Henry Scott
Cafeteria




“This does not bode well…” Henry muttered to the boy beside him while fidgeting with his fingers. He always had a hard time standing still when something big was about to happen, something which had taken a lot of practice to master in his training to become a ninja. He could still hear his sensei beating him over the head and criticizing his technique and inability to wait patiently for the opportune moment.

“I hear ya, that little pink and purple thing gives me the creeps. No doubt he has something up his sleeve,” Gabriel responded with a nervous edge in his voice. “If he even has a sleeve.”

Henry laughed, despite being a bad joke, and also the tense mood in the room. But sometimes laughing helped relieve the situation of tension a bit. Looking around the room at the various students that had gathered, he said, “Well, looks like pretty much everyone is here, I wonder how much longer we are going to have to wait…”

The answer turned out to be a very short time, as only a couple moment later, the purple/pink devil himself. “Well hiya guys! Had fun exploring the first floor? Find anything interesting?”

“Just tell us why you brought us here ya little s***,” Meghan growled, “I’ve got better things to do than listen to you ramble.”

“Wow,” MonoMew said in mock shock, “If I had feelings, they might be hurt right now! But fine, I’ll get to the point because you asked so nicely!” His voice was dripping with sarcasm. “Well, I got to thinkin ya see, and I thought to myself, ‘They don’t seem to want to kill each other yet!’ so I read up on some mystery novels, and decided to give you guys a motive! Well, at least a motive on top of getting out of here of course.”

“And so,” MonoMew said among the murmurings of the students, “I have a present for you guys!” Pulling a remote out from somewhere, he pushed a button… and nothing happened. Until a moment later when Henry’s KARD vibrated in his pocket. He pulled it out, seeing all of the others doing the same with a look of confusion on their faces. “I thought you guys might get homesick, so I sent to your KARDs a video from home, let you see how your friends and families are doing!”

Henry watched as a file appeared on the screen. He touched it and it opened into a video. At first it showed his dojo where he had spent so many years training. He recognized everything about it, the cherry blossoms, the fountain, the shrine, the gazebo where he would go to meditate. Then the video changed, was filled with static for a moment before the image came back, but different. Instead of showing the dojo in the bright summer sun as it did before, now everything was grey and destroyed. The trees cut down, the fountain replaced by a pile of rubble, the shrine and gazebo overgrown with weeds and in disrepair. Then the camera turned to the doorway of the main dojo where Henry saw his sensei, beaten, bruised, and bleeding, and hung from the doorway by a rope in a noose. Then the video cut out, the screen going black.

Henry’s hands trembled. No, it couldn’t be true. Nobody was more powerful than his sensei, he couldn’t be beaten, not even by Henry. But there it was. Looking around Henry saw similar looks of horror and despair on the other students face. “Well?” MonoMew said cheerily, “Aren’t you guys wondering what happened? Well guess what? You’ll never know! Not unless you graduate that is!”

“I know exactly what happened.” Henry said, putting as much anger and venom in his voice as he could. “You killed him. You killed my sensei and destroyed my home, and for that you will pay!” In the back of his mind Henry could hear the voice of his sensei saying not to be foolish, but he didn’t care. His sensei had raised him since he was a small child, and he could not allow his memory to be disrespected like this. With a shout he launched himself at MonoMew, not thinking, only letting his rage take over.

The first blow caught MonoMew completely by surprise, and through the flurry of blows he grunted angrily, “Hey! No! Violence! Against! The! Headmaster!” With the last word he flipped in the air using his tail as a whip, hitting the enraged ninja square on the head. Henry landed on the floor in a crouch, and before he had time to recover, MonoMew cried out, “Special Calrissian Freezing Technique, go!”

The floor immediately opened up beneath him, dropping him into some sort of chamber about four by four feet. The ninja immediately reacted, leaping from wall to wall to catch his hand on the ledge about ten feet above him. MonoMew cried out, “Nope!” and smashed his hand with his tail, making an audible crunch, breaking multiple bones for sure, sending incredible pain through his hand. He dropped back to the floor of the chamber and was about to try to leap up again when a white smoke like substance emerge from small holes in the wall.




Mason King
Location: Cafeteria




Mason and all the other students just watched in horror as the fight played out, then as Henry fell in the hole which quickly filled with the white smoke substance. He had half expected the ninja to jump up through the smoke, but there was nothing, and only a couple moments later the smoke cleared. “I told you guys,” MonoMew was saying, “violence against the headmaster is strictly prohibited! I’d hoped that this wouldn’t happen, but oh well. At least that means the rest of you guys are that much closer to escape!”

There was a humming coming from the small pit which he quickly noticed was the floor of the chamber raising up. Mason’s jaw nearly hit the floor when he saw what had been done to Henry. He had been encased in a solid block of something. He could see Henry’s form on the side of the block facing them, his face and body frozen completely. “My god, just like Star Wars…”

“Precisely!” MonoMew replied cheerily, “Although without the living part. I can promise you he is quite dead! See, I’ll even prove it!” MonoMew’s red eye emitted a laser which he used to cut through the solid grey block at Henry’s neck line, then hoisted the cut piece to show that even the Henry’s insides had been completely frozen as well, although was a slightly lighter shade than the rest of the grey of the block. “Oh,” MonoMew realized all of a sudden, “I guess he could have been alive before… ah well, he’s definitely dead now!”

Mason felt sick to his stomach, and he heard someone say softly, “Oh my god…” Kiera covered her mouth with both hands and ran to the nearest trashcan, barfing up her lunch.

“Anyway, I guess I’m off, lots of stuff to do! Besides, all most nighttime for you guys.” MonoMew said.

“Hold on,” Mason protested, “You’re just gonna leave Henry here?”

MonoMew sighed, “I don’t know about you guys, but it looks like some pretty good art to me, I was just gonna leave it there. But if you guys don’t like it, I suppose I can find some place to put it… I’ll take care of it at some point tonight I guess.” Suddenly there was a ding dong that sounded throughout the school, and the TV in the cafeteria lit up. A picture of MonoMew appeared on it and said, “Ahem! The time is now 10:00 PM, which means it is now night time! So good night, sleep tight, don’t let the bedbugs bite!” With that the TV flickered and shut off. “Wow,” MonoMew said, “I never realized I looked so good on TV! Well anyway, see you suckers later!”

With that the students were alone, and mumbled amongst themselves for a moment, then Mason said, “Well, I’m going to bed. Just so that we don’t have people wandering around at night, I think it best we try to enforce a curfew, that people should stay in their rooms at night time. Just in case…” Without looking at the other students reaction he walked off towards his room.


Vanessa Bernardi
Location: Outside the Cafeteria




After all the students had left the cafeteria and gone to their rooms, Vanessa lagged behind a little, making excuses to stick around just a little while longer. When she was alone, she called out MonoMew’s name, and a moment later the little pink demon arrived. “What,” he replied with a kind of ticked off voice, “I’ve got things to do you know.”

Trying careful not to annoy the headmaster any more, especially now that she had seen exactly what he was capable of, she said, “Well, I was assigned room 212, but there is no room 212…”

MonoMew got a quizzical look on his face, and scratched his nose for a second. “Huh, I guess you’re right… whoops! Hmm, what to do… oh! You can have 201, Henry’s old room. Just put his stuff to the side or something and I’ll do something with it later. And I suppose I’ll drop your stuff off there sometime tomorrow or something. By the time you reach your room I’ll have your KARD programmed to open the door. Anyway, g’night!”

And with that the little pink and purple thing was gone, flying around a corner and vanishing. She shook her head in exasperation as she headed to her new room, the room who had once belonged to Henry, who she had watched die. The first day wasn’t even over just yet, and already things had gone completely crazy.

A new dawn

What could even be done? One student had been killed off quite easily, and Edward figured that it wouldn’t stop there. Someone was watching them. Not only that, but that same someone would only kill another for one of two reasons. The first was to make them fearful of fighting back. That if they refused to kill each other then he would kill them one by one. But that made no sense. Eventually if they wanted out then they would have to kill another. Unless… that same person was fearful of them standing together. That if they managed to cooperate then they would find a way out of this place.

The second was that there was an audience that wanted to see bloodshed. They had gotten impatient and so their host had killed one off to appease some viewers. Again, it wouldn’t make sense given these viewers would want to see the kids kill each other. All of it made Ed’s head whirl in pain. Now the question was who would crack first? Who would snap under the pressure of possibly being killed next? If he could open holes in the floor then could he cause spikes to shoot up through their beds and into their bodies? Fears would stack on top of each other and someone would cave. Either that or everyone would wait and then crack all at once and a murder spree would occur. Perhaps that was the better outcome though? Wait and see who would survive the massacre.

The one query that nagged at his mind was that of the killings themselves. It wasn’t a law that a student had to stop with killing only one student. Technically if someone killed everyone else, then that one student could go home. Now… who would stoop to such an act? That was the question of a lifetime.

He had two allies to keep him safe, but would either of them end up succumbing to the robot’s demands? It was entirely possible that either of them would turn and start attacking indiscriminately Still, it was better to keep your enemies close. At the very least they were more inclined to listen to his arguments. In the end, it could very well be the three of them who were the last survivors.

A new day would soon be dawning. That would be when more would become clear. At least, Ed hoped so.

Vanessa Bernardi
Time - 6:50 AM - Day 2
Location: Cafeteria




She yawned, shaking her head and trying to clear the cobwebs from her head. Yesterday had been crazy, what with the strange situation they all found themselves in, as well as the death of Henry. She hadn’t really known the guy, but he had seemed nice enough, and his death at the hands of MonoMew had seemed...extreme. She had worked with dragons all her life, and was used to her pokemon overreacting in ways, but for someone, or something, to be happily willing to kill in such a horrible way was beyond what she had expected.

She shook her head. What was done was done, worrying about it wouldn’t change anything, and they as a group needed to move forward. If the only way to escape this hell was to kill another person, they needed to be sure that didn’t happen. No doubt someone would go that far at some point, they needed to unite before that inevitable thing happened. Splintering off in different groups and alliances wouldn’t work, that would only further hate and suspicion between them. She made a mental note to bring that up with the rest of the group, they needed to all work as one with some goal in mind. Perhaps they should have group meetings as well, go through all that they had learned in the previous day, and make a new plan for the next. Breakfast was as good a time as any she supposed.

Pushing the door open to the cafeteria, Vanessa looked around. Empty, just clean tables and chairs all neat and orderly. The spot where Henry had died was spotless, the pit that had opened beneath him sealed and seemingly gone, just solid floor. She sighed, and moved on. Coffee, she thought. Coffee first, then deal with everything else. She used her card and the sensor to open the door to the kitchen, and the door softly clicked open. Empty as well she saw as she walked in. She had woken up slightly before everyone else it seemed. Searching through the dry stock she found some coffee grounds, and walked over to the coffee maker pouring the grinds and water in, then starting it, the soft trickling of water into the pot sounding familiar to her, almost comforting for her.

She sliced and toasted a bagel for herself while she waited for the coffee to finish, then leaned against the counter sipping her steaming coffee and taking small bites from her bagel. The bagel seemed so...insubstantial though, and she decided to make some eggs for herself. Maybe some bacon too, that sounded pretty good. Coffee still in hand, she walked over to the refrigerator, a giant walk in cooler, and pulled the door open. Time seemed to slow as the door swung fully open, revealing the scene within. The mug slipped from her hand, crashing on the floor and spilling the dark liquid over the floor, pooling and steaming in the frigid air. “No...no, no no no…” Everything seemed so far away, and somewhere, she heard someone scream…


Mason King
Time: 7:10 AM - Day 2
Location: Cafeteria




“I’m just saying”, Jade said obviously irritated with him, “that we need a clearly defined leader, and I’m probably the best choice. I don’t care if people don’t like me, I’m the best choice for the situation.”

Mason sighed, exasperated. “Sure, you have the training or whatever. But this isn’t your mother’s precious company, this is different. If you want to be a leader for these people, you need to have them follow you, and nobody here wants to follow anybody. I sure f***ing wont follow you.”

“That’s because you are a bull headed idiot, if you want to lead, be my guest. I’d like to see how well you do!”

“See, that’s the difference between you and me, you want to lead, I just want to be left the hell alone.” Pushing through the doors to the cafeteria, he was about to continue when he heard a scream. They both froze, then dashed towards where the scream had come from, the kitchen. Mason tried to pull the door open, swore when it was locked, then remembered to swipe his card, and the door clicked open. They rushed in to see Vanessa standing with the door to the refrigerator hanging open, cool air steaming as it mixed with the warm, creating a small blanket of fog across the floor.

Looked over Vanessa’s shoulder, his breath caught in his throat, and he found it difficult to speak for a moment. From Jade there was only a slight sigh, and then, “Well, I guess that's that. It's begun.”

*Ding Dong Bing Bong* “A body has been discovered!” MonoMew’s sickening voice came over the loudspeaker. “Please gather together to begin the investigation!”

Mason said softly, “Well, I’ll go gather the rest of us. I guess you guys say here and watch the body.

Thirty Minutes Later -

MonoMew hovered before the kitchen door, a sadistic smile on his face. Everyone by now had seen the body, the body of Valeri with a knife in her chest, sprawled against the wall of the refrigerator. “Well, looks like everyone is in attendance, so let’s get this thing started, shall we?” He pulled out his own Kard from some secret pocket or compartment in his body, and pushed a few buttons with his stubby little hands. “I’ve sent a file, the Murder File over to your Kards, it contains basic information about the murder such as assumed cause of death, time of death, and other somewhat important details! I’ll let you guys get started with the investigation then.”

Before he zipped off, Mason called out for him to stop. “There are some things that I don’t quite understand. What exactly are we investigating, and why?”

MonoMew chuckled. “Well, in a few hours, we’ll have a school trial to determine which one of you killed Rosalina. Till then, you guys grab all the evidence you can find. And….that’s about it! Not really that complicated!” With that, MonoMew sped away, leaving the students standing there in silence.

Not knowing what else to do, Mason pulled out his Kard as the students began to scatter and checked the Murder File that MonoMew had sent him. The information for the most part seemed pretty basic, but still might hold some clues.”

-- MURDER FILE --

The victim was Valeri Byrant. The cause of death appears to be a knife stabbed into her heart. There are also several stab wounds in the lower abdomen as well. The time of death is estimated to be around 2:00 AM.

END OF FILE


Mason shook his head, there must have been more to it than that. Going back into the kitchen, he stared at the body. Meghan and Declan stood by the door as well. “You guys find anything?”

“Nah”, Meghan replied, “I’m not really much for the whole investigating thing, I’ll leave that to those who are better at that sort of thing. Brooke thought it might be a good idea to have a couple people watch the body so that nobody messes with it, just in case. So me and the big guy were the obvious choice.”

Mason nodded, it was a good idea, the murderer could try and come back and tamper with evidence, so having a watch seemed pretty smart. Walking into the now warm fridge he found Thomas picking around with the body. “And what are you doing?”

Thomas looked up at him, then back at the body, poking his fingers into the stab wounds. “Doing an autopsy, at least the best I can do with limited time and resources. I’m going to lay the body down as well and try to find some more information, so if you want to see anything, do it now.”

Mason nodded again, remembering that Thomas was the ultimate doctor, so this sort of thing was right up his alley. “The murder file includes a picture of the body, so I think you could probably move it...but just in case…” Mason moved to get a better look. Valeri had died sitting up against the far wall of the fridge, her head slumped down and her legs splayed out before her. Her hands hung limp from her body at her side, blood covering her hands. There were several cuts in her clothing where she had been seemingly stabbed, hard blood covering the clothing, and a knife stuck in her chest right where her heart was. Blood had pooled on the floor, some of it streaking the wall behind her as well. Studying the floor he saw other small blood splatters. “All right Doc”, he said tiredly, “guess I’ve seen everything that I need to, I suppose you can do your thing now…”

He walked back out to the main cafeteria, wondering where he should investigate next…

Kasey Hotternell
Investigating a Cold Case


Kasey had been sleeping when the alarm went off, rousing him from a pleasant ice cream dream. The news that one of his classmates was dead made it worse. When he found out it was in the kitchen, he started to get mad. "Okay, who could have done this? This kitchen is supposed to be kept sanit-"

His words die in his throat when he sees the victim. Little Val, who he had befriended and made nachos for, lay in a pool of her own blood. "No... Not Half-Pint... She was a good helper... a good friend..." He can do nothing but stare, and when everyone else steps back to listen to MonoMew, Kasey slumps against a wall, his thoughts in turmoil.

Thomas begins inspecting her body, Mason moves around the area, and the others find things to do. Kasey just stares at the small prep table, where he and Val had been working just yesterday. He thinks back to when they had formally met, the door unlocking and the four girls coming in to see him in the kitchen.

"Maybe... whoever k... did this... maybe they used their Kard to open the door..." He says it out loud, but to no one in particular. He goes back over his memories of her, remembering her running in and hiding. "I just wanted to help, but Jenna yelled at me. And Vanessa just stood there and let her! I have ideas too, you know!"

"Hey Mason..." he heads after Mason, a dark look in his eye. "I think we should see if anyone had any motive to kill Half-Pint like that. I'd start with Jenna or Vanessa. They had some kind of argument yesterday. And someone who knows computers should see who unlocked the door last night, looking for a midnight snack."

The first one

It was bound to happen eventually. With such tight confines it was inevitable that someone would end up snapping and wanting their freedom. So Edward wasn’t that surprised… but at the same time he thought it a bit early for someone to already act out. It had been barely less than two days already and now someone was so desperate to get out that they went ahead and started the murder spree. He supposed it was due to the untimely passing of Henry, and that very well might have been the straw to tip the camel’s back.

All Edward wondered was why they were trying to solve this case. The robot had stated that someone would be able to leave if they weren’t found out. Which meant that person could leave and get help from outside. Hell, tons of questions would pop up with the media wanting to know why this single student had reappeared and yet the others remained hidden. The worst case scenario Ed could bring to mind would be that the sadistic mew would kill some more students… but if in the end more could be saved this way, then wasn’t it worth it? From what it sounded like everyone would keep on killing everyone until they would be able to leave. If everyone kept on doing these trials, then eventually only one student would be left.

In an idealistic setting, it would be best for the perpetrator to not be brought to justice. To have him or her leave and the rest of them to wait for help to arrive. But this wasn’t an idealistic setting. And Edward wasn’t planning on dying yet. So he focused on something that he had noticed amid the initial commotion. It was a small lead… but he figured that he could make do with it. He couldn’t outright shout out what he had found. The killer would know as well and perhaps create some sort of alibi, or worse yet, kill him.

He was already forming a game plan in his head, but it looked like he needed to make some new friends.
