Chapter 7 – Goodbye Owner
Why do you hit me?
In the middle of playing, a hook suddenly flies in front of me, I quickly dodge to the side, narrowly avoiding a strike towards my belly.
The giant bird devil did not stop just because I dodged his attack, instead he aimed his iron hook upwards and hit my head. Seems like he won’t stop relentlessly attacking until I’m dead.
I was very angry, my tail perked up, and I maliciously stare at the giant bird devil as I issued a battle cry. My memory stirs about in my brain, and a sudden idea causes a set of steel armor and long claws as sharp as knives to form.
“Miao Miao…..” Whined the giant elephant devil, “Do you really hate me that much?”
I have not yet answered, and the giant bird devil scolds, “You fool! Wake up! This woman was playing around with you, all these years, you do not know how many devils and monsters have been tricked by her, when has she ever kept a promise? You fool!”
The voices fell, he took his hook and attacked me, I will no longer be nice and I take my claw out to parry his attack. My other claw aims for his heart, rhino devil seeing this, hastily rushed forward and blocked using his fist, “You hurt my brother!”
I took the offensive and grabbed his fist, slashing upwards, I cut through bones and tendons, with blood dripping profusely, causing immense pain and screaming.
“Third brother!” Exclaimed the giant elephant devil as he observed the injury on rhino devil, and then looking at with his bloodshot eyes, not wanting to believe what had happened, “How can you be so cruel?!!”
Licking the blood on the steel claws on my hands, I taste the flavor of my own blood, I displeasingly said, “He dared hit me…..”
“Kill her first, then talk! We need to avenge third brother!” The giant bird devil maliciously attacked me, and then bull devil rushed over to help me block his hooks with the iron bar.
Luo Sha and Yin Zi with sword in hand, went to attack the lone rhino.
The giant elephant devil hesitated, but eventually stomped into the earth, it shook violently and quickly around him. He pulled out his golden hammer from his waist and viciously hit me, I hurriedly evaded, and I make an attempt to use my claws while airborne. I sent out four blade-like air streams.
The air streams were all over the place, over a hundred neatly placed trees were toppled over, and boulders were cleanly split in two, as well as a whole section of the mountain was slashed away.
“What a heaven shattering claw!” The giant elephant barely evaded, the two feathers on his head cut off, he angrily lifts his golden hammer and repeatedly strikes at the ground.
The earth trembled and shook, at the base of the mountain, a crack in the earth appeared, and it slowly expanded with each tremor and shake. Everybody’s steps were unsteady, and our agility was severely affected.
Rhino devil seeing this opportunity, steps back to avoid the offensive, while the giant bird devil took to the skies, unaffected by the earthquake.
I nimbly tread on the falling rocks, jumping higher and higher, reaching the bird devil, I jumped onto his back and viciously took a bite into his wings.
The giant bird devil feels the pain and loudly screams, “You, get the hell off of me!”
“Meow woo~ Meow woo~ You dare hit me you stinky bird~” I cried, refusing to let go, but, the more I bite the more tightly I clamp down, and eventually my mouth is full of blood.
“I’ll die with you!” The giant bird devil furiously hits himself in the back with his hook, the strength of seemingly penetrates through.
“Second brother!! Don’t!!” The giant elephant devil and the rhino devil shouted in unison.
“Righteous Sister (Boss)!! Be careful!!” Bull devil and Yin Zi simultaneously shouted.
During the most critical moment, my body flashed a light, and I quickly thought of methods that would bring me back to the body of a cat, my petite body to avoid death.
Fortunately, I went back to being a cat, however, the giant bird devil still has not fallen. A sudden strong gust of wind kept us in the air, along with the suspended trees, dust and rocks, and then with a squall, me and the giant bird devil were blown into the distance.
“Meow woo~” I cried as I was blown away from the giant bird devil, I looked down and saw Luo Sha with a big fan explaining to the pitiful Bull Devil, “I thought she was going to die…..Sorry…..”
The wind was nauseating causing my eyes to slowly dim, and suddenly fainting.
When I woke, it was dusk. I surrounded by wilderness, all the bones in my body ached, even walking seemed to be a pain.
I struggled to walk around aimlessly, took a break, and then continued to walk a few steps, stopping again…..
I don’t know where I was going…..but I know I want to go home…..
In the past, I did not come home after playing outside at night, owner would be very anxious and look for me with flashlights. No matter where I was hiding, pipes, bushes, trees, or staircases, owner would be able to find me. He would then gently hold me back home and open a delicious can of food.
But…..this time, owner did not find me.
Does owner not want Hua Miao Miao anymore? Like Mimi’s owner that has let her become a stray cat, and let others bully her, will I be discarded?
I do not want to think about it anymore, and I didn’t think about it anymore, just looking at the distant sunset, red, like a very very big egg yolk, emitting a seductive charm, causing my stomach to make a growling sound.
Lying on the ground, I look at the ants moving food, I feel dizzy from hunger, without anymore strength, I just want to sleep, and forget about the pain and sadness.
Suddenly, my ears pick the slight sound of footsteps, I am familiar with this sound and rhythm, coming from the west, about 20 miles away.
I quickly raise my head and pull out my claws to make a dash, when I stopped, a shadow of a person was in my view……
I do not know how to describe his appearance, because there are no words I can use, but out of millions of individuals, I will always be able to find him out of all those people, as if the others did not exist.
In my entire life, I’ve not seen a single person better looking than him, or anybody more attractive than him, not in the past, not now, not ever.
Because he is my owner……
I quickly rushed over, in two three steps I jumped into his arms, I rubbed my head to owner’s chest, crying “meow, meow” non stop, never wanting to separate with him again.
However…..owner brutally grabbed the fur on my neck and pulled me away from him, hanging me in mid-air.
“Meow woo?” I asked, confused, but I dare not speak, afraid that owner might not want me anymore.
Owner stared at me, opening his mouth slowly, “Where did this cat demon come from?”
I didn’t pay any attention to his question, only looking at his eyes in a daze. In the past, the me that could not distinguish colours would never imagine that owner’s eyes would be so beautiful, green like the grass on the ground, so dazzling, so attractive, even more than the Yin Zi’s emerald waist band, let me indulge till the end.
“Tell me!” Owner asked again.
I stared at him blankly, surprised to find his shiny black jewel-like hair grew longer, simply and casually tied at the back, and his white wool cape waving in the wind. Flashing silver chain mail wrapped around a slender figure, and waist girded with sword exuding a bloody scent and a murderous aura.
But no matter what, he is still my most favorite owner.
“Fine, since you are just a little demon, today I will forgive you.”
I do not know why, but today, owner seems very ferocious and distant……he actually grabbed me and shook me, like he wants to throw me out, so I firmly bite down on his hands, my fangs piercing his skin and drawing a little blood.
His blood was cold, a bone piercing cold and iciness, then I began choking from the burning hot sensation. My internal organs start to ache, and I lied down on the ground and curled up from the pain. But still, I refused to leave owner’s line of sight.
“Stupid cat, who doesn’t know that the blood of the Bi Qingshen Jun is poisonous.” Owner dropped me, his tone indifferent, and troubled eyes flashed, seemed to be thinking of something.
Cats have naturally high levels of tolerance, but this time, I really can’t stand the pain any longer. Owner turned, wanting to leave.
He wants to leave me behind…..
Trying hard to stand up, my limbs trembled, I slowly crawled towards his feet, I desperately cried, and desperately rubbed his feet, as well as rolling and acting cute, I just wanted him to stay and take me home.
He looked at me unmoved.
My eyes begin to go black, I spit blood from my throat, a mouthful of rancid taste, and everything in the world becoming a ghost. I see three of owner’s face, and I whined, unwilling to fall.
Prior to losing consciousness, I heard owner give out a long sigh, “…….”
I think he is probably going to bring me back home…..
But when I woke up, the sky was half dark, my stomach doesn’t hurt anymore, but in front of me, the only thing missing was the presence of owner.
Maybe he left to do something, I think optimistically, sitting there obediently waiting for him to come back.
But I waited from the early morning dew till the shining stars at night, and from night until dawn, and from dawn until nightfall……
I waited for three full cycles, until Yin Zi and bull devil finally found me, but owner still has not come back.
I finally understand that I have been abandoned…..
Owner does not want me anymore…..
Owner does not want Hua Miao Miao…..
Yin Zi drags me and says to go home, but I stood there for a long time refusing to leave.
My heart hurts, it really hurts, it hurts even more than my stomach before……
I want to cry, but I did not.
Because cats are born without tears…..
