After Nathan deactivated his skill, he went to where he placed his smartphone and picked it up.
"Wait here. Don't try anything funny," he commanded.
He went to his room to get the emergency light.
With the emergency light now in front of him, he started to contemplate.
'Should I bring this emergency light in the living room? There's a reason why I placed it here and shut my windows tight because I didn't want to attract zombies or anyone.
Should I bring her to my room instead?
No. What if she really has bad intentions? With the limited space in my room, I might get fucked up. What? I'm a man and she's a woman so it's okay because I can overpower her easily? I won't take that chance.'
He had a point. If this was before the apocalypse, he wouldn't fear her because he was 6ft tall and works out so he was confident in his physical prowess, especially against a woman.
However, since the apocalypse, knowing that he was given a skill by the system, why not other people as well? He doesn't believe he's the only chosen one at this apartment building. What's worse, their skill could even be more deadly compared to his.
'Damn. I wish I had a skill that could read the status of other people.'
After thinking less than a minute, he finally decided to bring the emergency light in the living room. If that woman really has bad intentions, with the available space in the living room and his skill, his chances of escaping are higher.
In the living room.
Ashleigh was sitting on the sofa and playing with her phone while patiently waiting for Nathan. She was also wishing that Amir will come home as well.
Nathan finally came back.
There was a coffee table in the middle. He placed the emergency light there.
With the light illuminating the surrounding, they finally get to see each other's features.
Ashleigh was indeed beautiful, probably at least an 8. She had the face of a runway model and had a voluptuous body. Combined with her outfit, Nathan couldn't help but have an erection.
'My cousin really has game.'
However, after remembering that this was his cousin's woman, the erection he had immediately disappeared.
In terms of looks, Nathan, on the other hand, had a very average face with shoulder-length black hair and a goatee. Yes, he has a man bun. Compared to his cousin, who was at least a 7, he was at best a 4.
"How are you related to Amir?" she asked.
"I'm his cousin. You?" Nathan answered.
"Oh, I see. Yeah, there's a bit of a resemblance between you two. I'm his girlfriend," she said with a bright smile as if she was very proud of it.
'Girlfriend? Well, Amir is quite a catch, but he has too many women.' Nathan thought and felt bad for the bimbo.
"I see," Nathan replied.
"Do you know when is Amir coming home?" she asked.
"I don't know. Probably in the morning."
"Did you hear the explosion? When is the electricity coming back? I can hear people screaming outside."
"I don't care about that. As long as we stay inside, everything will be fine."
"Really? What if it doesn't?"
He was starting to have a headache so he tried to get rid of her.
"Don't you want to rest? You can use Amir's room."
"But… I'm afraid. Can we just stay together until Amir comes back?" she begged and was about to cry.
'Fuck you! I'm already being kind by letting a stranger like you in. You still have the audacity to demand more things?! I don't owe you anything, lady!' Nathan cursed inside his heart, but he didn't know what to do.
After thinking for a moment, he said, "As you mentioned earlier: What if things don't work out fine? In the morning, if things aren't looking that great, we will have to escape so I need you to be in your best condition."
"Can't we just sleep together in one bed? I'm really afraid. Plus, wouldn't that be safer?" she started sobbing.
At that moment, Nathan had a strong urge to strangle the bitch, but he quickly suppressed it.
'My god, where are the batshit crazy feminists when you need them?!'
"Listen. Just be a good girl and do what I tell you, okay?" he tried his best to give his warmest smile.
He didn't let her continue and said, "Come on, I'll lead you to Amir's room."
He grabbed her arm and brought her to Amir's room.
