Chapter 21 (2/2)
It is especially easy to step on something disgusting because many foods are rotten, and if you are unlucky, touching a maggot in your hand can make you sick enough to not want to eat for three days.
Some foods are free of worms, but they are also expired and smelly. They are inedible and need to be carefully identified.
Jiang Miaomiao summed up a set of methods.
Listen and hear if there is any sound of bugs crawling.
Second, smell it to see if there is any rotten smell.
Three touches, touch if there is any swelling.
After these three procedures, the selected ones are edible, and she has tried them many times.
The two quickly filled the cart and prepared to leave the supermarket.
Jiang Miaomiao accidentally bumped into something and touched it, surprised.
“It’s a washing machine.”
They have electricity now. Wouldn’t it be better if they got a washing machine and returned it?
Lu Qiming glanced twice but did not speak.
She asked diligently, “Can we get one to go home?”
“How to do it?”
“You have a lot of strength. You carry it back.”
Jiang Miaomiao added immediately after speaking, “In order to thank you, I am willing to take the initiative to cook for ten days… No, I will cook lunch for half a month in a row.”
Lu Qiming sneered mercilessly: “Ha..ha.”
“If you don’t want it, just don’t. What do you curse for? ”
“It takes more than half an hour to get home from here. Even if it is a cow, it is half exhausting to carry it back. The houses next to us are equipped with a full set of household appliances. Although they are old, they all have the same effect. Why should we carry a washing machine all the way back?”
She didn’t think so much. She just wanted to move things home when she saw them.
She can’t wait to move all the supermarket items back, and she won’t come out until she dies.
Jiang Miaomiao murmured, “Since you know, why didn’t you tell me earlier?”
“I’ll go back and get it later. It’s agreed that you will cook lunch for the next half month.”
Lu Qiming smiled cunningly, and she quickly resisted.
“No way! This workload is simply incomparable.”
He pretended not to hear her and walked out happily with a small cart.
Jiang Miaomiao chased after him and wanted to reason with him.
Lu Qiming suddenly made a silent gesture and covered her mouth.
Several zombies passed in front of the two of them lifelessly, leaving a stench that was too strong to disperse.
Lu Qiming released her hand. Jiang Miaomiao immediately fanned the air in front of her and said in a low voice:
“They are simply perpetual motion machines. They can walk for so long without eating or drinking. Their rotten intestines are all over the floor, and they don’t know the pain. ”
In the original text, the zombies seemed to become stronger later.
The survivors were almost annihilated several times, from the male and female protagonists easily playing ten at a time to the finale when they assembled to attack the human base.
How did they get stronger?
At that time, she was only looking for a pitiful emotional drama between the two of them, and she didn’t pay much attention to these settings.
She had known that she would come in the book, and she had lived for so long, that she had to write down every role.
“Let’s go, go find masks and protective clothing.”
When Lu Qiming’s voice sounded, she retracted her gaze and continued to walk forward.
There is a large pharmacy on the road next to the supermarket. Probably someone came and looted it when the zombies broke out. The glass door was smashed to pieces, and many shelves fell down. There are not many medicines left.
The two rummaged together and found only a few erythromycins, a few bottles of alcohol, and commonly used medicines such as cephalosporin and aspirin. There was no trace of masks or protective clothing.
Jiang Miaomiao was a little disappointed. Meanwhile, Lu Qiming suddenly picked up a box and shook it.
“This is suitable for you, take more.”
She leaned over and glanced. The words “Minoxidil liniment” were printed on it, but she couldn’t understand them.
“What is this for? ”
Lu Qiming threw it into her arms, “Just take it. ”
Jiang Miaomiao felt that he had bad intentions, so he opened the box and read the manual. The efficacy column clearly states-the treatment of alopecia areata and hair loss has a significant curative effect.
Jiang Miaomiao: “…you are bald!”
Lu Qiming didn’t make trouble, didn’t get angry, and spoke seriously.
“As a person, you must have the courage to admit the truth and face your own flaws. I am so much taller than you, and every time I look down, I see your hairline moving back and forth. As a friend, I am very worried.”
…Why don’t zombies come to bite this asshole to death?!
Jiang Miaomiao lowered her head and rummaged frantically, found a medicine box, her eyes lit up, and stuffed it into his hand.
“This is for you!”
Lu Qiming lowered his head to check–XX brand kidney treasure tablets.
Reconcile yin and yang, warm the yang, replenish the kidneys, and strengthen the body.
Two courses of treatment will ensure that you are fierce and not going to fall.
Lu Qiming: “…you are ruthless enough.”
She pulled back triumphantly and was about to go aside to find a mask. She accidentally tripped over the shelf and fell to the ground. Her teeth almost flew, and her face was wrinkled with pain.
“Let you be arrogant, you deserve it.”
Lu Qiming’s mouth was mocking, but his movements were very gentle. He helped her up and asked.：
“Are you all right?”
She burst into tears, clutching her mouth and unable to speak.
He wanted to find her some tissues to wipe but saw a hidden door behind the shelf.
Lu Qiming stood up, raised his long legs, and kicked hard.
The door was kicked open, and there were piles of medicines neatly placed inside, and masks and protective clothing were lined up.
“Wow, so many…”
Jiang Miaomiao was so shocked that she forgot the pain and stood up slowly.
Lu Qiming turned his head and looked at her red and swollen upper lips, not knowing whether to laugh or cry.
“Hurry up and get all the things back.”
If she doesn’t deal with it, he is afraid that her mouth will swell into a pig’s mouth.
The two stuffed masks and protective clothing into the cart as much as possible. Jiang Miaomiao opened a set and looked and was surprised to find that they were all medical-type, from headgear to feet, with masks and gloves. The whole person was wrapped up, and not an inch of skin would be exposed.
When you go out to wipe blood in the future, you don’t have to touch your clothes and skin.
When you get home, just take off the protective clothing and keep your body still clean, saving the trouble of taking a bath.
She couldn’t be more tempting when she thought about it and wanted to take all the inventory away.
However, there are too few carts. They only have two hands and limited carrying capacity. They can no longer hold them after only taking more than 30 sets. Then they discuss it, and the rest will come again next time.
When he left, Lu Qiming closed the door and blocked it with shelves to prevent zombies from breaking in and contaminating those treasures.
On the way back, the two walked briskly and were in a happy mood.
If it weren’t for fear of being noticed by zombies, Jiang Miaomiao would have wanted to sing a song of Dongfang Hong.
(Dongfang Hong: The East is Red, north Shaanxi folk song)
She rushed home in high spirits, but Lu Qiming suddenly stopped and grabbed her arm.
“Look, the jewelry store.”
The two had made a bet before that he would give her a lot of jewelry if he lost.
There were too many things that happened during this period. Jiang Miaomiao had forgotten the gambling appointment a long time ago. Today, she remembered when she saw the store and wanted to go in and have a look.
Lu Qiming had no objection, parked the cart at the shop’s door, and walked in with her.
The sudden and rapid outbreak of zombies is actually beneficial. For example, the clerk didn’t have time to lock the door, and the whole street was open. You can enter any store you want, including the bank.
Of course, you have to prevent zombie attacks when you go in. After all, they also come and go freely.
After entering the store, the two held their breaths and observed for a while.
The store is not big, and there are no shelves to block the view, so you can see the end at a glance.
Very safe. There are no zombies.
Jiang Miaomiao was relieved and focused on the counter.
Lu Qiming closed the door casually and walked over to her.
No one took care of it for more than two months, and a thin layer of dust fell on the counter.
With no light shining through, the brilliance of the jewelry looked much inferior to before, but it was still so beautiful that people couldn’t move their eyes.
Jiang Miaomiao took a fancy pair of earrings and wanted to take them, but the counter was locked.
Lu Qiming went to the cashier’s counter and flipped through it, ignoring the pile of pink banknotes inside, found a bunch of small keys, opened the lock behind the counter, and took out the earrings.
Jiang Miaomiao put it on her ear awkwardly and smiled embarrassedly.
“How’s it going?”
She blushed, but fortunately, she was blocked by zombie blood and the opponent
should not be able to see her blush.
Lu Qiming nodded: “Your lips can cut a plate for a drink.”
( Lu Qiming mocking her hurting lips)
She shouldn’t be talking nonsense with him.
Jiang Miaomiao picked out another necklace and a ring, took off the earrings, put them in her pocket, and said:
Lu Qiming was very surprised.
Looking at the posture she liked initially, he thought she would ransack the entire city’s jewelry stores.
“Yeah, I just have one head, and I can’t wear it no matter how much I take it back.”
The house is messy, like a pig’s nest. These beautiful things, let them stay in this shop where time is suspended, and they will be beautiful forever.
Lu Qiming looked at her with more appreciation and opened the door.
When she was about to go out, Jiang Miaomiao felt so itchy that she couldn’t help but take two more bracelets before leaving.
After returning home from a long journey, the first thing she did after entering the door was to take a bath.
Throw away the dirty clothes, change into a new skirt from the supermarket, and put on necklaces, earrings, rings, and bracelets.
Jiang Miaomiao touched her face happily, feeling that she was the most beautiful little fairy in the last days.
There is no mirror in the house, but it doesn’t bother her.
As long as there is a mirror in her heart, she can shine brightly wherever she is.
There is a remaining piece of stainless steel in the living room. Long enough, and she can see her reflection.
She glued it to the wall with tape and took pictures of it narcissistically.
With a soft sound, Jiang Miaomiao turned back.
Lu Qiming put away his mobile phone embarrassingly, obviously not expecting a sound.
“Show me.” She walked up to him and held out her hand.
“I’m taking pictures of the scenery. ”
“Give it to me. ”
Lu Qiming had no choice but to hand over his mobile phone and explain at the same time:
“I just want to try this function to see if it works.”
Jiang Miaomiao didn’t listen to what he said at all. It went in with his left ear and out with her right ear. She turned to the photo he had just taken with a terrible expression on her face.
She was so thin, but he actually made her look 120 pounds, which is also a talent.
“Do you know how to use beauty?”
Lu Qiming looked confused.
“Forget it, you don’t know anything. I’ll teach you, don’t click the camera next time you take a photo, click this…”
She taught him step by step how to take pictures with beauty and taught him PS.
Lu Qiming opened the door to the new world, and under her guidance, he took a few more pictures of her.
The finished product is not so irritating at last. Jiang Miaomiao remembered that when she went to the digital city before, she brought back a bunch of messy things, flipped through them, and found a Bluetooth photo printer.
Connect to Bluetooth, print photos, and post them on the wall.
She only posted her own space. She pressed Lu Qiming to forcibly take a few pictures and post them.
Finally, they took a group photo with her arms around his neck and put it in the middle.
There is a marker pen on the ground next to it, which Lu Qiming used to mark the size when he made the anti-theft window.
Jiang Miaomiao picked it up and drew a large circle outside the photo, with a row of large characters written on the circle- the home of Jiang Miaomiao and Lu Qiming.
Opposite the wall is the villa gate, which can be seen as soon as you come in.
She put on a pen, patted Lu Qiming on the shoulder, and handed him an important task.
“Did you see this? From now on, this will be our territory. If there are bad people or zombies breaking in, you have to protect this home even if you risk your life.”
She was joking purely on a whim, but Lu Qiming seemed to take it seriously. He stared at the photo for a while and nodded.
Jiang Miaomiao shrugged and slipped upstairs to play with her mobile phone while he was not paying attention.
When he came down, Lu Qiming had cooked dinner and sorted out the things he had brought back.
More than 30 sets of protective clothing, more than 200 masks, and dozens of bottles of commonly used medicines are enough for their daily needs for several months.
Of course, this kind of thing is only too little, not too much. There are still a lot of stocks in the pharmacy warehouse, so it is best to get them all back.
Lu Qiming picked up a bottle of anti-inflammatory spray and waved to her.
“Why?” she asked cautiously.
“Your mouth is so swollen that you can’t speak, so spray some medicine.”
Jiang Miaomiao walked over, and he pressed the spray.
The potion landed on her wound, and it immediately became painful to inhale. And she stepped back and waved her hand back and forth to say no.
Lu Qiming said, “Bear with it, it won’t hurt for a while.”
……Why does this sound so awkward?
Jiang Miaomiao covered her mouth and buzzed when she spoke.
“It doesn’t hurt if I stand and talk. ”
“Are you sure you won’t spray?” Lu Qiming said slowly, “The wound will become inflamed if it gets wet. Inflammation can easily lead to a high fever. If the high fever persists, you will become a fool. If you become a fool, I won’t keep you. I will throw you out to feed the zombies the next day.”
He shook the spray and raised his eyebrows.
Jiang Miaomiao gritted her teeth, stood up, and walked over, letting him apply the potion to her lips.
Peppermint was added to the medicine. She couldn’t sleep well all night when it was cold. She always felt the wind blowing in her mouth.
When she woke up the next day, Lu Qiming sat on the mattress and said seriously：
“Our material reserves are already too high. The most important thing right now is to improve our ability to protect ourselves, especially you. ”
Living in an era when zombies are rampant, dangers are everywhere.
Although the two of them are inseparable day and night and sleep together, there are always times when rescue is not timely.
By then, her own fighting effectiveness will be very important.
“I thought about it, there are two options.”
Jiang Miaomiao asked, “Which two are there?”
“The first is to strengthen your training, increase your speed and strength, conduct regular combat exercises with zombies to ensure that at least one person can deal with two to three zombies. ”
This is obviously whimsical. She has difficulty dealing with the two big men.
Jiang Miaomiao never overestimated her abilities and asked, “What about the second one?”
With the power of weapons.”
Lu Qiming went to the door and brought a large bag of things, and placed it in front of her.
“Here are some things I collected, you can see which one is the best in your hands.”
Jiang Miaomiao took out a silver fruit knife.
The blade is bright, and it is more suitable as a mirror than the steel sheet on the living room wall.
She subconsciously raised her chin and took a photo twice. She was very satisfied with her thick eyelashes. She only reacted when she caught a glimpse of Lu Qiming’s speechless gaze and immediately threw away her knife and said, “I don’t need it.”
She fights with the zombies with a knife with her skills, fearing that she will not stab the other party and cut herself first.
The injury on her neck hasn’t been long, absolutely not.
