You decide to take a short-cut through the school courtyard rather than attempt to squeeze under Thad's bulging quads. The healing melodies of "How to Save a Life" playing over-and-over in your head, you promptly turn around and sprint outside.

The zesty, autumn air feels nice on your lungs! But you shouldn't relax just yet.

"I'm gonna get you, you pint-sized bantamweight!" a quickly advancing Thad calls out from behind you. "You're lunch, kid!"

You have to do something, and quick!

Hide behind a tree.

Hide in a bush.
