I heard that I’m super fierce - Chapter 27
Translator: NovelMultiverse | Editor: NovelMultiverse
There was a vague grunt from the man’s throat.
He turned a deaf ear to Lin You’s words and was still trying to break free from the grip of his tentacles.
With his head trapped inside and his neck stuck outside the door, he could only slap the rolling door with his hands, and two palm prints protruded from the thin iron plate.
Salivating from the corners of the mouth that couldn’t control his facial expressions, he was avoided by Slenderman as if he was afraid of touching him when he dropped.
Obviously, there were no facial features, but a gesture like disgust was written on his face.
“Don’t even think about running away, and don’t pretend to be stupid—couldn’t you still make a noise before?”
Although his tongue was not very flexible, it stammered very uncomfortably when he spoke.
Lin You hooked the dagger around in her hand. She sat on the high stool that was dragged from the bar with her cheeks in her hands, resting her elbows on her knees, turning her round eyes with interest.
She looked at the man’s back coldly.
“There are two ways in front of you,” she said, “Either I use it on you, or you come with me.”
She was so magnanimous, of course, she gave the other party the right to choose.
As the saying goes, a wise man submits to his circumstances.
Lin You didn’t even care that she was stared at for a long time. She looked at the extra R card in her hand, secretly proud with the intention to add one.
This was just one of the “SMILE” infected people. It was nothing more than a little bit stronger, and invulnerable except for special weapons. On the whole, the strength was average, and it was not out of the ordinary as an R card.
Lin You put away the card and said with a smile, “I will find you if I have something to do in the future.”
Find anyone else but him.
He really didn’t want to come out and listen to other people’s orders. He just wanted to see the bad luck of other guys with his own eyes. He was really tangled.
It sucks, both options were bad.
This time, Lin You heard him coldly snort, and just raised her eyebrows. She saw the other person’s figure disappearing out of thin air in front of her eyes—she wanted to return to the illustrated book.
Thinking of when she used her lucky new skill a few minutes ago, Lin You tried to think again.
Unfortunately this time, no matter how hard she tried, she couldn’t summon anything.
Her original role was to spontaneously summon. The day she dealt with Mary Shaw was considered leisurely, so she paid more attention to it and calculated it with the help of a table— this skill’s cool-down time would be three full hours.
And if you only take out the card and do not use it, the card will disappear and return to the illustrated book after three minutes, and the skill will automatically enter the cool-down time.
It was equivalent to a waste of skills.
Now after the upgrade, there was one more chance to draw cards on this basis. The randomly selected ghost card… Lin You guessed it must be used within these three minutes, otherwise, it would be wasted.
According to her first attempt, the card draw obviously also has a cool-down time.
Although the summon time had been extended from one minute to five minutes, the cool-down time should also be shortened. But Lin You was only promoted before this instance, and she had not had time to experiment for long.
In short, both skills were temporarily unavailable, and she had to rely on herself for a while.
—It didn’t matter.
Lin You thought that it wasn’t like this at the beginning.
After getting rid of the Split-mouthed Woman and “SMILE,” it was about ten minutes before the next group of ghosts arrived.
She had combed over the area around the two stores before, and when she found it, she focused on the counter.
The blockade at the entrance and exit was locked, and Lin You jumped over the convenience store counter. She poked around underneath and found the broken limb of the little girl in a plastic bag under impossible circumstances.
Taking a breath, Lin You straightened up and finally opened the cash drawer of the cash register without any hope.
Her gaze was fixed on the small piece of paper pressed on top of the stack of banknotes.
When Xu Yan returned to the locker separating the two areas, he was surprised to find that someone was already there.
Lin You didn’t talk too much nonsense, and directly showed him what she was holding. “Have you found anything similar?”
It was a piece of paper not as long as a thumb, and the number “2” was written on it slantingly. She had looked all over it by herself, looking at the front and back about ten times, never seeing anything more.[Read this novel and other amazing translated novels from the original source at the “Novel Multiverse dot com” website @ novelmultiverse.com]
Did it represent the order or something else?
There were tear marks on the edges, so there should be more than one thing marked with numbers.
“…No,” Xu Yan was also taken aback when he saw the piece of paper. He took it and looked at it. “I didn’t see it.”
“Where did you find it?” he curiously asked.
“The store checkout counter.” There was nothing to lie about, so Lin You answered openly. “You said they might find other pieces of paper?”
“Well, it’s possible.”
Xu Yan thought for a while, “There are a lot of places to hide things on the first floor. Why don’t you go up and ask everyone?”
His voice just stopped.
“Please note that the ‘fashion model’ has appeared at the fourth entrance.”
Lin You: “…”
Xu Yan: “…”
It was almost forty minutes, they all noticed, but…fashion model?
The sound of high heels landing was very crisp.
The woman walked out of the stairs gracefully step by step. Even in a dress, her style was by no means graceful—she was half a body taller than a normal adult male, or more than two meters tall, with protruding eyeballs and sunken cheekbones. At a glance, her lower jaw appeared to have a strong bite force.
She opened her mouth and showed her densely packed sharp teeth.
This was nothing. There was still a lot of blood on the woman’s mouth. She licked her mouth pretentiously, and didn’t care about the blood on her clothes—God knows what she ate before coming here.
Lin You thought she recognized who it was.
An ogre who was a model in Junji Ito’s manga.
There was a distance between them and the fourth entrance. The other party hadn’t seen them yet. Lin You was patted on the shoulder, and she turned her head.
Xu Yan: “Withdraw?”
It was hard to do anything in front of the other party. Lin You had no objection. But as soon as the two people took a step, they heard the radio again.
It wasn’t the little girl pretending to be mature and giving a notice, but her intermittent singing.
“Please…give…my red dress…”
“The face and hands are all red…”
—What was this.
Avoiding the sight of the fashion model, Lin You followed Xu Yan to the flight of stairs where everyone escaped to before, thinking to herself while going up the underground passage to the first floor.
In the best case scenario, the little girl was in a good mood and singing, but thinking about it badly… the song was out of tune and weird. It sounded like the other party was bored. They hadn’t found her right arm yet. She used this song as a reminder for the countdown.
She had always been singing.
Lin You and Xu Yan went up to the first floor and saw that the rest of the people also gathered in the middle of the corridor, also anxious because of her singing.
On both sides were a dazzling array of shops. Looking at the traces of the movement, nine people estimated that most of the places here had been turned upside down in forty minutes.
“’SMILE,’ Slit-mouthed Woman, and the fashion model…”
Someone counted on his fingers, “These are all three, why is she still singing now? What was this A-level originally going to do?”
“Think about it,” the other person soothed him, “At least they have no plans yet.”
No, it’s not that they didn’t come up with a plan. The real reason why these people can search safely without being chased by “guests”—
Xu Yan glanced at Lin You extremely vaguely, without letting the other party notice his gaze.
“Okay, you look interested, you don’t have to fight.”
The man who spoke was a head taller than the others. From his muscular figure and well-developed muscle lines, it seemed that his profession was probably related to force.
He heard the movement and turned around, “Hey, you two—“
Looking at the expression, Lin You could guess that the last half of the other side’s unfinished sentence was “are still alive”.
“Fortunately, I ran away and found this.” She raised the paper, “I think it’s a clue. Have any of you seen something similar?”
Everyone was quiet for a moment.
“I, I saw it.”
A thin boy with glasses squeezed out and unfolded the crumpled paper, “We were just wondering if we could find anything else…”
He came over to the pair, and it said “0” on the paper.
“There are few stores underground,” Lin You said, “We just turned them over, how are you upstairs?”
Even if it was to avoid those ghosts, it was a skill to be able to check the underground stores—for a time, everyone’s eyes were a little bit unclear.
“This house hasn’t been checked.”
The tall man raised his chin, “It’s almost the last point.”
This was a jewelry shop. Although a girl who looked at her quietly pale face said they turned it over one by one.
When she turned over the last jewelry box and saw what was pressed by the box, she couldn’t help but exclaim, “Found it!”
She took out the last piece of paper from underneath and handed it to the others.
Three pieces of paper were put together, but the torn edges are not very neat, and it was impossible to see what was the head and the tail. They were marked with “0,” “2,” and “5.”
Some teammates couldn’t help but mutter, “What are you suggesting?”
“If only these three pieces of paper can be found,” Xu Yan said unexpectedly, with a gentle smile, “Things that people can think of should also be related to the number…”
“Like a locker?” he said.
Lin You’s inspiration flashed.
“There are five grids from top to bottom. There are fifteen rows of lockers in one row, and four rows are three hundred grids.”
She said: “Excluding ‘502’ and ‘520’, the right hand should be in the remaining four lockers.”
Finally, there was some hope of seeing the right hand. Everyone could not help but breathe a sigh of relief, but they got stuck in the middle of the breath—this was still the first round, and it was so hard to find a clue. Is it possible that after the ghosts they will also have to do a carpet search?
What really suppressed their breathing was another sound.
Everyone involuntarily held their breath, listening to the sound of high heels hitting the ground, getting closer and closer.
