The heroes don’t live long, but villains will remain for thousands of years.
Apparently, Windchaser classified Inuyasha as a villain because Inuyasha’s vigor was formidable. The feathered arrow almost hit his heart. To be more precise, the heart was closed to being pierced directly.
Yet, Inuyasha had sustained through it successfully, albeit leaving a severe injury. The Unripe Rice Village Witch’s spiritual power raged wildly in Inuyasha’s body, making Inuyasha weaker. Inuyasha was not even much stronger than an ordinary adult. Any samurai could slay him easily.
Therefore, the arrogant half demon beast boy had to bow his head to reality and could only hide in a nearby cave to recover his wounds. During the recovery period, the only thing that he could do was to argue with the immigrant Windchaser from time to time.
Windchaser felt that Inuyasha was somewhat unreliable. He used every excuse he could to avoid talking about the shrine’s young witch.
But Windchaser knew Inuyasha cared more about the young witch than anyone else.
What a dishonest guy, but Windchaser realized that he didn’t seem qualified to comment on Inuyasha.
Not long ago, he was in the same shoe.
“Windchaser, you remember her promise at that time. As long as I can kill a hundred greater demon beasts and find her a hundred books, she promises to help me become stronger. Is it because she sympathizes with my origin?”
In the damp cave, Inuyasha talked to himself alone-at least he appeared like talking to himself.
“Sympathize with you?” Windchaser thought for a while, thinking about Inuyasha’s life experience. The Yan Wuyue World was averted toward the half demon beast, no matter if it were demon beasts or humans.
The demon beast snatched Inuyasha’s mother and immediately abandoned her after fulfilling its pleasure. Inuyasha, born as a half demon beast, was like a freak to the demon beast. He was not recognized as a demon beast.
The mother was also used as a tool. No one cared about her after she gave birth. Speaking of it, Inuyasha’s life seemed to be quite similar to Chizuko Nagato’s.
“Why do you ask?” Windchaser also recalled when he was wandering around as an orphan; his voice seemed to be melancholy.
“Just asking.” Inuyasha shook his head and closed his eyes.
Inuyasha held the wound, attempting to suppress the raging spiritual power in his body. He was enduring intense pain all the time. This damn woman is so cruel. She is really trying to take my life.
Obviously, Inuyasha didn’t take the thing away but put it back in the end. Can’t you let me off? Inuyasha subconsciously gritted his teeth again when he thought of this.
But thinking of what the woman had experienced before, Inuyasha fell silent.
“Windchaser, are you still there?”
“Don’t bother me. I’m comprehending something to see if there is a way to resolve the current situation. Just find a place to chill on your own!”
“It’s this cave quite chilly already?”
“Fuck off! Idiot dog!”
“You stupid wolf!”
The Greedy Wolf Star inheritance contained intricate knowledge. These things were sealed in Windchaser’s consciousness. Once he opened up these inherited memories, it was like plunging into an endless ocean. He didn’t even understand what was inside!
As a demon beast, he wandered everywhere and had never received any orthodox education. Even before encountering Zixing, Windchaser condensed demon beast power and absorbed vitality instinctively.
Due to the Greedy Wolf Star knowledge being abundant, Winchaser would not digest it well. Worse still, Windchaser had to find a solution to the current problem from this knowledge in a targeted manner.
Learning in the consciousness world seemed to be a long process. Windchaser, who became more immersed in Greedy Wolf Star’s memory, would only wake up occasionally to see what Inuyasha was doing.
Once, Windchaser found that Inuyasha was not in the cave for recovery when he woke up. But when he assessed the body, he realized that Inuyasha had only recovered the ability to move.
Is this guy courting death? You’re in such a weak state. Why do you still move around? Not to mention encountering onmyoji, monk, etc., I’m afraid you’re unmatched to fight an average samurai!
Huh, what is this place?
Just when Windchaser was about to taunt Inuyasha, he realized that this guy was hiding in the branches of a big tree, and the Unripe Rice Village Shrine was in front of him.
The young witch had just picked up a wooden barrel and walked into the path to the back of the shrine.
“Actually, if you explain it, I think she will probably forgive you.” Windchaser sighed, “Why don’t you tell her that you are impatient to gain strength and even break your agreement at the expense of…”
“I have done it no matter what. There is no excuse for it.” The half demon beast boy shook his head and watched the pale figure completely disappear before jumping from the tree.
There had been more than one discussion on this topic. This was not the first time Windchaser mocked Inuyasha. But, Windchaser always thought of his former self every time.
Every day after this, Windchaser would take time to observe Inuyasha.
He found that Inuyasha was recovering slowly from his injuries, but he was diligent in visiting the Unripe Rice Villager Shrine. However, the half demon beast had always stay hidden every time, like a voyeur.
“Idiot! If you don’t say what’s in your heart, how do you know that she didn’t forgive you!?”
“Stupid wolf, I think the other person will understand just by speaking out. Don’t you think you are too arrogant?”
Many days had passed. Inuyasha’s injury was healed even without extensive care.
Windchaser became more anxious. He still couldn’t find a way to leave through the knowledge inherited through Greedy Wolf Star. He vaguely felt the existence of stars, but the stars couldn’t guide him.
Inuyasha went down the mountain and once walked through a deserted place. Windchaser was not wrong. This should be the Unripe Rice Village’s ruin. It was the village Chizuko Nagato destroyed back then.
Inuyasha had moved out of the cave. She now lived in the old house of the Nagato family. Here the walls were broken, and the room collapsed. It could hardly be considered a shelter. It was just a simple place with bricks and tiles built after a few wooden beams collapsed.
It was raining. The rain finally dripped from the cracks above the head. Under the ash-gray sky, Inuyasha curled up because of the cold.
“Stupid wolf. As long as she’s always in this place, that damn woman wouldn’t have to face that pain, right?”
There was no Miki, no Three Deities’ alliance, and no outsiders. Only Inuyasha visited the shrine and watched the young witch sweeping the fallen leaves day after day.
There was no misery. She would always stay in this place in tranquility. Inuyasha was so familiar with the character of the damn woman. She would stay like this forever. She would sweep the courtyard every day, do her homework, read books, watch the sunset on the horizon, and watch the changing of the seasons. Yet, she would not be bored.
“Perhaps.” Windchaser replied feebly.
It could be the weather, but Windchaser found himself becoming lazy.
“Are we never leaving this place?”
When has it become us? Windchaser was startled. For a long time, he did not give Inuyasha any answer. Windchaser was younger than Inuyasha. He couldn’t give Inuyasha any answers.
“I don’t know, but I don’t want to stay in this place forever,” Windchaser said what was in his mind.
“But, she’s no longer at the outside world. She has died at the hands of another her.”
This was Inuyasha’s most frail voice, which Windchaser had ever heard. It might be the sound of rain or the sound of howling wind. It muffled the sound where the half demon beast boy buried his head deep in his knees.
Inuyasha always knew that the young witch had died in Miki’s hands.
“Actually, you don’t want to leave this place?” Windchaser asked hesitantly.
This time, instead, he didn’t get Inuyasha’s reply.
It slowly started raining. The idiot dog and stupid wolf stop chatting, but the surroundings were quiet enough to make it drowsy.
