Chapter 47: Eerie woods
Luo Xinyu said, "Put him in the bed of the pickup. Lets get out of here first before we find a suitable spot to bury him."
As the leader of the band, what would the others think of her if she dumped Xu Xia here? Her reputation would be tainted if word of what happened got out.
When Liu Bu heard her, he immediately made a decision. "Ren Xiaosu, carry Xu Xia into the bed of the pickup and sit in there with him!"
Ren Xiaosu did not mind this at all. Since he hadnt eaten any of the crackers since a day ago, he rather missed them.
He was even less stressed with sitting with the corpse. He had also not been frightened by the number of corpses left behind by the wolves when they attacked the factory.
People in the stronghold were awed by death, but Ren Xiaosu only had reverence for life. He did not fear death at all.
As the convoy set off again, Ren Xiaosu sat in the back of the pickup truck bed, eating crackers and drinking bottled water while muttering to Xu Xia, "Why did yall have to come out here for no reason? See, youre dead now, arent you?
"Hey, what exactly does the inside of the stronghold look like? Many of us on the outside are on the verge of starving to death, yet yallre still in the mood to listen to music and support celebrities?
"Even the pork gets shipped into the stronghold for yall to enjoy while we cant even get to eat it."
Ren Xiaosu was bored and had nothing to do, but the two buddies in the driver and co-driver seats did not think that way. Along the way, they heard Ren Xiaosus faint voice. The driver felt a tingling sensation on his scalp. He asked his co-driver, "Who is he talking to?"
"I... I dont know. Hes probably just talking to himself...."
"Do you think theres something wrong with his head?"
That evening, the convoy failed to find a suitable place to set up camp and was forced to settle for a small clearing. Everyone was quiet as they were in no mood to chat and brag after all that had happened today.
Early the next morning, Ren Xiaosu got up and stretched. He did not go out to find food last night. After all, he had gorged himself on crackers.
The chocolates had also been placed in the pickup truck bed. However, Liu Bu had shrewdly carried them into his vehicle. As there was no space for the box of chocolate in the vehicle, Liu Bu had to hold onto it for the entire afternoon.
Ren Xiaosu had already planned ahead for the day. He did not have to eat in the morning since he could eat whatever he wanted in the cargo bed after the convoy set off and continued journeying.
Right at this moment, however, he heard a scream. He whipped his head in the direction of the pickup. A soldier shouted, "Where is Xu Xias corpse? Did any of you see his body?"
All of them were stunned. "Isnt it in the pickup?"
"His body has gone missing!"
This time, Ren Xiaosu felt a tingling on his scalp!
What was going on? The corpse had been placed properly in the cargo bed, so how could it just disappear?
The typical adult male weighed between 70 and 90 kilograms. So it would be exhausting for a human to carry off the body without making any noise.
How could no one have heard any noise when there were so many people around? Who had carried Xu Xias corpse away?
