SFTAB: Ch 2

On the third day of the apocalyptic outbreak, most of the citizens retreated and the urban public system was paralyzed. Buses, subways, and high-speed rail planes are no longer in operation.

    On the tenth day of the apocalyptic outbreak, all the living people have escaped from the city, and only zombies can be seen wandering on the streets.

    On the twentieth day of the apocalyptic outbreak, the electricity and hydraulic systems were paralyzed, food and corpses began to rot, the temperature rose, and the air became unsmeltable.

    On the 30th day of the apocalyptic outbreak, the suburban chemical plant exploded due to no maintenance. The fire spread to the city center and burned nearly half of the houses in the city. It was not extinguished until the heavy rain the next day.

    On the fortieth day of the apocalyptic outbreak, as many as ten million zombies wandered in the dilapidated city, some were still searching for survivors, and some had gradually spread to the outskirts of the city.

    –

    Ten o’clock, Jiang Miu Miu woke up.

    She took off her blindfold and earplugs, and opened the curtains to let the sunlight spill in.

    There are three zombies wandering under the window. They have not left for several days. I don’t know if they smelled her from the vent, and they are trying to get in.

    Jiang Miaomiao ignored them, walked into the bathroom, took a glass of water from a pure bucket, and started brushing his teeth.

    The end of the world has started for almost a month and a half. According to the progress in the original text, other cities should be similar to this at this moment. The survivors followed the army to escape to a safe area, and there were approximately 600,000 healthy humans remaining in the world.

    The material consumption is slower than she thought. As of today, she has only used 10 barrels of purified water, 80 barrels of tap water, 20 boxes of instant noodles, 10 boxes of self-heating hot pot, 10 bags of bread, 6 bottles of chewing gum, 8 boxes of paper, half Bags of rice, there are a lot of snacks and sundries.

    Together, these things accounted for only one-tenth of her total inventory. The only thing that consumes faster is fuel, because she knew that the natural gas pipeline would be damaged, and that there were too many gas tanks stored and afraid of explosion, so she only bought three cans of gas. I cook every day at home, and now I have used up one can. After all of them are used up, they can only be replaced by alcohol and diesel.

    But even so, the situation is much better than she expected.

    These days, she has not treated herself badly, what she wants to eat, what she wants to drink, and what she wants to drink, but only so much. It can be seen that if a person wants to live in the world, he does not need too many resources.

    The life without going to work and school is also very comfortable. Every day I wake up naturally, after eating, I read a book by the window, look at the zombies, and pass the time.

    She also made a mistake, that is, the generator that she had previously spent 3000 yuan to buy.

    At that time, I only thought that the power outage was painful, but I forgot that the sound of the generator was loud when it was working.

    The zombies in this world have strong hearing and strong sense of smell, fast speed and great strength. It can be said that in addition to the appearance, they are all enhanced versions of humans, which are difficult to deal with.

    The circuit was damaged more than half a month ago. When she started the generator for the first time, the noisy sound attracted nearly a hundred zombies. The thin walls of the villa probably lasted less than three hours under their siege. She was so frightened that she quickly turned it off, added a few bottles of 84 disinfectant to a bucket of tap water, poured it out from the window, and waited for a long time before the zombies gradually dispersed. open.

    Since then, she has never dared to use the generator anymore, and the 3,000 yuan big guy just left idle like this, which made her heartache.

    What is even more difficult is that the villa has never been powered up, and she has no backup power supply due to economic constraints. After only a few power banks are used up, mobile phones and computers are all turned into decorations, and the same is true for refrigerators and air conditioners.

    She threw the meat, fruits, eggs and other items that need to be kept fresh in the refrigerator directly out of the window, so as not to pollute the air in the house when they rot.

    There are two useful electronic products left on hand.

    One is a solar flashlight with super power storage, and the other is a kindle, which she didn’t care much about before. A bunch of e-books were downloaded in it, and only started to use when the phone and computer were out of power.

    She only watches for half an hour a day, turns on the flight mode, and now has half of the battery.

    Since he is not dead, keep on living.

    After washing and going downstairs, Jiang Miaomiao specially cooked snail noodles and added two marinated eggs in order to reward him for living another night.

    The fragrance floated out from the gap in the window, and the zombies were a little farther away.

    After eating the snail noodles, her mouth was red so hot, she was sitting in a chair drinking water and arranging today’s time.

    She has pen and paper. Let’s practice calligraphy in the morning.

    Make a fried rice with ham sausage at noon. The fresh vegetables are gone, and there are some dehydrated ones, which can be soaked and added to the fried rice.

    The afternoon is relatively long, she reads e-books for half an hour, and then plays poker solitaire.

    The night is the hardest. Without sunlight, the zombies will be more active, howling in the community, listening to strange people.

    In the past, Jiang Miaomiao had a mobile phone, and he wore earplugs to sing and listen, ignoring the zombies outside.

    Now that the music can’t be played, she can’t make any movement, she wants to ignore them and can only rely on her concentration.

    When she went to the supermarket to make a big purchase, she picked up some paint. So after dinner, I squatted in the living room to practice painting.

    She has no talent in drawing, and if she doesn’t use anything as a reference, she can’t write at all.

    Fortunately, there are several INS-style paintings hanging on the walls of the villa. Jiang Miaomiao practiced against each other every day. After practicing for several days, he can now draw three-point similarity.

    Finished painting slowly, and it was twelve o’clock in the evening.

    Jiang Miaomiao brushed her teeth and took a bath, changed her pajamas, and stood by the window and said goodbye to the zombies.

    She regretted it. It would be great if she bought two dogs with the money to buy a generator. It would be comfortable to live alone for ten days, to live for twenty days to be chic, and to live for 30 days to be lonely.

    Living an extra day without electricity or internet is self-abuse.

    Going into the bed and closing his eyes, the howling of the zombies was isolated by earplugs.

    Jiang Miaomiao has been dreaming, groggy.

    Suddenly, there was a rubbing sound in the darkness. Because the distance is too close, even the earplugs can’t stop it.

    She opened her eyes suddenly and looked at the ceiling, making sure that the sound was coming from above.

    Could it be that the zombie has climbed to the top floor and entered through the ventilation duct?

    The villa uses central air-conditioning, and the room has vents. It takes minutes for the other party to find the bedroom.

    Is he finally dying? With her small arms and legs, there is no chance of winning against the zombies.

    Jiang Miaomiao has been preparing for a month, but he is still a little nervous when he is really facing death.

    Does she want to hide? Or just open the gas tank and kill them all?

    No, she has to eat two more delicious bites.

    Jiang Miaomiao didn’t wear any shoes, grabbed the flashlight and ran downstairs. So when Lu Qiming walked down the stairs, he saw a beam of light in the living room where the bucket occupied most of the space. A girl in pajamas stood in the light, holding a bag of beef jerky and chewing.

    The light from bottom to top made her look like a ghost, more terrifying than a zombie.

    The girl saw him too, her eyes widened in surprise.

    “You, you are a human?”

    yelled after her again, “God, are you injured? Why is there so much blood on your body?”

    Then she hid behind the chair.

    “Are you infected? Don’t come here!”

    Lu Qiming: “…”

    There was an awkward silence in the air. Jiang Miaomiao hid his head for a long time, and found that the other party had no intention of answering at all. Only he was making a fuss and poking out his head in a daze.

    “Hey, are you still a human?” The

    other party glanced at her, seeming to disdain to answer, glanced around coldly, and asked after seeing the scene of the living room roughly:

    “This is your home?”

    His voice was very tired, as if I only experienced a fierce battle. His face was bloodstained, and he couldn’t see his facial features. All he knew was that he was tall and his hands and feet were very slender.

    Jiang Miaomiao nodded, with caution in his eyes.

    It is not uncommon for survivors to kill the same kind to fight for supplies in the last days. Who knows whether the opponent is a good person or a bad person.

    She couldn’t beat the zombies, and she couldn’t beat him either. If he really wants to kill people and make more money… I hope at least let her finish the beef jerky.

    The man asked again: “How many people live here?” Here

    comes, are you testing her?

    Jiang Miaomiao answered without hesitation: “Four.”

    “Where are the others?”

    “I went out to find a power bank, and there is no electricity at home.” The

    other party looked suspiciously, “There are so many zombies outside, they just ran out like this?”

    Jiang Miao Miao plausibly said, “My brother and dad were both policemen before, and my mother was on the women’s volleyball team. She has good skills and guns. She can get in and out freely among thousands of zombies. Besides, you just came in from the outside. Well, you are still alive, why can’t others live?” The

    man was convinced by her and stopped asking.

    Jiang Miaomiao saw that he didn’t intend to use force, so he was bolder.

    “Where did you come from? You don’t have any weapons. Didn’t the zombies bite you? What’s the matter with the blood?”

    The man ignored her, turned and walked upstairs, and asked as he walked, “Is there a wrench? Give me one.”

    Jiang Miaomiao was prepared for this basic tool . He took a wrench for him and found that the other party was back again. bedroom.

    After receiving the wrench, the man put it in his trouser pocket and jumped easily, grabbed the vent with both hands, and crawled in within two strokes.

    Jiang Miaomiao was curious about what he was going to do, and learned that he jumped twice, but unfortunately he was too short and jumped too low to be touched.

    She had to look down eagerly, and heard constant knocks from above.

    Just when she was worried that the zombies would be attracted by this, the man came back, sealed the vent and nailed it, and threw the wrench back to her.

    She caught it with both hands and asked in astonishment: “Are you not going to leave?” The

    door was blocked by her on the first day of the end of the world, and the vent was opened again, and there was no way out.

    Doesn’t this person want to stay and eat and drink?

    The man took a cigarette out of his pocket and smoked halfway before he said, “Your brother and dad are both policemen, but they don’t even know how to seal such a fragile vent. The central air-conditioning duct on the roof can climb in at any time. You After living for so long, is it good luck to get a vain family member?”

    Jiang Miaomiao flushed, holding the wrench and not talking.

    The smoke curled up, and the man squinted at her for a while, squeezed out the cigarette butt and asked:

    “Where is the bathroom? I need to take a shower.”

    She pointed to the direction, and the other party carried two buckets of water from the living room into it, as if he was calmly on his own. Like home.

    The sound of splashing water kept coming out, Jiang Miaomiao sat on the bed holding a flashlight, and suddenly realized that he might never think about being so comfortable in his future life.
