Chapter 37 (2/2)
“Can you do me a favor?”
Lu Qiming was secretly sticking out his tongue. Still, when he heard this, he immediately sat up straight and rejected her seriously.
“Don’t want to.”
“…… Are you human?”
“It’s obviously not even considerate of me and taking away the meat that I have already delivered to my mouth.”
“That’s because you stole that luncheon meat from my bowl!”
“It seems that you don’t want to drink anymore, I’m going to sleep.”
After Lu Qiming finished speaking, he turned around and left. Jiang Miao Miao rushed to hug his arm, tears streaming down her face.
“Oh, I’m going to be burned, can you open it for me…please…”
He listened very happily, patted her head, and took the Coke.
“Good girl, don’t grab food from me in the future.If you eat so much, you can’t even unscrew a bottle cap. If you eat it, you will eat it for nothing. What a waste…”
Jiang Miao Miao ignored his unreasonable words and fixed her eyes on Coke.
Lu Qiming grasped the bottle’s body with his left hand and the lid with his right hand and turned it vigorously…it didn’t open.
The posture must have a problem, so try again with another hand.
He tried again but still didn’t turn away.
Jiang Miao Miao couldn’t help being disappointed, “Can you do it?”
Lu Qiming’s forehead was sweating, and he tried all the methods, even using his teeth, but he didn’t unscrew the stubborn Coke bottle.
Jiang Miap Miao waited a long time, and couldn’t wait any longer, prepared to take it back.
“Don’t open it, I’ll get a new bottle.”
Lu Qiming avoided her hand. His eyes were red. He was looking for tools everywhere as if he would not stop until he opened it.
Jiang Miao Miao was speechless, afraid he would harm them, so she hurried back to the room with Meimu in her arms.
She didn’t know whether Lu Qiming opened the Coke or not. She only knew that when they met again, there was a round red mark on his forehead, as if the bottle cap had burst.
The air conditioner was so comfortable that she didn’t want to do anything all afternoon. She just sat under the vent and enjoyed the cool breeze.
“Ah Choo – Ah Choo!”
Lu Qiming said quietly:
“Your snot sprayed on my face.”
“…Fart, you turned your back to me now.”
“Yeah, it sprayed on the wall first, then it turned 90 degrees and splashed in my face.”
He talked nonsense solemnly and ordered her, “Sit in another place.”
“Do you want to catch a cold?”
“I won’t be able to feel this again the day after tomorrow, and the cold is worth it.”
“Should I change it?” He lowered his voice.
Lu Qiming came over, ready to carry her. She patted her forehead suddenly and jumped out of bed to leave.
“Where are you going?”
Looking for a power bank again?
“I need to wash my hair.”
She ran to the bathroom without looking back.
She has liked the Dyson hair dryer for a long time and finally had the opportunity to try it today.
After Jiang Miao Miao washed her hair, she went to find the hair dryer and saw an electric curler next to it, so she brought it along.
Sitting in front of the mirror, she ironed a wool roll for herself and admired it for a long time.
The tool was handy, and she wanted to try it again. Still, Lu Qiming’s cut hair was obviously useless, so she carried Jiang Meimu in and pressed it into the bathtub.
Half an hour later, Jiang Meimu passed by the mirror with its hair all over his body. When it saw the figure inside, it howled, hid under the bed, and never came out again.
There are a lot of electrical appliances in the supermarket, and Jiang Miao Miao can’t wait to use them all while there is electricity.
The refrigerator is full of drinks, the rice cooker is cooking porridge, and the washing machine is temporarily unusable because there is no running water. The TV has no signal and cannot be watched.
What else can be used?
She went to the supermarket to rummage, found a clothes dryer, ran back and dug out all the clothes of the two of them, and ironed them seriously.
Lu Qiming went to the gym to use the treadmill and came back sweating profusely. He was about to take a shower and change clothes, but when he opened the closet, it was empty.
“Miao Miao, my room…”
He walked to the door of her bedroom, and when he saw her, his voice stopped abruptly, and he asked incomprehensibly:
“What are you doing?”
“…we don’t need to see anyone else.”
“I know, I just want to iron, I’m happy.”
She was holding one sleeve, humming while ironing, happily celebrating the New Year.
Lu Qiming leaned against the door frame and said:
“Aren’t you disappointed? We only have two days.”
“Pie falls from the sky, just open your mouth to eat it, why do you think the pie is too small?”
Lu Qiming couldn’t help laughing, walked behind her, hugged her waist, and kissed her ear.
“Miao Miao, I like you so much.”
She blushed and struggled.
“You stink so much, go take a shower.”
He picked up the T-shirt and beach pants that had been ironed very flat and walked into the bathroom with a smile.
The hot pot is delicious, but the taste is too strong, and eating it is a bit unbearable.
In the evening, the two ate shrimp and mushroom porridge served with Wujiang mustard, which was light and delicious.
After eating and drinking enough, the two lay on the bed and turned off the lights on the entire floor to avoid attracting zombies.
The moon is dark, the wind is high, and the silly dog is in the living room, which is very suitable for doing something shameful.
Lu Qiming raised his arms and tried to hug her to the side… where was she?
An answer came from the end of the bed.
“What are you doing there? Aren’t you going to sleep?”
“Go to sleep, leave me alone, I want to enjoy it until the last minute.”
Maybe, this is the last time she will turn on the air conditioner in the next ten years.
The feeling of the present must be kept firmly in mind.
Lu Qiming reluctantly climbed to her side and patted the back of her hand.
“I can not sleep.”
“Really? Then it’s time to do something serious.”
Jiang Miao Miao fled far away in an instant.
“You promised me to rest for two days.”
“You don’t want to sleep, and you don’t want to exercise. You are going to spend the night in a daze? You have to choose one.”
After weighing it for a long time, she obediently crawled back and lay down.
Lu Qiming kissed her forehead like a coaxing child. He hummed twice, closed his eyes, and fell asleep.
In the middle of the night, a figure crept out of bed, ready to go out.
With a snap, the lights came on.
Jiang Miao Miao touched the light switch with a serious face.
“Where are you going?”
“To the restroom.”
“Do you need a gun to go to the bathroom?”
She interrupted him and said flatly:
“I just wanted to ask this morning, why did you insist on sneaking out while I was sleeping in the middle of the night? Can’t you go with me during the day?”
Lu Qiming withdrew his foot in embarrassment.
“It’s dangerous outside.”
“Aren’t you in danger?”
“It’s convenient for me to move alone.”
After he finished speaking, he immediately explained: “I don’t think you are slow, but… well, you understand.”
Of course, she understands. She is just holding back.
She can’t run as fast as him, she can’t jump as high as him, and she doesn’t have as much strength as him. This is a solid fact and nothing to deny.
But the problem is…
“Can’t you just tell me before you go out?”
She woke up in the middle of the night and couldn’t find anyone, so she was so worried.
Lu Qiming lowered his eyes and said nothing.
“What are you going to do today?” she asked.
“Look for some diesel, and the generators are all found. It’s a pity that it can only be used for two days.”
“We’ll go together during the day tomorrow.”
“The sun is intense during the day, and zombies rarely come out. It’s safer than at night. I fully charged the chainsaw and carried a gun. I can protect myself in case of danger.
“If you really can’t escape, leave me alone and go by yourself. I won’t blame you. “
Lu Qiming frowned.
“Are you sure you want to go together?”
“I am sure.”
She would not have insisted on living until now if it weren’t for his repeated requests.
Now she is willing to live, but he keeps her like a pet, facing all the dangers alone. What is this called?
Even if it is a salted fish, it must turn over itself.
Lu Qiming sighed and returned to the bed.
“Okay, let’s go tomorrow.”
Jiang Miao Miao turned off the light, got into his arms, and whispered:
“You provoked me first, and no matter where you go in the future, I will never let you go.”
He smiled wryly, “You’re quite domineering.”
“That is, from now on you are my man, you are not allowed to run away, do you know that?”
She hugged his arm domineeringly and fell asleep in his arms.
The next morning, the two had breakfast and prepared to go out.
Lu Qiming checked the map cached in her mobile phone and found the nearest gas station to the building – opposite a bus stop, more than ten kilometers away from them.
The two walked on their feet and had to walk for half a day to get there.
They can’t return for lunch at noon, so they must bring water and food.
The machines at gas stations generally use electricity, and they must be useless now. They don’t know if there is a backup generator.
Even if there is, it is likely to be broken after being soaked in flood, so there is a high probability that they will have to pry open the machine to get oil.
This requires tools, such as chainsaws, hammers, and wrenches, that can be found at hand. Jiang Miao Miao found a bag and packed it, a large and heavy bag.
They each brought their own guns and didn’t wear protective clothing. Those things are useless against zombies now. The weather is hot, and it’s easy to get heatstroke if you hold them inside.
Before going out, she noticed Jiang Meimu.
The little fat man probably sensed their unusual behavior and circled uncomfortably around them.
“You can’t go out.” Jiang Miao Miao squatted in front of it and said softly: “We will come back after going out for a day. Can you stay in the hotel and look after the house? I will prepare food and water for you. Stay in the room, and don’t mess around.”
Jiang Meimu licked the tip of her nose. She laughed twice, picked it up, and went to the suite.
Lu Qiming followed with water and food.
Jiang Miao Miao carried the dog into the suite, unpacked the food and water for it, poured it into a bowl, got up, and said:
Lu Qiming nodded and walked out first.
She was about to leave the door when it suddenly slammed shut!
She quickly grabbed the doorknob and tried to turn it, but she couldn’t open it no matter what.
Apparently, the door had been locked from the outside.
Lu Qiming’s voice came in through the door.
“Sorry, I thought about it, it’s safer for you to stay here. I can go alone to find the diesel, and wait for me to come back.”
“Lu Qiming! Lu Qiming!”
She yelled, but the other party didn’t answer, and the footsteps gradually faded away.
The air conditioner was still blowing away the stuffy air, but it couldn’t blow away the anger in her heart.
This dishonest dog, man!
“Fatty, don’t ride on his legs from now on, just pee on his legs! Once you pee, I’ll reward you with a piece of ham!”
Jiang Meimu didn’t understand. All he knew was that she was staying with him, too, wagging her tail happily.
Jiang Miao Miao ran to the window to see how Lu Qiming would get out.
The corridors were blocked by chairs, so he needed much time to move it alone, right?
The supermarket window was opened, and a long rope was thrown out, hanging from the window on the fifteenth floor.
Lu Qiming came out from inside, put his feet on the wall, grabbed the rope firmly, closed the window, and started to descend.
The sun was so hot that Jiang Miao Miao could feel the scalding heat through the window.
In the scorching sun, he wobbled down to the fifteenth floor with the big bag of tools on his back and bent down to get in.
Not long after, a familiar figure came out from the lobby on the first floor and headed for the gas station against the scorching sun.
Jiang Miao Miao yelled, but he probably didn’t hear it and quickly disappeared.
She is so angry, She is so angry, why is he!
She sat on the floor in frustration, holding the little chubby dog in a daze.
It was noon, and she cooked noodles on the induction cooker, subconsciously cooking for two people, and felt sore after realizing it.
Where is Lu Qiming now?
Is it hot? Have you got a meal yet?
What if he encounters a lot of zombies, runs out of bullets, and the electricity of the chainsaw is also used up?
She was so worried that she lost her appetite to eat, so she leaned on the window and became a watchdog.
Come back quickly, why don’t you come back yet?
She doesn’t use electricity or an air conditioner anymore. She just wants to have him by her side.
