Living in the Last Days - Chapter 21
Xia Man began to feel a piercing pain in her palms again. She could roughly guess why it was. Apart from when she used it to save everyone, every time she used the vines, she would face this kind of repercussion.
Xia Man’s guess was that the vines must belong to the wood domain. Once she takes lives, her palm would be in this kind of thorough pain. But then again, why would it matter?
Qu Zhen’s whole heart was entirely worried about Xia Man’s body. She noticed Xia Man’s sudden abnormality. Xia Man was uncomfortable only after Xiang Yang’s matter!
“If you want to, we can go back…” Qu Zhen looked at how Xia Man was gritting her teeth and clenching her hands and finally compromised.
It might be because of her physical discomfort, with this sentence Qu Zhen uttered, Xia Man’s nervousness exploded. Qu Zhen was always like this. Never paying attention to what she herself desired and always paying for it in the end!
“Qu Zhen! We’ve never been in the same world!!” Xia Man deeply felt that there was an enormous uncrossable gorge between the two!
“……” Qu Zhen looked at Xia Man who stubbornly raised her head, looking just like a noble white swan, using that kind of attitude to cover-up her restless heart. Her heart was bursting with pain. She already didn’t know how she had to deal with Xia Man.
Xia Man spoke wrongly. It wasn’t that the two of them had never been in the same world. Rather, she never dared to be too close to Xia Man. She understood herself the most, especially her dark side. She actually hiron Xia Man and made Xia Man hate her.
The only thing she could do was do whatever she could to satisfy Xia Man’s every need, especially when she falls in love with another, Qu Zhen wouldn’t dare to get too close even more…
Looking at Qu Zhen’s distancing expression as though they were strangers, Xia Man didn’t look scared like in her previous life. On the contrary, she wished she could crack open this woman’s skull. She wanted to see what she was thinking. She obviously loathed Xiang Yang, but she just couldn’t bring herself to tell her!
“Auntie Hua! Hurry come and carry me! Mother is angry!” When the chubby little girl awoke only to hear Xia Man’s voice, she immediately stretched out her chubby arms to ask Hua Xiangrong for a hug.
The initial incomparably awkward scene became a lot better because of what the chubby little girl just said. Hua Xiangrong stopped the car and held the chubby little girl. “Let your mother and your mommy slowly be noisy. They’re also noisy on the top and bottom of the bed anyways!” Hua Xiangrong meaningfully told.
When Qu Zhen, who was at the back, heard those words, she took a quick look at Xia Man’s facial expressions, only to see Xia Man’s brows tightly wrinkle, her entire arm trembling.
“……” Qu Zhen briefly sighed. How could she have that kind of notion in her heart.
Xia Man was in so much pain that she couldn’t open her eyes at all. From childhood until adulthood, she never had the habit of screaming out nor speaking out. She only bore it silently. Perhaps it was meant as a type of punishment for herself inside!
She hated herself. She also hated Xiang Yang!
“Leader?!” Hua Xiangrong looked at the tall wall that appeared before her eyes. She turned her head to look at Qu Zhen. She never anticipated that very quickly, they would actually meet with tall iron fences!
“Who?!” A group in silver-white armor walked over.
“Why are there so many iron fences altogether?” Fa Wu opened his mouth to ask. He had a vague answer in his heart.
“What is the meaning of this! Turn back this instant! You’re not allowed to pass!” A man wearing a mask raised a gun and threatened.
Qu Zhen wrinkled her brows. At this moment, how could their superior have the time to take care of these matters?
On the way here, there were originally a few doubts. Although the people here couldn’t be counted as a lot, the number of zombies by far should have been much greater. Moreover, there was no food in any of the places they temporarily stayed in for the nights!
“Who’s your superior?” Hua Xiangrong got off the car and looked at the faces of the people outside while probing the quality of the iron fences by lightly using a fireball to strike it. The result was that there was none.
“Go back! I’ll count to three!” The leading man raised his gun.
Fa Wu wanted to beat them up, but lowered his arm because of Qu Zhen’s signal.
“Get in the car!” Qu Zhen commanded.
“……” The several got in the car. Because it would be inconvenient for Xia Man due to her foot, the chubby little girl had been staying in the car together with her and didn’t get off.
“Leader?” After waiting until they were away, Hua Xiangrong opened her mouth, “Now what?”
“……” Fa Wu and Zhang Lin, who was seated in the same car, heard this.
“On this trip, there were no other living people apart from them. Even if they all became zombies or roam at night, this shouldn’t be this few…”
Qu Zhen opened her mouth and voiced.
“Leader, what do you mean?” Hua Xiangrong also thought of this a bit, especially now that there were so many people outside.
“These people’s appearance is definitely not a coincidence. We’ll come again to inspect tonight. We can only beat the grass to scare the snake for now!” After Qu Zhen finished, she looked at the structure not far away.
 to punish one in order to warn others.
Hua Xiangrong and Fa Wu briefly nodded.
“……” Hua Xiangrong knitted her brows. Could it be that she was hallucinating? She was originally going to cook some rice, and she suddenly noticed that it felt as though they had been eating rice for so long.
Hua Xingrong looked at the three in the room then looked over to her leader, silently making a gesture of sewing her mouth. No matter what would happen, since their leader knew, whether she knew or not wouldn’t make a difference. In any case, their leader would be the one to determine.
Because there weren’t a lot of places they could live in along the way and those other people basically took away all the food, they could only eat rice.
After they ate some rice, Qu Zhen looked at Xia Man. “We need to head out for a while. You and the little one wait for us in the house.”
Because the iron fences weren’t especially far, Qu Zhen looked at Zhang Lin. “Zhang Lin will stay behind.”
Zhang Lin’s eyebrows creased, not quite understanding Qu Zhen’s decision. Even so, he still subtly nodded.
“No need. The chubby little girl and I in the house will be enough!” Xia Man didn’t have the thought of being peeved. Even without mentioning how she could use the vines to protect herself, she could completely avoid trouble by going into the space. On the contrary, if Zhang Lin was there, her hands and feet would be tied instead.
Xia Man looked at Qu Zhen in the eyes, her gaze resolute. “Zhang Lin is to follow you and go together.”
Qu Zhen looked away and nodded.
As soon as Qu Zhen left, the chubby little girl approached her. “What’s up with you today? You’re a bit weird! Didn’t you say that you were going to be nice to Qu Zhen?”
Xia Man touched her forehead. This chubby little one, as long as another was present, she would appear foolish and well-behaved. Once there’s nobody else, she instantly becomes adult-like!
“It’s nothing. Stay here, I’m going to look around for a while.” Xia Man stroked the chubby little one’s head and told.
The chubby little one stretched out her arms and began to talk as though she was wronged, “Don’t, family should go together…”
“……” Xia Man held her and got up. “And you should go into the space.” As soon as she finished, she threw the chubby little one into the space without waiting for her to refuse!
A little late, but it’s here! I remembered to update this time! (>0<)/
