The car smoothly drove out of the base, but suddenly stopped after about a kilometer.
Ji Cha was sitting in the back seat reading a book, but now he closed the book and asked the soldier driving in front, his gaze shifting to Liang Jincheng.
Liang Jincheng was leaning back on his chair, but he didn’t look nervous. He held a communication device that the base had given him in one hand and held Ji Cha’s wrist in the other, indicating that he should stay calm.
“What’s going on? Why did you stop the car?” the soldier sitting in the front asked the driver in confusion.
“I don’t know,” the driver replied puzzledly, looking back.
Suddenly, all the soldiers in the car froze, their eyes staring blankly ahead without focus. Although the three soldiers with abilities struggled for a short time, they soon fell into confusion.
Before Ji Cha could ask what was happening, the car door was pulled open from the outside. Ji Cha was so scared that he leaped into Liang Jincheng’s arms, and he reached into his pocket to pull out a sharp knife, tightly gripping it towards the direction of the car door.
The member of the ability user team who was about to come in lowered his head and saw his boss holding someone in his arms, “Oh, hello, sister-in-law.”
They occasionally went to the factory to eat and were familiar with Ji Cha.
Seeing them, Ji Cha wanted to get out of Liang Jincheng’s arms, but Liang Jincheng didn’t let go, making Ji Cha feel embarrassed. He greeted them vaguely, “Hello.”
The car they were in was a modified small truck, with a large space in the back, but it was crowded with ten people. Liang Jincheng used the excuse of making room for the ability team members and whispered in Ji Cha’s ear, “Let’s squeeze and give them a spot.”
Three more members of the ability team came up, making a total of four people including Qin Shuang. Under Qin Shuang’s consciousness manipulation, the soldiers in the car seemed completely unaware of the ability team members coming in and still remained motionless. The team members took advantage of this opportunity to knock them out, tie them up, and throw them into the back of the car.
Although Liang Jincheng spoke so self-righteously, Ji Cha couldn’t help but push him and say, “There’s a place to sit over there…”
Liang Jincheng chuckled, his eyes lowered and his profile was extremely handsome. It’s unclear whether he took Ji Cha’s words to heart or not.
However, the team members, including Qin Shuang, were very understanding of Ji Cha’s embarrassment, and they all tacitly avoided looking at them. As time went on, Ji Cha gradually relaxed and fell asleep in Liang Jincheng’s arms.
For some reason, he slept particularly soundly this time. When he woke up, it was already late at night.
The weather at night was still a bit cold, and Ji Cha realized that they were no longer in the car but sleeping in a tent.
“Hey?” He propped himself up with his hand and sat up halfway. It was windy outside, and it was silent. Qin Shuang heard the movement and opened the tent to poke her head in, smiling and saying to Ji Cha, “You’re awake.”
“Why are we in a tent?” Ji Cha stood up and followed her out of the tent.
Liang Jincheng and the other members of the ability users team were standing at the entrance of the tent, but their car was nowhere to be seen.
Cheng Feng sent those people to take care of Liang Jincheng and Ji Cha outside. His intention was to eliminate them away from the base. Everyone knew the danger outside, so if something happened during their trip, no one would be too suspicious. Even if they were suspicious, what could they do? Without evidence, who could investigate what happened outside?
In this way, not only could they take Ji Cha’s farm as public property, but they could also firmly grasp the ability user team in their hands. From then on, they would have complete control over the base without worrying about anything else.
However, Cheng Feng didn’t expect that the people he sent out were no match for Qin Shuang’s mental control. By nightfall, they were foolishly fed with the image of Liang Jincheng, Ji Cha, and Qin Shuang all being killed. They thought the mission was complete and happily returned to the base to report.
After Liang Jincheng explained this to Ji Cha, he asked in confusion, “So we can’t go back for now…?”
“There is indeed a cattle farm here,” Liang Jincheng said with a smile. “We can take a look and then go back.”
Ji Cha nodded and turned back to look at the tents. There were three of them. He remembered that when he woke up earlier, he was still covered by a blanket, and there were many things around him. It seemed that Liang Jincheng was well prepared, making it look like a complete camping trip.

“I made some food,” Liang Jincheng squatted down and pulled out a pot that was buried in the ground for insulation.
There was rice stewing inside, and there was also some pork with sauce on the side. Qin Shuang even magically took out two bottles of drinks.
“The pork with sauce was prepared by grandmother,” Liang Jincheng mixed the rice and pork together and helped Ji Cha twist open the drinks.
When Ji Cha heard about his grandmother, he felt a bit anxious. “They went back to report the bad news first. My grandmother might really think that we are in trouble. What if she gets worried and angry later…”
“I told grandma before I left that no matter what others say, she shouldn’t believe it as long as she hasn’t seen us in person,” Liang Jincheng said.
Hearing this, Ji Cha felt relieved.
The three tents were set up in a hidden area of the dense forest. Since the apocalypse, some mutated plants had quickly taken over the inadequately greened city, and there were basically dense forests everywhere.
After Ji Cha finished eating, Liang Jincheng took out a handgun and a magazine from his pocket. “You carry this. We will have some action later.”
“Okay,” Ji Cha nodded. Liang Jincheng had taught him how to use a firearm before, although he was not very familiar with it, he could still use it properly.
But the cold metal touching his palm still made him feel a bit uneasy.
Seeing him nervous, Qin Shuang tried to comfort him. “There’s nothing to be afraid of. Ordinary zombies can’t even get close to us. It’s the same with people. Just don’t accidentally shoot us, haha.”
Liang Jincheng held Ji Cha’s hand and taught him how to use the gun again, while giving Qin Shuang a warning glance.
Qin Shuang shrugged and went to the side.
They had already left the cowshed behind when they got off the car, and after leaving the camp, they walked for about 20 minutes before seeing a row of buildings in front of them.
The surroundings of the buildings were very desolate, and the vines and plants on the outside immediately twisted and turned when they saw people coming.
However, when Liang Jincheng approached, those vines immediately sensed the danger and shrank back, pretending to be ordinary plants.
The team was too lazy to provoke these plants and simply climbed over the wall to get in.
“There are people living inside,” Qin Shuang said, closing her eyes to sense for a while and confirming, “There are probably five people living inside.”
At the same time, Ji Cha lowered his head and saw that there were some vegetables planted in the courtyard, which was obviously a sign of someone who lived a serious life.
As soon as the words fell, a voice came from inside, “Who, who is outside?”
Then, there was a rush of footsteps, and two young men carrying large machetes rushed out of the house, with an aggressive and unfriendly look.
Qin Shuang raised her hand to stop their actions, “We have no ill intentions, relax.”
The two men calmed down instantly with her words.
“Why don’t you take us in and have a look?” Qin Shuang continued to ask.
The two men nodded together and obediently led them into the house, which shocked the people inside.
