Ruby: Ginger, what are you doing?
Ginger: I’m cleaning. I thought that looked obvious.
Ruby: Actually, it looks like you’re reading a notebook from your high school chemistry class.
Ginger: I took a lot of notes in that class. I’m trying to figure out if any of it is worth saving before I recycle the paper.
Ruby: You took notes in chemistry?
Ginger: Yeah – this page is about a murder mystery story I came up with where the killer uses a series of gasses to slowly poison the victim over the course of a week.
Ruby: Those are the kind of notes I expected you to take.
Ginger: Ooh! I can’t throw this away – it’s a superhero trio I made! Gamma, Beta and Alpha! Look at how well thought out those costumes were…not bad for a 15 year old.
Ruby: Why does the tag line say “You can’t stop the most dangerous”?
Ginger: …oh, right. They weren’t superheroes. They were supervillains.
Ruby: Who were the superheroes?
Ginger: …there doesn’t seem to be…a page…for them… I guess I got distracted and forgot to create some.
Ruby: I wish that surprised me.
Ginger: I think Mom said the same thing when I told her…
Ruby: What’s this?
Ginger: A ransom note written entirely in the elements’ alphabetical symbols.
Ruby: That explains…nothing…and yet, everything.
Ginger: My creative writing teacher gave me an A on it…and also asked if I had seen anyone professional yet.
Ruby: You know he meant ‘professional’ in the ‘psychotherapy’ meaning, right?
