After Ye Xuan said that he believed that the end of the world would be humans turning into zombies, the two fell into silence.
Ye Xuan knew that what he said was strange, and when he saw Ling Jiaze hadn’t replied, he took the initiative to change the subject: “Forget it, let’s not talk about that.
Are you currently living in the dormitory now or in your own home”
My home is a little far from the school, so it’s not very convenient to attend classes from there.”
“What supplies have you prepared for your dormitory”
“Water, instant noodles, ham sausages, canned food, and a large medicine box.
Our dormitory is a quadruple room, but there is a senior who does not live on campus, so there’s some free space to put these things.
I roughly calculated and these things should be enough for the people in our dormitory to eat for a week.”
Ye Xuan chuckled and asked: “What’s the use of only having enough for the people in your dormitory How many dormitories are upstairs and how many people are in them Are they all prepared like your dormitory”
Ling Jiaze asked somewhat uncertainly, “Should there be more than one dormitory of us storing things”
Ye Xuan recalled what happened in his previous life and said: “City C is not small in scale, and the school is generally more reliable.
If anything happens, it should be okay to listen to the school’s arrangements.
But people are fickle once there is a disaster.
I suggest you hide something secretly for yourself, just in case you need it.”
Generally speaking, when a zombie outbreak occurs, the most dangerous place was one with many people because there were many people who could become zombies.
The possibility of being eaten or infected was also high.
But it was also an area with a lot of people.
According to statistics, there were many young people in schools and in the army.
The situation of zombie outbreaks in places with good physical fitness of the overall population was actually not as dangerous in theory.
First, people with good physical fitness were more likely to awaken supernatural powers, and the possibility of being infected was relatively small.
Second, people in the army were organized and disciplined, and were more likely to control an outbreak quickly.
Although the students in the school were not as organized as soldiers, they were brave enough to fight and would not be chased to death by zombies who had no combat ability in the early stage.
If the school was reliable, the speed of controlling an outbreak would be relatively fast.
If Ye Xuan remembered correctly, C University should have quickly brought the situation under control and organized people to clean up the zombies in the school.
Although there was a bit of shortage of supplies as they dared not let students go out to find supplies, it was still a relatively safe place.
It was just that things like fights for food wouldn’t change because the school was dependable.
Ye Xuan didn’t know how Ling Jiaze’s interpersonal relationship was with his roommates, nor had he experienced the school life in the early days of the apocalypse.
He could only rely on his own experience and persuade him to keep some items for himself.
“Senior, I’m a little unnerved by what you said.” Ling Jiaze was not a little white rabbit.
He had heard from his elders that being guarded was essential since he was a child, and he had even seen many examples of power struggles.
But what Ye Xuan was talking about now was not the power of interests he knew before, but more – food and a chance to live.
If the time had come for students in a city of the peaceful era to fight over a bottle of water and a pack of instant noodles, could this era still be called an era of peace
Ye Xuan said casually: “I just mentioned the worst case scenario.
I have watched a lot of zombie war movies recently.
In times of peace, people pursue money and happiness.
These things that can improve a person’s quality of life are not present in times of chaos.
Instead there is a pursuit of food and weapons, for opportunities to survive.”
“That’s not wrong.”
Ye Xuan realized he had talked a bit too much, and changed the subject on his own initiative: “What about you Are you going to store everything in my place or do you plan to put it all in the dormitory”
Ling Jiaze glanced at the hill of supplies that Ye Xuan had placed in the corner, and said a little uncomfortably, “I’ll keep it here with senior.
If you really think that the apocalypse will come, and people will lose their heads for a chance to survive, then it’s always good to have more on hand.”
Ye Xuan’s left hand trembled slightly, just like every time his emotions fluctuated too much during this period.
He subconsciously touched the mark on his left hand with his right hand, and said in an obscure voice, “What about your dormitory”
“Shall I go out with my roommates to buy some more stuff today The dormitory is crowded with people.
Since that’s the case, it won’t be a good thing to have too many things in my hands without enough force to protect them.”
“You can never tell how someone will act in such times.
Well, you can unload the things and keep them with me.
If nothing happens, then everything can be returned.
If we are so unfortunate as to catch up with the end of the world, it can be regarded as leaving a safeguard for yourself.”
Although Ling Jiaze didn’t know why Ye Xuan thought about so many things along the line of the end of the world, he still said, “Don’t be so worried, those things can be considered as senior’s.”
“Ling Jiaze, you are too trusting,” Ye Xuan said wearily.
“I know what you are thinking, but listen to me this time. If nothing happens, then everyone is happy.
You can come and take back these things.
I don’t care if you are willing to give it away.
But if something goes wrong, this is your guarantee, you know”
“Senior, why are you so concerned about this”
Ye Xuan sat himself up on the sofa and said, “I can’t describe this feeling.
I have an intuition that these natural disasters are a harbinger of a real catastrophe, an unprecedented disaster.
Don’t trust my character too much and don’t expect too much from me.
I’m not a person with high moral standards, and I have no moral standards in the face of disasters.”
If it was his previous life when he had no space and only the supplies he had hoarded at home, if Ling Jiaze came to the door, Ye Xuan really wasn’t sure that he would be a good person and return the things he deposited to him.
Even in this life that he was fully prepared, didn’t he choose not to tell anyone the news of the end of the world because of his self-protection mentality
Ling Jiaze knew that his idea was crazy, but when he looked at Ye Xuan who was leaning on the sofa, there was suddenly a feeling that he was neither lying nor exaggerating.
His kind of premonition that the end of the world was coming was real.
He wanted to hug Ye Xuan, and so he did.
The moment the two people’s bodies touched, Ling Jiaze felt the temperature coming from Ye Xuan’s body and realized what he had done.
He quickly pushed back, coughed lightly and said, “I believe in you.
Since you believe in your intuition that the end of the world will come, I’ll also trust my intuition that you are a person worthy of my trust.”
Ye Xuan threw his glasses aside and looked up at Ling Jiaze.
Whether it was from his knowledge of human behaviour or the vague feeling of spiritual power, Ye Xuan knew that what Ling Jiaze was saying was true.
Wholeheartedly trusting a person just because of a brief interaction a few years ago was crazy.
The two sat looking at each other for a long time.
Ye Xuan put on his glasses again and said, “I see.
Let’s go to the garage and put things down.
Have you eaten Let’s go to the city for lunch together afterwards.
You can forget about it if you’re in a hurry to go back to school.”
Ling Jiaze didn’t realize what was going on at all, and called him subconsciously, “Senior Ye”
“Shh, let me tell you.
If you don’t turn into a zombie, I will tell you everything one day.”
Ye Xuan paused and said, “Can we end today’s topic Also, pay more attention to safety during this time.” He originally wanted to suggest that Ling Jiaze should stay with him for the next few days, and not rush back to school.
When the words came to his mouth, he changed his rhetoric, only adding a dry note of safety.
Ye Xuan, who had just returned from the urge to confess, thought a little coldly.
According to his own assessment, he suspected Ling Jiaze had a crush on him but he didn’t have any love for him.
This relationship was not worth the risk for the time being.
It was not worth the risk of everything.
Ling Jiaze said without thinking: “Okay, I’ll listen to you.” For him, it was an unexpected joy to be able to chat with Ye Xuan for so long today, and to discuss such sensitive issues.
Not to mention that Ye Xuan had promised to tell him everything one day.
Even if he didn’t tell himself in his life, it didn’t matter.
Ling Jiaze looked at Ye Xuan’s back, took a few steps to keep up with him, and thought to himself, “After all, I never thought that I would have the opportunity to get close to him, did I”
On the evening of September 22, the day before the end of the world, Ye Xuan, who was dismantling the last batch of orders at home, suddenly felt an abnormal burning sensation from the mark on his left hand.
He threw the courier box he was holding aside and released the vines that he had been living with for several days.
He was surprised to find that the other party had turned into what he looked like when he first saw it a few years ago.
A large green vine appeared out of thin air in the living room of the villa.
Ye Xuan took the initiative to reach out to the trunk of the large piece of vines.
The moment the vine in the center came into contact with Ye Xuan, the surrounding vines returned to Ye Xuan’s body along the contact point, and soon the living room returned normal.
Only Ye Xuan and the main vine remained.
Ye Xuan, who had fought with the vines many times and knew its situation quite well, said with a smile: “You actually regained your ability before the apocalypse started”
The vine couldn’t speak, but he could probably understand what Ye Xuan meant.
It rubbed against Ye Xuan’s arm, and then bent himself into a big checkmark according to the previous way of conveying messages to indicate that Ye Xuan was right.
Ye Xuan, who had thought that he and the vines would only recover their abilities after the end of the world, was simply dying of joy.
He circled around the vines several times and asked in a flash, “Can you manipulate plants now”
As a wood-type power user, Ye Xuan had the ability to manipulate plants, and the vine also had the ability to command plants with a lower rank than it.
If this part of his ability was restored…
Ye Xuan looked at the big check mark in the air, and ran upstairs.
As he ran, he said, “Come up with me, baby.
I really love you so much!”
The vine, who got the joy of defeating all his rivals from the sentence ‘I love you too much’, didn’t care about the behavior of his host who had ran away, He followed Ye Xuan actively, and helped him open the door.
Ye Xuan said excitedly: “Help me send a letter to the world!”
