Confrontation — Page 27



*Sue, in class the next day, holds up a paper and reads from it with a cheerful smile.*
Sue: So I hope you learned a thing or two about the bacteria that crawls in our skin.

*Paulo, Sue, Mike, Daisy and Lucy stand together at the front of the classroom, smiling placidly as their classmates clap for their group presentation.*

*Their teacher, a poodle with fluffy hair, looks at the group with a kind smile.*
Poodle teacher: Very good. And that’s all for today!

Poodle teacher: Class dismissed! Have a wonderful afternoon!
Student: Whoo
Paulo: Yay!
*The students clamor as everyone packs up to leave. Paulo has an excited smile on his face. Mike props his schoolbag up on his desk. His arm is bandaged.*

*Sue sighs, annoyed.*
Sue: For all the trouble we went through finding our way back from that museum, we better ace this one..
*Daisy frowns as she notices Mike getting up to leave.*

*Daisy catches up to Mike.*
Daisy: Mikie!!
*Mike looks at her.*

*Daisy twiddles her fingers, looking down and blushing. Behind them, more of their classmates leave.*
Mike: What’s wrong?
Daisy: Umm..

*Daisy looks up at Mike, tearful.*
Daisy: I’m.. sorry about yesterday.

*Mike stares blankly.*

*Mike smiles and takes Daisy’s hands in his.*
Mike: For what?
*Daisy’s eyes go wide. She blushes.*

*Daisy smiles, looking lovestruck.*

*She hugs him tight.*
Daisy: This is why I like you so much, Mikie!!
*Mike is winded by the force of Daisy’s hug. His face gets squished up against the side of Daisy’s head.*
Paulo: So I totally beat up some thugs.
*Paulo, standing behind them, grins smugly at David, his arms folded. David looks awestruck.*
David: Wow!

Author commentary

Veronica: “You shoulda saved some for me!!“

I wanted David to say that after the “wow” in the final panel, but I obviously couldn’t fit that in. I definitely wanted to say more, imagine if David was there. I think he would have actively tried to stop things! Even David won’t be goofy in every situation!

Anyway Paulo you’re RUDE

Mike looks like he’s either the most constipated cat on the planet or in alot of pain from her hugging his injuries.

This is probably my favorite page of Bittersweet so far. Especially the last panel, with Paulo and David in the backgorund! XD I love this comic, I found it just today!
