Kasa walked into homeroom chatting on her mobile phone. She didn't particularly like Mondays; today, for example, she had French and Maths, both of which she hated. She wasn't really thinking of anything in particular, which is why she was surprised and shocked when Mr Scott, the homeroom teacher, stepped in front of her.

"Please switch off your phone, Kasa," he said. "As from today, mobile phones are not allowed in school. You may keep your phone today, as long as it's off, but don't bring it tomorrow."

Kasa was annoyed. "That's a stupid rule. We all know that it's not going to affect our health or anything."

"Orders from above. Or, more accurately, from Mrs Warner, our Headmistress. Unless you wish to discuss it with her, I would suggest you do as I tell you."

Muttering under her breath, Kasa said a brief goodbye to her friend and switched her phone off. She walked to her seat without a word.

Rather unusually, Infri happened to be in school on time and for once, he was glad of it as he'd walked into homeroom just in time to catch the stuck up cow Kasa getting told off by Mr Scott. He secretly agreed with her tho; it was a stupid rule and one he had no intention of keeping. Infri had heard of the school shooting in that other school but he didn't see how it translated to the school introducing boring and pointless rules. He bet that the teachers were allowed to keep their mobile phones.

Infri walked to his place at the back of the room and slung his bag down. He was annoyed that he had to go into school; his father was unemployed and wouldn't allow him to hang around at home, and the town was full of those stupid truancy notices so he couldn't go there, either. School was just a waste of his time, which could be spent playing computer games and hanging out. He didn't bother to listen to the teacher telling off yet another student for having a mobile; it was just the same old stuff as he'd told Kasa and anyway, it wasn't as much fun watching a normal be told off.
