Learning Gen-X Style #6 - Tension Building: As the school gets back to normal at its new location, various things start to cause tensions to build. Crushes appear to be causing some tension. Certain discoveries are becoming issues as well. What tops it all is the arrival of an attacker from out of nowhere, someone who should not be there at all? This individual leads some to believe that not all is as it seems at the school, and that the one pulling the strings may be discovered.
Learning Gen-X Style #7 - Birthday Backlash: Things continue as if normal at the school, but the place has had a special event. Yvette has had her eighteenth birthday.
