A stray cat? Suspicious

Chapter 10

It is easy to eliminate such a dangerous threat while it is still in its growing stage.

Even earlier, when he was sleeping, she had this thought to finish him once and for all, but she refrained from doing so.

She decides to take the risk; if she can nurture him properly, he might become the key to putting an end to this everlasting war between exorcists and demons forever.

Swish!

She is finally at his courtyard.

"Meow~! It's time for some babysitting!"

Unknowingly, Oliver, who thought he would just remain a side character forever and become strong silently, had attracted a notorious entity to him.

 ____________________________

Oliver, who had just returned from an exhausting day, was about to crash into his bed for some sleep when he heard his paper door being scratched from outside, which made him flinch.

He had just returned, and something was now scratching at his door. But he thought about it. His clan was guarded by exorcists 24/7, so there can't be an intruder.

So who would come at this time?

He looked towards the paper door and saw a shadow beyond.

His eyes focused, and he saw something wondrous as the shadow converged and countless black lines solidified the figure hidden behind.

And soon, a figure of a clearly-defined cat formed in front of him.

"A cat? Did it sneak in somehow? How is that possible?"

He cautiously moved towards the door and slowly opened it.

A pristine white cat was at his feet.

"Meow!" It affectionately meowed at him as it nudged against his clothes.

'Hehe, I will coax him with my cuteness.' The cat thought, as she was quite confident in her cuteness.

Unless he was an emotionless doll like his mother or sister, he would definitely take her in.

Oliver stared at the nudging cat and then moved his hand from behind his back.

BANG!

"MEOW!?"

'What the fuck!?' The cat exclaimed in shock as Oliver just tried to smash her with a broom.

"Damn cat, I don't have food. Fuck off!"

He cursed as he once again attacked the cat with his broom.

"Meow!" The clan guardian ran as Oliver followed behind with his broom.

Bang! Bang! Bang!

He intended to drive away this stray cat from his yard; he didn't like animals much since his past life.

"Meow! Meow! Meow!"

For some reason, the cat kept running away from him inside his courtyard only, not leaving.

The darkness didn't hinder him either thanks to his special eyes.

Bang! Bang! Bang!

"Get out, you little-! I don't have food for stray animals like you!"

Bang! Bang! Bang!

Oliver kept swinging the broom as he chased the cat; he made sure not to directly hit the cat; he was no animal abuser, so he just swung the broom hard on the ground near the cat to drive it away.

'What is wrong with this kid!? Is he insane!? Hitting the clan guardian with a broom!? No one has ever dared to disrespect me like that! This is animal abuse.'

The cat thought while running away; she thought Oliver would accept her, considering she was pitiful and came to him in the cold night, but it seemed that the boy had no kindness towards her.

People had begged her to grace them with her presence, offering her countless treasures in her life, but never had someone dared to so blatantly chase her away with a broom.

What was more shameful was that she was hit by the boy accidentally!?

She was forcibly suppressing her speed and strength so as not to make a mess of his yard, but this boy was not stopping at all.

She really wanted to beat some sense into this impudent brat.

"MeoW!!"

Another hit grazed through her butt as she cried out in shock.

Bam!

In her game of chase, she did not see that there was a wall in front of her and crashed into it.

'Ow! It hurts!'

Oliver, who had been following closely behind, also looked at the cat speechlessly.

Was this cat dumb? There was a huge wall in front of it, yet it still collided straight into it.

Seeing as how he had her cornered, he did not hit her anymore.

He felt that the cat was a bit pitiful, laying there pressing her forehead in pain.

'Huh? Doesn't this cat act humane like? Normally, shouldn't a cat lick their injuries so why is this dumb-looking cat pressing its head instead?'

He puzzledly looked at the cat and felt something was odd.

Stronger version of mythical eyes awakened. Check!

A huge disturbance produced in the middle of the clan! Check!

Someone sent to investigate. Check!

A weird cat came to him in the middle of the night. Check!

All of this happened just after he awakened the special eyes. Check!

The clan guardian of the Mystic Purge Clan also has the form of a cat. Check!

The clan security is extremely tight that no animal could enter. Check!

'Hmm…'

Oliver threw the broom away as he rubbed his hands.

Indeed, he understood what was happening.

Unexpectedly, he had been attacking the clan guardian with his broom.

Anyways, it was not his fault; the guardian should have assumed a proper form if it was coming to meet him.

"Hey there, cute kitten, does it hurt? I remember that I still have some leftover fish from afternoon. I will feed it to you if you are hungry."

Seeing the sudden shift in Oliver's attitude, the cat felt suspicious. For some reason, it had a bad premonition. Why was the brat who was brutally beating her suddenly changing his manners?

Did he finally feel pity for her after seeing her hit herself into the wall?

So he was human after all… and here she was about to assume him to be some vicious demon instead.

Seeing that the cat was looking at him suspiciously, he didn't know whether to laugh or cry.

He had indeed done something terrible just now; whether it was the clan guardian or not, he still hit her with a broom.

So, he went back inside and brought out some fish.

Putting the fish in front of the cat, he didn't say anything and just went back to sleep.

If the clan guardian wanted to keep an eye on him, then there was nothing much he could do with his current power.

So, it was better to cooperate with the cat and make it fat and lazy.
