The next few weeks are going to be a bit interesting in terms of BCB chronology, but let’s start off with a silly one-pager. You might feel a bit of déjà vu Monday.
Thanks for reading!
Wait, Mike and Paulo are friends? WHAT HERESY IS THIS? Also, I can’t imagine Mike could even stand having Paulo over at his house for more than one second let alone a week. Paulo’s going to wake up with a phone in his throat.
Also, that’s why god created unlimited call plans.
Way to go Taeshi, you didn’t leave us with a cliffhanger one a Friday.
Nikita August 17, 2012, 12:00 AM EST.
Lol owned, I think paula is going to have some explaining to do if he gets caught… *eats popcorn* an that face in the second-last panel is PRICELESS.
abowden August 17, 2012, 12:00 AM EST.
Oh Paulo! You naughty kitty. xD It’s nice to have a little comic relief after all the angst, Taeshi! I missed the antics.
CrumpledQuill August 17, 2012, 12:00 AM EST.
Paulo’s up to his usual mischief again.
ScrabMaster August 17, 2012, 12:01 AM EST.
Well, it sure is good to see those two get along. Hehe.
Kaito90 August 17, 2012, 12:01 AM EST.
I love you Paulo. For a second I actually thought he was just hanging out with Mike; good thing he was just using him.
Lush August 17, 2012, 12:01 AM EST.
Hahaha i think we all needed this
Rae Chan August 17, 2012, 12:01 AM EST.
lawl Mike and Paulo are friends?
ohno August 17, 2012, 12:02 AM EST.
Stevum August 17, 2012, 12:02 AM EST.
Haha! That’s just like Paulo.
The title of this chapter is intriguing. I wonder if this is going to be when they go back to school and everyone either joins Lucy or Mike? Obviously Mike and Paulo are having fun, so I guess we’ll just have to wait and see!
HimbeCat379 August 17, 2012, 12:02 AM EST.
xD This is a perfect page after the last chapter! It really brightens up everything! ^_^
The back of my mind is saying “for now” OTL
Anagha August 17, 2012, 12:02 AM EST.
actually, the deja-vu is already from the first i-phone bill
Cavara August 17, 2012, 12:02 AM EST.
Mike and Paulo in the same room without fighting…….. this must be a dream
DeathfromAbove August 17, 2012, 12:02 AM EST.
vivitv24 August 17, 2012, 12:02 AM EST.
oh my this was unexpected
Mego August 17, 2012, 12:03 AM EST.
Mike and Paulo being nice to each other? What sorcery is this?
HalfBreed August 17, 2012, 12:03 AM EST.
I’m glad to see a bit of comic relief. It’s nice to have a chance to recuperate before the next flood of dramatic content.
Oh Paulo, you little rascal!
Richthofen August 17, 2012, 12:03 AM EST.
IT’S A TRAP!!!
Subaru August 17, 2012, 12:03 AM EST.
It’s funny though, because Paulo probably only rang up half of that…
Neospector August 17, 2012, 12:05 AM EST.
Guys, Paulo was just using “hanging out” with Mike as an excuse to steal his phone and make long distance phone calls. Paulo has an ulterior motive; he’s not actually coming over to be all chummy with Mike.
Lush August 17, 2012, 12:05 AM EST.
oh Paulo I love you, so awesome! lol
Lucy August 17, 2012, 12:05 AM EST.
Gershnargin August 17, 2012, 12:06 AM EST.
Bahahahahahahaha!!! This is a fantastic “illustration” (if you’ll pardon the pun) of the dynamic that makes Mike and Paulo comics so darned enjoyable. Feels like the Acapulco all over again! That glorious double-edged vibe from every interaction, y’know?
Mamimi August 17, 2012, 12:06 AM EST.
I love the light-hearted comedic property of this. It’s heart warming and a nice relief!
Oh, Paulo, what are we going to do with you… <3
John August 17, 2012, 12:06 AM EST.
jun yang August 17, 2012, 12:06 AM EST.
like a boss. Paulo you are an evil genius that loves taking advantage of mike one day you going to push him to far.
Edit: this is an obvious sign of mike being lonely and needing company… serves him right.
supertails19 August 17, 2012, 12:07 AM EST.
j August 17, 2012, 12:07 AM EST.
And, i wonder what happened to the Ayu Beam. I remember seeing it in the early chapters but i never see it anymore. Was that just because the comic was more fantastical?
Gershnargin August 17, 2012, 12:08 AM EST.
CLASSIC PAULO. AMIRIGHT?
Tom-the-Foxey August 17, 2012, 12:08 AM EST.
Haha I love this! Its great! I also can’t help but feeling that Paulo has suspicions that Mike is the reason that Lucy is upset, so he’s trying to get all kinds of revenge. I could be wrong, but it would be awesome if he was. :3
Purple Platypi August 17, 2012, 12:09 AM EST.
i freaking love your comedy
1337c47 August 17, 2012, 12:09 AM EST.
@Lush: Why does one have to be mutually exclusive to the other? He can come over, have fun playing video games, and if he gets the chance, use Mike’s phone.
Floweramon August 17, 2012, 12:10 AM EST.
hahah it’s nice to see some happiness never thought it would be mike and paulo hanging out together i’m surprised there was at least 2 fruitcake comments from paulo on this page. but i’m so relieved to finally see a page and be like O my god the clouds are gone. and even though mike and lucy are my fav characters. it’s nice to see some others even though it’s only paulo. they both look happy even though mike looks a little guilty not at the mom scene but when talking to paulo. ok i’ll stop talking now BYE
littlelucybow August 17, 2012, 12:10 AM EST.
We all knew Paulo wouldn’t be that nice without a trap
Midstrike August 17, 2012, 12:11 AM EST.
oops ment there wasn’t at least 2 fruitcake comments from paulo
littlelucybow August 17, 2012, 12:11 AM EST.
Because if he wanted to hang out and have fun, he’d be with David. If I remember right, David has a phone Paulo could use, but he wouldn’t do that to David so instead he uses Mike. Jasmine went on a trip and Paulo suddenly wants to hang out with Mike? Nah, he’s just using Mike to abuse his phone.
Lush August 17, 2012, 12:13 AM EST.
This is really refreshing.
taNi August 17, 2012, 12:14 AM EST.
Hahaha! I must admit, despite liking the drama. This is exactly what’s been needed. More comic relief. The tension has been too high lately. It’s even affected the readers. Drama is good Taeshi, but once in a while the people need to take a step back and laugh with the comic. The readers follow the mood of the characters and tone of the comic. For this page, I humbly thank you.
Qsandas August 17, 2012, 12:15 AM EST.
Paulooooo your back! <3
Raxki August 17, 2012, 12:17 AM EST.
*sigh* Every time paulo gets a bit of redemption he once again proves what a total douche he is. Although i guess mike’s a bit of a ‘tard for leaving his phone laying around for someone else to mess with….again.
Anyhow great page Taeshi, glad to get a break from teen angst and all the drama for a bit.
strider August 17, 2012, 12:22 AM EST.
Puerto666 August 17, 2012, 12:24 AM EST.
I’m wondering how Paulo manages to talk on the phone for that long without Mike having any idea it’s happening. Especially a CELL phone, which I imagine Mike never lets out of his hands except rarely.
I’m also wondering what kind of archaic phone billing system still gives two patoots about long-distance. That hasn’t been an issue for years… How anyone would rack up $250 is beyond me, I mean that’s like 2000 minutes+ since any plans I’ve seen that don’t have unlimited minutes (rare), it’s 10 cents a minute or thereabouts as overage charge. I mean, seriously, we’re expected to think Paulo’s logged even just 15 hours on Mike’s phone, much less the 30+ that would add up to 2000+ minutes?
Maybe this woulda made sense if it was set back in 1995, when phone companies still charged for long distance…
Just sayin’, this gaping plot hole has interfered with my ability to cheer Paulo on in his shenanigans.
Doa August 17, 2012, 12:25 AM EST.
on behalf of everyone who reads your comment, shut the **** up and just enjoy it.
If your serious, see above.
If your being sarcastic, see above.
Order_66 August 17, 2012, 12:29 AM EST.
GOOD JOB PAULO! HAHAHA!
Also, this is an extra, so it could be taking place at any time in the story. I personally think it’s before Mike fought with Lucy, otherwise his mom wouldn’t be so schocked about the phone bill… (on acount of him calling his GF every 5 minutes).
@Ohno Mike and Paulo have always been friends from what I can tell, its just lately they’ve been distant on acount of Mike’s distraction with Sandy (and the fact Paulo is more concerned with his LaDiEs right now.) They DO sit at the same lunchtable every day… It’s just that Taeshi never really covered how they interact in an “out of school” scenario.
Chinatsu August 17, 2012, 12:31 AM EST.
PAULO I LOVE YOU.
Kylie August 17, 2012, 12:42 AM EST.
Maybe Jasmine’s not on AT&T? We know Sandy is.
Unless specified, BCB chapters are chronological.
SuitCase August 17, 2012, 12:50 AM EST.
….I got nothing on this.
Anon-Anon August 17, 2012, 12:53 AM EST.
Jazz is going to come back one sexy beast.
Telta August 17, 2012, 12:54 AM EST.
He didn’t get the phone till the scarf change from blue to yellow. This is after Sandy gave him the new blue one. Paulo is taking his own revenge on Mike for Lucy . Still……Mike/Lucy will happen in the end…in 2014ish
Houto August 17, 2012, 12:54 AM EST.
Aww I really like this, something about Mike and Paulo being buds I just really love, espeically when we consider how much of a kinda rocky past they have. This is just incredibly cute and cool at the same time, and full of mood whiplash consider last chapter, but this is a wonder heartwarming moment still.
Leaving_a_Comment August 17, 2012, 12:55 AM EST.
Oh, that Paulo~
Also, retcons on Monday? I hope it’s nothing huge. I kinda like how things are now.
Jessica U. Ingmann August 17, 2012, 12:59 AM EST.
Awesome, without knowing it Paulo is getting back at Mike for what he did to Lucy
Kyubi Kusanagi August 17, 2012, 12:59 AM EST.
behold passive agresiveism. way to go paulo you diabolical genius
huntress_RVW August 17, 2012, 1:00 AM EST.
Mike August 17, 2012, 1:08 AM EST.
I too was confused with Paulo and Mike’s friendship. It was only a few weeks ago i discovered that they ”respected” each other while reading the BCB relationship chart. Based on their interactions in earlier chapters you would think they’d get along terribly. I think it’s a good thing that they’re friends, though.
Memory Anemone August 17, 2012, 1:12 AM EST.
i was wondering why mike and paulo were friendly toward each other… and it all makes sense, now.
apparently veronica drank something she shouldn’t have and got into her stephenie meyer mode of falling in love with the equivalent of twilight’s edward in her comic, and decided to do something to make him seem “cool”, again.
well, since running up other people’s phone bills and doing generally awful things to them and ruining their lives is considered “cool”, i guess i’ll go beat someone’s kid like a drum right in front of them while grilling their dog for a barbecue… because you know, that’s totally awesome and everything.
all the COOL kids like to commit mass genocide on the weekends, followed by a ritualistic satanic summoning.
Thanatos August 17, 2012, 1:15 AM EST.
Boo August 17, 2012, 1:17 AM EST.
Thanks Taeshi, we all have been waiting for some good comedy.
Wolftail August 17, 2012, 1:46 AM EST.
Good job, Paulo. xD
Nissie August 17, 2012, 2:57 AM EST.
Poor Mike I think the readers in general are quite happy with the events that transpired here today - and no cliffhanger Friday. That means they can spend the time they would typically spend pondering what’s yet to come thinking about how Mike’s gonna get whupped for wasting money which Paulo actually spent on a phone bill. Perfect one pager.
Crayon August 17, 2012, 3:00 AM EST.
= /)^3^(\ awesome !
Zero August 17, 2012, 3:04 AM EST.
Wow, Lucy’s obsession and back up guy, friend, while she’s on the edge of suicide. Awesome!!!
Slenderman August 17, 2012, 3:07 AM EST.
Paulo gets all the bithces. Even the sad scarf-wearing ones.
Bull363 August 17, 2012, 3:15 AM EST.
i gonna kill paulo! i really hate that person abuse the other things to the others
Jlaw August 17, 2012, 3:23 AM EST.
Oh Hey Mikie,,
missing your “rude, insulting, annoying, competative” gaming
Also, to the kids taking the Paulo-using-all-Mike’s-minutes-and-raking-up-the- bill thing seriously…. chill guys, it’s supposed to be a light-hearted break before we move on. Why so serious? -facepalm-
anon August 17, 2012, 3:23 AM EST.
Mike’s mom is the irresponsible one, she didn’t even check the list of numbers called. I doubt Mike will be making calls to Jess.
Jack August 17, 2012, 3:28 AM EST.
So I’m guessing at this point in time Paulo isn’t aware of Mike’s recent mistake?
Also…New hope for MikexPaulo excluding the last panel!
Dnite August 17, 2012, 3:48 AM EST.
This page may have meant to be silly, but it still shows how much paulo cares bout jasmine
nooneatall August 17, 2012, 3:51 AM EST.
Why does Mike wear his scarf in the indoors
EricKm August 17, 2012, 3:54 AM EST.
I could swear I heard evil laughs from the fandom section but it must be just my imagination.
Knux-the-Killer August 17, 2012, 4:07 AM EST.
Mike is such a lucky guy to have Paulo in his life! o3o
Tarri August 17, 2012, 4:59 AM EST.
Paulo and Mike are friends,
Paulo and David are enemies,
even though Paulo and Mike are friends they fight
and even though Paulo and David are enemies they walk together side by side
And thats what Teashi wants
Reader August 17, 2012, 5:06 AM EST.
Seriously, someone tach Michael to take better care of his phone.
Unless he wants to have David sexting his girlfriend sooner or later!
Cavara August 17, 2012, 5:28 AM EST.
SOMEBODY didn’t get the unlimited plan…..

MikeHater443 August 17, 2012, 6:31 AM EST.
Keep your friends close, and your enemies closer!
Your friends are there to test your resolve, and it’s HEALTHY to shout at them! It’s not arguing, it’s debate that leaves your throat sore from screaming!
Your enemies are really plotting your downfall, so you HAVE to laugh at their jokes or they’ll DESTROY YOU! So laugh, and plot ways to destroy them as they relish in their victory at decieving you enough to make you laugh. Also laugh on the inside that they really think they’re funny with those old jokes.
This is what civilized people do!
< /sarcasm >
Biblioholic August 17, 2012, 6:46 AM EST.
Also, this is hilarious and Michael’s mother is quite lovely when she is angry.
Biblioholic August 17, 2012, 6:53 AM EST.
I may be completely lost as to when this happened and why, but I am just eating up Mike’s mom screaming at him because of something Paulo did. xD
follarch August 17, 2012, 6:59 AM EST.
how can he have a smart phone without unlimited min?
Fluffy August 17, 2012, 7:14 AM EST.
This is when Michael calls his service provider and tries to argue he didn’t make that many calls, so there’s no way that his bill should be that high, and there’s no way that he’s paying for it…
… I work as a CS rep for Virgin Mobile. Erry day of my life this happens. Too bad for Michael, there’d be nothing we could do about it! As far as we know, he would of used those minutes! (Although finding out it was just Paulo using them probably wouldn’t change much. They were used minutes. Period.)
Lumi August 17, 2012, 7:43 AM EST.
………. this doesn’t make any sense… Mike and Paulo HATE each other… wtf
Lucyluz August 17, 2012, 8:40 AM EST.
1. doesn’t Paulo look much older then mike?
2. Smart move you cheeky cat
yuyupiece August 17, 2012, 9:28 AM EST.
MikexPaulo shipping is go!
Pokelova August 17, 2012, 9:29 AM EST.
First thing first: Wow I never seen Paulo and Mike play video games before, thats cool. That is so funny how Paulo is secrectly calling Jasmine and now he’s going to owe Mike money. What will happen on monday I wonder…
Starkeyblade August 17, 2012, 10:01 AM EST.
Yay no angst at the moment!!! But I can see that as a wave coming to crash at any second
Cloy552 August 17, 2012, 10:10 AM EST.
Lol paulo is really getting mike for what he did but how does he find the time even over a week to rack up that bill is it like a dollar a min?
D.inR. August 17, 2012, 10:28 AM EST.
Paulo treating you nicely? Are you wondering why he’s been so friendly? The answer is simple: he has ulterior motives.
Xenos August 17, 2012, 10:39 AM EST.

At first I was like “wasn’t Paulo the one that would barely care if he killed Mike?” and then I was like “ohhhhh”.

That was heilarious. I be all fut yeah cuz i be stealin comments from you grammar sucks but still its funny good break from all the depression
SunWolf August 17, 2012, 12:15 PM EST.
Bwahaha! Nice one Taeshi!
Spiritwolf15 August 17, 2012, 12:17 PM EST.
Oh Paulo. How inconsiderate! Hahaha, but I had to go back to make sure I hadn’t missed a page; it was such a sharp difference!
Shi-chan August 17, 2012, 12:29 PM EST.
nice one paulo , you are the boss, a little humour after the thing with lucy u.u, only hope next chapter a more bright one
Knight-K August 17, 2012, 3:51 PM EST.
MY YAOI SENSES ARE TINGLING
No but srsly, if Paulo gets found out….

@SunWolf This page is ducking g hallatious. Taeshi is a genuis
Pie August 17, 2012, 3:54 PM EST.
And this, my friends, is what one would call subtle revenge. Paulo is an evil genius.
Vega August 17, 2012, 4:39 PM EST.
haha, Paulo you sneaky thing you xD

so first page of a mikeXpaulo chapter ok cool
hw August 17, 2012, 7:02 PM EST.
Is it bad that I actually ship Mike and Paulo?
I mean, when I saw that you made a “MikexPaulo” badge, I was filled with laughter. I’ll make sure to get it if possible.
ClaudiaTBB August 17, 2012, 7:26 PM EST.
wow this feels really weird seeing paulo and mike cause u never really see them hang out alone together by them selfs its either lucys with them or some one else
pie335 August 17, 2012, 7:51 PM EST.
btw mikes mom is really ****** off
pie335 August 17, 2012, 7:56 PM EST.
I fricken love Paulo for this xD
Knuc August 17, 2012, 8:17 PM EST.
They must have Verison
Slenderman August 17, 2012, 8:22 PM EST.
ha take that mike u ******* u deserve it
thatguywithwings August 17, 2012, 8:59 PM EST.
Yeah, ‘cuz there’s nothing so lighthearted as abusing Mike. It’s so funny.
If the only way to get any comedy is through using a character as a punching bag, maybe there’s a problem.
NotLaughing August 17, 2012, 10:14 PM EST.
Ahaha! Thanks Taeshi, always nice to have a break from all that drama and angst
SaphiraN August 17, 2012, 11:27 PM EST.
Whoo hoo! Go Paulo!! Serves Mike right… am I the only one who strongly dislikes him for what he’s done to Lucy? And I mean… he didn’t JUST tell her to back off. He crushed her, then acted as if it was all next to nothing! (Yes ik he did more than tell her off in the last chapter. So so so much more)
Do more evil Paulo :3
Dakota August 18, 2012, 12:42 AM EST.
Oi Dakota, you must be new here! Let me direct you to the ‘Mike-hate’ club.
Nanai August 18, 2012, 1:52 AM EST.
Oh god, Taeshi, please not another retcon. Those of us who understood retcons had a hard enough time pointing it out to others the last time you did it. But, it’s your comic, so you can take it anyway you want. If it is another retcon you’re hinting towards, we’ll try to help others with the transition (Using the last time it happened as an example, there will be those that don’t understand past plotlines will get changed).
welcome to the mike haters club, allow me to introduce myself. i’ll be one of the ones you’ll probably be arguing with alot if you’re active in the debate. (i’m an avid mike/sandy defender)
strider August 18, 2012, 2:50 AM EST.
This page if Paulo found out the latest with Mike and Lucy.
Paulo is mad for a moment but suddenly realizes a key thing about last time Lucy was made unbelievably sad by Mike. They nearly had sex. He says “Oh gosh, I just remembered, I gotta go do sumthing! Paulo has more love with Lucy, Jasmine dies in a car crash on the way home, (not like i want her too, it is necessary though) And Mike is grounded to Haley’s room for a month long sleepover because of the phone bill. That sounds like a fitting punishment.
Masonery August 18, 2012, 7:08 AM EST.
Now Mike’s Mommy, take away his cellphone as punishment and give Sandy the opportunity (she needs but doesn’t know she needs) to find a new guy during her time away from Mike. 8D
I can dream! Sandy deserves a nice guy who actually lives NEAR her. Plus, it’s just my opinion, but I just think it would be more realistic if she found a new guy, especially since she’s a model an’ all. Mike is not the only nice guy in the world. Actually… since he’s not a nice guy I take that back. There are actually nice guys out there and she deserves one of them. That’s what I meant.
Last but not least… this is why I adore Paulo.
Lunacy August 18, 2012, 8:38 AM EST.
aaaaaaand this would be a good example of why I don’t like Paulo. Then again I do feel like Mike just needs a new group of friends in general. But I have felt this way since Lucy/Paulo decided Mikes old blue scarf was a good substitute for tissue papper.
Very simbolic of their friendship wouldn’t you say? Oh this item that you have on you everyday and clearly cheerish, well good enough to blow my snot into. Aren’t we the best of friends teehee.
And now we see it all over again with the phone.
?!? August 18, 2012, 9:13 AM EST.
Dat face in panel 5…. Oh Paulo. You planned this.
Blossom August 18, 2012, 10:44 AM EST.

@KittyXoXo: lucy is a Khao Manee. i think it says it in the about section. Edit: yep.
supertails19 August 18, 2012, 1:34 PM EST.
Been a while since I caught up on my BCB reading, but I’m loving the progress the story’s gone through and I can’t wait to see the next arc
MAKE HASTE, WE MUST KNOW THE FATE OF THE BILL KEEPER
AleX August 18, 2012, 3:24 PM EST.
<3 this entire comic so muuch. so relatable. this page is classic humor, and it stimm makes me laugh.
Sam August 18, 2012, 3:49 PM EST.
I love Michael and Paulo scenes!
Kai The Koi August 18, 2012, 6:49 PM EST.

Nicholas August 19, 2012, 1:05 AM EST.
well this is a coincidence… before this page was released, CF.ph introduced the new “buddy system” to us… >.

Doboromon August 19, 2012, 2:46 AM EST.
This has happened to me before. I would sell Paulo’s organs and use that to pay off the bill.
FreakKitten August 19, 2012, 7:54 AM EST.
Don’t worry about the minutes; I got us covered…
No! You think I’d use someone else’s phone? It’s not David’s, relax…
Not Lucy’s either. I can’t use a phone from somebody who’s suffering from a bad breakup! Keep guessing, maybe you’ll get it.
GUEST August 19, 2012, 9:41 AM EST.
Man I do like the page you posted, I simply cannot remove the fact that Lucy and Mike are just not friends nor Gf’Bf… I really hope something can happen with Lucy X Mike… It’s always been there and I simply can’t put that away…it’s been a year and it’s so easy for Paolo to get to her but it’s never easy for mike…I just want a happy endin right here…
John the Pro August 19, 2012, 10:09 AM EST.
While this is a breather, it is more like a wilful slap of irony to the face of all those predicting a heated showdown between Paulo and Mike. Alas being foreseeable, it still retains a humorous quality, nonetheless.

I find it funny that people keep on the hopes of Mike/Lucy happening, when the very creator of the comic has said it will never be~~~
Any-hoo, against Lachdan’s comment, I don’t find this a “slap of irony to the face”, as Paulo does not know why Lucy is upset so it going to keep up the same friendship with Mike as he’s always had.
I’d like for Paulo to possibly have a word with Mike, but I really don’t want him to like, kick Mike’s butt or anything. The end of the last chapter was good for Mike, just something calm to begin to have Mike feel bad for what he did. Not someone screaming, “You’re a peice of -you know what-!”
But I hope something much the same as what came from Lily comes from Paulo. In more of a Paulo way though. Something meaningfull that actually lets Mike know, “Wow, people actually care for Lucy and don’t just put up with her because they are my friends, they are Lucy’s friends too.”

Thanks Taeshi! I’ll be looking forward to it!
I know I coldve used Sandy’s face but I refuse. I dislike her for taking Mike away from Lucy and causing him to break her heart.

I can’t tell if Paulo’s deliberately using his phone a lot as a sort of revenge, ( does he still question if Mike caused Lucy’s grief? ) or if he’s legitimately just in love with Mike’s iPhone…

After looking at a lot of the comics, studying the characters and analyzing peoples opinions I am astonished to see how many Lucy supporters are out there. There must be 10x as many Lucy supporters as there are Mike supporters. And my 2 cents is that should Mike have ignored Lucy like that when she told him that she loved him? No. That was the worst move he ever made in his life.
If anything he should’ve been there for her as a friend and try to show her that there are plenty of other people out there that AREN’T HIM. But it isn’t entirely Mikes fault. Okay Lucy may have been insecure but she should’ve never thought about hitting people to avoid expressing/opening up her feelings. She should have just sat down with Mike and told him why that she did all this all these years.
Now because of their actions (Mostly Mikes by the way) Mike is going to go under character development and slowly realize overtime on what he said to her that night, and then what he did to her the past few months. Eventually the guilt will be ever consuming and Mike will try to re-friend Lucy because he has realized on how much of a bloody tosser he’s been to her.
Not only that but i fear for Mikes being. Eventually all oh his companions are going to find out and possibly do something rash out of Lucy’s protection. Paulo has a GIANT crush on her and Tess can get “Overprotective” over Lucy as well. Not only that but we’ve seen how angry abbey can get just by reading Daisy’s. He could flip out on Michael, it could be just Paulo or it could be Tess. All three of them could confrot him about this “issue” that Michael created and Michael can’t hid it forever.
Hell, everyone’s probably going to learn on what happened in about one chapter or two so he doesn’t have much time to fix the mess he made before “It hits the fan” Hopefully Michael will fix things before he runs out of time.

Dick move Paulo, but this does bring up a question
How depressed will Micheal be if he can’t contact ?
