I heard that I’m super fierce - Chapter 13
Translator: NovelMultiverse | Editor: NovelMultiverse
Lin You had seen this face once before.
That was when she was investigating the bedroom of the hotel owner and his wife. There was a picture frame on the bedside cabinet that was knocked onto the table. The woman in the photo smiled gently and kindly, but her eyes were swollen and distorted, and her mouth was twisted into a vicious arc.
She still relied on the little remaining feeling of similarity between her five senses and her previous guesses about her rank to connect the two.
The water ghost was pulling her down. Lin You sighed and kicked the opponent’s wrist decisively, and swam upward when it let go from the pain.
But before she could swim far, she realized that she was tangled up in something again.
This time it was jet-black hair, densely tied around her calf, and now she was falling down faster than before. She was being pulled further and further away from the surface of the lake, and the air in her lungs was being gradually squeezed out. Lin You reached down and touched her pocket.
This thing had its heart set to retaliate against her. She knew that this was the opponent’s home court, and she had no tools at hand, and she didn’t know if a knife could cut its hair.
Lin You thought quickly.
Think about what you can use, and what can be the best solution to this situation—
Her body suddenly felt light, as if it was suddenly pulled away.
At the very next moment, someone caught the water ghost’s wrist.
The guy’s words were gentle and soft, and the water ghost turned its head, its bloody face pressed against her ear and smiling terribly.
“What are you doing?”
CONGRATULATIONS, THE STORY GUIDE FOR THE D-LEVEL COPY OF “HOTEL 626” IS COMPLETE.
YOUR PERFORMANCE IN THIS COPY IS JUDGED AS — S.
Her vision dimmed again, and after standing in the main interface space, Lin You felt she had to express something.
“Next time start off easier,” she said seriously, “everyone will be your colleagues in the future. This is not good, it will be very embarrassing.”
“I will not,” Xue Yao replied confidently, leaving the level of “Strange School Chatter.” At this time, her existence as a bixian was closer to the spirit body. She was lightly floating in the air, “Serves them right, to those who hit you.”
She no longer had the peeled-back-skin look when she was frightened by the water ghost and had restored her delicate and pretty face.
“Besides, she hasn’t beaten it. It’s also that she lost face, not me.”
…That’s also a reason.
Lin You chuckled, and then looked at the R card in her hand, and felt that the water ghost’s puffy face on the card was a bit angrier.
—Why did you say this? She didn’t intend to care about it anymore. She rushed her into the bathtub and it was all done. Isn’t this the person who visited for nothing?
Luckily, this time there was a card.
“Speaking of which,” Lin You said curiously, “How did you come out before?”
The current Xue Yao was “summoned” after she tried to open the picture book again and took down the bixian card. She didn’t do that in the lake.
The other party was more confused than her, “Didn’t you call me?”
…Strictly speaking, it was not considered a call at that time.
Lin You stared at the illustrated book open in the air, lost in thought.
She thought of her own abilities at that moment, but it was an effort thinking about it. The water ghost was caught there. As for the future…
Xue Yao was also a former boss. The one-sided battle situation was too pitiful, it’s best to not mention it.
This is the first time that she had actually used the Summoner profession in the instance, which proved that if she wanted to use her abilities, she didn’t necessarily have to summon the illustrated book first. As long as it is an existing card, it was okay to say it in her head, even if it was just a vague keyword.
This was very convenient, but other restrictions were not small.
“How long were you out then, one minute?” she asked.
Xue Yao: “Well, almost.”
In other words, the ghosts she summoned can only exist for about a minute.
But there were definitely more restrictions than this. For example, the ability is estimated to have a cooling-off time, otherwise, the constant call will invalidate that restriction.
As for how long the cooling time is, that has to be tested in the next instance.
If these two restrictions are as she thought, the use of this ability has to be planned carefully, and the random summoning without a plan is not to be used with cheers of GG.
“Got it,” Lin You nodded, “You go back. There was a dripping noise over there, I’ll take a look.”
After reluctantly responding, Xue Yao turned around, and her figure dissipated into the air.
Lin You walked to the light screen.
After the water ghost was beaten to the ground, she put the extra card into the picture book.
She was the only one being stared at, and the others who were still alive floated to the surface with their remaining stamina. They were still wondering why there was a missing person. Geng Qinghe was planning to go down to find someone again, and Lin You came up later.
Finally, the black goat kid slowly broke out and disappeared into the fire together with the hotel.
The blaze was so hot that the air was scorched. When the survivors trekked over to the car, the moisture in their clothes was mostly dried.
Everyone else’s cell phones were soaked with water, but fortunately, Wang Yan left hers in the car. Without the interference of this supernatural hotel, the call successfully went through.
A few hours later, amid the noise of helicopter propellers, the system declared customs clearance.
After going through all this, everyone clearly realized which person was the real boss.
Looking at the series of friend requests in the notification list displayed on the light screen, Lin You reluctantly clicked “Reject” all of them.
Naturally, there was also a social system in “Box.” If a player encountered a teammate that they want in a certain game, they can search and send a friend request after the instance is over, and they can also team up in the future—of course, only if they know the real name of the opponent.
If a pseudonym is used from the beginning, it means that people don’t have this intention, and naturally, they don’t even have to think about it.
Lin You stopped.
One person can pass.
After clearing the notification list, she received a communication request not long after.
Lin You got in touch easily, waiting a long time for the other party to speak.
Lin You: “No sound?”
“I have sound,” the other side said hurriedly, “I’m a little nervous—ah, I got an A evaluation by the boss and finally got the friend of the boss award or something.”
“I haven’t seen you so deficient.”
“I was scared!”
Geng Qinghe didn’t feel ashamed, “Really, I’ve seen all the ghosts along the way, I just haven’t seen so many together before.”
Lin You: “Then how did you survive before?”
Geng Qinghe: “…It’s just, I was a little deaf and blind, I didn’t find any strange things?”
“I’ve survived,” he said quietly, “but the evaluations were all B or C, this is the first time I got an A. Ah yes, I guess other people are like me this time. After all, they were waiting in the lobby while we investigated, a bit like a passive game.”
So she and Geng Qinghe are the only ones above Grade A this time?
“Are there any rewards for the evaluation level?” Lin You asked.
Before playing the game, she had studied the gameplay of different professions, and she really didn’t pay attention to this.
“S can take three hundred points of experience, A is one hundred and five, and then it decreases below B…” Geng Qinghe said, “Besides this, isn’t there a progress bar in the lower-left corner of the screen?”
“Yes, I see it.”
“If you accumulate ten points, you can draw a prop related to your job. S can get two points at a time, and A gets one point.”
Lin You glanced at the progress bar and had already piled four points.
If it was S every time, then were three levels still missing?
“Do you still play cooperative mode?” Geng Qinghe from the communication side was eager to get back to playing. “Don’t ignore me, will you take me with you?”
“No, I’ll wait until my friend gets on later.” Lin You answered.
“We had an appointment together, but my helmet arrived one day late, and she had to practice in the daytime again, so—”
Slaps always come so unexpectedly.
She looked at the online reminder of the friend she mentioned that popped up in the lower right corner and was silent for a few seconds.
This guy didn’t fire her boss.
“Do you want to form a team?” Lin You changed her words decisively.
Geng Qinghe: “Okay!”
The system prompted Geng Qinghe to join the team, and the invitation to that friend also appeared in seconds. Lin You reached out and clicked on “cooperation mode” again. This time it took a little longer, but it wasn’t too long.
YOU ARE ABOUT TO ENTER THE B-LEVEL DUNGEON “HIDE AND SEEK”—COUNTDOWN, TEN, NINE, EIGHT, SEVEN…
As soon as she opened her eyes, Lin You suddenly sat up from the bed.
She recalled what she had just heard.
This is a B-level? Did they skip a level?
The public beta had only been out for a few days. She heard that the highest of others is the B-level, and no one cared about A or even S. She just jumped to this level…Could it be that she jumped after two S evaluations?
Lin You looked around, holding on to the rigid bed.
Unlike the last time in the car, she appeared to be in a cheap apartment. It was small enough to hold the daily necessities for a single person. There were two suitcases in the corner, one large and one small. Her role should be that she just moved here.
She went up to the window and looked out.
There were no tall buildings, no traffic. This was a small town. Although it was not lively, it was well organized. The window was facing a telephone pole, and three or four pieces of paper were randomly pasted on it.
Each piece of paper had a photo of a different child, with dense footnotes beside it.
Looking at the enlarged words, Lin You squinted.
She closed the window and planned to go downstairs to see what was written on them. As she passed by the table, she accidentally knocked the vase on the table.
Fortunately, Lin You quickly caught it. The vase had obviously been set for a while, and her hands were covered with dust. She clapped her hands in disgust and was about to put the vase back when she suddenly saw a sheet of paper folded underneath.
Lin You was stunned and quickly took out the note.
The edges and corners of the paper were damaged, and she had to be careful not to break it when she unfolded it. The handwriting on it looked like a man’s, and a sentence was written in a mess—
DON’T LET HIM FIND YOU.
