We all walked through the colourful room, silence engulfing us. There were only 4 people left; Sae-byeok, Gi-hun and Sang-woo. At this point I didn't care if I won or not, I just wanted to go home. I missed my parents so much, and my welcoming bed. If I didn't win, my parents would never know what happened to me, assuming I got involved with a gang or ran away. 

We made it back to the main room, and I saw that all 4 beds were spread out, each in their own corners. I zipped up my jacket as I limped over to my bed. I was shaking until I heard footsteps behind me. I felt a hand on my shoulder, before I was pulled to face Sae-byeok. 

"Y/n. Y/n?" She called out. I didn't answer, and just continued to stare at her face, before I felt my bottom lip tremble. She worriedly looked at me, wiping the blood off of my face. "Are you okay? You aren't hurt, are you?" She pressed and I shook my head, wiping away my tears. 

"I'm fine, can you just stay with me tonight?" I asked, gesturing to my bed. She nodded her head before ruffling my hair. 

"I told you you'd be fine, didn't I?"

Sae-byeok and I both silently sat on my bed. I had my head on her shoulder, as I clasped my shaking hands together, before she placed her hand over mine. I felt my eyes grow droopy due to exhaustion before the staff filed into our room.

"Congratulations for successfully making it through the first five games." One spoke, while 4 others stood behind them, holding boxes in their hands. 

"You four are now the finalists, and a such we have prepared a special gift for each of you. Before we reveal the gifts, please take a moment to change in the clothing we have brought."

I told Sae-byeok to wait for me outside the bathroom while I changed. I slowly took off my jacket, and then my shirt. I let out shaky breaths when my eyes met with the large piece of glass sticking out of my lower stomach. I shakily grabbed onto it, before quickly ripping it out from me. 

Blood splattered on the floor, only adding to the puddles surrounding me. I grabbed a handful of tissues in my hand before pressing it up against the wound. If I kept it here and rested for a bit, I would be fine.
