Callum is just sitting at a table thinking about the principal's daughter Rani.
"She seems like a normal girl but I thought she'd be principal's pet." thinks Callum to himself.
"I really like her." adds Callum before his thoughts were interrupted by Corey.
"Hey mate." said Corey. "How are you?"
"I'm good how about yourself?" said Callum.
"Pretty well except Sophie broke up with me." said Corey disappointingly.
"Why did it happen?" said Callum.
"She used me." said Corey angrily.
"Why?" said Callum confused.
"So her cousin could sign up with Red Cotton." said Corey bitterly.
"Woah what a bitch." said Callum.
"Never mind mate there's more chicks out there."
As Rani walks through the cafe door, Callum calls out "over here."
"Hey Callum what are you up to?" said Rani.
"Not much just hanging out with my mate Corey."
"Corey this is Rani she's just started at Erinsborough High."
"Hi Corey nice to meet you." said Rani.
"Guess what her Mum does?" said Callum teasingly.
"Oh Callum get over it." laughs Rani.
"What's the joke?" smiles Corey.
"Her Mum's the new principal at Erinsborough High." said Callum.
"Sorry Rani that must be akward." said Corey sympathetically.
"Ah it's not too bad sometimes you can work it to your advantage." said Rani.
"Yeah why not exploit the benefits, there's got to be some advantages to having a parent being at school all day." laughs Corey.
"See you guys around I better be going, Mum's waiting." winks Rani.
"Wow she's nice." says Corey.
"Yeah really cool." sighs Callum.
"Actually Corey, got something to do, talk to you later." says Callum as he rushes out the door.
Catching Rani in the car park, Callum touches her shoulder.
"What's up Callum, make it quick my Mum will be here any minute."
"I was wondering if you wanted to go out with me some time." stutters Callum.
"Mmm." hums Rani. "Sure why not ah look Mum's coming we'll work out the details later."
"Woo-hoo." sings Callum in his head as he watches her getting driven away.
Dymocks (Level One)
Startled, Corey drops the book he was looking at.
"Hi Corey what'cha reading?" smiles Rani.
"You'll probably think this is boring guys stuff but I like dragon danger books and games." said Corey.
"Oh no, me too what level are you on?" said Rani.
"I'm up to eleven." said Corey.
"Perhaps we can get together some time for a challenge." said Rani.
"Well actually I was wondering if you'd like to come and see a band with me." said Corey.
"Sure what's the band's name?" said Rani.
"It's my brother's band, It's called Red Cotton." said Corey.
"Sounds great it's a date." laughs Rani.
Sophie notices that Callum's all over Rani every time she tries to catch Callum for a chat he's engrossed in conversation with her.
Sophie looks on with jealousy.
Hearing their names mentioned Sophie tunes in to the conversation behind her.
"Looks like Callum's found new love." laughs Ryan.
"Actually didn't Corey tell us he was taking her out on Saturday night is this girl a player or what?" says Graham.
"Corey sure lost interest in Sophie quick enough." snides Ryan.
"Actually wasn't it the other way around that she used him because of her cousin." said Graham.
Sophie knows they're right about her using Corey, she walks away embarassed.
Two Days Later
Callum bumps into Sophie at Harold's Cafe.
"What's the matter with you grumpy bum?" said Callum.
"Nothing." snaps Sophie.
"You're still not carrying on about Corey." said Callum.
"No I just don't see what he sees in miss principal's daughter." snaps Sophie.
"Hey c'mon she's ok you should get to know her. Actually why dont you come with us tomorrow to bowling, get to know her. You're going to see her a lot now we're hanging out." said Callum.
"Well where's miss wonderful tonight?" snaps Sophie.
"At some family thing." said Callum adding "why don't you come with me to see Red Cotton at Charlie's."
"We won't get in the door we're too young." snaps Sophie.
"Think outside the square miss snappy, back door, family friends." laughs Callum.
"All right you better know what your doing." snaps Sophie.
"Trust me its all under control." laughs Callum.
Thirty Minutes Later
While everyone is dancing away to the music Rani is telling Corey "I'm sure having a great time tonight, are you?"
"Me too, what do you think of my brother's band?" said Corey.
"It's a very great band to dance to." said Rani noticing something odd out of the corner of her eye.
"What're you looking at?" said Corey.
"Look over there isn't that Sophie and Callum?" said Rani.
Corey looks over to see Sophie and Callum near the bar.
"Sure looks that way." said Corey innocently.
"This place is sure packed." said Rani.
"Let's move over here". Away from Callum." thinks Rani to herself.
Noticing Rani and Corey walking away to the other side of the crowd Sophie tells Callum "Isn't that Corey with Rani?"
"They're probably just hanging out." said Callum annoyed.
"Wasn't she meant to be at a family do!" says Sophie confused.
"Sure whatever you say." says Callum angrily. "Let's dance."
"Fine, we're here to have fun." snaps Sophie.
"Hey Corey lets get out of here." says Rani nervously.
"Why, thought you liked it." says Corey.
"Yeah, but I've got a headache, c'mon let's go." says Rani dragging Corey out the door.
On the way home Sophie approaches the subject again of Rani's apperance with Corey at Charlie's.
"I think we need to talk about Rani, don't you Callum." says Sophie gently.
"Look." snaps Callum. "It's okay, he had free tickets she likes the music, she'd be a mug to not go."
"Okay, okay don't get the shits with me, what about tomorrow, we still going bowling." said Sophie backing off towards her house.
"Whatever, please yourself." said Callum angrily walking into his front yard.
Sitting on the brick letter box outside her house Sophie waits to see if Rani and Callum will turn up for bowling.
"Hey Sophie." calls out Rani coming towards her.
"Hey yourself." smirks Sophie adding. "Enjoy the dance last night."
"What are you talking about Soph." smiles Rani innocently.
"C'mon we saw you dancing with Corey and where did you disappear to miss guilty." laughs Sophie.
"Don't judge me Sophie, you were using Corey to help your cousin get a deal with his brothers band, eh miss not so innocent." sneers Rani sarcastically.
"Watch it lady, it wasn't like that." spits Sophie angrily.
"Really." says Rani faking surprise.
Jumping off the letter box Sophie faces off with Rani.
"Got a problem girls." says Callum loudly walking up behind.
"Stay out of it." yells the girls together.
"Snap out of it, it's bowling time." said Callum.
"If you think you're tough enough Soph bring it on." said Rani.
Using all her strength Sophie shoves Rani onto the nature strip.
"You bitch." screams Rani grabbing her leg and pulling her down onto the grass.
Trying to loosen Rani's grip on her leg Sophie kicks her full force in the face knocking Rani's front tooth out.
Blood pours down her chin.
Screaming loudly Rani punches Sophie with a closed fist straight in the nose making a cracking noise on impact.
Screaming even louder Sophie yells "You broke my nose you bloody bitch."
"You broke my teeth you slag." cries Rani.
"Jesus, stop you idiots, I'll go and get Karl, man there's blood everywhere." yelps Callum.
Hearing the racket Karl and Susan come running from their house.
"What's going on here and why is there so much blood?" said Karl.
"It's her fault she smashed my nose." cries Sophie.
"Look what she did to my teeth." cries Rani horrified. "My mother's going to sue you big time."
"No time for drama we need to get you both to the hospital." said Susan.
