Summer holiday is about to end, and Annie is visiting Coyote one last time before school starts. The previously seen horned rabbit shows up to undergo the ritual to become human. Coyote explains a bit about life and mind before he drags the Rabbit's out off it as a totem, then gives it to Annie. Annie then leaves to bring it to the court. On her way she meets Andrew Smith whom has also spent the summer at the court. Annie tells him about the totem and they then go to the institution where bodies are made for the forest creatures.
Here they meet an individual that explains the court's role in this body switching. The two of them then leave and after a bit split up. Annie walk to her new room for this year, where she sees Katerina Donlan. They start talking, but Annie quickly finds that Paz is also there. Annie then figures the two of them might need some privacy and leaves them alone so she can check on Reynardine.
- The Year 10 dorms are in apartment buildings. These apartment buildings are based on the iconic building featured in the 1994-2004 series Friends.
- In the female dormitories, students are housed in the apartment that corresponds to that rented by Monica Geller and Rachel Greene (up to season 6) and Chandler Bing (from season 6 to the end of the series), while in the male dormitories, they are housed in the apartment corresponding to that rented by Joey Tribbiani and Chandler Bing (up to season 6). The apartment that is not occupied by the students is inhabited by robots based on the characters that would have lived there in Friends: Clangler Bing (Chandler Bing) and Joey Tribbianoid (Joey Tribbiani) for the female dorms and Mono-can [Geller?] (Monica Geller) and Rachel Greene (Rachel Greene) for the male dorms.
