“Alright, leave it to me.”
Ye Yu nodded. It was not a big deal anyway. He could settle it easily. His tall and sturdy body stood under the porch. A bright light above his head fell on the brim of his hat, keeping his face hidden in the shadows. Ye Yu raised his head and looked at Su Su. After thinking for a moment, he said,
“Su Su, what I told you is true. I have never thought of avoiding my responsibility.”
“Ye Yu, let me ask you something. Can you answer me honestly?”
“What’s going on in De City?”
Was this the same thing as what Ye Yu had said? Ye Yu stared at Su Su for a long while before he found a railing on the side of the porch and sat down. Propping up his long legs, he put his hands in his pockets and replied,
“It doesn’t matter if I tell you about this. It’s not a big secret anyway. Do you know that there’s a famous CDC beside the viaduct in De City?”
CDC???? Su Su had a bad feeling. She sat beside Ye Yu. It was a little cold at night as she was only wearing a thin gray sweater, so she put her hands in the pockets and waited quietly for Ye Yu to continue.
“We received a mission saying that there was a group of thugs causing trouble at the CDC. Originally, when it was our turn to take action, we would kill all of them without mercy. However, when we entered De City, we realized that the leaders of De City didn’t allow us to get close to the CDC at all. The place was under martial law, and all the people around the CDC were all locked up and couldn’t come out easily.”
“Then, my parents…”
“The bus your parents were on at the time was still thousands of miles away from the CDC, but they were also sent to a few hospitals in De City. They said that they were going to give the passengers a blood test. Thus, I could easily find them and bring them out by checking the list of patients in the hospital.”
Upon listening to Ye Yu’s words, Su Su became more and more alarmed. Something bad really happened in De City, and it was not a small matter. However, that incident were obviously suppressed by the local leaders. The excuse they gave to the outside world was that there was a group of thugs causing trouble at the CDC. They had initially notified the special forces to settle it, but for some unknown reason, the special forces could not even get close to the CDC.
Considering the apocalypse that would come in the future and the claim that the apocalypse was brought about by the plague, it was not difficult for Su Su to guess that there were people who had turned into zombies at the CDC in De City, which was under martial law.
The apocalypse could not be hidden. Even if the authorities tried to put the entire De City under martial law for the sake of their future or for some other reason to prevent the news from leaking out. The apocalypse would still come even if they control the entire CDC, or a few streets near the CDC, or covered up the incident. Humans would catch a cold and have a fever. The virus had long existed in the air. It was only a matter of time before they mutated.
“Su Su, Su Su???”
Ye Yu’s spread his palm open and swayed in front of Su Su’s eyes. She came back to her senses and turned her head to look at Ye Yu who was sitting beside her. Ye Yu looked at her expression as if he was a little curious and a little worried. Su Su forced a smile and pushed his hand away.
“I’m fine. I just think that what you said is really weird. By the way, are you free on the night of December 30th?”
“Nothing. I’m inviting you to the top of Mingyang Mountain to see the stars!”
The top of Mingyang Mountain was high and cold. The main thing was that it would rain every day since December. It would rain heavily sometimes and drizzle sometimes. On December 30th, it would rain for a whole day. No one would be crazy enough to choose to go there that day. If Ye Yu went to the top of Mingyang Mountain and did not turn into a zombie, he would definitely survive on December 31st. There would not be a scene where he would be attacked and eaten by zombies.
Su Su’s hand unconsciously touched her belly. She said to Xiao Ai in her heart, ‘Dear, your father doesn’t look like a bad person. He even helped us find your grandparents. So, let’s help him. However, he still needs to rely on himself if he want to survive. We can only help him up to this point.’
“You’ll go there with me?! Are you trying to find a place where no one can see me and kill me? The summit of Mingyang Mountain is a good place to hide corpses! Su Su, you don’t need to go through so much trouble to kill me. You can just kill me now!”
Ye Yu was obviously skeptical. He pulled his collar and exposed his neck. He stretched his head and brought his neck near to Su Su. However, Su Su pushed him away and shrugged her shoulders, she then put on a straight face and entered her villa.
She did not care what Ye Yu was thinking. As long as Ye Yu went to the summit of Mingyang Mountain that day, he would be fine.
Su Su entered her house after leaving Ye Yu behind. She then saw her parents as they were sitting upright on the sofa in the living room, clearly waiting for her to give them an explanation. Su Su did not panic and walked up to the second floor. As she walked, she said,
“Daddy, mommy, goodnight. Your bedroom is in the first room on the left. Everything’s ready in there.”
“Su Su, come here. Daddy has something to say to you!”
Her father’s tone was very strict. He sat on the sofa and waved at Su Su’s. She sighed in her heart, and she did not walk up the stairs. She turned around and returned to the living room as she sat on the seat that her parents had specified.
What happened next was exactly what Su Su had expected. Her father and mother took turns to ask her questions. Their tone was rather gentle because from their experience, Su Su must have been wronged in school. They had to ask her clearly, but they could not be anxious, in case Su Su could not bear with them. Su Su was very familiar with such matters. Anyway, she just lowered her head and did not speak, allowing her parents to guess and connect the dots.
The more Su Su acted like that, the more worried Su Su’s parents were. The two of them asked for a long time, but could not get a single word out of Su Su. They could only give up, and they had planned to go to school tomorrow to ask her form teacher about it. Since young, Su Su had been bullied, and Su Su’s parents would go to school to question her teacher. Hence, they were quite familiar with doing such thing.
Th next morning, Su Su’s parents were fully armed and took a taxi to her school. Su Su excused herself because she was in a bad mood and allowed her parents to go to school to cause trouble. She wanted to stay home to continue her training. She would also wait for the owners of the liquefied gas canisters to send them over. Then, she would locked them all in the basement. Su Su had locked all the supplies she had bought in the past few days in the basement. Later, she would go out again and buy more supplies.
