Chapter 8

When they understood the general idea on their current situation, after five minutes the net was also completely disconnected.

There was no electricity, no water, and now, no internet.

The night wind blew in through the half-opened window, chilling people’s whole body. With the wind blowing in, and in the moment the internet was out, there was more shrill, terrifying and horrible screams that could be heard not only in the corridors but even in the next buildings.

Jiang Zhu stood up and closed the window.

Although there was no way to do complete soundproofing, but at least most of the sound could be blocked. The atmosphere in the room was cold and tense making people breathless.

“What’s the situation now? Are we just going to sit here and wait to die?”

The tiger-faced boy broke the silence and asked.

Yan Zhen who was closer to him, slapped him in the back of his head and scolded.

“What kind of stupid talk is that? Of course we have to find a way to survive!”

“Right, Right, it’s too negative to just wait for death here. Let’s hurry up and think of something, right?”

The naïve boy stood up with a face full of anxiety, thinking of comforting the people but with face looking like that, it was right to think he was just being foolish.

“The best thing to do now is not to go out for a while.”

Jiang Zhu opened his mouth, everyone looked at him and he continued.

“We don’t know what’s going on out there now, so we may not survive for a minute if we go out rashly.”

Everyone nodded.

“So what are we going to eat? There aren’t many instant noodles left in the room, right?”

The tiger-faced boy said, he then bent down to grab the boxes under his bed and checked the instant noodles left, that came from wholesale.

He counted.

“I only have thirty cups here, and they’re all mushrooms flavor, it that to your liking?”

“I have twenty more here, ribs.”

The naïve boy followed suit and carried out the box.

Yan Zhen turned his head.

“I only have ten left.”

“Well, the sour and spicy ones.” He added.

Then all of them looked towards the last aboriginal tenant of the dormitory that was no other than, Jiang Zhu.

Jiang Zhu who originally lowered his head who was writing something that they didn’t know of, notice their gaze. He raised his head and calmly replied.

“No, I don’t eat instant noodles.”

Oh yes.

Everyone reacted, this one never eats noodles.

They looked at each other, and the message was clearly: So that’s all the food?

Tang Tang think that these people may have ignored that things she and Yan Zhen just brought. At this time, she couldn’t help but start reminding them.

“There are also these bags, the food we just bought tonight.”

She pointed at the table where the food she bought was place. It was two large bag that were previously place by Yan Zhen at the door.

“Oh yeah! I also brought a lot of snack and bread!”

Yan Zhen suddenly reacted and said in surprise.

The room was happy for a moment, but then the next few people reacted seconds later.

Tang Tang frowned.


Her two big bags were full of snacks?!

She suddenly remembered that because it was very dark in the supermarket, Yan Zhen did not let her follow along into the supermarket to buy things. She stood at the entrance place, only to watch Yan Zhen seems to buy a lot of many things, but also bought a lot of water.

Later, she went to ask him, if it was all food, Yan Zhen said of course, it was all food, and that’s when she was assured and relieved.

After all she and Jiang Zhu were not fond of snacking. Also how could he think that such a tall boy would like to eat snacks??

Tang Tan really regretted it now. She should have known that at that time according to the plot, he would just bought that same foods.

She just silently thought on the side.

On the other hand, the tiger-face boy was more straightforward, he directly roared at Yan Zhen’s ears.

“Are you an idiot? What kind of snack did you buy? Is that enough? Huh? Ah?!”

Yan Zhen was stunned by his roar. In response he also regretted and hit himself, he cursed.

“Yes, I’m stupid! I just bought snacks ah! Damn it!”

Then he reacted again.

“Damn it! That’s not right? How the fuck was I supposed to know this was going to happen? Dd you know about it before?”

He asked the tiger-faced boy back, and the boy just scratched his head and stopped talking.

Then he turned his head to the naïve boy and asked.

“You, did you know?”

“I don’t know.”

The naïve boy shook his head.

Yan Zhen subconsciously wanted to ask Jiang Zhu but he saw him still seriously writing and drawing something. He completely did not pay attention to them nor the situation he was in. He was probably trying to find a way, so it was better not to disturb him.

So he turned his head and looked at the only girl in the dorm room.

Tang Tang coughed.

Is he trying to ask the same question to me?

Of course I know this would happen, should I lie?

But does it seemed suspicious that I had to asked him to buy something?

When Tang Tang was in state of deciding and fear of being suspected, Yan Zhen spoke up.

He didn’t ask Tang Tang, he just directly waved his hand and took up his own words.

“You certainly don’t know.”

….false alarm.

Tang Tang sighed with relief.

After this topic, the whole room was once again fell into silence.

And only Jiang Zhu’s hand writing on the paper could be heard clearly.

The sound of the tip of the pen on the paper seems to have a natural soothing power in such restless night. Not to mention the tall, slender and good looking person, behind the pen.

This person always seems to be like this, he was always calm at all times.

Tang Tang has been in love and was with him for three years. It seems that apart from the breaking up today, she has never seen a time when he was not calm.

“By the way, what did you buy?”

At that moment, the tiger-face boy spoke up once again. He turned his head to look at the girl still standing near the door and asked.

This girl was known to all of the people inside this room, and even the whole school. As girlfriend of Jiang Zhu, well now it should be his ex-girlfriend, right?

What’s her name again, it seems to be called—Tang Tang?

Startled by the shout, Tang Tang asked.


Tang Tang found that someone was talking to her, when she looked over it was the boy with a tiger-face and has a little bit of temper.

“Yes you.”

“I bought thirty bags of instant noodles, and some chicken legs and eggs, and twenty bottles of water.”

Tang Tang actually wanted to buy more, but the water was a bit too heavy and buying too much at once may cause suspicions by Yan Zhen.

But now that she thinks about it, she regretted her decision.

“Nice job!”

The tiger-face boy complimented.

Compared with Yan Zhen, who bought several pack of spicy fries and potato chips, Tang Tang was simply like a god teammate.

At this point, Jiang Zhu who had been writing and drawing stopped.

“You guys come over her, and take a look. This is some of plan for subsequent routes that you can use to escape.”

He turned the paper in the direction of the people inside the room.

Once Yan Zhen and the others heard this, of course they did not hesitate to go over.

But as they stood around the table in circle, they watched Jiang Zhu who called them over didn’t moved at all and when they look up to him, they found that his eyes was passing through them and looking straight behind them.

They were startled.

They couldn’t helped but feel chill on their backs, followed closely a scalp tingling feeling as their feet began to get soft.

No way…

It’s not like the zombies came in at this time, right?

Their hearts were beating like a drum, as the pounding on their overwhelmed them.

They stiffly turned their heads little by little.. ..
