I heard that I’m super fierce - Chapter 44
Translator: NovelMultiverse | Editor: NovelMultiverse
Although Lin You thought she couldn’t personally understand SCP-096’s obsession with paper bags. this was not a bad thing—she will not be afraid of accidentally hurting herself by summoning it in the future.
She wondered since 096 has such a hobby, should she pay attention to any unique paper bags in the future?
When she raised her head again, Lin You found an exclamation mark notification on the screen.
In the friend list, the name of Jian Mingjia was lit, showing that she had been in the game for an hour and a half.
Didn’t this guy say that she was going to sleep until noon today—Lin You skipped the situation above, and sent Li Jing a friend invite.
On the other side of the screen, Li Jing, who was waiting nervously, saw the sudden pop-up notification and screamed subconsciously. As soon as the voice came out, she immediately covered her mouth and glanced to the left and right. Fortunately, this was the main interface where she was alone.
She suppressed her emotions and sent a voice request carefully.
—It went through.
“Sister You,” Li Jing looked back and forth and quickly found a topic, “Did you see the new announcement?”
Lin You: “…”
She really didn’t see it.
Her mind was focused on the cards she got. After all, two SR cards and one SSR card are a great harvest.
“Announcement?” she asked, “What announcement?”
Li Jing said.
“It means that they stopped running instances an hour ago, and then the maintenance will start after the players who are now in the game finish the instance…The estimated time is six o’clock in the evening.”
“What is there to maintain right now?”
Li Jing: “Maybe…the difficulty adjustment mentioned earlier?”
“It’s a really quick response,” Lin You shrugged, “One moment they’re letting us test it, the next moment they’re changing it completely.”
“Maybe they let us play with it first, and now have to verify it?” Li Jing asked, “Sister You, what are you going to do now?”
Lin You looked into the air.
“I can’t get online anyway. I’ll go to sleep for a while.” The overall process of the Kisaragi Station was not long, but the pace was too fast. She felt a little tired and wanted to relax at this time. “—By the way, I have something else.”
Li Jing: “…?”
“You said you happened to find the left leg, it was more than a coincidence. You didn’t have time to finish what you were saying then?”
“Oh,” she said. Li Jing also remembered that there was something like this, and she replied, “Because Xu Yan found it. I can’t say if it’s a coincidence or something.”
Lin You thought, why was it him again.
“Did he do anything before or after?”
“No, it didn’t seem to be special…”
Li Jing was a little unsure.
“I just said a few words to Brother Wang.” She said, “But at that time, I was dealing with Eight Feet Tall. I hid a little bit far away and couldn’t hear clearly—what’s the matter?”
“Nothing, I was just asking.”
No matter how strange it was, Lin You didn’t plan to delve into it. The instance was over, and it didn’t make much sense to grab a guy whose name she didn’t even know, someone she just knew a little bit.
“I’m leaving now, bye.”
Li Jing said goodbye to her in a hurry. Lin You sent a message to Jian Mingjia, and then really went offline.
When she ate, after having lunch with her family, she helped put the dirty dishes and chopsticks into the dishwasher. She said that she would go to bed for a while and to leave her alone at night.
“Look at how well you sleep.” Mother Lin nagged, “Alright, go then.”
Lin You yawned and went down for her afternoon nap. The room was dim after the curtains were closed, and it was inevitable for someone else to think of the crisis-ridden Kisaragi Station, but she had no such worries at all—not to mention that those ghosts that cast psychological shadows and traumatized others were more of the same to her.
She slept lightly until the familiar ringtone woke her up. Lin You touched the phone by her pillow and answered it before she opened her eyes.
“Hey, who is it?”
“Me.” The person on the phone seemed to think that her question was a bit weird. “Didn’t you tell me to call you when I can get online? Could it be that you slept until now?”
She seemed to have left a message asking Jian Mingjia to call her when that time comes.
Lin You shivered. She sat up and looked at her watch.
“Five thirty?” she wondered, “Isn’t it at six?”
“The maintenance was finished ahead of schedule.”
Jian Mingjia said: “The announcements have been posted. Someone posted on the forum, you can check it out.”
By chance, the computer was not turned off, and Lin You simply opened the web page.
“Right,” she asked as she clicked in, “What else do I want to say, didn’t you say last night that you wouldn’t play today?”[Read this novel and other amazing translated novels from the original source at the “Novel Multiverse dot com” website @ novelmultiverse.com]
“Work rest, work rest. I woke up early in the morning and remembered that I didn’t have to go to work, and I couldn’t sleep so I just played games. It was okay, I got an ‘A’ in the B-level instance, but that’s normal compared to you.”
Once in, there was a bolded update announcement.
It said that in view of the official internal evaluation and the results of this player test, certain adjustments have been made to the game balance.
A-level players plus ordinary players selected by lottery, a total of one hundred and fifty people, were assigned to participate in 15 instances.
Among them, a total of 17 people had survived to the end, and 5 instances were cleared to varying degrees. Except for some instances that had been upgraded slightly to S-level instances, the difficulty of A-level instances had been slightly reduced, and they will be open to players from now on.
All players participating in this test event will receive a reward package at nine o’clock tomorrow morning, but depending on the evaluation level, the value of the package was of course different.
On the forum, there was a constant voice of envy—even for a consolation prize at the beginning of the game.
“Go ahead,” Jian Mingjia asked, “Are you S or A?”
Lin You: “S.”
“I also packed a station.” She added.
Jian Mingjia: “…”
Wait, never mind the S-rating, what kind of ghost was a station??
“I have a hunch that if I continue to ask, it will ruin my gameplay,” she said after a few seconds of silence, “so I won’t ask anymore—when will you go online?”
“Go ahead, I’ll be there soon.”
After hanging up the phone, Lin You scrolled down two more pages. Now the most explosive topic in the forum was naturally the A-level instance.
It’s just that the group of participants who were the most active before the event may have been planted so badly that they did not reappear at this time. There were also people claiming to be one of the seventeen people posting to talk about their experience, and in just two or three minutes, they blasted through hundreds of levels.
Although she was very curious about the other instances, she could come back to see them.
Lin You thought as she exited the webpage. She wanted to quickly try the current difficulty, and it would not be good for people to wait for her for too long.
After she put on the game helmet, her consciousness returned to the faint blue space, and she almost immediately received an invitation from Jian Mingjia.
Geng Qinghe was already on the team. Even at Lin You’s level, she immediately entered the queue for cooperation mode.
MATCHING IS SUCCESSFUL.
YOU ARE ABOUT TO ENTER THE A-LEVEL COPY OF “NO SURVIVORS.”
Lin You: “…”
The name of this copy was [FLAG] too much, right?!
COUNTDOWN: TEN, NINE, EIGHT, SEVEN…
When the inorganic female voice counted to “one,” she was suddenly plunged into darkness. This time it wasn’t a deep sleep or whatever, and no matter how Lin You blinked, it was pitch black. She couldn’t even see her fingers.
“My God,” Geng Qinghe’s voice trembled, “Why is it so dark?!”
“Are you all there?”
Jian Mingjia didn’t sound too calm, “I just want to say, how come this is an A-level copy—”
The official announcement and her own experience were two different things. Even if there was a guy in the team who was an S-level that had completed an A-level dungeon, she never expected everything to come so off guard.
“I have a lighter!”
Suddenly an unfamiliar voice came in, “Do you have anything you can order?”
A cluster of flames appeared in the dark.
This little bit of light and shadow dazzlingly reflected the few people who gathered together. After their eyes adjusted to the darkness, they could vaguely distinguish who was who in the light.
The next second, only a loud noise was heard, and something was knocked to the ground.
Geng Qinghe: “What the fuck?!”
“Sorry, sorry,” the person who knocked the thing repeatedly apologized, “I accidentally bumped my elbow—huh?”
He bent down and picked up a candlestick. Although there was only a little candle head left on it, it could still be enough to light it.
“This should work.”
“Hey, that’s just right.” The teammate with the lighter also leaned forward and ignited the wick with the flame. With the candle lighted, the whole room could now be seen clearly, “Where is this…?”
At least one thing was certain.
This was definitely not an ordinary family.
They should be in the dining room, but the tables, chairs, and the dishes on the cabinets were covered with thick dust, and you could see that no one had used them for a long time.
What’s more, a few dishes had been broken on the wood floor, and the fragments had fallen into a spider web.
Geng Qinghe: “Don’t tell me this is a haunted house…”
Jian Mingjia: “…”
“It seems that there are only five of us?” The teammate who lit the candle with a lighter looked around and took the initiative, “Lu Zhenjie, please give advice.”
“Ah, good good.”
Jian Mingjia quickly introduced herself and said, “Everyone, let’s cooperate more.”
After all, the name “No Survivors” was just…
The teammate who discovered the candlestick on the wooden frame by accident laughed: “My name is Gu Heng.”
Everyone simply said the name, and Lin You also said hers. Everyone agreed that they shouldn’t stay in this place long—this gloomy and uninhabited environment was simply a template for a haunted house.
The room they were in was on the second floor. Walking down the stairs, the wooden boards that had fallen into disrepair for a long time made a creaking noise.
Fortunately, nothing happened along the way. When the door opened to welcome the sun outside, Geng Qinghe felt that he was alive.
—Until he saw the sign hanging on the wall.
His blood ran cold. He stammered and poked Lin You: “Sis-sister You…”
On the contrary, Lin You was a little disappointed because nothing happened: “Huh?”
She turned her head and looked in the direction Geng Qinghe was pointing.
One word was engraved on the door plate.
