Ten Seconds to Midnight

Augustus is wearing that poncho which indicates this takes place before his junior year. Still, I wonder why he's heading out. Maybe he's just going to distance himself from his parents for the coming new year.
I also thinks Augustus' parents was doing a 69 in the couch until his mom got tired and rolled off onto the floor.

As has been noted, this is in fact the present day, most likely New Year's Eve. Also, Augustus is just cleaning up a bit from his alcoholic deadbeat parents by setting a bottle back upright. While he himself may drink from time to time, he tends not to overdo it (unlike his parents).
His parents also appear to have left the door open, thus making the house cold and potentially waking him up. Guess he's going to leave for a while. Wonder if he might wander over to Tess' house to see how her party is getting on?
At least Augustus still has a house to live in, and a room of his own (threadbare as it is). If he could support himself and find a better place to live, he probably would. Until then, he's pretty much stuck with his parents.

Is that his father, or just some random junkie his mother found?

Just to see the look on Abbey's face, I would gleefully approve.

Kevin playing Connect Four with the kids. He's a great foster father, thumbs up to him.
It would be creepy if Augustus were watching the scene from outside. I doubt he'd care that much about Abbey though, unless he just happened to be passing by. Though if Augustus is in fact watching, I bet he wishes he could trade his own parents for people who actually gave two shits about him.

(Hint, it would be super easy for Molly to win right now)

first, place a red piece on top of the t-block shaped group. the dad would be forced to block off a diagonal win. then, another red piece in the middle column, and then the dad is trapped

It can probably be inferred that Lucy has chosen to spend most of the holidays cooped up in her room without interacting much with anyone. The gift from Paulo was a brief morale boost, and following that the pets did manage to get Lucy out of the house for a bit, but then Mike walked by again, reminding her of what had happened one week previously.
I wonder if Lucy will choose to stay in the house as per her usual habit of late, or if she'll be encouraged by her concerned family to get out and go to Tess' party. Or maybe she'll simply decide to go for an introspective walk in the snow, and so run into Augustus and chat with him.
Also: these watercolours are gorgeous.

I'm kind of afraid it might though...

I wonder what role will have in this chapter, as well as any plans he might have for Mike (provided they actually encounter each other again)?

I could suggest that Sam will offer to drive Lucy to Tess' party, but we all know how she feels about Sam's driving. Heaven forbid that Sam should find out Mike is the cause of Lucy's despondency though; he's even more protective of Lucy than Jordan is.

prediction: Lucy is made to attend an all-girls boarding school where she learns the magic of lesbianism.

I guess she got worse after Mike's appearance, if the family is at the point of crisis talks a week or so later.

Funnily enough, I had kind of the same thought as Kaxbe upon first reading the page. But I think jennytablina is more likely to prove right: that Lucy's family is considering getting her to see a therapist. And perhaps that would be a wise move, as Lucy could then talk things out in private and get a grip on her emotions so that she can start to move past. After all, Abbey benefited from seeing a therapist, and Lucy knows that, so perhaps she herself would be open to that.

I also gets a feeling that what happened between Mike and Lucy is meant to remain a secret. Lucy already has bottled up an unhealthy amount of guilt over Mike. The last thing she needs is to have Sam the Terminator burden her conscience with even more guilt. Lucy indeed needs help in getting a grip of her emotions. Even if she can potentially sort her own feelings out, it would possibly take so much time that it could stretch past the intended BCB timeline.
