This is who I am:
Other: As a normal healthy Japanese male, Kayama stands about 5 feet 11 inches tall. He has a somewhat long black hair that covers his left eye, and during his club activities, he usually ties it up to a ponytail. Kayama’s eyes contains a certain color of purple if observed closely, however, it is difficult to tell whether he has a pair of colored eyes when looked afar or was paid less attention to the eyes. While it is true that Kayama is a handsome man, it was also undeniable that he also has the physical capabilities on par with a hardcore athlete. It was once commented by one of his juniors in the club that whenever Kayama looks into the distance, a sight of despair and a pled for help can be seen through his eyes, but he always shrugs it off as some kind of false accusation from people who admires him.

This is the true me
You can find me to be: A strict captain during club activities and practices, Kayama holds a commanding status while he forces harsh training on the club members. He was nicknamed to be the Demon Captain of the male Kendo club, and while it is an unneeded title for him, Kayama decides to leave it as it is. The title is but a name most would know him by, and the more that knows of his strict nature, the better. He does not want half-hearted members to join “just for fun”. But, when Kayama is strict towards the entire club and probably to some of his friends too, he is also at the same time kind. From time to time, he visits some of his classmate’s house when they called in sick to give them the paperwork of the day. As kind as he is, he is also very strict to everyone who is healthy and still kicking. Again, he is mostly known for his strict nature and not his kind side.

My story: Born into a family of samurai descendants, Kayama is expected to be the best of the best in his school. Forced to enter Kendo trainings every day since young, he was also tasked to study without a day’s rest and score first in his every test. He wasn’t able to handle it; he couldn’t escape this cruel fate of his. He tried to run away from home. It only ended up worse as his parents tortured him more. It was then he thought. What if he did what they wanted him to do, to achieve a rank higher than anyone else and to stand above all? He decided to take the bet and studied and trained as hard as he could.

Eventually, Kayama had held a position for himself at his elementary and middle school; being the top first at his club, class and probably the entire school. For years he had never lost the title of top place until the last year in his middle school. He had the title that everyone was jealous of and became famous instantaneously. He was respected at everywhere he went and it was almost as if he was the king of the school. That was only until a certain student threw him off his throne. It only lasted for one exam period. Before he knew it, he had regained back his top place position at the school. The name that had once overcame him was gone without a trace from the school. There was no more “Hyouka Hajime”. It was if she never existed. Soon, he learned the reason why. His parents threatened her family that if she dared to take his place again they would obliterate her family, along with the existence of her family.

Kayama thought that it was outrageous. How could his parents do that? He quickly confronted and demanded the truth from them. He opposed their way of doing things and fought back, only to be suppressed by strong henchmen. Since then, after Kayama had entered his high school year, he was tortured over and over again by his parents. They kept telling him to keep his opinion to himself and that he should not be opposing his family’s ideals, that he should just kill his own emotions and to just become their puppet. And that was what happened. After months of trapped in the basement with only leftovers per week and the constant whipping whenever he complains or talks, he had came out to be a man who has no dreams or goals of his own. Kayama became the puppet of his parents, hiding from them that he is only obeying them on the surface.

However, he knows that he can’t show that he still has his own will anywhere at all. He is being monitored by his parents everywhere, and the moment he lets down his guard, he will be dragged back into the basement and will have to go through the same torture over again for months, this time, probably worse. He doesn’t have the courage to face his parents again, and so he will wait. He will wait until it is their time to leave this world for good and that is when he will take over the family, changing what they had already done to this family to a better one so that everyone can be relieved to hear the name “Shinjiro”.

Where I hang out: The Kendo club and occasionally the library.
My fears: His only fear is going back into the basement again, where only more torture awaits him.
What I hide from others: Kayama’s true feelings and opinions. Everything he does and say is all what his parents wants him to act as.

Thou art I
My arcana is: Fortune
My persona's name: Verethragna, the Persion God of Victory
Skills: Cleave(Slash), Zio(Lightning), Tarukaja(Attack enhancement)
Strengths: Physical attacks(Slash and Strike), Lightning attacks
Weaknesses: Light, Darkness, Ice attacks
Traits: Verethragna consists of abilities that varies from enhancing a single ally’s stats to using different types of physical attacks, thus it is mainly an all-rounder persona. Although it leans more on physical skills, it still fairly does well on magical attacks and is also capable of supporting other, although it is still fairly limited to what it can learn.

"Come on, fifteen more laps to go! Don't stop!" A voice that sounded as if a gentle man had forced himself to yelled at someone. Students in their school gym uniforms jogs around the Dojo, as their breathing were already as irregular and some of them even stopped a few times to catch their breath only to be yelled by the captain. There are a few students who were swinging their bokutos (Wooden katana in Japanese if I'm not wrong) up and down, taking a step front and back each swing, and the captain were capable enough to handle two different training at the same time.

"Swing it harder! Don't let the motion stop! One, two, one, two!" Although it was easy to see that he had a certain kindness in his voice, however, not a single person can even hear that "kindness" people used to describe him, and what was left of it is a rough instructor's yells throughout the Dojo. The captain approached one of the students who seemed to be a bit more weak physically. A few students were beside him and when the captain approached him, they took a few steps back. One of them tried to stop him, but it was as if the captain did not hear their shaky pleads. "Please don't, Kayama! He's really weak, and he needs to rest!" The captain, knelt down in front of the student who was clutching his heart, his breathing more irregular than the others.

He lifted the boy's face up, and it was true that he was weak. His breathing were both short and desperate, and any more training would just be pushing him over the limits. No matter how much he was called the Demon Captain, he couldn't risk a student fainting just because he wanted to keep the club's appearance up. "Go take a rest. You can skip for today." The students at the back was relieved at his answer and thanked Kayama before helping the poor boy up and moving him to the nurse's office. The captain stood back up and turned around, noticing that the other members stopped to listen in on the commotion.

"What are you looking at?! Get back to training! We have an hour left before classes start! We'll stop at 7.30, so don't slack off now!" The students all responded with a "Yes!" before proceeding back to their training, with morale stronger than before, possibly fueled by the fact that training will end soon. A loud voice rang throughout the Dojo, emitted from the class building. Surely, a voice this loud would grab the attention of just about anyone, but when it happened, only a few turned to look. The majority just stopped them and dragged them back to training. Those that turned to look was freshmen, and the ones who stopped them were the ones who had been here for at least 6 months.

"The student council president again, huh? Who's the idiot that angered her again?" Kayama let out a sigh before turning his attention back to the Dojo. "Whatever. Its none of my business anyway. I have problems of my own to take care of."

An hour had already passed, and most students had already changed and left for their classes. Kayama stayed back to cleaned up the Dojo and despite him still in his school gym uniform, he was quite safe for today. It was those same old boring opening ceremonies again, and since this is Kayama's last year to stay at this school, he already knew that it would take some time to line up the students and going to the hall. Cleaning up the place while that happens won't do him any bad and he liked being alone anyway. He buttoned his uniform slowly as thoughts slowly fills up his mind again. The memory of his younger days came back, but luckily, he was able to cast it off this time. Most of the time, he needed to give himself enough pain to forget about it, and so he always proceeds to punching as hard as he could on the nearest thing he could see. "I swear I will change how things work one day... I swear I will!"

By the time he had already finished changing and headed for the hall, it was already partially filled. He used his usual way sneaking into the crowds and joined his class. It seemed like no one noticed that he was gone. "Now, I need to survive today's boring classes."

The PA system went off, signalling to be silent. The voice came on soon, the voice of the principal as he spoke. "All Teachers please stop your classes and come to the faculty for an emergency meeting. All students, please remain in your seats and wait for further instructions." There was a pause before the message repeated clear once again. The PA let out another ding noise to signal the end of the announcement. All teachers filed out of their classrooms, reminding students to wait quietly and patiently until they came back.

The only teacher that did not leave was the class teacher for 3-A. Mainly because the teacher didn't show up for the homeroom. Students then began talking once all the teachers were out of the classroom. Rumors began floating around, about how the teacher of 3-A had passed away because of the new disease that was going on. At 8:30, the student news came on. Along with the daily announcements, the student reporter read a message from the Student president.

"Attention all seniors and student council members! Please remember our special event this Friday! Along with our event,there will be spooky stories tell, so please report to the tree boundary by 8 PM! All Club leaders, Student Council, are required to go! Thank you!"


With the last announcement said, the ending played out the daily show. It was 8:45 AM when the PA came alive once again. "Students, please report back to your dorms. Due to an emergency, School will be started next week monday along with the orientation . We are sorry for the delay." The message played once more, and students all but cheered. They quickly filed out, heading back to their dorms.

"This is absurd!"

A voice exploded throughout the traditional mansion. Guards stood in their hired positions, hands behind their back and all of them wore black suits and pants, coupled with black sunglasses. Two particularly large men were guarding in front of a large door, with engravings all over it. Inside it was Kayama Shinjiro sitting in seiza. Sitting in front of his was his parents, Akira Shinjiro and Kikyo Shinjiro. "What is this absurdity about a special event where club leaders and student councils has to do?! I will not allow it!" The father shouted at the young man with his head held low. Since young, Akira had ruled the Shinjiro family with a firm fist, and what with Kayama being his son, Akira wanted his son to be able to be as strong and influencing as his father. In short, it's just his father being too bossy on his son's life.

"But dear, this is an event made by the school. We mustn't ruin our son's position in the school just because its absurd." His mother, Kikyo Shinjiro, had a really, really annoying voice. Her usual bitchy(Excuse my language) speech pisses just about anyone off. Anyone who had seen this pair would immediately want to strangle them or leave on the spot. Kayama was able to endure this couple for 17 years, and that is really impressive.

But Akira's strength was something undeniable. He fought with three masters of whatever sports they were in with bare hands without breaking a sweat. Accompanied by wealth and fame, anyone married to this bastard here is just about as lucky as striking triple 777s two times in a row. "Hmph. I do not care. He can go to that stupid event. We won't have any harm to ourselves, and my son would be more known for taking that event bravely." The stern man crossed his arms. He looked the other way, while Kayama lowers his head more, moving his body into a bowing position. "Yes, father. I shall take the event with courage and I shall not let you down, father."




As the black-haired young man packed his bag, he sighed. In more ways than one, he had hatched a few plans to "remove" his family and take over the mansion, however, he thought that he could not fail. He tried to escape his fate more than ten years ago, yet the consequence that lied before that could still be remembered. That feeling of being able to only eat once in a week, as you try to survive starvation, trying to avoid death as it slowly wraps its chilly skeleton fingers around his neck. "Well, I don't have time to worry about it now. For now, I'll just see what happens in that little "event" of ours."



It's only been 10 minutes, yet Kayama had already reached the school with no figure in sight. The darkness of the night shrouds the entire school grounds, as from afar, nothing could be seen. The only thing that lights up the area was the moon. He walks the road in silence, as he listens to the MP3 player connected with headphones he had recently bought himself. He thought that when he takes walks like these, listening to music was the best thing to be accompanied with.

Kayama had already shut himself off from the rest of the world and music was the only thing filling up his mind. If he had walked in literal silence, those painful memories would just come back to him again. He would want to stay in his best shape before returning home from this event. However, when he thought that he was the one to reach the place first, there was already two here; Ryuka Hageshi, current student council president and a screaming and pounding machine. Really, she's so damn famous in the school that one or two weeks after staying here, you would know her and will want to stay as far away from her as possible.

The other was Enya Katryiana. If memories served well, she was in the female's Kendo Club and is of the 3-dan. She was taught by her father Iaido and Iaijutsu, thus she had received permission from the school to bring her katana along. "Well, I don't really mind anyway. It doesn't make much difference who joins us. I just want to get over with this as early as possible." Kayama thought to himself. Once he had reached the two, he decided to lean himself against a nearby tree. He would wait until everyone is here.

She had only just made it to her classroom, where she filed into her seat in the back just before the grating sound of the bell, when it seemed she was excused again. School’s official start was delayed by a week, and the explanation did not seem to be immediately forthcoming. In the next few days, a bit of judicious internet use would uncover the real cause: the homeroom teacher of class 3-A had died of some mysterious disease. Curious about this syndrome, so unlike anything she’d ever heard of before, Rinko did a little more digging, and discovered that in fact, the teacher was not the first person to die suddenly and unexpectedly thus.

Pushing back her desk chair, she studied the screen intently for a few more moments, as though considering something, but in the end, she shook her head and closed out of the window, standing up and pulling on her uniform jacket. She wore the school’s uniform to regulation rather than adding anything extra to it—she already tended to get the occasional strange or disapproving look for her hair color, but she couldn’t do anything about that and she didn’t want to make matters worse. She… supposed she could dye it black, but… Rinko ran a strand through her forefinger and her thumb until it fell from the digits and landed in front of her shoulder. She kind of liked it the way it was, even if it was pretty weird.

Shaking off the thought, she pulled on her shoes and grabbed her bag. She’d been sure to pack a notebook and pencils in case there really were ghosts at the abandoned science building and she got the chance to interview them. She even had a list of questions for them, already written up, but of course the would probably produce many more on the spot, so more than anything, they were just conversation starters. If it was strange that she felt perfectly comfortable starting a conversation with a ghost but not a real, living person, she certainly did not realize it. If a ghost was mean to you, well… it was dead and you weren’t. That was a pretty major advantage. Besides, she’d also made and packed paper talismans, and you couldn’t just purify a person.

Tying up her hair, Rinko braced herself for the first human contact she’d have in almost five whole days, as she tended to keep odd hours at the dorm and didn’t really run into anyone. Throwing her bag over her shoulder, she trekked the half-mile or so to campus, making a beeline for the Tanaka Science Building, now derelict after a supposed accident several years ago. She’d done her research on this, too, but there seemed to be precious little information, and no hint as to why the school hadn’t just torn it down already. Apparently, it had been the site of courage tests basically since it had been abandoned, and of course the popular student theory was that a student had died within and now haunted the place, seeking to drive out all intruders from her place of death.

While interesting, it didn’t sound like much ghost behavior she’d ever heard of, and unfortunately, Rinko was pretty sure this one was a hoax. That tended to happen. Regardless, she was required to be here as part of student council, and so while not in the least scared of what might happen, she wasn’t exactly excited either. Still, she conjured a small smile from somewhere inside herself and let it blossom over her face. Who knew, after all? There could be a ghost here, after all, and wouldn’t that be truly marvelous?

She reached campus apparently fourth of all the students, and blinked with some perplexity at the fact that one girl seemed to be carrying a real katana. Wasn’t live steel of that sort illegal in Tokyo? She’d never had reason to check before, of course, but maybe she would now. Not that she planned on reporting anything to the authorities if it was, she just liked to know things of that sort. Irrelevant facts, one might say.

“Hello, everyone,” she greeted mildly, unsure if there was something else she should say here. Probably, but alas, she knew not what, so unfortunately she just said the first thing that occurred to her. Since she was looking at the building, it was somewhat related to her observations. “This does look a bit haunted, I suppose.” It was certainly creepy enough.

Ryuka nodded and said "I see, so it's only for practice..." She trailed off, as she heard footsteps. She turned slightly to see Kayama Shinjiro. From her memory, she identified him as a senior, and also the Kendo team. They had talked once of twice before, but never really had a personal talk. Mostly greetings during meetings or things so trivial you would forget about it the next day. Not to mention he was a bit of a loner in her opinion. The Kendo team loved him though...maybe he was a really good leader? Ryuka offered a short wave of greeting to the said student, before taking out a roll call list from her pocket. She found the name of Kayama, and checked it off quickly,as well as Enya's name since they were here. Withthat done, she checked herwatch once again."Why won't everyone come? I wanted to get this over with quickly!" she thought in her mind.

At first, coming towards them shemistook the girl for a ghost. She had white hair after all along with a strange golden eye coloring. Shealmost panicked until she saw it was just the Student council's secretary. As the girl greeted them, Ryuka gave another wave to the girl, shooting her a smile along the way. "Good mornin-" She caught herself mid sentence, before correcting herself. "Evening Sakuraji-chan! They only met mostly in the morning or afternoon. Not really at night. Ryuka nodded in agreement to the girl's comment, and responded by saying "A bit?...It looks completely haunted! I feel like something gonna come out and just take over our bodies and then!" She shuddered at the thought.

Or maybe not... Was the thought that crossed her mind after hearing the announcement over the intercom. With a sigh she glanced about the classroom, it seemed most of her peers were quite glad about the delay. As much as she liked the idea of another week off from school she couldn't be happy about it, something just didn't feel quite right, plus it meant another week of no class and no clubs which meant she wouldn't have much to do. With a sigh she remained in her seat, waiting until she was the last to leave to return to her dorm.

And she was right, it was looking to be a rather boring week. Fortunately while wandering about she ran across Ryuka who mentioned some sort of test of bravery in the old science building, it was supposed to be for seniors and she really didn't believe in ghosts or other supernatural junk like that but she was up for just about anything at this point, plus she might make a few more friends.

In preparation for the overnight stay she simply packed a set of clothes to sleep in, some small snacks and bottled drinks, and went out in her school uniform and a jacket. Mai was both a bit excited and nervous as she ran off towards the old science building. The campus looked and felt a lot different this late at night, it was surreal almost to venture about in a place that was normally quite familiar to her during the day but almost alien to her after the sun had fallen. Her pace slowed to a walk as she neared the designated meeting spot, straightening her clothes and hair a bit after all her running.

It seemed that she was the fifth one to arrive, three of the others were seniors, though that was to be expected considering this was an event specifically for them. The other girl was actually in her class, her silver hair and golden eyes were rather hard to miss. She gave a wave to the group, "Uh, hey there everyone, sorry if I'm late." She give a slightly more timid smile than she usually wore as she approached the silver haired girl. "Hey there... Uh, you're in class 2-A right? I'm pretty sure I remember seeing you in class." Her smile brightened as she spoke, "We got dismissed before we had the chance to introduce ourselves, my name's Mairu Tamura."

At this point she finally took a few moments to look the building and general area over. Huh... Guess this place is actually kinda spooky... Her gaze wandered over to the other students gathered here, one of them even had a weapon. Heh, with this group though I don't think I should have too much to be worried about. She returned her attention to Rinko, "Hm... So I'm guessing you're here since you're part of the student council? Or maybe you're just here cause you're bored like me, heh." She tried her best to conceal a yawn as she began to stretch, hoping to rid herself of some of her drowsiness.

Shiese walked into the room with five other people. He seemed to have arrived only a bit after another girl with orange hair. She seemed happy and friendly. Shiese slinked into the classroom as he moved himself and his stuff to a seat and sat silently, looking at the others in the room shyly. He played with the chain connecting his lip and ear, just wanting something to do with his hands.

He'd spend the entire day yesterday debating if he'd even go to this thing. His sister practically had to push him out the door this morning 'cause he'd changed his mind so many times. Well... He was there now. Might as well stay there.

Jack only barely tuned in to the announcement. The seniors were to meet up at that old abandoned building, burned down in a fire many years ago, later on that day. He had to return to his dorm to retrieve a few effects first, but he couldn't help but think how great an inspirational experience this would be.

------

He arrived in the evening, carrying a rucksack filled with his things: night clothes, toothbrush, sketchpad, spare film, etc. He came prepared, for anything inspirational. He noticed a group had already gathered there. He smiled, content. At least he wouldn't be the awkward one, standing alone by himself. Jack strode over to them, giving a rather halfhearted wave and a slight smile. "Pleased to see other people came," he said.

He examined the building: it was godforsaken. Burned to a blackened crisp, windows missing, having shattered long ago. The place was forlorn, and seemed to radiate with despair. Jack felt a chill creep up his spine at the thought of going in there. However, he couldn't wait to see the place from the inside. This event was a sort of rite of passage for the senior classes of his school. And now, he would partake in that tradition himself.

"I hope you all don't scare easy," Jack said, teasingly.

Ryuka sighed, and checked off the last few people. Well, it was time to head into the building. It was getting later by the second, the more they spent time here. She drew in a deep breath, and then said to the crowd of seniors. "Can I please have everyone's attention? We'll be heading in now!" Her voice sounded happy, and excited compared to what he was really feeling...which was dread. She shot them a smile, and opened the door to the building. There was debris littered all over the ground, black wood, broken glass, and other various burnt items. She looked up towards the ceiling, noting the way the moonlight could easily get into.

She led the group inside, into the next classroom ruins. The class room was fairly clean, since student council had came earlier to clean it up a bit. The old desks were pushed to the side, and a blue tarp was put down for students to set up their sleeping bags. She turned back to the crowd, and then said "Boys will be sleeping on the right,and girls on the left." She motioned with her hands when she talked. "If everyone could please set up for the night, then we can move into our activity for the night!" She paused, then added "Oh! Also, watch out for broken glass. It's in that corner. And no one is allowed to go further up stairs, only the first floor!"[/color] She finally remembered to breath, then said "Any Questions?"

It was finally time. The event had started presumably without a full attendance, however, starting the event earlier was a smart idea. Time wouldn't just stop and wait for them to have everyone gathered up. It was getting later and later as they wait, so Kayama was relieved that they didn't have to wait any longer. A few people came here just in time, but when he noticed that they waved to the group, he didn't care. He thought for a moment that they might start throwing at him with questions why he didn't greet them, but it seemed that they did not.

As expected of an abandoned building, the inside were as messy as it could get. Debris decorated the hall, and while at some point it's pretty in it's own way. the fact that it blocked some of the halls wasn't really convincing. The burnt woods and broken glasses on the floor also proved a solid evidence that the building had an accident of wild fire and explosion before it was in the state it is today.

From the outside, the moon shone as hard as it could and brought light to various possible dark places, however, in the building, with the ceiling sealed tight, no light came in from above and only from the side do the light comes in. In the classroom they were supposed to be sleeping the night in had it's windows all broken, thus the classroom didn't seemed as dark as it should have been. Mountain of desks were stacked on top of each other and placed to the side. With the desks out of the way, the room seemed to have much more space for 8 people to set their sleeping bags in.

"Boys will be sleeping on the right,and girls on the left." She motioned with her hands when she talked. "If everyone could please set up for the night, then we can move into our activity for the night!" She paused, then added "Oh! Also, watch out for broken glass. It's in that corner. And no one is allowed to go further up stairs, only the first floor!"

As quick as he could, Kayama laid down his sleeping bag nearest to the door they entered from and dropped his light bag to the side. He wanted to sleep further from the others rather than sleeping in between or even close to them. There wasn't a reason why. He's just used to sleeping by himself and suddenly telling him to sleep with some other people he never talked to is just impossible. Right after he finished setting his things down, Ryuka asked whether anyone had any questions.

"No." Answered Kayama as short as he could. He made his way to the other door where they were heading out next and waited there, silently as he continued listening to his mp3 player while toying around with his phone for a while.

The president watched as most of the seniors spread out to do their own thing. She checked the time on her watch. 9:03 PM. She sighed a bit, a little discouraged at the time since they still had countless hours until they could return back to their dorms. Once again, Stupid tradition with their stupid haunted house crap and the stupid president that started it...How many stupids did she use? She pondered this as she placed her red sleeping bag down. It was slightly away from the walls because she swore if she slept by the walls she would regret it later since something might jump out and try to steal her soul. She paled slightly at the thought before shaking her head. Hearing the food announcement, she looked towards Enya, and said "Thanks Enya! That was really thoughtful!" With that said, she stood back up. Reaching inside her bag, she pulled out papers that were safely tucked into sheet protectors and began handing out to everyone there.

"Our first activity is a scavenger hunt! Around the first floor, there are hidden pieces of white cloth with the school name on them. Feel free to team up, but each of you must find at least 3 cloths to qualify for a ghost hunt on the second floor! " She said, though at the end of her announcement it was a bit forced...why the HELL would she agree to do this?! Ryuka had asked the previous president that graduated last year for help, and they had suggested going on a ghost hunt...Damn her, and her ways. Besides, they said no one ever went to the second floor...but for some reason, she had felt it would be a good idea to go to the second floor.

She cringed inwardly at the thought of going. Not to mention, she had brought candles to light the way, since candles supposedly encouraged ghost activities. Idiot...this was going to be the death of you...With that thought in mind, she went to one of the corners, and took out battery powered lamps that were here since last year, since seniors just left the lamp here. "Pick up your lamps here, and you can get started. Though please be careful not to trip or hurt yourselves. There is rubble all around the place." She trailed off, then continued "Once you have the three cloths, show them to me! I'll be hiding so you have to look!" She said again, a little too excitidly. Alone. In the dark. With ghosts. As company. Yep, she was gonna die tonight...Once again, she cursed the past presidents in her mind.
That was her only thought.

Lucius sat on the floor listening to all the announcements, and once he heard the challenge of the scavenger hunt, looked at the strip of cloth he had happened to pick up on his way in.

Well, he thought, smiling to himself, that's one down. We're gonna need two more if we want to make sure those people SURVIVE the next floors. Feel like a hunt, Maat? The golden goddess once again appeared in his mind's eye and smiled.

I would be a fool not to. And after all, it's your last year here, I'm glad you're feeling like getting along with everyone else for once.

With her statement, he stood up, pushing his body off the floor and rolling his back up so he would stay balanced, and raised his hand in the air, ribbon already tucked into pocket, making his eyes unfocus so he would appear to be sightless again.

"ALRIGHT, who wants to team up with the blind guy?" He said aloud, "I swear I won't be a TOTAL waste of space."

While he was indulged in his music, Kayama noticed that already a few people had decided to team up judging by their approaches and how the approached answered. Deeming that he has no need to be here, he sets off on his own. He felt that it's better that if he were to search on his own rather than going with someone, since he doesn't communicate well with people outside of club activities.

"Now... Considering the fact that Ryuka is afraid of the supernatural, I would doubt that she will hide herself and the cloths in somewhere dark. I guess I'll start off with windowed rooms." He mumbled to himself as he takes a left from the fork near the room he came out off. The dark and eerie silence was something he got used during his younger days yet it at the same time reminded him of those days. "Tch... Now isn't the time to even bring that up..." He shook his head slightly, closing his eyes. But the more he tried to forget what happened back then, the more memories surfaced. Slowly, he started hearing his own screams. His plead for food and water. His beg for forgiveness. They were all ignored. No one was there to even noticed his presence. All he could do was nothing but to scream for help.

The screams that filled his head drove him to the edge of his sanity, and that was when he wanted to throw a punch at the wall. He stopped near the wall, knowing that there might be a probability the building might crumble down due to his strong punch. He calmed himself down and leaned against the wall for a moment. "This is why I don't dark places like these... They just come back more often..."

As Kayama searched, he finally found a piece of the cloth with a name that he could recognize anywhere at all. "Nadeshiko Academy... Jackpot." The white cloth was lying in wait under the lights shone by the moonlight, and although it was quite dim, the color of the cloth was bright enough for just about anyone with healthy eyes to find them. "Looks like I was right that she wouldn't hide it somewhere without light. Now I just need to find two m-" Suddenly, a voice rang inside his head, causing tremendous amount of pain. "Argh! W-What.... is this?!" Holding his head tightly, he fell to his knees. He laid his body next to the wall and tried to focus on resisting the pain.

It didn't stop.

An unknown language continues to ring in his head, as Kayama forces himself not to scream as it would only bring about unnecessary help. "Yuia ja ha sein ga moir... Rateile ielu ka ja..." The same sentence repeats over and over again. Kayama eventually falls down and shrunk into a ball, still holding his head. "What... What the hell is this... I can't... understand this..." Thinking that it would never end, Kayama could only continue to resist, still clinging onto the hope that he will be eventually free from this pain.

But then, something happened. Just as when the pain got more worse, he could understand part of the sentence, as if his brain tried it's best to translate the sentence and somehow succeeded. "Argh... H-Huh? I... could understand... it... How... Argh!" The pain continues on, not letting up any moment at all. What actually was about a minute seemed to be hours long. This pain couldn't compare to what he went through last time yet it's like a new type of pain to him. Miraculously, the pain slowly disappeared. However, before it ended, it screamed it's final sentence. "Gai yua Tayles te ja sa!"




It has been about ten minutes after he had found the second cloth, but he was still thinking about what happened when he found the first. "Gai yua Tayles te ja sa... huh... Why couldn't I understand the last one?" Indeed. That last one was the only one he couldn't understand. The sentences that repeated before that was "I am here... Call me now...", but then again, the sentence itself was weird already. "What did it mean? I am here, call me now... Well, no use trying to understand it. I'll just find the third piece and be on my way. This event had been a disaster so far." Just as he said it, he found the third piece.

Turning to a right, he had found one lying idly in the middle of the hallway, obviously waiting for someone to pick it up. Kayama approached to pick the white cloth up, but as he knelt down to take it, he felt a presence. A sinister presence that aimed to kill... or rather, to take over. He quickly lifted his head up and found a black shadowy creature standing still across the hallway. He took a guarding stance, while staring at it's wide round white eyes. It never blinked. It swung around it's arms lazily and had a lazy stance. Just as when Kayama thought his mind was doing tricks on him, the creature jumped.

Kayama quickly dodged back, bewildered by the sudden action of the creature. He wasn't given time to rest. The creature continued it's attack and charged at him, it's arms flinging at the back while it ran. Kayama knew he couldn't dodge and so he resorted to guarding, knowing nothing what this creature might do. But, just as when he thought he would be attacked, he heard a loud slice, followed by a wail. He opened his eyes closely and found a black cape was facing him from the back.

Obviously, Kayama was confused. What was this thing that popped out of nowhere? What was the thing that attacked him? But, he didn't voiced out his questions. The cape spun and turned around, revealing a giant monster with it's mouth hanging. Coffins were floating around it's shoulders and it was holding a blade that looks like a ninjato. It wore something similar to a tight suit and a belt with a skull in its buckler. Red belts was wrapped around both of its shoulders and the chest.

They both stared at each other. Kayama felt something like a connection with the monster and wasn't afraid of it. Instead, it seemed as if he was looking at himself. He felt like he was looking at a mirror, and that this monster was what was reflected. It seemed to him that the monster looked like a harbringer of death. But, it was only a fleeting moment. The monster disappear the next moment he blinked his eyes, and as he looked around the area, the monster wasn't there anymore. "What... was that..." Kayama, again, tried to forget this incident. He was holding the piece of cloth he picked up earlier tightly, and nodding a confirmation of mission complete, he now sets off to find Ryuka, who he finds the next classroom he decided to search at.

"Here's your three pieces of white cloth, Hageshi-kun."

Ryuka had decided to hide in the next room she found. It was covered in broken glass yes,but of course it allowed more light from the moon to shine in. It was comforting in a way. With a sigh, she leaned quietly against the wall. It wasn't as dirty as one would expect. She flicked off her flashlight, thinking to save the battery. She didn't understand this place...It was scary yes, but why did she agree to it? She could have just thought up of a new challenge instead of sleeping over here...What had possessed her to do that? With another sigh, she checked her watch. It wouldn't be that long until they found the cloths. It wasn't hard to tell that Ryuka was afraid of what hides in the dark here.

Hvor lenge vil du velge å forbli uvitende? a voice asked.

The girl blinked and looked around. Had she imagined that? She shivered a bit because she felt cold fear grip at her for a split second. She probably did imagine it but why in a language she hadn't heard before? But...She could understand it perfectly. It had said "How long will you choose to remain oblivious?". Oblivious? Like in denial of the ghosts here? She frowned slightly as she pondered it. What had cause her to think that.

"Fordi du er jeg, og jeg er du ...." it responded back.

She jumped at it and looked around wildly. Ryuka didn't like it...whatever it was... She bit the bottom of her lip, making the decision to leave and get the hell out of this room. Just as she was about to open the door, the door slid open. "Ah!" She exclaimed, jumping backwards. Through the moon light, she could see it was Kayama Shinjiro. She let out a sigh of relief. She saw him holding 3 white cloths. They were really easy to find after all. She took them and offered an uneasy smile to the senior. "Sorry Kayama-kun...I didn't expect you to be there...Good job in finding it though! It was really easy huh?" She laughed a bit and scratched the back of her head slightly. She was still flustered from earlier...yet it was quiet now. "Because thou art I, and I am thou..." What did that mean? She lowered her gaze slightly, looking down at her shoes.

Ryuka blinked and looked up, as Kayama said he would stay in the room with. She shot him a grateful smile, and said "Thanks...It's really creepy here..." Ryuka couldn't get that voice out of her head. It had came out of nowhere, and it wasn't even Japanese...it was some other language she had never heard before in her life. A frown played on her lips,as she thought about it more...until she heard it again.

Slipp meg ut! It said.

Ryuka looked around wildly, as she heard it again, a panicked look crossing her features briefly. Where the hell was that coming from?! It wasn't from Kayama-kun, who had gone into the corner to listen to his own thing, and it better not be a ghost messing with her...She shivered once again, as fear gripped at her. Though she let out a surprised gasp as more people came in.

The other girls had just walked in. She took the cloths with nod and just stared blankly at the piece of cake that was held in front of her, processing what it was for a moment. Blinking,she looked back at Enya. "Oh...Thanks..." She offered back an uneasy smile as she took the cake. She checked he rwatch. they still had to wait for the other seniors to find their cloths, and honestly, Ryuka just wanted to leave already. Voices in her head? No thank you, she did not sign up for that....Though... that voice had just said Let me out...She shivered again and shook her head to get rid of the thoughts.

"Sorry Kayama-kun...I didn't expect you to be there...Good job in finding it though! It was really easy huh?"

The blue haired president stood in front of him, his body stood higher than her. She was standing in front of the door, presumably that she was about to open the door too when Kayama opened it first. He looked at the president, accepting his cloth but staring down on her shoes later. It was obvious that she had something in mind, however, Kayama know full well that he shouldn't intrude her privacy and whatever's on her mind. If it was him, he would have gotten mad at whoever tried to pry further into the troubles in his mind.

"I'll wait in the room with you, if you want to. I have nothing else to do until everyone comes returning their cloth anyway." As he said, on the opposite of the room was the red haired girl, Enya and her partner, Mairu, the orange haired girl with her usual cheery attitude. She handed the six pieces of cloth in her hand to the absent-minded Ryuka along with a slice of cake. Kayama assumed that the cake slice was something cheer the afraid Ryuka, who they must have knew to have been extremely scared in this gloomy room. "A slice of cake, huh? I wonder if it will actually cheer her up. Well, I don't know how the girl's mind work, so no use trying to ask."

Spotting nice place to sit down, he laid down and plugged in his MP3 player. Randomly selecting a music, he proceeded to closing his eyes and drifted off into a light sleep, with his music accompanying him.

Ryuka sighed as she checked the time. The time limit had passed and she was a bit disappointed. Was this challenge really that long? Shrugging it off, she looked at the other students inside the room with her. "Okay, times up now. We'll go upstairs right now, since it's getting late." With that, she swallowed at the end, and felt her stomach do flips in her stomach. It was too much. She didn't want to go upstairs...it was probably more hanted and creepy and gross and dirty..and so on. Her mind was felt like it was spinning from the thought of it. Shaking her head, she drew in a breath. Giving the other seniors a smile she pointed out and headed out, a bit stiffly though.

When she reached the stair case, she gulped. It was blocked by a yellow caution tape, that would usually stop someone who followed the rules such as her...but this time she knew she had to break it. "Here goes..." She thought in her mind, as she lifted up the yellow tape and slipped through. It was dark in the stair case, so she flicked on her flashlight, and looked around inside the staircase. She shuddered a bit and sighed. She could do this...she just had to belie-was that a bug?! She felt a bug crawl over her shoe!

Dammit! She shouted, and ran up the stairs to the second floor, stopping at the top to wait for the otehrs as she tried to keep her stomach from flipping over.

"Dammit!"

Shouted the scared president as she ran up the stairs. The creaks the wooden stairs made as she stomped her way up just made the travel a bit more dangerous as the probability of the stairs breaking any moment has just increased. While Kayama was focused on his songs, trying his best to remember the lyrics of his songs, the shout and stomps brought him back to reality. He looked up and saw the blue-haired president trying to catch her breath, holding her stomach. He slightly clicked his tongue as he followed suit after the president, quickening his pace and reached the top in no time at all.




Stepping onto the boards of the second floor, he found himself in an extremely gloomy area, lit only by Ryuka's flashlight. Some of the windows were shattered, however, those that were, was blocked by the mountains of rubble pilling up against it. Closing his player and taking off his earphones, he shoved them into his left pocket and in the right lower pocket, he pulled out a rather small and very portable flashlight and switched it on. The light it released was strong for a small flashlight, and Kayama's vision in the room brightened a bit thanks to it.

However, just as the others were walking up the stairs, he felt something; both malicious and attracting. He felt as if there was... a dark force... around them, spying on them. Everywhere he turned he had a feelings that eyes were locked onto the ground and that their hunger to consume them was growing larger and larger. Obviously, something held them back, but the fact that he felt something looking at them was weird.

At the same time, there was... something... somewhere... that was calling him. As if it was begging him to go, and coincidentally, he had a feeling that he should go there. It seemed to be a very logical choice since the other entity is perhaps much more dangerous than this something.

After knowing that everyone had came upstairs, he took the lead and followed his instinct; to where that 'call' was coming from. If the group decided to not follow him, he didn't care. Somehow, he knew he had to get there or he would get into more trouble than he need to have already.

"What... is this feeling? I feel like... it's calling me..."
