I heard that I’m super fierce - Chapter 95

Lin You didn’t even turn her head back.
With a “click”, she opened the iron lock. After pulling out the small key that was less than the length of a pinky finger, she slowly turned around and looked at the clown with a hideous face because he was carried by Nyar.
She deliberately didn’t fill it up when she pumped up the air. At this moment, the clown was a head shorter than her, and Nyar fit more easily. His legs were short and his arms were short, and he couldn’t even kick and beat when being lifted. But then again, with his courage, he probably would not dare to punch and kick a higher presence like a Cthulhu.
He can only let himself hang in the air, with a face so twisted that his nose was not a nose or an eye, and he stared at Lin You bitterly.
“What are you talking about, don’t be scornful. If you want to experience the feeling of the sky and the sun side by side again—” The latter was not at all shocked, and took the time to look at the night sky, “Oh, no, it’s the moon.”
“I caught him,” Nyar reminded.
Lin You tilted her head.
“Is there any difference?”
Nyar snorted. He narrowed his eyes and said nothing. It was ridiculous to let a Cthulhu talk about his relationship with humans, but they seem to be barely able to have a little alliance.
As far as Nyarlathotep was concerned, he only needed to know that he would always have fun watching this guy, that was enough.
Lin You opened the iron door. It was rusted badly, and it made a harsh sound when it shook. It sounded a little bit sore, and she pushed it aside quickly. Nyarlathotep walked through the iron gate behind her, and the clown felt his neck held by the collar in a daze.
“How, how about you put me down and I walk by myself.” His forehead was sweaty, and it was a miracle that the paint on his cheeks didn’t run off. “I promise I won’t run this time.”
“I don’t mind.”
Nyarlathotep smiled heartily, and he seemed to enjoy the timidity of the clown.
“It’s just a small effort.”
Why did he have to provoke so many guys! Why?!
No matter how regretful it was, it was too late. Behind the iron gate was a forest path. The late-night playground was enough to make your scalp numb, especially when the leaves that grew freely hit your face.
However, it was not ordinary people that were walking on the road.
The clown who was grasped by his collar bumped up and down, peeking at the reaction of the two people. Lin You was still normal, the guy carrying him was simply enjoying it.
He just felt like he was swinging forward and then stopped.
Ah, he thought, here it is.
“It is locked behind an iron gate,” Lin You raised her eyebrows, “Just to look at this thing?”
There was a small open space in the middle of the forest, and a statue stood in its center.
The statue carved out of marble looked like a man with a top hat on his head and a mustache on his chin. The statue was completely dark, and the snow-white flute he held by his mouth looked even more attractive.
Lin You suddenly remembered the sudden sound of flutes before the clown appeared.
A line of words was engraved on the base below the statue. She couldn’t read clearly, but Nyarathotep could read it.
“‘The Pied Piper of Hamelin’…”
He read it aloud with an accent and said, “Do you humans have any legends?”
Lin You paused.
“Yes,” she said.
“It is said that there is a small town that caused a plague. When all the people in the city were helpless, a piper in colorful clothes played his flute and took away all the rats. Afterwards, the residents turned their backs on him and did not want to pay him, and the piper used his flute to abduct their children in order to get revenge.”
Nyar sighed. Obviously, it doesn’t matter that humans were so entangled. His gaze shifted to the flute held by the piper statue, which was still interesting, and he took a step forward directly.
“Then what…” The clown said.
“What?” He looked sideways.
Clown: “You, please.”
It was estimated that even if he said it, the show-off wouldn’t care.
Nyar walked up to the statue, reaching out to pull out the flute.
The mutation happened in an instant.
Almost at the same time as his hand was touching the flute, the head of the statue was detached from the human form, like a giant python with an invisible face, opening its mouth and exposing its fangs to bite the hand—
Nyarlathotep didn’t even move.
Suddenly, the tentacles that emerged from his back were ugly and bloated, and the dripping liquid was black and sticky, and the lethality was not on the same level by just looking at it.
The python slowly retracted, and the one standing in front of him became the piper with a mustache again. The once terrifying statue bowed respectfully and handed the flute over.
Lin You: “…”
How strong was this desire to survive?
Nyar took the flute and threw it at Lin You with only a glance. The latter caught it well, but his eyelids twitched.
The flute felt like it was made of bones.
Simply put, it can be recognized at a glance that this was a human femur, presumably between seven and twelve years old. Lin You didn’t know this well, and she only looked at the skull, “Is this your bone too?”
How can it be!!
“This is for a little girl,” it said, “If my thighs were so short, wouldn’t they break?”
Listening to it, Lin You was taken aback.
She said: “The Pied Pipe?”
As soon as she spoke, a transparent window popped out suddenly.[Read this novel and other amazing translated novels from the original source at the “Novel Multiverse dot com” website @ novelmultiverse.com]
NAME: SCP-573 THE PIED PIPE
DESCRIPTION: A FLUTE MADE FROM THE FEMUR OF A GIRL A THOUSAND YEARS AGO. WHEN IT IS PLAYED, THE CREATURES WHO HEAR THE FLUTE WILL ENTER A STATE OF FOLLOWING COMMANDS EAGERLY, AND THEY WILL BE EAGER AND WILLING TO COMPLETE THE PERFORMANCE BASED ON THE INSTRUCTIONS OF THE PERSON. ORIGINALLY IT CAN ONLY ACT ON ANIMALS OR MINORS. AFTER BEING TWISTED, IT ALSO APPLIES TO ADULTS.
NUMBER OF USES: BECAUSE IT WILL GRADUALLY CAUSE IRREVERSIBLE NEGATIVE EFFECTS ON THE PLAYER, IT CAN ONLY BE USED ONCE
Lin You thought that she might have understood something.
This was also the same strategy of this playground, but if she was not affected at the time, it would not be used.
Now it fell into her hands and became a special item again.
“You—you got it,” the clown stammered, “May I go now?!”
He was put down when Nyarlathotep approached the statue, and besides, he was horrified by the latter’s tentacles, and his legs were trembling.
Lin You glanced at him up and down several times, and the clown couldn’t help trembling more under her gaze, “Where are your balloons?”
“I’ll give them to you, I’ll give them all to you!” he yelled hurriedly, pulling out a handful of balloons from nowhere, and stuffing them all into Lin You’s hands, “As long as you let me go, I don’t care about the balloons. All transactions in this playground can be transferred directly to you!”
He uttered every word from his heart, and the words “I’m begging you to let me go” were almost written on his face. When Lin You heard the second half of the sentence, Lin You’s eyes moved slightly, but she just nodded, and the clown who had received an amnesty turned his head and ran away, accidentally falling down.
Lin You: “…”
“I thought you would keep him, too,” Nyarlathotep said as he watched the clown who had finally gotten up and scrambled to flee in a hurry, “Don’t all humans have a habit of hoarding?”
Lin You chuckled.
“I’ll carry him too, okay?”
The clown can do everything that the Hanging Balloon can do, and the Hanging Balloon can’t do anything that the clown also can’t do. It’s also true to be afraid of comparing people in everything. What’s more, she really cared about his last words.
She let him go.
The balloon rose into the sky, making two turns before drifting further and further as if thanking her for giving him freedom until it disappeared into the night sky.
She cleared the game.
When her vision returned to the faint blue screen, Lin You squeezed the card in her hand.
NAME: SCP-823 CARNIVAL OF TERRORS
CARD NUMBER: 030
REMARKS: THE DESERTED AMUSEMENT PARK THAT HAS HAD TOO MANY WEIRD INCIDENTS. AS A SCENE CARD, CANNOT SUMMON IT DIRECTLY. IF YOU HAVE AN ANNOYING GUY, YOU CAN PULL HIM/HER/IT INTO TO ENFORCE THE GAME AT ANY TIME.
It was another scene card.
Lin You looked at the instructions on the card, and then looked at Kisaragi Station in the picture book. Finally, worrying that it was late, she had to insert the card into the picture book and hurry off the line.
She wasn’t lying when she said she had something to do. The next day was a birthday banquet for her family’s elders. The official “Box” also officially stopped the public beta in the afternoon and shut down the server.
Maybe it was too boring after the server was closed. After the text message confirmed that she had arrived home, Jian Mingjia called as soon as she could.
“I’m so bored.” Sure enough, this was the first sentence.
“Listen to yourself,” Lin You asked, “Have you played until the server was closed?”
“Yeah, otherwise, wouldn’t it be a loss if I can’t play in the next few days? I will arrange with Little Geng,” she said, “Ah, did you have anything to do the day you opened the server?”
“No, no, but you said you would look for an internship after a few days of rest?” Lin You hadn’t forgotten that she fired her boss.
Jian Mingjia: “…”
“Fuck that!” She gritted her teeth, “It’s a big deal to wait until school starts, there will be no classes then, so let me relax in the summer vacation.”
Lin You: “I think you are addicted.”
“Go, go, you are not qualified to talk about this. Okay,” Jian Mingjia finally finished the call, “Hurry up and play the game, we will wait for you.”
The rest time from the public beta to the official opening of the server depended on the game officials. In order to maintain the popularity and enthusiasm accumulated during the public beta, it will generally not be too long. “Box” hadn’t been out for a while, only three days, but this still couldn’t stop the players who were addicted to the game. But all of this had nothing to do with Lin You. Since the last time she saw her “great achievements” appear on the forum, she didn’t bother to watch the discussion. It was better to make up for more horror movies during this time—in order to better pass the levels.
On the day when the service was opened, early in the morning, Lin You turned off her alarm, yawned and washed her face, and then put on the headset for a while.
Generally speaking, the public beta was already a stage where the game was basically finalized, and there would not be much change. As soon as Lin You went online, she didn’t feel that the dark blue room in front of her was different from before, but a notice popped up on the screen.
……It was so long.
Lin You didn’t bother to look at it, and after closing out of it, she directly pulled Jian Mingjia and Geng Qinghe into the team.
“What did the announcement say?” she asked.
“Safety instructions,” Jian Mingjia has apparently read it again, “It’s not much different from the previous ones. They would like to thank the many players who support the game—”
Lin You fiddled with the screen to see if there were any new things. From the main interface, compared with the public beta period, the changes are not big, but small—
Lin You’s eyes are fixed on the available game modes.
Just as the discussion on the forum was so heated that it was almost a final conclusion, there was an extra line under the “cooperation mode.”
But it was still gray and unavailable. When it will be open, it is estimated that it will wait for the next official announcement.
Feeling a little sad, Lin You reached out and clicked on the upper row.
MATCHING IS SUCCESSFUL.
The system sound that was made in the next second made the three people who were used to longer and longer matching times stunned at the same time.
YOU ARE ABOUT TO ENTER THE S-LEVEL INSTANCE OF “CONTAINMENT BREACH”—COUNTDOWN, TEN, NINE, EIGHT, SEVEN…
Jian Mingjia: “S-level?!”
When hearing the name of the dungeon, Lin You’s heart trembled, but the countdown of just ten seconds did not allow her to think too much. When the synthesized sound counted to “one,” her eyes went dark, and when they lighted up again, the light of the chandelier hanging at the top of the room pierced their eyes a little.
Lin You lowered her head subconsciously.
Unlike any instance she entered before, she was wearing a set of slightly larger orange clothes instead of the default costume. On her stomach, she saw an icon composed of a circle and three inward arrows.
—It was the logo of the SCP Foundation.[Read this novel and other amazing translated novels from the original source at the “Novel Multiverse dot com” website @ novelmultiverse.com]
