Xiao Sha thought about it and said, “There may be mini department stores nearby, but I’m not sure about it. Based on my memory, the nearest shopping mall is still a slight distance away, and we may have to walk for a day.”
As expected from a man—he didn’t even know where the closest shopping mall was. If it was a woman, she could probably circle all the various big and small shops nearby on a map, and would even be able to tell me which was best for buying clothes, or which was best for shoes. As for the things that I wanted, she would have screamed out “I’ll take you there” with shining eyes!
Sadly, I only had a man with me. Beggars couldn’t be choosers, so we probably had to walk around a bit more.
“We still have two days to spare, so let’s head in that direction. On the way back, we can grab a vehicle on the outskirts of Lan City to save time.”
Xiao Sha reminded me, “It’s a small shopping center. Although there wouldn’t be as many people there as in large shopping centers, it would be no small number either.”
“The apocalypse occurred in the middle of the night, and it was also the same day that the black fog spread. There wouldn’t have been crowds in the shopping centers. That area would usually have been noisy too, so there probably weren’t many residents living around there either.”
The realization struck Xiao Sha, and he nodded.
