Fresh air, breathed in and then exhaled, echoed: Free at Last! Free! Free! A flurry of young freshman girls unpacked boxes from car to dorm, with parents’ help. No need for help it turned out. The girls had been planning their escape for the past year.
Then the freshman mixer after reluctant parents disappeared was rife with giggles and nervousness. The school year began.
The fresh batch of fairly innocent freshman girls were greeted a bit too friendly by older class males. Ah! Innocence—how nice it smells. Red Riding Hood enacted on a college campus.
Some of female dorms were noted as the “free and easy dorms”, making the marks a bit too easy. Really easy.
“Every year this happens. You’d think the parents would talk to their daughters about this. But, no. To discuss this is to condone it. So, here we are, again,” Nurse Ruth cursed.

What happened every year? The young gullible girls on Third Floor Jennings Dorm (the easy dorm; not the real dorm name) had just learned about birth control pills, the miracle of birth control pills! One girl made an appointment to see a doctor and brought back the round container of pills.
Sooo, when one had a date, she would take one pill and tah-dah she would be safe from getting pregnant. One pill = no pregnancy.
In three months, three girls were sent home to finish out their pregnancy.
Fresh air! Free at last! Free!
