I heard that I’m super fierce - Chapter 96
Translator: NovelMultiverse | Editor: NovelMultiverse
To put it simply, the SCP Foundation can be said to be a story for horror literature lovers worldwide.
After gathering many whimsical ideas, the setting was perfect, and a complete world system was gradually formed.
Under this virtual world view, danger lurked in people’s daily lives. People may be awakened by supernatural creatures or objects at any time. Sometimes it was a house, sometimes a monster, and sometimes just a teddy bear.
In order to protect the interests of mankind, the Foundation was born.
The Foundation was not restricted by any country but had huge human and financial resources. They dispatched agents to all parts of the world, with the goal of containing all anomalous individuals that would affect human activities.
The purpose of the Foundation was to control, contain, and protect. As long as it did not seriously threaten the safety of humans, they would be more inclined to contain anomalous creatures by effective means rather than execute them.
Contained individuals were sequentially entered into the Foundation’s roster and assigned a number “SCP-XXX”. Of course, the real fact was that fans, in reality, wrote documents of their fantasy monsters and submitted them to the official website. If approved, their ideas would be treated as official SCP products and entered into the database.
After gathering the inspiration of so many people, the Foundation story system now had more than 4,000 monsters.
It did not include those killed.
Being thrown into such a hell mode world was worthy of the S-level, Lin You thought.
Unfortunately, she was quite interested in this. Although she had not done it herself, she had also browsed many items and had a little understanding of the SCP Foundation’s settings.
Thousands of monsters were kept in various Foundation sites. Managing so many anomalous individuals—some of which may even cause the end of the world—was really not an easy task. Some creatures did not stay peacefully and would try to breach containment every once in a while. Given their destructive power, they may also cause a large-scale containment breach.
When she met the Shy “Person” and the Plague Doctor at Kisaragi Station, Lin You had a foreboding feeling. She felt that the game “Box” might want to throw in something to do with the background of the Foundation’s containment breach.
There was no doubt that since the name of the instance was “Containment Breach,” they must have not run away on a large scale this time. There was probably a problem with the entire site, but she did not know which SCPs were contained here.
After thinking about it, Lin You realized the biggest problem now.
—Her card slots!
She quickly opened the picture book to count.
Sure enough, there were a total of forty card slots, and 25 were filled, which meant that she had only fifteen empty slots left—
Damn. She closed the picture book with a “slap” and had to pick it carefully.
She heard the movement in her ears, not from outside, but from herself.
Even though her clothes were changed and her backpack was still there, the skull seemed to be a little dissatisfied that he was still locked in it.
“Quiet,” Lin You said unceremoniously, “Wait for me to see the situation before letting you out.”
The skull was quiet.
Putting away the incredibly stingy picture book, Lin You looked at her attire again, which was very familiar.
The settings of the SCP Foundation were supplemented little by little by numerous documents on the official website, which resulted in novels, games, and animations. Hers, Lin You’s, who twisted the corners of her clothes with her fingers, often appeared in it.
The management system was also important here.
In charge of the Foundation was the top council, including them, which was divided into five levels: A, B, C, D, and E. But the lowest level was not E-level, but D-level personnel.
They were generally death row prisoners who committed serious crimes. They were dispatched by the Foundation to maintain and even personally experiment with some dangerous SCP items. For example, they made a criminal who was a tattoo artist try to draw a picture of 096 from a photograph in a deep-sea submarine.
—Forty minutes later, he was angrily torn apart by SCP-096, who had dived into the ocean floor.
D-class personnel were defined as “consumable.” Even if they did not die in the experiment, they would be executed at the end of the month.
And now, Lin You knew that she had also become a glorious consumable person.
It seemed that the players’ settings in this dungeon were as D-class personnel at the containment breached Foundation site, and they depended on themselves.
Of course, for Lin You, this sentence might be replaced by dissatisfaction with life or death.
She looked around, as always, trying to find something that might come in handy.
Of course, there was nothing.
It was really impossible for the Foundation to leave weapons for the heinous D-class personnel, and even the room they were staying in was only four or five square meters in size.
A narrow single bed, a wooden chair, a flush toilet, and a standing sink were all she could see.
Perhaps there was something else—Lin You reached out and picked up the document on the chair. It was just a thin piece of paper, informing her that she had become a Class D personnel from now on, and gave her a number.
She didn’t care about this and finally turned her gaze to the iron door that blocked the cell.
It stood to reason that D-class personnel would be guarded very strictly, and they were also escorted by agents equipped with real guns when conducting experiments in the game.
But then again, it was in a safe situation, given that the entire base may have lost control now—
Lin You crouched down, buckled the gap between the iron gate and the ground, and lifted up with all her strength.
The Foundation’s technology was very advanced, and the protective door rose almost silently under her support. After barely holding a gap that was enough for her to pass, Lin You quickly bent over and swiftly rolled underneath.
As soon as she let go, the iron gate fell back again, dividing the two sides into completely different spaces.[Read this novel and other amazing translated novels from the original source at the “Novel Multiverse dot com” website @ novelmultiverse.com]
When the protective door was closed again, her vision suddenly dimmed. The light in the room was bright, but the corridor was dim.
This long corridor was supposed to be used to detain D-class personnel, and the people behind the iron gates did not know if they had escaped or were still trapped there.
There were too many cells; Lin You could not confirm them one by one. She was the only one in the corridor right now, and not seeing Jian Mingjia or Geng Qinghe, she could only hope that she could join them later.
As for now—
Card pool! She is coming!
Lin You still couldn’t figure out what terrain the site was on, so she had to walk forward sullenly. After taking a few steps through the corridor, she saw an extra shadow on the ground.
The same person in the orange uniform fell face down there, densely covered with ears.
Unexpectedly, someone would get cold so soon, Lin You thought, but it was not clear whether it was the player or the original NPC.
She was about to go around when she heard someone not far away gasped.
After hearing the reaction, Lin You saw a young girl who was also dressed in orange.
The latter originally stared at the corpse and saw her as soon as she raised her head, and couldn’t even bother to confirm who was on the ground. She looked overjoyed and hurried over, “Are you also…?”
Lin You: “A player?”
“Yes, right, let’s meet up.” The girl sighed and nodded quickly. “Everyone is waiting in that office.”
Hearing the word “everyone,” Lin You’s heart moved, thinking about how she might meet Jian Mingjia and the others.
Compared with Lin You who had been in the room for a while, the girl seemed to have been familiar with the terrain nearby. Watching the movement carefully, she walked forward and finally opened a door familiarly.
The office lights were brighter than in the corridor, but they were also limited. Seven or eight people had gathered sparsely inside. Seeing that the girl brought a new teammate back, they didn’t care too much, so they just looked at her twice.
“Where is Chen Cheng?” someone asked.
“Dead,” the girl said, “His whole body is full of ears.”
The questioner couldn’t help but curl their lips.
“I remember a bear was like this…” another person who seemed to know a little bit about SCP muttered, “It can make people be covered by ears and die suddenly. Did you meet that?”
Lin You looked around, but she was a little disappointed when she didn’t see the two people she knew well.
In that case, she had better find an excuse to act alone, and it was convenient to collect the card.
It’s just that…there were really so many participants in this copy.
There were ten in this room alone. Considering that she hadn’t seen Jian Mingjia, there may be more elsewhere. The participants may add up to more than Kisaragi Station.
It’s no wonder. It was an S-level copy anyway, and it must be easier to get out. If there were fewer people in line, they may all be dead in less than an hour.
This office should have been left by the researcher who ran for his life in a hurry, but it was picked up by them right now—the players standing there were all D-class.
Everyone was wearing the same orange prison uniforms, and the recognition rate suddenly dropped a lot. In this case, it was still a bit conspicuous to have a shiny bald head standing behind the crowd.
Although Lin You didn’t want to act with them, she was quite curious about the plans of these people and walked over to hear a few words.
“Praise the Buddha.” The bald head reflexively greeted after noticing that there were more people nearby.
Lin You: “…”
Bald head: “…”
The latter suddenly reacted to his failure, and Lin You also remembered the post she saw last time, “Could you be—”
The bald-headed man grabbed her sleeve, and quickly pulled her aside before anyone else noticed.
“I’m used to this setting myself,” he said, “This sentence is in my subconscious.”
“So you really are the one who practices religion in the post?”
Lin You curiously asked, “How can you get this ability?”
The bald-headed man sighed and waved his hand.
“I saw the post, and I didn’t expect someone to mention me.” He said, “I have an elder in my family who runs a temple. I stayed there when I was a child. I just said a few words after I entered the game as a reflex…”
“I had to shave my head and become a monk, and everywhere I went I had to wear kayasa robes,” the bald-headed—no, Meng Shao, said bitterly.
He was bald and became stronger.
“You have seen it too?” he said faintly, “This time there are a lot of players in this instance. I don’t want to be too eye-catching; I don’t want them to think I am an ordinary monk, so don’t say it out loud.”
It happened that a teammate heard them whispering and couldn’t help turning around.
“What are you two talking about?”
Meng Shao immediately said: “We were talking about the number of players in this instance.”
“No,” these words immediately evoked the sympathy of the teammates, “The lineup was very fast.”
“Hey? Me too!”
“I haven’t had time to ask, but were you all?” The girl who led Lin You widened her eyes, “Me too! I usually have to wait for a minute and a half, this time the matching time was a little uncomfortable. “
After being silent for a while, another teammate opened his mouth and said: “After the passing line is drawn, were all players above the passing line thrown into the S-level instance?”
…It was really possible.
“Isn’t there no upper limit?” Someone scratched his head. “I must have brushed it off. If only there were more powerful people around.”
Meng Shao quickly joined the conversation as soon as it was able to divert their attention, “Such as ‘that’—”
“‘That girl’?” the teammate responded enthusiastically.
“A mysterious person in the ghost world? I’ve read that post too. We won’t be able to see the big shot, right?”
Lin You: “…”
She stood with her arms on one side and looked to the left and right.
The question is, who were they talking about?[Read this novel and other amazing translated novels from the original source at the “Novel Multiverse dot com” website @ novelmultiverse.com]
