Her skin was dry and black. Blood crawled from her temples to her eyes. They looked like they would fall with a mere touch.
”Fuck!” A shiver ran through me, but at the same time adrenaline was secreted. Since I got along with non-humans especially Li Wei, I wasn’t scared of them. My first reaction was not to run, but to scold her. “You scared me to death.”
Damn even if this person was not a human, but she was not the same as the non-human I knew. She… she had a rotten corpse smell.
In Xiangxi a few dead bodies were robbed. Li Shi’s words rang in my ears. As I stared at the zombie, the voice of the swaying streetlamp and the wind howling across the building built a dread. I got twenty RMB note, threw it to her head and ran.
If you ask me why I threw 20 note, it was because it had the color of the RMB closest to the yellow flag! I didn’t run two steps and the zombie seemed to catch up to me. I saw its shadow on the streetlight shining between the light and the dark. The zombie had rushed over me!
I was pushed by my shoulders. Stumbling on a raised brick on the ground, I feel like a full-fledged dog and on me was the weight of the woman who pressed me. My knees and my nose were hurt. My nose was broken, but I couldn’t feel any pain at this time. I wiped the blood and got on my feet. The zombie behind me did not let go. She held me tightly and climbed my body along my legs.
She hugged my waist so I couldn’t run. I turned back and hit her head. She opened her mouth to bite my neck, let me bleed, let me suffocate, then tear and eat my meat. I was no match for her strength. Except for wasting my energy, my movements provided no resistance.
On the ground, my weak hands hit her chin. The rain last night made the stairs very muddy. My clothes were soaked in muddy water. My heart went cold, all my body from every muscle to joint went stiff. Will I be eaten by her?
“Zombie sister let’s talk” I tried to communicate with her. “I stay up all night. My liver isn’t good, my body has many toxins, don’t eat me. I will show you the way. You follow this road up the hill. There’s building there it has food!
She didn’t care about my words. It seemed that she couldn’t understand them. Communication failed I could only call for help. “Help.”
The zombie bit my palm. Her teeth pierced my flesh easily. Blood oozed from her teeth, I shouted for help. However, in this old demolished area. There wasn’t anyone to heed my call. Not even a single dog, could be seen. It wasn’t good to live alone…what happened to you, others would never know…
“I won’t eat barbecue anymore…” I choked. In the movies the people who were bitten by zombies will turn into a zombie.
‘Am I going to die? No,’
I was aggrieved. “I still have a manuscript. I didn’t even finish my comic…”
“Ah.” In the silent night the voice echoed. I thought it was an illusion, not daring to open my eyes, I lay there.
A golden light fell on me and all the weight from my back vanished. I turned back and saw a man wrapped in a big black robe. From the head to toe, he was covered by the robe. Not a hair could be seen.
At this moment, the zombie who just bit me was in his hands. She was like a toy in his hand. There was no resistance at all: “Go.”
