“AAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHHH.”

The group of friends all shouts frantically due to their sudden descent. However, despite screaming, Toyu is still trying to figure out how the group could get out of this predicament. For them to get out of this without any injury is but wishful thinking, so he starts to imagine what would happen.
