Author commentary

Veronica: Just to set the record straight, this chapter was initially written as a side story that I wouldn’t publish online. In the original sketch, this page is where the story began. After deciding to make it all canon, I added the two previous pages to show how the argument started and why.

People think Mike’s become more of a jerk, but what kind of jerk deals with the same awkwardness since the age of five? Someone with the patience of a GOD.
