A typical moment in some school horror game

“Today, someone in this room will die.”

The group didn’t breathe. The fortune teller’s expression did not change, blind eyes aimed over the candle into the rest of the darkened room.

“Whoops.”

Ari jerked her head. Kyle scraped the sole of his sneaker on the floor. “What?”

“Stepped on a spider. Does that count?”

The palpable dread dissipated.
