Veronica: A self-explanatory end.. nyarhar, I feel bad how I made him attempt to hug Lucy because it’s obvious he still has feelings for her.

Looks like Mike forgot the five D’s of dodgeball: Dodge, Duck, Dip, Dive and… Dodge.

Damn it Taeshi, now I’ve got Dodgeball movie quotes stuck in my head.

Mikey is all over the place. He’s all love-struck for Lucy and always, always pining over Sandy. Dude needs to make a decision. QUICK.

Moar akward plz.

That’s nothing compared to what he does later. He should be beaten so black and blue it looks like Sonic the Hedgehog had kids with Shadow.

I dislike Paulo as he is unchivalrous. Why do kids nowadays think being a ********* is gonna win them points with the ladies?

something similar happened to me.

In gym class, I was forced into the dodgeball ring.

I managed to make it to the end, but in a bad way.

I’m an amazing dodger, the result of being a tsundere magnet I suppose, and then I was the last person on my side.

Everyone on the other side picked up a ball at the same time and aimed at me.

I managed to doge three of the battalion that swarmed me.

You know, Paulo probably only did that to get on the good side of those girls. -_-“

@bluesub6: More likely, to hit Mike. And he has support of girls, which sweetens the deal.

may as well go the full mile, and have paulo shoot mike while calling him a cheater… but, i suppose that would end the comic, and cut mike’s suffering short.

i just can’t stand seeing innocent people getting treated like that.

Their recreation budget is fantastic. I would’ve thought…Penn State, but that’s irrelevant. ^.^
