Yesterday, when he was driving on the mountain road, it was already at dusk. And now he had found out that the route was really like Wen Xiaotian had said, it had nothing at all. One or two farms could occasionally be seen. There were a Car Wash and Repair Shop along the road, and a restaurant next to it, with dirty windows and a sign saying, ‘Pickled fish’ and ‘Home cooking’. This kind of shops was dedicated to serving long-distance pa.s.sing drivers.
There were two large trucks parked on the open s.p.a.ce in front of the Car wash shop, the windows of the trucks were smashed with blood on the ground, but there was no driver in the car.
Jiang Liushi parked before the restaurant. Looking at the tightly closed old door with blood, he felt ghastlier.
"Jiang brother, you are going to..."Wen Xiaotian was frozen for a moment, seeing Jiang Liushi parking.
"I'll search for some food," Jiang Liushi said.
In the early days, fresh food wouldn’t rot. During this time, it was relatively easy for them to collect food. A few days later, fresh ingredients would rot, and they could only eat those anti-corrosion food in vacuum packaging. Although Jiang Liushi prepared some, they couldn’t miss the fresh ingredients.
"Find food? Is the food of this restaurant edible…"Wen Xiaotian said worriedly. Jiang Liushi smiled, he knew that Wen Xiaotian was worried that these ingredients would be contaminated with the virus. Jiang Liushi had gotten the information from the Sta.r.s.eed that before the outbreak of the virus, the world's food and water all carried the virus.
However, people like Jiang Liushi, who had suffered from the virus mutation, hadn’t to be afraid of the virus at all.
Of course, they still couldn’t be bit by zombies. Otherwise, the zombie which had been carrying the enhanced virus would infect them.
Jiang Liushi didn’t said that to Wen Xiaotian, because explaining was difficult. Therefore, he just said, "Take it easy, these ingredients are good."
"That... Do we really need to get off?" Wen Xiaotian timidly asked because it was extremely dangerous. But in the end of the world everything was dangerous! Especially looking for food, they had to take the risk of doing it.
Wen Xiaotian’s face was slightly pale. She was afraid. However, if Jiang Liushi needed her, she would be brave enough to get off.
"Hold on!" Jiang Liushi suddenly said.
"Ah?" Wen Xiaotian was frozen for a moment. She had not had time to say anything, hearing the roar of the car engine.
The minibus was like a raging bison and rushed out, directly hitting the door of the restaurant. The wooden door, along with the surrounding walls were all crashing down! Jiang Liushi was clear that the wall was simply too thin, so it wouldn’t withstand the collision. Actually, it was just a thin layer of metal, which was filled with the bubble, easy to be destroyed.
The wall fell and the whole roof was crumbling. Meanwhile, Jiang Liushi saw the scene inside the small restaurant. It was quite a b.l.o.o.d.y scene. Four zombies were lying on the ground, desperately scrambling for something. It was full of blood, internal organs and debris, and about five people were lying on the ground, it was not known how many bodies were actually there as Jiang Liushi couldn’t discriminate, surrounded by a pool of blood.
"OMG!" Wen Xiaotian could not help but start screaming, she immediately covered her mouth with her hand.
The scene was nauseating, but she had to start adapting. The zombies had stopped eating, and turned to see this minibus. Their eyes were scarlet, with their blood vessels protruding. Dripping blood and meat could be seen as they growled wildly rushing to the minibus.
Jiang Liushi didn’t say anything, pushing the pedal to the metal.
"Om - !!" The engine roared again, the minibus had hit the zombies and sent them flying to the wall.
The whole wall crumbled. The minibus pressed against the zombies till they hit the backyard walls. Flesh and blood splashed on the windshield, four zombies were killed by Jiang Liushi!
"Wooo--" Jiang Liushi took a deep breath. Watching the stains on the windshield, he hesitated for a bit, and then pressed the wiper. The wiper started wiping the windshield, after that washing liquid was sprayed out, diluting the blood, which was slowly swept down. Jiang Liushi was silently looking at all this, he seemed accustomed to bearing such a b.l.o.o.d.y and killing scene.
Wen Xiaotian bit her lips, standing behind Jiang Liushi, watching the blood being swept down, she didn’t know what to say. Jiang Liushi’s reaction was very calm. Wen Xiaotian knew that in order to survive they should be calm.
"I ... I'm going to find food." Wen Xiaotian suddenly woke up, volunteering to get off to find food. It was dangerous, but she should do something.
"I will open the door," Wen Xiaotian reminded. She didn’t push the door until Jiang Liushi had agreed. Letting Wen Xiaotian get off, Jiang Liushi had no alternative way because the Sta.r.s.eed could only be controlled by him. Even if she was in danger, Jiang Liushi could try his best to save her. The small restaurant was in a mess. Wen Xiaotian effortlessly pushed the broken plates, and found the kitchen freezer.
The freezer was filled with all kinds of ingredients, such as chicken, duck, fish, eggs and a lot of vegetables. It was enough to feed dozens of people for two or three days.
The freezer was too large to be moved in the minibus. Wen Xiaotian used clean plastic bags to pack the food little by little. Jiang Liushi’s minibus also had a small freezer, but the capacity was too small. It was not enough to store so much food. It seemed that some ingredients needed to be eaten quickly.
"Jiang brother, I would like to prepare dinner tonight." Wen Xiaotian had enough confidence in her cooking skills. She had begun cooking since very young. In order to be more efficient, she also specifically moved oil, salt and vinegar, a small gas stove and a wok. Although there was a small kitchen in the minibus, the hardware facilities were limited only to one pot and one stove.
She had totally moved the kitchen to the living room and was ready to cook there. In that way, the minibus was basically filled with things. Fortunately, Wen Xiaotian was pet.i.te. She was really hungry. Although she had cooked noodles last night, she thought that food was not going to be enough, so she hadn’t eaten much. Now with so many ingredients, she could enjoy eating.
"Okay." Jiang Liushi was also looking forward to it. It was already dark, so he wanted to take a break there. Seeing Wen Xiaotian so busy cooking, Jiang Liushi was really looking forward to the delicious meal.
The only flaw of the minibus was that its internal was too small. There was not enough s.p.a.ce for many pots and stoves. They could only overlap. In fact, many things in the minibus could be folded, such as tables and beds. If the s.p.a.ce could become a little bigger, they could store more gasoline and more food, adding more living facilities.
At that time, it would be the real mobile base. The sun had already set while Wen Xiaotian had prepared half of the food. The seductive scent attracted Jiang Liushi. He was busy preparing for the end of the world and had no time for eating. But then, suddenly …
"Roar—"As if a beast growled. The sound came from the distant darkness.
"What?" Jiang Liushi was scared!
That roar, in the quiet mountains, mixed with the wind, had brought a frightening feeling!
