I’m In Charge of SCP - Chapter 115
Will Smith adjusted the camera in an effort to make the picture clearer. He continued, “A week ago, we were ordered to go out on duty. When we arrived at our site, everything had changed. The world was no longer the same. Something extraordinary must have happened.”
“We broke out all the way and found this hole. This should be the entrance to SCP-1351. We plan to go inside it. No matter what we will encounter, it’s better than staying outside.”
The scene shifted, and someone appeared in the shot with a man in a white lab coat lying on it.
“This one of the doctors we saved, but he’s now he’s sick, and we have to cure him so that we know what’s really going on out there and why those people are like that.”
“Doctor, do you have anything to say?” Will Smith turned the camera to the Doctor. But because of the angle, it was impossible to see his face.
He struggled, and his mouth opened to say a few words, “The notebook… my… notebook…”
“Well, put away your damn notebook. I can’t even read what’s written on it!” Smith shoved away the paper notebook from the Doctor’s hand and said to the rest of the team.
“Well, let’s hope to God for our safety. Let’s go!” That was the end of the video.
“A doctor huh.” Zhang Jue muttered under his breath. He was a little helpless.
Why is it that wherever he is, whichever world he is in? He is always the protagonist that has been given a choice to kill God. As if it’s his face all this time.
So, it seems that SCP-3844 was right. This world is about to face a huge disaster. From the words of Captain Smith, we can learn that he and his Black Pearl team went out on duty, and when they returned, the world had already undergone a huge change.
They must have encountered something incredible. Otherwise, they would not have said that it was the end of the world. It would have been nice to get more information.
Zhang Jue had some regrets. It looked like the survivors of the Black Pearl squad didn’t know much about what was going on in their world either. But the good thing was that there were still three hundred years left. Not too long, not too short, enough time to do a lot of things.
After watching the video once more to make sure he hadn’t missed anything, Zhang Jue put the camcorder away and returned his gaze to the field of corpses. He had opened all the masks of everyone when he checked just now. There was no Captain Will Smith among the corpses, and the Doctor wasn’t here either.
According to the traces left at the scene, he could basically restore the situation at that time. These members of the squad, at some point infected with the virus. When they walked here, they suddenly fell ill.
Will Smith made an immediate decision to kill the sick squad members one by one. He leads the Doctor to escape from this cave. If he was right, the person Foundation rescued should be one of them.
How did the Foundation know that the cave contained important clues about the future that he did not know? Like the secret of his own identity. The Foundation always had another source of information for such matters.
Just like before, Zhang Jue sorted out the remains of several corpses, yarded them side by side, and bowed to them as usual. This time, upon entering SCP-1351, he already knew something that he didn’t know before.
There was only one question left, what was it that the Foundation was looking for? He already had a few possible answers in his mind, but he wasn’t sure about it. With this question in mind, he continued to move forward.
For a few more hours, he marched forward. When he came to a fork in the road, Zhang Jue suddenly stopped in his tracks. He frowned, and the cold hairs on his body trembled. This was an omen of danger. He could even feel the temperature of the ground is changing.
Suddenly, the ground trembled. It was not just a regular earthquake. It was something bigger. As the time passed, the ground shakes became stronger and stronger, as if some huge creature was approaching him.
Should I run or not?
Zhang Jue’s mind has not yet made a decision. His body had already run backward several meters. As he ran, he used his flashlight to shine on the path.
After seeing the monster, he could not help but suck in a breath of cold air. In the darkness, a giant snake appeared behind him. Almost as high as the entrance to the cave, just like a train, coming straight at him.
The giant snake kept spitting its body, and the saliva fell to the ground with a stinging sound. Apparently, it has a very strong corrosive effect.
Goddamit! What kind of creature is this?!
Not knowing why such a monster existed here, Zhang Jue cursed in his heart and immediately adjusted his body condition to the limit. At this point, if he ran a hundred meters, he could easily break the world record.
However, the giant snake was even faster, approaching him at a speed visible to the naked eye. Zhang Jue was about to fasten his speed until he suddenly tripped over a rock. His whole body flew forward and fell heavily to the ground.
Zhang Jue endured the pain and was about to get up and continue running, but the giant snake behind him stopped moving about four or five meters away from him.
The snake does not have external ears and a tympanic membrane, so it cannot hear a sound, and its eyesight is also very poor. Focusing on stationary objects is very difficult, but very good at detecting moving objects.
So, generally speaking, when you encounter a snake. First of all, do not panic and move. You’re fine as long you’re not hostile toward it, but it will attack you for the reason of self-defense.
Zhang Jue suddenly stopped not moving, probably making this giant snake feel confused. The snake also stopped its body and sensed the surrounding situation vigilantly. Zhang Jue lay on his back and took the opportunity to rest for a while but did not dare to breathe heavily for fear of disturbing the monster.
Zhang Jue now has a lot of skills, such as “Terror Projection,” “Mind Freeze”, “Paralyze”, and other killer abilities. But facing such a huge snake, in the case of his Reality Anchor is not working, he can only play dead. After all, he is not Able that could cut out a dozen meters of astral wind.
The giant snake pressed its head down and spat its tongue, seemingly searching for him.
Zhang Jue’s life was in danger, and he could only taunt it in his mind, “You can’t see me. You can’t see me~”
The giant snakehead slowly pulled away a minute later, seemingly giving up.
Zhang Jue was just about to relax when the giant snake instantly catapulted himself to the direction where he was with the speed of lightning. He didn’t have time to react at all before the giant snake swallowed him in one gulp.
