She sat in the hall, tapping her fingers nervously. It was all she could do not to jump up and pace as she waited for her interview. Reefside High was no different than any other school she had applied to, but she was nervous all the same. She looked up expectantly as the outer door to the office opened, but it was not the secretary as she had expected. It was a man with short dark hair gelled into short stylish spikes. He was about 6 feet tall and well built. He looked frustrated as he turned down the hall, briefcase in hand. He seemed familiar, somehow…
"Tommy?" The name leapt out of her mouth before she even realized it.
Tommy Oliver spun around at the sound of his name. The only person in sight was the woman sitting in the hall, whom he didn't recognize. She was heavyset but not fat, average height, long dark blond hair and glasses. "Yes?"
She stood and approached him, smiling. "Tommy Oliver. I never thought I would see you again after I left Angel Grove. You won't recognize me. You knew me as Jennifer Yager." She lowered her voice. "I know who you were - you, Kim, Jason, Billy, Zach, and Trini."
He studied her face, but was still drawing a blank. She grinned at the blank look on his face and returned her voice to normal. "I told you that you wouldn't recognize me. I've lost a lot of weight since those days and my hair was longer."
She puffed up her cheeks a bit and saw the light go on in his eyes. "Of course! How are you? What are you doing here?"
She hesitated for a brief moment. "I'm…fine. I'm here for an interview. I have my teaching degree now, so I thought I would give that a go."
Just then the bell rang. "I really need to go, but if you're still here after first period, I have some free time. We can catch up."
Jennifer grinned. "That would be great. I'll see you then."
Just then the office door opened and the secretary stuck her head into the hallway. "Miss Randall will see you now."
"Good luck!" Tommy called as he headed toward his classroom. Under his breath he added, "You're going to need it."
