Chapter 46: Walk Openly
Fang Lin did not conceal his disdain at all.
The three of them entered the room where Cui Chong and Fang Qiu were imprisoned.
Fang Qiu was sleeping on the ground. She was curled up in a corner with her face hidden in the darkness. It was hard to see her clearly.
Meanwhile, Cui Chong was lying on the bed. He looked as if he was at ease.
When he saw Li Ran and the others, Cui Chong immediately got down from the bed and ran towards them.
“I’ve suffered so much grievance here,” Cui Chong exaggerated.
There were many people in the safety base who did not have cell phones or any means of entertainment. They could only work all day.
It was a struggle to move forward.
“I’ve already clarified the situation. Miss Li, you were drugged by Fang Qiu, which caused you to pester me. It’s all a misunderstanding.”
Cui Chong pointed at Fang Qiu as he spoke.
“Believe me, I have nothing to do with this matter. I felt bad seeing your condition, so I wanted to hide you in a safe place, but I ended up being discovered. If I knew that you were Brother Lin’s wife, I would have instantly reported the situation to him.”
Cui Chong’s voice was quite loud. Everyone outside could hear him clearly.
Fang Qiu looked up and saw a large number of people outside. Her heart sank and her face was pale. She slowly got up and staggered over. Then, she lowered her head and mumbled, “He’s right. I was jealous. Why is Li Tao so good-looking? Everyone takes care of her. It’s unfair.”
Li Ran heard what she said and replied calmly, “I’m sorry. My actual name is Li Ran.”
“Li Ran? You…”
“Li Tao was a fake name. Moreover, as far as I know, you didn’t tell my husband the truth at first. You only explained everything after the matter was exposed because you had no choice.”
Cui Chong continued to act as if he had nothing to do with the situation.
There were soldiers guarding outside the room and all of them had guns in their hands.
However, it did not scare Cui Chong.
In the end, Fang Qiu could no longer control herself. She cried bitterly and seemed to regret her actions.
She looked at Lin Nan and asked in a low voice, “What will happen to me?”
“Admitting to your mistakes won’t make up for the damage you’ve caused. Expel them at once.”
When the people outside heard his words, they all looked shocked and worried.
“You can get expelled after coming into the base? What exactly happened?”
“I don’t know. It seems to be quite serious.”
Lin Nan walked to the front of Cui Chong and looked at him directly. He curled his lips and said, “Take care of yourself.”
Cui Chong smiled casually and his gaze gradually shifted to Li Ran. He then frowned and said in an astonished tone, “If I knew that you were pregnant, I would have definitely been more gentle. Well, it’s okay. I will keep that in mind in the future.”
“Don’t worry, you won’t have a chance. The army is going to toss you right into a zombie crowd.”
Lin Nan’s expression was bleak.
Cui Chong looked at the soldiers who were coming towards him. Even though they were holding guns, he did not fear them. He steadily walked out and gave a middle finger to the crowd. Cui Chong’s subordinates surrounded him and together, they exited the door.
Before he left, the smile on his face became wider.
“You’ll regret it if you ever step out of this door,” Cui Chong said to Lin Nan.
He was very arrogant, as if he had already secured victory.
Li Ran had a bad premonition about this. However, she could only frown and asked worriedly, “Those people followed him here, right?”
“Yes, there are many more of them.”
Fang Lin narrowed his eyes and sighed.
“The people who followed him are the few capable individuals. They are the group that usually goes to scour for supplies. That man is ruthless. If I weren’t here, I’m afraid that you’ll have trouble protecting the base.”
Lin Nan could not even be bothered to lift his eyelids. He retorted, “Having you guys is more than enough. It’s no big deal.”
“Thank you. You really know how to flatter me.”
Seeing that they were about to leave, Fang Qiu panicked and quickly asked, “Can I still stay here?”
Li Ran looked at her in confusion.
“Why didn’t you follow him?”
“I dare not. He will definitely kill me…”
He already dared to kill in a society ruled by law, what more in an apocalypse.
