Mike, you should've shut her down, jerk

Mike doesn't deserve this and neither do these girls.

Ya mean Daisy and Lucy?

Sandy too. We don't see her life too often but what we have seen is that it is very stressful.

Sandy: Oh him, you don’t to worry about him anymore. He lost interest in me, he’s more interested in stealing someone’s bike.

Mike: Why a bike?

Sandy: He told me it's the coolest looking bike he ever seen.

Mike: Oh.

the sudden 180 of "i hate myself and you're too good for me and also the best choice for me you make me a better person" etc etc is so painfully familiar. Entirely possible that she tried to tell Francis they could be together and HE panicked about it and dipped? which in turn made Sandy panic? just a thought! people (especially young insecure people) might like the idea of a relationship they can't have and the thought of actually getting it for real is too scary

i say this fully aware it's why characters like Lucy and Tess consistently jerked Paulo around while never confident enough to try dating him

I think ypu are right about francis. I think when sandy ended things with mike she ran to francis and he rejected her. I only say this because in the chapter track meet page 23, sandy is talking on the phone with mike and sandy says “his loss is all i have to say” which struck me as odd because that usually what the person who was rejected says not the person who did the rejecting

It's amazing how much has happened in just the year between December and Eternal Flame


Comment ID #21718

It's a fun yearly yuletide tradition for Mike to ruin Lucy's life now. It's just not Christmas without it!


Comment ID #21719

I feel ya on this page Mike, that is exasperating...

Yes, I'm glad that it's finally cleared up and clarified!

I'm so relieved it wasn't an adult

Maybelle Conrad

I can finally understand the situation better knowing he wasn't an adult lol thank God

Hey Mike

I still don't like you

So it's looking like a big part of him taking Sandy back was his guilt off how he has essentially used Lucy in a similar way as Sandy is describing but for all these years since Sandy's been gone... Understandable but not a good way to handle things.

Now that it's confirmed Francis isn't an adult I sure feel bad for him. Sandy used him the same way Mike used Lucy AND he got fired? This is why hair and makeup people need unions smh.


Comment ID #21737

Mike: I want to speak to Francis.

Sandy: Francis is busy.

Mike: Busy doing what?

Sandy: He's having his bath.

Mike: Oh, really? Where are they hosing him down?

Sandy: (click)


Comment ID #21738

Awesome, we have francis age confirmed and the idiots making massive assumptions based on literally no info can shut up LOL


Comment ID #21739

This, but less antagonistic. Nothing is confirmation until confirmation; the rest is vibes.

It's good to theorize, bad to be like I KNEW IT and getting everyone riled up. That behavior buries the intended story, which I know we all care about, ultimately.


Comment ID #21740

I don't actually care about Francis' age being one of these, but like when people piled on Mike for saying Sandy cheated on him, saying he was exaggerating / lying.. it sucked for those who didn't hold that opinion. At least me.

There's no avenue for getting, like, an apology on that. People just move on from being mean to others, sometimes.


Comment ID #21741

No need to be a jerk. Most professional hairdressers are well into their 20s so it was a reasonable concern. It's a relief he's closer in age to Sandy but I'm not stupid for assuming otherwise before we had Sandy confirm it.


Comment ID #21742

What professional hairdresser for an internationally successful fashion model is under 18 lol. It makes sense to assume adulthood

Its a comic about anthropamorphic cats. Shush


Comment ID #21744

Lucy: Mike, what did I ever do to y-y-you?

Mike: Why does she talk like a lamb?


Comment ID #21745

This is so manipulative, even if not necessarily on purpose. Maybe it was that way with Lucy, but what makes that worse than being ignored by Sandy constantly? Mike was ALWAYS there for Sandy. What makes his feelings for Lucy fake or desperate?

Sandy's getting in his head and I don't like it.


Comment ID #21746

relationships kept going out of guilt aren't healthy aaaaaaaaaa

Damn the parallels he's seeing here, boy's torturing himself so much...
