You drive into the high school parking lot, your wipers slashing at the heavy rain. It’s the first day of spring and students run from their cars and the school buses, into the dry halls of the high school.
You’re heading for the faculty lot when you see them.
At the far end of the student lot, the rear doors of a beat old white van are half open. The two students stand just inside them...
