The school bell reverberated through the corridors. Principal Kirk stared out of her office window and watched the parent volunteers taking up their positions by the front gate. Lunchtime was always the riskiest period for runaways, but her new security measures seemed to be doing the trick.

Mind you, the CCTV cameras and special electronic locks had put a mighty dent in the school’s already-squeezed budget. And there had been a number of complaints about the electrified fence.

But in Kirk’s mind, it was money well-spent because it had been over a month since one of the teachers had escaped.
