well that was anticlimactic
seriously what did you guys expect
lucy you are so dumb
but you were also 12
seriously who is ready for a relationship at 12? Seriously? Especially someone as antisocial as Lucy?
see thats where you fail lucy, you seem to always blow your chances dont you?
is it just me or is mike’s shadow cracking?
The-Gray-Angel April 29, 2011, 12:00 AM EST.
He was right. They couldn’t do it forever. Lucy, if only you had let him in then, you’d be happy now. You had so much opportunity, if only you had taken it. You reap what you sow
Rukral April 29, 2011, 12:00 AM EST.
foreshadowing! Or wait… flashbackshaowing? whatever
scaught April 29, 2011, 12:00 AM EST.
Aw, my clock must of been a few second late. Well anyway, LUCY you just made the biggest mistake ever!!
x6tr2ni April 29, 2011, 12:00 AM EST.
Lucy, your are so dumb,really really dumb, for real<3 and I swear I get lower ever time 8th

Mike said that.. but he dealt with it in the present anyway. ):
I wish they’d end up together. ;A;
Fangirl April 29, 2011, 12:00 AM EST.
BYE BYE MIKE! I hope Lucy realizes what she’s done.
P.S. I thought i was going to be first commenter
NITWITT April 29, 2011, 12:00 AM EST.
It just wasn’t the time.
Then Lucy missed the right time.
But now it’s too late again.
I wonder if Lucy will have a panic attack when we get back, or if we’ll hear another backstory…
13 years old, 13th comment!
anonymous2 April 29, 2011, 12:00 AM EST.
Sad Lucy makes me sad.
Fofufu April 29, 2011, 12:00 AM EST.
Man, what a bummer. I totally feel for you Mike. At least it explains Mike’s behavior in the present. MikexSandy
KillerCobraZ117 April 29, 2011, 12:00 AM EST.
Poor poor, Lucy and Mike…
La Commie April 29, 2011, 12:00 AM EST.
That was sad but i see why lucy is like that. I also find sad that people only put an S in their comment so they can get first *cough* anon….
Ohai:) April 29, 2011, 12:00 AM EST.
She grew to regret this
Tae I love the silhouette of mike and lucy I mention this because not much can impress me this much

Angsty Lucy is angsty
Yoinkinator April 29, 2011, 12:02 AM EST.
1. Reject boy
2. Ask him out years later
3. Get rejected
4. Act surprised
**** I made a new post instead of editing and made spam…sorry about that.
Cadence April 29, 2011, 12:02 AM EST.
Denied, then turns into a cruel irony. It will be interesting seeing what their futures turn out to be.
starfighter105 April 29, 2011, 12:02 AM EST.
Oh poor Lucy. It’s a shame Mike couldn’t wait just a little longer
Keno April 29, 2011, 12:03 AM EST.
… wow, what is the point of posting here with letters and numbers?
On a far less critical note. I feel that this was an epic flashback
Jazicle April 29, 2011, 12:03 AM EST.
I don’t think I’ve wanted a shirt any more that that “Band Name Here” shirt in my life…. Okay, that’s not entirely true but, still, DO WANT.
Also, once again digging the effects on the panel backgrounds (especially panel 2)
Mikaro April 29, 2011, 12:05 AM EST.
Well, we KNEW that wouldn’t go anywhere. Friggin, we know the future and they aren’t together, so no surprises there. Not sure what’s up with Lucy, but hey…
Ampp3 April 29, 2011, 12:05 AM EST.
@Cadence your latest post is most excellent. Cause and effect strikes again.
Ampp3 April 29, 2011, 12:06 AM EST.
What’s really sad is seeing all of the single-letter posts from people competing to get some sort of first-place trophy.
Nade April 29, 2011, 12:06 AM EST.
To be honest alot of girls where i live in Brisbane start having “relationships” at 10
And its surprising and disgusting how far they go. (Pregnant 13 year old at my school.)
Mikes face in the second panel breaks my heart 3
I feel so bad for both mike and lucy.
Stuffnthat April 29, 2011, 12:06 AM EST.
That dumb Mike move in way too fast and way too early, he should of waited for a while. Even if he did succeed he would create a time paradox and doom us all! At least from this point on he would only give out vague hints to Lucy instead of being blunt about it, and we all know what happens from that point on.
Darf14 April 29, 2011, 12:06 AM EST.
Must know what happens next!!!
Oki April 29, 2011, 12:07 AM EST.

what’s she gonna tell to the girls now?
“it was Mike but it blew it”?
Colelinic April 29, 2011, 12:09 AM EST.
Well kids still do get in relationships and say things like I love and a week later they are saying to some one else
A April 29, 2011, 12:10 AM EST.
Awwwww so sad, i think i might cry :’( lets just hope they’ll love each other again
!asian power! April 29, 2011, 12:10 AM EST.
Lucy you led him on then he goes with it then you say you can’t do this my ****en god girl I know there Is a name for people like you but I don’t know it (if anyone knows please tell me)
DinR April 29, 2011, 12:11 AM EST.
Mike spoke the truth here; they couldn’t carry it on forever.
Guess Lucy knows now, huh?
Titanium Dragon April 29, 2011, 12:13 AM EST.
Asianpower please don’t cry you know it makes me feel akward
DinR April 29, 2011, 12:13 AM EST.
HMMM… well my opinion of mike just ****ing 180d. so it turns out that lucy has the good old fashioned “i cant have it and now i want it” man now she looks like the *** hole in all this.
Thespianut April 29, 2011, 12:15 AM EST.
Mk, guys.. yeah Lucy blew her chance.. She was friggin’ twelve! I completely understand that she wasn’t ready to start a relationship at twelve. I’m pretty sure I wasn’t. So it’s not completely her fault.
Day~Day April 29, 2011, 12:15 AM EST.
I don’t get how everything thinks Lucy did something stupid. She was 12 and scared, not to mention confused. Hell, Mike’s too young too, he just went on impulse and I don’t even think he realizes what he’s doing either. They’re both just young confused kids at this point.
I mean, sure, later on they become a paranoid antisocial angry chick and an *** of a guy, but right now they’re just kids lol
Also, do what forever, exactly? I’m not sure what he’s getting at with that. Childish flirting and a mutual like for one another? Well no, I suppose that can’t go on forever and Lucy should have done something sooner or later. Although it seems like he’s trying to pressure her into a relationship right now, which isn’t cool.
But damn Mike way to be a jerk about it later on lol
Oh and that’s Mike’s mom? She looks sorta angry from the side profile.
Jynx April 29, 2011, 12:15 AM EST.
Sorry never mind my computer lagged my bad but I still don’t under shade were your leading with this lol :o
Tophat nation April 29, 2011, 12:16 AM EST.
she’s probably just annoyed that Mike went out without a coat again, which is why she brought it to him. What a champ <3
Taeshi April 29, 2011, 12:17 AM EST.
Young relationships always fail anyways, thats why even now i refuse to get in one utill i meet some one i know i love.
clay w. April 29, 2011, 12:17 AM EST.
See those tears in the second panel? Crushed heart, that is.
Lycan April 29, 2011, 12:18 AM EST.
Day day the diff between you and her is she made it look like she wanted it then decided she didn’t and I’m assuming you didn’t lead anyone on like that
DinR April 29, 2011, 12:18 AM EST.
Demonios, hasta ahora Lucy me caia bien pero ahora pienso que es medio tonta (She is the jerkface) Sabes en realidad pienso que ella tiene lo que se merece, para mi Lucy paso de ser un personaje conflictuado a una triste Drama Queen, pero bueno tal vez mas adelante se explique el porque de su comportamiento. Saludos desde Mexico
PD. Tu comic esta muy chido
Minona April 29, 2011, 12:18 AM EST.
Tophat nation: I deleted a bunch of people who just posted letters in the comments section and the main first post because all they said was “first!” and “poor mike” and that’s not substantial enough. Don’t know who you were :U but if you posted just a letter then that’s why durp durp durp
Taeshi April 29, 2011, 12:18 AM EST.
I’m 12 and what is this?
Cocoron April 29, 2011, 12:20 AM EST.
No it’s still there and I posted more but my computers crap so I didn’t see it I see it know tho lol
Tophat nation April 29, 2011, 12:20 AM EST.
so what are you bitching about then
you said i deleted your posts and yet they’re still there
try not to jump into conclusions next time okay
Taeshi April 29, 2011, 12:20 AM EST.
Mike is a slug on panel one =P
Bobby B. April 29, 2011, 12:21 AM EST.
why does Mike’s mom sees like angry?
Rudi April 29, 2011, 12:21 AM EST.

Tophat nation April 29, 2011, 12:21 AM EST.
My final point still stands.
Taeshi April 29, 2011, 12:22 AM EST.
Oh I totally just realize Mike has a coat in the last panel. Guess my mom would’ve been angry at me for playing out in the snow without a coat or something too.
… But then he has fur…
… Hey do fur coats exist in the Bittersweet Universe?
Jynx April 29, 2011, 12:24 AM EST.
Mike’s just upset, but Lucy looks terrified. Maybe if he had tried understanding her, he wouldn’t have been shut down
poubelle April 29, 2011, 12:24 AM EST.

Oh. Good I read the comments, either way I wouldn’t know that hey were 12
Now waiting for Monday to come…
Maybe she wasn’t ready or didn’t like Mike as much as he does and thinks she does. End of flashback or now Lucy being sad?
Eleanor April 29, 2011, 12:25 AM EST.
*Sigh* ill never understand why people do stuff like that
Thespianut April 29, 2011, 12:26 AM EST.
it’s times like this you almost forget it’s lucy’s birthday….last 11 pages of it are probably gonna be hella awkward ಠ_ರೃ
Sethorien April 29, 2011, 12:28 AM EST.
Damnit Lucy, you had your chance to be happy, but no you rejected Mike.
Still sad though as this flashback shows how badly Lucy messed up.

Asian Guy April 29, 2011, 12:29 AM EST.
It’s not Lucy’s fault that she rejected him. Seriously, she was 12. She was taken by surprise, naturally, feeling scared and awkward, turned away. You can’t blame her for that.
Either way, I feel sorry for both of them here. : (
Flara April 29, 2011, 12:31 AM EST.
I was with Lucy the entire time. Yeah she kind of messed it up. She didn’t know at the time that she’d be in the situation of truly falling for Mike like she did and him running off for Sandy and not looking back at her. So yeah… it’s not her fault. Mike forced it on the poor gal. If I were in that situation, I’d do the exact same. I’m pretty antisocial in real life myself, so that’d scare the crap out of me… :c Poor Lucy.
Rachel Vang April 29, 2011, 12:35 AM EST.
Honestly Taeshi, I didn’t know what to expect after that last page. It could’ve gone either way far as I could tell.
Poor Mike and Lucy. I want to cry now.
I’m surprised they’re still friends after that event. Goes to show you that their friendship is stronger than ever.
I guess Mike didn’t get that scarf in this flashback… I was hoping he would get a scarf here before he left, but wasn’t fully expecting.
Can’t believe this chapter is almost over!

Usually I only use one word comments but seeing as teashi is On a which
Hunt now, I think I’ll say something more “substantial”. I find this all hilarious
And filled with such beautiful irony it’ almost intoxicating. My only questions
Being: what happened, and why haven’t we seen this before.
Blindman April 29, 2011, 1:01 AM EST.
WAIT A MINUET!!!! “I don’t know if we can do this forever!” WHAT HAVE THEY BEEN DOING FOREVER!! Kids these days >

waaaait… so this happened three years ago?? WHAT? 12? i don’t know kids now days but i would freak out if my best friend kissed me at that age, kinda like Lucy actually. aww his heart is broken… or may i say shadow? whatever, amaizing page and story line.

I agree. When I was 12 a lot of people started going out at my school but god I didn’t even think about dating guys. I was in my own little kid world. those were them days.
also, only 11 pages left! This was a long *** chapter
Memory Anemone April 29, 2011, 1:20 AM EST.
SilberCorgi April 29, 2011, 1:21 AM EST.
Geeze… when I was 12 I was too busy playing video games, reading as many books as I could get my hands on, and barely had friends. If one of my male friends had kissed me I probably would have beaten their face in. Relationships were no where on my mind at that time. I was a lot like Lucy in the fact I was very much a tom boy. (I even had girls mistake me for a guy. )
I can completely understand where she is coming from because I was exactly the same, down to being an outcast in kindergarten. I honestly wish I had had someone like Mike to be my friend back then and the fact he stayed with her for so long is really a big effort on his part.
At the same time though, the distancing and being mean now BS is definitely not something he should be doing. He knows her better than anyone so he has to know just how much this is hurting her on the inside.

Adellbaker April 29, 2011, 1:53 AM EST.
Now I really do understand why Mike despites Lucy sometimes.
He feels like she’s just toying with him.
I’ve felt that way when I was younger.
And believe me when I say: It sucks.
Sérgio April 29, 2011, 1:57 AM EST.
omg I know..12 year olds shouldn’t be dating or kissing or anyting with relationships for that matter!! Too young!!

Lucy Lucy Lucy…. =/ you were too young tis okay..YOU HAVE PAULO NOW!!! 8 D…OR…Carter? oO
Ren April 29, 2011, 2:01 AM EST.
Lucy was getting close to a full emotional breakdown there. Some are saying she was dumb to stop it. I say there were deep emotional reasons.

Scientific Mind April 29, 2011, 3:08 AM EST.
Sue and mike get married in the future and have a baby girl who is the same colour as mike but looks like sue and the child when she’s older she goes back in time and marries mikes dad, nails him, and has mike as a child.
Mike x Sue
Their kid goes back in time when older x Mikes dad
…does that make Mike his own grandfather, if you can see it my point of retarded insane point of view?
If not, then just disregard all this.
Smugleaf April 29, 2011, 3:11 AM EST.
Oh c’mon guys, they were just pre teens! Mike was already hormonal but Lucy didn’t yet, aaaaaaaa
Of course she did to regret it, well, now got some flashback to drowse about his lips

Taeshi you have a very good point.
I withdraw my previous rants. I completely agree with Lucy now.
Mike has issues…
CatTrooper April 29, 2011, 3:45 AM EST.
Why does Mike’s mom look angry?
firstname.lastname@example.org April 29, 2011, 4:03 AM EST.
Mike’s precocious development could probably be traced back to Sandra/Sandy. Not that I have anything against the girl, I’m just saying I agree with Tae on this one.
To all of you who still think those two knuckleheads end up together, I would respectfully point you all to the bottom of the FAQ page.
With best intentions,
PS: stop bitching. None of you had kissy-huggy relationships at 12. Most of you don’t have one now.
PPS: Is that Mike’s weakling heart being torn asunder in the background of panel 2, then reforming anew in 3?
Dext April 29, 2011, 4:08 AM EST.
Jesus 12 is too young for a serious relationship. Come on guys. COME ON. Even 14 is kinda young. And who’s to say they will stay the same people they were when they were 12? People change. There’s the possibility they could’ve broken up anyway cause of stuff like that. They’re not like OMG TWU WUV AT AGE 10 4EVA SYAORAN AND SAKURA!!111 (which still confuses the HELL out of me, but it’s cute, but wow. Wow.)
Just sayin’ to all the “OMG LUCY U SO STUPID” people.

Yeah 12? Hahaha..ha…um yeah…who could fall in love then?
Tessa Fan April 29, 2011, 4:47 AM EST.
I can’t believe the amount of people that fall for the FAQ thing…go to the bottom of the page and keep refreshing. It changes from yes to no randomly.
P.S. it seems like you’re the only one bitching at the moment and you don’t know when we had relationships or if we have one now…
Sandvich April 29, 2011, 5:06 AM EST.
Lucy + Mike = Hot couple
Lucy + Shy = Lucy you should have done it…
Pwnzez April 29, 2011, 5:31 AM EST.
If Lucy is this dumb now, how else would she act then? Oh the drama they go through…
Anyway, looks like both original predictions about this arc were right. It was a slumber party AND something happening between Mike and Lucy!
CriticalQuit April 29, 2011, 5:38 AM EST.
Mike has the little tears bubbling up in panel 2…
Sandvich April 29, 2011, 5:39 AM EST.
I thought the flashback was about Sandy stealing Mike’s virgin kiss???? But Lucy missed her chance then but Mike kinda missed his chance in the future.
Arra Sails April 29, 2011, 5:50 AM EST.
Ooooh the wonderful awkwardness. This is what keeps this comic going. Now I’m just wondering what happened at the sleepover. Did Lucy zone out for an hour or did she tell all of this? To find out, stay tuned for the next episode of Bittersweet Candy Bowl!
Fortunos April 29, 2011, 6:03 AM EST.
aw, poor guy

Can’t say he didn’t warn her.
Null April 29, 2011, 6:39 AM EST.
Well, you are right, no one is ready for relationships at the age of 12, but Lucy blew it with mike. They could of been a happy couple if Lucy didn’t rejected him then, Taeshi, you are an evil god toward your charaters.
Just have Lucy and Mike as a couple so the fans have what they want, and that you can have 2x the fame and feel better about yourself.
I should know this when I had one of my charaters fall in love with the other main charater, but that took place in 2815 or 2814, I can’t remember…

Really? Wow. I dodn’t get my first legitimate kiss until, what, 14? However, it was definitely on the snogging end of the spectrum.

lucy you are so dumb
but you were also 12
seriously who is ready for a relationship at 12? Seriously? Especially someone as antisocial as Lucy?” OP is obviously speaking from experience even if it’s wrong.
Ranger April 29, 2011, 7:40 AM EST.
Mike looks so cute in panel 3.
Its so sad but so cute. Why must you keep confusing us with the drama!
mdg245 April 29, 2011, 7:47 AM EST.
I wouldn’t say antisocial, just distrusting at times even of her best friend. BUT, I didn’t create the personality now did I?
Anyway, you’re right. A relationship at 12 is just rediculous. Too much for 12-year-olds to be thinking about.
ArrowDynamic April 29, 2011, 7:47 AM EST.
Good for Lucy!!!! She didn’t like mike hen and he tried to force her into a relationship she didn’t want

Hen was supposed to be then
Dr.pepper April 29, 2011, 8:01 AM EST.
oh lucy, you just blew it for the next few years.
asimplefangirl April 29, 2011, 8:03 AM EST.
I think that she did want it, but she just wasn’t emotionally mature enough to handle a serious relationship. Mike has probably always been somewhat ahead of her in terms of maturity I’m guessing. So her window of opportunity came when he had matured to the point of wanting a relationship when she was still too immature to want that kind of intimacy. (speculation…)

Taeshi: I agree! I certainly wasn’t…and I certainly don’t blame Lucy here.
Something similar happened to me actually…I had NO idea how to react nor did I even want to be in a relationship so I just kind of…ignored it. I probably came off as a bitch and felt horrible for it..but now actually we are pretty good friends and that was SO long ago haha.
Also…Mike’s mom doesn’t look very happy with Mike.
Iris April 29, 2011, 8:42 AM EST.
Nice foreshadowing, Kid Mike.
SushiJaguar April 29, 2011, 8:43 AM EST.
on other news: Mike wearing a blazer.
Well this kiss seems to have turned out very differently from the royal wedding kiss which we witnessed today as well.
Migrant April 29, 2011, 8:44 AM EST.
Not this moment, but just comic looks kind of like “Pride and Prejudice”, of course I’m not saying that the author took the motive, just when I read it it kinda makes me think about that book.
So please, please don’t think I accuse Taeshi of something.
Ok, I know, I suck at computer graphic. And - I’m not saying that they’re just like the characters from that novel, it JUST makes me feel like it sometimes.

What a scary mother. Looks like she’s pushing him to go faster.

lucy is right though, 12 is toooo early for a relationship, especially for lucy dear. btw OMG AUGUSTUS KEYCHAİİİN!!!!
hey its meh lolz April 29, 2011, 9:52 AM EST.
I just realized. Is this all in her head? Or is Lucy actually telling the story. Cause if she is telling it I can’t wait to see how the other girls react to this!

I’m starting to think that the problem is not Lucy but Mike.
I mean he’s looking for love way to soon. He tied himself down when he was in the 3rd grade for christ sakes and now he’s trying to tie Lucy down when she was 12.
Keep it in your pants dude!

@Minona oooh! alguien mas de México?! genial!!
@Taeshi The comic is great! as always, but i have to ask you, why o why did your marketing team decided to go with “yellow Sakura” as the model for the keychain!?, i know its one of the most recognizable dresses she wears, but hell if i like it, there are much MUCH better ones!
hey! i know! put THIS in Jasmine and i will certainly buy it
yes… in love with Jasmine… and Sakura… whatever, i know its probably the last “CCS/BSCB” mesh you do, but ugh, I really don´t like the Yellow costume…

Now everything makes sense. Congratulations for the excellent storytelling, Taeshi. You know the perfect timing when to present certain details of characters and events in this story.
And I really must praise the simple use of one color backgrounds which covers the whole comic page. Simple yet enough for the comic readers to feel the atmosphere.
Keep up the good work, Taeshi!

Tastycakez April 29, 2011, 11:57 AM EST.
wow so, i guess all 2 days (except weekend) there is going to be a new page, so 3 in a week and about 12 in a month,…
just tell me ppl, how are you gonna stand it to wait that much for the story to go on?
I mean, i know its “just” a comic but god, i read it all in the last few days and after reading, now i just feel like i am pretty bad kicked between the legs and stabbed in the heart because, i want to know what will happen next.
Just, does anyone feel the same or did i just got caught in a jail of imagination where i actually care more about life in this comic than my life in the real world?
And Taeshi, i would like to ask you, are you just making page for page by time or do you have already (for example) finished the chapter (or maybe even more) and just show a new one by all 2 days to keep the time, your fans have to wait for it constant?
and sorry for probably bad grammar, i am only from germany so, its not my mother tongue.
just keep doing it as well as you did till now, i love it just, even when it reminds me to myself and also to mistakes i’ve made and regret.
anonymus April 29, 2011, 12:23 PM EST.
JMOR: I picked the second opening Cardcaptor Sakura dress because it has a very “yellow wing” theme and Rachel happens to wear yellow wings as her hair-pins in her general design. Or just a wing-related pin (since they have been blue in the past). So it’s just very in-character to the Cardcaptor Sakura yellow outfit design. It is in no way saying I think that’s the best, it is just the most fitting.
No other characters will be cosplaying as anime characters for keychains in future.
(Besides that second movie Cardcaptor Sakura dress is so horrifyingly ugly to me and i’ve always hated it, but hey different strokes for different folks ahhaaha)
Anonymus: I try to have the chapter complete by the time they are published so pages tend to be done months in advance. I would honestly rather consistently update than post them all and have the audience waiting months for the next chapter like it used to be in the old days. I do apologise for the waits, though!!
Taeshi April 29, 2011, 12:54 PM EST.
I fell the same, i know it’s hard to wait and hell, i fill regret on reading all the way trough,the comic itout stoping, but its so darn good, so i recomende you to have patience,practise something(drawn for an ex.) and read outher web-comics or normal comics, i recomend you (if not) read Two kinds, its good too.( Hope im not telling nothing bad)
sorry for bad english, im not either very good at english

Well according to fan-fiction laws just about every kid-character in Naruto had pretty early shipping stories built around them…
Though it could be because there is a difference between cats and ninjas

why, oh, why? why is everyone so depressed?
here is my advice to them:
mike - (not depressed @ the mo)
lucy - just go out with carter already!!!!
sandy - GO AWAY!!!!!!
daisy - (i can’t remember if shes depressed or not) stick with abbie!
tess - apologize a lot!
red riding hood - do not talk to the wolf
jess - forgive tess (plz?)
bob - go eat a pie
that is all there is from me at the mo! luv the comic!
p.s. mike looks so defeated in panel 3

P.S- I know how mikes feels, i was almoust in his shoes, but i know a thing, and surely it will happen…
RaymanX11 April 29, 2011, 3:12 PM EST.
WTF is with some of you people? Was Lucy supposed to just roll over and let Mike do her or something? She an insecure 12 year old girl! Mike’s just as much to blame for what happened (now and later) as she is.
Lets also not forget that even though she isn’t physically there, Sandy is still a factor.
Mattx2 April 29, 2011, 3:17 PM EST.
@fishy: Carter scares Lucy. And Sandy isn’t there to begin with. Stop blaming her. Now Mike’s focus on her…
@Mattx2: People are loathe to remember she was forced to become a loaner in her formative years. Things from that early tend to last. Like her interest in Mike and Paulo. Or her love for her pets. Or her not being comfortable letting people know the real her. It’s cute.
Hoheh April 29, 2011, 3:44 PM EST.
I think that Lucy is going to run out, and give Mike his first scarf… ^_^
Or well see Sandy come into Mike’s life and she’ll give the scarf to him. 0_O
Vincent April 29, 2011, 3:49 PM EST.
Nobody gave Mike the scarf. Check Wonderland and you’ll see. I think Mike tried to use the scarf as a gesture towards her. Lucy says that he spent a long time fussing over the colors, and it should be noted that the scarf is the exact same color as her eyes.
Nithros April 29, 2011, 3:59 PM EST.
@Nithros Thanks for the correction. But one must think… Why did she use it as a hanky when she was feeling sick…
Vincent April 29, 2011, 4:05 PM EST.
@ZorZhen SI!, comienza la invasión!!! hahaha, millones de EstadoUnidenses entrarán y no entenderán nada de lo que hablamos
@taeshi sure sure, everyone haves their opinion, but still i like any custom better than the yellow one
JMOR April 29, 2011, 4:25 PM EST.
Because a) he refused to tell her why he was so picky about the color, b) she’s Lucy, and c) it feels nice, everyone agrees, especially when you have a cold
42 April 29, 2011, 4:25 PM EST.
@Vincent Touché. Perhaps she didn’t see the gesture. I can’t help but feel that this is the reason for the scarf’s color being fussed over. The timing is too perfect, and the fact that they’re the same color can’t be ignored. Additionally, I agree with others. Lucy is insecure, 12 years old, and suspicious that Sandy still has a large part in Mike’s thoughts. She has good grounds to say no, and every right.
Nithros April 29, 2011, 4:28 PM EST.
Does anyone else notice how Mike’s mom looks almost angry or upset with him? And on another note, I actually think that although it does mess her up in the future, Lucy made a smart move here in rejecting ol’Mike. 12 is way to young to be fooling around like that regardless. You don’t even really know what you want, let alone what love is (kinda) till youre older anyways.
TheNameless April 29, 2011, 4:37 PM EST.
12 might be a young age. But depending on the person is when you’re ready for a relationship, some people are more mentally stable and prepared for relationships at different ages than others. Perhaps Lucy wasn’t prepared for it at that age and maybe Mike was or wasn’t ready either; maybe Mike was just so caught in the heat of the moment he couldn’t hold back his love?
Either way, they both sorta screwed up on their own part and there is no its his/her fault only…
Sandvich April 29, 2011, 4:51 PM EST.

Kids these days jump waaay too soon into things that should be done in later years. When I was these kids age I was still hiking around the woods in my backyard getting all sorts of cuts and scrapes from jumping and climbing up trees. Last thing on my innocent young mind was the girls around school, it was thinking about the buried treasure hidden in the forest guarded by pirate ninjas.

Lucy needz 2 make up her mind. First she doest want mike when he wants her the she want him when he doesn’t want her. Lucy and her stubornness. And that wasn’t supose to be perverted
nate2prodigy April 29, 2011, 7:44 PM EST.
A lot of people say how dumb Lucy is about letting Mike go and that maybe she pushed him away because she wasn’t ready for a relation ship but I think the situation is a bit different. Lucy probably pushed Mike away because she thought that she was just going to be a replacement for Sandy.

I hate seeing mike cry, especially when David exposes himself indecently to him.
Smyke April 29, 2011, 8:31 PM EST.
I think a lot of people are being consumed by their desire for Lucy and Mike to be a couple that they ignore the facts that these two are 12 years old, Mike is still not quite over Sandy, and Lucy knows it.
Nithros April 29, 2011, 8:35 PM EST.
When a guy goes and kisses a girl and she rejects him then tells him to go, its a ego breaker. Even if she had rejected him and they had talked about it it would have been fine, but she was just like “go” and doesn’t wanna talk, thats a good way to put strain on a friendship.
Marik April 29, 2011, 8:59 PM EST.
I really doubt Sandy had anything to do with this. Sandy left at the end of third grade / beginning of fourth. There’s nothing at all to suggest that she even crossed Mike’s mind until he phoned her in ninth grade. Why would Lucy at all be thinking of her when neither of them have had any reason to do so for quite some time?
Null April 29, 2011, 9:07 PM EST.
Remember, Sandy and Mike are still writing to each other. They’re both still a part of the other’s life. He gets letters from her with hearts on them. She’s kind of still a big deal to him.
Nithros April 29, 2011, 9:12 PM EST.
The frequency died down up to the point where he called her. I know back in the chapter where he broke his leg, he got a letter from her, but by then they were few and far between. Also, Lucy seemed genuinely happy that he was still writing to her at the moment- so either she doesn’t mind Sandy or she’s slightly manipulative.
Null April 29, 2011, 9:17 PM EST.
Kas April 29, 2011, 9:25 PM EST.
@Null I believe you’re forgetting the fact that Lucy might not have been quite over Paulo. Remember, both of them had first crushes, and while Mike was open at the time, Lucy’s first crush was, indeed, Paulo. And he’s been there for a while, and would stay there for longer still. We may not see it yet, but I think Paulo has a bigger role than we think in all this.
TheWorstAstronomer April 29, 2011, 10:34 PM EST.
Lucy is not the problem, Mike is. He’s moving way too quickly and simply using Lucy so that he can feel loved while Sandy isn’t around. Lucy may think that she needs Mike but in reality he needs her. Mike has been keeping Lucy around so that he has someone to fall back on and who he feels that he can control. As good as a MikexLucy relationship sounds, he’s just going to continue using her unless he smartens up.
Carlile April 29, 2011, 10:58 PM EST.
wow 12 at seventh grade?
i was 12 in 6th grade ^^
Mai April 29, 2011, 11:04 PM EST.
In BCB, every one is one year ahead of normal, gradewise. They’ll graduate at 17.
Nithros April 29, 2011, 11:19 PM EST.
Must we blame someone? Must we?
Clever thing noticed. Mike can move in a relationship almost as fast as he runs.
Hoheh April 29, 2011, 11:31 PM EST.
@Carlile Lucy AND Mike are equally at fault in this, they both contribute to the problem in their relationship right now. Mike and Lucy seem to use eachother, Lucy uses him as an emotional crutch (sometimes) while Mike uses her as a replacement for Sandy (sometimes). But its not just those 2 points that their relationship revolves around. MUCH more has damaged them but I’m not in the mood to state them all
To sum it up, its not fair to point fingers when they both screwed up. It just seems like you personally hate Mike.
P.S. Mike doesn’t follow and use Lucy I think you got some of those roles mixed up.
Sandvich April 29, 2011, 11:38 PM EST.

That page and the ones after it. The trail has been very rocky. Blaming people is overrated.
It isn’t Lucy’s fault. Socializing just didn’t work. It’s not Mike’s fault. First crush. It’s not Sandy’s fault. She hasn’t done anything. Pick the one you’re mad at and get over it. I like all three, personally.
Hoheh April 30, 2011, 12:09 AM EST.
I feel that this should have likely been anticipated by mike, but he’s something of oblivious to alotta things.

Cholleca April 30, 2011, 2:28 AM EST.
Given how anti-social Lucy was and only after a lot of development has started to crawl out of that shell….little wonder this’s how that turned out. I really don’t fault Mike or Lucy, back then Lucy wasn’t willing to try, Mike later gave up. It happens in life.
It’s merely sad that when Lucy did start to like Mike, his interest was starting to garner elsewhere…sadly Mike’s handled the turnaround without the grace he showed Lucy back then, which is where I say he deserves a Clu-by-4 to the nuts.
Weltall84 April 30, 2011, 3:43 AM EST.

Arra Sails April 30, 2011, 5:14 AM EST.
i tried a relationship with my long standing female friend when i was 12 i was so shy i couldn’t even kiss her on the cheek it also didnt last long probably cause of that fact and her life didnt go well after that ah regret what bitter lesson you teach
0mnifarious April 30, 2011, 5:24 AM EST.
@ The-Gray-Angel: his shadow cracking? I think it’s more like his heart breaking. He put up with so much of Lucy’s crap for so long, her fear of her own emotions and her violent/psychotic outbursts. He finally decides to open up to her and she again reacts violently. Kind of amazing he stayed around for as long as he did, really.
Mojojojo April 30, 2011, 5:35 AM EST.
Why do people expect them to go mushy at 12? They’re only kids. It’s a shame that it ends up in Lucy loosing her chance with Mike. It wasn’t good of him to try to force it on her.
Usually Quiet April 30, 2011, 7:36 AM EST.
@Usually Quiet ,what do yah epect us guys are idiots … and yess im calling my self a idiot
kogen April 30, 2011, 9:37 AM EST.
Problem number one with a relationship at 12: disillusionment (“I was hoping for a better MikeXLucy moment”) Thanks for being an example.
LostInPhilly89 April 30, 2011, 10:15 AM EST.
You keep letting him go even though you know you love him
Don’t hold back your feelings cuz one day you will love him and then he won’t love you
ZeezooxxWulf April 30, 2011, 10:45 AM EST.
you know you love him, don’t hold it back
and Lucy, you weaken me >:U
every time you get close to Mike suddenly there’s this big barrier that says “DON’T LET MIKE THROUGH” all over it. one day you gotta break that barrier. but if you don’t, you might fall in love with someone else, but that barrier says “DON’T LET MIKE AND OTHER PEOPLE THROUGH” so you can’t love. so if you find yourself 95 and in a house full of cats yelling “Get off my grass!” then blame that stupid barrier
MikeXLucy April 30, 2011, 10:50 AM EST.
it seems like the only reason people can come up with for so many issues between them is “duurrr shes 12 years old, Mike is too pushy.” Seriously, theres more to it than being a little kid…
Sandvich April 30, 2011, 11:32 AM EST.
=0 i noticed his shadow cracked as well
qua April 30, 2011, 11:35 AM EST.
It’s pretty unfair to say that Lucy was an idiot for passing up an opportunity with Mike >:U SHE WAS 12! She didn’t even believe in the fact that her friendship with Mike could have been in jeopardy years later. Plus there’s that whole Sandy thing.
If anything, WHAT IF Mike and Lucy were to become a couple - would Mike be just as loyal to Lucy once Sandy came into the picture? He did have some sort of obsession with her. Maybe that’s why Lucy didn’t want to start anything with Mike. Maybe even at 12, she realized that she could possibly be a replacement for Sandy.

WHHHHHHYYYYY LUCYYYY WHHHHHHYYYYYYYY?!?! ToT
Nishakun April 30, 2011, 3:28 PM EST.
What if this “shattering” of hopes to be with Lucy is a reason he likes Sandy even more present-day in the comic?
Sandvich April 30, 2011, 4:26 PM EST.
@LostInPhilly89 Don’t use bad examples, please. Just because someone is disappointed that a web comic didn’t have a section written the way they wanted it, doesn’t mean that they will fail in a relationship at the age of twelve. I’m not going to lie and say that every relationship at that age will succeed, I’m not even going to say that a few of them will. It’s even less than that. But, you know what? That’s relationships in general. Most of them fail. If not for one reason, then for another.
On-topic: Meh. This chapter is going by quickly. Not much to say about this particular comic, just what others have said. Both are at fault, obviously. The only thing I have to add is that so many people are saying that Mike’s taking it way too fast and such, but it’s not like he wants to do anything particularly lewd. He wants to express his affection toward her in the best way he knows possible, and that is kissing. You see it everywhere, it’s the universal symbol of love between two people (at least for the majority of the people in the USA, I’m assuming it’s the same in the BCB Universe).
Perses April 30, 2011, 4:52 PM EST.
So Lucy’s mom is an older Daisy, Mike’s mom is an older Sue, and Sandy’s mom is an older Molly. Hm….
Floweramon April 30, 2011, 5:48 PM EST.
You see, in my opinion, Lucy loves Mike, but her feelings for him are masked by the fact the she is somewhat of a tomboy and has been rejected by many people when she was younger and teased about how “good” she looks. She doesn’t understand that Mike loves her for who she is. For one thing, five minutes ago they were playing and joking around, then all of a sudden this gets sprung on her. I bet she was shocked and had so many emotions and thoughts she couldn’t think about the consequences of losing him.
Hey, I would have the same if this happened to me.
Cathy April 30, 2011, 7:01 PM EST.
Oh, they were twelve? It’s excusable then.
Pick Yer Poison April 30, 2011, 8:08 PM EST.
This is so totaly predictable. Seriously. And now everyone who bashed on Mike (includ. me) will have to bow their head in shame. Oh Lucy, you DO deserve everything that Mike did. He was right when he said they couldn’t do that forever. A heart for a heart Lucy. You broke his, and now he broke yours. Peachy huh?
ArtsyV April 30, 2011, 10:22 PM EST.
Feels like the quality is starting to go crap again =/

Taeshi April 30, 2011, 11:10 PM EST.
It got better?
Ed April 30, 2011, 11:27 PM EST.
HA I forgot they were 12. Back then, a kiss was like, the most serious thing ever at that age. (sex? what’s that? if anything, they were only just learning about it)
Still, I love this. the drawing style keeps getting better and better.
One comment, though. How does mike have a shirt??
Yeah, I guess his mom could have brought it.
Taeshi, Idk what Bob means. I think it’s as great as ever. Admittedly, mike’s face by the door was a bit… well, perhaps too chibi. like, how it was drawn didn’t convey the serious feeling of the rest of the comic. But I still think it’s amazing.

Myyyy good lord, I cannot begin to explain how similar this is to a situation I was in…except we were 15…and I was the one being awkwardly kissed…and she already had a boyfriend…who was my best friend…Lol, good times
Gummy May 1, 2011, 1:13 AM EST.
Why lucy? You love him dont be like that
Meow May 1, 2011, 3:44 AM EST.
of course his shadow is breaking.. he just offered up a part of his heart out.. and he gets that answer (which personally makes sense considering the age of them and stuff.. though yeah.. , if you were to confess something like that.. and get seriously rejected wouldnt you, feel like everything just broke??
Lupus May 1, 2011, 4:48 AM EST.
I think no one can really blame luzy because no one really understands her and thats for real.
when you got so antisocial and also phobia, maybe even authism is building up for all what happened (you cant see inside her mind) then it all just gets worse and worse. PPL dont took her problems serious and on the other hand she wasnt also willing to talk about it and kept it inside which is going to build up something like a psychical-time-bomb.
maybe its not that bad for lucy but in general, ppl that are affected by this problems and get ignored just build up even more mind-problems.
and thats not just some theory, its the real thing that have happened, not to me but to a person that i had to be there for but didnt realize it (or better to say, ignored the problems to not have to think about them, because its too heartbreaking what happened at all).
and because of this we probably can never be the same, i lost my chance for her trust in me and she tries to get the mindproblems solved for that she can infact live again. And after this may happen and we reunit in 2 month the big question is if we can build up kinda something like the same we had befor.
thats of course also a reason why i am addicted in this comic because i see a part of my or better to say my “other good half’s” problems in it and from a different view its sometimes easier to see what you’ve done wrong.
Guys, just get in mind that fears and antisocial behaviour are much more awful and soul-killing to the person that have them, than you may thought or were ready to believe.
oh and Taeshi, did you actually see that bcb is now on #3 of those webcomiclist? its pretty cool i think, and i wanted also to vote multiple times but later they told me that they got my ip and wont let me vote that much in one minute
and again sorry for bad grammar if some parts may dont make sense
anonymus May 1, 2011, 4:57 AM EST.
@Anonymus Lucy doesn’t build up autism, thats not how it works and it seems like you’re using that word a bit loosely. And what phobia are you talking about, phobia = fear, but what fear?
@Bob Don’t bash this comic’s amazing art if you can’t do any better. Go read something else
Sandvich May 1, 2011, 8:45 AM EST.
@Sandvich: the part under the first sentence is just in general, its just kinda the same big topic of being misunderstanded and not beeing able to talk to ppl.
well i probably had to look up all i wrote again be4 posting it, to make sure it wont be misunderstanding. so sorry for this crappy build up text.
the autism is just an example i took from my own experience, which kinda have some parallels to the comic. you know sometimes ppl just talk **** which doesnt have anything to do with the topic so i wouldnt be mad if it looks actually like that for what i wrote. i am just at the moment too much personally touched by the whole sittuation in comic and my own life. sorry for puking my soul out.
and a little bit more back to the topic, i hope in the next few pages david makes some pretty funny comment when the flashbacks end, i just love his face in last panel here http://www.bittersweetcandybowl.com/c63/p37.html
anonymus May 1, 2011, 9:51 AM EST.
Lucys phobia is her fear of water
just so you know
luv the comic! hate the haters! read the comments!
fishy May 1, 2011, 10:58 AM EST.
Well back then lucy was not that type of girl but I bet you she hates the outcome. That also enplanes why Mike was not so enthusiastic about the moment when she confessed. Nun the less Lucy still loves Mike.
Lugia May 1, 2011, 12:42 PM EST.
@anonymus Dude, you’re so right. About al that. And now, it might be too late for anyone to help Lucy snap out of it. And, even if there is a chance, i don’t think she’d be ready for it.
RyuPuma May 1, 2011, 12:57 PM EST.
VERY POOR MIKE
Beatigul black gold May 1, 2011, 2:10 PM EST.
I know how that feels… I was just older than that
StarSturdy May 1, 2011, 2:41 PM EST.
maybe they’ll just have make-up sex or something….
Magic May 1, 2011, 2:51 PM EST.
@fishy im sure anonymus wasn’t referring to her fear of water, but her fear relevant to this portion of the comic. like fear of getting close to others. I just wanted to see if anonymus knew what they were talking about
But its been explained, so no point talking bout it now ^^
Sandvich May 1, 2011, 3:12 PM EST.
I’m 12 and I know I’m not ready for a relationship. I got kinda mad when some girl told me I should have already had at least 5 boyfriend’s. Shows you how most kids my age think of love.
Also, for those giving up on MikeXLucy,
“Do Mike and Lucy end up together?
It’s on the about page. >_>
CatBat May 1, 2011, 3:46 PM EST.
@sandvich: i meant also her fear of water but, just because we havnt been told of other fear for her, dosnt mean that there are no others. I know ppl with about 10 different Phobias at once and believe me, if they dont tell you about it and you arnt all the time with them, you wouldnt even notice it. (and no i dont expect that taeshi will add now other phobias for lucy but you just never know how much you know of this imaginary world we all are staring at )
The only different is that Lucy kinda talks now also a bit about her feelings, (for example first time to that stranger on the Holiday, i dont remember his name right now ) ppl that i know try to avoid that and keep silent more, even infront of their family.
@CatBad: i just looked at it earlyer today, like be4 6 hours or more (i am in europe so now its 22:00 here) and when i read it, there was a no and i was disappointed somehow but this changes my mood for the week to happyness ^^
anonymus May 1, 2011, 4:00 PM EST.
Welcome to the list of people that fall for the FAQ trick so easily. I want you to go back and refresh the page multiple times and tell me it doesn’t change
Sandvich May 1, 2011, 4:14 PM EST.
I think CatBat was being sarcastic by making people go to the page so they quite asking on the comment section…maybe?
Neoresolution May 1, 2011, 4:24 PM EST.
@Sandvich: ah i see, well i am still happy because it means that nothing is decided, and i to be honest, i think its just as funny as the whole “garbage day” thing , i am pretty sure Taeshi has an Awsomo-3000 that helps her to get this ideas (if you dont watch south park, you dont need to ask what i mean ^^ )
anonymus May 1, 2011, 4:26 PM EST.
The mom really looks like she’s going to say “someone gonna get a hurta real bad!” once they get in the car. I cannot shake the thought of that.

Lucy May 7, 2011, 8:40 PM EST.
Famous last words of that ship. Too bad. If only Lucy had come to her senses sooner. Oh well.
Spectre39 May 22, 2011, 6:59 AM EST.
Poor Lucy. You know how things went after this. She started liking Mike, then he went back to Sandy, and left Lucy miserable. You reap what you sow, alright.
Don’t forget about Paulo, Lucy. I hope she has a flashback where she thinks about that one night where he comforted her. Maybe then she’ll come to her sense. Like he said in that note at the very beginning of this chapter, you still have him. You always will.
NintendoSegaSonyGuy May 24, 2011, 5:39 PM EST.
Your summation needs work. What did she sow? She’s got a list of emotional issues in addition to how young she was. Oh, and Sandy stole her best friend from her for a year once before. Childish opinions. Hoheh~
Hoheh May 25, 2011, 12:13 AM EST.
SHE’S TWELVE???!! yeah, okay, Taeshi, okay.

Guys, Lucy was only twelve years old, and like Taeshi said, who is ready to have a relationship at the age of twelve?
HappyCat August 14, 2011, 9:38 PM EST.
Listen, the reason, Lucy turned down him, is that she might be afraid what happen in elementary will happen again. History always reapeats it’s self.
I like food August 29, 2011, 7:05 AM EST.
I wanna bet in the future Mike’ll remember it! I wonder if it will appen if not…fanfiction.net!

You blew your chance, Lucy dear.
I blew a bunch of mine too, though. And I was way older than twelve.
Fruvous September 12, 2011, 11:11 PM EST.
My old friend was ready for a relationship at 4.
h September 26, 2011, 5:53 AM EST.
At twelve I already… I mean… almost got into a relationship.
Then I screwed up.
Then I got older.
I still sucked.
Harris012 October 31, 2011, 11:58 PM EST.
Aww, Lucy if you only knew you would also like him back. and forever!!! (maybe)

I love that she can shut down a relationship with Mike but when he says no to her she freaks out. Makes sense.
Meep May 25, 2012, 6:37 PM EST.
LUCY!! YOU RUINED EVERYTHING!!!! AND YOU WONDER WHY HE WON’T LOVE YOU!!!
Umbreon July 22, 2012, 8:55 PM EST.
“Who is ready for a relationship at 12?” you say? What about Mike and Sandy in 3rd grade?
mr. plow September 9, 2012, 6:42 PM EST.
Jesus Christ……I was in a relationship at freaking 10 god dammit!
Cloud Chaser the Brony October 20, 2012, 8:13 PM EST.
I would be for MikexLucy if their present feelings towards each other were like THIS. But, nope… so despite showing that he got rejected, i still really dislike him in the present

You should have taken her while you could have…. *sad head shake* now things are in shambles….

Why does Mike’s Mom kinda looks like Sue? With the hairstyle, I mean.
Luna April 26, 2013, 6:33 AM EST.
I’m just saying, but Lucy rejected Mike in a way before he did so i cant reallysympathize with hersas much as most can.
