Chapter 66 – The best man in the world

Translator: THIS BRO from dummytranslations

Editor: Mimishijie 💛


The car drove all the way to a factory in the east lane of the west of G City, a warehouse area specifically used to let people store their shipments.

Zhan Beitian parked the car and woke up Mu Yifan, who was pretending to be asleep, before getting out of the car and walking towards Mao Yu, who was counting their resources.

Once Mu Yifan got out of the car as well, he saw a bunch of movers carrying resources into the storage room and guessed that this was where the male lead stored all his acquisitions.

In order to avoid arousing the male lead’s suspicions, he took the initiative to walk towards the male lead and Mao Yu, smiling, “Hi~”

To him who could only say a few short words now, that ‘hi’ he’d just said was already the best greeting he could muster.

Mao Yu smiled back. “Mu Mu, you also came.”

Mu Yifan nodded, not intending to interrupt their work anymore.

Mao Yu continued speaking, “Boss, these are the last few cars that contain the resources we gathered, afterwards, what do you plan to do?”

Zhan Beitian just said, “We’ll talk about that after you finish unloading the items.”

“Alright, I still need to account for some purchases, if there’s anything you need, you can find me here in the warehouse.”

Zhan Beitian nodded and waited for Mao Yu to leave before taking his phone out. He made the call right in front of Mu Yifan, “Hello Mr. Drake, this is Zhan Beitian.”

Although he was speaking in Y Country’s language, Mu Yifan found that he could actually understand what was being said. He internally thought, perhaps this is because this body knows Y Country’s language as well.

“The situation is like this, I am in urgent need of the order I’ve discussed with you about and was wondering if we could arrange for the transaction to take place earlier.”

Listening to the conversation, Mu Yifan immediately knew that the male lead was talking to the arms dealer. The male lead was most likely worrying about the apocalypse’s sudden acceleration.

In actuality, it wasn’t strange to be worried. Who let those two virus carriers escape ahead of schedule, therefore causing his body to also begin zombification earlier.

Thinking up to here, Mu Yifan’s eyes dimmed a bit.

He’s about to become a zombie, don’t even mention killing the male lead, after this, he also wouldn’t be able to stay beside him. So within two days, he must find an opportunity to leave.

“The earliest it will arrive is two days later?” Zhan Beitian frowned. “That’s fine, then we’ll meet two days later at the same place as last time.”

Mu Yifan’s eyes shone, when the male lead goes to the meeting, wouldn’t he be free to find somewhere to hide then?

Zhan Beitian ended the call and took Mu Yifan to sit on a nearby sofa. After that, he opened his phone to search up the news, finding no more information on the two escapees.

Half an hour later, Mao Yu had finished counting up their purchases. “Boss, everything has been unloaded, do you want me to bring you there to double-check?”

Zhan Beitian put away his phone. “Close all the security cameras in the warehouse.”

Mao Yu was stunned, “Yes, sir.”

He turned to leave for the monitor room to turn off all the security cameras.

When he came back, Zhan Beitian then said, “Mao Yu, stay here with Mu Mu, I’m just going to go in and check before coming back out.”

“No problem.”

Mu Yifan also bobbed his head up and down.

The moment Zhan Beitian left, Mao Yu hastily pulled over a stool to sit beside Mu Yifan, he smiled sneakily. “Mu Mu, can you tell me, you and the boss, exactly how did you two meet?”

Mu Yifan looked at him before difficultly saying, “Th…throat…hurts.”

Mao Yu paused, “Your throat is sore? You can’t speak? Could it be the food we ordered yesterday causing a reaction?”

Someone handed him an excuse, so of course, Mu Yifan accepted it. He nodded at Mao Yu.

“Then you must take some medicine the moment you go back, it’s the only way you will heal quicker.”

Mu Yifan once again nodded his head.

Even though this was the case, Mao Yu was reluctant to give up this chance and continued, “Mu Mu, although you can’t speak right now, you can still type on your phone to answer my questions.”

Mu Yifan saw his expression of extreme curiosity into the male lead’s love life and, after hesitating for a while, finally whipped out his phone.

Mao Yu smiled mysteriously, taking the time that Zhan Beitian still hadn’t come out to get directly to the point. “Mu Mu, does the boss treat you gently?”

Although in his mind Mu Yifan felt that this was a weird question, he still typed, “How is it possible for him to be gentle with me.”

Because his joints were inflexible, his typing speed was very slow, making Mao Yu feel very nervous. “It can’t be, the boss doesn’t treat you gently?”

Mu Yifan nodded.

Mao Yu continued to ask, “It couldn’t be that the boss likes to be rough? How is he rough?”

Mu Yifan thought for a bit before simply typing, “Not asking for permission, directly taking off my clothes.”

Mao Yu gaped, his mind instantly filled with inharmonious images. “The…the boss actually dared to…cough cough, that, Mu Mu, do you like our boss?”

What if Mu Mu didn’t like his boss, but, because his boss liked Mu Mu too much, he had to resort to such means.

Did he like Zhan Beitian? Mu Yifan thought about it, in the real world, Zhan Beitian was his childhood friend. So of course he liked Zhan Beitian as a friend, but right now, he was within the book.

Actually, strictly speaking, the Zhan Beitian in the book wasn’t all that bad. Other than being a little mean in the beginning, he’s been pretty good to him, even going as far as to take care of him.

Seeing that he wasn’t making a sound, Mao Yu immediately panicked, worried that his boss had fallen into a one-sided love. Just as he was about to ask again, Mu Yifan replied, “I like.”

Seeing these two words, he suddenly heaved a sigh of relief and smiled, “Although our boss likes to frown and doesn’t know how to make someone happy, he is actually a pretty reliable man.”

Mu Yifan agreed with this point so nodded his head happily.

Whether Zhan Beitian was good or not, he was more clear on this matter than anyone else.

“It’s good that you also think this, haha!” Mao Yu happily hung an arm across Mu Yifan’s shoulders. “Mu Mu, let me tell you, you’ve found the best man in the world.”

“Huh?” Mu Yifan did a double-take, this phrase sounds a bit weird.

“What are you guys doing?” Zhan Beitian returned from the warehouse only to see Mao Yu’s hand now on Mu Yifan’s shoulders. His gaze darkened, an unhappy feeling inexplicably rising in his heart.

Mao Yu noticed his boss’s gaze and swiftly retracted his hand. Feeling a bit awkward, he smiled, “Boss, Mu Mu and I were just talking about how he likes you. Mu Mu, am I right?”

Although Mu Yifan didn’t know why Mao Yu revealed the topic of their conversation, nevertheless, he still nodded his head.

Zhan Beitian’s previously calm eyes flashed with shock, he silently looked to Mu Yifan.

Mao Yu saw that his boss’s expression smoothed out a lot and smilingly asked, “Boss, after looking through the warehouse, did you find anything that you still need?”

Zhan Beitian looked at him and ordered, “Notify Xiang Guo and the others, there is a mission tomorrow.”

When Mao Yu heard there was a mission, he instantly schooled his expression and seriously replied, “Yes, sir.”

“Also, I already have plans for the resources in the warehouse, you don’t need to question anything.” Zhan Beitian finished speaking and pulled Mu Yifan along with him to leave.

Mao Yu rubbed his forehead. Somehow the boss’s last sentence seemed to hold a deeper meaning.

Only after the car had driven a distance away, did he turn back towards the warehouse. He opened the door only to see that all the resources had disappeared, even the metal railings and shelves were nowhere to be seen.

The entire warehouse was empty, in fact, it may have even been cleaner than when they’d just got it. Even if thieves had stolen all of it, they couldn’t have moved it all away right under his eyes right? In a short few minutes, they’d looted the entire warehouse.

Mao Yu couldn’t believe his eyes, “The fuck, where did all the resources go?”


Translators notes:


Dummy: Hey yall, some of you might have already seen this coming, but we’re sad to announce that we will be dropping this novel here. Many things have happened since we decided to pick up this novel but, a big thank you to readers who have been with us through it all. We really enjoyed translating it as much as you guys enjoyed reading it. Do continue supporting the translators of NOZW in their next project and feel free to reach out to them in the chatbox or through the comment section. And now, on to them…


THISBRO and death: And that’s it for Number One Zombie Wife! Thank you for sticking to us for the duration of this journey and for enjoying/loving this wonderful novel. Unfortunately, this will be where we stop as the author, 金元宝, has specifically requested we not translate after her free chapters. Let us mourn together….

But not to fear, for we are here with another pit novel for y’all to jump into, “Fake Demon Lord” has captured THISBRO’s soul and has conned the [not so] innocent deathbutlowkey into its vicious claws, so you can look forward to seeing that translated next ^^

  1. Hi, Dummy Novels. I know that it’s been 9 months since you dropped “Number One Zombie Wife” because of the other translations group, Nastriumden. But I’m begging you, please please please PLEASE pick it up again. They’ve already translated the entire novel but the translations were absolutely awful and they put in no effort at all. It was like I was reading a MTL. I know translating 310 chapters more is a lot but it’s lockdown right now, I really wanna read this gem of a novel with actual good translations from a group that I know puts a lot of blood, sweat and tears in their work. I’m willing to wait a long period of time between each update but just please pick this up again. Lord knows how much I and the other readers gritted our teeth and read those horrid translations just for our love of the book. BTW I read only up till chapter 85 and couldn’t go on because well…you know.

    I’m sure all the old readers would re-read the book just for your translations so please don’t give up and consider this. And plus the new readers will be able to read this amazing book with equally amazing translations and actually understand what’s written (yes I’m shading that group that I will not name again).

    Again, I’m BEGGING you from the bottom of my heart, PLEASE pick this up again and update and make these dark, boring quarantine days better. I will literally cry and thank the lord above if you reply to me and pick this up again, I am not even kidding. That’s just how much I love your translations and this book.

    • Hello, glad that you enjoyed it. As you might know by now, we have our reasons for not picking up such an interesting novel. Unfortunately, we have made a promise with the previous translator/author and intend to uphold it. That being said, we welcome translators who are interested in picking up this series to negotiate with the author to see if they can come to an agreement. And if said translator is interested in joining our team, we will be happy to pick up this series.

      Hope this quarantine season treats you well, and we welcome you to read our other series ^_^ Take care~

  2. Honestly..
    A few days ago I got caught by your website because of re-reading “The people who are supposed to kill me fell for me instead” and after catching up again, I continued with “The target always thinks that I like him”. Out of pure curiosity, I finally looked for this novel.. Aside from your perfect translation since chapter 34, there have been at least 3 other translation sites been involved.. including Nastrium, who started with chapter 1… But I honestly can’t understand why they are allowed to translate this novel and their translation is even being uploaded on other sites..
    But you, who have done such a great job aren’t allowed to continue?! That’s a really bad joke.
    If I understood this correctly, you took over the translation because you liked this novel. But had to stop translating because you weren’t allowed to continue. Fine. But I really don’t understand the person who decided, you can’t continue translating any longer. The quality of the unedited MTL of Nastrium is simply.. It’s just so dissappointing. Especially since some braindead guys actually praise it. What’s there to praise? Just copy and paste the raw into google translate and be done with it.. In my opinion, something like that shouldn’t be called a translation.
    Don’t get me wrong, I’m just extremely vexed and dissappointed, because a perfect translation has been dropped in favor for an unedited MTL, which is even uploaded in the same horrible quality on other sites…
    Ah.. I’m sorry for whining in your comment section.
    Although I’m thinking just like Alishah, I won’t ask. Just let me thank you for your hard work. You’ve done great. I’m glad to have been able to read these 66 chapters of which you translated half of it. But just as you dropped the translation, so will I regretfully drop reading this gem, since the only translation available is an unedited MTL-gibberish and I don’t want to see this gem being sullied like so. Instead I will switch over to your translation of “I have a sickness” 🙂
    Once again, thank you for your hard work.

    • thank you^_^ we’re glad you enjoyed it and hope you continue to enjoy our other works~
      don’t worry, you’re not whining, we’re glad to receive such comments which show that our translators’ hard work are being appreciated <3

      • Heh. It’s my aboslute pleasure! Of course I (we readers) appreciate your hard work. I can barely imagine just how much blood and sweat you’re investing in each of your translations. Such hard work has to be praised. And although I rarely write comments, at this point I simply had to, because I could sense the disappointment from your side.
        Yes, I’m happily reading other stories on your side, or rather I’m waiting for a few of them to gain some more chapters before starting, since I’m a little impatient to always have to wait for the next new chapter. Because of that I’m always stockpiling and read everything in one go 😀

  4. Well, I’m late to the party too, but thank you so much for translating this up to here, and with such good quality too!
    It’s a pity that you have to drop this, but i suppose sometimes it cant be helped.
    I hope there will be other translators who are able to translate this in the future (or I’ll just brave the edited-mtl ver lol)

    Thanks again and good luck to your other projects! I’ll definitely check them out!

  6. I rarely venture into the comment section but here i feel like i need to join Alishas plea. Even if you can’t do anything about it. I’m one of ther ppl that ever so often come back to a book they like and this one is one of my absolute favorites. It has everything … only lacks a decent translation. I don’t know who exactly forbid you to translate this, if it really was the author i feel like they ate a huge loss and i weep for the book we could have had if you were in charge. I’ve read others of your translations and never felt them lacking. You do a great job.
    I only hope that someday in the future you feel bored with some extra time on your hand and decide to contact that person again to ask if they changed their stand. You could tell them that a lot of ppl are whining and camping here in hope of a good translation…. damn… how about winning them over with a kofi link? One for translator and one for author ? I will doubble kofi! See how desperate i am. 😭
