ng for her to go down, then everything would be fine.

But it was not the reality.
It was not as easy as she thought.
There was still danger coming into her house and even parking the car.
She could not even get downstairs, she had to ask her uncles to pick her up.
Do they still want to take the risk knowing the threats of zombies?

Fu Erdie put herself into her cousins’ situation.
If her parents were at home with her, they would have picked them up and taken a detour to get her cousins.
Then, if her dad risked going upstairs to get them and got scratched by a zombie, would she be willing also to save her relatives?

In the bottom of her heart, she was not willing to save them.
But a part of her says she needed to help them.
She was firm.
Her father was more than his 50s.
He was not a young and strong man anymore to toss and turn.

Although it was his Dad’s nature, he would definitely save his nephews and nieces.
But in her view as a daughter, it would have ruined his life.
She was not selfish but she could not bear to lose his dad.

Did she still have to ask for the help of her youngest uncle?

Even though she was hesitant she still dialed her youngest uncle’s number.

After many trials of the dial and minutes of ringing, she finally got through.

“We have already left! Don’t blame us for not looking for you.
I really dare not to wait at your house!” said her cousin who answered the call.

She faintly heard the voice of his younger uncle’s reprimand on the other end of the phone.

Her cousin yelled, “Then, what else can we do? We could not even collect our things, Pa! Then, we have time to save someone’s life?! Unbelievable, huh!”

“Say it again, you kid!” her uncle replied.

“That’s how it was!”

Her auntie, the youngest uncle’s wife, suddenly roared at them while she was driving.
“Hey! You two, stop arguing! If you want to make noise, get out!”

Her younger uncle took the opportunity to grab the phone and said apologetically, “Fu Erdie, stay at home.
Don’t panic, and wait for ZF’s rescue, okay?”

Fu Erdie knew what situation she had to face.
She breathed deeply and calmly said, “Actually, I just needed to check on you.
I was going to say, you don’t need to look for me, I have food and water at home, I can stay, just take care of yourselves.

After that, the call ended.

In the end, Fu Erdie was alone.
Even though she prepared herself for this kind of situation, she suddenly felt sad.
She indeed said goodbye to her uncle, but she could not help but regret the chance she had wasted.

She smiled bitterly and weakly leaned back on the sofa.

She thought that if she had run out much earlier to her uncles in the first place, she might have had a chance to be safe.

But what had she done? In the beginning, she was forced back by a zombie.
Then, she laid on her floor and waited for the universe to give her the illusionary alien powers.
Plus, she still did not know where Zhao Xiaolu was.
She did not try again to go out to fight zombies to find her relatives.
Now, she decided to stay at home and wait for the rescue.

Fu Erdie lowered her head and stared at the floor.
She thoughtlessly called other people in her contacts.

Her grandmother lived with her aunt and cousin.
She remembered that her aunt had a car.
In her mind, she would try to contact them and ask to take her with them.

Fu Erdie knew that she would be fine along the way.

Her dog came to her, whined and licked Fu Erdie’s hand.

She smiled.

“With my cute doggy baby~”

Her grandmother’s phone could not be reached.
There were also no messages from his aunt and cousin.

Her friend, Cen Xiyang, who worked in the evening shift also did not know what to do.

Fu Erdie thought and assumed that Zhao Xiaolu was likely to have been killed.

She went in front of a surveillance monitor located in the corridor.
The number of zombies increases because of people coming in and out.

Then she went to her pantry and kitchen.
She counted her supplies.

She first counted the instant noodles.
She had two boxes of noodles, each had 24 packs per box, for a total of 48 packs.
That was enough for her to eat for a month.

There were also some vegetables and fruits in the fridge which should be eaten first in the next few days or else it would be rotten and be wasted.

When the whole building paid the property management fee before, they would send 10 kilograms of instant rice and another five kilograms of rice grains which could be eaten for another two months.

But that was only her theory if there was no virus outbreak.

She only knew how to cook rice and some easy to cook dishes throughout her life.
She knew the process of how to cook rice.
To cook, she would need an electric rice cooker or liquefied petroleum gas.
But, most of the disasters and apocalypse she had watched, water and electricity would be cut off in the next few days or weeks.
What can she do to cook rice if she did not have electricity?

Fu Erdie was clueless.

She concluded that rice should be eaten early.

There were still several jars of homemade kimchi that her mother gave during the spring festival.

As for dogs, there were 20 kilograms of dog food that could also be eaten for the next two months.

Fu Erdie touched the well-behaved dog beside her, “We are going to live and die together.”

The dog rubbed his head against her hand.

After she calculated her approximate date of death, Fu Erdie remained calm.

She looked at the remaining vegetables and sweet potatoes that she rarely consumed.
She sighed, got up and turned on the balcony light.
She pried off the ornamental plants in the flower bed, and planted all the potatoes along with them.

Although, she was sure that in a month or two she would die.

But, what if…

What if she could grow a vegetable field herself at home?

But, she did not know how many times to water and fertilize the plant.
She did not even know if those vegetables were planted in the soil, she did not know how many hours that the plant should be exposed to sunlight.
There were many things in the world that she did not know how to do.
Then, include the problems with the insects and animals in planting.
What if she got sick on what she had planted?

For example, the small kumquats, peppers and green onions were planted on the balcony for fun,

would they grow well and taste good?

She had many reasons not to plant such as the small flower beds on the balcony were not enough to support her after two months or when she consumed all her stocks.

She suddenly became emotional.
Even in the shortest string in heart, she had the will to survive after this agony.
She let herself plant the vegetables.

She needed to dig out the ornamental plants and she did not throw those flowers away.
Hence, she found a courier box, and put a thin layer of soil in it, watered it with some water, and then she put the plants on top.

Fu Erdie intended to hang those dug-up plants on the ground at the bottom of the building at dawn tomorrow.
To let them fend for themselves and give them gratitude to be with her for the last years.

After the plan was made, Fu Erdie slept peacefully.

The air conditioner was blowing dutifully, and she had no nightmares or dreams that night.

The next day, before dawn.
It was just five o’clock when Fu Erdie woke up.

She opened the balcony window to see what was going on outside.

The chaos that had been going on from the first day she encountered a zombie had not still subsided until now.

There have been three car accidents as far as her eyes could see.
Those different kinds of vehicles were blocking the road that made the road more congested.
