WELL MAYBE IF YOU LISTENED TO LANI TALKING YOU MIGHT HAVE AN IDEA MAISHUL
geez that boy
yeah sorry for the boring page this is the one i wanted to land on a wednesday when i did my blunder in the description BUT ANYWAYAYAYAYAYAYYYYY
WANT TO READ OTHER THINGS? I did a guest comic for “Peaches” which is made by a really cool guy and it’s very new so you can catch up to it really quickly and it uses multimedia and is really really fun and the music it uses is catchy! You should check out the guest comic, even though it doesn’t make much sense unless you read the first chapter. SO YOU BETTER. Check out the series!! It is very promising!!
You got your wish silly
To be honest is this breaking my heart taeshi I ACTUALLY FEEL BAD FOR MIKE This is ALMOST as soul ripping as ‘Just Beautiful’
GOD DAMN IT MIKE DO SOMETHING! BE HEROIC! SAVE HER DAMN IT!
Actually Nameless dude was http://www.bittersweetcandybowl.com/c75/p3.html

It makes Monday’s just that much better
TheRealSomeone(akaSomeone May 17, 2013, 12:00 AM EST.
Well, what did happen? I don’t know? How ‘bout you tell us Mike? Do you know?
Weeell…, at least Mike got his wish. No more Lucy. He should be happy. I can’t wait to see how the group reacts to this one. They’ll pick up on Mike’s guilt and/or joy eventually, and when they do, Mike’ll get what’s coming to him. This will be fun to watch.
Nikita May 17, 2013, 12:00 AM EST.
You were mean Mike, duh. Her parents probably just didn’t want her depressed as hell anymore.
Also I like how I was the only one among the first posters to actually type something more than just a letter.
Flavio May 17, 2013, 12:00 AM EST.
Yeah maishul! Gawd!
Legion May 17, 2013, 12:01 AM EST.
Pfft and this was pretty close after he apologized. At least she didn’t leave before he did.
Dakota May 17, 2013, 12:02 AM EST.
Mike, you were the last one to talk to Lucy(alone in her dressing) so just stay calm and don’t panic because the others might start asking you some questions(about what you were talking to her in private) and you need to answer them calmly… or else they’ll assume the worst and you’ll be running soon(actually you’ll be running anyways since you love it so much). Mike you have ears that are so great for hearing, so why don’t you listen to what the nice teacher has to say and maybe you might learn something… please? Maybe while you are at it you can run to Lucy’s house and hope she is still there(or maybe some clue that will lead you on an epic adventure to find her? … no? Well, that’s okay too .
supertails19 May 17, 2013, 12:04 AM EST.
Call me crazy here, but I think…and this is just a hunch…that he’s a mite blown away/guilt-ridden at this. I mean, it seemed like he just wanted to drive her away from him before, but I don’t think this is what he had in mind at all. Especially after his attempts to reconcile with her and all.
Oceanus92 May 17, 2013, 12:04 AM EST.
Well you DID say you wanted to start over, Mike. You simply never specified whether or not Lucy would be around for that.
Some Guy May 17, 2013, 12:04 AM EST.
Oh suspense, you are killing me
eagle May 17, 2013, 12:05 AM EST.
I wonder if they’re gonna visit her house after school….? I mean, to see what she has to say about what’s going on…

Oh-ho, this is gonna be so good.
KitKatMuffin May 17, 2013, 12:08 AM EST.
There is a life ‘reset’ button after all, eh Mike?
Hard to tell what hes feeling here. Seems almost complacent, and event a bit relieved to me. That or hes a doing a good job hiding any emotions.
As usual, I look forward to the only good thing about Mondays.
Fenfir May 17, 2013, 12:08 AM EST.

I…I really don´t mean to be rude! seriously! but…is it me or…are pages getting shorter each time, I know coloring takes time so I guess its just me….
lousika May 17, 2013, 12:15 AM EST.
Well we’ll have have to see, if they DO start asking questions, if Mikie can handle the questions, or if he’ll shift blame elsewhere, like at Tess’ party. >>
On another note, Mike, I can understand why you’re shocked. Like…you really don’t understand how much you devistated her. u_u The more I see you interacting with her and such, the depth that you completely wrecked her at, obviously has not registered with you. At all. So her suddenly up and leaving for no real apparent reason to you, especially after saying you wanted to try to patch things up, I can understand the shock. Where this is going to lead? I have no idea. u_u
Yaschiri May 17, 2013, 12:16 AM EST.
ITS ALL YOUR FAULT MIKE! I really don´t feel any emotion for Mike anymore…just hatred…you cant just express such awful thoughts to the point of wanting the death of who was your best friend and who just HAPPENS to have save your life…multiples times…
I really hate him…
Sorry dont take me wrong…I LOVE THIS COMIC! and taeshi you are so epicly talented since you where able to create many emotions in this story!!
lousika May 17, 2013, 12:18 AM EST.
I do believe he’s about to cry, from those eyes.

That will be the day!
No time like the present Mike.
TheRealSomeone(akaSomeone May 17, 2013, 12:24 AM EST.
Best…page…in the entire series…EVER! TO DATE!
Mike staring off into space with scribbly lines in bubbles!? I think I am going to exploded from how AMAZING THIS IS!
But seriously, I am done being an *** now. I get the sense that a flashback or something is coming on. You got the “What happened!?” and a close up on what I believe is a table or a chocolate bar falling out of the sky.
Maybe it’s Mike slamming his head on the table and blanking out, thus causing a flashback to occur. I DON’T KNOW!
Mike doesn’t look like he’s going to cry. He just looks dumbstruck and clueless, AS USUAL! Duh, my name is Mike and derp is my middle name. For reals. You got a heart of gold Mike, but you’ve got a head full of air, I am just saying.
Anyways, the next page should be just a massive closeup on Mike’s face with a large bubble screaming “WHAT HAPPENED!?” and the page after that should be a picture of Mt. Hiroshima exploding into a volcanic mess of magma.
That would win…ya know it would.
Blank On Purpose May 17, 2013, 12:35 AM EST.
Taeshi says boring, but this page makes me ANXIOUS FOR MONDAY’S UPDATE. It isn’t like the usual cliffhanger, yet it STILL feels like one, dang it!!!
Subaru May 17, 2013, 12:46 AM EST.
In reality, those little marks are the sounds of trombones, Lani is just practicing.
I’m sorry, that was very bad.
Neospector May 17, 2013, 12:54 AM EST.
Having apologised or not, he did say that he would leave the table and everyone would follow - resulting in leaving Lucy left behind. That was his plan, he even went as far as wishing her death. And now he’s shocked she’s transferring schools?
I’m starting to think Mike is playing stupid. But then again, he’s a ****** actor.
Yumikarp May 17, 2013, 12:54 AM EST.
I have a sneaking suspicion that she’s being sent away to a boarding school or something like that where she can get help, and get away from all the drama. Pages 3 and 4 of ‘Ten Seconds to Midnight’ show her mother and brothers discussing her needing help and her mother fretting over Lucy thinking she’s abandoning her, and Lucy asking if she has any say in it, whatever it is. Just wanted to voice that. I’m probably wrong though. That “what happened?!” threw me off
Anyway, I really do love Mike’s expression, and I wonder how everyone is going to react this this news and what they’ll do! I can’t wait to find out! The suspense!
XandyPants May 17, 2013, 12:55 AM EST.
NOOOOOO… NOT ANOTHER CLIFFHANGAH!!!!
ooIoo May 17, 2013, 12:57 AM EST.
Well… That ‘what happened’ could be the start of the group asking questions. It surely doesn’t seem like it coming from Mike’s mouth. If anything he’ still silent and shocked for some lame reason. o-o

Then you make awesome hilarious guest comics for the awesome comics
And this comic keeps getting better
CANT STOP WONT STOP
Wheat May 17, 2013, 1:33 AM EST.
Nobody posted this May 17, 2013, 1:35 AM EST.
Wow this chapter could have just progressed faster if the story gets to the point, all i have seen consist of boring backgrounds and noticed that it takes 6 pages to tell that Lucy is leaving the school and now future pages will probably be other classmates’ reaction that no one cares of
Future pages: oh yeah sorry guys I lied again hahahahahahha
Timonthy wee May 17, 2013, 1:42 AM EST.
Who cares. Still an awesome page.
XTR09 May 17, 2013, 1:54 AM EST.
Mike, quit looking so surprised and hurt, after all this is kinda your fault.
Ali May 17, 2013, 2:34 AM EST.
AND the Mike-hate is back. Not that I mind, I’ve not been particularly fond of the kid recently.
I’m more than a little shocked that he doesn’t know why. I mean, really. REALLY MIKE. I don’t even.
Unless…maybe someone who isn’t Mike is asking? It’s a possibility.
Don’t listen to them haters, Taeshi- I love the page, the artwork, the progression of the storyline, and the mounting suspense. And HATERS GONNA HATE
GingerPaws May 17, 2013, 2:42 AM EST.
Aaaaaaa…. You call it boring but I call it gut wrenching. ;A; I… I don’t think I’ve felt this anxious and needy for an update for a while! Bwaaah!! I have too many scenarios racing through my mind and they’re all giving me feelings I shouldn’t be having this early in the morning! xAx aaaaaaaaaaaaa—
Masu May 17, 2013, 3:20 AM EST.
“What happend?!” ……seriously Mike? You have to ask?!
DeathofInk May 17, 2013, 4:21 AM EST.
I actually think the artwork captures the feelings of the protagonist well. It gives a sense of.. space. A kind of void, that suddenly opens up.
It makes me feel sad.
On another note, Lani is seriously beautiful.
Adaon May 17, 2013, 4:30 AM EST.
I think it’s awesome that Washington monument had an cameo in last panel.
Commander_Zero May 17, 2013, 5:19 AM EST.
And so the fluff pages have made their triumphant return!
Stevum May 17, 2013, 5:22 AM EST.
Mike is totally puzzled, Lucy did not show sign that she was about to leave.
Instead, Lucy was seemed to be unusual.
Wait for the Monday and can get closer to the truth.
I’d like to bet $( (√((π^86.5 - 22/7)^(4 ÷ (64 ÷ 4) - 2^(-2)) + 90/(90 - 3 × 60)) × 10^(3^(2^5) + √8) ) that Lucy can be found at her home.
Doctor Nuclear May 17, 2013, 5:57 AM EST.
Mike seems much more emotional about Lucy’s leaving than I was.
Draven May 17, 2013, 6:10 AM EST.
Well, you better be careful what you asked for… Sometimes you’ll get exactly that… Still, I’m curious to see where this is going to take Mike in terms of how he feels about Lucy… hmm…
Cheshire Neko~ May 17, 2013, 6:45 AM EST.
why look so worried mike this is what you wanted right.
then again i don’t think he knows what he wants.
i don't know May 17, 2013, 6:45 AM EST.
To me, Mike don’t look that surprised
aim May 17, 2013, 6:48 AM EST.
and then they’ll all turn and glare at Mike~
lol probably not but I wish that’d happen…
imaginative monsters May 17, 2013, 6:56 AM EST.
I can’t wait to see Lucy at her new school =D
Lime Cake May 17, 2013, 7:01 AM EST.
This is probably why Lucy was so chill about them ‘starting over.’ Sorry Mike, I think it’s a little too late.
She probably just did all the things she felt she should have done before leaving.
1. Possibly made out with Paulo, (they would be such a cute couple now that he’s matured a bit, sigh…)
2. Remember how she was sweet towards Sue? I think that was her just wanting to be nice, and thank a person who she knows really cares about her.
3. Forgive Mike, at least, I think she did. Or get his forgiveness. I don’t know about that one.
and 4. being anything else she did that was slightly out of character for her.
I feel like it’s boarding school, please be a boarding school. Not some hospital.
CheshireGames May 17, 2013, 7:37 AM EST.
Maybe Lucy took the ‘starting over’ thing as she really NEEDED to start over. And thus, new life at a new school!
Caitlynn Moss May 17, 2013, 7:50 AM EST.
Why I feel that we will be “disappointed” again…
Doctor Nuclear May 17, 2013, 7:57 AM EST.
ERMAHGED IS MIKE ACTUALLY SHOWING SOMETHING OTHER THAN *********-EMOTIONS <
after reading latest 5 chapters again I’m having all these paranoidic ideas what will happen. TAESHI, CONTINUE ♥
A to the P May 17, 2013, 8:50 AM EST.
Huh? May 17, 2013, 9:04 AM EST.
She better have gone to another school for a good reason. No real parent would be like ” Oh no! My daughter is depressed because her crush doesn’t feel the same way, better change schools!” As if.
Marik May 17, 2013, 9:21 AM EST.
Well, at least we’ll be focusing on Mike this for a while as he starts to comprehend everything thats happening. Its plain to see that it will be hard for him as reality will hit him in the face. He might feel how his starting over speech wasn’t enough and that it was only the beginning. At least I think it is; wouldn’t it be interesting that Mike confesses and apologizes to lucy before or at the last minute? That’ll be very interesting.
Keyblade Dragon May 17, 2013, 9:54 AM EST.
Why when did Lucy go?! Well at least Mike only has to be worried that Dasie will try to flirt with him. But then again how will it make the group fell? Happy? Sad? OK with it? meh who knows?
Shira Hoult May 17, 2013, 10:18 AM EST.
no. did she decide? Well it can’t be that bad! I hope. by the way does anyone else think that Polo is cuter than Mike? I sure think so
I mean he is soooooooo cute!
Shira Hoult May 17, 2013, 10:44 AM EST.
“Lucy will now be attending the local school of performing arts. That way she can one-up Michaels supermodel girlfriend.”
Is what the scribbles say.
Draven May 17, 2013, 11:21 AM EST.
That would be! Indeed it would be.
It could be heartbreaking or heart warming, depending on how hard Mike tries.
TheRealSomeone(akaSomeone May 17, 2013, 11:22 AM EST.
So what Mike did to Lucy was wrong, wanting somebody to die is wrong but he has saved her life alot and he feels guilt meaning he does like her it seems to me Lucy and Mike got what was coming to them. Lucy abusing somebody to the point they don’t want to be near them, and Mike telling the abuser to leave him alone. Stop being so hard on him they were both wrong if you look at it from Mikes way Lucy has been hurting his emotions and physical body, he has told her he loved her and tryed to make a move but she rejected him and also she kissed him and then told him to get over her then we have Lucy who told her feelings to him while he had a girlfriend which was ok but then she went and asked who was more important to him that emotional abuse making somebody choose because you said your feelings I have nothing to say other then > Mike did something wrong once. Lucy did something wrong for years and never said sorry which cause the wrong thing Mike did.
State your Biz May 17, 2013, 2:49 PM EST.
**** Mike, you tell me.
You were the one who royally screwed it all up right when Lucy finally stopped being a bitch.
Connect the dots already kiddo.
commenting May 17, 2013, 3:00 PM EST.
Gaaaah! Cliffhanger! … Should have expected it though.
And anyways, well, it’s probably her family’s decision in direct response to the massive depression that you helped bring about by doing your best to convince her that she was unloved and worthless and pathetic.
So yeah, that’s what happened. As far as I can tell.
So… maturity moment too little too late unfortunately… Enjoy your life without Lucy. You’re getting exactly what you convinced her and yourself that you wanted… … Now either take it like a man and don’t backpedal like a liar and a hypocrite, or take it like a man and do whatever you can to fix things… … Or do something else and make us hate your guts more.
Allsmiles May 17, 2013, 3:28 PM EST.
@TheRealSomeone, and @ Keyblade Dragon. I agree completely. Also if that was to happen I want it with Mike on his hands an knees, with all of their friends and Lucy’s family watching on the sidelines, and having Mike completely break down, start crying and giving Lucy a true apology and him saying how sorry he is.
RPGnerd May 17, 2013, 4:15 PM EST.
STOP STALLING DANGIT!!! X(
I'll Eat Yourself May 17, 2013, 5:19 PM EST.
Curious as to why the name change but meh *Shrugs*
“with all of their friends and Lucy’s family watching”-RPGnerd
She could see as he is just putting on a show to save his hind and his conscious.
“completely break down, start crying and giving Lucy a true apology and him saying how sorry he is”-RPGnerd
Then Lucy just frowns and has angry eyes
What? it’s called karma
She probably would tell him to quit being a cry baby he still has Sandy. And then Mike will need a big ice pack for that burn
TheRealSomeone(akaSomeone May 17, 2013, 6:37 PM EST.
im looking forward to the cactus lucy will be replaced with. same prickly personality with 70% less complaints.

Aries May 18, 2013, 2:13 AM EST.
also, wow people went straight back to shipping MikeXLucy like crazy, i think that people forgot Lucy and Paulo were just making out AND Paulo dumped jasmine for her, so why are there not more LucyXPaulo shippers here?
Aries May 18, 2013, 2:15 AM EST.
am i the only one who wanted to see Lucy and Paulo making out?
imaweirdperson May 18, 2013, 2:16 AM EST.
Y U NO GO TO SKOOL LUCY?! is what generally everyone’s thinking..
thatoneguy May 18, 2013, 2:58 AM EST.
So, it is possible that Lucy won’t go to school any more, so does Sandy.
—I think that the comic’s location setting is mostly possible in California or Michigan, what about there?
Doctor Nuclear May 18, 2013, 3:41 AM EST.
Mike is worried about the shrinked Mexico on the map.
Support LucyxSandy everyone!
Nightkill May 18, 2013, 4:44 AM EST.
@TheRealSomeone. By “with their friends and family watching” I mean them being all ninja like and hiding in the bushes or something like that. With out Lucy or Mike seeing them. About name change, I just got tired of using my real name and threw on my X Box 360 gamer tag.
Also, yes that would burn and i would probably cry if that happened.
RPGnerd May 18, 2013, 9:48 AM EST.
Something out of topic:
Veronica is no taller than 160cm.
Comrade Ben May 18, 2013, 11:30 AM EST.
Hope Monday can come soon! Since the answer in FAQ is still “2014”, there is still a long way to go and this is not the end.
Well, a “Starting Over” is not so bad.
I hope that someone who works for this comic is good at Physics. Reason? I don’t know, either.
I was just about to say “Lucy is about 160cm tall.”…
It seems that I made a fool of no one but myself.
“I’d like to bet $( (√((π^86.5 - 22/7)^(4 ÷ (64 ÷ 4) - 2^(-2)) + 90/(90 - 3 × 60)) × 10^(3^(2^5) + √8) ) that Lucy can be found at her home.” —from another comment. Maybe I am able to pay it right now.
Doctor Nuclear May 18, 2013, 11:46 AM EST.
Good luck pulling off the bush hiding
More than balling of his I would like Lucy to do something that would surprise him. In a good way! Like something nice and unexpected.
TheRealSomeone(akaSomeone May 18, 2013, 12:31 PM EST.
@DoctorNuclear You must be really confident that Lucy wouldn’t be at her home. If she is at her home, you’d have to pay anyone who took your bet $9999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999 99999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999 99999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999 99999999999999999999999999999999999…

Is it possible for a comic to make me even more emo than i was in high school?!! I swear I’ve cried at every sad moment.
Alecks May 18, 2013, 2:52 PM EST.
I guess we’ve all been there at some point to some extent. The drama reminds me of when I was in highschool back in ‘99 & 00 before social media and the facebook ruined all our lives…
…that really shows my age doesn’t it?
anyhoo, forgive the ramblings of an old man
This is one of the best series’ I’ve read in a long time. If you & Soupy ever decide to consider making this into an animated series, that would be epic and I would buy it!

my first thought was “OH MY GOD SHE TRIED TO COMMIT SUICIDE”
Hehehe426 May 18, 2013, 7:40 PM EST.
First, I meant that I’ll pay that if Lucy is not found at home.
Then, you don’t need to go on any more, because
(√((π^86.5 - 22/7)^(4 ÷ (64 ÷ 4) - 2^(-2)) + 90/(90 - 3 × 60)) × 10^(3^(2^5) + √8) = 0 .

Y’know, i get the same thing when i go to my lectures. All i hear is ‘wah wuah wah wah wuuuh’.
I do feel that the last panel is lacking a bit of detail compared to the first ones. But you know me Taeshi, I LOVE you anyhow.
Bridgeotto May 19, 2013, 9:37 PM EST.
It’s been a long time since I’ve read last, and I’m glad I took the time to catch up. Your work and story is amazing, hope to see you and get a book signed at a comicon when I get a chance to go.
Mark May 20, 2013, 12:07 AM EST.
I’d love to try Peaches, but it really just doesn’t work for me, I have an iPad-1, no sound, no music, no narration, and the image is so big I cannot make any sense of it, there is no way to zoom out to see anything. I’m very disappointed. Your guest comic was very pretty, though there was no music playing for that one either. I am very sad. :sad:
