I cannot get out of my head, that I can imagine that this is the final chapter. Just savor the words and think of it; the final words, “Right?” sound so depressing for an ending (this is obviously not the final chapter at all) and I’d probably be like, “…What now…?” if it really did finish like this.
I’m so glad it’s not, though. vuv

Poor Lucy. She’s surrounded by friends who genuinely care about her but is stuck on the one guy who doesn’t want anything to do with her. Why do we always want what we can’t have?

What a cliffhanger there. If in any case Mike does end up with Sandy or at least leave in pursuit of her, I wish Lucy the best of luck to cope with such a loss. Everyone may be there for her, especially Paulo, but I’m a little skeptical that she would be able to get over it, and if she did, I doubt that it was a swift resolution.

I won’t even ask if Mike foresaw any of this. Probably because he’s got his hands full.

This perspective of Lucy amidst all this chaos, should I say, was interesting. How her mind made out all these details and reacted to the past events; somewhat predictable for someone with her mindset, but was still a treat to read. I’m actually wondering right now what Mike would be thinking about in the midst of this drama. Okay, so maybe it will be half-filled with Sandy, but as for the other that actually includes everyone else, including Lucy is something I’d really want to see.
