I’ve been listening to my pandora account while reading this, and from the time Lucy said “I told Mike I love him” to the end of the page, the song I was listening to was Angels vy Within Temptation and the specific line was:

Could have been forever
Now we have reached the end

My pandora account has good timing.

Woah, this page had some sweet memories. Dammit, those were good times… Remember when there was still an innocent relationship between Mike and Lucy and Paulo still wasn’t the overly-emotional character he is now? (Actually that was the reason why the baby chapter was so sweet; when you think about it, at this point in the story, it wouldn’t have such a strong meaning, really.)

I wish both Lucy AND Paulo had worked together on that project. Things might have gone differently.

I’m listening to a lot of The Beatles right now, and I gotta say, I can imagine Paulo singing pretty much all of them. “I’ve Just Seen a Face”, “Yesterday”, “This Boy”, “Something”, and more. If you are a fan of The Beatles like me, I hope you agree! What about you Taeshi? :D

And now, yes, the cat is out of the bag. Lol, puns are funny…XD

Incidentally… who is the character with the 6-letter name that seems to have been censored out of existence here? o_O;
That is… uniquely creepy… meta-creepy even.
