[Doriana] Leave Brittany alone!

Postby Doriana » Wed Jun 03, 2020 7:20 pm

My friend Brittany - you might know her from my recently-solved puzzle - stars again in this brand new puzzle! This is based on a true, somewhat disgusting story, so I apologize in advance to those of you with a sensitive stomach.

Tino (H/T/M) leaves the room. Minutes later, Brittany (H/A/F) shudders with disgust and regrets an earlier decision.

Is Tino Brittany's student? Is she a student at Brittany's school? Do they know each other? Are they related?

Did Brittany make the decision as part of her job? Did Tino's decision to leave the room cause her to regret the decision? Did the decision negatively affect Tino? Did she allow Tino to do something? Disallow Tino from doing something?

Were there other people in the room? Other students? Did they also leave when Tino left?

Was Tino supposed to leave? Is it relevant where he was going? Another classroom? Somewhere else in school? Home? Did Tino leave because of Brittany's decision?

********SPOILER********

One of Brittany's students has his phone out in class, so she confiscates it and puts it on her desk, face up. Tino goes to the bathroom, takes a picture of his poop and sends it to a group chat that the other student is in (because apparently that's what teenage boys do these days???). A preview including the disgusting picture pops up on the other student's phone, so Brittany regrets having taken away the phone / not having turned it around.
