Banana: Oops! Sorry Lace! Didn't mean to send that screenshot to everyone! But we should all talk through group text so we're not overheard by that gender-neutral voice from the loudspeaker!! I think it's Mr. Kevin! He must be the hacker! I left Mr. Kevin out of this text!

Crush: Great idea.

Mr. Kevin: omg. I've never been on a group text before! Am I doing it right? lolololol

Mr. Kevin: Wait??? You think I'm the hacker?!?! lol

Banana: Dangit I can't help but be inclusive even when I don't want to be. Starting a new group text. Sorry Mr. K

Mr. Kevin: omg sad face.

Banana: Ok, team. Let's split up and look for clues to confirm Mr. K's the hacker.

Lace: We should form pairs. Like, for example, um I don't know, Marmie and Harry!

Marmie: Hard pass. Which, coincidentally, also describes my experience in the loo the morning after I've ingested too much cheese. But going with Harry would be an even worse situation.

Lace: No really, I need you to keep an eye on him.

Harry: Yeah, and Lace should go with Crush, obvs.

Banana: So that leaves me with the duck-billed scientist.

Crush: Woah, why'd it get so dark? I can't see two feet in front of me! Are we trapped in this dungeon of perpetual night forever?! Hope is dead, there is only despair!

Jim: WAIT NOW IT'S SUPER BRIGHT, THIS IS THE BEST THING TO HAPPEN SINCE JELLY IN A SQUEEZE BOTTLE!!! ALSO RELISH IN A SQUEEZE BOTTLE! SQUEEZE BOTTLES RUUUULE!

Lace: I GUESS LIGHT LEVELS WILL FLUCTUATE TODAY AND ALTER OUR MOODS ACCORDINGLY! WHAT AN ENLIGHTENING EXPERIENCE - LITERALLY! LOL HOW AM I SO GOSH DARN FUNNY?!
