Alex was dead.

((Jeremy Frasier, continued from Miss Atomic Bomb))

He’d heard that a couple minutes ago. On the announcements. He’d woken up a couple minutes before they happened and he’d heard the crackling of the speakers once again and he’d sat down, figuring that it’d be best if he stayed still for these like how he stayed still the previous times they’d come on. Sat on the desk in the centre of the room he was in. Listened quietly as the person up top spoke off about how more of his classmates were dead. It was surprisingly okay. Isabel was dead, which meant another threat was gone. The others weren’t people Jeremy cared about. His thoughts had shifted to other things, namely the place he was in. Had he been in here before? Was this the place he’d heard that first announcement in? He wasn’t sure.

But then the person up top said his name, and the sense of deja vu he had felt back at the rooftop came back in full force.

Alex was dead.

The boy that Jeremy had spent over a day being with - the boy who had taught him that he couldn’t just take the people here at face value - was gone.


A face that he’d never see again.

The room had been empty. Silent for everything except for his thoughts. Considerations. Words going round and round and just repeating themselves over and over again.

The point was, he just had to speed up.

Keep moving.

No more distractions.

No more considerations.

1. Have fun, above all else.
2. Get to Emma. As soon as possible.
3. Find Serena. Make sure she's safe.
4. Figure out what the fuck to do with Alex.
5. Find Al. Say hi.
6. Find Clarice. Apologise for earlier.
7. Figure out who else should be on this list. Retroactively add them.
8. Find Josh's corpse. Give last respects, for what they're worth to him.
9. Find Jasmine. Figure out what happens when you get there.
10. Find Caedyn, get closure in that area, if you can.
11. Pursue hopeless venture of survival, if above conditions have been fulfilled.

Focus on the people already on there. Forget about everyone else, for the time being.

Good plan?


Good plan.

There was one thing he had to do first, though. A camera on the wall. A face now looking up at it.

“So, uh. Mom? Dad?”

Something he’d been thinking about for the past few days. Nothing big. Nothing noteworthy.

Still something he had to do, though.

“I’m… not sure if you’re watching this or not. You probably aren’t, but, like, I may as well try saying this, right? In case you like, are, and stuff.”

He scratched his head. Took a couple seconds doing so.

“Point is, regardless of whether you’re watching or not… I’m sorry.”

He paused. Breathed.

“For… being a shithead, I mean. I… probably said some bad things back then. Probably thought of some worse things back then.”

He stopped talking, for a few seconds.

He wasn’t sure what to say.

“It’s, uh, hard to say why I was. Sorta hard to totally remember things from back then. I guess it was because… I dunno. I disagreed. You said some things and I thought some other things and those things really didn’t go well together. I wanted to defend myself, we both thought we were in the right, and…”

One last pause.

“Point is, I’m sorry. If that’s worth anything to you, then I’ll take that, I guess.”

Silence filled the room again.
