Chapter 475 – Sitting Here and Waiting for Death Isn’t My Style
Editor: Zephyr04 Translator: Jhung
Although the Air Force Regiment weighed on Ling Mo, it didn’t really affect his mood.
Regarding on how he wanted to deal with it, he already had a plan in mind—-
Since the other party wasn’t going to give up, then he wasn’t going to just sit still.
After cleaning up the battlefield a little bit and arranging things for Xiao Bai, Ling Mo returned to the hotel.
After going up the stairs, he went straight towards Lucy’s room, and pushed open the door.
Inside the room, Lucy was sitting on the bedside. Leaning against the wall next to her was Shana. Although she seemed quite bored, she was watching Lucy’s every move.
Seeing Ling Mo coming in, Lucy’s expression looked complicated. She opened her mouth as if she wanted to say something, but in the end, she said nothing.
Ling Mo pulled a chair over, sat down in front of Lucy, and asked, “You heard the sounds below, right?”
Both of them were sitting very close. The moonlight outside penetrated the window, and Lucy could clearly see the expression on Ling Mo’s face.
She seemed to wish that she could understand something from Ling Mo’s face, but apart from the paleness after a battle, she couldn’t see anything else…
If she had to say something, his eyes did seem to be a bit brighter than before, and he seemed to have more energy.
“Who… Who were they?”
Lucy had an expression that she obviously already knew the answer, but she still asked hesitantly as if she was still holding on to a glimmer of hope.

“They were sent by the Air Force Regiment.” Ling Mo said, staring at Lucy’s eyes.
Lucy’s face immediately paled.
After a few seconds, she looked at Ling Mo and suddenly smiled miserably, “Just kill me.”
“Why on earth would I do that…”
Ling Mo blinked and stared in surprise at this girl who suddenly turned from a cold violent woman to a self-pitying girl.
“Were all human females so emotionally unstable?” Since Ling Mo was usually around female zombies, he didn’t understand the thoughts of ordinary girls at all.
“She was just fine a few seconds ago. Why did she suddenly turn on death-seeking mode…”
“And she wasn’t the type that grabbed the other person with her hands, preventing them from drawing their sword, yet sorrowfully shouting “kill me…””
This girl… whether it’s her eyes or her expression, she made it clear that she was serious!
“Um… Did you get the wrong idea or something….” Ling Mo said bitterly.
With such a desperate and calm look, it made him feel uncomfortable….
“Why… Aren’t you going to kill me?” Lucy was taken aback for a moment, then said, “Aren’t you suspicious of me? For example, on whether I left clues for them to find you? Our Fire Group and the Air Force Regiment are part of the alliance after all….”
“This is the first time I’ve seen someone try to persuade someone else to kill them and also help them find reasons… Lady, that’s enough. There should really be a limit to how many times you want to seek death…”
Ling Mo murmured in his heart, spread out his palms, and opened a ball of paper, “Smell this. What do you think this is?”
Lucy took a close sniff, then looked up suspiciously, “Explosives?”
“Yeah. I found it downstairs. The other party sent a woman to plant explosives. Their purpose, of course, was to blow us all up… together. With that being said, you and I are both on the same boat. So why would I kill you?”
Ling Mo smoothly kneaded the paper ball up, and gave it to Lucy, “Besides, in order for me to deal with the Air Force Regiment, there are many things that require your help. Of course, I also have some other preparations on my side. The connections that I made previously can also be used this time. Even if I’m a low-class civilian, I’m not that easy to trample to death like they think.”
Not only will he not be trampled to death, but he’ll also kill them.
After receiving so much information at once, Lucy was also stunned for a while.
When Lucy first heard the explosion, she had wanted to check it out, but she didn’t expect Shana to block her as soon as she opened her door.
She didn’t want to fight against Shana, and judging from the aura radiating from Shana, even if she did, the probability of her being tied up and thrown on to the bed was as high as 99%. The remaining one percent was the probability of her being tied up and hung on a wall…
Seeing that she was being “guarded”, Lucy actually could guess what was going on.
She thought she was dead this time, but didn’t expect another reversal again.
It’s no wonder she thought so much. However, Ling Mo only asked Shana to watch her not because he was worried that she would run away, let alone to kill her, but to avoid letting her see Xiao Bai…
Truthfully, when Ling Mo had just learned that the smoking man’s task was to instigate Lucy, he also had doubts and had been upset.
But when the female team member blew herself up and Ye Lian found the explosives after returning to the hotel, most of Ling Mo’s doubts disappeared.
Whether it was to keep her quiet, or because the Air Force Regiment didn’t care about the FIRE group at all, or simply because the FIRE group yielded to the Air Force Regiment and gave up Lucy, she was also a target they wanted to kill….
In any case, the murderous intentions of the Air Force Regiment proved that Lucy was innocent.
Besides, Ling Mo was very clear that she didn’t leave any clues.
With mutant beasts and zombie leaders by her side, what could she possibly do?
“You want to fight against the Air Force Regiment?”
It took a long time for Lucy to react. Although the cold woman’s expression was a little agitated, she no longer dwelled on the previous question and went straight to the main point.
Ling Mo smiled and said, “Don’t be so surprised. The other party has already said that they wouldn’t let me go. Am I supposed to just run away and hope that they don’t find me?”
“I really wish I could persuade you to run away…” Lucy’s tone suddenly became more worried as she stared at Ling Mo with a complicated look.
Before Ling Mo could speak, the corners of Lucy’s mouth tore into a smile, “But I know you won’t run. At that time, when you blasted the helicopter, I found out that although you’re usually easy to get along with, if someone provokes you, you go insane.”
Indeed… It was the same even back when he was just an ordinary human. When someone had wanted to pursue Ye Lian, Ling Mo had been crazy enough to go look for them at another school to fight them alone.
Even though he was beaten horribly, he would definitely make sure that some of his opponents fall to the ground, unable to get up.
He would never admit defeat and would always do what he believed in. This was the type of personality he had, and it has never changed.
“I knew it. You’re so strong, but you always seem so relaxed… No matter how I look at it, you don’t seem like someone that’s just naturally gifted with strong powers. It seems that you must have suffered a lot in the past…”
Lucy looked at Ling Mo, took a deep breath, and made up her mind, “Tell me, how do you want me to help you? I’m also very upset with those that tried to kill me.”
“Huh? Aren’t you afraid of the Air Force Regiment?”
Ling Mo asked curiously.
“Of course I’m afraid. I’m just one person while the Air Force Regiment is the most powerful force in this area. But so what? Some people become more afraid of death the longer they live, but I’m different. We only have one life. It’s a good thing to survive, but if we live poorly, we might as well get bitten to death by a zombie.” Lucy snorted coldly and said.
At the same time, hidden from Ling Mo, her nails were digging deeply into her palms…
“Maybe… I’ll mutate one day…”
“But at least I’ll be able to do something that I won’t regret while I’m still a human…”
After bearing so much grief just to survive until now, maybe it’s enough…
For a moment, the scene of when the apocalypse first broke out appeared again in Lucy’s eyes.
Those hands that tried to come in through the cracks in the door. Those familiar but strange faces…
Ling Mo suddenly stretched out his hand and smiled gently at Lucy, “Then, I look forward to working together! I’ll definitely give them a taste of my power to that group of mice who think they’re invincible in this world!”
Lucy suddenly recovered, nodded vigorously, and shook her hand with Ling Mo, “Okay!”
After the two parties discussed some details carefully, noticing that it was getting late, Ling Mo stood up first.
Seeing Shana leave, Ling Mo, who was about to follow, suddenly turned around and asked Lucy in a low voice, “Can you tell me now, why I must send you back to the F group?”
Lucy froze for a moment, and then said frankly, “I wanted to… find a way to get you to join us and help conceal what happened this time. Even if the Air Force Regiment asks any questions, you wouldn’t get into any trouble.
“So that’s why.” Ling Mo nodded.
Humans can lie but their spiritual fluctuations will not…
Lucy is a very reliable ally…
