A new star is rising… and nosediving.
Praktis lang ng praktis at keen observation.
Una sa lahat maraming salamat po. Hindi po ako gumagawa o gumuguhit para sa libro. Hobby ko lang po ang pagguhit mula nung bata pa ako.
Soooo I’m finally done with my exams. Here’s a little something to celebrate. I’ll try to get the 3rd chapter done by Halloween! I swear it’s way better, hahaha, I hope you like this, it’s a little nsfw. (But you know what, all Junji Ito works are nsfw, aren’t they?)
Also, pardon my lack of ability and time to redraw and add in the sfx.
The sun was high up in the sky when he woke up. He washed his face and put on his favorite tennis shoes, wore his bracelets, and cleaned his eyeglasses thoroughly.
The blazing sun greeted him as he closed and locked the door. He walked, whistling, with both hands in his pocket to the nearest store a few blocks away. Those who were in the streets glanced at him then shifted their attention to other things.
In the store, he was greeted by Tracy, the attendant.
"Beautiful day isn’t it?" he said.
"Sure is. How may I help you?" Tracy replied.
He got himself a loaf of bread, a can of spam, and two cans of soda. Fortunately, the stores freezer was still working so his soda was cold.
"Oh, by the way," he said before leaving, "isn’t it your birthday today?"
"So you remembered, huh? Tracy said smiling. "Yes, it is. I’ll be having a birthday party dinner tonight so drop by, okay?"
"You bet I would," he replied. "Happy birthday, Tracy," and he left.
He opened one can of soda and downed it while walking back to his place. The sun was so hot he suddenly wanted to sit. He approached an old cooking oil can lying on the sidewalk and sat on it.
While enjoying the ice cold soda he saw Tommy standing a few meters in front of him.
"Nice day, isn’t it?" he shouted at Tommy. But Tommy just glanced at him then slowly walked around. There was no fear of Tommy getting hit by a vehicle, for there were none left that ran in the city streets. What was left is a city of silence with the occasional singing of birds and barking of dogs. Even Tommy and the others were not who they used to be. They have changed into grotesque, hairless, corpse-white creatures that walked aimlessly in the streets.
Only him and Tracy were the humans left in the city. The others were either eaten or turned into creatures like Tommy over a year ago. For some unknown reason, the creatures ignored him and Tracy.
"Such a nice day," he murmured to himself. Later he will go to oil depot at Lapuz district for their generators. Thankfully, the oil depot was not destroyed during the event. Power plants, however, stopped operation totally. Since then they had to rely on generators for electricity. Without those, there won’t be frozen foods, no ice cold soda, and no birthday dinner for Tracy.
"To electricity," he raised his can of soda at Tommy who was already considerable meters away and downed its last contents.
A rare book by Dr. Maximo Ramos, The Aswang Syncrasy in Philippine Folklore. Additional research material for me. Hehehe.

"Hermano!" his companion soldier shouted with concern, aiming a musket at the beast while their native friend leaped off a boulder to strike the beast with his sword.
