When he let go of the zombie with his hand, it rolled down the ladder and returned to life. The female zombie was not in a hurry to escape. She stared at the man for a while. I thought she would come biting me, but she didn’t. She jumped to the child. Picking him in by one hand, she held him tightly in her arms and fled the place.
The black robe was only quietly watching from beginning to end. He did not interfere with their retreat.
I also stared at him, stupidly.
My body trembled. I don’t know if it’s because I was afraid, or because of the bitter cold brought by these wet clothes, or even… It was because of this person who step by step came closer to me.
He stopped by me. I could imagine how embarrassing I looked then. Coral velvet pyjamas with muddy water, bloody nose and my bitten hands. He knelt, and the black robes seemed to have a magical black mist that made me unable to see his face even at this close distance.
He reached out to my face, with black leather gloves still on his hands. It was a gentle touch … Like brushing a piece of broken porcelain has been pieced together, so careful.
His hand went down my hair on my face, and then wiped the blood under my nose with his thumb.
“Big brother, who are you?”
He laughed again.
His voice was so magnetic. He let go of me and took a step back. The wind passed, his black robe danced like the heroes in comics, novels and TV series. As a comic book author who was not imaginative but still obsessed with fiction element, the feeling was indescribable. I suddenly heard the sound of my heart. Jumping vigorously. ‘Lub-dub’
I always thought no one could touch the indestructible “dimensional wall” around my heart, not even those strange non-humans … I never knew I would encounter a miracle.
“So, did he say who he was?” Li Zhi asked me. Sitting next to her Meimei and the little wolf nodded,
“Who is he? Does he live in the building? What species”
I was about to answer, the door on the top of the building opened again: “Imaginary love.” He stood at the door, “Don’t make money just be lazy all the time.”
“We need rest too. We have not delayed any work.” Li Zhi got her salary, so she was more vocal. “Don’t make trouble; let us listen to Xiao Xin.”
I coughed. These three curious babies,”Li Wei said this to me.”
“Don’t believe in love.”
I had heard a very heart-wrenching sentence from him yesterday. I repeated it. A bit numbing, I rubbed my arm and smashed Li Wei: “What do you want?”
Li Wei’s face got ugly: “Send the medical expenses to the old witch on the sixth floor.”
Yesterday because of Li Wei’s appearance, I lost the black-robed. At the moment, Li Wei found me. The figure of the black robe man disappeared into the mist of the mountain city like a cigarette smoke sat in the same place reminiscing the unbelievable love. Still guessing who was this person who fell in love with me at first sight. Li Wei’s face appeared in my view.
“Su Xiaoxin.” He called my name, very serious.
That was the first time I saw Li Wei like this. Frowning, and the lips were slightly tight: “Tell me.”
“Say you are okay.”
“I…I’m okay.” I stupidly replied, then slowly woke up. “Li Wei, I think I met the man I was destined for.”
Yes, it’s like the words of Zixia Fairy. Although the black-robed man didn’t attract much attention by wearing a superhero suit or flying in clouds, he has appeared in my life like a superhero.
“I was moved.” I pressed a hand on my chest and looked at Li Wei. “Do you believe in love at first sight?”
A long silence followed.
“I believe there are no free pies in the sky. With your stupidity, it’s not worth having love at first sight, which won’t be fulfilled.” He said, “You need a wake-up call. Go cure your brain.”
I had been taken to the sorcerer on the sixth floor… Yes, she was a wizard. But because of her character, Li Wei called her old witch. Yesterday when Li Wei knocked on her door. She had applied a green face mask. After cleaning my wounds, she treated them. My wounds got better with magic.
I took the medical bill from him and placed into my pocket: “I know, you don’t need to remind me.” I wanted to ask him how he found me yesterday.
“So…” Li Zhi pulled back my attention. “You are love with someone you don’t know anything about, his name, his origins, even how he looks?”
Li Zhi summarized it well.
I nodded: “Yes, I fell in love at first sight.”
I know he wasn’t human.
