I heard that I’m super fierce - Chapter 109
Translator: NovelMultiverse | Editor: NovelMultiverse
The girl who had been dragging her feet stopped abruptly, and the well-trained agents noticed her movement and turned around suspiciously.
After entering the site, they split into groups of two or three—just as they did before. The captain of “Pandora’s Box” was Able, but it can be divided into the Able Group and the Iris Group under the subdivision.
The groups were also chosen because of the different functions of the two, but this did not mean that her group’s combat effectiveness was inferior.
Andrea and Beatrice were both old members of the Iris team. Although they had their own reasons for joining Omega-7, the former was still forced to be forced into the team because she won a game of chess with Able and was forced to be the psychological counselor, but it would not hinder the establishment of a deep friendship between them.
The two of them were looking at her worriedly.
Young people always receive more attention. Iris was the youngest on the team. She had just turned seventeen. When the Foundation contained her under the designation “SCP-105”, she was less than fifteen years old.
But what caught their attention now was not only her sudden stop but also a photo pinched in her hand.
“Did you find anything?” Beatrice asked. She remembered that it seemed to be taken when they were up a floor, “Iris?”
Iris replied reflexively.
“I, uh,” she acted naturally afterward, “I just wanted to confirm the situation, but unfortunately I didn’t see it.”
Andrian—the former master of psychology—felt something was wrong, but he found no trace of lying on Iris’s face. He watched her comfortably put the photo back into the pocket of her trousers.
Just less than ten minutes ago, they received a message from another group that a new anomaly had appeared on the site. The agent who had witnessed it first described the appearance and behavioral characteristics of the other party to his companions. The superiors asked them to contain the high-risk creatures as soon as possible while also containing the new SCP as soon as possible.
Because they immediately determined that the approaching armed squad to the north had the logo of the “Chaos Insurgency” organization.
In this world where supernatural things are rampant, of course, there is more than one organization like the Foundation.
The Chaos Insurgency is a long-standing rival to the Foundation and has planned multiple attacks to snatch SCPs before. Now that they were here, they might be responsible for this containment breach.
The new SCP was suspected to be inextricably linked to SCP-106 and SCP-682, and she must not be allowed to fall into the hands of the Chaos Insurgency.
“If you notice anything.”
Andrea finally said: “Will you tell us?”
“Of course.” Iris just smiled even though she was anxious.
She supported the camera hanging around her neck, and then walked, and stuffed the photo again without a trace.
In fact, she just saw a young woman who fits the description perfectly—though, for some reason, a butler-like guy was behind the target—flicker in the photo.
But she wouldn’t say it.
Iris carefully observed the two agents walking in front, and tried to take a step back gently.
…When should she take action?
This was really evil.
When she walked away from the group of people in Pandora’s Box, she could run into it everywhere; now that she had a plan, she wished the two people would take her to another site of the Foundation, but they could not see anyone.
Lin You muttered.
“Where did they go?”
She wandered upstairs and downstairs for so long, and let alone a human being, and she didn’t even see her image. The butler followed behind her and was eager to talk, and he almost forgot what he was going to say.
“Are you sure you want to do this?” He finally asked.
“Yes,” Lin You answered without hesitation, “It’s a great opportunity!”
The butler solemnly said: “I advise you to think twice.”
Lin You: “Huh?”
“I’ve been on this site before,” he thought about his words. “It was not the way it is now. I have seen how they used strict measures to monitor SCPs that were considered difficult to contain.”
The target of his allegiance was always the person who rang the bell, and now he naturally explained the Foundation information he knew clearly.
For example, the Possessive Mask is kept in a lead-shielded room with a triple lock, and the glass window for it is four inches thick. No one can enter the room at any time. SCP-682 is immersed in strong hydrochloric acid throughout the day and the inner wall of the container is also lined with two-decimeter-thick steel plates. The Old Man is even worse. He is sealed in forty layers of walls of the same material, and there are 16 spherical rooms on the outside with lighting systems.
After such a large-scale containment breach, the Foundation will inevitably learn a lesson. At this time, it would be an unwise choice to pretend to be an SCP by mistake.
“I am confident that I can escape.”
Lin You waved her hand indifferently, “Furthermore, even if the situation is unusual, aren’t you still here?”
There was nothing happier than the recognition of his work. Diaz paid a solemn salute and again put on his usual gentle smile, “Please rest assured, everything will be on my body then.”
“Okay, very good. Just keep this motivation.” Before he could react to what he promised, Lin You immediately said, “I am hopeful about you!”
Facts have proved that while walking in this large-scale containment breach with monsters running all over the floor, it is not surprising that even a thousand-throated beast sprang out in the next second. Lin You was also a person who had seen the world. After turning around the corner, she saw a few drops of blood and didn’t even blink.
The semicircular pools of blood flowed from pool to pool and finally dripped into one piece. Two people fell at the end of this string of intermittent bloodstains, all wearing contingent standard equipment, and the guns on their sides were twisted.
Lin You stopped the butler and motioned for her to come by herself. She walked closer and observed the movement around her. When she squatted down and felt a piece of ice, she knew that it might take a while. And when she turned over the person’s body, she saw that the front soaked with blood had dried up, and further up she could see the blood clots between the slit throats.
The wound seemed to have been slashed by a sharp blade, killing him in one blow. But to evaluate that technique, there was really no suitable adjective other than “stable, accurate, and ruthless.”
—Able did it.
Lin You had this idea almost immediately. She looked at the corpse next to her again. This agent apparently lived ten seconds longer than his colleagues, and it was he who dragged out a bloodstain, but it was a pity that he was killed by Able’s sword.
She caught some scattered movements in her ears, and it sounded like someone was walking in this direction—after waiting for so long, she finally ran into a living person. It was just completely different from the sound of iron-toed boots stomping on the ground that she had heard before. Lin You estimated that it was an ordinary player, and the butler was standing behind her without turning his head.
“If I were you.”
She said, “I wouldn’t be here at this time. God knows where Able will go—”
The familiar voice interrupted her.
Lin You was taken aback.
She turned her head and saw someone standing at the end of the corridor, her expression full of astonishment. The other party also wore the iconic orange uniform of the D-class personnel. Although she couldn’t see his face when she was far away, she recognized her stature and voice after so many years of getting along with her.
Jian Mingjia sighed heavily, “I found you! You can never imagine what I have experienced.”
“It’s okay,” Lin You said with a smile, “You certainly can’t think of what I went through.”
Jian Mingjia: “…”
No, is that something you want to get? You are thinking about whether there will be a psychological shadow in the future!
Lin You looked at each other up and down. Jian Mingjia also had some bloodstains on the corners of her clothes, but it seemed that she was either not her own, or she had been bandaged herself, and would no longer be affected—the only suspicious thing was this time. She opened her mouth hesitantly, as if she had something to say but didn’t know where to start.
“Are you the only one who is coming?” Lin You asked actively, “Did you see Geng Qinghe?”
Jian Mingjia frowned.
“I just want to say.”
She was silent for a few seconds and continued: “As you know, the players who entered this instance have been scattered. I also just met him not long ago—”
“Something happened anyway. It’s impossible to leave it alone. I found an empty room nearby and finally stuffed him in. I wondered if I could stay in the same place all the time, so I just went out to see if I could find someone to help me. …”
This time it was good, and she suddenly saw her own childhood friend.
She only glanced at the man who looked like a butler behind her and did not ask too much. Lin You mentioned to her about receiving the butler’s bell as a reward for an event.
“After talking for a long time,” Lin You asked curiously, “What the hell is going on?”
Jian Mingjia looked complicated.
She curled her finger, “Just come and see.”
She saw Lin You within two steps after she walked out, and it wouldn’t take a minute to lead the person back at this moment. When Jian Mingjia opened the door, Lin You’s eyelids twitched.
It was a very small office, and the staff who originally worked here may not have high authority. Geng Qinghe was quite tall, but now he squeezed his hands and feet against a white board.
He looked dazed, holding a piece of bread motionlessly.
She didn’t know where the bread came from.
After observing Geng Qinghe for almost two minutes, he still didn’t move. Lin You blinked, “…what’s the matter with him?”
“According to my observations,” Jian Mingjia’s mouth twitched, “He may think he is a toaster now.”
Lin You: “…”
“He didn’t move because he wanted to wait for the slice of bread to pop out by itself.”
She looked weird and said, “…Fortunately, he hasn’t even thought about electrifying himself.”
“Wait, I remembered—’I am a toaster’ is also an SCP.” Lin You looked at Geng Qinghe’s stiff appearance, “Anyone near will be affected and try to imitate it. Some former victims were electrocuted, and some people swallowed bread and choked.”
Jian Mingjia sighed.
“Anyway, I didn’t see a toaster around here,” she looked around. “Maybe he resisted for a while, but he still didn’t resist.”
“It shouldn’t be impossible to save him.”
Lin You said: “Maybe he will slowly wake up himself, but let’s look for it…”
She stood up as she spoke, but her voice disappeared.
She stared at the corner of the whiteboard.
The whole white board was full of complicated and obscure equations, but at this moment, a sentence was written abruptly in the nearby corner.
—Don’t go out.
Lin You stared at the line. It was like seeing her doubts, and there seemed to be an invisible hand in the air grabbing the eraser in the groove, quickly erasing the numbers on the side, and writing a few more words.
“‘He’?” Jian Mingjia also noticed the movement here, and she wondered, “Could it be that Able you were talking about?”
I don’t know, Lin You thought, she didn’t know whether she should believe these two lines.
But thinking for four or five seconds, she made a decision. With a look, the butler who followed up closed the door with insight.
He did it quite promptly, and almost in the next instant, they heard someone turn the corridor and slowly approach at the same time.[Read this novel and other amazing translated novels from the original source at the “Novel Multiverse dot com” website @ novelmultiverse.com]
Without reminding them, Jian Mingjia immediately leaned down. Thanks to her preparation, she dragged Geng Qinghe into the blind corner of the window.
Ordinary people didn’t have the mental quality and concentration of Lin You. Listening to the undisguised footsteps outside the door, Jian Mingjia’s scalp was about to explode. And when the man stopped at the door, her heart hung in her throat.
Able stared at the door silently.
The saber he was holding was still dripping blood, and his clothes were covered with spray-like blood. The previous suffocation was swept away, and the happy smile brought by the killing still stayed on his face.
He looked a little strange.
But when he looked closely, he couldn’t detect any signs of anyone. Able only thought for a few seconds, then moved on again to find new prey.
In Able’s own words, he was a soldier, not a general. He would not think so much.
This was lucky.
When he suffocated them and walked away, Jian Mingjia’s heart finally recovered abruptly, and she was panting with lingering fears.
“I think I should be grateful that Little Geng thought he was a toaster,” Jian Mingjia said in an unpleasant way. “If it’s an electric kettle, wouldn’t it be troublesome?”
In case the guy suddenly boiled water when he passed by, wouldn’t he make a whistle?
Lin You: “…Huh.”
She looked at the smeared white board again and found that just as they carefully avoided Able, one more word has been added to it.
“This…” Jian Mingjia looked at her and frowned.
She knew that Lin You could speak easily, but now she was surprised by what the other party said, “I know who did it.”
“I’ve met the other teammates before,” Lin You summarized her previous experience in a few words, “I was thinking of seeing if I could find the survivors to find out what was going on, but I ran into Foundation reinforcements. The Mobile Task Force is a ‘Pandora’s Box’ in which the humanoid SCP participates. Able, you just saw. This is another person’s handwriting.”
SCP-105, “Iris”, which can detect and manipulate objects through photos.
Most likely, she happened to have taken a few photos near here, so that she could see Able and their trail, and was able to warn them in advance.
But the question is…why should she help them?
It was true that the purpose of the Foundation was to “control, contain, and protect” everything. Although they wanted to contain her, it would certainly ensure that she would not be killed by Able on the way.
“Are you going?” Jian Mingjia guessed her thoughts from her expression.
“Of course,” Lin You said instinctively. She should not mention to the other party that she wanted to pretend to be a new SCP and be contained. She only said slyly, “It’s just to help us in some way.
“Stay here for now.”
Lin You said: “I’ll look at the situation, I may be back later.”
Now the Foundation mistakenly believed that she was an SCP, and may have changed her view, but under special circumstances, their attitude towards D-class personnel had always been to kill.
If Iris was led by the Foundation at the direction of the Foundation, it would be better not to ask Jian Mingjia to follow along.
“Although I want to tell you to pay attention to safety…” Jian Mingjia didn’t know such a level of cause and effect and did not suspect her under instinctive trust. “But I now think that it is not you but the ghosts who should pay attention to safety.”
With so many instances, she realized that everything was as good as a fish to Lin You, and now she really didn’t worry much. Moreover, there was a butler following, and it was easy to get out of it in any situation.
“But be careful anyway,” she added.
Lin You answered. She carefully observed the outside, and only got out after she was sure that there was nothing unusual. What the butler did was to be polite and abide by his duties. When he carefully came to the door, Lin You also turned around and walked directly.
The message that Iris left her only said to let her go downstairs, and she assumed it was the nearest stairway. The direction Able was going was far from it, so she didn’t worry about it. For this reason, Lin You still suppressed the footsteps as much as possible.
Stepping down the last step, she looked around but did not see the agents.
“Weird,” Lin You muttered to herself, “What about people?”
“It’s only me.”
At first, Lin You couldn’t find where the sound was for a while until she turned around and saw a narrow, open door.
The only contingent member she had seen who didn’t wear a uniform except Able—Iris—had a pale face and was hiding behind the door.
“Come here,” the blond-haired blue-eyed girl pleaded, “I don’t want them to find out.”
Lin You exchanged glances with the butler, and even if it was a little unexpected, she followed.
Iris was not deceiving, and the room was empty. At the same time, she was so vigilant that she was a little panicked. After Lin You and the other came in, she immediately closed the door, and Lin You, the guy who was scheduled to be contained, was afraid of being discovered.
“I’m begging you.”
As soon as she closed the door, Iris immediately said, “Take me away.”
Lin You: “…Huh?”
“I ran away while they were not paying attention.”
She could hear that she was nervous, “If you are found out, you will definitely be arrested.”
“I heard about SCP-682,” Iris whispered in a low voice, “Can you help me in the same way?”
“I really don’t want to stay here anymore. Everyone treats me well, but I can’t stand being under surveillance all the time. It’s simply torture—”
She took a deep breath.
“I thought about it for a long time and came up with a plan, but I don’t know if it will work.”
Lin You said nothing.
She had heard about Iris and knew the result of the escape plan.
A doctor of the Foundation who sympathized with her will issue a report for her that she had lost her supernatural ability and let her go. But Iris was still blocked by the agents at the airport just before leaving and was forced to prove her abilities before she was taken back.
It’s just that she didn’t expect that she started planning so early.
“Since you have appeared now,” Iris pleaded, “For the sake of helping you hide your whereabouts and not telling others, can you…”
Lin You: “Uh—”
“But I just want to be discovered,” she said.
How else would you plan it?
Iris was stunned.
Maybe it was a dream. She never expected that someone would be taken into custody voluntarily. She looked at Lin You in confusion.
The latter coughed.
“This—I have my reasons for doing this, but don’t worry, I’ll do this for you.” There was no reason for the card to be delivered to the door, not to mention Iris’s ability was very good, “It’s just that you have to cooperate with me a bit.”
Iris hesitated, “…How should I cooperate?”
“We’ll talk later.”
Lin You pointed down, “Will you come downstairs with me now?”
Her original plan was to throw herself into the net, and then let the Foundation recover SCP-173, and then she would think of a way.
Unexpectedly, Iris was sincere. Since there were more people, the three of them would have more time to face the statue in a rotation. Lin You thought that she could try again if she could find a way to close SCP-173.
She clearly remembered the way to that staircase, and even if she didn’t remember, the butler could make it clear.
Lin You silently recalled the route in her mind, seeing that there was only a wall away from the destination, but she saw several people wandering nearby from a distance.
—If it was the Foundation, it was okay; she would immediately pat her chest and say that she was the new SCP they were looking for.
But the logo on their uniforms was not the Foundation’s.
“These guys…” She narrowed her eyes.
Iris’s complexion turned pale again.
“It’s the Chaos Insurgency,” Iris murmured.
Unexpectedly, they really broke in.
Lin You’s eyelids twitched.
She knew that it was an organization that was completely hostile to the Foundation. “The containment breach this time has something to do with them?”
Iris said “Yes.”
“Andrea and the others suspected that there was an undercover agent from the Chaos Insurgency inside Site 19. They planned this containment breach and wanted to take the opportunity to take away some of the most valuable SCPs.”
But having said that, Lin You thought, most of them have become stuck.
—Unfortunately, the Chaos Insurgency was so busy, she picked them up cheaply.
“Don’t worry about this.”
Lin You said: “Let’s just go around quietly…”
As soon as the words were spoken, she suddenly felt something strange behind her. Lin You turned around abruptly and faced the eyes of the Chaos Insurgency soldiers who appeared behind them at some point.
The latter was holding a gun, staring at Iris’s face, and shouted: “Found SC—”
The butler’s hand knife slashed at the back of his neck severely, interrupting the unfinished sentence. Unfortunately, it was too late, and his voice had already attracted the group of accomplices opposite.
From Lin You’s perspective, they all pointed their guns in this direction when they whispered a few words.
“Go straight into that iron door!”
Lin You quickly turned to the butler again and said, “Don’t protect me.”
It would be troublesome if he blocked the gun here.
No better than the Foundation’s protective attitude, the Chaos Insurgency fired without hesitation.
The scorching breeze passed by. Lin You was no better than an agent who had undergone combat training. Even if she had avoided as much as possible, a bullet still scratched her calf and left a wound.
Unbiasedly, it was the place where the Old Man had grasped, and bleeding came from the bandage that had wrapped it.
Lin You staggered a step, but at this moment the butler quickly turned around and pulled her, letting her enter the door directly.
The iron door closed unexpectedly!
The attack did not stop there. The gunshots continued, leaving raised bullet marks on the door, and it was only a matter of time before the Chaos Insurgency broke into the door.
Lin You glanced at the panting Iris. Iris was an intelligence officer. Although her experience at Omega-7 had helped her to develop combat abilities to some extent, it was obviously unrealistic to let her fight against the group of gunmen outside with her bare hands.
However, she had another idea.
“Can you lend me the camera?” Lin You asked.
“Oh,” Iris took a moment to take off the Polaroid hanging from her neck, “Of course.”
Lin You carefully took over the old camera she had used for many years.
Only Iris can use it to take photos that can be manipulated easily, but it can only take ordinary photos when it falls into the hands of others—what Lin You wanted was ordinary.
“If only there is glue…” she muttered.
Before she finished her words, a stick of glue was passed into her hand. Lin You was taken aback and looked at the smiling butler.
—She almost forgot. As long as it was not too outrageous, he gave her what she wanted, as long as it wasn’t too time-consuming.
“This is easier.” She said with a smile.
“Excuse me,” asked the butler, “What do you want to do?”
“It’s not difficult.”
Lin You said: “Since they want SCPs, I can take the initiative to give it to them—it depends on whether they have the guts to accept it.”
Hearing this was not a good premonition.
“Don’t open your eyes for a while. I will close my eyes the whole time.”
She flicked the back of the selected card, and turned to the butler, “Then you have to move the statue out, stare at a certain part of it and tell me when it’s good. Don’t look anywhere else.”
Two minutes later.
The leader of the Chaos Insurgency squad kicked the door open.
The iron gate had already been made fragile by a shuttle bullet, and it was hanging crookedly on the side. But they couldn’t take care of this, and step by step tentatively walked forward in the dark with their guns.
It was said that SCP-105 was hiding inside, and as long as they catch her, they will gain a lot of merits.
There were insiders ambushing the Foundation, and they naturally knew the contents of Site 19 and some other SCPs.
A little white thing suddenly appeared in the field of vision.
Seeing the statue not far away was different from ordinary people’s horrified reaction, the team leader was actually overjoyed.
“We found the treasure, it’s SCP-173!” he shouted.
SCP-173 stretched out two shorthands and stood in front of a tightly closed door. Although they didn’t know where the mess came from, it was enough for the Chaos Insurgency.
“Everyone is watching it! Don’t let it move! Now move it to—”
When he got closer, the team leader’s voice disappeared.
Looking at the scene in front of them, there were four big words in their minds.
—”Heaven will kill me.”
The statue, which will break your neck if you don’t stare at it, was stuck all over with photos.
Although the photos were not very clear and unified, the content of the photos was all SCP-096’s face.
While seeing those photos—
A scream broke through the wall.[Read this novel and other amazing translated novels from the original source at the “Novel Multiverse dot com” website @ novelmultiverse.com]
