I heard that I’m super fierce - Chapter 20
Translator: NovelMultiverse | Editor: NovelMultiverse
There are always people who are born to be the nemesis of ghosts.
—The kind of an angry ghost who does not pay for his life.
Geng Qinghe sweated coldly, staring at the stalemate in front of him without blinking. Then he looked at Slenderman’s dark face, which made him more sure of his thoughts.
He…he’ll take care of the atmosphere for the time being, and won’t mess around.
The tie in Lin You’s hand still slipped right above the flame. If she let it go, it would fall into the fire. On the opposite side, the tentacles were still hanging there motionless, but if he wanted to, he could pierce through the heart of the person next to him.
“This way,” Lin You proposed calmly, “I will give you this thing, and you will let her go to exchange it?”
Slenderman stared at her and nodded slightly.
So they agreed. Lin You did not get up right away, but she picked up a log from the fireplace that was not too hot and raised it to the level of the tie.
As she walked over, she made a signal to Jian Mingjia.
Years of mutual understanding had been built. Jian Mingjia then looked away.
Lin You walked around and then stood still. When Slenderman raised his arm at knee-length, she passed the crumpled tie over.
Changes only happen in an instant.
—Just a second before the other’s slender fingers were about to reach over, she suddenly retracted her hand, letting him grasp at air.
Lin You threw away the firewood with her other hand and slammed Jian Mingjia hard. The latter had been mentally prepared and took advantage of the opportunity to turn over and escape the fire on the carpet caused by firewood.
At this moment, with the sound of the bursting of an eardrum, the floor where she was before was smashed by the tentacles. If she didn’t get out of it in time, she would be the one who was broken.
Lin You looked at the broken wooden floor coldly, and she knew how such a level of boss could not make a good deal.
Not to mention, Slenderman, whose character was only interested in evil, almost always planned was to destroy them as soon as they get something.
The hopeful Slenderman never expected that he would be made a fool by a little girl. He—
Seeing the tentacles attacking frantically, Jian Mingjia rushed to dodge them. While dodging them, Lin You shouted: “Grab them!”
Geng Qinghe, who had been staying aside, didn’t dare to act rashly. He immediately got the direction when he heard this. He gritted his teeth cruelly and hugged the tentacles that were smashing down at him.
He was the farthest away, and only one tentacle was attacking him at this moment—the others were so furious that they slammed straight to the other two—Geng Qinghe was just able to control it.
Even ignoring the bloodstains on his face and arms, he was still anxious, and grabbed the thudding tentacles and tied them around the banister.
Even if the fire spread over, Geng Qinghe did not dare to move half a step, pressing on the tentacles with his entire weight. No matter how hard it struggled, he couldn’t get rid of it.
In this way, it was not easy for Slenderman to escape.
Lin You suddenly spoke.
Before she finished speaking, all the black misty tentacles stopped at once, and Slenderman turned his head, staring at the necktie that was shaking from the palm of her hand.
“Did you forget that this was still in my hands?”
“Don’t tell me you don’t see that we are more dominant now,” Lin You said with a smile, “Anyway, the worst ending is where I kill you and myself, how about we talk about it?”
Mrs. Davis, who was ignored by everyone, had already escaped through the broken French door and was crying. The flame burned the entire carpet and then lit the furniture. In the hot wave, you could hear the small-town police station sounding the siren because of the absurd event here.
Even if he could really escape, his strength had taken a blow, and he couldn’t fight against the entire town.
“This time it’s a serious deal.”
Lin You was stern.
“I will give it back to you,” she said, “Follow me.”
“What’s the meaning of just staying in a palm-sized place? It’s much more interesting outside than here, at least you can believe me on that—Ah, yes, there are many other ghosts, aren’t you interested?”
Slenderman was silent as long as she threatened her with her tie, and she was quiet for a while until a gap cracked open on that blank face again.
The gap expanded more and more, spreading into a twisted arc.
Jian Mingjia: “…What does this mean?”
Lin You said “Oh.”
“I guess…” she said, “He wants to see them have bad luck.”
CONGRATULATIONS, THE ENTIRE PLOT OF THE B-LEVEL INSTANCE “HIDE AND SEEK” IS COMPLETED.
YOUR PERFORMANCE IN THIS COPY IS JUDGED AS — S.
After leaving the instance and returning to the main interface, Lin You, as the leader of the team, directly turned on the team’s voice chat function, and Geng Qinghe’s voice came from the other side of the screen.[Read this novel and other amazing translated novels from the original source at the “Novel Multiverse dot com” website @ novelmultiverse.com]
“I am A again this time,” he said, “How about you?”
“Oh, me too.”
Jian Mingjia replied: “Don’t ask the other one. We are both A, so she must have gotten S.”
Lin You: “…”
“No, no, this is not important to me,” she said solemnly, “The point is that I am also a person with an SR card now! SR!”
In real life! The first one! SR card!
CARD NUMBER: 015
NOTE: NO ONE KNOWS WHERE HE COMES FROM. SUMMONED BY THE TIE LEFT FROM THE LAST TIME AT PRAIA, THE TOKEN BEARS PART OF THE POWER. BECAUSE IT HAS BEEN BURIED IN THE SOIL FOR ALMOST A YEAR, AFTER TAKING BACK THE DIRTY TIE, IT IS UNHYGIENIC. PS. THERE ARE MANY SUITS THAT ARE EXACTLY THE SAME. IN ADDITION, AFTER THE INCIDENT, IT NOW HATES BOWS VERY MUCH.
Lin You: “………………”
Seeing the last sentence, as one of the principal culprits, she sighed with a guilty conscience.
“Slenderman is SR.” Jian Mingjia said thoughtfully, “Can you go higher than that? What will it be, SSR?”
Geng Qinghe: “…I can’t imagine what hell level SSR is.”
No, think about it this way, isn’t the guy who can get the SSR card is even scarier???
“Youyou, your career is really interesting.” Jian Mingjia sighed: “Look at me, I’m a doctor, it’s useless. Just now I was thinking if I could try to heal Geng’s bruises, but he actually passed the level easily.”
“It’s okay,” Lin You soothed, “This instance has not been tried completely, so I will use it next time if it is not complete.”
Jian Mingjia: “…”
Although it sounded comforting, what’s the matter with the deja vu?! [FLAG]
“Ah yes,” Lin You said, “Speaking of which, what do you want to do now? I’m home alone, so it doesn’t matter to me. Should we continue or should we leave?”
“I want to continue!”
Jian Mingjia gritted her teeth.
“It’s really depressing to resign, so of course I have to choose to play games at this time.”
Geng Qinghe: “I’m always free…”
“Understood.” Lin You said. She calculated the time. The official eight hours was estimated to be enough for them to enter the dungeon again, “Then we can queue up again?”
“I don’t care.”
Familiar cooperation mode, familiar prompt sound.
MATCHING IS SUCCESSFUL.
YOU ARE ABOUT TO ENTER THE B-LEVEL DUNGEON “HOUSE OF PUPPETS”—COUNTDOWN: TEN, NINE…
This time it was still a B-level instance. Lin You thought it seemed that just having an S-level was not enough to upgrade. She didn’t know if it will be ranked A after this time.
There was also an S-level instance above, and she couldn’t help but look forward to it.
Maybe she can get SSR there.
There was a soft leather seat under her body, and Lin You blinked. In her gradually clearing vision, the first thing she saw was the steering wheel in front of her—this time she was in the driver’s seat?
“What’s the situation?” Jian Mingjia sat in the co-pilot seat next to her and said blankly, “…Where are we going?”
“I have the directions.”
Lin You picked up the phone next to the dashboard, and it showed that they were less than one kilometer away from the destination, “It seems that it’s another town to go to.”
Geng Qinghe: “Huh?!”
“Then what…” An unfamiliar voice intervened, “Do you know?”
The three of them realized that there was someone else sitting in the car.
It seemed that this was a four-person instance.
“I’m sorry I didn’t notice you,” Lin You said laughing, “Yes, yes, we will play together. What’s your name?”
“My name is Liao Tong.” The strange teammate said, “And you are…?”
After they had introduced their names one by one, Geng Qinghe pulled out a folder next to his seat, which contained a copy of a will and some inheritance documents.
“Sister You,” he changed how he addressed her very consciously, “Your name is on here.”
Lin You: “…Huh?”
She took the transparent folder and saw her name was really on it. The content was about the death of a distant relative who left her all the property under her name, including a house in this town.
It seemed that her role this time was an heiress, and other people played the role of accompanying her.
If the house was haunted, then she as an heiress was the easiest to be targeted.
“Last time it was you,” Jian Mingjia said with sympathy, “This time it’s you again, the chosen one.”
Lin You shrugged—could you blame her?
The stranger obviously misunderstood the object of her sympathy.
“It’s okay, don’t worry.” Liao Tong tried to comfort her: “We’re all here. If the ghost comes over, I will help you figure out a solution.”
Jian Mingjia thought that the ghosts shouldn’t be afraid of her.
“Thanks in advance,” Lin You answered with a smile, “However, we are still some distance from the town. How do we get there?”
“Didn’t you get a driver’s license?” Jian Mingjia asked.
“It’s been three years, so now there is no chance to get started.”
Lin You turned the steering wheel, “It’s not impossible for me to drive, as long as you are not afraid that I will drive the car into a ditch—”
“Let me,” Liao Tong said quickly, “I drive to work!”
After changing their positions, the car finally started slowly.
The location of this small country town was quite isolated, but the road was well built. They drove smoothly all the way into the town, and the destinations were all very ordinary-buildings, only one thing was strange.
Geng Qinghe hesitated: “There is no one in the street?”
From the outskirts of the town to the more lively business districts where they went past shops, they could not see a single person, which made them suspect that they were in a ghost town.
The emptiness was frightening.
Lin You: “…Should we get out of the car and have a look?”
The four-person car came slowly to a halt on the side of the road and Lin You, who was in the back seat, opened the door first.
She walked to the window of a shop in two steps, and the glass was covered with a thin layer of dust. Wiping off the dust, Lin You looked inside.
Sure enough, she couldn’t see anyone there. However, there was a puppet sitting where the cashier would be.
The style of the puppet was very old. The lips were dyed bright red, and its plastic eyes were staring straight ahead. The wooden hands and feet sat stiffly by the cash register, imitating a person.
Under Lin You’s gaze, it turned its head abruptly towards her.
The corners of the carved mouth bent up strangely as if smiling.
Lin You: “!!!”
A new card?![Read this novel and other amazing translated novels from the original source at the “Novel Multiverse dot com” website @ novelmultiverse.com]
