Oh, that Lily. Digging deep.

Yashy and Blur just returned to Mike’s house. They didn’t just appear out of nowhere! You can notice the slam on the seventeenth panel.

He doesn’t looks emo to me. Just a little more emotional than he usually is.

In my opinion, the “soul mate” thing doesn’t completely exist. After all, some people never meet the person their “destined to”.

…I just noticed the title, I suddenly have a strange feeling Mike’s about to be shot down…

I actualy think that seperation strengthened their determination to stay in that relationship because humans are competitive. You see if they had stayed together they would have probably slowly drifted apart and become the kind of friends that your girlfriend ment when she said we should be friends. That is to say the type where each is has found memorys of the other but at the same time is sad that it didn’t work out between them

I hope you can picture how hard it was to write this without saying a “bittersweet” relationship

*edit* sorry for extra post. Not sure how that happend

Hah it’s like InuYasha; boy’s stuck between his friend and his old lover. Old lover is out of his reach but he still remains faithful.

Excited to see what will happen next. Will she come visit him? :O

You know… I feel for him, but far too often do we mortals pine after paradise, after the absolute perfect, after the one, that we fail to see that such abstrct things do not really exist. The only reason she is perfect is because she is far away. Because she is out of sight, and his imagination is able to flow and replace the many gaps. I think if they met in reality, Sandy would irritate him with her insistence on the need of something for her to do. And the big problem. She WON’T be perfect. Because nobody is.

To him their relationship is the siren’s song, that which is beautiful, yes, but in their quest to find true love and live happily ever after it is but the grand distraction, the golden-voiced whisper that will steer him inevitably off course, into the fog bank that blinds him to what is before his very eyes.

In the end, he will not be happy with Sandy. Because, one, it will never be permanent. Ever. Even his fantasies imagine just a few days, a few weeks, just another few months of bliss, please, God, before she fades away into dark obscurity. He KNOWS. And two, it will never be as perfect as he remembers. He remembers somebody far back, who needed him, who could provide fish every day, who he could laugh and joke and play with, who liked everything he liked. The thing is, though, that there is a much wider range of things that they do now. Will the same be true now? She has the same sense of humor, but will she be able to please him so thoroughly now? When they finally meet, will she be perfect? No she will not be perfect.

Lucy will always be there for him. As bittersweet as they are, you cannot know bliss until you have tasted agony and sorrow. There is no white if there is no black. There is no shadow without light. There is no order without chaos. It’s all a contrast. A life that is all one alabaster hue is flat. A life without Lucy would be to Mike as if the colors purple and orange were simply leeched from the world and replaced with white.

Hopefully he’ll realize that.

They are star-cross’d, truly.

HE is the only one who needs to realize that. She knows, deep in her heart and outwardly too.

@Kuragari I’ve been known to have a chaos swirling around in my brain of things almost identical to the manner of what you just said, and never been able to decipher it.

You Ser, Have Finally solved my puzzle without even knowing it existed, and for that, I thank you…
