Chapter 27 (1/2)
The little zombie is dead.
You can’t be alive and kicking like a living person, nor can you wander persistently for food like a zombie.
It won’t take long for its flesh and blood to turn into dust, and it’s hard bones will blend into the soil after countless winds and rains.
Jiang Miaomiao couldn’t know whether his death was because his life had ended or he couldn’t stand their torture for many days.
In any case, it died in their captivity.
This fact made her feel like a cruel executioner.
When she returned to bed that night, Jiang Miaomiao tossed and turned and couldn’t sleep. The next morning, with dark circles under her eyes, he asked Lu Qiming something.
“Can we find a place to bury it?”
Its blood provided them with safety for many days, and it was a reward to find a place for it to be buried instead of letting it expose its body in the wilderness.
Lu Qiming’s original plan was to let go of its blood for two more days and throw it out when it was completely rotten and unusable.
But seeing Jiang Miaomiao’s brooding look was not easy to refuse, so he nodded and agreed.
They can’t go too far and can’t bury it on the city’s main roads, so the best cemetery is the lawn next to the artificial lake.
Sitting facing north and south, facing the sun, with flowers and grass. It can be regarded as a feng shui treasure land.
The two of them acted on their own. Jiang Miaomiao went to the neighbor’s house next door, found a clean set of children’s clothes to change in, and found a car toy and stuffed it in its hand.
Lu Qiming took a small washbasin, squeezed the last essence of the little zombie, released all the blood that could be put on it, and kept it in the wash basin for preservation.
There is not much blood. Both of them can use it two or three times at most, and then how to go out is another problem.
But this is not what matters at the moment. The two wore protective clothing, smeared with blood, opened the door, lifted the little zombie wrapped in a new sheet, and walked to the lake.
Lu Qiming had already dug a small pit more than one meter long and more than half a meter wide. They put the little zombie in, covered it with soil, and inserted a warning sign pulled from the lawn at the top of the grave. The slogan on it is still not faded. -the little feet don’t run around, and the grass smiles slightly.
If she is lucky enough to live to the end of the world and is lucky enough to meet this child’s family, she can bring them over to see.
Of course, the chances of that kind of thing are small, but Jiang Miaomiao is willing to think about it.
Surviving in a difficult environment requires thinking, just like a piece of sugar in your hand when you finish drinking Chinese medicine.
Just think about it. The suffering of traditional Chinese medicine is not so unbearable.
She stood on the grass, looking at the high-rise buildings in the distance, and once again felt fortunate that she was still alive.
Lu Qiming rested on the shovel for a while, lowered his eyes and said：
“We need to catch another zombie.”
They have to eat and go out to find supplies. Protective clothing alone can’t guarantee safety.
The most important task at the moment is to catch zombies.
Jiang Miaomiao hummed, “Do you still use the previous method?”
“Yes, lead one into the villa and close the door to deal with it alone.”
“Let me do it.”
She recommended herself, and Lu Qiming’s expression was surprising.
“Aren’t you afraid?”
Thinking of letting her stand on the stairs and shout, she refused to agree.
“I’m afraid.” Jiang Miaomiao said, “But I’m even more afraid that you won’t be able to deal with it alone and you will get hurt.”
Lu Qiming’s expression was even more surprising when he heard the words.
“You care about me?”
What the heck?
Jiang Miaomiao plausibly said, “What’s so strange about this, even if my dog is stolen and eaten by someone, I have to feel distressed for half a month.”
Lu Qiming couldn’t laugh or cry, “Can’t you say something nice to make me happy?”
She shrugged, packed her things and went home.
At nightfall, the zombies became active.
A zombie passed by the door, with only one high-heeled shoe left on its foot, limping when walking.
The white dress has become extremely dirty, the mucus oozing from the eyes washes away the eyeliner, and the long hair that should have been dense and fluffy is much thinner due to the falling scalp.
There are no other zombies around it, and it is more than ten meters away from the nearest one.
It doesn’t look very strong, and the speed is slow, which is a good choice for catching.
Jiang Miaomiao gestured to Lu Qiming, opened the door, stood in a single coat with a small satchel on her back, beckoned to the zombies, and shouted in a low voice.
“Hey, come in.”
The other party turned its head slowly. The cloudy and dull eyes lit up obviously after seeing her. It twitches its nose hard, smelled the fresh living breath on her body, and rushed over excitedly.
Jiang Miaomiao counted the beats and backed away. At the same time, she clenched the chainsaw in her shoulder bag, ready to press the switch as soon as something went wrong to protect herself.
She retreated to the coffee table in just a few seconds, and the zombies rushed into the villa.
Lu Qiming, who was ambushed behind the door, immediately closed the door, picked up the big bed sheet that had been prepared a long time ago, and jumped up to attack it.
He is very good at putting zombies into the sheets accurately.
Jiang Miaomiao didn’t have time to relax, let go of the chainsaw, grabbed the rope, and ran over to help him tie it together.
Everything went well, and the two even smiled at each other, seeing the joy in each other’s eyes.
However, in the next second, the zombie who had been bound actually tore the sheets with its mutilated teeth and struggled.
Jiang Miaomiao was taken aback and at a loss.
Lu Qiming was also surprised and whispered:
“Don’t be afraid, this rope is a climbing rope and has a large load-bearing capacity. Even a lion may not be able to break it. Let’s tie it up quickly.”
She was relieved by these words and summoned up the courage to continue.
The zombie’s rotting throat made a terrifying cry, colliding with the rope like a bull. Its mouth leaned in front of Jiang Miaomiao, and the fishy smell rushed straight to her face.
She held her breath, gritted her teeth, and told herself not to be afraid, it was important to complete the task at hand, and the zombies kept getting the rope.
But there was a bang in her ear, and the broken rope bounced on her face like a strong whip, instantly pulling out a blood mark on her soft cheek.
Then she heard Lu Qiming’s eager shouting.
She was completely blindfolded, turned around and ran in confusion.
A sharp claw grabbed her clothes and dragged her back desperately.
She turned her head and saw the zombie open its bloody mouth. Her whole body stiffened in shock, and she didn’t even have the strength to shout for help.
At a critical moment, Lu Qiming picked up the chainsaw from her waist, pressed the switch, and cut at the zombie’s head.
Flesh and blood splattered.
It didn’t stop panting until its upper body was almost split in half.
The zombie fell to the ground, twitching, its hands still scratching on the floor, but it couldn’t stand up anymore.
Lu Qiming cursed in a low voice, threw away the chainsaw, turned around and hugged Jiang Miaomiao.
“Are you okay?”
The latter started with horrified eyes, obviously frightened and unable to respond to him.
He carried her to the sofa, fetched a basin of hot water, scrubbed her face vigorously, and pinched her.
He unbuttoned her shirt and covered her tender breasts with a hot towel.
After a series of operations, Jiang Miaomiao gradually recovered her sanity and heard Jiang Meimu’s uneasy cry in her ears.
She stretched out her cold hand.
Lu Qiming quickly held it, pressed it to his heart, and comforted her in a low voice.
“It’s okay, we’re safe.”
The strong heartbeat of the other party completely calmed her down, and she sat up with fear, seeing the corpse of a zombie still trembling on the floor.
“Why is it so powerful?”
When it comes to physique, it is not even half as good as the original golden half-buttocks.
But after the golden half buttocks were covered, it lost its combat effectiveness.
Lu Qiming was also surprised, took her hand, walked to the body, and squatted down to check.
Jiang Meimu smelled it curiously, and Jiang Miaomiao quickly kicked it away.
“Go upstairs, don’t stay here.”
In case something happens again, they can’t protect themselves, so where can they protect it?
Jiang Meimu was driven upstairs. Miaomiao dragged her soft legs, brought gloves, and put them on both herself and Lu Qiming.
The two looked at the zombie carefully and found nothing unusual at first, until Lu Qiming scraped off the rotten flesh on its arm with a knife, exposing the joints, and pulled hard, his face changing.
“It seems… it’s getting stronger.”
According to the degree of decay, its bones cannot be as strong as they are now.
Jiang Miaomiao thumped in her heart, knowing that her good days were about to end.
In the original novel, the zombies have become smaller in number as time goes by, but their power has become stronger.
Originally, the government forces could easily crush them with weapons and counterattack when they found the right opportunity.
Who knew that the damage caused by the guns was minimal, but humans were slaughtered several times?
The army has guns, but it is difficult to deal with zombies.
The most powerful thing in their hand is a small chainsaw, which can be used as a bird tool in the face of such a powerful monster.
Not to think about something too far away, the food in the villa can last up to half a month.
They will starve to death if they don’t go out to replenish supplies for half a month.
When the two realized this, they were both in a heavy mood and had no intention of doing anything else.
Jiang Miaomiao went back to the room. Lu Qiming threw the incapacitated zombie into the room where the little zombie had been closed before, locked the door, and went upstairs.
He went to the bathroom to rinse off the blood and scraps of meat that had splashed on his body, changed into clean clothes, passed by Jiang Miaomiao’s door, and knocked.
The tired voice of a woman came from inside.
“I’m going to sleep.”
“Your face is injured. Have you applied medicine to the wound? The rope is dirty and easily infected.”
Listening to his reminder, she touched her cheek unknowingly. Her fingers touched the tender flesh exposed from the wound, and she inhaled in pain.
No wonder half of her face has been numb.
Jiang Miaomiao opened the door, and Lu Qiming walked in with medicinal powder and disinfectant cotton in his hand and sat by the bed to apply medicine to her.
Her curtains are pink, her quilt is pink, and her pajamas are pink.
There was a gouache flower painting hanging on the wall. This room portrays the girl’s heart almost overflowing.
In normal times, Lu Qiming would inevitably laugh at a few words.
But at this moment, looking at her sad face, his heart only felt distressed.
“If it leaves a scar and makes you ugly, will you scold me to death?”
He told her that the zombies couldn’t get the climbing rope.
If he hadn’t said that, maybe she would be fine.
Jiang Miaomiao was still immersed in grief that she would not live long and would no longer be able to enjoy the delicious food and beautiful scenery absent-mindedly.
“You don’t mind?”
She smiled bitterly, “My life is almost gone, so what’s the matter with a scar?”
Lu Qiming frowned.
“Who said your life is almost gone?”
“Is there any other choice? We can’t even subdue a single female zombie. If they attack in groups in the future, we can’t just lie down and die.”
She thought of something and patted her thigh regretfully.
“When we moved before, I should have brought the gas.”
If you are unlucky enough to touch the electric door, then you don’t succeed in dying immediately. You are half-dead from electricity, how painful it will be, also to develop urinary incontinence too.
It’s still reliable to turn on the gas.
Lu Qiming’s face became even more ugly when he heard her say that.
