On the Phone
I want you to send this
video to him on the same day
Izeiah's Game will also take
I will come drop it off before
lunch tomorrow. No worries.
Did you get my instructions?
Yeah. Same day as Izeiah's Game.
Copy. Why does it have to be on that day?
It has to be on that day.
I'm leaving after it.
Is that so?
My time in this school is coming to an end. And I have to make sure everything will fall in the right places and then I will deal with Lothi if he manage to get out that is.
Malapit nanaman ang Izeiah's Game. And I'm still not sure how they are going to pick the participants. But that's not I'm worried about. My time is running out. I know that much.
Tumayo na ako sa bed ko. Nakita ko si Riley na nasa computer niya at tutok na tutok ito sa screen nito. Lumapit ako sakanya.
"Ano ba ang ginagawa mo at halos iglue mo na ang mata mo dito?" Sabi ko and bent over to see what she was doing. Nagulat naman siya at parang instinct niyang isinara ang computer niya.
"Jusko. Ginulat mo ako" sabi niya at hinawakan ang banda kung saan ang puso niya.
"Ano ba kasi ang ginagawa mo at nakafocus ka sa screen mo ng ganon?"
"Well, I was let's say "digging information" about the Empress." Naalarma naman ako. She's what? Stalking me?
"The Empress? The most beautiful, coolest and strongest gangster ever lived?" Tanong ko.
"Hahaha, oo, mukhang pamilyar karin sakanya ah?" Tumango tango ako. Ofcourse. I am the Empress afterall. Why else would I call someone the coolest if it wasn't me?
"I've met her a couple of times." Napatayo naman siya at hinawakan ang balikat ko.
"Ano?" She shook my shoulders and I was getting dizzy by it.
"Hindi mo man lang sinabi? Alam mo ba kung sino siya?" Sabi niya at inilapit ang mukha niya saakin.
A small scar near her eyes. I've seen that somewhere but I forgot where.
"Zeah?" Natauhan ako nung iniwagayway niya ang kamay niya sa harapan ko. Pinikit ko ang mata ko.
"Sabi ko. Alam mo ba kung sino siya?" Napaisip ako kung ano ang isasagot.
"I have a hunch."
"Who? Tell me." Sabi niya. I shrugged and shook my head. I am not about to throw some random names because it could risk someone's life or worse my life.
"I'm not going to tell you. Now, hands off." She pouted and turned away.
"I'm just joking. I'm actually blackmailing someone because they've been really mean to me"sabi niya at tumawa ng parang kay Ursula. Damn.
