The Cheerleader

The girl walks into the restaurant, a carving knife in her hand.

She is the head of the cheerleading team.  She receives the highest grades in her class.  She is the lead in the school play.  All of her friends defer to her.

She is a leader, and others are followers.

The girl raises the knife to her throat and makes a slashing motion without breaking her skin.  The patrons in the restaurant, unaware of what they are doing, pick up their own knives and cut open their own throats.  As they bleed to death, she smiles.

A leader indeed.
