Living in the Last Days - Chapter 19
“We’ll let you go back!!” The several burly men rolled around. But no matter what method they used, none of them were able to get rid of the vines drilling into their bodies.
“……” Xia Man sneered and ferociously kicked with her foot.
“Your foot?” Mu Wan pushed her body up, trying hard to lessen the pain. However, it was still useless. The piercing pain penetrated from her blood vessels into her entire body!
“You don’t need to know!” Xia Man sensed that Qu Zhen’s car was rapidly approaching. “I’ll let you off.”
Was what Xia Man said, but instead, she raised her hand, controlling the vines that were initially desperately drilling into her veins to berserkly tighten in a split second, until all her veins blew up.
Not only did Xia Man not move away her line of sight, she even made eye contact with Mu Wan’s dead, yet wide open eyes.
She would’ve gone out of control if the time wasn’t running out!
Xia Man retracted the vines, stretched her legs out, and sat on the ground. Seeing the familiar figure running over, Xia Man felt relieved as she closed her eyes.
Mu Wan’s Mu surname wasn’t false, but she wasn’t the daughter of a so-called provincial committee member or secretary that she claimed to be. She wasn’t from an influential family with generations of doctors either.
Each stranger who came across Mu Wan would all hear different responses, as the ability she awakened from the arrival of the apocalypse was mind-reading. Together, they formed a robbery gang, where she later became a part of the scouting team.
The so-called scouting was to figure out the strength of the other party. In the arrival of the apocalypse, nobody could guarantee if someone they ran into would be a God in the next second. Therefore, Mu Wan, who had the ability to read minds, needed to scout!
When Mu Wan saw the people in the two cars, she immediately knew that the ice-cold woman at the back was the core of the group. When she saw her, Mu Wan wanted to retreat. She knew that their abilities were among the more powerful ones, but she didn’t expect this woman to be so powerful. With just a glance, she could already feel her ability restricted in a way!
But she was immediately relieved in the next second. This woman had a fatal weakness!
That was precisely why she promptly said that her family was a medical family for generations.
According to the original plan, when she passes by her men, she would send a signal to decide whether they should rob or not. In the event that the other party has no weakness, she wouldn’t dare to give the signal.
And this weakness didn’t fail her expectations. After the woman got out of the car because of her subordinates’ actions, she managed to take control of the two in the car quite easily and seized the woman that looked weak and delicate!
And that woman’s reaction also didn’t go beyond her expectations. Just that, in a split second, a sudden change occurred. Her entire body became numb, and she could only stare helplessly as the situation went in the opposite direction what she had expected.
When she woke up, the pain in her palms was still just as impossible to neglect as it was before. Xia Man tightly pinched her hand and inhaled the cold fragrance coming from Qu Zhen’s body without opening her eyes. Her head was hurting tremendously!
“Are you feeling unwell somewhere?” When Qu Zhen felt Xia Man waking up, the first thing she did was feel Xia Man’s forehead and softly asked as she checked her. Xia Man didn’t have the slightest injury, but her brows had been tightly creased from the start, there was not a moment when they were relaxed. She didn’t know how to describe this feeling.
She had always held Xia Man in her palms, for fear that Xia Man would have even the slightest injury because of the outside world. Xia Man was sensitive. She truly cared about how other people viewed her. That was exactly why she searched high and low for the best doctors to treat her foot. As there was absolutely no chance Xia Man would like her, she also never confessed. She had always guarded Xia Man, guarded her hopeless love. But even so, Xia Man was still unhappy. Regardless of whether it was before or after the apocalypse, regardless of whether she and Xiang Yang were still together or whether they had broken up, Xia Man wasn’t happy in the slightest.
She didn’t know what she should do to make Xia Man happy!
Xia Man endured the pain and shook her head, no longer saying anything. She didn’t open her eyes whilst she was held in Qu Zhen’s embrace.
“Xia Man, what about that group of people?” Hua Xiangrong was a little baffled. That group of people felt like a bunch of monkeys coming over to play. They were obviously here to hijack the cars, only to end up taking someone away in the middle of robbing them. It clearly took them a lot of effort to take her away, only for them to end up failing and even losing their lives.
Xia Man shook her head, not a word out of her mouth.
“……” Qu Zhen glanced at Hua Xiangrong. Hua Xiangrong instantly curled her lips and made a gesture of zipping her mouth.
Qu Zhen stroked her head. “You should lie down for a while first. I’ll make you something to eat.”
She said as she prepared to lay Xia Man down and go out to make Xia Man something to eat. Because the day was already rapidly getting darker, they had to go to the roadside to look for temporary shelter in order to avoid the horde of monsters that would come out at night.
“……” Xia Man hugged Qu Zhen’s waist and opened her eyes.
Qu Zhen was momentarily stunned. She turned her head to look at Xia Man. “Are you not hungry?”
Xia Man shook her head. “Don’t go.”
This sentence was exactly what Xia Man wanted to say in her previous life. Don’t go. Don’t leave me alone.
Qu Zhen didn’t understand why Xia Man looked so sad, as if she had lost her entire world. Qu Zhen felt a burst of concealed anguish in her heart. “Okay, I won’t go!”
Qu Zhen assured as she took off her shoes and headed to bed with Xia Man in her arms, “Go to sleep. I won’t go anywhere.”
Xia Man closed her eyes in relief. Her vines had calmed down considerably. The pain had also reduced considerably!
Qu Zhen watched as Xia Man fell asleep with her brows tightly creased, and gently kissed her.
Just as she lifted her head, she saw Fa Wu’s shocked face.
Qu Zhen didn’t show any kind of embarrassment whatsoever. She only indifferently and lightly uttered a sentence. “No need to prepare dinner for me and Manman.”
Fa Wu was dragged away by Zhang Lin who came over!
“Hey, brother…” Zhang Lin didn’t know how he was supposed to say it. He knew that Fa Wu had liked their leader since they were little. But, he also knew that their leader had liked Xia Man since they were little.
He also couldn’t believe it. In the beginning, he also felt that it went against the norms. Even so, he didn’t have the right to say anything, especially after seeing how their leader went mad. He gradually began to feel that, perhaps it was only right for Xia Man to be there, to be at their leader’s side, regardless of what Xia Man was capable of.
Zhang Lin turned to look at Fa Wu. “Fa Wu, forget about it.”
“Forget about it?” Fa Wu lowered his head and sarcastically smiled. “You’re telling me to forget about it? Do you really think it’s possible for them to be together? Xia Man is only a useless cripple. For so many years, apart from being just like a vampire leeching off of leader and enjoying everything leader gave her, what has she ever done for leader?”
Zhang Lin shook his head, feeling a bit helpless. Love is very simple. When you love someone, you would wish to give the entire world to her. There would be no reason to care about what you would receive. “Does leader wish for it?”
When he heard this, Fa Wu’s eyes turned completely red. He clenched his teeth, but he couldn’t say a word. “……”
