Number One Zombie Wife 《第一尸妻》Di Yi Shi Qi
Number One Zombie Wife, Chapter 128: Are you sure you want to defend him?
The more Zhan Beitian listened to the recording, the colder he became.
After he came out of Xiang Guo’s room, he thought he’d find a place to listen to the recording but he didn’t realize that it had already spread throughout the east side of K City.
It’s obvious this is about Mu Yifan but who’s after Mu Yifan?
Is it Zhuang Ziyue, or Rong Yan or someone else?
The recording stops at ’Are you really a zombie’.
Zheng Guozong looked at Zhan Beitian with a worried face and said: “Major General Zhan, what are you going to do next? And where did you get this recording from?”
Zhan Beitian didn’t hold back and said: “It fell out of Rong Yan’s pants pocket.”
Zheng Guozong froze, frowned and said, “It fell out of Rong Yan’s pants pocket? So she secretly recorded Mr. Zhuang and Mumu’s conversation? But, it’s not like she’s the kind of person who would do such a thing.”
He wasn’t quite convinced and said: “If she really did it, it’s really unbelievable that such an innocent girl would do such a thing.”
At this point, Zheng Guozong can’t help but sigh and said: “Love is really easy to make a person so scary, really will do anything to get the person you like.”
In Zheng Guozong’s mind, he thinks that Rong Yan must have known that the person Zhan Beitian likes is Mu Yifan and that’s why she will use some tricks to get rid of his rival.
Zhan Beitian raised an eyebrow and looked at Zheng Guozong in confusion and said: “Dr. Zheng, what do you mean by the rest of your words?”
“What do you mean? Don’t you know that Rong Yan likes you? Now everyone in the team knows that Rong Yan is your girlfriend.” Zheng Guozong didn’t give him a good look.
Zhan Beitian’s brow tightened a bit and said: “Who is this coming from? Who said Rong Yan was my girlfriend?”
“If she’s not your girlfriend, then why did you send soldiers to protect Rong Yan and her mother and after the end of the world, you even took them back to your team, not to mention treating Rong Yan and her mother with more care, can’t we all think otherwise? Also, now that you’re out looking for supplies, you’ve also put her in a group with you and put her by your side to take care of her, with all of these behaviors, can we not think that she’s your girlfriend?”
Zhan Beitian: “…”
He didn’t really know about it. In his normal life, he rarely had contact with other survivors and their families, so he didn’t hear these outrageous rumors.
Also, Sun Zihao and the others didn’t tell him about the rumors about Rong Yan being his girlfriend, so it’s even more unlikely that he would know about it.
The reason why he took care of Rong Yan and her mother was because Rong Yan had saved him in the last life, after that, Rong Yan had always been by his side, going around with the team to find supplies.
But he never imagined that his special care in this life would cause such a big misunderstanding.
Also, he’ll assign Rong Yan to his team, not because he’s looking after her.
Most of the team he took out to look for supplies were like Rong Yan, with no ability to defend themselves other than their abilities.
If Lu Lin and the others were given the task, it would be easy to get into trouble. After all, Lu Lin and the others are not familiar with the mutant powers, so it’s not easy to distract them from taking care of people who are not able to defend themselves.
Unlike him, he was someone who had lived through the first world and was used to the post-apocalyptic environment, which was why he had placed these people around him, so it wasn’t like he was taking special care of Rong Yan.
“Because of your actions, Rong Yan also thinks you like her. Then, she grew to love you and I think you’re responsible for what happened today. If it wasn’t for you, she wouldn’t have recorded Mumu revealing her identity as a zombie.”
Zhan Beitian’s eyebrows were furrowed together, almost in a knot.
“I know,” he said.” After saying those three words, he left Zheng Guozong’s room with the tape recorder and returned to the room he shared with Mu Yifan.
When he entered the room, he saw Mu Yifan looking in the mirror.
When Mu Yifan saw Zhan Beitian enter through the mirror, he said, ’You’re back’ and continued to look at himself in the mirror.
He doesn’t know if it’s his illusion but he felt that his black eyes were not so dark, they seemed to be lighter than before.
Also, the red circles in the inner orbits have faded and now they look less evil than if they had not slept well and had red blood cells.
He felt that the change in him was related to drinking the water from the spring.
Zhan Beitian sat down in his chair and spins the recorder in his hand, contemplating for a moment before asking, “Did you admit to Zhuang Ziyue that you’re a zombie?”
Mu Yifan motioned with a pause and said: “Yeah, how did you know that?”
In the meantime, Zhan Beitian raised his eyebrows and asked without answering, “Why are you being honest about who you are and do you trust him that much?”
Mu Yifan thought and said: “It was because I thought it couldn’t be hidden for long and sooner or later, Zhuang Ziyue would still know that I was a zombie, so I didn’t want to hide it from him, my friend.”
Zhan Beitian didn’t say anything, just threw the recorder at him and said: “Listen for yourself.”
He originally thought of hiding this matter from Mu Yifan, when he didn’t think that the matter had become so big, so if he wanted to hide it from Mu Yifan, he could only hide it for a while but not for too long.
Might as well tell the truth so Mu Yifan will know how serious it is and learn from it.
Mu Yifan, confused, took the recorder, pressed the switch and heard the recorder say, ’Yifan, there’s something I don’t know whether to ask you or not.’
The next conversation on the tape made him turn pale.
Zhan Beitian and said: “This recorder fell off Rong Yan, I wonder if she secretly recorded it when you were talking to Zhuang Ziyue…”
Before he could finish his sentence, Mu Yifan said, “It wasn’t her.”
“What?” Zhan Beitian looked at him in confusion.
“Rong Yan didn’t record it.” Mu Yifan was sure.
He’s a zombie, he can smell the scent of living flesh, so if there was anyone around at that time, how could he not know, otherwise, could he be so bold to admit to Zhuang Ziyue that he’s a zombie?
Zhan Beitian was quick to wonder why Mu Yifan was so sure and he didn’t quite believe that Rong Yan had done it either.
If Rong Yan had done it, he would have kicked Rong Yan out of the group when he got the tape recorder and wouldn’t have gone out with Xiang Guo to get dinner without saying anything.
“And who do you think did it?”
Mu Yifan’s hand, holding the recorder, suddenly tightened and then, muttering, “I don’t know anymore.”
Zhan Beitian’s eyebrows moved.
He senses that Mu Yifan knows exactly who did it, he just doesn’t want to admit it.
“There’s one more thing I must tell you, there’s a good chance that the entire East End will have heard this recording by now.”
Mu Yifan raised his eyes abruptly to Zhan Beitian.
Just at that moment, there was a sharp knock on the door of the room, followed by Sun Zihao’s anxious voice, “Boss, are you there?”
Zhan Beitian opened the door quickly and said in a quiet voice, “What’s wrong?”
Sun Zihao quickly said, “For some reason, many mutant humans have surrounded us outside our apartment building, saying that they want us to hand over Mu Yifan.”
After that, he looked over at Mu Yifan.
Zhan Beitian didn’t expect the mutant to come to his door so soon and turned to Mu Yifan, “You stay in your room and don’t come out.”
He closed the door and rushed off with Sun Zihao.
Mu Yifan went to the window, pulled it open and looked down.
Thousands of people stood downstairs and many more shouted, “Give us Mu Yifan.”
The soldiers, fearing that the psychics would storm the apartment building, blocked the entrance to the apartment.
Fortunately, the mutant humans had scruples about these soldiers and didn’t use their powers to cause trouble.
Survivors in the apartment building are watching what’s going on from their hiding places.
A few minutes later, Zhan Beitian and Sun Zihao stepped out of the apartment building and asked the people who were shouting, “I wonder what you are doing here?”
His voice wasn’t loud but it was loud enough for the leader to hear him.
The lead man raised his hand in a gesture to silence the others and then, looking at Zhan Beitian, asked, “You are…”
“I’m the captain here, Zhan.”
“So you’re Major General Zhan, that’s good, so hurry up and call out Mu Yifan from your team.”
Zhan Beitian narrowed his eyes, “If you want me to hand someone over, you have to give me a reason.”
The lead man smirked, “Do I need to give a reason? Major General Zhan, Mu Yifan is a zombie, are you sure you want to defend him?”
