The apartment building that Nathan lives in has 4 floors. Each floor has 6 apartments. The first floor features the A-1 to A-6 apartments. Nathan's apartment is C-2 which is located on the 3rd floor.
"You have to answer two questions before I will open the door and let you in," Nathan said.
"Okay," Ashleigh replied.
"What's your apartment's number?"
"Are you injured?"
"Injured? I broke my nail while I was knocking your door," she said while sobbing.
Nathan was speechless for a moment before continuing, "I mean, have you been attacked by a zombie or anything?"
"No, but I'm afraid I will be so I decided to come to Amir's place."
"How do I know you're not lying?"
She started crying louder.
"Boohoo…Why would I lie? Even if you asked me to strip naked and checked my body, I'll do it."
"This…" Nathan was again lost for a moment and said, "Amir is out. I don't know when he will return. Do you still want to come in?"
"Yes, I rather be with someone than be alone in the dark."
He facepalmed himself.
'What the hell? This is too fishy. Who wants to be alone with a stranger during a zombie apocalypse? Unless she's dumb, she's probably acting!'
"Hey, I answered your question. Let me in," she was still crying.
'The more noises she does, the chances of her attracting zombies or those 3-meter tall skinless zombies gets higher!'
Finally, for some miracle, Nathan remembered his skill. However, another issue came to his mind. If he has a skill, wouldn't she also have a skill as well?
'Fuck! I'm so paranoid!' he cursed himself.
Finally, he thought of an idea, though he wasn't sure if it was a good idea…
"Hey, the doorknob is broken from my side so I can't open it. I'll pass you the keys under the door so you can open the door from your side, okay?"
"Okay," she replied.
He activated [Coward's Walk] and slipped the keys under the door. After that, he quickly backed away from a corner, set his smartphone's flashlight facing the door and held the sword in his hand.
The door slowly opened.
He tightened his grip, ready to pounce any moment in case he finds anything wrong.
When she finally came to view, he was surprised to see her.
She was hot! She was probably around 20 years old, 4 years younger compared to him.
She was tall, blonde hair, white skin and had a voluptuous body! She was wearing a tank top, mini-skirt and sandals.
So far he couldn't tell if there are any other bite marks. But with the low-light conditions, he wouldn't dare put his guard down.
Seeing nobody around, she asked, "Where are you?"
"Close the door and lock it," he commanded.
She closed and locked the door.
"Now turn around slowly. I want to make sure you have no bite marks."
She turned around slowly.
'I can't find any bite marks. Why do I feel like I'm directing a porn video right now?' he thought to himself.
"What's next? Do you want me to strip?" she asked.
When she said that, Nathan's jaw almost dropped but he quickly recovered.
"No need. Just take a seat on the sofa."
'Now tell me when did you lose your virginity,' Nathan jokingly thought as he recalled a Casting Couch video.
For some reason, Nathan got the impression that this Ashleigh is what some people refer to as a "bimbo". Putting that aside, he was also thinking about something else -- his phone.
'I wonder how much battery life my smartphone has left. It's not like I can use my smartphone as a flashlight the whole night. I should probably bring out the emergency light from my room.'
"Can you tell me your name?" she suddenly asked, breaking the awkward silence.
"Nathan? I'm Ashleigh by the way."
After she said that, she gave a bright and beautiful smile. She was really beautiful, though her IQ might be a little low. But hey, who knows, she's probably just pretending.
"Where are you? It feels weird talking like this."
Right, he was currently invisible.
Seeing that she seems harmless for now, he deactivated his skill.
