Upon finding the Aztec relic, spilling the blood contained inside, and believing they have caused the sun to disappear, the students face the moral dilemma of human sacrifice in the Aztec traditions. They decide upon taking a lottery to determine which of them will be sacrificed with the knife included in the relic. Amber draws the short stick, and is killed by all but Wesley. The sun returns and the world regains warmth. The group's radio news tells that passing through some kind of cosmic cloud shadowed the earth. The remaining four students are forever haunted by the murder they have committed. Written by Dorkinbrooke
