I heard that I’m super fierce - Chapter 17

Hearing the sound of the corpse falling to the ground even made Jian Mingjia feel chills.
His hand slumped weirdly as if he was going to fall apart like this when he ran. It was a miracle that his head was still connected to his body.
When everything was like this, there was naturally no pain. The rotted corpse was struggling to get up from the ground. Accompanied by a sharp buzzing sound, a big mouth turned his head and bit at the two people who tripped him.
Regardless of other things, the three of them reluctantly held him down.
Geng Qinghe hurriedly tied the hands and feet of the rotting corpse with the hemp rope that tripped him. He tried his best—but it was not over yet. Even if it was not the original senior, the power of this agent was quite amazing, and it resisted being tied up with all his might.
“Okay, the physical work is up to you,” Lin You simply let go. She clapped her hands and straightened up, trying to look in the direction of the corpse to see if she could see any signs, “You guys, go for it.”
Geng Qinghe, who just pushed it up with his body, said: “…?????”
He hurriedly avoided the other party’s yellow teeth biting at his wrist, and then he caught up with his own words: “But are we really going to stay here? I feel like soon I won’t be able to hold it anymore!”
“Then wait until you can’t hold it down to say something?” Jian Mingjia had also let go, and now she was raising her flashlight to shine in the eyes and mouth of the corpse, “It’s been about seven days since he died. Fortunately, it’s winter here.”
Geng Qinghe: “…How come even you are so calm?!”
He seemed to be the only one panicking! Let’s agree to scream together!
Jian Mingjia glanced at him.
“I transferred from medicine to my current career, otherwise why would you think you would be a pharmacist,” she said and returned the flashlight to Lin You. “There are lots of anatomy classes—and the teachers are generally kinder than him.”
Of course, only a corpse can calm her down.
All other ghosts politely decline.
“One week, that’s not a long time.”
Lin You was still unsure whether to go back to the place where the corpse was thrashing and turn it over. After listening to Jian Mingjia’s words, she also came over, “A little later than Emily’s disappearance.”
Who is he? You didn’t even have to guess.
At first glance, it was the figure of an adult, and it was also a male. These days, there was only one person missing from the town who met these two conditions—Miller, the person who lived in the apartment before.
But they didn’t expect him to appear in this factory.
“If it’s really a week if it’s dead here,” she said, “Emily may have lied to him.”
The same reason for saving lives was used, which worked better for Miller than for her; after all, he was here to investigate the missing child.
“…Wait,” Jian Mingjia suddenly reacted, “If he really died here, then won’t you die now [FLAG] instead of fly?! To be honest, have you ever thought about how to deal with Slenderman—?“
Lin You: “Uh, ask him if he wants to join my insurance package?”
Jian Mingjia: “………………”
Whatever works for you.
“I just want to ask, do I have to keep holding him?”
Geng Qinghe, who worked silently, said with difficulty: “I’m about to…hey, what’s this?!”
The “Miller” who didn’t seem to be able to see was struggling so hard that he finally turned over and almost broke free from his grasp. What was pressed in front of him was also slammed out and hit Geng Qinghe’s calf hard?
It was not red, but the pain made him gasp.
“Are you okay?” Lin You’s eyes lit up when she saw the thing, “—Take this!”
It didn’t take much effort to subdue Miller again, and their goal this time was even more clear—the camcorder hanging on his chest.
Since Miller was investigating the disappearance before his death, this should be what he used at the time. It might have recorded his entire encounter with Slenderman.
Jian Mingjia and Geng Qinghe respectively held down the shoulders of the rotted corpse. Lin You took the camera off his neck and looked back and forth at the small, palm-sized instrument.
…The lens was cracked.
She felt a little frustrated, and she didn’t know if it was from a fall.
Lin You tried to turn it on. In the dimness, the camera’s screen lit up normally, but the bright red battery symbol in the upper right corner reminded them that there was not much battery left.
“Time is limited,” she muttered, “Let’s see what he recorded…huh?”
Lin You was taken aback.
“No memory card?” Geng Qinghe also glanced at the prompt that popped up.
“Maybe…” The joy of finding the clue sank. Lin You said, “It was taken by Slenderman.”
Think about it, they too have become agents, how there be clues on him.
And just as these words fell, Lin You caught a glimpse of the camera’s screen flashing.
She moved for a while and looked over calmly.
The lens was cracked, and the recorded scenes were also double-exposed, which was not very clear. But the changes now were different. She was clearly holding the camera steadily, but the picture shook more violently and even became distorted, and the sound of electric current sizzled—
It was like something was affecting the magnetic field here.
Lin You suddenly raised her head.
A tall and thin shadow stood silently at the other end of the aisle where they were squatting.
The tie on his neckline was neatly tied, and only the concave outline of his facial features could be seen on his snow-white face. Knee-length hands hung on both sides, and a few black tentacles emerged from behind him.
It was the first time Lin You saw the real body of Slenderman in person, but she instinctively felt how dangerous the other party was.
Was this the performance of looking down on the agent and finally planning to do it by yourself?
The moment he opened his legs, Lin You decisively stuffed the camera into his backpack and whispered in a low voice: “I’m the target, I will lead him away, you go find the memory card!”
Geng Qinghe wanted to say something, but before he could, Jian Mingjia tugged at him.
The front exit was facing two roads. Lin You went to the left, and the two of them turned to the right.
The messy footsteps echoed in the factory tunnel, and Lin You took the time to look back.
It was she who was being chased by Slenderman.
He was not in a hurry, he kept his distance from her. A crooked gap gradually cracked on the face that lacked facial features, and both sides lifted up strangely—as if he was enjoying this cat and mouse game.
When the first door finally appeared in the corridor, Lin You rushed up and squeezed the doorknob.
She secretly cursed. Seeing the boss getting closer and closer, she hurried to the next room.
This time she was unimpeded.
Lin You’s first reaction after entering was to close the door and lock it, and there was no more movement outside the door. She wiped her sweat and turned to look at the place she had broken into.
It looked like this was the warehouse of the factory building. Lin You turned on her flashlight and walked through rows of shelves. The lights dangled, and she shone on a piece of paper on the wall.
In front of her were the factory rules and regulations.
Without waiting for a moment of interest, Lin You moved away from the direction of the flashlight. Suddenly, her heart stopped and she moved closer.
Seeing the subtle bumps coming through from behind on the surface of the paper, she knew that she was right, and tore off the paper.
Turning to the back, the bulge was indeed a few lines of scribbled and powerful words. In order to prevent others from finding it easily, the person who left it hid the information behind this printed paper and reposted it on the wall.
Lin You recognized the handwriting, which was very similar to the note in the apartment.
When you see this, I should be dead.
I think I found a way to end everything, however, I have no chance to implement it.
Although I don’t know who you are, I hope you can end “it”, I hide the method in—
The remaining words were torn off along with the lower-left corner, while the signature was on the right—“D. Miller”.
Lin You: “………………”
The most important clue was gone!
What’s the use of this paper! What’s! The! Use!
She took a deep breath, and finally folded it, and held onto it.
…Maybe if you go further you will find the remaining part, Lin You thought hopelessly.
Passing through the row of shelves again, she suddenly saw light coming through in front of her. Lin You looked at the wide-open door and wondered if it was the exit of the factory. Just as she was about to start exploring the way—
The guy who appeared at the door made her take a step back.
The familiar suit, the familiar red tie, the familiar blank face.
Lin You: “…Hi?”
The lanky ghost had no time to greet the prey, and the gap in his face widened.
The moment the tentacles attacked her, Lin You ran away.
—Why there was no movement outside the door? It turns out he knew that there were two doors from the beginning, so he came directly from the other side!
Lin You panted, recalling where she had been running from the shelves along the way. There was always a row of shelves stuck between her and where Slenderman, which could be called the Qin emperor, was walking. The tentacles rushed into the air time and time again, even teleportation was used to no avail.
Slenderman, who was teasing the prey at first, also gradually lost patience.
He watched her pass through the gap in the next row of shelves, and strangled her neck!
Lin You subconsciously blocked her neck with her hand, but in Slenderman’s eyes, it didn’t matter; the ending was the same.
Just a second before it touched her, there was suddenly some force that made the tentacle turn around.
His shallow sunken eye sockets turned to his arm that had turned into pitch-black tentacles.
Helping the prey to complete the counterattack together was a hand lying on her shoulder, a hand with a smooth cross-section.
At this moment, this hand, once haunted under the bed and now under her command, faced an enemy more than twice as strong as it, and was very contented because of his temporary victory.
Also proudly and provocatively was spread like a “V.”
The tentacle was pulled across the shelf and bypassed the bar.
It tied a beautiful one-sided bow.
