Evil, Vicious, and Merciless
This was an abandoned area compared to the bustling and prosperous city.
The narrow alleyway was covered in dirt and littered with trash all over the floor. It stank all year round. Except for mosquitoes, the occasional stray cats and dogs, only a few people would come thru here now and then.
The night sky was dark and dense when out of nowhere, a small arm slowly reached out from the trash can. Followed by a childs short pair of legs and torso could be seen, as the child tried to crawl out from the trash can. Because the childs hands werent holding the rim of the trash can steadily, the child fell straight to the ground.
The white hospital gown that she wore had already been stained and wrinkled. The gown stuck to her skin like an old worn-out rag. The little dumpling was barefooted. Only a pair of bright, intelligent eyes stood out from her dusty dirt-stained face.
Yeya was dazed and confused as she rubbed her eyes. Her eyes widened when she realised that she had a human body. She wiggled her toes and pinched her cheeks, acting as if she had just discovered a new continent. As she tilted her head, she saw that there was a bunch of weeds growing in the corner of the wall.
Yeyas eyes lit up as she crawled towards the weeds on her limbs. She lowered her head and asked politely, “Hello, may I ask if you know where this place is?”
The weeds swayed in the direction of the wind and rumbled.
“…I dont understand what youre saying.” Yeya pursed her lips and asked, “Do you know the universal language for demons?”
The weeds rumbled for a while. Theyre rumbling translated to: Little demon, get lost! Dont bother me.
——Due to the desolate and cold environment, even the wildflowers and weeds that grew there were unfriendly.
No one bothered to spare a glance at her as the day progressed. Yeya wrapped her arms around her knees and shrank towards the corner shivering.
It was very dark; the moon and stars couldnt be seen. It seemed as if a dark cloth was covering the sky. She couldnt feel any familiar spiritual energy around and even the grass that grew here spoke in unfamiliar dialects. It was strange and scary.
Yeya pursed her lips.
She just turned 100 years old this year. But she was still a little demon of the Plants Clan. Since she didnt have a physical body, she had to be accompanied and cared for by her parents every day as she absorbed sunlight.
She didnt know what exactly happened, but she remembered that when she woke up today, bright rays of red light filled the sky. The divine fire wreck havoc through the land, transforming the once beautiful spirit land into hell. Her father tried to protect them but was swallowed up by the fire.
Her mother hugged her and her last words to her were, “Yeya, you have to live on…”
“Mommy…” Yeya was so sad that she couldnt control her tears from overflowing. Droplets of tears continuously fell from the corner of her eyes. When a drop of her tears hit the ground, a delicate four-leaf clover slowly grew from one of the cracks. The green four-leaf clover was the only vibrant colour in this dull and dilapidated environment.
[Host Yeya has activated the system. System 01 is at your service.]
The sudden icy voice caused Yeya to stop crying immediately. Her eyes widened in surprise as she scanned her surrounding for the source.
[Host, please familiarize yourself with the plot and complete the given tasks. Current mission progress: 0%]
The mechanical voice sounded emotionless.
The moment the system finished speaking, a transparent panel appeared in front of her eyes. The panel was filled with small and unfamiliar characters. Yeya couldnt read or understand anything because she was a little monster that havent even reached the age to attend preschool yet.
It was chilly at night and the cold breeze made the wounds on her body sting painfully.
Yeya was teary-eyed and her voice trembled as she asked, “Uncle, do you… do you know where my parents are? Can you send me back to the spirit land?”
Yeya held her breath as she carefully asked, “Then my parents…”
The system responded coldly: [Dead.]
Yeya burst into tears after she processed what the system had just said.
[Why are you crying? Calm down. Youre a 100-year-old adult, so act a little more mature and stop crying.]
[Why cant you act more like your mother? When I worked with your mother, she had never wailed and sobbed like this.]
[Stop crying. Youll attract the people who are coming after you if you keep crying like this.]
The systems consolation didnt work instead, it made her cry even more mournfully. She finally lost her strength after crying for a long time. Yaya leaned against the wall gently as she sobbed about wanting to find her mother and father. She looked extremely pitiful.
The system realized that his method was wrong. In the past, he had only worked with adults, so the system had never encountered an obstacle like this. This time, it was different. Although Yeya was 100 years old, she is still a young baby who needs to be taken care of by her parents in the spirit land.
Realizing this, the system immediately changed his approach. The system changed his character settings into a gentle and kind uncle character and even changed his way of speaking.
[Little one, dont cry.]
The gentle and tender voice resounded in her head. Yeyas tear-stained eyelashes trembled and she stopped crying.
[If you want to save your parents and clan members, you have to listen to me.]
Yeya carelessly wiped her tears away. She didnt fall for his words, “But mom told me that I cant talk to strangers~”
“Youre a weird uncle. I wont talk to you anymore. Ill go find my mom and dad by myself.” Yeya dusted her bottom, getting ready to stand up. She propped herself up with her hands on her wall. She looked at her small feet and gingerly took a step forward.
The system was momentarily depressed.
Thats alright, he has other character settings!
[Younger sister Yeya.] To get closer to Yeya, the system changed his setting to a child character who was about the same age as her. Even his voice became much gentler, [Listen to me. The divine fire has destroyed the boundary of time. The three spirit land located in the boundary of time have been destroyed, including your physical body.]
Yeya stopped walking.
[Your mother, as well as the three thousand members of the Plant Clan, exhausted their cultivation to save a wisp of your soul and send it into this body. As long as you follow the life path of the body youre currently possessing, you can return to your parents. I can also grant you four wishes.]
The systems voice turned serious, [You have to think
