It was already lunchtime at the Sycamore University, and everybody around campus was socializing and going to their favorite places to unwind for a couple of hours before hitting the classes. It wasn't a sense of naivety among the students and faculty. Everyone knew what happened to the two security guards that were torn to shreds by an apparent monster being rumored around the University. Most people wanted to get back to a particular kind of normalcy again, even if it meant being oblivious to what happened six months ago.

Baseball and basketball tryouts were being held today, to everyone's surprise. Many others decided to play frisbee and throw footballs at the quad. Some even try to do a little bit of skateboarding around campus as well.

However, the vast majority of the students and faculty alike were too busy getting a quick bite before they go back to work or get into their studies. Just recently, food trucks around campuses had been trendy over the years. Most people live off of food trucks since it is their "lifeblood." The contemporary and over-the-top combinations of favorite food flavors usually run rampant in food trucks since every one of them has a unique gimmick.

One of the favorite places around the eastern campus was a Chinese-Mexican food-themed truck parked near one of the dancing halls. Despite the fusion of flavors, it became widely popular and was featured in many culinary magazines.

The food truck's signature meal was the sweet and sour chicken burrito. Usually, there was a line of 50 people waiting for such a delicious lunch, but many people have been scarce ever since the murders. Sadly, no one or not everyone is so eager to move about and around even in the middle of the day.

For those who are bold enough, could get a quick, delicious bite to eat and savor the weird and wacky combination of flavors.

Including one individual who pulled up near the food truck in a car. But not just any car, a purple Lamborghini Aventador. The Lamborghini Aventador LP 700–4 uses experimental 1300 PS 6.5 liter 60° V12 engine weighing 265 kg. Its transmission, a single-clutch seven-speed semi-automatic, is built by Graziano Trasmissioni. Despite being single-clutch, gear-shifts are accomplished in 50 milliseconds. The new, electronically controlled, all-wheel-drive system is developed and supplied by the Swedish company Haldex Traction, offering traction and handling capabilities based on their 4th generation technology.

Undoubtedly, this car turned a lot of the patrons' heads. They want to see this driver out of curiosity. He might've been some university trustee or a banking executive. Most if not all assumptions and guesses were incorrect, as an attractive female teenager with short black hair emerged from the driver's seat of the car.

Wearing a white and blue schoolgirl-themed outfit with a gray jacket and white sneakers with yellow striped socks; This pale skinned, bluish green-eyed beauty had perfect measurements. Cherie's slim body resembled of a banana shape with her small firm breasts and flat tummy in which she proudly showed off.

Swaying her hips with confidence as she walked to the food truck, she can feel many pairs of eyes taken notice of every step that she made. In a way, she positively reveled in it. Even the cook, minding the truck try to regain some of his composure.

"H-hello, how may I help you today?" The cook stammered.

The woman smiled shyly as she blushed a little, "I heard you sell Chinese and Mexican food. You guys sell those burritos, right?"

"Y-yes, yes we do!" The cook eagerly answered.

"Okay, give me four burritos," the teenager ordered. "One without arugula and tomatoes, one with extra teriyaki beef, one without beef and with extra vegetables and one with extra cheese and guacamole."
