It's annyoing I want to eat people - Chapter 20
When Li Nansheng came down from the tree, Zhou Zihan asked him curiously, “Nansheng, it’s really strange. Once Li Xinyu died, those zombies seemed to become a lot more stupid. How did you know?”
“I don’t know. It’s just my intuition. Other zombies are attacking fiercely. Only Li Xinyu hides far away, and I observed her a few times. Li Xinyu’s behavior was very strange. That’s why I climbed into the tree to kill Li Xinyu. After the first shot missed, Li Xinyu turned her head and looked at me. Then all the zombies ran to the tree, it also made me more convinced of my speculation. Li Xinyu stood in the distance and controlled the zombies. “
Zhou Zihan nodded admiringly, and said, “If it weren’t for your intuition, we would have been dead here.”
Li Nansheng shook his head with a bitter smile, “I made a mistake in this operation. I should have thought that the net closing tactics were easy to fail. At the beginning, I should have adopted conservative tactics, let some people participate in the net closing operation, and let some people stay outside the forest.”
Zhou Zihan patted his brother on the shoulder and said, “Who could have thought that those zombies would be smart? Brother, don’t blame yourself too much.”
Li Nansheng sighed helplessly, knowing that he would have to bear the consequences of the failure of this operation anyway.
“Everybody retreat quickly,” he shouted to the team.
When everyone retreated to the open space outside the forest, Li Nansheng ordered everyone to stand in line, and the captains of each team checked and reported the number of casualties of the team. Due to the death of the captain of the fourth team, Li Nansheng himself counted the casualties of the first and fourth teams.
The total number of casualties was 16 people died and 23 people were bitten.
Li Nansheng silently recited the number of casualties in his heart. He couldn’t help beating drums. Coupled with the death toll of their team the previous day, there were nearly 50 people in total, including a team leader.
He stood in the same place and thought for a moment, then ordered the bitten member to go out.
Li Nansheng looked at these desperate faces with a heavy expression. This was the situation he didn’t want to face the most.
“You also know that if you have been bitten, for as long as three or four hours, or as little as one or two hours, you will become zombies who only know to bite. For the safety of the entire island, this process is unavoidable. Do you have any unfulfilled wishes, just tell us, we will do our best to accomplish it.”
Those who were infected by the R virus heard Li Nansheng’s words, and some cried in despair.
One of them, a guy in his 30s, cried the loudest. He cried and said, “I am 33 years old. My parents and relatives were infected in the year of the outbreak of the virus. In recent years, I have been like a lonely ghost. I have no home. My only wish is to find a good girl and set up a home on the island. Now it seems that it can not be realized. Although I have had a hard time in the past three years, I have hoped to live. If I die, I have nothing. Some time ago, I often dreamed that there were no zombies in Yunjing City, and everything returned to normal. My mother cooked breakfast for me in the kitchen, and my father sat on the balcony flipping his cell phone. Funny to say, once I dreamed of my girlfriend, but I didn’t see her face,” the guy said, wiping his tears, then smiled.
“Team leader Li, don’t worry, I won’t resist. I don’t want to become a zombie to harm other people on the island.”
Li Nansheng looked at him with red eyes and said, “I’m sorry. If I hadn’t made a wrong judgment, the team wouldn’t have lost so much.”
But, it was too late to say anything now.
After that, everyone successively expressed the grievances accumulated in their hearts, and most of the so-called unfulfilled wishes were just wanting to live an ordinary life like before.
After that, they saw that the time was almost up, and they all agreed to let team leader Li carry out the “final process”. The gunshots rang out one by one. Li Nansheng watched the brothers’ heads burst one by one. Their bodies fell, blood burst out on the ground and people shed tears several times. The scene was so cruel. If good people were killed, then what was the difference between them and the executioner?
After everything was over, Li Nansheng returned with the team members. After returning, he reported to the section chief and minister as soon as possible, and Xu Zongheng was furious.
“What?” Xu Zongheng slapped the table fiercely and shouted, “A captain also died? Li Nansheng, what did you do?”
Li Nansheng lowered his head and didn’t bother to explain. Anyway, no matter how the upper head condemned him, he would suffer. He deserved to suffer, it’s not unjust.
Section Chief Zheng who was standing on the side quickly explained, “Minister, I heard from the second team leader that this time the zombies were very weird, with plans and strategies, and very difficult to deal with, so the loss was relatively heavy.”
Xu Zongheng sneered, “Zombies still have plans and strategies? Do you treat me as a three-year-old kid? If you want to avoid responsibility, find a reason that sounds reliable.”
“Minister, I don’t want to avoid responsibility. You can punish me as you want. I won’t complain,” Li Nansheng looked at Xu Zongheng and said.
“Is that how you talk to your leader when you make a mistake?” Then Xu Zongheng slapped the table again and glared at Li Nansheng angrily.
Seeing Li Nansheng’s expressionless silence, Xu Zongheng was so angry, “When dealing with more than 20 zombies, more than 50 people died, including a captain. I really don’t know what’s in your mind. Is it a pig brain?”
Xu Zongheng habitually pressed the pen in his hand and said, “I don’t think you should be the captain, so as not to continue to put your team members in danger.”
Halfway through, Xu Zongheng suddenly stopped pressing the pen to organize his thought, “Li Nansheng is removed from the position of captain of the first team, and the rest of the first team and the fourth team will merge into a team, all of which belong to the fourth team. As for the captain, chief Zheng, you can arrange it.”
Zheng Hai nodded and said, “Zhang Yong will temporarily take over the captain position. This kid usually responds quickly to tasks and has strong execution ability.”
Xu Zongheng nodded, “Let’s do this first.”
