Kate never put much stock in the rumor that she was the first daughter born in over two hundred years to the Thomas family. First it wasn’t believable and second it wasn’t something she could have controlled if she wanted to. And she liked being the youngest daughter. Her three older brothers were a bit overprotective - perhaps controlling at times - but no one messed with her. Matt and Eric, the oldest and twins, were telekinetic and that was only a secondary skill to their natural talent to run off unwelcome outsiders. It was top-secret knowledge that only Brian, the last Thomas brother, and her were permitted to know.

But things have a way of changing and something as ridiculous as being the only daughter turned out to be the loose thread that unraveled a long hidden family secret.

“Yes sir.” She almost negated it saying she was Kate Thomas but remembered she was enrolled

as Jim’s daughter.

“And she’s polite.” The class giggled. “Nice job. And another perfect from Jeff of course.”

A very neat looking boy gave an unctuous smile a couple of desks down from Meg.

Mr. Stewart let them out after giving more homework than Kate ever had in one night from all her

classes put together. Jeff caught up to them to meet Kate.

“This is Kate.” Meg introduced with a hint of iciness.

“Looks like I have some worthy competition, finally.” He was friendly as he sized up his potential

intellectual equal.

“It’s the only thing I do well and I won’t be much competition for long.” Kate said shyly.

“Embrace it. We’ll keep the jocks on their toes.” He ran off in the other direction.

Her next class was English. Meg was in that class as well as Greg and his beefcake friend. “They

always bunch us up. Let me see your schedule.” Meg scanned Kate’s classes. “We’re in every class

together except you’re in Physics next and Philosophy after lunch.”

“Good.” Kate liked Meg.

“Yeah. I’ll stick with you until you get your feet wet.”

Kate already trusted she would and not just because she wanted to know more about Brian

although that cinched it.

The English classroom was on the top floor and looked like a huge bedroom with comfortable

chairs, no desks, in place of regular furniture. All the classes were either on the top floor and looked like

that one or on the bottom and looked like the math room with few exceptions. Mostly languages and

religion were in the top levels and the rest in the lower classes. Meg told her they all got tired of running

up and down stairs all day.

The middle floor had offices and some of the art classes were off past the kitchen, which wasn’t

used for anything other than cleaning up paint crusted brushes and other supplies. There was a science lab

for biology and chemistry up the hill in the converted garage house.

Kate liked the English teacher, a Miss Carter. She was very young, late twenties, but made up

what she lacked in experience with exuberance. There was an endearing librarian quality about her. She
