I heard that I’m super fierce - Chapter 1

“Teacher,” someone repeatedly shouted by her ear, “Teacher, wake up.”
Lin You opened her eyes and saw a bent figure standing on the other side of her bed. The girl was young; she looked like was in fact 15 or 16, and her round face was filled with concern.
“I brought back dinner from the dining hall.”
In the girl’s shaking hands was a packed plastic bag, “Should I put it on the table?”
“Ah, yeah, that’s fine,” Lin You still hadn’t adapted. She sat up, and then weakly slid down. “Sorry to trouble you.”
“ You say that as if you aren’t sick.”
There was the rustling sound of friction.
The round-faced girl’s back was facing her as she stood at the table, and one by one she took the food containers out. She understood a sick person’s appetite so there wasn’t a lot of food; two vegetarian and one non-vegetarian dish with white porridge. Lin You sat towards the chair, and the aroma came towards her. She waited, then hesitantly picked up a few dishes, and when they went into her mouth, she almost bit off the chopsticks.
It was indeed the darkest dining hall under the sun.
As Lin You’s dark mouth bit into an undercooked string bean, she thought that this dining hall must not be afraid to give people food poisoning.
But the girl she lived with was by her side and looked on concerned, she was forced to take a few mouthfuls of bland food, then used the excuse of being sick and pushed the container aside.
“I have no appetite,” Lin You said, “Don’t worry, I’ll eat it again in a bit.”
“Why don’t you lie down on the bed?” The girl answered with concern.
“No problem, I lie down for most of the day. I’ll look through the lesson plan.”
Saying she’ll look at the lesson plan was only a pretense. Lin You flipped the pages back and forth, and glanced at the marking on the status box that said “has a cold.” Besides the loss of smell and taste, in her head, the game made the top-heavy feeling all the more realistic.
It wasn’t a fantasy, from within she surveyed all the public praise that exploded in a straight line; in three short days, she broke through 100,000 active users.
As a type of frightening horror survival game, it is said that the producer had many copyright collaborations. This made the system’s automatically generated duplicated plots rise up by the degree of one class.
The game made every effort to be absolutely realistic. The accuracy of the heart and lung function was a huge challenge. How good playing can be really good playing, how many people who smashed the game pod offline today, how they swore to God they would not touch this game again, until the second day—
—Hey friend, wanna play “Box”?
—Play, play, play, you’re really irritating.
Everyone said that playing garbage games would ruin my youth, however, my body honestly wasn’t his too much. As a veteran horror game hobbyist, Lin You naturally did not want to fall behind; the moment her gaming helmet arrived in express delivery she impatiently tore open the online experience.
In this copy, her assigned plot position was a student-teacher that had just come to this high school. Because there weren’t enough dorms for teachers, she lived with this girl called Fan Jingshu who was in her second year. She didn’t feel good when she got up today, but the school leader was in a good mood and granted her three days sick leave.
If she was in reality, Lin You would have applauded the leader with her hands above her head, but unfortunately the name of the novice copy was “Strange School Chatter”.
Let go of everything else—right, novice copy.
Speaking of this, besides the richness of the plot and the high-level gameplay, the most distinctive feature of “Box” is its career upgrade system.
The player gets certain skills and gains from their career. Rumor has it that each career has been customized with an exclusive upgrade route, and the categories are also diverse. Besides the popular careers listed in the brochure, there were still many bizarre hidden careers, there should be thousands of them.
As for how to choose, the official had already prepared.
Once a player is registered, they will first be placed in a single-player copy with different content and the same difficulty. After reporting the actions of the player, the brain center can automatically analyze his/her most fitting career.
Lin You was still very curious about which one she would match with.
Of course, her gaze swept around the room, she must first clear this novice copy.
In a four-person student dorm, lived only the two of them; the other two beds were empty. If she’s not mistaken, the number on the door of this dorm was “402,” so it should be located on the fourth floor.
After thinking, Lin You decided she would ask around for some more information in addition to what she already had—that Fan Jing was a second year, she must know more than that she was a “new student teacher.”
“Jingshu,” she said, “Can I ask you something?”
The girl turned around when she heard the voice.”
The syllable “-kay” didn’t even leave her mouth, a sound of an electric current flowed forth.
The hanging lamp extinguished with a “pa.”
Lin You: “…”
Fan Jingshu: “…”
It was already dark outside, and with the lamp extinguished it was pitch black. The two people, one standing and one sitting looked at each other with dismay in the darkness. They couldn’t see each other clearly.
Lin You closed the lesson plan book with a “pa.” This reliable school still had power outages at night? Wasn’t this a standard beginning to a ghost story?
Wait a minute, what she was playing seemed like it should be a horror game.
“Trip…” Fan Jingshu said softly, “tripped circuit?”
After all, she was mentally prepared from the start. Lin You considered herself able to adjust quickly.
“Wait.” She heard a clamor outside and stood up nimbly. “Hey, I’ll go to the gate to check it out.”
The exterior corridor was already occupied, and when her eyes adjusted to the dark, Lin You could clearly see girls in twos and threes assembled in front of each dorm door, and with worried looks on their faces whispered into each other’s ears.
“Power outage again!”
“So annoying, how many times has this happened this month?”
“I was a bit scared in the middle of the night, our school isn’t like this…”
“Like this” was haunted?
Lin You, not waiting to eavesdrop on them puzzling over the mystery, saw a white light shine over her.
“Go, go, go!” This dorm mother walked back and forth like a duck and shouted at the students, “What are you doing standing around in the pitch-black darkness, the tripped circuit is being fixed, go, all of you go back to your rooms and stay there!”
Lin You, relying on her dignity, didn’t go back. She waited until the dorm mother walked in front of her, and she called out to stop.
“Teacher Wu, where do you have the extra flashlights?”
The dorm mother squinted at her, and she recognized Lin You. “Aiyo,” she grabbed her lower back.
“Yes, we have them, but they’re a bit small.” She stuffed it in Lin You’s hand, “Little Lin, help me see a bit, this power outage is really bad for running back and forth…”
After complaining some more about the students being difficult to manage, the dorm mother continued down the corridor to shoo away people.
Oh, you’ve received the first gaming item.
Lin You bowed her head to smile, turned over the flashlight, turned it on, and the room was somewhat brighter. In the light, she saw Fan Jingshu’s face was a bit pale.
The roommate let out a breath, embarrassed. “…Luckily we have a flashlight.”
Lin You didn’t pay attention to her, only absentmindedly agreed. She was just thinking about what those students had just said.
Since it’s called “Strange School Chatter,” it must have been haunted. She was indeed curious about what was going on at this school.
When she was in middle school, what was going around among students was that there was a headless ghost of a girl on the third floor, the fourth-floor cleaner mopped the floor with a head, the school was built on a cemetery, the head teacher’s face always appeared on the back window…anyway, no one really saw anything except for the last one.
Of course, regardless of the fact that power outages were common among the students, this was the first time there was a tripped circuit in the game. Lin You could guarantee, according to the usual urination in horror movies, some messy tricks will certainly come out.
Over there, Fan Jingshu was still considering, and she couldn’t help but start wailing, “Will you please talk to me?”
She called Lin You back to her wits with this sound. Although she knew her counterpart was an NPC, Lin You still had some good feelings towards this little girl who brought her food when she was sick.
“Are you afraid of the dark?” She asked, all smiles. She easily helped her pour a glass of water.
The little girl took the glass of water and hurriedly nodded, “A little bit.”
“So, should we tell ghost stories?”
“Huh” said Fan Jingshu. She started coughing and kept coughing while she drank the water. “Teacher, you—“
This was really very thoughtful.
“It was a joke.” Lin You said with a smile, “If you’re afraid, then where’s your phone? Take it out and we’ll brighten this place up.”
“Teacher, did you forget? The school doesn’t let us have phones.”
…She really didn’t know.
Lin You laughed out loud and hurriedly asked her if she remembered where she put it. The memories she inherited in this system weren’t very clear; they didn’t have many details, and she only knew roughly what happened these past few days.
Fan Jingshu on the contrary still had real memories. Under her direction, Lin You felt about for her phone on the bed. She felt and she felt, and suddenly she became aware that besides the sound of the comforter and cloth rubbing together, she heard another type of sound.
She stopped moving, and Fan Jingshu sitting on the other side of the bed also seemed to feel that the atmosphere and didn’t dare come out, and unconsciously covered her mouth.
It was just like somebody was desperately scratching the board.
Fan Jingshu, who had turned pale, made a silent gesture. Lin You picked up the flashlight, and step by step walked towards the sound.
She finally stopped walking next to the bookcase by the door.
From the beginning, Lin You guessed that this four-bed dorm that only housed two people was just not right. This was a horror game, it exaggerated things, who knew if “people” lived in those two empty beds. Unfortunately, there was a tripped circuit now, there really must be things that want to come out.
Lin You waited a long time, and still couldn’t rouse a bit of will to survive.
Anyway, it was an introductory level novice copy, it wasn’t possible it would make her meet her opponent right at the start. Moreover, death was death, at worst GAME OVER, she should at least die to understand.
As she thought like this, she dropped the flashlight in her hands and saw clearly the scene behind the bookshelf.
Lin You gasped unconsciously.
Behind the bookshelf and on the wall were a few cracks, and crammed between these cracks was a face.
The dark circles under the eyes were too heavy, this was an immortal who was repairing for a long time—no, after reacting to the distraction, Lin You slapped herself on the head. She was focusing on the wrong thing!
The girl’s face was quite pale, her lips were turning blue, and her eyes abnormally turned upwards.
However you look at it, this was not a living person. One hand scratched the back of the bookcase, and sawdust came off from the fingernail, and the fingernail came forward little by little.
She wanted to crawl out.
The next second, Lin You became aware that what was on the other side of the goal was more than this.
Only after working hard to get out, that inhuman sharp fingernail grabbed at her front door. Her reflex was to step back and see that sharp fingernail thrillingly pass in front of her eyes, and she bowed her head again to see and looked at those two swollen eyes that stared at her with bitter resentment.
The first scared feeling came and went, and Lin You composed herself.
The two choices in front of her were very simple, she really could not let this thing get out. She swept over her line of vision and slowly, slowly let out a breath. There was even a bit of anticipation.
She had watched horror movies for many years, so she already knew what to do.
“It’s wrong not to return the favor.” She said with pity, “Don’t worry, I’ll start lightly.”
The girl ghost in the crack made an indescribable shiver.
Fan Jingshu was waiting on the side, trembling with fear. “…Teacher?”
“Don’t worry,” Lin You turned around and showed her an extremely good-natured smile, “It’s a no problem at all.”
The ghost girl quivered, and under the control of a strong desire to survive, she tried to crawl out with even more desperation.
Lin You moved her neck, shoulder, adjusted her posture, and with the side of her body knocked heavily against the bookcase.
A number of books came crashing down, and with lots of momentum, the bookcase also hit against the wall and clamped the hand of the ghost girl who was trying to get out.
