I still hadn't fully recovered as my hands shook from the previous game. I sat on the stairs of the bunk beds with Sae-Byeok.

"Tch, only a single egg?" I heard her mumble under her breath, and I handed her mine. She didn't take it, and only looked down at me.

"You're shaking." She said, pointing to my outstretched hand. I forced out a laugh, trying to lighten up the mood. "The last game really stressed me out is all." I shrugged and she pushed the egg away from her.

"You're pale. You need to eat." She drank from her glass, and I slowly picked at the egg shell, before taking a large bite.

I was never really a fan of eggs, but who was I to complain when others just had been shot over cracked honey comb.

"By the way," I started, nibbling at the skin on my lip in nervousness. "Who was that guy from before? 219 I think it was?" I expected some kind of negative reaction. Maybe for her to close up on me, or yell at me for snooping into her business.

"When I used the bathroom with that other lady," she started, "I snuck through the vents."

"How?"

"A knife."

"A knife? How do you have-," her slim hands quickly covered my mouth to muffle any sounds.

"Quiet down." Her empty voice said and I nodded my head.

"I crawled through the vents and saw people melting sugar. He just wanted to know what I saw. Nothing special." She shrugged nonchalantly.

So many questions ran through my head, but I didn't want to bombard her all at once, so I just nodded my head.

As I continued to silently think, loud complaining was heard. I looked to the front of the room, to see a group of people in front of the masked people.

"You missed 5 people! Where's our food?" A lady yelled, and I creased my eyebrows. I felt as though there was never a moment a peace. Even during lights out, there was always trouble lingering. I didn't like it.

"We prepared food for the exact number of players." The masked person droned. I leaned forward in anticipation, curious as to what would go down.

"Then why don't you have any left? Give me my food!" The angry man stepped forward but was met with a gun to his forehead.

Sae-byeok quickly covered my eyes with her hand, as if this wasn't something I hadn't seen before here.

"Excuse me." I heard a feminine voice perk up, and I slowly removed Sae-byeok's hand from my eyes. "Those people. They took the food twice, I saw them."

I almost wasn't surprised. Wherever trouble was, 101 and 212 weren't far to follow. Neither was their group of cronies. They didn't seem to shocked that the blame was being placed on them, as the continued to drink.

The next minute or so was a blur. 217, the angry man from before stormed up to 101, pouncing at him for his drink. They continued to fight for a stupid drink before it crashed to the floor.
