“Just speak if you have something to say.” Luo Qing Chen took a deep breath, “I just woke up this afternoon and there’s still many things that I don’t know.”
Lan Zhi lowered her head before she started crying. Her hands tightly held the mug on the table as she said, “There were thirty people in our group and only half of us came out.”
“Half……” Luo Qing Chen was shocked as her fingers trembled.
“Of course you don’t know since you were out of it, but I also don’t know everything. I just know that Gu Shu died because of me……” When she said this, she slowly looked up with tears streaming out of her eyes.
Actually, she always knew that Gu Shu liked her. That young man with green dyed hair liked her for a very long time.
But she……loved and admired another man……
“Gu Shu, he……”
“You don’t know that in the last two days, people started killing each other just to survive.” Lan Zhi gave a cold laugh, “The classmates before for a bottle of water drew out their knives in this peaceful age.”
“So Mu Li Chuan……” Luo Qing Chen’s heart was shocked. Could it be that he was injured because of the water?
Lan Zhi trembled, “Is young master Li injured?”
“He……” Luo Qing Chen shook her head, “Let’s not talk about this. What happened after?”
“Young master Li and you were always at the front of the team. In the last two days, we couldn’t keep up with you.” Lan Zhi gave a bitter laugh, “Even I thought that I was going to die in the desert. The people around were all glaring at each other. Gu Shu gave me the last bottle of water and was stabbed to death by a classmate. And that person……also didn’t survive.”
“Then how did you get out of the desert?” Luo Qing Chen pursed her lips and said, “What else happened?”
“We encountered a small lake.” Lan Zhi looked at her and said, “A small lake in the desert.”
“A lake?” Luo Qing Chen suddenly understood, “Salt water?”
“Yes!” Lan Zhi nodded, “Although it was salt water, it was better than nothing. We had been poisoned and we all had fevers, so we would have died there if we didn’t have that water.”
Luo Qing Chen gave an understanding nod. But then her heart trembled, even her hands trembled. She could only tightly clench them.
She was very sure that she and Mu Li Chuan didn’t reach that small lake, so how had they come out? Also, where did they get……water?
“Qing Chen……” Lan Zhi saw that she wasn’t speaking and waved her right hand in front of her, “Your face looks very poor.”
“Ah.” Luo Qing Chen was surprised before a faint sparkle appeared in her eyes, “I……I’m fine. You can keep going……”
“Teacher Wang brought us out in the end. When we saw the highway, there were less than fifteen people left.” Lan Zhi looked at her and said, “We never heard from you or young master Li, but Teacher Wang said that your parents had already brought you away. I couldn’t find you, so I could only send texts……”
Actually, Lan Zhi knew very well that she just wanted to know about Mu Li Chuan’s safety through Luo Qing Chen.
Perhaps there was an impossible person in everyone’s heart. She didn’t want anything, as long as she could silently like them, she was very satisfied.
After waking up, the most terrifying thing was not seeing Mu Li Chuan again in this life.
There were some times where people’s emotions were the most transparent when life and death was involved.
