*Paulo stares into the distance with a grim expression.*
[“DOOM” is written at the top of the panel.]
*Paulo, Mike and David sit at the lunch table. David relaxes with his head on the table while Mike glances over at Paulo.*
Mike: Paulo? What’s wrong?
*Paulo clenches his fists and grits his teeth.*
Paulo: I want to murder the entire tenth grade..
*Mike smiles nervously and rubs the back of his head.*
Mike: Guh.. Why?
*Paulo scowls, turning to Mike.*
Paulo: You should friggin’ know by now!!
Mike: You’re not still mad about those 600 laps, are you?
*Paulo pouts and turns his back on Mike.*
Paulo: NO, I’m over that. It’s.. c’mon, weren’t you told..?
*Mike closes his eyes, irritated.*
Mike: You’ll have to enlighten me.
Paulo: I got a call from Tess last Friday.. It wasn’t exactly a sweet one, if you know what I mean..
*Mike hears someone shuffle up to the table.*
*Daisy, in her cheerleader uniform, puts her purse on the table with a somber expression. David nibbles on the table next to her.*
Daisy: Morning, guys..
Mike: Oh. Hi, Daisy..
*Mike stares at Daisy with a terrified expression as he begins to shake.*
Mike: I.. see you’re still wearing your uniform…
*Daisy looks confused.*
*Paulo, off to the side, glares at Mike.*

Mike: J-just overpreparing for after-school practice r-right? That’s why you’re in uniform?
Mike: .. Right?

David: OH I LOOOOVE THEM SOOO MUCH!!
Lucy: THEY’RE SOO FUN AND LOUD!!
*Mike’s fur stands up as he clutches his head with both hands.*
*David and Lucy continue standing over Mike and start to laugh.*
David and Lucy: HAHAHAHA HAWHAWHAW HAHAHAHAHA hehehehehehe hahaha

David: WHY ARE WE YELLING ANYWAY?!
*Lucy glares at David.*
