Chapter 29 — The Male Lead Is a Bit Sick (29)
Shen Mubai gave him a look and suddenly felt a sense of comradery; a revolutionary friendship was blooming.
Qin Yifeng looked at her with vigilance. “You can’t snitch on me.”
Shen Mubai was hurt, “How could you say that? Do you think I’m that kind of person?”
Qin Yifeng thought about it. “If you hadn’t taken my nuts, I would believe you were a good person.”
Shen Mubai: “…”
Although several months had passed since the apocalypse, power was still available in some places. Although it has been several months since the apocalypse, you could still find some supplies lying about. The gasoline tank was used up, so they desperately turned the whole place upside down. In the end, they found half a tank of abandoned gasoline.
Shen Changqing’s face broke out into a smile. Finally, they had found gasoline! Now all they needed were some clothes and food to last them until S City.
The temperature had plummeted in the past few days. Although it wasn’t noticeable during the day, at night it would be freezing. Shen Changqing and Qin Yifeng, who had fire abilities, did not have as much of a problem. But Li Haopeng, a powerless man, and An Ning, who had water abilities, didn’t fare as well.
Shen Mubai, asleep until dawn, wasn’t aware of the cold weather.
There was a medium-sized supermarket not far from the gas station.
After filling the car with gasoline, there was still one third left. Huo Junhan was still missing.
Shen Changqing began to get a little worried about their safety. Even if he did not trust the man, they still needed his strength and protection to help them.
Li Haopeng was more straightforward and directly asked Shen Mubai, “Where is Mr. Huo?”
Shen Mubai guessed that there were some high-ranking zombies nearby; otherwise, that man would not disappear without reason.
She couldn’t tell Li Haopeng the truth though, so she had to say, “He always does this, let’s go to the supermarket first.”
Qin Yifeng, standing next to her, couldn’t help but lean down and whisper to her jokingly, “It was not easy for you to live until now, huh.”
When Shen Mubai heard this, she glanced around—maybe that man was nearby, listening in.
So she righteously said, “My savior will never put me in danger.”
That’s what she said. But, in her heart, she knew he was only keeping her alive to eat her.
Qin Yifeng, “…”
Standing aside, Li Haopeng had an indescribable expression. He would never understand the way of young couples.
There were a lot of messy footprints outside the market, as well as a few zombie bodies. The people had been in a hurry to leave.
The team observed their surroundings. Shen Changqing stepped up and whispered, “There isn’t anything unusual outside, but be careful when you go in.”
Compared to larger supermarkets, this one did not have a second floor but it was impressively wide. In order to be efficient as well as more secure, they split up into groups, and everyone was equipped with appropriate defensive weapons.
Shen Mubai never learned how to use a gun, so she was handed a thick iron rod.
As the most powerful person in terms of abilities in the team, Shen Changqing went alone.
Shen Mubai was partnered with Qin Yifeng.
While carefully shielding himself and Shen Mubai, Qin Yifeng lowered his voice and said, “If you find something wrong, don’t hesitate—just go straight back.”
The D City of today was not the same as it was before. There were now many high-ranking zombies gathering here, and because of this, the team hadn’t intended to stay for a long time.
VIS: Ooo, there’s a bit of a cliffhanger next chapter, I don’t know if I should do post the stockpile this week or leave it for December, since I have finals. I’ll be stockpiling the rest of November and then when December hits, y’all might get a like a lot of extra chapters. Or you guys can take 3 chapters next Sunday and wait for a couple of weeks.
Any questions can be asked in the comment section :3
