As soon as Rosabella leaves the dorm and since only 15 minutes have gone by, Darling gives up on her assignment and starts exercising in the dorm, putting on her workout clothes. She soon finds flowers thrown in the dorm, by a boy student who confesses his love for Darling. Though she knows all too well that his feelings aren't genuine as she politely turns him down. A while later Darling hears a loud noise coming from below. She changes back into her usual attire and heads down, finding her brother Dexter having trouble on his horse in Hero Training as he is learning how to joust. There Darling meets Apple, who gives her love letters accidentally mailed to her dorm. Apple expresses her enjoyment of answering the love letters, but Darling halfheartedly says otherwise, to Apple's dismay.

There she finds the students setting up for Parents Weekend and is well aware that her parents are unable to attend, telling the headmaster as much. Later on she heads to the fields and finds Dexter upset and comes by his side, giving him words of guarantee that it's only the first day and that at least he does something exciting than what she's doing in Damsel-In-Distressing class. A reason why Dexter was faltering in Hero Training class was because of his helmet not being able to fit his head and is not opt for his glasses. With that, Darling proposes they make their way to Book End so he can get his helmet and dented armor modified.

She returns at dawn and has a late breakfast. She is called by Dexter, who tells her he isn't feeling so good. Darling has a thought that maybe it would be a good surprise to call Betty, the blacksmith of Book End, for a delivery to Dexter's room. However, there is no answer from Betty on the phone so Darling goes to check on Betty herself. Betty is absent from work today as she has to check on her father. But because she has a lot of weight to carry, she puts the suit of armor on and is mistaken for Dexter by Dexter's classmates. Darling attends Hero Training and confesses to Dexter about it, who has come down with a case of princely pox. Because Dexter is apparently upset that she stepped in, Darling decides to save Dexter's reputation by lowering expectations of his jousting skill.

The next day, it is Parents Weekend and Darling is part of the Damsel-in-Distressing princess parade. Next is the jousting tournament between Dexter and Daring. Alarmed, Darling helps Daring win the match by slowing down time per her father's orders. The Charming family commend the three siblings and Queen Charming gives Darling a copy of Maid Marian's Secrets of Sherwood Forest, much to Darling's surprise. As she cups Darling's face in her hands, Darling feels like Queen Charming's fingers are filled with calluses, much like hers, to her suspicion. A Semi-Charming Kind of Life
