Part 3 "The 1st Official Game"
"Now, drink" The headmaster commanded. They all drink it at once. In less than a minute. The students were struggling to escape. Some of them was wise enough to cut off the rope with their weapons but some of them just looks like their beyond mad.
Then the first gunshot was heard. Someone had died already. Their eyes were black. And their not even blinking. We saw a sword thrown and a girl was stabbed in her butt. Damn, that poor butt.
Maraming sigawan. Para silang nagrerebelde. Hirap na hirap parin akong pigilin siya.
Kinuha ko ang phone ko sa bag ko at tiningnan kung sino ang nagtext. Naramdaman kong nakatitig ang ilan sa mga studiyante na nasa gilid ko.
"May pato dito?" Sbai ng isa sakanila.
"That's your ringtone?" Tnaong ni Ivan. Lumingon ako sakanya at tumango. Ibinalik ko na ang tingin ko kung sino ang nagtext.

The Unloyal Butler:
I told you, Lady Izeiah. I did not emailed you anything. At bakit po naman ako magpapadala ng sulat na dalawa lang ang salit ana nakalagay dito? Pardon the lateness of my answer for your question but please consider that because of your absence, Lady Hina is handling all the Swift's Business again.
End Of Message
I frowned. Their totally trying to say something here no doubt. I mean, it's not my fault I was assigned this mission. I guess, I'm just that cool.
Nakita ko sa gilid ng mata ko ang pagtitig saakin ni Ivan at hindi nakalagpas ang mabilis na pagtingin niya sa kamay kong mahigpit na nakahawak sa isa. Ipinatong niya ang kamay niya sa aking mga kamay. Liningon ko siya.
Itinali niya ang panyo niya sa part na dumudugo. The handkerchief have blue flames. It's the mark of the Shikaikens. I looked up to him but he just smiled and turned his attention back to the game.
My eyes remained fixated to him. He glanced back when he felt that I was still staring at him.
Sumeryoso ang mukha niya at tumingin ng diretso saakin.
Sumasakit ang ulo ko sa pagibaiba ng kulay ng paligid. Berde paring hanggang ngayon hindi naito umiba.
Naramdaman ng Headmaster ang matinding presensya ng Robinson. Tumingin siya sa mga studiyante na nasa harapan niya. Hinanap niya kung saan nanggagaling ang presensya at doon niya nasilayan ang pagberde ng isang pares ng mata.
Nakatitig ang tao na nasa tabi ng babaeng Robinson sakanya. Si Ivan Shikaiken. Tumango ito sakanya at sinenyasan na lalabas siya. Na ilalabas na siya. Tumango pabalik ang Headmaster.
Nakita niyang tumayo ito at hinila ang babae. Ayaw pa sanang pumunta ang babae pero may sinabi siya na nagpasangayon sa babae. Sinundan ng maraming mata ang pares na papalabas sa arena. Nasilayan ng lahat ang berdeng mata ng babae. Ang babae na nangangalang
Zeah Robinson. Ang kaisaisang Robinson sa buong school.
Tinitigan ni Izeiah ang buwan. Hindi niya pa ito natititigan kahit kailan.
"It's pretty." She whispered.
".....but it's also a nightmare. A curse." She added. Tumulo ang mga luha niya. She's hurting but they don't know. They never asked if she's fine and she's fine with it.
Sumakit ng sumakit ang dibdib niya. Palaging ganito. She would hurt in the inside and no one will ever bother to see if the smile she's giving them was ever real. The demon inside her would hurt her and she would cry and cry and no one would hear her agony.
She started saying things that are quiet alien to her.
"It's already night time."
And he would respond.
"Yes, the stars are really grand tonight."
"He was staring at me."
"Who? Who was staring at you?"
"It's been a thousand years"
"Have you waited that long?"
A second later, Ivan's eyes turn to blue. She was mesmerized. She tried to reach for them but for some reason she can't. They're unreachable.
"I like your eyes. Can you keep them like that for eternity?"
"Eternity won't exist in my story."
"It's beautiful, though."
Then they heard it. The last cry. The game was finished. It's time for them to go back.
...and yet there was no one worth coming back for. They've all gone mad. The last one killed himself for he craves more blood but no one is there to kill. He had no choice.
"The first Izeiah's Game is done. Time to choose the next participants."
