A few days after the rain stopped, there was no clear weather. The gloomy sky looked like a silent old pavilion.
Windchaser once again awakened from the sea of knowledge inherited through Greedy Wolf Star. What surprised him was that Inuyasha did not appear in the Unripe Rice Village shrine this time and even left the Unripe Rice Village. Instead, Inuyasha came to the city.
It was a wealthy family in this city. Inuyasha was rummaging through the cabinets.
“What are you doing?” Windchaser asked curiously.
“Looking for books.” Inuyasha turned the study into a mess and had plentiful harvests in the end. He glanced around, not knowing if these books were the same. So he packed everything away indiscriminately.
Inuyasha ransacked many families in the city and even the lord’s house.
When Inuyasha left this city, he had a big bundle wrapped with cloth on his back, seemingly quite satisfied.
Windchaser didn’t ask why Inuyasha robbed so many ancient books. But, this incident immediately informed Windchaser why the samurai and monk group pursued him when he arrived at Yan Wuyue World. This guy must have robbed a lot of families beforehand. It was probably the result of public anger.
Otherwise, humans wouldn’t dare to provoke demon beasts.
When Inuyasha returned to the ruins of Nagato’s house in Unripe Rice Village, Windchaser discovered that Inuyasha had looted many places in the past few days when he was busy comprehending the heritage memory.
“There are already more than a hundred books, right?”
Between slaying a hundred demon beasts and finding a hundred books, the latter is obviously more difficult.
“En, since I have violated the agreement, I will pay back ten times the price! Let’s look for a thousand books!” The half demon beast boy suddenly made a bold statement.
Windchaser attacked maliciously, “Then, don’t you have to kill a thousand demon beasts?”
The idiot dog did not refute the stupid wolf this time. He nodded with certainty, so the stupid wolf sighed: This idiot dog is so dumb.
Since that day, Windchaser had lived a life constantly invaded with danger. Is this idiot dog really planning to kill a thousand greater demon beasts? Does he not know his limit?
If it weren’t for the sake of sharing the same body with you, I wouldn’t care about your life and death.
Star Power! Godspeed! Godspeed!
Hmph! I should use your body to cultivate the skills in Greedy Wolf inheritance. Windchaser thought this was the only way not to suffer the bitter end of the deal!
“How many have we slain?”
“Nine hundred and ninety-eight.” Inuyasha frowned and looked back. There were a lot of corpses in the camp in front of him. Among them, there was only one greater demon beast, and the rest were underlings.
How could there be so many greater demon beasts in this world? Later, Inuyasha could only have inferior demon beasts to fill the number. It was already three years later.
In other words, Windchaser had spent three years with Inuyasha in this dream.
“We’re still short of two.” Windchaser thought for a while and said, “Recently, I heard that a toad called Red Mage appears in the south. It’s quite strong. But, if we kill it, there will only be nine hundred, and ninety-nine left. So, we’re still one short. But, it will be convenient for us to return to Unripe Rice Village afterward.”
“Oh, we’re almost reaching a thousand.” The idiot dog demon beast muttered suddenly.
After three years of blood bath, the half demon beast boy still hadn’t grown much. But there was a new scar on his face. Also, he became a lot more silent.
In fact, in the second half of the journey, there had been very few arguments between the idiot dog demon beast and the stupid wolf.
“What’s the matter? Do you have other plans?”
“Let’s just settle with this.” Inuyasha shook his head and walked directly to the south.
The screams sounded. The seriously injured Red Mage fell to the ground, revealing its true form, “Ah. Why!? I could have lived forever! It’s all because of you. I can’t complete the last evolution recorded in the toad clan. I will never let you go away with this. Even if I die, I will continue to curse you.”
The iron sword in Inuyasha’s hand slashed Red Mage’s neck. The opponent was successfully beheaded.
After this, Inuyasha returned to the abandoned ruin of Unripe Rice Village. After staying quiet for a day, he dug out all the books stored here, put them on his back, and walked up the stairs to the Unripe Rice Village shrine.
“Hey, aren’t we short of one?” Windchaser looked at Inuyasha in surprise. Could it be that I have counted it wrong?
“Stupid wolf. Thank you.”
Step by step, the half demon beasts made tremendous progress on the path to the mountain top.
“Thank me for what?” This was the first time Windchaser heard appreciation from the unfranked dog demon beast. It was simply inexplicable.
“If it weren’t for you, I wouldn’t be able to deal with so many demon beasts that are stronger than me. A thousand demon beasts, let alone three years. Even if I were given thirty years, it may not be possible.”
“Hmph, it’s just because I use you as the carrier for now. If you die suddenly, I will suffer too. Otherwise, who can care about your suicidal behavior?”
“Aren’t you suicidal too?” The idiot dog demon beast smiled, “Egoist.”
It was the last step of the mountain stairs. In front of the shrine, the young witch was cleaning the courtyard. She saw the approaching Inuyasha, and she couldn’t help frowning.
“Inuyasha, you haven’t died yet.” The young witch said indifferently, “Are you still not giving up on the item enshrines?”
Inuyasha scattered many ancient books on the ground behind him, “There are a thousand books here. Check the numbers? It was me violating the original agreement of a hundred books, so I returned you ten folds of the original amount.”
“You…” The young witch opened her lips in surprise.
Inuyasha walked towards her at this time and said calmly, “In the past three years, I have killed 999 demon beasts, including the General Dog who abandoned my mother. In addition, I slew that toad. We only knew each other because of it. I didn’t expect it to be renamed Red Mage in recent years. It has become a lot stronger. But I killed it in the end. Including him, the total count is 999 demon beasts.”
“Inuyasha.” The young witch seemed to realize what the demon beast wanted to do next, and she suddenly became flustered, “What are you going to do!?”
“Please let me stay by your side and never leave you.”
Half-demon beast hugged the young witch hard, “With that, I am the thousandth one.”
At the Unripe Rice Village Shrine, a stone statue suddenly appeared. It was Inugami, a teenager who was once a semi-demon beast who guarded the shrine.
When Inuyasha slowly changed into the Inugami statue in front of the shrine under the witch’s gentle gaze, Windchaser suddenly realized: This dream doesn’t belong to Chizuko Nagato, Miki, or that witch. Instead, this is Inuyasha’s dream.
Outside the dream, the Unripe Rice Village witch no longer exists for Inuyasha.
So he would rather let himself stay in this dream forever and never wake up.
Under the cherry blossom tree, Miki slowly closed the book in her hand. Then, after all the foreign consciousness popped out, she sealed the Yan Wuyue World completely.
Then, she nestled in the healing Eric and fell asleep.
