Izeiah's Pov 

"Students, it's almost the end of the month we're going to start next month's activity soon" The Head Master stated.

"At baka irush namin ito dahil malapit na ang full moon." He continued and left.

"What a pain in the butt." I muttered.

Wala kaming ginawa last month. Ang boring tuloy. Nagkasprain na ata ako sa pagkaikot ng ikot sa kama dahil sa walang magawa. Naputol na ata backbone ko. I'm like not really kidding, nagka stiff neck nga ako eh. Ang sakit tuloy lumingon lingon.

Kasama ko ngayon si Riley dahil sinabayan niya akong kumain kanina.

Tapos na ang mga loser's punishment, yung mga taong hindi nakaenter sa room ng wise sage. Minor game lang pala iyon. Wala nga kasi silang magawa dahil hindi nakadepende sa kanila ang schedule kundi kung kailan ang full moon.

At dahil wala pa sa one- fourth ng school ang nanalo ay kailangan nilang gumawa nanaman ng minor game. At lahat ng natalo doon sa pangalawa ay automatically na nasa Izeiah's Game na. (no students more than five lost, and I'm being serious here. Only around 3 students lost the game)

And the next one is like the main game which makes the minor game useless. I'm not sure when but he said we're going to do it around this month, a week before the Izeiah's Game.

"Any plans?" I asked Riley.

"Punta tayo sa tennis court?" suhestyon ni Riley. Does that mean I have to walk?

"Malapit lang dito." Sabi nanaman niya. Nabunutan naman ako ng tinik at agad na tumango.

"Fine" I answered

Habang naglalakad kami marami ang tumatakbo sa isip ko. Random thoughts to be exact. And I'm not sure but I was thinking about how the sianunang people didn't get any diesease or get disgusted with their uncooked meat. Like do they just eat it with skins on and not even clean it first?

Tumigil ako, linigon siya.

"Riley, I've always wonder about this but do the ancient people eat the pig with their skins on?"

"Do I look like a fucking caveman to you?" Nandidiring sabi niya. Napaisip tuloy ako that's why pinanlakihan naman ako ng mata ni Riley.

"Are you seriously having second thoughts about that?"

"You haven't even answered my question. Do they like cook it or just eat the pig raw?"

"Well, they didn't have a lot of knowledge back then but if they are above stupid, they can think of some way to eat the meat in some way to avoid food poisoning" sabi niya at napaisip

Wait

Baka nga nagiisip talaga.

Sabi ni Riley malapit lang daw ang tennis coury pero magiisang oras na kaming nagbababad sa araw hindi ko pa makita ang tennis court na sinasabi niya.

"Plano mo yata akong pagudin hanggang mawalan ako ng hining----" hindi ko na natuloy ang sinasabi ko dahil meron akong narinig.

"Alam mo, para kang magnet. Lahat ata ng gulo namamagnet mo." Sabi niya at nagready position. Dahil iyon napaisip tuloy ako. Hindi ko naman kasalanan ito. Blame the Robinsons. I was actually normal before I joined the clan and I don't regret being abnormal if that's what it takes to be considered as a member.

Naghintay kami na lumabas ang tao na gumagawa ng mga tunog na iyon pero wala kaya kusa nadin akong lunapit sa puno at sinilip kung meron ba ang tao sa likod nito.

Oh shit.

There's no man.

Oh gosh.

They're cute.

Oh god new born pigs.

But how though? Why is there a baby pig crowd here? Did they get lost? But I thought pigs live in the pig farm not in the wild? My mind is so confuse right now.

*Oink* *Oink* *Oink*

Unti Unti akong lumapit sa mga baboy. At nang makalapit na ako ay tumalon ako at hinuli ang isang baboy. I'm adopting this. He's so squishy and pinky. And fluffy. And cute too. Oh god.

I patted his head. Bigla bigla kaming nakarinig ng malalakas na padyak, yung animo'y nage-earthquake.

"Izeiah" Riley said nervously.

"Yow!" I replied back as I pinched the pig's belly.

"Zeiah, gusto mo bang ibaba iyan at well, kung hindi mo pa napapansin baka mga Ina na nila iyong ingay na naririnig natin?"

"No! Besides they're suppose to be oinking when they run."

"Fuck. Zeah, I'm begging you, ibaba mo na iyan please dahil lumalakas na talaga ang mga padyak."

"Pero ayaw ko nga. Let's take him wit--- Riley! Yung baboy!" Sabi ko kasi kinaladkad na ako ni Riley nabitawan ko tuloy yung baboy.

"Zeah, kaya mo bang maibigay ang mga bagay na kailangan ng baboy na iyon?" Malakas na tanong niya.

"What do you think of me?"

"Hindi. Dahil kailangan din nila ang mga Nanay nila dahil sa maraming rason. Para rin silang mga tao. Yung mga baboy, they need to spend quality time with their children because soon enough, their Mothers are going to the butcher shop to not get a makeover but to be chopped into pieces so we can have something to eat. That's why you can't take that poor piglet away from its mother." Explain niya at tumigil narin.

That made me think.

I never spent time with my Mom. Could it be I was taken away too? Napansin ata ni Riley na napatigil ako.

"Bakit?"

Umiling ako at walang imik na tumuloy na sa loob ng dorm. Hindi ko alam pero namalayan ko lang na nasa harapan na pala ako ng pinto.

Bumukas ito at tumambad si Ivan na nagtatakang tumingin saakin. Nagtuloy tuloy ako na hindi man alng siya pinansin. Umupo ako sa kama ko at huminga ng malalim at bumaling kay Ivan.

"Hey" malumnay kong sabi at ngumiti. Nagtataka man ay naghi siya pabalik at lumapit saakin.

"Is something wrong?" I asked

"Yes. Something's wrong with you"

"What do you mean?"

"You look, I don't know, pale? And you sound like you're mentally troubled " Sagot niya. Bigla bigla ko naman siyang liningon. At tumawa.

Mentally troubled, huh?

"My bad. Ren called me to drop by his place, I should get going now." Sabay kaming nag ayos ng tayo bumaba na ako sa kama ko pero sinalubong niya ako sa maliit na hagdanan at hinila pabalik.

Itinulak niya ako sa kama ko at pumaibabaw saakin. Naramdaman ko ang pagdiin ng hawak niya sa dalawang kamay ko na nasa magkabilang gilid ng ulo ko.

"What do you want?" Nagpupumiglas kong sabi kaya dumiin lang ang hawak niya. Hindi siya sumagot

"Look, if you don't have anything to say, kindly let go so I can get goi--" Hindi ko naituloy ang sasabihin ko dahil biglang lumapit ang mukha niya. Lumapit ito ng lumapit. I pressed my lips as tight as possible. He smiled.

He stopped and took a while to stare into my eyes. Then he planted a kiss in my forehead and then it moved to the tip of my nose.

I closed my eyes when he opened his mouth.

"Did you know I've been hit?" That made my eyes shot open. Finally. Merong nakascore. I wish I was the one who hit him though but still, it's still a lucky day.

"He was suppose to hit us simultaneously but he only aimed at me. Next time, though, I'll make sure you'll also get hit because he forgot about you."

Hindi ko maintindihan ang mga sinasabi niya dahil walang kasesense ito. So gusto niyang matamaan din ako dahil tumawa ako nung sinabi niyang natamaan siya? O masakit lang ang damdamin niya na meron siyang sugat at wala ako.

And what does he mean by he was suppose to hit us both but he forgot me?

I'm so confused.
