Trouble in paradise as always? Hey, at least Lucy keeps him humble.

It’s also nice to see when Lucy and Mike started the full downward spiral. Gotta love the revelations this chapter.

Lucy is not entitled to having her feelings reciprocated by mike. For one, they are both being hostile. For two, how long does he have to communicate dissatisfaction with her presence before she catches the drift and stays away from him? She’s willfully inserting herself in his life, against his will, when she clearly is no longer welcome, and for good reason.

I’m not saying she or mike are monsters, but bad blood is had here, and ignoring it over wishful thinking only led to her getting what she deserved.

He has an essay to do tomorrow. Can’t expect him to just not do it and fail, or to dump all the responsibility on Daisy and Abbey. Though he could have gone at the situation in a better way, perhaps an apology or something to make it up to her for changing plans so suddenly. Though Lucy makes it hard, the first thing coming out of her mouth being an insult and all. While it’s hard to be kind to someone who comes on so strongly, you probably shouldn’t go with the offensive, even though it’s your first reaction. No one deserves to be left alone like that…
