Grand Ridge Academy - Outside the Conference Room@FernStone
It seemed that David's discreet manner wasn't going to last, whilst standing by the door it had opened and an afro-rocking gal stumbled out, passing David without so much as a mutter of "'scuse me"
as she twisted to pass between David and the wall. Of course David had moved out of the way, he wasn't such a dick that he'd block someone on their way though, again, no muttering nor thanks was given by her. The girl rushed towards the wall and stopped, probably waiting for someone.
Then of course in the typical American-education fashion somebody began to scream from within the school room.
That was one of David's most disorganised moments. Still being distracted from the girl who had exited the conference, his attention had been away from the same such room. A few seconds for his brain to register what had happened, a few more for uncertainty. All in all he was pretty slow to react and, it seemed, another development had occured when he wasn't concentrating. "The fuck?"Make that two...
Again there was a loud sound from within the room, this time it was distinctively a word rather than a primordial screech - then it went dark.
It was only for a few seconds... It wasn't like the lights had gone out and since David couldn't really see within he wasn't able to confirm his suspicion either. The light from the crack under the door suddenly vanished, in its place was pitch, black darkness without depth."The hell?"
muttered David, crouching down to touch the now normal
lighting for the door. With an index finger he slid it across the gap before turning the face towards his own, checking for any clues as to what happened - some strange dust or powder. There was nothing of the sort - it was a regular, trampled floor. It seemed, like what the Drunk had done, that physical residue was not left nor created. Well at least they ruled out goo-alien parasites off the list of supernatural causes...
David stood back up, and a good thing too since another girl had decided to rush out in a hurry. If freaky shadow puppets hadn't just played with David he'd have likely blurted out what he was thinking, a bad joke including pregnancy and an unwanted result... It was probably for the best he didn't say it, wasn't that funny anyway.
David stepped backwards to let the girl pass, this one was asian- and short, he looked her over for some sign of strangeness
but seeing nothing that could explain what had occurred within he decided to confront her."Er, excuse me."
he asks, staring at the girl. "Sorry but you were just in there. What- What happened?"
