Number One Zombie Wife 《第一尸妻》Di Yi Shi Qi
Number One Zombie Wife, Chapter 80: Find another one better than him
Mu Yifan’s first thought was that his big brother gave him sashimi last night, otherwise, who else would know that he wants to eat sashimi, except Zheng Guozong, of course.
He’s not related to that man. Why did he give him sashimi? Why did he ask him to go to G City?
He asked, “Little Zhang, is the man who asked you to bring this over a man from the village? What does he look like?”
Zhang Le said: “The man was very tall and wore a big straw hat on his head, the brim of which covered almost half of his face and he was on the roadside, the light was dim and his back was turned to the light, so I couldn’t see what he looked like at all.”
Zheng Guozong asked, “How do you know he’s not from the village if you don’t even know what he looks like?”
Zhang Le refuted and said: “No one in our village wears leather boots.”
Zheng Guozong rubbed his head and said: “Good boy, observing quite carefully.”
Mu Yifan thanked Zhang Le, returned to the hall, opened the Tupperware and was greeted by a special aroma, not dissimilar to the smell of live human flesh he had asked about.
He couldn’t resist picking up the chopsticks from the table, quickly grabbed the sashimi and stuffed it into his mouth.
Zheng Guozong returned to the lobby, saw Mu Yifan enjoying his meal and asked, “Did your friend send this?”
Mu Yifan shook his head as he ate, “I don’t know who the other guy is, quack, so bring a bowl and save some for Jiaming, otherwise I’m going to eat it all.”
He just couldn’t stop thinking about how long it had been since he’d had a good meal like this and luckily, they had a big box of them.
Zheng Guozong hesitated and said: “It was given to you by someone else.”
Mu Yifan said and said: “He was giving it to me, so what if I want to give some to Jiaming, besides, it’s good stuff, I eat it with pride, I don’t even feel hungry, it’s like eating live human flesh.”
Zheng Guozong said, “It’s not like it’s made of live human flesh.”
“No, I can still taste it if it were that. It’s definitely sashimi.”
The more Mu Yifan eats, the better he feels, like he is full of energy and the more he feels relaxed.
He suddenly thought of something and stopped his chopsticks.
He couldn’t think of anyone else in the world who could make sashimi that tasted as good as human flesh and had the effect of making him feel less hungry, except for the spiritual spring in Zhan Beitian’s space.
Mu Yifan’s eyes darkened as he thought of that day at Mu-shi Group.
Zhan Beitian already knows that he is Mu Yifan and now he wants to kill him right away, how could he feed him with the space stuff and how could Zhan Beitian know that he is in the Shui Village.
And if not him, who else could do it?
Zheng Guozong saw that Mu Yifan stopped using chopsticks and his face was pale, so he asked with concern, “Mr. Mu, what’s wrong with you? Is there something wrong with the sashimi?”
Mu Yifan shook his head and said: “No problem, I just suddenly thought of a friend of mine.”
He put down his chopsticks and suddenly lost his appetite.
Zheng Guozong asked, “Your friend? Is he the one who took you to the hospital last time?”
That young man is quite good-looking.
“That’s him, I’m very close to him.”
However, the real Zhan Beitian, the Zhan Beitian of the book, may not have taken him seriously at all.
Zheng Guozong nodded and said: “I know.”
If he wasn’t good, you wouldn’t have slept with him and you wouldn’t have had a baby.
“But, now that we’re…” Mu Yifan feels sad thinking about it but it’s nice to have someone to talk to.
Zheng Guozong patted him on the shoulder and said: “You’re sad, little one, break things up and you will find a better one later.”
Mu Yifan was stunned and said: “Huh?”
Why does he think he’s not on the same page as the quack?
Zheng Guozong distracted him so as not to upset him and handed him the bowl, “I’ve packed the sashimi, you can take it up for me.”
“Oh.” Mu Yifan took the bowl and the container to his room on the second floor and closed the door.
Zheng Jiaming came over as soon as he smelled the scent and asked, “What…? What is this?”
“Sashimi.” Mu Yifan put the bowl on the table, then, handed Zheng Jiaming a pair of chopsticks and said: “You try it.”
Zheng Jiaming didn’t even think about it, he just picked up a piece and put it in his mouth.
“How was it? Is it good?” Mu Yifan asked immediately.
Zheng Jiaming nodded his head and said: “It seems that after eating it, I don’t feel hungry anymore, it’s really strange, it’s all sashimi, why is it different from what I ate this morning.”
Mu Yifan laughed, “I do think you’ve become more articulate since you ate.”
By the way, he has known Zheng Jiaming for so many days but today it is the first time to see his face. He is not really handsome but his long and thin eyes are very special, with an attractive and unique look.
“Really?” Zheng Jiaming said a few words casually and really didn’t find it difficult to speak anymore.
Mu Yifan waited until he was almost done eating and then said, “Jiaming, there is something I want to tell you.”
“What is it?” Zheng Jiaming put down his chopsticks and listened to him carefully, which showed respect for others.
“If we want to get out of eating live human flesh, we can’t stay in the Shui village and, hiding here, will only make us weaker and weaker, even if we get killed by other humans, or controlled by other zombies.”
Mu Yifan originally wanted to wait until Zheng Jiaming’s mother’s seventh day pass wake passes but after reading the note just now, he thought he could talk to Zheng Jiaming in advance to give him some time to think about it and then he could leave Shui village after the seventh day.
Zheng Jiaming’s eyes darkened when he heard the word “control”, reminding him of the miserable days at the National Research Institute.
“What do you want to do?”
Mu Yifan knew that Zheng Jiaming’s words were a promise to leave, so he said; “This will wait until after your mother’s first seven days but before that, you have to talk to your father.”
Two days later, it will be the seventh day of Zheng Jiaming’s mother wake, in the meantime, everyone still cannot get used to the days without electricity, people seldom go out of their homes, let alone know what is happening in the city, they still think, as long as the city side fixed the power lines, the power will come on, so they keep waiting.
In addition, every day at around 8 pm, Mu Yifan would receive sashimi from Zhang Le, fresh sashimi at that.
So, curious as to who was so kind as to offer him sashimi to quell his hunger, he sneaked into the bushes near Zhang Le’s house at the entrance to the village and waited in ambush.
However, he waited until eight o’clock and still couldn’t find the man but a vicious big wolf dog came and chased him, barking all the way and almost got bitten on the buttocks a few times.
It was not until he got back to Zheng Guozong’s house and slammed the door that he was able to stop the vicious wolf dog from chasing him.
The wolf dog was so smart that when he knew he couldn’t get in, he barked twice and ran away.
Mu Yifan breathed a sigh of relief and before he could enter the hall and sit down, he heard someone outside shouting, “Mr. Mu, I’ve brought you sashimi.”
Why did he bring sashimi right after he came back?
Mu Yifan opened the door and saw Zhang Le gloating and said: “Mr. Mu, the gentleman who delivered the sashimi asked me to tell you that hiding in the bushes makes it easier for dogs to chase you.”
Mu Yifan and said: “…”
That man must have known he was hiding in the haystack. That’s why he never showed up.
Mu Yifan took the sashimi and said, “Make sure he understands that he doesn’t have to send sashimi and tell him thank you for me.”
Zhang Le asked, “You’re leaving here?”
Zhang Le left without asking any questions.
The next morning, Zheng Guozong and Zheng Jiaming got into the car with Mu Yifan and left the Shui village.
After all, they have been living in the big city for so many years and Zheng Guozong thinks that he should be wherever his son is. Therefore, when Zheng Jiaming said he wanted to leave the Shui village, he agreed to follow him without saying a word.
When they got to the Shui village, ten kilometers away, they started to see zombies moving slowly down the road.
When they saw the car, they came at it with such ferocity that Mu Yifan knocked them to the side of the road.
Zheng Guozong kept shouting, “Someone’s dead, someone’s dead.”
Zheng Jiaming quickly said, “Dad, they don’t die from being run over that easily.”
If it wasn’t for Zheng Guozong, those zombies wouldn’t have come near their car.
Zheng Guozong looked back and saw the man who had been knocked off his feet and got up again.
He stared in horror, “Oh my God, are they even human?”
Zheng Jiaming and Mu Yifan were both silent.
