I heard that I’m super fierce - Chapter 19

It happened in a flash.
When Lin You opened her eyes again, there was no shadow under the tree.
It seemed like she had hallucinated Slenderman standing there and his substantial gaze, but she knew that the other party had found the door.
It was quick enough.
If he could be replaced with someone else, she may have panicked at this moment. Lin You stared at the window for a while. After she didn’t see anything, she closed the window decisively and tightened the latch.
Since Slenderman was coming here so quickly, the situation was imminent. Lin You’s thought quickly. She was unsure whether she should tell the other two of the situation and finally decided to take action directly.
She grabbed the tie in the pit.
She didn’t look at it carefully before, and now she could see it clearly when she got it in her hands. Lin You twirled the wet tie with her fingertips. It was soft and delicate, but after drying, it would flutter down.
It was like dirt.
She turned it over and barely recognized a dim and black fingerprint.
After thinking for half a minute, Lin You carried the tie and went straight into the bathroom.
“Don’t stick your head out and look around, I’ll let you see.” Emily in the mirror glanced around and looked out the door and was secretly disappointed that she saw nothing. When she saw her come over, she was scared and withdrew her neck. Lin You confidently put the tie-down in front of her, “Do you know this tie?”
Emily looked straight ahead, “This is—”
“Hey, calm down.”
Seeing her eyes rolling again, Lin You smiled and narrowed her eyes.
“Do you really think I still don’t understand anything?” she said, “Don’t even think about fooling me and reporting me in secret, you know the consequences.”
As she said this, she also glanced intently at the claw hammer that was placed beside her. Obviously, if Emily really did this, it would not be as simple as flipping it over and nailing it to the wall this time.
Devil!! This person is a living devil!!
“I know you are working for him.” Lin You said: “Looking at your appearance just now if you don’t explain this tie…”
What she said was not alright!
“I really don’t know what’s going on,” Emily confessed hurriedly, knowing that she could really do it, “I only know that he has been looking for it because Henry doesn’t remember where he buried his tie in the forest—”
Lin You stopped short, “You mean Henry?”
The boy who drew a picture of him with Slenderman?
“I haven’t asked you yet,” Lin You said. “Where are the missing children, such as Henry?”
Although she thought it couldn’t be good.
“They all became his agents,” Emily whispered.
“I don’t know about anyone else. Henry looked for this tie in the forest where he disappeared.”
She was a little vague, but Lin You got the gist of it.
“Youyou,” Jian Mingjia knocked on the door outside. She hadn’t locked the door, and the door opened as soon as she twisted the handle. “I brought things up, let’s—eh?!”
She stared at the empty room for a moment and then realized that she should take a look at the bathroom, and her heart jumped in her throat.
“You scared me…” She was still shocked, “I didn’t know what happened to you.”
“What did I do?” Lin You asked with a smile, and then relaxed, “But that’s right, there is something wrong. Sit down and listen to me.”
She described what she saw in front of the window in a few words.
“…Fuck,” Geng Qinghe scowled, “This is too fast…”
“Who said it isn’t true.” Jian Mingjia nudged him with an elbow, then looked at Lin You, “But that’s not the point—just now, what did you ask the little girl about with your tie?”
Lin You took a deep breath.
“Let’s start from the beginning,” she said, “With the reason why Miller was targeted.”
“I think he might not have attracted the attention of Slenderman when he came to this town to investigate…until he found this by chance in the forest where Henry had disappeared.”
Lin You nodded the tie on the table.
“Emily said Slenderman was always looking for it, so Henry, who became an agent, was also wandering there.”[Read this novel and other amazing translated novels from the original source at the “Novel Multiverse dot com” website @ novelmultiverse.com]
“So you mean…” Geng Qinghe understood what she meant. “Henry found out that someone had found the tie they were looking for, and told Slenderman about it, and then Slenderman would stare at Miller?”
“Well, and Henry attacked him most of the time.”
Lin You picked up the tie, revealing the bloody fingerprints on it.
“But the tie was not snatched, and the person escaped. Miller also guessed that this thing was very important. If he didn’t know how to deal with it, he secretly hid it under the bed. After being trapped in the factory and desperate, it became his last hope.”
“So what the hell is this?” Jian Mingjia leaned over and looked, “Ontology? Holy relic?”
“It’s not ontology,” Lin You said seriously, “But maybe it really is a kind of medium.”
“—Okay, let’s not talk, remember why we went to Henry’s house?” she asked.
Geng Qinghe: “Because he was the first to disappear.”
They unexpectedly determined the identity of the BOSS.
“One more thing: according to Emily, Henry’s tie was buried in the forest to touch so much soil. Of course, it should be his life. After death, I’m afraid that he would forget who he was just like Emily. Naturally, he wouldn’t remember where he put it.”
“So, what does this tie do and where did it come from…?”
Lin You smiled.
“If Henry is the beginning of everything, of course, someone knows better than us.”
According to Geng Qinghe, to even go outside when Slenderman was all around was flirting with death.
But there was no other way.
He thought bitterly.
Did they really need to go!
All the way there, he was suspiciously observing whether there was a faceless man looking at them at the corner of the street. Even Lin You when shook his shoulder he jumped three feet into the air.
“What are you afraid of? In this weather, entering the forest will kill you, and it is not necessarily a long walk in the town.”
She said, “Are we here?”
They had been here once in the morning.
—Henry Davis’s house.
Soon after the doorbell rang, the blond Mrs. Davis opened the door for them again.
She looked a little puzzled, “Why are you back—”
Without waiting for her to finish this time, Lin You took out the tie from her backpack and shook it in front of her counterpart, “Have you seen this?”
The moment she saw what was in her hand, Mrs. Davis’s face turned pale.
This was better than anything else.
Upon seeing this, Lin You looked at the other two and continued: “Don’t worry, we haven’t told others, but the conditions are that you tell us what you know.”
Unlike the calmness this morning, Mrs. Davis was silent this time and let her in, her fingers gripping her skirt tightly, her face panicked.
Even the warm flames of the fireplace in the living room couldn’t add a trace of temperature to her. She bit her pale lips, even biting deep teeth marks, and she kept torturing them.
“It seems that you know where it’s from.” Lin You said.
“No, no,” Mrs. Davis quickly denied, avoiding their sight. “I don’t know.”
“His father didn’t know where it came from before—he passed away a long time ago—I can’t figure out what Henry did with it after he took it out of the basement, but the guy showed up because of it.”
“Henry kept it from me at first. He said he had a good time with that guy, but then I became scared, so I asked him to throw it away. But the guy didn’t give up. He took Henry out of town and the others…”
“So,” Geng Qinghe said, “When we came in the morning, you were anxious to take out those paintings, wanting us to treat Henry as a simple victim.”
Now, thinking about her attitude at the time, she was still normal, but knowing these concealed things, no matter how normal she was, she became abnormal.
“How could I tell them that everything was caused by Henry?” Mrs. Davis said blankly.
Her gaze was fixed on the floor-to-ceiling window opposite, but within a few seconds, she suddenly burst out with a terrible scream.
The three of them were shocked and turned their heads together. Through the floor-to-ceiling windows, standing in the courtyard was an inhuman figure that they were all familiar with.
Slenderman stood under a curtain of torrential rain, just looking at them.
And then the image in front of them was destroyed, as the glass of the floor-to-ceiling windows shattered to the ground.
The tentacles behind him that he used to break the glass stretched out suddenly, and Mrs. Davis let out another sharper scream. She rolled from the sofa to the carpet, her eyes turned straight up, almost all the way back and angry.
Accompanied by the twisting and frictional sound of stepping on the glass shards on the floor, Slenderman walked into the room step by step. His contourless eyes swept across the people in the living room from Mrs. Davis, as if admiring their horrified expressions.
When it was too late, one of the stretched tentacles pulled up and quickly pierced towards the person closest to him.
Jian Mingjia was going to die.
She just rolled to the side with a sharp spirit, but there were no obstacles between her and the other party. The next blow followed closely, knowing that she would not be able to dodge this time. Jian Mingjia reflexively closed her eyes—
There was no pain through her throat, no weightlessness of forced transmission. Jian Mingjia opened her eyes blankly.
“Don’t move.” She heard a familiar voice say.
The tentacles stopped just a few feet away from her throat, and he didn’t stick them out an inch further. Looking up, she could see Slenderman’s blank face, and she could somehow almost see the black air rising off of it from his anger.
“Yes, that’s it.”
By the fireplace not far away, Lin You, who rushed straight towards it, saw that the situation was deadlocked, and was calmly leaning on the ground. The tie she was carrying was only inches from the tongue of the flames.
“Don’t move,” she shook the thing in her hand again, and said with a smile, “I dare you to do it, or I’ll kill the hostage.”[Read this novel and other amazing translated novels from the original source at the “Novel Multiverse dot com” website @ novelmultiverse.com]
