I exited the house and dumped the pile of supplies on the motorcycle. When I looked back I saw the little face, which had been stuck in a gloomy expression for the better half of the day, watching me with a grim expression.
“Shuyu, you’re lying to me, aren’t you?” Without waiting for me to respond, he analyzed what I had said, “Even with a healing ability, I wouldn’t be someone under protection. If you say this is the fourth month into the apocalypse, guns are still useful, and even without guns, I’d be able to fight with a knife.”
I grinned and chuckled, “Of course. Dàgē, you really believed me? Don’t worry, even when Dàgē’s ability is healing, it’s still awesome. There were quite a few times when I wondered whether or not your ability truly is healing.”
He kept his eyes fixed on me, a faint smile crossing his face, and he remarked, “I’d forgotten you were this kind of person. I only remembered you were very protective of family.”
My smile froze. Are you suspecting me or just reminiscing? Make it clear, Dàgē, I’m really nervous now!
But even if I was nervous, it wasn’t to the same extent as earlier on when I’d rather be strangled to death. I want to live together with Dàgē, Xiaomèi, Uncle, and Auntie in the apocalypse. I am Jiang Shuyu!
“Is Shujun all right? Has she gotten used to the apocalypse?”
I nodded, replying, “Everyone’s holding up quite well. If not for that little accident, we’d probably still be at home, with a basement full of supplies, shooting aberrants with guns, eating crystals, and training our special abilities.”
