Lucy always seems to say more when she's pissed

Hmm... Paulo does not seem surprised

Paulo I think she doesn't tell anyone her problems because as Lucy puts it, they anyways think they know what's best for her

Also, Paulo did try and talk with her way back in December. Lucy was just set on her plan at that point and either avoided or deflected.

SHE TALKED TO AUGUSTUS ABOUT IT CUZ HE'S SURE BEEN A BETTER FRIEND TO HER THAN ANY OF YOU NUMBSKULLS

Did she ever even give them a chance? Lucy has never been one to get into her feelings and share so how could they? Augustus is different because he didnt respect her boundaries and forced his way in, yes this is what was needed but you shouldn't fault her friends because people tend to forget, THEY'RE JUST KIDS.

Paulo is being the mature and responsible one. PAULO. That should give you a moment's pause, Lucy.

He's not. She's trying to walk away constantly, and he's escalating and making her feel uncomfortable

I just can't get over the fact that he said "stalker." Can't tell if this is a descriptive escalation or de-escalation when it comes to Augustus. Either way, that's DEFINITELY not gonna work, Paulo.

To be fair, he kinda was a stalker

Fiver  

Comment ID #20388

Yeah, sort of. I don't think he ever found out where she lived or anything.

Paulo, I see you walking towards her again, I'm begging you not to go in for yet another grab while she's trying to walk away. Things can always get uglier...

Some key things to keep in mind as observers here.

Emotions are running high

How many of you can easily not snap back when your good intentions are met with hostilities

While the words are the best the intentions are there and Paulo isn't a wordsmith

This is playing out much better than what you could expect from these two if we were to rewind a couple of years

This feels like the first time we've seen pre-crisis Lucy in a while at her most hostile and argumentative and I kind of love it

This is about what I expected. Hopefully *something* productive comes of this.

This feels like it's the first time it's been said so openly. Ahh, it's a shocker for sure. But just like Mike said he always had to be the super unassuming nice guy, Lucy also had a role forced onto her. They never felt like they could talk to anyone elae because of how their friend group viewed them for such a long time. The comic even starts with Daisy going gaga for Mike and Paulo slapped Lucy on the ass.

tbh, i honestly don't know who is in the wrong here anymore, all i know is this is just a bunch of over emotional teenagers being over emotional teeenagers(insert teen romance drama tropes here).

why do i feel like paulo is just gonna stop and go *Record scratch noise* "You tried TO WHAT!?!" And freak out...which, might make things Worse, but who knows. In all honestly, i really hope Lucy gets help/makes friends with jordan's friends bc i still think, imo, that her getting some new friends might help her in the long run
