Why? Why couldn’t it be the pizza man who called? I doubt that it takes that long to say “I’m late.” Lucy looks… worried? Or does she guess it right away? I can’t really decide based on the facial expressions.
A few hours ago I drove for the first time. I started in an empty parking lot behind a community centre, learning the basics (gears, parking, feel for the steering etc.) After half an hour, my dad asks me if I wanted to drive home. I decided, what the heck? Then those kids started running out of the community centre and across the parking lot I nearly had a heart attack. At the end of the day, I didn’t hurt anyone, but feel rather less confident of the usefulness of my skills in GTA. I hope this doesn’t get banned for “using the comments as a chat room” because it does lead to something; have you (Taeshi+Suitcase) thought about the characters getting their driving licenses? It looks like Paulo will be the first to have a chance, and I can’t think of a better contestant for despair (in whichever form it takes)! From what I understand, you have an ending made up, and just fill things up along the way, so I would like to implant this idea into your heads so that it may manifest itself by the time you start thinking of the next chapter, after the drama with Mike and Lucy and Sue’s play and all. (Inception )

DAVID. it better not be you :C
or maybe that’s better than other options >>
Symphonic November 14, 2011, 12:00 AM EST.
Mike seems… very shocked? Why?
Actually not so much shocked as very mortified? Did Sandy die or break up with him? Or maybe David just showed him some more pictures. >.>
Seriously, so much cliffhanger here! Well at least he didn’t immediately rage out on Lucy… yet.
Minty Lime Green November 14, 2011, 12:00 AM EST.
Yes this is it!!!! Break Up!!!!

Ooooh, what happened? Did Sandy break up with him I wonder?
MiwAuturu November 14, 2011, 12:00 AM EST.
Yay! New comic! I’ve never been even close to first before… anyway, it’d be funny if it’s nudie pics from Sandy. I would crack up if that was it.

Here it is, the break-up text
Richthofen November 14, 2011, 12:01 AM EST.
Oh ****, either someone died, Sandy is breaking up with him, or she’s coming to town and he’s trying to absorb his excitement. IDK whats gonna come next GAHHHH! oh this is going to eat me up. It looks amazing though, the section with his eyes going back and forth and Lucy’s concern. Thank you Taeshi!
P.S. if it were nude pics his eyes would be getting huge and the blush would increase. His pupils got smaller and the blush went away, that’s panic or disbelief. Plus his eyes would be centered, the way they are positioned he just finished reading something, not looking at some nude photo.
Also, @The Swimmer is right, learning to drive could get very interesting and they are the right age for it.
Deuce Moose November 14, 2011, 12:01 AM EST.
Please don’t ruin the mood……. or a nude pic…….
Seikyuu November 14, 2011, 12:02 AM EST.

Probably Sandy saying that she’s coming to Roseville to visit him.

Alright what’s up? Why does Mike look so surprised ?
Trey November 14, 2011, 12:03 AM EST.
WHOA. I spy with my two big eyes a big fat teaser. And why is he blushing?
Bearcoon November 14, 2011, 12:03 AM EST.
Was it Sandy breaking up with him possibly…? That would be quite interesting, for Mike would probably get really sad. Then there’d be a whole bunch of comments saying that he deserved it when really he didn’t. I’d hate to see him be very sad.
LightTribeWarrior November 14, 2011, 12:03 AM EST.
Shock.. and he doesn’t look very happy. This can’t be good.. for Mike, it seems. So curious as to what it says..
Mewzia November 14, 2011, 12:03 AM EST.
ah dammit now gotta wait till Wednesday and I think maybe something happened to Sandy rather than a break up or someone sent something long and stupid to mike. but oh wow I just don’t know it’s a long text maybe Sandy is coming to visit or could it be a break up >< suuuuuuuuuuuuu
Lucy November 14, 2011, 12:03 AM EST.
ACK!!! Cliffhangerrr! I can only wonder… And wait…
GoBeyond November 14, 2011, 12:03 AM EST.
Uh oh…. possible break up text? Nah.. Sandy’s probably in trouble or something.
Day~Day November 14, 2011, 12:03 AM EST.
coughmightbenudephotoscough, but in all seriousness, he does look somewhat… flustered i guess…. might be a breakup message (if only things could be that simple >.>) but honestly i doubt it…
ihonestlycan'tthinkofone November 14, 2011, 12:03 AM EST.
That is just pure evil, Taeshi! Now we’ll have to wait…
Oh, God. I think I already know what it’s about, even though it seems so unfair, when Lucy and Mike are finally getting along again!
So close, so close.
Lily November 14, 2011, 12:03 AM EST.
OH MY LORD i cant wait to wendsday now i think im gonna explode
kagura November 14, 2011, 12:03 AM EST.
Oh no Mike
i feel bad saying I do hope it’s a break up text. Because if he still has a thing for Lucy, and he knows she likes him, they could wound up together and he’ll be happy again think about it like that

Anyone else speculate that it’s just David being a pervert, though?
Drakesm November 14, 2011, 12:04 AM EST.
you guys… are heartless…. -eats sock and gives kudos- ;^;
but… is he supposed to be blushing,, or freaking out? >.<; I really can’t tell
-shames self to sleep-
is this going to be one of those painful mysteries where we never find out what the message contained? @~@
annon November 14, 2011, 12:04 AM EST.
My guess is that Sandy is coming to visit soon if not right now ans Lucy is there so he does not know what to do. I would really feel bad for Mike if it was a break up
Barrier-Break November 14, 2011, 12:05 AM EST.
That expression of his can’t be good. But we’ll see.
starfighter105 November 14, 2011, 12:05 AM EST.
Okay, if it’s Sandy she either broke up with him or is coming to town….
that’s my two guesses…
Oh the suspense!

Lionist November 14, 2011, 12:05 AM EST.
Three things i think is happening. 1. Mike got dumped. 2. Sandy got in an accident. or 3. Paulo sent another disturbing picture.
DemonKat November 14, 2011, 12:05 AM EST.
Mike has a look of absolute disbelief. Meaning that this is either REALLY good, or REALLY bad. whatever it is, it’s got Mike stunned.
Qsandas November 14, 2011, 12:05 AM EST.
I really want sandy to break up with him. Nothing against her its just i really want mike and lucy together. But i just hope its not too rough of a text if its true
Quadratic November 14, 2011, 12:05 AM EST.
whoot suicide text!!! or someone already died, only that would make mike make that type of holyf*ck face…. unless i’m way off, in that case BRING IT ON WEDNESDAY
chellby November 14, 2011, 12:05 AM EST.
oh no…. a long text…who could it be?
Mike is panicking and cant hear Lucy… probably going to be the first guess. I dont know how i feel about that.
Lucy looks so worried through out the panel
what if … something bad had happened to one of Mike’s family member? (just thought of that)
Mike why did you read it? OH WHY
Lily November 14, 2011, 12:05 AM EST.
On a random note, I like Lucy’s apendage looking thing. It’s probably just me, but her left arm just plain looks funny in the second to last panel. Noodle Arm!

Oh, I can’t decide, which is better: David sending another picture of his d1ck or Sandy breaking up with Mike?It’s probably Sandy, but what could it be? A breakup? Some model photos? She coming to town?

Sparkfur November 14, 2011, 12:08 AM EST.
I’m calling awkwardly timed sexting.
Fulgrim November 14, 2011, 12:09 AM EST.
My guess? She’s sexting him and Mike is totally embarassed and about to need some shorts.
DiamondMx November 14, 2011, 12:09 AM EST.
this wont end well. no matter what the subject of the text is, it will not end well for Lucy and Mike.
Scott Pilgrim November 14, 2011, 12:10 AM EST.
I’m going to laugh my *** off if my prediction of Sandy dumping Mike actually came true. Cmon Wednesday… please come quickly…
Here’s a thought: What if his shocked face is due to Sandy texting him from the hospital after some sort of accident? I still am all for the breakup route though.
The Observer November 14, 2011, 12:10 AM EST.
I thought taeshi said that there isn’t any problems in the relationship…
Zany November 14, 2011, 12:10 AM EST.
and yes, it does give the appearance of sexting x.x; but I mean come on, MIKE? x3 I don’t buy it ;3
also Mike’s been busy playing video games with Lucy, no way she would have initiated it so out of the blue with such a long message x3; and Sandy never sends long texts from the mild preview we got a couple comics back,
so I vote David~ they’d totally make us angst for that P:
or I guess it could be a breakup, but surely it can’t end that fast and simple?

Ice Sheild November 14, 2011, 12:11 AM EST.
The dialogue makes me think its Sandy only because he says “You know…” like Lucy should know who it would be by now. So maybe something major happened on her end…or maybe shes decided to move back! And it has shocked Mike! But his face looks like he’s more unhappy with the news than shocked so hmm i’ll just stick with the gut feeling it’s nothing good
Tickled November 14, 2011, 12:11 AM EST.
I am going to guess that sandy is coming to visit.
Madsmurf93 November 14, 2011, 12:11 AM EST.
STOP THE ENDLESS TOYING OF OUR EMOTIONS! Whew, good page as always taeshi, way to leave us in despair waiting for wendsday. I wonder if someone was hit by a semi, or some other motorized vehicle. Tragic. Or he just found out that he could save 15% or more on his car insurance by switching to gieco.

Desterga November 14, 2011, 12:12 AM EST.
Hmm. So, thoughts on that text:
If Sandy is comming to town, I guess the first message wouldn’t be short and would be more of the kind “Hey, I’m comming then and then, will you be around?”
And if something bad happened, I guess she would have called.
Breaking up texts sent from people who are not total ********* can be expected to be long and apologetic, explaining why it came to this and how sorry they are etc etc, so my bet is on the breakup

Crystal November 14, 2011, 12:15 AM EST.
What? What happen? Did he loose a bet? Did Paulo e-mail a dirty jpeg again? Or did his speak of a million dollars actually come true and he’s rich!? Whatever it is it can be either very good or very bad….I go for the latter. >=)

Could this be. . ? Could it be what I hope for. .?
Could it be Sandy. .? Sandy. . with a BREAK-UP TEXT?
But Sandy,A BREAK-UP TEXT?
Why not call?
A text is just. .just. .WRONG.
Well if it isnt.
What could it be?
I love Mikes’ expressions in this page. .

Ice Sheild November 14, 2011, 12:20 AM EST.
Sandy sent an erotic picture
volgrand1 November 14, 2011, 12:20 AM EST.
In all seriousness, the plot of this chapter would make far more chance if Sandy said something good. However, I have to agree with Chewy for the sake of comedy. xD
Boringamus November 14, 2011, 12:20 AM EST.
Oh man. If this is the break-up, Mike is just gonna be so devastated.
NBbowler November 14, 2011, 12:21 AM EST.
@ waldo, i doubt she’d be prego, unless she was cheating on him, but mind you, she has a model job, so she couldn’t get prego too to easily i believe, but i could be wrong, but i have a feeling mike’s gonna be having a worse fallout than metro 2033’s nuclear winter :I and that’s saying something. lucky him and lucy are on good terms, just in case what we speculate comes to fruition.
inumaru November 14, 2011, 12:22 AM EST.
nah… its either a nude pic, but probably not cause he is reading something, so most likely sandy is either dumping him or she is dead
Thespianut November 14, 2011, 12:22 AM EST.
It’s Sandy sending him a long adoring message of how she’s waiting outside the front of his house. He’s shocked because Lucy is with him and to have his Girlfriend walk in on him hanging out with another girl alone in his room wouldn’t look good(no matter what they were doing). Or something like that.
Dino November 14, 2011, 12:22 AM EST.
She’s coming over. Man, I saw that coming two pages ago.
V November 14, 2011, 12:22 AM EST.
Oh God. Oh God, oh God, oh God.
A bajillion things popped into my head.
Sandy broke up with him, Sandy has been injured, Sandy is coming to visit…all Sandy-related. ‘Cause you know Sandy is probably the main incoming and outgoing message source.
God (Taeshi) only knows…
Oh well. Time to wait for Weds.

kimbcoo November 14, 2011, 12:25 AM EST.
Well he said “you know…” and judging on Lucy’s dismal reaction can only means it is Sandy, but I’m curious as to what the text itself says. It is December, perhaps she’s on her way over now for X-mas. *bounces with exuberant anticipation.*
AnonymousMonkey November 14, 2011, 12:25 AM EST.

I kinda get the feeling either Sandy is gonna be in a accident or she’s breaking up with him…I kind of go for the first one…TILL WEDNESDAY!
Inumaru12 November 14, 2011, 12:31 AM EST.
Mike looks mortified. I doubt he’d be mortified at pics of Sandy.
It has to be bad news concerning Sandy. Probably not a breakup. Injury, illness, leaving the country permanently; something life-altering.
But who passes along news like that with a text? Email I could understand, but life-altering news usually demands a call.
revengineer November 14, 2011, 12:32 AM EST.
ahem…. dear mike this is Sandy’s mum i just thought i would let you know that my daughter has unfortunately attempted to commit suicide in failed attempts to see you. she is currently in the hospital and would very much like to see you. in the looks of how it is the holiday season i guess this gives you time to come and see her and i would be willing to pay for your trip…. yadda yadda yadda….
it’s this or a break up text, or sandy is coming to visit, or something else that is very juicy in drama and will ruin this moment we all were enjoying so.
either all the above or what we are all wishing for, some stupid chain letter sent by david or paulo though i think we all know that this isn’t something to make us laugh our heads off but rather rip them off in utter complete rage and suspense. in other words… taeshi…. you done good …. with these cliff hangers i mean.
on another note… I would like to thank any veterans out there…. i know it isn’t veterans day but still… i feel it is important to say this… i think it would be interesting if one of our characters decides to serve in the military and takes an ROP class…. welp. peace out till wednesday yo. ‘,:l
lemme sleep plz November 14, 2011, 12:32 AM EST.
Mike, it’s Sandy. I’m breaking up with you, so you can go back to Lucy now.
Random Internet Loser November 14, 2011, 12:35 AM EST.
I was not looking forward to Wednesday (because I have to go to the dentist that day) but darnnit now I can’t wait for it because of the anticipation of wanting to know what happens next in BCB.
I BET SHE’S BREAKING UP WITH HIM.

Baeleox November 14, 2011, 12:36 AM EST.
I cant quite tell if its mortification, like david sending nude pics, or if its embaressment, like sandy sending nude pics, or despair, like sandy sending him break up pics…
But then theres that sliver of a mouth that you can see, most likely the break up…?
Esty November 14, 2011, 12:37 AM EST.

TurtleMan November 14, 2011, 12:44 AM EST.
Taeshi, you certainly have a way of drowning us in suspense in the late chapters of this series, thus making the 2 day wait for the next page feel like an eternity. I guess that demonstrates your superb story telling. o:

Sarge November 14, 2011, 12:46 AM EST.
I think @Dino has the right idea …. Sandy being right outside the house/door to his room ….. could present such an effect. Though the reaction to it being sandy texting was just a lot less dramatic than i expected .
 i love how his pupils get smaller and smaller as he reads the message[/edit]
Juerujin November 14, 2011, 12:47 AM EST.
Oh Taeshi, you’re never THAT nice TT-TT probably be like five or six pages before you reveal wtfish is in that text…and then, it’ll probably be with Sandy in the hospital, rather than breaking up with Mike which would leave him with Lucy T-T I want to see the rest of the pages /now/. *BAWWW*
SonicdaShapeshifter November 14, 2011, 12:51 AM EST.
Sexting? His shifty eyes would definitely affirm that suspicion. However, I always thought of their romance as a pure and adorable one, not a steamy and sexy one. Oh well back to the internets.

Maverik November 14, 2011, 12:54 AM EST.
So, either Sandy’s right outside his house, or she just broke up with him… oh boy
hibber25 November 14, 2011, 12:54 AM EST.
Actually, I’ve completely changed my mind. There aren’t too many long text messages from a significant other that END in bad news. If it was something like illness of injury or some other event-type thing, she’d have mentioned it right off. It’s only with the emotional, personal matters that the issue gets danced around.
Even if it’s not a breakup, it has to be something relationship-altering. Either Mike had to accept it and deal, or try to fight it. My feeling is that given the sacrifices he’s made for this relationship, he will fight it. Lucy may even help him.

norly i thinks sandy died… or is in the hospital
Aries November 14, 2011, 12:55 AM EST.
Uh oh, it’s the face of “You’ve used 100% of your data plan this month!” 3G can suck it.
Shiloh November 14, 2011, 12:58 AM EST.
Aries November 14, 2011, 12:59 AM EST.
I KNEW IT! Sandy broke up with him.
Actually, I guessed this as soon as the phone rang. I was like, “OMG Its Sandy and she’s gonna break up with him.”
Okay, so it might NOT be Sandy, and she might NOT be breaking up with Mike, but a girl can dream, right?
TUXEH November 14, 2011, 1:00 AM EST.
please be something so pointless and nobody dies
sandy no dying
please be something that we can all laugh at and say that oh hey she got us on the loop and that was pretty sly of her. ugh darn
now im all worried
Hell In my Clouds November 14, 2011, 1:00 AM EST.
Doctor, note time of death.
Awbbie November 14, 2011, 1:05 AM EST.
1. Sandy is coming for a visit or moved back.
2. Sandy broke up with him. (Yyyyaaay) lolz. Jk
3. :I better not be Paulo or David sending dirty pictures or txt whatever talk gets me lmfao
Leen619 November 14, 2011, 1:06 AM EST.
Lucy, quick, get a tissue box, **** is about to go down.
Bambalooza November 14, 2011, 1:07 AM EST.
Milly November 14, 2011, 1:07 AM EST.
Oh boy, why do I get the feeling she ( <- Sandy) Left Mike…Oooh…This is ether getting me worried or getting me excited….not sure what to say.
Mostly worried, cause I do like Mike (even thought he became a jerk) But now that Lucy there next to him…lets hope there a certain outcome to appear.
Aoriki November 14, 2011, 1:07 AM EST.
Mike looks alot more shocked than scared so maybe she visiting or something….or moving abroad….
Lunas November 14, 2011, 1:08 AM EST.
I don’t think Mike’s expression would be like that if Sandy was coming to visit or move back. Something bad has obviously happened. Either that or it’s David.
Minty Lime Green November 14, 2011, 1:08 AM EST.
OH MY GOD!
I COULD SAVE 15% ON MY CAR INSURANCE BY SWITCHING TO GEICO!
Seriously though, that can’t be good…
HyperBallistic November 14, 2011, 1:09 AM EST.
You forgot 4.
Sandy got in an accident
Sandvich November 14, 2011, 1:09 AM EST.
I got a bad feeling about this…!
ScrabMaster November 14, 2011, 1:10 AM EST.
It’s David and he’s pregnant
TheySeeMeTrolling November 14, 2011, 1:10 AM EST.
you know, I never really thought about it until now. It could be a good surprise, hes blushing in the last panel
Sandvich November 14, 2011, 1:11 AM EST.
I’m gonna back the ‘Sandy left Mike’ group, with an additional ‘Sandy met someone new’ because otherwise he’d have a chance to try and get her back, no matter her reason for ending it.
spidren November 14, 2011, 1:13 AM EST.
Is it bad that at seeing Mikes face in the last panel made me start laughing at him?
Like ive read in a few comments,its probably not a breakup, because this is one of the main plotlines, and it would make the comic end too soon.
I would personally enjoy that alot though -u- /sadist
If it is a breakup I dont think that its likely he’d go straight back to lucy like alot of people seem to think lol, I myself have been in a long distance relationship and even if it is just howit is it doesnt mean you dont care for the person, even if there is another you’re attracted too at that,
I like this page BD
Stuffnthat November 14, 2011, 1:14 AM EST.
Looks like the break up text
Tiger November 14, 2011, 1:16 AM EST.
In before it’s actually Sandy visiting or Mike being able to visit.
Bunk November 14, 2011, 1:17 AM EST.
I’m throwing my beanie hat in the “It’s not a breakup” ring. It could be such an extremely pleasant surprise that he has no reaction other than shock. Anything’s possible at this point.
I mean, it could just be Paulo’s dick pix.
SushiJaguar November 14, 2011, 1:19 AM EST.
We all hope it’s David.
But in the end, it’s obviously YOU KNOW WHO.
Lion November 14, 2011, 1:20 AM EST.
PLACE YOUR BETS FOLKS, STEP ON UP AND GET A CUT OF THE ACTION!!! DID SANDY FIND HER MISTER RIGHT IN THE ARMS OF ANOTHER!?!? DID SOMEONE SEND MIKE A DIRTY PIC OF HER OR VARIOUS OTHER FEMALE CAST MEMBERS (if it’s of Mia, I will change this from a betting booth to a torch and pitch fork pavilion) OR MIKE BEING AN OVERLY DRAMATIC WIMP AS PER HIS NEW USUAL!?!? Step on up folks before you lose your chance!!
Option 1: 1/.0000001 (Really we all saw it coming/ prayed it would)
Option 2: 1/100 (I swear if it’s Mia, I’ll burn down a village)
Option 3: 1/2 meh, good odds.

Oh ****! Sandy just broke up with him! LOL!!! Now, he’s gonna be down, and he and Lucy are gonna make their own: Another path” chapter.
Ragnarocker November 14, 2011, 1:24 AM EST.
Cause its heartbreak warfare…
dustin November 14, 2011, 1:27 AM EST.
The Sandy storyline isn’t going to be wrapped up THAT easily, guys. Plus since a few pages ago Suitcase mentioned an imminent breakup, I am incredibly skeptical. I think Sandy is moving even farther away, possibly to Europe. Mike will take out his frustration on Lucy, thus adding another year full of drama for us. Ta dah!
The Observer November 14, 2011, 1:28 AM EST.
I don’t think it’s Sandy breaking up with him, either. BUT WHO KNOWS. Hopefully we’ll find out by Wednesday.
squish November 14, 2011, 1:29 AM EST.
LE GASP! If Sandy just broke up with Mike, I’ma have an orgazm. RIGHT HERE, RIGHT NOW. Well…not right now…cause I don’t know yet…BUT ON THE NEXT PAGE, I’LL HAVE AN ORGAZM, RIGHT THERE, RIGHT THEN! Then Lucy better get some moar respect from Mike >:C Or I will slice his nostril.
Nasu November 14, 2011, 1:29 AM EST.
Why are they constantly blushing?
Seriously. In every panel.
Now that I look back, it’s been a trend, but for some reason it’s REALLY noticeable on this page.
Blazen ICantRememberPIN November 14, 2011, 1:34 AM EST.
the first thing on my mind is that she sent some ‘pics’….
could also be that shes coming to visit him, but id ont think she dumped him
Gingin November 14, 2011, 1:35 AM EST.
guess i was wrong about the triangle, maby not…..she could be hurt or yea she dumped him or….she fell for another guy for stupid reason… lastly….shes a fregin idiot.
Love yours truly the demon king
P.S. Why does his blush go away for 2 parts? was the text really bad or just something wonderful?
P.s.s in the *reading the text part* for some reason he is looking straight at the phone not left to right….could it be a picture?
DEMONX November 14, 2011, 1:35 AM EST.
Well, in all of this page and recent events, there are hints here or there about what’s happening. For one, it isn’t Paulo. When Lucy asked who it was, Mike said “You know…”
Naturally, he was being nice to her and considering her feelings (For once) and didn’t just come out and say it was Sandy. On top of that, we’ve seen what their usual banter back and fourth is like. “Hi” “Love u” this that or the other. Nothing extremely long. And Sandy’s life was only getting more and more complicated. However, I see this as a few possibilities, some more likely than others. Either she was in some kind of accident and someone is using her phone to inform Mike (Or she is herself), she is there to surprise him, is planning on going there and he’s in shock or, this is the most likely and predictable option, that her life is too complicated right now and she needs a break from relationships.
I would consider the option of her informing him that she needs to end her phone service, if she were anything but rich. Money is no issue, so that’s certainly not it. Truthfully, I’m thinking it’s a break up letter… Which is sad, considering the adorable ‘Reached Books Sold’ image up there. Poor Mike… I mean, he’s been an ******* to Lucy, but all in all, Sandy has made him happy and, in the end, isn’t that what Lucy wants now? I think she’s taking Augustus’ advice on that topic, hence why she’s being so innocently friendly.
Eternal One November 14, 2011, 1:35 AM EST.
20 internets says it’s just his mom telling him she found his stash of adult magazines or something.
Pick Yer Poison November 14, 2011, 1:36 AM EST.
“Dear Mishael. I am coming to visit this weekend.”
Simple. That’s all it is.
Mike’s just worried because he has to clean his room now.
Blur November 14, 2011, 1:36 AM EST.
Like many other’s I agree that it’s unlikely to be a breakup; what is clear is that it’s Sandy, and she is the barer of bad news…or really shocking news. I mean his face didn’t change till the very end there, so it could be something that’s just a total and absolute shock like “arranged marriage” or “I’m moving back” or as someone guessed “moving somewhere even farther. Oh, or her parents could be divorcing, or somebody died!
Wolfe November 14, 2011, 1:39 AM EST.
THIS. SOLVES. NOSING. Now we must wait -ANOTHER- day because of this fillurrr?! VERA YOU F’NUCKIN’ TROLL. Get it yet? nnHA HA SUSPENSE IS FUNNY nnOtherwise very well layed out for so many panels.

Fangirl November 14, 2011, 1:44 AM EST.
I’m so glad I waited to see this comic on my PS3 :o Now I won’t be itching all day tomorrow wondering what was gonna happen. It’s pretty obvious now
Extendo Mags November 14, 2011, 1:45 AM EST.
Wow haven’t commented lately….. Anyways, I’m very curious of who sent the text and what it’s about. I’d like to guess that Sandy dumped him or something!
Roxas November 14, 2011, 1:46 AM EST.
I don’t know what’s about to happen, but whatever it is, it’s going to be so intense that it’ll take over twenty pages to explain!
Poor Mike. I’m just hoping that his insanity will still be intact when it’s all over.
headsortails November 14, 2011, 1:47 AM EST.
Um. Uh oh?
Why do I have a really bad feeling about this? >_>
Probably Mike’s face. That’s probably it. That transition through all those facial expressions - chilling. Oh gawd if this is going where I think it might be going, I’m gonna lose my mind. Please let it be anything but a break-up text. … Does that make me a shipper?
Or am I just putting all my lost faith in my failed long-distance relationship into that of a fictional character?
also does that make me a total idiot
FIGHT MIKE. FIGHT FOR LOVE. JUSTIFY ME YOU ********.
MykelTDT November 14, 2011, 1:48 AM EST.
If Sandy is going to visit, then he’d be spazzing with joy. Remember when he heard he could get a ticket to Richter?… I dont think she’s visiting.
Dragnite November 14, 2011, 1:50 AM EST.
Then the text thereafter consists of only
I foresee lots of heads exploding.
(Please please please please let this be the text i’ve been hoping for though.)
Harleyy November 14, 2011, 1:52 AM EST.
8 PM, time to break Mike’s heart.
Arkairyn November 14, 2011, 1:52 AM EST.
Oh figgy puddin’. I also wanted to ask a question. Taeshi: Did you individually draw each of Mikes faces in the parallel panels? I noticed because his nose was slightly different in each one.
Extendo Mags November 14, 2011, 1:54 AM EST.
Mike….Is it a nude pic of Sandy?
Jay Tea November 14, 2011, 1:54 AM EST.
LOL i think i know what it is, and it isn’t what half the people reading probably think it is. Well played Taeshi.

Dubfox November 14, 2011, 1:55 AM EST.
a long text from sandy? or maybe it could be something worse…maybe something happened and she ends up in the hospital and her parents feel it’s necessary to send a message to one of her friends…what a twist!….fail

LAN-DO November 14, 2011, 1:57 AM EST.
I think Sandy broke the fourth wall and copy-pasted all the Mike Hate comments on this comic and sent them to him :l
And probably the LucyxMike comments too.
Dragnite November 14, 2011, 1:57 AM EST.
5 bucks sandy just left him! whos game?
kuro kitsune November 14, 2011, 1:59 AM EST.
A long text? Maybe Sandy just broke up with him! omg, you can tell it by his face that someting bad is going on
Sonny:) November 14, 2011, 2:01 AM EST.
Omgomgomgomgomg. BREAK UP.
cray November 14, 2011, 2:02 AM EST.
I’m kinda unsure whether he’s really surprised because of a bad or a good thing. I don’t think they’re breaking up though OR ARE THEY huehuehue…
[this is a bad comment]
TehLulzinator November 14, 2011, 2:05 AM EST.
pls pls pls pls BREAK UP! !!!
Jonny_M November 14, 2011, 2:06 AM EST.
Why is Mike stunned?
A. Sandy dumping Mike
B. Sandy moving back to Roseville
C. Sandy’s mom texting mike that Sandy died?
D. Sandy sending a nude pic of herself…
Name:. who wants to know? November 14, 2011, 2:07 AM EST.
arebelongtous November 14, 2011, 2:10 AM EST.
Wr3h November 14, 2011, 2:15 AM EST.
It’s either A or Secret Option E. Cuz Mike would be spazzing off the walls if Sandy was moving anywhere near him, and he would probably say something like “oh nevermind its her parents” to Lucy if they used her phone, before he got to the surprising part that is… Finally, probably isn’t D cuz pictures dont usually come with words… I’m guessing on that one, I’ve never been texted on an IPhone or sexted for that matter.
Dragnite November 14, 2011, 2:15 AM EST.
It’s probably not a break up (any other reason to lose Sandy).
It’s probably one of those things that makes most of you trip balls over seemingly obvious fore-sights.
Ike November 14, 2011, 2:16 AM EST.
i think it would be A since mike look rather like worried
Lucas November 14, 2011, 2:16 AM EST.
Something tells me Sandy’s gonna come visit him.
It can’t be a nude photo… And I have this feeling in the pit of my stomach that says she isn’t breaking up with him… Idunno.
Although I do hope it’s a breakup… As good a couple Sandy and Mike make.
SplatterWolf November 14, 2011, 2:16 AM EST.
Just about everyone is expecting it to be Sandy, but It’d be an awesome twist if it wasn’t. Total manipulation of the reader’s minds. Make us thinks it’s Sandy and then it’s not. I love it when someone does that.
RayleneQuinn November 14, 2011, 2:17 AM EST.
He obviously recieved a “Have you had an accident that wasn’t your fault?” text.
That face is shocked that he could earn up to £5000 in compensation. And so could you!
All he has to do is text YES to 123456.
CharmingRice November 14, 2011, 2:24 AM EST.
Maybe ho just got an extremely long troll text from David and Paulo?
Joakim November 14, 2011, 2:26 AM EST.
@RayleneQuinn Why wouldn’t it be Sandy? Lucy asks “Who’s that?”, and then Mike answers with “Oh, you know…”. I can’t think of anyone else that Mike would be texting with regularly.
TehLulzinator November 14, 2011, 2:28 AM EST.
a long text would usually imply something serious… and the look on his face doesn’t really strike me as the “absorbing good news” expression, mostly an “oh ****…” expression. Im no expert, and this comic does have a way of pointing in one direction and then smacking you across the back of the head with a frying pan later…. but i think its a break up text (please!)
Noble_6 November 14, 2011, 2:28 AM EST.
Everyone is expecting a break-up text, but I think also everyone is thinking too hard about this and thinking of other possibilities. Taeshi could be using reverse psychology to make you think it’s not a break-up, but actually is… so I’m sticking with the break-up idea. HURRY UP, LUCYxMIKE
TLF November 14, 2011, 2:34 AM EST.
Can’t quite tell if it’s, “oh god she wants to brake up” or “oh god she’s on her way to my house!” I’d say the better of the two, ‘cause why blush if your gf is braking up with you?
Though I don’t like Mike, (And really don’t like the thought of him with Lucy), I really like his relationship with Sandy. Being in a long distent relationship myself, I like seeing a comic with a character who is going through the same thing.
Blue November 14, 2011, 2:35 AM EST.
I know I’m expecting a break up test, but then again, I REALLY want that to happen. In my opinion, Mike and Sandy belong together. That’s just my opinion because I can relate to the friendship and hardships shared between those two! >.

List of Possible but Highly Unlikely Scenarios for Wednesdays Page: 1. Nude pics of david, abbey or katie (also sue) 2. marriage proposal from sandy 3. Breaking news alert concerning the infestation of zombies 4. Germany invades poland…again (and last but not least-) 5. Mike is a sleeper agent for russia and the text he receives activates him for a mission involving the cross-breeding of dogs and cats. Thanks for watching!
2Cents November 14, 2011, 2:48 AM EST.
Hmm Santa’s coming to town! (Cause Sandy- Clasue get it? She’s coming to-? Oh nvm…)
But yeah, it either will be some horrible **** happened to someone we know, maybe someone’s family. But it’s probably from Sandy from Mike’s “you know”. But I don’t think it’s a break up text. She wouldn’t do it over text, and we wouldn’t get the satisfaction yet. No I think she’s coming, from Mike’s blushy marks although his face looks mega-freaked.
Hurr November 14, 2011, 2:49 AM EST.

Ah, cliffhanger at it’s best. I don’t suppose this is going to end well if the look on Mike’s face is anything to judge by.

@ Sandvich: that too!!! :S *gulps*
Leen619 November 14, 2011, 3:19 AM EST.
Well she broke up with him its obivious
SmokeSkid November 14, 2011, 3:21 AM EST.
He don’t look happy, it can’t be Sandy coming to town! Does no one rememer his reaction to his invitation to fly to Richter back around the Vacation arc??
Well, he could be making that face if Sandy texted him saying “I’m right up front of your house.” But then again thats not a very long text! And Sandy strikes me as someone who would tell Mike ahead of time.
Dragnite November 14, 2011, 3:22 AM EST.
UH OH. It’s the break-up text. That’s rough, buddy. One of my bfs did that to me :1

Ah the suspense is killing me is sandy breaking up with him or is she coming to see him finally
Curo November 14, 2011, 3:41 AM EST.
Or she wants to be with him, or comes to visit him… or moves close to live!
Thats why the blush and shocked face, next happy grin all over the face.

bull363 November 14, 2011, 4:04 AM EST.
I’d only be happy with Lucy and Mike getting together if Sandy broke up with Mike, however, it seems to easy to just have all the drama end like that. If that really what the text is, I bet Lucy and Mike get closer but then Sandy wants Mike back?
Kite November 14, 2011, 4:05 AM EST.
I think we all know what’s happening.
I’ve also been dumped via text before. Ladies, we menfolk deserve enough respect for you to break up with us in person. “Dear John” letters aren’t fun.
Adawg November 14, 2011, 4:07 AM EST.
honestly, i thought it was a naked pic by sandy but second glance and seeing his eyes move and than go into shock, it isn’t a picture, it is worded…It is most likely Sandy coming to see him real soon where than his “love” obsession for her pushes Lucy away again. but there is were the character developmental and them solving things will come in….or explode in there face
reader November 14, 2011, 4:07 AM EST.
I think its safe to say its bad news. Look at his eyes shifting. Then look at the panel where Lucy says : “Mike?”. Then the last one saying “Mike..?”, his eyes are not visible giving a feeling of emptiness. I say it’s bad.
CookieMonster November 14, 2011, 4:12 AM EST.
Mike… Miiiike? Why the terrified face? C’MON! I CAN’T UNTIL WEDNESDAAAAAY…
EatMyMug November 14, 2011, 4:15 AM EST.
Hope its a break up text from Sandy cuz I want to see Mike and Lucy to be together cuz i think they make a perfect couple ☻

Y’know… probably something along those lines.
Mythril November 14, 2011, 4:28 AM EST.
there are some options:
1. “hey maishul, i miss you, bla bla…. long text…. i am just naked and ready for you, come here!”
2. “hey maishul, i miss you, bla bla…. long text…. i am going to visit you right now!!!”
3. “hey maishul, i miss you, bla bla…. long text…. but i cant stand the distance anymore, i met a nice guy, his name is paulo…”
4. “hey maishul, i miss you, bla bla…. long text…. i am so thankfully that promised me, not to be with lucy anymore”
5. “hey maishul, i miss you, bla bla…. long text…. someone died, i need you right now”
6. “hey maishul, i miss you, bla bla…. long text…. i got a job in your town”
there are 1000 possibilities but i would freak out if i just got one correct
anonymus November 14, 2011, 4:38 AM EST.
What’s this? What is happening?
Two days left to finding out exactly what; it’s anybody’s guess right now.
The suspense is KILLING ME
Harris012 November 14, 2011, 4:46 AM EST.
Let’s see if we can’t eliminate it down a bit. A note before that, “bad” and “good” are considered so relative to Mike.
Bad news concerning injury or fatal things would be instant reaction. He read for a while before the reaction.
Whatever it is… It’s big. Clearly not a small bit of news.
Bad news concerning the relationship would be at LEAST frown worthy as it worked up to the peak of “I’m sorry, but this isn’t working out.”
A picture is not read. It is stared at.
Paulo and David do not seem the type to send long messages, and chain messages have a certain style that most recognize almost instantly. This realization usually causes one to groan and exclaim something along the lines of “I hate these stupid things!” Most intelligent people do not read them so seriously. And what could possibly be at the end of one of those that could get so serious a reaction out of someone?
Now those are supported by solid reasoning. These are less so, more my impressions depending on those truths.
I think it’s Sandy. That’s just a guess, I can’t really back that up, but c’mon. Taedrie was all like “C’mon! You all were expecting this!” last page, and now she’s hush hush.
The news of ” … so in conclusion I’ll be over for a day or two” would be pretty shocking… but I don’t think this whole blank shocked to the core stare would happen for just anything. When he saw Sandy on the news in Hot Persuit, he hesitated only long enough to realize exactly how close she was before he dashed off to find her. I think he’d be immediately excited, he’d at least have a face-spanning grin by now.
I think it’s something more drastic. Something more life-changing. I think she’s going to be moving somewhere close if not right there in town.
But that’s just an idea I have. It could be a lot of other things.

Sandy’s breaking up with him cause she realizes she’s apparantly in the way of 85% of the reader fanbase’s romantic preferences and feels bad, lol.
Eh, she can do better anyways. I’m still kinda in the Lucy/Anyone but Mike camp though, especially if Mike does exactly what he did years later and rebounds right to Lucy like he just hadn’t been treating her like a dust bunny.
Of course the text doesn’t have to be a breakup message…could just be her saying “Blah blah blah … and so, thats why I’m doing my next shoot in my birthday suit! ” That would terrify any slightly decent boyfriend.
Shadai November 14, 2011, 5:16 AM EST.
I think it’s Sandy. Maybe she’s coming..? I doubt it is a break-up message, though.
But it could be something we could hardly expect. Maybe it’s not Sandy.
DeSpErAtE567 November 14, 2011, 5:16 AM EST.
either she broke up with him or she is visiting or something bad happened to her
omnifarious November 14, 2011, 5:20 AM EST.
I am willing to bet it is Sandy. The content of the text message is beyond my knowledge. Anyone help me here? I am so exited because I’m getting the BCB book this weekend.
REALLY REALLY BIGUSERNAME November 14, 2011, 5:25 AM EST.
Mike must be reading an iPad to be scanning with his eyes like that.
EtherSaga November 14, 2011, 5:33 AM EST.
Wow Mike looks mortified. It could be anything, but I’m hoping so so much that Sandy just broke up with him.
Rachel November 14, 2011, 5:35 AM EST.
She’s breaking up with him via text? Not even going to call him? Wow, that’s cold.
Lunacy November 14, 2011, 5:40 AM EST.
Mike does NOT look too happy! Methinks that either Sandy broke up with him, or it’s a Sext and he doesn’t want Lucy to see.
JimmyP424 November 14, 2011, 5:42 AM EST.
uh oh long text an the expression…i know what happen…im not SPOILING IT!!!
DarkFox November 14, 2011, 5:55 AM EST.
This either calls for dramatic music or ‘giggity’.

ftu November 14, 2011, 6:06 AM EST.
okay, I just want to say to everyone that thinks it’s NOT in Sandy’s character to break up with Mike over the phone……who are you kidding??? just because its a cowardly thing to do doesn’t mean she wouldn’t. did you all forget what Daisy said about Sandy in previous chapters? also, Sandy lives far away, she could break up with Mike in a text because she may not want to here him beg her to stay together (not that I’m condoning this). I also feel that if Sandy’s mom was forcing the breakup that Sandy would not want to speak to Mike because it would be too painful.
I also want to say that anyone that thinks that Lucy would be all over Mike so soon after he broke up with Sandy may need to think twice about that. I really think that Lucy would be offended if he did that. She wanted to be his first choice, not his safety net.
I’m really hoping that this is NOT a breakup text because that would be so heartless, but then again I hope it IS because I love the drama.
maybe Sandy went to some event with a hot guy and she sent a pic to Mike not thinking it would hurt him or maybe she wants to see other ppl, only Wednesday will tell
thanks Tae for another wonderful page.
sen November 14, 2011, 6:08 AM EST.
Sandy’s dead! I’m truly concerned here! She’s either dead or seriously injured! Oh no, oh no, oh no!!!
Missme November 14, 2011, 6:09 AM EST.
New page, new cliffhanger. I love it. Hope the text isn’t something that’s going to hurt Mikey… But then again, if it doesn’t hurt Mike, it’ll probably hurt Lucy. Not saying that Lucy is only satisfied when Mike is hurt. It’s just how it is.
LikexMucy November 14, 2011, 6:17 AM EST.
either sandy is about to show up or it’s a break up text. i think it’s the first, but you can never really tell with bcb. lol
Mr.Dude November 14, 2011, 6:19 AM EST.

>SHE DOESN’T WEAR ANY CLOTHES

you know, a few chapters ago they planned on having sandy come to visit and she said she will try. for all you know she may be telling mike that she is on her way.
GAWD stop being so dramatic you guys!
Bunny November 14, 2011, 6:58 AM EST.
oh dear i hope it’s not sandy breaking up with him hopefully it’s a text of her saying she’s coming over
Anima November 14, 2011, 6:59 AM EST.
Either Sandy is breaking up with him or she’s coming to visit/moving back.
causticAntilogy November 14, 2011, 7:03 AM EST.
Considering he’s blushing, I’ma toss my money into this one….I bet Sandy wants him to come see her

That is either a sexy sext from sandy or she’s breaking up with him.
Bye-bye sandy! November 14, 2011, 7:25 AM EST.
Whichever way this goes, it’s going bad. If Mike is so shocked about Sandy either
- not coming for Christmas
- breaking up
he’s gonna snap on Lucy. Baad.
Tudor November 14, 2011, 7:28 AM EST.
could this be the moment we’ve all been waiting for?
Star Adder November 14, 2011, 7:30 AM EST.
Maybe David sent him some “pictures” of Sandy. That would explan the blush AND the horrified eyes.
Argondr November 14, 2011, 7:31 AM EST.
I’m guessing it may be bad news from Sandy or maybe it is something good that Taeshi wants us to believe is bad by how Mikie reacts like Sandy is finally coming to visit . It IS pretty hard to tell with such a great writer like Taeshi
CTS4Kouhei November 14, 2011, 7:33 AM EST.
I’m going to take a completely random wild guess and say that Sandy met a cute underwear model and Mike’s getting the boot.
I reeeeeally hope that a later comic panel shows Mike’s phone with the text on it.
Tickle Monster November 14, 2011, 7:34 AM EST.
It’d be a bit anticlimactic if Sandy died abruptly this way. Part of me thinks that could be the case regardless, but the other part of me thinks it’s something else altogether. Some people suggested she’s coming to visit, and that seems a likely thing, especially since they were supposed to be planning a Christmas thing together. HOWEVER… things are going to go wrong on the visit. If that’s what it is, anyway.
Lumi November 14, 2011, 7:36 AM EST.
Can anyone even notice his eyes going back and forth? That could only mean one thing, he’s reading[words]. Perhapes Sandy is breaking up with him? Sandy’s mom may be making her do that.
@Lumi, you just made me think of something. Sandy’s mom may be texting Mike that Sandy died in a car accident or something.
Mewkat November 14, 2011, 7:39 AM EST.
Crap, Lucy just went through the trouble of cheering Mike up for this to happen…
Avory November 14, 2011, 7:41 AM EST.
Oh god this is really tough. Here’s my guess, he’s not looking back and forth at Lucy and is actually reading the text, and Sandy either broke up with him or died. I think it’s gonna be she died though, Sandy really didn’t seem like she’ll break up with him. It’s amazing h0w you can make EVERY page a cliffhanger Taeshi =S
Flashbomb7 November 14, 2011, 7:46 AM EST.
I hope it’s a text from Sandy telling Mike she’s coming to visit, that would cause a LOT of drama. Even though I don’t really like Sandy (SHOW UP ALREADY! ) I hope she’s not dead
I eagerly wait the next page, Taeshi and hope the text will be shown
Purpledede November 14, 2011, 7:52 AM EST.
IT’S A NUDE PICTURE!! Nah it’s probably just some text saying something either really good or really bad.
Grubey November 14, 2011, 7:53 AM EST.
What’s it saaaaay? The madness!!! It’s too much suspense!
Seriously, this stuff’s getting good.
Senor Pena November 14, 2011, 7:57 AM EST.
I can’t quite tell if it’s a sort of pleasant shock or unnerving foreboding shock that has taken place on Mike’s face. The constricted cartoony pupils and squiggly sulky eyebrows would typically correspond with a negative reception, that of worry and gloom. But this is offset by the blush on his cheeks. If I tell a friend that his wife has died or his house has burnt down, I may expect a kind of shock with the look of him, but I’d be shocked myself if I see him blushing.
I think the message bears an awful news. But a part in me doubts that it pertains to an imminent break up with Sandy. A break up would just seem uncharacteristic of her at this point. Sandy still seems to me, rightly or wrongly, the embodiment of the very pleasant and ideal girlfriend, atleast to Mike.
Mess November 14, 2011, 7:58 AM EST.
It’s not Santa coming to town, thats for sure…
Haha, Sandy has horrible timing but I agree with The Swimmer, wouldn’t they be getting their licenses soon? Cant wait to see Daid get his
ProfessorMarshmallow November 14, 2011, 8:08 AM EST.
Either sandy has offered herself and her body to perform carnal activities and is explicitly detailing which positions of the cat-a-sutra she wants to perform, or she’s just broken up with maishul.
Gabe November 14, 2011, 8:22 AM EST.
At first when I saw this I was thinking breakup, but something tells me it’s not that simple.
Maybe Sandy was kidnapped by dem dere guys from chapter 12 that FF cat are so chummy with and now they’re pressuring Mike for a ransom? aaaaAAAA
Kibondo November 14, 2011, 8:24 AM EST.
I predict the obvious, she may pay him a visit.

I can tell it is bad news that he just got … and lucy can tell as well and she is got a concerned look on her face she clearly can tell it is bad news … now the question is what was the news … I can’t wait to find out

Merry Christmas Mike.
Looks like you might be getting to see your girl after all eh?
If the stick up his *** until now has only been from having called Sandy, how big is the one going to be when she visits and then leaves?
Balfred November 14, 2011, 8:41 AM EST.
Since Mike’s reaction is kinda ambiguous, I take it the message must prolly be of an equivocal nature as well. Either good or bad, or both!
From this angle, Sandy deciding to pay Mike a visit, or something equivalent, now seems all the more plausible with some good grounds. It necessitates the long text and can cause the mixed apprehension in Mike.
Otherwise, I still don’t know why Mike would blush if he found out Sandy is dead, or at a similar morbid situation.
Mess November 14, 2011, 8:45 AM EST.
Okay, I think… I think that Sandy’s moving somewhere farther away, she might not be breaking up with him, but she could be. THAS MAH CALL.
Clare November 14, 2011, 8:47 AM EST.
that face says it all…….. I DON’T WANT TO WAIT TILL WEDNESDAY TO FIGURE OUT WHAT SANDY SAID!!! and I severely hope Lucy doesn’t freak out… if she doesn’t freak out, Mike won’t react to it and make matters worse and then she can run off and make out with Augy tomorrow?!?!!? I like this idea C=
kikimmicoa November 14, 2011, 8:48 AM EST.
Maybe it’s Sandy trying to tell Mike she got pregnant when they had phone sex.
Cyandog182 November 14, 2011, 8:54 AM EST.
What is in that text?! I hope they will break up. Ir maybe Sandy is in the hospital coz of an accident. Or maybe they will meet and Mike doesnt feel anything for Sandy… So intriguing… but I do really hope it is a break up message… I want Lucy and Mike to be in a relationship. They look better together. ;(
Aubi November 14, 2011, 8:56 AM EST.
IT’S FROM PUBLISHERS CLEARING HOUSE!
Huh? November 14, 2011, 9:01 AM EST.
I know what is in the text…
Dominik November 14, 2011, 9:09 AM EST.
Hmm maybe sandy found someone else, maybe her best platonic friend and she cant do the long distance with mike anymore… or could be that she will be visiting… either way someone is going to be sad lol
davidafterdrama November 14, 2011, 9:09 AM EST.
It’s such a cruel world…
Actually, I am reasonably certain (from his expression) that this is bad news regarding Sandy in some way. There would be no reason for anything other than her to be brought up in the comic. Then again, there are many news that could be named as bad. Sandy in an accident, Sandy ill, Sandy going very far away (somewhat implausible, considering how far away from each other they already are), or the message I think a large amount of people here have been looking forward to: “I am breaking up with you.” Admittedly, though, I believe a good chunk of the latter would want it to be “I have been abducted by Michael and Lucy shippers and they are about to cut off all my fingers with a rusty hacksaw and put my living head on a pike with hooks on please help I am going to die horribly help please if nobody saves me soon IAAARRRRRHaaaahhh…” instead. Oh dear, the audacious blood-lust. ^_^
But which is it?
Oh, or it might be news so good that he is dumbfounded. Then again, he seems far more horrified, so I am still betting on something that affects their relationship negatively.
By the way, am I allowed to mention that I placed my comment here at eleven past fifteen o’clock in the afternoon?
ILB November 14, 2011, 9:11 AM EST.
Clearly Sandy was horribly disfigured in a random sky-diving monkey knife fight mishap and shan’t be modeling any more. Pics attached.
Or it’s a very long text of David’s *****.

Shephard November 14, 2011, 9:22 AM EST.
Is that despair I see in Mike’s eyes? Poor thing. I’m not really a huge fan of Sandy, so I’m sort of among those who are hoping for a “txt msg brkup”. Anything that will make Mike less of a jerk. On another note, I’m VERY glad to see that he and Lucy are getting along again. Ah video games, the many doors they open. Lucy’s face in the third panel…at first I thought she had mandibles. My bad. Great job Taeshi.
LyokoTitan November 14, 2011, 9:26 AM EST.
It’s not bad news. Look at the way he’s blushing. Usually being upset or horrified would cause the color to drain from his face not add to it. He’s surprised, not upset.

Only one thing can make a dudes’ face do that… PREGNANCY!
adekii November 14, 2011, 9:50 AM EST.
Well, I’m pretty sure it is Sandy because of how Mike answers, “you know..” to Lucy asking who is it. The face Mike is making does not look like the kind of face someone who just got good news makes so I don’t think she is saying she is coming to visit. My guess is that Sandy either wants to take a break with Mike or is having some kind of break down from trying to do too much.
Jon November 14, 2011, 9:51 AM EST.
well, i guess sandy decided to break up with him… oh well, time to move on, boy.
just kill her for doing it, that’s the best way to get through it.
now it’s time for mike and lucy to get back together, everyone!
also, it might just be me… but i think veronica has a blushing fetish, since the characters can’t stop blushing even when their hearts have been smashed into dust and they are suffering from extreme despair.
Thanatos November 14, 2011, 9:53 AM EST.
Congrats on reaching your book goal! ^_^
Tejue November 14, 2011, 9:57 AM EST.
My guess is that Mike is blushing because Sandy’s asking if he has time to chat.
Yeah, uh, Lucy… I think you should go now. You know, while you’re still in one piece.
Remember what his sister said.

I don’t wanna jump to any conclusions, but…….. I SMELL A BREAK UP!!
Oh no. And via text? How incredibly lame.
Amaris November 14, 2011, 10:29 AM EST.
Either Sandy sent him a break via text i.e. they were never together based on a picture of her and her new guy that she’s excited about OR
someone in the family is gone.
Paulo and David are fluxing with him again.

Dubbelthor November 14, 2011, 10:34 AM EST.
Everyone’s guessing a breakup, but knowing Taeshi, it very well could be something else - a death, perhaps? Or maybe Sandy’s asking to meet him and he’s shocked at getting to see her properly for the first time in EVER!
withoutbelief November 14, 2011, 10:35 AM EST.
Looks like it might be a text message breakup
Luckless November 14, 2011, 10:36 AM EST.
I bet Sandy is coming and will probably be there in 15 minutes originally wanting to surprise Mike but she couldn’t stand to keep in the surprise any longer and went ahead and told him. Or she sent him a very sexy picture. Either way, Lucy isn’t gonna be happy.
KairaWolf November 14, 2011, 10:36 AM EST.
Mike, just forget about Sandy. :c
Although it’s a point of high tension, I’m hoping Sandy’s breaking up with Mike. He and Lucy make a much better couple, and Lucy deserves Mike over anything for what she’s been through.
OmicronPlus November 14, 2011, 10:37 AM EST.
@ mike: hi mishell i’m pregnant. lol. He either got dumped or she’s is comming to visit. Knowing the auther taeshi will keep us in suspense

but reading other posts there could be a sight possibility that it could be something else. Taeshilh is cleaver like that.

Sexting or break-up?
Jade November 14, 2011, 10:43 AM EST.
I think a break-up is one of the things it really couldn’t be myself. You know, because of it being given away as a fake spoiler before.
Although then again, that could be a double bluff.
AOJ - DeciA November 14, 2011, 10:44 AM EST.
Sexting, or David telling him something naaassss~tyyyy! Or perhaps his Amazon order was cancelled!
Amber November 14, 2011, 10:47 AM EST.
Sexting, break-up, Sandy died, or its Alejandro.
RohanSpartan November 14, 2011, 10:48 AM EST.
As an alternate idea Sandy could have come out of the closet.
I laughed while typing this by the way.

Lolly November 14, 2011, 11:00 AM EST.
Hmmm. I’m going to say that Sandy met some magical man during her many “buisness” trips and cheated on Mike.
That or she’s breaking up with him, sexting him, or Paulo has sent him another gross picture.
[Or Sandy’s dead. As much as I hate to sound mean, that would make my week if Sandy got killed off.]
OH! Or maybe she’s making a suprise visit to town!
[And then she’ll get killed off like Liam’s girlfriend! Hit by a bus… ]
Jai Foxhat November 14, 2011, 11:01 AM EST.
awww poor mike.
well guy’s prepare ur self for some drama.
but still poor mike
thathurts,good? November 14, 2011, 11:03 AM EST.
It’s either she broke up with him…..or she’s coming back to town. And gah…death…quit talking about that all your sick fantasy’s of her dieing is rather repulsive.
I know if it does happen, oh well, but still, theirs no need to scream, “she’s going to die~ She’s going to die~ Oh yay she’s going to die and Mike will get back with Lucy~” That’s a terrible to think of. If our Author here makes it so…well…hurray for you guys.
If it’s a break up, well, he’s crushed, if she’s back to town, what will happen? Sexting, bah. It all depends on how are author here writes her story. And yes, your all right, another beating is due, but you don’t have to be all giddy about it.
Zach November 14, 2011, 11:08 AM EST.
sandy’s at the door. the lenght of the text was a trick.
boh... November 14, 2011, 11:10 AM EST.
MarioMan99 November 14, 2011, 11:21 AM EST.
The theory that it’s Sandy breaking up with Mike seems to be the general concensus here, but I don’t know. Tae might be after trying to fool us all! :3

I dont think he’d have that face if she was back in town. I think his face would be lit up with joy rather than this look of panic on him.
Im gonna say a break up or shes admitting to cheating on him or something to that extent.
Or that they were planning on seeing each other soon, after being away from one another for so long, and shes not able to come now.

DAISY! HELP ME!
Holly November 14, 2011, 11:38 AM EST.
I bet it’s Sandy telling him she has it for girls and that Mike wasn’t gay enough.
Or you know it could be something else. Probably something else. Yah…
Fauxpas November 14, 2011, 11:43 AM EST.
Current possible options (my guess anyway):
1. Sandy is coming to town.
2. Sandy broke up with him.
3. Sandy was in an accident (a la Kuina from One Piece).
I’d say from most to least probable: 1, 3, 2
Stryyder November 14, 2011, 11:52 AM EST.
The suspense is eating me alive, oh god.
I really hope it’s nothing too serious.
General Lollipop November 14, 2011, 12:04 PM EST.
waaa i will get mad while waiting….. Wednesday? i won’t wait… i cant wait …
hmm the accident thing could be possible…
Foxy November 14, 2011, 12:05 PM EST.
nudy pics from Sandy.
lolz, nah. It might just be something as simple as it just being Sandy, We’ll see.
tony November 14, 2011, 12:06 PM EST.
it must be sandy, i think we all assume that by now
but, whaaaaaaaat does it say?
mi bet is that sandy is coming to town
GoldenXylophone November 14, 2011, 12:10 PM EST.
Sandy died :o
SolemnRain November 14, 2011, 12:17 PM EST.
this comic is safe for work, no sandy nudes!
Momoa November 14, 2011, 12:28 PM EST.
Maybe Sandy is coming to visit and, unbeknownst to Mike, is planning on breaking up with him while she’s there. Right now though all he knows is that she’s coming out to see him. Sandy definitely doesn’t seem like the kind of person who would breakup via text. She might want to see Mike to make him happy before hurting him, if a breakup IS in the works (not likely), as she does seem kinda detached from the “Drama Rules of Engagement” and the impact that would really have on him.
Or she’s coming to visit and everything will be great and Lucy will cry.
P.S. Still holding out 100% for Mike X Lucy!
Kroth November 14, 2011, 12:31 PM EST.
I think it’s Augustus trying to **** up whats being happening here with Lucy and Mike. Probably as a plot twist or summit Or Daisy is stalking Lucy around and is tying to force her away from Mike.
I dunno. Just stabbing wildly into the dark
Explosms ;) November 14, 2011, 12:33 PM EST.
SolemnRain, that is NOT a solemn face. You are deceptive!
SgtRed November 14, 2011, 12:33 PM EST.
OH GOD! CLIFFHANGERS ARE EVIL!
His face could mean so many things. Did Sandy get in an accident? Is she coming to town? Or is it a really long text ending in a breakup?
I want to know! I really really want to know!
I know this much, one way or another, the next page is probably going to end badly for someone
Trev November 14, 2011, 12:36 PM EST.
Oh god. This is so sandy breaking up with him. It’s not like anyone else could send him a text that could illict such a face…
I just hope lucy doesn’t go all ‘glee now we can be together’ and ruin all this friend-ness
Annabelle November 14, 2011, 12:37 PM EST.
or maybe that sandy text him that she is on his door house and she is coming to see him but if she saw lucy then she’ll think that something happen and she’ll think that why is lucy in mikes room see maybe this is it or maybe not hehe not sure but i tried hehe
PauloXLucy November 14, 2011, 12:37 PM EST.
she’s probably coming to visit, I doubt she’d dump him over phone, even if Mike’s being an ***, she’s still seems nice from what I know
Moviefreek November 14, 2011, 12:41 PM EST.
ohmygodohmygodohmygodohmygodohmygod! IS SANDY FINALLY DEAD (figuratively if not literally)?
Yootah November 14, 2011, 12:43 PM EST.
@SolemnRain hehe it sounded funny when you said that sandy is dead and put davids face hehe
PauloXLucy November 14, 2011, 12:45 PM EST.
Dang it Sandy! you broke Mike!
…is what I would say if any cliffhanger in this comic ever went according to my first conclusion about it.
Sunbeam November 14, 2011, 12:46 PM EST.
He’s reading the text and then he gets to the end and clearly there was something shocking at the end. So I really think its a break up… probably her jumping around the topic about how hard it has been to cope, and how she really wanted him there but it was just not possible and how she is uncertain about her future with him and then BAM! she says she thinks she needs to move on even tho she really did love him. Mike is stunned and speechless and blanked out as his heart just got hit by a semi.
Lucy’s looking kinda worried at first for herself, if it was Sandy… and then for Mike, if it was Sandy… as she clearly thinks that it is sandy’s text judging by her expression in panel 3 when she asked who it was and her sideway glance in panel 4… and then for mike to have such a crushingly blank expression in the last 3 panels clearly makes her worried for him.
Taeshi said it would be an angsty rollercoaster… so we’ll just have to see how long this drags out for… altho if its a breakup, there will be plenty of drama of Mike trying to come to terms with it. losing sleep and desire to do anything… probably like fail his first school assignment ever or Lucy basically doing the whole assignment while he mopes around lost in thought.
And hopefully in the next chapter… MIKExLUCY hells yeah.
edit- O yeah, i reckon mike’s gonna run out of the room/house to call her and they have a long angsty chat with lucy looking from the window… and then he comes back in and has a big cry… and Lucy tries to figure out what she can do to help console him.
Delta November 14, 2011, 12:46 PM EST.
woooow never seen someone hate her this much hehehe
PauloXLucy November 14, 2011, 12:49 PM EST.
@Delta: Oh yeah, assuming of course that Mike’s really quite that pathetic…which I really doubt.
Hearken back to, oh, Mike and Lucy’s entire relationship? Mike didn’t really start losing sleep or missing work over anything Lucy did. Besides, breakups are penny-ante, I say she’s dead.
SushiJaguar November 14, 2011, 12:56 PM EST.
Welp, anything is possible at this point!
Mint-sama November 14, 2011, 1:01 PM EST.
He’d look way more concerned if it was an accident. Nope - that face says heartbreak all over it. Sorry, Mike - long distance relationships are hard! =(
JC November 14, 2011, 1:13 PM EST.
Sandy’s either breaking up with him or there’s some sort of emergency with her or she’s coming to visit. Those are my theories.
Snorlax November 14, 2011, 1:25 PM EST.
It’s more like “blah blah blah blah blah and I’m gonna visit you next weeked”.
Lolllama November 14, 2011, 1:27 PM EST.
I doubt Sandy would break up with Mike via TEXT. I bet she’s coming over.
Paw November 14, 2011, 1:29 PM EST.
Oh my, have we finally reached the point in the story where mike and Lucy have hurt each other in almost mirrored manners and are each morally unable to become a couple because of their shame in the way they have acted? Nah, we will have to wait for one more page because Mike’s surprise might be positive surprise. Maybe Sandy is visiting and warning him first this time.
Breakups are penny candy but every other thing in this story is even less importaint. 95% of the story has been about cat people’s inability to stop dancing around the idea that they just MIGHT like eachother. Tae seems to do more with less quite a bit.

I don’t know he looks kinda shocked i think it’s either a breakup text or something else >insert your imagination here

either sandy was hurt, or it’s over. I don’t know which is worse, their both dark options.

This is gonna end….well, this is gonna be a end to a beginning, that’s for certain. Here’s a toast to everyone living through this (emotionally), hopefully.
Welgaea November 14, 2011, 2:01 PM EST.
That’s…not a good face that Mike has on right now…
Judging from his reaction to reading the text (props on the subtle changes in his expressions, there, Taeshi!) whatever he read can NOT be good.
Chocothunda November 14, 2011, 2:04 PM EST.
Oh SNAP! could this be the end of Sandy and Mike and the beginning of Mike and Lucy?……Im kinda hoping so lol but we will just have to wait and see
Drama November 14, 2011, 2:05 PM EST.
It’s not over, Sandy really likes Mike! I bet she’s gonna come over and Mike will start acting like a jerk to Lucy again, just when they made friends again!! And it took a LOT of angst-y-ness for just that! Although it drives me insane sometimes, I really love this comic and I think that it’s time Lucy got some happiness, so don’t let Mike go all jerk-y again, please Taeshi?
bones November 14, 2011, 2:06 PM EST.
ohh noo i sence somthing horrbel on wensday
lol i think i know whats happening:it has to be sandy texting becouse on pannel three sandy askes who is it..and mike say You know..its a long text.meaning that who els but sandy and the phone is buzzing so much becouse she is sennding alot of texts.also on the 4 pannel lucys lookes sad and says “oh” meaning shes not happy becouse she dosent like sandy.
then you see mike going from normal to terrifyed or shocked whick concludes that the test is about sandy
injured or dead:i think no becouse if she is injured or dead wouldent her parent call hes house and not text him saying that your girlfirend is dean or injured
Breakup:possibely,but it dosent sound sandy-like if you ask me
comming over:maybe,bur he lookes more teriifyed then happy
enxhi November 14, 2011, 2:16 PM EST.
i got a bad feeling about this
midnight fox November 14, 2011, 2:19 PM EST.
If Sandy is dead or broken up, there must be a panel where one of Mike’s friends happens upon Mike, hanging out with the stereotypical emo kids, in stereotypical emo clothing, possibly smoking, even if it is just a vote incentive.
bla November 14, 2011, 2:25 PM EST.
I think it’s bad news honestly. That’s what Mike’$ face is telling me. I can give some creedence to people who think it might be good news (for him anyway) like Sandy coming to visit, I just personally think Mike’s face is one of horrid shock. I want to dismiss any ideas that it’s any kind of picture. For one Mike explicitly says “it’s a long text”. Two in those eye panels, they’re very clearly going back and forth like he’s reading something. Not a picture.
Hubris November 14, 2011, 2:25 PM EST.
NOT good i think i know what happen if i am right.
Than very BAD!(i hope im wrong )
OSU_Heavy November 14, 2011, 2:26 PM EST.
If it turns out to be a text informing Mike of Carter’s untimely demise, I’m going to bawl my eyes out.

This is the mile away from where I see Mike and Sandy break up. And the part where Lucy is the only person to console him. Calling it

2: Sandy breaks up with Mike.
3: Sandy dies >:D .. just kiddin— it could happen tho..
or some other thing happened to make mike pause and speechless oh famous Taeshi what could it be?

Maishul.. I’m sorry, but I have fallen in love with someone else~ I request an imminent break-up, but I want to let you know I still love you.. I hope you find somebody better than I ever was.. Somebody close to you, and not a million miles away. I love you, Maishul. Have a great life without me, I’m sorry.
Maishul, I died. The End.
I just gender changed, duuuude. How’s it goin’? Slaang, daawg.
Maishul, I’m sorry. We can’t do this anymore. My heart aches longingly for you.. but it’s just too much. We must move on. I’m sorry.

Hmm… Now i gotta guess what happens next…
Well judging by that suprized look on Mike’s face I suppose that
A monkey riding on an elephant stole an icecream sunday
from a rabid jack-o-lantern which is rich and is hiring Sandy to
go and hunt down the monkey therefore sending her on a
journey that will pay her 16,900 dollars if accomplished!!!
…Probably not, though. I’ll just have to wait.
A Visitor November 14, 2011, 3:43 PM EST.

phoenix16 November 14, 2011, 3:46 PM EST.
Seeing how long-distance relationships have gone for me, Sandy probably is dating somebody else by now. :< Poor Maishul.
Ooorrrr, she’s right outside his bedroom door and he’s about to throw Lucy through the window. Keep it up! I don’t wanna wait until Wensday! :3
Krys the Wytch November 14, 2011, 3:48 PM EST.
The tenth and eleventh panel explain everything, let me break it down for those of you who think he’s been broken up with. He went from blushing for the better part of the page, to not blushing in the tenth panel, to looking embarrassed and blushing in the eleventh panel again! It can really only mean one thing, Sandy’s coming to visit
KeeweeBanana November 14, 2011, 3:51 PM EST.
I don’t know Keewee, that look in his eyes near the end looks pretty devastated to me. Almost as if his whole world’s crashing down around him.
As far as I can see it, one of two things probably happened. Either she wrote a rather long winded I’m breaking up with you letter that she did her best to let him down softly or Sandy sent Mike a text about how she got into an accident after the usual lover talk.
Rain November 14, 2011, 3:58 PM EST.
OHGODWTFISHAPPENED THIS DRAMA IS KILLING MEEEEEEEEEEE

Keewee Banana I think it’s a break up but that means Team Lucy is back in business
Peter November 14, 2011, 4:01 PM EST.
If it really is Sandy and a break up message (Or maybe she gave a long explanation on why she wants to have his babies that both thrills him and freaks him out), the world has a way of working with Mike… Sandy comes in, Lucy moves out, Lucy move sin Sandy moves out.
So what happens if they both leave? Does the world explode?
Jax November 14, 2011, 4:02 PM EST.
Even though Mike is blushing he was blushing before he picked up the Phone so yeah. Its break up time “maybe we would be better off just being friends?”

DreamsofCrows November 14, 2011, 4:14 PM EST.
He’s still blushing at the end mind you, he’s just stunned. So if it is from Sandy, I would say there’s more than a chance she’s coming to visit. I really hope so, it ruins it that the only time we ever see her is in flashbacks. Besides, I want to see the guys’ reactions. Again, he’s blushing almost the whole time, so I doubt that it could be anyone/anything else.
Tcj333 November 14, 2011, 4:14 PM EST.
Matthew November 14, 2011, 4:15 PM EST.
Mike is frowning, and his eye brows are all messed up. So my guess is that sandy is breaking up with him

Ai November 14, 2011, 4:59 PM EST.
Next page Lucy will read the text message over his shoulder. Probably.
Can’t wait til Wednesday! Hopefully we’ll get some more insight on Sandy’s character with this chapter. Do Sandy’s parents know about Mike? Could be a parental conflict or something.
Justmyopinion November 14, 2011, 5:00 PM EST.
Gonna guess it’s either one of his parents or Sandy. Then again, if it was from his parents and he’s reacting like that, it probably wouldn’t be in the form of a long text.
Toffee November 14, 2011, 5:01 PM EST.
Oh god. I’m already reading ahead like it’s a novel! Sandy ends it (for some reason), Mike’s CRUSHED (i would be..) and doesn’t know what to do, and what do you know? Lucy is RIGHT there, and I’m sure she’s more than ready to welcome him back into her life. Under an unstable emotional state, one thing leads to another, and…oh dear.
NOW I understand what you meant about the drama level in this chapter.
Michael S. November 14, 2011, 5:02 PM EST.
I bet it’s Sandy toting him that it’s over between them!

I know -I- would freak out.
Lurkah November 14, 2011, 5:09 PM EST.
I’m just going to write my quick prediction:
Sandy breaks up with Mike. Lucy looks after him and makes him feel better again and he apologises for treating her so bad before, but then Sandy texts him or goes to see him in real life asking for him back and he does, upsetting Lucy. However, Mike and Lucy have rekindled their friendship during this break and Mike, even though he’s glad to be with Sandy again, can’t help but feel he’s missing out by not being with Lucy.
Kite November 14, 2011, 5:13 PM EST.
Wait…. *rereads To The Top* Sandy telling him that she’d not be able to show up for Christmas wouldn’t give him that face…
Did she like, Pass out and is in the hospital? My cousin was put in the emergency room for too much stress on her body… so, It’s possible….D: poor Sandy… Poor Mike for having to go through whatever it is… and Lucy’s gonna probably be the strong one for Mike to lean on. (position change!)

Good ending 100% completion, mike finds out sandy is coming for christmas. Bad ending, she dumped him. but if that, why the blush?. Alternate ending (secret unlock) she sent naughty pics and gets him in trouble . i kidd i kidd
The_Captain1228 November 14, 2011, 5:20 PM EST.
when someone’s eyes get about 50x smaller, you know something is very, very wrong
Ryoushi-kun November 14, 2011, 5:20 PM EST.
I think Sandy breaking up with him is too predictable. As unlikely it is with his face in the last two panels (a frown and a distraught expression), I think that he got news that she’s going to be able to visit or something. I’d like to think Taeshi just wants us to think something that gets our hopes up for Lucy, and leave us hanging until next time.
Also, it’s worth mentioning that if she’s gotten hurt or something, she or her family would call rather than text, IMO. But of course, no telling til Wednesday!
eccentrik November 14, 2011, 5:23 PM EST.
The one thing I feel confident about is that it’s not Sandy breaking up with him. That’s the most obvious guess, and therefore it’s wrong. Plus, much as I have never entirely trusted Sandy because we don’t really know her, I doubt she’s the sort of terrible person who would break up via text message.
It might be that something has happened to Sandy, though. Or it might be something else entirely. I hope it’s Wednesday soon.

APerson November 14, 2011, 5:34 PM EST.
i’m afraid, that this is exactly what the title makes clear: December.
the month she came. it would be a perfect aspect to the story.
..just what i’m thinking though.
Somedambuilder November 14, 2011, 5:34 PM EST.
Wacky theory time!
Maybe it is a ransom note, sent via-text, and someone has kidnapped Sandy!
TheGirlWhoNeverComments November 14, 2011, 5:37 PM EST.
Forecast possiblites of what happens next comic
- Sandy dumps Mike because of her job
- Sandy got hospitalized
- Sandy ISH COMING TA TOWN!
- iPhone got Mike’s service discontinued
- Paul goes to prison and buzzed Mike to bail him out
- He got lottery’d ONE MIRRION DORRARS!
- He got notified that the shipment of RUM IS GONE!
Billy MT November 14, 2011, 5:38 PM EST.
I know it can’t be a breakup, but I’d like to think so.
There’s this little part of me chanting “Kick him to the curb, Sandy!”
Although it’s probably something more like a hospitalization or maybe a situation equally as bad.
I don’t know why anybody is suggesting that Sandy may be coming to visit. Although that’s a definite possibility, study Mike’s facial expression in the third-to-last panel: he goes grey (well, more grey) and the color drains from his cheeks. Plus, his brows have that little worried, shocked wrinkle. He looks more sad than happy.
Not to mention it was apparently a long text. A horrible thing would be more likely to be explained in detail, like an injury or breakup.
And then there’s the chance that Sandy’s dead.
But we won’t talk about that.
Tickle Monster November 14, 2011, 5:50 PM EST.
squeeee(not) November 14, 2011, 5:50 PM EST.

Xenos November 14, 2011, 6:15 PM EST.
I say she will be visiting for the holidays. That would add allot of stress to Lucy’s and Mike’s friend ship.
BluJax November 14, 2011, 6:17 PM EST.
Oh snap! one of 3 things could happen… 1. Mike’s Mom was killed in a car crash. 2. Sandy broke up with him for some other stud. 3. Aliens have killed the President. Probable the second one though…

N-Star November 14, 2011, 6:23 PM EST.
It seems the three most likely scenarios have been mentioned - sandy breaks up with mike; sandy’s coming to visit; long psyche out text from paulo/david followed by a picture of *****. Dunno if mike would look worried so much as overjoyed by sandy coming to visit…? Definitely waiting for Wednesday!
Carame November 14, 2011, 6:26 PM EST.
Aaw, and everything was going so well between Lucy and Mike! Wednesday needs to come faster! I can’t wait to find out what Taeshi has planned!
LostInPhilly89 November 14, 2011, 6:28 PM EST.
Either of the following:
Sandy breaking up with mike
A suprise visit from sandy
paulo sending a rather nasty pic to mike
Spam w/ nude pics?
either way I hope things all turn out okay!
Lara November 14, 2011, 6:30 PM EST.
danger looms in the near future…
Flicker November 14, 2011, 6:32 PM EST.
Oh no… it’s going to be bad for Lucy, I bet.
PURPLZ November 14, 2011, 6:36 PM EST.
No really, that would make me lol so hard. PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE.

I pray every night that the new page will get released early, but it never happens.
Rectification November 14, 2011, 6:48 PM EST.
It’s a text.
Magus November 14, 2011, 6:51 PM EST.
Oh my god, don’t tell me. SANDY DIES? Sorry, sorry, that was mean. . _ .;; What I MEANT to say was..Sandy broke up with Mike!?! 8D Awww man that would be epic. <3 I feel like that’s too predictable though. Oh well, a fangirl can dream can’t she?
WhatisthisIdontEven November 14, 2011, 7:18 PM EST.
What happened?!?! Wednesday can’t come soon enough!!
George November 14, 2011, 7:26 PM EST.
Mike looks like i did this weekend -_- thanks for that Taeshi. noe i feel like a cliche
FoxAndWolf November 14, 2011, 7:26 PM EST.
Why did I choose this time to check right when the update comes out?
… Now I won’t know what happens until Wednesday. ;A;
Satora November 14, 2011, 7:31 PM EST.
… thaaaaaat’s not a good face to be making at a text from Sandy…
Silka November 14, 2011, 7:33 PM EST.
….I can honestly say i have no idea exactly what’s going to happen…. I’m a bit frightened at the possibilities running rampant through my head. Excellent suspense.
PossiblyVenomous November 14, 2011, 7:34 PM EST.
Long messages and texts are epic.
BlossomWolf November 14, 2011, 7:43 PM EST.
Taeshi, you know how to build suspense to the point right before I want to leave! xD YOU’RE SO PERFECT. I LOVE YOU~<3

Jessica U. Ingmann November 14, 2011, 7:45 PM EST.
Oh no, cliff hangers! I love your comic so far, read them all in one day!
Omnom November 14, 2011, 7:52 PM EST.
@Keewee: You know what, I see where you’re going with this. That could be possible. I can’t personally tell that sorta thing myself, but then again, now that you mention it, chances are that Sandy Claws is comin’ to town for the holidays. It fits the pattern, a pattern you start to recognize easily after reading over about 17 different webcomics for well over a year.nThe story writer will create the perfect setup. They pave the roadway and put up signs making the reader think they’re gonna make a left turn. They keep going, almost there, and BAM, RIGHT TURN. The reader doesn’t what happened, they don’t know how they got there, but they like it. (Meaning: Set up with clues to assume one plot, but clues are a ruse to hide a different, true plot.) Great call!
phoenix16 November 14, 2011, 7:52 PM EST.
IT BEGINS. I’m one of those people who jumps to THAT ONE conclusion on what this is, but chances are I’m so far off.
Crealstar November 14, 2011, 8:02 PM EST.
Aaaw please don’t be what I think it is! I take it all back! Mike is a wonderful person ok? So go out with him and have adorable little babies with him out? OK?
Timni November 14, 2011, 8:10 PM EST.
SANDY IS SEXTING! LE GASP

ObsidianSnow November 14, 2011, 8:25 PM EST.
Oh come on!! This was turning into a very good situation to start reconciliation, now Sandy is ruining everything…..still like Sandy.
jjkronos November 14, 2011, 8:25 PM EST.
Pleeeeease be Sandy texting Mike that she wants to break up! Or that she’s coming over. Take your bets here! Sandy vs. Lucy! Come see tha biggest cat-fight of tha year!
no one November 14, 2011, 8:26 PM EST.
i hope im wrong,but,if u think about it,it makes perfect scene,but maybe sandy either broke up w/th mike or(the WAY more extreme)she’s dead or dieing.im probally WAY off thoh.
THAT GUY November 14, 2011, 8:38 PM EST.
Maishul, I’m pregnant. okay. good luck with my baby, sending you it in mail right now.
Not Sandy November 14, 2011, 8:55 PM EST.
but…i like sandy
nobody November 14, 2011, 8:55 PM EST.
He is blushing, so maybe she is texting to say that she is visiting for the holidays?? She may still have family where Mike lives considering she used to live there too. Or maybe she is sexting hahaha…..awkward.
If it were a break up, I really would have hoped Sandy would we respectable enough for a call instead. BUT if she is in the middle some kind of class/lesson/modeling thingy, then maybe she doesn’t have time to make a call….and upon excitement of being able to see him she just couldn’t wait to say something.
Iris November 14, 2011, 9:00 PM EST.
…Wh-what…. What happened to team Paulo with the buttons?
Anyway. I’m not sure that Sandy dumped Mike on her own will, if at all. It’s sort of…. Not reasonable.
(Though it would be awesome)
Ice-Flower November 14, 2011, 9:00 PM EST.
Sandy, leave mike so he goes back to lucy. And then all will be well again! ……I hope thats what the text is about…
sam November 14, 2011, 9:02 PM EST.
It might not even be Sandy (although we all know it is). It might just be David and Paulo sending him various pictures of fowl and other birds. I’d laugh if Taeshi decided to troll us though and make that actually be the case. But it’s probably Sandy telling Mike that this December she will come unlike that other Christmas she said she would come but instead only left a present for Mike.
And Ok I’ll give Mike a clean slate. As long as his douchebaggery and bad ways to handle situations don’t arise again I won’t hate on him.
Vulpinewolf November 14, 2011, 9:03 PM EST.
Well, we all kinda saw this coming with the announcement of “MIKE AND LUCYS IMMINENT BREAKUP” from a few updates ago, But I’m not entierly sure whats gonna’ happen. We’ll all find put soon enough, but I cant stand the wait, but the wait is what keeps me coming back. Mixed feelings: ALSO: ObsidianSnow when I saw your comment, I laughed so much I cryed, which is kinda sad.
Nicholas November 14, 2011, 9:07 PM EST.
(since the BCB board hates me i’ll redo this)
Mikes expression is wrong if it was a breakup
he’d have dread lines they look kinda like this:
same for the she’s dead theorem.
sorry guys, judging by what i’ve read you don’t like sandy but the break-up isn’t happening just yet.
it’s more likely she’s either on her way or she’s there already and is outside.
strider November 14, 2011, 9:14 PM EST.
I’m going to assume that its either Sandy breaking up, or that they were planning a day to hang out but she can’t make it…which gives Lucy a shot at her love…which ironically she was just starting to cope with….
Sirius November 14, 2011, 9:22 PM EST.
It’s a naked picture of David… O.O
Awesome November 14, 2011, 9:29 PM EST.
Hmm i think that sandy’s coming to see mike,because the look on his face isnt the exact reaction for a breakup message…
gabriella November 14, 2011, 9:41 PM EST.
“Maishul, ever since I since I felt so great after deciding to cheat on my diet; I thought that I might as well try the ‘cheating’ thing again.”
Saiyza November 14, 2011, 9:41 PM EST.
This all seems to point to a breakup. Where could she find time to visit? This may be her busiest time of year… As well, back in the Sandy-exclusive chapter, she seemed to give in to how she could never be able to see Mike, or at least she expresses a laziness in finding a way to. Anyways, text is their principle form of contact and this would be the first way she would break it off.
And Mike isn’t spazzing, so she can’t be coming. Read back to when Mike was given the opportunity to get a plane ticket to see her.
Dragnite November 14, 2011, 9:44 PM EST.
@Awesome: David’s blocked and anyway, Mike stops looking fast. Okay?
@Dragnite: Not quite. Do remember she has some trouble with initiative. This I got from Daisy, her old best friend would give a pretty honest take on Sandy, for everyone’s sake.
If I had to guess, I’d say these times are tears’. Sadness or something for the years, as Sandy has now realized te distance from him was despised. Sandy has enacted something that may lead to forgetting he has company and a friend to help take this painful end. Otherwise, I’d hope she comes to help end raging and “ho hums” from everyone who cares at all. So, Michael, tell us. What’s the call? :X
Hoheh November 14, 2011, 9:45 PM EST.
I know that face too well. Hang on tight folks, because it’s all downhill from here.
Nik Nak November 14, 2011, 9:50 PM EST.
lol, 4th panel. I see bad things and it wont stop.
Amazing Lagann November 14, 2011, 9:52 PM EST.
Oh my god. I skipped a heartbeat at Mike’s face! Your ability to express character feelings via face expressions is amazing Taeshi, and I hope I’m not right about what’s coming…
Luio November 14, 2011, 9:55 PM EST.
Cock.jpg cock.jpg cock.jpg cock.jpg
Please let it NOT be Sandy cheating on him/dumping his ***. He’ll get emotional and unreachable, not to mention dead inside.
Maybe it’s his mom, saying she’s been in an accident…? Maybe Paulo will have gotten someone pregnant? Or David noticed Kazuma? Or… or… The Saiyans have arrived on Earth? (Come on. They ARE monkeys, after all. It’d fit in with the animal-Earth setting) *sigh* It’ll be Sandy, it’s obvious. But one can dream.
Turtle Hermit November 14, 2011, 9:58 PM EST.
please let it not be sandy saying shes outside that door right now!! oh please please please! lucy! hide!

The suspense is killing me!
Choko November 14, 2011, 10:19 PM EST.
Yes!!! She dumped him he will have an emotional breakdown and will love lucy…till the next bimbo comes along…
DinR November 14, 2011, 10:28 PM EST.
I bet Sandy just wrote a 5,000 word text breaking up with him.
EpicGamerGirl November 14, 2011, 10:29 PM EST.
@Amazing Lagann, how’s your webcomic going, did that ever get off the ground, if so where can I find it?
Deuce Moose November 14, 2011, 10:32 PM EST.
i vote for “True Colors” being cannon.
The-Gray-Angel November 14, 2011, 10:34 PM EST.
the suspense is killing what could be from sandy or stranger wit his number
BONK November 14, 2011, 10:39 PM EST.
That’s actually exactly the phrase I was looking for, “lack of initiative.” “Laziness” was kindof a compromise due to me forgetting what words fit :b
And I have a new take on this; being in a long-distance relationship myself, and going through this situation almost exactly, I know what could happen.
If Mike has gotten a breakup text, then he will probably go insane and try to mend it. He could succeed, but then Lucy’s presence could make him doubt his decision. Then Lucy could potentially argue with him over Sandy’s legitimacy (hence the “emotional rollercoaster” and 40 expected pages) and the resurrection of ******* Mike, who we recently watched die.
That pretty much happened to me; I mended my long distance relationship and have gone through people telling me it isn’t real. The only thing missing is the other girl pining for me, hah…
Dragnite November 14, 2011, 10:42 PM EST.
Spoilers: Sandy broke up with him.
Maybe not… :T
somedude November 14, 2011, 10:42 PM EST.
If this is a break up txt I must say, DIDN’T KELLY TEACH US ANYTHING, YOU CAN’T TEXT MESSAGE BREAK UP!
(for anyone who doesn’t get the reference I am talking about the person who did the viral videos “Let me borrow that top” and “Shoes”. That’s another one of his/her videos)
Deuce Moose November 14, 2011, 11:00 PM EST.
Don’t forget, all 40 paged might not be for Mike, Lucy and the possible Sandy. It might be for Abbey too, as we saw in the beginning something questionable.
Jax November 14, 2011, 11:27 PM EST.
My favourite is Argondr’s idea (someone forwarded Sandy’s nudes to Mike). Unlikely, but deliciously dramatic <___
NadaBear November 14, 2011, 11:40 PM EST.
Sandy prolly got injured.. WAHAHAHARRRR.. wait. No! LUCYXMIKE ! I feel my powers drainingggg…:c

Davis sent Mike a dirty pic

Sandy sent him a dirty pic
I’m hoping it’s something that stops Mike from being a bitch monkey

Neila078 November 14, 2011, 11:59 PM EST.
Oooohhh this is getting juicy. MUST FIND OUT WHAT HAPPENS. Maybe I’ll just wait a few weeks before checking for updates, because waiting for stuff to be revealed is just killing me

arrrrrg! i thought it was Wednesday but its not
tho i left checked this comic on my brothers computer now hes reading it ~
Joay November 15, 2011, 12:25 AM EST.
I mean just imagine how dramatic it would get if they broke up and got back together over text! Theyre still together, and all the drama of a breakup remains…
Dragnite November 15, 2011, 12:27 AM EST.
Maybe Sandy has been chosen to participate in a Playcat magazine?
Waldo November 15, 2011, 12:31 AM EST.
He’s still blushing, its probably a pic of Sandy all nice looking and hes like “OMG.” I would be really happy if Sandy broke up with him over a text, maybe said he was “too clingy” or something.
Marik November 15, 2011, 12:38 AM EST.
Please tell me Sandy is breaking up with him. Don’t get me wrong, I’m a Lucy/Paulo fan all the way, but I have to say I like Mike a lot more without Sandy in the picture. He and Lucy had their problems, but his getting back together with Sandy just made him way too hateful.
novascottch November 15, 2011, 12:49 AM EST.
david wrote a large ammount of text and sent a picture of his *bleep* again…
apreantly i cant say the d word here
runo November 15, 2011, 12:54 AM EST.
@novascottch i agree with you all the way, although i do think that was mike suddenly feeling the need to not have lucy around anymore because he had a girlfriend and he felt threatened or something. (or being an arrogant dick) either way i still like sandy and mike together. i also dont like the possibility of lucy jumping back to mike when he’s single. in my opinion, paulo needs to break it off with the annoying pest and go get his woman before anything.
EmmaBemmaNem November 15, 2011, 12:56 AM EST.
WHY. WHY MUST WE WAIT UNTIL WEDNESDAY. THE SUSPENSE IS KILLING MY BRAIN
Dementos November 15, 2011, 1:09 AM EST.
Sandy is probably moving to Europe permanently to pursue her fashion modeling or she got moved over there, leaving no choice but to break up.
Retarded Ronald McDonald November 15, 2011, 1:10 AM EST.
Sandy, what did we tell you about sexting Mike while everyone else is awake? It’s not ladylike.
DrBurple November 15, 2011, 1:15 AM EST.
Mike has been way too rude to Lucy - I hope Sandy is moving to Paris with her supermodel boyfriend and is dumping Mike via text.
And then Lucy realises she doesn’t actually love Mike!
Seriously, Mike was too immature about rejecting Lucy, and Lucy won’t learn how to behave normally if he refuses to explain it to her.
Georginorx November 15, 2011, 1:29 AM EST.
What RRMcD said, but add that her parents are forcing her to.
HyperBallistic November 15, 2011, 2:01 AM EST.
TAESHI! Why’d you stop answering questions on Tumblr? Also, I hope Sandy is okay. My first initial reaction to Mike’s stare is that Sandy got in an accident.
Seikyuu November 15, 2011, 2:09 AM EST.
Dear Mishell I want to have your baby xoxoxox……………………….Or Mishell i’m dumping u
JustSomeCritic November 15, 2011, 2:21 AM EST.
Mike blushing in the 4th/5th panel (whatever you call that one) is so awkward.
StarSturdy November 15, 2011, 2:21 AM EST.
Alright, so, after looking over the sequence of expressions, I have thought of a possible explanation. Sandy’s either: cheated on him, or else is breaking up with him. Or else it could be Sandy’s mother, telling him to ‘Stop talking with my darling girl; she has a lot going on, and has no need for a boy that distracts her from her full potential.’ Aka the ‘You’re a waste of space’ message. The reason why it’s through Sandy’s phone: her mom wanted to make it quick and didn’t want to send it through her phone.
Mike’s face in the last panel is one of dread, or the calm before the storm. Whatever the message was, it didn’t do any good to the poor boy. He could be flushed because it’s a build up to pure rage. That last face is one of gathering information, and processing it. We don’t really have a good grasp of time, and it could only be a few seconds; this whole page could be in slow motion, like how it slows before a major event that never ends good.
If it’s a face of anger, my predicament is that he’s going to still be in shock, and when Lucy tries to shake him out of it, all of it gets released at her. He might not hit her, but he might blame her viciously, and break a bunch of his things, out of sheer outrage of not seeing what was coming. Lucy would try to calm him down, but in the end he would storm out, or shove Lucy out of his room, and lock himself in, breaking all his stuff. His sister gets their parents, and their parents open the door by force to see Mike in the middle of a completely destroyed room. Not a lot of stuff affects him, but when it does, it comes out majorly, and swiftly.
If it’s a face of sorrow/dismay, he will be comforted by Lucy, maybe punch a wall, and let Lucy comfort him for the most part. He would angst, and whine, and say it was all his fault, that he could have done better, that he should. ‘Am I not good enough?’ ‘How could she do this to me?’ type talk, and Lucy would try her best to make sure it didn’t manifest into pure despise for Sandy. It might backfire though, considering it’s Lucy, and she doesn’t have the best rep for dealing with emotions in the best way possible.
I’m kind of hoping for the first option; seeing Mike rage hardcore would be ever-so thrilling, and terrifying.
the other white meat November 15, 2011, 2:28 AM EST.
Mike, I thought you said you didn’t sext with Sandy.
Icsifil November 15, 2011, 2:30 AM EST.
Come on Mike, show us your TRUE COLOURS
Gnukko November 15, 2011, 3:18 AM EST.
Judging by his reaction and facial expressions, it has a high chance of being something negative, maybe; the way I see it. From the least critical to the most, I’d say it was either Sandy is coming to see Mike in the play but he’s worried that she might see him with Lucy, Sandy’s asking for them to break off their relationship, Sandy was in an accident, or (as some depicted it, as a joke or otherwise) Sandy’s dead.
Well, it might be good news and that he’s paralyzed by joy or something, but seems unlikely to me.
Either way, nobody can tell for sure; just gotta wait for it, huh.
Harris012 November 15, 2011, 4:40 AM EST.
The other white meat-
I love your idea. IT BETTER COME TRUE.
Dragnite November 15, 2011, 5:33 AM EST.
its sandy breaking his heart but the way he was acting earler he was about ready to kiss lucy shes better for him than sandy

Mattaki November 15, 2011, 6:37 AM EST.
Dang it Sandy!!!!!!!
If it’s what I think it is, I’ve been thinking it since Sandy left!
LucyxMike all the way.
Keirron November 15, 2011, 7:37 AM EST.
- the other white meat
you have stricken our empty plot with excellence!
I do so hope the second scenario comes to being though, so he can “couple” with lucy more smoothly. Though I bet it’s probably a forged message by roger’s gang :c … *hate*
Reiza November 15, 2011, 7:41 AM EST.
My face when Sandy actually texts him saying shes either, A moving away but she loves him and wants to try long distance, thus keeping us in suspense for another chapter or 2 until he finds out shes a cheater. Or shes coming back and for some odd reason he was just shocked, maybe thinking Lucy would freak.
Marik November 15, 2011, 7:42 AM EST.
OH COME ON
that’s not funny.
every time i think
“something’s gonna happen!”
and then, it says at the bottom
“Next Page Wednesday!”
Calico Insanity November 15, 2011, 7:48 AM EST.
I got it! Sandy’s coming to visit Mike finally! And he’s so shocked and shtuff. And his face is so upset caaaaause, she’s visiting… WITH HER NEW BOYFRIEND
LikexMucy November 15, 2011, 8:33 AM EST.
Three things I think has happened:
1: Sandy’s done with him (not very likely)
2: Sandy’s not done, but needs a ‘break.’ (still not likely, but a little more believable than 1)
3: she’s visiting Roseville (the most likely)
That’s all I could think of. Seriously.
Metsane November 15, 2011, 8:51 AM EST.
Bet she’s preggers…that cyber-sperm is some crazy ****.
Gummy November 15, 2011, 8:59 AM EST.
It couldn’t possibly be break up, Mike is blushing far too much for it to be that.
Like others have previously said, Sandy might be coming to visit.
And LOL Gummy xD
Skygaze November 15, 2011, 9:21 AM EST.
Guess who broke up with who? =3
Lyucs November 15, 2011, 9:37 AM EST.

@ Deuce Moose
Wow, thanks for remembering, i can’t belive that you actually paid attention to the original post and found the time to comment on that one.
The website my friend made was what I have most of my pictures on. I haven’t been able to put a lot of stuff on because I’m trying to graduate early, but it has a few things. I will try to be more consistant in the future.
Its at Doublekillstudios.webs.com
Amazing Lagann November 15, 2011, 10:00 AM EST.
@Strider yeahh all the way up there lol. I agree with you. She’s probably coming to see him. Can’t complain really. I’ve wanted her to become a part of the main story for a while. Ain’t no way in hell they’re breaking up.
Legion November 15, 2011, 10:05 AM EST.
I’ve been reading this comic (love it) for a while now, so I hope there is no break-up between Mike and Sandy.
Drakara November 15, 2011, 10:15 AM EST.
@Amazing Lagann Thanks man can’t wait to see it.
Deuce Moose November 15, 2011, 11:26 AM EST.
Break up. LOLNOPE!
Probably just someone messing around with him.
Big Macintosh November 15, 2011, 12:26 PM EST.
Well, there -could- be a death in play, too.
Or something else severe.
Seeing the shadows painted on Mike’s eyes, it’s usually a combination of fear and depression, but the last shot shows a horrified look and a blush.
So, maybe she’s comming over instead.
If they were breaking up, I doubt his eyes ‘d be drawn like that.
Unless, you know, the new style is just meant to f* with your head.
Davey November 15, 2011, 12:42 PM EST.
@ davey. i do believe it’s the new style, cause for the whole comic, they are both having a blush on their faces, likely from ether the winter or intense gaming. also.. less than 12 hrs from the next panel
inumaru November 15, 2011, 12:47 PM EST.
I don’t think it’s a break up text.
Eru November 15, 2011, 1:22 PM EST.
Me neither, there’s got to be a catch.
Doodlebug November 15, 2011, 1:34 PM EST.
It is not a picture! Mike says it’s a text! Furthermore, while the timing of his speech and tone could change this, I think it’s a rather safe assumption that Sandy is texting him. After Lucy asks”who is it?” Mike responds with “You know”. Now this could be one of trip things. What I would like to think is that he is answering Lucy in a very passive way, then making a comment about the message. Or what I think is just as likely is that that entire speech bubble is a comment about the message. That Mike is using the phrase “you know”in the way some of us sometimes do, preempting an obvious statement.

She is “here.” Probably at the door and he is embarrased by the fact that she’ll get to meet Lucy…lol!
kelistics November 15, 2011, 2:14 PM EST.
As his eyes move back and forth, he is reading the message. As he gets to the end he reads something that causes his reaction. I have 2 guesses:
Bad ending: Some sort of upsetting news from Sandy about a breakup, her not being able to ext or talk to him anymore.
Good ending: It is a surprise text to let him know that she is going to be able to visit him/he is able to go visit her, and it is going to happen for Christmas!
Mika November 15, 2011, 2:17 PM EST.
Oh gee a model girlfreind sends a long text and the boy blushes, two words: cat porn
Guy November 15, 2011, 2:33 PM EST.
If this is a break-up text, shame on Sandy. Regardless, it would probably be for some legimate reason like, as a few have said, she’s way too far away. However, she could just be saying she’s moving far away and not mentioning breaking up, Mike would still react that way.
Anyways, even if it is the break-up Suitcase alluded to, there is still not really hope for the MikexLucy fans as it’s already been said they won’t get together in the FAQ section. This might be a clever ruse to leave it all open, but honestly they would both be happier with someone else. They’re great friends, but probably nothing more :S Makes me sad but that’s reality. Stupid Cliffhangers
Caleb November 15, 2011, 2:42 PM EST.
Just noticed that this page has take second place for the most commented on page (According to the comment chart on SuitCase’s tumblr).
Viken November 15, 2011, 2:52 PM EST.
Possible text messange:
1) Sandy is in the door (XD)
2) Sandy broke with Mike and find a new boyfriend
3) Sandy pass out (hope not)
Katanasoul November 15, 2011, 2:52 PM EST.
My God will people stop with the FAQ thing already!? Sometimes it say’s no, sometimes it says yes, no one knows!! And this come’s from a non-lucyxmike fan. It just drives me crazy when people bring that up
C: November 15, 2011, 2:56 PM EST.
@C:: None of the immediately visible comments , mention that. Except yours and Caleb’s. Considering how much trouble people here can have with characterization, how much does that comment hurt anything? Relax.
@Caleb: Do remember, Lucy romantically wants Mike. Other than Sandy, Lucy is the only other girl Mike might get with we’re aware of.
Hoheh November 15, 2011, 3:12 PM EST.
Now I kind of feel like Sandy’s in the hospital or something
GirlWithGlasses November 15, 2011, 3:17 PM EST.
It’s either Sandy sending an explicit text or one of his family members got injured. IM SO BETTING IT WAS HIS FAMILY MEMBER! Also, it could be CAT PR0N!
That Guy right there. November 15, 2011, 3:19 PM EST.
It needs not be explicit, though feelings of love lie within.
Perhaps she speaks of the many fun times she had with him.
Perhaps it’s a great story Sandy has texted on a whim.
Maybe it is a lewd picture, and his thoughts are on sin.
It doesn’t change a single thing. That’s why you should just keep reading.
Hoheh likes the Forest Temple…
Hoheh November 15, 2011, 3:33 PM EST.
Hoheh, you need to fix your rhyme,
The length is alltogether wrong;
15 syllables in one line,
Shorten them so they become strong!
JimmyP424 November 15, 2011, 3:42 PM EST.
I don’t know, I don’t think it’s a breakup because that’s too predictable. But hey, you never know.
Me November 15, 2011, 3:44 PM EST.
I bet Sandy’s coming to town.
Autumn November 15, 2011, 3:45 PM EST.
From what I can tell, there might be a break-up between Sandy and Mike. (DAMMIT, SUITCASE!) Or it could be somthing else. Only time (Make that Wednesday. :L) will tell…
Lotvk November 15, 2011, 3:48 PM EST.
Hey the swimmer, do you see this? It’s a small simple comment. Trololololol
Mike’s eyes go from big to small. The emotion results in 1 conclusion. This can’t be good >:)
Crestofboredom November 15, 2011, 3:55 PM EST.
Paulo could be coming out the cloest to Mike? As a practical joke prehaps that backfires. Or it could be LUCYs phone where Mike thinks “I doubt Lucy’d mind. OMG WTF is this ” I doubt it has something to do with Sandy as its to obvious. Or it could be a double bluff. The possabilities are endless
My personal theory: An character, perhaps Jess [I dunno], sends Mike and lovey-dovey text whilst being drunk. Causing Mike to become uncertain of his friendship with that character as he does/ doesn’t feel the same way
Explosms ;) November 15, 2011, 4:00 PM EST.
Also… why do people want them to break up? If you want him to get with Lucy, he’s already gotten over her, and she’s getting over him… so, although I know they won’t, at least not yet, but if they do break up, there’s almost no chance of them dating.
Tcj333 November 15, 2011, 4:09 PM EST.
Maybe it’s Sandy’s family member saying she got in a terrible accident That would suck.
Lunar November 15, 2011, 4:27 PM EST.
@JimmyP424: There’s something you ignore. You need to fix your thought process. I never claimed proper scheme, yes? I like to play and that is way less coherent to some. Hoheh~
Hoheh , who wonders how many know “hoheh” is pronounced “ho-ay”. Oh well. Won’t dwell, but wait. Wednesday will be when we sate our curiosity. Be prepared, all. Until then, hohee~
Hoheh November 15, 2011, 4:28 PM EST.
Rockit November 15, 2011, 4:40 PM EST.
To those who think it’s something happy/surprising typed in the text… His eyebrows have creased/furrowed. I dunno about you, but when something surprising or happy happens, I raise my eyebrows in… well surprise. I don’t look as if the color has drained from my face and furrow my brow.
Unless Sandy is coming and Mike just does not want that at all. Anyways, what I’m saying here is, the facial expressions don’t match up to something that looks like a surprise or happy. It looks like fear.
Minty Lime Green November 15, 2011, 4:57 PM EST.
i would like to beleive its a text from sandy saying get alot of condoms ready im on my way
but it wouldnt be PG if it were so so it must be something Mike will massively look forward to or absolutely devastate him,something like sandy saying i found someone else or that she was seriously injured and may never wake up….
robonaruto November 15, 2011, 5:07 PM EST.
Oh no… it might be a break up o.o
Lilnekogrl November 15, 2011, 5:20 PM EST.
Or he’s gonna be as mad as S.T.A.L.K.E.R.’s Blowout?
Only time will tell.
Waldo November 15, 2011, 5:20 PM EST.
Possible answers to this intense suspence…
Sandy broke up with Mike!! (it’s possible, but then again, not likely, is sandy wanted to break up with him, why so it over text? Or why not sooner?)
Sandys comin to town! (very likely, Mike was blushing the whole time.)
It’s David being pervy, and the long text was many many links to pictures, if ya know what I meen. (likely, but probally not it.)
Another girl is coming into Mikes life!! (have no idea how likely it is, go ask somebody else.)
It’s a text saying the projects due a day earlier
Sky hannah November 15, 2011, 5:24 PM EST.
!哇 I am pleased to see that if Lucy and Michael become friends again!
debby mai November 15, 2011, 5:45 PM EST.
i think sandy just broke up with him!
G!@nN@ November 15, 2011, 5:49 PM EST.
Aww, nuts… that face would fit in correctly in the scenario where Sandy says she’s moving back to town for good… It would seem Taeshi has made a decision, then… The war between MikexLucy shippers and MikexSandy shippers has gone on for too long. The final battle shall begin ON WEDNESDAY.
Gabe November 15, 2011, 5:58 PM EST.
Kaarrrrrmaaaaa! It’s there. I know your intentions with being a jerk were good, Mike. But now it’s payback time. Sorry.
spicybleachedhead November 15, 2011, 6:07 PM EST.
SANDY IS COMING! or taeshi is fooling us..

Cata :3 November 15, 2011, 6:32 PM EST.
From the looks of things, it seems that he’s not fond of what happened in that text. Either that or it’s good, but he feels awkward about it with Lucy there… LEAVE HIM ALONE SANDY! D=

Can not WAIT to see what’s on that text I wonder…is it Sandy? Or is it David? I wonder….
MidnightSnack November 15, 2011, 7:16 PM EST.
Oi I have a feeling that either he’s about to be excited as heck, or…. Sandy is dropping the bomb.
But from the looks of it…. Dropping the Bomb.
Mirasia November 15, 2011, 7:33 PM EST.
ITS DAVID TIME BAYBEE!
I really hope its David with some comic relief
Blackstar117 November 15, 2011, 7:40 PM EST.
jk. It’s probably Sandy and she’s coming, right? We DID fill up your friggin’ book thing, didn’t we?
Joey November 15, 2011, 7:48 PM EST.
Looks like there is trouble in paradise after all this time… Or its simply David implying one of his nasty jokes. But probably option one since he does not even respond to his name.
Cal-Lightwood November 15, 2011, 7:52 PM EST.
She dumped him………That or she’s moving home.
Brain Worm November 15, 2011, 7:59 PM EST.
AND THEN THEY BROKE UP. Simply moving back would not inquire a long text. Sandy dumped his ***.
Mike Angst Arc anyone?
Ryo November 15, 2011, 8:15 PM EST.
I bet Sandy is breaking up with Mike. Or something bad happened. OR IT HAS TO DO WITH A KIDNAPPING!
Jello November 15, 2011, 8:17 PM EST.
The banner didn’t literally mean sandy was coming. It was just a graphic made by one of the fans to track progress of the book’s sales. Honestly, people need to do research before they start making stupid claims.
FYI not targeting anyone specific, I’m just tired of reading comments nagging about the freaking banner. I thought it was a nice idea, but people always find a way to warp things.
The Observer November 15, 2011, 8:17 PM EST.
Awwww and Lucy was doing SOOOOO well, making a bit of progress on getting over mike. Don’t get me wrong, I want mike and sandy to break up, but if they did and mike rebounds, I’ll be dispointed because Lucy should have someone better.
Jninja13 November 15, 2011, 8:17 PM EST.
Wow. This is the first time I’ve actually posted on the board! Either way, it seems to me that Sandy’s either coming home or she’s got someone else. Quite the deliema. =/

They totally broke up. Carter should a small chance to get Lucy or another character. She gave Mike lots of chances and he blew it.
mysterycricket November 15, 2011, 8:35 PM EST.
I like how mike’s eyes get smaller each panel
Eva Cann November 15, 2011, 8:41 PM EST.
It’s either someone else texting him bad news, bad news from Sandy or surprise good news from Sandy.

nickwolf November 15, 2011, 9:03 PM EST.
I don’t want her to break up with him, but he better not be mean to Lucy after this.
I mean, jeez, they’re finally almost friends.
OR maybe Sandy’s in town! +gasp+

Please. If Mike and Sandy break up I swear I will stop reading this… Probably not but seriously.

They tottaly broke up. Mike , im warning you, hurt lucy bcuz of this, and I will hunt you down IM WARNING YOU MAN! SHE DESERVES YOUR LOVE NOT YOUR SAD BOOHOO HATE!!

Superanimecutie. What if he does hurts Lucy? I mean, its honestly annoying to hear people say that they will hunt down fictional characters.
T-RollingU November 15, 2011, 9:43 PM EST.
Please just tell me it’s david and not sandy breaking up with mike
Blackheart November 15, 2011, 9:54 PM EST.
If Sandy breaks up with Mikie, Mikie will poor his eyes out and blame or make Lucys life a mersiry I will be SOOO upset BUT I will be so happy that Sandy had broken up with Mikie (no affence MikexSandy lovers)
The White Lion November 15, 2011, 10:14 PM EST.
Hooray! It’s finally time for the Daisy pregnancy arc!
Because since Suitcase said it, that obviously makes it the law.
The Observer November 15, 2011, 10:17 PM EST.
Wow, that’s a bit confusing. The “probably not” is referring to the possibility of Mike and Sandy breaking up or you not reading this comic? And the “but seriously” is to you “seriously” leaving this comic, or is that to express your how much you don’t want a break up? (I’m assuming that your just over exaggerating the whole ‘I’m done with this thing’ over a plot choice, and I only address the other confusion)
The Swimmer November 15, 2011, 10:20 PM EST.
If it’s Sandy, I’m guessing it’s either she’s breaking up with him or SURPRISE! she’s magically in town to see him.
My only other thoughts are that maybe somebody got hurt, died, or his house is on fire, and all of those are a lot less likely to happen. If I said more, that would have been funny. But I didn’t.
Mike seems a bit fat in the laying down position there ha position. Lucy is genuinely concerned. : o This doesn’t happen every day. Mike likes to blush *teehee* Also, the scarf seems very copy-and-paste and not changing to the current body position and camera angle too much. Tsk tsk *bitchslapped*
Aww he doesn’t have a white iPhone those things are awesomeee.
JC November 15, 2011, 10:24 PM EST.
So I’m an avid reader and never really comment but as much as I would hate to see Mike lose his gall and go back to Lucy now after a break up with Sandy, can we not think outside the box a moment. Maybe the text isn’t a break up but an, “Hey, guess who’s outside ^.^” text which would hold way more drama, entertainment, and surprise!
CDC-The reader November 15, 2011, 10:29 PM EST.
Omgomgomgomg, so close to Comic being posted soon! Eeeee! <3

I’ve waited long enough.
Now is the time for Snu-Snu!
Ren November 15, 2011, 10:38 PM EST.
WAIT! Before the next comic uploads, here’s my guess. Maybe Augustus has finally made his move against “Green Eyes”, and this is either a picture of Sandy cheating on him which may or may not be real or fake, or a picture that’s made to look like Mike cheated on Sandy with Lucy. That, or Sandy’s coming because earlier Taeshi said “Mike and Sandy are not having relationship issues, as will be made clear shortly”
Flashbomb7 November 15, 2011, 10:39 PM EST.
@Flashbomb Except that its a “Long Text”. Not an image.
SToS_R November 15, 2011, 10:46 PM EST.
Only - they may not be having relationship issues, but one can hope that Sandy is moving to Europe and calling things off
Remix November 15, 2011, 10:52 PM EST.
Oooook… I’m kinda scared to know what that text is… I get those quite often which is kinda sad.
Blackshadow November 15, 2011, 10:53 PM EST.
Sandy was too good for Mike anyway *shot*
Spinnner. November 15, 2011, 10:54 PM EST.
And they were getting along… so nicely….
Sandy’s moving there because she got a modeling job in the nearest city, the one that’s an hour away, and she’s going to be going to their school because her parents are letting her, though I don’t know why that would be.
Thats my prediction. Let the endless refreshing begin!
… and why do I always get stuck with the “dumb comments” filter even though I’m never off topic…?

someGuy November 15, 2011, 11:17 PM EST.
I gotta say this, it’s something i thought over when i read all the stories dealing with mikeXsandy and the majority of BCB fans. there’s underlying theme and (what i think) a good quote that goes to the majority of the current shippings.
“You can’t always get what you want,
But if you try sometimes you might find
You get what you need” - rolling stones
think of this line when you read the story cause that’s how the story usually goes.
strider November 15, 2011, 11:22 PM EST.
Y’know the impossible can totally happen and it could be Carson coming back from the grave, now that I think about it…
All the possibilities.
SplatterWolf November 15, 2011, 11:27 PM EST.
For all the people saying its a nude photo, or any photo for that matter, its highly unlikely because he said its a long text, and also you see his eyes moving around for a while before he got shocked, so it couldnt be a picture.
I think its probably either sandy or someone else important got into an accident, or shes standing outside his door, because he looks more shocked and scared than anything.
As much as i woukd like it to be a breakup, i dont think it is because i feel like that would be to obvious.
Either way, i cant wait!
Purple Platypi November 15, 2011, 11:38 PM EST.
It’s either: “Blah blah blah, I’m breaking up with you.” or “Blah blah blah, I CAN FINALLY SEE YOU!”
FireflyFuneral November 15, 2011, 11:41 PM EST.
It’s Sandy. It’s a long text. No pictures, nobody but Sandy. (Please pay attention to when Mike replies to Lucy with, “You know…”)
Rectification November 15, 2011, 11:41 PM EST.
I bet taeshi and suit case are just laffin their bahookies off right now. if i were her i would put the next update on a totally different url and the make up a bunch of hints as to which of the cajillion links (posted bellow in the news thingy) is the real deal… just to **** everybody off you know? then the next day i would just put it on the original site. muahahaha…. thank shizundle bundles i ain’t taeshi. XP
lemme sleep plz November 15, 2011, 11:48 PM EST.
I would seriously laugh if it was Sandy breaking up with him. That would be so unoriginal and lame…

Reviewing older comic bits for predictions, and the look of dread rather than excitement on Mikes face supports one of my ideas. Sandy, you may be a total b*tch if I’m right.
