Don't Pick Up Boyfriends From The Trash - Chap 143
After coming back from Slave Town, Xinzhi Gu has changed a lot.
This change is in the eyes of onlookers.
One day, Yan Sun returned to the town in the morning after a night drive, and he met Ding Gu and his wife who were jogging in the morning.
He tossed a pack of cigarettes to Xinzhi Gu, and received an indifferent “thank you”.
Yan Sun froze for a moment: “…… Valley Vice, what did you say?”
Xinzhi Gu looked up, his voice a little flat: “Thank you.”
Yan Sun : “……” Who is he thanking? Who is thanking me? For what?
While Yan Sun was messing with the code, Xinzhi Gu, with a white towel on his shoulder, ran away after Qiuyun Ding.
Xinzhi Gu listened to Qiuyun Ding and tried to reach out and talk to the children in the town, but almost always failed at first.
The only people who are willing to talk to him are Wanwan He, who is a new human, and Jing Yiming, who loves to play with Wanwan’s sister.
“They are afraid of me, not of Yun Qiu, and not of his leopards.” Xinzhi Gu asked Wanwan He and Jing Yiming rather confusedly, “Why?”
Jing Yiming hid behind Wanwan He like a bunny, cautiously measuring Xinzhi Gu , not daring to speak.
Wanwan He has been brought up by Ding’s father and mother for all these years, and speaks with the serious tone of an elder: “Well, I think maybe you are too serious. You don’t like to smile, you have to smile, like brother Ding.”
Xinzhi Gu frowned slightly, “Is this important? No one smiled at me when I was a kid, and it’s no big deal.”
Wanwan He touched his shoulder in an old-fashioned way: “Then you’re pathetic.”
Xinzhi Gu was caught off guard by the little girl and thought carefully about how to react at this time, so he took a cigarette out of his pocket and gave one to Wanwan He.
This dirty deal was caught by Qiuyun Ding, who sent them both to stand at the wall for five minutes.
Xinzhi Gu is not discouraged.
He was so mobile that he cut dozens of pieces of cardboard into circles and brought them to Xiaochi Chi to briefly explain his idea.
Xiaochi Chi was surprised to hear his idea, but he drew several sets of different cartoons for him, which took nearly a month.
Xinzhi Gu took the pictures and went to the young boys playing in the town, sat down next to them, handed out the cards, and got straight to the point: “Take pictures, do you want to play?”
Most of the half-grown kids were used to playing VR games and had almost never played the old street games like shooting pictures and playing marbles, and were quickly brought into the pit by Xinzhi Gu.
Within half a week, the streets were filled with the popping sound of children taking pictures.
Someone on a bicycle rode through town, and the bell had to ring from the east to the west of the street, accompanied by a long, drawn-out shout: “Get out of the way, be careful of the collision!”
Xiaochi Chi thinks Xinzhi Gu is not a bad move.
But after two days, he realized something was wrong.
…… as the initiator of the game, Xinzhi Gu, even with the children to seriously win or lose.
When Xiaochi Chi took the boss to catch him in the pile of children, a stack of cards had accumulated beside him, and the children he was playing with were in tears, sobbing as they exerted all their strength to play cards, but they still could not compete with Xinzhi Gu’s skillful hand and wrist pressure.
The scene and atmosphere is simply weepy and miserable for those who see it.
Qiuyun Ding’s footsteps Xinzhi Gu has heard familiar.
He turned back to him and raised his eyes to look at him.
The other party’s eyes rolled and signaled him to come out.
Xinzhi Gu tucked the picture into his pocket and stood up, approaching in confusion, “I didn’t smoke.”
Since the last time Qiuyun Ding told him not to smoke in front of the kids, he hasn’t done it again.
…… He has never cared about what the world sees, but if Qiuyun Ding does, he can learn to pretend to care.
Needless to say, Xinzhi Gu was a good student, loving his marks and taking his social etiquette seriously, something he never cared about before.
He had been very disciplined since his last angry five-point deduction, so he didn’t understand Qiuyun Ding’s purpose in calling him out until he heard the other man ask, “How much did you win?”
Xinzhi Gu vaguely understood something and said vaguely, “Didn’t win much.”
Qiuyun Ding directly pointed out: “You are a former soldier, and a child to fight hand strength?”
Xinzhi Gu calmly pleaded: “That’s because they are not good, they don’t know the tricks.”
Qiuyun Ding also did not spare him much, and showed him his hand.
Xinzhi Gu clutched his trouser pocket and deflected, “This is what I won.”
At times, Xinzhi Gu is frighteningly mature, but at other times he is stubborn and stubborn like a child, particularly obsessed with his favorite things.
Qiuyun Ding gazed at him stoically, his flat hand raised upward, “…… valley vice squad.”
Xinzhi Gu is still tilted half of his body, the heart is already a cold.
He has a lot of trophies marked with Qiuyun Ding. Past, present, all of them.
The socks that Qiuyun Ding had just bought and hadn’t had time to wear once; the potato chips that he had left over and forgotten in the corner of the drawer; and the camouflage army jacket that he had put on for his fake sleeping self. These are the only favors and light in Xinzhi Gu’s life. He doesn’t want to throw them away, so he collects them and occasionally takes them out one by one and puts them in front of him, just looking at them, his heart is filled to overflowing.
Now he has to return the spoils of war to Qiuyun Ding, and he really can’t do that.
Xinzhi Gu’s eyes slumped in disgust for a moment before he, with a glimmer of hope, made an impossible wish: “I’ll give these back to you, and you can draw me a set.”
Qiuyun Ding said, “Yes.”
Xinzhi Gu gave a self-deprecating laugh, and it took a few seconds before he understood what Qiuyun Ding meant.
His eyes widened slightly and he froze for a moment, not even having time to smile, before he hurriedly made his request, fearing that Qiuyun Ding would back out: “I want The Little Prince.
“No.” Qiuyun Ding refused unequivocally.
Qiuyun Ding smiled, “Lieutenant Gu, don’t force me to say hard words.”
Xinzhi Gu then stopped talking, even without much change in his expression, and obediently pulled out the pile of cards he had accumulated and handed them to Qiuyun Ding.
But only Xiaochi Chi knew that his remorse value was rising a little, all the way from 60 to 65.
Every little difference between …… and the past is a reminder to Xinzhi Gu that they can never go back to the Qiuyun Ding and Xinzhi Gu of the past.
Xiaochi Chi took the cards, but did not leave, nor did she hand them out directly to the children. Instead, she came to the group of children, sat down cross-legged with a big smile, and joined the battle naturally: “Whose turn is it?”
A little girl with a short haircut softly said, “It’s time for Brother Valley.”
She pulled out a card and stole a glance at Xinzhi Gu: “Brother Gu is not coming to fight?”
Xiaochi Chi said, “He gave up the card to me. I’m his captain and he’s afraid of me.”
The children exclaimed in awe, “Ah-”
With that, Xiaochi Chi drew a card in a dashing move. The hand fell with a loud enough sound, but failed to turn over any of the cards.
Xiaochi Chi : “……”
He responded with an embarrassed look and the children burst into laughter.
Xiaochi Chi scratched his scalp and said, slightly unconvinced, “Come again.”
After a dozen rounds, all the cards in his hand were reasonably lost.
The children laughed at his weakness, and he not only took it all in, but also cooperated by showing a small expression of embarrassment and defiance, with his earlobes reddening a bit.
There was the smell of a cooked meal coming from inside the adjoining house, and the children left in the sunset, bouncing happily with the cards they had won.
Qiuyun Ding, on the other hand, patted the cold dust behind him, got up and walked back to Xinzhi Gu, asking with a smile, “Do you see how to lose?”
Soft daylight passes through the fog and envelops Qiuyun Ding.
He asked Xinzhi Gu, who never admits defeat to anyone, and didn’t expect an answer from him. He reached out and touched the head of the panther, who had been crouching obediently behind the children, and walked off with his boss in the direction of the motorcycle, leaving Xinzhi Gu with a backdrop.
Xinzhi Gu was smart enough to understand what Qiuyun Ding meant.
With these children, it is important to learn how to win and how to lose.
Even if he can’t understand it, he will learn it well in the coming days.
With this in mind, he raised his hand and stroked his chest.
…… He also hid three cards in his chest.
Those were his favorite ones, so he purposely picked them to keep with him, a rabbit, a carp, and a rose.
There was a rabbit, with a rose in his mouth, who wanted the fish under the water to accept his heart.
It does not know how to tell their love, do not know how to make the fish accept him, can only jump around anxiously, and even jumped into the water, making a mess, but the fish still refused to come near him, only to swim around not far from him.
Rabbit anxious, painful, but he gradually found that the pool of water to swim, seems to be quite comfortable.
It gradually understood why the fish like to stay in the water, and refused to go ashore with him.
So this rabbit is determined to try to learn to swim and let the fish see himself every day until one day, willing to take his rose.
At the same time.
061, who witnessed what just happened, cried and laughed.
He can vouch for Xiaochi Chi with his personality, he is not pretending, he is a real dish.
For the first time in his life, he had seen a person who, after losing badly on the basis of strength, could still walk with such a great momentum, even making such beautiful excuses, which made him want to pinch Xiaochi Chi’s face.
So after jumping on the motorcycle, the panther crouched on Xiaochi Chi’s back and gently touched the side of his face with his paws, deliberately and carefully retracting the tips of his paws for fear of hurting him.
The leopard’s flesh pad is too soft, Xiaochi Chi could not resist pulling it over and squeezing it several times, and then jerked his spine a few times.
A few handfuls of the “disobedient” big leopard coaxed smooth hair, Xiaochi Chi just repeatedly defeated frustration suddenly subsided a lot, put on the helmet, start the motorcycle.
The leopard is still lying on his back, simulating a human embrace, the force exerted by the arms slowly closing in, embracing the whole of the person in front of him in his arms, the action is hidden, but gentle and unusual.
A few days later, Qiuyun Ding’s team set out again, still with the goal of gathering supplies.
Within a strange city, they surprisingly encountered the long-lost man-eating creeper.
The good thing is that they have long had experience.
Three well-stocked gasoline guns spewing orange-red tongues of fire swept past, forming an extremely dense attack network, the burned creepers could not stop issuing childish screams, leaving a scorched stump, fleeing away.
After clearing the hurdles, Xiaochi Chi and his team did not dare to slack off and drove half a block to a long-empty 24-hour automated convenience store to rest.
The freezers in the supermarket were filled with frozen fruits and vegetables that had lost all their moisture, and some sushi rice balls that had long been inedible.
As with dealing with monsters, the team stopped collecting supplies as early as possible without distinguishing between good and bad.
They carried out the grill from the truck, took out half a fan of fresh venison and some potatoes, cut them into small pieces with sabers, sprinkled with rosemary seasoning, brushed with Jing’s hand-made black pepper sauce, put them on the rack, and took saltpeter to light the grill.
The meat dripped down the iron rack with gravy and sauce, gradually emitting a strange and thick aroma.
Before the meat was cooked, Lanlan Yan and some of his teammates went to scavenge the supermarket for other supplies, leaving the rest of the group with nothing to do, and began to discuss how to deal with the AI and the new humans.
Xiaochi Chi, after gaining a firm foothold, first unplugged all the AI base stations within a 200-mile radius of the town, otherwise, the AI would not see the town as a thorn in its side and send new humans to harass it from time to time.
But Xiaochi Chi set up a post system that was extremely militarized, and with a group of AIs with good intentions towards humans and 061’s guidance, they set up their own AI base station, and the AI-backed new humans were in a position to fight it out, opening up an extra-legal territory in the post-apocalyptic world.
Even so, people do not dare to relax easily.
AI may not be physical, but they have manipulated the entire human race.
This small town is still too small after all. Even if they now have Wenqing Shu as an ally, it is still not enough.
Xiaochi Chi tends to take Qiuyun Ding’s team further afield to find other extra-legal locations.
He knew that there were still many old humans and new humans who wanted peace and quiet in some places, but because of the information blockage, like Robinson in the isolated island, can only be trapped in the same place, apprehensive and restless waiting for a signal from somewhere to send allies.
They want to unite this group of people and gradually expand the territory belonging to human beings.
While Xiaochi Chi was mentally talking to himself and unilaterally communicating his vision to Qiuyun Ding, Xinzhi Gu suddenly said, “I have a way to solve those AIs.”
Xinzhi Gu, who had never commented on the design of the tactics before, suddenly spoke up and everyone, including Xiaochi Chi, turned their attention to him.
Xinzhi Gu said, “AI had almost taken control of the corner of the world before we entered the global winter. However, they have not succeeded in controlling thermal-weapons. By definition, that town of ours could have been leveled with just one micro-missile shot. Team Ding, you know why that is.”
Xiaochi Chi was silent for a moment.
Qiuyun Ding was a soldier, he naturally knows.
State-level and military-level weapons are supplemented by AI, with human master control, and are set up with high-precision firewalls to avoid AI problems that could trigger a cascade of serious chain problems.
After the catastrophe, the AI that evolved intelligence had tried to attack the weapons depot, but was quickly discovered by the people at the emergency alert agency, where they immediately chose to cut all network lines, isolating the possibility of an attack directly from the physical level.
Over the years, there have been new humans who have tried to reconnect the disconnected network, but have never been able to do so.
At this point, Xiaochi Chi has already guessed what Xinzhi Gu wants to say.
He wanted to stop him, but Xinzhi Gu had already continued, ” Bin Sun knows a lot about this, just find a few more related technical talents, find a way to restore the use of heavy weapons, occupy the absolute firepower high point, and bombard-bomb a few New Human settlements with heavy explosive-bombs or guided-bombs, the New Humans will know who they should cooperate with. When the time comes to lend their hands to destroy the base station, it’s only a matter of time.”
There was silence around the room, and Bin Sun, who was named, was dumbfounded.
After savoring the amount of information contained in this statement, Yan Sun drew a cold breath: “…… What kind of a solution is this?”
Xiaochi Chi rejected his proposal outright: “It’s the way to do it. But not the way one should think.”
Xinzhi Gu shrugged as if the offer was just a joke he mentioned in passing, “If you don’t like it, forget it.”
Xinzhi Gu’s speech stirred up some discomfort until Lanlan Yan ran over with something in his hand, “Team Ding, look what I found!”
What Lanlan Yan found was indeed a treasure.
It was an older style Polaroid, and there was a power cord, which should have been an item left behind by the previous supermarket owner in his haste to escape.
Everyone swept away the stiff atmosphere just now and began to gossip, soon leaving behind the conclusion of the counter-attack plan.
While eating, they used the hand-cranked generator they carried to fully charge the Polaroid.
After the meal, Lanlan Yan made sure there was still photo paper in the Polaroid and said, “Let’s all get together and take a picture too.”
We are full of food and drink, and are young people, naturally born playful, gathered together, combing hair combing hair, the whole clothes of the whole clothes.
They did not have a support frame, they put the Polaroid on the table, and everyone chose a half-day angle before squatting down in unison.
Qiuyun Ding is naturally at the very center.
Xinzhi Gu squeezed past the others and crouched down next to him.
Lanlan Yan set a 10-second time delay for the camera and immediately rushed back to the group, greeting them with “Everyone laugh”, so they all smiled, but because they hadn’t taken pictures for so long, and the time delay function made it difficult for them to catch the moment, they all laughed a little too much.
Xiaochi Chi was the only one who still maintained a great camera sense, with his left hand on his boss’s back and his right hand on his right knee, with Qiuyun Ding’s face, showing a big smile.
But he didn’t realize that the man to his right, and the Panther to his left, weren’t looking into the camera.
Xinzhi Gu tilted his head, his gaze resting on Qiuyun Ding’s perfectly curved jawline and the tip of his nose, the corners of his lips lifted uncontrollably.
And the black panther opened its gray-blue eyes and gazed warmly at the face of the youth under that skin.
