Black Magic

One night, after dinner.... 4 lou yeh friends of mine came to my room to lepak. It was our past time to hang out in someones room to play cards, watch movie or just have a chat and then go out to have a supper while we were staying in the hostel. Our rooms, were really small... there was a cupboard, table, chair and sink in every room, It felt like staying in a cell. There was barely space to walk for myself. Four old man and one boy crammed into that bunk.

As they were chatting they realized that all four of them had played black magic before. Shit, I was so excited... SHOW IT TO ME, SHOW IT TO ME!!! first, the 2 of them demonstrated to me. Old man 2 left the room, then I had to pick an object in my room. I picked one of my book in the middle of the stack and I had to tell Old Man 1. Old man 2 entered the room after that. Then he started guessing with the help of Old Man 1. Remember we were playing BLACK magic. Old Man 1 will suggest an item and Old Man 2 will reply yes or no.

Old Man 1: Is it the book? (wrong book from the stack of books)
*Old Man 2 whispers to the book*
Old Man 2: NO!
-I was impressed
Old Man 1: Could it be the door?
*Old Man 2 whispers to the door*
Old Man 2: The door says no.
Old Man 1: Maybe its the black pen
*Old Man 2 whispers to the black pen*
Old Man 2: No its not.
Old Man 1: Do you think its the book? (correct book)
*Old Man 2 whispers to book*
Old Man 2: The book says yes!
Me: WhoAAaAA... how you do wan... teach me ler!!!

After that it was Old Man 3 and 4's turn to demonstrate Black Magic. Old Man 4 stepped outside and I pointed at my eraser on the table to show him. I suspected there were some communication going on between them.

Old Man 3: Okay, lets start... Could it be the chair?
Old Man 4: No.
-I realized that the whispering was bullshit.
Old Man 3: How about that cap?
Old Man 4: Cannot be.
Old Man 3: Could it be Juju's(me) black underwear?
Old Man 4: No la.
Old Man 3: Maybe that eraser?
Old Man 4: Something tells me yes.
Me: WhoaaaAAaaaA... wei faster teach me lar!!

I did an observation during that demo... there were no winkings or whispering going on between them. Then they pakat and decided to play Blue Magic. Old Man 1 volunteered to step outside. I chose the spot of dirt on the wall... that should be difficult for them.

Old Man 2: Okay ready? Could it be that towel?
Old Man 1: No.
Old Man 2: Could it be the blue bedsheet?
Old Man 1: No.
Old Man 2: Could it be this? *points at the patch of dirt*
Old Man 2: hmmm... yes!
Me: Wah... -.-
-this time they guessed so fast, so geng.
Me: Chey, Blue Magic and Black Magic also the same... not fun wan.
Old Man 2: Okay, this time we play White Magic, this one pure magic.
Me: Don't want la, sien de want to sleep. (reverse psychology)
Old Man 2: Okay, if you can guess how to do then I belanja you yam cha, you also want to know how to play Black Magic wan rite?
Me: Okay la, last one then I go sleep already

We continued to play White Magic, Red Magic and Black Magic again. "Oi, Fuckers!! teach me larr!!"... "Teach you what?".... "Mahai, 4 of you add up also more than 100 years old already want to bluff one 19 year old boy." They did not teach me how to play Black Magic that night, only after a few days I realize what a cheap trick it was.
