I heard that I’m super fierce - Chapter 50
Translator: NovelMultiverse | Editor: NovelMultiverse
As soon as the well was opened, a strong and rotten smell that had accumulated over the years assaulted their senses.
Jian Mingjia, who was a medical student, was a little bit mentally prepared and well adapted. She was even holding her breath and turning her head away because she didn’t want to look there anymore.
For example, Geng Qinghe responded even more. He moved the slate and was out of breath. The smell hit him unsuspectingly. The next second he covered his mouth and plunged into the grass next to him. It was easy to get away a bit, and then he breathed the fresh air.
The smell was so awful that Lu Zhenjie couldn’t breathe, and he looked confused, “What’s that smell…”
“A decades-old rotted corpse.”
Although there should only be bones now.
Lin You took a few steps back and released the fingers that pinched her nose. “No wonder this is the case.”
“Then the question is this,” Gu Heng asked, frowning from a distance, “…Do we want to fish up what’s inside?”
It was immediately silent.
The well was made of cement and more than a meter wide, more than enough room for someone to go down. It was dark in the well, and the brightness of a flashlight was not enough to see the bottom.
The scent wafted out a little—it may be that they have adapted, but it was not difficult to imagine how strong the smell will be when someone actually enters it.
It was most likely that no one could stand it.
Lin You said “Well.”
…She thought she could try.
Two minutes later.
“After ten seconds, crank the rope,” Lin You said. “When it reaches the bottom, pull it hard, and then tie the things there to the rope, understand?”
The severed hand was leaning on the edge of the well with a circle of twine in its palm. Of course, it couldn’t smell the rancidity underneath, and it understood what Lin You meant, and enthusiastically responded with “OK.”
They found this piece of rope next to the trash can in the courtyard. It was estimated that the relative used it to tie things up when selling the belongings. It was just convenient for them at this moment. The twine was long enough, and it was strong even after pulling it.
The hand grabbed the end of the rope, and it leaped down gently, scratching the well wall a little bit, and quickly disappeared from everyone’s sight.
For the first ten seconds, the twine on the well shook slightly.
Two seconds, three seconds…
Geng Qinghe, who was weakly holding the other end, slowly lowered the rope, and couldn’t help but mutter.
“How deep is this?”
He said: “A dozen meters?”
The severed hand was only so big, but the speed of climbing down was not so slow. He felt it the most obviously because he was in charge of the rope, but he couldn’t see the bottom, this—
As soon as his thoughts turned to this place, he felt that the rope that had been steadily falling in his hand suddenly stopped.
…Did it arrive?
He waited with bated breath, but he did not wait for the “pull hard” that Lin You told him.
There was no movement for a few seconds, and everyone instinctively felt it was wrong.
“Pull it back!” Lin You made a decision, “Pull it up and we’ll talk about it.”
Lu Zhenjie decisively dragged it up with Geng Qinghe, without feeling the slightest resistance and weight in the process. He felt that something was wrong.
But when the two of them pulled out the rope and showed it to everyone, they breathed a sigh of relief.
At the end of the twine, there was no trace of the severed hand. The cross-section of the rope was quite neat as if it had been cut off.
But if they just cut the rope, they didn’t hear the sound of it falling into the water at all—God knows what happened to the things inside.
Lin You secretly cursed.
Jian Mingjia: “What should I do now?”
Breathing a sigh of relief, Lin You calmed down.
“Wait,” she said.
As long as it was not a devastating injury, when the time comes, or if it wanted to come back, it would naturally return to the picture book.
These two minutes were really difficult, and Lin You spread out the picture book. She waited for a while and finally saw a familiar card in the empty card slot.
The card surface had not changed, but this also meant that there was no way to know what happened to it in the well.
When such a thing happened, they couldn’t go down easily.
Geng Qinghe: “…Is it too late to plug this well now?”
“Should…” Lu Zhenjie pondered, “It’s too late.”
Geng Qinghe wailed and covered his face sadly.
“The moment we opened the stone slab was equivalent to touching the seal of Yamamura Sadako.”[Read this novel and other amazing translated novels from the original source at the “Novel Multiverse dot com” website @ novelmultiverse.com]
Gu Heng didn’t feel any guilt and made it up for him. “It’s useless to do anything now. There may be some way to find the bones.”
The problem was that they can’t even get the body right now.
“Should we go back to the hotel and see if there’s anything useful? We don’t have to tell the truth.” Jian Mingjia said thoughtfully.
Lin You thought it was really unhelpful and they could only end the matter. They could rely on more professional police tools and techniques to handle it, and then they would secretly solve the curse.
But this method was more risky and troublesome. For now, they should just follow the easiest and best way.
All in all, no matter which method they used, they had to go back to the hot spring hotel again—even if they called the police, they had to ask about the location of the police station and the procedure for filing a case here.
The return journey was much faster than when they were searching. When they returned to the hotel again, Jian Mingjia took the lead in opening the curtain.
“Hello, we returned—”
“Huh?” she said, “Where is he?”
During the off-season, business was slow, and they guessed that they were the only guests staying in the hotel. But even so, the boss had been guarding the door the last time they came here.
At this moment, there was no one at the front desk. They looked around and had to walk into the lobby themselves.
It was called a lobby, but it was really just a room connecting the corridors and the stairs at both ends. The hotel was small, at most, it was more spacious than the living room of an ordinary home.
“Do you think…”
As she walked in, Jian Mingjia’s expression became a little suspicious, “What’s that smell?”
Their noses had not fully recovered from the rancidity, but they listened to what she said, and then smelled carefully—
Lin You murmured.
“It’s the smell of blood.”
“Look,” Gu Heng squatted down in the corner, “Here.”
Where he was pointing, there was a series of spray-like bloodstains.
Is it possible that while they were gone there was a…murder case?
Thinking about this, Lin You walked straight along and saw some crooked lines that appeared to be from dragging.
The bloodstain dragged across the wall, and in a dim corner, a bloody severed limb was lying there.
—A section of the broken arm of a young woman.
“It’s really not time for you to come back.”
A hearty voice suddenly rang from behind.
Lin You was startled and turned back at the same time as the others. She heard Geng Qinghe whispering “what the fuck” beside her.
The owner of this hot spring hotel still had the same enthusiasm when he entertained them, but in stark contrast, his clothes were soaked in blood.
He was carrying an axe in his hand, and there was some flesh on the axe.
“I didn’t want to start so early, but when the killing urge came, I couldn’t stop it…”
“You, you,” Geng Qinghe stammered, “you wouldn’t kill your niece, right?!”
“Her? She’s not my niece, I just called her that!” Tsuchiya approached them step by step. The smile on his face was obviously neurotic, but his expression and voice were full of morbid enthusiasm. “But I love her so much, she belongs to me even if she is dead!”
“I could have done it perfectly. I didn’t expect to take a tool and then you would come back…I don’t want to go to the police station yet, so this way I can be with her forever.”
His voice sank.
“—So, you will all die here.”
What kind of logic is this!!
Lu Zhenjie reached behind him and wanted to touch the doorknob of the lobby, only to feel a gust of wind, and he reflexively pulled back his hand—
He realized that he was right.
The extremely sharp axe slashed straight on the doorknob he was about to grasp, and he was afraid that his four fingers would be chopped off in a second.
He hurriedly avoided it, seeing the axe slashing in succession.
Among them, there were no players who specialized in physical stamina. If they don’t move their hands or feet, normal people couldn’t beat a lunatic with a murder weapon.
“Go upstairs!” Lin You said, “Leave it to me!”
She had another chance to use the skill.
She hoped this time she could draw a card suitable for this situation.
Jian Mingjia screamed: “Lin You——”
She met her opponent’s gaze, gritted her teeth, and shoved the other three to follow her. At that time, Lu Zhenjie was still trying to help. Lin You moved faster than him. She rushed to the spot where he had been aiming at a few steps earlier and picked up the broken arm.
“Hey!” she cried, “Look over here!”
Her behavior immediately angered the boss.
He roared ferociously: “Don’t take her away from me!”
Lin You didn’t listen to him. She estimated the speed of his teammates going upstairs and decided to delay as much time as possible. She twisted the doorknobs of every door in front of her one after another and finally found one that was unlocked, so she ducked in and hid.
She still held the bloody arm in her hand, listening to the footsteps outside the door getting closer.
“Give her back to me…”
Obviously, the boss followed her in, and he squeezed a voice from between his teeth, “Tomie…my Tomie…”
Lin You: “…”
She immediately looked down at the broken limb in her hand.
The only good news was that right now there were no signs of regeneration.
She was very beautiful, but she was vain and arrogant, and she had a weird physique—people who are close to her, whether men, women, young or old, will always fall in love with her, and then will be inexplicably drawn out of their darkest desires, frantically trying to kill her.
But with the help of her severed limbs, she will continue to regenerate, splitting into many individuals, repeating the cycle of seduction, killing, and resurrection.
What the boss said may be true; he found the new individual and gave her the identity of “niece Lizi.”
However, he was obviously completely crazy because of her.
At the moment, Lin You thought to herself, it was better to solve him first than Tomie.
In the corridor, the Tsuchiya slowly stopped.
He had the impression of which room he had locked, and which room had only been cleaned and not locked—the other party could only hide here.
The door was locked.
He smiled sullenly, and slashed at the door!
After one or two times, the wooden door was easily cut by a sharp axe and made a huge gap, enough for Tsuchiya to see the target standing there with his beloved Tomie in one hand. His eyes became redder.
He raised his axe high and was about to completely open the door–
A hand came in and caught the force.
The axe was stuck between a thumb and forefinger, and it wasn’t injured and didn’t move a hair.
In the next moment, the person used their force to snatch the axe!
The boss was in a daze, and a bulging face appeared in the gap.
SMILE’s voice was rough, and raised the corner of her mouth stiffly, and tilted her head to look at him.
“A…smile?”[Read this novel and other amazing translated novels from the original source at the “Novel Multiverse dot com” website @ novelmultiverse.com]
