When Shen Cheng clicked “Base,” she was surprised to see that the happiness level had dropped from 80 to 75. She took a look at the situation of the base: there were currently 20 girls who had been rescued and Xi Bei, who had not yet fully recovered, along with the only male comrade, Xiao Chu. So far, there were still ten empty rooms.
While Li Weilan and Xi Nan were not at the base, the girls had set up some small tents above Noah base and started selectively admitting some outsiders who were fleeing. However, with Li Weilan and Xi Nan absent, Yan Hongyu, who had suffered from hardship and pitfalls, became more cautious in her actions and did not dare to easily bring people into the base.
As the only man in the base who had a bit of a dark history, Xiao Chu had been hiding in the corner, fearing that his existence would be too noticeable. The constantly declining levels of happiness and gloom had spread from him.
Shen Cheng observed the situation of the people in the base and clicked on each of their avatars. Unlike Li Weilan’s delicate emotional scenes, the system expressed the side characters’ emotions bluntly in words.
When she clicked on Xiao Chu’s page, he kept repeating the same sentence, “I hope there can be a few more men so they won’t pay attention to me.”
Yan Hongyu’s mood was completely different. She was thinking, “When will Brother Li and Xi Nan come back? I can’t deal with these people.”
Some of the other girls wanted to “only live with other girls and not see men,” while others thought, “The base is still too quiet and empty. I hope there will be more people.”
In short, Shen Cheng discovered that with Li Weilan and Xi Nan not at home, no one was able to take care of the base well, and everyone’s happiness level was not high. She hesitated for a moment, then moved the screen to the tent area just set up above the base and observed for a while. Shen Cheng found it easy to distinguish who could enter the base among the people in the tent area because their heads were labeled with “hostile,” “friendly,” “neutral,” and so on!
Whether they were enemies or friends was obvious at a glance!
With the blood bar, who needs to still guess?
Shen Cheng took a look at the requirements for expanding the dormitory:
[Standard dormitory 5, requirements: Basic water supply for more than 200 people within the base, food reserve of more than 200 servings]
Shen Cheng then looked at the storage room. When Li Weilan and the others wiped out the gang of thugs before, they obtained a supply of about 1,000 food reserves. Therefore, the current food reserves in the base are sufficient.
However, the basic water supply is not enough.
Before leaving with Li Weilan, Xi Nan had already prepared a stock of drinking water for the base. However, this supply was not considered the daily water supply, which means that there must be a resident water system ability user in the base to ensure its operation.
Shen Cheng’s gaze turned to the tent area above.
She accurately found a little figure in the crowd with a light blue water droplet icon on his head. After clicking on his icon and discovering that he was a neutral NPC, she switched to the control panel and entered his name: Wei Jinzhen.
At this moment, Yan Hongyu heard the sound of a horn in the base:
“Yan Hongyu, please go to the tent area above to receive ‘Wei Jinzhen’ for check-in. Confirm that the name is ‘Wei Jinzhen’, male, 27 years old, water type first-order ability user. The person has been granted the qualification to stay in the base and will work in the ‘water room’. Please guide the other party to become familiar with the base and complete the introduction task.”
“???” Yan Hongyu was confused.
Brother Li was not here, who just gave her the command?
She suddenly remembered the mask that suddenly appeared on the table during their discussion that day, as well as the powerful and gentle person based on Brother Li’s original words.
So he really wasn’t lying!
Brother Li is far away in Noah, so this operation must not have been done by him. Then it can only be the person Brother Li talked about!
This person not only exists, but also has control over the base!
Yan Hongyu keenly noticed this point, and she now had a bit more certainty in Xi Nan’s earlier speculation that this person was a woman: there can only be one boss, and both Brother Li and she have control, so this person is most likely a woman!
Her thoughts were racing, but she only hesitated for a moment before she headed out to the tent area to receive the person.
Other girls around her who had heard the system prompt inevitably began to discuss it in whispers.
“Sister Yan, do you think we can trust this person?”
“The base is finally getting new people, Sister Yan, what kind of person do you think it will be? Will it be a bad person…?”
There were also some who remained silent throughout.
Yan Hongyu looked at these girls, feeling anxious and worried, and said, “How do you feel about Noah these days?”
“Very good!” The answer this time was unanimous.
“That’s good.” Yan Hongyu smiled. “You all know how women without abilities survive in some large bases, but no one treats you like that in Noah. You should have confidence in the base and its leaders. As girls, we should not think about how to exclude newcomers, but rather about what we can do for the base to maintain our current standard of living.”
After she finished speaking, the girls all had different expressions, but they were all lost in thought. The gate of the base opened slowly before them, and Yan Hongyu walked up and soon reached the tent area.
From about a hundred people, Yan Hongyu only took one person, and it was not someone particularly outstanding among them. When she announced the name, the others were stunned: this woman didn’t come up here before, and Wei Jinzhen had not shown his face in front of the base’s people much, how could they know him? How did they choose him alone?
Did this Noah base have a special way of judging?
Even Wei Jinzhen himself was a bit surprised.
He did not consider himself the most outstanding in terms of abilities, nor the most enthusiastic about entering Noah base among all the people. How did they choose only him?
Wei Jinzhen almost doubted if there was something fishy about this Noah base, until he walked into the base’s elevator.
Is this so high-tech?
After the scanning sound of “didi,” Wei Jinzhen heard the interior of the huge building slowly opening in front of him: spacious, quiet, huge but with few people.
After the initial shock, Wei Jinzhen heard the voice of the fire-type ability user who led him in: “Your workplace is in the water room. You only need to ensure the water consumption of the personnel in the base every day.”
“Can I ask…” Wei Jinzhen remembered the heavy pressure he felt on this huge prototype of the base just now. He had a feeling that once someone wanted to go to war with this base, this steel fortress would quickly demonstrate its crushing power and turn the opponent into minced meat.
This was high-tech that he had never seen even in the world before the apocalypse.
This was what people after the apocalypse yearned for: peace and a paradise.
It was also a guarantee for survival.
Looking at the fire-type ability user in front of him nodding, Wei Jinzhen finally asked cautiously, “May I ask why you chose me?”
The woman smiled.
She bent her lips, looked up and down at the ordinary-looking water-type ability user in front of her, but couldn’t see anything special. However, he looked like an honest person, “Be grateful that the boss chose you.”
In front of her phone, Shen Cheng was shocked to see Wei Jinzhen’s head turn from neutral yellow to friendly green as soon as he entered the base.
Huh? Are people so easy to deceive?
Or is this the game’s mechanism, as long as you become a part of the base, you automatically change from neutral to friendly?
Shen Cheng thought for a moment and shook her head: let’s try next time. However, this time it was a prerequisite for the mission, and she still had to be cautious next time. Otherwise, even if they were just small characters in the game, she would feel uncomfortable if something happened to the girls in the base.
She looked at the tent area full of red color marked avatars, and still felt a little conflicted in her heart. There were only forty or fifty people in this tent area, and more than half of them were enemies. She couldn’t even find a few usable ones among the people, let alone the plant-type ability users she had hoped to recruit. What was going on here?
In theory, after experiencing all kinds of hardships and finally finding a place to stay, even if these people didn’t have any expectations or yearning for Noah base, it was normal for people like Wei Jinzhen to have a cold attitude towards it, right?
How come half of the people is red?

However, she didn’t need to think too much about these things for now. She happily saw the message “Dormitory 5 requirements have been fulfilled” and immediately clicked the “5” button. She watched as the dormitories in Noah Base increased to 15 and the capacity increased to 300. Satisfied, she nodded.
Another daily task had become almost a routine task to gain points. Shen Cheng clicked on the avatar of her little cub and saw that his mood for the day was “looking forward.”
Li Weilan sat by the window, watching the scene of the street fight with blood and broken heads, and a smile appeared on the corner of his mouth. Shen Cheng could clearly see that his mood was two words: “looking forward?”
“What are you looking forward to?” Shen Cheng asked. “Looking forward to seeing them beat each other to death? Looking forward to seeing blood and limbs flying everywhere? Why has my little cub turned into a violent cub? The game I’m playing is not a game of tyranny!”
She gently poked Li Weilan’s cheek with her finger and greeted him, “Hey, little cub, I’m here.” Her greeting poked a smile on his cheek, making him look both cute and sweet.
Mother’s heart is melting.
“You’re here,” he said softly.
“Oh, I see,” Shen Cheng thought to herself. “What he’s looking forward to isn’t what I thought, but our meeting.”
If she had a mood, her mood index would probably be “happy,” and she couldn’t help but smile, forming a dimple on her cheek.
Li Weilan’s mood was indeed very good. Outside his window was a commercial street, and the commotion caused by the collection of grain was already very significant. But what he wanted to say now wasn’t about his purpose in doing these things.
He just asked the person who was hiding somewhere, “How come the rice in my space is ripe in six hours? Aren’t you tired?”
“… “Shen Cheng didn’t dare to look at her dark circles under her eyes.
The dark circles under her eyes told you, little cub, mother is very tired.
That person was guilty.
Li Weilan had a hunch about this. She was tired, and if a normal person couldn’t sleep well at night, especially with the hard work in the field, they would be tired and exhausted.
He smiled and gave his solution directly, “Let me collect it, okay?”
He paused and his eyes shimmered like the sea. “I know you’re the one who opened the field and provided the seeds. Maybe these harvests are very important to you. I won’t keep any of the rice collected. Don’t worry, it’s all yours.”
“???” What was cub talking about?
Shen Cheng was confused.
