Chapter 31 (1/2)

Lu Qiming was woken up and found water on the ground. He was also bewildered.

Jiang Meimu’s feet were low, its entire stomach was wet, and strands of dog hair stuck to its body.

Jiang Miaomiao quickly picked up the bags beside her and hugged them in her arms, fearing they would get wet.

Fortunately, the plastic bag was quite strong and no water leaked in.

Lu Qiming took out the flashlight from his coat pocket and looked around.

The ground of the vault is covered by a layer of water, and the water comes from outside the door. Because the lock of the vault door is damaged, it cannot be completely closed, leaving a gap, and the water is still flowing in from the outside, showing rising.

Due to the sudden change, the already closed environment became darker and more humid, making them uncomfortable when they were used to the warmth.

Their shoes were all wet. Jiang Miaomiao rolled up the trousers twice and worriedly looked at Lu Qiming’s legs.

“Your injury hasn’t healed yet, the water is very dirty, won’t it be infected?”

Lu Qiming didn’t care about it so much now, looked at the door and said:

“Don’t move here, I’ll go out and have a look.”

It is necessary to find out the source of the water. Otherwise, they will drown in it if it is allowed to rise.

Jiang Miaomiao grabbed his arm, supported him and said:

“Go together.”

“It’s dangerous outside, what should You do if I encounter zombies? It’s night now.”

“I know, I have to protect you.”

“Protect me?” Lu Qiming almost laughed out loud.

Jiang Miaomiao said: “You used to be stronger than me, but it’s different now. With your current skill and physical strength, I guess you can’t even beat the Zombie. How can you go out alone?”

He thought for a while, then handed her the flashlight.

“It makes sense, you should go and find out the situation, and I will stay here with the silly dog and wait for you to come back.”

Jiang Miaomiao: “…No, let’s go together!”

“I am wounded.”

“If you want to die, die together, if you want to live, live together, no one is allowed to be left behind!”

Seeing that she was getting impatient, he stopped teasing her and walked out, half leaning on her.

Jiang Meimu was afraid of this strange and dark place, so it consciously kept up without a leash.

They opened the vault door, first took a flashlight to shine on the opposite wall, and went out after hearing no suspicious movement.

Conditions in the corridors were no better than in the vaults, the water had washed out the rubbish in the corners, and the musty smell was nauseating.

Jiang Miaomiao was walking well when she suddenly heard a loud crash beside her. She reflexively picked up the chainsaw, turned on the switch, and was ready to face the zombies.

Lu Qiming listened with his ears and shook his head.

“It’s okay, it’s water.”

She shined it with a flashlight, only to realize that there was an elevator door next to her, which was still rattling. Obviously, water had entered the elevator shaft.

Where on earth did so much water come from?

A broken water pipe? Impossible, the waterworks were damaged long ago, and they have not supplied water for a long time. Otherwise, they would not have had to go to the lake to get it.

The two walked through the corridor and came to the fire exit.

The sound of the water became louder. Looking up, the water flowed like a small waterfall.

Flow down.

This sensational scene made Jiang Meimu shrink back, hiding in a corner and not daring to move forward.

Jiang Miaomiao picked it up, held it with her arms, and helped Lu Qiming go up against the current, step by step.

When they came to the first floor, the two saw the scene outside the window and finally understood how the water came.

Rain, heavy rain.

Before entering the vault, it was still drizzling, but now it was pouring down as if money was not needed. Countless raindrops hit the glass, making it ping-pong as if it would be smashed to pieces in the next second.

The accumulated water on the road has turned into a river, and the hall has also flooded. Many small things such as paper, pens and plastic bags are floating on the water, floating back and forth with the ripples.

Jiang Miaomiao suddenly woke up.

“Could it be that the zombies foresaw the heavy rain in advance, so they hid?”

Animals often have abnormal reactions before the outbreak of natural disasters. Zombies are more sensitive than humans and probably have the same ability?

How long will it rain?

She looked down at the water level, it only reached her ankle before she got out of the vault, but now it has reached her calf.

The sky suddenly flashed violently, followed by a loud bang.

Jiang Miaomiao was so frightened that she dropped the dog. She hugged Lu Qiming subconsciously, her heart beating wildly because of the sudden lightning.

Lu Qiming picked up the dog, looked at the corridor and said:

“We’d better go upstairs and hide.”

“Will the water level rise that high?”

High enough to drown a person?

She had never experienced a flood and had no idea about it.

Lu Qiming said: “I’m not afraid, just in case. The vault is too low, so we can’t stay here for now.”

Jiang Miaomiao nodded, helped him back to the corridor, and continued to climb up.

A box of instant coffee floated by. She picked it up sharply and stuffed it into a plastic bag.

There was a flashlight to open the way, and the two quickly climbed to the second floor.

The second floor was not flooded; only some rain leaked through the damaged windows, and it was much drier than the bottom floor.

This is a food restaurant floor with a huge area, several thousand square meters, and you can’t see the end at a glance.

The rain was so loud that it covered up all the small movements.

Lu Qiming was worried that zombies would hide here, so he illuminated every corner with a flashlight.

When the light beam swept across a specific place, Jiang Miaomiao suddenly said:

“Do not move!”

He stopped. She walked over, took a closer look, and said pleasantly:

“There is a vending machine!”

The light is too dim, and they can’t see what is sold inside. They only know that there are many small boxes.

If it was a snack, it would make a lot of money, just in time. She didn’t have enough to eat at night.

Jiang Miaomiao tried to open the machine, but unexpectedly it was so strong that she couldn’t open it, no matter whether she bit it with her teeth or kicked it with her foot.

“Step aside.”

Suddenly Lu Qiming’s voice came from behind her, and she stepped aside, only to see that he brought a stool from nowhere and slammed it onto the machine with a bang, breaking the tempered glass outside.

“That’s amazing!”

Jiang Miaomiao praised him happily and reached out to take it.

But he blocked her hand, shined a flashlight on the machine, cleaned up the broken glass, and then picked up a box and handed it to her.

Jiang Miaomiao felt warm in her heart, feeling like a newborn kitten being cared for by a big cat.

But now the situation is exceptional. She didn’t have time to think about what was there, so she quickly opened the box.

After seeing what was inside, she was very disappointed.

Lu Qiming asked: “What is it?”

“Oh, don’t mention it, it’s lipstick.”

She thought of the logo on the outside of the machine. No wonder it looked so familiar. It was a lipstick machine that was common in the past.

The Dior 999 is in her hand. She had wanted it before and was reluctant to buy it.

Now that she finally has it, the joy it brings is not as good as a pack of Mimi Shrimp Crackers.

It would be good if it was eaten. Woo woo.

However, Lu Qiming picked up the machine, unscrewed them one by one, and handed her another one.

“This color suits you.”

Jiang Miaomiao: “…Are you kidding me?”

“Take it, go ahead and have a look.”

She had no choice but to accept it and continue walking forward with him.

They found a beverage vending machine, smashed it and took bottles of Red Bull and Assam milk tea.

Needless to say, Red Bull is a little helper to replenish physical strength. And milk tea, a high-calorie and high-sugar drink that was once disliked by people, may be life-saving for those who are in severe food shortage.

There are many restaurants on the food floor, and there must be food in the restaurant.

The fresh ones must be rotten, and some dry goods may be in the warehouse.

Seeing that there was no danger, for the time being, they searched nearby.

It turned out to be a pity that the ingredients in the warehouse and freezer were basically rotten. Some foods that are not perishable are also contaminated by the food next to them and cannot be eaten.

In a noodle restaurant, they found several packages of unopened flour. In addition, every shop has a lot of seasonings, such as oil, salt, sauce and vinegar, which are still within the expiration date.

It’s just that there is no pot or stove at hand, so it can’t be cooked for food.

Jiang Miaomiao stuffed many packets of ketchup and several bottles of chili sauce into the plastic bag, ready to lick them to satisfy her hunger when she was hungry.

The rain was still falling, and it was getting stronger, making people dizzy from the noise.

She was hungry and wet and couldn’t wait to rest.

Lu Qiming closed the store door and made a small bed out of tables, and the two curled up with a dog to sleep on it.

As the saying goes, there are thoughts during the day and dreams at night, and Jiang Miaomiao also had a dream.

The flood in the dream was like a disaster movie, chasing them like a beast.

She ran desperately; as she ran, Lu Qiming and Jiang Meimu disappeared, leaving her alone.

In the end, she was too tired to lift her feet. When she looked back, the water level was tens of meters higher than her head.

Opening her eyes, he found that it was already dawn.

But the rain is still falling, there is no sun, and it is gloomy.

She didn’t know where he had gone and was limping in from the door when he saw her sitting on the table as if her soul had come out of her body.

“Are you awake? Are you hungry?”

Jiang Miaomiao clutched her abdomen, unable to speak.

She hadn’t been to the toilet since yesterday and was so anxious that she couldn’t hold back her urine.

Lu Qiming saw her embarrassment and said:

“There is a public toilet next to it, let me take you there.”

She jumped off quickly.

After that, she followed him to the toilet, and after solving the “flood” in her body, she came out relaxed.

“Did you come to the toilet recently? You didn’t wake me up, I can help you.”

Lu Qiming shook his head.

“I went looking for breakfast.”

“Did you find any?”


“Hey, there are still some steamed buns left, let’s go back and eat together.”

Lu Qiming suddenly laughed, as cunning as a fox.

“I lied to you, look what it is.”

He pointed to a table by the window. Jiang Miaomiao looked intently, and the table was actually full of snacks.

“…Where did you get this?”

“Found it in the shopping mall, and there are many things you can eat.”

Lu Qiming raised his face slightly, with “Come and praise me” written all over his face.

Jiang Miaomiao had no effort at all and ran towards the snacks in ecstasy.

There are many types of snacks, including biscuits, nuts, and candied fruit.

Most importantly, there are dried pork, dried crab sticks and braised flavors.

She has been thinking about spicy duck neck and duck wings in her dreams!

The two sat on chairs by the window, watching the heavy rain and enjoying rare food.

Awakened by the scent, Jiang Meimu wagged its tail and came over to beg for food.

Its fur was wet by the water yesterday, and after one night, it has dried naturally in the shade, but the hair has become gray.

Jiang Miaomiao planned to take a bath for it later, but suddenly thought that there was no water to bathe now, and then thought that she would not be able to take a bath and wash her hair in the future, and suddenly felt that the duck neck in her mouth was not as delicious as before.

She looked at the heavy rain outside the window and sighed quietly. The rain was so heavy that she couldn’t even see the buildings next to her clearly.

The world is gray, like a world at the beginning of chaos.

Lu Qiming said: “There should be no zombies on this floor, we can stay for two days temporarily. After we finish eating, we will store the snacks in the store together, so as not to waste them.”


The two speeded up their meal, and after they were full, each drank a bottle of Red Bull and started working.

Jiang Miaomiao didn’t take a shower yesterday and didn’t wash her face or brush her teeth today, so she always felt uncomfortable.

There is water on the first floor, why don’t you…go and wash.
