Agitation 3.1 is the first chapter of Agitation. Taylor jogs, meets up with Brian, breakfast along the Boardwalk. After another tough day at school with Sophia: Taylor just schives off, heads to the Undersiders hideout to hang.
The chapter starts with Taylor jogging to the Boardwalk on a Tuesday morning. She remembers she was inspired in her fitness regime in response to the trio's teasing efforts. She meets Brian there, who blends in seamlessly as a civilian, they have breakfast and Brian makes sure Taylor is healing up from her "incident" with the dog girl. They make small talk about Rachel; Taylor finds out about the girl's past and larger issues.
After demonstrating her powers of anthropoid control on a poor crab Taylor mentions she has to go to school, and Brian comments that none of the Undersiders go to school. Before she leaves, Brian gifts her the key to the base, inviting her to come around later to train.
Taylor takes a city bus to Winslow, inwardly struggling with whether or not to skip school and going through her various coping mechanisms, promising herself that she will at least attend Computer class. She walks to Mrs. Knott's class. Arriving at Knott's computer class, she's let in with the rest of the class and catches sight of Sophia with some friends, who sees her and draws a finger down her own face like a mock tear referring to the previous day's teasing. Taylor exits the school, mind in a whirl, taking a bus back to the Docks.
- As discussed in this chapter, and shown throughout the story Taylor's power is essentially to control lesser creatures that would broadly meet the category of "bug", this is influenced in part by the collective unconscious which is why she can control arthropods and more.
