It's Khloe's first day at her new school, Sunnydale High. She had not slept well the night before, her nightmare problem was heading to disturbing territories. But she's not going to let her lack of sleep and crankiness knock her off her game.

New town, new school, new life. Hopefully, the forces of darkness won't mess this up for her too.

First order of business... navigate this maze of a school and find the Principal's office.

Well, there's this smiling girl in a wheelchair. "Hey, you need a hand?"

Permalink

She smiles back and readjusts her bookbag.

"I need many hands, but yours will do very well."

Permalink

"Well, welcome to Sunnydale High, I'll show you to the office?"

Permalink

"That's the destination of this morning. Please. I'm Khloe."

Permalink

"Call me Nics, everyone else-"

Permalink

"Hey, new girl," another girl says, sauntering up with a flick of her perfectly permed hair. "I'm Tamara Chase, self-appointed welcoming committee, and Captain of the Cheer Squad."

Permalink

"Khloe Sommers. I have many other titles, but we can just stick with Khloe for now."

Permalink

"A pleasure to meet you. Now, you look like a cheerleader right? We've got try-outs coming up, and you absolutely have to."

Pauses. "Rosenburg, shoo."

Permalink

Nics rolls her eyes. "Pleasure as always, Chase. See you round, Khloe."

And wheels herself off.

Permalink

Khloe waves and raises an eyebrow at Tamara, unimpressed.

"Do we shoo people now?"

Permalink

"We shoo the resident nerds who aren't good for social standing, yes. You start hanging around with Rosenburg, Mason and McNally and your street cred takes a complete nosedive."

Permalink

"If you say so. Looks like you have the social high ground here."

Permalink

"Of course," she says breezily. "It's all about style. Now, whistle-stop tour, and promise you'll try out for the squad, right?"

Permalink

"Chance to show off my skills. Sure, why not."

Permalink

"We are sorely in need of new talent."

So, whistestop tour it is, with Tamara occasionally pausing to introduce Khloe to the 'must knows'. Classrooms are down there, gym's that way, playing fields are beyond the gym, library's down that corridor there, and here is the office.

Permalink

She notes all the areas and is very pleasant and does not snark at anyone. Look how good she's being!

"Must be my stop then. Any words of wisdom?"

Permalink

"Watch who you talk to, street cred is everything around here. See you at try-outs."

Permalink

"Witness me watching. I'll see you there."

Permalink

Tamara smiles, gives a breezy wave, and heads on her own way.

Well, that was an experience.

And for another: the Principal.

Permalink

"You must be the transfer, Khloe Sommers wasn't it? I'm Principal Melaike."

She offers a hand.

Permalink

"Interesting name," she shakes her hand. "Ever think about becoming a rockstar?"

Permalink

That gets a smile. "I was never much good at singing, the best I manage is whistling. Now, Ms Sommers, I understand that you burned the gym of your old school down. As much as we really could do with a new gym here, I'd really rather not have to deal with paperwork it being burnt down would generate. If you don't mind."

Permalink

"Can't make any promises. Some gyms just really need a good lick of fire. I'll get back to you on that."
