I heard that I’m super fierce - Chapter 47
Translator: NovelMultiverse | Editor: NovelMultiverse
In the dark bedroom, only the LCD screen of the TV was shining brightly.
The picture was in black and white, and it was flickering. The scenes flashed intermittently. Sometimes a woman combing her hair looked at the lens, and sometimes it was an eruption of a volcano, and the scene immediately turned into a few people climbing up it.
Originally, they were not sure about the contents of this tape, but now that Lin You has seen it, she knew that “The Ring” was indeed a big part of this instance.
Kayako, with Sadako’s videotape, simply made her twice as happy.
A weird image from the cursed videotape was playing on the TV, and there was another “gege” sound in her ears. Although Sadako probably wouldn’t come out directly, she would drag Kayako into the water. If the other party wanted to start, Lin You didn’t mind making the picture more exciting.
The card was already between her fingers.
In the darkness, Kayako twisted the nearly broken bones all over her body, and her complexion was pale, like a grayish-blue.
She stared at Lin You, grunted “gege,” and took another step forward—
In the next second, the big downy feathers hanging from Kayako’s head fluttered down.
The fluff fell down spinning in the air, and Lin You saw that it was still stained with blood. The blood-bathed Kayako had disappeared.
The ghost who marked others with a curse was marked by another ghost’s curse—it’s possible that Kayako wanted to kill her even more now, but because the videotape was here, she had to avoid it and couldn’t act.
Lin You calmed down. The video happened to be over, so she picked up the remote control to turn off the TV.
She was really generous.
Only the chandelier was turned on to light the room. After standing there for two minutes, and confirming that nothing would appear, Lin You waved and put away the card.
There was no movement outside the door, and it seemed that she was the only one who “woke up” and the others were still asleep.
Lin You patted the quilt and lay down again—she had to skip the time tonight and make plans for everything until tomorrow morning.
No dreams tonight.
Early the next morning, Jian Mingjia, who was awakened by the system, took a feather duster in her hand, swept all the cobwebs, and knocked on her door.
“Youyou,” she cried, “Lin You, are you up?”
Lin You was standing in front of the TV, looking at the videotape that was taken out of the machine in the light.
She was caught by Jian Mingjia who pushed in.
“You didn’t really watch it alone, did you?” the other party asked alertly.
Lin You denied it, “I said I wouldn’t watch it alone.”
Just as Jian Mingjia was about to take a breath, she listened to another sentence.
“—I watched it with Kayako.”
With a “click,” the feather duster fell to the ground.
The other three slept downstairs and had gathered in the dining room earlier. Players eat in the instance just like in real life to replenish their energy, but it is easy to maintain a full state, as a few slices of bread are enough.
There were bags of dried cakes in the refrigerator. Just after they were taken out to defrost, they heard footsteps on the corridor approaching again.
Jian Mingjia clapped her hands, attracted their attention, and then turned to look at the person involved.
Looking at the expressions of these two people, Gu Heng secretly thought that it was not good.
“Ah, it’s like this.” Lin You said briefly, “I watched Sadako’s video with Kayako in the middle of the night in a friendly manner.”
Geng Qinghe: “Wha—”
He was standing by the refrigerator holding a glass of fresh milk. He choked and coughed.
What kind of friendly manner? What kind of watching??
The people present knew how much of an overstatement those words were.
Lu Zhenjie was completely stunned.
“Isn’t it completely messed up now?” He originally thought that he would not see a worse ending where he would die today. “Aren’t we the ones who were affected by their fight?!”
The initiator spits out those two words casually.
Lu Zhenjie thought to himself that there was something uncertain.
“Kayako came to me in the middle of the night,” Lin You said, “I wanted to use the video to transfer the curse…to some extent, it was effective. Now Kayako and I have a curse for seven days on us, but there is something else.”
She looked at Lu Zhenjie.
“We were watching the original videotape, not a copy. So your deadline tonight should still be valid. Just take this opportunity to ‘convince’ Sadako to deal with Kayako instead—”
Lu Zhenjie: “…convince?”
Jian Mingjia: “…”
She knows her too well. The “persuasion” she spoke of was probably more than just talking.
“Convincing is one thing.” Gu Heng interjected, “Don’t forget that yesterday you said you would investigate the origin of this videotape. This involves the origins of this copy.”
This is true.
Lin You secretly thought.[Read this novel and other amazing translated novels from the original source at the “Novel Multiverse dot com” website @ novelmultiverse.com]
She had not given up the idea of receiving the card, and this was indispensable whether it was to finish the game with high evaluation or to really subdue Sadako.
The video store was open from 10 am to 4 pm.
Following the route marked on the mobile phone navigation, they soon found the shop a few blocks away.
However, what greeted everyone was a tightly closed and locked door.
“It’s impossible,” it was almost eleven when they arrived, and Lu Zhenjie was the first to have the unspeakable thought, “This boss has already…”
He made a gesture on his neck.
“…Could it be?”
Geng Qinghe stared at the phone he was holding in his hand, “I checked the reviews of this store. They say that it’s often not opened on time, and the boss should still be drunk, and has most likely forgotten the time.”
Lu Zhenjie: “…”
He felt that his feelings were deeply wasted.
They loitered in front of the store for almost twenty minutes and finally saw a swaying middle-aged man across the street preparing to cross the road.
Drinking like this during the day, he was most likely an alcoholic.
“Do you think it’s him?” Jian Mingjia whispered, seeing him walking in this direction. The idea in her mind became more certain.
…It should be.
As they approached, the other party also saw them.
“Hey, what are you doing standing there?” He was not yelling at them as much as he was yelling at Lu Zhenjie, “Didn’t I say that I didn’t know what was going on with that cassette? I didn’t sell yours!”
It seemed that the setting was that the original “Lu Zhenjie” had watched the videotape and came here to question it after he found it was wrong.
“Are you sure you haven’t seen it before?”
Lu Zhenjie himself was also good-tempered and wanted to pass the videotape over. “It’s your packaging. I read the courier’s note. It says that I bought it with the others.”
The video store owner eyed him suspiciously but didn’t say anything because of his tone.
He seemed to have sobered a bit and took the videotape from Lu Zhenjie.
Looking at it, he suddenly became a little embarrassed.
Everyone knew there was hope.
“It…looks a bit familiar,” the boss murmured, “I’ve probably seen it before, but as for ‘You will die if you don’t send it out within seven days,’ I really don’t know what to say.”
“There aren’t many people collecting videotapes these days.”
He scratched his head, “I only have two or three regular customers. You count as one, and the supply is not much. I only bought from a few places last week, and I picked what you wanted and sent it to you. This may be a mistake. It was mixed in with another box.”
Lu Zhenjie thought that he was really unlucky.
“You said it looked familiar, do you remember where you got it?”
“…Hakone,” the boss hesitated and then named the place, “I remember someone sold it for very cheap.”
Lin You: “Who?”
“I can’t tell you this. I heard that relatives had died and they dealt with what was left behind—”
Speaking of this, the boss was agitated and was completely sober.
“They didn’t die,” he looked at the tape, “because of any curse—”
Lin You thought that this was the point, but they couldn’t admit it either. However, before they spoke, the boss was already convinced of the connection between the two.
“It has nothing to do with me!” He took two steps back, denying hurriedly, “Don’t find me if you look for anyone!”
He didn’t want his store anymore, he just wanted to leave in a hurry. He trotted all the way as he walked, for fear that they might catch him.
Jian Mingjia: “It seems…it is necessary to go to Hakone?”
“It will take two hours to get to Hakone by car from here.” Lin You flipped through her cell phone, “It’s hard to find someone when we get there. It’s hard to find someone for a while—let’s book a ticket for tomorrow.”
“We can stay tonight and prepare.”
She said: “After all, there is a small problem that needs to be solved first.”
The minute hand swayed to the position of almost twelve o’clock, and Lu Zhenjie discovered to his horror that he was completely awake in the living room.
“Hey, hello,” he gritted his teeth, “Wake up, Sadako will be here soon!”
Geng Qinghe, who was sleepy, jumped up from the sofa, “Where? Where?!”
He shouted so that everyone else would wake up, and Jian Mingjia yawned.
“It hasn’t come yet,” she said, yawning, “No, it’s coming soon.”
They planned to go to Hakone tomorrow, where clues to Sadako could probably be found. But because of Lu Zhenjie’s curse, they first had to solve the issue with the videotape.
The second hand coincided with the other two hands—twelve o’clock in the morning.
On the seventh day, nothing happened.
The hands of the clock continued to move, and before Jian Mingjia could speak again, the chandelier suddenly went out.
After a while, the light bulbs slowly turned on again, but this time the lights were dim and it was hard to see the specific situation.
The living room fell into silence.
The videotape player that was moved to the living room did not react. No one moved the remote control, but the TV turned on by itself.
In the center of the screen, a dry well located in a field appeared.
The ghost in white crawled out of the well little by little, and she gradually moved closer to the screen.
The first thing that came out was her head.
Her long black hair covered her face. Her nails were falling off and her rotten fingers stretched out on the floor. Sadako stuck out half of her shoulder and began to crawl out with twists and turns.
“—Smash!” Lin You shouted.
She gave an order, and Geng Qinghe didn’t hesitate. Holding the hammer he had prepared in advance, he waved it down at the TV.
Suddenly aware something was wrong, Sadako suddenly raised her head.
But at this moment, things could turn around. Geng Qinghe swallowed and gave another blow.
He hit it twice and smashed a big, sunken hole into the TV.
The TV was severely deformed by his smashing. They only heard the crackling of the electricity. The screen was opened with spiderweb-like cracks, and the scene of the dry well disappeared. It was replaced by some smoke from the fuse.
Sadako’s body that was stuck in the TV—
Was immediately scrapped.[Read this novel and other amazing translated novels from the original source at the “Novel Multiverse dot com” website @ novelmultiverse.com]
