I heard that I’m super fierce - Chapter 25
Translator: NovelMultiverse | Editor: NovelMultiverse
The fall sounded painful.
Taking advantage of this time, Lin You rushed out of the custodial stall where she was. She looked back at the next door, and the man fell heavily on the toilet after being stabbed.
The twisted inhuman creature didn’t have much weight. This fall didn’t break the toilet, but the stall door that was kicked by him was knocked shut by his head again.
She heard a heavy gasp from behind the door. The moment Lin You ran across to the next stall, the thrown wooden door flew over and hit the opposite wall with its latch.
Lin You looked at the wooden door and the cracked tiles that were barely visible before.
…If it was one second later, she would probably be the one on the wall.
The man walked out slowly.
Stabbing him caught him off guard, but obviously, it had little effect except for a little tremor in his knee. He still had the weird smile with stretched veins on his face, and when he turned his head to look at Lin You, his neck made a toothy “click.”
The axe pulled in his hand dragged on the ground, trailing blood.
This obviously came from the girl with burgundy curly hair who was out at the beginning.
He grinned again and raised his hand and waved his axe to chop over there. At the same time, Lin You quickly grabbed the empty bucket used to draw water from the corner of the wall.
Directly raining down on him!
She threw it accurately, and the bucket firmly covered the murderer’s head. The latter suddenly lost his vision and was screaming frantically and grabbing it to get it off.
“Didn’t I tell you that when I was a kid, the owner of the ring toss game stall in the park avoided me?”
Lin You raised her eyebrows and grasped the handle decisively.
Now it was not suitable to carry this brute force, so she had to think of something else.
“See you later, I’ll come to play with you later.”
The moment she rushed out and closed the door easily, she heard the sound of the plastic tearing and being smashed to the ground.
Lin You didn’t even stop to catch her breath. She quickly observed the downward direction and ran towards the gate marked No. 5 without looking back. She went down half the stairs and noticed the sound of a blunt object rubbing against the ground from above, and immediately stopped vigilantly.
The man who was dragging the axe to look for her did not hear any movement and was far away.
He didn’t chase her this time.
She stepped forward again, all the way down to the platform where the other party had arrived at the beginning.
This platform was a bit more spacious than the one where the player got off, and the others were no different.
The whole Kisaragi station looked very shabby. Clocks were hung on the walls, and the glass was full of weathered scratches. The dirty bulb was shaking, and swaying hard like the wind could blow it down.
Lin You took a closer look.
She really told her to find it.
Under the dim light, she picked up a newspaper on the yellow line at the edge of the platform and caught a glimpse of the bold and enlarged headline.
Seeing this word, Lin You’s pupils shrank, and she skimmed the text below.
It was a front-page news report. It said something to the effect of, there have recently been several people in the city with abnormal behaviors. After research, they got the same mysterious disease.
The new type of disease was named “Acute Muscle Tissue Sclerosis.” Infected people will become deformed, lose their minds, become violent and bloodthirsty, and experience strong aggression.
These patients were also called “SMILE” because of the weird and twisted smiles on their faces.
It seemed that one of them was transported to Kisaragi Station.
“The coverage of this game is really wide…” Lin You muttered, “What story is this again?”
Even she hadn’t heard of it.
But fortunately, there were ready clues that explained the origin of the so-called code name that the little girl said.
“Ordinary knives or guns cannot really harm ‘SMILE’ unless it is a special weapon developed for them…”
Lin You muttered the last few words and fell silent.
…Where can she go to make special weapons?
Even at this station, the scope was huge, and looking blindly for this girl’s right arm was like looking for a needle in a haystack.
In any case, it seemed that she had to go back again.
But Lin You looked at the stretch of train tracks and suddenly her heart jumped.
Before, there was a three-minute time limit, and now she wanted to see if she could surpass people on this track.[Read this novel and other amazing translated novels from the original source at the “Novel Multiverse dot com” website @ novelmultiverse.com]
The rules of the game were there, and she didn’t feel like she could leave along the track.
But the platform that can be seen not far away was separated from here by a few railroad tracks. After that, if there were groups of ghosts upstairs as there were now, the underground may occasionally serve as a safe passage.
Lin You picked up a small stone and threw it lightly on the rails.
There was wind whistling in front of her, and she took a step back reflexively.
She didn’t know if it was because there were no passengers on the car, but a tram drove past in front of her suddenly, and it was so quiet that it was almost silent.
Lin You saw it with her own eyes this time, and the cab at the front of the car was also empty.
This was a series of genuine ghost trams.
Apparently, she thought, it was not allowed to pass on the railroad tracks, and even if there was a little contact, a tram will come—if someone really wanted to do this, it would only end up disappearing in the wheels of an empty tram.
She sighed a little regretfully, and after seeing that there was nothing worth taking away, she stepped onto the stairs.
The open underground passage was divided into east and west zones, the odd-numbered entrances were in the east zone, and the even-numbered entrances were in the west zone.
There were four rows of tall storage cabinets in the central passage connecting the two districts. Just as Lin You wanted to go through and take a look at the west district, she heard another dull sound of a dragging axe.
She immediately hid behind a row of cabinets.
Just a few meters away, Lin You heard “SMILE” walking behind her, and suddenly felt something was wrong.
…There were others!
The moment she turned her head suddenly, the other party also spoke in a low voice.
Lin You: “…”
Who was this person?
She looked up and down with some confusion, feeling that the other person was a bit familiar.
It took four or five seconds before it finally came to mind—she had seen this face when she first got out of the elevator. There was no way, the appearance was really not very recognizable. Although he was pretty good-looking, it belonged to the one that was unrecognizable in a crowd.
“My name is Xu Yan.” When the murderer left, he introduced himself in relief, “Were you scared just now?”
…No, no, she was not scared.
She was even wondering how the guy passed her.
Lin You answered vaguely: “Lin You.” She said, “You didn’t go up?”
“I just came down,” Xu Yan explained.
“The upper floor is a very big shopping mall, but we tried it, and the door couldn’t get open, probably because it was blocked by air. Nine people looking for it must be enough, so I volunteered to come back and see if there were any other clues to the right hand here.”
Hearing this, Lin You looked at him more.
“Speaking of it, we saw you were gone,” Xu Yan was unavoidably embarrassed when he said this, “I thought you were…”
Lin You glanced at him.
“As you can see, I’m alive and well.” She didn’t say much and just spread her hands. “It just so happens that I wanted to look for it carefully. Since it’s all at this level, it’s better to divide labor more efficiently.”
She was in charge of the Eastern District and Xu Yan was in charge of the Western District.
The difficulty was in investigating while also avoiding the man. Apart from the five entrances and exits in the East District, there were also two stores on the far side—a station convenience store and a beverage store.
There were also several vending machines near the entrance and exit. When Lin You passed by, she saw a dazzling array of samples inside, knowing the difference between going this way and being caught unprepared.
There must be some hints that haven’t been caught–
Lin You was stunned by the bell.
She rushed to look at the clock on the wall of the passage—twenty minutes had passed since she was entangled by the murderer.
“Please pay attention—“ the little girl’s sweet voice echoed on the radio again.
“The Slit-mouthed Woman appeared at the third entrance.”
…The Eastern District where she is now.
A young woman in a trench coat stepped off of the stairs.
She wore a mask, and her face and brows were outstanding. But thinking about what was under the mask, the appreciation was gone.
The well-known urban legend says a beautiful woman covered her split-mouth with a mask. She would stop the kids after school on the street and ask them if she was beautiful.
If the answer was “you are beautiful,” she would take off the mask and ask again. If she got a negative answer this time, the Slit-mouthed Woman would use the huge scissors she carried to kill the opponent; if it was affirmative, she would cut the sides of the child’s mouth to make them as beautiful as herself.
Lin You originally wanted to repeat the old tricks. She hid behind the vending machine while the other party left, and went down to the platform to see if there were any new clues.
But after seeing the half-arm length scissors hanging from the woman’s waist, she changed her mind.
Maybe… this one can choose to start first.
“Go,” she said softly.
Hearing this order, the hand summoned from the picture book began to creep forward quietly.
It hid in the shadow of the bench on the side, keeping pace with the slit-mouthed woman, and then silently put out its finger.
—Suddenly it leaped!
With a clear tearing sound, the severed hand yanked the things to the ground forcefully, then dragged the scissors that were too big for its size, twisted them, and ran away.
Slit-mouthed Woman: “…?!”
She stared after her running scissors in disbelief and turned around to chase them desperately.
The Slit-mouthed Woman was extremely fast. Even though it took the lead, the severed hand that only relied on the movement of the fingers could not escape her. Just before it was about to be snatched away, it flicked hard and the big scissors slid straight on the ground.
Lin You picked up the scissors that had slipped to her feet, turned, and rushed down the stairs.
The Slit-mouthed Woman squeezed a voice from her teeth angrily, “…Return my things!”
She chased behind Lin You in a flash.
Then, at this moment—
Lin You threw forward hard, and the scissors drew a perfect arc in the air.
The Slit-mouthed Woman was stunned.
The next second it landed on the rails, and as if it had touched some mechanism, a tram quietly passed by.
Crushing the scissors until there was no residue left.[Read this novel and other amazing translated novels from the original source at the “Novel Multiverse dot com” website @ novelmultiverse.com]
