Epic phone switch speed. Also, I desperately hope she’s not wearing an ugly brown sweater as well!
Edit: Wait a minute, is he puckering up to kiss the air in panel five??? Odd child.

They make a cute couple. I have no idea who I want Paulo with when he’s being a good boyfriend… And epic “OH SNAP” face. Lucy? Please? Hm. Finally pulled it off!

Curtisimo, good point.

But considering how Paulo’s got his shocked face on, it can’t be Jasmine. Or she certainly doesn’t sound happy.

I’m gonna assume it’s Lucy. It’s too much of a twist for it to be anyone else.

@anonymous one:
Yes, it couldn’t really be Jasmine, but I’m 50/50 on wether it’s Lucy or not. I mean, Lucy would be too straight forward, and since when is BCB straight foreword? Are there any big ‘villains’ Paulo would know of? FFC? Alejandro, maybe?

I don’t think I like the way I imagine that voice saying “Paulo”… In my mind it sounds troubled and asking for help, and it sounds the way I imagine Lucy to sound. A lot of imagination goes into the interpretation of phone calls you can’t hear though, so I could be off completely.

“Paulo…Come down for dinner”

Nah I doubt it, It’s probably Lucy but…considering the Taeshi likes to trick us by doing something we don’t expect…but then…she knows we now know that so she’s going with the obvious answer and then we won’t expect it to be Lucy and BAM surprise.

Thingamajig May 25, 2012, 2:32 AM EST.

Comment ID #217275

Ohhhh, please let it be Lucy. Why, because i’m stubbornly grounded in my theory that lucy is the anthropomorphic incarnation of chaos. If that is lucy on the phone then this page perfectly shows what i mean. Look at Paulo, he’s somewhat at peace and is happy. Then, BAM, Lucy calls and you can practically feel the vibe of chaos starting to cause a disruption in his life. (of course this is all assuming it is Lucy, if it isn’t take it as the rant it is.)

No one else thinking it could be Tess then? Lucy is too obvious, but anyone else is too random to the theme of the chapter (eg, daisy could call Paulo but it wouldn’t make sense given the current story)

If it were Tess it’d add to the whole “which girl” thing, making everything even more complicated, dramatic and fun

Comment ID #217281

How about that. Paulo daydreaming about Jazz, instead of immediately shifting his thoughts towards Lucy. Clearly, he still has feelings for Jazz, especially if he’s daydreaming about kissing her; puckering up no less! It’s what makes panel 4 hilarious.
I’m placing my bet that Lucy is the caller, as what other kind of person would get a reaction out of Paulo like that? If Lucy is indeed the caller, she must be hurting pretty bad to be reaching out right now, but she knows Paulo can be trusted.
He’s been there to comfort her every time and not once has he ever taken advantage of her state of distress, even when his body was telling him yes, he still had the fortitude of mind to say no.
It’s not that he doesn’t think she’s beautiful, but he has respect for her, even if she may find it difficult at times to respect herself.
Ah, Lucy…I think the problem with you is that you care too much about others and spend more time neglecting the one person you should start caring about…yourself.

Vortex98 May 25, 2012, 3:58 AM EST.

Comment ID #217282

I don’t think it’s Tess, he seems over her. Besides, she’s slowly fading away from the story until she graduates and leaves completely. It’s Lucy for sure

Also, may I add that while I’ve been hoping for Lucy to reach out to someone, more preferrably Paulo… I’m suddenly starting to feel a little wary?

I agree with a lot of other people here. Why didn’t he just talk to Jazz about this and confront the situation together? Wouldn’t Lucy have been even more comforted seeing two people checking up on her to see if she was okay…?

But now it’s too late, I guess… I hope everything works out well for these three.

oh no.
just now that he was at peace…
remember what mike said to lucy? “your dumb rebound doesn’t even love you”. now she will want to know if it’s true.
paulo will be forced to say he loves her, or else she will become even more depresses and could really attempt suicide.
at that point, paulo will have to admit he really loves her and stop lying to himself and jazz.
how will all this happen in only 2 pages? only taeshi knows (if this is really what will happen, since taeshi is unpredictable. still, I think it’s almost obvious that it’s lucy at the phone).

I replied to your comment about augustus, in the previous page.

Comment ID #217298

Knowing whats happened, we already know it’s Lucy, especially by his surprised/totally-obvious-yet-unexpected-“Lucy- called-me” face.

But what will happen next will be a little unexpected. We know about her dilema with Michael and his obvious blatant lies/scare tactics/possible truth towards Lucy mistreating him but, and we saw how she looked for that little peek out of her door. It seems we’re gonna be left on a rather painful cliff hanger folks. Daunting, yet interesting in some way, shape or form. My guess is that this next chapter, we’re in for one hell of a ride so make sure you’re kept stocked up on water, foods, and defibrilators (incase of random mini heart attacks)

On a totally unrelated “holy **** my heart literally stopped” moment I had upon the last panel…

Comment ID #217307

Is it just me, or does anyone else think that Lucy and Paulo shouldn’t be together? :question: Seriously. Every time there’s a bit of romance between them, I got irked badly. When I read the side-story of what would happen if Paulo and Lucy went at it, I was just raging. Furious Abbey

Now, I swear, if Paulo and Lucy get together and Paulo leaves Jasmine, I’m going to strangle someone. It needs to be Mike and Lucy!

Come on Taeshi, please have Mike realize the error or his ways and realize that what he has with Lucy is something special. Yes, she has been a little bit of a burdon on him, but no one is perfect, and Lucy truly loved Mike deep down. Maybe she didn’t show it too much, but she really does.

Anyone remember when Mike tried to kiss Lucy on the bed after he was in the cold, and his arm slipped from under him? :unsure: I do. And she kissed him back. Paulo is a total Jerk, but at least deserves Jasmine or Daisy. :O ;_;

Lucy has at always been there for Mike, whether she’s been a burdon or a helping hand, she has always been there. That’s what matters. What doesn’t matter is her hitting him. It’s just who she is, and she’s always done it, he’s always taken it too, and for the most part deserved it. Mad Lucy

But I digress, Mike and Lucy should be a couple and I hope that Taeshi does that in the end at least. :)

inb4 it’s Lucy but she’ll just hang up without saying anything else and the last page is dedicated her brooding in the dark room.

No but seriously, hopefully it’s Lucy and she manages to get some cheering up from Paulo.

Crackles May 25, 2012, 12:14 PM EST.

Comment ID #217309

I highly expected that Lucy would call him. The mystery is slowly unraveling. Its funny that Paulo was having a nice dream and then he was air smooching in his sleep. Quite a twist to think it was Jasmine but it was Lucy on the phone. I wonder what she has to say.

Maybe it’s Lucy calling? I sincerely hope that if she is calling, it’s for friendship, not another rebound situation. I understand she’s upset, but I think the best thing for her is to take a step back from the boy drama and look for lifelong friends. She needs to learn to trust the people around her again before she repairs the drama around her.

Comment ID #217334

I think it’s his dad telling him to put the phone back on the charger. Paulo looks so surprised because his dad’s probably using a mad voice or something. Curse you Taeshi for abusing the fact that in comics, we can’t perceive voices. Also Paulo in panel 5 is so much win it’s not funny. I love the idea that one phone call from Jazz can totally get his mind off of Lucy. That’s one of the reasons I think they make such a good couple.

“Wake up, Mr. Paulo.”

*Paulo makes out with the air and does kissy faces O3O*

“Time to wake up… and smell the ashes…”

Oh yeah and Jazz will be hurt, but in one of Taeshi’s drawings Jazz admitted Paulo isn’t “the one” and whatever happens, no hard feelings.

Everyone seems sure it is Lucy. But for some reason I heard ” Paulo” in Tess’s voice.

Actually, I’m absolutely sure it’s Mike. It’s that or David preparing to scream, “AWKWARD.” However, he merely said “Paulo” so they both can prepare for the epic word.

Seriously, think about it. This is a perfect ‘AWKWARD’ moment.

I can only think it’s Lucy. After all, for Paulo to make a face like that, Jasmine is definitely not the right answer, if it’s anybody else he wouldn’t make such a face. :OConclusion, it’s Lucy. If it’s not then Taeshi is truly great as misleading people, and should become a Magician XD. After all a lot of magic tricks use misdirection, since I myself used to be one.

Lucy on the line? Well, you just had fantasies about Jasmine, so stay away from her… or at least get straight whom you like better.
Besides, from what her brother’s saying, it doesn’t sound like you’re one of her favorites. True, Lucy probably rags on all her friends to her family, but it should make you a little nervous about trying anything romantic with her.

Everyone’s saying it’s Lucy.
Honestly, I think it might be Tess.
Lucy isn’t the only one Paulo is crushing on while dating Jazz.
I’m sure Paulo would be surprised to hear Tess too.

It’s not Lucy. It’s Sam and Jordan, they have called to remind Paulo, that he is goner, if he will try to get close to her ;)

Okay, i gotta put this in, while it is possible for Tess to call, it wouldn’t cause that reaction from Paulo. Paulo has pretty much accepted that a relationship between him and Tess is a non-possibility and has all but stopped crushing on her. Paulo wouldn’t be shocked by her calling him, let alone by her just saying his name, Paulo’s shocked because it’s lucy. As she is the last person he’d expect to call him right now, she’s the only one who could get that kind of a rise out of Paulo. Not to mention, if i remember correctly, someone said a while back that Tess is slowly being phased out of the comic (which really sucks because Tess has been my favorite character in the comic).

A cool thing to note is that while Taeshi is generally liberal with blushes, Paulo has none when thinking about Jasmine. Kind of says it all, right there.

No offense, but I sort of want somebody besides Lucy to call. Like I don’t know. Tess. and tell Paulo that Lucy died. #^_^#

or it could be Lucy
it doesn’t really…..matter…..

Ppl why are you keep telling everyone that it’s Lucy not Tess, Daisy or anyone else? It’s obvious that it’s Lucy calling, and if someone tell different things it just mean that he want to make a joke or to show, that he don’t like the idea of romance between Paulo and Lucy. What point to argue about who is calling?

MIKE!!! Called i…wait what, are you sure, you’ve got to be kidding me, well damn, ok everyone pack it up, someone else already called it. :( so close

Carter. XD
Is that anticlimactic enough for ya?

He’s calling to tell paulo he better back off.
Or it’s mike.

But seriously calm down.There doesn’t ALWAY have to be a plot twist. Not with all the devices running amok.
Just let it be lucy.

Am I the only one that is starting to hate Mike yet not want it to be Lucy on the phone because Mike may be right?

It would rly be crazy and unexpected if it was actually Mike calling as a head’s up and confession. Then leave the chapter as a cliff hanger!!
whoo! This is an awesome quick-paced chapter Taeshi xp

It’s mike finally feeling bad or sue cause she’s Lucy’s best friend or it’s Tess going to bitch him out thinking he’s got something to do with Lucy. It being Lucy her self I cannot see , she’s pretty hurt right now. I went threw something like it. Took all my best friends a week to finaly get me out of the funk. Pretty sweet to have awesome friends. Let’s hope Lucy has someone to save her. :(
