Chp.3: Save Michael!
vvery sorry I left you heere in this school, Marrk. dgreatly sorryy. At this
moment, I have been taken by one of the monsters to a quite faraaway place.
gdon't try to save me orr they'll get you, too.
"Stop it, Francis!", cried Mark, sobbing, "We already know what it says!"
ceased reading, and silently read the note, thoroughly this time. Ayeza
comforted Mark, bitterly weeping. The rest were stunned, including me.
something funny about this note, but I can't figure out what it is.", Francis
concluded, after reading the note.
nothing funny about it, Francis! He just said he had been captured by those
monsters!", Mark yelled.
somebody shut him up!", Alvin said.
funny, as in a 'funny joke'. Funny as in 'suspicious'.", Francis calmly replied.
see...", Jerimee peeked over Francis' shoulder, "Nothing else is written on it,
except the fact that they got him. What could it be?"
look.", Francis finally figured it out, "He had lots of spelling mistakes!"
cares about spelling mistakes? He could have been killed by now..."
Michael would have", Francis argued, "he's very careful with spelling and he
would have cared so much. See? 'Greatly' with a 'd', 'don't' with a 'g'--"
being stupid with an 's'!", Mark yelled at Francis, covering his ears so he
can't here him speak no more.
are being foolish with an 'f'!", he fought back fiercely.
you two!", Jerimee interrupted, breaking up the dissing.
sighed, uncovering his ears. "I'm sorry, Francis. You're not stupid. You figured
out what was wrong with the note, even if it was just some spelling errors."
sorry, too, Mark. You're not foolish, either. Suren is."
"What?!", Suren voiced out.
glanced at her wristwatch. "It's almost 9:00 PM, you guys. We haven't eaten
stomach growled. "I'm hungry...", he whined.
I'm hungry, too. Maybe the staff room has microwavables...", Jerimee said.
We don't have electricity, remember? We'll have to find some other kind of
food.", Michelle retorted.
let's go to the staff room right away!", Suren said, merrily.
grew upset. "I thought we were gonna look for Michael."
turned to answer him. "Look, we haven't eaten yet, and besides, it's getting
late. Maybe tomorrow."
already up the stairs with the others. "Hurry up you two!"
knew it. There's canned food here."
walked to the cupboard where Jerimee was standing. She took one of the cans and
grimaced. "Jerimee," she said, "these are cans of asparagus."
hell can we eat asparagus alone? Anyways, they're disgusting."
no choice, unless we can find other kinds of food, which I doubt."
and Anne were chatting by the tables, and Suren and Alvin were fooling around
with their flashlights, which was very stupid because they should be saving
their batteries in case there was an emergency instead of wasting them. Me and
Ayeza were in the library, using our flashlights to try fix up the library,
which is where we're sleeping. Jerimee chose the library because the carpet
would serve as our make-shift beds. With luck, Ayeza found blankets and
comforters in one of Ms. Amenta's filing cabinets which was fairly odd, if you
ask me. I helped her set-up the blankets and comforters on the carpeted floor.
The carpet was clean, except for some blood trails scattered about, which kept
me thinking, "Was someone killed here?"
look at this." I said, pointing on the blood trails.
stared at it for a moment, a bit surprised. "It's just blood." Then she finished
off the job and we both went back to the staff room.
I found some bacon here! Plus some other things." I heard Mark said.
quickly looked inside the not-so-chilled refrigerator. "Yes! There's eggs,
ready-to-cook fish fillets, cold cuts..." And he went on. Mark sweat-dropped*.
Was he gonna list every single item on that damn fridge?
finally said, "let's go outside and cook our meal!"
with these cans of food! Woah!"
clattering noise was heard. The cans which Michelle was struggling to carry went
crashing on the floor, one of them hitting her foot which made her scream with
snickered, and before he knew it, Michelle chased him down the stairs.
what are we waiting for? Let's go follow them!" Ayeza shouted.
took the cooking utensils in the cabinet. Mark helped carry the eating utensils.
Everybody got excited and went down the stairs.
dinner went well. The fish fillets were cooked nicely, thanks to us girls. The
boys collected dry branches and twigs in the yard for firewood. We ate like we
were in a campfire. All of us had to sit on the cement ground. The guys were
telling us scary stories, which were very dull compared to our situation right
over, Francis." I overheard Carleen complain.
have lots of room there. Unless you've gone fat..."
couldn't help but laugh. I looked across and realized Ayeza and Rosie also had a
competition. After a few moments, Ayeza moved beside me.
horse has hoofs harder than rocks."
giggled. When everyone was done, we went back inside and up the staff room. We
had to clean the utensils. Unfortunately the staff room did not have a
dishwasher so we had to clean them by hand.
do we sleep?" Anne asked Ayeza.
10:00 already. Time sure flew by. If you're wondering how our make-shift beds
were arranged, look here:
you don't know, Suren was separated from the rest because Jerimee insisted. He
said he was gay. Our sleep was peaceful, yet we knew tomorrow would be
different. Totally different...
*a huge drop of sweat on
his head, like those in anime^_^
