Guys, I just saw a green glow coming from over the hill. Pretty sure it's the new government building by the school. #conspiracytheories

So the Church of Caleb O'Haughten is definitely a cult. #completelyconvinvced #conspiracytheories #cult #churchofcalebohaughten

@andyhackerobins I cant believe cult leaders bother going to Advanced Algebra, can you? #yourerediculouskid

Later that day…

Seriously! Guy followed me off campus, into and out of 3 stores downtown, onto my street, what the heck? Getting a little bit terrified.

The next day…

Do you guys think Andy's gonna be at school today @nikolasthethird @badkarlma?

Nicholas Wadesphere
@nikolasthethird

No, I don't. We should have gone to his house last night when we couldn’t get in touch with him. Something bad happened.

Nicholas Wadesphere
@nikolasthethird

Why not @badkarlma and me talk to Romonov after school, @Brian_Muddle you try and track Andy's phone?

Brian Muddle
@Brian_Muddle

So, there's a small problem with the GPS information. It says Andy is in abandoned land. Only old buildings out there, no people.

Nicholas Wadesphere
@nikolasthethird

We have to go there.

Later that week...

@badkarlma

This old building is creepy af @Brian_Muddle @nikolasthethird I can't believe this place is even still here.

Nicholas Wadesphere
@nikolasthethird

I know, right? Is there an opening in the fence over there?

Brian Muddle
@Brian_Muddle

Only one person should go inside tonight.

Nicholas Wadesphere
@nikolasthethird

I'll go. I'm the closest to Andy.

Then...
Nicholas Wadesphere
@nikolasthethird

I don't think it will let me send anything from in here. The wifi sucks or something

Nicholas Wadesphere
@nikolasthethird

But I can see all the messages Andy must have sent to me while he was in here though!

Andy Robins
@andyhackerobins
