Chapter 17: Strange

A Tu was startled that he actually jumped. Jumping back one step, he subconsciously released his power. Until he realized that the thing in front of him was a human and not something else, did he relax and let out a breath. “We are an investigation squad from the survivors of S City’s survivor base. We were just pa.s.sing by this area, is it possible for us to lodge with you for a night?”

That person used a strange gaze to give A Tu a glance, then opened her mouth to speak. “Sure, sure. But what is a survivor base?”

A Tu looked around at his surroundings. “Is it okay if you let us in first, then I can explain everything to you?”

“Come in.” That person retreated and allowed Shao Qing and the rest to enter. Shao Qing knitted her eyebrows as she entered. She had a feeling that the person’s gaze was a bit too strange, as for why it was strange, Shao Qing wasn’t able to pinpoint it.

After entering, Shao Qing and the rest realized that it was a big courtyard that they were in. Within the courtyard, there was a dried up thin woman carrying a child, facing towards the doorway with a lifeless look in her eyes.

She was wearing an outer coat, loosely slung over her shoulders with more than half of her chest hanging out in the air. From her neck until her stomach, traces of purple scars could be seen.

When Shao Qing and the rest arrived by her side, the woman squeezed her child to her chest in alarm and continuously uttered: “Don’t eat my child, please don’t eat my child…”

It was then that Shao Qing realized what she was squeezing to her chest was absolutely not a child. Instead it was a tiny filthy quilt for a bed wrapped around a small pillow.

Shao Qing’s gaze quickly became cold, not saying much. On the contrary, the person leading the way made haste in saying: “She’s a lunatic. Her child was probably bitten by her man and turned into a zombie. Seeing that she was so pitiful, we offered her some shelter and care.”

“She is somewhat good looking.” After the man from the young couple mumbled these few words, his wife immediately slapped him hard.

Entering the house, the person leading the way let out a loud yell. “Boss, there’s some survivor base people that has come.” Following his yell to his boss, several gloomy and cold looks landed on Shao Qing’s body.

Within the house there were quite a few people. Leaning unsteadily from side to side, a majority of the people there were super skinny and wore shabby clothing. However, the boss he called out was instead wearing neat and tidy clothes, looking as if he was trying to put on airs.

“Survivor base?” The boss walked over. Seeing him up close, he looked fairly upright, except for the triangular pair of eyes he was born with. When he smiled, his eyes narrowed making it look treacherous no matter how you look at it.

After walking over, he first drew out a cigarette. He handed one over to A Tu, one over to Gu Chuan, one over to the man from the young couple, and one over to Yan Hanqing. Gu Chuan and Yan Hanqing did not accept it while A Tu and the husband accepted the offer.

A Tu smiled a bit, then happily stated. “Since the arrival of the apocalypse, I don’t know how long have I gone without smoking these rare goods.”

What A Tu said was the truth. Since the apocalypse, people barely had enough to eat, where on earth would they be able to find cigarettes to smoke.

The boss brought his lighter over to A Tu to help him light his cigarette. After lighting up his cigarette, he laughed. “Would these beautiful women also like a cigarette?”

Gu Panpan and the woman hurriedly shook their heads and hands to express that they didn’t want to smoke a cigarette. The boss also did not force it and beamed. “I have also heard that there was a survivor base ahead. Constructed pretty well, I’ve always wanted to bring my group of brothers over there. However, we have a lot of people. Once we start journeying towards the s
