Heartbreak High Episode 106
Ryan's keen on Mai and she strings him along. However, when he asks her out she turns him down flat. Hurt and embarrassed, Ryan rationalises that her rebuff must be because she's gay. When Ryan confides this to Charlie the rumour starts and slowly spreads. Mai tolerates the situation for a while but when it threatens to get out of hand she fronts Ryan and exacts her own brand of retribution when the misunderstandings are finally cleared up Ryan has the effrontery to ask Mai out again.
Les hands out an environmental project which pairs Melanie with Mai and Anita with Drazic. Anita can't imagine anything worse. She unsuccessfully tries to get out of the arrangement after first insulting Drazic and then having to fend him off when he tries to sleaze onto her.
Forced to work with Drazic, Anita starts to see another side of him. She also notices that he always seems to clown around in class to avoid reading out loud. When he does read, it's very badly. Hilary suggests he may have a learning disability. Anita approaches Ronnie who thinks Drazic may have a mild for of dyslexia. However, he's have to take some tests to make sure. Anita finally convinces Drazic to take the tests and offers to do some intensive remedial reading sessions with him. Drazic doesn't want her charity. This isn't charity, she likes him and will go out with him to prove it.
Mai and Melanie are paired together for the environmental project. They approach the task from opposite angles. Mai seeking out the easiest solution while Melanie shoots for top marks.
Mai fills a bottle with outfall water and gets it analysed for pollutants while Melanie investigates why the local seagulls are dying around the outfall pipe. The water analysis shows up little abnormality while Melanie is shocked to find it's a local lad who's shooting the birds. Mai scores the better mark much to Melanies' chagrin.
