Veronica: Lucy’s heart seems to be going yooonder..

I guess it was fortunate that Paulo was issued detention that day, because if he wasn’t, he woulda gone home which meant LUCY woulda gone home! Everything worked out perfectly.. there is a god up there who had Sue’s priorities in mind..

.. That god being me lol

Give Luce some credit guys. It is entirely possible to be friends, even CLOSE friends without being in a relationship. Besides, Lucy seems to be the last person that would actually be willing to be like “Too bad that didnt work out, on to the next boy I guess”

Paulo has done a lot for her, and now they are friends. Its not gunna go anywhere. I hope...

@Abelin: Well, i dunno, look at it from Lucy’s perspective. I mean, your best bud in the whole wide world tells ya “Hey, Im tired of being your babysitter, your own your own.” And pretty much disowns you. He’s been your best friend for most of your life, too the point where you’re in love with the guy. And when you come out with it, he just completely rejects you. Now, yes, Lucy has other friends, other people that care about her, but the person who she spends most of her time with, who is arguably the closest to her, just ends it. Now you have to agree, that’s going to leave a pretty big void. She’s confused, doesn’t have the one guy who she always turns to there, so she turns to someone else, and those emotions, those conflicting emotions and such, get focused on that someone else (in this case, Paulo).

So you turn to them, they give you a shoulder to cry on, someone that’ll listen and understand, and then at what is arguably one of the weaker moments of your life, instead of taking advantage of you, made sure to look out for you, to make sure you don’t do something stupid. Now in that situation, that guy’s gonna look like a knight in shining armor, so to say, because, looking back, he’s been there all along. He’s the first crush, the guy that has been a friend, been generally supportive of you for a good while, and was there even when you had your best bud, so its not like he just moved in to your life the second the other guy went out. So from Lucy’s point of view, this is the guy that’s been there for her all along, and so she’s probably going to be thinking “This is the guy thst’s my true friend, the guy that really cares for me” and she’s going to be thinking more than just friend. But that’s just how i perceive it.

I love Lucy’s face in panel 5. :D

I don’t know if Sue’s doing this because she wants Mike and Lucy together or because of the sake of the play, but I really wish she would stop. She shouldn’t force them onto each other, they don’t want that… D:
