SFTAB: Ch 38

 The dazzling sunlight stabbed people’s eyes with pain.

    It’s useless to stay here, so it’s better to find something to do for yourself.

    Jiang Miaomiao remembered the pasta that Lu Qiming had made for her before, and he turned out a handful of noodles and fumbled for the taste in his memory to make it.

    This took her almost an hour, and she was very satisfied with the results.

    Put the noodles in a beautiful plate, put a napkin on the table, put a knife and fork, and carve the ham sausage into small smiling faces and spread them on the edge of the plate.

    By this time it was more than five o’clock in the afternoon, and the sun gradually weakened.

    Is Lu Qi coming back soon?

    He only eats biscuits at noon, and when he sees the noodles on the table, he can’t wait to sit down and eat it up.

    The noodles were a bit spicy, so she opened the refrigerator and took out two bottles of iced drinks, unscrewed them, and placed them next to the dinner plate.

    After doing all this, Jiang Miaomiao hugged the dog and began to wait again.

    The sunset is on the west hills, and the sunset glow is gorgeous.

    She watched as the light disappeared little by little, from the full house bright to black so that she could not see her fingers.

    Lu Qiming has not returned yet.

    Jiang Rourou moved in her arms, and she became uneasy.

    Is something really wrong?

    She can’t wait any longer.

    Jiang Miaomiao thought of the scene he unlocked that day, found a fruit knife, and followed his steps.

    But Lu Qiming did it lightly, as if effortlessly stabbing the blade into the gap, she poked it for a long time, leaving only a few inconspicuous scratches.

    She doesn’t believe it!

    The same is the hand, how does it work for him?

    Jiang Miaomiao worked harder and harder to pick the lock, and Jiang Rourou, who was squatting behind him, suddenly screamed.

    She stopped and listened carefully.

    There was a sound of footsteps outside the door, from far to near.

    This voice is from Lu Qiming, with big steps and fast walking.

    Every time she went out together when she first met, she had to trot to keep up with him.

    He didn’t learn to slow down a bit until he got along for a long time.

    Lu Qiming is back!

    Jiang Miaomiao was overjoyed and looked at the door expectantly, wanting to hug him as soon as he came in.

    But then I remembered that when I went out this morning, the other party shut her inside and left alone without a word, and I suddenly lost my mood.

    They shut her down if they want, and leave if they want. She wasn’t angry at all, and she worried about him all day, how stupid.

    She is not waiting, go to bed!

    Jiang Miaomiao went back to the bedroom and got into the quilt, messing up the sheets, pretending to be sleeping all day.

    Soon, the locked door was opened, and Lu Qiming walked in.

    Jiang Rourou greeted him, and he asked in a low voice, “Where is Miaomiao?” The

    sound of footsteps came from the living room to the bedroom door, and the door was gently pushed open.

    Jiang Miaomiao shrank motionless under the covers, closing his eyes.

    Lu Qiming didn’t turn on the light, looked at her for a while in the moonlight, did not speak, put down the things in his hand, and went to take a shower lightly.

    The sound of water came out of the bathroom, and Jiang Miaomiao opened his eyes, sulking.

    Does he think he is so great and plan to do it again next time?

    Lu Qiming always took a bath very fast, and it was over in a few minutes. He opened the door and came out, ready to walk out in the dark.

    The light suddenly turned on, and Jiang Miaomiao stood beside the switch, looking at him with cold eyes.

    He was stunned, “Are you awake? Was it awakened by me?”

    She didn’t answer, but only asked: “Did you find diesel?”

    “I found it, but the generator was really useless. The tanker was too strong. , I pried for a day and didn’t pry open.”

    She snorted coldly, “The one who deserves it.”

    Lu Qiming looked at her cautiously, “Are you still angry?”

    “Angry? I’m not angry, I am. I don’t want to see you.”

    She went back to the bed and said while covering the quilt: “Don’t sleep in my room tonight, lest I wake up in the middle of the night and find myself locked in.”

    Lu Qiming knew she was really angry. , Immediately walked to the bed and lay on her stomach, holding her hands up to apologize.

    “Miaomiao, I really didn’t let you go because I was worried about you. If it’s safe outside, even if I go to the end of the world, I will definitely take you.”

    Jiang Miaomiao said: “But I have already said it. You can run by yourself when you are in danger, don’t worry about me.”

    He smiled bitterly.

    “How can I leave you alone? You are the person I like. Isn’t this embarrassing me?”

    Jiang Miaomiao said nothing, moved and sad.

    Lu Qiming put his chin on the back of her hand and blinked pitifully.

    “Don’t be angry, can you forgive me?”

    She snorted, turning aside her face and not looking at him.

    “Miaomiao, Miaomiao…”

    He held her fingers and kept shaking, telling his own day experience.

    “It’s really hot outside today. Not long after I went out, I met zombies and were chased by them. I finally found the gas station, but I couldn’t find the biscuits and water I brought. I

    didn’t eat at noon, and I haven’t had a drink until now. Water, I feel like heatstroke, so uncomfortable…”

    Jiang Miaomiao couldn’t help but glanced at him secretly.

    Under the light, his skin was black and red after being exposed to the sun for a whole day, and he couldn’t see how he looked.

    He would sell badly, she didn’t believe it.

    Jiang Miaomiao was still indifferent and refused to talk to him.

    Reluctantly, Lu Qiming let go of his hand and stood up.

    “Well, I’m going to bed next door tonight, you rest early.”

    After speaking, he walked out of the room, noticed the noodles that had cooled off on the table, and ran back happily.

    “This is for me, right? I knew you would forgive me.”

    Jiang Miaomiao rolled his eyes.

    “Who said that? I made it for dogs.”

    “…Wang Wang.”


    “Wow Wang Wang!”

    Lu Qiming yelled twice, and asked with a hippie smile: “Can I eat now? “

    Jiang Rourou, who was sleeping in the living room, raised his ears alertly-as if someone was robbing him of his job!

    Jiang Miaomiao had absolutely no choice but to get out of bed and take away the noodles.

    “I’m going to heat it up, you can sit down.”

    He smiled brightly, refused to sit, put his arms around her waist and didn’t let go, and the two heated the noodles like a Siamese baby.

    Lu Qiming was so hungry that he sat down at the table and started eating.

    Jiang Miaomiao put the drink that had returned to normal temperature back into the refrigerator, took two new bottles, handed him one, and warned him at the same time.

    “You are not allowed to do this in the future, otherwise I will just take the meat to pry open the window and climb out, and never come back.”

    His mouth was filled with noodles, speechless, and he nodded repeatedly.

    Jiang Miaomiao relaxed and sat opposite him, watching him eat while drinking a drink.

    The other party’s heroic eating looks like being hungry for three days. She couldn’t help asking:

    “You really didn’t eat at noon?”


    Jiang Miaomiao imagined that he was hungry alone, sweating like rain under the sun, tearing down the machine, and always vigilant. The appearance of the zombie’s attack made me feel distressed.

    “Aren’t you stupid? Come back quickly if you can’t pry it off. It’s so dangerous outside.”

    He swallowed what was in his mouth and smiled at her, with some ketchup on the corner of his mouth.

    “Didn’t I come back intact?”

    “This time, I’m not sure about the next time.”

    She commented, “Let’s stop looking for diesel fuel. Just tolerate the heat. Anyway, another month or two. The temperature will drop.”

    Lu Qiming thought for a while and nodded.

    “Okay.” The

    two of them finished their meal and were about to go to bed. Jiang Miaomiao looked at the vent above his head and suddenly said:

    “Let’s turn off the electricity.”

    Lu Qiming didn’t understand, “Why do I turn it off? It’s too hot to sleep. Feel.”

    “At night, it’s cooler than during the day. Just use a fan. The air conditioner and refrigerator are all turned off, and the unused electricity can be used to charge the chainsaw in the future.”

    She intends to live, so she has to prepare for the future.

    The chainsaw can save your life at critical moments, which is much more useful than enjoying it in vain.

    Lu Qiming disagreed, and forced her to bed.

    “Don’t think about it, sleep.”


    “You can bear to see me being exposed to the sun all day, and I still can’t sleep well at night?”

    Jiang Miaomiao had to give up and lay side by side in the cool room, and soon fell asleep.

    When I woke up in the morning, the generator had stopped working, and the air returned to its former dry heat.

    Jiang Miaomiao was listless, and yawned at breakfast to discuss today’s work arrangements.

    “The air is too dry, the mud in the basin cracks when it moves, and the freshly sprouted vegetables are about to die, so you have to take care of them.

    The things on the shelves have not been sorted for several days. In case the expired food swells and rots, It will affect the ones that have not expired next to you, so you have to clean them out.


    Lu Qiming responded um, as if he didn’t even listen, he suddenly grabbed her hand after breakfast.

    “Go, I’ll take you to the roof to see a good thing.”

    “Go to the roof?” It’s on the

    20th floor, and the roof is on the 80th floor.

    It’s so hot and you have to climb sixty floors. It’s desperate to think about it.

    Lu Qiming said:

    “Come with me, you won’t regret it.”

    She said so badly, she wanted to see what a good baby it was.

    The two each took a backpack, filled it with water and food, closed the doors and windows, and headed towards the top of the building.

    The higher the temperature, the higher the temperature. After reaching the 30th floor, the fire exit is the big oven, staying in it and sweating constantly.

    They had to stop and drink water to replenish their strength after walking for a while. The water they drank became sweat and was discharged, so they didn’t have to spend extra time on the toilet.

    It took nearly a morning to stop and go, and finally arrived at the top floor.

    The top floor is facing the midday sun, the heat waves are surging, and the light is dazzling.

    They came out of the corridor, feeling hot and painful on their skin.

    Jiang Miaomiao quickly took out the parasol and stretched it to cover the top of the two of them.

    The air is still hot, but finally there is no need to face the sun.

    “What do you want me to see?” She was tired like an eggplant that had been beaten by frost.

    Lu Qiming held her hand.

    “Come with me.”

    There are many facilities on the roof, such as generators, central air conditioners, reservoirs, etc., standing in a mess.

    They bypassed several huge reservoirs and came to a clearing.

    There are several large flat cardboard boxes on the ground with words on them.

    The sunlight refracted so strongly that Jiang Miaomiao couldn’t see clearly at first. When she got closer and squinted, she realized that the XX brand solar panel was printed on it.

    Solar energy? ? ?

    “How come there is this?” She turned her head in surprise and asked Lu Qiming.

    The latter’s T-shirt was soaked with sweat dripping from the edges, and it looked uncomfortable to look at, but his expression was very happy.

    “Guess.” The

    box is so new that it doesn’t look like it’s been exposed to the wind and sun. Could it be…

    Jiang Miaomiao hid behind him abruptly and looked left and right warily.

    “Is there anyone else in this building?”

    After all, it is a city, with tens of millions of people living in the past.

    Maybe someone had the same idea as her, instead of retreating with the troops, they stayed and found a safe place to stay.

    In case of encountering each other, will they fight because of the supplies?

    In the original text, even the survivors who followed the troop retreat have rioted more than once because of the shortage of supplies, and many people have died.

    She would rather live alone with Lu Qiming for more than ten years, rather than encounter such tricky things.

    It’s not good to kill, and it’s even worse if you don’t kill. It’s still quieter as it is now.

    She looked around and couldn’t find anyone, Lu Qiming’s ridicule came in her ear.

    “Are you stupid? Why do you think someone else put it?”

    “Who else did it? It can’t always be you.”

    Jiang Miaomiao frowned.

    He shrugged, an expression of “I am so helpless”.

    Jiang Miaomiao was shocked.

    “Where did you get it? When did you find it? Why didn’t I see it?” The

    question was thrown over like a firecracker, and he explained it methodically.

    “I’m not that stupid. Yesterday I found out that the tanker could not be turned on, so I went to look for it elsewhere. Did you see that building over there?”

    Lu Qiming pointed in a direction, Jiang Miaomiao looked over and raised his hand to cover it. In the eyes, he barely saw a tall silver building in the distance.

    It is a kilometer or two away from them. The straight one is not as high as the World Trade Building under your feet, but it has at least 40 or 50 floors.

    Lu Qiming said:

    “There is a company that specializes in solar energy in that building. This is what they have in their warehouse. It is on the 30th floor and it hasn’t been blistered. I brought a set and see if it can be installed.”

    Jiang Miaomiao suddenly realized.

    “No wonder you came back so late, I thought you had been prying the tanker.”

    He smiled and touched her head.

    Her eyes fell on the pile of things.

    “But how do you install it? Will you?”

    Lu Qiming said: “When I lived in a villa, I specially studied the solar power generation system. There are also installation instructions. It should be possible.”

    Jiang Miaomiao expressed doubt.

    “The power generation system is already installed. We just plug it in and use it. This one has to start from scratch.”

    He patted her shoulder.

    “Don’t worry, this little thing won’t bother me. You go back to the supermarket and promise to let you continue to blow on the air conditioner tomorrow.”

    After speaking, he took out a knife and opened the box, looking at a lot of things. Research the use of accessories.

    Jiang Miaomiao didn’t feel relieved and wanted to stay by and help.

    Lu Qiming had to drive her downstairs, so she had to leave her parasol and go back to the supermarket alone.

    In the evening, she made dinner and waited for Lu Qiming to come back to eat together, but the other party did not show up for a long time.

    Jiang Miaomiao had to pack the food in a fresh-keeping box, put it on his shoulders, holding the dog in one hand and the flashlight in the other, and went upstairs to look for him.

    She has walked back and forth today, plus the current sixty floors, which is equivalent to climbing one hundred and eighty floors in one day.

    When she walked out of the fire escape, she was so tired that she couldn’t straighten her waist.

    The bright moon was in the sky, and the cold moonlight fell on the top floor, and everything was clearly visible.

    Lu Qiming was still squatting in front of the pile of things, scratching his head and studying.

    The roof of the building was quite cool at night, and a breeze blew, Jiang Miaomiao recovered some strength and walked towards him.

    “You haven’t installed it yet? Let’s eat first.”

    He raised his head and frowned.

    “Why are you here?”

    “I’m afraid you will starve to death, White-eyed Wolf.”

    Lu Qiming didn’t feel it at first. He screamed when he smelled the fragrance of rice.

    He took the bowl and looked up at the sky.

    “It’s so late, you go to bed first.”

    “What about you?”

    “I’ll try again.”

    Jiang Miaomiao glanced at the semi-finished product he had pretended for the whole afternoon, and shook his head.

    “You’re not in this business, how can you say that you can install it after you install it? It’s better to forget it.”

    Lu Qiming stopped halfway through eating.

    “You don’t believe me?”

    “…Don’t be so sensitive, I’m just talking about the objective facts.”

    “The fact is that I will be able to install it.”

    Lu Qiming quickly finished the meal and drank half a bottle of mineral water in one breath. Wiped her mouth, hugged her over, kissed her, and patted her ass.

    “Hey, go home and sleep, and wait for my good news.”

    He started to be busy again, Jiang Miaomiao’s cheeks were reddening, and he stood beside him without moving.

    Downstairs now? She would really be exhausted on the way.

    She doesn’t want to sleep alone, anyway, the hotel does not have air conditioning, and the roof is windy and cooler, so it’s better to stay here to sleep.

    She collected the cardboard and made a simple bed. She picked up a small cardboard as a fan and lay on it to fan.

    Jiang Rourou pissed in the corner and ran to her feet.

    Lu Qiming studied the manual without raising his head, and he was in a posture of unsuccessful not to give up.

    The two of them were silent, but the atmosphere was surprisingly harmonious.

    Jiang Miaomiao was always wary of the appearance of zombies, but it was probably because the top floor was too high, two or three hundred meters long, and the zombies could not climb up, so they were calm all night.

    Lu Qiming didn’t sleep all night, and he was still working at dawn, and his persistence was as good as a stubborn donkey.

    She persuaded him not to persuade him a few words, so she let the dog stay and went downstairs alone.

    When he came back, he carried a plastic bag full of water and food.

    Lu Qiming was slightly surprised.

    “What are you doing?”

    “Be with you, the roof is so sunny, I guess you lack someone to give you an umbrella.” After

    Jiang Miaomiao opened the sun umbrella, poured a half bottle of water on the umbrella and held it. Stand behind him.

    The water evaporated, and it was very cool under the umbrella. Lu Qiming was a little embarrassed, but he was reluctant to let her go, so he had to speed up his hand.

    After so long of research, he finally figured out some ideas, spliced ​​solar panels, and prepared to connect them to the building’s electrical system.

    This is a complicated job, and an old electrician who has worked for many years may not be able to complete it.

    As a layman who only knows the fur, it is very difficult for him to do it, and he repeatedly hits the wall.

    The weather was too hot and Lu Qiming was upset after repeated failures and almost wanted to throw it away.

    But when his arm touched the woman’s calf behind him, he immediately calmed his mind and gave birth to motivation.

    She wants to blow the air conditioner.

    He must let her blow on the air conditioner.

    Lu Qiming was very busy, and Jiang Miaomiao was not idle. As soon as the water on the umbrella dries, he immediately pours water, wringing a wet towel from time to time, and covering it on Lu Qiming’s tanned back.

    Jiang Rourou was so enthusiastic that he couldn’t support himself running back to the supermarket.

    She estimated how long the water at hand could last, and then wondered what to eat at noon. Suddenly, her eyes went dark and her head buzzed.

    He couldn’t hear anything, and he couldn’t see anything. He slumped forward and fell on Lu Qiming’s back.

    The latter was taken aback, and quickly turned around to support her.

    “What’s the matter with you?”

    She vaguely saw his mouth opening and closing, but she couldn’t hear his voice at all. Her body was sore and weak, she was sweating violently, and she wanted to vomit.

    Lu Qiming reacted quickly and immediately carried her to the shade, took off her clothes, unscrewed a bottle of mineral water and poured it over.

    Jiang Miaomiao felt a little more comfortable.

    He held her head, fed her some water, and then pinched her roots between his knuckles and pinched back and forth.

    The skin at the mountain root quickly turned purple-red.

    “Ah… it hurts…”

    she screamed and pushed away his hand.

    If you can feel the pain, it means you are out of danger.

    Lu Qiming breathed a sigh of relief.

    “Did you know that you were in shock just now?”

    Jiang Miaomiao was still uncomfortable, clutching his tumbling stomach, and she shrank into his arms and didn’t want to speak.

    He looked at the unfinished solar cell, bit his lower lip, carried her on his back and went downstairs.

    The building is still very hot, not much better than the roof.

    Lu Qiming carried Jiang Miaomiao down to the hotel on the 25th floor, came to the pool, and put her down.

    When she was soaked, she fished it up again, and fanned her with a fan.

    After tossing like this for almost half an hour, Jiang Miaomiao finally regained his strength, and said sorrowfully,

    “Thank you.”

    He scolded:

    “Look, let you come back and you won’t come back. Are you comfortable now?”

    “I’m afraid of your heatstroke. Well, otherwise, who wants to be exposed to the sun there.”

    Jiang Miaomiao was a little aggrieved.

    He said angrily:

    “Just because of your weak physique, you should worry about yourself first.”

    She stopped talking, looked at him pitifully, and after a while she remembered that she was not wearing clothes, and awkwardly covered her chest.

    Lu Qi took a look at her, took a big vest and put it on her, and helped her back to the room.

    The floor was cooler, Jiang Miaomiao did not go to bed, and lay down directly on the floor, holding his hand.

    “You don’t go.”

    Lu Qiming said: “If you don’t go

    , there will be no electricity.” “If you don’t have it, you can save me. What if you have heat stroke? I can’t carry you.”

    He After thinking for a while, sit down beside her.


    Jiang Miaomiao didn’t believe him, so he kept an eye on it.

    Sure enough, when the evening arrived, he slipped upstairs quietly.

    At night, the roof of the building was cool at least, and there were no zombies.

    She turned around before the gate of the ghost gate today. She really didn’t have the energy to climb the stairs, so she had to let him go, and plan to find him again in the morning.

    Unexpectedly, as soon as I opened my eyes the next day, I saw him sitting on the side of the bed, smiling smugly.

    “Have you installed it?” She suppressed joy.

    Lu Qiming picked up the remote control in his hand and pressed the switch to the air conditioner.

    The cool breeze blew slowly, Jiang Miaomiao’s hair trembled slightly, and the room was cool again.

    “The number of batteries is not enough. It may not be possible to provide electricity for the entire floor. Only air conditioners and electric lights can be used in this room, and a small single-door refrigerator at most. If you use an induction cooker and water heater, it is estimated that it will exceed Loaded.”

    “What happens if the load is exceeded? Will it catch fire and explode?”

    “Where is it so exaggerated? It’s just a trip.”

    “That’s good…”

    She breathed a sigh of relief, looked at the vent, and couldn’t help but hug him wildly.

    “Lu Qiming, you’re so amazing!”

    He was exuberantly praised, hugged her and rolled on the bed, and finally lay on her.

    Jiang Miaomiao became nervous, thinking he wanted it.

    But he only yawned and leaned his head lightly on her chest.

    “So sleepy.”

    He didn’t sleep well for several nights, and little stars appeared in front of him when he looked at things.

    Jiang Miaomiao looked at his tired face, stroked his hair, smiled and said,

    “Go to sleep, how long do you want to sleep.”

    “I’m still a little hungry.”

    “I’ll cook for you.”

    She brought a pillow. Hold him, jump out of bed, and close the door as quietly as possible.

    The calf was scratched by the dog’s paw, Jiang Miaomiao looked down and saw Jiang Rourou.

    It is fat and hairy, and it has been very tormented this summer, and its tongue has not been taken back.

    The air conditioner only turned on in the room, and the living room was still hot.

    She hesitated for a moment, pushed open the crack of the door to put it in, and whispered: “Don’t disturb him.”

    Jiang Rourou cleverly lay in the corner without saying a word.

    Jiang Miaomiao then safely closed the door and went downstairs to cook.

    She couldn’t use the induction cooker, so she could only make a fire and cook. Because the supermarket was too hot, she set up the fire next to the window, opened the glass a little bit to facilitate ventilation, and was alert for zombies crawling in while cooking.

    There were no zombies outside the window, but something dark in the sky flew past.

    Jiang Miaomiao thought it was a bird, but didn’t pay attention at first. After a few seconds, he suddenly put down the spatula in his hand and leaned on the window and looked out.

    In the distant sky, a thing that looked like a bird was flying.

    It has a pair of wings, but it doesn’t need to be flapped when flying. It glides through the clouds like an eagle, and the roar from inside it can be faintly heard.

    That’s an airplane!

    Was the government sent to rescue the survivors?
