SHANI, 16-year-old high school student, sits horrified, mind racing only a bit faster than her
heartbeat. She is in an abandoned classroom in the school, listening to her iPad. At only 5 feet
tall, her feet swing off of the ground in the tall stools. She twists her braids in her hand
nervously, feeling glad that she is wearing black. She feels less visible. It is like her worst
nightmare come true. She listens in disbelief, hoping against hope that she is mistaken about
what she heard. But she knows what it is. All over social media are words that she knows
well because they come from her very own recordings. She wants to die.
As she sits dazed, not wanting to listen, but not able to stop, 17-year-old TY comes bursting
into the room. Tall and thin, he is wearing his professional attire for dress to impress day. He
runs his hand across his waves and turns on SHANI.
