Chapter 52: Energy Drink
Ling Mo was surprised to learn that Wang Ling also had supernatural powers.
In fact, when he discovered that he could control zombies, he assumed that he wouldn’t be the only person with it in the world.
Ling Mo couldn’t even explain properly how he had gained this. When he just started running for his life, everything was too chaotic and he was too nervous. Now that he thought back to it, other than living in dread every day and barely sleeping, he had no other memories.
Rather than saying the supernatural powers suddenly appeared, it was more like his instinct just woke up at the right time.
But Ling Mo was more concerned with how to use this power to survive.
Compared to his zombie puppets, Wang Ling’s supernatural power was completely useless. The skill she relied on was her sword art.
It looked like there were weaker and stronger possessors, and each power should be different. He wondered how many people possessed powers in this city.
Ling Mo thought that people like him and mutated zombies had something in common.
If having supernatural powers was a kind of evolution, then those humans with powers were like mutated zombies.
Perhaps mutated zombies could continue to evolve. Could people with powers also evolve? Perhaps they had to experience it for themselves to find the answer…
After Ling Mo and the others left, Wang Ling finally breathed deeply.
After waking up from the overwhelming fear, her eyes became red and she suddenly knelt down on the ground as she lost energy.
What Ling Mo said before he left was ringing inside her head.
“Remember, don’t do anything that makes me unhappy. There is no next time.”
When Ling Mo said it with ice-cold eyes, she felt fear rising from the bottom of her heart.
After they went downstairs, Xia Na suddenly asked in a low voice, “You didn’t kill her… Why…”
“Huh?” Ling Mo was confused.
Xia Na continued, “I could feel it… You wanted to kill…”
Ling Mo’s expressions changed. Indeed, he wanted to kill Wang Ling, but considering that she was Xia Na’s cousin and perhaps the only relative Xia Na had, he gave up on that thought.
Although she gave her some problems, from the result alone, she didn’t make him lose anything. However, Ling Mo taught her a lesson and even took her last weapon.
Ling Mo was surprised that Xia Na looked bewildered all the time but was secretly observing everything and thinking about it clearly…
“She’s your cousin. I won’t kill her because of you.” Ling Mo smiled and replied.
“I don’t understand…” Xia Na nodded, “But if you kill… Don’t know why… Maybe I will feel… uncomfortable.”
“Mhm, you two are related by blood after all.”
When Ling Mo was going to take them away, he suddenly noticed that there was something on Xia Na’s neck. He was curious and pulled her back, sweeping the hair on her chest aside.
Xia Na looked like she was struggling. “Don’t squeeze…”
“I’m not going to squeeze your boobs! Do I look like that kind of person to you?” Ling Mo glared at Xia Na righteously and took out whatever was hanging from her neck.
It was an extremely fine mini jade blade and it looked like it had been made for a while. Although Ling Mo wasn’t familiar with jades, he knew that it was extremely precious. The carvings were meticulous and it was cold and smooth by touch. The handle of the knife had a character carved in seal script: Wang.
When Ling Mo helped Xia Na shower, he didn’t see it there before.
“When did this…”
When they left, Xia Na walked behind the others and Wang Ling seized the chance to pass this onto Xia Na.
Ling Mo was distracted and he couldn’t help but look back to the hotel behind him.
Wang Ling’s attitude was different from what she showed. Did she come here to give this to Xia Na as well as getting her dagger back?
Not to mention her intentions, he really didn’t like her method. After this, she was supposed to have learned a lesson.
“Isn’t this her family’s family heirloom?” Ling Mo sighed and put it back under Xia Na’s collar. But he suddenly realized something and looked amazed. “Xia Na, you recognized Wang Ling, didn’t you? Or you wouldn’t have allowed her to come closer to you, let alone tie the jade on your neck!”
“Hmm. I know her. She is my sister…” Xia Na finally nodded certainly and pointed at her brain, “I thought a lot, but it’s messy.”
“Don’t worry. There’s no rush. Take it slowly and you’ll remember everything. Soon, you’ll be the Xia Na you originally were.”
Ling Mo smiled satisfyingly and pinched her cheeks.
But Xia Na’s words made Ling Mo freeze, “I don’t want to become… that Xia Na. I’m the same kind as Lian. So… I don’t want to remember.”
Her intelligence has restored quite a lot for her to think of this… Ling Mo stared at Xia Na and smiled bitterly.
It was true; regardless of whether Xia Na regained all of her intelligence or not, her identity as a zombie would never change. As they continued to evolve, both Xia Na and Ye Lian were going to stray further from the concept of a normal human. Even if they eventually regain their sanity, no one will treat them as humans. And when they looked at other humans, they would look at them like butchers looking at prey.
Ling Mo suddenly felt like he should’ve realized this already. Although Xia Na regained some of her memories, she was extremely hostile to strangers. Even though she recognized Wang Ling, her attitude was rather cold. Perhaps part of kinship in her memories was awakened, making her say what she just said. But her feelings were merely memories, not emotions right now.
It was her instinct as a zombie. Although their food had turned into gels and not as brutal as eating human flesh, they wouldn’t be so friendly to living people as zombies.
She still looked like Xia Na, but her inside was completely different now…
Then Ye Lian should be the same…
Seeing that Ling Mo fell silent, Xia Na could feel his messy and confused state of mind through their connection.
She suddenly pinched Ling Mo’s cheek lightly. “You are not the same kind. But… Different from others.”
Ling Mo’s heart warmed a little.
As their connection deepened, he could feel that Xia Na and Ye Lian became closer and closer to him.
Indeed, as long as they saw him differently from others, isn’t that enough?
Ling Mo laughed at himself bitterly but then smiled oddly. “Remember that only I can pinch your face, but you can’t pinch mine. When you want to express friendly affection… You kiss.”
Xia Na looked confused and Ling Mo pecked her lightly on the lips.
“Can you remember?”
“Show me how to do it. I’m teaching you, do you understand?”
“…Hmm, more or less…”
Ling Mo didn’t want to favor Xia Na only as he kissed Ye Lian as well.
But what was unexpected was that after he let go of Ye Lian, he suddenly felt like his blood boiled and the sound of his heartbeat became extremely loud.
Peng! Peng! Peng!
His heart seemed to beat next to his ears like a drum. Blood streamed much faster and he felt steam leaping from his stomach, spreading to the rest of his body.
Ling Mo’s expressions changed drastically. He felt this the first time he kissed Ye Lian!
But he didn’t become a zombie later so he only thought that it was just a psychological effect. But when it happened again, it proved that what happened before and right now are real feelings!
Obviously, it wasn’t a sign of becoming a zombie.
Perhaps other than blood, all the other fluids in their body contain viruses? But if it contained a virus, why didn’t he become a zombie? He had no way to test his guesses.
Last time, this strange feeling continued for more than twenty minutes but this time lasted shorter. After two or three minutes, Ling Mo already returned to normal.
And until now, he abruptly discovered something shocking!
After the hungover feeling ceased, his head never felt so clear and all the energy he consumed earlier seemed to return to his body!
It looked like the fluids that the zombie girls produced weren’t only non-poisonous, but it was useful in many ways! From the results alone, they were similar to stimulants.
It was probably something like wasp poison or snake venom. Different methods and different purity of these poisons weren’t harmful to the human body, but they were instead beneficial!
The zombie virus was scary but after “purified” in their bodies and mixed with their fluids, they became edible stimulants!
Ling Mo’s eyes immediately lit up. His glance towards the girls became more passionate and blazing.
As expected of my zombie girls, their entire body is a treasure…
