Number One Zombie Wife 《第一尸妻》Di Yi Shi Qi
Number One Zombie Wife, Chapter 139: The Friends are Many
Mu Yifan was excited at the thought of having two very powerful powers and, he was even more powerful than the original zombie king.
But when he thought about his future relationship with Zhuang Ziyue, he couldn’t be happier.
That night, because of the damage to his room, Mu Yifan had to switch rooms with Zhan Beitian.
The next morning, Lu Lin reports, Zhuang Ziyue has not returned to the villa all night and, Chen Yan has died at home, the crystal cores in her brain have been ripped out.
Zhan Beitian testified directly to Commander Zhou, who was guarding the safety of K City, that he had seen Zhuang Ziyue break into Chen Yan’s room last night and kill her to extract the core.
Then, he also mentioned to Colonel Zhou that the other mutants were probably Zhuang Ziyue, so, Colonel Zhou excluded the army from searching for Zhuang Ziyue in the Eastern District.
Zhan Beitian also stayed in K City for two more days in order to find Zhuang Ziyue, making sure that Zhuang Ziyue was most likely not in K City, before taking his team north.
On the morning of their departure, Li Tianqing rushes to the apartment complex with his luggage and found Zhan Beitian.
“Zhan… Major General Zhan, No… It’s not good, Major Zhan… General, not good… Can’t stay.”
Zhan Beitian was happy to have Li Tianqing on his team the moment he saw him with his luggage but when he heard the words ‘no good’, he quickly frowned.
Mu Yifan, who is helping with the luggage, saw Li Tianqing’s panicked appearance and his heart immediately goes up, thinking that something bad is going to happen.
In the novel, Li Tianqing originally did not want to join Zhan Beitian’s team, she only wanted to stay in K City where she grew up but was forced to go north to B City with Zhan Beitian because of the wave of zombies.
Mu Yifan looked at the luggage in Li Tianqing’s hand.
Could it be…
Xiang Guo hurriedly asked: “Li Lao, what’s going on that you’re in such a panic?”
Li Tianqing panted: “I… I heard a lot of zombies, from all directions… I think there are more than tens of thousands of them.”
Earlier, he was just checking out the situation around K City but he didn’t expect to hear the ‘wail’ coming from the mouths of the zombies.
He didn’t care, because he used to hear them all the time when he was eavesdropping but the more he heard them, the worse it got, because there were so many of them, it was like a big choir and, they were getting closer and closer.
So, he guessed that the zombies were probably trying to attack K City.
It’s a wave of zombies!
Mu Yifan thought, I didn’t expect it but there was still a wave of zombies but who was leading the attack this time?
Couldn’t be Zhuang Ziyue, could it?
But, he didn’t sense the zombies coming, so, they must be 30km away.
Those who heard the news, drew a cold breath.
Xiang Guo said with a baffled face: “Li Lao, how did you know they were coming this way.”
“The voices beyond are getting clearer, the voices, before they dare to be sure.” Li Tianqing looked to Zhan Beitian and said: “Major General Zhan, what do we do next?”
Zhan Beitian looked to Mu Yifan.
Mu Yifan could see that Zhan Beitian was asking if this was really the case and nodded.
Zhan Beitian looked serious and immediately ordered: “Xiang Guo, you drive and inform Commander Zhou, tell everyone in K City to evacuate K City and go north.”
On second thought, he added: “Go to the secondary road, the tunnels there are shorter and less dangerous.”
It’s too late to prepare for the defensive in K City and, K City is undefended and can only be left, at least there won’t be as many zombies on the way out as when K City is under siege, might as well just kill the way out.
“Yes.” Xiang Guo didn’t delay, he got into the SUV and drove off to tell Commander Zhou.
Zhan Beitian turned to Mao Yu and said: “Give the order, tell everyone to get their things together and leave as quickly as possible.”
Li Tianqing said: “Next, I’ll leave Major General Zhan to take care of it.”
Zhan Beitian nodded and told Zheng Guozong to arrange for Li Tianqing.
Zheng Guozong saw the importance of Li Tianqing to Zhan Beitian and dares not delay and immediately made arrangements for Li Tianqing.
Twenty minutes later, the radio in the eastern part of K City blared urgently: “Attention eastern district, attention eastern district, the zombies are arriving in K City and want to take over K City, please evacuate immediately, please evacuate immediately. Head north on the secondary road.”
As soon as the broadcast came out, the whole East Side was in chaos.
Survivors in the makeshift trading area, gather up their belongings and run, some even take advantage of the opportunity to rob others of their precious food.
Many of the survivors, expecting K City to be a bad place to stay, put their packed bags in their cars and drove north on the secondary road.
When the Zhan Beitian group arrived at the secondary road, they saw many cars speeding up to over 200 km/h, like lightning and with a swish, a car flew past their group.
Sun Zihao, who was driving in front of them, said with a snort: “You want to die for going so fast?”
The way they were running, before they ran into the zombies, they would probably have been in a car accident.
About five or six minutes after the caravan left the K City area, on a secondary road, Mu Yifan finally sensed the scent of his kind coming from the distance.
He looked ahead with wide eyes and murmured in shock: “Many.”
Zhan Beitian, sitting beside him, heard something and asked: “What many?”
Mu Yifan looked at Sun Zihao and Lu Lin sitting in front of him and said nervously: “There are many little ones.”
He really sensed many of them, twice as many as he had seen in his novels, not to mention that they were only encountering a small number of the zombies that were besieging K City, if all the zombies that were besieging K City were in front of them, there was no telling how shocking it would be.
Zhan Beitian said with a raised eyebrow: “How many are there?”
Mu Yifan whispered in his ear: “At least a hundred thousand.”
Twice as many as Li Tianqing had said and, that was the number of zombies they had encountered up ahead, not counting the ones coming from the east, south and west.
Zhan Beitian wrinkles his nose.
If they had only been surrounded by tens of thousands, as Li Tianqing had said, then, they would have encountered only about 10,000 zombies at most and they would have easily taken them out.
But, there are now 100,000 of them waiting for them, not so easy to deal with.
The convoy had been travelling for another seven or eight minutes, when Zhan Beitian saw the wide fields of vegetables on either side of the second level and immediately called for a halt.
The cars behind them slowly stopped, followed by the survivors of the other cars behind the convoy shouting: “Are you going or not, get out of my way.”
The survivors in the convoy were very anxious, wondering why Zhan Beitian had stopped so suddenly.
Xiang Guo gets out of the car and runs to ask: “Boss, what’s wrong?”
Zhan Beitian said: “It’s not safe up ahead, the cars running ahead will definitely back up, it will cause a serious traffic jam.”
Sun Zihao asked: “So what do we do now?”
“Now we have to wait for the people in front of us to fall back here, then we can move, now, let’s deploy, you go and get Mao Yu.”
The cars behind their convoy saw that they were not leaving, they had to take advantage of the gap and turned into the passing lane, passing them, all with their windows open and cursing, before speeding off.
Zhan Beitian gives him a cold look, then, quickly assigns Sun Zihao, Lu Lin, Mao Yu and Xiang Guo to their jobs.
Five minutes later, the men in the queue see the cars running ahead and they all drive backwards, blocking the cars coming from behind.
The man in front of the car backing up, shouted to the people behind him in panic: “There are lots of zombies ahead, back off.”
Xiang Guo immediately leads a group of soldiers, directing them to drive the cars into the field, with their team driving the way, the others with powers following behind.
The survivors did not believe in their abilities but seeing that they were all soldiers and, hearing Xiang Guo’s words about the horde of zombies to the east, south and west, even if they retreated, they would be dead.
Now they can only kill their way out, to get north safely, so, they can only trust Xiang Guo and the others for once.
The survivors in front of them quickly pull into the field, giving way to Zhan Beitian and his men, who lead the way north.
