Apocalyptic Rebirth: Earth’s Vast Changes - Chapter 20
With the end of the world approaching, having only food and strong shelter was obviously not enough. They also needed weapons, medicines, clothings, generators, gasoline, and so on.
The top of the outer iron railing should be connected to the internal power grid to prevent something from crossing over it. Not only that, but there should also be a lot of monitoring equipment being set up in the yard to provide omni-directional viewpoints for defensive and surveillance purposes.
Furthermore, in the case he couldn’t hold onto this place, then he would need to prepare a strong and durable car for escape purposes. What was more, he would need to try to find those teammates from the apocalypse since it would be impossible to survive alone in the later years of the apocalypse.
All these things were within Qin Luo’s plan, but he was not going to complete it at the moment. Because he only planned to accomplish all these when the apocalypse broke out.
After all, some things just couldn’t be achieved during peaceful times. For example, weapons. Not only did they need a large amount of weapons, but they would also need a lot of money to get it, and THAT was if they managed to find a supplier.
Furthermore, even if they DID manage to find a supplier, it was still possible that they would be targeted by the police or directly slaughtered. The probability of these things happening was there, so he didn’t want to take the risk.
Therefore, for now, he would only buy things that people paid little attention to. He would also find the accurate location of the shops or manufacturers of the special goods; one that would garnered a lot of attention in this peaceful time if he was to buy it now. Then, once they entered the apocalypse era, they would be able to pick up those attention-grabbing goods for a bargain. So, Qin Luo didn’t plan to take the risk and buy them at the moment.
Besides, he didn’t have that much money to buy so many things.
Not to mention that this month, Qin Luo was busy collecting all kinds of supplies needed for decent livelihood as well as strengthening the villa’s defenses. At night, he was also busy helping Ink remove the silver ions from his legs, causing him to have little time to accompany Qin Ke.
Meanwhile, Aunt Liu was busy taking care of the whole family as well as their meals, so she was unable to take the little guy out to play. As such, Qin Ke was only able to stay in the villa all day long. Once in a while, he would quarrel with the two elders or get bullied by the old man, who was also his great-grandfather at the same time. Therefore, after more than half a month, Qin Ke’s whole person has quietened by quite a lot.
Although that was much better than being taken into that research institute and tortured all day long, it was still not the childhood Qin Luo wanted to give him.
He wanted that, but after the outbreak of the apocalypse occurred, the whole family was bound to hide in the villa all day long. These three-storied buildings might end up becoming the majority of Qin Ke’s childhood memories.
Whenever he thought of this point, imagining the way the little guy could only lay on the window as he looked on at the changing world through the glass, while having no chance to feel the joy of running and laughing freely under the sun again, Qin Luo couldn’t help feeling sorrowful for a while.
Even though Qin Ke was still a child, he soon had to face all kinds of horrible creatures huddled in a narrow carriage to follow the adults to a hopefully safer location. Not only that, he would also have to receive all kinds of harsh training and struggle to survive in the apocalypse that was arriving.
This fact truly hurt Qin Luo’s heart, since, although he would try his best to protect his family and give them better living conditions, he was still unable to allow Qin Ke to have a normal and happy childhood.
Still, the apocalypse hadn’t occurred just yet. The streets, amusement parks, and the mountains were all still safe. As such, Qin Luo wanted to bring his family out to play. He wanted them to enjoy the peaceful time before the end came as everything would cease to exist. Qin Luo hoped with this, his family would have more memories of the original earth in their mind to support them for years to come in the coming apocalyptic world filled with crisis.
For that reason, he decided that he first had to take Qin Ke and Ink to the amusement park for the day. He brought Qin Ke along because this was something that Qin Ke had been looking forward to for a long time ever since Qin Luo took him along.
Meanwhile, as for Ink, it was because he had been locked up in the institute ever since he was a child and had spent his whole childhood experiencing cruel and oftentimes painful experiments. Therefore, Qin Luo brought him along, wanting him to experience a normal childhood for at least one time.
Still, he also wanted to surprise them. As such, he decided to not disclose their destination to them in the beginning, only telling them that he wanted to take them out for a walk so they would not get bored staying inside the villa all days long.
Hence, after they were done with breakfast, Qin Luo drove Ink and Qin Ke around the busy streets twice, so they would fully see how comfortable people’s lives were before the apocalypse broke out.
Not knowing anything about Qin Luo’s thoughts, the little guy only looked excited as he chattered with Ink about what he knew. And like any other kids, he didn’t stay on one topic, always jumping around to the next thing that caught his attention.
For example, one second he was saying that there was something he liked to eat from a certain place; the next second, his attention was already attracted by the chaotic things happening on the streets; then, next thing, he already turned his head around to ask Qin Luo questions.
