I heard that I’m super fierce - Chapter 97
Translator: NovelMultiverse | Editor: NovelMultiverse
Just like this, Lin You didn’t say a word in a daze. They were probably aware that she didn’t even say a word from beginning to end, and the eyes of the others fell on her somehow, seeming to be waiting for her to speak.
This was not good, Lin You thought, her thoughts are the same as Meng Shao’s. It was better if you didn’t attract the attention of others. This was the most convenient way to do this. One or two is okay, but if you are with many people who stare at you…then what else can she talk about?
A certain intuition was desperately ringing the alarm bell, but reason told her that it would be better to follow their topic. After thinking for a while, Lin You said, “Who are you talking about?”
Everyone looked at each other.
“What? Haven’t you heard of it?” The girl who led her over blinked, “Just the one that is famous on the forum?”
“It’s okay, not everyone that plays games is on the forum.”
Another teammate laughed: “I heard it from my friends.”
“I heard that there was a big boss recently,” he explained, “Her behavior was very hard-core and fierce. Ordinary people are scared by ghosts, but she can chase them all around. She also electrocuted Sadako, kidnapped Saeki Toshio, instigated a fight between Sadako and Kayako…It’s too miserable.”
Lin You: “……!!!”
Why did this sound so familiar?
Wasn’t it her who wouldn’t say it?!
How were these things spread, and even more exaggerated? She didn’t chase the ghost everywhere—although she wanted to try it, at least she hadn’t done it yet!
It may be that her expression was too subtle, and they saw that something was wrong.
“What,” asked the teammate, “Surely you’ve heard of it? It was pretty popular.”
“No, no, no.”
Lin You insisted and shook her head, again and again, thinking about how to pretend to be a fool to pass the test.
“I have never heard of this person,” she asked innocently, opening her eyes wide, “Who is that guy?”
She looked harmless, and besides, she probably hadn’t heard of this performance. The teammates couldn’t help but scream, but her question also caused their doubts.
“We can’t talk about this,” someone agreed. “It was ‘that girl’ because he joked that it was ‘that girl whose name cannot be mentioned because of the rules’, so I don’t know who it is, only that there is such a person.”
Lin You thought that she really appreciated the regulations.
“Anyway, as expected.”
A man wearing gold-rimmed glasses said: “I guess I will run into her sooner or later, depending on whether I can live until then.”
With a single sentence, he brought the atmosphere of their happy conversation back to the current predicament. The chandelier in the middle of the ceiling of the meeting room flashed a gloomy light, and the crowd was silent.
No matter how deliberately they were changing the subject, there was no way to ignore the fact that there were currently unknown monsters wandering outside.
In the worst case, they would encounter a highly dangerous SCP as soon as they left the room—or even if it was not safe here, they may be attacked at any time.
“I want to ask, is there a time limit for this containment breach?”
One of them said: “What kind of Foundation doesn’t always allow monsters to run everywhere, right?”
“The Foundation will send agents and mobile task forces to deal with the containment breach,” the young man with gold-rimmed glasses pushed his frames, “But it has nothing to do with us.”
“We are Class D,” he said, “We are expendable which also means that if the site goes out of control, these felons will be executed, lest they make the situation more chaotic.”
In other words, even if the agents who came to recontain those SCPs found them, they would most likely die here.
What the players had to do was also very “simple.” Not only did they have to survive in the pursuit of many SCP monsters, but they also had to escape this tightly closed base before the Foundation agents arrived.
“Goddamn S-level copy,” someone mumbled.
Although splitting up had always been a stupid practice that had been criticized in many horror films, it’s just that you can’t put all your eggs in one basket here.
After all, so many people were walking together, and if they encountered a monster with a powerful lethality, the whole army would be wiped out.
There were never many such monsters in the Foundation.
While they had decided on the course of action, Lin You was planning to take this opportunity to propose to act alone, and someone patted her on the shoulder.
“We are together,” Meng Shao said solemnly to her and to others, “Right?”
Lin You: “I—”
Just as she uttered this, she saw Meng Shao wink at her desperately, not afraid of eye cramps.
Lin You thought.
She understood. This guy was afraid that she would accidentally tell others about his identity.
It didn’t matter if it was convenient, but when it came to the person she didn’t want to cooperate with, this dear friend was definitely ranked first.
To find a way out of the base before the agents arrive, time was extremely precious. The groups of people left the conference room one after another. After Lin You walked for a while, she stopped walking just to see that there was no one else around.
She said: “You don’t think you want to go back with them, so let’s split up here and act alone.”
Meng Shao scratched his head.[Read this novel and other amazing translated novels from the original source at the “Novel Multiverse dot com” website @ novelmultiverse.com]
“How do I feel that the benefits are not simple?” He gestured with one hand in a deceptive manner, “Are you sure you don’t want to be together?”
Lin You said without blinking: “We are incompatible with each other.”
Meng Shao scratched his bald head again, wondering why this was related to the issue of physiognomy.
“Are you serious?” he asked in confusion.
Lin You guarded the picture book that hadn’t been summoned vigilantly. She didn’t know how far the other party’s career had been. What if he reflexively came here for a while and accidentally injured Chu Renmei, Sadako, Kayako, and Xue Yao.
At the corner, she directly chose the road on the left, “Bye.”
Meng Shao still stayed where he was in confusion, but he didn’t care, and then turned and walked in the opposite direction.
The two parted ways. After a few minutes, Lin You opened the backpack and released the skull which had been hidden for a long time.
“It’s really stuffy inside.”
It complained repeatedly, and then Lin You stopped him by saying “You don’t need to breathe.”
“It’s the psychological function,” it answered, “The psychological function can’t work!”
“Don’t blame me,” Lin You wandered through the passage, “There are so many players in this instance, and I don’t want to explain why I have a talking skull when I meet everyone.”
If she lost her horse, it would become even more difficult to distinguish her signature feature.
Lin You knew exactly what she wanted to do.
The Foundation was strictly hierarchical, and if you wanted to reach the exit, you had to pass through layers of agencies. Class D had no permissions. She needed to search everywhere to see if any superiors who fled in a hurry left their credentials.
There was another barrier in front of her.
Fortunately, this level did not require any authentication, so she pressed the button on the door. The mechanism made of titanium alloy moved level by level and closed behind her again. Lin You took a deep breath but was immediately stunned when he saw the stain on the corner.
She said: “I didn’t expect it to be so exciting when I came up.”
In its view, this is nothing more than a puddle of dirty, bloody liquid that soaked through the wall, leaving strange corrosion marks.
What’s even stranger is that the corroding sound was heard soon.
Lin You didn’t blink.
Now it was probably too late to run.
They—or she, more precisely—had been targeted.
The black mud spread from the pool of stains to both ends, the wall slowly peeled off, and a figure was passing through the softened wall.
It looked like a rotten old man.
He was naked, with mutilated limbs, and his smooth muscle tissue has an asphalt-like luster. The organs slid out of his tattered chest cavity, and black liquid dripped every step of the way.
Seeing the prey appear in front of him, he grinned broadly.
Lin You: “…”
Did uncle come out for a walk?
No matter how bad it was, she must first try to get out. She quickly turned around and ran away.
The old man followed behind her, keeping his distance unhurriedly.
“Who is this?!” The skull shouted, “The wall penetration technique is a bit slippery!”
Although knowing that closing the door would be futile, Lin You hurriedly pressed her shoulder against the iron door.
“SCP-106.” She gasped again and repeated.
SCP-106, the Old Man.
It usually appeared as a decaying old person, who could corrode any solids and pass through them, such as entering a wall and then leaving the ceiling. It has repeatedly breached containment, and his favorite thing was hunting humans between ten and twenty-five years old.
Lin You did not dare to act rashly anymore; she was silently counting the time. Ten seconds, twenty seconds, almost three minutes passed, the last door she closed had not been corroded like the previous ones—
She only felt a tingling on her leg.
Lin You lowered her head.
Grasping her was a withered and broken hand. The old man’s facial features grinned at her in the black mud spreading on the floor.
The hand tugged fiercely.
“Hey, little girl,” the skull cried, “Wake up, wake up.”
The weightlessness of the fall made her dizzy. Lin You closed her eyes and shook her head to try to relieve the dizziness.
Looking back, she could understand what happened.
The other party probably managed to get into the outer wall, and then appear on the ground after passing through the wall. This was also the reason why she felt that she may not be able to win because he had too many shortcuts.
Lin You saw she was in a little bit of light. She was dragged through the sludge-like liquid, and her faintly stinging calf seemed to be bleeding, but it didn’t leave a trace on her body.
“Uh—” The skull also looked left and right, but it looked at this dirty and darkroom, “Where are we?”
“‘The Pocket Dimension’.”
When it was supposed to be panicked, Lin You’s voice was calm.
“Or at his home. He likes to play with prey. After the first attack, he drags them in to play the game of ‘cat and mouse’. When he is in a good mood, he releases the people, and when he is upset, he tears them up.” She looked around. “But it seems that the person is not here.”
Right, there were so many players outside, maybe he wanted to catch a few more and come in and play with them slowly.
“I originally wanted to run as long as I could. He doesn’t like glare and lead, but without these, it’s not very cost-effective to face up. Since it’s still here—do you know why I didn’t call it just now?”
“Come, before he comes back.”
Lin You smiled and drew out the picture book, “To find a few more and see if they can tear it down.”[Read this novel and other amazing translated novels from the original source at the “Novel Multiverse dot com” website @ novelmultiverse.com]
