Oh noes another cliffhanger!
Cavara July 18, 2012, 12:00 AM EST.
WHATS IN THE BOX?!?!?!?!? AHHHHH I CAN’T STAND SUSPENSE!!!!
He sure does have a surprised look on his face. I can’t tell if he likes it or is surprised in a bad way. Well, they sure are one cute couple.
And about all the Mike haters- I really don’t care how it all turns out. Like I have any control over it. All the rage just litters up the comments section and is really annoying. It turns out however Taeshi has planned, and I’m going to accept that. When people disapproved of Gwen Stacy’s death in the Spiderman comics, they didn’t recall the comics. It was all worked into the plan. So if Mike finally gets back together with Sandy forever, I’m fine with that. If him and Lucy come together, I’m fine with that, too.
All else I can say is: beautiful art, crazy cliffhangers, and I can’t wait for Friday!!!
TheCountryBoy July 18, 2012, 12:00 AM EST.
$5 says it’s a new scarf, different color and or pattern.
Anon-Anon July 18, 2012, 12:00 AM EST.
I wonder what could possibly be in the box?
Peturd July 18, 2012, 12:01 AM EST.

@MissShellGiraffe How can it be handmade? She said she found it…
Fire in a hole!!!!!it might be TNT
jun July 18, 2012, 12:01 AM EST.
Maybe a childhood photo?
And what if Lucy was in it? >.>
Okay, now I really am dying.
TAESHI. NO CLIFF HANGERS D;
On the up side, I’m glad to have a break from the drama. No matter how temporary it may be…. ^-^;;
Didn’t Mike lose his blue scarf?…..
I suppose she might have found it…. surely not though…. >.=

Tom-the-Foxey July 18, 2012, 12:03 AM EST.
Probably a scarf that she found that’s the same color as the older one he used to wear. I am willing to bet this.

Sirius July 18, 2012, 12:04 AM EST.
You’re all wrong.
In that box is a secret string and if he pulls the secret string, it opens a secret compartment of the secret box! In it is an exbarrassing photo of Spongebob at the Christmas pa— Wait… Waaiit.
Silly me, why would it be Spongebob? It’s obviously an embarrasing photo of Paulo at the Christmas party.

Hiccupby July 18, 2012, 12:05 AM EST.
Not just a new scarf I’m betting it’s a blue scarf.
Cyph July 18, 2012, 12:05 AM EST.
Try reading the past chapters and find out what kind of gift that foreshadows this part
Mr. Happy July 18, 2012, 12:06 AM EST.
lol this is hilarious. don’t worry i’ll be here again in a couple of days.
supertails July 18, 2012, 12:06 AM EST.
People lets be realistic here…it’s obviously lube for being gay with Paulo nononono jk eh I’m pretty sure its a new scarf or like a little picture of them since they were little…or maybe it could be like a frekin go to hell from sandy with a disembodied middle finger for treating Lucy like crap or it could be the polar opposite good job mike for sticking it up hers! No but seriously I’m pretty sure it’s a scarf I mean I don’t even want to complain about this cliffhanger cuz its almost kinda predictable but then again Taeshi could totally throw a curve ball on me sooooo I’ll just shut up as not to jinx it and all that so yea…

Bun-E July 18, 2012, 12:11 AM EST.
Oh, man. This is SO Taeshi to pull a giant cliffhanger like this. I love it! xD You’re doing such an awesome job with this comic. I like the play-by-play of Mike’s expressions. It really gives it a nice cinematic feel.
Stevum July 18, 2012, 12:11 AM EST.
O shoot I just realized there could be nothing in the box and it could be a surprise kiss the moment Mike looks up in confusion! Oh sh*t sorry guys I ruined it all! Me and my big mouth!

starfighter105 July 18, 2012, 12:13 AM EST.
So, the comment I replied to was removed. I now bring you ponies.
That aside, I’m not too sure if Mike is happy surprised or angry surprised, it could go either way really.
Neospector July 18, 2012, 12:13 AM EST.
@headdesk i thought mike kept it in his locker.
i don't know July 18, 2012, 12:13 AM EST.
Sandy looks very happy that she “found it”, so the gift for Mike should be something very specific! Although he looks worried that it might be something expensive, that’s probably not the case.
Is it something we have never seen before, or is it more likely something coming back from the past? Taeshi sure likes to keep us in suspense!
Cavara July 18, 2012, 12:14 AM EST.
Surprise! Sandy reveals that she climbed the career ladder into
the porn industry. she gives Mike a first glimpse of her first
centerfold appearance in PlayCat. What will happen next? My
money is on her opening up her trenchcoat for a lil Maishul
Purin July 18, 2012, 12:21 AM EST.
Based on Mike’s reaction, I think it’s a photo from back when they were kids. It probably has Lucy in it if he’s so shocked. Or maybe it’s something that he lost, and Sandy found it.
Detective E-Cat July 18, 2012, 12:21 AM EST.
@Cavara the box is already open and knowing Teashi it might be the latter of those two.
i don't know July 18, 2012, 12:22 AM EST.
Maybe it a old photo or a 5$ pizza
PrettyLeia2 July 18, 2012, 12:24 AM EST.
I think it’s edible underwear.
Wong July 18, 2012, 12:25 AM EST.
I’m glad other people believe it to be a scarf as well. It’s a good thing too, orange is SO out of season.
I know you’re busy losing friends and dating models, but please do keep up with the latest fashion, Maishul.
JL July 18, 2012, 12:25 AM EST.
I don’t think it’s a scarf, or a hate item like a bomb, or, “Surprise! *****!”
It may be their childhood photos, when they were young with innocent love. He may be surprised to find out Sandy kept them all and decided to give them to Michael to love and cherish, or to keep memory of and enjoy it.
the cookies. July 18, 2012, 12:30 AM EST.

i think it’s a scarf
Blackheart July 18, 2012, 12:46 AM EST.
People it may be a cool gift but did noby read what sandy said. She said I bet ur letter is wonderful maishul. *shocked face* did u ever think he forgot the letter. Of course knowing mike he’ll act like its the end of the world.
LITTLELUCYBOW July 18, 2012, 12:48 AM EST.
Well then… I guess it’s time for me to flip over another table due to a cliffhanger. Dangit.
PlinaZ July 18, 2012, 12:49 AM EST.
He handed her the letter on the last page…
Stevum July 18, 2012, 12:51 AM EST.
Mike opens the box and it’s a picture of Rick Astley?… lol JK: too much of an award for those of us who are mad at Mike right now.
I think it’s most likely a piece of memorabilia or a new scarf like most people think, but Taeshi is always full of surprises. Might be a sexy piece of lingerie Sandy was saving. Whelllp… guess I gotta wait till Friday to find out! *Snuggles into pile of pillows and begins the wait*
Chinatsu July 18, 2012, 12:54 AM EST.
His old scarf?
Or just a new one possibly?
Order_66 July 18, 2012, 12:58 AM EST.
Hrm… Mike looks very surprised/shocked..
Maybe it has something to do with Lucy? I can only assume it’s something Mike has seen before or something he has owned.
Or maybe I’m just crazy and it will be another randomly colored scarf. I’m getting pretty tired of the same old orange scarf. xD
HimbeCat379 July 18, 2012, 1:02 AM EST.
its lucy’s bow splotched with her blood, thats why hes not blushing.

Really though it has got to be a blue scarf, what else could it be?
Dracain July 18, 2012, 1:50 AM EST.
I really feel like it’s going to be a blue scarf like his other one was OR it’ll be another scarf of another colour/pattern. n_n

It’s a d¡ck in a box! ;D lol watch Sandy turn out to be a dude
Mr.Antimike July 18, 2012, 2:06 AM EST.
My money’s on it being a blue scarf like the one he used to have. Remember, he never lost his old scarf, it just got nasty and he stopped wearing it.
That or hawt n00dz
Inukai July 18, 2012, 2:10 AM EST.
It’s Lucy’s heart. She met up with sandy before the show, committed suicide by ripping out her own heart for mike, and told sandy to give it to him as if it were from her. Poor, poor Lucy. Of course, if this happened, Mike’ll find her body and be like, ” Welp, I guess I don’t have to talk to HER any time soon..” and then Sandy would be like, ” MIKE! Stop poking Lucy’s corpse.. That’s Paulo’s job!”
Trolololololo July 18, 2012, 2:12 AM EST.
Whats in the boooox!?!?¡?!?
Shannon July 18, 2012, 2:12 AM EST.
i like how the first commentor thinks, that’s its either a scarf, or an old pic of Mike, Lucy, and Sandy, all together and HAPPY.
then again, it could be something totally different that will set Mike off
Here’s to a CandyCorn-flavored story development!
Candy Corn Lover July 18, 2012, 2:14 AM EST.
Either it’s a rocket fist starting up, or it’s a scarf exactly like his old one, or a happy picture of all of them together. Either way, Mike is going to be all gloom and doom the next page.
Kuro July 18, 2012, 2:18 AM EST.
The last panel where the background turns grey + his expression makes me wonder…. something that brings about a childhood memory of him and Lucy or a new scarf. That’s what i’m thinking.
eatedurtaco July 18, 2012, 2:19 AM EST.
Watch. The next page is him like “oh mah gawd!” with his eyes wide open. Remember, this is Taeshi, she’s gonna drag this out longer than a Dragon Ball Z fight scene. Don’t get your hopes up.
Nobody. July 18, 2012, 2:20 AM EST.
Wolftail’s list of guesses:
Wolftail July 18, 2012, 2:25 AM EST.
I like how Sandy is gorgeous with anticipation right now: making gifts can be dull when it becomes a chore, but when you “find it”, that little something that regardless of its value carries a personal meaning beyond the simple “courtesy called for a gift, so I grabbed you something”, then the moments when the recipients opens it and you can read in his eyes that he realizes are priceless. And they’re going to last till Friday!
Cavara July 18, 2012, 2:28 AM EST.
I think it’s another blue scarf (maybe different from the other one), as someone else already said.
and if it’s a scarf, it means that mike is gonna change again.
boh... July 18, 2012, 2:38 AM EST.
yeah, blue scarf, because… SYMBOLISM
perhaps the meaning of him getting a blue scarf will mean things will go back to the way it used to be when he talks to Lucy.
I’m sure someone has said this already, but oh well. friday awaits!
Memory Anemone July 18, 2012, 2:40 AM EST.
Is it wrong that I thought of “Se7en” with the whole “what’s in the box” mystery?

Phantom July 18, 2012, 3:10 AM EST.
Its a photo album of the childhoood memories they made and for the new memories to come!!!!!! I so got it I just know it!!!
Al3BEY July 18, 2012, 3:17 AM EST.
By the look/shape of the box, I’d say it’s a picture of the whole group, as kids.
Mike drooling over sandy, lucy [maybe actually smiling sweetly for once], and the rest of the gang, all in for one group pic, that’d be very cute.
I just hope MikexLucy does happen..
I do really like Sandy
but Lucy just seems like she’d be better for him, I dunno how, I just have that feeling..
SeeU July 18, 2012, 3:17 AM EST.
OMG!!!!!!!!! The suspense!!!!! Gwwwaaaahhhh!!!!!!
It could be a number of things!!! I’ll make a list of possibilities here:
1) A new scarf
2) Memorabilia from there childhood(things he gave her, pictures together, etc.)
3) Food. We all remember how he did get food from Sandy as children such as sushi.
4) Current pictures of herself.
5) Matching shirts (I <3 my boyfriend/ girlfriend type thing)
6) Jewelry for couples (like those necklace type things were it takes two necklaces to complete a heart- something like that)
[these next ones are possibilities that aren’t likely to happen but are still funny to mention]
7) Condoms. Because there fun to blow up and make balloons for parties. :|
8) His old scarf. Because she went all the way to Mike’s school, managed to go unseen by everyone who Mike knows(since he showed everyone a picture of Sandy), broke into his locker, and went all the way back home and got it washed and had it ready for when they would meet. Not to mention the fact she would have to make sure he wouldn’t notice that his scarf was gone, eventhough it probably wouldn’t matter to him anyway.
9) Things saying it was over between them. As much as I would like it to happen, we all know it won’t happen that fast… *sigh*
10) Carter. Because his Lucy senses were tingling and sensed Lucy was upset and that Mike caused it so he took out what was really in the box and put himself in the box, ready to beat the **** out of Mike for upsetting Lucy and hoping Lucy would notice his brave act and give him something in return like a hug or a kiss.
11) A white shirt with the word “JERKFACE” written on it in a red(possibly blood) that Lucy made and put in the box because Lucy also went to the fashion show just to put that in the box.
12) A picture of her kissing another guy because she’s cheating on Mike and got this box mixed up the another box (unfortunately, Sandy doesn’t seem like the type to cheat… Dang it!).
13) #10 except Carter thought Sandy was Lucy (like how he confused Daisy for Lucy) and was trying to get close to Lucy, eventhough it was really Sandy.
14) Like #12 except it has a bunch of stuff for girls(makeup, glitter, rainbows, ponnies, unicorns, etc.) because she mixed it up with a gift for her friend.
15) Like #10 also except it’s Daisy because she got mad at Sandy and wanted to lash out for all the years Sandy forgot about her.- Not possible since Daisy is too nice.
16) Mother Nature Calling Box (you remember that commercial were Mother Nature is trying to give some random woman her monthly “gift”).
17) #11 except it’s a picture of Lucy giving off the finger.
18) A trap that Paulo and David made to meet Sandy by replacing the real gift with an empty box so they could spring an attack. Paulo wants to meet Sandy to **** off">******** Mike while David was told since Mike is a Park Ranger, he should know information on his Flower Girl.
19) A letter put in by Sandy’s father/mother that if Sandy gets hurt that they will kill him and whatever Sandy got Mike.
20) Yashy because Yashy wanted to know what going on with Mike since it’s been awhile since he was over & the fact Lucy’s super upset. Yashy got in the box by moving out everything originally in the box into a trash can.
I hope you liked my sarcasm!
Aly July 18, 2012, 3:40 AM EST.

OmegaB July 18, 2012, 4:14 AM EST.
i’m betting it’s a picture of them when they were younger in a very special picture frame that she picked out that probably spells maishu or something similarly cheesy.
Luna July 18, 2012, 4:16 AM EST.
i believe it was fish, just like how they ate when they were little. plus, mike didnt have a blue scarf around sandy. maybe fish or a new scarf, i hope its green or purple.
Aydin Sarami July 18, 2012, 4:24 AM EST.
i really hope it’s a good surprise because sandy seems so sure that he’ll love it. just his face makes this whole thing really hard to read and extra suspenseful. i mean, if he ends up not liking the thing it may show sandy doesn’t know him as well as she think she does. i really hope this isn’t the case though. i really think they’re a cute couple.
Jade July 18, 2012, 4:40 AM EST.

Jayboy July 18, 2012, 7:44 AM EST.
This is just evil… making us wait yet another day to find out what’s in the box.
My guess is that it well be that childhood picture Sandy had in a previous chapter… the one where it kinda’ shows a day in her life.
But I’ll probably be wrong.
ANYWAYS… SOMEONE MAKE FRIDAY COME FASTER.

NOOOOOOO!!! I thought I would see what was in the box! I don’t know what it could be! Suspense is nice though, adds to the fun. I hope it isn’t something that will anger mike, like a khao manee (i think thats the spelling) puzzle or shirt or something like that. He prob would forget his promise to talk with lucy. But if he takes it nicely, that’d be cute. I’ll bet it is his old scarf.

So… I can see lots of you guys saying it’s a scarf. I also kinda think that too. But Mike’s face… I just can’t tell if it’s a “Oh my god this is awesome.” or a “What is this I don’t even” look… I can’t wait to see!

Could it be? could it possibly be the return of the blue scarf!
if it is, I’ll wonder if he’ll reject it for the same reason he ditched it the first time; because It reminds him to much of Lucy (same colour as her eyes!). did anyone else notice that the blue scarf was originally ditched just after Mike got back in touch with sandy and when he started falling out with Lucy?

Mike’s old, long lost scarf perhaps?
Milkfruit July 18, 2012, 12:11 PM EST.
Well, ok, so even if it /is/ a blue scarf…. I don’t think that means that Mike’s going to magically fall for Lucy again. That doesn’t happen. We get the symbolism because we’re reading it. As a character, he’s not going to look at the scarf (if it is a scarf) and be like “woah I totally just realized I’ve been hiding my deep emotions from myself. What kind of magic is this.” To /us/ the scarf is symbolic. I feel like it would just make him like Sandy /more/ if she got him something like that.
The picture: for some reason, I think this would upset him. Also it doesn’t make sense for Lucy to be in the picture with them - Sandy and Lucy didn’t really interact at all. It would just bring them back to the Lucy argument, and things would spiral out of control from there.
Personally I think these two are completely plausible, but I kind of want it to be something unexpected, like maybe a candy that she knows he likes or a personalized frame or something. I don’t know. I look forwards to finding out, though, haha.
Sandy is so well-drawn. She gets all excited and anxious and it’s wonderful. You can just tell she’s bursting with joy. What an excellent character.

I think people should start shipping Mike with fashion.
Haha but on a more serious note, he doesn’t look very happy with whatever Sandy ‘found’ for him… I hope he doesn’t freak out about whatever it is, and hurt her feelings…

I think it’s probably the blue scarf… which would be awesome since I’m sure most of us have guessed the reason he picked that color was Lucy’s eyes.

The blood is warmer, and much sweeter.
See Maishul, this is my neighbors, here’s one of my friends’,
Oh! and this one Maishul was hard to get! I had to find it right before the show to make this gift extra special!
See this one Maishul, is Lucy’s.
Sandy July 18, 2012, 1:35 PM EST.
Best Guess: It’s a blue scarf.
If it IS said scarf, HO MAN, is that gonna start some **** O_O

Crayon July 18, 2012, 3:20 PM EST.
All my money on my bet that what is inside that box IS HIS OLD SCARF THAT HE LOST.
I get the feeling that if it is his scarf that it will bring back all of his old memories of him and Lucy. My hope is that it will remind him of all the good times and life changing happenings that he, Lucy, and everyone else went through together and make him realize just how much of a jerk he’s been this entire time. But that’s just my wishful thinking.
Felix Rodriguez July 18, 2012, 3:27 PM EST.
Based on Sandy’s word choice, “once I FOUND it…” I believe it is something from their past. Something that has been previously stated in the comments, his scarf or a photo or of that nature. If it was something Sandy merely purchased she would more likely have said, “once I SAW it…”
But then again that depends if whoever wrote the dialogue for this page, Taeshi or Suitcase or whomever may have helped them, has the same line of thinking as I do.
But I doubt that since I put far too much thought into such things that it comes to a point where MY dialogue would eventually become unrealistic.
EDIT: Also, if she were in particular looking for a purchased gift, she would not have said, “I just HAD to…” since that indicates she did not plan to beforehand. Leading I and many others (though they may not have put as much useless thinking as I have) to believe the gift is an object from the past and not something simply bought.
Edit2: Then again with that comma… DEARGAWD SOMEONE STOP ME. D=
Edit3: No, wait, even with the comma it still suggests old item. I’ll stop now… I promise.
JustSAIYIN July 18, 2012, 3:27 PM EST.
I think it is Sandy’s ribbon. Anyone else notice she isn’t wearing her ribbon? I mean, think about it, the blue ribbon is a big part of Sandy’s look, it seems that she has always worn her ribbon, it would be a immensely special souvenir for someone you’re probably not going to see again for years.

To be honest I have no idea what it will be but I doubt it’s his old scarf, did Sandy even see him with that scarf? I thought it was back in the days he lusted for Lucy, but I’m sure its something special to help him remember her by.
Kit July 18, 2012, 6:14 PM EST.
If it really is a scarf, I am going to be horribly disappointed in Taeshi. Also, having a cliffhanger every few pages seems very lazy…
Also, to the people saying it’s a handmade gift, her ribbon or a ticket to see her, are you dense? You don’t ‘find’ items like that. And for those of you saying, “She’s not wearing her ribbon!!!11!1!01!!1!” Really? She’s at a fashion show. You really think she’s going to wear a blue ribbon with outfits that are specifically designed for the show? Don’t make me laugh. Would you wear a pale blue ribbon with something that would clash horribly with it?
Me July 18, 2012, 6:16 PM EST.
$100 says it’s a new, BLUE scarf.
Confident McMillan July 18, 2012, 6:26 PM EST.
I like the theory with blue scarf. It would add up to other theory I am supporting - you know, Mike confused with his feelings, trying to push Lucy away, only because he wants to stay sincere with Sandy. This was already supported with that one panel, when he’s looking at gamepad, and phone with troubled look on his face (I am so repeating myself). And this makes me really excited about his reaction. Though I’m fairly sure it would most likely end with boring “you don’t like it?” “No, I really like it, I really do : I” thing. Eh, this comic needs more characters that have anger managment problem… Speaking of which, when we will see Abbey punching someone with his fist of justice? Hope he won’t end up pussified, because Mommy is now singing in heavenly choir.
And since I’m talking about Abbey: seriously, why they’re trying to change him so much? There’s nothing wrong with rage, if it is focused on the right target. For example: there wouldn’t be anything wrong with thrashing wannabe-rape-cat mug. Only thing he should learn is how to pick situations, when his anger and violence are justified, and learn how to deal with different situations. For example: if he would slap or punch that bully, that was bothering his sister, it would be awwwright. But beating the guy up would be wrong, since he didn’t do much, and most likely he would learn his lesson after that. And then we have situation, when Daisy was sexualy assaulted by our oh so dreamy white cat. It might be unpopular point of view, but there’s only one way to deal with something like that. Pain. Lots of pain, you inflict on offender.
Well sorry for offtop. Just can’t stop myself, when I’m in ranty mood.
You’re interesting fellow. I must say you did good job with analysing this. I must say I’m rather convinced this might be indeed something from their past. Though I would really like to see Mike’s reaction to blue scarf, I do believe something from their past to be more plausible possibility. And not only because of how Sandy is speaking because of it. Blue scarf would complicate matters, make this meeting a little awkward. Though this would be interesting, I do believe it will be some sort of item from the past, that will serve as plot device related to a flashback. We still have 10 pages to go, and chapters are mostly focused on a group of characters. It’s rather unlikely that it will switch, not enough pages left. But it seems 10 pages are just enough for a flashback, after which they will be again all like “Dawwww I wuv you” which would be fitting ending to said chapter. So yeah, I think your theory is very plausible. Be sure to share your further thoughts here in comments section, since it’s high octane fuel for discussion.
Oh boy, I would like this one in form of comic.
Commander_Zero July 18, 2012, 6:32 PM EST.
…. I don’t think the point of a new blue scarf would be for him to magically fall for Lucy…. I think it would just symbolize his coming back into rationalization and hopefully some new maturity.
Ohh, for some reason I had a memory of it getting blown off in the wind or something….
It looks like you’re probably right though, :3
In that case maybe it’s just a replica, or a childhood photo.
Either is likely enough. ^-^;
Although, from @JustSAIYIN ‘s comment, I’m going to root for a photo. x3
Mike has a funny expression, so he either has started to open it, but hasn’t seen it yet, and is anticipating still, or Lucy’s in it somewhere….
headdesk July 18, 2012, 6:53 PM EST.
As I said: in my glorious oppinion he’s most likely confused. But that doesn’t mean, he’ll end up dumping Sandy. Predicting who he’ll end up with before this comic end, is like predicting what side of dice will you see, after it stops rolling. Though at this point it is unlikely he won’t stay with Sandy.
Commander_Zero July 18, 2012, 7:05 PM EST.
That wasn’t directed at you. ^~^;
There were a few people saying that if it was another blue scarf it meant that he would, without a doubt, end up with Lucy.
I was just saying in general that the original symbolism of the scarf was blue: nice, rational guy, orange: irrational, vicious guy. ^-^; so blue would just return it to rational nice guy….. Girls aside. ^-^;
headdesk July 18, 2012, 7:31 PM EST.

By the look on his face, his letter does not compare. either its something to do wth lucy or something. If it was something to do with lucy that would be perfect karma.
Who? July 18, 2012, 7:49 PM EST.
Wow, thanks for taking me seriously! =D I just want to point out, also, the size of the box. Second to last panel you can see it’s pretty thin, and I believe a scarf would not be able to fit in there without showing up in that panel. So, yes, I agree it would be VERY interesting to see its return, but the box’s shape and size (and thinness) suggest more of a framed picture.
The most difficult thing to analyze is Mike’s surprised look in the last panel. It could easily turn to either something positive or negative, there’s no real evidence how he’s feeling in the moment besides… surprised.
I DO believe a flashback is coming up. Taeshi seems very fond of them, and I’ve grown to tolerate and even love some. =D
JustSAIYIN July 18, 2012, 8:18 PM EST.
Ethan July 18, 2012, 8:18 PM EST.
Shoot, I can’t edit. I just wanted to point out that Mike’s lack of blushing in the last panel COULD lead to how he’s feeling… a drain of color could indicate he’s not happy with what he sees… maybe he’s even frightened.

Ok seriously everyone? Why are there so many Homestuck references? I mean, yeah, I love Homestuck, I’m a big fan and all, but really?
And to everyone saying it is a picture or a bow- Why would Sandy say that she ‘found’ these items? Wouldn’t she rather give Mike something more sentimental? (Not necessarily a scarf, but you get the point.. I hope. |D)

Omega July 19, 2012, 9:14 AM EST.
A new scarf, or a condom, or an engagement ring. Though I rather doubt the second one, and the third has a .01% chance of being the correct option.
Blossom July 19, 2012, 10:19 AM EST.
Is it me or am I the only one that still finds it strange that they haven’t even kissed yet?
Not even a simple kiss on the cheek has happened.
I mean, sure they haven’t seen each other in 7 years, but at the same time they ARE boyfriend and girlfriend and SUPPOSEDLY made it official some time back.. Didn’t they?
Pretty sure they did because that’s when Mike’s relationship with Lucy started going down the toilet… Anyway, I mean, if they are too nervous or shy to kiss, just one on the cheek will be a good starting step.
Unless Sandy realized she didn’t feel the same way with Mike as she thought she did…
-Gasps- Could this be Mike’s Karma blow!?
Ezra July 19, 2012, 12:39 PM EST.
@Ezra Have you ever met with someone you only talked to by internet or phone? It’s pretty awkward even if they trust each other a lot. It’s not that easy as just come and give the other a kiss even if it’s your boyfriend/girlfriend. The situation here doesn’t have enough “passion” for any to want to kiss. It actually has nothing to do with Sandy not feeling the same for Mike.
I like to think it is a new scarf but I bet Taeshi will surprise us with other thing.
Effie July 19, 2012, 1:09 PM EST.
That, and I don’t think people in relationships need to kiss every time they see each other to show affection, especially in stories. A plot moves much better if people who are in love don’t act like hormone-driven teens upon sight.
Now that was confusing, I’m not saying teen drama is a bad thing in this comic, I’m saying people don’t have a need to grope each other like people do in real life.
Neospector July 19, 2012, 1:23 PM EST.
I completely agree! (anyone has ever watched Clannad? Or even Korean dramas?) they rarely if ever use “kissing” or “handholding” but you still see the love and affection between characters. It’s not necessary.

I’m leaning more to an old photo instead of a scarf. Memories of good times - which is wonderful, remembering how they were as kids, without all the drama and angst they’re facing today. Judgin by Mike’s reaction, he might be stunned to remember that there WERE good times he had with everyone, Lucy included… could e the final blow that send this crazy kitty back to bein his old cheerful self!
Not saying he’ll be in love with Lucy, but at least he’ll recall why he was friends with her in the first place. That’s what I’m hoping for, anyway. :3

And because of Mike’s expression.
Akiriuu July 19, 2012, 8:50 PM EST.
It has to be his old blue scarf, I know it… It brings back happy feelings and nostalgia for both of them, so it has to be that scarf! It also explains why she was so excited when she “found” it.
