"Some of the things you've said are a bit confusing, however I understand the gist of it." Morgan spoke up, crossing his arms as a thoughtful look crossed his face as he tilted his head in thought.Monika smiled. "Of course I am," she said. "That's why I was brought here."
"The one behind this simulation is Grimm," Greenleaf said, crossing her arms. "We don't know who he really is, or why he's doing this, but all the teachers involved are just like you: brainwashed and trapped in false identities. The only difference between you is that they have an additional firewall to break open."
Yang tilted his head in confusion. "And you...don't?"
"That's right. I was brought in from the start knowing about all of this. They wanted somebody there who knew what was going on so I could keep the AI in check. And in order to do that, they..." A shadow of fear fluttered across her face as she continued in a somber voice. "...they threatened my tree."
Perfuma gasped. "Your tree? Who would do such a thing?!"
"Wait, am I missing something? Draq scratched his head. "You did all this for a tree?"
"It's a very special tree!" Greenleaf snapped, but then sighed, composing herself. "It's a tree that's belonged to my family for generations. I am from a fairy tale back in my world, a witch. That tree is what I use for my magic. They threatened to destroy it if I didn't help, and it's somewhere in the simulation."
"By the way, this room is still in the same simulation," Monika added. "But I made sure only we had access to it. Just a small place away from whatever they may be making out there for us to deal with."

"If we get out of here, then we'll return to our normal bodies and wake up, but how will we get home?" He wondered, adding to Haru's question while adding his own.
