Huh, that didn’t take long.

This feels like she’s just gonna use him to make herself feel better over Mike just like in “Another Shoulder”

And clearly Paulo has learnt nothing from that encounter.

Come on Paulo this is not how a confession should go, if you make out now your confesstion will just be awkward.

This is either really good, or really bad for the two of them.

That expression. It is amazingly inconclusive. That expression is either showing a degree of shyness, or disinterest in the events at hand. I can’t even tell.

She just kicked the akward out the door though, and replaced it with… something? more akward? We shall see.

There’s SO MUCH we don’t know about this situation and it makes ALL the difference.

If she’s moving away or something, what does that say about her doing this? Is she ever going to break it to him? How and when? What happened with Agustus? Does she even have feelings for Paulo anymore? Does she even still feel anything anymore, or did she shut down her emotions to deal with Mike’s hatred? If these are her last days at the school (for whatever reason) this could be a ‘no regrets’ type of moment, which would SUCK for paulo.

All that asside, there is a possibility here that she’s being honest with herself and him here. She’s taking a risk, making a change in how she approaches relationships. That would be great! But somehow… it seems like false hope. Or a long shot at least.

We shall discover the truth eventually though!

I note the background change. It’s a daydream.
