I heard that I’m super fierce - Chapter 10
Translator: NovelMultiverse | Editor: NovelMultiverse
When the mummy tremblingly poked his head out of the quilt, what he saw was this scene—
Of the two young people, one still had a surprised look on his face. And the girl standing beside him was carrying a stainless steel rod, gently tapping it on the palm of her hand.
“If you’re honest I’ll be lenient,” she said coldly, “If you resist, I’ll be strict.”
Geng Qinghe felt that his playing style was not right.
—The protagonist had become a villain with a good style of playing.
He boldly looked at the shriveled corpse. The flesh on the opponent’s face had fallen out of sight, the cheekbones were high, and only a few strands of sparse hair remained on the top of his head.
Although it’s a little better than skin over bone, it looked terrifying enough.
At this moment, in its deep-set eye sockets, the eyeballs close to the eyelids slowly turned to look in their direction, and the ferocity inside became even more profound—
“I’m recruiting!” Once Eugene Melville quickly estimated the strength of the two sides, and said hoarsely, “I’m recruiting for everything!”
Geng Qinghe: “……………………”
What about ambition?!!
Lin You didn’t think it was any surprise, she just slapped the stainless steel pipe that she removed from the mop to the side. Judging by the virtue of this mummy before his death and the behavior of staying here for so long after his death, he might be at the bottom of the food chain in the hotel.
“Is this diary yours?” She shook the little book.
“Yes, yes,” probably because of the decay of the vocal cords, the folklorist’s voice was indescribably sharp and hoarse, “It’s mine.”
“I’m cooperating with them,” he explained honestly.
“They are responsible for killing and offering sacrifices, and I will improve them.”
“Improve what?” Lin You asked.
“—The ceremony of course. They had everything they wanted,” Melville said. “It just so happened that I didn’t have the opportunity to practice my research. At the time I thought it was a win-win situation.”
“Since they had everything they wanted,” Geng Qinghe’s eyes wandered, “why did the boss suddenly change her attitude?”
Melville made a grumbling noise in his throat.
“Because the ceremony was successful, but the stupid woman found it was different from what she had imagined.”
His eyes were both frightened and rejuvenated, “Then? Then she actually wanted to burn the house and our results, so they killed her!”
Lin You keenly noticed the information in his words, “They?”
When she read the diary, she felt a little weird, and suddenly she realized the source of the sense of violation.
When referring to the death of the boss’s wife and saying “they killed her”, Melville must have not counted himself in, that is to say, there is at least one other person besides him, the boss, and his wife.
“For a while, Langton and the others thought they couldn’t do it by themselves,” Melville said. “They hired another girl to be a maid—she actually did everything with them.”
“But what did you do when you heard this?”
He said: “It’s impossible to get out anyway.”
Speaking of the end, Melville actually laughed heartily, and he almost laughed too loudly. Looking at his crazy and determined attitude, Lin You couldn’t help but glance at Geng Qinghe.
At this moment, a scream came from a distance.
The two of them looked at the location of the sound. Lin You immediately reacted to something. She looked at the bed again, and it was empty as if a certain folklorist had never appeared.
She made a “tut-tut” noise.
“You’re running quite fast.”
“I know, I didn’t see it,” Geng Qinghe was upset, “I should watch him more.”
“It’s okay,” Lin You answered.
“Anyways, I can’t ask more about his attitude anyway, now let’s go and see what’s going on upstairs.”
As for what he said about being impossible to get out, Lin You didn’t care at all. It will not be a dead-end, a solution can always be found.
Going up the stairs to the second floor, they saw that everyone was gathering on the other side of the corridor, surrounding the girl who had been pulling her boyfriend before.
Lin You remembered that her name was Wang Yan.
There were obvious signs of crying in her eyes, and her emotions were calmer. Looking at this situation, it is not difficult to guess who the scream is from.
Lin You noticed one person was missing.
“What’s the matter?” she asked.
“I can’t go up to the fourth floor, the door is locked.” Liang Yong said, “We asked them to search the third floor separately with us, and then—”
“We just entered an empty room…”
Wang Yan stuttered: “Hearing there was movement outside, and then seeing it was a crawling… crawling thing, he pushed me away and ran up.”
Since her boyfriend was not present, the ending is self-evident.
The only good news is that “Box” will force a copy of the player when it determines that the player is dead. If his teammate clears the level, he can get experience rewards that match his progress. Of course, if they are all wiped out, everyone will be empty-handed.
Therefore, everyone, including Wang Yan, knew what the urgent task is.
“Did you see what that thing looked like?” Lin You asked.
“We passed by when we heard the sound,” Chen Jun said. “I saw it while we were running together and I was covering for her. I didn’t see the details, but it seemed to be wearing an apron.”
Since no one mentioned the sound of water, those eight achievements were not done by the boss’s wife. Lin You remembered what Melville had said, “It may be the female maid that was hired by this hotel before.”
The cause of death may be the same as Melville; Mrs. Langton’s revenge. But unlike a certain feeble corpse, this girl became a ghost after death.
Wang Yan: “Female, female maid?”
“Ah, yes,” she simply pulled out the diary and shook it. “We found this, and it says something happened here before.”
Liang Yong took the book, flipped through it quickly, and said with doubt: “But there was never a maid.”
“About this,” Lin You said calmly, “We saw the owner of this diary, and we sat down and chatted with him like friends.”
Qi Lanlan stammered: “Friend…friend…friends?”
Lin You nodded, “Like friends.”
The kind of friendliness of two-on-one with a steel rod.
Everyone looked at her like she was a ghost, and then at Geng Qinghe who had decided to stay silent. With the latter’s positioned obediently on the side, it was easy to see who was the main envoy, so the shocked eyes turned back to Lin You.
In the last paragraph of the diary, it can be seen that Eugene Melville died at the hands of a vengeful evil spirit. Who knows what kind of spirit she is now, she actually…
Should it be said that the young are fearless?
Geng Qinghe saw the meaning of their eyes. He thought about the whole process he had witnessed, and then looked at the person who was still smiling harmlessly. He thought that he was pretending to be a pig eating a tiger!
“I’ll go to the third floor now,” Lin You announced, “Does anyone want to come with me?”
Everyone looked at each other.
Liang Yong and the three of them had seen the maid transformed into a ghost. At this moment, his thoughts were extinguished and the other two thought it was even more impossible.
“I— I’ll go too!” After struggling for a long time, Geng Qinghe answered.
Although he is still anxious, he felt that following along was the right choice.
“It’s better to stay in the hall until morning.”
Liang Yong cajoled her: “Isn’t that safer?”
“I am more tortured by curiosity than worried about safety.” Lin You shrugged, “The fourth floor is locked, indicating that the final answer must be there.”
Besides, there was no guarantee that everything will be fine in the morning. And if you want to escape, when the doors and windows cannot be broken, the fourth floor that leads to the roof is the only option.
Seeing she was persuaded and wouldn’t change her mind, Liang Yong had to give up. He shook his head and sighed.
What a beautiful girl, how can she be obsessed with death.
Sure enough, he was still a novice.
“Is this the empty room Wang Yan said?”
They were terrified all the way up the stairs. When they finally stood in front of the room, Geng Qinghe didn’t see a trace of the female ghost, so he was so relieved.
Lin You: “Yes.”
All the doors were open, and most people would be too eager to close them. There were dried bloodstains on the ground, and after thinking, they knew who it was from.
“This room is the same as that of the innkeeper on the first floor,” she said, looking around. “There is no house number, no electronic lock. This is probably the maid’s room.”
“Remember what the folklorist said about her?”
“Uh, he said…” Geng Qinghe recalled, “She even did the dirty work of murdering with them?”
Lin You snapped her fingers.
“So the couple should have trusted her very much. Since there is no key to the fourth floor on the first floor, it’s most likely hidden here—even if it’s just a backup key.”
Geng Qinghe’s eyes lit up.
“What are you waiting for—”
This sound appeared almost as he spoke.
There was silence in the room.
Dingling, the crisp sound rang twice, one closer than the other, dingling.
There was also Geng Qinghe, who had not stepped into the door of the room, and turned his head stiffly, watching the corner of the corridor where a woman’s face protruded from below.
She smiled unnaturally, and her facial features were distorted by the arc of her smile. Limbs twisted and fell on the ground as if they were broken. As an added bonus, her crawling movements were fast.
She was wearing an apron.
But on the side of the apron, what attracted the most attention was the bunch of keys that keep clanking.
However, without knowing if her teammate would fall behind, Lin You made a decision.
Geng Qinghe was immediately convinced by her and ran away before she finished speaking.
Lin You, who hurriedly caught up with him, thought that this speed must be why the rookie could escape directly out the door.
She took the time to look back, and there was still a delay when she went out, and the maid was about to catch up.
In the next moment, Lin You shoved Geng Qinghe’s back.
She didn’t even care that the other party stumbled as she pushed, and rushed forward several steps along the inertia. She was hugged by her shins, and she lost her balance and fell on the ground.
The moment Lin You fell, she thought that it was fortunate that there was a carpet padding her this time.
In the next second, with reflexive stubbornness, the maid’s long sharp nails rubbed her ears into the carpet.
In return, she bent her knees and pressed them heavily on the other’s stomach.
The maid grunted and yelled incomprehensibly. The pale face’s smile became more and more distorted—
Then she was beaten off balance with a horizontal punch.
Geng Qinghe returned but his teeth were clattering. He couldn’t lose his chance and not come back. He quickly saw her and grabbed the wrist of his teammate. Lin You’s reaction was quick enough. She took advantage of her strength to break away from the maid. She got up and rushed to the corner in the opposite direction when the maid came.
There is another room that is unlocked like the empty room.
Fortunately, there were too many cleaning supplies for the hotel in the stairwell, and it is not too crowded to stand with two people.
Ascending into the stairwell with only a dim yellow light, the two held their breath and waited for the rubbing of the carpet to pass by the door—it didn’t seem to notice that they were hiding here.
“Oh,” Lin You laughed when the sound disappeared completely, “I’m pretty bold this time.”
“Okay, okay, don’t tease me.”
Geng Qinghe still looked bitter, “What should I do now, how can I get the key from her?”
Lin You also sighed, “What can I do now—”
She stretched out her hand, her index finger hooked the bunch of keys that had hung on the maid’s waist. She pulled Geng Qinghe around, making him look straight at them.
God knows how she got them in just ten seconds.
“Now that we have the keys,” Lin You raised an eyebrow.
