Chapter 11 — The Male Lead Is a Bit Sick (11)
One day, when Shen Mubai was eating a sweet potato, she was suddenly reminded of a certain something and asked the system, “System, how did I die?”
The system said, “At least say it as if you’re sad.”
Shen Mubai heard this and felt a huge shock. Her brain concocted a hundred different kinds of indecent death scenarios, and, with difficulty, she asked, “Was it in the news?”
The system said, “It was in the headlines.”
Shen Mubai felt dread in her heart, “….How did I die?”
There was pity in the system’s voice. “You were stabbed to death by a wife who mistook you for a mistress.”
Shen Mubai: “…”
Ten minutes later, Shen Mubai finally calmed down. “Why don’t I remember it?”
The system replied, “Alas, you hit your head when you fell down, and the concussion caused temporary amnesia.”
Shen Mubai: “…..Are you fucking with me?”
The system didn’t say anything.
Shen Mubai was so angry that steam came out of her ears. “If you have the ability to make that up, then you have the ability to tell the truth!”
The system was also angry, “Believe it or not, honey!”
And so a cold war began, and neither side spoke until Huo Junhan came back.
When he came back, Shen Mubai was still depressed. However, when he grabbed her collar once again, she looked up and faced those familiar ice blue eyes.
Cold sweat snaked down her back.
Shen Mubai caved and looked away first, while the other side stared a little longer before eventually shifting away his gaze as well. In the next second, however, he threw her over his shoulder before swiftly leaving.
It felt like she was on a roller coaster; Huo Junhan would not slow down and kept going faster and faster.
Her face was as white as paper when she was finally released. The world started to spin.
“System, I don’t feel so good.” Shen Mubai spit out. (TL: MR. STARK I DON’T FEEL SO GOOD.)
The system’s voice was a bit cold. “Drink some water then.”
It seemed that they were still in a cold war. Shen Mubai huffily retorted, “Let’s not talk.”
System: “….” This motherfucker.
It seemed like they had changed their “home”.
To be more specific, Huo Junhan had brought her from City C to City D.
Shen Mubai had been slung over Huo Junhan’s shoulder the whole day. And now, whenever Huo Junhan was not dealing with the more evolved zombies, he would bring her along with him.
When Huo Junhan went to chase a level four zombie, the relaxed Shen Mubai said to the system, “I think this man is not that bad.”
The system said: “Oh, is that so?”
Shen Mubai nodded. “Yeah, following him means I can eat well and drink well, and I don’t have to worry about being bitten by zombies.”
Shen Mubai thought about it and added, “His hygiene is pretty impressive too.” And even when Huo Junhan was not around, his scent made the lower grade zombies unwilling to approach.
The system agreed with her words, “There isn’t anything wrong with it.”
The two ignored the question of why Huo Junhan chose to stay with Shen Mubai.
“Boss, it seems clear, we can rest for awhile.” A voice came from nearby, clearly male.
When she heard it, Shen Mubai was startled and quickly hid behind the door. She hissed to the system, “Why didn’t you warn me?”
“I thought they were just passing by,” the system said.
Shen Mubai thought, you will get it sooner or later, System.
VIS: Hm~ System are you lying or not~
