A single crab

by Popcorn's blue | Score: 4500

Little kids ran around the class room. There was no teacher. 
However, one specific kid sat in her seat. She was hazily looking through her pencil pouch. 
Suddenly, the door of the class room creaked open. The principal.
She had dark brown hair, that slid down her shoulder, and she always wore pretty blue dresses. "Hello?" 
The girl with the plush unicorn talking to the other girls about her unicorn, screamed. Poor thing didn't expect the door to creak open like that. 
The principal however, smiled and walked to the front of the class. "Well, you'll be going home sooner today." 

As the kids start yelling with delight, a loud sound entered through the hallway. The principal, shocked, slowly walked out, stopping at every step.
Another loud sound of something breaking. No, collapsing. Outside, she could see a whole class crash down. Luckily, no children were in it. But a teacher was. The Principal ran up to the teacher, clearing away the dust and bricks.

"No, listen to me" The principal said, "Don't close your eyes, speak. Speak."

The teacher looked at the principal with her lovely brown eyes. "It's too warm." 

"I know. I know." The principal said, clearing more bricks. She said, "As a kid, I thought of aliens as real things. But now I know for real, that they are real." 

"And they don't seem to be very nice." said the teacher, before she closed her eyes and drifted into endless sleep. 

The principal shed a tear, and then stood up. "It was lovely having you as a teacher here." 

The Principal then guarded every child in the school to the school's exit. The parents came in, all worried, and slowly took their kids back home.
The Principal sat there, near the dead teacher. She'd seen her die, and done nothing to save her. 
Little did she know, she saved a lot of children.
