I am now inside the security room trying to find Yooma through all the cameras, I have to warn her about ‘Young Ji’ at least.
While searching, I saw her at one of the cameras which is at the 2nd floor of the school. I immediately grabbed the broken pipe that I found at the locker room to at least defend myself and went outside, carrying my phone with me.
I tried to walk quietly as possible but I kept on accidentally stepping on the dead bodies making a ‘Squish Squish’ sound.
“Ugh… gotta buy new shoes after this.” I whispered to myself as I skipped through bodies from bodies.
I heard a sound as I felt myself bump into someone, I opened my eyes while rubbing my face and saw Fei.
“Fei, where have you been? Jina went looking for you.” I asked, grabbing both her shoulders.
She doesn’t looked like herself anymore and just kept staring blankly at me.
“Fei? What’s wrong?” I asked, and she suddenly erupted into crying.
“K-kelly… She jumped from the window.” She sobbed, covering her face with her palms.
“H-hey. Stop crying, nothing will be solved if you cry.” I awkwardly said, not entirely sure how to comfort a crying person who just witnessed so many death.
I patted her back, refraining myself from speaking since I know I wouldn’t help with my rude way of speaking.
From a far distance, I can hear a sound of footsteps walking aimlessly at the dark part of the hallway.
“Hey, Fei. I know you’re sad and all but we have to go.” I stated, gripping on to the metal pipe and trying to drag her from that place.
Fei just sobbed, determined to get left behind since she won’t move a muscle from her spot.
“Fei, let’s go.” I pulled more but she was resisting.
“No, I don’t want to go anymore. Leave me behind if you want.” She yanked my hand, and violently pushed me away from her.
“My God you’re annoying.” I whispered, cursing under my breath. “I hate to ruin your mood but apparently the killer is like 10 meters away from us and is walking to our direction. You can mourn all you want when we get out of here but now we have to go. As in now.” I said grabbing her hand and pulling her but still wont budge.
“Alright, you know what. Go ahead and die. Hey killer, this girl right here wants to die so you can go ahead and kill her while I make a run for it.” I waved at the silhouette who was slowly walking towards us.
“What are you talking about?” I heard a familiar voice as the person stepped into the dim light, revealing herself.
“Oh thank God it’s just Yooma.” I sighed in relief before glaring at Fei. “Hey, Are you sure you want to spend the entire time crying over there?”
“What happened to her?” Yooma asked, staring at Fei who is currently in a mental breakdown, hugging her knees.
“She saw Kelly jump down from the window.” I scratched my head in annoyance, I feel like I’m babysitting at the moment.
“Then she’s probably gonna kill herself the next 10 minutes.” Yooma sighed, walking pass us and looking at the other end of the hallway.
“Alright, obviously we all want to die.” She turned to face us. “But we all have to get through this.”
“Uh yeah, tell that to this woman.” I pointed at Fei, still sobbing nonstop.
“Shut her mouth before she grabs any unnecessary attention, for all we know someone might jump out and kill us.” She proudly said. “We have to get out of this place.”
“Yeah. Tell that to this woman.” I scoffed, pointing at Fei again. She clicked her tongue at Fei’s childish act and rubbed her temples, probably much more annoyed than me.
This whole talk about Fei almost made me forgot why I was trying to look for Yooma in the first place.
“Hey, Yooma. Young ji is trying to kill you.” I remarked, she doesn’t look surprised at my statement just now.
“I know, but I don’t know why she’s doing this.” She suddenly became teary eyed at the thought of her best friend trying to kill her.
Great, another person crying.
I’m very awkward when it comes to being faced with someone who is crying so I just comforted her by rubbing her back in a circular motion.
“Everyone is dead, and its all my fault.” She remarked, putting down her weapon on the floor. “I shouldn’t have let her die… I should’ve saved her.”
“What happened to Young ji? How did she die? I heard she was your best friend, right?” I showered her with different questions and she just nodded in response.
“I don’t want to talk about it.” She stated, tucking her hair behind her ears.
From this distance, I can smell a sweet scent coming from her, specifically a vanilla.
“You smell like vanilla, what’s your perfume?” I asked. Not the type of question someone would ask in a school filled with dead people, well at least I changed the topic since she’s gonna cry if we continued talking about her deceased friend.
“Oh, I don’t use perfumes, I got this scent because I always bake cakes.” She surprisingly replied like it’s nothing, sniffing her sleeve.
“I also baked cupcakes for my dad’s office mates this morning” She finally smiled. “I hope I’ll see him tomorrow” her smile soon vanished, maybe because she already misses her father.
She opened her mouth to say something but a loud thud at the end of the hall startled us, we stepped back far from it.
We both readied ourself to brace for whatever is coming.
“Get back.” She ordered, pushing me behind her as if I’m the damsel in distress and she’s the knight.
I did what she told me to do and hid behind her, pulling Fei with me while gripping tightly on the weapon I have.
I can sense the footsteps coming towards us in a slow pace, along with a scraping sound as if it’s dragging something.
“W-who’s there?!” I tried to make my voice firmer but I can’t help but to stutter knowing that whoever is walking towards us is about to murder everyone here, with each footsteps reverberating through the darkened hall.
“Whatever you do, don’t–” I heard Yoo ma yelped before she could even finish her sentence, a loud thud was heard after that as if she just fell across the hall.
“Tsk! Fei help me with this!” I yelled but Fei was already running away from here, still sobbing.
Oh my God what a traitor. I thought to myself as I pulled out my phone and aimed it to the person who just hit Yooma.
Revealing a girl, wearing the same uniform as us but her body is completely pale as if she just came out from a fridge, her lips bluish and her wrist covered in wounds.
She almost looked like she’s suffered a lot of painful events that made her look like this.
She stared at me before looking back at Yooma who was wheezing and slowly trying to stand up, then she looked back at me with eye filled with sympathy.
She uttered under her breath, giving me a small smile.
My mind was in a whirl of confusion on why this girl– I’m guessing this is Young Ji– is telling me to run away.
I can’t possibly leave Yooma behind but if this ghost is telling me to run then I should run, or it’ll get angry for not obeying what it said.
So turning my body away, I began preparing to run.
But as soon as I take a hopeful step away from that ghost, I felt myself falling downwards as my head received a strong blow from something hard.
“He-help me…” I got cut off as I felt another strong painful s£nsat!on forming on my head.
I felt my body become numb as I lay on the cold ground while blood streaming down my head. I tried to force myself to stand up but I was pushed back on the ground by a single foot.
I don’t know if my vision is beginning to blur or swirl because it’s dark, all I know is that I’m slowly losing my consciousness.
“Well then, let’s end this quickly.”
I heard her saying a few more words before I felt another smashing sound on my head……
