Chapter 56 A Sword that Runs Rampant in the Apocalypse (56)

Revised and edited on: Otaku Translation

The leader was extremely sharp and immediately knew that there was a problem with Shi Minzhi.
At the same time, he was also very wary, fearing that he was being monitored.

“Who is he, really?”

A person who could make even Bai Tang wary, the leader felt that he must also be wary of him.

Bai Tang, “Who he is doesn't matter.
After this matter is over, I won't give him the opportunity to cause trouble again.
As for other things, just speak as usual and don't reveal anything.”

The leader nodded, and it was beneficial for him to do so.
It was not a big deal to follow Bai Tang's instructions.

The corners of Bai Tang's lips curved, apparently pleased that the leader understood.
The two then began to talk more about the apocalypse.
As for the secrets, the leader revealed some information appropriately.

Ten years of time, this was their time to save themselves.

Bai Tang talked with them about a lot of things, but still left some room for more discussion in the future.

Not long after Bai Tang left, someone came and gave her a key and told her where Shi Moxuan was being held.

Bai Tang didn't even look at it, and threw the key to Shi Minzhi.

Shi Minzhi's fingers rubbed the key, his eyes drooped, “Little Captain, what are you giving me the key for?”

Bai Tang nonchalantly drew crabapple flowers without raising her head as she spoke, “The key to the cell where Shi Moxuan is being held, he has been interrogated and has the blood of many on his hands.
In a peaceful world, people like him would not have a good fate.
In the apocalypse, it is still the same at this government's base.
Fortunately, I was able to use my connections to obtain the key.
I will not involve myself in your personal grudges.
You can handle it yourself.”

“Little Captain, aren't you afraid that I will kill him?” Shi Minzhi was surprised.

Besides himself, Shi Minzhi had never seen Bai Tang kill anyone else.
On the contrary, she had always been saving people.

Bai Tang laughed, “Revenge for revenge, grudges for grudges, I am not an unreasonable person.
I have no grudges with him, and I will not take action against him.
If you want to kill, then do so, but do not involve the innocent.”

Shi Minzhi was stunned, his eyes moistened, “I thought I was not a good person, and I would never have the chance to take revenge.
You actually gave me this opportunity…”

Bai Tang patted his shoulder, “Be good, be a good person.
Make amends for what needs to be made right.
I will not inquire about how you handle Shi Moxuan.
Go if you must.”

Shi Minzhi smiled gratefully, his fingers trembled slightly, “Little Captain, thank you.
Shi Moxuan, he— He was always so arrogant.
He locked me in a dark and desolate place for five years, with only a small opening, through which I could see the outside world.
Every day I counted the days, wanting to eat his flesh and drink his blood.”

Shi Minzhi looked up at the sky through the window, at the great rift that let in the sunlight.

The sunlight was warm, but it was also blinding, and he didn't need it.

Bai Tang continued to draw her crabapple flowers, and thoughtfully said, “Holding onto the past too tightly will make you lose sight of the future.
Let go of the past and look to the future.”

Shi Minzhi's eyes showed a hint of vulnerability as he whispered, “Little Captain, can you— give me a hug?”

Bai Tang replied, “Of course.”

System 168 observed the scene, pleased that the mission was progressing well.

Shi Minzhi's chin rested on Bai Tang's shoulder and his smile grew stronger, no longer showing any vulnerability.

It was said that heartache was a breakthrough.

Shi Minzhi said, “Since I was a child, no one has ever treated me like this.
My father hated me and my mother saw me as a burden and a constraint.
I don't blame my mother for hitting and scolding me, I know she went crazy— What did she do wrong? What did I do wrong? Should I have to bear all of this? Should I be hated by everyone? They said they pitied me, but then they pushed me into the zombie pile like Shi Moxuan did.
What did I do wrong? I don't understand, I really don't understand.”

Bai Tang, with a neutral expression, comforted him, “The only thing you did wrong was killing indiscriminately.
Everything else, you didn't do anything wrong.
It's their mistake.”
