You look at the large clock on the wall. It reads 9:00, which is... definitely not right. The clock has probably been broken for a while.

You check the small, red cabinet next to the cafeteria door. It looks like there was an arrow above it, pointing down to draw attention in case of a fire, but the arrow has since become worn and tattered. It looks a bit like a strange smear.

The red container mounted to the wall opens easily enough, revealing a fire extinguisher.

You hear one of the classroom doors creak from down the hall.

"I didn't see anybody in those classrooms," Fuse whispers. "...I didn't... get a great look, though, either."

Take the fire extinguisher and prepare to use it as a defense mechanism
Like blinding the person in the classroom (if there is one)

Ohh it was an arrow XD okay.

Well, if Fuse wants to light anything on fire, at least we have a fire extinguisher nearby to minimise the damage? XD;

Is the classroom door opening? >_> We should try to get out of sight but I'm guessing maybe there aren't too many hiding places around here. Slip into another classroom or the cafeteria? Or sneak towards the door? Gosh darnit. Why is everything so creepyyyy

Cause you know how children are:

"Cooome plaaay with uusssssss Ruufiaaaangeeeel!"♫

Then the toybox starts playing music, and the lunch pails start sliding around.

Ya know. Typical school stuff.

I agree on taking out the fire extinguisher to use as a defense mechanism... hopefully not to shoot foam though. We need Fuse to light the offender on fire if it's aggressive, so just use it as a lightsaber blunt melee weapon.

Oddly enough, it may actually not be a foam extinguisher. Your average commercial fire extinguishers are either CO2 based or water filled. Not only is that insanely cold, but in the case of CO2 it also removes oxygen temporarily. Cold might be a slight impediment to Fuse's powers, but as long as the thing's not chemical based it shouldn't smother any subsequent flame you want to put on things.

Being right outside a school cafeteria, it's probably a water+additive extinguisher, but Jane could just have a look at it.

we have two choices: either we duck into the caffeteria, or we prepare to confront who, or what, is coming out of the class room. if we’re lucky, it’s jury, but i doubt that. it’s probably a goon or something. perhaps we should duck into the caffeteria and wait to see what’s coming.

Check if the charge level is still valid on the extinguisher, maybe get some info on when this place closed down from when it was certified as checked last.
Check classrooms fully, loot any chalk, erasers, pencils and related as bleedable projectiles.

I guess try to get into the classroom that isn't being opened. The last thing we want to do is get ourselves pincered between the bleeding thing in the cafeteria AND whatever is coming out of the classroom (granted there might be ANOTHER thing in the other classroom, but I'm hoping if they're enemies they're small-fries).

EDIT: Actually, nevermind ducking into the classroom. We've got the door out RIGHT THERE and plenty of hallway to run away with. Just be ready to pull out guns and let's confront whatever comes out. If it's a monster we kill it; if it's a goon we can try interrogating and shoot if necessary; and IF it's actually someone friendly we can say we're investigating a kidnapping and ask questions.

The eyeball from earlier has me worried that we're going to run into more Bio Printer monster stuff. Something Carpenter based. We need to get ready for a potential repeat of the hospital incident where we killed Prophet. Everyone has pistols, right? We should get those ready.

........blood the eyeball. Turn it into the most disturbing drone ever.

I suspect somebody already has.

Nothing screams perfectly normal like an elementary school plastic plant eyeball!

Is it possible that someone has optical camouflage? The fire extinguisher can help with that. Be ready to fire it at Invisibo!
