((Okay, it's been 11 days on my end here, so if no one minds...))

And then suddenly, the moment was ruined.

For a moment, the air was filled with the screech of audio feedback. The same audio feedback that preceded the announcements every morning. Since it was very likely no longer morning, R.J. was fairly certain this meant something had gone horribly wrong. He released Mary-Ann from his embrace, waiting for that sick bastard Danya's smug voice to pollute the air.

It would prove to be a longer wait than he expected, because that was most definitely his Algebra teacher.

"Good afternoon, students. I've been instructed to read out a prewritten statement from Mr. Danya regarding an incident that has taken place on the island,"

An incident. That was never a good word.

"And I quote. It's come to our attention that one of your number has been interfering with their collar. This is clearly unacceptable. After all, we wouldn't want anybody refusing to play ball, would we? The student in question is Liz Polanski, some of you might know her. I'm speaking to you in order to bring an offer from Danya."

Wait... interfering with her collar? Did she get it off? They wouldn't need to make an announcement if she hadn't. They'd just pull the trigger and be rid of her. R.J. rubbed his own collar. Could it be done? Holy shit, was there actually a way they could esc-

"Should anybody successfully kill Liz Polanski, they will immediately be awarded a weapon from our very own stash of best kill prizes as a bounty."

...Oh.

"Miss Polanski. If you instruct anybody, verbally or by any other method, in your techniques, we will immediately detonate their collar. If we see you persisting in trying to break our rules, we will detonate collars at random. If you remain at large, we will send in a team to hunt you and anybody found to be allied with you down. We may also... We may also see fit to eliminate your beloved teacher."

...Nevermind.

"It has also come to our attention that Miss Polanski has recklessly destroyed one of our cameras. As a punishment, we will now detonate a collar."

Wait, what?!

"What!? No! I - you can't make me-"

A thunk. They were going to have Mr. Kwong hit the button himself. That couldn't have meant anything else.

And for all he knew, R.J. was the one who had been condemned. For all he knew, Mary-Ann could die right in front of him and he'd be helpless to stop it. He trembled where he sat, eyes wide with terror.

"I... I will be commencing this punishment now."

He shut his eyes tight. Oh shit oh shit oh shit oh shit oh shit oh shit...

"B148, Daisuke Nagazawa, eliminated."

Oh. Shit.

"This is your teacher, Kwong Lei, signing off. Kids, I believe in-!"

Somehow, still being alive didn't make R.J. feel any better.
<Mimi>: You are much nicer than I thought you'd be!
<Stark>: Shut up, fatty.
