Chapter 2: A sister’s caution
The room became silent and the air suffocating.
The men looked at Bai Qingqing with strange eyes; had she just called their captain ‘brother’? Had she become completely insane by fear of being abandoned?
Bai Tiantian stared at Bai Qingqing holding Fu Chen’s hand and felt conflicted.
The team had been gathering in the living room, getting ready to leave the villa and drive to the nearest city to find food and supplies.
As for Bai Qingqing… they did not know how the captain would handle her; Xiao Yang and Liang Zhiyu had not made any comment but both Shen Mingxuan and Cheng Rui had agreed they would leave her in the next base, which would be the end of their benevolence.
Bai Tiantian felt she did not have any right to speak, her sister had indeed done too much to stay in the team.
“She has amnesia.” Fu Chen said.
Shen Mingxuan put down the gun in his hand, got up, and walked over before grabbing Bai Qingqing’s arm and pulling her in front of him.
His peach blossom eyes looked at her coldly: “Amnesia? Lies!”
Bai Qingqing’s face became panicked and scared, and as she cursed in her heart, she struggled to withdraw her hand.
She looked at Fu Chen beside her, blushed, and shouted: “Let go of me! Brother, save me!”
Xiao Yang was staring at the wound of her head with suspicion: “Real amnesia?”
Cheng Rui’s tough facial features were dark and his eyes were sharp: “Throw her out, if she is afraid of zombies, we’ll know if she is faking it or not.”
Liang Zhiyu slowly said: “Could it be the captain’s injury to her head caused memory loss?”
Shen Mingxuan dragged Bai Qingqing outside.
There were many zombies around their villas, if Bai Qingqing was acting, she would definitely be scared and scream frantically.
Of course, Bai Qingqing was acutely aware of their thoughts and she looked at Fu Chen with tears in her eyes: “Brother, save me, where is he taking me?”
She did not want to become zombies’ dinner, she needed to hug Fu Chen’s thigh tightly before she could become stronger.
“Okay, let her go.” Fu Chen said in his habitual icy voice.
“She really has amnesia.”
He looked at her with cold eyes and threatened: “Beware of me finding out it was all an act, or I will end your pretty face.”
The next second, a vase exploded in the room and glass scattered all over the floor.
Bai Qingqing shivered on the floor; this man was really cruel and she was relieved she had decided to pretend to have lost her memory.
Otherwise, her fate would have been exactly the same as in the original novel.
The girl was only wearing a dirty white dress, her hair was messy and her smooth forehead was stained with blood; her trembling figure on the ground looked very pitiful.
It was a shame that the men of the Thunder Squad did not have any feeling about any women that were not the heroine, with her Mary Sue halo.
After a while, Bai Qingqing finally managed to control her fear and got up before running towards Fu Chen and hugging him tightly: “Brother, don’t leave me.
I will be obedient, please don’t leave me.
Fu Chen’s pitch-black eyes were indifferent but he raised his hand and rubbed her head.
“Don’t be afraid, Shen Mingxuan is just teasing you.”
Bai Tiantian walked over quickly and asked: “Sister, don’t you remember me?”
She grabbed Bai Qingqing’s arm and tried to pull her out of Fu Chen’s embrace.
With wet eyes and a choked voice, she said: “I’m your sister, Bai Tiantian.
Do you really not remember me?”
Bai Qingqing was buried in Fu Chen’s arms and didn’t raise her head, her own tears soaking his clothes.
Fu Chen lowered his eyes slightly; the woman had just been threatened and intimidated by Shen Mingxuan but had not cried and yet here she was right now.
He looked at Bai Tiantian and said: “She just woke up and doesn’t remember anything.
She is not in good spirits, stay away from her and don’t upset her.”
Bai Tiantian looked at Fu Chen in disbelief.
He had always been the only one to be cold to her in the team but it was the first time he had talked to her so harshly, all for Bai Qingqing.
Xiao Yang had the best relationship with Fu Chen among the men and said: “Tiantian, the captain is right.
You should stay away from that… away from her.”
Whether she really had amnesia or not, Bai Qingqing was insane and it was better to stay away from her just to be safe.
Bai Tiantian walked away, hurt clearly on her face, and looked at Bai Qingqing who was like a small animal nestled in Fu Chen’s arms.
For the first time in her life, an uncomfortable feeling spread in her heart.
Bai Qingqing, who was still buried in Fu Chen’s embrace, slightly curled her lips, thinking that with her dramatic acting skills, she should be able to find a way to survive.
She raised her rabbit-like eyes.
“Brother.” She looked a bit embarrassed: “Can I please go wash? I’m so dirty.”
There was stored water in the villa; she could take a bath but only if she didn’t mind cold ones.
After all, the environment was difficult and it took time to boil water, time they did not necessarily have.
And in half an hour, the team would get on the move one more time and rush to the next destination.
Bai Qingqing walked to the bathroom but instead of closing the door entirely, she left a small gap and said to Fu Chen: “Brother… Can you just wait outside? I’m a little scared.”
Fu Chen had been about to leave but he turned around and looked at her sharply.
Bai Qingqing seemed frightened and immediately closed the door: “Brother, it’s okay, you go out.”
Fu Chen sat down in the room to rest, closed his eyes, and tried to make sense of the current situation before deciding what to do next.
In the bathroom, Bai Qingqing turned on the faucet, sat next to the bathtub, and started chatting with the system as she waited for the water to fill up.
“System, if you really want me to seduce so many people at once, you should give me some skills.
Otherwise, I’ll die very fast in this world.”
[Host, the system has helped you awaken your ability in advance.]
“Awakening my ability in advance?” Bai Qingqing was slightly confused, “What ability?”
After the end had come, humans had awakened powers one after another.
Some people rather quickly, some later, but without those powers, humans were doomed to end up dying from zombies, mutant plants, or mutant animals.
[Host, you have a space and the ability to control plants and animals.]
Bai Qingqing took off her clothes and hopped into the bath, trying to endure the cold and wash her hair as quickly as possible.
She touched the wound on her forehead and hissed.
“It hurts.” Fu Chen had not shown mercy at all, the original Bai Qingqing had not lost her memory but died instantly instead.
She asked again: “How big is this space? Can living creatures be placed inside? How many plants and animals can I control?”
[Host, your power is currently level 1.
The higher the level, the more space you will have and the more you will be able to control.]
“Ah.” Bai Qingqing looked at the bottles of shower gel and shampoo in the bathroom and as soon as she thought of her space, they disappeared.
It was empty, like a granary with no storage, and it was rather small and pitiful, only about 1000 meter square.
But it was better than nothing, when she would go ransack shopping areas and supermarkets, she would stuff everything in it.
The men of the Thunder Squad had first taken Bai Tiantian in because of her portable space, before succumbing to her good nature and beauty and willingly going through fire and water for her.
Women had a keen sense of self-awareness but also had a big misconception about life: they believed that men were more emotionally sensible and better at weighing the pros and cons, the opposite proved over and over again by the Thunder Squad.
Fortunately, right now, the men in the team still put their interests first, otherwise, they would definitely leave her behind.
After figuring out her ability, Bai Qingqing quickly finished washing.
When a man hated a woman, no matter how low she bowed her head to please him, it would only arouse disgust; she could really not let Fu Chen and the others become impatient.
Bai Qingqing put on her clothes and opened the bathroom door.
The man was standing by the window and she whispered: “Brother.” Fu Chen turned around and saw she was still wearing the dirty clothes from before.
He frowned, although purely for his own sake: she would definitely rely on him in the future and he did not want to have a mess hanging around him.
“Wait here.” He strode out of the room and returned quickly, throwing her a set of female tactical gear.
“Put it on.”
It was the end of the world, women could not bother with beauty unless they wanted to be either bitten or be infected by any other diseases.
Beauty would also attract more or less respectable people, and when women were treated as nothing more than commodities, it was stupid to wear a skirt and expose their skin.
Bai Qingqing went back to the bathroom to change and came out.
She then followed Fu Chen like his shadow and asked him a bunch of questions.
The man told her indifferently that it was the apocalypse; zombies were everywhere and humans had awakened all kinds of abilities in order to survive.
The zombies around the villa had been cleaned up by the team a long time ago and almost none were seen on the road.
The modified car was parked outside and the other members were already inside.
Bai Qingqing followed Fu Chen to the vehicle and the car started to drive towards the next city.
Cheng Rui was driving and Xiao Yang was acting as a co-pilot.
Shen Mingxuan and Bai Tiantian were in the back, and Liang Zhiyu was nowhere to be seen.
Shen Mingxuan glanced at Bai Qingqing, his eyes full of hatred and disgust but she did not pay attention to him.
Shen Mingxuan had been from a rich family before everything had disappeared.
His father had been a well-known local wealthy businessman and, as a child, his father had often cheated which has caused her mother to suffer from multiple mental issues.
She would often abuse him, then gently give him medicine, crying and complaining about her husband’s infidelity and the woman who had seduced him.
Unlike her, Bai Tiantian’s innocent and gentle looks made him feel good, and her personality was always kind, just like his mother when she would nurse him.
Fu Chen left Bai Qingqing on the first level of the car and went to the second, where he usually rested.
Bai Tiantian had been ordered to not unsettle Bai Qingqing and she felt both wronged and uncomfortable.
Looking at her sister, she did not feel very happy.
There was nothing much to do at the end of times, after the cities had collapsed, there had not been any communication signal left and phones could not be used anymore.
Bored, Bai Qingqing fell asleep.
Shen Mingxuan, who had been cleaning his gun, had not expected she would fall asleep.
She looked quite comfortable, her mouth slightly open and her breathing shallow, like a relaxed kitten.
Malicious feelings rose in his heart and he got up to kick her seat.
Bai Qingqing woke up abruptly, opened her eyes, and looked at Shen Mingxuan’s cold face, not knowing what to do.
“Get out of the way, I need my things.”
Bai Qingqing gritted her teeth, got up, and stood aside.
Shen Mingxuan took a handgun from behind the sofa and returned to his seat, a touch of pleasure flashing in his peach blossom eyes.
Fu Chen came downstairs at that time and saw an isolated and well-behaved Bai Qingqing.
He walked to her and asked: “Why aren’t you sitting down?”
Shen Mingxuan looked up at her and quickly assembled the gun in his hand, full of threat.
Bai Qingqing shook her head and answered: “I’m okay.”
The curtain opened on the other side and Liang Zhiyu came carrying food.
“Let’s find a place to stop to rest and eat.”
The group gathered for the meal.
Bai Qingqing ate a little and put down her small bowl before looking at everyone with some hesitation.
Fu Chen noticed her expression and asked faintly: “What do you want to say?”
“It seems that I got a special power like you guys.”
Everybody stopped eating and looked at her with different expressions.
Bai Tiantian was the most surprised and said: “You have an ability?”
“Yes.” Bai Qingqing smiled before announcing: “I have a space.” She was not planning on exposing her other power just yet, there would be other uses in the future.
Shen Mingxuan was the first to express his disbelief: “If you have a space, how about you prove it?”
