The Villain Has a Crush on Me Chapter 3

The Warehouse

The slender body of a young girl bore the weight of an adult man.

Mo Chu didn’t possess the strength and physique she had honed for six years in her previous life. Instinctively, she stumbled, but she held onto Li Chen tightly.

Then, the soft hand that had been hanging weakly in front of her lifted and firmly grasped her hand.

Mo Chu turned around in surprise, “You’re awake.”

Under the splatters of blood on his face, Li Chen’s complexion appeared even paler, but when he opened his eyes, it was as if the sense of weakness didn’t exist. He was still the powerful Li Chen.

He whispered, “Put me down.”

Mo Chu didn’t hesitate and gently lowered him to the ground, then she tightly supported his arm.

Li Chen was heavily injured, but he surprisingly stood steady.

On the side, Chu Ming’s expression turned sour.

However, Li Chen didn’t spare him a glance and said in a low voice, “Let’s go.”

Though Mo Chu knew that Li Chen wouldn’t die so easily, she still breathed a sigh of relief when she saw him awake. A huge burden was lifted off her heart.

She supported him closely and nodded firmly.

Amidst the mountains of corpses and rivers of blood on the city streets, the figures of the man and the woman walked away, one calm and composed, the other determined.

Chu Ming watched from behind and felt an intense sense of discomfort.

The woman he desired had chosen to follow a useless man.

At that moment, he seemed to return to the past, from childhood to adulthood. Everything he desired and wanted was always taken by Li Chen. Everyone he tried to get close to was surrounding Li Chen. If Li Chen wanted to be the first, he could only be the second.

Always like this.

But the apocalypse was great. He awakened an ability, making him a powerful individual in this world dominated by monsters. Even someone as strong as Li Chen, without an awakened ability, was just a useless person.

He finally felt a sense of stepping on him.

But what gave this useless man, who didn’t even have an awakened ability, the audacity to still look at him with the same eyes as before, as if he was still that incapable waste who would always rely on him?

Even now, he was about to die, betrayed by his trusted brother, yet Li Chen could still treat him as if he didn’t matter, as if he had never taken notice of him.

As if he was still that incapable person from before.

No! He had awakened his ability; he was a strong one!

Chu Ming’s facial muscles twitched violently. He watched Li Chen’s departing figure and coldly said, “Li Chen, I’ll be waiting for news of your death!”

Li Chen paused for a moment, turned back, and glanced at him indifferently, saying cryptically, “We’ll meet again.”

As if it was a curse.

Chu Ming sneered, his voice soft and sticky as he looked at Mo Chu, “Ah Chu, I’ll patiently await your return, pleading for my forgiveness.”

Mo Chu wanted to turn around but was gently patted on the head by Li Chen, the man who was equivalent to a “demon” in her previous life, and he calmly said, “Don’t look, it’s painful to the eyes.”

Mo Chu was taken aback, but then she felt a sense of relief and a feeling of both crying and laughing.

She nodded and softly said, “Let’s go.”

The man and the woman supported each other and left everyone’s sight.

When Mo Chu decided to take Li Chen away, she deliberately dragged out the time until their vehicle left the area crowded with zombies.

She wanted to take Li Chen away, but she didn’t want them to die in the hands of zombies the moment they got off the car.

In fact, Mo Chu had provoked Chu Ming enough that he didn’t notice her intentions. But she didn’t dare to bet on whether Chu Ming would change his mind halfway and kill Li Chen. Therefore, she relied on the complex terrain of the city to quickly get out of their sight.

As soon as they were out of their sight, Li Chen immediately collapsed. Only then did Mo Chu realize that Li Chen had been barely holding on all this time.

Mo Chu didn’t dare to treat him here, so she could only support Li Chen to sit down and checked their surroundings.

They were in a narrow alley with tall buildings on both sides. Some of the windows in the buildings were wide open, and infected residents turned zombies could jump down at any moment, making it very unsafe.

While Mo Chu was investigating, a zombie from the second floor of a nearby building tried to stick its head out from the window, attracted by the smell of blood. Luckily, it got stuck on the window railings, and Mo Chu spotted it just in time. She quickly took out a knife from Li Chen’s body and dealt with the zombie.

At this stage, zombies were only strong, and as long as they didn’t gather in large numbers, ordinary people could handle them. The problem was that many people’s first reaction when they saw a zombie was fear and escape, making them easy prey for the zombies.

However, once the zombies advanced to a higher stage, ordinary people wouldn’t stand a chance.

Mo Chu didn’t bother extracting the crystal core from the zombie’s head this time and quickly surveyed the surroundings and helped Li Chen out of the alley.

She spotted a large shopping mall on the opposite street with a one-story warehouse behind it, connected only by a single door. That was the place she planned to go.

On the fifth day of the apocalypse, the once densely populated residential buildings and office buildings occupied by white-collar workers had become playgrounds for zombies.

Entering such high-rise buildings was akin to entering a zombie’s den, and you never knew if there were living people or a horde of zombies behind the doors along the corridors.

In such circumstances, independent and sparsely populated warehouses were the best choice.

Mo Chu walked over, encountering at least five or six zombies along the way, all attracted by Li Chen’s bloody scent. Although her physical condition wasn’t ideal, she had a knife in her hand and six years of experience dealing with zombies, so she managed to pass by them with some fright but no real danger.

Among the six zombies, she extracted one crystal core.

Mo Chu looked at the crystal core in her hand, knowing that it was the key to her quick advancement.

At the beginning of the apocalypse, those first awakened ability users didn’t know about the existence of crystal cores. It wasn’t until half a month later that the ability users gradually learned about their purpose, and by then, crystal cores had become even more precious than food and water.

But as a “useless ability” user, Mo Chu naturally had no access to such things.

And now, with the streets full of zombies and zombie corpses, this was her chance.

Although Healing-type ability users didn’t have effective attack methods, their physical abilities belonged to the realm of ability users. With proper training, they weren’t completely defenseless.

For example, if this were the Mo Chu from before awakening her ability, she would never be able to carry a nearly 80-kilogram unconscious male with a height close to 1.9 meters.

But now, although it was tough for her, she managed to bring Li Chen safely to the warehouse.

The warehouse door was wide open, indicating that it had already been looted. The food and water in the warehouse had been taken, leaving only some puffed snacks and less portable items untouched. Apart from those, there were still unopened clothes and miscellaneous items.

Luckily, there were no zombies in the warehouse.

Mo Chu wasn’t too disappointed. She placed Li Chen on an unopened mattress and quickly checked his condition.

Before the apocalypse, Mo Chu was a medical student, so she could tell that his external injuries were not too serious and hadn’t affected any major arteries. However, his face had already turned a shade of gray, a symptom of being infected with the zombie virus.

Mo Chu felt a heavy burden on her heart.

He wasn’t bitten by just one zombie; he was surrounded by a group of them. The zombie virus was highly contagious, and even a small scratch from a zombie’s claw could lead to infection. Looking at his injuries, if Mo Chu didn’t know from her previous life that he not only survived but also awakened powerful abilities, she would have thought he was beyond saving.

What had he experienced to survive injuries that would be fatal to others?

It couldn’t possibly be a memory worth reminiscing.

She took a deep breath, draped a coat over Li Chen, and quickly closed the warehouse door. She found some unopened tape and sealed all the other windows in the warehouse except for the door, ensuring that not even a hint of the bloody scent could escape.

The initial zombies had no vision; they relied solely on sound and the scent of blood to locate their prey. In such circumstances, Mo Chu had to do her best not to attract any zombies.

After finishing these tasks, Mo Chu searched the entire warehouse but didn’t find any medicine or bandages.

This was also within her expectations.

She sighed lightly, approached Li Chen, and untied his clothes, using her weak ability to treat the wounds on his body.

She couldn’t heal the deep wounds, and the healing of smaller wounds wouldn’t be of much use. In the end, it was like adding a drop of water to the ocean. Unless she removed the zombie virus from Li Chen’s body, everything she did would be in vain.

After treating him for more than ten minutes, Mo Chu had to stop, feeling that her ability was almost depleted.

In such a situation, she absolutely couldn’t allow her ability to deplete.

But she wasn’t sure if her ability had some effect, as when she stopped her treatment, Li Chen unexpectedly woke up.

Mo Chu felt delighted and quickly opened a bottle of water she had found in some corner, bringing it to his lips.

However, Li Chen turned his head to avoid the water bottle.

Mo Chu was taken aback. “Drink”

Li Chen opened his eyes and glanced at her, his voice barely audible. “Don’t waste it on me.”

Mo Chu furrowed her brows. “What do you mean by waste?”

Li Chen didn’t answer; he seemed to be in great pain, his frown never easing, and his breathing was weak. He said, “You… should leave. I’ve already been infected.”

His tone and words were calm as if he was certain that he would be abandoned.

In an instant, Mo Chu thought of her previous life when she left with Chu Ming’s group.

In her previous life. When she heard that Li Chen reappeared and slaughtered the special operations team Chu Ming was in, she calmly waited for Li Chen’s revenge, but it never came.

She again offered the water to his lips and said, “Drink.”

Li Chen gazed at her for a moment and asked, “Why?”

Mo Chu really wanted to say, ‘Because I want to thank you, thank you for saving me so many times, thank you for liking me.’

But she simply repeated, “Drink.”

Li Chen fell silent for a moment and said, “Go find a rope, tie me up. If I’m completely infected, kill me.”

Mo Chu gritted her teeth and fetched a hemp rope used for securing goods in the warehouse, and tied Li Chen up.

Li Chen added, “If I turn into a zombie, kill me.”

Mo Chu insisted, “You will make it through this!”

Li Chen said nothing and fell unconscious again.

That night, Li Chen developed a high fever.

Status: Ongoing Type: Author: Released: 2020 Native Language: Chinese
Mo Chu didn’t know until her death in her last life that the villain who made all human beings shudder actually liked her, and he was the one who snatched her back from the hands of death many times. It’s a pity that she never had the chance to say thank you to him. Opening her eyes again, she returned to the very beginning, when the weak villain was thrown into the pile of zombies in front of her. In her previous life, she was too busy to take care of herself and could do nothing. It was not until later that she knew what he had gone through in order to survive. In this life, she resolutely picked him up from the crowd of zombies. She said, “Let’s go.” ـــــــ When Li Chen was pushed into the group of zombies by his brother, he was full of absurdity and irony. He looked at the people hiding behind the group of zombies mockingly, and closed his eyes in a dull mood. Then he was held by a hand, and the woman said to him in the sea of corpses and blood: “Let’s go.” Since then, he never let go of those hands. ـــــــ Later, Li Chen asked her: Why did you save me in the first place? The girl in front of him smiled gently, and said softly: I want to say thank you to you.
