“I can’t run anymore. . .” Running with nothing but pure will, Lian Ru Ning looked at the approaching figure. The choice between life and death danced in her mind, powering her fight or flight response.
In the end, her desire to survive overpowered her thoughts to give up and die. She grit her teeth and turned her head towards the mountain.
If it was the usual mountain road, Lian Ru Ning may still have a chance, but she barely had any physical strength left. It was clear that she’ll have trouble climbing.
Suddenly, her foot slipped that caused her entire body to dive on the mud. The thick gravel scratched her palms during her fall.
She was originally still a distance away from the zombie, but because of this, the zombie caught up to her. She turned her head and watched as the nauseating face rush towards her. Feeling the fear, she closed her eyes shut and awaited for death.
