Chapter 8 — The Male Lead Is a Bit Sick (8)
Huo Junhan frowned slightly, and in the next moment, all the live fish could no longer move.
Oh, shit…how savage and cruel.
Shen Mubai saw that he sat to the side staring at her after he finished. His ice-blue eyes were as cool as water.
Shen Mubai swallowed hard and forced herself to look away. She looked at the dead fish; she was happy to have meat, but she still needed to cook it.
“System system, can you give me a lighter?” Shen Mubai felt that she had to use her golden finger at this crucial moment.
The system said, “Touch your pocket.”
Shen Mubai touched the lighter in her pocket and picked some wood from the riverbed.
Sitting on the side, staring at her, Huo Jun narrowed his eyes slightly.
“Host, I think….” The system hesitated.
Shen Mubai: “Ah?”
System: “Maybe I’m thinking too much…”
Although there was no knife, there were sharp stones on the riverside. After simply peeling off the scales of the fish and cleaning out its innards, Shen Mubai began.
In the absence of proper materials, even if Shen Mubai had a good hand in cooking, she could not make savory food without seasoning. When the unseasoned roasted fish came fresh off the fire, Shen Mubai couldn’t help but be tearful and touched by the aroma of cooked meat.
But she did not forget about Huo Junhan, whose eyes were fixed on her. Even knowing that the other is now a zombie, Shen Mu Bai felt that she had to make every effort to get recognition from the other party.
So she lifted the grilled fish in her hands to Huo Junhan. “Uh, do you eat fish?”
Huo Junhan sat in the same place and stared at her, as if he was a statue.
Two minutes passed.
The scene was awkward and the atmosphere was awkward.
Shen Mubai was silent as she stiffly retracted her hands and began to take a bite of the fish. In her heart, she said to the system, “I think the way he looks at me is a bit penetrating.”
The system said, “He’s not eating you, what are you afraid of?”
Shen Mubai: “Oh.”
Although there is no seasoning, the meat of the fish is delicious and savory. Shen Mubai ate it in one bite and left nothing.
As the saying goes, once one is well-fed and has more than enough to eat, one will begin to feel desire. (TL: again, author, you’re so kinky, I’m blushing) After she satisfied her craving for meat, Shen Mubai began thinking about how to solve the problem of her personal hygiene. But as she thought about taking a bath, she realized she had no clothes to change into. At that thought, she dropped the idea.
After she washed her hands, Huo Junhan again took her into his arms and returned to their original dwelling with non-human speed.
After coming back, Shen Mubai thought about it and couldn’t help but open her mouth. “System, I think this zombie man is…a bit too clever.”
The system asked, “Where did you see that?”
Shen Mu Bai, “Because I am also clever.”
In the next few days, Shen Mu Bai found that Huo Junhan had changed his type of food. Instead of eating the organs of zombies, he replaced it with zombie nuclei and absorbed the energy inside.
According to the system, these colorful nuclei were dug out from level 5 zombie brains. It had been two months since the end of the world. Even the zombies had evolved. The speed of evolution had made leaders in the human base feel anxious. In the early days of the apocalypse, the ordinary zombies at level 1 were slow, and even humans without powers could kill them using weapons and their own strength. Later, there were level 2 zombies. These zombies were far more agile than the first. It can be said that a second-level zombie can be worth a hundred first-level zombies.
