Transcript: Sebray orders the punks to march.

Kalo stands in the doorway of the orientation room, stammering at what he just saw. He numbly sits on the floor.

Reggie peeks out the door from above him. "That's what you looked like when, um." Her sentence drifts off.

They both return to their seats inside the room.

Dr. Croft looks to Kalo. "Normally we'd give you a much gentler introduction to all of this..."

Transcript: Dr. Croft continues to say, "You didn't grow up knowing the Federal Attribute Committee like Regina, here."

The girl whispers to Kalo, "Class B means you weren't born with your power."

Kalo quirks an eyebrow. "Did you say p–"

A commotion in the hallway interrupts him.

Sebray dashes for the door, muttering, "Damn kids!"

Opening the door reveals the sign taped to the glass that says "Orientation."

Transcript: Kalo flips the fuck out, confused and afraid. "BUT HE- THE BRIDGE!" Everything in the room seems to tremble as he shouts.

Dr. Croft raises a hand. "Calm down, Kalob." His words are unusually persuasive.

"Wha, ah, wow," Kalo de-escalates.

"Very good," says Dr. Croft.

The calming affect puts a smile on Kalo's face, turned into a weird grimace by his confusion. "What the hell is happening."

Dr. Croft folds his arms on the desk. "The FAC has detained you-"

"What is the FAC?" Kalo asks.

Sebray chimes in. "He's class B, sir."

"Of course."

Transcript: Voices fade in. Faces form.

Dr. Croft sits at a desk in a small room, surrounded by shallow tranquility posters and flowers that just might be fake. He taps some papers on the desk. "Now then, Regina Verbeck? You understand that you're in FAC custody for vandalism and disregard for human life?"

The girl is slouched forward in her chair. "...Yes." She glances at the weird unblinking boy.

Dr. Croft says, "There is a lot of paperwork to fill out, ah... Sebray. Release Kalob, please. He's staring again."

Kalo blinks. "Hhuh? What the-" He realizes Sebray is looming over him and jumps back with a scream.

And that's it for chapter 2! Thanks for reading.

Transcript: Trembling, Kalo hugs himself, stepping further away from the edge. "Oh my god, I almost- what was I thinking?" His eyes squeeze shut as he cries.

"Kalo," Sebray says again, trying to bring him back to attention.

"How did you even know my name-" Kalo looks up in time to see Sebray lunging toward him.

His hand makes contact with Kalo's head, releasing a flare of pink light. Kalo's eyes are stricken wide. "Because you're under arrest."

End page. End of chapter 2.

Transcript: "You don't know anything about my problems!" Kalo cries.

"I do know," Sebray says. The halo around his head hisses, growing in intensity. Sebray holds a hand out, ordering, "Come down, Kalo."

Bathed in the pink light, Kalo silently steps off the barrier and back onto the road.

Transcript: The voice belongs to Sebray. His car is also parked nearby, and another person appears to be sitting in the back. "I wanna talk to you."

"Who ARE you?" Kalo asks.

"I'm Sebray. Now listen,"

Kalo scoots away as he approaches.

Sebray holds his hands up. "I know you're scared." Then a feint halo of pink seems to form around his head, "But this won't solve your problems. Let me give you the solution."

Transcript: Warning for suicide ideation.

Kalo pulls himself onto the concrete barrier. He holds onto one of the metal supports of the bridge.

Just as he steadies himself on the edge, a voice sharply calls out, "KALO."

He turns to the powerful call.

Transcript: Kalo drives under a traffic sign that says "Chicago Skyway, 1 mile."

He passes onto the Skyway Toll Bridge. Kalo stops the car on the bridge, turns it off, and steps toward the barrier. Terrified, he looks over the edge to the river far below.

Transcript: "I didn't know what to do," Jamie whimpers.

Kalo grabs him and hefts him up. "Did you do anything?"

"Urk- I ran."

Kalo hurls Jamie to the floor. "You left Becca to DIE!" He stands over Jamie, beginning to cry. He flinches at a teacher yelling from down the hall.

"Hey!" She shouts, "Get back here!"

Kalo abandons Jamie and runs down the hall.

Transcript: Jamie says, "Me and Becca was waitin' for you..."

Becca slid a few dollars across her bedroom floor next to the bag of cocaine.

"I-I thought we'd have some fun 'til you got back."

Kalo stares at him. "What..."

Jamie throws his hands up in defense. "She didn't even snort that much- uh-"

Kalo glowers over him.

Cowering lower, Jamie blurts, "She paid for the bag, Kal! I-it was hers!"

The surrounding kids in the hallway begin to notice and wonder if a fight's about to break out.
