Chapter 27 (2/2)
“You have to have confidence in us.”
Jiang Miaomiao wanted to refute a few words. Still, after saying it at the beginning, she felt meaningless and stretched her arm at him.
He was suspicious, “What are you doing?”
She took the initiative to hug him, her chest against his chest, and the heartbeat of the two was surprisingly consistent.
“Anyway, I’m still very happy to live with you until now. I just hope you promise me one thing. If I get bitten by a zombie one day, please don’t save me, give me a good time.”
She didn’t believe that she had Lu Qiming’s good luck and wouldn’t get infected if she was bitten.
As long as she thinks about herself, she will become like a zombie outside, without sanity and emotion, wandering forever and ever to eat human flesh, rotten to the point of breaking her feet, and her scalp will be numb. She doesn’t want to live like that for a second.
It’s better to die. She was going to die, but she postponed it a little bit.
Lu Qiming couldn’t persuade her, so after applying the medicine to her, he put away his things and said：
“Get a good night’s sleep.”
Maybe when she feels better, her thoughts will not be so pessimistic.
He took something and walked out. Jiang Miaomiao shrank in the bed and closed her eyes.
What happened today was so terrifying. She played it back in her mind repeatedly. She couldn’t sleep at all and finally yelled at the wall.
There was no response from the next door, probably already asleep.
Alas, he is such a neurotic person. No matter what happens, it will not affect his sleep quality.
She really envies.
Jiang Miaomiao tried to fall asleep, but the door was suddenly pushed open. Lu Qiming walked over with his pillow and drilled into her bed.
“I will only sleep with you for one night.”
“Who wants you to accompany…”
She reflexively wanted to push him away, but when her fingers touched his warm chest, she immediately changed her mind and hugged him.
“Okay, thank you very much.”
They hugged each other politely. Lu Qiming smelled the fragrant shampoo in her hair and suddenly said：
“You should always wear underwear in the future.”
“Otherwise, it would be embarrassing for me to untie my clothes.”
Jiang Miaomiao pinched his fingers and giggled, “Didn’t you say that there is no difference between the front and the back of me? What else do you care about.”
“There is no difference in wearing clothes, but there are still some when you take it off.”
Unable to bear it, she punched him in the chest.
Lu Qiming laughed, rubbed her blown hair, and hugged her in his arms.
“Just kidding, go to bed!”
Jiang Miaomiao was so angry. How could she fall asleep?
But when his snoring sounded, she felt relaxed as if she had taken a sleeping pill and quickly fell asleep.
The next morning, Lu Qiming got up, as usual, to wash the rice and cook porridge.
Jiang Miaomiao woke up very early in the morning. When changing clothes, she put on underwear and stood by the window doing nothing.
She caught a glimpse of Lu Qiming putting rice in the rice cooker and said quickly：
Lu Qiming was puzzled, “It’s usually that much, can we be full?”
“If you can’t eat enough, you have to endure it. If we eat two bites less per person, we can save a meal in a few days. We don’t know when we can go out, we have to think about it for the future.”
“Yo, now she knows that she has considered it for the future, there’s progress! Okay, I’ll put less two handfuls of rice.”
The direct result of less rice is that after breakfast, a family of three licked their mouths at the empty bowl, and they were not full at all.
To divert attention, Jiang Miaomiao stretched out, walked to the window and said：
“We have to observe them so that we can win every battle by knowing ourselves and the enemy.”
Because they can’t go out, the number of tableware is getting smaller and smaller. They can’t support the consumption of running water to eat a meal and throw a set, so they can only reuse it.
Lu Qiming piled the dishes into the washbasin, took out his mobile phone from his pocket, sat on the sofa and said：
“You observe, I’ll play for a while.”
“You can play, but you wash the bowl.”
She made a request.
“Yes, but you make lunch.”
The two reached an agreement, and each did their own thing.
Jiang Meimu lay on its special mat, gnawing on a slipper.
Jiang Miaomiao intently observed the zombies outside the window, feeling they seemed to walk faster, and quickly asked Lu Qiming to look.
Lu Qiming held his mobile phone to play games without raising his head.
“Are you sure it’s not your psychological effect?”
She took a closer look and was really unsure.
However, after a while, she whispered again：
“Damn it! Come here, come here!”
Lu Qiming paused the game and walked behind her.
“What did you see excited like this? Are zombies having a party?”
She eagerly held his face and asked him to look at the zombie she had noticed.
“See for yourself!”
It was a middle-aged male zombie with a bloated body, nothing special except for a rotten stomach and intestines dragging on the ground.
Due to the heat, its body attracted a lot of flies buzzing around it.
They discovered this situation a month ago, so they especially put a layer of gauze on the window to prevent flies from flying in.
This is not a new discovery. Lu Qiming asked：
“What are you going to show me…”
Before the words were finished, the zombie suddenly stuck out its tongue, sucked the fly parked at the mouth, rolled it into its mouth, and swallowed it without chewing it.
Jiang Miaomiao said, “Did you see it? So disgusting!”
Lu Qiming was silent.
In the past, zombies only ate humans and animals, not insects, because the presence of insects was too weak to detect, and it didn’t matter if maggots crawled around on them.
Now that they even eat flies, it means…
He didn’t think about it deeply and didn’t want to add trouble to himself.
Jiang Miaomiao looked disgusted, went to sit on the sofa, and murmured：
“Even if we get zombie blood in the future, I’m afraid it will be difficult to go out smoothly.”
Lu Qiming sat opposite her, straightening his long legs.：
“Don’t think about it, let’s play flying chess.”
“At this time, you still have the mind to play flying chess…”
Jiang Miaomiao changed her mind halfway through complaining, clapped her hands and said, “Okay, if you lose, you will make lunch.”
Lu Qiming lost several sets in a row. She put the troubles behind her, happily ordered a few dishes, and sat at the table waiting to eat.
During the day, there is someone to accompany her to pass the time. When she sleep alone at night, the fear surfaces involuntarily.
She had a nightmare all night. In her dream, she ran by herself, chased by zombies, ran to the roof of a building with no way to run, and was swallowed up by the vast zombies.
Sleeping this night was more tiring than not sleeping, but when she woke up and opened her eyes, she saw Lu Qiming lying next to her, sleeping heavily with his arms around her.
Jiang Meimu also slipped in and fell asleep on the carpet.
It was already dawn, and the sun shone gently on them through the glass and thin curtains.
There is a house, a bed, food, and water.
There are dogs and men.
It would be great if it would always be like this.
Jiang Miaomiao broke free from the dark and desperate dream, lay on the soft bed, and looked at Lu Qiming’s face with interest.
He is much likelier when he is asleep than when he is awake. At least she will not be half-mad at every turn.
The lines from the eyebrow bone to the bridge of the nose are beautiful, and the skin is also good. Obviously, she has never seen him use skin care products. It is so rough that his skin is still firm and elastic.
His eyelashes were still long, and Jiang Miaomiao was jealous when she saw them. She wanted to shove it down and put it on her eyes.
She stretched out her fingers, her fingers crossed his thick and dark eyebrows, and she couldn’t help but raise the corners of her mouth.
“If you want to see me, just look at it honestly. Why bother to peek while I’m asleep?”
Lu Qiming opened his eyes with a playful smile on the corner of his mouth.
Jiang Miaomiao pulled back her fingers and rolled her eyes.
“Don’t be too sentimental, I just saw the shit on your face.”
“…you just pretend.”
Lu Qiming got off the ground and went to the bathroom to wash his face and brush his teeth. Jiang Miaomiao walked to the window to look at the scenery. When she saw something, she covered the tip of her mouth and screamed.
“What’s the matter?”
He took a toothbrush and came out with his mouth full of foam.
Jiang Miaomiao pointed to that place. He looked in the direction of her fingertips. He saw a mutilated zombie lying in the open space outside the villa courtyard.
Zombies have been rotting for a long time, and they commonly lack hands and feet.
But its entire abdominal cavity was emptied, leaving only a few bits of flesh on its limbs. Its bones were almost completely exposed as if it had been devoured frantically by something.
Lu Qiming’s expression became serious, and Jiang Miaomiao was particularly upset.
“Do you think it will be…”
Before the words were finished, a group of zombies staggered over.
One of them passed by the corpse, squatted down to sniff, raised its arm and gnawed at the pitiful minced meat.
After taking a few bites, it suddenly fell to the ground and made no movement.
The remaining zombies pounced on it.
After a strange scream that numbed people’s skin, an extra skeleton was on the ground.
The two hid behind the glass and were speechless in surprise when they witnessed the whole process.
The zombies were about to leave, and one of them stopped in place and raised his head abruptly, staring straight at them with blood-red eyes.
Jiang Miaomiao took a deep breath and quickly backed away.
Lu Qiming quickly closed the curtains.
The zombies rushed towards the villa and were blocked by the hard walls.
The companions were all gone, and it wandered for a while and couldn’t get in, so it slowly left.
Lu Qiming stood by the window, opened a gap in the curtain and looked out, then turned around and said：
Jiang Miaomiao recalled the bloody scene and almost collapsed on the ground.
“They, why do they eat all the species?”
Could this be why they became stronger?
Lu Qiming closed the window and patted her shoulder.
“Let’s go wash and have breakfast first.”
He helped her stand up. She suddenly thought of something and ran upstairs to look out.
The grave buried a few days ago has been dug up, and a small skeleton was abandoned on the lake.
Lu Qiming walked behind her and whispered：
“I’m afraid the next few days will be a bit more difficult.”
After a hasty meal, the two found all the paper, packaging bags, clothes, etc., that could be used at home. They stuck them on the glass so as not to be seen by the zombies.
The windows are no longer opened, and the garbage is not thrown out at will. Trying not to let the zombies smell their scent.
But even so, something unexpected happened to them.
That night, as night fell, Jiang Miaomiao prepared to cook and turned on the lights as usual.
Not long after, there was a violent crashing sound from the door and window.
