Chapter 53 — This Male Lead is a bit Crazy (53)
He had run his hand through her hair before moving his eyes away and said in a cold voice, “Let’s go.”
Shen Mubai had touched the place where the man’s hand had been and felt that his behavior was becoming even more odd.
They had headed to the mission board after that and what greeted them was the sight of the registrar sitting in his seat yawned, seeming a bit bored.
A loud knock on his desk startled him. The registrar was a bit confused at the sudden sound, and looked up to see a long, bony hand. The stoic face in front of him was giving off an overbearing, oppressive pressure.
He raised his eyebrow slightly and glanced at the bulletin board. There was no expression on the beautiful man’s face as he said, “Third row, level A task.”
The registrar opened the book and said, “Name?”
“Huo Junhan, Song Qingqing.”
The registrar lifted his pen and was about to write down their names when he suddenly pulled back. He read the details for the assignment and his face was somewhat shocked and astonished.
He hadn’t seen anyone so anxious to die.
He looked at the girl standing besides the man. He could tell she was a bit older than she looked, but not by much. She was probably around seventeen or eighteen years old. She was very beautiful, and he couldn’t think of a reason as to why they would take this mission.
He shook his head and thought of where the mission was located. He couldn’t help but show his disapproval and say, “You might want to think this over. Once you take on this task, there’s no room for regret.”
Hearing his words, Shen Mubai was confused and asked the system, “System, did the male lead choose a problematic task?”
System: “Don’t worry.”
Just as she was about to breathe a sigh of relief, she heard the system say, “But, it is very close to where the King of Zombies is.”
She choked so hard she could barely breathe, her pale face turning crimson due to the lack of sufficient oxygen.
Huo Junhan turned towards her and leaned down slightly, raising her chin towards him. He slightly frowned and asked, “Need something?”
Even if this zombie looked like a human, his communication skills were not up to par. But Shen Mubai, who had been with him for several months, immediately understood. She raised her dampened eyes and her voice seemed a bit softer than usual. “Choked on my saliva.”
He frowned again and seemed dissatisfied with this girl’s fragile body, but when he saw her misty eyes, he felt that strange sensation again in his chest.
He released his hold on her chin and straightened. “Stupid.” 1
He went back to the registrar and said coldly, “Write it.”
The registrar’s sympathetic eyes landed on Shen Mubai as she followed the man out.
Have you ever experienced misery?
Shen Mubai couldn’t help but cry out to the system. “I’m just here to save the man, not see some zombie king!”
System: “Give me some face. Now this system knows—I’ve taken one of history’s biggest complainer as a host.”
Shen Mubai: “…”
VIS: Shen Mubai, always complaining. Tsk.
