These three sentences drummed in my head as I run carefully, without trying to make any sounds to avoid alarming the others. โ€œThink. Think. Use your head!โ€

I tried to beg my brain to cooperate with me but after all the plans I made on the previous rounds, I canโ€™t seem to think of another.

With all the stress, anxiety and fear, All that my mind could think of was different scenarios of my death. Thereโ€™s a very low chance of surviving, Why do i have to try so hard? Maybe I...

I found myself in a daze as my eyes spotted a sharp and broken wooden leg of a table, lying in the corner of where I am hiding at. I grabbed the wooden leg as I point the sharp part of it to my chest. I closed my eyes and was about to pierce it through my heart when a hand suddenly pulled my arm, causing the wood to drop to the floor. โ€œTrying to kill yourself? If you really are guilty, then donโ€™t you dare kill yourself.โ€ he said while gripping my arm tight.

Still dumbfounded by his sudden appearance, my mouth couldnโ€™t let out words to answer him back, โ€œYou started this, so you have to help end this mess!โ€ He said coldly while looking directly at my eyes, piercing through my soul.

He let go of my arm, and put both of his hands into his pocket.

โ€œMaise!โ€ A man shouted from the door and rushed over to my side. โ€œAre you okay?โ€ Dark said and glanced over at Lloki, the man who gripped my arm. โ€œWhat did you do to her?โ€

Lloki let out a snort and answered, โ€œI saved her ass from commiting suicide.โ€ He turned around and was about to leave.

โ€œWait.โ€ I said, stopping him on his tracks. โ€œWhat else could I do to help other than killing myself? I am the Judge! If I die voluntarily, This last round will end!โ€

Lloki looked at me with disbelief, โ€œYou actually told me that youโ€™re the Judge. What if I am the Murderer? You couldโ€™ve had died.โ€ he said with a smirk.

โ€œBut youโ€™re not the Murderer, I know it.โ€ I firmly said.

โ€œHow would you know?โ€

โ€œBecause you told me to trust my instincts. And I trust my instincts, Lloki. I trust you.โ€

For a little while, he was silent and stared at me.

Then he averted his gaze and changed the topic back to where I was abou to kill myself.

โ€œKilling yourself wonโ€™t make any difference. Even if youโ€™re the only one who dies in this round, that wonโ€™t guarantee that theyโ€™ll survive the other rounds.โ€

โ€œBut didnโ€™t the system announced that this may be the last round?โ€ Dark chimed in.

โ€œNote the word โ€˜mayโ€™.โ€

My last bit of energy left my body after losing the hope that this will be the last. When will this game finally end?

โ€œYouโ€™re smart so you probably already realized this,โ€ He gave me a cold stare for the last time, โ€œNot until the mastermind is satisfied, the rounds of this game will continue,

And this game will never end.โ€

He turned his back and left. He was a quiet guy even before this game started, But I couldnโ€™t seem to trace the other traits of the Lloki we once knew. He has not yet been killed, but itโ€™s as if heโ€™s dead.

I guess even if someone were to survive this game, Youโ€™ll still be dead inside after all of this traumatic shit that happened.

โ€œMaise.โ€ I turned to face Dark as he held my hand, โ€œIโ€™m right here.โ€

I smiled. Those are the only words I need.

Iโ€™ll make sure this game ends, Iโ€™ll make sure there will be people whoโ€™ll survive.

Sometimes I think about what this reunion could have been if I hadnโ€™t introduced the game. The fun and quiet game became a fucking hell after it became a game of survival, organised by a one hell of a lunatic whom we donโ€™t even know who.

And even after many years, I could still remember it.
