Number One Zombie Wife, Chapter 167: I want a hug too

The soldier at the door of the Zhan family know Zhan Beitian’s car, opens the door and lets Zhan Beitian drive to the garage.

Cai Yuan, who is chopping fruit in the kitchen, saw Zhan Beitian’s car coming back, immediately goes to the garage, smiles and said to Zhan Beitian who comes out of the driver’s seat: “Young Master, back.”

“Uncle Cai.” Zhan Beitian greeted the man outside the garage, then, went to the passenger seat, opened the door, took the sleeping child out on top of Mu Yifan and pushed, the man who was sleeping with his neck craned and said: “Mu Mu, get up.  Get up.”

Mu Yifan opened his eyes in a daze, stretched and said: “Are we there?”

Zhan Beitian answered in a soft voice: “Yes.”

Mu Yifan rubbed his eyes, stepped out of the car, lazily rested his head on Zhan Beitian’s shoulder as if he had no spine, muttered: “I want a hug too.”

Zhan Beitian saw him acting like a child, a softness flashed in his eyes, he gave Mu Yifan a kiss on the forehead, then patted him on the back and said: “Stand still.”

“Oh.”

Mu Yifan stood up lazily, when he saw Cai Yuan standing in the doorway looking at them in amazement, it was as if he was stabbed by a needle, he instantly came to his senses again, he stood up straight and greeted him: “Uncle Cai, good.”

Cai Yuan came back to his senses in a daze, nodded and said: “Young Master, have you had breakfast yet?”

Zhan Beitian asked Mu Yifan: “Have you and the child eaten?”

Mu Yifan shook his head and said: “No.”

Cai Yuan agreed: “I will have breakfast prepared for Little Young Master and Mr Mu.”

Mu Yifan saw him turn to leave and quickly asked Zhan Beitian: “Did Uncle Cai see you kiss me just now?”

What if Cai Yuan had told Lao Zhan that Zhan Beitian had kissed him?

Zhan Beitian asked in return: “What do you think?”

“I don’t think I saw it, did I?”

Mu Yifan felt like he was lying to himself, Cai Yuan was standing in front of the garage, how could he not have seen it.

Zhan Beitian had a smile in his eyes, he put his hand on his shoulder and led a small group into the hall, seeing Zhan Guoxiong sitting alone in the hall studying Go, he immediately said: “Grandpa, we’re back.”

When Zhan Guoxiong heard Zhan Beitian’s voice, he looked up and saw Zhan Beitian walking in with the baby in one arm and Mu Yifan in the other.

Somehow, a strange feeling came over me, as if I had seen a family of three coming back to visit.

Zhan Guoxiong looked back and said with a grunt: “You’ve come back?”

The last time he came back to B City, he was home for less than half a day, he took a group of people to school and only came back today.

“I’ve been busy lately.” Zhan Beitian gently pats the child in his arms to wake him up.

Mu Qingtian woke up, rubbed his eyes with his little hand and when he saw Zhan Guoxiong, he called out in a sticky-sweet voice: “Great Grandpa, hello.”

Zhan Guoxiong’s face immediately softened and he beckoned to the child: “Mutian, come to Grandpa, let Grandpa, hold you.”

What did Grandpa call the child Mutian?

Zhan Beitian raised his eyebrows in confusion and put the child on the ground.

As soon as Mu Qingtian landed, he jumped into Zhan Guoxiong’s arms and said: “Great Grandpa.”

Zhan Guoxiong happily picked up the child and said: “Did you miss Grandpa?”

“Yes.”

Zhan Guoxiong was in a better mood when he heard that.

Mu Yifan took advantage of Zhan Guoxiong’s happiness and immediately sat down opposite Zhan Guoxiong and said: “Great Grandpa, are you playing chess alone? Do you want me to play a few games with you?”

“Sure, the usual rules, win me and you can stay for dinner.”

Zhan Guoxiong was already bored, Cai Yuan was not very good at Go, he lost every time, leaving him with no challenge and over time, he became bored.

“Yes, if I win three games in a row, you will not only keep me for lunch, you will keep me for dinner and stay the night, how about that?”

Mu Yifan said this and immediately winked at Zhan Beitian who was standing.

Zhan Beitian didn’t really expect, it had only been a few days, that Mu Yifan would change his mind about Grandpa, at this rate, I’m afraid it wouldn’t take a game of chess to get him to ask to stay.

Zhan Guoxiong agreed readily: “No problem, we have plenty of room for the Zhan family.”

Mu Yifan immediately said: “Then I’ll take the room next to Beitian.”

“If you win three games in a row, you can have Beitian’s room if you want, I’ll make him give it up.”

“No need to give up, no need to give up.” said Mu Yifan, waving his hand quickly.

He took the room next door, just to sneak into Zhan Beitian’s room, if he gave it up, what was the point?

When Zhan Beitian saw Mu Yifan’s face as if he wanted to sleep in his room, he said with an amused look in his eyes: “You’re a good boy.”

At this point, Cai Yuan came out and said: “Master, you want to play chess, wait until Little Young Master and Mr Mu have had their breakfast.”

“Yes.” Zhan Guoxiong nodded.

A short while later, a maid came out with a large and small bowl of noodles and placed them on the table.

Mu Yifan and Mu Qingtian go to the dining room to have breakfast, Zhan Beitian and Zhan Guoxiong discuss things in the hall.

“Is Grandpa, the national researcher who used to study zombies, still alive?” Zhan Beitian asks.

Zhan Guoxiong wrinkled his brow and said: “Only three researchers are alive, the rest are either dead, or infected and locked up in the research lab.”

He looked at Zhan Beitian and said with a baffled face: “Why do you ask?”

“I’m looking for a few researchers to work on the zombie virus, to develop a potion that will neutralize the virus in the zombie’s body, or an inhibitor that will prevent the virus from spreading when the zombie scratches, otherwise, in the long run, we too will be extinct.”

Zhan Guoxiong nodded, agreeing with Zhan Beitian: “I’ll see if I can get the researchers back but it’s a bit difficult to develop a potion now, after the end of the world, many drugs are not available, they may not be.  It’s not always possible to develop them.”

“We won’t know the results until we try.” Zhan Beitian looked at the restaurant man and said: “What is Nantian up to now? I’ve been back for days, I haven’t seen him.”

The reason for his return, apart from finding someone to research a cure for the zombie virus and spending time with his grandfather, was to solve the problem of the Zhan family and the Mu family and the most important person now was Zhan Nantian.

“He, huh? “I can count the number of times I’ve seen him since half a year ago and, every time he comes back, he’s in a hurry. I don’t know how long it’s been since I’ve had a chat with an old man.”

Zhan Beitian asked with a wry smile: “Where are Second Uncle and Second Aunt? Don’t they know what Nantian is up to either?”

Zhan Guoxiong shook his head and said: “The boy became strange about half a year ago, before the end of the world, he lost contact with us once, we were so worried, he came back and told us that he was exploring the mountains with his friends, there was no signal there, so, he couldn’t communicate with us. No signal, so, no contact with us.”

He sighed and said: “The boy is becoming more and more unreliable, he never used to worry about anything, he would tell us in advance, now he is secretive, he doesn’t tell us anything, you don’t know, after he came back from the mountains, he got sick.”

“What illness?”

“They say it’s red eye, wears sunglasses every day, so as not to spread it to others, yes, his body gets cold, so, wears gloves in the heat, I didn’t see it myself, all this is what your Second Uncle said, it’s all healed now. Uncle said, it’s all over now, don’t worry.”

Zhan Guoxiong said and suddenly thought of something and asked: “I see Mu Mu wears gloves all the time is he not well too, otherwise, in the heat, why would he wear gloves?”

Zhan Beitian’s eyes moved slightly and he said: “He is not well.”

Grandpa’s words reminded Mu Mu of the bone cancer, I don’t know if it can be cured, should we remove it while we’re still zombies, we have the power to heal.

Zhan Guoxiong looked at Mu Yifan who was playing with the child and said: “But, he looked so lively, he doesn’t look sick.”

“He has bone cancer, you can’t see it on the surface.” Zhan Beitian didn’t want to continue the conversation, so he turned away: “Grandpa, I don’t think we’ve had dinner together as the Zhan family for a while?”

“No, they’re both so busy looking for supplies, they don’t know how to spend time with an old man like me and don’t think about the fact that I don’t have much time left in the world.”

Zhan Guoxiong grumbled but knew in his heart that his children were too busy, for the sake of the Zhan family.

“You will live a long life and I will spend more time with you at home these days and, I want to ask Nantian to come back and ask him about Mu Yihang.”

Zhan Guoxiong thought it was important for both families to get to the bottom of this, otherwise, what would happen to his grandson’s and grandson’s mother, so, he didn’t stop Dao: “Go ahead.”

At that moment, Mu Yifan ran over to Dao Dao: “Grandpa, I’m full, I can play chess with you now.”
