HE WAS SO CLOSE TO GETTING OUT OF THERE UNSCATHED DAVID
p.s. Still wondering what does the rose say.
HongKat April 2, 2014, 1:00 PM EST.
Oh. There you are, David.
gardnaeden April 2, 2014, 1:00 PM EST.
And to interrupt paulo trying to think we have david
~~ April 2, 2014, 1:01 PM EST.
Oh David you.. You silly silly dog… And Paulo , you need not Lucy . All you need is Rachel , she is your perfect mate 8D
SeaRiver April 2, 2014, 1:01 PM EST.
Thank you David.
A guy April 2, 2014, 1:03 PM EST.
That was a new twist from David. Oh David… breaking the ice that rascal.
Keyblade Dragon April 2, 2014, 1:06 PM EST.
Shut it Dave. The world is not like your story from before. GET OVER IT!!!!!
josh April 2, 2014, 1:07 PM EST.
Well Paulo. I think you should make a decision.
And David lol
Jonas97face April 2, 2014, 1:07 PM EST.
I’ll never understand David’s outbursts.
Triniking April 2, 2014, 1:10 PM EST.
Shut up! David!
Fefex April 2, 2014, 1:11 PM EST.
I want to see them get together, and adopt!
I’m adopted, and even though I’m not related by blood my parents love me, and I love them. They gave me a wonderful life.
Nicole April 2, 2014, 1:13 PM EST.
Never thought I’d be one to say this…
David, GO AWAY!!
EDIT: Those lockers are huge in panel one. They weren’t kidding about fitting an entire person in one.
gardnaeden April 2, 2014, 1:14 PM EST.
So it was her brother. Well played Taeshi . And paulo has fallen for those puppy dog eyes it seems.
Blue fox April 2, 2014, 1:14 PM EST.
When even a fool such as David gives you that stare…
Grey XIV April 2, 2014, 1:18 PM EST.
Man I knew it, I knew Daisy was gonna get this messed up by putting the wrong kind of message with the flower!
At least she meant well. Good luck Paulo!
Emi April 2, 2014, 1:19 PM EST.
Hmm… I think that something happened between Abbey and Daisy guessing from where David’s gaze was looking at. Yet, I agree that I would have loved to see if Paulo was going to be sincere about the rose or not.
But yeah, I bet that David was looking at Abbey and Daisy and something happened. Wondered what was it though… Well, probably Daisy failed, but how?
Friday dear, arrive soon!
PS: The “oreo” cat is named Matt. Aaron is Rachel’s real blood-related puppy lil’bro. Go back to Pillow Talk: http://www.bittersweetcandybowl.com/c63/p21.html
Teh Lvy! April 2, 2014, 1:22 PM EST.
David. Stop before chaos ensues.
SplatterCandy April 2, 2014, 1:22 PM EST.
Chaos is always ensuing
Triniking April 2, 2014, 1:41 PM EST.
No, she said Aaron’s her only brother, and that guy is named Matt.
Just close friends it seems.
Xiro April 2, 2014, 2:03 PM EST.
@ TehLvy! Aw. It seems I misunderstood it. She dose only have the one brother. Matt is just a super good friend like I was thinking.
But paulo is still falling for those puppy dog eyes. He wanted to explain that Daisy sent the rose without him knowing as a thanks for helping her with her love problems. But one look at those cute puppy dog eyes and he couldn’t bring himself to tell her he had nothing to do with it and was just wanting to take the credit. I don’t think Rachel would really care who sent it as long as paulo actually felt the way the note said.
Blue fox April 2, 2014, 2:05 PM EST.
Has anyone else realized that David’s OTP is Daisy/Paulo
Like he does everything in power to get these two together
Whiskey April 2, 2014, 2:10 PM EST.
I wonder what Aaron thinks about his sister’s healthy sexual life.
Anon April 2, 2014, 2:18 PM EST.
Lucy x Paulo shippers must be panicking like crazy after this page.
Better get into your subs and launch those torpedoes, because this ship is looking steadier by the pages.
Again, I am all for Lucy x Paulo because they got the heavy I-just-want-to-bang-you-like-crazy vibe, but for a more mature and steady relationship, I really think Rach x Paulo is the way to go.
I am also not surprised by David’s outburst. His unusual manner is very usual for him. It’d actually be strange if he acted normal for once.
Blank On Purpose April 2, 2014, 2:18 PM EST.
awww paulos and Rachels watching in their eyes thing was really cute <3
and Matt is just a close friend to her?
Ok and david seems to look in a whole different direction, maybe to abbey and daisy? Or was that just his inner PauloxDaisy shipper?
Tails April 2, 2014, 2:33 PM EST.
……. I’m still gonna call him Oreo.
Huh? April 2, 2014, 2:34 PM EST.
I don’t ship at all, i just simply want Lucy back…
Eko April 2, 2014, 2:40 PM EST.
What I think he meant to say: COME ON!! DAISY WAS RIGHT THERE WHEN YOU “WROTE” IT!!
Pyro April 2, 2014, 2:41 PM EST.
So that’s the guy with the broken arm?
Osiris April 2, 2014, 2:42 PM EST.
@Black On Purpose
Yeah but he’s usually so chill about everything. I mean maybe some times he gets like that in the ask roseville high posts, but those aren’t in the main comic. Or maybe he has in the story and I don’t remember
HelTH April 2, 2014, 2:55 PM EST.
Silly ol’ David, breakin dat ice.
On another note, what did the rose say? Paulo, if you really love her, you’ll tell her. As long as you both are happy
Marble April 2, 2014, 3:07 PM EST.
Gabba April 2, 2014, 3:11 PM EST.
WHOA I’VE NEVER SCROLLED DOWN COMMENTS LONG ENOUGH TO SEE I CAN POST ONE TOO. AWESOME.
Anyway, Daisy, what did you do. >_> Seriously did Paulo just have a hole dug out for him?…
@Osiris I think it was explained up earlier in the comments that the cat is named Matt and Aaron is the kid puppy who had his arm broken. They’re probably just friends.
FreeFallingUp April 2, 2014, 3:14 PM EST.
Rachel’s so adorable in this page!
Skylar April 2, 2014, 3:55 PM EST.
Who’s Aaron? Also, this only encourages Snoopy/Mr.Peabody x Rachel
Las Palomas April 2, 2014, 3:56 PM EST.
My god. David that face… You are amazing lol
caustic dreams April 2, 2014, 4:03 PM EST.
David why do you ship Paulo x Daisy so hard? Maybe he just wants all his friends to hook up and secretly hates people he perceives as outsiders to the original group.
Seoq April 2, 2014, 4:41 PM EST.
Those panel 1 to 3 lockers are the size of a Japanese apartment.
Gnervs April 2, 2014, 4:41 PM EST.
HEY WAIT A SECOND! Rachel does have a legit, blood brother. From the early arcs before Taeshi started the “Starting Over” story arcs. Her brother got hurt by Tess’ old jerk of a boyfriend and that’s why Rachel had such animosity towards Tess, at least until she learned to like Tess as a friend. What happened to her brother?

He could still be gay.
Sanitarium April 2, 2014, 5:14 PM EST.
Whyyyyy why why why why I really dislike this! I don’t want Paulo and Rachel together… it’s just… not right. Paulo is being wishy-washy, I doubt even he knows what he wants anymore, the only thing he is always being “sure” of is that he really likes Lucy, but he keeps on going after other girls, then going back to Lucy then another girl and it’s all a mess. He needs to make up his mind either he forgets about Lucy once and for all or stops being messy with his relationships…
On the Rachel matter well… she is so promiscuous… I don’t know if it would come up alright.
Vanilla April 2, 2014, 5:20 PM EST.
@Vanilla Don’t worry it won’t last, Paulo will get it together eventually.

@Anon Hopefully Aaron doesn’t spend much time thinking about his sister’s sex life…
Patrick April 2, 2014, 8:37 PM EST.
Haha, I don’t why everyone is excited. Paulo looks at all his girls like that.
Tess, Lucy, Rachel, Jasmine, even Jessica and Daisy a little. He doesn’t have any specific standards for his love, it’ll just happen if he stands next to an ovulating female long enough. It’s a little frustrating how fleeting his “true love” is.
At this point, I’d personally like him to stop claiming to love any of these girls. He really doesn’t understand how when you really love someone, absolutely no one compares. You wait for them, and you need them over everyone. He doesn’t love anyone, he just likes almost the entire female cast.

Oh dear, has David seen something happen offscreen..?
I always thought it interesting that they sent friendship flowers to their respective beaus… not that it means they won’t ever be in love, but at the very least, they’ll be close friends. Speaking optimistically, of course.

ABwingz April 3, 2014, 2:01 AM EST.
I know Rachel’s always been short but she really looks like a child standing next to him like that in panel 1. Proportions are an odd thing to work with sometimes.
Lainy April 3, 2014, 2:48 AM EST.
Maybe Paulo believes he owns all of these girls. That only he is allowed to have them. That’s why he got jealous over Matt. That might be whats going on.
But it could also be just total ********
Jonas97face April 3, 2014, 4:22 AM EST.
Seems like he finally figured out his **** with Lucy, but then due to actions initiated by Mike, she left for various reasons.
And out of apathetic frustration he went back to his old self, which Rachel tries to keep under control.
Which reminds me, Mike still hasn’t done anything to set things right for wrecking Lucy back in “December”
Arefu April 3, 2014, 8:29 AM EST.
@Arefu He tried to patch things up after the play, but got shooed away by whatshername (Lily? I think that’s her name). Had he just forced his way into the hospital, he would’ve only caused more grief and pain to Lucy’s family. I’d like to think when the chance or opportunity presents itself again, he’ll try to make things right (and not get shooed away by Lily a third time). We’ll see how it goes.
Dean April 3, 2014, 9:20 AM EST.
feel strangely cool that my name is also aaron xD
aaron April 3, 2014, 10:06 AM EST.
@Arefu FALSE Paulo is affected by Lucy being gone, deeply, which shows at the party and when he breaks down in front of Mike before Happy Hour. It’s not that he’s blowing off his feelings for Lucy at all. Rachel is simply comforting him in… Well, a way she definitely knows how. He wasn’t thinking straight the first time after Lucy was gone, but he’s thinking straight enough now to know he doesn’t have those kinds of feelings for Rachel. (Possessiveness is just a kind of side effect to having *ahem* benefits with anybody.)
FreeFallingUp April 3, 2014, 10:35 AM EST.
For those wondering: Yes, Aaron is Rachel’s brother from before, the one mentioned during Lucy’s birthday party that started off the whole Jessica vs. Tess backstory. Matt, the cat that’s been mentioned and shown recently, is no relation.
modulusshift April 3, 2014, 2:05 PM EST.
I just remembered that guy from a page ago or so who said something like “WILL YOU SHUT UP DAVID” and then some other guy was like “David didn’t even SAID anything on this page, *******” and well.
This is kinda funny now.
(And David’s awesome. For some reason, all of the characters annoy me sometimes…because drama. But not David!)
NotThatImportant April 3, 2014, 2:42 PM EST.
OMG!!! I know where Lucy must be! She must be with Zach at Acapulco!!
How can we forget Zach? He did say that if something where to happen to Lucy “He would be there… somehow.” That must be the answer!!!! <3
Vanilla April 3, 2014, 4:57 PM EST.
Last time was unwarranted because I made a mistake with the chat bubbles but now DAVID SHUT THE F*CK UP
Random bystander April 3, 2014, 5:48 PM EST.
Hey @vanilla that’s a great theory!
Nightshade April 3, 2014, 8:04 PM EST.
This is a very interesting thought
Tails April 3, 2014, 8:20 PM EST.
Could’ve told the parents?
But OH NO!! that means he’ll most likely be grounded and have privileges taken away (byebye cellphone, byebye contact with Sandy).
But it seems like saving his own *** is more important than fixing his mistakes.
Gims April 3, 2014, 8:21 PM EST.
Okay, so you start by saying you disagree, but then goes into details with things that literally agrees with it.
Reading comprehension please.
Tangy April 3, 2014, 8:25 PM EST.
David is the only one who’s consistently a scourge in the comic.
But that’s because he’s literally a generic comedy relief character with no personality or redeeming features whatsoever.
Keltin April 3, 2014, 8:32 PM EST.
@Keltin: If David has a single redeeming quality, it is only that sometimes his timing is hilarious. Otherwise, yeah, he pretty much has no redeeming qualities.
Moogle April 3, 2014, 9:50 PM EST.
I think i’m pretty much done with this whole comic. It’s just eh…I used to like it but it’s like i’ve been waiting forever for Lucy to come and like… i just end up disliking more and more characters and lack sympathy for most of them now. Each and every page is just more dissatisfying.
Chazz April 3, 2014, 10:49 PM EST.
…Rachel just implied that she tried getting with Matt (oreo cat) not even a few pages ago, so I’m not sure why everyone is still going on about them being brother/sister, or cousins, or aunt/uncle, or who even knows what with some of these comments.
Plus, I think that Taeshi has hinted enough (i.e. created a mini comic that’s all about Paulo/Rachel and David/Sue and how they could not have children together because their breeds were incompatible) that cats and dogs cannot procreate together, so them being related by blood would have been impossible anyway.
And then those already forgetting that oreo cat’s name is Matt and now thinking it’s Aaron… I-I’m just so distraught.
Aaron is her little brother (and as mentioned, only brother) who plays soccer, and was bullied by Roger and his crew.
~~~just as a little clarification~~~
…Also those lockers are huge!
Vex April 4, 2014, 2:25 AM EST.
this is kinda dumb on paulo’s side. i guess paulo only ”’wanted”’ her when he thought he couldn’t have her, but at least rachel has a good head on her shoulders. i really like this ship hnnngh but it all comes down to paulo.
also i was thinking about this for the past week and i remember someone saying that if rachel’s thinking about the future why can’t abbey and the more i think about it the more i agree with the statement. she doesn’t want to get serious because she’s obviously thinking about marriage and stuff so the same goes for abbey. the bias towards the girls is strong in this comic, which is refreshing since usually girls get bashed for a lot of stupid stuff in fandoms. like really stupid stuff. i can appreciate that but at the same time the girl’s not always right, so you can see where i obviously sway there. a+ to both abbey and rachel tbh.
meili April 4, 2014, 3:38 AM EST.
His own parents? They were not part of this. I mean it would make sense that he would tell Lucy’s parents but not his own. I’m not sure they know what happened to Lucy (If they don’t know he should tell though). It’s really not their business. This is really personal stuff. It’s not a thing that you can just scold your child and take away there cellphone. No. This is way more serious. I believe that this is something Mike has to do on his own.
If Mike wants to fix this, he’s going to have to do it on his own. I believe he will, but right now the comic is focusing on other stuff. Like I said in the beginning of this chapter ”This is about Paulo and Daisy” therefore not about Mike.
Jonas97face April 4, 2014, 4:03 AM EST.
So you don’t think that if Lucy’s parents found out, that they would contact Mike’s parents for a serious conversation?
After all, Mike pushed Lucy to (presumably and most likely indirectly) attempting suicide, so it isn’t just some small willy nilly thing.
“”It’s really not their business. This is really personal stuff. It’s not a thing that you can just scold your child and take away there cellphone. No. This is way more serious. I believe that this is something Mike has to do on his own. “”
It is clear that Mike both can’t and won’t do it on his own, so it is time to involve the adults, and the consequences that’ll ensure.
No sensible adult would let their child get off scot-free for ruining the mental health of another, and taking away his cellphone and grounding him seems like the only thing that’ll actually have any impact on him.
He might consider his contact to Sandy as a crutch, but it is also blinding him to the people actually around him so it’ll do him some good.
Only person that’ll be truly negatively affected is Sandy, but it was Mike who dragged her into this mess by talking only to her about it instead of the people around him.
“”Like I said in the beginning of this chapter ”This is about Paulo and Daisy” therefore not about Mike.””
Oh boy “Daisy and Paulo gets away with manipulating Abbey to be in a unhealthy relationship”: The Chapter
Bestseller blockbuster right there.
Gims April 4, 2014, 9:18 AM EST.
Never said that it was a small thing. When I said that ”I’m not sure they know what happened to Lucy” I meant Mike’s parents, not Lucy’s.
”So you don’t think that if Lucy’s parents found out, that they would contact Mike’s parents for a serious conversation?” Of course I think they would. I never said they wouldn’t.
When I say ”It’s not their business. This is really personal stuff.” I mean that Mike has reached an certain age where he can take responsibilities if it involves his social circle. I’m not one of those ”Oh he’s just a teenager” people.
Maybe your right that Mike won’t, but if so then maybe he just needs a little push. Sometimes people want to do something but they don’t.
”No sensible adult would let their child get off scot-free for ruining the mental health of another, and taking away his cellphone and grounding him seems like the only thing that’ll actually have any impact on him.”
Well. That is your opinion. I just think that that isn’t enough. I don’t think that would really change much.
If you think what I’m saying is that Mike shouldn’t fix it if he doesn’t want it then your wrong. If it has to be the parents then fine. I just think it would be better and more redeeming if Mike did it himself. In other words, this is my opinion on this certain matter.
”Oh boy “Daisy and Paulo gets away with manipulating Abbey to be in a unhealthy relationship”: The Chapter
Bestseller blockbuster right there.”
Yeah that’s right . I’m not really happy about the outcome of this chapter. I feel really bad for Abbey .
This has been a rather exciting (and bad for Abbey) chapter. Time for the final page . Looking forward for the next page upload
Jonas97face April 4, 2014, 10:36 AM EST.
@Tangy Yeah, I had to pause, so I lost my train of thought. But basically, Rachel isn’t “keeping anything under control”. There’s nothing to control- Paulo just ended up distracting himself, is all. Unintentionally at first, but he went along with it after that. She’s just kind of there, and going along with it too.
@Gims This bashing against Abbey/Daisy. Again. Okay.
Let me say this. As a teenager, I can’t tell if I love somebody. HOWEVER, it’s JUST as hard putting the “Love” label where it belongs. I will not deny that feelings for somebody else while loving somebody you can’t have does happen, but the thing is, that first love thing doesn’t fade. Currently, this comic is making me relive my first love just a few years ago, and I still have love for him. However, I’m in a deep relationship with somebody else. That doesn’t mean I don’t love who I’m with any less. It’s just a different kind of love.
So what I’m thinking is Daisy really does like (and I will go far to say she loves) Abbey. She just doesn’t really know what to call it yet. She’s stuck in this mindset that love is a one-person deal, and it’s not. I mean, come on. You love your girlfriend, and you love your parents or siblings or family. You probably don’t want to bang your mom like you wanna bang your girlfriend. Different. Kinds. Of love. (I know there are more emotional feelings that would be more appropriate between guys and gals, but I felt that would get the point across.)
Daisy just needs to be led to realize that. Don’t give up hope Abbey! (>w<)^
FreeFallingUp April 4, 2014, 11:25 AM EST.
“Don’t give up hope Abbey!”
He did after a Year where Daisy didn’t change for the better AT ALL.
And even after when Abbey told Daisy to leave him alone she went all out spoiled child and decided go all teary eyed instead of self-reflecting on how and what she screwed up with.
Neither did she ever attempt to stop Paulo, even though she knows that Paulo downright hates Abbey.
Cue Paulo literally guilt-tripping Abbey to be with Daisy again.
Daisy and Paulo didn’t even act like young teenagers, they acted like entitled kids.
Abbey’s the only one who acted somewhat reasonable, since he saw that it wouldn’t get any better and his patience for Daisy getting over Mike were gone.
Rilfer April 4, 2014, 5:07 PM EST.
… Why does everybody insist them getting back together is wrong? Seriously, there IS another side to this.
Daisy is NOT a spoiled child for wanting Abbey back. She’s hurt, not bratty. Imagine doing something and not remembering doing it. It’s like that would be another person who did it, or maybe like it never even happened. Daisy doesn’t remember a thing, and Abbey suddenly broke up with her because of it. It’s impossible to “reflect” on alcohol-induced amnesia, too. Just saying.
They’re sophomores. They’re like fifteen-sixteen. If stuff happens out of nowhere, after things were going just fine in your eyes, then you’re GOING to want it back. If you don’t understand the reason something is gone, then the reason is pretty much null in your eyes. It seems unfair. That doesn’t make Daisy a brat. She’s just a girl who knows she has feelings for Abbey. Feelings don’t get blown off even if you know they’re wrong.
Paulo is RIGHT; she obviously cares about Abbey, not just their relationship. Like I said, those might be mislabeled feelings, or not. Her feelings for Mike aren’t just going to disappear. But if they were so debilitating to their relationship as Abbey is feeling, then WHY would Daisy go out of her way to try and get back Abbey?
And saying it wouldn’t get any better. Kay.
When I met my guy about three years ago, he wanted to kill me on sight. Now we’re that stuck-together couple who never notices anybody else romantically. (Emotionally, anyway; hormones do play a part as teenagers) What I’m bringing up here is sometimes, feelings take time, sometimes a few days or weeks, but other times it will take years. But, it does happen. Abbey just needs to be at that opportunity when Daisy realizes there’s more room in her heart than the part Michael’s in.
(And just to justify Paulo’s actions, can I just bring up the chapter where he fantasizes what would happen if he had let Lucy let him take her virginity while she cried over Michael? That graduation scene? He’s not just being a ******* kid - he just doesn’t want Daisy to miss out on that. She’s like his little sister.)
Teenagers don’t act like adults. In fact, our brains (at least, the areas that involve reasoning for doing things) is not fully developed ‘til our twenties. So… Yeah, we do stupid things for no reason, and we also make mistakes and do things that seem unreasonable. BUUUUT better than nothing, eh? We manage anyway. Don’t expect maturity out of all teenagers in that sense. The way they went about it is pretty kid-like, but that doesn’t mean that they had any other way of doing it in their heads. Don’t be so harsh, guys.
