Chapter 1: Terryn.
HER.Since our grandmother's death, my brother talked about moving out. He said a new environment would be a great help for us to move forward especially now that we've got no one left by our side.And speaking of 'new environment', he meant Terryn, our family's hometown. At first, I disagreed with his decision, but I just found myself sitting in this goddamn car for almost six hours already.For the past hours, all I did was think about all the memories I had with Mamala, our grandmother, and with Mom who passed away three years ago.And it made me teared up somehow dahil wala nang ibang pumapasok sa isip ko kundi pangungulila.I couldn't help it. Ulila na kami. It was really hard for us when Mom died, ano pa kaya ngayong si Mamala naman ang nawala? Siya pa man din ang tumayong mga magulang namin simula noong mamatay si Mommy especially because our father is nowhere

Chapter 2: Anew.
KATANA. I found myself standing in front of a two-storey house beside my brother. Just like him, I'm scanning the whole view in front of me. It was a cool house, though it's not modern. It was a... let's say, a bit of vintage. Halos lahat ng dingding ay gawa sa kahoy bukod sa mga haligi na gawa sa semento. It's not the same as our house in Manila, because this house is way bigger than our home there, but I must admit, it was beautiful. Pinanood ko si Kuya nang katukin niya ang pinto, while I stood still in my position with our luggages. It took a minute or so before the door finally opened, and a petite girl stood there with... surprise expression on her face. Her mouth was wide open and I think a handful soil could fit in there. She was also immobilize for about thirty seconds as if she was some sort of robot who malfunctioned. When she get herself together, she suddenly inched the gap between her and Kuya and... unex

Chapter 3: New town, new friends.
KATANA. Kuya introduced me the people earlier. The three dudes are Jerome, Neil and Santi. They were my brother's friends back then and they kept in touch all through these years that passed. They also remembered me when I was still a kid when even I, myself, don't. They even stayed for a sleepover dahil miss na miss daw nila ang isa't-isa. Ang babae naman kanina, si Nana Neli, she was my brother's nanny and Ynah is her daughter. They were also the ones who took care of the house when we were in Manila so they lived here for almost 16 years. Kaya naman nag-desisyon si Kuya na hindi na sila paalisin pa. I mean, it's a win-win situation. Walang bahay sina Nana Neli kaya pabor sa kanila iyon. Kami naman ni Kuya, magkakaroon kami ng kasama. Nana Neli was even more than willing to work for us dahil napakarami raw naitulong ng pamilya namin sa kanila. Turns out, Mamala gave Ynah a scholarship kaya napaka-thankful ni Nana Neli. I didn't k

Chapter 4: Run.
KATANA. Days went by smoothly at namalayan ko na lang ay pumapasok na ulit ako sa school. Si Kuya ang umasikaso ng lahat at tulad ko, nag-aaral siya ulit. He's pursuing his course in Manila— engineering. Habang ako, Grafe 12 student.Nagkaroon ako ng ilang kaibigan sa eskwelahan, pero ang pinaka-close sa akin ay si Santi at Daryl. Daryl and I are classmates— unfortunately. And he just wouldn't stop pestering my life. Maging si Santi ay tuwang-tuwa kapag pinag-ti-trip-an ako. Mga siraulo. I remember this one time na kinuhanan kami ng dugo ng school. I didn't know what it was for pero sabi, requirement daw ng eskwelahan. I was scared of needles kaya matagal na pilitan ang nangyari. Matapos no'n, hindi na 'ko tinigilan ng dalawa. Maghapon ata nila akong inasar tungkol doon. Unti-unti ko na ring nagugustuhan ang pagtira namin ni Kuya rito dahil tulad nina Mamala at Mommy, napaka-maalaga ni Nana Neli sa amin. Parati n

Chapter 5: A helping hand and a monster.
KATANA.Hindi ko na napansin kung nasaang parte na ako ng perya. Pero ang unang pumasok sa isip ko ay ang tumakbo patungo sa parking lot sa pag-aasam na naroon sina Kuya at hinihintay ako. On my way there, I saw long metal pipes on the ground— probably some parts of one of the unavailable rides. I didn't know what has gotten into me but I picked two of the pipes and continued running. Minsan pa akong napapalingon sa likod ko but whenever I do, halos bumigay ang mga tuhod ko sa tuwing nakikita ko ang mga mapupulang mata ng mga taong humahabol sa amin. Saka ko lang din napansin na marami ring mga sugat ang mga humahabol sa amin. Puno sila ng mga dugo at parang bali-bali na ang mga buto. It was as if... they were zombies...No... That can't be...I shrugged the thoughts off my head and continued running. Nang marating ko ang parking lot, naiiyak akong nagpa-ikot-ikot sa pwesto ko para hanapin sina Kuya. "KAT

Chapter 6: Plan.
KATANA.The woman on top of me was like a maniac. She was trying hard to bite my neck but I was also giving my all to fight back. And although her eyes scare the hell out of me, I tried my best to get her off of me. "KATANA!" I heard Jeran's voice, pero hindi ko maigalaw ang ulo ko para tingnan siya dahil sa ginang na nasa ibabaw ko. "Help me!” sigaw ko habang umiiyak at pilit na inilalayo ang mukha ng babae sa akin. "Jeran!" The woman was really eager to hurt me, but as her head hung lower down my neck, a long pipe hit her head and she flew away like a bird that was hit by a stone in an instant. Imbis na tumayo ako kaagad, napatitig lang ako sa maitim na langit habang umiiyak. Kung hindi pa ako hinila ng dalawang pares ng kamay, hindi ako makakatayo kaagad. "Katana! Katana!" Jeran called out as he tapped my cheeks nonstop. Pero imbis na pansinin siya ay napaiyak lang ako ng napaiyak. The woma

Chapter 7: Saving Jehanna (Part 1)
Everyone agreed on my plan, so the first step we should do now is to go home.Usually, it will only take us twenty minutes to go home from the amusement park. But the road was, unfortunately, in disaster right now and it's taking us long. Right now, we've been in this van for half an hour already.When I peeked outside the window, it was the same view.There were cars everywhere. Lahat ay nakahinto at nakaharang sa kalsada. Ang iba ay nakabukas, senyales na wala na ang may-ari sa loob, habang ang iba ay nag-aapoy na.The owners of the cars probably left in a hurry, or maybe... they're already dead undead.Yes.It's hard to explain, but that's that.If you were bitten, you should be dead, but you wouldn't, so you'll be undead because you're no longer alive.Get it?Even I, myself, don't understand it.

Chapter 8: Saving Jehanna (Part 2)
KATANA.It was probably because of adrenaline, but whatever his reasons are, I want to shove Jerome's face off the ground for making such a dumb move.I tried to stop him— both Jeran and I did— but he was so eager to save his sister that he didn't even thought of what might happen next when he attacked the zombie on top of Jehanna, unarmed."Tangina!" sigaw ko nang siya naman ang dakmain ng zombie. "Ang bobo, ampota! Susugod-sugod, wala namang armas!" galit kong bulalas at naghanap ng maaring gawing panlaban.I wandered my eyes around the dark alley to look for something I could use as a weapon, but the dim light from a distance wasn't enough for me to see things clearly. Mabuti na lang at inabutan na ako ni Jeran ng isang mahabang kahoy. Nang tingnan ko kung ano ang hawak niya, nakahinga ako nang maluwag ng makitang isa iyong mahabang tubo na gawa sa bakal."You go get Jehanna

Chapter 9: Who's to blame?
KATANA.The whole van smelled blood and dirt and sweat, but no one's complaining about it.Even Belle and Sandra were quiet about it— at nakakapanibago iyon dahil sobrang aarte nila.We were just silent as my brother drove the car, and it was the type of silence that's calming.I was leaning on my seat and my gaze is outside. Tulad ng mga naunang nadaanan namin, magulo na ang kalsadang tinatahak namin pauwi. Nagkalat ang mga nag-aapoy na kotse at dugo sa paligid, at nakakatakot iyong tingnan."G-Guys..." Ynah suddenly uttered, breaking the silence. All of us turned our heads towards her direction, ready to listen for what she might say. "W-What if the zombies already reached our neighborhood?" she asked, voice's trembling and eyes are brimming with tears. "P-Pa'no si Nanay? Pa'no kung... pinasok 'yong bahay tapos... tapos...""Ynah..." Neil called out. "'Wag ka munan

Chapter 10: Here's the scheme.
KATANA.11 PM nang makarating kami sa bahay. Bago kami tuluyang bumaba ng van, siniguro muna naming walang mga zombie ang nasa paligid ng bahay bago kami pumasok sa loob. Dahan-dahan lang din ang bawat galaw namin sa takot na baka hindi na si Nana Neli ang maabutan namin doon.Ynah was offended by that, of course, pero wala siyang magawa. It's better safe than sorry, after all. Thankfully, si Nana Neli pa rin naman ang naabutan namin sa bahay. Nag-panic pa siya ng makita ang mga itsura namin dahil wala pa pala siyang alam sa nangyayari sa labas. Nahirapan din kaming magpaliwanag sa kanya dahil iniisip niyang nababaliw na kami."Nana, totoo po ang sinasabi namin!" Kuya blurted out with a frown, face-palming himself. "Sa tingin niyo po ba gagawa kami ng ganoo
