She walked aimlessly through the base. Half the people on the base were gone. Everyone was silent. The daily battles between superpowered and ordinary people had stopped. Now, people didn"t even have the desire to talk. The shadow of death didn't just hang over one person.
Unknowingly, Su Shanshan came to an empty space. This place was very familiar, but because the surrounding environment had changed too much, she recognized it only after taking a closer look. This place was where the Gu family's main residence was. However, because the residence above was gone, only the bare foundation was left.
The sound of bottles colliding rang out. Su Shanshan walked on in confusion and saw Ling Jing sitting on the ground. In front of him was a small tombstone with the words "Gu Zhao's Tomb" engraved on it.
There were many wine bottles placed at Ling Jing's feet. He nagged, "Brother, I'm already very kind to you. This wine is a rare item in the apocalyptic world. I only have these few bottles. These few bottles are my treasured items. I've taken them out for you. I'll drink with you!"
He took a big gulp of wine and his eyes turned red. "Brother, this might be the last time I drink with you. It's all because of this trashy apocalypse. Otherwise, we would have led a carefree life. With a powerful boss protecting us, our lives would have been so comfortable.
Unfortunately, the world has changed--" he began, then gulped more wine. He was coughing because he had drunk too much.
When he bent down to cough, he saw Su Shanshan standing not far away. His body stiffened. Then he did what he had to do and kept drinking.
Su Shanshan walked forward and looked at the tombstone on the ground. She sat on the ground like Ling Jing and remained silent.
It was Ling Jing who could not stand this silent atmosphere. He said, "Madam, what are you doing here?"
"Same as you." She snatched the wine from Ling Jing's hand and took a sip. She had never tried such a strong wine before. She couldn't help but cough. Her eyes and nose were red from the heat.
"If you can't drink it, don't drink it." Ling Jing was really a little drunk. Normally, he would not dare to speak to Su Shanshan like this.
Su Shanshan looked at the tombstone and said, "You two must be very close, right? You did the right thing. Gu Zhao probably liked the Gu family. If not for that, he wouldn't have left the Gu family and followed me to City A."
Ling Jing's hand that was holding the wine paused, and he did not speak.
Su Shanshan stood up and said, "I'll leave first. He probably wants to be alone with you."
Ling Jing looked at her back and couldn't help but say, "You don't know anything."
Su Shanshan stopped in her tracks. She turned around and was about to ask when Ling Jing said, "Don't tell Boss about this. Don't ask why. This is the last thing you can do for Gu Zhao."
He added, "Leave."
He sighed as he watched Su Shanshan leave. He wanted to tell her everything just now, but how could he go against his brother's wishes when he did not say anything until his death?
This was the Gu family residence where Su Shanshan had lived.
She had questions about what Ling Jing said but her heart was overwhelmed with sadness. As soon as she walked out of the place, she saw Gu Jincheng opposite her. She stopped in her tracks and was silent.
So he already knew.
Gu Jincheng did not say anything. He took her hand and said, "Let's go."
The two of them walked along the streets together. The people at the base had already cheered up and started to rebuild their homes. Everyone was doing their part for the construction of the base. The two consecutive crises made them realize that they would live and die with the base. Therefore, they began to treat the base as their home in their hearts.
Su Shanshan was surprised that they had changed so much in just a few minutes.
She turned her attention to the man beside her. Was it because of something he had done?
Gu Jincheng smiled at her and said, "It's a secret."
Su Shanshan was a little surprised. Since when did he know how to joke?
Gu Jincheng pulled her into the distance and said, "Shanshan, call me Brother Jincheng again."
Su Shanshan's body stiffened. She asked in a daze, "You've regained your memory?"
Gu Jincheng did not speak, but Su Shanshan was familiar with his gaze.
Tears welled up in her eyes as she threw herself into his arms and asked the question of their first meeting again, "Brother Jincheng, are you willing to marry me?"
Gu Jincheng held her firmly. He would never let go in this lifetime.
After a long time, a sigh sounded. "Okay."
