“This smells so good! I haven’t eaten meat in so long!” The young couple at once raked in several pieces of meat into their own bowls. Since the apocalypse, meat has become a rarity among food.
Shao Qing did not make any movements. She picked up a mushroom with her chopsticks, then swallowed it down. When the boss asked her about it, she only politely smiled. “I’m on a diet.”
Once the host and guest stopped eating, having finished up all the dinner, the ones ought to rest went to rest. Everyone was preserving their strength to prepare to leave this ghostly area.
Shao Qing was pacing back and forth within the courtyard with the silent Yan Hanqing following behind her. There was no one in the courtyard, just a small oil lamp. It was unclear where the oil lamp was found, the light from the oil lamp shining through the opening, appearing quite sinister.
“Why aren’t you asking me why I was preventing you from eating the meat?” Shao Qing quietly asked. Yan Hanqing shook his head. “I can tell.”
“Then that’s good.” Shao Qing held on to Xiao Baozi’s hand, letting him unsteadily walk forward. Deliberately lowering her voice so one wouldn’t be able to hear if she was excited or angry, she said. “Ah Qing, I want to kill.”
Yan Hanqing was somewhat expressionless. Never has anyone ever called him Ah Qing, that was intimate. This made him unable to contain his blush, so much that he even forgot to block Shao Qing.
Shao Qing supported Xiao Baozi as he learned to walk. His steps exasperatingly slow. “I’m not a good person, but I still do have a bit of a conscience. Smell the wind. That smell is quite heavy, lingering on the tip of my nose. At all times, it reminds me of what has actually occurred here.”
Yan Hanqing’s nose wasn’t as alert as Shao Qing’s. However, the difference was that big. He became silent again, the obstructive words he was going to say wasn’t able to come out at all. After all those people were already bad to the bones. Not even mentioning just watching it happen but even personally murdering, he was capable of doing it.
“Tonight will definitely meet with mishap.” Shao Qing decisively decided this. Her sixth sense told her that. Yan Hanqing didn’t say any words and just followed behind Shao Qing.
There weren’t a lot of vacant rooms, therefore when it was time to sleep at night, Shao Qing and Gu Panpan were sleeping together in one room. If it weren’t for the fact that during the daytime they were so busy, thus causing Gu Panpan to immediately fall asleep, Shao Qing reckoned she would have been listening to gossip for the entire night.
Gu Panpan was deep asleep, whereas Shao Qing didn’t sleep at all. Drawing Xiao Baozi close, she quietly curled up on the bed. By the time when it was midnight, a sudden blood-curdling shriek filled the air. It came from the room next door.
Shao Qing’s expression immediately changed. She quickly crawled out of bed. Carrying Xiao Baozi and not caring about the hazy Gu Panpan who just awoke, she headed towards the outside. Not for the other’s sake but to find out who let the scream, she discovered it was the man from the young couple who let out that scream.
Originally Shao Qing had a premonition that something was going to happen tonight. However, she did not think that it would have occurred within their group.
Probably not sleeping for the same reason, Shao Qing arrived early but arriving just as early was the Yan Hanqing who was warned ahead of time by her and Gu Chuan.
The boss bringing over some people arrived a bit late. When they did arrive, it was just when Gu Chuan was about to kick open the door. Once the door was open, everyone was shocked.
The man from the young couple, at this moment had his lower body on the bed and his upper body drooped down onto the ground. His round eyes were opened wide and his face had a few deep bloody scars. His throat had already been torn apart, it was evident that he was not among the living anymore.
The woman was leaning over his body, emitting a weird chewing sound. Hearing the door being opened, the woman turned around. Her face, especially her mouth was covered with blood, pale complexion, her skin already appeared to be rotting like a corpse.
“Move!” Gu Chuan’s expression changed. With a point of his hand, his ice elemental superhuman abilities was immediately launched. In mere seconds, the woman’s feet quickly hardened to ice, gluing the sole of her feet onto the ground.
The woman had roughly just turned into a zombie, thus her reaction was relatively slow. Blanking for a moment, she suddenly became angered. Lifting her leg, the ice underneath and her leg broke apart into pieces. Shao Qing did not saying anything further, but her vines had already binded the woman’s feet. Yet, with a big vigorous struggle, it too was broken apart.
Yan Hanqing was already clenching his dagger and had arrived in front of the woman. With his knife he stabbed it into the woman’s upper abdomen. However realizing that she has already changed into a zombie and that stabbing her at the upper abdomen wouldn’t be effective at all, he quickly drew out the dagger. But, the woman’s fingernails glittering like frost and snow came down quick and slapped him away.
Yan Hanqing was only able to cross both his hands across his chest when he was knocked flying.
For some unknown reason, the woman’s strength was way stronger than the average zombie. Effortlessly she lifted up her leg, breaking apart the ice and vines, then she walked over toward Gu Chuan and Shao Qing’s direction.
The boss couldn’t harbour away his powers anymore. Pointing his finger, a ball of fire came flying out. Yet when the fire arrived and hit the woman’s body, before it could catch on fire, the fire was already extinguished.
Conveniently drawing out a knife from a person from the surrounding, she lifted it up and jumped up suddenly stabbing the knife towards the woman’s neck area.
The woman shifted her body slightly. Following, the knife chopped down to her collar bone. Still clutching the knife, Shao Qing had no choice but to relax her grip. She faced the woman’s claw, meeting force with force.
Having ate so many crystals, her strength was naturally stronger than the woman’s by a lot. Just seeing the woman retreat a step and indignantly howl, there was no second howl. Shao Qing had already grasped her by the arm and given her a shoulder throw, causing the woman to land heavily on the ground, rotting flesh flying everywhere.
Not waiting for her to crawl back up, Shao Qing already punched the back of the woman’s head, directly concaving the back of her head. After that punch, the woman’s entire body embedded into the ground a few inches.
Gu Panpan who arrived late, swallowed her saliva. In reality Shao Qing is a strength based superhuman, right?
