Chapter 42 (2/2)
Lu Qiming held his chin with one hand and nodded thoughtfully.
“Okay, what else?”
“The fourth is a god of death, which means death will not separate you. The fifth is a devil, which means your relationship is still variable, and you must always care for her. The sixth is the sun, which means that as long as you strictly abide by the above Ask, your future will be bright.”
After Jiang Miao Miao explained everything, she wiped off her sweat.
Lu Qiming smiled, “I will always remember these words.”
“Really?” She rubbed her shoulders deliberately, “I wash my clothes every day so that my shoulders are so sore. Can you come to wash them in the future?”
He shook his head, “No.”
“But you just said clearly…”
“I asked ‘how can I be with it forever,’ this is it, referring to it.”
He raised his finger and pointed aside. Jiang Miao Miao turned her head to look. Jiang Meeimu was galloping on a horse with the legs of a chair in its arms.
Lu Qiming smiled proudly.
“Don’t you think it’s you? You’re too narcissistic, tsk tsk.”
Jiang Miao Miao threw the cards into the drawer and rushed over to pinch him.
Lu Qiming hurriedly said: “The cake is already cold. Let’s spread jam.”
She had no choice but to let go of her hands and took out the cooled cake base together with him.
There are several jam flavors, strawberry, blueberry, apple, and pineapple, with different colors.
Lu Qiming started from the bottom and painted them up circle by circle.
The circle gets smaller and smaller until in the center is a ping-pong ball-sized piece of pink strawberry jam.
The whole cake looked crystal clear and extremely beautiful, even more stunning than the ones Jiang Miao Miao had bought for hundreds of dollars before.
He asked casually, “How old are you?”
She didn’t react and subconsciously replied: “21.”
Lu Qiming scooped up a spoonful of melted white chocolate and wrote 21 on it.
Jiang Miao Miao: “…what are you doing?”
He ridiculed: “I still can’t see your little heart? Don’t pretend. Happy 21st birthday.”
She froze and forgot to answer.
Lu Qiming handed the fruit knife to her and said in a low voice:
“Although you are still living like a fool at 21, I very much hope that you will continue to be so foolish. At 22, 23 years old, I will spend every birthday with you in the future.”
Jiang Miao Miao was so happy that she could not close her mouth from ear to ear, but she refused to accept the description of “fool.”
“Who is stupid? If I am stupid, can I live till now?”
Lu Qiming laughed, “Yeah, where did you get your luck? Is it true that stupid people have stupid luck?”
She was about to answer when there was a sudden noise from downstairs, which made both of them startled.
“What’s the sound? Did Lao Bai knock something down?”
Lu Qiming didn’t think so, so he took a gun and said, “I’ll go down and have a look.”
Jiang Miao Miao didn’t bother to eat the cake. She put it on the table, picked up the small chainsaw, and followed him downstairs.
The sound continued about once every few seconds. As the distance got closer, they determined it was not from the supermarket but from the fire escape.
How can this be? The fire exits had been blocked with chairs for months and never sounded.
The two stopped behind the last chair and listened with pricked ears.
But just at this moment, the voice disappeared.
The corridor was dark and quiet as if nothing had happened.
Jiang Miao Miao scratched her ears, “Could it be that we got it wrong?”
Lu Qiming didn’t speak but stared at the front seriously.
But the view is completely blocked by the chair, and they can’t see the other side.
Move the chair out of the way? Not to mention what a time-consuming and labor-intensive project it was. What if it was moved away, and the opposite side was full of zombies? Don’t you throw yourself into a trap?
He was still weighing the pros and cons. In the supermarket, the Lao Bai couple yelled. The piercing sound made Jiang Miao Miao’s heart tighten, and she grabbed his hand subconsciously.
“Go and have a look.”
Lu Qiming walked in front, letting her grab the corner of his clothes.
The two approached the birdhouse step by step, but the bird’s sound stopped again.
In the darkness, Jiang Miao Miao could almost hear her own heartbeat. The hand holding the chainsaw kept sweating, and she dared not breathe.
Lu Qiming put his ear on the door and listened for a while, and after confirming that there was no other movement, he opened the door.
The cool wind poured in, the window glass was broken, and the ground was full of debris.
Jiang Miao Mao’s scalp was numb, and she whispered, “Did something come in? Where’s Lao Bai? Lao Bai…”
She yelled a few times but did not respond, so she bravely approached the bird’s nest.
The bird’s nest is about one square meter, and it is a love nest they made for a family of six. The inside is covered with white cotton, clean and warm.
However, with the help of the faint moonlight, she clearly saw several black dots of different sizes on the cotton, which looked like blood dripping.
Other than that, nothing.
Where have all the crows gone?
There was a faint familiar rotten smell in the air, Lu Qiming said warily:
“Let’s go back first…”
Before he finished speaking, a figure crawled in from the window extremely fast, almost climbing into the room in the blink of an eye.
In the night, its eyes gleamed with bloodthirsty light.
Hearing the movement, Lu Qiming turned around, one step too late, and was bitten on the right shoulder by the other party.
The bite was so heavy that the sharp teeth sank deep into the joints, making him unable to move his entire arm, and he had to use his left hand to hold the gun.
As soon as his fingers touched the body of the gun, he heard the sound of a chainsaw in his ears.
Jiang Miao Miao held up the small chainsaw and landed on the neck of the zombie.
Flesh flew everywhere, and the zombie’s head and body were split into two. His head was still biting Lu Qiming’s shoulder, and his body fell to the ground, scratching and crawling aimlessly.
She didn’t stop, went to cut its waist again, and didn’t give up until the opponent completely lost its ability to attack.
Two more zombies climbed up outside the window. Lu Qiming had already taken out his gun, and with one gun in his hand, he quickly dealt with them.
Sticky and stinky blood and minced meat splashed all over the floor and walls, and there was a sound outside the window.
Jiang Miao Miao was close and looked out.
The light was dim, and her vision was blurred, but she could see at least dozens of zombies clinging to the wall and climbing up quickly.
Come, what she worried about has happened.
The once headless zombies learned to attack together.
Enduring the pain, Lu Qiming took off the zombie’s head on his shoulder, threw it on the ground, and stepped on it a few times,
“I’m going to find something to seal the window.”
Jiang Miao Miao stopped him forcefully, “Don’t worry about it. Let’s go back to the hotel.”
The glass in the supermarket is ordinary tempered glass, which cannot withstand it for a long time. Stay here for a second longer. The more dangerous it is.
Lu Qiming was slightly puzzled but decided to listen to her and go back to the hotel first.
The two left the room, locked the door from the outside, pushed the shelves to block the outside, and hurried back to the hotel.
Locking the door and staying in this room full of bulletproof glass, Jiang Miao Miao finally relaxed and checked his injuries.
The bite wasn’t too hard. There were only two rows of teeth marks, which was nothing compared to the injuries he had suffered before.
But it’s very deep, and the position is tricky. It’s estimated that he won’t be able to use this hand for at least half a month.
She felt distressed when she saw it and scolded him: “Why didn’t you hide then? You can dodge.”
With his skill, he won’t be bitten as long as he bends down.
Lu Qiming said, “I can’t hide.”
“If I dodge, it will bite you, right?”
Jiang Miao Miao didn’t speak, but turned around, as if to get medicine, but secretly wiped away tears.
She treated his wound When she returned with gauze and anti-inflammatory drugs. She said, “Fortunately, you won’t get infected. Otherwise, we’ll be finished. Lu Qiming, you said you would spend every birthday with me. Don’t be dishonest.”
He was sweating profusely from the pain but tried to smile for her.
“I definitely won’t. Otherwise, I will be scolded to death by you.”
“Don’t talk like that.”
While scolding him, Jiang Miao Miao bandaged his wound.
Due to the special location, it was inconvenient to wear clothes, so Lu Qiming simply took off his T-shirt and left his upper body naked.
She wrapped the bandage from his shoulder to his armpit several times and asked worriedly when she cut it off:
“You really can’t get infected, right?”
Even if he has his own antibody in his body, what if it suddenly fails?
After all, the hepatitis B vaccine has expired.
If he is infected, then she…
Jiang Miao Miao didn’t dare to think about it. She looked at the other party, hoping he would give her an affirmative answer.
Lu Qiming nodded, “I won’t.”
She threw her arms around his waist as if exhausted, sobbing in fear.
He patted her back lightly.
“Be sad. The newly raised bird was eaten by others before it had time to eat.”
Thinking of this, Jiang Miao Miao felt even more sad.
The movement below didn’t stop. Jiang Meimu stood guard by the door, turning around uneasily.
They want to see what’s out there, but it’s hard to do.
It was too dark outside the building, and the pictures on the road could not be seen.
They can’t open the windows to probe, so they can’t observe the zombies on the walls.
The door is solid, but it is the last barrier. Once it is opened, the consequences will be unimaginable.
Rather than hiding inside, it’s more like… being trapped.
Jiang Miao Miao could only judge the situation downstairs by the sound.
The glass was smashed a lot, and the zombies should have come out of the birdhouse, smelling the breath of their lives, looking up floor by floor.
How long did it take to find this place?
There are spare supplies in the suite, which are expected to last for half a month. Even if they can’t hit the door, what about half a month later?
It was already late at night, and she didn’t feel sleepy at all and didn’t dare to relax for a moment when she looked at the door.
Seeing her livid face, Lu Qiming handed her a piece of chocolate.
“Eat something, don’t bother.”
She took it and stuffed it into her mouth, reaching out for another piece.
He was surprised, “Are you starving?”
“Hungry is not too hungry. Just want to eat more.”
Maybe there will be no chance to eat it tomorrow.
Lu Qiming gave her all the chocolates in his hand, looked at the door, and thought for a while, then suddenly asked: “Do you trust me?”
Jiang Miao Miao turned her head, “What do you believe?”
“I’m going out now. Get rid of the zombies, and come back safely.”
She was speechless.
“Go to sleep if you want to dream, don’t make fun of me.”
“I’m serious.” Lu Qiming said, “I don’t know why the zombies suddenly chose to attack together, but according to the current speed of development, if we don’t solve it quickly, we will not have even more chances in the future.”
Jiang Miao Miao knew he had a point but couldn’t support his proposal.
“What can you do to solve it? You may not be able to fight when you are healthy, not to mention losing a hand.”
Lu Qiming grinned, “It’s not useless. It’s still possible to light a cigarette.”
“…” She gave him a blank look and continued to stare at the door as if her eyes could put a shield on the door.
Lu Qiming pursed his lips and said: “My idea is that we go upstairs before they come up. Then you hide in the house of the person who found the gun last time and stands by the window. I will try my best to send the zombies to the top of the building.”
There are generators and power supply systems on the roof, and I ignite them and jump down.
Before that, I will tie a rope around my waist. You have to hold on to the rope when I throw it down. Whether I can live or not depends on this step. “
Some of the zombies were blown to death, some were thrown to death, and the rest were easy to deal with.
This is the only plan that can be done right now.
Jiang Miao Miao asked: “What if the situation is urgent and the rope is thrown in the wrong direction and doesn’t land in front of me? What if they catch up to you before you ignite the generator? What if the rope breaks when I hold on tightly? What to do?”
He sighed, “Miao Miao, life is full of dangers. What we have to do is to minimize the probability, not just because of danger.”
In the past, every mission was a trip to hell.
At first, he was also afraid, especially when the bullets flew past him. He always felt that the next bullet would hit him.
Later, he gradually learned to ignore life and death and concentrate on doing the things at hand, but he lived longer than others.
This time, he believes he can succeed too.
Jiang Miao Miao lowered her head, her voice mixed with tears.
“I know, but I don’t want to. Did you forget to celebrate my birthday today? I haven’t even eaten the cake yet. Don’t go out, don’t go out… Please…”
Lu Qiming’s eyes glistened with water, and he said in a low voice:
“So I want you to believe me, I will not die, and you will not die. We are all fine.”
“I don’t want…I don’t want to!”
She hugged his waist tightly as if he would run away if she let go.
Lu Qiming extended his left hand to bring the cake and passed the knife into her hand.
“Come on, cut the cake and finish your birthday.”
“I don’t want to cut it!”
“Miao Miao, be good.”
She wanted to cry but was afraid of attracting zombies, so she could only bury her face in his clothes desperately.
The crying came out intermittently, echoing in the room.
