Humble Approach — Page 4



*Abbey, seated at the lunch table, notices Lucy sipping her drink.*

Abbey: What’s your name?
*Lucy looks at Abbey with a blank expression.*
Lucy: Lucy. Why do you wanna know?

Abbey: Are you feeling alright over there?
*Lucy resumes sipping her drink.*
Lucy: Sure, why wouldn’t I be?

Abbey: You tell me!
*Lucy narrows her eyes.*
Lucy: I did.. and I said I was fine.
Abbey: Doesn’t look like it to me.
Lucy: How would you know?

*Abbey looks troubled.*
Abbey: Goodness, are these girls gloomy or what..
Abbey: Surely I can say something?

*Abbey pats Lucy on the head.*
Abbey: Lucy.. are you also a little insecure?
Lucy: Huh?

*Abbey smiles at Lucy while continuing to pet her.*
Abbey: Hiding your feelings won’t solve any problems in the long run, you know. Please, let others take on your burdens.

*Lucy blushes, her eyes wide and cute.*
Lucy: Y-you’re right. I should say something..

*Lucy smacks Abbey and scowls.*
Lucy: Don’t friggin’ touch me.

*Paulo angrily looks down at Abbey, who has collapsed on the ground.*
Paulo: Serves ya right! Only I’M allowed to feel her up!!
*Abbey’s legs twitch in the air.*
Abbey: .. but I wasn’t trying to..

*Abbey, lying on the floor, looks weary.*
Abbey: Oh, never mind..
Abbey: What’s the point..

*Abbey notices Daisy laugh.*
Daisy: Hee hee..

*Abbey stands back up, his eyes lighting up.*
Abbey: Daisy? You’re smiling?
*Daisy puts a hand to her mouth as she laughs.*
Daisy: I’m sorry..

Daisy: I haven’t seen anyone approach Lucy like that in a long while. Don’t take it to heart. That’s just how she is.

Abbey: Well, okay.. but are you alright?
*Daisy waves her hand.*
Daisy: I’m feeling a bit better now, yeah..

*Abbey and Daisy smile at each other.*
Daisy: Thanks for all your concern, Abbey..
Abbey: Oh, it was my pleasure!

David: Pshwhoo! Pshwhoo!
Daisy: ?
*Abbey looks irritated.*

*Abbey, furious, turns towards David.*
Abbey: GO AWAY!!
*David points another finger gun at Abbey.*
David: But I’m John Wilkes Booth, Mr. President!
David: With a laser gun!

Author commentary

Veronica: Fun fact.. Khao Manees are meant to be a Thai breed.. and I read that as a local custom, if you pat someone from Thailand on the head, it’s HIGHLY disrespectful. Since the head is meant to be the most sacred part of the body, the feet being the worst.. so I feel it’s amusing that Lucy, being a Thai cat, totally smacked Abbey for patting her on the head. I didn’t realize the coincidence until later! Seriously, Lucy hits anyone that touches her, but when I found that out, it amused me.

If I got that information wrong, feel free to correct me! And no, I wasn’t making a reference to Girly with the laser gun bit.. although after a while of finishing this comic, I realized this and thought “.. Whoa.. deja vu.. hope people don’t think I ripped it off!”

You know what?

I really really like abbey. That guy is as nice as he is mature.

So of course Lucy would have to abuse him. god damn it Lucy. -_-

Ahh, but it seems like he might have a thing for Daisy. Then again he might just be his chivalrous nature. :D
