Chapter 34 — This Male Lead Is a Bit Sick (34)
The team decided to leave before it got dark out.
On the road, everyone felt tense and prepared themselves for any unexpected obstacles, but there was nothing; the number of zombies had in fact significantly decreased.
As the sun was beginning to set, the team found a place to settle and began making plans on how they were going to leave D City for S City in the morning.
“Did the zombies just disappear?” An Ning said.
Li Haopeng took a sip of water and said, “I don’t know, but we shouldn’t let our guard down.” He turned to Shen Changqing. “Captain, what do you think?”
Shen Changqing’s attention had been on Huo Junhan for awhile, but he turned towards his team and said, “I think what happened at the supermarket might be happening again now.” He paused and continued, “But don’t think about it too much. Our goal is S City. It would be better if we don’t encounter many zombies.”
The team understood his words and left the topic alone, instead turning back to recharging themselves from the gruesome battle.
Everyone was resting by themselves, but off to the side Qin Yifeng was eyeing Huo Junhan while quietly approaching Shen Mubai.
She was not yet asleep, just amiably talking to the system, so when she heard the approaching footsteps her eyes immediately opened.
Qin Yifeng leaned down and whispered, “Come with me for a second.”
Shen Mubai did not want to, but when she thought of the jade hanging around his neck, she complied.
The two were sitting in a corner.
Qin Yifeng unlooped the energy stone from his neck and said to Shen Mubai, “This is for you.”
Shen Mubai’s brain had temporarily stopped working, and her first reaction was to ask the system, “System, what does he mean?”
System: “Just take it quickly.”
Shen Mubai ignored the system’s tone and looked at Qin Yifeng. “Can I take the jade without becoming your wife?”
Qin Yifeng froze for a second before he burst out in laughter. Wiping a tear from his eye he said, “Actually, I said that to deceive you. I lied, this jade was just randomly picked up.”
Shen Mubai went silent for a moment before saying to the system, “System, is this a lie?”
System: “No. You’re really smart you know?”
Shen Mubai: “…” Fuck this system.
Qin Yifeng saw that she wasn’t responding, and a faint blush appeared on his cheeks. He turned his head to the side and whispered, “Actually, I like you a lot.”
Shen Mubai tuned back in and said, “Sorry, I didn’t hear—what did you say?”
Qin Yifeng was going to repeat himself when he froze. He felt a cold and unbearable chill coming from behind. He subconsciously chose to protect himself and said, “No, it was nothing.”
Taking the energy stone in his hand, Shen Mubai said, “I’ll give you something too.”
Qin Yifeng had given the jade because she had been his savior. His first reaction was to naturally refuse. But, he quickly choked on his words after he saw what Shen Mubai had taken out.
It was a beautiful, dark blue crystal, resembling a large diamond. Qin Yifeng knew that a blue crystal came from a level-four zombie.
Previously, when the male lead had torn a zombie apart, a crystal had fallen and rolled over to Shen Mubai’s side. She had picked it up to hand it to the man, but he hadn’t taken it.
Shen Mubai did not really have any use for it. In her opinion, the energy stones were meant for the male lead, so these tiny crystals were of no use to him.
VIS: Lol, “sorry I didn’t hear” ~ Qin Yifeng, I’ll take you in~~
