Chapter 14:

Return

Reset?


During that night, I remembered that incident again.Bookmark here

“Hey, you! Could you give me the drug now? I don't want to be here any longer!”
Bookmark here

“Leon... You can't imagine how much I hate you...” Fynn said threateningly.
Bookmark here

“Oh, I sure do! After all, I hate you even more.” I responded with a mocking smirk.
Bookmark here

“Now open your mouth...” uncle ordered as he was about to put the drug in my mouth.
Bookmark here

The time had come. I couldn't turn back anymore.
Bookmark here

“Wait a second.” Fynn said after he grabbed uncle's arm.
Bookmark here

“What are you doing?” uncle asked with an intimidating glare.
Bookmark here

“Yeah, what are you doing? Wasn't it your goal to drug me? Wait, let me guess... Are you perhaps getting cold feet?” and again, I mocked him.
Bookmark here

I suppose making fun of Fynn no matter the situation became second nature to me.
Bookmark here

Slap!
Bookmark here

“Watch your mouth or I'll slap you.”
Bookmark here

The heck? Did you just slap me despite saying that?
Bookmark here

“Ptu!”
Bookmark here

He didn't slap me with great force but it was enough to make me spit blood.
Bookmark here

“Hey, that's enough.” uncle calmly tried to stop the abuse.
Bookmark here

“Don't get on my nerves, okay? Just wait for your turn.”
Bookmark here

Showing no resistance, uncle faded slowly into the back.
Bookmark here

“And you two. Come here, already.”
Bookmark here

At his command, two people emerged from the dark and stood beside Fynn.
Bookmark here

“Heh, I was starting to wonder where the two of you were.” I commented.
Bookmark here

“As if I would miss out on this fun.” Anna replied playfully while holding my chin with her hand.
Bookmark here

“Still smiling? Seems like you don't understand your current situation.” Jack said as he cracked his fingers with a wicked grin.
Bookmark here

Ah shit, here we go.
Bookmark here

Bam!
Bookmark here

“Argh!”
Bookmark here

“Now that's a face I like to see!” Jack stated proudly after he punched my solar plexus.
Bookmark here

“Blergh!”
Bookmark here

Due to the strong impact, I puked.
Bookmark here

“Haaa... Haaa...” I tried to gasp some air.
Bookmark here

“Eww! To think that you would puke... Disgusting!” Anna expressed her disgust by pinching her nose.
Bookmark here

Based on the looks she gave me, I knew instantly that she thought of me as trash. But that was nothing new.
Bookmark here

“I guess you deserve a punishment for making me feel disgusted.”
Bookmark here

“Hrng... What- Ugh!”
Bookmark here

At that moment, I felt pain greater than any pain I ever experienced. Even greater than Jack's punch just now.
Bookmark here

“Uh! I feel that!” Jack shuddered.
Bookmark here

I received an attack that made every man feel the pain just by looking.
Bookmark here

A kick into the balls.
Bookmark here

“That's enough for now.”
Bookmark here

For the first time in my life, I witnessed Fynn trying to help me. Or so I thought.
Bookmark here

“It's time for the main event...” he announced joyous as he presented the drug in his hand.
Bookmark here

I guess he got the drug from uncle while I got harassed by the two.
Bookmark here

“Anna, get me the water bottle. Jack, bring him in position.” he ordered the two.Bookmark here

“And now to you... Any last words?” Fynn asked me with a creepy smile.Bookmark here

“...”
Bookmark here

I just grinned at him.
Bookmark here

“I see. Still acting tough even though you don't know what this drug does.”
Bookmark here

Then, Jack, who stood behind me, grabbed my head and made me face the ceiling while opening my mouth.
Bookmark here

“With this drug you'll lose your memories for an entire month.” Fynn stated.
Bookmark here

Following his last words, he made me swallow the drug and pushed the water bottle he got from Anna into my mouth. Only after noticing that I almost couldn't swallow any water anymore he let go of the bottle.
Bookmark here

I immediately took deep breaths to calm down.
Bookmark here

At the same time, the three turned their backs to me and prepared to leave the building.
Bookmark here

My consciousness slowly faded away but I still managed to pass my message on them.
Bookmark here

“You guys did it now... You dug your own graves...” I said weakly before everything went pitch black.
Bookmark here

Ring!
Bookmark here

Perfectly timed with the end of my dream, my alarm clock went off.
Bookmark here

I turned the alarm clock off and got out of my bed. After doing some stretches, I opened my window letting a fresh breeze in my room.
Bookmark here

Compared to the last few days, I had no headache and my body didn't feel sluggish anymore.
Bookmark here

I was completely healthy.
Bookmark here

Next thing I did was checking my phone.
Bookmark here

“I see...” I muttered.
Bookmark here

14 days passed since I was drugged. Uncle was truly a genius. The drug really wore off after 14 days.
Bookmark here

As of now, I felt no side effects nor did anything felt weird.
Bookmark here

“Heh...”
Bookmark here

I noticed a big grin forming on my face.
Bookmark here

Well, could you blame me? After all, I had all my memories back. Nothing was hazy and missing anymore. The experiment was a success!
Bookmark here

I was completely healthy in body and mind.
Bookmark here

I was back.
Bookmark here

“...”
Bookmark here

Now only a few hours passed since I woke up and yet my mood soured. Why it soured? Well, the answer was right in front of me.
Bookmark here

Lunch break just started when the usual three people barged into my classroom to check up on me.
Bookmark here

Initially, I pretended to sleep but they had the nerve to take some random chairs and to sit around my table. Feeling how their intense gazes, I gave up pretending and faced them.
Bookmark here

“Are you feeling better now, Leon? I heard that you spent yesterday entirely in the infirmary.”
Bookmark here

“Damn, that's harsh. I can't remember when I saw you the last time, man.”
Bookmark here

“Just don't push yourself too much, okay? After all, you're still recovering, right?”
Bookmark here

The three of them acted all worried but I knew that this was an act.
Bookmark here

There was the option to expose them but I still had to achieve a certain goal. Therefore, I forced myself to play along for now as much as it disgusts me, though.
Bookmark here

“Sorry, for worrying you guys. I'm fine now.” I replied.
Bookmark here

I tried my best to form a naive and innocent expression when I spoke.
Bookmark here

Pretending to be their friend...
Bookmark here

I was just this close to snap. If their were things I couldn't stand then it would be their faces, voices, the ways they behave and act, personalities, presence and the things they did. I could easily go on but I guess I could also sum it up in one word: everything.
Bookmark here

My eyes that were accustomed to look at them as if they were trash, my voice that would be usually filled with hate and mockery when talking with them and my perfect smile that always ticked them off, I had to suppress all these urges.
Bookmark here

“Oh, is that so? That's great to hear!” Jack said while he put his food on the table.
Bookmark here

Following him, Anna and Fynn also put out their foods and drinks.
Bookmark here

I saw it coming but were they really planning to eat lunch here?
Bookmark here

It was impossible for me to spend so much time as their 'friend' so I had to quickly come up with a plan.
Bookmark here

“Ugh... My stomach feels weird... Sorry, guys. Eat without me first, I'll go to the toilet...” I stated as I acted like I was in pain.
Bookmark here

“O-okay, sure...” Fynn responded a bit taken aback.
Bookmark here

Thus, I swiftly escaped the three.
Bookmark here

“Finally freedom...” I muttered to myself pleased after I locked myself in a cabin.
Bookmark here

Bzz!
Bookmark here

Then, my phone vibrated which meant that I got a message. So I checked my phone and saw that an unknown person sent me a video file.
Bookmark here

A crescent smile formed on my face.
Bookmark here

With this I could start it.
Bookmark here

It was time to get my revenge on those three.
Bookmark here

They will pay for not only drugging me but also for what they did to me and the others in the past.
Bookmark here

And I already had my first victim in my mind.
Bookmark here

It won't be the guy who wants his parents to notice him nor will it be the devious girl who likes to play around.
Bookmark here

The first one to pay will be the guy who is blinded by his own foolish belief.
Bookmark here

 Jack.
