Chapter 51 (2/2)
Lu Qiming finally revealed his true purpose and pricked up his ears expectantly.
Jiang Miao Mmiao didn’t refute. After all, she was married. It’s normal to call him by this kind of name. She is not usually a shy person.
But at this moment, her mouth seemed covered with glue, and she couldn’t utter a word no matter what.
After holding it in for a long time, her face turned red, and she couldn’t say a word.
Lu Qiming was unbelievable.
“Is that really so difficult?”
She said angrily, “Call me if you have the ability.”
“Call you a husband? I’d better call it another.”
He leaned over brazenly, put his forehead against hers, and said something very close.
The blush on Jiang Miao Miao’s face instantly spread to her ears.
Lu Qiming seemed to find something funny and called her one sentence after another, changing the tone of his voice.
“Wife, wife? Wife…”
Powerless to resist, she fled, getting up from the blanket to run.
Lu Qiming dragged her back, kissed her loudly on the forehead, and said with a smile:
“Honey, lie down, and I’ll dig out the eggs for you.”
After speaking, he let go of his hands, put on his slippers, went to the house to get a basket and a harpoon, and ran towards the south coast.
While running, he waved at her, but accidentally tripped over a stone and fell a big somersault.
Jiang Miao Miao laughed loudly, “Fool.”
Lu Qiming got up, scratched his hair in embarrassment, and quickly ran away.
Jiang Miao Miao looked at the scenery alone, thinking of the other party’s calling her, her cheeks were still hot, and the blush could not go away.
She is married.
She didn’t feel anything yesterday. She just thought it was fun.
But when he called her by that title, she clearly realized that she was no longer alone.
They are a small family who love each other and depend on each other.
Although this family may not exist for long, it is enough to exist in this world.
She was lying on the blanket, touching the small wildflowers on the grass next to her. She glanced in the direction of the coast from time to time, with the corners of her mouth always keeping an upward arc.
Lu Qiming lived up to her expectations, spent the whole afternoon digging out more than a dozen bird eggs, and caught a particularly fat seagull.
That night they plucked the seagulls, cleaned them, marinated them with seasonings, grilled them over the fire, and had a delicious meal.
Three eggs were eaten, and Jiang Miao Mmiao wiped the rest with a damp cloth.
She found a glass jar, poured half a bottle of boiled water into it, added a lot of edible salt and high-strength white wine, mixed evenly, put the clean bird eggs in, and closed the lid.
According to the impression in her memory, she only needs to wait for about a month before she can eat salted eggs.
Carrying the jar to a cool place in the kitchen, Jiang Miao Miao clapped her hands contentedly.
Lu Qiming leaned against the door frame and gave her a thumbs up.
“My wife is amazing!”
“Hmph, that is.”
Jiang Miao Miao puffed out her chest, very proud.
Lu Qiming stretched out his hand to her, “My dear wife, can we go to bed now?”
She put her hands on her hips, “I’m too tired to walk anymore, you hug me.”
He felt aggrieved, “I climbed up and down for hours in the afternoon, and I was very tired.”
Jiang Miao Miao walked upstairs by herself and passed in front of him.
Taking advantage of her unpreparedness, he hugged her horizontally and ran into the bedroom amidst exclamation.
Jiang Meimu, who was gnawing a bone in the courtyard, was a step too late and didn’t keep up. When it went upstairs to meet them, the door was closed again.
It rode for a while, holding the stairs’ handrail but felt bored, found a corner in the corridor and lay down on its stomach, snoring slightly.
Lu Qiming became addicted to digging out bird eggs and went to the shore with the basket the next morning.
With nothing to do, Jiang Miao Miao washed the sheets, quilts and pillowcases she had slept in for a long time and hung them on the clothesline in the courtyard.
Then she moved a chair and sat beside him, flipping through the picture album.
She can’t understand the book in English, but she can still flip through the picture book.
The artists’ drawing style is quite bold and rough. The men are all muscular, and the women all have big breasts and big butts.
She read a few pages and recognized a story that seemed to be about a cowboy in the West. She didn’t feel interested. When she was about to change the book, the large white color on the next page almost made her nosebleed.
This…this is the 18th Ban!
She quickly covered the picture album, looking around like a thief. Seeing that Lu Qiming hadn’t come back yet, she read on with confidence.
The sea breeze blew, and the clean sheets fluttered above her head, sending a burst of detergent fragrance.
Jiang Meimu was dozing off at her feet but suddenly raised its head, its ears were erect, and it was staring in one direction.
Jiang Miao Miao didn’t notice it until Meimu started barking, then stood up in confusion and looked in that direction.
Thanks to the size of the island, she can see the shore at a glance.
I saw a small plane landing on the empty coast at an unknown time.
The cabin door opened, and someone stepped out.
Jiang Miao Miao: “!!!”
Is someone here?!
Is it to catch them?
She put down the album, took out a weapon from the room, and went to find Lu Qiming.
But the other party was faster than her, and she ran out of the yard when he was already in front of her, blocking her way.
The visitor was tall and tall, wearing the iconic black uniform of the rescue team, with a heroic appearance. It was Yuan Mubing, whom she had met before.
Jiang Miao Miao glanced at the plane, there were clearly several men there, but they didn’t come over for some reason.
She was ready to resist, but the strange posture of the other party made her a little confused.
Yuan Mubing swept the gun in her hand and smiled.
Haven’t seen you for a long time.”
Jiang Meimu barked wildly as if it wanted to rush up and bite her.
Jiang Miao Miao knew Yuan Mubing’s strength very well, she would definitely be able to kick her pet dog to death, so she quickly hugged it and asked with a wary face:
“What are you doing here?”
“To be honest, the base has been looking for you ever since you snatched Captain Gu’s plane and left.”
“So you arrested us for that matter?”
Yuan Mubing shook her head.
“No, on the contrary, I admire you all very much. Especially Lu Qiming, in a weak state, he can subdue so many professional soldiers by himself. It’s really amazing.”
Jiang Miao Miao softened their tone when their man was praised.
“Then why did you come here?”
Yuan Mubing took her time and explained the reason for her arrival.
“Yesterday I ran into Captain Gu and learned that they had confirmed your coordinates and planned to bring people over to arrest you, but I persuaded them. I don’t think such extreme measures should be taken. After all, we still need to cooperate in the future. Work hard to put humans back in the cities.”
Jiang Miao Miao frowned, “What do you cooperate with?”
One was infected with the virus, the other was helpless, and the survivors were about the same burden.
Yuan Mubing pursed her lower lip and told her all about the virus.
She was dumbfounded.
Does Lu Qiming still have that function? Her book was a waste of time. It was never mentioned in the original novel.
Those experts had been researching for more than ten years before they developed a vaccine allowing people to return to the city with peace of mind.
Yuan Mubing said: “The speed of the city’s regression does not wait for anyone. If we go back one day late, we will have to spend ten times and a hundred times the time to build it in the future to return to the level of development before the end of the world.”
“The time now is precious, and with his joining, we hope to return to the city. Only those survivors who struggled against the wind, snow and zombies in the base can survive. “
Jiang Miao Miao looked embarrassed, “Why are you telling me this? He is the one who can help, not me.”
“He loves you, he won’t listen to us, but he will definitely listen to yours.”
Yuan Mubing looked at her with a pleading look in her usual firm eyes.
“On behalf of all survivors, please let me ask you to cooperate with the experiment, okay?”
The joining of Lu Qiming can speed up the development of vaccines and save more people. It is undoubtedly a good thing and a great good thing.
Although this is a book, everyone is a fictional character in the book.
But in this world, they are real, and no one deserves to die.
However, the appearance of Lu Qiming when he told her about his past experience is still vivid in her memory. His expression is so painful it is obvious that even the memory is torture.
He was kept in the laboratory as a guinea pig for over 20 years.
How many twenty years are there in life?
Luckily, he can survive until now. If he does it again, can he still be alive?
She wanted to save the survivor, but she wanted to save him even more.
She loves him, and love is inherently selfish.
“I can’t promise you…”
“I promise you.”
Two sentences rang out at the same time. The first sentence was from Jiang Miao Miao, and the second was from Lu Qiming.
Jiang Miao Miao turned her head and saw Lu Qiming coming back with half a basket of bird eggs, walked up to her, gently held her shoulder, and said to Yuan Mubing:
“I agree to your request.”
Jiang Miao Miao said in shock: “What nonsense are you talking about? They want to arrest you for experiments!”
“I know.” He gave her a comforting smile and looked at Yuan Mubing.
“But I also have my demands.”
The latter immediately said: “Just mention it, as long as we can do it, we will never refuse.”
“First, I have the right to refuse surgery. I’m not that great, and I’m willing to help others, but I don’t want to sacrifice myself for others.”
“Yes, if there is a surgery with a high risk factor, the experts can hold a meeting with you to discuss it in advance and ask for your opinion.”
Lu Qiming nodded and continued:
“Second, you must let her live in the base and enjoy a safe and worry-free life.”
“At present, everyone in the base has the same standard of living. The people eat whatever the officials eat. When the zombies attack, the soldiers go first. There are not enough soldiers to ask the men to volunteer, and if there are not enough men, then to go to the women.
I can’t guarantee she’ll be safe and secure, but she’ll be fine as long as I’m alive. “
Lu Qiming nodded, looked down at Jiang Miao Mmiao with gentle eyes, and said the last request.
“Third, after the end of the world, if I die, you must at least give her a living standard above the middle class, let the state cover her housing and consumption, ensure that she has no financial troubles, and enjoys the best medical treatment.”
Yuan Mubing asked with great interest:
“What if you live?”
He said confidently: “If I live, I don’t need you to provide these.”
Yuan Mubing’s eyes showed appreciation, but Jiang Miao Miao was in a hurry and couldn’t wait to speak.
Lu Qiming made a silent gesture, took her back to pack her luggage, and asked in the empty bedroom:
“What do you want to say?”
She wanted to scold him. How could he be so stupid?
But as soon as she opened her mouth, crying came out first.
“I don’t want you to be treated as a guinea pig, woo…”
Jiang Miao Miao threw herself into his arms, wishing she could take root in him.
Lu Qiming smiled and stroked her back with his right hand.
“Don’t be sad, this is our best choice, isn’t it?”
Stay on the island, or flee, the inhibitor will run out one day.
Instead of turning into a zombie at that time and completely losing hope, it is better to seize the opportunity and try it.
Now that the vaccine is out, it’s impossible for the base not to use it for him, right?
He was saving the survivors, and he was also saving himself.
Jiang Miao Miao was out of breath from crying.
“But doing experiments is dangerous…it hurts…”
“I’m not afraid, I can bear it.” He lowered his head and pressed it against her forehead, “Because you will wait for me outside, right?”
She asked with tears, “You really decided to go back?”
Lu Qiming smiled softly.
“Yes, I am no longer the bachelor who fed the whole family by myself. Now I am your husband, and I am responsible for you and our family.”
“I want to live until the end of the world and have a baby with you. We live in a beautiful villa, surrounded by mountains and rivers. If you want to go to work then go, if you don’t want to go to work, you can lie down at home.”
“At that time we will watch TV and play games, and you will teach me a lot of new games that I don’t know. I want to try the online King of Glory, become a great god, and lead you to domineeringly in the canyon. “
Jiang Miao Miao’s eyes were red, and she bit her lower lip hard.
“If you don’t do it, I won’t let you go even if I become a ghost.”
“Okay, I swear, if I don’t do those things, let me…”
He thought for a while, then slyly approached her ear and said a word in a volume that only the two of them could hear.
Jiang Miao Miao was instantly amused by him and punched him.
“Bastard! Fuck you.”
“Let’s be happy, call me husband to listen.”
“What’s an old man, old man, stinky old man.”
Jiang Miao Miao turned around to pack her luggage. When she folded the wedding dress, a few tears fell on it, so she quickly covered it with other clothes.
Now that they have decided to go back, she should go back happily, and if she looks dejected, and only let others watch jokes.
Yuan Mubing waited outside the courtyard for two hours, getting impatient, and finally saw them come out with many belongings.
She glanced a few times and frowned.
“What’s all this mess?”
“Where is the mess? They are all our good babies.”
Jiang Miao Miao introduced one by one: “This one is oyster meat, that one is scallops, and that one is kelp. This bag is French fries, next to it is ketchup, by the way, and this!”
She picked up the glass bottle and patted it.
“There are pickled bird eggs in here, aren’t there any in the base?”
“…Okay, anyway, there is space on the plane, is there anything else? Take them all away.”
Jiang Miao Miao touched Meimu, that had always been eyeing Yuan Mubing, and said with a smile:
“And this one, it has a lot of meat, don’t let others steal it and eat it.”
Yuan Mubing shrugged and called his subordinates to help him get things.
The two followed them into the plane, sat down on the chairs, and fastened their seat belts.
The plane rose slowly, and Jiang Miao Miao overlooked the island from the window.
It is so beautiful. It is the green grandmother hidden deep in the sea, Cherishing her best memory.
If there is a chance in the future, she must come back.
Booming, the plane accelerated and flew towards the base without looking back.
The flight lasted twelve hours, with a stop in the middle to refuel.
The next morning, they returned to the world of ice and snow again.
At the entrance of the huge base made of steel, Chen Hong and a group of experts were already there to greet him.
After seeing Lu Qiming, he immediately put on an isolation suit, carried him to the hospital bed, and hurriedly pushed him to the laboratory.
Jiang Miao Miao wanted to follow but was blocked back, standing alone next to a pile of luggage and a dog.
After Yuan Mubing finished speaking with the team members, she turned around and waved.
“Go, take a look at the dormitory assigned to you.”
