This is hard to say exactly how one would react until and unless one faces a particular situation in reality. But personally I feel I would gather some courage as I must be very close to the school by then. After discovering the featureless face of the watchman I would give a strong punch to the watchman’s face to push him out from my way and start running at the top speed towards the school again shouting for others to come out, and then, go and inspect the place of the occurrence with others.

If I were in place of Mr Oliver from “A Face in the Dark”, I wouldn’t have even taken the forest path in the beginning!

First of all i will not choose the forest road. But if I am already in that situation then the best is not to talk to anyone in the lonely road who was crying or doing anything else.
