Chapter 40 (2/2)
Eggs are not fertilized.
If not, staying here is just waiting for it to deteriorate, and it will be wasted in vain.
Most importantly…they miss the taste of eggs.
“Eat it.” Jiang Miao Miao said, “Fried into a poached egg, half for each person.”
“There are too few poached eggs, not enough to eat.” Lu Qiming was distressed.
“Then what should I do? There is only one egg, no matter how you do it, you can’t make two.”
He touched his chin and thought seriously for a long time, “Steam with water.”
Jiang Miao Miao swallowed and went to look for a bowl.
Five minutes later, the eggs came out of the pan.
From a small egg to half a bowl of pale yellow custard.
The scent of memory spread in her nose, and her hand holding the spoon was excitedly shaking.
When he was about to start eating, Jiang Miao Miao suddenly couldn’t let go of her hand, gritted her teeth, and pushed it towards Lu Qiming.
“You can eat it, I don’t want it.”
The latter was very surprised, “Are you bewitched?”
“You did so much work before, it was very hard work, it’s yours to eat. My words…”
She wanted to not even take a bite but couldn’t bear it, so she said, “Just leave a little bit for me to taste.”
Lu Qiming sneered.
“Don’t make yourself so pitiful.”
“I was serious!”
He looked at her suspiciously, “Are you sure you want to give it to me?”
“Yeah.” She nodded, “Those who contribute a lot deserve more enjoyment.”
“Okay…” Lu Qiming sighed and picked up the bowl.
Jiang Miao Miao turned her face away to not regret her heartache.
In the next second, the bowl was handed back to her, and Lu Qiming’s crooked, smiling eyes appeared at the same time.
“Then I want to share it with you.”
“Because I love you.”
In all fairness, bird eggs are not as delicious as eggs, and the taste is a bit fishy.
But Jiang Miao Miao was happier than having eaten the full banquet. Her smile was as bright as a flower.
After eating, she was going to wash the dishes. Lu Qiming lit a cigarette, stood behind her, and said quietly:
“Speaking of which, crows seem to be scavengers. There are so many zombies outside now. In their eyes, it is probably like a buffet. They must have eaten a lot, which is why they grow so big.”
“…” Jiang Miao Miao stopped suddenly, her stomach rolling.
“The eggs it laid must have also absorbed the nutrients of the zombie meat. We eat eggs, which is equivalent to eating zombie meat.”
Jiang Miao Miao lay on the sink and retched.
Lu Qiming walked over with a smile and patted her on the back.
“Okay, okay, I’m joking. Even if they really eat zombies, they have already digested them in their stomachs.”
“Ouch…you shut up!”
Is that how he loves her?
This is clearly hate! It’s still the level of killing my father’s enemies!
Jiang Miao Miao vomited for a long time and couldn’t get it out, so she could only drink a few glasses of water and force herself not to think about it.
The next morning, the two went to the top floor with tools again and started catching birds.
During the day, five or six birds fell to eat rice, but none were crows.
Alaska and corgis can produce Alaska, but larks and crows cannot produce larks.
Blackbirds occasionally fly by in the sky, looking like Lao Bai, but they refuse to come down.
The two waited for a day but returned without success. When they went back to feed Lao Bai at night, they found something new.
It barks out the window.
The same bird call came from outside the window with a rougher voice.
Lu Qiming went to open the window. Jiang Miao Miao asked:
“What are you doing?”
He pushed away the glass and raised his eyebrows.
“The husband has come to the door, and the young couple must be reunited.”
As soon as the words fell, a black shadow flew in, circled for a while, and landed beside Lao Bai.
The new bird was a little smaller than Lao Bai and looked very agile, but his eyes were full of the guard, watching them eagerly.
Lu Qiming was about to close the window when the new bird suddenly screamed piercingly and flapped its wings as if it was about to leave.
Lao Bai yelled twice, pushing the paper cup containing rice grains toward it.
The two birds communicated for a while, incomprehensible to humans. Finally, the new bird lowered its head and started pecking at the rice.
The two left the room and closed the door.
Jiang Miao Miao breathed a sigh of relief and jokingly said:
“Unexpectedly, Lao Bai is quite attractive, and even locked in the house, a boyfriend came to find her.”
Lu Qi took a look at her.
“Crows are notoriously single-minded birds. They only have one partner in their life. If the other party dies, they will be lonely forever.”
She was surprised, “Really? How do you know?”
“This is not important, the important thing is…”
He lowered his head and stared at her intently, “Will you be as dedicated as them?”
“If one day I die or disappear, you will remember me and miss me forever. Or… find someone else who can help you right away?”
Jiang Miao Miao frowned, unable to understand why he asked such a question.
Was he worried about being abandoned? Did he get it wrong?
Obviously, judging from the strength of the two of them, she should be the one to worry about this issue no matter what.
Lu Qiming waited for a long time but didn’t get the answer he wanted. His eyes gradually became disappointed, and he turned and left.
Jiang Miao Miao chased after him and grabbed his hand firmly.
“What?” he asked a little impatiently.
She hooked his neck to make him lower his head, then stood on tiptoe and kissed him on the forehead.
Lu Qiming: “…”
She patted his head and raised the corners of her mouth to smile.
“Look, you’ve been stamped by me.”
“You didn’t even sleep, and you started talking in your sleep?”
Facing his cynicism, Jiang Miao Miao was not angry at all.
“Stop pretending. I know you don’t feel safe. Is it because of your parents’ divorce? Oh, you’re 1.9 meters tall, why are you still as fragile as a child? Come on, sister.”
Lu Qiming blushed, pushed her away, and walked forward.
She jumped up and down to block his way, sighing deliberately.
“I am very lazy. Lazy to work and lazy to start a new relationship. You have helped me so much, can you help me again? Don’t die, don’t leave, let me never have the chance to choose someone else. “
Lu Qiming curled his lips, “There is no evidence for what you say.”
“Then what should I do? Now that the Civil Affairs Bureau has no one to work with, I can’t help but get a certificate from you.”
He looked at her for a while, then suddenly lifted her on his shoulders.
“You’ve finished stamping, now it’s time for me.”
The scream was closed behind the door, and it didn’t take long before it became a moan of enjoyment.
The old and white couple are very hardworking. Within half a month of living in the house, they laid a nest of eggs.
The two ate two, and five or six remains were placed in the bird’s cardboard and cotton wool nest, and Lao Bai began to hatch.
The incubation period for crows is very short, about 16 to 20 days. That is to say, just wait another half a month, and the family will usher in a group of new young members.
It is unknown how many will be hatched, but no matter how many or how few, it is good news for them.
Lu Qiming thought that Jiang Miao Mmiao would be very happy. After all, there was going to be meat soon.
Unexpectedly, the other party was sleepy all day long, running to the toilet occasionally, and even refused his invitation at night, falling asleep.
That night, he grabbed her as she came out of the bathroom, ready to ask her to understand.
“Did you steal expired snacks again?”
He emphasized several times, don’t eat expired things and throw them all away.
But this woman was always reluctant to throw it away and hid it when he was not paying attention, as if it belonged to a hamster.
Jiang Miao Miao denied, “I don’t have one.”
“Why do you keep running to the toilet? Don’t you have diarrhea?”
“I ran to the bathroom because…because…”
She refused to continue in the middle of her speech, and Lu Qiming asked, “Why?”
“Because…” Jiang Miao Miao bit her finger anxiously, not knowing whether she should tell him or not.
Let’s say it would be embarrassing if it were a misunderstanding.
But don’t say it. This is a matter between two people, and the other party will know sooner or later.
Thinking of this, she gritted her molars and said the guess that had troubled herself for several days.
“I might be pregnant.”
Lu Qiming’s eyes widened suddenly, and he didn’t move for a long time.
She waved her hand, “Don’t be stupid, what should I do? If I have a baby at this time, I will die.”
Lu Qiming made a calm gesture, but he scratched his hair anxiously, “This… how do you know?”
She said dejectedly, “My aunt hasn’t come for more than forty days.”
She used to work every day and didn’t have time to count. Take some time off these two days, and give her a fright.
Both of them wear condoms every time, but wearing condoms is not 100% effective.
If she were really pregnant…the outcome would be unimaginable.
It’s all Lu Qiming’s fault. Why is the technique so good? She couldn’t find an excuse to refuse.
Lu Qiming asked: “How many days did you have it before?”
“It was not very regular before, sometimes more than 20 days and sometimes more than 30 days. But the situation is different.”
“What’s the difference?”
“I didn’t have sex before.”
She blurted out, and the atmosphere suddenly became awkward.
Lu Qiming bit his lip and did not speak. Jiang Miao Miao coughed twice and asked tentatively:
“Do you have experience?”
“I’m pregnant, what symptoms did you have when you were pregnant? Tell me and let me compare.”
He was very speechless, “Where do I have that function?”
“Of course you didn’t, your ex-girlfriend did. Have you ever been caught in an accident?”
She watched him for a while, then suddenly laughed.
“Are you also dating for the first time? My God, I really can’t tell haha.”
Lu Qiming rubbed his nose and said in a deep voice, “Don’t change the subject.”
She is the one who is in danger now, and she still has the heart to laugh. She is heartless.
Seeing how serious he was, Jiang Miao Miao quickly restrained her smile.
“You have no experience, and I have no experience, and now there is no hospital to go to, so I can’t even tell if I’m pregnant.”
Lu Qiming thought for a while, then walked out suddenly.
Jiang Miao Miao asked, “Where are you going? It’s night.”
“I need to find something.”
“Isn’t what you’re looking for…a pregnancy test stick?”
He didn’t speak, obviously guessing right.
She sighed: “There is no pharmacy in the building. Where can you find it? Even if there is one outside, it won’t be used after being soaked in water. I think it’s better to wait another two months. If I get a big belly, it means I’m pregnant. “
“What if you are in danger before you confirm it?”
For example, eating the wrong thing, such as wrestling or taking antipyretics for a cold.
These usually insignificant things may be fatal to a pregnant woman.
The more Lu Qiming thought about it, the more confused he became, and he smoked habitually. But his hands were all in his pockets, and he looked at her flat stomach and immediately pulled them out consciously.
“I’ll try and find it.”
“I will go with you.”
“When will you have to find it by yourself? You may not be able to find it all by dawn. Are you going to sleep yet?”
Lu Qiming looked back at her with deep eyes.
“I’ll go find it, you rest, be good.”
Jiang Miao Miao was defeated, watched him leave, and lay alone on the bed.
The moonlight was cold. She hugged the pillow and touched her stomach, which had not changed in any way, and her mind was full of thoughts.
Could there be a little life there? Is it her and Lu Qiming?
Is he male or female? What does it look like? Do you like liberal arts or science? When you grow up, do you want to be a teacher or a scientist?
Countless questions popped up in my mind, but they were all trivial.
There was only one question she didn’t dare to think about – if there was one, would it be born or not?
Lu Qiming searched for it all night and returned with an opened small box at dawn.
“It was found on an employee position, it hasn’t expired, try it.”
She nodded, took it over, and looked at it repeatedly in her hand.
Lu Qiming asked, “Why don’t you go?”
Jiang Miao Miao raised her head, “I’m a little hungry, let’s cook first.”
After speaking, she wanted to get out of bed, but he stopped her.
“You lie down, I’ll go.”
…You don’t even know if I am pregnant, but you treat her like a pregnant woman?
She went back to bed, and Lu Qiming went downstairs to cook.
The room was still air-conditioned, with bulletproof glass keeping the hot air out.
Jiang Miao Miao didn’t want to be alone, so she brushed her teeth and went down to help.
When she came to the supermarket, she saw Lu Qiming standing in front of the shelf of maternal and baby products, holding a pair of small white baby shoes in his palm.
The shoes are packaged in a transparent box, as delicate as a work of art.
He looked down, the corners of his mouth slightly raised, and there was a gentleness on his face that he had never seen before.
Does he like children very much?
Jiang Miao Miao was about to walk over, but saw him put the shoe box back on the shelf, and said softly, “I really want to see you, but now is not the time. So please, don’t torture her.”
She froze and stopped where she was.
An indescribable sour feeling spread in the bottom of her heart.
