I heard that I’m super fierce - Chapter 41
Translator: NovelMultiverse | Editor: NovelMultiverse
Wang Yiming was taken aback and twisted the doorknob a few more times in disbelief.
But no matter how hard he turned it, all he heard was the sound of the lock teeth “clicking”—obviously, the door was locked from the inside, and he couldn’t open it so easily.
It wasn’t this that made the few remaining people nervous.
The passage in this secret door was deep, and there was not even a light bulb, let alone a loudspeaker, otherwise, they wouldn’t be guilty of trying to find their way with a flashlight. Wang Yiming’s hand was still on the handle, and he heard a faint voice from outside.
The sound of the radio broadcast was muffled by the thick concrete wall, but the words could be clearly distinguished.
The little girl’s voice remained steady.
“The Red Person appeared behind Wang Yiming, please look back and confirm.”
She repeated it again.
“Mr. Wang Yiming, the Red Person appeared behind you, please look back and confirm.”
After the broadcast sounded, there was dead silence in the channel.
Of course, Wang Yiming, who was still holding the round doorknob, knew that he couldn’t really listen to her. He stiffened his neck and didn’t dare to move.
“…Really?” he asked.
They were all gathered together, but Wang Yiming stood at the front. There was no need for him to turn his head; the other people could see the situation behind him.
Lin You: “Hmm…”
“Yes,” she said, “but it’s probably not what you imagine.”
Red Person: “Oh, wuwuwuwuwuwuwu!!!“
Li Jing couldn’t bear to look right away. She was afraid she would laugh at the scene——
Apart from anything else, the Red Person who couldn’t sing had to jump violently behind the target while trying to get the light bulb out of its mouth.
But the light bulb that filled her mouth didn’t leave a gap, and she could only touch the cap of the bulb. No matter how she tried, she would be stuck there for a long time.
As the instigator of this scene, Xu Yan smiled and watched like a good person, without realizing that the Red Person was staring at him.
—Perhaps she wanted to kill him more than Wang Yiming.
Only Tao Leshan, who didn’t know what kind of friendly interaction they had with the Red Person, looked confused.
…What’s going on??
The atmosphere of a good horror film took a turn for the worse, and Wang Yiming felt that he had been deceived.
But this was better than the Red Person’s real hands. He quickly reacted, took two deep breaths, and kicked at the doorknob with brute force.
“Come out!” he yelled, “Or I’ll bring out the black fists!”
He kicked for the first time, and the door only shook with his movements. Then came the second and the third kicks. The handle was kicked looser, and the nailed-on iron plate leaned to the side.
The moment the door lock was broken violently, the wooden door of the broadcasting room opened in the sight of everyone, but only a gap appeared and it stopped quietly.
Wang Yiming was about to push the door when he saw it, but he couldn’t open it no matter how hard he tried. He touched it with his hands again, his expression was visibly stiff.
“What’s wrong?” Lin You asked, and she stepped forward.
When she also touched the air gap in the door, she understood what the other party was so stunned.
There was an invisible wall blocking it.
Lin You remembered what Xu Yan said shortly after the start of this so-called “game of finding the body”—they found that there were transparent walls at the entrance and exit of the station that prevented them from leaving, even if it was for the same reason.
This time, not from the radio, but through the crack of the door, the little girl’s “chuckling” laughter rang like a bell.
She said, “You can’t get in.”
There was only a small gap in the door, and they couldn’t see what was going on behind the door, nor where she was.
Lin You said “Okay, are you sure?”
The little girl: “……”
At least she originally thought so.
But even the Red Person was blocked by the light bulb, let alone seeing the endless stream of words—she stopped there without embarrassment, she just couldn’t take it for a long time.
“I advise you not to try again,” the little girl said coldly, “It’s useless, it’s just a waste of time—as I said in the beginning, if the time is up and the task is not completed, all the members will be out.”
“I have given you a chance for overtime, and I won’t give it a second time.” She said in a frenzy.
“—If I were you.”
Lin You interrupted her casually. Wang Yiming, who also wanted to speak, persuaded her with his eyes.
“You won’t be so confident after being discovered in your hiding place. Okay, you don’t have to worry too much. We will continue this painful game as you wish. I just want to confirm it again. What will happen after the game is over?”
This sentence made her not worry too much about the false anger that made the little girl’s face blue and white, but she ground her molars and still suppressed the fire, “…I may let you get out of here.”
The word “may” was a bit interesting.
Thinking like this, Lin You didn’t show anything on her face.
“We will help you find your body if you let us leave—it looks like this is a win-win situation?” She said briskly, “It will not be good for both parties to continue this entanglement. Anyway, only the last part is left. Give us something. How about a little hint? Don’t be too specific, just give an approximate range.”
The little girl was silent for a long time.
“Okay. I can tell you that there is nothing upstairs, just on this floor and below.”
“Isn’t it in your room?” Li Jing suspiciously asked.
“Of course not,” she denied, “I don’t have to lie to you.”
“But I didn’t give the tip without expecting something in return,” Meiji sneered, “Meizi, take it away.”
Lin You suddenly realized who she was talking about—the Red Person who was called by the name stretched out her hand to SCP-096.
She used SCP-096 to get rid of the traitor and then threatened the stairwell to learn about the radio station. The other party might have seen them uncomfortable for a long time. Then they found an excuse to take it away from her so that nothing happened again.
Unexpectedly, it didn’t move.
The Red Person already had an extraordinary strength that was inconsistent with her body shape, but SCP-096, who was dragged by her, was still squatting there as solid as a rock. After pulling it twice, it just swayed. Forced by her sister Meiji’s order, she took a step forward and wanted to pull it again—
With a “pop,” 096 finally slapped the Red Person’s hand with an impatient slap.
It uses actual actions to show that it wants to stay here.
Red Person: “…”
This behavior caused both of them to deflate to varying degrees. The latter had failed to move it, so she had to assume that she hadn’t said it at all.
“You better find it quickly, otherwise…”
She didn’t say clearly what would happen after “Otherwise,” she just groaned loudly. The door closed quickly, and the Red Person stepped back two steps, disappearing into the darkness, giving them a way out.
“I thought,” Tao Leshan, who didn’t dare speak until he got out of the secret door, finally squeaked, “We were really going to rush in just now.”
Lin You smiled.
“How could we?”
She said, “We deceived her.”
Tao Leshan: “…Huh?”
“We couldn’t find a way to get over that air wall,” Lin You said, “It just made her think we had another move.”
Although they didn’t know where the surveillance systems of this station were installed, everything they did should be seen by the little girl. Knowing that she can use ghosts and monsters, they felt a lot of fear.
Lin You also took advantage of her lack of reaction because of this fear, pulling the opponent from the game to the same position as them to cheat clues out of her.[Read this novel and other amazing translated novels from the original source at the “Novel Multiverse dot com” website @ novelmultiverse.com]
If she really wanted to understand at that moment, she would know where they might break-in. If there was a way, she would have broken through the air wall blocking the exit of the station and escaped.
“In any case, we asked for the scope.”
Wang Yiming, who was almost named, was obviously unwilling to let go, but he couldn’t think of a better way, “…can you believe it?”
“At least for now,” Xu Yan said, “She has only concealed things, and what she said is not deceiving.”
“I also think I can find it.”
Lin You pondered, “She said this floor and below, meaning that those platforms are also included?”
Everyone glanced at each other, so they decided on the next step.
There were less than twenty minutes before the end of overtime.
Ten platforms divided among them are two each.
Lin You was in charge of No. 1 and No. 3 in the East District. The platforms looked the same, with different signs because of the different routes.
She looked under the benches one by one, and then remembered the leg found in the vending machine. Although she thought it was unlikely that such a big doll would be stuffed in it, she still checked.
After confirming that not even a screw could be missed, Lin You straightened up and wiped off her forehead.
Her clothes still had dark red circles around her waist, which were the marks left by the Red Person. Looking down again, Lin You saw a pair of feet standing behind her.
Lin You: “…”
096 had been following quietly, and even the paper bag didn’t make much noise at this moment. He was so quiet that she almost forgot he was there.
Thinking about it, she hit the Red Person so he wouldn’t leave her. She couldn’t help but be moved by this kind of perseverance.
She also wanted to get information from the Slit-mouthed woman who was caught in the picture book and didn’t dare appear.
She didn’t know how long it would follow her.
Looking at the clock, another six minutes passed. Lin You shook her head, discarded these extraneous thoughts, and ran up the stairs two at a time.
Everyone had similar tasks. She went upstairs after searching, and the other four people came back in just over a minute.
They all were empty-handed.
“I didn’t find it,” Wang Yiming sighed, “it seems to not be on this platform.”
Li Jing: “Well, where else can it be? Could it be true that she lied to us?”
Tao Leshan looked a bit strange.
“Actually…I just slid on the edge of the platform and almost fell directly onto the rails,” he hesitated, “but I felt like a hand was pushing me behind my back immediately, and then I climbed up.”
They all heard Lin You mention that as long as something hits the rails, it will be crushed to pieces. At this moment, it is inevitable that there will be lingering fears.
“Really,” Lin You thought, “…someone helped you?”
“It felt that way. Anyway, it doesn’t matter.”
He paused, “The point is that I didn’t find it either.”
Xu Yan was the only one who had not spoken.
He cupped his chin and fell into contemplation.
“If the scope is limited to this level,” Xu Yan said slowly, “There should be several places that can be found.”
“Excluding the convenience stores and bookstores.”
She and Li Jing had carefully searched one of them, and they searched the other one after they came out of the secret door—Lin You said, “There are two or three shops.”
Xu Yan: “Besides the store, isn’t there a place that is closest to the possible activities of the Red Person?”
Lin You lowered her eyes.
“Huh?” Seeing her doing this, Li Jing asked blankly, “Where, Lin You?”
Li Jing murmured: “But the elevator is so open with the door open, where can she hide things? Ah! Could it be that—”
She shut her mouth suddenly, looking back and forth at Lin You and Xu Yan in horror, trying to get a negative answer from them.
But neither of them did that.
This is a very uncomfortable association, Lin You thought. While she was sitting in the elevator trying to escape the Red Person, the other party squatted above her.
“It’s just a possibility,” she said. “Let’s go and look for it—you can continue to search the store.”
“Hey, Li Jing, wait.”
She stopped Li Jing again, “I want to ask you something.”
There were only five people left, and it was already enough to have two people remove the elevator ceiling.
When Li Jing and the others went to the beverage store and continued to search, Lin You pressed the button outside the elevator to prevent the door from closing naturally.
In the elevator car, Xu Yan stepped on the ladder brought from the tool room and carefully observed the gap at the top.
Even for this old elevator, there was a safety window on the top of the car for emergency rescue. He recognized the square marks, put two hands on it, and pushed it up forcefully.
The car shook suddenly.
Once the safety window is opened, the elevator will automatically stop—it seems that this weird station was no exception. Lin You released the button and walked into the elevator herself.
The elevator was old and the window sashes were rusty. It took a long time before it opened to the outside with a creaking noise. Xu Yan went up two more steps on the ladder and leaned half of his body out of the car.
“I have to say something.”
Lin You suddenly said, “I heard something very interesting.”
Xu Yan’s voice echoed in the elevator shaft, “Huh?”
“I asked Li Jing,” she said, “In the comics, the protagonist also found the broadcasting station where Meiji was hosting the game.”
Xu Yan’s movements paused.
“But just like we did at the time, whoever holds the doorknob in his hand, Meiji will pinpoint the Red Person behind that person exactly—and call their name.”
“Oh? So what?”
“You know what might happen.”
Lin You said.
“So I retreated at the last minute and let Wang Yiming rush up—because he has that temper. But are you afraid of death? No, you won’t be the first one to be afraid of death. There is also a lot of risk.”
“After thinking, there is only one possible purpose.”
“The first time that the broadcaster reported this, my name was directly reported. You guessed that the person who opened the door of the radio station would also be quoted as the full name in the comics,” she said, “—’Xu Yan’ I’m afraid is not the pseudonym you made up, right?”
The man standing on the top of the ladder was silent for a long time and suddenly chuckled.
“Does this game make people use their real names?”
“Of course not.” Lin You raised her eyebrows. “It’s just that you are very suspicious of your identity when you have already had an insider.”
“Don’t worry,” he spread his hands with a grin, “I’m not a spy.”
“It doesn’t matter if you are.”
She said sincerely.
“What I have is a way to sort out the mole.”
Xu Yan: “………………”
Even if he really wasn’t a traitor, this tone made him instinctively look back.
“Fortunately, I didn’t feel cheated, so I quickly changed the target.” He whispered.
Otherwise, his ability to trick would not work.
Lin You: “What?”
“Ahem, nothing.” Xu Yan cleared his throat and withdrew his hand from the wire rope outside the car roof, “I think this should prove that I’m not malicious, right?”
He got down the ladder and pulled what he was holding in his hand out of the safety window.
It was a bunny doll covered in blood that was almost half a person tall.
In the coffin where everyone gathered around, the five positions were arranged according to the sunken figure.
Now only the head was left.
Wang Yiming was holding the rabbit doll that he had just torn in half. This puppet appeared old, but the quality was good. Even though it was him, it took a lot of effort to pull the head off the body.
The rabbit puppet’s head was bigger than its body, and his face suddenly changed when he stuffed his hands into the full cotton and fumbled around.
With a calm face and a handful of long hair in his hand, he pulled the little girl’s head out of the cotton little by little.
Nobody had a good look on their face.
Tao Leshan stepped back subconsciously and kicked open the coffin lid, holding out his foot to draw in the cold air.
The visual impact of the severed limb and head was not the same. The little girl’s eyes were closed tightly, and there were obvious signs of sawing on the neck.
“It feels like the Red Person…” Li Jing said weirdly, “It really is a sister.”
…She who has fed the Red Person at close range was very qualified to say this.
Wang Yiming squatted down and put the head in the coffin.
The moment he put it in, the severed limbs that were originally placed in the coffin seemed to suddenly have life.
Shallow white light was reflected in the sections, and they were stuck together a little bit. The next second after the fusion was completed, the head slowly opened its eyes.
She rolled her eyes and scanned the crowd around her.
“Brothers and sisters,” the little girl named Meiji had a sweet smile on her face, “Thank you for helping me find my body.”
“It’s still weird.”
Tao Leshan whispered, “Aren’t you at that broadcasting station?”
“What is there is my ‘heart’ which is usually called the soul—” she said, “the body is scattered in various places.”
Wang Yiming frowned and said, “Is it time to honor your promise?”
The little girl frowned, then suddenly realized, “Oh, you mean that?”
“But I just said I can let you go,” she bit her words slyly. “You can’t do anything else.”
Seeing a quirky smile suddenly appear, everyone was alarmed.
“For example, I think my skirt is not as red as Meiji’s. I want to use your—”
Before she finished her words, she suddenly felt her shoulder pushed abruptly.
Little girl: “??!!!”
She had just gotten up from the coffin, but she was pushed by Lin You and fell straight back. She was caught off guard and saw her eyes go dark.
Wang Yiming quickly put his hands on the handle, and together he covered her with the lid. He held it with half of his body strength, without giving the person below a chance to open it again.
Lin You let go, turned around, and shouted, “Li Jing!”
“Okay!” Li Jing understood, and cold light shot out from her hands.
The slender and strong thread in her bag wrapped the coffin several times from top to bottom under her control.
“I’ll tell you something,” Lin You sighed, “Don’t rush to talk nonsense before you come out.”
“Okay,” she said, “Say that again?”
The coffin that was sealed tightly: “…”[Read this novel and other amazing translated novels from the original source at the “Novel Multiverse dot com” website @ novelmultiverse.com]
