I heard that I’m super fierce - Chapter 12

As the saying goes, don’t disturb the silence, but perish in the silence.
—Geng Qinghe saw that this one was about to disturb the silence.
There was a strange silence in the air, and the water that splashed on the ground was still dripping quietly, like a firecracker, dripping into a trickling stream until it reached Langton’s feet.
Because of this, he instinctively felt it was a bad turn of events.
This, this is really making the matter violent, and his face turned blue with anger?!
He looked desperately at the boss, trying to use eye contact to hint at her, but the boss just glanced at him.
Lin You even kicked the empty plastic bucket aside.
This sound shook Langton’s nerves even more.
Lin You thought that things would have to get to this point sooner or later. It would be better to say that it is the best choice to start now—the magic circle has just been completed, and some protective magic or spell is about to be cast. It will be too late by then.
Langton lowered his head with half of his face was buried in the shadows. For a long while, there was a sound coming from his mouth.
It was a series of unknown languages, and under his chanting in a low voice, he inexplicably brought out some indescribable horror. Langton’s speech was fast and pious as if calling something very earnestly.
In Lin You’s peripheral vision, she saw a few fingers move by the door.
Geng Qinghe didn’t look so good. Seeing that their expressions changed, Langton burst into a shrill laugh.
“Ha, ha ha ha ha ha—do you really think that there’s nothing I can do about it?”
He raised his head, his face full of madness, “As long as I wake up the dark heirs of the mother goddess, this superior can crush you as well!”
The rope-like tentacles by the door moved again, and they were about to creep out. Lin You suddenly reacted, holding the arm of the person next to her with her hand and running out of the hall.
Geng Qinghe couldn’t even freeze and ran after her.
Langton looked at the back of them running away coldly, and didn’t mean to stop them at all—he knew that they would not be able to escape the hotel, so he just had to enjoy this cat and mouse game.
While the hall door was thrown closed heavily, another door opened quietly.
The monster behind the door finally revealed its true body.
It was a huge mass that went up straight to the ceiling, completely dark. It was densely covered with sticky whip-like tentacles, and there were several huge mouths around it, and green mucus was constantly dripping from its sharp teeth.
The height of this building did not allow it to stand up completely, and the stubby hooves beneath it knelt on the ground, using it to move with snake-like tentacles.
The mass turned his head slowly, and even though he had no eyes, he could still feel that it was looking in the direction of Langton.
“Please catch them and bring them back.” The latter said respectfully.
On the other side of the door:
Before he ran out of the door, Geng Qinghe saw half of the monster while he was running in horror. “What kind of ghost is that?!”
Lin You was a little out of breath. In reality, she didn’t belong to the type with much energy. In “Box,” the player’s stamina value and various upper limits are determined by the profession. How much can a summoner, a long-range profession, hope for?
“Have,” she asked, “have you heard of the myth of Cthulhu?”
Geng Qinghe: “…What?”
“In short, it’s a horror legend.”
If she guessed correctly, this was the whole truth of this level, “For example, what you saw before was a giant slime, and the slime is from the inside of a creature called Shub—”
“So that is Shub?!”
“Listen to me!” Lin You said annoyed, “I felt strange when I heard the ‘Supreme Mother Goddess’, and then I saw what that guy looked like…”
“The mother goddess he said,” she said, “should be the black goat of the forest, Shub-Niggurath, who has bred thousands of offspring.”
Geng Qinghe was still at a loss for words.
“Since the one behind the door was called the ‘child of darkness’ by Langton, it’s most likely a black goat kid.”
Lin You took a deep breath, “They are the descendants of the so-called black goats, acting as agents of Shub-Niggurath. Langton’s previous ritual summoned them, and now they want to use us as sacrifices and use it to serve as a medium to summon Shub-Niggurath!”
“Ah—it doesn’t matter if you don’t understand! All in all, you just have to know that it is a mythical creature,” she hurriedly said, “There is not much chance of you winning if you go up against it!”
Geng Qinghe listened, “Then what shall we do now?!”
“Go down and tell them the news, and then—”
Lin You was silent for a few seconds.
Then just rely on your own abilities.
The hotel lobby was brightly lit.
Everyone was scattered on the sofa, and no one dared to relax a little bit in the lighting that would repel ghosts in horror movies. After all, it turns out that lighting has little effect on the guys here.
All of them were staring at the wall clock, hoping that the minute and second hands would go faster and faster, and quickly move to “6” so they could get out of the hotel.
Coincidentally, at this moment, there was a loud noise above the head, and it sounded like the movement of wood being violently broken by someone.
Chen Jun leaped up from the sofa.
“Did something happen to those two?” he asked alertly.
Before he finished his words, he heard a rush of footsteps, and the five people gathered together. They looked back and were relieved after seeing the two who had left.
“We’re all right—for now.” Lin You gasped, “There is good news and bad news, which do you want to hear first?”
“Bad news.” Chen Jun said subconsciously.
Lin You glanced at Geng Qinghe, the latter understood, and said in a few words what had happened during the investigation.
The hall was silent.
“So, so it’s that,” Wang Yan stammered, “If we stay here forever, will we actually be treated as a living sacrifice?”
“The situation is not much better now.”
Chen Jun looked at the two people and said solemnly, “Isn’t this irritating the guy to make him wake up the monster?”
“You mean you should do the summoning formation and let everyone finish it when the time comes?” Lin You returned without showing any weakness, and she withdrew her gaze, “Don’t forget, there is good news.”
“He was going to wait for the black goat kid to wake up on its own, mostly because it is in the best condition and the ceremony is most likely to succeed.”
She said: “This means that its power when it is forcibly awakened is not necessarily complete.”
“So,” Liang Yong realized, “we have a chance to escape?”
“Escape, where would you go?”
“How can you run when the doors and windows are locked?”
“What can you do even if you run away, if it’s really like the monster you said, wouldn’t it overtake you if you leave?”
The chattering discussion turned into a wall of sound, and Lin You silently made a quiet gesture.
The crowd fell silent.
They didn’t dare to look down on this girl now. Even if it wasn’t like Geng Qinghe witnessed what she did, just based on the results of the other party’s investigation and this overly calm attitude throughout, you should know that this girl is not so simple.
This is his first time and he’s new, this is the thigh, what are you waiting for if you don’t hug it?!
“This level is not a lost cause. We’ve seen the first to the third floor. Since there is nothing there, it proves that the exit must be on the fourth floor.”
There was a big lake next to it, so at worst, they can just jump directly off the roof.
…She felt that she had forgotten something.
But she didn’t care about it now.
“As for what to do later, isn’t the prompt obvious.” Lin You said, “—If a fire is not strong enough, then add more gasoline.”
It really fucking is.
Regardless of the black goat kid itself, at least according to the setting of this level, the proprietress once wanted to burn the entire hotel. Although her plan fell short in the end, in the attitude of these ghosts, it is useful to do so!
“I found a lighter.” Chen Jun said.
“There is gasoline, too,” Liang Yong remembered that he was a little embarrassed about his attitude toward others in the opening session. He took the initiative to say, “We saw it in the storage room on the third floor. I was still thinking this stuff was useful.”
Now think about it, maybe it was left behind by the boss.
“Then get gasoline on the road…”
Before the words fell, the wooden steps were clearly overwhelmed again from the stairs, and Lin You secretly cursed.
The black tentacles appeared.
—What else to say, run quickly!
“Distract it,” she shouted, “Go to the third floor!”
Fortunately, in the first-floor lobby, there were stairs on the left and right sides.
Qi Lanlan tripped and fell in panic, and fell behind the crowd when she recovered. She looked down and found a black thing on her waist.
Wang Yan turned his head and pulled it subconsciously, and watched as the thick tentacles flicked and its opponent was sent into one of the mouths.
Two screams sounded at the same time, but the sound from inside stopped abruptly in the middle.
—It decided she would be eliminated.
“Run!” Liang Yong gave Wang Yan a hand, “Otherwise you’ll be next!”
He still remembered where the gasoline was. As soon as he reached the third floor, the monster was still chasing after him, and his scalp was numb as he hurriedly went to open the door of the storage room, but the door that had been easily opened before could not be opened because his hands were shaking.
Anxiety kicked in.
The door opened, and Liang Yong quickly took out three barrels of gasoline from inside.
He sprinkled the gasoline as he ran until the corridor behind him was damp, and the black goat kid following behind was covered with gasoline.
Everyone panicked and rushed straight up the stairs leading to the fourth floor. Lin You quickly distinguished the downward direction. If Langton was in the banquet hall to send it off, she could only go to the other side—
Wang Yan screamed, “I see the ladder!”
As soon as he looked up, there was an obvious movement mark on the ceiling near the ladder—it really was the only way left for them. Liang Yong and Geng Qinghe hurriedly propped up the ladder and removed the board blocking the exit.
Chen Jun desperately flicked on the lighter and he was so anxious that he sweated until it finally started the fire.
The flames burst forth.
The space left by the board was only enough for one person to pass through, and Chen Jun, the last one, almost climbed onto the roof with the tip of his tentacles and the raging fire. As soon as he came up, he crawled to hide away. He knew that the other party was unable to come up for a while and saw the tentacles still poking out of the hole and waving, and the black goat kid underneath hitting the ceiling still frightened him.
“There is a crack.” He said with a pale face.
“It seems that it will come up sooner or later,” Lin You said, “Hurry up and jump.”
The hotel was next to a lake, and no one knew the depth underneath. Even if it is deep enough to jump from more than ten meters, it is very likely to use a lot of physical strength.
But it’s the only thing that can be done now.
A strong sense of weightlessness struck, and Lin You held her breath and fell straight into the water.
She opened her eyes underwater and saw that the strength bar had been reduced by half. She was about to go upstream when she suddenly felt that something cold wind around her.
At that moment, Lin You finally remembered what she had forgotten.
She lowered her head and saw a swollen face.
