Zoe was sitting behind her desk, looking rather busy as she tapped at her computer keyboard. Anyone who came up behind her would see that she was looking at a number of gun websites, but hopefully parents or family members who wanted to talk to her would use the door, and not the window.

"Umm, this is the principal's office," Kathy explained, continuing her parents' tour of the school. "And it--oh. It looks like she's in."

She hadn't meant to sound disappointed to see you, Zoe. It was just...her parents. Meeting authority figures. There were too many things that could go wrong with that.

"My parents are," Kathy clarified, not that she really thought that Zoe was confused. "Umm, I'm Kathy Li? Err, Katherine Li on my records?"

"Surely she knows who you are, darling. No one can forget as pretty a girl as you!" Kathy's family followed her into Zoe's office.

Kathy blushed and really wondered why the school didn't come with convenient trap doors.

Fortunately, Sarah was there to rescue her from her mother's overzealous...everything.

"I don't think she's ever met Kathy to know her," Sarah pointed out. "Don't principals only see kids who get in trouble?"

"And that's hardly our Kathy!" Mrs. Li declared.

"Quite, quite," Mr. Li said, officiously. "We are very interested in seeing everything that our tuition is paying for. Going to school in a castle is all well and good, but it won't matter much to the college acceptance board of UCLA. We want to make sure that Katherine's getting the education that we're paying for."

Oh look, Kathy's horrified face. It was getting quite the workout this weekend.

"Katherine's going to be a doctor," Mr. Li said firmly. There would be no hint of dithering like there had been in Ms. Adler's office.

Look, she got to choose the field of medicine she wanted to pursue! She had plenty of choices in her life!

"What else, in your opinion, should Katherine be doing to improve her likelihood of acceptance?" Mrs. Li asked. "We've sadly left the age behind when simply having remarkable grades could ensure acceptance to the best schools. Can you look up her class rank? We want to be sure she's on track to graduating valedictorian."

Kathy's wince was probably enough of a warning that Zoe wouldn't enjoy what came next.


Both of her parents were staring at Zoe now, her mom silently, her father sputtering.

"How are they supposed to know who's best if they're not ranked?! How can you just apply to be a valedictorian! There's supposed to be numbers--math--weighted GPAs! Not an essay!"
