I heard that I’m super fierce - Chapter 45

Lin You murmured and repeated the surname, and Geng Qinghe’s face turned green again.
“It’s not the one, right?” He struggled hopelessly, “Quick, tell me it isn’t!”
A long and faint meow shattered his last illusion.
The black cat walked a few steps on the wall, his slender pupils watching them faintly. He suddenly jumped into the wall and disappeared.
Geng Qinghe: “…………”
He covered his face silently, and Lu Zhenjie patted his shoulder sympathetically.
An abandoned old house, Saeki, plus that black cat—
It’s safe to say that Saeki Kayako did not run away.
In that era when horror films were just beginning to flourish, she became one of Japan’s most famous female ghosts with a series of classic operations that left a deep psychological shadow.
Her husband Saeki Tsuyoshi killed her by domestic violence only because he suspected that she was cheating, as well as his son Toshio and the family’s black cat. After Kayako’s death, her vengeful ghost haunted the house before his death, going deeper and deeper, attacking everyone who stepped into the house indiscriminately.
In other words, no matter if you have done it or not, if you step in, you will die.
It didn’t mean they were safe now that they were out of the Saeki house. It was just the beginning. Kayako can chase them anywhere.
Not only she and her son, but the people who have entered here will also hold this “curse” together. After being killed by Kayako, they become her reliable helpers.
At that moment, everyone recalled the fear of being dominated by Kayako standing at the bedside in the middle of the night.
“I sense evil.”
Jian Mingjia muttered: “Come up and throw it directly into Kayako’s house. I’m afraid it won’t be cold enough.”
“There is one more question—how did you throw it away?” The teammate who claimed to be Gu Heng fumbled around on himself, took out a wallet from his pocket, opened it, and saw the documents inside, “The case is solved, it looks like is set at the university where the international student is.”
Lin You also found her residence card. Seeing that the remaining three people also found them, there was more speculation in her mind.
“It’s that kind of setting.” She said, “The same university and the same club, one day they suddenly couldn’t take it and ran to the famous haunted house to test their guts—”
“Generally speaking,” Geng Qinghe said dryly, “such a person will not survive half an episode in a horror movie.”
Given that he was talking about them now, his tone sounded particularly miserable.
“The big deal is to match the instance name.”
Gu Heng looked around. “I’m thinking about where to go now—we can’t stay at this door forever.”
This is true.
They were still standing outside the gate of Saeki’s house. Although they couldn’t escape Kayako, the danger here was undoubtedly doubling.
…Lin You always felt that this guy’s voice sounded familiar.
She couldn’t tell where she heard it, but when he said certain words, his voice and tone had a vague sense of familiarity.
She looked at Gu Heng unabashedly, and he, like Lu Zhenjie, had a delicate appearance. After sensing her looking, the other party smiled at her.
Lin You looked back.
“This…” Lu Zhenjie hesitated.
He slipped a bunch of keys into her hand.
“I found it with my wallet just now,” he explained. “I’m not sure if it’s the address registered on the back of this card. Why don’t we go check it out?”
There was no other way if they didn’t go. Only Lu Zhenjie among the five found the key on his person.
Looking at the street signs, “his” home was not far from here, and he managed to find the way back without even asking the way.
Standing outside the courtyard, Jian Mingjia joked: “This is pretty big, isn’t it?”
She joked that it was big, which is the general layout of a Japanese-style single-family villa, but it was a bit larger than the Saeki house they just left.
“Oh,” Lu Zhenjie also pretended to sigh, “I wish I could afford such a big house in reality.”
All the jokes stopped the moment he inserted the key and opened the door.
The air was filled with weird silence.
“…I have to say something,”
After a long silence, Lu Zhenjie felt that he needed to clarify his life state to the new teammates, “This is the setting in the game—I am definitely not like this in my usual life!”
Jian Mingjia: “…It’s okay, we understand.”
It’s not like it was a place where people could live well.
Boxes filled with courier slips were piled up at the door. Plastic bags were lined up in a row by the wall, and the trash was stuffed, and the protrusions were all in the shape of take-out boxes.
Before the door closed, Lin You saw that on the top of the door was a small cardboard box that was no larger than two palms, with the light coming through the crack of the door.
The express note posted on it was from a certain audio-visual store.
She wiped the cabinet next to her with her finger and concluded that the dust accumulated here was only slightly less than that in Saeki’s house.
Opening the door in front of the others as the owner of the house was a public sentence in a sense.
It took them a long time to find a place to go between the express boxes and the trash bags, and one by one, they walked into the corridor behind the entrance—although it was still messy, there was a bit more space for people to walk.[Read this novel and other amazing translated novels from the original source at the “Novel Multiverse dot com” website @ novelmultiverse.com]
“The water and electricity are normal.”
Trying to twist the faucet and power supply all the way, Jian Mingjia reported.
“Uh,” Geng Qinghe pressed the switch and watched the chandelier above his head flicker a few times and then light up, “The lighting is also normal.”
“Everything is normal—”
Gu Heng suggested: “Why not stay here temporarily?”
Jian Mingjia took a breath.
“There is no other place to go anyway,” she said, “But if you want to stay…I simply have to clean up.”
If you are chased in this house, it’s possible that you will fall over before escaping.
No one, including the nominal homeowner, opposed her opinion.
This single-family villa was divided into three floors. The top floor was the attic, and they found a utility room at the end of the corridor on the second floor.
Inside were brooms and mops and everything they needed, and there were even many different brands of cleaners. It was a pity that the original owner had no intention of returning them, and they were basically just opened.
Jian Mingjia estimated it was enough, rolled up her sleeves, and prepared to move out.
In the next room separated by a wall, Geng Qinghe made new discoveries.
He said, “What is this?”
Lin You turned her head when she heard the sound and saw him squatting in front of the TV, staring at the machine below.
“Cassette tape player,” she recognized the machine, “I don’t use it much now, it’s only for a hobbyist.”
“Oh…” Geng Qinghe replied. He fiddled with it and pressed the button that looked like the eject button.
A cassette tape rolled out slowly. After watching for a long time, he suddenly felt that it was a bit difficult for him to make a sound.
“Sister You…come here and have a look.”
Lin You walked over and watched Geng Qinghe take out the videotape. There was no label on the videotape, the only clue was the packaging on the machine.
But the words on the box seemed to be blurred by water.
“Videotape…” Geng Qinghe swallowed, “Right?”
God knows it wasn’t bad enough.
Who is as famous as Kayako?
Speaking of videotapes, and then looking at this TV—Sadako Yamamura’s name was very famous.
“What did you find?” Hearing their voices, Lu Zhenjie walked into the room.
Geng Qinghe: “This—”
Lin You: “We are discussing whether this is Sadako Yamamura’s videotape.”
Lu Zhenjie: “………………”
Lu Zhenjie: “?????!!!”
Saeki Kayako is hard enough to fight against, and another Sadako Yamamura made them doubt life. Especially after hearing that they had been found in a videotape recorder, his expression suddenly became very mysterious.
“You said,” he asked, “…Is it possible that ‘I’ haven’t watched this videotape?”
Lin You and Geng Qinghe glanced at each other, wondering if they should say that the possibility was remote.
They didn’t know if they could copy the videotape in this instance.
“It’s okay, you don’t need to say.”
Lu Zhenjie said in a disillusioned tone: “I’m sorry.”
When he came up, he was appointed as the first person to start Sadako Yamamura, and he was still quite arrogant.
“It doesn’t have to be Sadako Yamamura.”
Lin You remembered the courier’s note she saw when she first entered the door, “I saw a box at the door that was sent by a video store…maybe it was related to this.”
“You wait,” she said decisively, “I’ll go and see.”
In addition to the junk, the corridor was full of bottles and cans that Jian Mingjia and the others moved out. Lin You was already careful. When she walked to the stairs, her trousers still knocked some heavy bottles.
But this bottle cap was one of the ones that the original owner opened and didn’t re-tighten. The liquid in the plastic gushed out, ticking all the steps along the stairs.
Jian Mingjia immediately came over with two more bottles of detergent and was almost stunned to see this scene.
“I’m the scapegoat,” Lin You said immediately, “But the bottle cap was not screwed on properly.”
Jian Mingjia sighed.
“Well, I’m going to get the mop now.” She said, “This is floor wax—I’m going to throw it away with the trash at the door—it’s not easy to clean up. Wait, be careful when you go down.”
She turned and left. Lin You pondered for a while, holding on to the handrails to find the dry areas, and walked slowly down the stairs.
It wasn’t safe to clean from above. She went down first, and let Jian Mingjia throw the mop to her later.
The stairs were not close to the utility room, and there were so many things in the way. She had to struggle to get out, not to mention Jian Mingjia going by.
Lin You hovered under the stairs for several minutes, then looked up again, and suddenly saw the chandelier flashing.
She knew what this meant in ghost films, and after careful calculation, it had been a while since they came to this house.
It was about time…for Saeki Kayako to act.
Lin You turned her head abruptly and heard the weird sound from above getting closer.
The intermittent throaty noise was chilling, and the female ghost was crouching on the steps with her head tilted and poking out between the handrails.
Kayako’s limbs were strangely twisted. Her face was pale and bloodstained. She was looking directly at Lin You, and she climbed down one step at a time.
When half of her body was on the stairs, she suddenly felt some slippery liquid under her hand.
Before she could react, the palm of her hand slipped and Saeki Kayako was off balance.
She couldn’t get steady on the slippery steps with too much floor wax, and she unexpectedly rushed straight down like a rocket.
All the way down to the last step.
Kayako kept her face to the ground, motionless.
She didn’t want to look up, didn’t want to talk.
Lin You: “…”
If she said she didn’t mean it this time, would anyone believe it?[Read this novel and other amazing translated novels from the original source at the “Novel Multiverse dot com” website @ novelmultiverse.com]
