Quick Transmigration with Female Lead Aura - Chapter 96
Captain Li’s movements were fast. When Jiang Nian, Qin Yue, and Li Ming arrived at the door of the house, they saw him already heading towards them and holding the rewards. In fact, he could have tasked the soldiers with brining the prize out, but didn’t do so. When captain Li heard that things were becoming tricky and out of hand, he was worried that he would lose a few comrades in order to exterminate the zombies. He did not expect that thanks to Jiang Nian’s help, although many of his soldiers were injured, none of them lost their lives, and all of them could retreat safely. So he would naturally come over in person to show his sincerity and gratefulness.
At this time, Leader Wang, who led the team to do the clean-up but was surrounded by zombies and mutated cats and dogs and was almost wiped out, also specially came to thank Jiang Nian. The two people talked together for a while. Jiang Nian looked at the boxes of things sent by Captain Li and her brain ached. There was nothing valuable in the boxes, so Jiang Nian turned around and gave them to Leader Wang, saying: “Captain Wang, just take these and bring them to your injured teammates. Split those things among them to treat their injuries.”
Captain Li had heard of Jiang Nian’s naïve and foolish personality, and replied helplessly: “District Chief Jiang, don’t worry about us. We have already sent supplies to our injured teammates. , These are your prizes.”
Lao Wang also hurriedly said: “Yes, yes, you keep all these. You saved us at such a great risk. We can’t take your things anymore, let alone our team. We will send supplies to our injured brothers. As long as we are still breathing, we will ensure that they will have their share of food and medicine! District Leader Jiang, these are all yours, you deserve them, and we can’t take them back!”
They had witnessed before Jiang Nian’s generosity to the extent of foolishness, but also feared her for her strength. After all, she was powerful and they were not her opponents. So one of them ran away first, and the other ran fast after giving his thanks, as if there was something terrible chasing behind them, shouting as they ran that there was no way they’d take back what they gave her. So Jiang Nian could only accept it. She also didn’t understand why they would insist on giving her those things. These people were really stupid, if there was gold would they even have a share?
Li Ming was stunned, and even Qin Yue held back a laugh, as if there was something unusual about Jiang Nian.
Jiang Nian gave the items she just got to Mother Jiang, and Wang Cai went to catch the fish. They would have a sumptuous meal in the evening, but now, she was going to take Qin Yue to meet his parents.
Now Qin Yue’s parents lived upstairs in her house, which was very convenient, “I don’t think Uncle Qin is home right now. He and my dad went to the city to work together. Work does not finish until five o’clock, so they come back generally at five thirty. ”
These days, the young and strong were tasked with cleaning up zombie hordes, the old could deal with zombies too if they didn’t find it too difficult, but they were also indispensable for manual tasks, like building walls and helping in the underground temporary shelter. Father Qin and Father Jiang felt that they still had some strength, so they signed up and went together.
When working outside, one could enjoy free lunch, and get two big vegetable bags after finishing work in the evening. The daily workers could get some additional supplies, and the welfare was still very good. Because of the large number of people participating, the safe area and the non-safe area were distinctly separated. The leaders was also worried that the zombies from the safe area would come over. Therefore, a high wall was built every 100 meters and three full roads were repaired. Power grid was used for isolation, and even the area outside the city wall was going to be dug in order to place some defenses and traps to prevent zombies from suddenly attacking from outside.
Qin Yue said, “I think there is still a large empty area on the safe side. Have all the people there evacuated?”
Jiang Nian shook her head helplessly. The capital was so big, but only occupied a zone of the safe area. Every day they cleaned up zombies to rescue survivors, but there were also many zombies lurking there. Two months later, the zombies would only become stronger. They dared not go deep all by themselves because they were afraid that they would run into trouble and perish without being rescued. They sent a helicopter, but resources were scarce in the apocalypse. Even if the helicopter kept flying and looking for survivors, the fuel reserves would soon deplete, let alone how many people could be carried at the same time? It was necessary to send people to check the situation out, but their endeavor was just a drop in the bucket.
As for why the two sides of the same city are so drastically different, Qin Yue figured it out easily, not to mention that the safe area was spreading around the happy community where Jiang Nian was located.
Fortunately, General Shen did not give up on the other side, he would regularly send them supplies, and also gave them the methods of cultivating abilities. He also sent someone to teach them the skills of self-protection and dealing with zombies, so that they would unite and fight against zombies. There were also a lot of powerful abilities and teams in the other side, so they should work together, and if that happened then it wouldn’t be long before they wouldn’t need those walls of separation.
Li Ming sighed and thought that if other cities had united their citizens like the imperial capital, they would have maintained their morality and conscience in the apocalypse, and there would not be so many tragedies and misery.
Unfortunately, there was only one Jiang Nian in the world.
Li Ming suddenly wondered: “District Jiang, are you also forming a team of supernatural abilities’ wielders now? Are they all powerful?”
Jiang Nian nodded, bent her fingers and counted, “Me, my dad, my mother, my brother, and a neighbor, Uncle Zhang. It’s a pretty good team, right? I raised the rank of its members by myself, after all.”
Li Ming: “….Huh?”
Qin Yue suddenly coughed. He pretended that nothing happened, and asked, “So you team has five people?”
Jiang Nian said, “But now I am the only one available. They are all very busy, so I have to rely on myself for tasks.” ‘The burden on my shoulders is heavy’.
Qin Yue looked at Jiang Nian, who frowned pitifully, and curled his lips.
After climbing the stairs to the third floor, Jiang Nian suddenly pointed to a red iron gate and said: “It’s here. Auntie must be at home, so Qin Yue, you should go first. I’ll go back to cook. Auntie doesn’t have to cook lunch today. We eat at home, and it happened that I received delicacies as a bonus. Let’s try it together.”
Qin Yue did not refuse, and acquiesced with a smile.
He watched Jiang Nian go downstairs, then turned around and knocked on the door.
The moment Mother Qin saw Qin Yue, she was so surprised that she cried out, covering her mouth, and saying vaguely: “You came back, you came back…” Then she looked at Li Ming’s missing arm. Tears couldn’t stop gushing and rolling down her cheeks, she cried until she ran out of breath, and couldn’t even speak a word.
After Qin Yue reigned in his emotions, he appeased Mother Qin who finally stopped crying after a long time . After asking carefully, he realized that they had not been living with Jiang Nian before, but were allocated a house two blocks away alongside the people of his previous team. The first two days have been peaceful. They thought it would be safe in the imperial capital, but didn’t expect that half of the people there became zombies after the second outbreak of the virus, and some of the remaining people waited for the rescue for a long time.
After the rescue, and looking at the zombies wandering all over the street, they thought that the world was over and that mankind was doomed. In despair, the original peace was completely broken. They fought for the remaining supplies and no longer respected Qin Yue’s parents. No one knew whether Qin Yue was dead or alive. Who cared so much now?
Because of this, the Qin parents suffered a lot. The two of them were already old. The huge change almost caused them to fall into despair. If it were not for seeing their son again, they would probably not be able to persist until now.
Qin Yue’s face was expressionless, and Li Ming fisted angrily: “These people are too conscientious! Which of those materials was not bought by Brother Yue with money? How did Brother Yue treat them, and how did they treat us? Did they think the end of the world is here, and that robbing and letting other people starve is only right?”
Mother Qin shook her head and was heartbroken. No one wanted to lend them food when they asked to borrow some. Even Wu Wen, the couple, didn’t want to see them. Fortunately, Wu Jiang’s mother was an old friend. They knew each other best, and she only seeked her when the situation became critical. Human’s heart was unpredictable.
They almost starved to death. If it weren’t for Jiang Nian bringing someone to clean up the zombies and to find them specially, and brining them to the happy community to feed, shelter, and heal them… she and her husband would be long gone by now, starved to death, or dead because of illness, not being able to see their son again. What’s more ridiculous is that those people, who had been dismissive of them before, unexpectedly came to approach them after seeing Jiang Nian. Mother Qin was very angry and pained then, and she didn’t want to see them again.
She wiped her tears and said bitterly: “A few days ago, the mother of Wu Jiang had the face to beg me for forgiveness, saying that she was too scared then, and gave me rice and noodles. Don’t think I don’t know that she wants to use me to step on to the high branch of Niannian! I stepped into the coffin with half of my foot. I am not afraid of these evil people, even if I starve to death. Nian Nian is a good girl. Without her, where can we, the old, weak and sick, have a way to survive? Are these wolf-hearted people worthy to stand in front of Nian Nian?»
Qin Yue was calm, he thought that even Wu Jiang could betray him and send him to death without hesitation, let alone others? If it weren’t for Jiang Nian, his parents would have died a long time ago, and would not have been able to wait for him to come.
“Mom, don’t think too much about it. From now on, these matters will be handled by me. I shouldn’t have handed the safety of you and dad in the hands of others. I was too careless.”
Mother Qin said: “My father and I have on foot in the grave. It’s not a pity for us both to die, but you have to watch Nian Nian more. You don’t know, she is a girl famous in our district for being foolish.” Li Ming thought of Jiang Nian giving the supplies she got to others without hesitation. Seeing that they hadn’t taken it back, they nodded in agreement.
Qin Yue said in a low voice, “I know.”
In fact, he felt that Jiang Nian was not stupid, but was serious about doing something meaningful. No matter where she was, no matter how harsh was the surrounding environment, she stuck to her own morals and principles.
For Qin Yue, Jiang Nian was the light in his dark world.
Father Qin came back to see Qin Yue in the evening and was naturally very excited. He patted Qin Yue’s shoulder, red eyed, and said a few good words. Because he was so happy, he had a couple of sips with Dad Jiang. Nowadays, alcohol and tobacco were scarce. Drinking a sip was a luxury on weekdays. Today was the day the Qin family reunited, so Jiang Nian took a bottle of red wine and got drunk with only a few sips.
Mother Jiang fried bacon and cabbage vermicelli. For the sake of an auspicious future, she also cooked a pickled fish. On the table was the big vegetable bag brought back by Father Qin and Father Jiang. Eight people and one cat ate happily and the atmosphere was lively.
The small dish in front of Wang Cai contained chopped fish, so it ate happily.
Jiang Nian rubbed its head.
Qin Yue looked at Jiang Nian and then at the cat. He raised his head and took a sip of the wine. The alcohol of the wine was obviously not heavy, but he felt that his cold heart warmed at this moment and became hot.
In the evening, Qin Yue went downstairs to bring a bucket of water. Father Qin followed, massaging his sore back, and asked: “The things that happened back them, has your mother told you about them?”
Qin Yue hummed.
Father Qin said, “Let’s forget the past and live a good life now. Don’t care too much. It is not easy to survive, so let bygones be bygones.”
Qin Yue was silent for a moment and then nodded.
However, the next morning, he and Li Ming went out early together.
He had to get back the things that belonged to him and settle the debt of the people who wanted to hurt his parents.
Wu Jiang’s father had to go to work after breakfast. He had no supernatural ability, so he could only do rough work. The big buns he had for breakfast last night were given by a couple. After eating, he went to work. His wife also worked in the cafeteria in a small team, helping with cooking, washing clothes, taking care of the wounded, and taking care of lunch and dinner. Their life was pretty good.
When Li Ming suddenly appeared at their door, they looked at him with shock, then with a guilty conscience, then with excitement: “Xiao Ming, you are back? Then is our son also back? Where is he now ? ”
Li Ming sneered coldly:” Come with me. ”
Wu Jiang parents felt the situation was a little strange, but the urge to see their son was stronger so they followed after him.
They didn’t know what was going on until they saw people, about a dozen, and who were all their former teammates. They were teammates who turned against each other in order to snatch supplies because of the second outbreak of the virus…
What was even more terrifying was the presence of Qin Yue, who was standing in the forefront, wearing a black shirt, and there was no expression on his face.
They all bowed their heads, their eyes dodging in guilt, and they looked scared and timid.
Qin Yue sneered, inexplicably frightening: “I heard that you robbed my family and hurt my parents. Shouldn’t you come back now?”
Qin Yue came back alive and came to them to settle the accounts!
At the same time, Yao Xiaoyue had already inquired about the specific situation of the North City Safety Zone, only to realize that Jiang Nian had become the focus of everyone again. Just like at the gas station before, she started teaching and received everyone’s attention and gratitude. Now, she led the human race to unite against the zombies, and she has become a spiritual symbol for everyone in the safe zone!
But she also had to admit that after the end of the world, it should have been hell on earth. Now there is such a bright place, Jiang Nian was indeed amazing.
Yao Xiaoyue thought twice and decided to go to Shen Dongming.
Shen Dongming had given her an address and a token when she left. After all, her abilities were for all to see. It would be great to join the military. Shen Dongming wanted to win over Qin Yue and naturally still wanted to win over the same outstanding her.
When Yao Xiaoyue looked for him, Shen Dongming was bringing Shen Ran to the gate of the military area. Shen Dongming got out of the car and saw Yao Xiaoyue standing at the guard. He walked over and said, “Ms. Yao, did you figure it out when you came to see me? “When Yao Xiaoyue saw Shen Dongming, she also smiled, and said: “Well, I walked in the safe zone recently and heard many people say that General Shen is righteous, and established such a good safe zone, naturally is worthy of us to follow.”
Shen Dongming was naturally very happy, but he still had a few things to deal with: “I’ll let someone take you to the rest area to sit for a while, and I will be back as soon as I finish dealing with some matters here.” She naturally acquiesced.
Shen Ran sat in the car and watched Yao Xiaoyue being taken away. Shen Dongming also came back. Shen Ran squinted his eyes and said, “Why is that woman looking for you?”
“What kind of woman, she is Yao Xiaoyue, the water ability user we met on the way back, she is extremely powerful and skilled in using supernatural powers, and has a great knowledge of the environment and plants. She helped us overcome difficulties a few times. This time she agreed to join the military. This is a great help for us! By the way, there is another man named Qin Yue who is also very powerful. He not only has the thunder ability, but also wields a space ability. He will go to the imperial capital with us this time. I hope that after seeing the scene of our safe zone, he will choose to join the military like Yao Xiaoyue.”
“Yes, do you know him? ”
Shen Ran suddenly said:” Today I will not be meeting Professor Yang, I’m going to read near the river. ”
Shen Dongming felt it was strange, because Shen Ran, who was a genius with very high IQ, was allowed to enter the laboratory , and everyone there welcomed him. What caused him to stop halfway?
“I have a very important matter to deal with it before I go.”
He didn’t expect Yao Xiaoyue, this woman, to reach the imperial capital alive, and to have traveled with Qin Yue. How in earth did they meet?
