Chapter 44 (2/2)
“I’m exhausted. How about another day?”
Jiang Miao Miao is not a sex maniac after all. Seeing that he was like this, she had to give up.
Seeing that he had escaped a catastrophe, Lu Qiming got out of bed, found a new long-sleeved sweater, and put it on, covering every inch of his skin tightly.
After returning to the bed, he kept a distance of more than half a meter from her.
Jiang Miao Miao suspected that Lu Qiming was ill.
Since he will not be infected by the virus, it is highly probable that it will cause other inflammations.
Ever since he was bitten by the zombies, he has been sluggish all day. He has no energy to do anything, obviously affected by inflammation.
Sufficient nutrition is needed to heal an injury, and it is undoubtedly not enough for them to eat biscuits every day, so she has to find another way to supplement him.
After getting up the next day, she didn’t wake Lu Qiming and went to the kitchen alone.
She lit a fire to boil water, made a big cup of powdered milk for him, brought it to the bedside, and called him.
“Wake up, wake up.”
Lu Qiming fell into a deep sleep, hummed twice, and didn’t open his eyes.
The powdered milk was too hot, so she put it on the bedside table and reached out to push him.
He suddenly grabbed her hand, opened his mouth, and bit it.
Jiang Miao Miao was frightened by him, screamed, and pulled her hands away desperately.
Lu Qiming opened his eyes, looked at her, and at the hand that had been stuffed to his mouth, quickly let go, shrank back into the quilt, and explained embarrassingly.
“I thought it was a zombie.”
“If you thought it was a zombie and You couldn’t bite it, it’s so dirty.”
She clutched her hands with lingering fear.
He nodded, “Well, I will definitely pay attention next time.”
“Come on, drink this glass of milk.”
Jiang Miao Miao picked up the cup and handed it over. Lu Qiming felt nauseous when he smelled it, but he didn’t want to worry her, so he swallowed it all.
Returning the cup to her, he said, “I’m a little tired today. I want to…”
Before he finished speaking, he threw himself on the edge of the bed, lying on the edge of the bed, and vomited.
The glass of milk he drank just now was all spat out, mixed with some gray-green gastric juice.
Jiang Miao Miao stood beside her and was splashed all over before she could dodge in time.
Lu Qiming threw up until his whole body weakened and raised his head in embarrassment.
“I’m sorry, or else you go out first and don’t come in these two days…”
She cried and hugged him.
“What nonsense are you talking about? Should I go out and ignore you? I’m not that kind of person! You lie down, and I’ll pour water to rinse your mouth.”
She ran out in a hurry, and when she came back, she had a water glass in her hand, a mop, and a rag.
Jiang Miao Miao helped him rinse his mouth first, wiped his face clean, mopped the floor, wiped off the milk splashed on the mattress and the bedside table, and went back and forth several times before dealing with the stains on his body.
Looking at her, Lu Qiming lay weakly on the bed, obviously moved to death, but just wanted to rush over and bite her hard.
His teeth can easily break open her tender skin, the fresh blood flowing in her body must taste very sweet…
Lu Qiming shivered, pinched his palms hard, and forced himself not to continue thinking.
Jiang Miao Mmiao changed her clothes and came out, sitting on the edge of the bed, looking worried at his face.
“Are you feeling particularly uncomfortable? Take some more medicine.”
He shook his head, looking at her intently.
“You are so pretty.”
Jiang Miao Miao’s cheeks were slightly red.
“You are almost dying of illness and still say such deceitful words.”
“I didn’t lie to you.” He smiled bleakly, “I really want to see you like this forever.”
Why isn’t she?
In the past, if a person had food, drink, and a computer, he would feel bored.
But after meeting her, even if you don’t do anything, look at each other like this, it won’t be boring for a long time.
Lu Qiming’s lips were very pale, with no blood at all.
She bent down to kiss him, and the roar of the plane came from outside the window.
Jiang Miao Miao turned her head and glanced, and said pleasantly:
“They are coming!”
There must be a doctor in the base. He can receive treatment if she finds a way to prove that Lu Qiming is not infected.
She couldn’t wait to pack her things, called the dog, and wanted to take Lu Qiming to the roof to meet those people.
The other party suddenly reached under the pillow, took out the mini pistol, and held it against his head.
She was suddenly stunned carrying the big and small bags.
“What are you doing?”
“Miao Miao, I’m sorry.”
Lu Qiming said: “I really want to go with you, but I can’t drag you down. They won’t take you to the base if I’m here, so I’ll stay, and you can go by yourself.”
Jiang Miao Miao’s tone turned cold, “Are you threatening me?”
“It’s not a threat. It’s a request.”
He tried very hard to smile and make a good impression on her, but it was uglier than crying.
“This is the last request in my life. I beg you to go to the base with them, live without me, realize those dreams I haven’t had time to fulfill, replace me…”
He didn’t have the strength to go on, and the rest of his words turned into eyes as light as clouds of smoke, and his attachment fell all over her.
Only then did Jiang Miao Miao realize that his palm was cut and bleeding.
The blood seemed a little dense, and it slowly slid down the wrist, staining the cuffs of the sweater red.
Footsteps were heard upstairs, and Lu Qiming urged: “Let’s go, go quickly.”
“I will hate you forever.”
Jiang Miao Miao wiped her eyes vigorously, hugged the dog in one hand, and carried a bag full of food in the other, turned and walked out resolutely.
The door slammed shut, venting her intense anger.
Lu Qiming waited for a while, and when he saw that she hadn’t come back, he breathed a sigh of relief, put down his gun, and stared blankly in the direction she left.
She is so good. As long as she goes to a safe place, she will live well, even without him by her side.
She’ll have new friends, a new home, a new job, and even… a new boyfriend.
She is a seed in the crevices of the stone. As long as she is given a little sunshine and rain, she can germinate, grow, and be covered with greenery.
No matter how boring life is, she will live it to life.
As for him…
Lu Qiming never regretted being a mercenary. Even when he was shot, he thought about recovering quickly so that he could continue working after healing his injuries.
But now he regrets it very much.
If only he, like his classmates, hadn’t encountered those things, ordinarily finished college, became a coach in an ordinary way, and then met her in an ordinary way, how great it would be.
The room was terribly quiet, and he hid under the covers, closed his eyes, and pretended she was still lying beside her.
When she wakes up, she will hug him coquettishly, and she won’t get up until he kisses her.
Jiang Miao Miao met someone who came to rescue them on the twenty-seventh floor.
There are not too many people, four or five, all men, with complete equipment.
The leader is a middle-aged man, tall, wearing a bulletproof vest. His skills are good at first glance, his face faintly reveals the handsomeness of his youth, and his eyes are deep that only people of this age can have.
The subordinates also saw her, and their first reaction was to raise their guns.
Jiang Miao Miao stood there motionless.
The middle-aged man looked closer and asked, “Did you make the balloon outside the building?”
She was expressionless, “Yes.”
“Who are you?”
“How do ordinary people know that abbreviation?”
“The Internet is so developed. Do I know that some messy things are strange?”
Jiang Miao Miao was impatient and even wanted to scold them away.
“Are you willing to rescue me to the base? If you don’t want to, forget it.”
Middle-aged man: “…we must at least know who we are saving.”
She recited it like reading a book.
“My name is Jiang Miao Miao. I am 21 years old. I was a college student before the zombies appeared. Because I had some food on hand then, I didn’t evacuate with everyone, and I have lived in this city since then. Until recently, the zombies became more powerful, and the supplies were scarce. It’s almost used up, and I can’t live.”
The middle-aged man looked suspicious, “You are just an ordinary college student, but you have lived alone in a city full of zombies for half a year? This is impossible.”
“In the beginning, there were a lot of zombies, but after the flood, they all left.”
“Yes, but they came back stronger.”
The middle-aged man has keen eyesight as if he can see through her lies.
“Since we are here, it means we are willing to save you, but only if you confess everything.”
Jiang Miao Mmiao looked at him for a while, then suddenly lost her temper.
“Forget it. You go. I won’t go.”
She didn’t want to contact strangers in the base, and she didn’t want to let Lu Qiming stay here alone, waiting to die.
He is too sick to get out of bed. Who will cook for him when he is hungry? Who will pour water for him when he is thirsty?
The thought of him dying alone in this building made her feel so sad that her heart would break.
The middle-aged man said it in a word.
“Do you still have a companion? Why isn’t he here?”
Jiang Miao Miao became alert, glanced at the cold weapons in their hands, and shook her head.
“No, it’s just me.”
“Why don’t you tell the truth? What are you afraid of? Don’t want us to find him?”
The other party’s guess was terribly accurate, and he approached step by step, and the powerful aura made her breathless.
“Little girl, we have been flying for nearly seven hours to rescue you. Do you know how much fuel it will cost? Do you know how much danger we are facing? You shouldn’t hide it from the situation and reason. Say, where is he?”
Suppose Jiang Miao Mmiao hadn’t experienced the apocalypse for half a year and had exercised her endurance. In that case, she might have been answered directly by him.
The other party really has a trick, but her half-year hardship was not in vain.
She backed away, thinking of what excuse to use to get them back so she could stay and die with Lu Qiming. She suddenly felt very familiar when she glanced at the medal on his collar.
The medal is pink, with Hellokitty’s head printed on it, which is out of tune with his appearance. It is obviously not issued by the government or the army, more like a little girl’s toy.
In the original novel, only one person would wear it.
That is Gu Changzhou.
The medal is the first and only gift given to him by his daughter to praise him for being a good father.
When Jiang Miao Miao discovered this secret, she was shocked and asked tentatively:
“May I know your name?”
The middle-aged man said: “My surname is Gu, Gu Changzhou. I used to be the chairman of the Changzhou Security Company. Now I am the deputy staff officer of the Sixth Corps of the Huaxia District Survivor Base and the captain of the Changzhou Commando.”
Jiang Miao Miao: …It really is him!
The characters seen in the book are now standing in front of her alive.
Although he looked strange and she had never seen him before, she even knew what color underwear he liked to wear, and she was even more clear about his character and goals.
This feeling was so strange that she felt like seeing a long-lost relative.
Gu Changzhou is scheming, but he is by no means a bad person.
In the original novel, he contributed greatly to the return of human beings to the city. In the end, he even sacrifices his own life to save the heroine.
Maybe…she could trust him?
Gu Changzhou observed her expression. He couldn’t understand it and said calmly:
“I can assure you that I can provide security for you and your friends. So, tell me.”
Jiang Miao Miao pursed her lips and weighed for a long time, then turned around and said:
Gu Changzhou winked at his subordinates and followed her.
A group of people came to the hotel led by Jiang Miao Miao.
Before opening the door, she specifically said:
“We’re just ordinary people, we don’t have any abilities, and we won’t pose a threat to you. I will be very grateful if you are willing to rescue me. But if you don’t want to, please don’t affect us and leave directly, okay?”
Gu Changzhou said: “Don’t worry, we are a regular army and will not harm civilians for no reason.”
Jiang Miao Miao nodded and opened the door.
Hearing the voice, Lu Qiming asked through the door: “What are you doing back? I told you to leave me alone.”
She went in, put down the dog, and opened the door.
Lu Qiming saw her and the people behind her.
The four eyes met, his heart sank suddenly, and he calmly grabbed the pistol under the quilt.
Gu Changzhou frowned suspiciously.
“Did I meet you somewhere?”
