Herbert tensed when David and Laura entered, stepping slightly away from the door as they entered.

He wasn't in the mood to talk, his posture and gaze appearing jumpy and nervous.

David walked in, slowly. Very slowly. He knew what he was going to see. The other four students, and then...he spotted the two bears and froze up. He ignored everyone else and made a beeline for the two.

He grinned after a second, a childish one, and knelt down next to the two. He picked them both up and hugged them tight.

"Duobros! Remember when you told me I was missing something, all that time ago? And I laughed it off, saying that I wasn't missing anything, I was about to be the most famous man in the world." He took a breath. "I know what I was missing. I got it, now, I think. Don't I?" He smiled.

Adda started to move back and forth on her feet.

"So we're all here?  We can leave this place without anyone else dying?"

Laura scanned the room, and her eyes fell on the pair of black and white bears calling themselves Duobear. "Now that is the lamest thing I've seen in my entire life," she said, chuckling slightly. 

"Now wait, someone here is gonna have to fill me in on the situation." She spoke up again after thinking for a moment. "In writing!"

They made a lot of bizarre sounding electrical noises when picked up, but most sounded out in something that resembled happiness and excitement. They were high pitched, at the very least.

"You got it. You got it in spades, kiddo." Black said, grinning at him.

They detached themselves from the 'Chauffeur'. He didn't look like one much, without  his hat or even a tie. He looked like a scrappy kid who had lost a lot. They looked up at him. "You wanna explain the situation?"

Eloise volunteered for Laura, taking her ID out. "That'll be a lot to type out," She sighed, clicking on Laura's name to use the text system.

She decided to write it in small easy-to-digest chunks. Mostly because she was piecing it all together as she wrote,
David planned all this, along with this shady group called "them". based it all off some japanese show where they killed kids. That over there is duobear. He's ok.


Eloise flashed the screen to Laura. Hearing Duobear say something along the lines of David explaining everything, she perked up. She'd have to type all that out too.

Richmond stood up after a rather heartfelt reunion. He looked over at Eloise and sighed. "After they catch Laura up. I'm still not sure of how to introduce the concept." He reached for his hat, but found hair, which was startling before he realized he had thrown it somewhere in the main office. Shame, that was one of his favorite props.

Laura clicked her tongue, annoyed that she didn't have her own Electronic Student ID to read the message on. "Give it here," she said, grabbing Eloise's ID when she finished writing.

"Hm. Kinda perfunctory there, Elly," she muttered. "Whatever, it'll do. I'll figure the rest out as we go along."

At that, Laura resigned herself to simply sitting and waiting for something to happen. She had a feeling an explanation was coming on, but she probably wouldn't be able to hear it anyway.

He looked at everyone staring at him, then sighed. He leaned against the door out - the door to freedom. He swore he could hear some kind of noise from the outside - was it raining?

He took out his ID, speaking as he typed. "Duobear is supposed to be able to let four out, and only four. The fact that he can let anyone out is technically a glitch, but it looked good for TV, so we used it. Five is...possible, it always was, really, but now it's much, MUCH less risky since I asked Monobear nicely."

He shrugged, trying to seem nonchalant. "I gotta stay behind. That was me and Monobear's deal. I stay behind, he lets you five leave without problems."

He moved out of the way of the door and looked at them all individually, not knowing what to say. What could he?

"Goodbye, good luck, and I'll miss you."

He handed the ID to Laura, letting her read what he had written.

Adda stared, dumbfounded.

"I don't care if you started this- well, okay.  I do a bit. But that doesn't change the fact that you were in just as much danger as us!"  She wasn't quite sure what expression to make.

"Why would you give yourself to Monobear for us...?"

He looked at Adda and laughed a bit. "Think of it less as me giving myself up for you guys, but giving myself one last chance to beat the poo poo out of him. That's easier to process, and closer to my actual reasoning."

Herbert finally made a move from the back of the room. He stepped forward. Well, he was going to die. Didn't expect to die when he was only 18. He was actually hoping to die as an old man with grandkids. Well, now was not the time to suppress himself. He walked over to David, grabbing him with one hand and pulling him into a hug, and with the other pressing a knife to his chest.

And then, much to Herbert's own deliberation, he kissed him.

Without any ceremony (or time for him to think about what he just did), he turned and walked towards the exit. "We escape. That's what."

Laura snatched the ID from David with renewed animosity, but as she began to read the message, she couldn't help but doubt her convictions. Was David really the evil man responsible for the death of her loved ones that she thought he was? 

There wasn't time to think about it, if David was telling the truth. Laura felt conflicted, but she turned her head and didn't say anything. She didn't know how to act in this situation. 

She looked up at David. He was laughing. Laura decided that maybe she had misjudged him, and he was much braver than she actually thought. But that just meant that he wasn't the one she should be angry at, and she couldn't let him stay behind. 

"Hey, don't bother talking back, but I don't wanna leave you behind! That stupid ass bear shouldn't be able to get his hands on anyone else." When she saw Herbert kiss David, she stuttered a bit. "Er... That's loving gross, but I stand by what I said!"

She listened to David's speech and nodded afterwards. She almost wanted to give him a hug to say thank you, but her emotions still were very, very conflicted about this kid.

She nodded. "Thank you regardless. Good luck to you too, David."

She looked at Adda then Duobear.. "...so, the five of us. Can we go, then? Is that possible now?"

She looked at Herbert oddly, then startled, then shrugged. It seemed everyone acted differently on TV.

"Agreed with Herbert. How do we do that, Duobear?"

David was a bit dazed as he saw Herbert walk over. Being the kind of guy who literally lived on TV, he had a feeling he knew what was coming.

It happened. It was over. He took a very, very deep breath, then laughed. He felt kind of bad, considering he still wasn't sure about how he felt about the prospect, but considering there was a 99% chance this was there last time seeing each other, he looked at Herbert curiously, with a light grin on his face.

"I had a feeling I was supposed to hear that, before." he muttered quietly enough for only Herbert to hear. "Ya could'a just told me."

He crackled his knuckles. "A'ight, so to get out, all you gotta do is walk to the sidewalk. The bears can't do poo poo to you once you get there. SOME GUIDELINES TO FOLLOW: One. Don't run, they'll catch you. Two. Don't look nervous. They'll notice. Three. You're all friends. Act it."

He looked at them all. "Duobear's here because the other bears perceive him as a Monobear. Because that's what he is, really. So it looks like Monobear is escorting ya out to everyone that isn't a human. That'd look like they're bringing you to a different facility, normally. 'Course, that doesn't really matter at this point, but in the normal case, it wouldn't have set off any alarms - it still won't - and it would make one hell of a sweet escape. Now, it's just theatrics." He shrugged. "This is your last act in this nightmare. I'd love to come along, but that's not my job. I've got another last act planned. Get out there and act your part."

Laura couldn't hear any of what David was saying, but she realized it must be important. She tugged on Eloise's jacket next to her. "Elly, if he's insisting that we leave I'm trusting you to lead me the right way," she said quietly. "I'm just gonna do what you do."

Eloise took her ID back from Laura slowly and slipped it into her pocket. She didn't know why she was still holding onto something that latched her into the school.

Finally she looked David in the eye. She couldn't say anything to convince him otherwise or tell him she'd see him soon. She really didn't know what to tell him. She almost told him to "break a leg" but even that didn't feel right.

"Thanks, and...show them who's boss," She was disappointed she couldn't word it to her friend any better. So much for the great goodbye. She turned to face the door when she caught the kiss and raised a hand to her mouth. Of all the things that were just revealed in that room, she expected that the least.

"We...ready then?"
She listened to the gameplan and then realized she might have to type this all out again. "We just have to...act natural?"

Black and White looked at them all. "We need five yes's. Then we go."

"Also, a sidenote: We bring you to the sidewalk. You run as fast as you can from there, as far away as possible. We have to come back, because we can't leave the school property. W-we shut down if we do that." Black shuddered, and White looked down. They seemed to hold hands tighter. "It isn't f-fun."

The bears turned to Adda. "If you get caught? A lot of things could happen. None of them pretty."

Herbert blanched. He was bad at acting. He knew it, it was why he quickly fell apart.

He chuckled nervously. He didn't want to look back. He was just trying to block his racing thoughts and doubts. "Acting's not my strong suit." he mumbled, "Not when Jan's not around...."

A certain figure sat in a certain chair in a certain room, looking at a certain screen.
It was labeled "Monobear Control Mainframe."
It read:
Units 1-3: DESTROYED.
Unit 4: HUMAN CONTROL. CURRENTLY OUTSIDE SCHOOL.
Units 5-50: AI CONTROL. CURRENTLY OUTSIDE SCHOOL. ARMED.

Herbert sighed, playing with a knife between his fingers. If things went wrong he'd probably explode before he bled to death...

"Well, time for the suicide march, maybe." he muttered, nodding his head.
