OOC; Last post before I depart.
IC: The unfamiliar student walked up to Lauren, smiling faintly. He carries a large black bag, and is wearing normal, uniform-style tan clothes. His smile is wrong.
"Excuse me, but I think we've met."
He reaches into his pants pocket and draws out a large hunting knife. At the same time, he withdraws a familiar white object from the bag and puts it over his face.
The red-tear mask smiles at her as he lifts the knife.
"I like you. A whole lot in fact."
"That's why I'll be gentle."
In a sudden motion, the masked thing moves, losing all human characteristics as it does. Its movement is like a puppet, arms twisting like they are on strings as they leverage the knife between them and Lauren.
"No noises now please. I want us both to enjoy the moment."
It flicks the knife suddenly, stabbing at her heart directly.
The thing makes no noise, and its face is hidden behind the mask.
But behind the mask...
...it is smiling.
