I’m In Charge of SCP - Chapter 117
Zhang Jue is a human, not a god. Though, he is dull to fear emotion. But he would also be happy and excited. After going through many obstacles, he finally found his ultimate goal, and he couldn’t help but let loose and laugh loudly.
But God is fair and never lets a person be comfortable for too long. Just when he was finished with his laugh, a charming voice could be heard.
“Little brother, what have you found that makes you so happy? Can you show it to sister?”
What? Who? Me? What is going on?
The corners of Zhang Jue’s mouth twitched as he looked at the slender figure not far away.
“My lady, can you tell me why you always appear when I’m just getting started? Can’t you just let me be pleased for a little longer?”
Hearing Zhang Jue says that The Black Queen Alison hid her lips and smiled, “Little brother, I don’t know why it’s such a coincidence. It’s probably because we’re destined to be together.”
Zhang Jue hummed, “In this kind of situation, I’d rather not.”
Alison slowly walked towards him, and only when she got closer did she see the clothes on him.
“Hey, little brother. Since when did you go the sexy route?” she looked at Zhang Jue’s boxers and laughed, “I didn’t know you have a little bit of manhood.”
“It’s natural.” Zhang Jue said heatedly.
Although both of them were saying those seemingly borderline sexual intercourses under their breath, their attention had been on the package in Zhang Jue’s hand, not letting it a chance to slip away. They were both very powerful people, and they knew each other’s abilities without opening their mouths.
Zhang Jue wanted to send that black box into his Pocket Dimension. On the other hand, Alison was always on the alert for Zhang Jue’s movements. Once he made a move, he would be greeted with a long-prepared killing move.
In the cave of SCP-3844, the two had already fought once, and Zhang Jue lost. With the Reality Anchor already disabled, this time, it would be a nightmare to escape from Alison’s grasp at little cost like last the time unless he ventured into his Pocket Dimension.
Alison is a woman. Treat yourself ruthlessly and treat your enemy even more ruthlessly. The two just stood there, teasing each other, neither wanting to be the first to speak. But Zhang Jue’s shamelessness was innate.
After a few seconds of staring at each other, it was Alison who took the lead and sighed.
“Okay, I give up. Little brother, let’s make a deal. How about you show me what’s in your hand, and I’ll take you out of here?” This line was so familiar.
Zhang Jue hummed, “That’s what you said before you came down here, and you haven’t told me any valuable information now. You’ve already betrayed my feeling, and there’s no way I can trust you anymore.” Zhang Jue said while placing the package in front of his chest in a resigned manner.
Those who didn’t know really thought Alison had done something unconscionable to him.
Alison looked at him, “This is the Moebius Cave, and it is possible to gain information about the future of this world. That’s all I knew before I came down here, and I’m telling you that now.”
Zhang Jue had already known what Alison had just said, but it could also be proven that Alison had not lied to him. Zhang Jue looked at the black box in his arms. It had been corroded quite badly by the snake’s gastric juices, and there was no telling if the contents had been affected.
Zhang Jue weighed the pros and cons and then nodded.
“Good, since you’re so nice. I’d say this is a great deal!”
Alison breathed a sigh of relief. It was easy to talk to a smart person because you didn’t have to say anything more. He would analyze the pros and cons himself.
Although Zhang Jue was holding the most important thing he had right now, he had no way to go back, which was a fatal weakness. Alison thought she had read on Zhang Jue’s mind, but apparently, she had underestimated Zhang Jue’s choice.
Zhang Jue said, “But I still don’t trust you. You have to make a written note. If you lie to me, then you are a dirty dog.”
Zhang Jue covered his head and opened the already corroded package layer by layer under Alison’s watchful eye. Both were very curious as to what could be inside. When the last layer of fabric was lifted, the remains of a notebook appeared before their eyes.
Zhang Jue recognized that it was the same one that Will Smith had handed to the doctor on the camcorder.
How could it be here?
Since the package had been corroded through, the notebook inside was not spared, its edges had gradually carbonized and turned black, and only the middle part was still intact. Zhang Jue carefully spread it out on the ground and carefully identified the handwriting on the top of the notebook, but he kept his brows furrowed as if what was written on it was a heavenly book.
Seeing his strange expression, Alison also hove over.
“What is it?” Alison asked.
“As you can see, it’s a notebook.” Zhang Jue said.
Alison said, “But why can’t I read what is written on it? There is no that kind of language in this world.”
The headquarters of the Serpent’s Hand was in the Wanderer’s Library, which had all the information in the world. Alison was proficient in almost all the mainstream languages in the world, and she could recognize some of the not well-known languages at a glance, even though she couldn’t write them. But the words on this notebook were something she had never seen before.
“It’s quite normal that you don’t know.” Zhang Jue said, “Because this is not a certain language, but a code. Many researchers use those ways to record data that only they can decipher in order to ensure that their research records are not stolen, and they have gotten used to record everything they see in this way. If I’m right, this is one of them.”
Alison looked at Zhang Jue and smiled, “Little brother, can you decipher it?” Alison’s eyes could seduce any man in the world, and the average person would definitely be bewitched when they saw it.
Zhang Jue had some resistance to this and could be said to be oblivious to her tricks.
He waved his hand and said, “This kind of code usually has a correspondence table. As long as I know the table, I can give it a try in the effort of deciphering this writing.”
“What if there is no correspondence table?” Alison asked.
Zhang Jue shrugged, “Then I’ll just have to take a shit on it.”
Alison took out a dagger and waved it at her fingertips, “Little brother, I’m sure you have a way. Right?”
I don’t know if there is any justice, nor is there King of The Jungle Rule. Zhang Jue simply wanted to curse. But he knew that there was no heavenly justice or King of The Jungle Rule in this cave.
Whoever is the strongest they are the King of The Jungle.
Zhang Jue carefully flipped through the half-unreadable notebook while saying, “If there is no corresponding table. I do have my way to decipher it.”
Alison looked at him with amusement, doing her duty as a listener, and asked, “What was it?”
“In English, each letter appears with a certain frequency. As long as this notebook was originally written in English, you can find the correspondence between letters and symbols based on the frequency of each symbol appearing and compare the two letters to each other. You see, this word frequently appears here. It means it’s a very important thing to note, and we should check the rest.”
Zhang Jue crouched on the ground, studying the mysterious notebook. Suddenly, a gust of wind struck him, and he leaped backward almost as if he were a stupid enemy, managing to dodge the attack.
Zhang Jue fixed his eyes and saw that it was the giant snake he had killed before, which somehow regained its strength and attacked him with its tail. Luckily, he was quick to see the opportunity. So, he was able to save his handsome face.
Zhang Jue thought about it. But when he looked back, the sight in front of him almost made him burst with anger.
The notebook, which was already half corroded, was smashed to pieces by the giant snake’s tail—leaving only a pile of shredded paper flying in the air.
Zhang Jue was furious, and he pointed at the giant snake with his teeth gnashing.
“You insensitive long worm. Try to see if you could withstand that I’m about to skin you right now!”
