I heard that I’m super fierce - Chapter 104

Lin You naturally wasn’t so stupid that she would tell the truth.
She silently listened to them discussing the current predicament, and she almost said that those guys had been cleaned up by her, and there was no need to fight with air.
Anyhow, it was held back.
The new teammate agreed: “The most important thing is to be careful.”
“Speaking of,” he had a buzzcut and looked very energetic. “Walking around, all the players who came across said that we were D-class personnel who were detained as criminals. So what about those researchers?”
The other person answered casually. He had a square face with a wide forehead.
He saw that they were all looking at him, and he spoke immediately.
“Didn’t you see?” At this moment, he couldn’t tell where he was. He had to point in a random direction. “When I first came out, I ran into a man in a white coat who fell from the ceiling. Even his chest was dirty, looking at its title, it looked like a doctor.”
Lin You: “Dirty?”
She asked curiously and saw the other nod.
“So was the place where it fell.”
He recalled: “It was dripping like black mud as if it had been corroded, and then the doctor was also stained…”
“But he was dead at that time.”
The teammate added.
“His face and hands looked like they had cracked when he was alive. I tried to search for it, but I didn’t find anything.”
The faces of Lin You and the man with gold-rimmed glasses both showed something clear.
Listening to this description, there was no doubt that it was the Old Man.
It’s just that the two people thought differently. Compared with the teammate who was thinking about the dangers lurking around him, Lin You’s mind was thinking of how she left that miserable “pocket dimension” looking like it was hit by a typhoon.
It’s easy to understand why this site doesn’t have much liveness left.
The SCPs breached containment, and the nearby employees suffered first. The first batch of victims appeared, and the Foundation would evacuate the remaining personnel as soon as possible, but when it came to the D-class, they were no longer within their protection.
After all, they were originally prisoners on death row, and in emergency situations, they could no longer control them in the “cell”. The biggest reason why the Foundation had not used nuclear bombs to hit the base directly was most likely to prevent those abnormal projects from getting out of control.
Especially for SCP-682, the Foundation had not used nuclear tests to solve it because they were afraid that it would evolve adaptability to nuclear radiation, which would greatly lose the cards they hold against it.
In a sense, Lin You thought, they might have to thank the Indestructible Reptile.
“It’s a pity,” the guy with the buzzcut muttered, “If you can find one or two living people, you can figure out how all this happened.”
Obviously, it was not only Lin You who was going to investigate the truth behind this containment breach, but also some people thought of going together.
“—Wait a minute.”
The one with the buzzcut suddenly remembered.
“Did someone say that they heard the voice from the helicopter?”
“I said it.” The man quickly raised his hand, “What is it?”
“The helicopter is not far away, right?”
“It’s pretty close. It feels like it’s about two or three meters above the ceiling.”
The one with the buzzcut happily said, “That’s it.”
He simply sat cross-legged on the spot and somehow took out a computer from his backpack. He put the laptop in front of him and turned it on, and within a few seconds, they watched the screen light up.
Lin You really considered for a while whether to tell them that SCP-682 was paralyzed not far away and finally decided to give up.
Anyway, there was still a long way to go. If it really recovered completely, with its violent temper, it would definitely make a lot of noise.
Then there would be no time to slip away.
She estimated that this was the buzzcut’s ability. She watched him tapping the keyboard, pulling out two earphones, and putting them in one by one, and his expression became more concentrated.
“I heard it.”
He said suddenly.
“I intercepted their signal, but I only partially deciphered it.” The man with the buzzcut frowned and repeated confidently, “Just like who said just now, ‘All resident agents are destroyed’…’Approval of the request for assistance’, and ‘Mobile Task Force Omega-7’…”
“Are you sure it’s ‘Omega-7’?” The man with glasses interrupted him immediately.
The one with the buzzcut said “Ah, I must have heard it right.”
“…What?” he asked suspiciously.
“‘Omega-7’ is just a code name, if it’s that task force,” said the man with gold rim glasses, “Their name is Pandora’s Box.”
Lin You said nothing.
It seemed that they were at a time when O7 was still active.
The Mobile Task Force is a special armed force under the jurisdiction of the Foundation.
If there is a situation at a certain site that cannot be resolved by the agents there, such as a high-risk containment breach, a task force will be deployed from elsewhere to help suppress it.
And the most special point of “Omega-7” is also the reason why it is called “Pandora’s Box”—
It is the only task force with SCP participation.
In other words, it is simply built with certain humanoid SCPs as the core.
Thus, the name “Pandora’s Box”—as the name suggests, the Foundation began to use the power of supernatural creatures to a certain extent, just like opening Pandora’s box.
“The team leader is a violent man.”
The man with glasses habitually pushed up his spectacles, “He almost killed SCP-682 in the first place. If I really run into him, it will be all over.”
“Then don’t we have to run quickly?” The buzzcut man closed the computer with a “slap”, “To find some more weapons or something?”[Read this novel and other amazing translated novels from the original source at the “Novel Multiverse dot com” website @ novelmultiverse.com]
…Although you can’t beat it if you can’t beat it, you can take it with peace of mind anyway!
“Can you find something near here?”
He turned his head, “Look, this room is not locked. Do you want to go in and search?”
When Lin You was led here by the Possessive Mask at the beginning, she really didn’t notice that there was a door beside her. But if you think about it, you probably won’t be able to hide too many important things.
Other people had the same idea, but they always thought about it just in case. With a little expectation, all five people rushed in.
It looked like a break room for employees to use for short breaks.
The man with glasses opened the door of the cabinet first.
“Here is a flashlight,” he saw the contents inside, his eyes lit up, “And a gas mask.”
“I found a knife!”
The excited tone of the buzzcut immediately turned sour, “…But it’s a fruit knife.”
Compared with the two of them, Lin You only found a cigarette case.
She sighed halfway and suddenly felt something was wrong.
Since the one who stayed here before was a smoker, it meant that—
Lin You quickly opened several drawers of the table, and the front was empty, but fortunately, she really saw a lighter in the back corner.
Holding the lighter and tossing it up and down, she tried to light the fire again. Lin You thought that it could at least be used to shine a light.
She just didn’t know how much fuel was left.
The lounge was quite empty, as they thought, and there was nothing to find.
After leaving the door again and turning the corner, the teammate walking next to Lin You sighed.
“I just found half a rotten fruit core, what do you think it is?”
“There is still something in the front.” The buzzcut man leaned against the wall and said absently, “I—”
His words stopped abruptly.
There was a dreamlike look mixed with confusion on his face. He was just standing there as if immersed in great happiness.
The person walking in front of him noticed something was wrong, and turned around, “What…”
The words further down disappeared when the latter saw the situation in front of him clearly.
A thin, dry old lady with disheveled hair leaned on the buzzcut man’s head and shoulder, with blood on the corners of her mouth, and gave him a gloomy smile.
She ripped off a piece of meat from his shoulder abruptly and was chewing it in her mouth. In the next second, before anyone could react, she opened her mouth again and gnawed at the buzzcut man’s throat.
As for the man with the buzzcut himself, he was still standing there with a smirk like it was nothing.
The blood spewed out, splashing all the people who were close. Keeping his previously calm tone, the man in glasses shouted excitedly: “Don’t touch him! It can’t be saved!”
No one can be saved if his throat is torn in this way. He was probably already out of the game. Lin You turned around without any hesitation.
“Keep sneaking.” After Liang Siting treated the leg injury and did not affect her actions, she realized that the butler might have to show up. She lowered her voice, and didn’t know if he could hear her, “Don’t come out in a hurry.”
The situation was not completely out of control.
“Fuck fuck fuck!”
The square-faced teammate collapsed and said, “What the hell is this!”
“SCP-352,” Lin You turned her head for a while, and saw the skinny old lady rip off the limbs from the man with the buzzcut and turn her head to look at them, apparently trying to catch up, “Baba Yaga!”
“Isn’t that a witch in a Russian fairy tale?”
“Obviously it’s more than a fairy tale!”
The man with glasses was probably not very good at sports. He was a little bit out of breath after running two steps, “It’s still contained here—”
“Didn’t you look at the wall he was holding on? Take a closer look at the translucent hair,” he squeezed out his voice laboriously, “He was entangled as soon as he touched it!”
“What the hell?!”
Lin You breathed a sigh of relief.
“Her hair can be as long as she wants, and it’s covered with a layer of stuff. When it touches the human body, it will react automatically, attacking the nervous system and causing hallucinations.”
“She likes to eat human flesh. If you only touch her hair, you may recover. If you are bitten, you will completely lose your mind and let her kill—”
Unable to explain more, the square-faced teammate turned around and saw that the old woman was really catching up, and cursed in a low voice. When he turned his head again and saw the wide-open door in front of him, he seemed to have grasped the last straw.
“There is a door ahead!”
It’s impossible to run against Baba Yaga—she narrowed the distance between them drastically in just a few seconds and finding a place to hide was the best policy.
When the last person broke in hastily, he closed the door behind him. When he screwed on the door bolt twice and wanted to continue to push it, he suddenly yelled “Ah” and retreated several steps like he was being bounced off.
The fine and dense hair was almost transparent, and it had penetrated into the crack of the door like a thread, and it was still trying to wriggle on the door bolt. The purpose is very clear—just to open this door so that they can also be treated as a meal.
“This—what can we do?” The square-faced teammate stammered without touching anything, “If there is a knife…”
“The one with the knife has been eaten.”
The teammate who entered the door finally covered his face, “But we can’t cut it without touching it, but do you dare to touch it?”
“There is only one way left,” he gritted his teeth. “To look for any other way out of this room and get rid of this guy.”
Thinking about it, it was the same reason. The two of them looked around in this seemingly closed laboratory, wishing to find another door or window, and luckily wondered if there would be a secret door or something.
Lin You took a deep breath.
To her, there was no solution.
While they were not paying attention, Lin You squatted down quietly and used a lighter to pierce it little by little. Since it was hair, it should be able to burn along the line—
That was the time when she was distracted. She raised her head, and after seeing the lens, there were eyes staring at her.
Lin You: “…”
Man with glasses: “…”
It was too late to stop.
The flame at the top of the lighter swayed, igniting the bunch of hair in the crack of the door.[Read this novel and other amazing translated novels from the original source at the “Novel Multiverse dot com” website @ novelmultiverse.com]
