Chapter 17 — This Male Lead Is a Bit Sick (17)
After a few days, Huo Junhan, who had successfully upgraded, opened his eyes and locked his gaze on a certain someone. The person was chatting with the system while eating potato chips.
“Nourish, nourish.” After the chips were eaten, Shen Mubai gulped down a bottle of coke and hiccuped. (TL: or burped, but for the sake of aesthetics….)
System: “Huo Junhan is awake, he’s standing behind you.”
Shen Mubai went still for a few minutes before finally slowly turning around.
He was staring at her, looking deep into her eyes.
Last time he looked at her like she was meat on a cutting board, but this time the greedy zombie looked at her like she was limited edition meat. Being desired and having value before getting eaten.
Huo Junhan took action.
Shen Mubai could barely let out a sigh before he pulled her up. Involuntarily, she was bestowed an exclusive, special edition roller coaster.
When Huo Junhan stepped into the water, Shen Mubai still hadn’t recovered from the ‘ride’. Only when she saw him start to clean his body, and the new pair of clothes near her, did she snap out of it to ask the system, “What is he doing?”
The system replied, “From what I can tell, Huo Junhan is gradually turning back into a human.”
Shen Mubai was confused and asked, “Was he not a zombie?”
“Yes, he was. Zombies are becoming increasingly human, while humans are becoming more and more like zombies.” The system said.
Shen Mubai remained silent. She felt like she and the system were speaking two different languages.
If body ratios were scored out of 10, then Huo Junhan would score a 100. The blood stains and dirt were washed away by the river, revealing a slightly wheat colored skin. From Shen Mubai’s angle, she was able to see his eight pack and a well defined V-line. The muscles on his arms were wide and muscular. Basically, he was the definition of sex appeal. (TL: wow, I suddenly have the hots for a zombie….wonder how his lower half looks)
Huo Junhan stayed in the river for another half hour before he came back ashore. His muscles clenched and glistened. Because he was previously a soldier, his back was always straight when he walked, and not only did he have looks, he could even kill a large group of people who had been called “The Human Gods” in seconds.
Although he wore ordinary clothes, on him, they looked elegant and fashionable. It was mostly his handsome, expressionless face and his indifferent, ice-blue eyes that drew people in.
Only Shen Mubai knew of the terrible brutality underneath his perfect appearance.
Huo Junhan threw the extra set of clothes at Shen Mubai, and, as if he couldn’t stand the smell of her, he looked away and frowned.
Shen Mubai thought, ‘You’ve been this smelly before, and I haven’t even said anything yet… If anything, I should be the one doing that to you.’
However, she still smelled herself and recoiled.
She told the system, “System, give me soap.”
A durian-flavored soap was thrown to her.
Shen Mubai almost cried as she stared at the soap. “I hate durian.”
The system snorted and said, “I didn’t ask you to eat it.”
“Believe it or not, I will come and fight you.”
The system simply replied, “I’m so scared.”
Shen Mubai: “…..” Why was the system suddenly using such a sarcastic tone.
What Shen Mubai doesn’t know was that the system, bored day and night, would watch all the TV dramas and movies in her memory just so that it would be up to date on all the modern insults and be able to win arguments.
VIS: Is this late? It’s technically still Friday…ANYWAY enjoy!
