No worries, Mike got his revenge by doing the same thing to Lucy.
Yesterday, 08:50 PMWell, I could point out the last time Lucy threw something at Mike. Bet he didn't appreciate that.

The colour progression and associated change in Mike's feelings could certainly continue, since Taeshi mentioned a sequence of pages. I think the next page will show Mike acknowledging that he'd had some good moments with Lucy as well. This would be reminiscent of "Starting Over", where Lucy begins by stating that Mike is a jerk and a big idiot, but later goes on to acknowledge how he helped her.
However, the fact that they shared some good moments should not overshadow the fact that a lot of the time, Lucy simply didn't treat Mike the way a real friend should. Abuse should not be tolerated, and I think Mike acknowledged that when he told Lucy, "There's still a lot of things to talk about. It's not like everything is okay." Mike knows that he has conflicting feelings for Lucy, just as Lucy had conflicting feelings for Mike in "Starting Over".
Of course in "Starting Over", the subtext was that despite her protests, Lucy actually loved Mike. And maybe a similar thing will be shown regarding Mike's past on the next page as well. Indeed there was once a point where Mike had strong feelings for Lucy, but they went unrequited, just as Mike would later reject Lucy when she told him she loved him. So on both sides, unrequited love and pushing away. Albeit one could suggest that Lucy really had no reason to continue to be as competitive with Mike as she was. Initially it was about proving that she was as good as he was, but once the two became friends, why would that matter so much?

Anger and sadness
Further chill the wintry air.
A long, bitter walk.
