I walked through my class door.Eyeballs stared at me like a tiger would at its prey.Felt like running but there is nowhere to run.I’m all alone in these new environtment.It’s my first day of school,and I’m not very great with strangers that I just met.Eventhough they are my classmates,to me they are strangers.
It was particularly chilly that day,with a slight drizzle.That did not seem to dampen spirits of the highly optimistic,brave-new-world students of my class.But to me,the weather perfectly symbolized my feeling .I’m a barren wasteland inside.Maybe full of ice.
The moment he walked in,I knew he was trouble.The math teacher.I was never in good terms with any math teachers at any school.I was a good student but something always happen.In January,on a Monday,I watched it begin again.My longtime rivalry with math teachers
The recess bell rang.A person said hello to me.That’s not so bad.He introduced me to groups of students sitting at a table at the canteen.They seemed like my kind of people.A band of misfits group together to survive highschool.Sounds like a Nickelodean show theme.But now,I’ll accept just about anything.I was silent throughout the conversation they had,but collected new information.Turns out that this shool is not what it all appears to be.It’s been hiding some very dark and heavy secret.
After school,for some unknown and mysterious reasons,I decided to wander around the school compound.Then I saw what appeared to be a student screaming behind the school’s worksop.Debating the wisdom of running to the police station which are two blocks away,I let it slide for now.But I’m sure it has something to do with this school’s allegedly dark secrets that was revealed to me by my friends.
Next day,I went to school as usual.I met up with Harits,my new friend that I met yesterday.He told me new details about what the school is hiding.Once again,a question pops up in my head,have I made a good decision in enrolling in this school?The secret that this school is hiding can threaten the students.Because I had known this secret,I need to do something about it.Tonight.
AT 8.00p.m,I was the first one to arrive at the school gate.Few minutes later,others arrived.Tonight is Mathematics class so I will be sitting through a 2 hour long class that I hope I can survive through.But that’s not what I’m worried about.I will unravel this secret once and for all.
Class started.After ten minutes,Mr.Zack received a call.He went outside to answer it.After he went back inside,he told that class would end at 9.00 p.m..Students in the class looked at each other.We knew there is something fishy going on and Harits and I are going to do something about it.
After class,Harits and I waited behind the gate until all students are back home.Suddenly,I felt a third presence.It grabbed my shoulder and covered both of our mouths.I was about to fall on to the ground when I realized it was Dini.The girl from the class next door.I remembered she had been eavesdropping on our conversation.Maybe she’s here to help.
“I’ve seen what they are doing”.But I was alone at that time so I kept quiet.”said Dini.
So she knew about this.I assumed that she have been investigating this matter for a long time.
“The Clan needs to be stopped.More students are disappearing each day.”she explained.Her calm looks now turned into anxiety.The details Harits been telling me is true.They kidnapped children.For what?Sacrifice?Trade?Or something more sinister?
Now we are working as trio.We saw Mr.Zack heading towards the workshop.The workshop is dark and gloomy at night.The trees that grew around it gave it a surreal look.Almost supernatural like.Now Mr.Zack went inside the workshop.
We followed him silently.Through the window,we see people dressed in white standing in a circle in dimly lit room.The incandescent bulb is the only thing that illuminates the space.Seems like Mr.Zack is the only one that is out of place with his black shirt and slacks.
Suddenly,he pushed the orb that was in the center of the circle.That seems to upset the people in white.Mr.Zack started to yell and wreak havoc in the room.He noticed us who were standing behind the window and knew we should not be noticed by the people in white.
“Zack!Are you out of your mind?”
“Yes Chad!,I’m out of my mind for trying to what’s right,!”shouted Mr.Zack.
All of the sudden three of the men in white pulled out guns.
“How’s your hand been doing Zack?”Chad said pointing to Mr.Zack’s dark and dry hand.
A men shot a bullet to the crate on the floor. him,meaning to intimidate him.The blow destroyed the crate but he is still satnding rock solid.Mr.Zack slid his hand to his back pocket pulling out his own gun.Now the all of the four men are at each other’s gunpoint.One shot and all of them could be dead.
Although we are bystanders,we could feel the tension of the scene.Sweat ran down our faces.Adrenaline was rushing through all of our veins.
Mr.Zack kicked Chad’s leg and Chad stumbled to the ground.His fist then landed on the three men’s face.A men tried to hit him but Mr.Zack’s kick broke his wrist.
Mr.Zack ducked down as a woman released deafening shot.It created a hole in the door.He wrestled the woman down and signaled us to leave.
We followed his orders and left the scene.Dini managed to capture a picture of the men in white and the orb.We are still in good condition because they have not `noticed us.As we were escaping the eery looking school premise,Harits tripped and fell.We help him to get up and continue running.The chance of being caught by ‘the whites’as I call them now could not be risk.
We all got home safe and sound.But we cannot help but think what were they doing?We know that Mr.Zack deliberately do that in order to save us.But what happens next?As I’m lying on my bed.I wonder,how I get myself into this mess and Mr.Zack is not all he turned out to be.He is on our side.The right side.And he saved our necks tonight.
The next day,I did not see Mr.Zack but something unexpected happens.I received a letter informing that I was transferred to MRSM Gerik.It is a big step up than the school I’m currently in but I cannot help but wonder does it have anything to do with last night’s event.Strangely enough,Harits was transferred to SERATAS while Dini was stationed to MRSM Kuala Kubu Baharu.I smell conspiracy.My parents handled the school exchange quickly and I was pulled out of the school before I had the chance to say goodbye to my friends.But I managed to meet up with Harits and Dini.We agrred on th same thing.Conspiracy.After that,I did not see them or the school for a long time.
But we promised to be back to solve the mystery.
