Part 1: Targets of OpportunityEdit
Adalie Vitesse discusses what she's taking to Whateley in a few days with her father. Her father is very concerned with the shipment, as well as Adalie's younger sister, Amalie, who will be going as well.
In the morning, Adalie Vitesse meets with her faculty advisor, Madame Prudhomme, and changes a course and adds another one. Her advisor checks to see if it's a joke, but Adalie assures her that it isn't. Her advisor makes the changes. Almost immediately there's a call from Administration about the changes; Adalie is to get to Administration immediately.
Just before the action starts, a freshman girl who Booker doesn't recognize places a small bet.
In the event, all three girls pass. Gunny tells them that they need to take the ROTC marksmanship course (one hour before dinner on Sunday), mostly to give the Grunt's some motivation to improve. Headmistress Carson approves Adalie Vitesse's course requests.
