The Last Light We Saw Before The Battle Begins
Everyone gathered in the living room and I started talking:
"What I found out was this, the creature seems to have bad hearing because it could have attacked me at any time but it only attacked when I opened the door and it saw me."
"But Satori we were silent." Keita questioned.
"Even so, anyone would hear someone opening and closing doors and I was listening to you mess around in the kitchen Keita." I explained. "But the bad thing is that they only make noise when they're going to attack because if I had heard them I wouldn't have opened the door."
It was getting even darker.
Hana looked down the street and said:
"Better start making dinner we haven't eaten since morning."
"Yeah what's dinner?" Rika perked up.
"Rika, you will make dinner." Hana ordered.
"Huh, why me?" Rika was pissed off.
"You haven't done anything all day besides complaining, you also have to help." Hana looks proud to say this.
"If that's the problem then Saya hasn't done anything but apologize all day." Rika kept complaining.
"Sorry for being useless." Saya apologized.
Hana and Rika continued arguing until Rika remembered that she was hungry and went to make everyone's dinner.
After ten minutes she came back with a plate of ramen for each one everyone looked at her with a serious face and she said:
"I have never cooked food before I just followed the instructions on the package." Rika made an excuse looking at the walls.
Everyone started eating and looked like they were very hungry after a tiring and confusing day like this, anyone would be, after dinner I went into the kitchen and got some candles so it wouldn't get too dark.
Then night came we all went up to try to sleep the boys would be in my room and the girls in the room that nobody was using.
I lit the candle in my room and lay down on my bed while Keita and Hideki lay on the floor on the roll-up mattresses I had saved.
"What a crazy day right guys?" Hideki started the conversation.
"Yeah" Keita agreed.
"Do you have any theories of what might have happened?" I asked.
"No idea maybe it was a supernatural force, Aliens or divine punishment." Hideki made an assumption.
"Who knows man, what matters is that we're alive." Keita sighed as if relieving the stress.
"Stopping to think we haven't slept here in a long time." Hideki made an observation.
"When was the last time?" Keita tries to remember.
"I think the last time was right after my parents died." I wasn't sure about that.
"I also think it was at that time." Keita tries to confirm.
Hideki and Keita, we never liked melancholy so when we talk about these things we talk like it's any other casual subject.
"Damn man I hope my sister is alright." Hideki rubs his head.
I fall silent and start looking out my window at the street.
"Don't worry man she must be somewhere safe." Keita tries to comfort Hideki.
"Hey blow out the candle." I ordered.
"Why?" Hideki asked.
"Put out the candle first and come see."
Keita extinguished the candle and came to the window with Hideki, when they looked outside they were surprised.
A lot of skinny ones were walking through the streets with different colors some similar to what we found in the neighbor's house.
"Shouldn't we tell the girls about this?" Hideki asked
"Hana sure has noticed." I answered "Let's get out of the window before they see us."
We crouched down and lay down again.
"What are we going to do?" Keita asked worriedly.
"If they don't see us they won't attack us." I answered.
"What if they try to break in the house?" Keita questioned.
"Don't worry, let's do what anyone would do at this time, let's barricade the windows." I gave the idea.
When it was morning I was the first to wake up and went down to prepare the materials for the barricade, Hana was already awake and told me:
"Good morning Satori, I found a radio in our room."
"Good morning did you see last night..." I stopped "Wait a radio?"
