Chapter 48 (1/2)
“I want Aunt towel and underwear. It is best to find two pairs of clothes. Otherwise… get some water. “
Lu Qiming nodded, opened the car door, and ran down. He walked briskly and ran a long distance in a few seconds. It seemed that his body was really fine.
Jiang Miao Miao was sitting in the co-pilot’s seat, pointing a gun at his back.
She can also help if zombies attack him.
The carriage was locked, and Jiang Meimu, who was sitting alone in the back row, felt uneasy and grabbed her shoulders with its claws.
“Hush, don’t make noise. We will have a new home soon.”
She stroked the dog’s head reassuringly and continued to stare at the supermarket gate.
A few minutes later, a familiar figure appeared in the field of vision, which made her breathe a sigh of relief.
Jiang Miao Miao opened the car door to greet him and waved to him.
But before she put her hand down, out of the corner of her eye, she caught a glimpse of several figures jumping out of the building behind him and rushing towards his back.
She quickly took the gun, and as soon as she raised her head, she heard a few bangs, and the zombie had been headshot.
Two plastic bags were thrown in. Lu Qiming got into the car and closed the door panting.
“Look what’s missing.”
Jiang Miao Miao flipped through the bag, recalling his skills, and couldn’t help but click her tongue.
“Are you so powerful because of the injection of drugs?”
He reacted so fast and ran so fast that he beat Yao Ming and Liu Xiang.
(Yáo Míng (1980-), retired Chinese basketball player, Liu Xiang (1983-), Chinese gold-medal hurdler)
Lu Qiming was drinking water and was displeased when he heard the words.
“Nonsense, I’m already good.”
“You ran so fast before you were taken away for experiments? I don’t believe it.”
“Of course, when I came out of my mother’s womb, I ran out. If you don’t believe me, ask the nurse who was chasing me.”
“…you lied to ghosts!”
He tapped her on the head with a grin.
“Ready? We have to go.”
Zombies will gather when they smell their bodies. A small number is fine, but a large number is troublesome.
Two fists are hard to beat four hands. No matter how rich his combat experience is, he can’t win hundreds of enemies.
Aunt towel √
No clothes, forget it.
Jiang Miao Miao threw the bag to the back row and waved her small fist.
The SUVs were on the road for hours, leaving the city where they landed and heading to the next smaller city.
The car is out of gas, but it doesn’t matter. The streets are full of unattended vehicles, which are resources at their fingertips.
Finding the ones that can still be driven from countless scrap cars takes a little time.
The two changed to a new car and continued to drive forward.
Occasionally encounter zombies, but they cannot keep up with their speed and are left far behind.
Lu Qiming drove for almost ten hours straight but was still in good spirits.
Jiang Miao Miao was afraid of a car accident, so she suggested, “How about we take a break?”
He refused, “No, the zombies will follow, and I’m afraid we won’t be able to escape.”
“But you have to sleep anyway. Aren’t you tired after driving for so long?”
He thought for a while, then looked up at her.
“Do you want to try it?”
“Me?” She pointed to her nose, “I don’t know how to drive.”
“It’s very simple. You can drive with your hands and feet. Now there are no traffic lights, no need to obey traffic rules, and no traffic police chasing you to fine you. So, come with peace of mind.”
She was encouraged and itched.
Lu Qiming stopped the car, exchanged places with her, and taught her simply.
“Turn the key first. Start the engine. Then step on the clutch, release the handbrake…step on the gas pedal, yes, that’s it, and turn the steering wheel for the rest.”
After he finished speaking, he adjusted the passenger seat and lay down to sleep.
Jiang Miao Miao was stiff all over, grabbed the steering wheel and shouted:
“Hey! Don’t lie down. Look at me! Shall I turn? Where are we going?”
He covered his eyes with the back of his hand and said leisurely:
“Let’s go, let’s drive, follow this road to the end, and we will get to where we should be.”
After saying this sentence, he didn’t speak anymore, his breathing was steady, and he seemed to have fallen asleep.
Jiang Miao Miao was holding the steering wheel with both hands, but she didn’t know where to go, like a headless chicken.
The road in front of her was endless. She tried her best to keep going straight and drove forward.
She just felt nervous at first, but after a long time, she actually figured out some fun.
The road is straight, and there are open fields on both sides. She doesn’t need to worry about bumping into things and can step on the accelerator as much as she wants.
As the speed increases, so does the adrenaline.
She imagined she was a famous car goddess, driving her car on the track and enjoying the thrill of speed and passion.
What’s the name of a particularly cool move?
Drift? Yes, it is drifting.
She’ll have to try it when she gets a chance.
Lu Qiming opened his eyes silently, seeing her excited little expression, couldn’t help smiling, and continued to sleep.
A few hours later, the two switch over.
When Lu Qiming was driving, Jiang Miao Miao went to the back seat to change her aunt’s towel, put the day’s stock in a plastic bag, and opened the car window to throw in the trash can when passing by.
The two drove for almost a week, day and night, changing seven or eight cars in the middle and passing through three or four cities.
The car on hand is almost out of gas.
Jiang Miao Miao was about to wake Lu Qiming up and get him ready to change cars but found that the other party had woken up and was looking out the window with his eyes open.
A round of red sun rose from the direction he was looking at, and at the end of his field of vision were no longer city buildings but sparkling waves.
They reached the sea.
Ahead is a port town with many small boats parked beside the pier.
There were hundreds of zombies in the town wandering aimlessly. When it heard the car’s sound, it immediately became excited and looked around for the target.
They parked the car next to a post office and turned off the engine.
Lu Qiming hid behind the window, stared out of the window, and muttered something.
“South, 30 degrees, 3, east…”
Jiang Miao Miao was confused, “What are you counting? Is this the destination?”
There are so many zombies. How do they live?
Lu Qiming made a silent gesture and continued to count. After counting, he pondered for a few seconds and lowered the window.
She was taken aback, “What are you doing?”
The zombies smelled them and quickly surrounded them.
Lu Qiming pulled the trigger and exploded the nearest zombie head, saying in a deep voice:
“Go to the pier!”
In an emergency, Jiang Miao Miao chose to believe him, started the car, stepped on the accelerator to the bottom, and rushed towards the pier.
The densely packed zombies blocked the road, and every time they were about to collide, Lu Qiming would shoot at the right time to knock them down.
Surrounded by hundreds of zombies, Jiang Miao Miao rushed out of the town’s streets and came to the pier.
When she stepped on the brakes, the nearest zombie was still twenty to thirty meters away from them.
“Go to the boat!”
Lu Qiming said in a low voice, taking things as fast as he could with his gun on his back.
Only then did Jiang Miao Miao understand his intentions, and he quickly picked up Jiang Meimu and their luggage and rushed to the boat closest to the shore with him.
It has been almost a year since anyone has walked on the shore, and it is covered with moss, which is very slippery.
She didn’t pay attention, stepped on it, and slipped. Half of her body sank into the seawater.
Zombies chased after her, rotting hands reaching for her head.
Lu Qiming stretched out his left hand, pulled her hard, and pulled her into the boat.
At the same time, the right hand holding the gun pulled the trigger, stabbing the zombie’s head to pieces.
Another shot broke the iron chains securing the boat.
Lu Qiming kicked the shore violently, and the boat receded with the waves, leaving a distance of three or four meters from the shore.
After a few plops, the zombies jumped into the water like dumplings, trying to catch them.
Lu Qiming handed the gun to Jiang Miao Miao. She asked her to protect everyone while he walked to the engine to start the boat.
Rifles are heavier than pistols, holding them like a heavy child.
Jiang Miao Miao tried to steady it and fired a shot at the zombie.
The strong recoil made her squat, but she got up immediately and continued to shoot.
There was a chugging sound behind her, and the boat started.
They got farther and farther from the shore, and the zombies lost their way after jumping into the water and gradually disappearing.
Soon the town was gone, and the sea was all around.
Jiang Miao Miao put down the gun, shook her numb hand, and asked:
“Where are we going?”
Lu Qiming said: “Just float like this to the end of the world.”
She will not be fooled. She covered her eyes and watched for a long time. When she saw a small island in the distance, she asked happily:
“Are we going there?”
He said with a smile: “I have traveled here before. The island is not big, about ten square kilometers, and there are about 300 Aborigines. It is tens of nautical miles away from the land, and the zombies outside the island cannot wade through, so it should be pretty safe.”
“You mean we’ll live there in the future? Is there food on it?”
Lu Qiming nodded, “The main food of the islanders is potatoes, fish, and shrimp in the sea. The drinking water comes from a freshwater lake in the island’s center. In addition, hospitals, schools, shops, and other facilities are complete to meet our daily needs.”
Hearing what he said, Jiang Miao Miao was so happy that she wanted to scream, urging him desperately.
“Drive the boat faster. I want to go up and have a look!”
Lu Qiming had already turned on the horsepower to the maximum, and he said mockingly:
“So anxious? Go down and push the boat.”
Jiang Miao Miao wished she would grow a fishtail, jump into the sea and push the boat to swim.
When she thought the front was an absolutely safe place with no shortage of food or drink, she was full of hope for the future.
But when the two got closer, they found things were not as simple as they imagined.
The noisy fishing boats attracted many tourists when they were tens of meters away from the island.
Hundreds of zombies surrounded the shore, opening their mouths wide like hungry wolves, eager to welcome the delicious food.
Apparently, no one here was spared either.
And because the environment is closed, there is nowhere to escape, and they have all turned into zombies.
Jiang Miao Miao frowned. Her good mood dissipated.
Lu Qiming flipped through the bag, removed three high-explosive mines, and rubbed his shoulders.
She stepped aside with Jiang Meimu in her arms and looked at him in fear.
Lu Qiming aimed in that direction, pulled away his hand, waved his arm, and threw it far away.
There was a loud bang, dazzling flames exploded on the shore, flesh and blood flew everywhere, and the shock wave even spread to the boat, causing Jiang Miao Miao’s face to ache.
Jiang Meimu was terrified, hid in her arms, and buried its head, not daring to look.
Lu Qiming threw all three of them over, and after the explosion ended, only scattered zombies remained on the shore.
He raised his gun and dealt with them one by one.
By the time the ship docked, there was no longer any threat.
The ground and the sea are full of flesh and blood of zombies, making it impossible for people to get down.
The sea breeze mixed with a stench made people’s eyes black.
Jiang Miao Miao hurriedly found something to cover her mouth and nose. Looking at the situation outside the boat, she didn’t know where to get off.
A few centimeters thick rotten meat pastes, arms, and legs flew everywhere, and she couldn’t step in even if she was blinded.
Like an emotionless transport machine, Lu Qiming jumped off the ship, stepped on those horrible pieces of meat, transported all the luggage to a clean area, and took Jiang Meimu away, leaving her alone on the boat.
Jiang Miao Miao: “…that’s so hateful! Discrimination, this is discrimination!”
She clenched her fists and tried to enlighten herself psychologically, trying to ignore those things.
Lu Qiming came back again, stood under the boat, and turned around, leaving her with his broad back.
She froze, “You want to carry me?”
“Otherwise? By the time you go ashore, it will be dark.”
She pursed her lips in embarrassment, jumped on his back, put her arms around his neck, and kissed his side cheek.
“You are so kind.”
Lu Qiming’s face burned red silently, and when he walked to the side of the luggage and put her down, he had returned to normal.
Jiang Miao Miao stepped on the clean ground with clean shoes and looked at the houses not far away, feeling very good.
She glanced at Lu Qiming’s blood-stained feet and asked:
“Do you want to wash first?”
He shook his head and continued to hold the gun.
“Patrol around the island first.”
In case any zombies are missed, they should be dealt with immediately so that the island can become their safe home.
Jiang Miao Miao agreed, also took up weapons, and took Jiang Meimu to patrol the island.
