Fifteen bombs are dotted around the school, but Dee’s only sure of the exact location of the one he’s currently sharing a room with. There’s no time to track down the other fourteen, and even if there were, it wouldn’t do any good. He’s got a bullet hole in his leg, so he’s not going anywhere.
Three minutes and counting; he can hear the time ticking away.
Tick Tick Tick
Precious seconds elapse as he removes the casing. Pick a wire and cut it. There’s a fifty-fifty chance of getting it right.
Saying a silent prayer, Dee makes his choice.
