Chapter 36 Full moon?
“Hey, what do you think you’re doing? I saw her first!” The Mediterranean man took a step forward but when he saw that behind Shao Qing were several people he became slightly terrified. Merely his pervertedness had pushed aside everything else, straining his neck he yelled. “What are you doing, aren’t you planning to talk reasonably?”
Shao Qing didn’t even look at him. She only turned her glance towards the stall owner. “Thirty Jins, the girl belongs to me.”
The stall owner giggled happily. “What’s the point of a girl buying another girl back? What’s the point?”
Shao Qing’s eyes were extremely cold. “Do you need me to repeat twice?”
The stall owner swallowed down his saliva. He had also seen a lot of strong superhumans and had also seen the higher class superiors of the base. But, he had never seen someone like Shao Qing. With just one glance, she was able to cause the cracks within his bones to feel so cold.
The stall owner had a premonition that if he dared to say anymore nonsense, the ice like woman would really dare kill him.
“No…. no need, thirty jin it is!”
“Wait, I was negotiating the price with you first!” The Mediterranean man anxiously spoke. He was fond of little girls, the younger and more tender they were, the more excited he became. Before the apocalypse, although he enjoyed that type, he was hindered by the laws of the country so he could only secretly immerse himself in his fantasies, not daring to do anything. At max, when he would hire a prostitute he would choose ones that haven’t fully grown into adulthood.
Since the apocalypse, law has become a pile of rubbish. Especially now that he had become a superhuman, the things that he was afraid of doing before, he was now capable of doing it until he was fully satisfied. This simply made his body to be brimming with excitement.
His favourite thing was to buy or force little girls that met his standards to satisfy his secret cravings.
This girl was an absolute delicacy. She completely met his standards. Telling him to give up on her was basically like telling him to cut off a part of his flesh.
Since they had come out for the purpose of exchanging material, they had brought quite a bit of things including provisions. Taking out some provisions, Shao Qing handed it over to the stall owner and pulled on the girls hand. “Business settled.”
“You stand right there! I took a fancy to her first!” The Mediterranean man was urgent and angry; urgent to interfere with Shao Qing taking the girl away and mad because Shao Qing had ignored him the entire time.
Shao Qing didn’t say a word, the one who made a move was Gu Panpan. In a split second, she utilized her power converting herself into a golden barbie. Shao Qing could clearly see that Gu Panpan’s clothes were about to burst open through the sudden swelling.
The outline of her muscles taut underneath her clothes could be clearly seen. This was simply… too monstrous causing others to be speechless.
With a single clenched fist, Gu Panpan smashed towards the completely unprotected Mediterranean man’s head directly causing him to fall backwards. Blood was rushing down from his nose, afterwards Gu Panpan grabbed him by his leg and threw him.
Just when the Mediterranean man was about to faint, Gu Panpan stretched out her neck and reverted back to her original form. “NND, earlier I had already wanted to make a move. Don’t play around!”
[NND = cursing similar to yelling out ‘your grandmother’, etc.]
“Let’s go.” Shao Qing pulled the little girl along. With her pinky finger unseen, she shot out a tiny bullet like seed into the Mediterranean man’s body. Gu Chuan who was also about to make a move,relaxed and retracted his hand after seeing Shao Qing’s movements.
This time’s feud had ended, but there is a phrase that is super fitting. If you rid the grass but not the roots, once the spring wind blows it will grow again. How could Shao Qing possibly leave an opportunity for him to endanger them?
Owing to the fact that they had bought the little girl, they didn’t buy anything and instead returned to their temporary residence. Once they returned, Gu Panpan couldn’t hold back asking: “Although I also sympathize with her, Qing Jiejie, are we really going to bring her along? Our journey is going to be extremely dangerous, we can’t even guarantee our survival….”
Shao Qing allowed the timid little girl to sit beside her, then spoke in an indifferent manner. “I would rather she die at the hands of zombies than let her die under a wretched man.”
Shao Qing touched the little girls head, her gaze containing a bit of softness underneath the frozen layer of ice. “No matter how you die, at least you will have a little bit of dignity. This is the only thing I am capable of helping her with. If we are able to safely return back to the base, then we’ll find her a place to stay there. A little girl who hasn’t grown into adulthood yet is still something that I can afford to raise.”
Gu Panpan pursed her lips. Within her eyes, it was unclear whether she was grieving or that she felt sad. What Shao Qing said was correct. With the apocalypse, they could barely protect themselves, how could they really help her?
However, while they are still alive they should struggle to survive and when they die they should die with dignity, just that and nothing more.
The little girl had some sort of IQ problem, but she still depended on Shao Qing. It seemed as if she knew that although Shao Qing appeared rather cold, she was actually a person who would treat her well.
“What’s your name?” Shao Qing touched the girls head and softly asked her.
The girl with a somewhat blank expression blinked a few times. Finally using a feeble sound like the twittering of birds she replied. “Compensate…. Compensation goods….”
Shao Qing’s gaze became icier. Looking at the girls big lifeless eyes, she spoke. “Let’s call you Shao Tong, using my surname.”
The girl, Oh no, we should call her Shao Tong now, nodded her head. Nervously grabbing onto the corner of Shao Qing’s clothes, Shao Qing could tell that compared to the average person her reaction was a bit slower. But, it wasn’t because she was mentally challenged; instead, it was probably due to a trauma from her head that caused one of her nerves to receive injuries thus leading to her slow reaction.
She fiddled with a bit of Shao Tong’s hair. As expected, she did find a spot with sparse hair concealing an ugly scar. Looking at the shape of the wound, it seemed like it was from knocking into the corner of a table or something along those lines.
How did that wound came about? It was quite self-evident how it did.
Actually choosing to bring Shao Tong along was an unwise decision. This was because of Shao Qing’s mercy. She would always consider herself to be a merciless person, however her blood was still scalding hot.
“In a while, let’s stroll around again. Afterwards, lets leave this place a bit earlier.” Shao Qing really hated this base. This hatred came from the bottom of her heart.
“We can’t Qing Jiejie.” Gu Panpan’s face became unsightly. “It’s almost the full moon, we can’t stay somewhere outside.”
“Full moon?” Shao Qing stared blankly. What was so special about the full moon?
“Every full moon, all the zombies would become fanatical. Whether it was their aggressive nature, or their five senses, they would all be raised. So much that it was possible for the zombies to form tides and besiege the base. Moreover, during the full moon, it is the peak period for zombies to evolve. The appearance of variation zombies would be a lot more likely.” Gu Panpan quickly explained. “Therefore no matter what the circumstances are, we have to stay at the base.”
“So it’s like that….” Shao Qing still hadn’t come across a full moon yet. This will be her first time encountering a full moon since she crawled out of the hospital freezer.
Shao Qing couldn’t help but think, if during the full moon zombies would tend to evolve, then what about Er Dai? Would something peculiar happen to Er Dai?
What about Xiao Baozi and her? Would something occur as well?
No matter what happens at that time, it was better for her to prepare in advance. Otherwise her, Xiao Baozi, and Er Dai’s identity might be accidentally revealed.
Gu Panpan would feel at ease with a superhuman group, but they definitely wouldn’t be at ease with a zombie squad, no matter what they’ve already experienced against zombies together.
Shao Qing narrowed her eyes. She hoped that when it came time for the full moon to happen that nothing strange would occur…
