John and I walked towards home. Walang nagsasalita, tanging tunog lamang ng mga kuliglig at bawat hampas ng hangin sa mga puno ang maririnig mo. Payapa ang gabing ito ngunit ang aking puso ay puno ng magkakahalong emosyon. My heart was raided by thoughts of vengeance and desire to finally reclaim whatever they had stolen from me and my family. My blood is flowing in my veins like fire that cannot be contained. "Vera, would you like to drink some coffee with me?" John asked shyly. Hindi ko alam kung nagpapacute siya or what. Gusto niya pa ako makasama? I bet hindi, I would rather think that he would only want to see me and my newfound powers. I agreed to him since wala naman akong gagawin for the rest of the night.
We reached their house. Pagkapasok ko pa lang sa bahay nila, my memories with his grandparents played like a movie in my mind. I am totally in awe sa lahat ng nai
Magpupula ang buwan sa ikatlong gabi. Hindi ko inexpect that it will be so soon. Rebecca's initiative to invite and accompany us to the tribe is not accidental but I have a feeling that she planned to take us there, on the night when they choose the next tribal leader. She is up to something. Sigurado akong pinaghahandaan nila ang pagdating ko. They are planning to kill me to finally wipe out ang mga tinuturing nilang taksil. I truly need to prepare. I need to awaken whatever power ang kailangan kong gisingin. I immediately tied my hair and wear comfortable clothes from my wardrobe. I wore my typical gym outfit. Then, I rushed to the woods.Pagkarating ko sa malawak na kakahuyan, malapit sa bahay namin, my eyes were caught by John's alluring presence. Hindi ko alam, why in my vision, John is shining. Siguro, effect lang ito ng maliwanag na sinag ng araw na direktang tumatama sa kanya. He
John and Angelo were both having a hard time processing the situation. Lucy is now sitting beside me while we are both staring their awkward faces. I offered coffee for both men. "Coffee?" I asked. Hindi na ako masyadong nagugulat at natitimang sa mga nagaganap. I am used to face unexpected and peculiar events now. Sa dami ba namang naganap sa buhay ko in just few days. I finally adjusted myself. Now, I am prepared discovering more uncanny things dahil for sure, many of these kinds is yet to come. But the case is not the same for this two in front me, they totally got shook sa mga nangyari. Hindi ko mapigilang mapangiti. They both look surprise at tipong hindi alam kung anong irereact."Sir John?"Lucy called my boss. I almost forgot that she has an ability to see through a person. Marahil, nakita na ni Lucy ang buong laman ng isip ni John. Then, the man's eyes wid

"How? Paano tayo magsisimula?"tanong ni Lucy kay Luna na preskong preskong nakaupo at nakasandal sa upuan. Luna's eyebrows arched higher than its normal distance from her perfectly sculpted eyelids, indicating that she is about to burst her bad temper again. Her attitude is quite fascinating and mysterious. She is easily annoyed. Divinities are supposed to be calm all the time and mature in the sense of thinking, but I don't know, why Luna is portraying the opposite. She is immature in her reaction."Stop insulting me on your mind Vera. I can hear you clearly. Huwag mong subukang sagarin ang temper ko."banta ni Luna while looking at her polished nails. I can feel the moon's immense presence in the room, trying to intimidate us all but Lucy, is an epic destroyer of moods, lagi siyang mukhang hindi naapektuhan ng charm ni Luna. For some reasons, I admire her s
Napaisip ako while hiding the real deal about the memory na sabay sabay naming nakita kanina. I thought we are going to Lucy's memories but why did my recent memory appear? Also, akala ko, the mirror is the entrance towards Lucy's consciousness. "You are wrong Vera. "Luna replied to my unspoken question. Nakatitig ang lahat ng mata kay Luna pagkatapos niyang magsalita. They are all trying to comprehend kung anong ibig sabihin ng babae sa sinabi niya. Probably, they are thinking why Luna spoke to the air. Hindi ko mapigilang matawa. "She is reading our thoughts. Kaya minsan, Luna spoke things that we don't know." I uttered. Bakas sa mukha ng lahat ang pagkagulat except Lucy who definitely knows Luna's ability to read minds. By interpreting Luna's response, I conluded that we are not in Lucy's dreams but mine.The strings are still glowing. They are all captivating and encha
Walang makapagsalita sa bawat isa sa amin. Lahat kami ay nagulat sa ginawang pamamasalang ng babae sa kanilang pinuno. Hindi ko mapigilang hindi maluha. I can't imagine the betrayal the woman committed due to her greed. It is too much and unkind. Maya't maya pa, lumingon-lingon ang babae sa paligid. Sinisiyasat ng kanyang mga mata ang bawat sulok ng gubat. Marahil, hinanahanap kung merong nakasaksi sa lahat ng naganap. Pagkatapos ng ilang paglingon, dumako ang tingin ng babae sa kasama niyang bata na kanina pa nanonood. Walang bakas ng takot sa mukha ng bata. The child looks innocent, walang kamuwang-muwang sa pagtatraydor at pagpatay na ginawa ng babaeng kasama niya. Makaraan ang ilang minuto, the woman finally became at ease. Siguro, natiyak na niyang walang saksi sa lahat ng naganap. Then, in all of a sudden, she grabbed the child and went immediately towards somewhere deep in the forest.
Hindi maipinta ang mukha ni Rebecca pagkatapos itanghal ng buwan si Lizette, bilang bagong itinakdang pinuno. Puno ng puot ang kanyang mga mala-pilak na mata. Lahat ng lobo sa paligid ay nakikiramdam sa susunod na mga mangyayari."Sumuko ka na sa baluktot mong hangarin, Rebecca. Ako na ang bagong niyong pinuno."saad ng aking ina sa babaeng nanggagalaiti sa galit."Hindi pa ganap ang pagkapinuno mo. Hindi ka pa naseselyuhan ng tunay na buwan."saad ng babae habang ngumingisi. Ano? Hindi ko nagets ang huling sinabi ng babae. I just saw Luna on her shade of blood. Ang bumabang buwan ay kasing ganda ni Luna but her radiance and divinity were both far from what I already saw. May kakaiba sa nakita kong Luna. She is more composed and divine in authority. In short, she is glorious.Muling lumiwanag ang paligid mas nakakasilaw kesa sa nakita namin kanina. P
Hinabol ng mga lobo ang aking ama't ina. Mabilis ang bawat galaw ng mga ito na tila ba mga lobong sabik na sabik kumitil ng buhay. Walang humpay ang pagtulo ng aking luha. Sa pagkakataong ito, I can feel the burning sensation inside my veins like a fire that is burning. May kapangyarihan na gustong kumawala mula sa aking katawan. I felt the urge to help my parents. Ramdam ko ang pagbabago ng kulay ng aking mga mata. All my muscles felt the flush of strength that rapidly flow from my core. Handa akong lumaban. I am not just in a memory. Maybe if I act now, I can change the past. Nagmadali akong tumakbo but John quickly stopped. He held me by my waist. Malakas ang inapply niyang pwersa para kontrahin ang kapangyarihang nanalatay sa aking dugo.Nafufufrustrate ako. I can't even let out a scream dahil sa takot na baka marinig kami ng mga lobo. Gusto kong sumigaw at pahintuin ang lahat. Walan
