As I lay there at the concrete ground, I can sense footsteps coming over to my direction. I drifted my head to whoever is walking and saw a person walking and stopping as soon as they’re in front of me.
“Good, you’re still alive” I heard a laugh coming from her.
My vision was beginning to blur so I wasn’t able to take a definite look at her face but I still know who this she is.
I felt her tugging my feet and lifting it up, the next thing I know is that I was being jerked along the ground by my legs like a heavy sack of rocks, leaving behind a trail of blood coming from my head. I could feel every step the person took vibrate across my injured body, but I couldn’t do anything to escape, I could no longer move of my own accord.
We finally went inside the school building, leaving behind the dreadful storm, but it’s nothing different. I was still being dragged, inch by inch, across this filthy floor.
I can’t move anymore, so I lay there on my back staring at the ceiling. The closed lights on the ceiling spinning, moving in and out of one another. Alternating between hazy and distinct and forming spiral patterns in my eyelids.
But then, after for what seems like an hour to me, whoever is dragging me eventually stopped, threw me down inside a certain room and I rolled hard onto my face.
I got a glimpse of the dark room and somehow, I saw other people there. Hanging on the wall with their hands tied with a rope.
I didn’t get to scan the place completely as I was pulled up swiftly by my hair and placed on a chair harshly as if I’m nothing more than a rag doll.
“Ahh!” I scre-med in pain, feeling my completely twisted body gets more twisted as I landed on the chair.
“Shh shh.” The person hushed me as I felt a blindfold wrapping around my eyes and ropes being tied down on my arm and legs. I totally can’t move anymore.
“Now then… let’s do this slowly so you can feel every pain inching in your body shall we?” I heard a sound of something sharp coming from somewhere and the next thing I know is that I was being sliced on my legs.
I don’t have energy left in my body so no scre-m escaped my mouth as the sharp things made its way through my flesh.
I just sat there and accepted my death wh0leheartedly, I deserve this anyway…
I have sinned a lot that I can’t even count it in my two hands.
I don’t want to die yet without saying anything to this bastard so in my one last breath, I mustered up all my remaining strength and said the words in a soft voice.
Before my eyes completely darkened, and I felt my body become lighter to the point that I fell that I was floating.
Well… this is goodbye for me.
“Awww.” I said in dismay as I felt that my victim isn’t breathing anymore “You died so quickly, I’m not even finished with you.”
I stood in front of her, watching her miserable state that I can’t help but to smile at this sight. “Well anyway, you fell down from the second floor so it’s okay.” I smiled, placing the sharp knife I got from Lia on the table besides the chair where she’s at and began to untie the ropes and blindfold from her.
“Mmn” I heard from her mouth, I looked closely to her face and saw that she was still alive.
immediately went for the knife besides her, but before I could even reach it, she grabbed it before me and jabbed my stomach with it.
“Ouch.” I said in a screechy voice as I step back from her, she was still on the chair since she can’t stand or walk with that body of hers but she still gripped on the knife as if her life depends on it.
“Ha…haha” She even managed to choke out a laugh as she watch me bleed. “If I’m gonna die now… I’ll take you with me.” She said pointing the knife at me.
She looked as if she can easily kill me, what an idiot…
“Really? You think you can kill me huh…” a laugh escaped my lips as I looked down on my wounded stomach. The wound is definitely deep and might have injured one of my internal org-ns but I can’t feel any pain or anything at all.
“Do you think I look like I’m dying?”
I asked with a calm smile, and she was scared and confused at the same time on why I was still standing straight even though I have a non stop bleeding wound on my stomach.
“Wha…what?” Confusion was spinning in her eyes as she watch me walk back to her direction. “Ugh.” She gro-ned as I wrapped my hands along her neck, squeezing it throughly to the point that blood gushed out of her mouth.
She trembled violently, trying to push my hands away from her neck but she’s weak, and I’m far more stronger than her.
After a while, she stopped from moving, her hands falling down from my arms and her eyes froze in place while staring at me full of hate.
I let go of her and breathed out, pulling her body off the chair and tying her hands with a rope, hanging her helpless body on the wall together with everyone else. I’m sure all of them are burning in hell right now, since all these people are far more worse than me.
It’s great that I got rid of the other students, if they were still alive they’d be here watching this scene and taking a video of it, posting it on their social media accounts or whatever.
Anyway, I dont care. Since Jina is already dead, might as well go look for the next one.
But seriously, this girl sure is a pain in the neck, even managed to stab me before dying.
Not that I care, no one can kill me no matter what they do.
I’m already dead anyway…
I am now inside the security room trying to find Yooma through all the cameras, I have to warn her about ‘Young Ji’ at least.
While searching, I saw her at one of the cameras which is at the 2nd floor of the school. I immediately grabbed the broken pipe that I found at the locker room to at least defend myself and went outside, carrying my phone with me.
I tried to walk quietly as possible but I kept on accidentally stepping on the dead bodies making a ‘Squish Squish’ sound.
“Ugh… gotta buy new shoes after this.” I whispered to myself as I skipped through bodies from bodies.
I heard a sound as I felt myself bump into someone, I opened my eyes while rubbing my face and saw Fei.
“Fei, where have you been? Jina went looking for you.” I asked, grabbing both her shoulders.
She doesn’t looked like herself anymore and just kept staring blankly at me.
“Fei? What’s wrong?” I asked, and she suddenly erupted into crying.
“K-kelly… She jumped from the window.” She sobbed, covering her face with her palms.
“H-hey. Stop crying, nothing will be solved if you cry.” I awkwardly said, not entirely sure how to comfort a crying person who just witnessed so many death.
I patted her back, refraining myself from speaking since I know I wouldn’t help with my rude way of speaking.
From a far distance, I can hear a sound of footsteps walking aimlessly at the dark part of the hallway.
“Hey, Fei. I know you’re sad and all but we have to go.” I stated, gripping on to the metal pipe and trying to drag her from that place.
Fei just sobbed, determined to get left behind since she won’t move a muscle from her spot.
“Fei, let’s go.” I pulled more but she was resisting.
“No, I don’t want to go anymore. Leave me behind if you want.” She yanked my hand, and violently pushed me away from her.
“My God you’re annoying.” I whispered, cursing under my breath. “I hate to ruin your mood but apparently the killer is like 10 meters away from us and is walking to our direction. You can mourn all you want when we get out of here but now we have to go. As in now.” I said grabbing her hand and pulling her but still wont budge.
“Alright, you know what. Go ahead and die. Hey killer, this girl right here wants to die so you can go ahead and kill her while I make a run for it.” I waved at the silhouette who was slowly walking towards us.
“What are you talking about?” I heard a familiar voice as the person stepped into the dim light, revealing herself.
“Oh thank God it’s just Yooma.” I sighed in relief before glaring at Fei. “Hey, Are you sure you want to spend the entire time crying over there?”
“What happened to her?” Yooma asked, staring at Fei who is currently in a mental breakdown, hugging her knees.
“She saw Kelly jump down from the window.” I scratched my head in annoyance, I feel like I’m babysitting at the moment.
“Then she’s probably gonna kill herself the next 10 minutes.” Yooma sighed, walking pass us and looking at the other end of the hallway.
“Alright, obviously we all want to die.” She turned to face us. “But we all have to get through this.”
“Uh yeah, tell that to this woman.” I pointed at Fei, still sobbing nonstop.
“Shut her mouth before she grabs any unnecessary attention, for all we know someone might jump out and kill us.” She proudly said. “We have to get out of this place.”
“Yeah. Tell that to this woman.” I scoffed, pointing at Fei again. She clicked her tongue at Fei’s childish act and rubbed her temples, probably much more annoyed than me.
This wh0le talk about Fei almost made me forgot why I was trying to look for Yooma in the first place.
“Hey, Yooma. Young ji is trying to kill you.” I remarked, she doesn’t looked surprised at my statement just now.
“I know, but I don’t know why she’s doing this.” She suddenly became teary eyed at the thought of her best friend trying to kill her.
Great, another person crying.
I’m very awkward when it comes to being faced with someone who is crying so I just comforted her by rubbing her back in a circular motion.
“Everyones dead, and its all my fault.” She remarked, putting down her weapon on the floor. “I shouldn’t have let her die… I should’ve saved her.”
“What happened to Young ji? How did she die? I heard she was your best friend, right?” I showered her with different questions and she just nodded in response.
“I don’t want to talk about it.” She stated, tucking her hair behind her ears.
From this distance, I can smell a sweet scent coming from her, specifically a vanilla.
“You smell like vanilla, what’s your perfume?” I asked. Not the type of question someone would ask in a school filled with dead people, well at least I changed the topic since she’s gonna cry if we continued talking about her deceased friend.
“Oh, I don’t use perfumes, I got this scent because I always bake cakes.” She surprisingly replied like it’s nothing, sniffing her sleeve.
“I also baked cupcakes for my dad’s office mates this morning” She finally smiled. “I hope I’ll see him tomorrow” her smile soon vanished, maybe because he already misses her father.
She opened her mouth to say something but a loud thud at the end of the hall startled us, we stepped back far from it.
We both readied ourself to brace for whatever is coming.
“Get back.” She ordered, pushing me behind her as if I’m the damsel in distress and she’s the knight.
I did what she told me to do and hid behind her, pulling Fei with me while gripping tightly on the weapon I have.
I can sense the footsteps coming towards us in a slow pace, along with a scraping sound as if it’s dragging something.
“W-who’s there?!” I tried to make my voice firmer but I can’t help but to stutter knowing that whoever is walking towards us is about to murder everyone here, with each footsteps reverberating through the darkened hall.
“Whatever you do, don’t–” I heard Yoo ma yelped before she could even finish her sentence, a loud thud was heard after that as if she just fell across the hall.
“Tsk! Fei help me with this!” I yelled but Fei was already running away from here, still sobbing.
Oh my God what a traitor. I thought to myself as I pulled out my phone and aimed it to the person who just hit Yooma.
Revealing a girl, wearing the same uniform as us but her body is completely pale as if she just came out from a fridge, her lips bluish and her wrist covered in wounds.
She almost looked like she’s suffered a lot of painful events that made her look like this.
She stared at me before looking back at Yooma who was wheezing and slowly trying to stand up, then she looked back at me with eyed filled with sympathy.
She uttered under her breath, giving me a small smile.
My mind was in a whirl of confusion on why this girl– I’m guessing this is Young Ji– is telling me to run away.
I can’t possibly leave Yooma behind but if this ghost is telling me to run then I should run, or it’ll get angry for not obeying what it said.
So turning my body away, I began preparing to run.
But as soon as I take a hopeful step away from that ghost, I felt myself falling downwards as my head received a strong blow from something hard.
“He-help me…” I got cut off as I felt another strong painful s-nsation forming on my head.
I felt my body become numb as I lay on the cold ground while blood streaming down my head. I tried to force myself to stand up but I was pushed back on the ground by a single foot.
I don’t know if my vision is beginning to blur or swirl because it’s dark, all I know is that I’m slowly losing my consciousness.
“Well then, let’s end this quickly.”
I heard her saying a few more words before I felt another smashing sound on my head.
