Chapter 49 (1/2)
The island covers an area of 16 square kilometers, and it only takes a few hours to walk around from south to north.
The island is surrounded by the sea, and there is a hill on the west side.
On one side of the mountain is cultivated land for growing potatoes and tomatoes, and on the other side is a small freshwater lake. On this side of the lake is the residence of the locals.
More than one hundred houses are gathered together to form a small village with streets in the middle.
On both sides of the street are hospitals, schools, restaurants, bars, shops, hotels, churches, museums, etc., all kinds of small places with completely important facilities.
The residents were all brought in by the British government in the last century, so the building retains a strong English country style.
Most of them are built with logs and masonry, simple and natural, and integrated with the environment.
The furniture in the house is made of simple and elegant walnut wood, decorated with floral, stripes, and Scottish patterns, which looks full of vitality and fun.
The scenery of this island is already beautiful. With so many beautiful buildings, it must be a good place for leisure and vacation before the zombie apocalypse happens.
It’s a pity that Jiang Miao Miao came at an untimely time, and the peaceful atmosphere on the island was broken by the virus.
The hospital’s white walls, the restaurant’s walnut tables, and the store’s floral plaid are all spattered with blood, which has condensed into the black for a long time, terrifying and dazzling.
Fortunately, they spent half a day patrolling the island and found no fish that slipped through the net.
No one, not even a living thing, was on the island but them.
Because the cattle, sheep, chickens, and ducks were raised in captivity before, the wild animals and insects on the island were all found and devoured by the army of zombies who could not leave the island.
The sunny and beautiful island is covered with blood, there are no living people, and the harbor is full of broken limbs and arms. It is really an excellent place to shoot horror movies.
The more Jiang Miao Miao thought about it, the more creepy she felt, and goosebumps all over her body.
Lu Qiming put down his gun, found several barrels of cooking oil from the back kitchen of the restaurant, and walked towards the shore.
Seeing this, Jiang Miao Miao also moved a bucket and followed him.
After arriving, Lu Qiming poured oil on the broken corpse, trying to spread it evenly, and then took out the lighter.
“Are you going to burn them?” she asked.
“Decomposing corpses are prone to produce bacteria and cause plagues. It is safer to burn them and avoid polluting air and water sources.”
“Okay, you burn it.”
Jiang Miao Miao didn’t want to look at it or go back to the ghostly street, so she walked a little to the side and stood at a distance with the dog in her arms.
Lu Qiming ignited the corpse, and with the help of cooking oil and sea breeze, the flames shot up high and burned with crackling noises.
The air was filled with the smell of burnt protein, masking the original stench.
If you don’t think about what those things are, they are actually quite fragrant, like barbecue.
With her back to the flames, Jiang Miao Miao looked towards the house ahead, wondering where to live.
It is obviously too troublesome to build a new one by yourself, but with so many houses, how to choose?
The fire burned for three or four hours before extinguishing, and the shore was pitch black.
Lu Qiming didn’t care about it, anyway. When the tide was high, the seawater would naturally wash it away.
He walked behind Jiang Miao Miao, who was still struggling with the residence and didn’t notice his arrival.
Looking at her tangled face, he suddenly wanted to scare her, imitating the zombie’s appearance, and rushed towards her back.
Jiang Miao Miao was really frightened, screaming through the sky. She picked up the dog, turned around, and threw it at him, using Jiang Meimu’s fat ass to smash him, who was nearly 1.9 meters tall, so helpless to fight back.
Jiang Meimu was the first to recognize his smell and yelled.
She belatedly saw his face clearly, panting from exhaustion.
“Why are you? I thought…”
Lu Qiming didn’t know whether to laugh or cry, “I wanted to scare you, but instead, I was so scared.”
It’s so ferocious that zombies are scared when they see it.
She suddenly realized and said with her hands on her hips:
“Okay, so you wanted to scare me. You deserve it! Go Meimu and bite him twice.”
Jiang Meimu didn’t bite anyone and stood between the two of them, wagging its tail, impatient to go to his new home.
After a busy day, the setting sun slanted to the west, and the golden-red sunset glow reddened the sky and the sea, and even the air was faintly red.
They are like Adam and Eve in the Garden of Eden, with no one else but each other.
Lu Qiming rubbed his sore nose and hooked her shoulder.
“Let’s go, go home!”
Two people and one dog walked to the house and picked it up inside.
The structure of the house is basically the same. It is a small two-story building with two or three bedrooms, a living room, a kitchen, and a bathroom.
After looking at many houses, Jiang Miao Miao chose a house next to the restaurant.
The reason is simple. The carpet in that house looks beautiful, embroidered with small pink flowers, and it feels like stepping into a rose garden.
And the blood is relatively small and easy to clean.
It was night, the island’s electrical system was damaged, and there were no lights.
So they did nothing else for the time being. They took out a few bags of military rations to fill their stomachs, washed up casually, and got ready to sleep.
There are three bedrooms in this house, one downstairs and two upstairs.
Jiang Miao Miao stood under the wooden stairs and asked, “How do we sleep?”
Lu Qiming was puzzled, “How to sleep?”
“That’s right, one room or one room for each other. Although it’s a bit scary to go to a new place, if you want to sleep by yourself, I don’t mind.”
Lu Qiming nodded thoughtfully, carried her on his shoulder without saying a word, and went straight to the master bedroom on the second floor.
Jiang Meimu followed and was about to enter the room.
The door closed against its nose, keeping it out.
It stood alone outside the door, its tail motionless, and soon heard the sound of frolicking inside, eyes full of longing, and scratched the door with its paws.
It’s a pity that the door still didn’t open. After standing for a long time, it was a little bored, so it turned around and found a corner to lie down and curl up in a ball.
In the room, Jiang Miao Miao struggled to crawl out from under Lu Qiming’s body.
“Get out of the way. You are so heavy. You are crushing me to death.”
The latter asked: “Are you talking about sleeping separately?”
“Didn’t you insist on sleeping in two rooms before? Only you are allowed to mention it, and I am not allowed to mention it?”
Lu Qiming plausibly said, “The past is the past, and the present is the present.”
“What’s the difference?”
“The difference is…”
He leaned closer to her, smiling, with light in his eyes.
“I can’t live without you anymore.”
Jiang Miao Miao’s cheeks became hot, and she pushed him away and sat up.
“I’ll take a look at Meimu, it’s afraid to sleep alone, so I have to let it in.”
Lu Qiming stretched out his long arms, pulled her back to her original position, and hugged her domineeringly.
“Don’t go. I’m also afraid of sleeping alone, I will cry if you leave.”
“Cry, cry if you can.”
The little old man, who is almost fifty years old, still acts like a baby. He is not ashamed!
He really covered his face and wept, rolling all over the bed. His legs were so long that the pillows were thrown off.
“Wooooow, Miao Miao loves dogs and doesn’t love me. I’m so sad…”
Lu Qiming rolled around, returned to her side, put his chin on her chest, blinked, and said:
“You must comfort me, or I won’t get up.”
“I won’t eat, I won’t drink, I won’t sleep.”
“If you don’t speak, I’ll pluck that dog’s fur and turn it into a bald donkey.”
Jiang Miao Miao couldn’t bear it anymore, “To be honest, did they inject you with Mycobacterium tuberculosis?”
“Give you meningitis.”
Become a retard.
Lu Qiming looked at her angrily, like a puffer fish.
She chuckled, ruffled his hair, and stretched her right hand to his waist.
Lu Qiming held down his waistband warily.
“What are you up to?”
“You won’t let me go out, and I can’t sleep, so do something else.”
His body has completely recovered. The two of them are full of food and drink, full of energy, and the environment is safe. It is most suitable for doing something shameful.
Jiang Miao Miao thought it was logical, but Lu Qiming shook his head.
She looked worried.
“Did you really fall there?”
What to do? Where did it go? Where can I find it? How to pick it up after finding it?
Lu Qiming’s brain collapsed.
“So you want me to become a eunuch?”
“You didn’t drop?”
“Of course not!”
“Then why don’t you…”
He said seriously, “I’m afraid I’ll infect you.”
Jiang Miao Miao thought about it and realized that it was really possible.
In the original novel, human beings are infected by contact with zombie saliva. Still, the number is very small and insignificant.
There should be no infection due to sexual contact. After all, with the appearance of zombies, except for necrophilia, normal people can’t do it.
But now Lu Qiming is using a vaccine to suppress the virus activity, and he is still infected, which is equivalent to a zombie.
If they were in close contact, it might really infect her.
There are still vaccines in hand, but there are only nine in total, and Lu Qiming is not enough for one person. If she adds another one, it will be more troublesome.
She finally escaped but couldn’t do anything, alas.
Thinking of this, she couldn’t help but sigh.
Lu Qiming kissed her on the cheek, “I’m sorry.”
“It’s okay.” She withdrew her hand and hugged him quietly, “Go to sleep.”
She has been tired all day and still has much to do tomorrow.
There are two kinds of drugs in Lu Qiming’s body to fight, which consumes a lot of energy. After hearing this, he closed his eyes and fell asleep not long after.
Jiang Miao Miao couldn’t sleep, and when he fell asleep, she quietly opened the door and went out, bringing Jiang Meimu in with her.
The chubby dog curled into a plush cushion under the bed, finally feeling at ease.
Jiang Miao Miao was lying on the bed with one foot on Lu Qiming and the other on the dog like a female emperor hugging left and right, happy and satisfied.
The night on the island is very quiet, with only the sound of waves beating against the reef.
The first night is over quickly.
In the early morning, sunlight came in from the window, passed through the floral lace curtains, and fell on Jiang Miao Miao’s face.
She opened her eyes and looked at the strange room in a daze for a long time before remembering that they had left the icy and snowy refuge and had come to a safe island.
Huh, that’s great.
Jiang Miao Miao took a deep breath, stretched her waist, hugged the pillow, and wanted to sleep for a while.
The person around her also woke up, crawled over, and kissed the tip of her nose.
She waved softly.
“Don’t make trouble. It’s dirty. You didn’t brush your teeth.”
“I don’t dislike it.”
“I detest it.”
The next second, Lu Qiming blew on her nose.
Jiang Miao Miao was so convinced that she covered her face with a pillow, and her voice came from underneath.
“Go for a run if you have too much energy, and come back after ten or eight laps. Don’t bother me, okay?”
She wore an oversized T-shirt she found out of the closet last night, without pants.
When she raised her hand, her clothes shrank up, revealing her white legs and slender waist.
The panties were pale pink cotton with a lace trim, which looked lovely.
Lu Qiming pinched her waist with an annoying expression.
“You’re so skinny.”
Obviously, everyone eats about the same amount, but she doesn’t gain weight, so he doesn’t know where the consumption goes.
Jiang Miao Miao pulled down her clothes and hummed, “Rogue.”
“Is this a hooligan? Come, let me touch you.”
Lu Qiming grabbed her hand and stuffed it into his clothes.
The fingertips touch the smooth and healthy skin, the muscles are full of elasticity, and the touch is fascinating.
Jiang Miao Miao couldn’t help removing the pillow and opened her eyes to look at him.
He smiled slightly, took off his shirt, showed her his almost perfect body, raised his chin, and said generously:
“Please feel free to play hooligans on me.”
So arrogant, do you think she would dare not?
If you can’t eat it, then touch it.
Jiang Miao Miao came down the mountain with a tiger, rushed over, and pressed him on the quilt. When she was about to put her hands up and down, there was a sound of gasping above her head.
The two looked up in doubt. Jiang Meimu was lying on the bedside watching them, the dog’s mouth showed a brilliant arc, and the white fur all over its body shone in the sun.
Lu Qiming rolled his eyes.
Jiang Miao Miao let him go and ran to pamper her pet dog.
“Meimu, you’re awake. Good morning.”
Jiang Meimu licked her over her face, but she didn’t dislike it at all and laughed so hard that her branches trembled.
Lu Qiming compared his treatment, extremely indignant, put on his clothes without complaint, and went downstairs.
There used to be a running water system on the island, which pumped water from the lake to filter it and then sent it to the houses.
But the system was broken, and water wouldn’t come from the taps.
So Lu Qiming took two buckets and fetched water from the lake.
Many pieces of furniture in the house were covered with dust, so he found a rag and a mop and began to do the cleaning.
After over an hour, he finished the living room and kitchen and was about to clean the stairs.
Jiang Miao Miao yawned and was stunned when she saw him.
“You’ve already started working? I thought you were really running. Why didn’t you call me?”
Lu Qiming said, “Who knows how to make pigs work?”
“…fuck you, give me a rag.”
He shook his head.
“If you have nothing to do, go and make breakfast, and I’ll finish it right away.”
Jiang Miao Miao patted the dog’s head, “Meimu, let’s cook.”
One person and one dog ran to the kitchen. Lu Qiming looked at her happy back and felt warm in his heart.
The kitchen has pots and stoves, and the fuel for the stoves comes from the unified distribution of gas on the island.
Since the gas pipeline is buried underground, it is still usable, and there is a fire when it is opened.
The cabinet has many seasonings, olive oil, black pepper, salt, etc., which have a long shelf life and can be used normally.
Jiang Miao Miao dug out several bags of flour and a sack of potatoes from the cabinet.
The potatoes have all sprouted, and the leaves are bigger than spinach and inedible.
