That's when she noticed somethign rolling from under the gate in the gate. It was several of the man's fingers.
Suddenly, Tejima started screaming. This madman had bitten into Tejima's arm and torn off the flesh, He fell to the ground and quickly died from the injuries despite their attempt at first-aid.

He suddenly reached up and bit into her neck. She was the second person in Fujimi High School to be killed and transformed into one of Them.
