Mr. Barr and Nat were pacing the office of the school behind the secretary’s desk. Nazz had arrived and was in the nurse’s office with Marie helping her until the ambulance arrived to take her to the hospital. Edd was pouring over the video from the backlot over and over and over. Kevin walked outside, barely on camera, and was attacked from somewhere off screen. He was then dragged through across the field of camera view and shoved in the back of what looked like an early ought’s model Toyota maybe? It was hard to guess at the little insignia from where the camera was positioned, but they seemed to leave the parking lot facing west.
He slammed his fist angrily into the table. Mr. Barr stopped pacing. He crossed to Edd. “It’s not your fault.”
“Yes it is. I insisted we keep going to school. I waited to tell him the truth about the night of the party until they got desperate and scared enough to do something like this. I’m the one who made

Kevin was now lying on his side on a dusty shag carpet. His head was still pounding. He saw cigarette smoke rising from a table to his left. A large window was to his right throwing light across the floor and wall behind him. The sun was already setting. Sure he was alone for the moment, he tugged at the tape at his wrists and ankles. They didn’t give, so he reached up toward the tape over his mouth. He would have to bite it off.
Before he could touch it, he felt his upper arm smashed with something heavy. He cried out as he heard and felt his bone break with a sickening crunch. He was breathing hard through his nostrils, and he managed a peek up at his attacker. The guy from the video. The one who had raped Edd. He was a lot bigger in person. He was actually rather handsome, or he would have been if he weren’t wearing a deranged expression of joy, mingled with anxiety and desperation. It wasn’t a mix conducive to showing one’s best side. He had wavy black hair,

Edd was standing outside the gym feeling panic rise in his chest. Where was Marie? She always waited outside the locker rooms for him, and she was nowhere to be found. Desperate, Edd grabbed a freshman girl as she walked by. She looked startled, and he apologized. “I’m sorry, but I can’t find my friend Marie. Would you check the girl’s restroom for her? She has blue hair.” The girl looked suspicious as she entered the girl’s room to check. “Thank you.” Edd said as the door swung closed.
“Edd!” Edd turned at the sound of his name. Nat was sprinting toward him looking panicked as well. “Have you seen Kev? He left with some guy that had your tags.”
Edd’s stomach dropped. “Had my…” Edd was interrupted by a scream from the women’s restroom. He sprinted through the door with Nat in tow. Edd skidded to a halt at the last stall to see Marie huddled in the corner by the toilet.

The next day was hell for both of them. Kevin and Edd were brought to school by Mr. Barr, only after Edd had insisted and promised he would willingly fill out a report after swim practice. Mr. Barr had taken Kevin’s phone with the intention of heading to the station that morning. Kevin and Edd were pulled out of class around noon to talk with detectives and officers.
Kevin noticed he wasn’t being openly followed anymore. In fact no one saw Chris at all after police spoke briefly with him in the morning. However this information did nothing to comfort Kevin. He knew now that his attackers had been watching him, and also watching Edd, afraid Edd would tell him the truth about that night. It was much more terrifying not knowing where the bastards were watching from now.
Kevin and Edd were spoken to separately and together. Kevin felt rather useless. He couldn’t remember the incident, really, so his word was useless. Edd was interviewed last and his took much longer
