Whereas Cat and Billy seemed to enjoy their breakfast, Ben still didn't feel like eating. However, there was no harm in taking a cup of coffee, so he got himself one. When Billy reminded them that he in fact had never been in the detention room the day before, Ben decided to tell him, what exactly had happened: how they had found the corpse, how the lights suddenly had exploded, how all of it just had ... stopped somehow and how the next thing he could remember was waking up in his bed.
"I wonder", he added, "if actually this is the dream. Maybe we're all still in this detention room, have lost our conscience and are trapped in this vision of an empty school. I know it sounds crazy - but not any more crazy than the assumption everyone else suddenly vanished, what do you think?"
