Xiao Ji has already boarded the car, and now I definitely can’t stop going to Yao Town.
He was anxious to go home because his parents were still at home, the zombies suddenly broke out, and the elderly parents were left alone at home. He was very worried, Bei Nuan understood.
Bei Nuan sat in the co-pilot silently, staring at the mountain road circling and extending in front of him.
no big deal.
The fact that Bei Nuan in the book is injured does not mean that Bei Nuan will also be injured.
It doesn’t have to be so coincidental, as soon as you go up the mountain you can hit the chaos that hurt Bei Nuan, even if you really hit it, you may not be able to deal with it carefully.
Xiaoji helped land travellers all the way to show the way, and the off-road vehicle drove along the mountain road with seven turns and eight turns to the mountains with ridges and ridges.
The roadside forest is deep and dense, and occasionally there are terraces in some places, and only one village can be seen at intervals of a long distance.
In such a place, there are fewer people and fewer zombies, and the car drove smoothly.
It was almost noon, and I finally saw it in the distance, on a steep mountain that was a bit higher than the surroundings, hidden by layers of green trees, it seemed that there were many houses faintly.
Yao Town is here.
Yao Town is a thousand-year-old town. This ancient town is unique and has always been built on the mountain.
Back then, a vassal king here rebelled, but he retreated all the way if he couldn’t fight, and finally built such a stronghold on the mountain, and became a king on his own.
So it is not so much a king as a mountain king.
The terrain of Yao Town is leaning against the mountains and the water, behind which are cliffs that cannot be climbed up. There is only one way up the mountain. It is easy to defend and difficult to attack. It is indeed a natural place to camp.
The mountain is self-sufficient, and the king happily guards this precious geomantic land, until he is old and dead, nothing happens.
Everything is good in Yao Town, except that the transportation to and from the mountains is not very convenient.
In recent years, many people in Yao Town have moved to live under the mountain with their families. Only one old house is left in the ancient town on the mountain, and there are basically no people left.
Until the last two years, someone suddenly discovered a place like Yao Town.
The dilapidated ancient town has its own natural attitude, attracting a group of tourists who love this authentic and dilapidated atmosphere.
The town on the mountain came back to life, opened shops and inns, and it was a little bit lively.
At the foot of the mountain, there are highways, and the highway radiates out a small road, extending in all directions along the gentle slope. The people of Yao Town have built a large number of neat bungalows.
“Where is your home?” Bei Nuan asked Xiao Ji.
Xiao Ji pointed to the direction of the bungalow on the side of the road.
Bei Nuan breathed a sigh of relief.
Bei Nuan in the book was injured in the ancient town on the mountain, so as long as he doesn’t go up the mountain, he should be safe.
He sent Xiao Ji home safely. Once Fang Chen’s last wish came true, the matter would be over, and then he hurriedly got in the car and left, nothing happened.
As the car drove closer and closer, Xiao Ji became obviously nervous.
There are sporadic “people” walking slowly on the road, sluggish and sluggish.
This place came all the way, and there were still zombies in the mountains and rivers.
Lu Xing pulled over and parked the car late, and first took Xiao Ji to the place where people lived on the gentle slope.
His house was just beside a small road on the hillside, with white walls, black tiles and a big red lacquered door. It was neatly cleaned, and Xiao Ji rushed to the courtyard gate in one breath.
The door of the yard was actually locked.
Lu Xingchi gently pulled the door and opened the lock for him. Xiao Ji didn’t care why he opened the lock so easily. He searched the house from house to house for the first time, but he didn’t find any family members.
“Dad? Mom?” Xiao Ji was a little worried.
“The door is locked, the room is very tidy, no one has ever turned it over, and the table tops have been cleaned up, and there is no littering.”
Lu Xing calmly helped him analyze.
“Let’s see if the food and valuable things are still there? If the things are gone, it should be where they went, and they didn’t go in a hurry.”
Only then did Xiao Ji calm down and rummaged around.
“The rice warehouse is empty, a lot of things are gone, even the chicken coop is empty. Nowhere else, they must have gone up the mountain, there is my old house in the town on the mountain…”
He was halfway through, and Lu Xingchi suddenly passed him. , Flashed out to go out.
When Xiao Ji followed to the yard, he saw Lu Xingchi with a cold face and was facing the gate with his crossbow.
In the yard, Jiang Fei also stood in front of Bei Nuan and Du Ruo Tang Tan, with daggers faintly sleeved in his hands.
At the gate, stood a group of people who also carried short knives.
There were four or five people on the other side, all men, with the same vigilant expression.
They first asked: “Who are you?”
They looked like they were dressed up as locals, and Xiao Ji hurriedly stepped forward.
“I’m the son of this family. My father’s name is Ji Feng. We just came back from the field. These are my friends.”
Hearing this, the other party relaxed a little even though he didn’t seem to know his father very much. “Here Almost all of the people have gone up the mountain now, and your parents guessed that too.”
Xiao Ji’s eyes showed hope, “Really all up the mountain? Then I will pass.” The
man scanned him up and down . You have to pay the opening fee.”
Xiao Ji was rescued directly from the bank by Lu Xingchi, with nothing on him, he was a little anxious.
“My family’s ancestral house is on the mountain, do I have to pay for the opening fee?”
The man didn’t let it go, “It’s special now, anyone who goes up has to pay.” Think about it and say, “Forget it, you’re a local, it’s cheaper for you.”
How cheap he is, and Xiao Ji has no money.
This is a big problem for Xiao Ji, but not for Bei Nuan.
Kakitsubata first to ask: “That’s what he wants to open up the hill to charge fees for something to eat ah yes rice flour.????”
The man shook his head, “no shortage of mountains to eat, as long as the valuable things.”
Listen very magical.
At this time, there are still people who don’t want to eat, but only want valuable things.
Bei Nuan knew why.
It is clearly written in the book that people in Yao Town have been used to hiding in the ancient town when they encounter natural disasters and man-made disasters, leaving the gate of the ancient town alone.
This was the case when we encountered wars, and it is the same when we encounter zombies now.
The habit handed down from the ancestors, every household collected grain, so as soon as the news of the zombie outbreak came through, many people carried the grain and carried things directly up the mountain.
Bei Nuan asked curiously: “Do you want cash, then?” The
man nodded and replied: ” Yes , cash jewelry, everything is fine.”
He was still willing to accept cash.
The man looked at Bei Nuan again, “We are very familiar with the gatekeeper. You can give you a discount if you hand the money directly to me.”
Bei Nuan quickly said, “We don’t need him, he’s the only one…” He
didn’t say anything yet. After that, he was interrupted by Lu Xingchi, “How much does it cost for the six of us to go up the mountain?”
Bei Nuan turned his head to look at him in surprise.
What is Big Boss Lu doing up the mountain? It’s rare to pass by Yaocheng, feel the scenery is pleasant and happy, and plan to go up the mountain for a day trip to the ancient town?
In the original book, Lu Xing came to Yao Town late for a reason.
At that time, it was because of a mudslide on the road that flooded the road. When a group of people was about to abandon their car and walk forward, they happened to encounter a group of zombies in a nearby village.
Lu Xing in the book has no abilities, and Jiang Fei and two people guarded everyone and retreated, fighting a bit hard.
Although nothing happened, all the food he brought with him was left in the car, which was not enough.
Yao Town is the nearest place with supplies nearby. A few people came and went up the mountain into the ancient town to find food.
This time I drove here, which was different from the book. I took another road. I didn’t encounter mudslides or zombies. There was Bei Nuan, and of course there would be no shortage of supplies.
But Lu Xing had to go up the mountain for no reason.
Probably I want a good person to do it to the end and send Xiao Ji home.
Bei Nuan called out the task bar, glanced at it, and Fang Chen’s name was still (2/3).
Having arrived at Xiao Ji’s house, the task is still not completed. It seems that Xiao Ji must be sent to the family he is thinking about before he can truly fulfill Fang Chen’s wish.
There is one hour left in the countdown, and it seems that the ancient city of Yaozhen has been set.
When Bei Nuan was thinking about it, he heard the man say: “You have six people, it costs at least 6,000 yuan.”
Not to mention 6,000 yuan, 60,000 yuan is not a problem.
Lu Xingchi gave Bei Nuan a wink, and Bei Nuan immediately peeled off the backpack on his back.
Bei Nuan pretended to put his hand into the bag, actually opening the briefcase containing cash in the space and counting out a wad of money from it.
Bei Nuan took out the money.
Seeing a thick stack of brand-new tickets, the eyes of the group of people lit up together, staring at Bei Nuan’s hand piercingly.
“Several elder brothers, but we have more than five thousand dollars in total.” Bei Nuan held the money with a look of reluctance.
“Just over five thousand?” the man asked.
“If you don’t believe me, there will be no more.” Bei Nuan opened the empty backpack to show him.
Then he asked carefully: “Could it be cheaper for us?” The
rich is not revealed, it is always right to bargain.
The man swallowed his saliva and asked, “What’s your total?”
Bei Nuan squatted down and carefully ordered one by one. After a long time, he finished counting, “A total of five thousand and two.” The
man and his companion After discussing it, “Forget it, we want a whole, let you keep the two hundred.”
“Leave a hundred more, and three hundred for us? Okay?” Bei Nuan persevered.
Suddenly, she acted up and down, with a pitiful face, as if the three hundred dollars were her life.
Lu Xingchi and Jiang Fei both watched her acting calmly and expressionlessly. Du Ruo couldn’t help but wanted to laugh, and turned his head to face the courtyard wall and pretended to cough.
Only Tang Yuan was the fiercest, and it seemed that he suddenly became interested in playing with Bei Nuan.
He said sincerely: “That’s right, just leave us three hundred. Look at so many of us, we only give you this little money in total, and we are going to starve to death.”
He and Bei Nuan are both black and white. Dividing tomorrow’s innocent eyes, the man really couldn’t hold the pleading gaze of these two eyes, and said, “Okay, then I will leave you three hundred. Follow me.” When you get
out of the yard, you will go up the mountain. road.
The mountain roads are all old stone steps, which are cracked, steep and long, and climbing up can make people tired and leg cramps.
Bei Nuan deeply suspected that this place is so high that maybe even zombies are not willing to come up.
There are several dead bends along the road, which will roll into the deep valley below if you are not paying attention. It is indeed a good place for defense.
After climbing for a while, the ancient gate of Yao Town appeared in front of him.
The ancient town is hidden in the misty half-mountain clouds, and the vicissitudes of the city walls are covered with moss, climbing vines, almost covering the dark brick color, and there is a tower next to the door that is expected to be used as a guard.
The gate was thick and heavy, tightly closed.
The man stepped forward and knocked on the door.
The watchman on the tower had already seen them, and came over and opened the door slightly.
The man whispered a few words to him, and the door opened. They brought in Bei Nuan and locked the door again.
The first thing the men did after they entered the door was to make a pile with the guards, sneaking up the tickets, and you divided the money one by one.
As soon as Bei Nuan watched their covert actions, they knew that they might not have crossed the road to open the door for people to collect money.
Bei Nuan thought to herself, this town seems to be quite safe now, but is it really possible with their way of opening the door and letting others go after receiving the money?
Some people in the town passed by and smiled at them: “You let people in again?” The
man raised his voice and said, “These are all relatives of the town people in the city. They just came back!” The
man took the money. Turning around, he said to Lu Xingchi and the others: “I need to check it first to see if there is any injury.”
Although the place is remote, the inspection process is not bad. Bei Nuan and the others were immediately taken away by men and women, and the wounds were checked carefully.
It seems that although they let people go casually, there is a strict inspection system that keeps them safe until now.
The wound on Jiang Fei’s head was almost healed a long time ago, and the scratch on the back of Du Ruo’s hand was originally on the surface, and the scab had long since fallen off, and it was not regarded as the same thing.
Probably because no one has been injured and has not mutated, no one has ever been able to last that long.
The houses in the ancient town are situated in the shape of a mountain, stacked on top of each other. From the bottom to the top, the houses above are misty and misty.
As soon as Xiao Ji checked it out, he pointed to an old house on the mountain and said that it was his home.
There are still a lot of people in the town, and there are shops open on the side of the road.
It looks normal, but in the end times, it looks very normal.
In addition to the townspeople who originally lived under the mountain, there are also some tourists who happened to be trapped here.
In addition, there are also people like Bei Nuan, who are obviously not locals, and probably have paid money to take refuge.
The town is too remote, and the population has declined in recent years. Many people have gone out to work or simply moved out. There are many dilapidated houses in the ancient town, but there is no place to live.
Xiao Ji led everyone hurriedly up the mountain, where a group of people were coming down.
The head is a man.
This man was too conspicuous, Bei Nuan saw him at a glance.
His facial features are slightly deeper than ordinary people, surrounded by a group of people, calm and gentle, but with the grace of a superior.
His age is a mystery.
Judging by his face and figure, he should be about 30 years old.
But if you just look at those eyes, your eyes are so sophisticated and sophisticated, as if they have had a deep experience, and they don’t look like a young man at all.
What’s more, he also wore a loose and comfortable linen shirt, a string of red sandalwood beads hanging on his hands, and a pair of cloth shoes on his feet, properly dressed as an old man.
The most special thing is that he still holds a full-length yellow striped tabby cat in his hand.
The civet cat is not small, its fur is greasy and slippery, and its big tail flicks and flicks.
At the first glance, he had a pretty good time, lying on his head in his master’s arms, arrogantly behaved like sentient beings with those amber eyes.
When Bei Nuan saw the cat, he knew who it was.
It is written in the book that the person holding the cat is called Xie Yuanqing.
His ancestor was from Yao Town, but he didn’t live in Yao Town for a long time. This time he brought his brothers to take refuge.
He claims to be a business man. Seeing his posture and affiliation surrounded by a group of people, he doesn’t know what kind of business he is doing. It feels very suspicious.
In the book, he and Lu Xingchi met with them in Yao Town, because of different ideas, they had a festival.
Now two groups of people are going down the mountain and the other going up the mountain.
The road up the mountain is a bluestone slab. This section of the road is particularly narrow and steep, and the two groups of people meet on a narrow path.
Lu Xingchi’s gaze stopped for a moment on Xie Yuanqing’s face, and he slid over, politely letting him go to the side of the road, so that Xie Yuanqing and the others could get off first.
Xie Yuanqing also saw that Lu Xing was late, perhaps because he rarely saw such a good-looking person, he looked at him a few more times, and he was actually very polite.
Xie Yuanqing hugged the cat, motioned the person behind him to step aside, and said to Lu Xingchi: “You guys first.” The
two of them were giving way to each other, Xiao Ji suddenly passed them, dashing several stone steps in three and two steps, and rushed. I went up and shouted: “Mom!”
About a dozen steps, a woman dressed as a local in her fifties was walking down. She was taken aback when she heard the voice, and she found Xiao Ji with her eyes, and immediately ran down. Down.
Bei Nuan thought with relief, this is Xiao Ji’s mother.
Bei Nuan called up the task bar, and as expected, Fang Chen’s name changed to (3/3).
Before the countdown ended, Fang Chen’s wish was successfully fulfilled, and the Notre Dame’s value rose steadily.
Xiao San said that the rewards were “rich”, and it was true that the Notre Dame’s value rose so much that Bei Nuan was quite satisfied.
Bei Nuan was happy, and a rapidly spinning scroll wheel suddenly appeared on the interface, turning dazzlingly.
This time Bei Nuan has experience, and now he is the target person for another mission of Our Lady’s Wish.
What did Xiaosan say last time? Randomly draw within a radius of 50 meters.
I don’t know who can be drawn.
Bei Nuan looked around for a while, a little worried.
This is the busiest place in Yao Town. There are shops on both sides and people behind the shops. Within a radius of 50 meters, I don’t know how many people are involved.
Bei Nuan prayed silently in his heart, it is best to draw out the people in his team, to realize the three wishes of Du Ruo and the others, it is not too easy.
Sure enough, it was probably because there were too many names within fifty meters, and the wheel turned for a while before it slowly stopped and settled on one name.
Who is this?
The name seems to be a woman.
Bei Nuan was extremely anguished, and it seemed that Man Yaozhen would go to this woman named Li Dahua next.
Bei Nuan took another look at the task time that was randomly selected. Fortunately, there were more than 70 full hours, nearly three days, which should be enough-if they can find people as quickly as possible.
Just thinking about it, suddenly someone called her name.
Bei Nuan realized that she was too busy watching the task and was too distracted. He didn’t notice that Lu Xingchi had already climbed several steps.
Xie Yuanqing was still standing by the side of the road, looking at Bei Nuan with a smile.
His eyes were as deep as ink, and they stopped on Bei Nuan’s face, waiting patiently for her to return to her senses, without urging her.
Bei Nuan hurriedly said embarrassed, and jumped up the steps in three steps in two steps, chasing Lu Xing late.
When passing by Xie Yuanqing, Bei Nuan suddenly heard him soften and whisper in a low voice: “Dahua, what do you want to eat tonight?”
Was he just calling “Big Flower”?
Bei Nuan turned back suddenly and saw that he was gently touching the tabby cat in his arms.
He continued: “You can’t buy any good things here, can you make do with it? When you get home, I’ll make some good food for you.”
