e constantly being bitten and kept mutating.
Bai Qingqing followed Cheng Rui for more than ten minutes and started staggering as her endurance declined.
Glancing back at the girl panting with a pale face, Cheng Rui apologized before hauling her on his shoulder.
“Ah!” Bai Qingqing had not seen that coming and she grabbed his back in a hurry.

There were even more infected people inside the auction house but these zombies were easier to get rid of than the soldiers outside.
Cheng Rui used his power to kill them while looking for a place to hide.
But before he could find a spot, two abnormal-looking blue and purple mutant zombies rushed out and used their own abilities to attack the man. 
Bai Qingqing realized those were the two people who had come to kill the mutant woman earlier, but they had been turned into zombies? No, that wasn’t right.
The faces of those who had been bitten by the mutated zombies had instantly rotted; these two people were not zombies but something different.

Cheng Rui had to deal with these attackers and put her down.
Their speed was terrifying and Cheng Rui did not have the upper hand as they fought. 
Bai Qingqing had a gun in her hand to assist him but because the enemy was too fast, none of her shots really caused any damage.
Her palms were sweating and she was distracted by the other zombies that were coming from everywhere.
They couldn’t use their powers all the time and under the frantic attack of the two mutants, Cheng Rui could only take Bai Qingqing to the auction ground to escape.
The mutants chasing them were like controlled puppets and Cheng Rui threw her into a room and shouted: “You hide here, I will lead them away.”
Bai Qingqing nodded.
She closed the door tightly and found a corner to hide.
She was of no help right now, the best course of action was to not drag him back and make trouble.
She could only pray Cheng Rui would be able to deal with the two mutants.

Bai Qingqing tried her best to calm herself down and told herself Cheng Rui would be okay.
She recalled the events from the moment they had entered the auction house to when the auctioneer had been killed and then thought of the encounter with the two mutated zombies.
Those two gifted zombies were like the woman, acting as if they were controlled by something or someone else and she wondered what had caused them to mutate.
If this kind of mutation had not been discovered initially, there must have been an incubation period and it would explain why the woman had not been detected.
Those were much more horrifying than instant mutation.
What if there were more in Wucheng already? If that was the case, the city would no longer be safe and everybody would die.
She didn’t know what had happened to Fu Chen and the others but she hoped they would be able to get out of the auction house alive.

Time passed slowly and Bai Qingqing felt she had been hiding in her corner forever.
There was a sudden bang at the door and before she could get up to check, it slammed open and soldiers with guns rushed in.
Dazzling light shone on her face and Bai Qingqing quickly stood up and raised her hand.
“Don’t shoot!”
The soldier looked at her carefully: “Human?”
Bai Qingqing showed a frightened expression and answered: “I have been hiding here since the beginning.”
The soldier pushed her out until they reached the outside.
Bai Qingqing found out many people had survived and were handcuffed before being packed into cars.
Everybody looked numb and no one spoke.
Whether they would die or live was now in Wucheng’s leaders’ hands and whether they were infected or not, they were now all being taken away as long as they had been in the auction house.

After a while, the cars stopped in a place similar to a prison and the survivors of the auction were all taken in one by one until they all gathered in something looking like a basketball court.
“You will be quarantined here for a few days.
If there are no signs of infection, you will be released.”
“How many days exactly?” Someone couldn’t help but ask.
The soldier’s face was cold and looked like not killing them immediately was the greatest mercy.
As for how those people would be dealt with in the end, it was a matter for the top brass.
Yet the only thing that would happen to them would be their deaths; keeping them alive for the moment was just for show and to prove that Wucheng’s higher-ups did not kill innocent people indiscriminately. 
The soldier didn’t answer; the scene was dead silent, perhaps this prison would become their cemetery.

Bai Qingqing could only hope Fu Chen would not abandon his sister and quickly rescue her.
If he didn’t show up, she could only expose her portable space and trade for her survival.
She was locked up with a few other people and she looked at the white moonlight through the window with a heavy heart. 
Not long later, she saw soldiers pressing a girl past the cell and she ran over to call her out: “Bai Tiantian.”
The girl immediately turned her head and opened her mouth in surprise: “Qingqing.” She grasped the iron bars of the cell, “How come you were also arrested?”
“Where are Shen Mingxuan and Xiao Yang?” Bai Qingqing asked, “You didn’t see them?” 
Bai Tiantian shook her head.
“Hurry up, don’t dawdle.” The soldier urged.
Bai Tiantian didn’t know where she was being taken to but Bai Qingqing had an idea.
She lowered her voice and said: “Tell them to take me along.”
