Translator: EndlessFantasy Translation Editor: EndlessFantasy Translation
It seemed that tonight was destined to be a night of online revelry.
In just one day, three viral videos have appeared, and they were all related to the scarecrow.
As soon as the third video appeared, many netizens immediately clicked on it.
[Scarecrow: Tonight is revelry time!]
Every time people watched a video of the scarecrow, they would be frightened.
However, this kind of excitement was still irresistible.
Moreover, such a title made the netizens even more curious.
What was this scarecrow going to do to catch people’s attention this time?
However, the people of Nord City who saw the video were not as excited.
[Shit, isn’t this f*cking Nord City?]
Some people recognized the location just from the beginning of the video.
Many residents of Nord City proceeded to comment on the video.
However, in the next second, the camera panned and rested on the scarecrow.
“Hey guys, let’s have some fun tonight.
“The first step. Let’s pick a lucky citizen.
“Who should we look for? Let me see.
“Bang Bang Bang~
“Let’s pick this driver.”
The scarecrow in the video had almost the same facial expressions as an ordinary human.
Moreover, when it spoke, it displayed a lot of emotions and thinking abilities.
It also had a wicked image.
The camera followed the scarecrow’s movements before turning to the front of the taxi.
In the video, the driver could be seen smoking in the driver’s seat and scratching his feet with his hands.
When he realized that the scarecrow was shooting a video, he immediately put on his shoes and tried his best to be polite.
[Hahahaha, this driver’s too real!]
[Look at his pretentious look, I’m dying of laughter.]
[Hey, how are you still laughing? This is the f*cking city where I live in!]
[F*ck, could this scarecrow really be a monster? I f*cking live in Nord, too!]
[Come on, the abandoned farm in the video’s just outside of Nord, okay? We didn’t even know that.]
The comments were clearly divided into two factions.
On one side, they were either foreigners or locals who were still scoffing at the ‘Scarecrow Incident’.
They did not think that the scarecrow was a monster. Instead, they were even more certain that it was all just a show after watching the video.
The reason was simple—the scarecrow was too ostentatious. Yet, it did not even attract anyone’s attention.
How could it be a monster?!
It must have been an ordinary person, and the video was edited with special effects.
Many had even found the Special Effects Wizard to fulfill his promise and leave the industry.
As for the other group of people, they were locals who had more or less believed in the matter, along with the more timid outsiders.
After all, the scarecrow had appeared in their city. The video made them realize that the scarecrow was likely to be nearby.
This fact accompanied by a terrifying figure made many people panic.
They gradually realized that the truth of the matter might be the very situation they were most worried about.
The video this time was longer, and it was still going on.
Along the way, the driver spoke with confidence, as if he did not realize the seriousness of the matter at all.
However, the audience could guess the general idea.
Whether they believed it or not, they guessed that the driver would probably die a terrible death in the end.
The difference was whether it would be a real death or a fake one.
The road in the suburbs was very dark, and only the headlights of the taxi provided visibility.
The driver pretended to be relaxed all the way, trying to make up a conversation. It was a sharp contrast to what everyone was speculating might happen next.
The more he tried to make himself humorous and interesting, the more people felt depressed.
Although the road was very long, the expectations formed by this contrast compelled everyone to continue watching.
Finally, the car stopped.
The hearts of the audience in front of the screens were in their throats at this moment.
It was coming!
“Sir, let’s reach…”
Before he could finish speaking, a black shadow flashed past.
Then, everyone saw the driver’s arm break off in an instant. It landed in the car.
Blood spurted out like a fountain, splattering all over the car window.
The impact of such a sight was undoubtedly very strong.
Some people among the audience even began to vomit.
Although they might have seen many bloody scenes in horror movies, the audience felt extremely uncomfortable watching that scene.
They even felt fear.
[Sh*t, could this be f*cking true!?]
[Why would YouTube allow such videos to be released!?]
[F*ck, I just vomited for the first time in a while.]
At this moment, no one in the audience felt that this matter was interesting or exciting.
No one continued to tease the subject.
The comments were now filled with fear.
On one hand, it was because this matter had appeared somewhere in the real world.
On the other, it was because everything seemed too real.
The location, the reaction of the characters, the severed limbs, and the blood suggested that it was all real.
It was hard for them to convince themselves that it was a special effect.
Blood was still spurting out, and the driver’s face was turning white.
Upon a closer look, the audience could even see that the driver’s lips were trembling slightly.
Immediately after, the driver’s face became distorted as if he had seen something terrifying.
This time, the audience felt that the driver’s reaction was normal.
Previously, when the driver saw the scarecrow get into the car, he did not even show a hint of surprise. Instead, his reaction was the complete opposite.
The driver began to beg for mercy and wail. However, the camera turned again, facing the scarecrow.
“Now, it’s time to party.”
There was a trace of perverted madness on the scarecrow’s face.
If this scarecrow had a human face, everyone would definitely think it was a perverted murderer.
However, the impact of this scarecrow’s face was even stronger than that of a perverted murderer.
This scarecrow was even crazier than a murderer.
It was even more dangerous than a demon!
Then, the scarecrow put on an elegant and happy look as he slowly opened the car door.
After getting out of the car, the camera turned again.
In the video, everyone saw the scarecrow opening the driver’s door.
In his panic, the driver forgot to lock the door.
However, that was not important. Everyone believed that even if the door was locked, it would not have stopped this monster anyway.
Then, they saw a straw arm reach in, grabbing the driver’s other arm to pull him out of the car.
In the video, the driver kept struggling, wailing, crying, and cursing.
But it did not matter.
The audience could only see that the driver was being dragged forward.
He left a bloody path behind him.
The backward view of them walking made people feel the helplessness of the driver even more vividly.
They could very well be the next ones facing this exact helplessness.
Fear enveloped the entire Nord City.
