Weary and wounded, we made our way back up to the refugee camp in single file. Along the way, we even encountered Wu Yaojin. The moment we ran into him, every soldier rushed at him, thirsting for blood and vengeance. As for me, I didn’t feel it necessary to stop them.

Everyone had dark expressions on their faces after we did a count just now. The number of survivors after all the deaths and injuries had been whittled down to just under a third. The greatest shock was the deaths of the Lieutenant and Guo Hong. Their lives were lost in the aberrant ambush led by Asura and not even their corpses were spared. Given the circumstances, could you really blame the soldiers for wanting to rip apart the researchers?

“If you kill me, you’re going to run into trouble two days down the line,” Wu Yaojin analyzed the situation extremely calmly despite the fact that his life was in danger. “In the past, we relied on Maternibaby to keep the aberrants from the refugee camp. But now that it’s not around anymore…”

He had actually adopted the term “aberrant.” With that, this new vocabulary might become commonplace even faster.

Ah Nuo’s face immediately darkened and he asked gravely, “So those monsters are gonna come?”

Wu Yaojin nodded.

Xiao Xue tried her best to keep her face expressionless as she walked toward the abandoned plot filled with cargo containers.

Whether or not they could rescue him, she would face the same result—she had to leave that home for Jiang Jiang to successfully grow up into a real person, but the person who had been kidnapped was Jiang Ziya. He was her Yaya-gēge who had always treated her with kindness. Xiao Xue was still willing to rescue him.

Actually, there was some selfishness on her part as well. Perhaps Jiang Ziya would speak up for her. Maybe, I can stay…

Even if in the end, there really is no other way, and I have to go to Yu Shu’s home, then at least Yaya-gēge would come and visit me every day, right?

With this kind of idea in mind, Xiao Xue walked toward the abandoned plot step by step. The vacant plot only had a lopsided wooden fence surrounding it. Even a little girl could easily find a gap in it to squeeze through. She zeroed in on a hole that didn’t have as many wires tangled around it. Xiao Xue squeezed right through it.

When she lifted her head, she was faced with brightness. Continued

First Wind, wait! Don’t leave yet.

“Yes? Do you need something?”

There’s something I want to discuss with you. The tabloids are saying that there’s something going on between us…

“Ah? Is that so? I don’t have a habit of reading tabloids.”

…Basically, I just wanted to say to you, there is definitely nothing going on! I don’t have any intention of liking you!

“It really hurts my heart that you’re refuting it so strongly. Am I that terrible?”

N-no, I don’t mean it like that! You’re not bad at all. I just, just… Just don’t have the ability to accept anyone else.

“Do you want to tell me your story? You will feel much better after letting it out.”

…Then what about your story?

“Mine? To be honest, my story is quite clichéd. My father became a drug addict after his business failed. He owed many debts and jumped into the sea as a result. After my father died, my mother took my little brother along with her to try to commit suicide via charcoal-burning. Fortunately, I came back home from college at just the right moment, managing to pull the two of them back from the gates of hell.”

Didn’t you say both of your parents…?

“My mother later jumped from the hospital’s roof.” First Wind said calmly.

Isn’t it exhausting? Dragging a pile of debts while taking care of your little brother?

“Haha, after forfeiting the inheritance, the debt wasn’t a problem anymore, although I still got chased by drug dealers for money for a while. But, it’s good that I’m taking care of my little brother! I had to earn money to take care of him, and I also had to quickly pull myself together to console him. If I didn’t have to take care of him, I might have already abandoned myself to despair!”

I feel like I’m asking too much, but tell me something first. You don’t have to answer if you don’t want to… Where did you get the money for modification?

“Hahaha, if I said it, you might not even believe me. I won the lottery.”

“Sigh, I’ve always wondered. If my father never jumped into the sea, this lottery could have cleared all his debts. Why did he give up so early, instead of persisting a little longer? Why did he choose to run away by doing drugs…”
