*Sue, holding a piece of paper and looking around, grimaces as she enters a classroom.*
Sue: Is this right..? Is this room 103?
*Sue frowns as Paulo, Daisy, Mike and Lucy stare.*
Sue: Oh, of course it is.
*David smiles widely as he sits at his desk.*
David: It’s plot-convenient!
*Mike approaches Sue.*
Mike: So what did you do all summer?
*Sue grins as stars form in her eyes.*
Sue: Oh, I’m glad you asked!
*Sue raises a finger.*
Sue: After we finished moving house, my dad needed help with this project at work, which I thought could be good work experience for later!
*Sue hunches over, starry-eyed, her fists raised to her face in excitement.*
Sue: But it ended up requiring me to travel to the headquarters, which is actually up in Canada! So my summer basically became my first extended internation--
*Sue is cut off mid-sentence when Paulo complains.*
Paulo: Nobody asked for your life story, dude.
*David sits at his desk, vacantly smiling as he listens to Paulo and Sue argue.*

Tess: Wow, ten minutes before class and already there’s a huge racket!
*David turns towards Tess, leaning across the desk.*
David: Hey, you’re hot! And well-developed!

Tess: Not in this high school, kid. Things are different here.
*Paulo grins maniacally.*
Paulo: You mean there’ll be LOADS of older chicks in here?
*Lucy scoffs at Paulo.*
Lucy: Oh, that got your interest.
*Paulo zooms towards Tess, looking flirtatious.*
Paulo: That reminds me.. Hi ♥
*Tess frowns as she leans away from him.*
*Paulo fondles Tess’ locket necklace.*

*Lucy punches Paulo from behind, shocking Tess.*
Lucy: Don’t mind him.
*Paulo turns towards Lucy and smirks.*
Paulo: Aww.. you jealous, babe? Don’t be! If I was gonna hit on ANYONE in this room, you’d be number one!
*Lucy punts Paulo into the ceiling.*
Lucy: Don’t mind if I hit on YOU, first!
*Tess looks up, impressed.*
Tess: Wow, right to the ceiling!
*Lucy scowls as she closes her eyes.*
Lucy: I usually aim for something harder.
