"Class, this is Rita" said the teacher as he presented the new student. He woke Lila sense he thought Lila had at the introduction, when in reality she was finding out Mal and Jane were hungry, and that both Fifi and Nikki wanted to go home. Lila was hit by a car when she was in second grade but survived and got a side affect where she could read minds.
Because the teacher had thought that Lila fell asleep in class he gave her detention after school where Lila saw her friends talking to the new girl she was shocked and heard her friends compliment Rita yet she went up to her friends, and asked them what they were doing and they said that they were doing and they said they were friends now. Lila tried to disagree with adding her to their friend group but they had already made up their minds.
A few days later Lila overheard Rita's thoughts on how much she hated Lila. Lila a few days later confronted her and Rita was extremely confused on how she had found out but suddenly it didn't matter to her and said "now that you know my secret there is no point in hiding it no more" . Before Lila knew it Rita grabbed a pencil and scrapped her cheek with it and told Lila to hold it which she did , and Rita screeched and yelled for help .
After a few days from the incident Jane, Mal, and Nikki started ignoring her. Lila read their minds while they walked past her and she found out Jane was the most mad about the incident while Nikki and Mal were doubting that Lila would do such a thing. One day Lila had enough of the way they were acting towards her and confronted Rita and she found out that she pushed Rita out the way in front of a car and Rita thought that she did it for attention and now Rita wants to kill her and then, Nikki and Mal happen to walk at that time and hear everything and Mal records it.
Mal and Nikki go run to the principles office and show him the recording and he calls the cops and they take Rita to a mental hospital.
Mal, Nikki, and Jane apologize for not believing her when she said something was off about Rita. And Lila forgives them and after all of that they are still friends.
