A/N:

I've made myself a bed at the bottom of the blackest hole. And convinced myself that it's not the reason I don't see the sun anymore.

So... I can't say that I'm already fine, but I surely will get better. I was just that lonely that I thought I could die. Anyway, if you do like how Montello High goes, you're welcome to like the Facebook fan page and join the group. I'm always reading discussions in there.

Chapter 19: Waging Conflict with the Gods

I was wandering about how everything would turn out. Will I be able to save this stupid Mirden? Will I be able to save myself? Are we going to make it out alive? Will all our plans work out? This is a suicide subalit handa na akong suungin ang anumang panganib. Rescuing someone in a terrible situation is always a bad idea.

Pangalawang araw simula nang mawala si Mirden. Dumating na rin ang mga magulang nito na kasalukuyang kinakausap si Principal Steins sa office. I was thinking if I will meet them, but I'm not sure how I will be able to explain the situation to them. Binabagtas ko ang corridor patungo sa aking unang klase nang mag-isa. If you're wondering about Jin, I saw Zach drag him earlier. He saw me, too and only offered me a smile. Mukhang desidido ang lider ng Dark Monarch na mawala ang sakit ng ulo niya kay Jin. Maraming estudyante ang nagkumpulan sa isang bahagi ng pasilyo. Lumingon sila sa akin habang palapit ako sa kinaroroonan nila. Walang imik ko lang silang nilagpasan. Agad namang humabol sa akin si Jamie at sinabayan ako sa paglalakad.

"Trinity Domingo is out of the Power 10. She got flushed to 15th place," bungad niya. Binigyan ko siya ng i-don't-care look. The Power 10 is the least of my worries now. "Mirden is 17th which is better kumpara sa dati niyang rank. I'm on the 38th and Van is still the most powerful," patuloy niya.

"Why are you feeding me up with that information?" Matamlay kong tanong.

She smiled weakly at me. "Congratulations. You made it to the 8th place. Ikaw na ngayon ang nag-iisang babaeng nakapasok sa Power 10. You deserve it."

I gave it a thought. Dapat ba akong matuwa? Well, di ba pinlano ko naman na pasukin ang Power 10? Nabigo nga lang akong patalsikin si Van sa puwesto niya. Ipinagkibit-balikat ko na lang ang balita. It seemed unimportant compared to more important things I should be focusing on. If this day is not today, I would have been grinning boastfully to myself and bet to all people in Montello High that it's only a matter of time and I can kick Freniere from the first place. But being the most powerful in this school does not matter to me now. Hindi lumipas ang isang minuto at nakita namin si Tyler. Agad niyang iniwan ang kaniyang mga kaibigan at sumabay sa aming paglalakad.

"Summer, nakita ko sa results ng level exam natin na pasok ka sa Top 10. Wow! But I was actually expecting it," nakangiting wika ni Tyler.
