Veronica: I do really like this sequence now that I properly revised it. It’s really hard to make a conversation look dynamic and I take different angles overtime every time. A phone call is a solid challenge!

Sorry. I was busy smooching another girl
did he imply he was gonna... do something?? why did she assume that
It doesn't sound like he did directly, but I bet he always answered the phone ASAP when she called. So if he missed a few calls she might have assumed so.
He was Super Distressed during the call, soooo.... I honestly would've assumed that too lol
Don't forget that Lucy also made an attempt on her own life. While it might not be openly discussed, that thought sitting in the back of people's mind can cause assumptions to be made when someone else seems to be getting depressed.
@ Maybelle, I dunno, that's a pretty big conclusion to jump to. he's never expressed any ideation before and at the very least, Sandy reads him as pretty mentally well off. he did sound very upset, but not in a life threatening way
idk I don't mean to say that it makes no sense for Sandy to be worried or that she is/needs to be the most rational character ever, I'm just a little... squinty eyes at her for jumping right to this level of panic. and that she wasn't worried enough to call for help, despite how freaked out she sounds on the phone. I think the comment from Alec below explains it better
Mike: Alright, I’ll make sure to scare you even more next time.
Sandy: (growls in anger)
Wow now you know how Mike feels every time he has a meltdown over you not answering lmao
And it all makes sense now..
Oh shit, she thought he killed himself.
Mmm, starting off with a demand rather than an apology is definitely not the most healthy way to approach this call. I get that her emotions are high, but it's not a great look. Gives an air of blame rather than a genuine apology over the pain caused. I get the feeling this call will start going down that path, (hopefully) but subtle things like that can show the cracks in a relationship that need to be addressed.
"I thought you did something bad!"
Oh girl, he absolutely did, and the next day he'll make it even worse.
This is looking like they are together because she's afraid he'll unalive himself? I hope not but I wouldn't have answered the phone if I was Mike. But then again, I'm not. Looking forward to the next pages :D!
Aaahhhh alternative universe
Damn, she actually looks hella distraught even from a shot like that!
