While the others are in their own worlds, Agatha leaned down her chair and stared at the ceiling. “Let me guess, you’re thinking about Sir Spades again, aren’t you?” The short-haired girl with monolid eyes said. “Hi there, CC.” Agatha greeted in low spirits.
“How did you know I’m thinking about him?” she muttered in a low voice, still keeping her gaze in the ceiling. CC rolled her eyes and jokingliy answered back, “Since when did you not think of him?”
“Everyone knows that my brother takes up 90% of your mind.” Lloki joked even with a serious face with eyes fixated on the screen of his phone, typing an update of his story, When Words Became Ashes.
Agatha let out a snort, “Jokes on you. He doesn’t take 90% of my mind,” she smiled, “He takes 100%.” she said to herself, ignoring the chatter of her friends.
A teary-eyed girl sighed with relief and they all laughed. Agatha’s brows furrowed in confusion, “Why do you look like you’re about to cry?” she asked.
Mitch heard her and chimed in to answer, “She thought you were angry because you were ignoring her all day.”
They all laughed again because they got too used to the girl getting nervous whenever Agatha get quiet, the girl would think that she might have done something wrong that pissed Agatha off.
Mitch patted her back, ”Ria, don’t worry, we were all ignored. You didn’t do anything wrong, it’s just that Spades is the one in her mind right now.”
They are not bothered to be ignored by Agatha because it often happens when she’s upset or in love. She is a very moody person, she easily becomes sad and angry but also gets happy immediately when someone tries to comfort her. Although some of her tantrums doesn’t make any sense, her group of friends are understanding about it.
“Gosh, she’s like that every year when she finds another crush.” Arneau muttered.
Agatha glared at him, “This time is different! I really like him!” she defended. “Maybe even love him.” she added in her thoughts.
Justine, who just sat down, laughed. “Well, if you’re lucky enough, maybe you’ll get to marry him.” he said jokingly, while removing his earphones to put it in his bag. Although it was just a joke, Agatha seemed to have liked the idea as she smile and imagined it.
“That means I’ll get to be your brother-in-law, then.” Lloki said. Agatha giggled but her smile faded as she noticed Lloki still fidgeting with his phone. “Why are you still using your phone? You’ve been on that for hours!”
Lloki put down his phone, hiding the grump from showing on his face.

They chatted about random things while the others play mobile, card, board games and volleyball. Friday is a freedom day in their school. No classes, just go around doing fun things. Except of course when a grumpy teacher pass by.
Ria, alone in her chair, got no one to talk or play with. Fed up of being bored to death, A sudden memory popped to her mind. She remembered the game she used to play in primarily school with her former classmates.
The game has a lot of different names and version. There’s a version of where there is a killer and others are detectives.When a detective whisper its guess to the moderator, the moderator will point at the accused. If the detective’s guess is wrong, he will be killed.
Another version is where all players will close their eyes and the moderator will choose a player to be the killer by tapping their shoulder. After choosing, the party will proceed and they will be killed when someone winks at them, All players except the killer can accuse.
But the version she played back then consists of different roles that makes the game more entertaining.
Each player will draw one paper with a role written on it. If the Murderer kills the Judge, the police loses and will die. The game will be over. If the Judge’s verdict on the accused is right, the murderer will lose and everyone is safe. The victim’s role is not inportant, it is just to delay time for the Murderer to find the Judge.
But Ria Maise wants to change the rules.
“Everyone!” Ria called out, they all turned to look at her as she smiles and say;
