Immortal in The Apocalypse – 56

Chapter 56

Standing in the middle of the street, Zhu Lin touched her nose and looked at the chaotic streets around her. She remembered the way back very clearly, but why did she still get lost after walking back and forth on this road so many times? Sighing, she regretted rejecting Hua Nan’s company.

When she was still hesitating which way to go, Long Shengyu had already found her. He is sitting on the roof of a building and observing her. He rested his chin on his hand and looked at her with interest. He has been following her for several days, but the best moment for him is every time he sees her embarrassed appearance when she is lost, he thinks she is very cute and wants to see more of her different expressions.

After a while, Zhu Lin felt that no matter which way she chose, she couldn’t find her way back to the Hua siblings’ rental apartment. Breathing out another helpless sigh, she raised her head and looked at the roof where Long Shengyu was sitting. As soon as she looked up, she saw him looking at her with interest, and felt a little annoyed for no reason.

Frowning, she suppressed the irritability in her heart and stared at him. After hesitating for a few seconds, she still pursed her lips and said, “Young Master, can you help me?”

Hearing her clear voice calling him, Long Shengyu raised his eyebrows in a good mood. He loves hearing her voice, but he is happier when she’s talking to him. There’s a slight smile at the corner of his lips when he said, “Is there anything I can do for you?”

A little embarrassed to ask a stranger for help, Zhu Lin’s face blushed slightly. She took a deep breath and said, “I’m lost. Can you help me find my way back to my rented house?”

Looking at her slightly blushed cheeks, Long Shengyu felt that she was even more beautiful. Like flowers blooming in spring, not as cold as her usual expressionless face. Staring at her, another memory flashed in his mind.

“Ah Yu, don’t tease me anymore.” She whispered shyly.

Seeing her shy look, he smiled and couldn’t help but want to tease her more. He leaned towards her, whispering in her ear. “Then… Lin’er has to beg me.”

His warm breath brushed against her ears, and her already pink face turned red. She was so ashamed that her neck and ear tips were also stained in red. Seeing her fair skin flushed like a blooming flower, he couldn’t help lowering his head to taste it.

When his soft and warm lips touched her neck, she shrank her neck and pushed him away. She blushed even more. “Ah Yu, I beg you…”

“Mhm? What do you beg me for?” He asked softly, and dropped more kisses on her smooth skin.

“Stop teasing me.” Her helpless voice made his heart tremble.

Her voice was so soft that he could barely hear it, but the corners of his lips rose, and he stopped kissing and licking her neck. His lips raised slightly on her neck, and he whispered hoarsely: “Lin’er, what should I do? The more you beg me to stop, the more I want to do it.”

She blushed and glared at him, pursing her lips and said, “I’m going to be mad at you!”

He couldn’t help but hug her, and chuckled softly. “My Lin’er is so cute. What should I do? I really love you. More than my life….”

Memories come and go quickly. After the memory faded, Long Shengyu was still stunned. The face of that woman in those memories was not very clear when he was with the little white rabbit. But this time, her face was very clear. And now, the same face appeared in front of him and stared at him. Same eyes, same lips, same face, and same voice. There is no doubt that the woman in those memories is her.

Zhu Lin kept staring at him, seeing his face change from time to time. The originally interested face turned into a blank face, and finally he froze. All these changes took only a few seconds. Seeing his astonished expression, she was even more sure that there must be something wrong with his head.

Not getting his answer, she shook her head and sighed. “Forget it.”

Looking away, she chose a direction at random, turned around and left. Seeing her walking away, Long Shengyu came back to his senses and hurriedly chased after her. In just a few seconds, he had already walked to her side, while glancing at her from time to time.

Zhu Lin was caught by his hot gaze from time to time, felt uncomfortable and couldn’t bear it anymore. She stopped and looked up at him. While speaking, there was a hint of displeasure in her voice.

“Can you stop staring at me?”

Not knowing which ghost possessed him when he heard her words, before his brain could react, his lips had already moved.

“Then you beg me.”

When his voice fell, both of them were shocked. Zhu Lin was surprised that he could say such shameless words to a stranger like her, while Long Shengyu was surprised that he couldn’t control himself in front of her.

The two stood there motionless, and the atmosphere suddenly became very awkward. After receiving her shocked gaze for a long time, Long Shengyu coughed lightly to cover up his embarrassment. His cold face was still calm, but the redness at the tips of his ears sold out his true feelings.

“Well… I’ll take you back.”

After speaking, he walked quickly in the right direction. Looking at his back, Zhu Lin blinked again and again, unable to believe what just happened. Was she teased by him just now? Unbelievable!

Long Shengyu didn’t hear her footsteps, turned around and saw that she was still standing where she was, her eyes widened with surprise. Thickening his face, he asked her calmly. “Still not coming?”

Zhu Lin blinked again to clear her mind, and silently followed behind him. This time, they walked side by side, and the one who kept peeking was Zhu Lin. She looked at him with a mix of curiosity, doubt, and scrutiny. There was even a hint of interest in those clear eyes.

From time to time, when her eyes met his eyes, she turned around in a hurry while pretending to be indifferent. Seeing her like this made him feel inexplicably happy. It was a long way from there to the rental apartment of the Hua siblings, but Long Shengyu still felt that it was not far enough. Standing in front of the apartment building, he regretted not walking slower.

“Um… Thank you for your help.”

He lowered his head and saw Zhu Lin’s embarrassed face. He nodded and said, “You’re welcome. If you want, I can accompany you in the future.”

Shaking her head, she said, “There’s no need. I’ll take my leave first. Goodbye.”

After she finished speaking, she turned around and walked inside. Long Shengyu looked at her disappearing back but another memory flashed in his mind.

He looked at the woman standing in front of him in disbelief. His voice trembled when he spoke. “Lin’er, please don’t do this.”

She looked at him calmly, but tears streaming down her face uncontrollably. She opened her lips, but nothing came out. He could see that she had a lot to say to him, but after waiting for a long time, she still didn’t say anything. Looking at her painful face when she was clutching her heart, he really wanted to hug her and bear her pain.

He took a step forward, stretched out his trembling hand, and wanted to stroke her face. But before he could touch her, she took a step back and kept her distance. He stared at her and clenched his hand, lowering his outstretched hand.

“Do you really hate me? Lin’er… If I’ve done anything wrong, just tell me. I can change. Please don’t do this to me, I beg you…”

She shook her head, but she said, “That’s right. I hope you live until the day I kill you with my own hands.”

Her voice was cold and emotionless. Every word she said pierced his heart and left unbearable pain. Hearing her hurtful words, he laughed until tears came down. Glancing at her again, he said lightly, “I understand. If that’s what you want, then I’ll give it to you. I’ll wait for you there until you come to kill me.”

She kept shaking her head, as tears streamed down her cheeks. But what she said the next moment really broke his heart. “Goodbye.”

After a few minutes, the memory faded. Long Shengyu stood where he was, tears streaming down his face. He raised his hand to touch his cheek, where it was wet. The confusion in his eyes was clear at a glance. His heart ached so much that he couldn’t help but clenched his hands tightly.

Looking up at the apartment building, he asked the question he really wanted to know. 

“Who is he? Who am I?”
