I heard that I’m super fierce - Chapter 58
Translator: NovelMultiverse | Editor: NovelMultiverse
Sadako, who crawled out of the well angrily, was still pushing away her messy hair, watching her with her lifeless right eye.
One second, two seconds…
Ten seconds passed.
“If—I mean if, you want to hypnotize me.”
Lin You guessed what she wanted to do, “It seems useless.”
She hated her.
Lin You shrugged rather innocently.
Apart from healing and telekinesis, hypnosis was also one of Sadako’s superpowers. She can force the living to do what she wants them to do—for example, commit suicide.
This was mind control just like Tomie, and Lin You vaguely realized the determining mechanism.
The game can’t be a dead-end, and naturally, it won’t let them fall into a situation where they can be manipulated as soon as they meet her with no resistance.
Given that she guessed Sadako’s plan correctly, it was really an unsuccessful hypnosis; then thinking about Sadako’s character—it was very likely that she would pass a similar test of willpower, and the player must show that they are not shaken by spiritual influences.
“I thought it would be meaningless for the two of us to fight again,” Lin You said with a smile, “Do you want to get the place back?”
Sadako couldn’t see how many fluctuations there were, she just stared at her like this.
“I will create opportunities.”
Lin You said: “Let’s have you guys compete in fair circumstances, how about it?”
Sadako, who remained silent through all this, only moved her hand to the side when she heard the words, revealing half of her pale face.
Yamamura Sadako was indeed the same as others’ evaluations of her in the past. She was a real beauty. Even if she looked swollen and stiff from soaking in water for many years, you could still see her previous foundation.
She looked at Lin You sullenly, tugging at the corners of her mouth—the few invisible arcs could not be called a sneer.
The next moment, the latter looked at the new card in her hand and raised her eyebrows.
NAME: YAMAMURA SADAKO
CARD NUMBER: 013
REMARKS: SHE INHERITED THE SPECIAL ABILITIES FROM HER MOTHER AT BIRTH, AND MERGED WITH THE SMALLPOX VIRUS AFTER BEING THROWN INTO THE WELL. ALTHOUGH IT IS SR NOW, IT SEEMS THAT THERE IS STILL POTENTIAL TO WORK HARDER. I HATE ALL EXPOSED OR NON-EXPOSED WIRES AND KEEP AWAY FROM THEM EVEN WITH THE RIGHT PLUG. THERE IS NO WAY TO LIVE PEACEFULLY WITH CHILDREN, AND MY IRRITABILITY DOUBLES WHEN YOU MEET A PARENT WITH A CHILD (ESPECIALLY A WOMAN WHO IS NOT WELL-KNOWN). RECENTLY, I DON’T SEEM TO LIKE TO GET OUT OF THE TV VERY MUCH. AFTER THE SEAL ON THE WELL WAS OPENED, THERE WERE SO MANY MINEFIELDS—WHY?
Lin You: “…”
This was the longest explanation she had ever seen.
Yeah, why was that?
Having said that…she focused on the second sentence. What does “the potential to work harder” mean? Was it possible to upgrade?
Jian Mingjia came over and glanced at it with her flashlight, and couldn’t help but be speechless when she saw it halfway.
“…How do I say this,” she patted Lin You on the shoulder, “Sadako was really lucky to meet you.”
“On one side.”
Lin You adhered to the truth that even if she knew she was telling the truth, she would kill her and not admit it. She squinted at her and turned to look at Saeki Toshio who was still standing by the well.
He also heard what she had just said. He didn’t react much, perhaps because he firmly believed that the winner would be Kayako, and he was not worried at all.
Lin You took a deep breath and squatted down in front of the little boy.
“We are going somewhere else now,” she said in a nice voice, “Go back to find your mother first, okay?”
Toshio looked at her in silence, expressing his reluctance with his actions.
“You just helped me. If you want to see him, I will definitely let you see him.”
She persuaded him: “It’s not very convenient right now, but I won’t go back and forth—come on, pinky promise.”
She also knew what worked best for children. Sure enough, after hearing this, Saeki Toshio slowly stretched out his little finger and hooked it into hers.
This was a good deal. Toshios’s figure disappeared from its place. Jian Mingjia said “Ah, I thought you would take him with you.”
What they said in one sentence was really very complicated. It was easy to say, but in reality, it was not easy to do.
—They had to split up to stop the new Tomies.
“How is that possible?”
Lin You didn’t know whether to laugh or cry.
“If Kayako is called, don’t we just sit down and make sure that we are the ones who abducted her son?”
Jian Mingjia thought so too.
“Then, the next question—”
Lin You turned to Geng Qinghe and Gu Heng, “Which direction did you see him running in?”
The car full of the four of them drove steadily on the road again, until the edge of the woods could be seen faintly nearby.
Gu Heng stopped at the turn.[Read this novel and other amazing translated novels from the original source at the “Novel Multiverse dot com” website @ novelmultiverse.com]
“Two roads,” he said, “Should we keep going down this one, or go to the forest?”
Lin You absentmindedly agreed.
In fact, they could not guarantee that Lu Zhenjie and Tomie would be in this direction. There were many forks in the road, and the other party was likely to escape elsewhere, and now they could only take a gamble to see if he really went this way.
They were at a loss. It was still early in the morning when Lu Zhenjie absconded, and there were no passers-by to ask if they had seen him.
“Should we get out and have a look?” Jian Mingjia suggested.
With a few muffled noises of the car door closing, the four people scattered on the side of the road, trying to find the clues to his path.
Lin You flashed a flashlight, and the beam of light swept across the soil and grass. They searched very carefully, for fear of missing a trace.
“I found it!” Not long after, they heard Geng Qinghe shout from a short distance, “Is this it?”
Lin You was shocked when she heard the words, and hurriedly leaned over to take a look.
The mud here was soft, and there were two or three inconspicuous footprints in the circle he was pointing at, and the size of the foot was similar to that of a normal adult man.
The mud prints looked fresh as if they had just been left, and there was a little mud on the grass leaves that were stepped on. Looking at the direction, it should be a sudden change in direction halfway through.
“I remember he was wearing sneakers,” Gu Heng bent over to observe the pattern, and said, “Unless it happens that someone else passed by at this time.”
Several people unanimously unloaded some burdens.
—They guessed it was right.
The guy who belonged to this footprint had walked into the forest, and Lin You and the others followed the trail and pushed aside the branches in front of them.
The sky had lit up early, with a trace of red. The woods approaching early morning were full of moisture, and the footprints here were naturally deeper, making it easier to find.
But correspondingly, they also went deep and shallow.
This torture was finally almost over. The last branch was pushed aside, and their eyes suddenly opened up.
The footprints disappeared.
This was obvious—because one step further was the cliff.
“Don’t tell me they…” Jian Mingjia muttered and looked down. When she saw the traces on the beach, she couldn’t help but breathe in a sigh of relief, “My God, it’s really down there.”
This cliff wasn’t too high or low. Although the bottom was not rocks that will break you into pieces when you fall, if you jumped straight down, the rough and hard gravel must be better.
Gu Heng: “Use this.”
Lin You looked down and saw him throw a bunch of rope on the ground.
Geng Qinghe: “This shouldn’t…”
“Yes,” he said nonchalantly, “It was used to go down the well before.”
Lin You thought.
When she was negotiating with Sadako, he just put the piece of rope they used into his backpack?
With the thought of the rope going into the dry well that had been unused for decades, Jian Mingjia’s expression was also a bit subtle—especially after seeing the trace of the mystery substance rubbing against the edge—but now she could only bear it.
“I will use it,” she said with a grimace, “Who’s first?”
Geng Qinghe remembered something, and took the initiative to say: “You go first.”
“My dad…used to like rock climbing for a while, and I learned it along with him. I’ll help you by holding the rope on top, and finally, I’ll just go down by myself.”
“Oh?” Lin You raised her eyebrows, “You never told me this before.”
Geng Qinghe coughed wryly, “I’m afraid of ghosts and not heights.”
The other end of the rope was tied to the trunk, and Jian Mingjia, who was ranked third, stepped on the raised stones a little bit and hung off the cliff.
Lin You helped to remove the rope she was tied with. Geng Qinghe, who was left alone, took the hemp rope back and wrapped it around his waist.
His movements were obviously much lighter, and he stepped on the real place under the cliff in a short while.
Once they reached the beach, it was clear where Lu Zhenjie and the other had gone.
Not far from Linyou and where the party landed was a deep cave.
The footprints ended there.
Exchanging glances, they walked into the cave with flashlights.
The air in the cave carried a salty, fishy, peculiar smell like the sea, but it also contained another inexplicable smell.
Lin You covered her nose, and avoided the slippery rocks, so as not to slip and fall accidentally. The more they went in, the clearer the whimpering was echoing in their ears.
They deeply felt that they were also partly responsible for Tomie escaping, and when Jian Mingjia, who insisted on being in the front, saw the scene in front of her eyes, she muttered subconsciously.
A young woman was crawling on the spot where the flashlight hit.
—To be precise, half of one.
She rolled her eyes and kept moaning, trying to crawl among the rocks with her mutilated arms. The lower half of the body seemed to be torn apart, and the adhered skin and flesh were all torn up.
Not only that, but one side of her head also gave birth to another head.
And they looked like…
They were all the faces of Kawakami Tomie.
“How come…” Geng Qinghe was stunned, “What happened…”
There was suddenly the sound of loose stones behind him.
Lin You immediately turned around.
“Ah,” the man who stepped on the stones said with a smile, “I was found.”
“Look at what those two separated fakes are doing. Anyway, she will be burned in a while.”
At some point, the third Tomie leaned on her side—she had returned to her normal body, her dress matched her graceful figure, and the mole under her eye was so magical that they couldn’t look away.
She smiled and said, “If you are looking for me, I will be here.”[Read this novel and other amazing translated novels from the original source at the “Novel Multiverse dot com” website @ novelmultiverse.com]
