Lucy: AAAHHHH!!! (runs away in terror)
Mike: Wow, I can’t believe that worked!
Lucy is letting her anger cloud her judgment. She should be able to see that Mike clearly doesn't want to bother her & is being dragged along. But because she's so pissed off, she's either not seeing that, or deliberately ignoring that fact to hurt Mike's feelings.
Or like she said she has the right to be there and won't be scared off. Shes just going to have fun and do what she wants, not let past trauma control her anymore. It's a step to having a healthy normal life again.
He was the reason she wanted to unalive.... He SHOULD feel awkward. This is a win for Lucy; she is keeping her cool without direct interaction with Mike
Mike hasn't done anything wrong in this scene but from Lucy's return up to Eternal Flame he's pretty much only snarled or glared at her for just minding her own business and existing (including following her around a couple of times and hiding in bushes to glare at her when called out). And that's not even getting into the way he treated her before her departure. I think Mike has earned her getting defensive around him at this point.
Mike: Ooh, Michael Scott wish somewhere else now!
Mike: Maybe if I close eyes she go away!
i like that this is something she probably learnt in therapy
Lucy speaking softly so only Mike could hear.. good stuff.
Lucy is talking to all the readers who said she should leave
I love this for Lucy. Yes she is coming off harsh but she’s not telling Mike to get lost. She’s saying she deserves to have fun in a place she enjoys. And that him being there won’t scare her anymore. They’re no longer friends and she is making peace with that but knows she will probably cross his path till one or both of them move away.
Honestly, Mike should take what she said as advice too. He also deserves to be in a place where he enjoys. And shouldn’t be scared to be there. Him being awkward about it makes it worse since it’s a reminder. He just needs to acknowledge to himself he fucked up and be at peace with it and not worry about crossing paths with Lucy.
James is also just a great wall between them. He has no history of it all, saw how she was aggressive before but still inviting her to play because he’s such a cinnamon roll
Based on seat placement, that wall comment seems almost literal for James as well, which is a neat little touch, and might be him either quietly or subconsciously picking up on the tension and splitting them up physically.
