SFTAB: Ch 24

The next day the two went to the yard to dig back a few large buckets of soil, and plan to plant all the seeds they brought back.

    Jiang Miaomiao’s planting level is limited to bean sprouts, the other is half-knowledge.

    Lu Qiming is inferior to her, completely groping.

    According to understanding, the seeds must be planted in the soil, and the rhizomes of the narcissus must be soaked in water.

    Jiang Miaomiao filled a washbasin with water, threw all the garlic-like daffodils in, and placed them in a dark and shaded place. He couldn’t help but asked

    worriedly : “We two laymen are fooling around like this. What should I do if it breaks?” The

    seeds are so precious that she has been distressed for a long time.

    Lu Qiming’s tone is relaxed.

    “If it breaks, go to the flower and bird market to get it. There are so many.”

    She was curious about the place in his mouth.

    “What is the flower and bird market like? Besides flowers, are there birds?”

    Lu Qiming thought for a while, “You are so interested. If you go with me another day, you can see it with your own eyes.”

    Jiang Miaomiao grew up so big. I’ve never been to such a place before, and after what he said, he really became interested.

    After two days, they finished everything they needed to do, and there was nothing else to do, so she urged Lu Qiming to take herself to the flower and bird market.

    The two put on protective clothing and were ready to go out, when a new member of the family suddenly came out and wanted to follow.

    It is too small, has no self-protection ability, is frightened and likes to scream, what if it attracts zombies?

    They can’t ignore their safety and save their lives to save it.

    Jiang Miaomiao went to the kitchen to take a ham sausage and peeled it to eat, in an attempt to make it stay behind by the allure of delicious food.

    Jiang Fleur was really attracted and ate very happily.

    But when they moved their steps and tried to sneak away quietly, it raised its head especially keenly, discarded the ham, and followed it with swaying heads and tails.

    This is not picking up a dog to go home, but picking up a follower, where to go and where to go.

    Jiang Miaomiao looked helplessly at the dog holding his calf and didn’t let go, and thought of another way.

    Soft ones are not good, only hard ones.

    Or, trick it into the room upstairs and lock it up?

    She was still hesitating, and Lu Qiming, who was standing next to her, suddenly said,

    “It’s better to take it with me.”

    She turned her head back in surprise.


    “Well, it is also a family member, of course it should be brought.”

    He bent down as he said, picked up Jiang Rourou, and supported it with his palm.

    He has big hands and looks like an adult holding a child’s toy, with a kind of inexplicable warmth and cuteness.

    Jiang Miaomiao admired him more and more, closing the door and saying:

    “I used to think you were selfish and cold, but I didn’t expect it to be really kind…”

    Lu Qiming didn’t listen to her, walked to the window, and stretched out a hand. Entering the gap of the security window, opened the window, and stuffed Jiang Rourou with his backhand.

    The latter fell on the floor of the living room and screamed.

    He closed the window and clapped his hands triumphantly.

    “Just stay with you.” Don’t

    worry if you are annoying at home, and want to bother them when you go out?

    Want to be beautiful.

    Jiang Miaomiao: “…”

    Lu Qiming supported the bicycle, straddling his long legs, stepping on the pedals to lift his chin gracefully.

    “Come up.”

    She walked over, sat down and put her arms around his waist, and couldn’t help saying:

    “It’s shameless, even dogs cheat.”

    “Then you still ride in shameless people’s car?”

    “There is only one car. What

    can I do?” “You can run by.”

    Jiang Miaomiao looked at the back of his head and gritted his teeth. A few minutes later, he suddenly shouted:


    Lu Qiming asked unexpectedly:

    ” Are you really going to run? I don’t mind.”

    She doesn’t run, she is not a horse.

    But the reason why he dares to be so arrogant is that he can only be carried by her because of her?

    Jiang Miaomiao pushed him away and grabbed the handlebar.

    “Go to the back.”

    Lu Qiming was surprised.

    “No, you want to carry me?”

    With her thin legs like bamboo shoots, can she step on her pedals?

    Jiang Miaomiao raised his eyebrows.

    “Why, look down on people?”

    “No no, you come here.”

    He gave up the throne and retreated to the back seat, smiling so hard he could not hide.

    Seeing him like this, Jiang Miaomiao wanted to show it even more. He held the bicycle steady and stepped on his feet hard.

    The body swayed and just didn’t move forward.

    Lu Qiming shook his head and sighed.

    “Oh, no…”

    “Are you a pig? So heavy.”

    “I said I was shameless, and I didn’t scold you when I

    drove you.” Jiang Miaomiao stopped talking and stomped on his feet. Finally, the buttocks left the triangle seat, and the weight of the whole person was pressed up, and then he reluctantly moved the car.

    The distance that was once disapproving is as far away today as learning from the west, surrounded by greenery and beautiful scenery, but she has no time to appreciate it.

    She imagined that she was a camel Xiangzi, with plenty of physical strength and superb driving skills, able to reach her destination quickly.

    But in fact, she worked hard for a long time and didn’t even ride out of the community.

    Lu Qiming sat back comfortably, with his arms around her thin waist, his feet on the iron shell outside the tires, his knees bent, spread out to the sides, like a large human-shaped cricket.

    “Look, another zombie has surpassed us.”

    “…” Jiang Miaomiao couldn’t bear his ridicule, gritted his teeth and stomped on… too tired, he lay down on the car.

    Lu Qiming squeezed her shoulders pretendingly.

    “Don’t worry, take your time. The flower and bird market is more than ten kilometers away from here. If we walk over, it will be enough for a long time, and you can ride a bicycle for a day.”

    God, let this guy shut up!

    Jiang Miaomiao shouted in his heart.

    Lu Qiming saw that she was really depressed, so he stopped joking and cheered her up seriously.

    “Riding a bicycle is to pay attention to methods, and you can’t use brute force. Especially in the first few times, you ride faster, step on an inertia, and it will become easier and easier in the back.”

    She couldn’t understand.

    “How to step on inertia?”

    “I teach you, come, hold the handlebars…”

    Lu Qiming followed his instructions. She followed his instructions and did it step by step. In the end, she really rode.

    Although the speed is still not fast, only not much faster than walking, she can finally ride out of the community smoothly, which feels much less effort than before.

    Facing the still gentle sunshine at eight o’clock in the morning, she raised the corners of her mouth, and her voice became more pleasing.

    “Lu Qiming, I think you are a very good person, but sometimes…”

    From the corner of his eye, the light from the corner of his eye swept across the glass doors of the roadside shop, and Jiang Miaomiao suddenly fell silent.

    Lu Qiming waited for a long time before coming to another sentence, and asked, “Sometimes what happened?”

    She looked at the reflection on the glass, wondering whether to be angry or to laugh.

    Lu Qiming’s legs are very long, so he can easily step on the ground, and follow the rhythm of her pedals, step by step.

    She rode for ten minutes, which means…he walked in this strange posture for ten minutes?

    Isn’t he tired?

    Lu Qiming didn’t realize that she had found it, and she was still walking, using her long legs to drive the bicycle forward.

    After a while, he also saw the glass door, met her gaze, shook his body, and quickly retracted his leg.

    Jiang Miaomiao stopped and gave up his position.

    “I’m not riding anymore, come on.”

    He thought she was angry and praised carefully.

    “I think you rode very well.”

    She smiled bitterly, switched to the back seat, and put her arms around his waist, her face was covered by a protective suit against his broad and warm back.

    “I want to get there soon.”

    Lu Qiming didn’t know whether he believed it or not, and took the bicycle and continued to ride.

    His speed is more than twice as fast as hers. When driving, the wind keeps blowing on his face, and he feels cool through the protective clothing.

    Jiang Miaomiao has taken a leisurely look at the scenery. The deserted city has a special sense of beauty. The green belt is not taken care of, but it grows more vibrant than before.

    She saw the peach tree she had coveted for a long time, looked intently for a while, and squeezed the muscles of Lu Qiming’s waist.


    Lu Qiming stopped, saw her jump down, stood on tiptoe under the tree, and picked off a small green and white peach.

    “Are you familiar?” He looked at her with excitement and expressed doubt.

    “Just take a bite.”

    Jiang Miaomiao took out a paper towel from his small shoulder bag with the chainsaw, wiped off the prickly fluff on the outside of the peach, peeked around, and saw that there were no zombies within ten meters, and put on the mask. Pulled it down a little bit, took a quick bite of the peach and put it back on.

    Lu Qiming looked at her expectantly.

    The peaches are small and hard, and the taste is extremely sour.

    Jiang Miaomiao’s face wrinkled with food, but couldn’t help laughing happily after swallowing.

    She hasn’t tasted the unique refreshing taste of fruit for a long time.

    Bananas, oranges, pineapples…These things that were previously available to buy casually are now a hard-to-reach luxury for her, and she can only look for them in fruit candy.

    “How is it?” Lu Qiming asked.

    “It’s delicious, I’ll pick one for you to taste?”

    He shook his head, his eyes fell on her hand.

    Jiang Miaomiao understood what he meant and handed Taozi over.

    He took off his mask and was about to bite at a place she hadn’t eaten. But when he saw her small and neat tooth marks on the peach flesh, he didn’t know which nerve was wrong, and bit down on her tooth marks.

    Jiang Miaomiao’s eyes rounded, his face flushed instantly.

    Lu Qiming’s heartbeat was also a bit fast, and he chewed a few times cheeky.

    “Not yet ripe.”

    “Yeah, let them grow longer.” The

    bitten peaches were as hot as a soldering iron, and she hurriedly threw them away, sitting back in the car without daring to speak any more.

    Upon arriving at the flower and bird market, the picture was different from what she had imagined.

    She thought it would be like a vegetable market. There are many stalls in a big shed, and the goods are placed on the stalls for people to choose.

    It was actually a long and narrow street with shops on both sides, and a big sign was erected at the entrance of the street, which read XX Flower and Bird Market.

    It used to be very lively here, but now it’s similar to other places, and there is no living person in sight.

    There are many broken flower pots scattered on the ground. Common pets such as tortoises, rabbits, and guinea pigs have not escaped the claws of zombies, and mutilated corpses with only half of their bites can be seen everywhere.

    Birds are more fortunate, hanging on high places, they can’t eat.

    But because there was no one to feed for too long, he had starved to death, and the corpse was stinking in the cage.

    Several zombies squatted in a shop four or five meters away, not knowing what they were eating, their mouths full of black blood. Because they smelled the same kind of breath, I didn’t pay attention to them.

    The picture is bleak and cruel, but Jiang Miaomiao still feels nothing in vain.

    Just to her left, in a flower shop, several pots of rose flowers bloomed in full bloom.

    This is a view that cannot be seen in the villa.

    “It’s so beautiful.”

    She walked over and took a closer look, touching the delicate petals with her gloved hands, wishing to move home now.

    Lu Qiming suggested, “

    Take a few more pots and put them in the cart.” “Can you? But we already have flowers.”

    Although the branches are still bare now, the leaves have not grown.

    Lu Qiming said: “It’s no one cares about it here. Sooner or later, it’s dying. It’s better to take it back and enjoy it for a few more days.”

    “It makes sense.”

    She picked up the best-driving pot and walked towards the bicycle.

    The flowerpot itself is very heavy, filled with soil, and there are many leaves, and the weight is considerable. Jiang Miaomiao held it very hard.

    Lu Qiming took it and said to her:

    “You come to choose, I will move, so faster.”

    She was not ashamed, but this is indeed the best way to match, so she said thank you, and turned to choose flowers.

    It was early summer and many flowers were in full bloom.

    They picked two pots of rose, two pots of dahlia, one pot of peony, and one water lily.

    Lu Qiming ran back and forth many times, and when he was about to go back to move the last pot, he saw Jiang Miaomiao standing under a pot of white spider plants, and a zombie was approaching her staggeringly.

    He wanted to tell her to go away, and worried that the loud voice would attract more zombies, so he quickened his pace and wanted to help.

    When he was about to arrive, Jiang Miaomiao turned his head and saw the zombies close at hand, his small face paled with fright in an instant, and he covered his mouth and whispered.

    The zombie determined that she was a prey, and rushed toward her even more enthusiastically.

    She picked up her shoulder bag and turned on the chainsaw switch, and she closed her eyes and stabbed indiscriminately.

    The zombie was unprepared, was cut off by her, fell to the ground and turned into two pieces, convulsing constantly.

    Jiang Miaomiao didn’t notice, and still stabbed desperately with the chainsaw until Lu Qiming held her hand and his familiar voice rang in his ears.

    “It’s okay.”

    She stopped now, opened her eyes with lingering fears, and saw the zombies that had been divided in two, turned around and threw into his arms, crying.

    “That zombie is so terrible, woo…”

    “You are terrible, looking soft and weak, more fierce than a murderous demon.”

    “You are a murderer!”

    She punched him, but because of his Relaxed a little jokingly.

    “The weather is hot and sweaty, they are easy to find us, let’s go.”

    Lu Qiming escorted her to the outside, the zombie’s upper body suddenly jumped and bit his arm.

    Jiang Miaomiao was caught off guard and froze in shock.

    He cursed in a low voice, drew a fruit knife out of nowhere, pried open the zombie’s mouth, and opened it three or two times.

    The zombies were completely silent, and the floor was covered with blood.

    A big hole was bitten out of his arm, and bright red blood flowed from the damaged part of the protective suit.

    The zombies in the distance smelled the smell and looked up.

    Jiang Miaomiao looked at his wound, so shocked that he couldn’t say the whole thing.

    “Your hand…you…”

    He pulled the quick plastic sheet casually, wrapped it around his wrist a few times, and said hurriedly:

    “It’s too dangerous outside, go back and talk about it.”

    Lu Qiming walked forward quickly, Jiang Miaomiao dumbfounded. The ground followed behind him.

    After walking a few steps, she suddenly recovered, ran to the bicycle and saw the rope connecting the trolley with a chainsaw.

    He wondered, “Don’t you want these flowers?”

    “It’s too heavy, it’s important to go back.”

    There is a wound on the other party’s body. If the zombies smell blood, the two will be torn apart.

    Lu Qiming looked at her with complicated eyes and rode on his bicycle.

    Jiang Miaomiao quickly climbed to the back seat, put his arms around his waist and told him that he was ready to go.

    He had a severe hand injury and was so painful that he could not grasp the handlebars firmly, and rammed into a nearby shop crookedly after riding a few meters.

    Jiang Miaomiao hurriedly jumped out of the car, stabilized the front of the car, and quickly said:

    “I’ll sit in the front.”

    “But you can’t step on it.”

    “I know, so you step on it.”

    Perhaps the wound was too painful to affect his thinking, and Lu Qiming was stunned. It took a few seconds to understand what she meant, and he switched to the back seat.

    Jiang Miaomiao grasped the handlebars of the car to maintain the correct direction.

    Lu Qiming’s long legs come in handy, and he can step on the pedals even in the back seat.

    The two tried their best to rush home quickly.

    The smell of blood spread in the air, and many zombies followed the bicycles and chased them.



    Don’t be bitten to death!

    Jiang Miaomiao’s eyes were red anxiously, and she wanted to jump down and run with her bicycle.

    The number of zombies is increasing, hundreds to thousands, closely following behind, getting closer and closer to them.

    Finally, the two rushed to escape into the villa before being caught by the zombies. Before they even had time to breathe, they hurriedly closed the door and the window, daring not to leave a gap.

    The zombies wandered outside the house, eagerly trying to come in.

    Lu Qiming sat on the sofa, his skin pale due to excessive blood loss.

    Jiang Miaomiao brought the medicine kit, opened his protective clothing, unscrewed a bottle of alcohol and poured it on his wound.

    Lu Qiming trembled with pain and cold sweat, but he didn’t cry out, staring into her eyes and asked,

    “Are you afraid of me being infected?”

    She kept moving.


    “What are you going to do? Get me out?”

    “Wait until the symptoms appear…what about the medicine?”

    A bottle of 500ml of alcohol was all poured out, and his clothes, sofa, and floor were all wet.

    Jiang Miaomiao wanted to find some anti-inflammatory drugs, but he couldn’t find it because he was too anxious.

    Lu Qiming held her hand and whispered:

    “I won’t be infected, don’t be afraid.”

    She gave him a blank look.

    “You said you wouldn’t be infected if you didn’t get it? Are you a God? What a joke.”

    He smiled bitterly, unable to explain, only said:

    “I really won’t be okay.”

    She didn’t have the time to pay attention to him, and raised the medicine box. Pour down, find what you want in a pile of commonly used medicine, and apply it to his wound.

    This medicine is more irritating than alcohol, and Lu Qiming breathed in cold air with pain.

    After he finally got over it, he found that Jiang Miaomiao had brought a fruit knife and pointed it at his wrist.

    He quickly withdrew it back.

    “What do you want to do?”

    “The meat on your wound is in contact with the zombie’s teeth, so you have to cut it off.”

    She didn’t know how to prevent infection, and it didn’t say anything in the original text. But when I visited the forum before, I remember someone said that if you are bitten by a snake, cut off the meat as soon as possible to prevent the spread of toxins and reduce the probability of poisoning.

    The principle of zombies should be similar?

    Lu Qiming’s head shook into a rattle.

    “Don’t cut!”

    “What do you do if you get infected if you don’t cut it? Compared to your life, what is this bit of meat?”

    “If I really get infected, cutting the meat will be useless.”

    Jiang Miaomiao stopped, thinking seriously.

    “That’s right, after being bitten for so long, the virus has spread in the body long ago, we must have…”

    She moved her eyes and landed on his shoulder.


    Chop off your arm, I’ll get the chainsaw.” She ran back to the door, picked up her small chainsaw, turned on the switch, and wanted to chop his arm.

    Holding his injured hand, Lu Qiming rolled over and hid behind the sofa.

    “Even if you don’t believe that I won’t be infected, you have to observe it for at least two days. When you come up, chop your arms. If I survive and become disabled, you can support me?”

    Jiang Miaomiao stood there, unable to understand.

    “Why do you keep saying that you will not be infected?”

    “…My premonition.”


    “Even if I am really infected, I must take the initiative to leave here when I am still conscious, and will not stay to harm you

    Yes .” Lu Qiming made a vow.

    But what she was worried about was not that he would bite herself, but…

    well, forget it.

    Jiang Miaomiao put down the chainsaw and rummaged in the medicine pile.

    “Apply some more medicine.” If you

    get pierced by a nail, you may get tetanus, not to mention the smelly mouth of the zombie.

    Lu Qiming looked at her cautiously, and she picked up the chainsaw and chopped her hand again.

    He didn’t have such worries before, but after witnessing her cut the zombie in two, it was really hard to say.

    After a while, he saw that she had indeed given up the idea, and then he relaxed and sat on the sofa.


    Jiang Rourou circled under the window, restless.

    Jiang Miaomiao helped him clean up the wound and wrapped it with a bandage. Due to the unfamiliar technique, it was wrapped like a pig’s knuckle.

    But neither of them can take care of that much, so they walked to the window and looked out.

    The zombies have not left yet, and they have not seen a living person for several months. They suddenly smelled of blood, like a long drought in the rain, and they would not leave.

    Anti-theft windows are a layer of protection, but the degree of security is limited.

    After all, it is only made of ordinary stainless steel. If they attack with enough energy, they will last for three minutes at most.

    Jiang Miaomiao took the disinfectant, sprayed the doors and windows and other gaps, and sealed them with plastic wrap. He would rather be suffocated in the house than be discovered by them.

    It can be expected that they will not want to go out normally for at least a week.

    Lu Qiming returned to the sofa and felt quite self-blame.

    “Blame me for taking it lightly, if I didn’t get bitten.”

    She turned her head and looked at him for a while, spraying the place where he had been sitting with disinfectant.

    Lu Qiming avoided.

    “? What are you doing”

    . “You have to isolation,”

    Jiang Miao Miao said: “go back to your room, over at least two weeks and then come out.”

    Lu Qiming speechless, “I really have not been infected.”

    “In the end there, I have to wait for the end of the isolation to be sure.”

    She showed her unprecedented calmness and determination, and drove him upstairs, locked him in his small room, and put the key in her pocket.

    Sitting on the bed, Lu Qiming couldn’t smile, patted the door and said,

    “Somehow you can bring the computer in.”

    Otherwise, he would go crazy after shutting it down for half a month.

    Jiang Miaomiao gave him the computer without saying a word, closed the door again, put on gloves, picked up the disinfectant, and disinfected the entire villa.

    The zombies outside the window are too noisy, the wound on the hand hurts, and the computer is unhappy.

    Lu Qiming played for a while, lay down on the bed, heard a buzzing sound in his sleep, opened his eyes, looked for the source of the sound, and found that it was the door of the room.

    “What are you doing?”

    Jiang Miaomiao didn’t speak, cutting the door with a chainsaw.

    It didn’t take long for her to cut a hole the size of a laptop computer on the solid wood door.

    Lu Qiming squatted behind the cave and looked out, and a small washbasin was stuffed in.

    There is a bowl of noodles, a carton of milk, and a few bezoar detox tablets.

    Jiang Miaomiao said: “This door will not open until the quarantine is over.”

    Lu Qiming: “…what do I do when I go to the bathroom?”

    This is indeed a problem. There are no windows in his room and it is unrealistic to urinate outside the window. .

    She has to find a perfect solution.

    Jiang Miaomiao carried the chainsaw downstairs to find a way. Lu Qiming sat on the floor of the room, looked at the doorway and then at the noodles, feeling like a dream.

    I was actually bitten?


    Lao Lu: Is this the feeling of being kept in captivity?
