Someone pulled me by the wrist, dragging me away from the standing figure leaving her outstretched hand hanging. I shifted my head to see that Minho was the one pulling me.
“Hey!” I yanked my hand as we managed to exit the room and reached the hallway where everyone is at right now. “Why did you dragged me here?” I asked, and he looked at me with a serious look as if I just asked the most stupid question ever.
“Well it’s common sense to save a person who was about to walk into a cliff.” He crossed his arms, eyeing me to look back inside the classroom which I did and made my jaw drop in the spontaneous change in our classroom.
Half of the wall is gone, and the strong pitter patter of the rain washed the scattered blood on the floor, there were desks burning from the lightning just now and is still isn’t extinguished even though it’s raining. If Minho didn’t pulled me out of there, I would have been dead right now for falling off the edge.
But why did Young Ji held out her hand for me in that spot? Was she trying to make me fall off? I knew it… She’s mad at me.
“It’s kinda stupid to stay here with everyone else.” Minho suddenly said, again pulling my wrist and walking off away from the students who were traumatized by the event just now and was cowering on the wet ground. “And you’re hurt. We should treat that wound before it gets worse.” He mumbled, pointing at my bleeding arm.
“Ahh. I’m fine.” I mumbled but he wasn’t listening and kept walking. Even though I can’t see his face right now, I know that he’s worried about me based on his tone of speaking… But I shouldn’t trust him.
I swore to myself not to trust anyone right after Young Ji’s death, So I once again pulled my wrist off of his grasp making him stop and look back at me. “I think.. it’s better to stay with everyone else than roam around the pitch black hallways.”
He stared at me dead in the eyes, before agreeing. “Okay then, you should stay with everyone.”
“What about you? Where are you going?” I asked
“I have some things to do…” He mumbled, sheepishly scratching the back of his head. “Well, I’ll see you later.” He waved at me before slowly disappearing in the dark as he walks away.
I turned around and began walking towards everyone else, my footsteps suddenly slowing down as I noticed Hana grabbing a broken piece of the window with the shape of a drafting triangle on the ground and walks towards Irene.
Irene, however, was too busy tapping on her phone trying to contact her family to pick her up. Before she know it, her face was slashed deeply by Hana
She screamed in pain, dropping her phone and stumbling. Everyone also screamed in horror as they ran away to different directions, afraid that they might get hurt too.
“What the f–k!? Why’d you stab her?!” A guy in my class tried to disarm Hana but failed to since Hana immediately stabbed him in the stomach without hesitation. The sounds were blocked off from my ears, I wasn’t hearing the loud thunders or the pouring of the rain, my classmates loud screaming and their footsteps trying to get away from Hana. The only sound I can hear is that Guy’s constant gasping for air and Irene’s mumbling words as she touched her bleeding face.
“How dare you!!!” Irene managed to yell, her tears mixing with her own blood. But Hana remained silent, watching Irene helplessly try to cover her face.
She tried to push Hana away from her, but to no avail, she was the one who was pushed and landed on the ground soaked in that guy’s blood, splashing it everywhere and staining her uniform. Hana placed her foot on Irene’s stomach and putting all her weight on it so she can’t move around.
“Why are you… doing this?” She managed to choke out the words despite her jaw almost falling off from her face.
“Why you ask?” Suddenly, a thin smile crept on her face. Her pupils becoming smaller as she raise the shard she was holding, preparing to lunge it into Irene’s chest.
“Because It’s fun to play with you.”
As those sadistically playful words escaped from her mouth, she pushed the shard with full force on to Irene’s chest. Crimson colors splashed everywhere, bathing the whole place with a rustic smell of fresh blood.
I wasn’t moving from my place, standing frozen because of the scene I just witnessed. I don’t know what I should do next, but my legs know what they had to do and began running away from them.
As soon as I reached the end of the hallway and was about to climb the stair up to the 3rd floor, I looked back at them. Another lightning occurred, veiling the hallway with a faint light for a second.
I saw Hana, positioning the shard in front of her. The sharp point was facing her as she hold it with both her hands before piercing it deep into her chest.
After Hana’s body slumped on the floor, joining the other two dead bodies on the ground. I knew for sure… I knew that this is gonna be a horrible night for me and for everyone else.
