When I came round, a blood-red and yellow sunset was reflected on the snowy leaves of the icy tree that had filled the sky, strikingly colorful like tears of blood, appearing as beautiful as a rose… Jiang Xiaorong, why the heck did you grow and fill the sky for no reason?

I crawled up and even had to push aside the branches all over my body, as I had been completely buried by tree roots. Frowning, I asked, “Xiaorong, are you protecting me?”

The banyan tree excitedly shook his tree trunk, even curling up his roots and tightening around me, as if asking for credit for how well he had protected me.

“Well done.” I nodded, then asked with a slight smile, “Now then, tell me, how many caterpillar crystals did you eat while I was asleep?”

The banyan tree suddenly froze, as if he was just a tree that was incapable of moving. That shaking just now must have been caused by the wind.

Rolling my eyes, I said, “Still playing dumb? Don’t tell me there’s nothing left? Besides, aren’t you afraid of exploding from overeating? Now, hand over the rest of the crystals.”

After communicating with Xiaorong and confirming that he knew what he needed to do, I jumped straight out of the window and formed my ice dagger in midair. Semi-transparent branches shot out. I was pushed right at the cocoon. Since I hadn’t mastered this move yet, my face almost crashed into it. Fortunately, I pulled the ice spear out in time and used the force from the push to pierce right into the top of the cocoon.

I drove the spear head in and felt satisfied but immediately met resistance. I tightened my right hand around the handle, then grabbed the ice dagger on my thigh with my left hand and stabbed it right in the same area as the spear head.

By the time we returned to the mini storage, it was already very late. There was no need for discussion. Everyone automatically understood that we were going to stay here for the night. The dark was definitely not the best time for the living to be active.

Upon returning, Guan Weijun ascertained everyone’s well-being. She then went to the side with Zhang Jing and Tai Wen for a private discussion. The topic was probably the distribution of crystals. Those two seemed to be her right- and left-hand. I didn’t know how she was going to distribute them; there were five crystals, so it was best to give them all to one person. One person could hardly feel any effect with partial consumption. But at the end of the day, the distribution itself was always the difficult part. One wrong move, and just a few crystals could shatter the team’s harmony.

I scrunched my brows and watched Guan Weijun. She placed the crystals in Tai Wen’s hands. I couldn’t really tell from my angle, but it seemed to be all of the crystals…

“Please don’t be afraid of my Xiao Jun.”

Startled, I looked back and saw Mom looking at me with uneasiness. She even anxiously explained, “You probably saw Xiao Jun’s strength, right? She’s actually a good girl. She’s just… just a bit tomboyish and learned a bit of boxing. I don’t know how her strength became so powerful…”

I looked back on how Guan Weijun could use her bare fists to smash brains into pulp all over the floor. And this much power was before she even ate any crystals! But to me, that scene wasn’t gruesome. I just found it regrettable. If I had been that strong in my last life, maybe Mom wouldn’t have passed away so early on in the beginning stages of the apocalypse.

The shopping mall entrance seemed empty, but the glass panes of the display windows to both sides were shattered all over the floor, and even the items on display inside the windows had fallen every which way. Obviously, something had broken in.

Upon seeing this, Guan Weijun turned to look at Xiao Sha and asked, “How many monsters can you kill?”

Naturally, Xiao Sha wouldn’t expose his hand right at the start. He prudently said, “You speak first.”

Guan Weijun took a deep breath and quickly explained, “Three if they’re not fast. One or two if they’re a bit faster. But some are particularly strong. I’m not very sure about those.”

All the others were staring at her, their expressions so twisted that I didn’t even have the heart to look at them. I reckoned that among these sixty people, young and old, men and women, any of them were more fitting of the title “weak and delicate lady” than her.

Xiao Sha spoke with a hardened look, “More than half of you are men.”

“In the presence of a great hero such as you, each and every one of us is merely a woman!”

“…”

Hey hey, those thirty men or so behind you almost burst into tears. 

Watching this familiar face in front of me laughing so brightly, I felt deeply disturbed. Had I really looked like this in the past?

No, no, absolutely not. At the initial stage of the apocalypse, although Xia Zhengu hadn’t started getting into casual relationships with other women, sticking to flirting at most, I still couldn’t laugh at all. Back then, I only remembered being terrified and panic-stricken regularly. Laughing was practically impossible, since I had to control the urge to cry almost all the time.
