A loud rumbling shook the classroom, everyone became immediately aware and cautious. I then ask them, "What do you mean by the Others are coming?"
Yamada gave me a pissed off look, "Are you stupid or something? It's the damn revenants we summoned! We unleashed a whole f###### storm of them when we did the séance!"
Kyoko then buried her face in her hands, "I really don't want to go back out there, it's scary..."
Kazuya then embraced her to comfort her, "It's alright, we're all here together Kyoko, let's just be strong okay?"
Kyoko fearfully nodded her head, "Okay I'll try..."
She was clearly uncomfortable with whatever we are about to do, I start feeling uncomfortable too.
Satomi then spoke up saying to everyone, "Hey guys I don't mean to interrupt but we got to get ready, they're waking up pretty fast this time."
Yamada agreed, "Yeah everyone start grabbing your stuff, it's time to hunt."
Everyone began equipping themselves with strange looking daggers and slips of paper with peculiar engravings on them.
I became confused, "Hey what's happening now? What are y'all doing?"
Yamada replied back to me in an annoyed tone, "What does it look like we're doing? We're getting ready to defend ourselves you idiot!"
Kazuya then shushed Yamada and answered me in a polite tone, "Hey chill out Yamada, he doesn't know. Shin we're getting ready just in case we need to put any spirits to rest."
"Put spirits to rest? Is that what the daggers and papers are for?" I asked.
"Yeah, we need them to defend ourselves against any hostile entities. They're some of the only things effective against them." Kazuya explained.
"How do you know it's going to work?" I questioned.
Kazuya picked up a dagger to show me, "These aren't ordinary blades and daggers, no these are much different."
The dagger had smaller markings aligned on the edge of the blade, it also gave off a faint glow that I could somehow feel?
Yamada began running his finger down his blade leaving a small trickle of blood, "These bad boys have a thin layer of spirit coated on, therefore giving us power to tear even spirits apart without any special training."
"What!? Tear spirits apart!? How would you even...? Wait how did you even get your hands on these things..?" I replied hastily while examining one.
Yamada began to laugh hysterically, "Hahaha they were a gift from a very special person. There's a reason why they're called sacrificial blades hehe."
Satomi urged him to stop, "Yamada you really need to learn how to shut your damn mouth already! You talk way too damn much sometimes."
Yamada smacked his lips at her, "Tsk whatever, let's just hurry before it gets dark."
They all agreed in unison, Satomi then turned to me and said, "Shin we'll answer more questions later, for now we got to fulfill our club activities as the Occult Research Club!"
"C-Club activities!? Is hunting spirits a club activity for you!? What kind of Occult Research Club is this!?" I demandingly asked.
Yamada gave a grimacing smile, "The kind of Occult Research Club that hunts down the Occult..."
I reply back surprised, "What!? What the hell does that even mean!?"
"What the hell happened to everyone in the last month!?"
Kyoko turned to me and interrupted my thought, "Shin you also have an important role to play that we living people can't do."
I asked her, "And what the heck is that?"
Kazuya answered in her place saying, "You need to sense out the spirits around the school, you can still feel them right?"
It then clicked in my mind, I turn to Kazuya and say, "Yeah I think I can, I can feel vibes and weird energies all around. Is that what that is..?"
Kazuya and Kyoko nodded, Satomi spoke up and said, "Yes sir that's it! Are you able to tell us where there at now?"
I took a moment to see how close by they were, they felt close but I wasn't able to give a concrete location, "I can feel them close by but they seem to vary in size, some feel stronger than others..?"
"Can you give exact locations or no?" Kazuya asked.
I shook my head, "No I don't think I can, but I'm sure I can follow their energy if I tried a little harder."
Yamada called out really annoyed, "Ugh this is useless, how about we just go around and hunt everything we find?"
"Yeah let's go with that for now, I just get this over with already so I can go home. " Satomi commented.
Everyone girded themselves with talisman and sacrificial blades, I could tell that everyone was a bit uneasy and shook. I felt nervousness wash over me, I have no idea what we're about to do but it's not going to be pretty.
So many questions swarmed my mind, looks like I will need to wait before they could be answered. Why are there spirits here at school? Why do WE need to clean them up? Why are we even at school to begin with? Why can't we just go home and be safe?
Kazuya walked over to the classroom sliding door, "Alright guys we're wasting too much time here, let's go clean up the school so we can all go home!"
"It's about damn time..." Yamada muttered.
Everyone else rallied in unison, "Yeah!"
Whatever's about to happen, I know that at least everyone else is accustomed to it... I think at least..?
