(They really waltzed in and were like: We found the sussy sus.)
Crystal, despite knowing none of that was her business, instantly shot up from her chair and took one of Ethan’s wrists.
"I'm sorry, sir, but Ethan isn't the type of person to do that kind of crap." Crystal said, a hint of anger in her voice.
Ethan remained calm. "Crystal, it's okay," he said.
Crystal glared at him, digging her nails into his wrist as if to tell him to hush.
"No, Ethan, it isn’t. You, me, and everybody in this stupid school knows you couldn't have done something so idiotic." Crystal snapped.
"Crystal," Ethan said sternly. "Calm down. Otherwise you'll get into trouble too. This will all clear up."
"Ethan, jail isn't clearing up. That's just so.. so unfair!" Crystal yelled.
"Crystal, there's still the trial and everything. It'll be okay. Now go sit down. "
Hot tears dabbed at the corner of Crystal's eyes. She glared at Ethan with the biggest death stare not many people could muster.
"No, this isn't fair! I don't want you getting embarrassed because you got arrested in the middle of school, Ethan. Plus, your family could be worried sick about you. That’s another thing I refuse to let happen. You all seem so close!"
Ethan couldn't help but chuckle. "I have a feeling embarrassment is going to be the least of my problems."
The police officers had had enough. "Ma'am, I'm need you to return to your class."
"Sir, I need you to return to the police station." Crystal snapped without hesitation, narrowing her eyes in annoyance.
"Ma'am, if you continue, you will be charged with interfering with the police and will too be arrested."
Crystal gritted her teeth in frustration as she shot a glare at the police officer. She reluctantly took a step back, crossed her arms, and slowly walked back to her seat, looking at Ethan the whole time.
Ethan was brought out of the school and was helped into the police car. They were soon driving off. "What changed since a few weeks ago?" Ethan asked.
"We were finally able to unscramble the video footage," the officer said. "It shows that it was you."
(Caught in 4K 👀)
The other officer stared at the road, his fingers tapping the wheel.
"You'll have to remain in prison until the court issues a trial," he said bluntly. "Sorry, kid."
Ethan was completely confused. He knew for a fact that he never killed Richie. And how there could possibly be video footage of him doing it was completely unfathomable.
"We'll let you have a look at the video during our interrogation," the first officer said.
Ethan let out a sigh. "Okay," he said.
(OOOOH WAIT, HE COULD BE BEING FRAMED :00)
(Imma try to unravel this mystery-)
To break the following silence, the other officer hummed a little tune. Soon, words began to form.
“Donuts and coffee, best for stakeouts. Catching the criminals, there's always a breakout.."
