The man burst out into devious laugh. Ninomiya was still trying to pull himself away from the man. He tries to breathe before he could face whoever it was right in front of him but as he was forcing himself to break free from him and Ninomiya still fail on that count, He was agitated by the man deliberate action on letting go of his grip. “Argh! Just let me go!” Ninomiya grumbled when the man cross his arms over his chest.
“What’s the matter with you, Ninomi?” Ninomiya heard the man said something to him. Ninomiya tried to look away but he caught a glimpse of that man and his jaw dropped down at once as he saw the man slowly took off the mask that he was wearing. He sealed his eyes for a short time as he was trying to control his anger from bursting out and the impact of it, he loose his balance and fell on the floor. Ninomiya grumbled slightly before he looked at the man that was standing right by his side. Ninomiya furrowed his eyebrow, “You…” he said furiously, and at the same time, he felt his heart began to palpitates furiously. Ninomiya stared at the man that standing in front of him. The man return his gaze and smiled to him finally when he reach his hand out to help Ninomiya stood back up once more, “Come, let me help you,” he said to Ninomiya. Ninomiya gritted his teeth against each other before he reached out for his hand, “Yeah, sure…” Ninomiya replied that man but somehow with an unsatisfied heart, Ninomiya hold firmly his hand and pull him towards him, making the man fell down.
“How could you do this to me, man!” he said to Ninomiya as he slowly pushed himself up. He turned around when he looked at Ninomiya was sorting the t-shirt that he was wearing. Ninomiya was gasping for some air from the laughter that he had earlier and he was still smiling with the ridiculous thing that has happened in between the two of them. Ninomiya ran his fingers through his hair to sort it back once again. “Well, it is not pleasant to be doing what you just done to me you know, Aiba,” Ninomiya said to Aiba who was still lying on the floor. Aiba furrowed his eyebrow, “That is still unfair you know!” Aiba said to Ninomiya and Ninomiya only lifted his shoulders up and laughed at Aiba, “It doesn’t matter anyway,” he said to Aiba before he turned around to continue with the dishes that he was doing earlier. Aiba sighed, as he bring himself up he picked up the tools that he’d dropped on the floor to frighten Ninomiya.
Ninomiya smiled to himself. He knew that being here would have the ups and down, and he’s glad that he have friends that will always be right by his side. ‘Ah, this is life,’ Ninomiya grumbled on his own. Ninomiya grabs a plate in the sink right after he turned on the water and continues to clean those dirty dishes. He heard Aiba’s footsteps as he was approaching near and Aiba reached his hands out when he closed the window that was open. Aiba rested his hand at the side of the sink and made Ninomiya turned his gaze towards him, “I think I should be getting the broom somewhere in the kitchen, that I don’t know where, to help you clean up the mess,” Aiba said to Ninomiya when his eyes were looking at the porcelain plate that has broken on the floor... Ninomiya turned his gaze towards Aiba that was pointing on the floor. Ninomiya sighed, “Well, if you don’t mind helping,” he said to Aiba. Aiba only lifted his shoulder up, “No problem, man,” Aiba said with a sly smile across his face and walked away from there. Ninomiya alone and he continue to do his work when Aiba was looking around the dark place to search for the broom.
“Just be careful, Aiba. I don’t want you stumble and fall,” Ninomiya said to Aiba as he continues to do his work. Ninomiya looked at the world outside through the window and a swiftly cold air shivers him. He sighed, ‘This is the real world,’ he said alone before he continue to do his work.
“Seriously, Ninomi. Let me help you with that,” Aiba said to him, but Ninomiya was trying to push Aiba away from him. Ninomiya turned around and looked at Aiba’s direction, “You don’t want to find trouble with those two,” he said to Aiba when he knows what Ohno and Sakurai’s action will be if they see Aiba helping with his ‘duty’. Aiba who was away from him turned around and looked at Ninomiya’s direction as he was walking closer to him once again, “But it’s not right for them to be doing this to you,” Aiba said to Ninomiya. Ninomiya sighed when he looked at Aiba, “Thanks, man…” he said silently, only he could hear it. It’s not that he doesn’t want Aiba to be there but he doesn’t want Aiba to be doing what he was told to do. He felt like it wasn’t a right thing to be doing, but Aiba doesn’t seems to care with what Ninomiya had said to him, he just took the plates that has been wash and started to arrange them properly at another rack the other side of the kitchen. Even though the light were dim inside the kitchen, they can still manage to do their work as they were helping around with one another as Ninomiya beginning to enjoying to Aiba singing his favourite song while he was doing his work.
Ninomiya laughed when he looked at how happy Aiba was at that time. ‘Oh well, let’s just enjoy your time, Aiba,’ he said in his heart and after a while he was doing his work, he was almost done with everything inside the sink.
Aiba walked closer to Ninomiya after he had done with keeping the dishes inside the cabinet after drying them up. Aiba sat at the small dining table that place at the corner near the cabinet in the kitchen after he took a cup of plain water from the bottle on the table close to them. Aiba took a sip of it. Ninomiya walked towards his direction and he sat close to Aiba. Aiba turned his glance of curiosity towards Ninomiya that was sweating from doing the work but it was cold inside the house. He pull one napkin off from the box that place on top of the table and hand it over to Ninomiya, “You should wipe it off you know,” he said to Ninomiya. Ninomiya was about to wipe it away with his hand, but he took what Aiba had given to him and wipes away the sweats that has been falling down. Ninomiya smiled to Aiba, “Thanks man,” he said to Aiba in return. Aiba just smiled to Ninomiya before he took a sip of drink from the cup he was holding in his hand.
“No problem,” Aiba smile briefly. He wiped away the water that slightly fell down at the side of his lips with his finger when he looked at Ninomiya once again. It seems like Ninomiya had a lot going on inside the head of his. He doesn’t seems to notice Aiba was staring deep at his deep brown eyes, waving his hand in front of his face. Aiba looked at Ninomiya statically, “Oi!” Aiba was calling for him but he still deep in his thought. Aiba furrowed his eyebrow when he couldn’t even manage to distract Ninomiya from what was playing in his mind.
‘What the hell is he thinking about?!’ Aiba grumbled in his head. He furrowed his eyebrow and without hesitation, he touched Ninomiya’s shoulder. Ninomiya looked at him instantly. “What, what?” He asked Aiba. He was startled when he suddenly felt Aiba holding his shoulder in a sudden when there’s nothing actually going on. At that time, he has to admit that his mind was drifted away with some other thought that came across his mind. Ninomiya sealed his eyes shut as he inhaled a deep breath before he heard Aiba slightly giggled at him. Ninomiya opened his eyes once again when he looked at Aiba sarcastically. He furrowed his face, “What is it?” he asked Aiba. Aiba only smirked at Ninomiya and he lifted his shoulder up, “Seriously, I don’t know, but really. I wonder what is actually kept on playing in your mind,” Aiba said to Ninomiya. He rubbed his hands against each other to warm himself up from the cold weather but he seriously wanted to know what this smart ass man kept on thinking about the whole time. He noticed that Ninomiya was a bit off wasn’t paying any attention since seven of them reach the house. Perhaps he could be thinking too much about such thing like he normally does. Ninomiya always take thing way too serious. Aiba chuckled slightly as he was shaking his head from side to side. He only believe that the house was abandon or somebody who lives inside it was caught in the blizzard outside, they couldn’t manage to reach home while their daily maid had prepared for their dinner that night. Aiba sighed a little and he turned his gaze to look at Ninomiya whose mind were still thinking about the danger zone.
Aiba smiled on his own before he tries to reach out for Ninomiya once again but somehow, at that time, Ninomiya was aware with his action. Ninomiya pushed Aiba’s hand away and looked at his direction strangely, “What do you want from me?” Ninomiya asked Aiba when Aiba looked away from Ninomiya with a smile spread across his lips. Aiba sighed when his mind was drifting away on his own at that time, ‘Ninomiya, Ninomiya…’ he mention his name in his heart silently. He winked his eyes towards Ninomiya’s direction and he thought that maybe a person like Ninomiya who is smart are a little reserve and careful inside Aiba sighed, rubbed his eyes with his fingers.
“Well,…” he said slowly when he don’t really wanted to know, but Aiba just sighed and smile towards Ninomiya’s direction, Ninomiya return his gaze with a glance of uncertainty on what’s Aiba was thinking about, he heard Aiba sighed once more. Aiba lifted his shoulder up, “Well, it’s nothing really, but I am just wondering what the hell you are thinking about this whole time since we entered the house,” Aiba said to him. Ninomiya gritted his teeth against each other when he doesn’t know actually how to explain what was actually playing around with his mind and he only wanted to talk about something else since he don’t want Aiba to think that he is crazy. Ninomiya lifted his shoulder up and only smiled to Aiba while he was bending his head lower down because he doesn’t want to look at Aiba anymore. “It's just nothing, Aiba. Don’t worry about it too much,” he said to Aiba. Aiba bite his lips slightly when he was doubtful with Ninomiya’s answer. He looked at Ninomiya that was looking away from his direction and at the end, Aiba just lifted his shoulder up in devastation, “Oh well, if you say so then,” he said to Ninomiya to cool himself down.
Ninomiya just smiled when he move his head up and down, “Yeah…” he replied Aiba. Ninomiya doesn't want Aiba to know what was playing in his head and that is why too he was avoiding the eye contact in between the two of them. He knew that maybe he could lie on the surface of reality, but sometimes, the eyes could always tell what was actually hidden behind his heart.
After a brief silent in between the two of them, Ninomiya gently put his hand on the table and smiled to Aiba that wasn’t looking at him. Ninomiya looked away and noticed the mask that Aiba had worn earlier to frighten him on the table. He narrowed his eyes and he took it in his hand. Ninomiya turned to his side and he looked at Aiba that seems to be enjoying playing the game on his mobile phone. Aiba turned to grab the glass of water and drink it; he heard a squeaking sound from the chair as Ninomiya was adjusting his sit so they will be in a parallel. He stared at Ninomiya, “What is it?” he asked Ninomiya that was playing around with mask in his hand. He seems to hold a tight grip over the mask as something about the mask bother him so much. Aiba smiled to the fact that Ninomiya took so much interest in the mask as if the event that happen just now was something serious. He confiscated the mask. Ninomiya was stunned by Aiba prompt action.
“It’s mine!” sticking his mouth out. Ninomiya raised his eyebrow with a sharp look, “Oh, really, it’s yours?” he asked Aiba directly because the mask seems to look slightly old. The colour of that black mask seems to be faded like a vintage and it was handcrafted plus it look so old. Aiba nodded his head instantly, “Well of course it is mine!” he answered with a bit of hesitation in his voice that give Ninomiya a doubtful looked. He looked at Ninomiya naively. Ninomiya raised his eyebrow up. Irritating with Ninomiya who keeps giving him a doubtful look Aiba drastically ask, “What?” Ninomiya looked at the mask that Aiba was holding in his hand before he turned his glance towards Aiba. Aiba looked at Ninomiya statically, “Seriously, what’s on your mind, Ninomi?” with unsatisfying voice that demand answer.
Ninomiya lifted his shoulders up. “Well, it seems like the mask looked pretty old to me if you just bought it. I never seen this one on your mask collection back in Japan, You a mask freak and I have a vivid memory of each of the mask you collected since it scared me a little....” Ninomiya said to him. Aiba felt his heart was pounding harshly when Ninomiya said that to him. Aiba still gives him the confusion look.
“I just found it inside the drawer at the cabinet inside the bedroom when I was taking my nap earlier,” he explained. Ninomiya looked at Aiba when he couldn’t believe that he was willing to wear it just to freak him out. Ninomiya furrowed his eyebrow, “And you put it on?” he asked Aiba. Aiba just sighed when he puts the mask back on the table and he leaned closer to the table as he rested his head on his arms that was crossed on the table, “I was so bored. And you know I am a mask freak, that’s what you called me by the way. I don’t know what to do anymore,” he said to Ninomiya. Ninomiya looked at Aiba, “And you wear something that you found inside the house...?” he asked Aiba that doesn’t seem to bother too much anymore. Aiba furrowed his eyebrow when he sat back up straight and he wanted to fight back.
“Well, it looks pretty interesting and it’s only a mask!” Aiba said to Ninomiya gloweringly. Ninomiya grabbed the mask that Aiba has put back on the table and he looks at it clearly. Ninomiya felt his heart was pounding once again when he looked at the mask that seems pretty old but felt brand new... The darkness that conquering the two of them in the kitchen, made him wonder. The house look beautiful on the outside but a little bit old fashion inside, supper or dinner, whatever it is, was prepared on the table for the seven of them, still warm and freshly baked or cook and there are some personal properties inside the house? Ninomiya bite his lips light as his brain started to work furiously once again... He looked at Aiba oddly, and Aiba returned his gaze.
“What is it?” that was the only thing that Aiba could ask him. Ninomiya swallow his own saliva before he could even speak to Aiba. Ninomiya felt his heart pound furiously as his hand that was holding the mask triggered at the same time. He bite his lips slightly once more before he could even open up to Aiba, but from the look on Ninomiya’s face expression, Aiba was certain that there isn’t something that is right. Ninomiya slowly looked away from Aiba but Aiba grabbed on his arms and made Ninomiya looked at his direction once again. “Seriously, Ninomi. Don’t freak me out like this!” Aiba said to Ninomiya and Ninomiya slowly release the mask that he was holding in his hand down on the table....
“What if the mask actually belongs to somebody that is ‘still’ living in this house?” Ninomiya said to Aiba who fell silent with his statement. Aiba pulled the chair that he was sitting on much closer to Ninomiya. Ninomiya blinked his eyes a couple of times when in his mind, he started to think regarding matters that seems ridiculous, but ridiculous things could be real... Ninomiya gritted his teeth against each other when he felt Aiba was holding his hand in his... Ninomiya inhaled a deep breath... He turned his gaze, looking at Aiba who seems to be much more haunted than him... Ninomiya looked away from his glance towards Aiba and he ran his fingers through his hair... he blinked his eyes once again...
What if in silent, none of them don’t actually notice, whoever it was inside the house was standing right behind their back without them realize? What if they had been baiting them to stop right in front of the house when their car has gotten its flat tyres? What if they have been waiting for them to go to the house...? Ninomiya’s eyes were opened wide at that time as slowly he looked back to his side, directly at Aiba’s direction when he felt Aiba was gripping his hand slightly. Ninomiya inhaled a deep breath before he could even speak... The silent in between the two of them was frightening them worse.
“I don’t know what we should be doing next...” Ninomiya said to Aiba when he heard the sound of blizzard outside were getting much worse than it was before and as the silent was taking control of the whole lot, the window that was open before was opened once again and in a sudden, the dim light from the front hall that was lighting everything in the kitchen went down and they were trapped in the darkness. Aiba shriek loudly before he grabbed on Ninomiya’s hand as the two of them stood up together. Aiba couldn’t see anything in the darkness and he could only feel that Ninomiya was holding his hand right by his side... “I don’t know what is going on, but I don’t like it at all!” Aiba said to Ninomiya as he was too frightened with what was happening. Ninomiya could feel Aiba’s heart was pounding so rapidly, Ninomiya could feel that Aiba was gasping for air to be breathing. Ninomiya inhaled a deep breath when he know that if Aiba would be frighten with what the hell is happening, he might be feeling worse than he felt before... Aiba blinked his eyes in the darkness.
“What is the mask belongs to somebody...!” Aiba repeat what Ninomiya had said to him earlier and in a sudden... they heard footsteps were approaching towards their direction... and it was getting much closer to them as each second passed by... Aiba felt a drop of his tears fell down beneath his eyes and suddenly, the two of them shrieked so loud when they felt somebody touched their shoulder gruesomely from behind their back. “Ahh!” the two of them screamed so loud when Aiba wrapped his long hands around Ninomiya’s body at the same time. The two of them sealed their eyes shut, ‘Damn! I know this is a bad idea!!’ Ninomiya said in his heart when he doesn’t want to see anything anymore and in silent apart from what was happening in the outside world, they both felt the cold wind from the open window and there was a sound of somebody laughing at the two of them.
Ninomiya and Aiba were looking at each other from the very dim light from the moon outside that was brightening a very little part of the kitchen. Ninomiya could feel that Aiba was gripping his body much closer against Aiba’s wide chest. Ninomiya tries to push him away from the silent that were taking charge of the whole night was giving them the fright. Ninomiya could feel Aiba’s body was triggering and he was trying to hold himself together before he knew at the end, he might trembled down because he was too afraid. Aiba’s breath were brushing against his forehead and Ninomiya was still blinking his eyes when he felt his body had already stiffen from the fright that he couldn’t bear anymore.
After a while of trying too hard to see, the two of them exchanged their gaze with one another and their both unsettle heart began to pound so hard as the sound from the blizzard outside could be heard inside the kitchen and in a sudden glimpse of time, the two of them heard a very loud laughter and the shadow the two of them seen before appeared once again and the two of them screamed so hard, they don’t care about anything else anymore.
In the cold silent night that was creeping people out, nobody actually wanted to pass by the corridor at the side of those room at the upper level of the big house. Almost all the bedroom door were wide open but there was only seven of them inside the house. Sakurai had fallen asleep down in the living room hall; Ohno and Naomi were locked inside of the room as they were busy with their own business, oddly enough there a young beautiful lady inside one room at the corner next to Ohno and Naomi, the beautiful young lady who was looking at herself in front of the mirror. She gently touched her face from the reflection that she was looking at with a smile across her face...
“You are so beautiful...” she said to herself. She looked at the clothes that she had worn earlier dump on the bed behind her back and at that time, she was wearing something that was so beautiful she had found inside the closed in that room. She doesn’t know it belongs to whom, but from the scent of it, she was sure that it would belong to somebody that was young and as beautiful as she was. She smiled to herself as she giggled slightly. She was amazed with her own reflection in front of the mirror and she took the beautiful golden brush on the makeup table in front of her.
She brushed her long blonde hair and how at that time, she felt like she was the only lady in the house that was as marvellous as she was. She smiled on her own and she placed the brush she was using earlier on the table as she ran her fingers through her hair that was neatly comb. “I know you would want me again tonight, honey,” she mumble to herself as she remembered her boyfriend, Sakurai, would be coming up later for her to pleasure him more.
Jessica ran her fingers through the short red dress she had put on before, she was admiring herself for looking too beautiful for Sakurai to resist her that night. She rolled her eyes when she grabbed the can of beer she had taken with her to bed and took a sip of it to pleasure herself on her own... she gently touched her own body to make sure that she was well prepared for him that long, but suddenly her teasing smile earlier turned with a devilish smile across her lips. She ran her long fingers right behind her solid ass and spanked herself to make her feel like she could be in demand later on with Sakurai in her lure to satisfaction.
“But I won’t be waiting for you that long, my honey...” she said alone as she was still looking at her own reflection against the mirror in front of her, she winked her eyes. She looked at how her body curved, with her ass just so nice to put his hands on and her voluptuous breast for him to caress with love, she licked on her lips, with the red lipstick she was worn after she had put on the dress, and she knew that Sakurai would be enjoying himself later that night... She leaned closer to the mirror when she gently kissed against the mirror and left a mark of her lips against it before she turns around and walk towards the bed right behind her back.
She pushed the clothes she had worn earlier on the floor and she climb on top the bed and covered half of her body that was slightly exposed from the seductive red dress she was wearing, she closed her eyes with a smile on her face...
“I should take a little rest before I see you in a little bit, Sakurai honey,” she said to herself....
“What is happening, Ninomi...” Aiba ask him. Ninomiya couldn’t even think of any answer to be giving to him. He only shakes his head from side to side, but he knew that Aiba couldn’t see him at all... Aiba pulled Ninomiya much closer in his arms as he was too afraid to know what was happening at that time. “Seriously, Ninomi... I’m freaking scared right now...” Aiba was concern. Ninomiya tries to look around if there is any sign of somebody or whatever that causes the sudden terror, but it was too dark for him to see. He tries to loosen up from Aiba’s hands that were gripping him too tightly, Ninomiya felt like he was suffocating from what Aiba was doing to him. Ninomiya could feel Aiba’s heart was pounding as hard as even his heart was pounding too furiously as well. Ninomiya tries to breathe in some air as he slowly pushed Aiba away from him.
“I know what you are talking about Aiba,” Ninomiya said to him as he was trying to cover up his fear. Ninomiya sealed his eyes shut when suddenly everything that he has seen in his dream suddenly came back to life once again. Ninomiya doesn’t want to feel ridiculous for thinking all of his thoughts are real, but... what if it is a sign or some sort? He could feel Aiba was shaking the whole time and he was holding Aiba together to avoid him from falling down. He opened his eyes once again and he looked at the direction where he know Aiba was standing, he inhaled a deep breath before he could even speak...
“You got to be strong, Aiba...” he said slowly...
And after a while of trying too hard to see what was in front of them, the two of them finally manage to exchanged their gaze with one another. Both of their unsettle heart began to pound so hard, the heart beat could be heard loud and clear in the open air as the sound of the harsh blizzard from the outside world could be heard inside the kitchen as the open window kept on swing from side to side. Ninomiya looked away from there and in a sudden glimpse of time, the two of them heard a very loud laughter and the shadow the two of them seen before appeared once again and the two of them screamed so hard, they don’t care about anything else anymore.
“Ahhh!!!” the two of them shrieked as hard as they were so terrified with what was going on in the kitchen. They don’t know what it was or what was happening anymore to the two of them at that time. The silent in the whole house was giving them the fright they couldn’t imagine anymore. Aiba pulled Ninomiya much closer to him as he sealed his eyes shut, “Ninomi, I don’t know what is going on, but this is freaking me out!” Aiba screamed to him and when in a short time, the hand that had frighten them before wrapped around Aiba’s neck and it was gripping it so tight. He was pulled away from Ninomiya who was searching for Aiba.
“What do you want from me!!!?” Aiba screamed so hard and the man pushed Aiba hard against the empty wall behind his back as he was strangling Aiba harder than before. He could hear the sound of Aiba pleading for his life to be spare, but whoever it was, his laugh were dominating the whole place. Aiba was too scared to be thinking of anything anymore; he felt his tears fell down from his eyes....
“Please! Don’t take my life away! What have I ever done wrong to you!!!?” Aiba screamed so hard and suddenly, the light in the kitchen was turned on and the laughter still goes on. Aiba was frozen at the wall when Ninomiya ran right beside him and he hold both side of Aiba’s shoulder, “Are you okay, Aiba?” Ninomiya asked him. Aiba eyes were still sealed shut, “I’m dead! I’m dead!” He screamed. Ninomiya slapped his face to wake him up and Aiba opened his eyes instantly. He looked at Ninomiya that was standing in front of him. “Are you alright?” Ninomiya asked him again and Aiba could only nodded his head when he thought that he was already dead, “I’m alright, I’m alright,” Aiba answered him but the sound of that laughter was still there and it seems like it was approaching them much closer.
Aiba stood close to Ninomiya when the two of them looked at the open side that connect the front hall and the kitchen, Aiba gritted his teeth against each other, “I don’t know what the hell is it and I seriously don’t want to know,” Aiba said to Ninomiya when Ninomiya could only nodded his head in agreement. At that time, Ninomiya couldn’t say anything else anymore... “I hope it’s nothing bad...” Ninomiya said to Aiba when suddenly the laughter was mixed up with a person clapping his hand...
“That was hilarious!” they heard a voice spoke to them suddenly.
“I hope it’s nothing bad...” Ninomiya said to Aiba when suddenly the laughter was mixed up with a person clapping his hand...
“That was hilarious!” they heard a voice spoke to them suddenly. The man that came from the living room hall cross his arms over his chest with a smirk across his face, he leaned close to the wall he was standing close to.
“And I wonder why the two of you don’t turn on the light in here,” they heard somebody speak. Aiba opened his eyes once again when he recognize the voice of that somebody who just spoke to them. Ninomiya looked at Aiba right by his side and the man that frighten them before sat on the dining table chair right in front of their face. Aiba’s jaws fell open.
“Matsumoto!” Ninomiya mention Matsumoto’s name that was grinning with what the two of them had done in front of him a while ago. Matsumoto rose up his hand to greet the two of them when in his hand, it seems like he was holding a very old news paper in his hand. “Yo,” Matsumoto greeted the two of them. Aiba furrowed his eyebrow, “You know that it’s not a nice thing to do!” he said to Matsumoto directly. Matsumoto looked at Aiba statically, “And since when Ninomi thought you to be like him?” Matsumoto said to Aiba when he put the paper on the table. Ninomiya couldn’t focus on anything else anymore as his mind began to play around.
Ninomiya smiled on his own when he couldn’t believe that Matsumoto’s trick on the two of them worked out very well. Aiba furrowed his eyebrow when he looked sharply towards Matsumoto direction. “What comes to your head anyway, Matsumoto?!” Aiba asked Matsumoto directly when Matsumoto was drinking from the bottle he had taken inside his backpack earlier before they even decided to go there. Matsumoto put the bottle down on the table. He turned his gaze towards Aiba and he could only smile to him. “And I thought you guys want the thrill and excitement. So why not I give you one?” Matsumoto said to them directly while he was listening to the music from the headphone that was plugged into his mobile phone.
Aiba gritted his teeth against each other, “Thrill huh you say?” Aiba said to him when he sat back down on the dining table inside the kitchen. Ninomiya walked towards the table direction and sat right beside them and he turned his glance towards Matsumoto, “Where did you go a while ago?” Ninomiya asked him as he was curious to know, Matsumoto had went missing right after he had finish his supper with the other boys. He wondered where had Matsumoto ran off to... The house is big and they could just be missing if they ever got lost inside the house anyway. Ninomiya was still looking at Matsumoto and he was looking at him statically.
Matsumoto put the bottle he was holding in his hand on the table and he leaned closer to the table with a sly smile across his face, “I just got tired from eating too much crap inside of this house. I went upstairs to take a nap for a very short time... but I couldn’t sleep,” he told them. Aiba raised his eyebrow and looked at Matsumoto, “And so, what did you do? Play with a baby doll you found inside the room?” Aiba said to Matsumoto as he was laughing at the same time. Matsumoto furrowed his eyebrow and pushed Aiba’s shoulder away. He looked at Aiba, “No, you idiot fool,” he said to Aiba. Aiba rubbed his shoulder as he could feel the slight pain from Matsumoto pushing him.
“Then what did you do?!” he asked Matsumoto again. Matsumoto looked at Aiba sharply, “I went to each and every room inside the house!” he said to Aiba. Ninomiya had a small laughter when he felt a little funny looking at them being like a small child. The two of them kept on arguing with each other but Ninomiya’s eyes suddenly caught a glimpse from the news paper than Matsumoto had taken with him from upstairs. He clenches his fist harder as he was gritting his teeth against each other. He tries to read what was written on it since the news paper looked pretty old and rotten somehow...
Ninomiya took off his spec and he rubbed his eyes lightly before he puts it back on. Ninomiya blinked his eyes a couple of times when finally after a while of trying to see, he manage to read a little bit on what was written on it. He could still hear those two were talking to each other but his interest were at something else. ‘What the hell is it written there!!’ he said in his heart as he was still forcing himself to read, and after he manage to see, his jaw fell down open as he was shocked to know where they actually were...
“You shouldn’t do that you know, Matsumoto!” Aiba grumbled to Matsumoto when Matsumoto doesn’t even care with what Aiba was saying to him. Matsumoto rolled his eyes when at the same time he was mocking Aiba with what he was saying to him. “Bla, bla, bla,” Matsumoto said. Ninomiya looked at the two of them and he could only smile to them. “You two are hilarious,” he said to them, but at the same time, Ninomiya took off the spec that he was wearing and he gently rubbed his eyes before he put the spec back on. He could still hear those two were talking to each other but his interest were at something else. ‘What the hell is it written there!!’ he said in his heart as he was still forcing himself to read.
‘Terror Night @ 9th Street of St. Valentine....’ Ninomiya read silently. Ninomiya felt his heart stopped beating as he was frozen for a short time. Ninomiya couldn’t think of anything else anymore.... His eyes were only staring straight at the picture of the house in the old rigid news paper looked exactly like the house they are in right now...
‘This couldn’t be it...’ he said silently in his heart as he felt that his heart couldn’t beat anymore. Ninomiya tries to breathe in as his jaws fell open and he couldn’t even blink his eyes anymore...
