I heard that I’m super fierce - Chapter 130
Translator: NovelMultiverse | Editor: NovelMultiverse
The sky above the city was vast, but the light was dimming at a speed visible to the naked eye.
Night was approaching.
Those ghosts that were wandering in the street became clearer as if they were gradually condensing entities. It was not difficult to imagine what they would look like after a while.
But Lin You didn’t know if it was her illusion. She felt that where she went, there were fewer ghosts, and only a few of them were still wandering slowly on the stone floor. But even if there were two or three sparse shadows, once she walked closer, they would flee to the shadows as if trying to merge with them.
“Don’t tell me,” Lin You thought out, “they are avoiding me.”
Skull: “…What do you think?”
There will probably be no more people staring at these ghost shadows, just like diners staring at the cooked duck, exuding the energy of “I’m planning what to do to you,” almost written directly on her face. Those who were hiding from her hid from everyone else.
“Do you think I want to get a bug trap or something?”
This person became more and more whimsical, and suddenly clapped her hands, “When the time comes, we can catch one and then plan how to convince it.”
Before she finished her words, a ghost on the road gave a low, indistinct scream in horror and shame, and went straight into the grass.
Lin You: “…”
What was the level of scaring the kid away in one sentence?
“It’s over,” she took a breath, “According to this position, will I be playing hide-and-seek in this instance?”
“If you don’t restrain yourself, little girl, it’s very likely.”
The skull said dryly.
“Or you can go to places that are haunted at first sight. It is easier to find them.”
Lin You: “…Really?”
She began to think seriously about where to look according to the layout of the city to be the most efficient, but at the same time, she couldn’t help but be a little skeptical. In this situation, when she arrived at the so-called haunted spot, the ghosts there ran away without a trace.
Could it be that some players were hearing about her deeds of catching ghosts and killing ghosts, and it spread word of mouth among these ghosts?
Worse, if these ghosts were there at dusk, but she just can’t see their existence, they have witnessed the mighty journey that can scare Nure-onna back into the water, and then—
After entering this instance, Lin You felt chills for the first time.
If this was the case, what would she do for the nocturnal ghosts?
“Right,” she paused, “Why do I think you have something to say?”
Getting along for so long, even if the other party was just a big bone, they cultivated some tacit understanding. Lin You actually saw a bit of hesitation and desire from the action of opening and closing his mouth.
The tone of the skull sounded like it was unsure of itself, “It’s just a weird feeling.”
What Lin You remembered for the first time was what it said in the instance of “A Stranger” last time, “It’s the same as it was with Yog-Sothoth that time?”
The “strange feeling” in its mouth was probably from the interaction between it and its own body. It was in a certain room of the church that they found the remaining bones.
“That’s not right,” the Skull was speechless, “Let’s look at it again.”
None of the parties had a final word, and Lin You had to tilt her head noncommittal. At this time, she seemed to have caught a trace on the tree trunk from this angle, and her pupils shrank suddenly.
Moving forward, she tried to see the scratch clearly. The light at this time was already very dim, and every street lamp was separated by a very long distance. The bark of the tree that was between the two street lamps was so rough that Lin You had to squint her eyes. After several careful inspections, she realized that someone might have held a stone to draw on it.
…Who is it?
Lin You walked back and forth quickly, and found that the scratches had been left on the tree in front. She touched the bark with her finger and noticed that there was still some moist sap on it—the nick was fresh, and apparently someone had just done it not long ago.
The skull sighed, “I think it is from our side.”
Lin You: “Probably.”
The biggest disadvantage of the ghost side to the human side was that the latter were mostly placed together, but the difference between the enchantment area in the north, south, east, and west.
And they, like Lin You, were scattered in the corners of the city. The city area covered a large area, and even if two hundred people came in, they were hard to come across.
Not to mention that she had always been wandering around the human base camp. As the saying goes, two fists are no match for four hands. Besides, there were still dozens of people. With the exception of Lin You, no one without a lot of props on hand would come over.
This scratch must have been left by someone among them, in order to secretly meet—after all, only ghost players who have nowhere to go were still strolling outside at this time. Lin You wondered if she should go to see them and exchange the information.
She closely observed four or five trees and followed the nicks on their bark for a while. But at the next corner, there were no traces on the tree trunk. Lin You thought about it and felt something was wrong, so she went into the nearest alley.
The alley was quite deep, and it got darker as she walked in. Lin You felt nothing, but before she took a few steps, she heard someone shout out in surprise and joy: “Sister You—!”
Lin You: “…”
Okay, she knew who it was.
Geng Qinghe’s current tone was the same as when he saw his relatives, “I didn’t expect it to be you!”
“I want to ask you about this,” Lin Youle said, “I feel like you didn’t know how to do it before. Why are you still using this method now?”
It was better to say that he will scare himself all the time, and then he won’t have the guts to do so.[Read this novel and other amazing translated novels from the original source at the “Novel Multiverse dot com” website @ novelmultiverse.com]
Geng Qinghe coughed and scratched his head, “I’m learning, I’m learning, I’m learning. Sister You, you did that in the forest of the black goat before. You have to take some risks to find your teammates.”
Didn’t she just find him?
“Hey, but this street is really scary,” he said again, “There are ghosts everywhere, if they hadn’t formed yet—”
He didn’t say they were not forming anymore, he just shrank in the dark for so long, watching them go his side back and forth, and now he still had a little leg weakness.
Lin You who saw more ghosts along the way than she could count on two hands: “…”
“Also, when I first started walking this way…”
As if remembering something, Geng Qinghe couldn’t help but shudder.
“There was a bus sign just over there.”
“As soon as I passed by, I felt a cool breeze. It was a bus with passengers sitting by the window. But all of them had their heads down, and their faces were as white as a piece of paper. They weren’t like living people at all—”
He fell silent suddenly.
“Sister, Sister You,” Geng Qinghe was a little nervous, “Why do you think of me that way?”
Lin You looked at him as if looking at an undiscovered treasure.
“Nothing.” She decided to soothe the other person first, and simply patted the other person on the shoulder.
She didn’t expect her teammates to have this kind of use before.
“Come on,” Lin You whispered, “Do me a favor.”
The cold wind was rustling.
Standing alone by the bus stop sign he told her about, Geng Qinghe shivered uncontrollably.
Knowing that what he was waiting for was a ghost bus, he swallowed, took deep breaths one after another, and kept puffing himself up—it’s okay. Anyway, Sister You is standing behind him. Besides, this was also to win the game. This risk was nothing.
…It would be amazing if they did!!!
But in any case, he stood beside the bus stop sign and didn’t move. Lin You, who was hiding outside the two walls, had been observing the movement there, and he was shiveringly clutching the bus stop sign.
“…The young man is quite courageous,” the skull said after holding back for a long time.
In the end, he couldn’t help saying more: “I don’t know what car we will be waiting for.”
Lin You said “Yeah.”
“Look at the sign, bus 375.” she said.
“An urban legend at the end of the last century,” Lin You said in a low voice, “said that a young man took the last bux of this line, and there was an old lady sitting behind him. After a few more passengers came up, the old lady suddenly scolded him for stealing her wallet and dragged him out of the bus. After getting off the bus, she told him that she saw those passengers didn’t have legs. The next day, the police found the bus in a reservoir, and blood was in the fuel tank instead of gasoline.”
It is said that the lonely ghost relies on this to find a substitute and return to the underworld to reincarnate. Whether it was true or false in reality, it was obviously true in this instance.
“However, it should be different from the story.” According to Geng Qinghe’s statement, none of the people in this bus were living. “Anyway, you’ll know when you see it.”
The skull couldn’t help muttering: “What do we have to wait for…”
“Is it this?” She smiled, “It’s coming.”
Sure enough, it was as Geng Qinghe said.
Even if it was so far apart, the passengers with their heads down by the window can be seen. All their faces were lifeless and pale. The bus stopped silently beside the bus stop sign, and with a soft deflation sound, the door opened in front of the only waiting passenger.
Geng Qinghe felt faint.
But after experiencing so many instances, his courage has grown a lot, and he gritted his teeth and stepped directly on the steps.
When he got into the car, Geng Qinghe’s calves weakened when he saw the wild ghosts in the bus, and he had a scream in his throat.
Seeing that he stood still on the steps, the driver wouldn’t let the human being that entered the door escape. He was afraid that he would change his mind, so he had to press the button to close the door—
The door did not move.
One hand pressed the side of the door.
A smiling female voice rang out, “There are still people getting on the bus.”
Lin You did not guess wrong for those two reasons.
Whether it was the act of taking people to contain Yure-onna at dusk, or stuffing pepper in their mouth, or electrocuting Sadako or turning ghosts into livestock in the blink of an eye, it had already quietly spread among the ghosts wandering in this city.
They were better at delivering messages than humans, and they were even more clear about their looks.
At this moment, seeing her face, the driver was horrified and tried to turn the steering wheel directly.
But it was too late—he didn’t even move.
The pale little boy squatted on the steering wheel. He held his arms and silently looked at the frightened driver in front of him.
Saeki Toshio opened his mouth, and a slender cat cry echoed in everyone’s—no, it was in every ghost’s ear.
Seeing that there was no hope of driving, a passenger sitting in the front seat jumped up and knocked Geng Qinghe away with his shoulder!
The latter staggered and saw this guy daring to rush directly to the door.
Lin You didn’t even bother, looking at him as he brushed his side.
The passenger’s flight ended with a pair of hands protruding from the adjacent wall that held his head.
Ten fingers clasped his face firmly, and Kayako’s face dripping with black blood protruded little by little over the top of the ghost’s head.
There was still a “ge” bubble in her throat, and her hands slammed down—
Before the ghost could say a word, he was dragged and drowned directly into a pool of black stains spreading on the ground.
On the bus, the ghosts were silent.
“Okay,” Lin You said with a smile, “Is there anyone else who wants to run?”[Read this novel and other amazing translated novels from the original source at the “Novel Multiverse dot com” website @ novelmultiverse.com]
