One boring school trip, three fifteen year old boys and some hallucinogenic wasp stings...

 Wow, very nice. I believed in the characters, loved the narrator's voice, loved the ending. Thanks for a great read.

I'm not keen on the change of POV at the beginning, but I like your description here. You repeat the action again at the end so it's redundant- I'd add to the later description instead. 

Nice details during the interrogation (noise of the classrooms down the hall, picking at the skin around fingernails).

Minor grammatical/punctuation stuff (mainly misuse of apostrophes).

I like that it's really left open as to what's real. I've not decided.

Great work overall!

Really enjoyed this.  The voice of the narrator really comes through and gives it that extra dimension that lets you get lost in the story, and I liked the "they're everywhere" feel, which gives a hopelessness to their plight - kind of like "Invasion of the Body Snatchers" reimagined through a David Icke bad dream.

And that was a cracking opening paragraph.

Oh my god! That was so terrifying! I enjoyed the clip especially the end. The narrator's voice, the plot, the theme everything was just perfect. They offer best dissertation help to understudies to submit their task on time. I would like to watch more about such kind of topic. Thanks for sharing.
