Quick Transmigrating Second Female Lead's Counterattack Chapter 206
“Sister in law, that…I don’t really understand.” Xu Yi hesitated before speaking up. “En, Ming family? MingYe planned to start the plan next month. For the time being, I’ll let them get what they want while simultaneously making them spit out their treasures. But I didn’t say that they were going to sit at the top for long.” XunMi innocently blinked her eyes. They didn’t have long to live anyways. She might as well extract all their value while she still can.
Xu Yi froze for a second. It seemed this sister in law wasn’t that simple.
“Alright, everyone get to work. Tomorrow, you’ll go to the trading conference center to pick up your missions.” Ye MingYe stood up. Everything had been discussed, why weren’t they leaving? They were interrupting his time with his wife.
Everyone else was able to read between the lines. They all scurried out on their own.
Song ZiQian took his own group to register as a hunting squad. They prepared to go out on the mission together tomorrow. Ling Chen also needed to go add in their new members, as well as find Ming Liang.
After a quiet night, XunMi thought her luck was finally taking a turn. However, when she saw two women in white at the base gates, she put a hand to her forehead. The two did look similar in both figure and their fragile appearance. They both have a white lotus flower atmosphere. Any man would feel pity for them. The two of them were even chatting happily together right now. They could practically pass as twins.
Following XunMi and Ye MingYe out, Xu Yi and Ling Chen also saw the two of them. Xu Yi didn’t think too much about it. Ling Chen immediately spoke out. “What’s wrong with Cheng XinYao? Why is she with that woman?” He hadn’t forgotten that that woman had cursed at him before.
“Is there something wrong with that woman?” Xu Yi raised an eyebrow. Why did he feel as if so much has happened since the last time he saw boss?
“That woman is absolutely insane. She even dared to covet for boss. Doesn’t she know she should look in the mirror first?” Ling Chen didn’t like Ming Mei so he naturally had nothing good to say about her. In the process, he gave Xu Yi a summary of everything that had happened on their way to B city. After listening, Xu Yi was also speechless. This woman truly was strange. But first, why was XinYao with that woman? “It’s XinYao’s first time here too. She doesn’t know any of this. Let me go talk to her.”
Cheng XinYao had level 2 water abilities. Although her level wasn’t high, water abilities were useful in the apocalypse.
Ling Chen snorted coldly and hurried forward to catch up with the two of them.
Xu Yi’s dimmed. He didn’t want to overthink but…The base’s military was under the control of another major. They were also the ones to distribute the missions. Currently, that major in charge was standing in a big military truck, passionately making a predeparture speech.
XunMi leaned on the doors of her own red sports car and finally couldn’t resist but yawned.
Others might want to sell this sports car in exchange for taller wheels or more interior room. Meanwhile, XunMi had practically made this car her signature item. After all, beautiful cars, like beautiful women, had always been seen as a sign of success, even more so during the apocalypse. But only three people have been in her car: her husband, Ling Chen, and Song ZiQian. As for everyone else…sorry, no room.
After the announcements ended, everyone took their seats in either their own cars or military vehicles. Soon, there were only a few cars left in the area. XunMi had one hand on the steering wheel while she rest the other hand on the frame of her door leisurely as if she was going on a vacation.
“Boss, what do you think those old men are planning? Why are they moving so many people out?” Ling Chen leaned into his seat while asking the person in front of him.
Ye MingYe looked at the tablet in his hand. The screen displayed a map of today’s route. “I heard that there were level five zombies.” They naturally wanted their energy stones then. They were able to reach this level in less than half a year. The evolution of zombies was truly quick. XunMi didn’t care too much. “Even if they get the energy stones, they won’t be alive for long to use them. But I did hear that the research lab seemed to have found the virus that started the apocalypse. On the day that the virus spread, a meteorite had fallen. They were saying that finding it could allow them to potentially discover the way to end the apocalypse. Who knows if it’s true or not.” She didn’t believe it. The original book didn’t mention anything about a meteorite. Based on her memories, there had been no unusual signs the day prior either. When they woke up the next day, everything had suddenly changed.
XunMi felt that some apocalypse online stories were more reliable. Didn’t they always go for reasons like a mad scientist’s studies accidentally causing the worldwide disasters.
“Who cares whether it’s true or not, as long as they can actually find a way to end the apocalypse. But just based on those old leeches? That seems a bit impossible.” Ling Chen spoke honestly. He didn’t trust those people that only knew how to sit in the lap of luxury would be able to accomplish much.
“They’ve been doing experiments on human subjects.” Song ZiQian mentioned.
XunMi accidently pressed down on the accelerator, almost slamming into the car in front of them. She hurriedly turned the steering wheel and pressed down on the brakes. Everyone leaned forward from the sudden force.
“ZiQian, what did you just say?” XunMi thought that she might have heard wrong.
“When I found out, they were using corpses as subjects. But now…I’m not sure.” Song ZiQian explained. XunMi frowned. Hearing the cars behind her honking, she released the breaks and brought the car back onto the road.
“I should have known sooner. They definitely wouldn’t have given up on experiments with human subjects.” Her eyes flashed. In the last life, Ming XunMi had almost been sold off to the lab by Ming family. The original book didn’t give much details on the matter. Later, XunMi had caught up with her dear husband so had forgotten about this. In the two months at the base, she hadn’t heard a single rumor about the labs so she hadn’t worried too much about it.
“Don’t blame yourself. It’s not your fault.” Ye MingYe patted XunMi’s hair. He pulled his hand back quickly though. He didn’t want to distract her from driving.
The hand that XunMi had around the steering wheel tightened. “MingYe, I don’t want B city’s base. I want to create our own safe haven in the apocalypse. I want us to be the light in the apocalypse!” XunMi’s ambition and determination had been fired up. Someone else’s things were always someone else’s. Even if you steal them away, they could never be entirely yours.
Since they couldn’t change others, then she could change herself. It was about time that she adapted to the cruelty in this new apocalypse world.
Ye MingYe’s heart ached for her. But he couldn’t take his eyes off her. A determined XunMi was too dazzling.
