The teachers looked on in surprise, although I definitely wasn’t surprised because as always this narrative just took the most predictable turn. I mean, can you seriously expect any reader to just be like “oh, wow, she was really the woman in the room and now she’s all confused about who she was” and care at all?
I gave you blood and guts and a naked woman and he goes and turns it into something purely pedantic and utterly uninteresting.
Mr. Harrison opened his mouth to speak, but his words went unheard due to the overwhelming noise of a loud siren sounding through the early morning air. Everyone looked to the sky, as though they might see a tornado forming over their heads or some other such natural disaster.
Instead, they heard an otherworldly roar sound in the distance.
Principal Schepke said to no one in particular, “Well, I just can’t imagine that today could get much worse, could you?”
Mr. Harrison, however, knew what the siren and the roar in the distance meant. He had dedicated his entire life to the study of the ancient titans, as well as the secretive organizations which worshiped them. He had worked directly with all levels of the United States government to prepare them for what he now feared was happening at this precise moment. Those sirens meant one thing and one thing only. His greatest fears had finally come true.
It was at this point, Mr. Harrison excused himself from the rest of the faculty, with nothing but a light muttering of his sudden need to go to the restroom.
And go to the restroom he did. Because hidden behind the walls of the faculty-use-only restroom was a staircase leading down into the depths of the city, where a war room awaited his very presence.
He activated the secret door and walked in haste down the dimly lit stairs and arrived in the unknown chamber hidden below the school to find the other members of the Titan Defense Committee already in place.
The Secretary of Defense and the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff were in a heated argument with the President of the United States of America regarding what steps to take next.
But they all went silent at the arrival of Mr. Harrison. A man they knew simply as The Badger.
