14 year old Alex Leoni walks out of the window, when his mother tells him that there is such thing as a door. Alex says that doors are only for boring people and rides his bike to school. At the Melsher Institute, Nicole De Ponte is seen waiting for Alex. In her narration, she admits that she is in love with Alex while looking at a selfie of him and her on her phone. She smiles as Alex approaches. They high five and Alex gives Nicole a present.

When Nicole and Alex walk into the Melsher Institute, they are instantly greeted by, presumably, a teacher, who tells Alex to tie his shoe laces. They then walk into Nina, who points out that they are first years. They then see the rules of the school on a wall. Alex reads out a few which are: no music in school; no miniskirts and shorts; no food in the classroom and no running in the corridors. They both share a slightly scared look.

Christian Alessi is then seen walking outside. Linda Rossetti starts talking about him. Samantha tries to say something, but is shushed by Linda, who stares at him along with Rebecca and Samantha. Then, a group of boys playing soccer kick the ball off the grass. Christian, sees the ball and jumps in front of Linda to grab it. Linda starts talking about him once more, with Rebecca and Samantha replying with their usual "Obviously" and "Absolutely". A black car pulls up on a curb and Emma exits the car.
