Chapter 905: Go Through the Ice
“When I come back this time, I will tell you everything—”
His mouth was covered, and Jiang Chen’s eyes widened.
Lips were planted on his lips.
In the same way, Xia Shiyu also made a decision in her mind. Xia Shiyu gently bit her lower lip and whispered, “Whatever you tell me, even if you’re an alien, I… I will stay by your side.”
Considering how serious Xia Shiyu looked and sensing her warm breath just inches away, Jiang Chen took a moment to process before he suddenly burst out laughing.
“What-what are you laughing at?”
Redness instantly covered her cheeks. Xia Shiyu gritted her teeth, raised her hand and gave Jiang Chen’s chest two punches then she reached out to his waist. Jiang Chen certainly wouldn’t get hurt by this level of attack. He fell while laughing on the sofa.
“No, nothing! Haha… okay, okay, I’ll stop laughing.” He grabbed Xia Shiyu’s fists. Jiang Chen, who had been laughing to the point where his stomach began to hurt, took a moment to calm down. Then he looked at Xia Shiyu, who was embarrassed on top of him, then said with a serious face, “Rest assured, I’m definitely not an alien.”
Looked at Jiang Chen pretending to be serious, Xia Shiyu giggled this time.
Jiang Chen also laughed along, he then gently let go of her hand and whispered, “Wait for me to come back.”
“Is it dangerous?”
“Not very dangerous.”
“Can you not go…”
Jiang Chen didn’t speak but only gazed at her black pupils.
The blushing Xia Shiyu looked to the side. Her arms were crossed in front of her chest with her fingers twisting her black hair. Slightly shy, she said, “Umm…remember to be safe on the outside—Ahh!”
Jiang Chen suddenly sat up and Xia Shiyu, who was on his lower abdomen, exclaimed and fell backward on the other side of the sofa. Their positions changed instantly. Looking at his face in close proximity, Xia Shiyu wanted to escape out of panic, but his strong arms gave her nowhere to hide.
With a smirk, Jiang Chen got closer to her ear and gently blew into it.
“You’ve been riding on me for so long. Now it should be my turn.”
Looking at her panicked face and thinking about her dignified, meticulous appearance during the weekdays… the contrast was simply irresistible.
“Wait, wait, what are you going to do?! No, not here, there is where we eat… Ayesha is still in the kitchen… oh, oh!! Oh yeah…”
The apocalypse, Hanzhong.
Axes like wind and blades like snow formed a white hurricane unleashed from the heavens. They shredded every inch of exposed life. The survivors set up strong, warm tents on the edge of the Han River and huddled inside sheets. The patrol team scooped snow out of the camp with a vehicle and while carrying rifles, checked every corner where mutants might be hidden.
Next to them was the Han River. The river was long frozen.
In order to take water from the Han River, the survivors had to use a rig to drill a hole that was nearly a meter down.
The poor living conditions in the northwest region and the scarcity of materials had reached an unimaginable level. Even if the Northern Alliance Area prepared ample supplies for the migration, this migration was still be a death march. Every day, people froze to death, were killed by mutants, or died because of the lack of medicine.
Everything was because of the radiation dust that permeated the sky.
At the moment, in the center of the survivor camp, was the barracks of the commander-in-chief of the Northern Alliance Area. The electric heater emitted a mesmerizing heat. The electricity supply in the camp was limited, but it only applied to regular survivors.
Commander Wei Bian sat beside the holographic map and drew on a wrinkled map with a marker. Deputy Commander Luo Xugang sat across from him, occasionally glancing at his paper map, but he spent most of his time napping.
The marker stopped moving, Wei Bian frowned and abruptly broke the silence in the command room.
“Our time is limited.”
Leaning on his chair, Luo Xugang opened his half-closed eyes and yawned.
“You’ve said this many times.”
Right after he said this sentence, a cold wind brought snow inside. Like a pot of cold water poured from head to toe, the drowsy Luo Xugang instantly woke up. He shuddered several times and his drowsiness instantly went away. He stared angrily at the door.
Although his moves were fast enough, snow still blew inside the command post.
Wei Bian still had the same expressionless face. He looked at the officer and said, “What’s the matter?”
The officer reported quickly.
“NAC is deploying its defenses in the Wu City region. They’ve deployed Type-50 electromagnetic pulse cannons and laser array defense systems along the Yangtze River. They have between two to five thousand troops stationed. Our outposts established in Wu City have been eliminated by them…”
After listening to the officer’s report, Wei Bian became silent. The deputy commander sitting next to him also furrowed his brows. He stared at the map on the holographic command table and kept thinking about the countermeasures silently.
“You can go now.” As if a decision was made, Wei Bian suddenly said, “There will be a combat meeting here in an hour. All officers above the lieutenant colonel level must be present.”
“Yes!” The officer saluted and hurriedly left the command room.
Snow once again covered the command post, but this time, Luo Xugang didn’t bother with the irritable ice shards. Instead, he looked at the Commander of the Northern Alliance Force.
Wei Bian nodded and his fingers tapped on the holographic screen.
“We must take Wu City before the end of the winter.”
“How can we get past the snow?” Luo Xugang furrowed his brows.
Wei Bian’s laser pointer was on the Han River.
“We’ll go through the ice.”
With his eyes open, the bright colors faded, and the yellow and gray tones unique to the wasteland appeared. However, these colors were only confined to the mansion; outside the window was a monochrome whiteness. This year’s winter came much earlier than previous years, and it was also a lot colder.
The wooden door of the bedroom opened and a figure flew into his arms.
“Darling, you’re finally back.” Sun Jiao bit Jiang Chen’s ears resentfully and pouted. “You know how much I missed you?”
Looking at the beauty between his arms apologetically, Jiang Chen was about to say something, but she gently put her finger on his lips.
“I know what you want to say, but I don’t want to hear you say sorry.”
Looking at the mischievous Sun Jiao, Jiang Chen, who was red, smiled apologetically and fixated on her eyes full of love.
“…Once Lin Lin’s research is successful, would you like to live with me on the other side?”
“Didn’t we agree on this already?” Sun Jiao whispered.
“You’re right.” Feeling the warmth in his arms, Jiang Chen spoke while caressing Sun Jiao’s luscious hair.
After sharing an intimate moment with Sun Jiao, this “satisfied” kitten finally let Jiang Chen leave. She held his hand and went downstairs. After they went to the living room, they bumped into Lin Lin who had just come out of the lab.
Seeing Jiang Chen, Lin Lin’s eyes light up, and she quickly stepped forward to grab his empty hand.
“I was just about to go find you. Come with me.”
After that, she didn’t give Jiang Chen a chance to respond before she pulled him into the lab.
