Chapter 44: Under the Moonlight

Sa simula pa lang, alam kong hindi lang isang ordinaryong paaralan ang Montello High School. Nakikita ko ang angas ng bawat estudyante sa tuwing titingnan sila sa kanilang mga mata. Naroon din ang ideya na hindi mo basta-basta mababali ang mga pinaniniwalaan nila. The victorian-styled school held the strength that matched its students' fierceness. It was like it will never fall down. Instead, it was offering a challenge to enter and get lost. Well, in my case, I totally got lost. And by being lost I think I found myself. And just when I found myself, these rude people were trying to ruin it. And they were starting with the students.

Nakatitig lang sila sa cafeteria. Malamang kanina ay nakikita nila ang bawat kilos namin. Subalit ngayon ay nakapatay ang lahat ng ilaw sa loob, mas sila ang malinaw naming nakikita.

"They are creepy," mahinang sabi ng isa sa mga estudyante na nasa likod ko. Yes, they really were. The scenario reminded me of one of those creepy zombie movies. It was just that these guys outside, they were just staring. They were not moving or even doing any violent thing. They were definitely not after our brains. They were controlled and that was what made it creepier.

Wala nang muling nagsalita sa amin. Kahit ang mga paghinga namin ay pigil. Tila nakikipagtitigan rin kami sa mga tao sa labas... sa ilalim ng liwanag ng bilog na buwan. Mula sa nakatayong kumpol ng mga estudyante sa labas ay may kumilos na isang pigura tungo sa unahan, malapit sa entrance ng cafeteria. He was holding something like some kind of device. He was staring intently at us, like he could actually see us through the darkness of the cafeteria. But he couldn't really see us, could he? And by the lights of the moonlight, I thought I saw him smile. It was a malicious smile though and... well, there was something familiar about him. Although I couldn't recognize him as any one I know.

Van's response was immediate. In just a swift moment, he was already in front of me. What the hell! What was happening now?

"Oh my God! He looks like Andrew!" Mirden gasped beside me. And that was when it occured to me. Kung gayon ay iyon ang dahilan kung bakit siya pamilyar. May kahawig siya. He was from the Novou clan, the family who killed every woman in the Freniere family. Well, two women... but still...

"Is that Andrew's brother?"

"Iniisip ba niyang kasalanan natin kung bakit namatay si Andrew?"
