To My Fellow Assassins

Mena Walker, Staff Writer

“During the second round of assassins, Viki and Harrison were teaming up. Harrison was my target, and Viki was my assassin — Harrison duped me. I went to his work and then she started chasing me around World Market and also the parking lot.”

– Shelby Lehman, 12

 

“[My highlight moment was] getting sold out by Ellie Nuss. I was working out with her boyfriend and then she sold me.”

– Bryan Zhang, 12

 

“My best assassin moment was getting out Michael Allen because everybody thought he was going to do so well and was favored to win. Also, I got the gold gun — that’s another highlight. I saw the photo on Instagram, and I sent the photo to my mom — she knew where it was, so she sent me the Google Maps coordinates, and that’s how I got the gold gun.” 

 – Allison Roggy, 12

 

“My best assassin highlight moment is hiding and waiting for Charlie DeZube in his recycle bin. The worst part was when his dad was coming home while I was still in the recycling bin. So, I had to get out and talk to his dad. But later at night, I still got Charlie, so it’s all worth it.” 

– Nolan Rodriguez, 12

 

“I was leaving my dance studio one evening and there was somebody outside waiting in front of my car. [I didn’t] leave for about two hours, so I’m just standing there while he’s sitting out in the cold waiting for me just to feel bad. I eventually felt bad, letting him shoot me.”

– Sarah Gravitt, 12

 

“​Hearing all the crazy things people do to take time out of their day to get their person. I think it’s interesting. People do smart techniques for the most part.”
