Charles is ecstatic when he scores an ‘A' on his English assignment until he turns past the cover page and discovers Sarah's poem there by mistake. She, in turn, scored a ‘C—" when she mistakenly turned in his essay. At first afraid a low grade will threaten his financial assistance, Charles decides to square things with Sarah's teacher but keep the mix—up a secret from his own professor. Eventually, he cannot keep up the deception and confesses all to Professor Kleeman, a somewhat shady teacher who suggests he keep the grade, since it is already in the school's computer. Insisting that he be judged on his work, Charles receives a ‘B' from Kleeman on the condition he keep it to himself, as the professor is worried that if students confessed to all indiscretions, he'd be regrading papers forever.
