Chapter 26 (2/2)
Lu Qiming asked, “Just leave?”
“Otherwise? I have already lost.”
If she stays, then she can’t make a comeback against him, and she has to be laughed at by him.
Lu Qiming also put away his fishing rod, looked at the sunset in the distance, and said：
“The weather is really nice today.”
When Jiang Miaomiao heard the words and looked over, she was also taken aback.
Large tracts of intensely colored sunset filled half of the sky, and golden light fell on the buildings standing in the distance.
The color dilutes the lifelessness of the city. If she ignores the zombies in the community, she will think that she is living before the end of the world.
How long will this kind of life take if she doesn’t die?
The original male and female protagonists only followed the government to return to the city more than ten years later.
She really didn’t have the confidence to last until that time.
Seeing the sparkle of water in her eyes, Lu Qiming patted her shoulder.
Well, anyway, at least she still has a home.
There is food at home, hot water, a comfortable bed and sofa, a strong man, and a cute dog.
With this alone, she is already luckier than many people.
The two carried buckets and fishing rods, calling for Jiang Meimu, and a family of three returned triumphantly in the sun’s rays.
Jiang Miaomiao was willing to admit defeat, so she took off her clothes and went to the kitchen to cook.
Lu Qiming was initially just waiting to eat, but he came in after a while, rolled up his sleeves, and asked:
“Is there anything I can help you with?”
She glanced at him in surprise.
“You actually took the initiative to help?”
What a good day it is today. She should really burn incense.
Lu Qiming smiled and said, “What’s so surprising, haven’t I always been very hardworking? What about the fish? Steamed or braised?”
“Make sauerkraut fish.”
When they went to the supermarket to get food, they returned with a lot of spices, including sauerkraut and fish buns.
Sometimes Jiang Miaomiao was so greedy that she couldn’t control herself to find spicy strips to eat. She would sneak downstairs in the middle of the night and open a pack to satisfy her taste buds.
Now it can finally come in handy officially.
The sauerkraut fish needs to be sliced, Lu Qiming has a good knife, and the job belongs to him.
Jiang Miaomiao was washing rice and vegetables next to her. During the half-month, when she was bored at home and couldn’t get out, she put out some green bean sprouts.
The small vegetables have also grown and are not fully mature yet. Still, Miaomiao couldn’t help being greedy, so she picked a handful and prepared to put it in the fish as an ingredient.
Lu Qiming took a kitchen knife and tied his apron. He stood tall in front of the cutting board, carefully and patiently slicing the fish.
Koi is really suitable for viewing rather than eating. The meat is rough and has many thorns, which is very troublesome to deal with.
He hung his head half-down. His hair that hadn’t been trimmed for too long hung down, covering his eyebrows, the bridge of his nose was so high, and the lines of his side face were perfect.
“Can you help me?” He asked suddenly.
Jiang Miaomiao put down the small vegetables.
“Find a clip to clip my hair that keeps covering my eyes.”
She ran to the balcony, brought two small colored plastic clips for socks, and stood on tiptoe to clip him, one on the left and one on the right, like a pair of tiny ears.
Lu Qiming twisted his neck.
“Thank you. It’s much more convenient.”
His bangs were rolled up, showing beautiful eyebrows, and every expression was like a silent temptation.
Jiang Miaomiao looked at him blankly. Her heartbeat suddenly accelerated. She didn’t hold back, leaned over, and kissed him on the mouth.
Lu Qiming was still talking, his voice stopped abruptly when she kissed him, and his eyes widened in shock.
Her sanity returned to her mind, knowing she had done something wrong, but she couldn’t pull her face to apologize.
So in a panic, she made the stupidest decision-turned her head and ran away.
Leaving a room full of embarrassing air with Lu Qiming, who couldn’t laugh or cry.
Jiang Miaomiao fled back to the room, locked the door, and sat on the bed gasping for breath.
Mom, what did she do?
Lu Qiming wouldn’t mistakenly think that she likes him, right? She simply covets his beauty.
If it were someone with a crooked nose and a grin, she would not kiss that person even if she had been alone with him for a hundred years.
What should she do? How to explain?
She was holding the pillow in a daze, and she accidentally looked up and saw her flushed face in the floor-to-ceiling mirror. She became more ashamed and couldn’t get out of the quilt.
Half an hour later, the smell of sauerkraut fish came from the door’s crack, and Lu Qiming walked to the door and called her.
“Miaomiao, it’s time to eat.”
His tone sounded normal, as if nothing had happened.
Jiang Miaomiao tentatively opened the door and saw his handsome face again.
He smiled and didn’t mention a word about being forcibly kissed.
“Let’s go, the sauerkraut fish is ready.”
She followed him downstairs restlessly, served food, and ate.
Lu Qiming remembered something, looked at her, and said：
“Next time you want to kiss me, don’t steal eat the sauerkraut first”
The taste is delicious.
The rice in Jiang Miaomiao’s mouth sprayed all over the table, the rice grains stuck in the trachea, and he coughed frantically.
Lu Qiming poured her water with a smile and slapped her back.
“Why are you in such a hurry to eat? No one is robbing you.”
Jiang Miaomiao grabbed his arm hard and raised her pair of watery eyes due to coughing.
“I haven’t met another man for too long, that’s why it’s like that, really! Don’t get me wrong!”
“What’s the misunderstanding?”
“Misunderstanding… Hi, anyway, just treat it as if nothing happened.”
“That won’t work.” Lu Qiming raised his face.
She didn’t know what to do. She hesitated.
“You, what do you want?”
“No matter what you do, you must be fair.”
His big hand held the back of her head, and with the other hand, he took a paper towel and wiped off the rice grains on her face.
I want to kiss back.”
The man’s lips pressed over, utterly different from the feeling when she kissed him forcibly.
His breath was rough and scorching, with domineering aggressiveness, like general fighting on the battlefield.
But when he pried open her mouth, his lips and tongue were soft again, guiding her softly, and soon the water and fire blended.
The kiss didn’t last long, and Jiang Miaomiao didn’t even realize it was over.
After Lu Qiming finished his meal, he went to the bathroom to shower.
During the half-month of isolation, he could only wipe his body with a wet towel daily, which was very unpleasant.
Jiang Miaomiao sat in a chair and was awakened by Jiang Meimu’s cry.
The fish was so fragrant that its tail wagged into a propeller.
She took a large piece and put it in a small bowl. When she got up, she saw Lu Qiming’s bowl and couldn’t help but recall the kiss.
It’s not good to eat sauerkraut before kissing, really.
But what are they doing?
In the end times, lonely men and women use each other to relieve loneliness, or it’s…
The more she thought about it, the more upset she became. She didn’t even have the mind to eat the sauerkraut fish she had been looking forward to for so long. She went upstairs and lay on the bed, looking at the ceiling in a daze.
Lu Qiming suddenly opened the door and walked in, with an expression on his face that she had never seen before.
Publicity, temptation, ***.
He walked to the bed and sat down without asking, making Jiang Miaomiao shrink back in fright.
“what are you going to do?”
“Don’t play stupid, I know you want it.”
He undressed as he spoke, revealing his strong abdominal muscles and slender physique. The strong scent of male hormones was revealed in this small pink room.
Jiang Miaomiao’s cheeks were hot, her breathing was short, and her heart beat wildly. She was so scared to death but also so excited that she squeezed the quilt and said.：
“I, I won’t be responsible if I fall asleep!”
“I don’t want to be responsible, I just…have fun.”
Lu Qiming raised his lips, smiled, and hugged her with his strong arms.
She struggled unconsciously due to nervousness and fell out of bed with a bang.
When she opened her eyes, Lu Qiming was gone, and his abdominal muscles were gone, leaving only her flushed face and the messy quilt.
It was a dream…
She touched her hot forehead and crawled back to the bed, relieved and regretful.
What is relieving is that they did not have such an embarrassing incident, so they will not be unable to face each other in the future.
It’s a pity… just like a person who has been walking in the desert for many days sees a mirage, can see it, but can’t touch it.
Lu Qiming knocked on the door outside.
“Miaomiao, what was that voice just now?”
Since zombies crawled in before, he has been a lot more vigilant in this regard.
Jiang Miaomiao wouldn’t tell the truth even if she was beaten to death. She hid in the bed and said:
“My phone fell on the ground.”
“I don’t trust you. Let me see.”
She took a few deep breaths and opened the door, pretending nothing had happened.
Lu Qiming checked the window first to ensure it was not damaged before turning his head to look at her.
At this point, it seems that something is not correct.
“Why is your face so red? Do you have a fever?”
Jiang Miaomiao couldn’t help it either. When he passed in front of her, she couldn’t help but think of his appearance in her dream, and the blood rushed to her face desperately, unable to hold back.
“It’s okay, it’s okay, it’s too hot.”
Lu Qiming’s eyes were suspicious.
“Would I lie to you? What’s so deceptive about this? Be reserved, don’t enter the girl’s room casually, okay?”
Jiang Miaomiao pushed him out. Lu Qiming was pushed outside the door by her and suddenly raised his index finger and hissed.
“Don’t talk, listen.”
She closed her mouth inexplicably and listened intently. Downstairs came the sound of Jiang Meimu scratching the door panel, accompanied by an uneasy whine.
It is rarely like this. Even if it is called them, it is because it wants to eat.
But it obviously had a full dinner.
The two of them invariably remembered the terrifying experience of zombies breaking in. They quietly took a small chainsaw, held their breath, and walked on.
The further down, the clearer Jiang Meimu’s scratching sound became.
Jiang Miaomiao distinguished the direction and said incomprehensibly: “It seems to be scratching the door of the little zombie.”
Lu Qiming nodded, checked the entire first floor, and came to Jiang Meimu after confirming that there was no abnormality.
It became even more exciting when it saw the owner, and it tried very hard to open the door.
Jiang Miaomiao took out the key, Lu Qiming clenched the chainsaw to be prepared，
The door was opened, there was nothing extra in the room, and it was ridiculously quiet.
The little zombie lay quietly on the ground, motionless, not as usual, not disturbed by their arrival.
The eyes of the two fell on it. Lu Qiming walked over and kicked it with the tip of his shoe. After still unresponsive, he squatted down and uncovered the sheets to check.
“It seems… dead.”
A few minutes later, he looked up at Jiang Miaomiao and said these words.
Zombies are initially dead things, and their hearts can’t even beat.
Could it be that…the energy in the body of the little zombies can’t support their demands for so many days, and they are about to “disappear” in the true sense?
Jiang Miaomiao walked over in shock, put on her gloves, and touched the head of the little zombie.
It was so rotten that its scalp fell off, revealing a small, round skull.
The whole body is sticky and smelly. Only the golden longevity lock on the neck still reflects the original luster.
The author has something to say: Lao Lu: I heard that someone is greedy, and I still refuse to admit it, humph.
