Chapter 605: Huaxia Base

The mutation had allowed those roe deers to eat flesh, but when there was no flesh to eat, they would still eat grass. Therefore, Lin Qiao didn’t need to worry that they might die of starvation in her space, because she had a grassland there.
She only wondered if the grasses in her space were enough to feed those roe deers.
After catching about twenty roe deers, Lin Qiao returned to where she skinned the first one. The snake had caught another roe deer, which was still alive. Clearly, the snake was waiting for Lin Qiao.
“We can leave after finishing this,” Lin Qiao glanced at that roe deer which was wrapped in the snake. It opened its mouth wide to bite the snake, yet couldn’t do any harm to the latter. The teeth of those mutated roe deers were able to hurt humans, but the scales of a level-five mutated snake might break them.
Lin Qiao turned to give Lu Tianyi a glance and asked, “Do you want some more?”
Lu Tianyi shook his head, even though he still felt hungry. He had eaten two legs, which weighed tens of kilograms in total. He actually ate them all!
“You can eat these animals occasionally to satisfy your sense of taste, but they can’t quench your hunger. Zombies have a distinctive desire to eat humans. The satisfaction that you now want is no longer the same as the satiety from your stomach,” Lin Qiao said while skinning the second roe deer.
“Human blood contains some kind of energy that can allow the zombies to evolve slowly. Zombie nuclei can do the same.”
While eating, Lu Tianyi watched Lin Qiao skin the second roe deer, cut off the legs, and throw the rest to the snake. Clearly, the trunk of the first roe deer didn’t satisfy Black’s stomach. That snake needed someone to skin its food!
After feeding the second roe deer to Black, Lin Qiao waved a hand and released a stream of dark fire to burn out the two roe deer skins on the ground, also cleaning the blood-stained snow nearby.
The zombie dog was still eating his roe deer, having opened it up to wolf its flesh. After it finished the roe deer, Lin Qiao put it back into her space along with Lu Tianyi and the snake, then turned and left.
Down the mountain, the roads were deeply buried under snow, and it was impossible to drive. Lin Qiao turned invisible and walked on the snow field alone, leaving a series of footprints behind her.
‘If someone saw this, would they think that there’s a ghost?’
She knew how to vanish the snow though. As she swung a hand forward and sent out a flake of dark fire, the snow on the ground disappeared within a moment. After that, she took out the car from her space and melted all the snow ten meters wide before the car.
Then, she got into the car and started driving forward. Meanwhile, she sent her dark fire forward as well, ahead of the car.
One hour later, she got near to Huaxia Base. Instead of driving closer, she put her car back into her space before the Huaxia people discovered her, then turned invisible and climbed onto the fence wall.
Standing on the fence wall, she wore a serious face. That base was really extraordinary; merely the weapons on the fence wall had given her a faint sense of crisis. The buildings in the base had all been remodeled. The base gave out a vibe of future technology, looking highly developed.
That base had recruited almost all the best scientists in the country who survived the apocalypse. For that reason, it grew much stronger than the other bases, and became the no. 1 base in the country.
That base owned all kinds of advanced technologies, and that was one of the reasons that the other bases were afraid of it.
What concerned Lin Qiao weren’t those weapons, but the few strong vibes that she had sensed from the base.
One of those vibes caught her attention, because it was very similar to her own vibe. That vibe was much weaker than hers, but was special. If she guessed right, it belonged to that zombie dominator.
Even though that vibe was rather weak, the suppression it gave out was no weaker than what she could give.
What kind of zombie was that?
Lin Qiao frowned slightly, then leaped off the tens of meters tall wall. Huaxia Base’s fence wall was higher than the walls in the other bases.
At that moment, the people from the other bases had mostly arrived. As a few people were still on their way, the ones who had arrived had been chatting relaxedly.
“Oh, are you saying that… once you’ve succeeded, we’ll be able to inject it into our bodies like vaccines, and then we won’t be spotted by zombies anymore? Are you sure?” Wu Chengyue was sitting on a couch in the room that Huaxia base had arranged for him. Apart from him, Xiao Licheng and Moli were also in that room.
Of course, Wu Yueling was there as well.
Moli raised her eyebrows cold-facedly, then said in a bland tone, “What? Don’t you believe in my technologies? I’ve worked with Doctor Liang for a couple of years. We started this project together, and only I am able to continue it.”
The project that she mentioned was actually those important files which Liang Dashu gave her before his death. She was the doctor’s assistant, so except for the doctor himself, she knew the project the best.
She was not as smart and knowledgeable as Liang Dashu, but with enough time, she would be able to finish the project.
“How much time do you need? A year? Two?” Wu Chengyue asked her smilingly.
“A year or two… As long as there’s a possibility, I’ll keep doing it. Do you disagree?” Moli looked at him and said.
“No! As far as the virus study goes, you’re the boss. You can take as much time as you need,” Wu Chengyue shrugged and responded while chuckling.
“If we develop a drug that can make zombies lose interest in us, the antidote that Huaxia Base developed would become much less valuable, right? After all, its effects can only be delivered when you spread it in a zombie crowd,” Xiao Licheng said with a frown.
“How can that be? Of course, it’ll still be valuable! Don’t you want to kill all the zombies in the world? Think about it. Before the apocalypse, the world’s population was over seven billion. Out of them, six billion turned into zombies. How many years will it take us to destroy them all?” Wu Chengyue shook his head and said to Xiao Licheng.”
“The whole world… I guess we still can’t kill them all even in hundreds of years.” Xiao Licheng was scared by the term ‘world’s population’. Thinking about Wu Chengyue’s question, he gave his answer.
Five years had passed since the apocalypse, and every base had built a relatively mature environment for people to live in. So, from now on, people needed to think about how to destroy zombies, because humans wouldn’t always live under the panic that the zombie virus created.
As intelligent creatures, the strongest power of humans was creation.
Xiao Licheng saw things differently from Wu Chengyue, because they were at two different levels.
