As the class sits in a torturous silence, waiting for the bell to ring, they looked at one another. They knew there was no escaping until the bell rung. Silence, that was all they could hear. Like a snake going after it's unsuspecting prey, that's what the silence was to the students.
A slithering beast that would attack at any moment. Their anticipation was growing as the clock ever so merciless ticked on by every second of the minute.
'Ding Dong' went the bell, breaking the unrelenting silence. The students' voices rose in excitement as they flooded out of the now open door. Unfortunately though, the same torture would follow suit the very next day.
