It’s blowing the wrong way for Paulo’s anger to be directed in its general direction. It also looks like a single ribbon of hair not attached to anything else but at the top.

Y’know, just so you can finally facepalm yourself and get over it. :P

Maybe she jerked her head back when Paulo yelled at her, making her hair look like it’s moving forward, when it’s her moving backwards…

She was trying to protect your virginity, Paulo.

Protect him? That’s a cop out.
If a girl c-blocked me from a potential threesome, no matter how much I cared for her, if we aren’t in a relationship, her opinion is void.

Dammit Taeshi, you’ve got me caring about your characters!

Paulo is like Kirby in the final panel - he’s trying to steal Tess’ hair’s power by sucking it in.

I love how panel 11 is soo small.

She has a point. I thought the same as Paulo, but I also thought she did it to protect him. She wants him to live his life, and to find the right one, not be a player.

If Tess is just leading him along as she says she’s trying to protect him, then her opinion has zero worth. “Trying to protect him”. That’s bull****. Look, if she’s not even going out with him, when they clearly like each other, then she has no business talking down to him as if he can’t make his own decisions. If he wants to be a player, then by all means, let him be a player.

Panels 7-End: I love them. I’m so glad Paulo isn’t taking Tess’ ****. There hasn’t been a point where I haven’t like him. Sure, in the first few chapters before we learn of his trauma about barking dogs, he was a little of the antagonist side. But once we DO learn about his trauma…That was just the turning point for me. Now, he is my favorite character, completely blowing Lucy and Mike out of the water.

Ugh, Tess. C’mon, just do it. So what if it’s only 1 more year. It’ll be one year of awesome!

Taeshi, ‘bout that comment… (Skyrim!) looks like Paulo just used Fus when yelling at Tess.
