Apparently sitting in your room for most of the time reading chinese web novels and playing Onigiri online and Lost Saga on the Chinese server CAN get pretty boring when you do it for long enough. So I’ll probably spend some time translating stuff over summer vacation.
Chapter 5 probably comes out tomorrow. Maybe.
Feng Yu Chen being a very straightforward person, told Saeko “yep, I am trying to hit on you.”
“Tch…” Saeko curled her lips and then stopped looking at Feng Yu Chen.
“Ah, Saeko, you’re the winner of last year’s nationals right? I’m Rei Miyamoto of the Sojutso club…”
“I’m Takashi Komuro of Year 2 Class B…”
“I’m Kohta Hirano of Year 2 Class B., you can also call me Kohta…” said the fatty in the group.
“I’m the school nurse, Shizuka Marikawa…” said the large-chested woman.
“OK, everyone’s gathered together right? Let’s charge out…” said Feng Yu Chen.
“Why should we charge out? So what if you’re a senpai? Rei would have been a third year student as well if she wasn’t held back. I… I’m a genius. As long as I put my mind to it, I can do everything. I don’t need you telling me what to do!.” At this time, the pink-haired girl started yelling at Feng Yu Chen. (TL: Man… I don’t recall Saya being this much of a b*tch in the manga or anime… Or did I just remember wrongly?)
Feng Yu Chen calmly glanced at the pink-haired girl and said “Oh, is that so?”
Saeko shook her head towards Feng Yu Chen indicating to him that he shouldn’t reply.
“Takagi-chan, are you ok?” Shizuka-sensei concernedly asked the pink-haired girl. (TL:K, I just took a shot in the dark at this… The actual text is 高城同学 which is literally Takagi student but that’s not how English works and English has absolutely no replacements for a suffix like 同学 at least not that I know of. So I just threw on a -chan because it’s Shizuka.)
“That’s enough Saya…” said Takashi as he walked up to her and put his hands on her shoulders.
Saya Takagi gradually calmed down and glanced at her blood-covered self in the mirror and sobbed out “When I get back, I’ll have mom help me wash this off.”
“Let’s rest for now. Shizuka-sensei knows how to drive so we’ll take a car out of this place in a bit.” said Saeko. (TL: Oh yeah, I should mention the author actually just writes Shizuka-sensei’s name without any suffix but she’s still a teacher right? So I just arbitrarily added -sensei cuz well it sounded more right.)
“En. We should find out families first to confirm their safety and then we should all head to a safe place …” said Takashi.
Feng Yu Chen waved his hands and said “I have no relatives in Japan so I’ll just go with you guys since I found my objective.”
“Is it me?” Saeko pointed at herself and asked.
“Yep. You can understand it that way.” Feng Yu Chen said as he nodded his head. He is interested Saeko. It’d be really give someone a sense of accomplishment to conquer a girl like this. Not to mention she can cook and knows how to fight. She makes for a great target.
“Everyone should rest for now. I’ll go grab my car keys and then we can charge our way out of the school…” Shizuka-sensei said.
“Ok…” everyone nodded their head and then quickly headed into the staff lounge.
Feng Yu Chen headed into the staff lounge and made himself a cup of tea before drinking it. He just fought a long battle and has yet to eat or drink anything yet so he’s already hungry. After all, when he was transferred here, he was headed home from school so he has yet to eat dinner before coming here.
“Want some coffee?” Saeko asked as she handed him a bag of instant coffee.
Feng Yu Chen took the bag of coffee and nodded “Sure, it’ll help me sate my hunger. Coffee is high in calories and helps one stay alert…” (TL: I wish coffee helped me stay alert D= I’m one of those guys who drink coffee and then fall asleep like nothing happened)
Saeko nodded her head, sat next to Feng Yu Chen and asked “How come I haven’t seen you before? You’re skills are good and you use a sword. I don’t think the Kendo club had someone like you in it.”
“I’ve just came to Japan recently. Who would’ve known something like this would happen. My skills are because I practiced mixed martial arts before and was the winner for my city’s competition. When it comes to Kendo I’m weaker than you but I should be slightly superior when it comes to unarmed combat.” said Feng Yu Chen.
“En. What do you plan to do next? Return to China?” Saeko asked.
Feng Yu Chen shook his head and asked “Impossible. In a doomsday scenario like this, do you think the public transportation system will still be running normally? Even if it was still operating, it’d be for the government only. I’m guessing the entire Japan is like this already, there’s probably no safe place right now.”
“How can it be? There must be a safe place…” Rei said stubbornly.
“Senpai’s right. There’s probably no safe place left…” said Saya.
Feng Yu Chen curled his lips and said “Oh, you finally acknowledge me as your senpai?”
“Humph…” Saya lightly humphed and then turned her head around. Silently acknowledging what Feng Yu Chen said.
“How can it be? There must be a safe place…” Rei said dejectedly.
Takashi held Rei in his arms and patted her on her back to comfort her.
“Bzzt” (TL: it’s that sound when you turn on an old TV or something)
“Hello fellow citizens, we are now reporting to you about the riot happening right now.”
The TV in the staff lounge started talking about the situation in Tokonosu city. You sure have to hand it to the news station, they managed to turn a zombie apocalypse into a riot.
“Tch, don’t bother looking. It’s useless. The government’s just trying to placate the people. Right now all we can do is depend on ourselves. The government no longer has the ability to protect everyone since the entire Japan has become like this right now. How many people do you think the military will be able to save?” Feng Yu Chen said.
“En, this is a large scale disease with a high infection rate. It’s similar to the Black Death for the 14th century, there’s a large number of fatalities…” said Saya.
“How did they cure it in the end?” Rei asked.
“It killed too many and the plague stopped when it started running out of people to infect.” said Feng Yu Chen.
“It’s summer right now. As long as they’re corpses, they’ll rot and as long as they rot til they’re nothing but bones we’ll be safe…” said Saeko.
Feng Yu Chen curled his lips and asked “How many days will that take? A day? Two days? A month? By that time we’ll have been long been KO’d. That’s why I said we have to do it ourselves. Takashi said he wants to find everyone’s family so I’ll go along with you guys and help rescue them. Then we can find a place, protect it, gather food and then try to gather the survivors…”
“En…” Saeko put down her cup and then said to Shizuka-sensei “Shizkua-sensei, let’s use the bus. If we use the bus, we can all go together…”
“Ok…” Shizuka-sensei replied.
Feng Yu Chen took a look outside the room, saw that the zombies had already gathered together and then said “Ok, now everyone rush out. Since we can be considered a team now, let’s temporarily set up roles. When we meet enemies, Saeko and I will go ahead to disperse the zombies. Takashi and Rei will deal with the nearby zombies and protect Shizuka-sensei and the rest. Hirano will assist us with long ranged attacks. As for Saya, help us analyze the situation. Shizuka-sensei takes care of the wounded and driving. No one has any issues with their roles right?”
“Nope.” everyone nodded their heads.
“That’s fine then, let’s start the battle. Let’s go Saeko, as seniors we need to give a demonstration…” Feng Yu Chen said as he patted Saeko’s shoulder.
Saeko knocked Feng Yu Chen’s hand away and then said “I’ll be using my sword next time. Don’t casually touch me.” (TL: Got shot down o/)
“Haha, **. You’re being hated now aren’t you?” Saya said as she stuck out her tongue.
Feng Yu Chen could only helplessly shake his hand before exhaling and clutched his Xuan Yuan sword as his face turned cold. He opened the door, ran out and then using one cleave of his sword, lopped off the heads of two zombies.
“Let’s get started as well…” Saeko looked at Feng Yu Chen’s back before rushing out. He was more attractive when he was serious.
