I heard that I’m super fierce - Chapter 79

“Uh, I still don’t understand.”
Geng Qinghe said as they approached the car.
The one they were going to drive was not the one next to the hotel, but the one he and Gu Heng had when they arrived. The latter parked the car in a hidden place after finding the secret signal.
“How is the knife dangerous?”
He didn’t see any magic power; he only thought it was an exquisite dagger, which might sell for a good price at auction.
Lin You paused.
“I don’t…understand it very well,” she said, “I just happened to have heard a little.”
Otherwise, she would recognize the dagger at a glance, and she wouldn’t need to rely on translation.
“Starting from the beginning.”
“Like the mother of Cthulhu, the black goat kid and these evil gods kill people as simple as crushing an ant, but most of them are not interested in this. However, Nyarlathotepu is an exception.”
Lin You said.
“He is keen to deceive and seduce mankind, and it would be best if he could bring anyone into despair.”
In short, he likes to make trouble.
“Nyarlathotepu’s activities spread all over the world. He became a variety of incarnations, the ‘Bloody Tongue’ of the northern United States, the ‘The Bloated Woman’ of Shanghai…He also appeared in Egypt as a pharaoh,” she pointed to Gu Heng’s backpack, “So there will be a pattern of an Egyptian holy bird on the knife.”
So far, the skull had been nodding vigorously to show that it recognized the accuracy of these words—it’s just that it was bumping up and down, and it was no different from its usual swaying up and down.
“Then, this dagger…”
“I know a little bit.” Lin You recalled, “If you use it to hit Nyarlathotepu’s avatar, you can destroy him, drive him away, and he won’t be able to reappear until he is called next time.”
“So, why do you say it is his token?”
Geng Qinghe blinked his eyes and asked blankly.
“In this way, that Nyar…shouldn’t it be destroyed by any means?”
“Yes, it’s a pity that it has a very special magic power. It is a double-edged sword.” Lin You replied, “The others used to make sacrifices, like this—”
She pointed to her throat and made a dash from top to bottom.
“Open the throat, cut it all the way to the end, and then dig out the heart. Those who accept this ritual will be sent to Azathoth, and then reborn as its loyal servant.”
Lin You shrugged.
“Nyarlathotepu’s activities are also to attract more believers for himself and the Azathoth who gave birth to him—the dagger can work very well. Among the most fanatical cultists, accepting this ritual is a kind of glory.”
When she uttered the word “glory” Geng Qinghe opened his mouth, imagining the scene of these people lying on the table and being cut apart.
“…Are they still looking forward to being dissected?” He finally asked.
He thought that Langton was so crazy at the time, but he didn’t expect that all the cultists in the world would be the same.
Lin You nodded.
How about this fanaticism.
“So, according to my understanding.” Gu Heng said, “Those who oppose Nyarlathotepu want to expel him with a dagger, and those who support him want to use a dagger to sacrifice themselves and pursue faith. Will both sides fight to get it?”
“And Nyarlathotep himself, he was afraid of it and wanted it.”
Lin You concluded.
“Anyway, as long as the dagger is in hand, it is a huge trouble.”
Geng Qinghe: “…”
He suddenly guessed how the client’s uncle died.
Behind them, Langton clutched his swollen face. He had been sitting sullenly for a long time.
Since they talked about the dagger, they regarded him as an invisible person. Of course, regarding someone—he glanced at Lin You silently, he wished that the other party would not notice him.
Otherwise, they still don’t know how bad it would be.
But seeing they were about to leave the matter behind, Langton had to clear his throat loudly.
He flinched unconsciously at Lin You’s gaze, but still stubbornly asked, “What about tomorrow night’s ceremony?”
Gu Heng: “Tomorrow night?”
Geng Qinghe noticed that there was not even a shadow under Langton’s feet, and suddenly remembered
Lin You only remembered that when she asked Langton, the two of them were not present. In these few words, he repeated those things he had explained, and as expected, the two men’s brows were frowning more tightly.
“What’s all this?”
Geng Qinghe murmured bitterly, “It’s the black goat and that Nyar…”
“Yes,” Lin You made another knife gesture, “Don’t forget that we are not all together.”
…He looked like he had a stomach ache.
“The summoning of the black goat kid is tomorrow night, and there is still some time.” Gu Heng thought, “Now it’s best to go to the client. If there’s still time, we might ask more clues from him, such as asking his uncle where he got this.”
Geng Qinghe: “…If there’s…still time?”
He had a bad feeling.
This hunch was immediately confirmed.
“You didn’t know the origin of this dagger, so you came to me directly.” Lin You said, “But think about it if his uncle was killed because of it, if those people came to his house, and they found that the dagger was not there—”
“Can you make a call?” She turned to ask Gu Heng.
“No,” he said, “I tried it before going out, but I couldn’t get through. Fortunately, I know where his address is.”
It seemed that now they can only pray that the client will not be killed before they rush over.
“Okay,” Lin You said, “We have to go back.”
What should he do here?!
“Don’t ‘wait’ anymore,” she interrupted casually, “We will be back, tomorrow morning at the latest. From now on, go find where they set the altar up, and remember to mark the way.”
Inexplicably, he was assigned the task. Langton’s lips moved unwillingly for a long time, and he didn’t dare to say half a word of protest.
Langton hung his head faintly. Lin You acted as if he agreed. She was the first to walk to the side of the road and open the back door.
Before getting into the co-pilot’s seat, Geng Qinghe looked back one last time and saw Langton wandering dejectedly. After getting in the car, he couldn’t help asking, “Can he find it?”
“Who knows,” Lin You raised her eyebrows, “We’re relying on fate.”
He must have been staying in this forest for a long time, but he didn’t even know where the altar was. It can only be said that he would be struck by luck and find it.
Lin You was very suspicious of his ability to do things, especially after discovering that he was splashed on the first summoning formation, and did not remember to do some waterproofing for the second time.
Look at the Slit-mouthed Woman. After her pair of scissors was crushed, she immediately learned from the pain, and prepared a full windbreaker—it was a ghost compared to a living ghost.
Anyway, she didn’t really point him where to find it, and in the worst case, he would ask someone for help on the way back.
She inserted a card into the card sleeve.
The car drove smoothly, but the speed was not slow at all. Gu Heng turned the steering wheel, and the trees on both sides of the road whizzed behind them. None of them spoke, only thinking about when they could arrive.
Lin You didn’t look at the watch, and she couldn’t tell how long it was. On both sides of the road, the trees gradually became more sparse. They had already driven into the edge of the city. Lin You looked back subconsciously.[Read this novel and other amazing translated novels from the original source at the “Novel Multiverse dot com” website @ novelmultiverse.com]
It was with this look that her movement stopped.
She slowly said, “Did you see it?”
Through the rear window, a black spot appeared in the sky.
This was just the beginning, and soon thereafter the second and third appeared. The three small black dots seemed to be constantly approaching, and they began to stretch and elongate.
The moment they saw their shape, an indescribable discomfort immediately enveloped the whole body.
They were three black worm-like creatures. It was difficult to describe exactly what they looked like—their heads were constantly changing and twisting, and there were appendages with huge hooks under them. On both sides of the body, rubber-like wings continued to flap, helping them to dive straight down.
Their goal was obvious.
It was them.
Lin You heard Geng Qinghe gasp, and Gu Heng stepped on the accelerator.
“We can’t go there anymore,” he said, “Let’s go somewhere else.”
They had already driven into the city, and it was too late to change lanes in a hurry. Seeing the guys rushing closer and closer, Lin You faced the rear window directly met a pair of eyes like vertical pupils—
The next second, the roof of the car shook heavily, and they only felt that they were shaking with the car.
The pedestrians outside were screaming. Gu Heng stepped on the accelerator and dodged the oncoming traffic as he drove through the intersection. As soon as he hit the steering wheel, his strong inertia slammed the creature that hit their car roof.
However, the good times didn’t last long. It was only half a minute. Without even breathing a sigh of relief, the other one ran into it with greater force than before.
Its paws clasped tightly into the roof of the car, and Lin You saw a small bump on the top of it. A second before the iron sheet was about to be scratched, Gu Heng repeated the same technique, and wanted to get rid of it by that method.
This time it was not so easy. They traversed three or four streets before drifting to force the poisonous snake with wings and claws to hit the tree.
Even in the car, Lin You was sure that she heard the cracking sound of wood. Looking up again, she saw the dense bulge above, which was enough to show that the opponent was only a little short of breaking through the car’s defense.
This obviously can’t support it.
She realized what Gu Heng meant by “Let’s go somewhere else.”
Sure enough, the car slowed down and drove toward the side of the road when it passed the next block.
“I’ll count three,” he said, “Rush in and lock the door.”
He was referring to a small building sandwiched between the shops facing the street. The first floor was the garage and the small door next to the garage. The second floor leading to the stairs behind the door hung the sign for so-and-so’s office—no doubt, it was run by the person “Gu Heng” knew.
“Give me the key.” Lin You said.
Gu Heng looked at her, and within two seconds, a silver light flashed across the air. Lin You reached out and grabbed the key he threw over and held onto the handle of the car door with her other hand.
It would be best if it could be removed, Lin You thought while looking at the air, but she didn’t have the one who could fight against it in the air.
If you have to say it, Alessa can count as one. But she didn’t know if this was just the beginning. If she used it this time, there would be…
So, if you can avoid it, you should avoid it.
She listened carefully to Gu Heng’s voice, and as soon as the word “three” was uttered, she immediately thrust open the door and rushed towards the office.
Behind him was the sound of opening and closing the car door, and Lin You couldn’t take care of that much. The snake-like creatures chasing the car undoubtedly noticed their movements, and their fangs and claws bit at several people at the same time.
Lin You turned in time, letting the fangs dripping with the venom wipe over her shoulders. Holding the doorknob, she quickly calmed down her emotions, and slammed it into the keyhole with accuracy, hoping to hurry and twist the key in her hand.
Finally, as soon as she heard the “click,” she jumped straight into the entryway and threw the key behind her back.
Geng Qinghe, the last to walk in, grabbed the keychain that slid into his fingertips. He was panting, and his fingers were shaking, and he had to press his shoulder against the door panel. The key slid a few times on the edge of the keyhole before finally inserted it and locked the door.
In the next moment, the entire door frame trembled with the violent impact. The shouts of the monsters outside were loud and harsh, but they couldn’t break through this security door for a while.
Lin You took a step back, turned her head, and stepped on the steps of the stairs—there was really not much space left on the first floor, and it was not good for them to squeeze in such a narrow place.
Gu Heng and Geng Qinghe rushed to the second floor behind her.
But once they saw the scene upstairs clearly, all three of them were taken aback.
Lin You hadn’t been here before, so naturally, she didn’t know what it should have been like—but she could at least tell from the reaction of the two of them that it couldn’t have been the situation where the drawers were all on one side and the documents were turned over in a mess.
However, there was no time left for them to think about what is going on.
They saw that the three-winged “worms” also noticed them, gave up besieging the iron gate downstairs, and went up.
Then, she faced them impartially across the balcony window.
Geng Qinghe mumbled something, but Lin You didn’t hear it clearly.
She pressed her hand on the cardholder, ready to act at any time. Because almost at the same time when it” was looking “at” them, their excited and sharp hiss seemed to vibrate the air through the glass.
Seeing that the monsters were about to flutter their wings and hit the French window—
The skull who saw these monsters in front of it suddenly remembered something and shouted: “Shine light on them!”
The effect of his words was too great. Lin You saw the emergency light kicked to the wall in the messy office of the office, “On your side!”
Geng Qinghe was the closest, and he crawled and grabbed the heavy lamp. The intense white light dazzled their eyes, but even so, he still tried his best to shine the light on the monsters from left to right.
The moment the light dangled, it seemed like the monsters’ lives were threatened—they left screaming. But after hovering in the sky for a few minutes, seeing that the light showed no signs of diminishing, they disappeared into the sky unwillingly.
It took another long time for Geng Qinghe to turn off the light, and his heartbeat was steady.
He noticed the skull’s shout, which meant it recognized it, “Do you know what that is?”
It just remembered.
It said briefly.
“Afraid of light, these few are smaller than ordinary ones, and it is estimated that they are not very capable…”
So it will be driven away by emergency lights.
“We wouldn’t have to run away if we knew this weakness…it’s a pity.” Lin You sighed, and she looked around the office, “If only there was a net.”
Maybe she could catch one or two with the light.
Geng Qinghe: “………………”
? ? ? ? ?
Boss, what dangerous thoughts you have, Boss?!
Gu Heng noticed something else.
“Do you know who they might work for?” he asked.
“This is hard to say,” the skull said carefully. “The hunters themselves will attack humans for blood, but sometimes they are driven by others—for example, it is said that Nyarlathotepu likes to use them like falcons.”
“If he uses them, that explains…”
Lin You looked at the messy office, “This makes sense.”
He originally wanted to find out where the dagger was hidden while they were away, but after turning everything over, he found nothing. So he sent his “falcon” to track it, and they chased it back all the way.
In silence, the long doorbell downstairs cut through the air, and everyone was shocked.
There were not many pedestrians on the road, and most of them are a few blocks away. They didn’t care whether the witnesses talked about the car and the monsters, but they didn’t expect that there would be someone so soon after the monsters ran—
Lin You turned around.
“It’s okay,” she said, “I’ll go.”
Who was knocking at this time?
All the way down the stairs, Lin You thought for a while, looking through the peephole.
She could see the person standing outside the door.
He was not very old and was closer to youth. His complexion was dark, and his smile was hearty. In terms of appearance, he was not uncommon; he was still the type that made people instinctively feel good and relax.
“Is anyone there?” he said in a friendly and brisk tone, “I have something to bother you with.”
Lin You was a little grateful that she didn’t use that card when she was attacked by the hunters.
Nyarlathotep has more than one avatar, and his most common human avatar was a dark-skinned, tall, and thin man with a hearty smile.
