I heard that I’m super fierce - Chapter 31
Translator: NovelMultiverse | Editor: NovelMultiverse
Hiding behind the pile of cardboard boxes she had piled up, Lin You finally got a glimpse of the true face of the Red Person.
She held her breath and watched the other party slowly walk into the warehouse while humming.
“Stained bright red…the face and hands are all red…”
While singing, the little girl pouted exaggeratedly. From her eyes to her bare toes, there was blood all over her body, and her hair was sticky and tangled together.
She didn’t pay attention here and held a cloth rabbit that was also stained with blood in her arms. Who knows where the bloodstains came from.
Since it will split people into pieces, this so-called Red Person—
Lin You thought.
Should it be stained red from blood splatters?
It was not good to put eggs into a basket, and a person is unable to bring others to death. In the huge warehouse, the three of them hid in different places like the previous division of tasks.
The Red Person’s actions were obviously very purposeful, and she determined that someone was hiding in the warehouse.
She had to find a chance to escape from the door while she was walking inside.
Holding her breath, Lin You had to continue to pay attention to the other party’s movements, and she poked her head out carefully again.
—But this time, what appeared in the field of vision was half of her blood-stained face.
The Red Person’s wide-open eyes didn’t move, and the black eyes that were bigger than normal people’s were hollow and empty. She pressed her cheek against the other side of the carton, and the corners of her grinning mouth pulled her entire face into a twisted shape. She only looked at Lin You face to face from a palm-wide distance.
She silently signaled to Lin You.
Lin You’s pupils shrank suddenly.
“Do you want to wear bright—red—clothes?” the Red Person sang word by word.
She burst into a gruff laughter of “hahahahaha” and kicked her heels on the ground. The rabbit doll fell loosely to the ground, and her arms were stretched out to strangle Lin You’s waist. Knowing that the other party killed people with bare hands, Lin You naturally knew how strong she would be. She rolled to the ground and made the Red Person rush into the air, but the latter did not give up, and the bloody left hand grabbed it in front of her—
Staring at the empty space in front of her, Lin You didn’t react for a moment.
The change happened in just a few milliseconds, and the other two people got up and looked at that side after hearing the sudden movement.
“That guy is gone?… Uh,” Wang Yiming stared blankly at her right hand holding a fist in the air, “Are you…?”
Lin You: “…”
She faked a smile.
—She had almost subconsciously given the Red Person an uppercut.
“Did you hit her?”
Thinking of such a development, Wang Yiming actually felt a little excited. He squatted down and enthusiastically instructed her, “Hey, little girl, let me tell you. It’s not good to hit so hard, it’ll hurt. There is no real power. You have to bend your arm this way, bend it at this angle, and then—see, hit her here. If you listen to me, you can’t mess up. This way you can at least make your opponent dizzy.”
Lin You answered “Oh, oh” politely. Xu Yan listened more seriously.
“Brother Wang,” he learned to imitate Xie Yuanyun’s tone, “What do you do in real life?”
Wang Yiming chuckled, “I trained as a boxer. A few years ago I was dragged to fight in illegal boxing for two months.”
“I haven’t killed anyone,” he declared, “I don’t want to.”
Only then did Wang Yiming come to his senses, remembering that there was still something he hadn’t asked.
“The ‘Red Person’ was really taken away by you all at once?”
How was that possible…
“No, no, no.”
Lin You knew what she had misunderstood, and immediately explained: “I haven’t done anything yet. After rushing and not catching me, she was about to catch me a second time and suddenly disappeared from my eyes.”
Wang Yiming: “How did that—”
“Someone else turned around.” Xu Yan said.
Meeting the gazes of Lin You and Wang Yiming, he shrugged.
“Yes, I also know the background of this copy,” he said, “But since Li Jing had also seen it at the time, just listen to her.”
“There was a scene like this in the original work—someone was caught by a Red Person who was bound with hoops when they heard her singing. Halfway through the singing, the Red Person disappeared somehow. This was because another friend of his deliberately ran away and went back. Returning made this death mechanism have a higher priority, so the Red Person temporarily gave up killing him and teleported to his friend.”
“Although one of the prerequisites for going back to kill is to have seen a Red Person, but here it should be extended to the setting where whether you have seen it or not, returning will lead the Red Person to the last setting.”
“It’s not the same as starting after singing that song. This was a rapid dispatch of the opponent. So,” Xu Yan concluded, “from now on you should avoid making any backward movements.”
Easier said than done. Wang Yiming came here more on intuition and fists, and he was very tired of this behavior of strictly controlling his subconscious reactions at all times. He leaned against the pile of boxes, “There aren’t many people left, right?”
Lin You counted. This was the second round of extra time. Counting the teammate who turned back to lead the celebrity away, she had seen four go out so far.
Xu Yan: “Including the traitor, there are eight others.”
It was okay for him not to mention the traitor. When he mentioned the guy who took the body first, Wang Yiming immediately wanted to swear.
“Which bastard is the one who got in here?!”
Lin You thought about it and gave out her own guess.
“Remember the boy with glasses,” she said.
“You mean the one who walked with you?” Wang Yiming frowned, “I remember his surname was Ren?”
She said “Uh-huh.”
“After we went down, by chance, we directly ran into the Engraver, and his glasses were knocked off, and then his behavior later—”
The first suspicious point was when she made Ren Mingde follow her at the beginning. It was because he was fooled, and in the latter’s eyes, he was definitely the easiest one to engage. In his presence, the Engraver could let her guard down and make people think that the companion ignored her because he was difficult to move while injured or was easily exposed, not at all having misgivings to overtake him.[Read this novel and other amazing translated novels from the original source at the “Novel Multiverse dot com” website @ novelmultiverse.com]
As for the pair of glasses that were knocked down on the ground, since he didn’t say that it was inconvenient, she just let him go.
The problem was that if people can’t see the path under their feet, they will hesitate no matter what, but in retrospect, his footsteps sounded too smooth at the time.
In order to strive for reality, “Box” will not correct the player’s vision, and the game image was also the player’s usual vision. The pair of glasses on the bridge of his nose were thought to be what the original Ren Mingde used to wear in reality, but after being dropped, they became a disguise for the ghosts to impersonate him.
“One more thing,” Lin You said, “He has been doing this motion of pushing glasses, right?”
Wang Yiming let out an “Ah” and nodded.
“If you wear glasses for a long time, you might subconsciously want to push them up,” she said, “But it might just be a small gesture learned from before he was replaced. Because once the glasses fell off, he never did it again. It’s more common for people who get out of this habit to find out that they don’t wear glasses when they want to push—this shows that not wearing glasses was the norm for him.”
“Finally, the third point.”
“We talked about our careers, and his answer at the time was a bit familiar. I thought he wanted to express himself as weak, but thinking about it now, he did mean that, but he was just repeating what the girl said at the beginning.”
She didn’t understand what they were talking about but only guessed that the problem was about being strong or not, so she directly applied the complaints she heard at the beginning.
Wang Yiming was stunned.
He wasn’t good at mental work at first, and now he realized that the girl made some sense.
“Actually, I wanted to use this guy as a werewolf and give him a ticket to leave,” Lin You said, “It’s too suspicious.”
Wang Yiming: “…”
Xu Yan was pointed at: “…”
“I was wronged, I was wronged.” He cleared his throat twice, “Anyway, the above are all just doubts. Is this really the evidence?”
He walked to the corner Lin You was staring at, and bent over to pick up the claw hammer thrown there—there was a bloody palm print on the handle of the hammer.
Lin You said “Um.”
This was obviously the “kill weapon” used to break the lock, and the heavy bloodstains on it could only be left by Ren Mingde, who had been covering the wound with his hand.
Thinking about it this way, being lured and injured by the Engraver was just a part of his way to disguise his strength and reduce their vigilance, but he did not expect that his move directly triggered his own exposure.
“We separated shortly after the stairs,” Lin You said, “They had no obstacles on the way, so they can get there faster than us. But since Ren Mingde was the one who was dropped—“
The three looked at each other.
Li Jing, who was with him, was in danger.
“We can only find it as soon as possible,” she said, “We just don’t know where they’re hiding now.”
They didn’t know if they moved their positions while they were in the warehouse. They were still a bit reluctant to search up and down two floors with three people for more than ten minutes, let alone the restriction that they can’t look back. There was also 096 and the hanging balloons—
“Who said you can go?”
At that moment a familiar voice came from the door. A chill rushed up Lin You’s back.
Wang Yiming had always acted on instinct, and he instinctively rushed over and closed the iron gate pushed open by the Red Person. He moved a step faster, seeing that the rope loop was rubbing his neck under his eyelids—it was not put on anyway.
“…You,” Xu Yan asked strong and steadily, “Whose voice did you hear?”
Lin You and Wang Yiming spoke at almost the same time. They looked at the indescribable expressions on Xu Yan’s face, and they also understood what was going on.
The Hanging Balloon was derived from the legend of the double body. It is said that if a person meets his double body, another clone in the world, it will not be long before he leaves the world.
Although there was only one human head balloon outside the door, they all heard their own voices. It seemed that they didn’t plan to let them go.
“Anyway, there are only two paths before you.”
Across the iron door, the Hanging Balloon persuaded: “It’s better to have a short pain than a long one, and staying inside is a mere psychological torture.”
“Let’s do it,” listening to your own voice ringing outside the door felt really messy and weird. “As long as you send one person to me, I can let the remaining two people leave…”
Everyone was a teammate who had only met each other recently, so this was undoubtedly provoking each other’s relationship, and the atmosphere in the warehouse was already tense, which was damaging.
They couldn’t let it continue to waste time anymore. There was already a ghost on the team, and it would be even more impetuous. Lin You calculated secretly and thought that one and a half hours had passed. If there was any cool down time—
The next second, the picture book suddenly opened in front of her eyes, and her eyes lit up and she grabbed the card that popped up.
The cool-down time summoned from the card selected has not arrived, but the skill of drawing cards had just been refreshed.
—The card was also just right!
Xu Yan adapted well, but Wang Yiming stared at her for a while, “What is this?!”
Lin You couldn’t explain anymore.
“Did you see what the rope looked like when you closed the door?” she asked, “Can it be broken?”
Wang Yiming subconsciously replied: “I just saw it. It’s quite thick, but if it was cut hard, it should be able to be broken. It’s just that we can’t stop!”
It was impossible for a human to beat the power and speed of a Hanging Balloon, she was only afraid that she would be hung from the rope before that.
Lin You: “That’s right!”
She waved her hand, and the big living person suddenly appeared in front of her surprised him again.
It cannot be said to be a living person.
The Slit-mouthed Woman in the windbreaker wore the mask tightly, and she looked at Lin You bluntly.
“Come on, take this,” the latter smiled and stuffed the thing prepared beforehand into the other’s hand. “I saw it in the supermarket next door. It’s an apology for breaking your scissors.”
The Slit-mouthed Woman was taken aback.
She took them in silence. She felt a little embarrassed for a while, and couldn’t help but look at the other person again.
When she bought them she thought, although the more scissors, the better, these might not fit her liking—if the values were realized, you could probably see that over the top of her head the words “Favorability +2” awkwardly popped out.
Seeing that her attitude softened, Lin You patted her shoulder kindly.
“It just so happens, I have something to ask you.”
The iron door of the warehouse opened.
In the shocked eyes of the human head balloon, it did not expect this person to come out—it also reacted extremely quickly, and made a counterattack without hesitation.
There was no other advantage to the Slit-mouthed Woman, but speed prevailed.
She twisted and avoided the rope that it wanted to put on her body, grabbed it, opened the scissors in her hand, and swung them down towards the rope. She got them stuck just right, but this rope was not a normal material, and if you wanted to cut it off, it would be ruined again—
“Cut the rope!” As if sensing her hesitation, a shout came from the iron gate, “Don’t worry about the scissors, I can give you as many as I can!”
The Slit-mouthed Woman was cruel and pressed her handle hard!
The upper end of the shining metal noose was cut with a small gap, but the scissors also broke apart with a clinking sound, and they were so deformed that they could not be used again.
“Ha!” Upon seeing the Hanging Balloon, she couldn’t help but laugh happily, “Even the weapon is broken, what can you do now—”
Before the words came to an end, the Slit-mouthed Woman smiled sadly.
She opened her windbreaker and showed the rows of scissors hanging in it.[Read this novel and other amazing translated novels from the original source at the “Novel Multiverse dot com” website @ novelmultiverse.com]
