Maddy's first change is rapidly approaching, as are her exams, which isn’t a great combination. Keeping her secret is becoming more and more difficult, especially when it causes her to break promises to her friends and be short tempered with them. Under extreme pressure in the first exam, the stress gets too much for Maddy and she starts to transform. Will Rhydian be able to get her to calm down before it's too late?
Maddy is becoming increasingly stressed about upcoming exams, and complains to her parents about recent headaches she's been having, and how her gums are suddenly starting to hurt. Her mum, recognizing the symptoms, tells Maddy that she's on the verge of transforming for the first time, and suggests that Maddy stay home for awhile until it passed. Maddy, however, rebuffs the offer, saying that she's studied too hard for her exams just to miss them because of some transformation symptoms. Her mum gives her a small vial just in case, and tells Maddy to take the medicine if she feels to stressed, as it will repress the wolf symptoms temporarily.
Walking to school, however, Maddy gets bumped into, and the vial, which was in the front pocket of her bookbag, gets smashed into a bunch of tiny pieces, rendering it useless.
