I am basically an outcast. None of the Scholarship girls talk to me, so none of the other girls talk to me either. Then one day when I went to class I met two other girls who changed my life.
One was Ananka Fishbein, the other was Kiki Strike.

After class I walked up to her and slipped a note into her black backpack. I know she felt it, but I honestly had no care for stealth at the moment. The next day I found my note in my locker with new tiny writing on the bottom.
"Who are you?" My note had said, "I am Kiki Strike. Now the new question is who are You Miss Nordberg."
