Chapter 48: Nagging Isn’t A Good Habit
Although City X was large and zombies could be seen anywhere, Ling Mo wasn’t completely lost.
He already decided on the next destination last night. City X University was not far from where they were.
Although the university wasn’t the only high-level educational establishment, it was the one that Ling Mo was the most familiar with. After all, Ye Lian was a student there and he had been there quite a few times.
The university was large and the environment was rather complex. It used to be a bustling area and there were numerous zombies there… It was Ling Mo’s guess of the current state of City X University.
A place like this was the best place for hunting down mutated zombies! As for the lurking danger…Well, Ling Mo was aware that no pain resulted in no gain.
But as soon as he stepped out of the clothing store, he froze in place before he abruptly backed off, hiding in the shadows of the store.
Three people appeared in the plaza!
The most unbelievable part was that he knew all three of them, and he just saw them yesterday… Wang Ling, Li Yu and… Wang Cheng!
How did Wang Cheng join them? Even if he flattered those two, it was way too fast for him to be included.
The first possibility that came into Ling Mo’s mind was that perhaps Wang Cheng told Wang Ling what happened to Xia Na?
If Wang Cheng was dumb like Lu Xin, it was very likely that he would do that. But Ling Mo thought that Wang Cheng was the type who knew what should be said and what shouldn’t be said.
In addition, he didn’t have any upright problems with Ling Mo. Ling Mo never had any thoughts of killing him. Although Ling Mo could control zombies, he wasn’t a maniac.
Perhaps it was Li Yu’s first time acting in a small group. Thus, he continuously looked around nervously as he grasped a sharped steel rod in his hand. Wang Ling held a machete as she lead the way. Wang Cheng followed her tightly behind her.
Ling Mo noticed that there was fresh blood on Li Yu’s rod immediately. His clothes were stained as well while blood dripped down Wang Ling’s machete. It looked like they already had a bloody battle on the way here.
Li Yu was a decent fighter and it wasn’t strange to see him like this. How could Wang Ling’s sick and weak body kill zombies?! Whether she was afraid or not… Ling Mo couldn’t really tell from her usual, pale face.
But why did they come here?
Wang Ling walked straight in the square and immediately noticed the blood stains and the torn flesh on the ground. She walked over and took a few looks at it before turning to the buildings around the square.
Ling Mo took a step back silently as Wang Ling looked towards his direction. Ye Lian also stayed motionless under his control. Xia Na seemed to be fretful but Ling Mo soothed her.
Soon, Wang Ling discovered the teahouse hiding in the corner. She walked at Li Yu who was looking around and she ran to the teahouse.
Wang Ling smiled pleasingly after she saw the dead zombies on the ground. Wang Cheng looked at her in surprise and immediately flattered, “Sister Ling, you are amazing!”
“Weren’t you flattering that Ling dude all the time?” Wang Ling replied unkindly.
Wang Cheng smiled awkwardly, “Sister Ling, I didn’t dare to lie to you because you were asking me about his skills and power.”
“I’ll let know if you are lying to me or not once I get hold of him. I’ve warned you before we left; if you dare to trick me, I’ll throw you outside and let you perish on your own!” Wang Ling snorted coldly.
Wang Cheng immediately felt cold sweat dripping down. He glanced at Wang Ling annoyingly and secretly swore how unlucky he was.
If he had known this, he wouldn’t have kissed her ass in the first place! Wang Cheng revealed some things about Ling Mo since she was asking about Ling Mo curiously. Wang Cheng wanted to become closer to this girl who obviously had some status in the group. However, he didn’t expect himself to be dragged out of the campus as soon as he entered it! Luckily, this girl was almost as strong as Xia Na. His life wasn’t threatened in any way on the way here.
But damn it! The person she wanted to get a hold of was Ling Mo! Wang Cheng wanted to turn around and run as he thought of this. He knew that he would be dead for sure if he left Wang Ling’s side. Even if he was extremely terrified at the thought of it, he had to follow Wang Ling closely.
Liu Yuhao on the other side, kept his mouth shut, and escaped from this…
“Holy cow…” Li Yu saw the scene in front of him and froze.
“See? Didn’t I say that he wouldn’t be able to run away from me? Look at the bodies. Blood is still flowing out. They just died not long ago.” Wang Ling cast a side glance at Li Yu as if she was pleased with his reaction.
Li Yu walked around the dead zombie pile and he couldn’t help but swallow his saliva down. “But Sis Ling, we haven’t exactly caught up to them yet, we have? It looks like they left already.”
“Nothing to worry about. We’ll catch up to them today for sure.” Wang Ling replied carelessly.
“But…” Li Yu hesitated, but made the decision after looking at the bodies on the ground, “Even if we catch up to him, we can’t win against him…”
His heart almost stopped after he said this and he avoided eye contact with Wang Ling. After Wang Ling heard it, her expressions became ugly.
“Sis Ling, I came out with you in secret. Leader Song will definitely scold us once we go back. You’ve seen it. This guy is good and he killed all these zombies here.” Li Yu forced himself to continue.
Wang Ling glared at Li Yu annoyingly. “Are you dumb?! How could he kill so many zombies by himself? Xia Na definitely helped him! She won’t fight me and I don’t believe that sneaky thief can win against me!”
Wang Cheng wanted to say something but as soon as he saw Wang Ling’s unkind face, he immediately decided to keep his mouth shut.
Li Yu was speechless. He fell silent for a while but asked curiously, “Sis Ling, can you tell me how did you know which way they went?”
“I can’t tell you.” Wang Ling snorted coldly as she turned to the shops. She then muttered in an inaudible voice, “It sucks that I can’t pinpoint his location accurately! But he must be somewhere near here!”
Ling Mo left out a breath after watching Wang Ling and the others stop at the teahouse temporarily before leaving through another street.
This girl obviously came for him as it looked like she didn’t want to give up on her dagger. But Ling Mo thought that wanting the dagger back was only part of the reason. She needed to restore her face.
As expected, one could never judge a person by their appearance. This girl looked sick and weak and Ling Mo thought that she would be the gentle type to talk softly. However, she wasn’t only forceful and overbearing, but she also had a bad habit of nagging!
They were in an apocalypse and she still forced people to come out looking for him! I only took your dagger, not your virginity!
But how did she know that he was here? Ling Mo couldn’t understand that no matter how much he pondered.
After mumbling to himself for a while, Ling Mo finally brought Ye Lian and Xia Na out of the clothing store after guessing that they were far away now. Then, he picked a completely opposite route to Wang Ling and the others.
It wasn’t because he was scared of her, but because Xia Na was still with him. The best option was to run away from her because she couldn’t possibly continue to hunt him down.
If she really wants to, then she can do as she pleases! The city is huge and zombies are everywhere. Let’s see if you can go find me!
Ling Mo secretly swore and turned into an alley on the side. However, he didn’t know that immediately after he went into the alley, Wang Ling appeared at the entrance of that street again.
She smiled coldly as she watched Ling Mo walking into the alley. “Caught ya. How dare you steal my dagger and rip off Song Tian…”
Ling Mo suddenly stopped after he was barely 200 meters into the alley. He turned around and his face darkened.
He left Ye Lian at the entrance of the alley temporarily and through her eyes, he could clearly see Wang Ling and the others walking across the square towards here.
“So something is fishy. She knows my location…” Ling Mo snorted gloomily. He quickly glanced around him and hid into an internet cafe with Xia Na while ordering Ye Lian to come back.
There were quite a few zombies there. He could see approximately more than ten. But because of the obstacles, they weren’t too big of a threat to Ling Mo.
Leaving behind four zombies he controlled, he killed the rest of them and hid on the second floor of the internet cafe with Ye Lian and Xia Na.
There were a few more zombies he killed on the way here but he knew that Wang Ling could easily guess that he was hiding somewhere near there. Still, it would be difficult for her to search for him one by one.
Ling Mo knew that Wang Ling only had a rough location of him. Otherwise, she wouldn’t have missed him in the plaza if she knew his exact location. But the girl was smart. She came back after pretending that she had left. Ling Mo wasn’t stupid either; he didn’t think that the route he detoured a few times could be found so coincidentally and hence, he left Ye Lian at the entrance just in case.
Seeing that Ye Lian’s distance was about to exceed from his control and he was about to tell Ye Lian to follow him, Wang Ling came.
“…And the soul of a deceased has not yet dispersed.” Ling Mo cursed angrily. He looked towards the four zombie puppets behind him and smiled oddly.
Since you won’t stop nagging me, I don’t mind giving you a taste of suffering…
