Chapter 194: Psycho is Dead
Ning Shu made a crying expression and asked worriedly, “What do we do now? I really did lose that gene essence. The situation back then was so dangerous with zombies all around, I don’t even know where I lost it.”
“You…” Phoenix was so angry she couldn’t even get words out. In the end, she gave a cold humph and left.
Ning Shu curled her lips in disdain before heading back in for dinner. They’ve been eating biscuits every single day so the taste almost made her feel like puking. However, these were convenient and didn’t go bad easily, so they were the best choice for travel.
The school doctor uncle had gotten milk from somewhere and was currently drinking it. When he saw Ning Shu come in, he asked, “What did she want to talk to you about?”
Ning Shu’s eyes whirled as she considered whether she should tell the truth or not. If she talked about the gene essence, wasn’t that giving him a warning? What if he decided to leave the group? However, she still told the truth. “She asked me about the gene essence.”
The school doctor uncle responded with a ‘oh’ and then went back to drinking the milk without asking Ning Shu for it. Ning Shu was a little moved. Uncle, you’re such a good person, even though you’re a pervert.
After leaving, Phoenix soon came back. This time, Phoenix wasn’t the only one that had come. Spider and Wolf was with her as well.
The moment Wolf walked into the room, he gave a cold humph and glared at the school doctor uncle with hostility in his eyes. His handsome face was a little worn out and he looked nothing like the local base tyrant he would become.
Everyone sat down around the table. Wolf, who was sitting at the head, gave a cough and tried to pull out an imposing manner. However, it just looked like false bravado.
“Phoenix, you can say it.” Wolf said to Phoenix. He seriously didn’t want to speak with this man. Whenever he saw this man, he would feel strangely oppressed.
In reality, this group was separated into two factions. One faction consisted of Wolf, Phoenix, and Spider, while the other faction consisted of Ning Shu and the school doctor uncle. The two groups relied on Phoenix to serve as the go-between.
“Do you know what we’re trying to do?” Phoenix asked the school doctor uncle.
The school doctor uncle took a sip of milk without speaking. Phoenix seemed to have gotten used to the school doctor uncle’s personality and simply continued, “Our goal is to find the gene essence.”
Everyone looked at the school doctor uncle, but there was no expression on his face. Phoenix felt a little defeated. This man was seriously hard to deal with. She had done a lot of missions, but she had never encountered a man like this that was completely indifferent towards her.
“This gene essence is capable of awakening a person’s special abilities and strengthening their body. As of now, there are more and more zombies appearing in the world, so it’s becoming increasingly difficult for humans to defend themselves. We’re searching for the gene essence in order to awaken the special abilities of more people so that we can put up a fight against the zombies,” said Phoenix with a serious expression.
The school doctor uncle finally finished drinking the milk. He pushed the biscuits he didn’t finish towards Ning Shu. The meaning was for Ning Shu to finish them, so Ning Shu silently ate the school doctor uncle’s leftover biscuits.
“If you guys are searching for the gene essence, then there’s no need to. That gene essence is only a half-finished product and Psycho is already dead,” said the school doctor uncle in a matter-of-fact tone.
“Pfff… cough cough.” Ning Shu choked on the biscuit when she heard the uncle say that Psycho was already died and hastily drank water to wash it down. He was calmly saying that he had died. What exactly was he trying to do? Fake death and then have people spread the false news that Psycho was already dead?
Wolf furrowed his brows and questioned the school doctor uncle coldly, “How do you know that? And how do you know that Psycho is dead? Who exactly are you? You’re the most mysterious person in this entire group. You haven’t even given your name.”
Suspicion also appeared on Phoenix’s face as she asked, “How do you know that Psycho is dead?”
“I was the one that killed Psycho,” replied the school doctor uncle calmly. A trace of pity appeared on his face. “He had destroyed the gene essence.”
“Pfff… cough cough.” Ning Shu choked again and had to pound on her chest.
