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.

“We’ll split up for the rescue. Gather them here, but only bring the quiet, obedient ones. Abandon them if there’s the slightest resistance.”

Xiao Sha nodded.

“The key point is not to push yourself too hard. If there’s something amiss, prioritize your own safety first. If you really can’t get away, then call out my name, and I’ll figure something out. I mean it.

I couldn’t resist giving out the order thrice. I was worried that Xiao Sha wouldn’t want to endanger me, so much so that he wouldn’t even be willing to ask for help and would end up sacrificing himself. If the sacrifice was worth it, then so be it. But I really didn’t want him to die in vain when I could have saved him, simply because of some pointless misgivings.

Xiao Sha readily agreed, without any sign of struggle or hesitation. He didn’t look like he would insist on not calling for help and taking on the burden alone.

Running out of time, I quickly instructed, “You’ll save the ones who were running to the left and right, lead them here, and don’t go anywhere else. I’ll save the others.”

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.
