Dennis is in detention. This has literally never happened before, so he's not a hundred percent sure when detention is supposed to end, but he's pretty sure it was a while ago. Probably sometime after the teacher left and didn't return. That would make sense.

 

"So at what point do we accept that we've been abandoned?" he asks the room in general.

"If the teacher isn't here, I say we should be allowed to leave."

"Is that, like, truancy or something?"

"Well, I had to skip practice to get punished for some bullshit I wasn't even involved in, so I don't care."

"I don't wanna get in more trouble."

"Honestly, I feel like if the teachers can't even keep track of where we are, this is sort of a point in our favor if we're gonna argue that we're only here because people are super incompetent."

Lev is making a face like he wants to vomit. 

"My parents are going to kill me."

Permalink

"I say we go."

Permalink

"...are we all gonna go?"

She's looking at Lev.

"My parents are going to kill me."

Karen is also pretty sick to her stomach, but at least if they all go they can only get in so much trouble. Probably. 

She doesn't stand up. She drills a hole in her paper with her eraser.

"We're not gonna be in less trouble if we sit in this room all night."

Permalink

That seems like a good argument to Lev. He stands up.

Permalink

With a profoundly annoyed expression, Asher opens the door.

Permalink

Then Dennis will follow.

Permalink

Karen will follow if they're all really definitely leaving together. 

There are no obvious signs of life. Most of the clubs have already wrapped up.

Lev has recovered enough from being in detention to realize that he is, in fact, in detention with Karen, whom he has a crush on, and he has decided to deal with this issue by staring at his feet and not saying anything.

Asher, bored, does a pirouette.

Permalink

"We should... maybe go to the office. If we're gonna call people to pick us up."

Permalink

"Seems reasonable." Asher twirls.

Permalink

Karen really really hates having to take actions without other people taking them first, but she feels like standing in the hallway for an extended period of time with a bunch of boys from detention that she doesn't know is probably even worse than taking actions, so she heads to the office.

Permalink

Oh no Karen is so pretty.

What does he do. 

Right now he's following her. 

Permalink

Asher smiles broadly at Karen. "What are you up to for the rest of tonight?"

Permalink

She's going to die. She's going to fail to get into the office and there will be no familiar people around and then something indescribably horrible will happen to her, and because it is indescribable she will probably be unable to properly describe it, and everyone will assume that it was all her fault and that she could have avoided this by thinking about the situation for two seconds, and then she will die.

"Probably dealing with my parents asking me to explain myself."

Permalink

"Sounds horrifying." He jumps up and hits the ceiling with his palm.
