It's annyoing I want to eat people - Chapter 6
“Have you heard of today’s morning meeting?” Zheng Siqi yelled in the laboratory with a gossipy look.
As soon as they smelled gossip, several researchers immediately gathered with their heads outstretched.
Zhao Xiaoxue pouted her small mouth and snorted coldly, half complaining and half coquettish, and said, “My professor Han’s perfect male god image has been ruined, and I blame it on Li Xinyu.”
“Why is it related to Li Xinyu?” Zheng Siqi asked.
“Don’t you understand? If Li Xinyu hadn’t deliberately rolled down the safe passage, would Professor Han go to the Zombie City instead of her? If he hadn’t gone to the zombie City, Professor Han wouldn’t have met the strange female zombie, and Professor Ji wouldn’t have stunned him in public at the meeting. Professor Han is a human being, not a God. So it is normal for him to make mistakes occasionally.”
Zheng Siqi followed Zhao Xiaoxue’s divine logic and continued to joke, “Professor Han really fell down from the altar for a while, and I feel that he will be laughed at by the CDC for a year.”
Zhao Xiaoxue was very upset that others ridiculed her Professor Han, but because Zheng Siqi was a senior sister, she couldn’t talk back, so she had to pout and walk away.
Li Xinyu rolled down the safe passage and didn’t actually get seriously hurt. After lying on the bed for more than ten days, she returned to the CDC.
It was hard for Li Xinyu to return to the laboratory, which she expected. She also thought of the consequences when she deliberately rolled down the stairs in order to escape from the task, but she didn’t expect that the people in the laboratory would run on her like this. In particular, the two female researchers who had a crush on Professor Han for a long time secretly clenched their fists and vowed to take revenge.
Looking at the mess of the experimental platform in her own area, Li Xinyu sighed and began to look down. She looked at several beakers with broken bottoms and sighed in her heart. The funding of the laboratory had been tight. Since the previous year, the laboratory equipment had been registered to individuals, and she had to pay for damage..
Now she had to spare money to buy equipment. Which meant that she would have to eat steamed bread and pickled vegetables for a few weeks.
While cleaning up the experimental platform, she regretted that she had rolled down the safe passage that day.
Following Professor Han for the previous two years, she had always been out of group and had a bad relationship with several other researchers. She occasionally heard other researchers talking about her behind her back. But she didn’t care. These days, friends might turn into zombies. She didn’t need friends. She just wanted to live a few more years. Once the CDC’s antiviral serum is successfully developed, she would be able to reunite with her parents.
“Oh, someone’s leg is fine,” as soon as Zhao Xiaoxue entered the laboratory, she began to shout in a strange way.
When Li Xinyu ignored her, she felt angry and walked to Li Xinyu’s side and kicked her injured leg with the tip of her high heels.
She was “hissing” in pain, but Zhao Xiaoxue smiled, “Oh, it still hurt, hahaha.” She continued to hit her feet.
“Zhao Xiaoxue, don’t deceive people too much,” Li Xinyu was angry and annoyed, so she pushed Zhao Xiaoxue’s shoulder with both hands.
But after pushing, she immediately regretted it. At that time, Zhao Xiaoxue was lifting her feet and wanted to kick again. When she pushed, she fell down unsteadily. Half of her body fell on the experimental platform behind her, smashing all the beakers and test tubes.
She really didn’t expect that Zhao Xiaoxue would fall and throw the experimental equipment. She was only angry for a moment and pushed her.
The experiment platform on which Zhao Xiaoxue fell on was Zheng Siqi’s experiment platform. Zheng Siqi was doing electrophoresis in the next laboratory. When she heard the movement, she ran over. She wanted to watch the show, but she didn’t expect to see her experiment that lasted for a week ruined.
“Zhao Xiaoxue, what are you doing? I’ve done the experiment for a week, and finally got something. The result has not been tested yet!” Zheng Siqi shouted with a red face.
“Senior Sister, Li Xinyu pushed me,” Zhao Xiaoxue quickly defended.
Zheng Siqi turned her face to Li Xinyu, and said in a bad mood, “Why did you push her? Is the laboratory a place to fight? Do you want me to tell Professor Han and expel you both?”
When Zheng Siqi mentioned Professor Han, Zhao Xiaoxue was silent.
“My experiment will not be held accountable for the time being. But who will pay for the equipment?”
“She pushed me. I wouldn’t have fallen if she didn’t push me. My ankle is still twisted,” Zhao Xiaoxue pitifully defended.
It was Zhao Xiaoxue who kicked my leg first,” Li Xinyu said with red eyes.
“I’m too lazy to care about your grudges. I’m so angry with you. You two will pay half the money for the equipment tomorrow morning,” then Zheng Siqi left angrily.
Li Xinyu felt that she had been greatly wronged. She laid down on the experimental platform and sobbed. When she came, it seemed that everyone was targeting her. There was so much equipment and money to pay early the next morning. Where could she find so much money?
Early the next morning, Zheng Siqi, after collecting Zhao Xiaoxue’s money, walked to Li Xinyu’s experimental platform and asked for the money.
“I can’t get so much money at once. Can I pay it when I get my salary next month?”
“Then I can’t do my experiment until next month. When the time comes and Professor Han asks me why, how can I explain it? Besides, it’s not much money, Zhao Xiaoxue paid half of it.”
Half of it? Li Xinyu looked at Zheng Siqi with red eyes. If Zhao Xiaoxue hadn’t deliberately found faults, she wouldn’t have pushed her down. Now, would she have to thank her instead?
Zheng Siqi was very upset by her look, and said, “Why are you looking at me like that? I am also a victim, okay? I have been working hard for a week and the experiment was ruined by the two of you. I haven’t settled accounts with you yet.”
Li Xinyu softened, “I really can’t get that much money all at once, Siqi, could you buy it yourself? I will pay you back as soon as my salary is paid next month.”
“How can I do that? Zhao Xiaoxue took the money from her parents. You can ask your family for it as well,” Zheng Siqi looked embarrassed.
“Family…My parents have passed away,” at the end, her voice suddenly dropped.
“Well, then borrow it from a friend.”
She shook her head, “I have no friends either.”
“You don’t even have a friend.” She made an incredible look, “Alas, you are usually antisocial and lonely. How can you live with such a character?”
Zheng Siqi frowned and sighed, “If you are like this, I can’t handle it.”
Li Xinyu had already thought of the situation and could only continue, “Then give me a week first and I’ll find a way, okay?”
Although Zheng Siqi was reluctant, she could only agree, “Well, if you delay, I can only report to Professor Han.”
She nodded, smiled and was about to say thank you, but heard Zheng Siqi whisper when she turned around, “It’s really annoying to meet a ghost.”
Li Xinyu’s smile froze on her face. The heart seemed to fall into the abyss with a thud.
She stood there in a daze, listening to Zheng Siqi turning her head and complaining to Zhao Xiaoxue, “Oh, it’s not easy for me to collect money.”
Zhao Xiaoxue glanced at Li Xinyu with disdain, and replied with a smile, “I didn’t know such a thing to be true. Well, it’s the grandson who asks for the money, and the uncle who owes the money, hahaha,” Zhao Xiaoxue laughed fakely, and she didn’t forget to observe Li Xinyu’s face when she laughed.
Zheng Siqi really couldn’t talk with Zhao Xiaoxue. She gave him a blank look and walked away.
Li Xinyu stood blankly in the laboratory, looking at those smiling people in the laboratory. Those smiles poked her heart back and forth like a knife. She thought: If they became zombies or were eaten by zombies, would they still be so happy as now? Could they still laugh?
Why was she being bullied alone? Why was she unhappy in life?
‘Since I’m unhappy, let’s go to hell together.’
Li Xinyu felt that she had come to an end. Everyone in the laboratory seemed to be targeting her, not giving her a way to survive, she just escaped a mission.
In order to pull the people from the laboratory and even the people from the entire island to hell together, she came up with the only quick and effective way.
On the top floor of the laboratory building of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, there was an isolation room dedicated to detaining zombies that had been captured for normal clinical trials. People living on the island had some resistance to R virus, but no one had been found to be immune to R virus exposure.
If she released all the zombies in the isolation room, what would be the situation? Could the armed forces of the island successfully suppress these zombies?
In that case, the safety zone wouldn’t be so safe.
