I heard that I’m super fierce - Chapter 37
Translator: NovelMultiverse | Editor: NovelMultiverse
At that moment, the Plague Doctor who was splashed by a bucket of cold water finally realized something was wrong.
He suddenly lowered his head, the empty bucket hanging on his beak mask fell to the ground with a crash and rolled to the prep table.
The faucet next to the pool turned on and the water overflowing from it accumulated more and more on the ground, overflowing to the shoe soles and wetting the sides of the shoes. In the pool of water, apart from the hand holding his ankle tightly and the scattered long hair, a swollen, soaked face that was on the brink of decay slowly emerged.
The face pulled the corners of her mouth and smiled at him.
She immediately yanked him down with the hand that held onto him!
The Plague Doctor couldn’t react fast enough. He only felt the lack of support under his feet, and his whole body was instantly submerged from the bottom up into the water that was clearly only an inch deep.
—Not even a bubble.
For a long time, there was only the sound of dripping water in the back kitchen. Then there was finally the sound of releasing a breath that was held in. After four or five seconds, the tall man got up first and carefully looked at the movement from the door.
Wang Yiming: “…he went down?”
Even if he knew that the opponent was under the orders of a certain teammate, he was still a little worried that a hand would emerge from below his feet and he would be pulled in. His strength was great; the problem was he couldn’t swim! Isn’t it the right thing to cool down for a minute after a flood?
“Well, almost.” Lin You waded across the water and walked to the pool to turn on the faucet. “It depends on how long it can drag him.”
Before the opponent chased them in, she only had less than two minutes to think about how to take corresponding countermeasures.
The Plague Doctor’s abilities caused death to living creatures, and in her current picture book, there were obviously no living ones and those who had already died. There were only a few who counted.
She knew that the plaster statue’s performance was to turn its sight and twist its neck 360 degrees, and it was okay to find a quiet place to be a watcher—although she did not know how to communicate with him to see the results of the monitoring—to say nothing of its combat effectiveness. It was more like a functional character. Mary Shaw was too restrictive, she likes to use some mysterious tricks to scare people and ask “Who is the puppet now?” Lin You didn’t think the Plague Doctor who could transform corpses would be scared of a few puppets.
Xue Yao…would most likely come out with her fists clenched and ready to do it, but the problem was that she didn’t know whether her level of attack would be effective for the Plague Doctor.
Therefore, Lin You thought of one of the remaining people.
Now she thought about the turbid liquid that leaked from the crack in the door of the hotel room where she and Geng Qinghe were staying. She still thought that the proprietress did this for other reasons, and she never came in just to show her face and frighten them—she thought that this guy was going to use this to move before immediately flushing her down the drain with a mop.
Lin You gambled on this, risking using the last chance in the remaining time to summon the water ghost. The latter hummed unwillingly and admitted that if she had to act for a few seconds at night to make the area of the water large enough, besides being able to get in, she thought she could also drag them into the lake where they were being drowned.
Of course, it was one thing to get involved, and it was another thing to kill. It was like she later jumped into the lake from the burning hotel roof by mistake, and the proprietress who had thought that she was vengeful and triumphant was beaten by Xue Yao.
The situation with the Plague Doctor was still different. After all, he was still a medical professional, and all the hard work was entrusted to the zombies. His physical strength was average, and there was a guy below him that was dragging him.
The task of making the water ghost more convenient fell onto Lin You’s shoulders. She unscrewed the tap to let the tap water flow all over the place, and instructed Wang Yiming and the others to put a bucket on the door—the water was a natural bonus to the water ghost. It was easier to pull on a drenched guy.
“Shall we quickly take this opportunity to escape,” Li Jing said uneasily. “Or are we going to stand here and watch…?”
“You can’t run very far. You’ll bump into him sooner or later.”
Lin You’s tone was still calm.
“It’s better to solve it once and for all.”
She had just finished speaking.
A violent cough came from near the door, and everyone jolted. The pitch-black Plague Doctor knelt on the ground, and his originally loose attire of a doctor of Black Death was even wetter than before, and he was coughing hard at the choking water, “Kekekeke!”
He took a few deep breaths and finally managed to steady his breathing before shaking his body. Then he looked over here again.
“Hold on.” Seeing that the Plague Doctor wanted to come this way, Lin You made a gesture of picking up the paper bag on SCP-096’s head, “I will expose it when you come over.”
She wasn’t afraid that the other party would transform 096 or something at this time—the order to the water ghost was to tire him out until he didn’t have much energy left.
The Plague Doctor really didn’t move anymore.
Obviously, he was aware of the threat SCP-096 posed to him. The eyes hidden under the mask were fixed on Lin You, and after a long time, he slowly raised his hand.
—He raised both his hands to his ears.
“You will regret it.”
When he spoke again, perhaps because he had been entangled in the water for a long time, there was a little hoarseness in the Plague Doctor’s voice.
“You will regret rejecting my treatment,” he declared. “Being at the mercy of a disease that cannot be fully understood is a cruel punishment. I can save you all. I am the only one who can do this because I…I am the antidote!”
“I’m pretty sure I won’t.”
Lin You pretended that her finger was still on top of the 096’s headgear about to take it off, “What I am more interested in now is that you seem to recognize it?”
It’s one thing to intuitively feel threats, but he seemed to know what it meant to see SCP-096’s face, which was unusual.
“Yes, yes… I know.” The Plague Doctor still did not recover from the emotions. “We used to live in the same place. I saw it during the transfer, although it was just walking back and forth behind the glass in the corner…”[Read this novel and other amazing translated novels from the original source at the “Novel Multiverse dot com” website @ novelmultiverse.com]
“To be honest, my stay there was good at first. They were willing to provide me with corpses to allow me to do experiments. My research had also made considerable progress, with only a few more experimental items. But they were out of control, and they said I was not allowed to use human corpses for further research, so I decided to go out and look for patients by myself—”
Lin You understood the other party’s request and interrupted: “What if I promised to provide you with materials?”
The Plague Doctor’s eyes clearly lit up.
“Are you serious?”
—In a sense, he was easily satisfied.
Just as he voluntarily stayed at the foundation, he was still grateful for receiving suitable animal carcasses and thought the foundation was very generous. The only goal that drove the Plague Doctor’s operation was to eliminate the plague. And all the benefits related to this would attract him.
“Of course.” Lin You said.
“So… if you promised this way,” the Plague Doctor also knew that it would not be good for him to nag them any more, so he stepped back and said, “Please allow me to act with you in the future.”
Li Jing: “…”
Wang Yiming: “…”
It was actually a good result!
This was a secret joy to Lin You’s ears.
“But, can’t I really cure you?” In the end, the Plague Doctor asked again, “I’ll be careful, it doesn’t hurt.”
Lin You: “…”
“No.” She vetoed it.
The Plague Doctor sighed with regret. The second after his figure disappeared from the same place, Lin You also had an extra SR card in her hand. It was the first time that Wang Yiming saw her do this with his own eyes, and he couldn’t help taking a few more glances while exclaiming.
“This is resolved,” he continued, “Then let’s go and put this leg in the coffin.”
There were still three things waiting to be found.
Li Jing and Wang Yiming wanted to leave, but Xu Yan stood there thinking.
“Translating what he just said,” he said, “Wasn’t it a containment breach?”
The Plague Doctor proved that he and SCP-096 were once contained by the SCP Foundation. Now, they both escaped to this station—
The purpose of the SCP Foundation is to control, contain, and protect, and the facilities are also very tightly guarded. But because it contains supernatural creatures beyond the scope of understanding, accidental incidents occasionally occur such as these guys breaching their containment and escaping.
The Foundation often dispatches special forces to bring them under control again, but the “shy” people and Plague Doctors can come here, which means that this time it was probably a very serious containment breach, and they have not had time to retrieve them.
Li Jing was still at a loss, “Then…?”
“Then,” Lin You said, “Do you know how many anomalies the Foundation has contained?”
She was gesturing a “four.”
Wang Yiming: “…four hundred?”
“On the low side, four thousand.”
Lin You said dryly.
“There are still a few on the inside that are more dangerous than them—I don’t know how many escaped this time.”
Wang Yiming and Li Jing, who had experienced the threat of these two guys to varying degrees, got goosebumps at the same time. It was hard for them to imagine how terrifying the remaining guys were.
“Then-then-then-then what about now?!” Li Jing was a little panicked.
“Don’t worry too much now,” Lin You said. She remembered the toothbrush that Geng Qinghe had discovered in the movie theater, and she thought that they might still be scattered in different copies. “Anyway, we should find the body parts first—ah, I’ll leave this to you.”
Wang Yiming said “Huh.”
Lin You’s lips pursed.
“I’ll go back and have a look alone,” she said.
Standing alone in front of the old-fashioned elevator, Lin You raised her hand again and pressed the down button.
The notification light was on.
To be honest, she didn’t know if she could return to the original platform if she went down the other way.
But the elevator door opened, and she walked right in. Following closely behind was SCP-096, who followed with its head down, and then quietly found a corner in the elevator.
The elevator door closed again, and when it slid down, Lin You glanced at 096 who was consciously facing the wall.
She refused the company of Wang Yiming and others, wanting to be alone—well, she couldn’t be considered alone now—she was investigating what she was thinking about.
Lin You still felt that the first flight of stairs was strange.
Since something related to that came in as an insider, “he” must know what “game” they were going to play, and it was worth discussing how he knew it—going deeper, maybe “he” knew who was behind the scenes. To put it simply, there must be clues on the stairs that they don’t yet have.
In case the remaining part couldn’t be found in 30 minutes, or if the little girl made a mistake, she wanted to figure out if there was any way to go.
For this reason, the risk was worthwhile. In order not to delay the overtime, she would come back and have a look alone.
Only if they can go back.
The elevator shook suddenly, and it indicated that it had arrived. Lin You was relieved when she saw that the platform was the first platform she had seen outside.
The track was empty, and the tram that carried her was long gone. She turned her gaze to the stairs directly opposite and walked quickly over. This time she tore off the yellow seals on both sides of the handrail without any hesitation.
The scene before her suddenly changed.
As if in a flash, the stairs leading to the upper floor became a closed stairwell. The iron door was old and looked very firm. The handle was unlocked, and Lin You easily opened it as soon as she twisted it.
She looked at the stairwell that was so dark inside that she couldn’t see her hands, and wondered what the original Ren Mingde was thinking about entering.
However, she had to do the same now anyway. There was no need to psych herself up at all. Lin You stepped onto the stairwell.
At almost the same moment, a shrill voice rang in her ears.
“How dare you come back,” the voice that was too sharp to tell its age said angrily, “You still have the courage to come?!”
There was still darkness in front of her.
Lin You couldn’t see anything clearly, and the voice was completely unfamiliar, but listening to its tone, she suddenly understood.
This was the main body of the thing. Instead of Ren Mingde attached to him, it may be one of its clones—or possibly whatever it wants. But in any case, the damage to the doppelganger’s clone greatly hurt its vitality, and it also deeply remembered its hatred.
“Because I have something to ask you,” she said calmly, “It’s quite a lot.”
“You’re dreaming!” the voice in the stairwell said sharply, “Don’t expect me to answer you. But that doesn’t matter. As long as you come in today, just don’t think about leaving again—”
“Well, I don’t think so.”
Lin You’s eyes rolled, “Then don’t beg me to leave for a while.”
The voice sneered, “How could I beg you?!”
The dismembered body was almost the same!
“Okay,” Lin You shrugged, “Whatever you say.”
So she took another step forward.
SCP-096 with its paper bag also moved and stepped into the threshold.
As soon as it noticed the existence of 096, the voice suddenly disappeared completely.
“Get out!!” It broke the silence after a few seconds, “Take it and get away from me—!!!”[Read this novel and other amazing translated novels from the original source at the “Novel Multiverse dot com” website @ novelmultiverse.com]
