Immortal in The Apocalypse – 55

Chapter 55

Standing on the roof, Long Shengyu watched the golden light shone on the old warehouse for a few seconds before disappearing. It was the same light he saw when he was kidnapped twenty years ago. All the memories before the kidnapping disappeared, and everything started with the golden light.

That day, he woke up after being beaten by the kidnappers, and saw that his body was enveloped by brilliant golden light. At that time, he was very scared, but he didn’t dare to shout. Lying in his own blood, he stared blankly at the golden light covering his body as the wounds slowly healed.

The same thing keeps repeating to this day. As long as he was injured, the golden light would envelope his body and heal all his injuries. After a few times, his secret was discovered and he was sent to another place. This is the beginning of his nightmare.

At the beginning, he wished that the golden light would never appear anymore, nor would it come in the future. But despite his desperate prayers, the golden light became more and more intense by days. The more serious his injuries, the stronger the golden light.

It wasn’t until a few months ago that he finally managed to escape from the lab and destroy it. But that didn’t lessen his hatred for those people and the golden light. In his eyes, it was this golden light that made his bad luck even worse.

Glancing coldly at the old warehouse, Long Shengyu turned his head to look at the group of people walking away. His eyes fell on the young woman in ice blue Hanfu. Seeing her laughing and talking to other men inexplicably made him a little annoyed.

Frowning, he looked for the little white rabbit, but he couldn’t find it. His frown deepened, but he didn’t follow them. He knew that even when he was hidden, the young woman could feel his presence if he got too close.

It’s annoying, but he still wants to find the small white rabbit. Without the rabbit, he wouldn’t be able to see those memories at all. He has an inexplicable attachment to those memories, and his desire for those memories is like a drug addiction.

Resisting the urge to ask the young woman where the rabbit is, he looks away from her disappearing back. There is no need to be impatient. He knew they would get out of here and have a good chance of getting the rabbit from her later.

Thinking that he could see those memories again, a faint smile appeared on the corner of his lips. He took one last look at the locked old warehouse building before disappearing from there. In the dark warehouse, the physical strength of the thin man slowly recovered, and his pain also eased a little.

Zhu Lin was talking to Ye Yu when she suddenly felt a sharp gaze on her. She turned and looked around, but saw no one. Tilting her head, she was confused, but decided to let go. Her intuition told her that she would meet the owner of this gaze soon.

The preparation to leave the Iron base was ongoing smoothly. Every day, she would go to the old warehouse to visit the thin and stubborn man. Today, she also went there as usual.

Opening the lock, she walked into the dark warehouse. She didn’t need to illuminate her surroundings with anything since she came at noon. The sunlight seeping through the cracks in the warehouse was enough for her.

“You’re here again.” A hoarse male voice came from the same corner as before.

“Yes. Have you changed your mind?”

As she asked, she placed the basket on the ground in front of him. This is the food and water she asked Hua Bei to prepare for her. The thin man glanced at the basket and knew there was food and water in it by smelling the scent, but his eyes remained calm.


Sighing, she said, “It’s a pity. We’re leaving in two days. You really don’t want to come with us?”

The thin man chuckled lightly, then coughed for a while. He panted heavily and looked at her calmly. “What is your purpose?”

Zhu Lin looked straight into his eyes and said, “I just think that your talent will be wasted here.”

He shook his head and smiled slightly. “No. That’s not right. There must be other reasons why you keep coming to me.”

She stared at him for a while before saying, “Can you tell me your name?”

He just looked at her silently while she said, “My name is Zhu Lin, and I know that something is happening to you recently.”

He still didn’t speak, but when he heard her words just now, she could see a trace of nervousness in his body language. She didn’t force him, but lifted the cloth cover in the basket, and pushed the basket in front of him.

“You should eat first. I’ll be back tomorrow. Give me a different answer, and I’ll answer your question too.”

Leaving this sentence, she left him alone. After locking the warehouse, Zhu Lin looked up at the tall buildings near the warehouse. She smiled in the direction of the roof, said a few words without sounds and left.

Long Shengyu looked at her receding back with some annoyance. How dare she call him a pervert just now. He didn’t like her calling him that. He followed her by jumping from one roof to the other, looking at her from time to time.

After following and observing her for the past few days, he already knew that she had severe direction blindness. Every day, she has to spend hours trying to find her way home that only needs a twenty minute walk from the old warehouse building. At first he thought it was funny to see her distressed look when looking for her way, but after seeing her a few more times, he couldn’t help but feel irritated instead.

How could her friends let her walk around alone? If it was him, he would accompany her everywhere so that he would not worry about her. Long Shengyu was stunned by his own thoughts, and stood there without moving. Suddenly, a memory flashed into his mind.

“Lin’er, you’re lost again. I really can’t let you go alone. This really worries me.” He held her hand while sighing helplessly.

“Then you should hold my hand and not let go.” She raises her beautiful face and smiles gently at him.

“Mhm. I will listen to you.”

Fragmented memories fade as quickly as they appear. Coming back to his senses, Long Shengyu tousled his hair in frustration. He looked down, but couldn’t find Zhu Lin anymore. Frustration turned into irritation, as he searched for her while muttering in a low voice.

“This woman is really troublesome.”
