The First Hour.

It's 6:00 P.M. on a Thursday night. Normal classes ended 3 hours ago, but the clubs, and other extracurricular activities are just now getting out of school. At four o'clock, the Principal closes the heavy, steel double-doors that exist as the only entrance and exit for the school. At 4:00 P.M. everyday, all electricity connecting to the steel double-door and the school phones are cut. In order for anyone to leave the school after 4:00 P.M., they must use a Security Clearance Card, which are owned by all staff members. Any student that stays after school must be watched by a teacher until the time that they must leave, then the teacher lets them out with their Security Clearance Card.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

 "Alright, that concludes tonight's meeting," said the Brown Haired Boy, the Student Council President. The other student council members let out a sigh of relief that they could finally go home and relax.

"Thank God. I'm so sick of counting these ballots," said the Brown Haired Girl as she threw down a few random slips of paper and stood up.

"Yeah, I am too, I can't wait to get out of here, grab something to eat and get some sleep," the Orange Haired Girl said tiredly.

"Well, it's not like we can go home now," the Blue Haired Boy sighed. The boy had long, light blue hair that he had pulled back in a ponytail.

"Why's that? I want to go home and relax," said the Blonde Haired Girl. The Blonde Haired Girl pushed her hair off of her face, reached into her pocket and looked at her PDA. Everyone in the school had a PDA which held their class schedules, their grades, and it also could keep track of homework like a daily planner. "It's already 6," she said as she turned back to the Blue Haired Boy with a questioning look.

"Yeah? Why can't we leave?" asked the White Haired Girl, whose hair was frizzy and pulled back into a bun. She began tapping her foot on the hard marble floor, worriedly.

"How do we leave every other time?" the Blue Haired Boy questioned the group, as if he was playing a game.

"Knock it off, just answer the damn question," said the Boy wearing Sunglasses. His dirty blond hair, short, but not too short, hung over his forehead, touching the top of his "too cool for school" sunglasses.

"Yeah, man, what's going on?" said the Boy wearing Goggles, who is the Boy wearing Sunglasses' more socially awkward cousin, and is widely thought as a stoner because of his odd choice in fashion.

"I'm not going to tell you, you'll have to figure it out for yourselves. If one of you guess it though, I'll gladly say so," the Blue Haired Boy smiled.

The Long, Pink Haired Girl soon felt tears running down her cheeks as she began to cry, she was a very emotional person, and the thought of being locked in a school over night terrified her.

"Now look what you did," said the Blue Haired Girl, frowning. She turned to the Long, Pink Haired Girl and comforted her to the point where she could stop crying.

The Purple Haired Girl decided it was best not to say anything, sighed and rolled her eyes, as if she stopped caring already and accepted that they were never going home. This didn't bother her though, as she was never bothered by much of anything anyway.

"Knock it off with the games, I want to go home," the Red Haired Girl growled angrily at the Blue Haired Boy. She was known to have quite the temper.

"Can I just tell them? I'm tired of just sitting here staying quiet," the Silver Haired Boy asked.

"Go ahead, you don't need to ask for my permission," the Blue Haired Boy replied.

"We can't leave because we don't have a Security Clearance Card. Ms. Naoko has it, and she isn't here right now, she hasn't been here all day, that's why we might be stuck here if she doesn't show up," the Silver Haired Boy explained.  Satomi Naoko was the teacher in charge of the Student Council. "Also, there's no other after school activities on Thursday other than Student Council meetings, so we're the only group here."

"This shit sucks, I knew I should have just stayed in bed today," muttered the Creepy, Red Haired boy, whose shoulder length hair hung over his face, shielding himself from everyone.

The Green Haired Boy nodded in agreement and leaned back in his chair, resting his head on the back of it. His hair, which closely resembled a head of cabbage now hung down the back of the chair.

The Black Haired Boy stood up from his chair and walked towards the door.

"Hey, where are you going?" the Green Haired Girl asked him.

"I'm going to go look for Ms. Naoko, I'm leaving whether I find her or not," he replied as he pushed the door opened and walked out into the rest of the school in search for Ms. Naoko.

"How does he expect to leave without a Security Clearance Card if he doesn't find her?" the Green Haired girl asked the rest of the group.

"He won't, he just talks, it's best to let him do his thing until he figures out he can't get out," the Brown Haired Boy answered.

"Yeah, but the question is, will he?" asked the Purple Haired Boy,  who is quite pessimistic, and didn't have much hope for the Black Haired Boy, or anyone else for that matter.

"Who knows, the guy's a self proclaimed bad ass, he'll try kicking down the door and break his leg in the process," the Gray Haired Boy said with a smirk.

"A bad ass? Yeah right, he doesn't have cool shades like me," said the Boy wearing Sunglasses, the light shimmered off of his shades, creating a seemingly magical effect.

"... You're such a fucking weirdo," said the Creepy, Red Haired Boy.

"Hey, don't call him that, me and my cousin are cool, you're just jealous that you don't have these killer goggles like me, man," said the Boy wearing Goggles.

The Creepy, Red Haired Boy stared blankly at the Boy wearing Goggles, causing the Orange Haired girl, and the Brown Haired girl to begin laughing hysterically.

"I wonder what's taking him so long," the Silver Haired Girl whispered to the Brown Haired Boy. She was the Vice President of the Student Council. She's extremely shy and doesn't talk much, but she makes most of the decisions that makes the school enjoyable for the students.

The Brown Haired Boy nodded. "Yeah, and Ms. Naoko." Everyone nodded in agreement and looked at the clocks on their PDAs as they impatiently waited for him to return. When they realized it was 6:45 P.M. they decided to do something about it.

"I'm going to go look for him, he probably got lost or locked himself in the Meat Freezer in the Cafeteria," the Purple Haired Boy said, as he stood up and made his way for the door. However, before he could make it to the door, the sound of a text message startled everyone making them freeze up.

"Sorry, that was me," the Brown Haired Boy chuckled, calming everyone as he reached into his pocket to remove his PDA and check his messages. He scanned the message and then looked up, to the group. "We might have a problem," he said, worried. He was never worried.

"I knew it!" the Purple Haired Boy cried out as he threw his arms into the air, "We're doomed!"

"Be quiet, you don't even know what happened," scolded the Purple Haired Girl, who still wasn't affected by the possibility of being locked in the school over night.

"What's wrong? Is he okay?" the Silver Haired Girl asked.

"Yeah, he texted me, but I think you should all come with me. We need to hurry up and find him," said the Brown Haired Boy as he walked passed the Purple Haired Boy, pushed opened the door and began looking for what the Black Haired Boy told him about.

The entire Student Council followed the Brown Haired Boy to the teacher's lounge on the first floor and found that the pay phone's line had been cut.

"Look, it's cut, just like he said," the Brown Haired Boy said, partly explaining the text message he had received.

"Okay? This school is probably older than our parents, it could have just torn over time," the Purple Haired Girl said, still not impressed.

"Maybe this will convince you," said the Brown Haired Boy as he lifted the phone line, "It's straight, the wires aren't frayed, it's been cut, and if you haven't noticed, look at what's coming off of it."
The phone line was dripping blood all over the area of the floor that it was hanging over before the Brown Haired Boy set it back down where he found it.

"We're all going to die!" the Purple Haired Boy yelled as he began running around in circles before being knocked out by the Boy wearing Sunglasses.

The Boy wearing Sunglasses put his fists back down to his sides, "That shut him up."

After the sight of the destroyed, bloody phone line, and the Purple Haired Boy being knocked out, the Long, Pink Haired Girl fainted, falling into the Silver Haired Boy's arms, who happened to be standing next to her. He then picked her up, deciding he'd need to carry her around since she wasn't able to walk. "We need to find him before something else happens, for all we know he did this, but we'd better be safe than sorry," the Silver Haired Boy said to the rest of the group, "Also, pick him up and bring him with us, you knocked him out, he's your problem to deal with now," he said to the Boy wearing Sunglasses, who immediately erupted in anger.

"Don't tell me what to do! You think you're so cool 'cause you're always calm, but you're not the boss of me," the Boy wearing Sunglasses snapped.

"He's not, but I am, and he's right, bring him with you," the Brown Haired Boy commanded as he walked through the doors to look for the Black Haired Boy. The group laughed and walked passed him, following the Brown Haired Boy.

"Now I really want to knock you out," the Boy wearing Sunglasses growled to himself as he picked up the Purple Haired Boy and carried him, following the rest of the Student Council members.

"Do you know where he went?" asked the Silver Haired Girl.

"No, I asked him to stay still, but.." the Brown Haired Boy started to answer, but then was cut off after he saw a trail of blood on the floor. "We need to hurry!" he shouted as he began running, following the trail, with everyone else close behind him.

"O-Over here..! I found her.." the Black Haired Boy's voice quivered, but it was still audible enough for everyone to hear, so they rushed to the Courtyard, where the sound of his voice came from.

The Brown Haired Boy ran into the bloody Courtyard with everyone following behind. "What's going on in here? Why is there blood everywhere? Are you alright?" he asked as he started walking into the room.

"I'm fine, don't worry about me, but.." the Black Haired Boy's trailed off and he looked down at his feet.

"But what? What's wrong? Just tell us what happened," the White Haired Girl asked worriedly as she began to shake in fear.

"We're stuck here," The Black Haired Boy said as he fell back and sat on the floor against the wall.

"We're stuck here? What are you talking about boy, spit it out," the Red Haired Girl demanded, her temper flaring.

The Black Haired Boy looked up and faced the group. "She's dead. Satomi Naoko is dead."
