Chapter 19: Everything’s not lost (1)
In the outskirts of the wilderness, the cold light of the moon was shining on the mountains.
Even if the road could be seen clearly, the environment at the end of the world was hard; many animals and plants had begun to mutate and people were always afraid of what kind of monsters could appear at any moment.
And with Fu Chen’s current identity as Bai Qingqing’s brother, he was the best to bring her back.
Fu Chen glanced at Xiao Yang who was still sulking and patted him on the shoulder: “This is not the time for love.
Let’s talk about it when we return to the Beijing base.”
Xiao Yang’s heart skipped a beat and guilt flashed across his face.
He indeed had some feelings for Bai Qingqing; there were not many girls in the apocalypse and it was very pleasant to get along with her these days.
He couldn’t help but be a little moved.
They were still thousands of kilometers away from the Beijing base.
Even if all roads were unblocked, they still had to drive days and nights without rest to reach it.
According to Liang Zhiyu’s plan, it would take about a month for them to successfully reach the next base.
And so many things could happen in one month, they were not even certain to reach their destination alive; Fu Chen was right, it was better to not reveal your mind before having the ability to do so.
“Brother Fu, I know.” He smiled reluctantly.
Fu Chen hummed, arranged a few things, and walked away to find where Bai Qingqing had gone.
Bai Qingqing gnawed on her corn all the way and cursed at Shen Mingxuan.
Her plan to seduce the little puppy had only begun and he had already destroyed most of it.
Targeting Xiao Yang first was a good strategy and as long as she could find common hobbies and topics with him, she could slowly impress him and capture his heart.
But not only had Shen Mingxuan ruined everything, but Bai Qingqing also hadn’t eaten enough barbecue.
Stupid idiot! Bastard! Jerk!
Bai Qingqing’s heart was bitter and she was beating Shen Mingxuan up in her mind.
“System, is there a way to know the infatuation level of the targets?”
At present, the interested target is Xiao Yang, please continue to work hard.]
Ah, it turned out everything had not been lost.
A smile appeared on Bai Qingqing’s face; she had to work harder to survive.
When she thought about it more calmly, Shen Mingxuan’s behavior tonight was rather helpful and had shaken Xiao Yang’s feelings.
She might be able to find another way to seduce him; starting tomorrow, she could gradually alienate him and play the aggrieved white lotus who needed to stay away from him.
Xiao Yang was already interested and in front of her distant behavior, he would be unable to catch her despite trying and his emotions would carve themselves in his heart.
Her task was finally going to achieve some results and Bai Qingqing’s expression relaxed.
Standing by the river and looking at the sparkling surface of the water under the moonlight, she couldn’t help but let out a weird evil laugh, just like a real villain.
“What are you laughing at?” A clear male voice was heard.
Bai Qingqing’s laughter stuck in her throat in shame and surprise.
“Cough, cough, cough…” She coughed violently, tears gathered in her eyes, and she looked at the impromptu visitor with embarrassment.
The handsome man in the black jacket raised his eyebrows slightly and asked: “Sister, have you gone mad?”
Bai Qingqing coughed again and blushed: “I haven’t! I’m not crazy!”
Fu Chen walked to her, took a tissue from his pocket, and wiped the corn crumbs from the corner of her mouth.
“I thought you were angry at Shen Mingxuan but you ran here to go mad.”
She grabbed his hand and stared at him: “Brother, even if I did bad things before, I know I was wrong.
Shen Mingxuan is aiming at me, you scold him for me.”
She was just saying things.
She did not expect Fu Chen, who saw Shen Mingxuan as his important teammate, to stand up for her.
“Huh?” Bai Qingqing looked silly, her eyes wide with surprise, and carefully asked: “Really?”
Fu Chen’s dark eyes were on her: “I said yes.”
“Forget it.” The girl pretended to be understanding.
She lowered her eyelashes and said in a soft voice: “I don’t want to cause problems for my brother.
I will try to stay away from him in the future.”
Fu Chen watched her well-behaved and cute appearance, just like a kitten pleasing her owner.
He messed with her hair and said: “So obedient, huh.”
Bai Qingqing raised her head, showing her fair and delicate face and a shallow smile: “I am your sister, of course I must be good.”
“Who ran away in a tantrum at night?” Fu Chen’s eyes were deep and oppressive.
Bai Qingqing shrunk her neck and grumbled: “I didn’t run around.”
The river was only a few meters away from where they had set up the camp and the modified car was visible from here.
She had walked a few minutes at most.
Fu Chen lowered his hand on her head.
His movements were slow but very aggressive and it grasped her slender neck from the back of her head, pulling her closer.
He stared at her with his deep and dark eyes and said in a low voice: “Didn’t I tell you before to listen to me and never run around?”
Bai Qingqing stared at his almost feral eyes and cold sweat dripped along her back.
She blanched with fright and she desperately tried to contain the tears that had gathered in her eyes.
She wanted to say something but she pressed her lips tightly and her whole appearance was oddly charming.
The bright and white moonlight fell on her pale face.
Her skin was as white as porcelain and the eyes that were looking at him were pitiful, aggrieved, and frightened, as she trembled just like a small animal.
Fu Chen’s eyes darkened even more and he clasped her fragile neck tighter: “Why don’t you speak?”
But Fu Chen wasn’t someone who softened easily.
If he didn’t control her now, she would become less and less careful in the future.
Although she wasn’t really his sister, he had to spoil her but also discipline her, otherwise he wouldn’t be able to ensure her safety.
She couldn’t run around because of anger and be too far to save if she encountered danger.
“Brother.” Bai Qingqing’s voice was small and mixed with sobs: “You’re hurting me.”
Fu Chen’s hand suddenly loosened, letting go of her delicate neck.
Bai Qingqing breathed a sigh of relief and raised her hand to rub the spot he had held her.
She hung her head and pulled her hair away before turning her back to him.
“Is it red?” Fu Chen had too much strength.
Had he just tried a little bit harder, she had no doubt he would have broken her neck.
Fu Chen lowered his eyes and looked at the red marks on her skin: “Weak.”
“Hey.” Bai Qingqing was angry and blurted out: “Isn’t it because you used too much force? Is it red?”
Fu Chen started to feel guilty after she complained.
He had indeed used a little strength but hadn’t thought she was so delicate and her skin would bruise so easily.
He remained silent for a moment while staring at her tender neck and said solemnly: “I was wrong.”
“Bad brother.” Bai Qingqing hummed twice and took ointment from her space, “Help me apply the medicine or it will swell up tomorrow.”
Fu Chen felt apologetic and took the cream before opening the lid.
He was used to apply medicine on himself every other day but facing Bai Qingqing’s neck, he didn’t know where to start.
After a moment, he moved awkwardly very carefully, as if she was as precious as crystal.
Fu Chen stopped immediately: “Does it hurt?”
“No.” Bai Qingqing clenched her fists, “It’s cold.”
The medicine was relatively strong and when applied, the cold caused a slight pain.
Fu Chen massaged the area and frowned, slightly unhappy.
Once done, he suddenly thought that his “sister” was much more attractive than the gentle-looking Bai Tiantian.
“What’s wrong? What happened?”
“Nothing.” Fu Chen led her back to the rest of the team.
After returning to the camp, Bai Qingqing looked at the clean picnic table.
She showed a disappointed expression, lamenting in her heart they had not left any barbecue for her.
“Go and sit down.” Fu Chen said.
Bai Qingqing did as told and asked: “What are you doing?”
Fu Chen went to the car and came back with two plates.
The smell of food spread in the air.
Bai Qingqing’s eyes brightened: “Brother, you saved me food!”
“Eat.” The man sat down beside her.
Before he had gone to get her, he had asked Liang Zhiyu to put a plate away and keep it warm.
Bai Qingqing ate with appetite and Fu Chen stared at her, the corners of his lips twitching slightly.
After a while, Bai Qingqing touched her belly with a satisfied face and sincerely said: “Brother, you are so kind.”
“Am I kind because I give you food?”
“Yes.” Bai Qingqing answered with honesty.
Fu Chen looked at her sincere yet heartless appearance: “Pick up your things and go wash and sleep.”
“Okay.” Bai Qingqing gathered back all the outdoor supplies in her space and went back to the car.
