I still don’t understand. Why did they freak out?
Stevum August 29, 2012, 12:00 AM EST.
Still not sure what’s going on here. If both of their reactions were warranted, why did they recover so quickly. Also, I’m still confused about the last page. WHAT HAPPENED.
What is she even training for, it’s baseball, even if you hit, the sport is still a swing and a miss. And why do they both look slightly sad at the end?

Jasmine goes right back to training like nothing happened .
Edit: Jasmine tried doing something bold(getting closer to Paulo on the previous page) and got caught when Paulo woke up which is why she freaked and that cause Paulo to freak out as well.
I’m just curious as too why they are acting like it shouldn’t have happened since last time i checked boyfriends/girlfriends like showing each other affection.

She looks kinda sad or worried in the last pannel

I’m sooo lost
Lucy August 29, 2012, 12:02 AM EST.
Well thats a subject completely dodged, let’s talk about the water bottle
Jirky-Kake August 29, 2012, 12:02 AM EST.
So cute… We all love Jazzie, don’t we?
TheCountryBoy August 29, 2012, 12:02 AM EST.
Heh. Hsh and Qua? People fighting so hard to be First….
I don’t see why Paulo and Jasmine seem so forced right now… and it’s definitely not just shipping tinted glasses, that’s defintiely what those last panels convey. Are they back to having relationship problems?
I wouldn’t chalk it up to awkwardness over the injury; most couples bond further over one member being hurt, even if by the other. People who are willing to take care for each other tend to be closer.
Anonymous One August 29, 2012, 12:02 AM EST.
I hope this chapter is going to have them grow stronger in their relationship (unless this is before that)!
Paulo, are you snickering in that first panel?
HimbeCat379 August 29, 2012, 12:03 AM EST.
Um… I was expecting more
nomoe August 29, 2012, 12:03 AM EST.
D’awww, Jazzie loves her Paulo
Paulo, dont mess this up by brooding over Lucy!
Frodomann1 August 29, 2012, 12:04 AM EST.
If anything, that face Jasmine is putting on tells me she might skip practice… Ya know, give her boyfriend a little more attention that he deserves? >3>
Nanai August 29, 2012, 12:04 AM EST.
I’m so lost…
Chompy August 29, 2012, 12:04 AM EST.
That’s Mr. Hsh-and-Qua to you.
Nikita August 29, 2012, 12:05 AM EST.
glad to know he can purr *snicker* - my reaction to it :3
Skylar August 29, 2012, 12:07 AM EST.
Seems as though there’s two possibilities…
A) Jasmine is being shy and nervous because she just had her first “intimate” moment with Paulo (maybe with anyone?) and is trying to process her own hormones (maybe conflicting with her beliefs).
B) Jasmine is a closet lesbian but doesn’t want Paulo to feel bad.
Inukai August 29, 2012, 12:09 AM EST.
I think the point is that Jasmine is starting to actually get closer to Paulo. I know they’ve been dating but it never felt like they were ‘a thing’ if you get my meaning. Now it’s awkward because she is starting to have feelings for him and we all know how Paulo feels about someone else right now.
That and if I was in Paulo’s situation; suddenly being in the lap of your girlfriend would be weird too.
Mike August 29, 2012, 12:09 AM EST.
Could it be the paulo charm has gotin to her? Of corse its to much to resit.
Blue fox August 29, 2012, 12:09 AM EST.
Come one, Jazz, take a break and hang out with Paulo, you KNOW you want to
Subaru August 29, 2012, 12:13 AM EST.
Ok… Still no idea what happened… Perhaps since cats purr when they’re happy, Jasmine was shocked that Paulo was so happy to be in that position and Paulo reacted that way out of surprise at her shock and surprise that he was actually purring.
OwnUbyCake August 29, 2012, 12:15 AM EST.
She’s probably thinking
“Oh no… My boyfriend knows I like him! This is so embarrassing!”
Or a million other things, I’m not believing anything until the next update, I have too many guesses.
Telta August 29, 2012, 12:16 AM EST.
Guys, she freaked out because she isn’t so good at showing affection without being terribly embarrassed. They’ve only hugged and cuddled like two or three times that we’ve seen. She was sneaking in some affection while she thought he was still unconscious.
Anyway, Jazz, just go hug the boy will you? Hell, give ‘im a kiss. You know you want to!
Dr. Moron August 29, 2012, 12:18 AM EST.
In my opinion the reason why they freaked out is because the artist does not consider this whole webcomic a furry comic, just cats and other animals with and without clothes. Paulo purred, which is common among furs, I believe, and this points out why @SuitCase said “****ing furries” the page before. Therefore, when Paulo purred, Jazz got freaked out, because they aren’t furries.
Adam August 29, 2012, 12:21 AM EST.
I recall Taeshi stating at the first page that the next few chapters will help fill in gaps in the previous stories. This chapter is right after Back & Forth, which is when Paulo hooked up with a lot of ladies (Jessica, Rachel, Jazz) out of his insecurities and jealousy of Mike. It eventually ended with Paulo and Jazzie kind of warming up to each other and maybe developing those feelings.
So at this point they’re probably not even dating yet. They’re just friends. Hence why they freaked out in the last page. So yes… Jazzie is afraid of Paulo realizing that she has feelings for him.
This also explains Jazzie’s sad look in the last panel, because she doesn’t think she’ll be able to get out of that friendzone since they only pretended to date.
KiwiSong August 29, 2012, 12:27 AM EST.
Haha, look at that smile Paulo is trying to hide on P1 (Jazz clearly embarrassed). Pretty smooth of Paulo to switch the awkward moment over to the “Hey, you actually drank the water”.
On P10, Paulo obviously enjoyed the rather open sentiment expressed on the previous page, but on P11 Jazz seems to be expressing reservations.
In addition, I enjoy how Paulo’s nose suddenly became unbloody (look at me making up words!).
Edit: If what KiwiSong said is true, then everything in this chapter up until now makes even more sense.
Good Times August 29, 2012, 12:30 AM EST.
~skips the freak out scene~
There so cute<3
Sahchan August 29, 2012, 12:30 AM EST.
I think they were just freaking out because.
Paulo was purring, for one.
And Jazz had him in her lap all… Yeah.
Both embarrassing I guess?
Splatter August 29, 2012, 12:32 AM EST.
Jlaw August 29, 2012, 12:37 AM EST.
While I am still unsure how I feel about this coupling I do forever love these characters! Jas is just sweet and smart and spunky! Then Paulo, oh Paulo you are just so funny and swell I just don’t know how to handle you =^w^=
Kikimmicoa August 29, 2012, 12:37 AM EST.
See.. At first I thought it was because he was on her lap and looked down too.. But what you guys are saying makes more sense.
Jade August 29, 2012, 12:52 AM EST.
You guys do know this is a preview chapter from the new book right? One of the added chapters in the span of the story? From their point of view, they probably just started dating yesterday. Of course they are shy around each other.
EDIT: Kiwisong beat me to it and put it in better words looks like.
Skid August 29, 2012, 12:55 AM EST.
Is it just me or is she looking at his crotch briefly?
StushiJaguar August 29, 2012, 1:21 AM EST.
Remember kids, the moral of the story is to stay hydrated
UltimateZ August 29, 2012, 1:48 AM EST.
Oh, my! I was wondering how would they break the ice after freaking out, but there’s Paulo for you: he doesn’t do awkward!
I’m not sure if his badass attitude looks cute to Jasmine, or if that is what keeps her at a distance, so that she had to take the chance to cuddle him a little while he was knocked out!
Cavara August 29, 2012, 2:04 AM EST.
The last panel,is something on her mind?
lov/hurt/hate August 29, 2012, 2:12 AM EST.
People forget that this is a flashback to just after she saved his butt from a group of angry girls… And then he decided she was pretty cool and actually wanted to get to know he. Their relationship is new and they are not that intimate yet. So having him on her lap was probably a mothering kind of thing to do, caring for him. And then she panicked because she realized that could be inappropriate or more intimate that she was truly comfortable with.
Edit. I noticed more comments after I typed out mine. Similar things pointed out, different ideas of whether they are in a relationship. Pretty good explanations either way =)
t.c August 29, 2012, 3:27 AM EST.
I’m glad half of my favourite ship isn’t dead. Dave X Paulo forever.
NoRAd August 29, 2012, 3:34 AM EST.
@Adam it can not be possible to be that stupid.
packers848848 August 29, 2012, 4:03 AM EST.
Everyone note Jasmine’s expression in the last panel. Troubling thoughts after seeing Paulo’s smile. Taeshi’s going to deliver on BCB’s drama and angst yet again.
Mike breaks Lucy’s heart. Jasmine is apparently going to do something to push Paulo away. Then Lucy and Paulo finally get together and realize they’re great for each other. Yay! Head canon!
@Adam You need to think outside the box there. In the comic’s universe, the characters don’t call themselves Furries, or Furs. They are Anthropomorphic animals who still harbor basic animal instincts and traits. Paulo’s a Feline. Feline’s purr. I wonder if most people even know what Anthropomorphic means. They just see one and yell, FURRY!
Follarch August 29, 2012, 4:53 AM EST.
Jasmin and Paulo are such a sweet couple
Midstrike August 29, 2012, 5:02 AM EST.
packers848848 - obviously, it is possible to be that stupid… atleast 90% of the human race is that stupid.
i think the only reason the human race has survived as long as it has, is because just as many humans that are impossibly stupid are also sex addicts, so there is a never ending flow of stupid people, basically.
funny how paulo’s shattered face seems to have healed so quickly… what’s the point of injuring paulo if you’re just going to pretend it never happened?
Thanatos August 29, 2012, 5:32 AM EST.
Paulo purred, jasmin is freaking out since she hasn’t seen him act “genuinely” cute rather then male cute.
Charles August 29, 2012, 6:42 AM EST.
Oh shi** it looks like jess have similar concerns like paulo ……. oh oh where this will gonna end …… i am extremly looking forward next page …. hardly can`t wait it
The Duke August 29, 2012, 7:01 AM EST.
I’ve got the feeling that this is what happened before they became a couple.
Waldo August 29, 2012, 7:52 AM EST.
Last page thought bubble:
I want to bear your kittens
Huh? August 29, 2012, 9:01 AM EST.
Its sad, because Now there sort of a line forming. Jazzie likes Paulo who likes Lucy who still likes Mike, who likes Sandy, who likes Satan. Jazzie wants to show more affection towards Paulo, but she’s too nervous to do it due to them always being more “Bros” than an actual relationship. there was that whole thing a few chapters ago where she and him got in a fight, implying that they were more than friends, but after that they were just friends who hung out a lot, mainly because of the Lucy thing where she threw up on him and such.
End August 29, 2012, 9:26 AM EST.
There’s one thing that’s nagging at me, though it isn’t actually important. Her tongue…why is it so long and not coming from her mouth? OCD is bugging meeeeee.
Neospector August 29, 2012, 11:21 AM EST.
is there chapters of this story only find in the books she sales???
Sahchan August 29, 2012, 11:42 AM EST.
Spot on. Even though that Movie Date back in Back and Forth went well, the two of them weren’t actually officially dating…yet.
Jazz’s reaction could…potentially also be because of something that one of her classmates said about Paulo. Granted, she didn’t listen, but at the same time, it could be subconsciously in the back of her mind, which could be a reason as to why she jumped.
That intimate moment between them was sweet, though; not gonna lie
Chocothunda August 29, 2012, 12:18 PM EST.
Amg, these two.. why are they so d’awwesome?
Like they can never break up now, evar. I will cry a million tears if they do, because they are just perfect.
College Procratination August 29, 2012, 1:42 PM EST.
Hmmm…..last panel hints that there’s more to it that simple embarrassment.
Maybe Jazz has someone in mind that’s not Paulo
Weird one August 29, 2012, 2:06 PM EST.
Jazzy, you’re hiding something. We can all see it in the last panel. If you break his heart, I just.. couldn’t take it..
Lazy August 29, 2012, 3:08 PM EST.
and Paulo had no lasting concussion or head trauma whatsoever.
Ross. August 29, 2012, 6:43 PM EST.
I think Jazz is sad in the last panel because she feels bad that she doesn’t ever get to spend time with Paulo.
AnayuWolf August 29, 2012, 6:49 PM EST.
Uhh, I don’t know. Why are you asking me?
~@" August 29, 2012, 8:16 PM EST.
They’ve always just kinda been pals, in this flash back its nice to c more of there connection
JustSomeCritic August 29, 2012, 8:40 PM EST.
