Knock Knock Knock

Rei looked up at the clock hanging on the wall. It was half-past 10:00 in
the evening. He turned to his other three friends who were playing cards
with his and their girlfriends. Rei's girlfriend, Kate was seated between
himself and Chris. Beside Rei were Li and his girlfriend, Rikka who was
seated on his lap. Beside Chris was his girlfriend Therese, with his around
arm around her shoulder. Beside Therese was Chi. His girlfriend, Mia, was
kissing him. Chi pulled away when it was his turn, but he was distracted.
He stared wide-eyed at Rei and Kate. They were French kissing. He turned
back to the game when Chris threw him a shoe. As he finished, it was
Rikka's turn next. But before she could start, Kate stood up and told her
friends that she was just going out to buy some snacks. Rei offered to
drive her but she turned down his offer. Rei finally gave in after much
persistence. Before Kate walked out of the room, Rei took hold of Kate's
arm and told her to knock three times so that he would open the door. Kate
looked at him questioningly and as if reading her mind, Rei told her that
there were strange things happening in the campus. Rei kissed her and she
walked out of the door.
As she walked out of the room, Li turned up the volume of the stereo. Mia
and Chi were already doing third base while Chris and Therese were eyeing
them maliciously. The game stopped for a while. Rikka looked at Li
longingly. He looked down at her with a raised eyebrow. Rikka closed her
eyes as if waiting for a kiss. Li still looked down at her questioningly
and asked her what was wrong. Rei, who was now laughing at Li whispered to
him that his girl wanted a kiss. Li finally understood and leaned down to
give Rikka a passionate kiss and they ended up doing third base too. Chris
and Therese looked at each other, then at their friends, then back at each
other. They started kissing too. Rei sighed. Chi saw Rei alone and feeling
lonely. He slowly pulled away from Mia and told her that they would
continue what they were doing later. He stood up and told her he'd be right
back and ran out of the room. After a few minutes, he came back with a
girl. Chi closed the door and said in a loud voice that the girl's name was
By this time, all of them were pretty drunk. Chi gave an idea of playing
a game of 'Spin the Bottle'. He seated Genevieve beside Rei. The two talked
and got to know each other faster than normal. Chi grabbed an empty bottle
of Don Perignon and placed it in the middle of the group circle. He told
Genevieve to go first. Rikka and Li finally pulled away before the game was
about to start. At first Genevieve hesitated, but after much persuasion by
Chi and his friends, she finally gave in. As she spinned it, it landed on
Rei. They both stared at each other blankly. There was silence. Rikka, Li,
Chris, Therese, Chi and Mia were getting impatient. Then, suddenly, Rei
leaned on Genevieve and kissed her. If it weren't for Chris and Therese who
pulled them away, they would never stop. Before the next person could have
a turn, Li grabbed a case of beer. He distributed it and they all drank it.
Mia hesitated to take some but after a lot of persuasion and a kiss from
Chi, she finally drank it. They were all drunk by the time it was Therese's
Kate was on her way to the store. She underestimated the walk. She
thought it was only a short one, but she was wrong. Now, she wished that
she accepted Rei's offer to drive her. It was also getting creepy. She
barely saw people, cars drove past her, yes, but it was almost like she was
the only one in the dark street. After a while, she finally got a glimpse
of the convenient store. Before she could take another few steps, a hand
covered her mouth and she fainted.
Therese kissed Chris after the bottle landed on him. Quite interesting
though, that's what they all thought. Everyone got to kiss their
significant others. Well, except for Rei, but it seemed that he was
attracted to Genevieve and she was with him, or was it the alcohol? The
game ended shortly after, but it wasn't all over. Rei and Genevieve took it
to his room. They were drunk and doing third base, or was it fourth base?
Li and Rikka also got down to business. They were in Li's room too. Chris
and Therese were on the couch in Chris's room, making out in front of the
TV screen. While Chi and Mia were also in his room, getting to third base.
Though everyone was getting down to it, the loud music was still playing,
in their own rooms, that is. In Rei's room, alternative music was playing.
While in Chris's room, it was
J-pop. In Li's room, techno music was playing. Chi's room was noisiest.
Hard rock was playing. The walls were almost torn down by Chi's music and
Mia's loud screams.
Kate slowly opened her eyes. She could barely see in the dark. Out of
nowhere, a shadow-like figure looked down on her and produced a knife. The
faint ray of light shined on the blade. Fear was welling up inside her.
Suddenly, the figure ripped her clothes off. Instinctively, she covered
herself and watched as the figure threw her clothes somewhere. It drew
closer and she saw that it was a man. The figure then positioned himself on
top of Kate and clamped his hand over her mouth. She bit his hand and
screamed for Rei.
Rei stopped what he was doing. He thought he heard someone scream his
name somewhere down the hall. He got up and dressed up, he also told
Genevieve to dress up. Together they went out of the room. As they got out,
they saw Chris and Therese about to knock on their door. They looked for
Li, Rikka, Chi and Mia. Rei and Chris realized that their two friends were
still in their rooms. Chris and Therese opened Li's door to reveal Li and
Rikka sprawled on the bed with a variety of sexual gadgets littered on the
floor. Therese blushed and Chris started to laugh hysterically waking the
naked lovers on the bed.
Rei and Genevieve opened the door to Chi's room, revealing the sheets of
the bed wildly disarranged with small amounts of blood staining them. They
found Chi and Mia asleep in each other's arms with Mia's head resting on
Chi's chest. Rei went to the bathroom and filled a bucket full of water.
Then, he went back to the room, and slowly crept to the bed. Chi felt
another presence in the room. He opened his eyes and saw Rei with a smirk
on his face. Before he could even speak, Rei emptied the bucket of water on
Chi, waking Mia in the process. Chi glared at Rei and shouted. All Rei and
Genevieve could do was laugh. Mia blushed and pulled the sheets to cover
herself. Rei quit laughing and looked at Chi seriously. He told his friend
to hurry up and get dressed. Chi nodded and finally, Rei and Genevieve left
the room. Mia got up and ran to the bathroom to dress up. Chi dressed up in
the closet. When Mia was finished, she found Chi standing by the door
waiting for her and she walked over to him. He went to the stereo, turned
it off and left the room with Mia close behind him.
As they walked towards the others, Chi realized something was wrong. Li,
Rikka, Chi and Mia all asked Rei and Chris what was going on. They both
said that they heard a scream a while ago. Rei asked Chi and Li if they
heard it, but they both shook their heads. Rikka and Mia didn't hear it
either. Before anyone else could speak, Therese started telling Rei that
Chi and Li wouldn't be able to hear it because of the loud music. Everyone
else agreed with her too. Chris also told his friends that maybe the reason
why he and Rei heard it, was because there wasn't loud music playing in
their rooms. Rei remembered that it sounded like the scream was coming from
down the hall and told his friends. Before neither he nor his friends could
say anything, there was a knock on the door. They all stared at it. Li told
everyone that it just might be Kate and was about to open it when Rei
stopped him. Rei told his friend that it couldn't be her since he told her
to knock three times, and that knock on the door was only once. After a few
minutes, when everyone finally calmed down and agreed that maybe the scream
was just two people getting down to it, they dismissed the thought that
maybe someone was killed. They all drank a few beers and when Chris was
about to suggest a game of cards, they heard a knock on the door again.
This time twice. Rei still told Li not to open it. Chi was starting to get
annoyed and almost opened the door out of frustration. He argued with Rei
about what's the big deal about opening the door. Rei explained the strange
things happening around campus, but Chi didn't believe him. He thought Rei
was just getting paranoid again. Mia and Genevieve stopped the two from
further arguments. They all seated for a game of poker. Chris distributed
the cards and after a few minutes, everyone forgot about what happened. It
was Rei's turn, just when he was about to put down his cards, there was
another knock on the door. This time, they heard it clearly. They heard it
three times. Rei ran to the door with everyone else. This time it was Chi
who was paranoid. He kept asking Rei if it were really Kate and he kept on
telling him that he had a bad feeling. Rei dismissed Chi and opened the
door. Before they could see who was there, the light turned off. Li and Rei
kept asking who was there but there wasn't any answer. They felt someone
come in but they thought it was only the wind. Rei felt something drip on
his head. They finally gave up and closed the door.
When they all got settled, Li ran for the light and turned it on. Chris
and the others stared him. Therese went towards Li. He asked him how he
turned on light if there was a blackout. Li just shrugged and walked
towards the couch. Chi still stared at the door as if something was going
to pop out. Mia had her arms around him to stop him from shaking.
Genevieve, Rei and Chris watched him. Something was wrong with Chi, not to
mention with everything else. Rei looked at the clock. It was now 12:45 am.
He worried about Kate. It was taking her too long. He grabbed his cellphone
and dialed her number. It was ringing, but no one answered. No one moved or
said anything. Besides Chi's shaking and faint whispers of fear, it was
silent. It stayed that way for a while. Then, there was a knock. Rei and
his friends hesitated. But they did hear it right. They heard three knocks.
The knocks were slow, but they heard it three times all right. By the time
it registered to them, even Chris was shaking. Rei slowly motioned for his
friends to go with him and see who's at the door.
They all stared at the door then to each other. Rei's hands slowly
covered the doorknob. Before turning it, he looked at his friends. Turning
it slowly, he opened it as fast as he could and backed away. Genevieve,
Therese, Rikka and Mia screamed at the terrible sight. Chi and Chris had
their wide eyes focused on the hanging object. Both could neither speak nor
do anything. Li just stood there too. Rei's eyes started to fill with
tears. He tried to fight them, but some of them went down his cheek as he
saw Kate hanging by her neck in front of the door. Her body was ripped
apart, from her womanhood to her abdomen. Blood was dripping from both her
mouth and her wounds. Chi, Chris and Li finally got back to their senses
after a few minutes. They nudged Rei. The four of them was about to bring
the body down when someone behind them spoke.
"At least she knocked three times."
Everyone else looked behind them and saw a man bearing a bloody knife.
They somehow didn't understand what he said. He spoke again with a smirk on
"Well, at least she knocked three times."
