Part 2 "Teammates"
Humiwalay na ako sakanila. Habang naglalakad ako may narinig akong kaluskos na galing sa mga damo tapos bigla nanamang umalingaw ngaw ang nakakarinding boses ng Headmaster.
"What's up y'all?!! Ready for a new twist?!"
I groaned. This better be good.
"I put all of you in a team of six! Isn't that exciting?!"
"Now. You must ask a sage as a team. If one is a fake, you have to sacrifice one of your teammates. Remember, each member must be sacrificed. It's up to the last person to pick the room where the sage is. And if they got it right, their teammates won't have to play the next game that's going to happen right after this."
So. Instead of opening atleast five doors individually we have to sacrificed a teammate for each door we open?
Narinig ko nanaman ang paggalaw ng bushes at ang paglamig ng hangin. Naramdaman ko ang pagnginig ng mga legs ko. There's a ghost nearby. It's eyeing me.
"Holy Crap, death is on the way" tumakbo ako habang kinukuha ko ang kutsilyo para self defense.
"Why is there even a ghost in the middle of the field?" I swear. There is really a ghost that's chasing me and I think it's a boy. Iwinasiwas ko ang maliit kong kutsilyo at nakita ko ang paglaglag ng mga dahon at sanga.
Unfortunately, dumiretso ang paa ko sa direksyong kung saan ang gubat. At ngayon nagtatalon talon na ako kada sanga. Maymaya lang narinig ko ang malakas na kalabog.
I guess nahulog na siya. Wait pero diba, ang mga aswang ay magaan? Pero bakit mabigat ata ang nahulog na aswang? Oh well, as if I care.
"Ahhh, thank God that ghost fell... to the depths of hell I hope"
I took out my oh-so majestic phone because I felt it vibrated.

Could it be that my 'suppose-to-be-teammates' be getting this? Violet. Maingat akong bumalik sa field at nakita ko ang mga nakalinyang mga placard at may kulay dito na nakasulat.
Hinahanap ko ang purple na kulay. Because of my unbelievably unlucky power, I had to walk almost a kilometre because there's like about a thousand of placards. I waited for the other 5 to come. And the field slowly got crowded as time goes by. And it's really hard to look over people.
"Purple, huh?" sabi ng sa likod ko. Lumingon naman ako at nakita si Ivan.
"Violet?" I asked.
"Violet." He confirmed while I groaned.
He raised his eyebrows. Lumingon lingon ako sakaling hindi ako ang kinakausap niya.
"Are you talking to me?"
"Is there someone else in this area?" He asked back.
"I can't assume, can I?" tanong ko.
"Atleast you're not assuming. And don't act like we're strangers. 'cause it's really creepy when you talk like that to me" balik sagot niya. Aba't ininsulto pa ako ah.
"What a bully" I whispered.
"You do realize that this is purple, right? It clearly says violet in the email"
"Same thing." I reasoned.
"No, right now. It's not about what color is it but what the name is. If it's violet, violet. Purple, purple. They need half a thousand, so of course, they'll do anything that works."
