*Mike suddenly notices something in front of him.*

*Lucy looks up in shock.*

*Lucy and Mike stare at each other, eyes wide.*

Lucy and Mike: School.

*They lean in closer, eyes continuing to widen.*
Lucy and Mike: School.

*They yell, panicked.*
Lucy and Mike: School!

*They turn to look at the viewer.*
Lucy and Mike: SCHOOL!!

*They wail, teeth grit in abject misery.*
Lucy and Mike: SCHOOOOOL!!

Author commentary

Veronica: When I first drew this chapter, I ran out of pages in my original notebook so I had to start a nice, clean, fresh, new one.

The new notebook is honestly a fitting beginning to a new chapter that highlights the beginning of high school! Art in my storytelling AND my media!!! Boy, I’m a genius!!

Anyway, I’m clearly more excited than Mike and Lucy, who are having the worst day of their lives. Didn’t the first day of school always feel stressful and awful??? I never looked forward to it!
