The next day, Kara, Isabelle, and Morgan wonder why Jessie was not at school. They get an answer from Nikita Ferguson, one of Jessie's classmates in Science class. Nobody contacted the school, or Jessie would have had an excused absence.
So, Kara heads to Jessie's room in the Warriors of Time Aqua base, finding that there was nobody there. Kara exits when she hears a sound coming from Darkness.
