Chapter 53 (2/2)
“According to the regulations, we can rest for a few days every time we complete a mission. As long as you agree to join the rescue team, I can help you negotiate with the laboratory and ask them to allow you to visit Lu Qiming during your rest.”
Jiang Miao Miao was suspicious, “Are you sure you can negotiate successfully?”
“I’m 80% sure.”
She was still uneasy, hanging her eyes and hesitating.
Yuan Mubing took a step forward and said while the iron was hot:
“It doesn’t make sense for me to deceive you, and even if my negotiations fail later, or you regret it, you can quit the rescue team and return to the base to continue your current life. This does not violate the regulations of the base.”
These words greatly dispelled Jiang Miao Miao’s worries, but after all, the two did not have much contact, and they still had no bottom line in their hearts.
Yuan Mubing took the initiative to propose.
“You really don’t need to worry, I can sign a contract with you and write everything clearly. Besides……”
She quickly glanced at the man beside her, “You know my secret too, don’t you?”
Jiang Miao Miao pinched her palm, raised her head, and said:
“Okay, I’ll join.”
After waiting for a long time, Yuan Mubing finally got the answer she wanted and heaved a sigh of relief.
“Tomorrow, you don’t have to go to work in your original unit. Come directly to the rescue team’s office. This is the address.”
She took Jiang Miao Miao’s map, circled a location on it, and returned it to her.
Jiang Miao Miao glanced at the map, roughly remembered it, and asked:
“Can you get someone to inform Lu Qiming for me? Explain the situation to him clearly. I don’t want him to worry.”
Yuan Mubing was puzzled, “Why don’t you just tell him?”
Anyway, since he has no access to the outside world, she can hide it for a year or two.
She shook her head, “I don’t want to lie to him.”
“Okay, I’ll let someone do it when I get back. You have a good rest. I’ll wait for you in the office tomorrow morning.”
After Yuan Mubing finished speaking, she left, and the small dormitory became quiet.
A few minutes later, the female neighbor and Liu Lan, who had eavesdropped, knocked on the door and asked her if she wanted to join the rescue team.
Jiang Miao Miao nodded, and the two were very envious.
“The rescue team is good. They have military rations every day. Unlike us, we eat potatoes and radishes all the time. I have been craving meat for half a year.”
“Yeah, every time the supplies arrive, they are distributed to them first. So happy.”
“But it’s also a bit dangerous. After all, they often fight zombies.”
“That’s a good deal. Isn’t it a coolie to stay? Why don’t you go out and have a good time?”
The two chatted one sentence at a time, and they seemed to not leave until midnight.
Jiang Miao Miao couldn’t get the word in her mouth out and had nothing to talk about.
Sitting on the bed, hugging her legs, she began to think about Lu Qiming again.
When they left, they said that he was going to undergo an operation. Since Chen Hong was not there, it was estimated that someone else was performing the operation. Would it be dangerous?
Is the surgery done now? Did he have dinner?
She picked up her ID card and wanted to call him, but after thinking about it for a long time, she gave up.
She was afraid that she would cry and would affect his mood.
Her female neighbor chatted with Liu Lan from the south to the north and finally got sleepy, so she said goodbye and left.
Jiang Miao Miao turned off the light and lay down under the blanket, touching Jiang Meimu’s big belly, which felt so good to touch, and suddenly remembered a tricky thing.
She went to the rescue team. What should Meimu do?
It’s stupid, silly, and eats a lot. It’s impossible for the rescue team to take it on missions, right?
Jiang Miao Miao got up early the next day and called Yuan Mubing specifically for this matter.
The two discussed it, and the final result was——Jiang Meimu was fostered in the kindergarten when she was on a mission and continued to go to work to play with the children.
The kindergarten will be responsible for its three meals a day as a reward.
A colleague in the same building was about to go to work, and the principal asked her to come and pick up the dog.
At a young age, Jiang Miao Miao felt the reluctance of an old mother in advance.
“Meimu, be good, don’t bite anyone.”
She took her own comb, squatted next to this second fool who had no sense of the future, and combed its hair.
“You go to work with sister, earn money to eat, and when I rest, I will pick you up to play.”
The colleague looked at the time and urged:
“Can I go now? I’m going to miss the subway.”
Jiang Miao Miao had no choice but to put away the comb, hugged the dog’s head, and handed over the dog.
Jiang Meimu was led forward by her colleagues, and because they had known each other a few days ago, it didn’t resist.
But it looked back at every step; its eyes were full of confusion, and it didn’t understand why she didn’t follow.
When it walked tens of meters, it wanted to come back a little bit but was forcibly pulled away by colleagues.
Jiang Miao Miao’s heart was about to break seeing its stupid appearance. She stood in the corridor and looked at it for a long time. She didn’t return to her room until she could no longer see their traces.
Putting on her snowproof suit and bringing her ID card, she always felt that something was left behind when she was about to leave.
Scanning the room carefully, her eyes stopped on the ring on the corner of the table, which she took off when she washed her face in the morning and put it there carefully.
Jiang Miao Miao ran over to take off her gloves, put on her ring and then went out.
Half an hour later, she arrived at the address Yuan Mubing gave.
The iron door to the office was open, and a sign on the door said, “Fourth Rescue Team.”
At the time of work, many team members passed by her.
Most of them are strong and energetic, and they are grinning with their shoulders and backs, making her look like a wimpy chicken that has been beaten by society.
Jiang Miao Miao went in bravely and found Yuan Mubing’s office.
There were a bunch of young people playing around. She asked cautiously:
“Excuse me, is Vice Captain Yuan here?”
Everyone turned their heads and stared at her for a few seconds.
When she was so nervous that she almost turned her head and ran away, someone cried out in surprise.
“You, you, you… Are you the new member that the vice-captain mentioned?!”
Jiang Miao Miao’s body was rigidly pressed against the door frame.
“My God, the new members are like this: come on, say hello to everyone.”
A cheerful-looking girl pulled her over and stood among the crowd.
Meeting more than a dozen pairs of curious eyes, Jiang Miao Miao introduced herself.
As soon as the words fell, the team members suddenly stood up in unison and shouted towards the door:
She looked over and saw Yuan Mubing and the original hero walking in from outside.
Yuan Mubing nodded to the team members, saw her, walked over, and said:
“Already know everyone?”
She doesn’t know it yet, but the original text mostly describes the plot of Yuan Mubing and her team members dealing with zombies, so she already knows some important supporting roles. Now, she only needs to remember the faces.
Jiang Miao Miao hummed. Yuan Mubing said:
“Well, let’s have a meeting to confirm her position in the team.”
“Captain, does this person really want to stay on our team?”
One of the team members was very dissatisfied. He came to the front and said, “We are a rescue team, not acrobats. She is short and thin. What can she do? Is she holding everyone back?”
“Yeah, yeah, we all do hard work. We can’t leave anyone, just do nothing.”
Some players responded one after another.
Jiang Miao Miao was terrified of such a thing; her body tensed up after finally relaxing, and she looked at Yuan Mubing reflexively.
The latter is worthy of the heroine, quite calm.
“Just because she’s weak doesn’t mean she’s incapable.”
“What ability does she have? I just can’t see it.”
“She is very good at divination.”
“…Divination? Are you kidding me?”
The eyeballs of the team members who spoke almost popped out.
Yuan Mu said coldly: “Don’t you believe me? Jiang Miao Miao, show them something.”
Jiang Miao Miao walked up to the man, stretched out her hand, and said, “I want to see your palm prints.”
The other party looked at her with disdainful eyes and stretched out his hand.
Jiang Miao Miao looked at it pretendingly for a while, recalled his story in the original novel, and said:
“You can find your mother later.”
The man froze and looked at her in surprise.
Jiang Miao Miao ignored it and continued to show another person’s palmistry.
She tried her best to pick the ones she remembered most, and almost all the details she said matched up, shocking those people.
There was a sudden commotion in the office, and everyone crowded in front of her one after another, eager to let her do the math for themselves.
Jiang Miao Miao turned her head and looked at Yuan Mubing in embarrassment.
The latter patted the table.
“Quiet! Do you have any questions? If not, the meeting will start now.”
There is a living god in the team. Who dares to have an opinion? They wish they could please her more and let her guide me more.
The meeting lasted for an hour, and Jiang Miao Miao got to know the details of the rescue team and, at the same time, determined her task – to assist Yuan Mubing in formulating each battle plan to minimize casualties.
Similar to the existence of an ancient military division.
She still basically remembers the important plots in the novel, and it is not difficult to avoid danger.
She is afraid that her appearance will change the main plot, which will be troublesome.
She was still worried when the communicator in the office suddenly rang.
The original male protagonist answered and announced to everyone a few minutes later that a new mission was coming.
The base ran out of medical supplies, and the higher-ups selected a large third-level hospital in a certain city in the south.
They set off immediately to bring back the supplies to the hospital.
The team members have been through a lot of battles, and they immediately began to prepare when they heard the order.
Check weapons, refill ammo, and change clothing.
Jiang Miao Miao stood by and watched, very dazed.
Yuan Mubing took her to an office, gave her a set of combat uniforms and bulletproof helmets, and asked her to change into them as soon as possible.
Jiang Miao Miao changed her clothes and planned to go out.
Yuan Mubing shook her head and helped her re-tie the zipper and shoelaces.
“You must wear your clothes well. Otherwise, it will become a drag on you during the battle. I won’t give you the gun first. You will easily injure yourself if you don’t know how to use it. Then you will stay on the plane…”
“I can use a gun.”
Jiang Miao Miao said.
Yuan Mubing looked up in surprise.
“Can you use it?”
“Well, he taught me a rifle|gunner|gun.”
Having said that, she couldn’t help being a little proud.
Before meeting Lu Qiming, her only weapon was the gas tank she used to commit suicide.
Yuan Mubing nodded, took out a gun, and handed it to her.
“Use this first. Go, board the plane.”
There was an elevator next to the office, and Jiang Miao Miao thought it was for going upstairs.
After going in with the teammates, she realized that it turned out that she could directly lead to the entrance of the base and board the plane there.
She will face the zombies soon, and she is not used to Lu Qiming not being around.
The teammates next to her saw her nervousness and patted her on the shoulder.
“Don’t be afraid. God will treat beautiful people kindly.”
She smiled gratefully and gripped the gun a little tighter.
After flying for more than four hours, the plane came over the target city.
Yuan Mubing scanned the map with an instrument and began to make strategic plans.
Jiang Miao Miao walked over to have a look and suddenly found that isn’t this was the place where they were almost wiped out!
After Yuan Mubing arranged everything, she asked her.
She nodded vigorously, pointed to the map, and said:
“You must not enter from here.”
“Where should we enter then?”
She looked at it for a while, then choose another route.
The original hero’s eyes were full of doubts.
“Are you sure? There are zombies distributed there, so it’s not safe.”
“I know, but only by walking here can everyone survive.”
He was still dubious, but Yuan Mubing made a decisive decision.
“Do as she says.”
The man opened his mouth, swallowed his rebuttal, and agreed.
The plane landed on the hospital roof, and the team members went down one by one.
Jiang Miao Miao and a few others stayed on the plane to support them. Although they didn’t need to fight the zombies, they couldn’t help but feel excited when they saw the vast sea of corpses below.
After a fierce battle, none of the rescue team died.
Yuan Mubing was quite satisfied with this and asked the transport plane to return the supplies. At the same time, they found a safe place to station and prepared to continue tomorrow.
The station is on the top floor of a building. There are no beds or tents, and they sleep collectively on the floor.
Zombies might sneak attack at night, so a group of four was arranged to take turns on duty for two hours.
Jiang Miao Miao had just arrived, and everyone took good care of her and put her in the first group so that she could sleep through the night after the shift.
Two hours later, she and her team members retreated to eat the military rations and went to the bathroom. When she came back, she found that the ring was gone, and she was anxious to find it everywhere.
“Are you looking for this?”
Yuan Mubing sat on the ground with her long legs propped up, shaking the things in her hand.
Jiang Miao Miao took a closer look and ran over quickly.
“Yes, this is my ring.”
“It’s actually a ring? I thought it was a nut and almost threw it away.”
Jiang Miao Miao took it with a blushing face and cherished it on her ring finger.
She was a little hungry and thin in the base, and her ring was old, so she had to find a thread to wrap it twice when she went back.
After eating and drinking enough, she found a clean place to lie down and curled up to sleep.
In the middle of the night, someone pushed her awake.
Before she opened her eyes, a communicator was stuffed into her hand.
Yuan Mubing said: “Your man.”
The team members are all sleeping and cannot be woken up.
Jiang Miao Miao returned to the plane with the communicator, closed the door, straightened her hair and clothes, and then raised the communicator.
On the screen was Lu Qiming’s face. He glanced at her twice and laughed so hard that he could hardly breathe.
“Why don’t you turn on the light? I can only see your teeth.”
There is also a pair of shiny titanium alloy laser eyes.
Jiang Miaomiao hastily hissed. “Keep down. Everyone is sleeping, don’t wake them up.”
