Joel had never been so stressed. Caught up in the panic of his first day of high school, Joel had completely forgotten about the parental notes that had been sent home. He had not shown his mother the document that welcomed her to Kensington High. Joel looked down at the unsigned note, disappointed that he’d failed to comply with Ms Richards’ sole request. The teacher began collecting notes as she traversed the room. Sweat started to pour from Joel’s pale brown. His little heart beat faster each step she took nearer. He quickly ripped the lid from a pen and randomly marked the foot of the page. To his surprise, Ms Richards took the forged document without a second glance. Joel was now free to sign for homework checks, medical appointments, and personal liability. The incident transformed Joel from a nervous young wreck into someone who would eventually smuggle large quantities of drugs through Southeast Asia.
