They leave the building and enter a grotty courtyard. The place does not seem particularly well-kept.
Three kids are hanging out on the roof of another building, two of them talking and one in the middle looking down at the courtyard with interest. The one on the far left has her hair pulled into two bright pink bunches, one in the front and one in the back; the one in the middle has a mousey brown undercut; and the one on the right has short, curly, dark brown hair. "I don't know," the girl with pink hair is saying. "It just sounds like noise to me. It's pointless."
"It's not pointless," the boy with curly hair argues. It's atmospheric. Listen to the whole album." "No, it's rubbish." "HEY!" the one in the middle shouts, waving.
All three of the kids are wearing grey t-shirts, but the one who shouted is wearing a green vest over theirs. "Victor! You're out already?" they call out, cupping their hands around their mouth. "Man, shut up!" hisses the girl, shooting daggers at the middle kid. The boy on the far right ducks down to try to hide.
Rachel glares up at them. "What the- how did you get up there?!"
"Jo lifted us!" the middle kid calls out happily. The girl with pink hair shakes him. "Sid, shut up!" she says.
A bright red background. Rachel is furious. "Get down here right now! You two are in so much trouble!"
"Three!" Sid says, raising the boy's arm up so Rachel can see. "Why," the boy demands. "Oh my god," mutters the girl, covering her face.
"You go to the hall," Rachel orders, pointing. "I have to deal with this. "I'm gone," Victor says, immediately holding his hands up and marching away.

Who are these chumps
Yesterday was Hourly Comic Day, where you draw a comic about what you're doing every hour for 24 hours. I had a lot of fun doing mine and you can check them all out here!
Don't forget, the comic's updating every single weekday for the next couple of weeks, so check back tomorrow!
EDIT: I forgot to mention, since it was in the original script for this page and I forgot I changed the lines, but Sid is agender and uses they/them pronouns! It'll be mentioned in the comic later on, but I just thought I'd let you all know!
