Mike, the look on your face is PRICELESS!
Why does Mike look more devastated that Paulo?

This is just what Lucy needs. A new life with a new start. Abrasive, abusive, and defensive Lucy returns!
OR maybe she will start a new and meet a nice guy, someone who actually likes her and has the balls and brains to show and proof to her annnd… Hello my new ship 8-)

But the rest of the chapter will be about Mike finally having to confess to reality:

He has a fetish for girls he cannot see.

And so his friends will begin a long, painful transition where they try to make Mike come to grips with his obsession and finally date a real girl. Amaya will realize she had misunderstood what Mike had said all those years ago. But Daisy has mysteriously vanished as well. I wonder why she isn’t showing up to school now either…?

And now the fallout will begin.
Didn’t think it was going to be THIS drastic. I thought more along the lines of being transferred outta class. I wonder now where she transferred to. Another school? Homestudy? Boarding School? Being forced to live with Sam? Sent off with her father?
Starting to ache for those 5 a weeks due to the sheer suspense! Patience is a virtue though!

Bittersweetness rears it’s ugly head once more! I say this because it can be a good thing and a bad thing.
Pros: Lucy could use some space from Mike, be her own self and start over anew. Learn to be a stronger person and not have to rely on Mike. That and I’d love to see how Mike behaves, know that the “parasite” he hated oh-so much has left him. I mean, he shouldn’t be complaining or placing blame on no one now. He has his girlfriend and not Lucy clinging onto him. It’s all he ever wanted, right? Now he has it. Anything otherwise could be… Hypocrytical?

Cons: Lucy will be away from her friends… She’ll be all alone like she use to be.

…That’s about almost all the cons I can think of, honestly.

Hahaha! I love how the top three are just “What, why?” And the bottom three are all “WHAT!?”
Anywho this page actually threw me for a bit of a loop, I knew it had to do with Lucy and her not being at the school, but I didn’t think it would entail a permanent absence like this. I was thinking more along the lines of, ‘Lucy will not be with us for a short amount of time.’
Guess I was wrong.

It’s interesting to see the contrast of emotion between Mike and Paulo. At least the way I see it, Mike looks more shocked, while Paulo just looks like someone shoot him in the back. He just looks devastated.

But yeah, Mike, see what you did?! Now you’ll have to explain to everyone why Lucy left the school. The spotlight shall fall upon thee. At least I hope it does. Oh the drama would be amazing XD

Also, I guess this may explain Lucy’s make-out session with Paulo. I guess it was meant as a sort of good-bye to him.

I know Lucy wont be gone for good, but I’m still super excited to see what happens. (Also, I still wish Lucy had accepted the offer to be a singer. =< She deserved it.)

1) Yay! First comment I’ve made on this comic!!! 8-D 2) Who couldnt see this coming after the way the last chapter played out? Mike finally apollogizes, but its too little too late because of whatever was being talked about in, 30 Seconds to Midnight. THEORY TIME!!! 1) Is Lucy moving away? unsure: 2) Is Lucy going to another school in town, or being homeshcooled so its not that big of a deal? :( 3) Will, everyone force Mike to tell them what he said to Lucy that started all of this? D: 4) If so, will Paulo beat him to death for it? 8-) 5) Someother fifth thing?!?! Only time can tell! 8-D

Just because she isn’t attending ‘that’ school does not mean she is moving :/
STOP BLAMING MIKE! He is replacement girl is leaving him. His crutch is leaving. He got what he wanted. He had a goal and he achieved it! Don’t cut the man down.
Better for Luce anyway. Seeing how Lucy adapts to a new life, will be pretty interesting. I imagine at first she will nervous(VERY) . This is a good chance for her to start a new and live a life! Not that dysfunctional and ****** life.
Now what Paulo and Mike do from here is what I am curious about.

OH hey Drama welcome back! *hugs drama* Oh wait get the **** out! *throws drama*

“That’d be nice”-Lucy
Well now we know :(

Yeah I noticed Mike looks more devastated.

@Lime Cake
She might have taken the offer. Once your a singer you never really go to school again.

Ah so the time has come for our young yet confused star go into the shadows of destiny. Will she become like Sandy? Will there be competition? Is Lucy becoming something shes not? My lord just thinking about it makes one crazy. Even crazier, will Paulo search for her or will he beat the live Sh*t out of Mike since he was the last person to see Lucy XD

Well, Lets see this as one last good cliff hanger before June which is only a couple weeks away now.

Also, I’ve just realized that there are SEVERAL uses for the phrase “Breaking Up”. Is this chapter going to have karma kicking in and instead of Lucy’s world continuing to fall apart, will we see Mike’s world begin to fall apart? :question: Once again you have cought my intrest… Continue! 8-D

Marioseventeen May 15, 2013, 12:30 AM EST.

Comment ID #245707


Given that the first two pages were outright stated to make fun of Degrassi-esque situations, I highly doubt she’d suddenly become a singer. That’s not even considering the fact that Taeshi made the manager as generic as possible (not even giving him a name!). If she really did become a singer, I doubt Taeshi would’ve left him nameless in the inevitable “Convince Lucy not to be a singer” story after this.

Besides, that would end up not explaining what Lucy’s family told her. It’s pretty obvious that what they told her had something to do with this.

Edit: Also, I actually think Paulo’s even worse off than Mike in the panel. Mike is sad-shocked, but Paulo’s one step beyond that: he looks like he is so shocked and dismayed, he literally has no clue how to react to this.

Also, Taeshi, what do you mean by the “I wish this landed on a Wednesday” comment? This IS the Wednesday comic >_>

Deiser May 15, 2013, 12:30 AM EST.

Comment ID #245708

Well this just confirms what I have been worrying about. Her family managed to take Lucy out of school and and if she moves away there will be a very low chance of her being happy anytime soon.

Daisy, David, and Abbey: What?
Sue, Mike and Paulo: No!
Me: *sigh* Well, at least Sandy will be happy with her new friend.

is she going to a boarding school? where she can has kawaii japanese school-girl uniform? oiii

&&idek about you people saying that Mike looks more devastated. In a way, he certainly isn’t happy that his attempt to fix what he’s wronged has been thwarted by this change of schools, however…. Look at Paulo’s expression. It looks like he’s just been stabbed. Mike is like, more open-mouthed in shock, but Paulo has that “..hrrk” expression of an anime character who’s just been stabbed and defeated by an opponent….

“will we see Mike’s world begin to fall apart?”-Marioseventeen
That gives me lots of ideas… The wall scratching! It lives!

Taeshi might not know any famous or big music people. Do you? Not singers or bands.

Who says she is moving to Rickter?
Lucy knows who Sandy is. Lucy knows that airhead is partly the reason why Mike did what he did. I doubt Lucy will ever becomes friends with the one who stole Mike’s heart. :nope:

Question: Does Mike look more devastated than Paulo?

You want me to look at it and tell what I think? Or tell you if it is too much?(not lengthwise)

supertails19 May 15, 2013, 12:40 AM EST.

Comment ID #245718

My theory about why Mike’s so shocked is not that he’s secretly become enamored with her since the play, but that this reminds him of the other time he’s had someone he cared about suddenly leave right as things were going well. Anyone leaving can’t be pleasant for him after Sandy, especially not if he got it in his head that Lucy and he were going to start over and be friends again.

Lol this kinda made me laugh. The last time we actually saw Lucy non-flashback, she had a ‘I know something you don’t know’ smirk when she accepted mikes renewal friendship offer.

I guess this was her way of going “oh you wanted to be friends again? This is what I think of your offer! I just totally ditched you jerk face! How do you like not being told things!?”

Mikes face looks like he just got betrayed or something. It amuses me because sweet justice for Lucy. Paulo just looks shocked. It needs to sink in for him. Maybe he’ll take his anger out on mike?

“Who says she is moving to Rickter?
Lucy knows who Sandy is. Lucy knows that airhead is partly the reason why Mike did what he did. I doubt Lucy will ever becomes friends with the one who stole Mike’s heart.” -TheRealSomeone(akaSomeone.

My mind is telling me that might be the new scenery that Taeshi was talking about in her commentary today, but I am most likely wrong. Although, it would be interesting to see Lucy show up in Rickter, meet up with Sandy somehow, and Sandy absolutely doesn’t recognize her(Why would Sandy recognize how she looks if she didn’t even remember who Lucy was? :smirk: ). Lucy could keep track of Mike through Sandy and even though Lucy would be hundreds of miles away, she could always know how Mike is because Lucy and Sandy will be talking about the one thing they have in common: Mike. Well at least that is how my mind put it together :D.

@xom: Paulo will pierce the heavens to be with Lucy again! Or you know he’ll drive to see her as soon as he gets his license… or maybe just ride his bike to wherever Lucy is(yeah I think this one works best 8-)).

@N-master: Go get some chocolate milk… that will make your unnecessary rage disappear(well it works for me :x).

I really like how Sue Paulo and Mike seem to be more in shock about it, of course Daisy and Abbey’s positions in student government might have meant that they’d heard rumors floating around and just ignored them (hence why they seem less taken aback) and David… well… he’s david…. and Sue Just looks so… “But I thought things were getting better” Paulo looks all heartbroken and ****.. Poor Boy. and mike… I don’t know why but I get the feeling he has some sort of inkling he had somehing to do with it. granted the play had Just finished when he’d made up with Lucy, pulling a child out of a district (or even just a school) takes awhile, ergo, whne Lucy still thought mike hated her. of course I may be overestimating his perception here, but I’d still like to be positive about the characters.

Also, Sue’s probably so dismayed because her whole play was in vain. Assuming Mike sucked, that does mean Jessica’s in control. But mostly, just that she put so much effort into it all trying to be a good friend to Lucy, and it didn’t work out.

OH I was waiting for Karma? It’s here Mike!

based off the ‘Ask Roseville High’ I doubt Lucy would become ‘friends’ if she would interact with Sandy, Lucy may make it ugly. Lucy could also use Sandy to find out how Mike is. But If Lucy finds out… I am hoping Mike isn’t missing. Why? That is my favorite ship! Why? Here is why… I don’t know if I could bare to see Lucy when finds out he misses her… It will be heart breaking!
Will they finally realize they love each other and get together.
I can picture the scene!

In the park they walk up to each other. Feeling awkward. They are both lost at what to say. They would take it slowly. Still not knowing what to do despite being back together for some time. And ultimately… Mike would be the first to say those magic words. “_ ____ ___!” for Lucy to be slightly shocked and blush saying “_ ____ ___ ___!”

Mike: You know…if you’re interested…we could start things over.
Lucy: That’d be nice.

Well it all makes sense now. Lucy really did mean to start things over. At least, she’s starting things over. She’s starting over with a new beginning. Well Mike, you did call her a parasite, said you hated her, and pretty much ignored her. So you got what you originally wanted. You wanted her gone, and now she is. Oh now, you didn’t really think that she would stick around after being scared to death (almost literally) like that, did you? Ah well now you know.

Not entirely his fault though, I am sure there is a side to this that we don’t know yet. Sure explains Lucy’s willingness to start over her friendship with Mike. Now they will only be able to see each other on the odd day, assuming Lucy is still around in the ‘hood…

Well Mikey boy, you got your wish…and all it cost you was Lucy’s sanity. I hope it was worth it… ._.

Seriously though, I would be very surprised if Mike doesn’t land himself right into Paulo’s crosshairs for his shenanigans…IF Lucy go bye bye because of Mike, that is.

Yeesh…all this suspense is giving me grey hairs. :P Now that I think about it, his long distance relationship with Sandy has very little chance for success (learned that the hard way, I did) He & Lucy could’ve been something special. She was always there!! Furious Abbey

I finally see why Lucy doesn’t think twice at the chance to knock the fluff outta him Mad Lucy

………. but Taeshi……… it IS Wednesday!

…Yeah, we all saw this coming. I think the one I feel more sorry, out of ALL of them, is Paulo. The guy thinks he’s finally scored, only to hear that Lucy’s gone away. I don’t think he’s going to deal with this well :( . But ya know, even with them probably kissing, I don’t think Lucy/Paulo would’ve ever happened anyway, had Lucy stayed. Lucy basically said “Let’s make out, dude” last chap, not an “i like you” or “date me”.

Ya know, looking back, I’m starting to think she bargained (what we were speculating to be) her going away AFTER the play during the New Years chapter. And by the time of the play, she probably already knew she was leaving, and probably only considered making out with Paulo….. well because she was leaving , and she probably figured “why not? it’s not like I’m staying anyway… in case he’s lying and probably hates me too, like Mike said”. I wonder if Augustus knew…. assuming she DID talk to him after getting off that building.

Taeshi, are you sure this is legal? Don’t get me wrong, I love the plot twist and I’m sure this will make for great reading, but are you allowed to just… Move Lucy out of the comic? I think this might actually be against the law!
Also, Mike is totally gonna just fall in love with Lucy now that she doesn’t go to the school anymore. I think he has a fetish for girls who are far away.

@paulosawesome: As long as the focus goes to Lucy and then back to the others then everything should be fine. No need to panic unless somebody ends up in the hospital with amnesia… because that would be the moment I say: :/ really? And then proceed to question my sanity again.

We won’t go the telenovela route. At least I hope not D:. Meh -_-, I’ll just trust whatever decision Taeshi and Suitcase make with the direction of this comic(they haven’t disappointed me yet and most likely will keep up their unbreakable streak of just being amazing :)).

Is it okay that I’m hearing “That’d be nice” as “Oh now you want to be friends? Well f**k you, I’m ditchin’ yo sorry ***! Peace motherf****r!”

Also, Lucy’s leaving will not be the end of the comic. We’ll probably just get the usual switching of POVs that we usually get, so Lucy will not be gone from the comic entirely. Though I am excited for the upcoming drama :)

Guess: Mike wouldn’t be relieved of Lucy’s departure. Mike will realize that even though he can love Sandy more freely now, he’ll feel like he’s missing something. No more snide comments, no more bops on the head, no more harsh words, no more awesome gaming partner, no more flirty banter. Let’s face it. Lucy has been there throughout his childhood, and he has been there for her, and that won’t go away easily. Mike will try to be happy, try to be relieved, but he’ll realize that he can’t be normal without Lucy.

Meanwhile, Lucy will try to live her new life, wherever she is. Boarding school? Maybe. She’ll either still be herself or become a new person, either make new friends, or make none. She’ll try to turn over a new leaf, but she has no Paulo to support her, no Mike to rely on, no Sue to lead the group, no Daisy to talk to, no David to punch in the face.

Either way, oh my ****ing GOOOOOOD, I’m so excited for the next page and the POV change and Lucy in her new school, perhaps the one her family was ( possible ) talking about during New Year. OH MY GOOOOD, the anticipation is ****ing killing me.

lol, I like how everyone in the top panel has big eyes, but everyone in the bottom panel has small eyes.
Anyways, I guess she ain’t going to teh same school as Mike and plus.
I hope this doesn’t go Super Saian Way with another page of all six of them just staring at each other. lol that stuff got pretty flat fast in DB-Z. “Ahhh, I AM STILL CHARGING MAI LAZER BEAMS!” And “I AM STILL WATCHING YOU CHARGE THOSE LAZER BEAMS!” This has been another fine episode of DB-Z. WHAT IS THIS!?
I am pretty sure Lucy left the school for more than just because of Mike. I mean that’s a pretty teenager thing to do, leave just because of one person, oh wait they are teenagers.
The thing is her family is probably involved in her movement to where ever else it is she’s getting moved. It should be very interesting, seeing as BCB will be breaching into a different environment with potentially different people.
Also, Rukral? That comment wins so hard. Loved that freakin show and I had a computer game for it back when I was but a weeee lad. For some reason that science teacher reminds me of Washu from Tenchi. Must be the red hair and do. Okay, orange hair, whatever, the hues are close.

Ah! Finally find out what “Breaking Up” for.
From now on, Taeshi need to “Fight on Two Fronts”, unless she wants to delete another character like what she did to ******.

If Lucy goes to another city and can meet up Sandy or someone else,
the Cast of Characters will even be increased.
Else if this news is not true or Lucy and her parents change their mind,
nothing will happen.
If Lucy really goes out of the four lead roles (Mike, Lucy, Paulo, Daisy),
someone else can replace her (maybe this is a way to form a style transformation) and she will stay in important supporting roles (other characters).

—If so, no matter what is going on, there is no giant loss.

That moment when things start to click.

When Mike came to make up, she didn’t say, “Alright, let’s start fresh.” Not exactly, anyway. She said, “That’d be nice”, as if she knew they wouldn’t get that chance. And she did - that entire conversation she and her family must’ve had offscreen was them denying her a say in things, for what they believe to be her own good.

…This begs the questions “Where is she going?”, “Are her family sending her to another school, or an institution?”, “Do they really think this will help her, with her already-abrasive personality?”, and most importantly, “Will she even get better?”

Depression’s a long, hard fight. She won’t just magically get better within a few weeks, or even a year. It’ll take time, time in which she may or may not see her friends. Which may or may not make things all the better - or worse.

I know the way this was delivered was for the shock and drama stuff. But I honestly think Lucy would at least tell one of her friends that she’s either moving or not going to the same school as them. I’ve moved several times and some of my friends had moved away as well and we told each other if it was possible.
I know Lucy is depressed and angsty, but seriously she’s known these guys since she was a little kid. I think they deserve to know when a friend of theirs is leaving.

Such a shocking plot twist that makes me feel similar to their reaction. It was starting to look good, but its likely that it wouldn’t be that easy for them to have the good ol’ days they they once had again. There are still some events that are waiting to unravel though.

Lucy leaving the Roseville High gives Mike and Lucys’ starting over a bittersweet moment. A rebirth of their friendship suddenly becomes futile as she moves out of his life, thus ending it. If she doesn’t go anywhere else, they may have the chance to fix their friendship. If that isn’t possible, and she moves to where Sandy is and becomes reaquaintedd with her, then she could reestablish her connection with Mike and slowly rebuild their friendship. Mike will feel sad feeling being away from both his girlfriend and his childhood friend. Both made a great impact on his life regaurdless of what bad things they brought upon him. He’ll feel an emptiness inside of him and sadness will bring him down.

Paulo will feel sorrow for not having the chance of being with the girl he loves. This, too, is a sadness the lover boy will feel. Even their friends will fell saddened by this as they cherished Lucy as a good friend regaurdless of her behavior torwards him. I would hope for the best, but I must know how the story will unfold. Perhaps more can be elaborated next page.

I think Mike didn’t actually cause this and that it was predecided.
And I have a hunch that both Paulo and Mike feel bad for this; Mike, well, because he was being a complete *** up until recently and Paulo because what most people think that happened in that room may have not actually happened (Paulo has done this before ….or not done, *wink-wink*). Lucy might have switced schools to simply get out of her depression, or she might end up in a madhouse and later be transformed into a sinister ever-smiling mastermind using her twisted cunningness and the other people from the madhouse(who will be dressed as clowns) to rule Roseville,
but Batcat will kick their cat butts! 8-D

not surprised. this happened to a few dear friends of mine when i was in high school for similar reasons - severe depression and other self-harm related issues and so they went to schools specifically tailored to help people struggling with that stuff. i assume lucy will be either be put in a program/rehabilitation center or a school for students with mental illness, judging by the interaction with her family a little while ago. it makes me sad because none of her dear friends will be able to help her or (possibly) even talk to her. this is especially heartbreaking considering mike’s change of attitude last chapter, and paulo having just poured his heart out to the girl.

A man suspected such might be the case, but now he wonders, does the story follow the main group or follow Lucy.

Mike was being quite a….. Anyways, Mike ended up regretting what he’d done and Lucy accepted his apology.

So as my grandmother(probably wouldn’t) say, “Don’t steam the dumplings any longer than you have to.”

In a incredibly inaccurate guess, I’d assume that Lucy was kidnapped by the music company and the call that came saying that she wouldn’t be attending the school anymore was to deter any suspicions.

This, of course, is an absolutely silly accusation.

Why so surprised Mike?

You got what you wanted your “burden” is leaving and your relationship with Sandy is safe.

Maybe he’ll go it Lucy’s house so his brother can turn him inside out. I would if somebody had pulled that crap with my sister in high school.

Okay, this is better than suicide attempt.

Now let’s see the nature of the end to attendance. Another school in the city, another city, another state? How far away exactly is this going?

And I hope for her sake that she finds a new environment in wherever she’s going and gets better… Though we’ll see of course. And that also depends on if she’s moving out from her actual house…

YOU RUINED EVERYTHING GAHHHH GO CRY TO YOUR PRECIOUS SANDY. UGH. BIRCH WOOD TREE. ÒnÓ. Sorry, had to get this off my chest. But seriously, its all mikes fault. I really do approve the LucyXpaulo ship though. I feel so bad for Paulo. He broke up with jazz for her and now she’s transferring schools. (And a bit bad for mike, seeing as he caused this problem. My guess is that the group will put two and two together and see that mike caused this, and be pretty mad. Bleh. But I totally saw this coming. After all, there had to be more drama soon, with no killing)

I knew it had something to do with Lucy (most of us did, didn’t we?).
My prediction for next chapter:
Mike is crushed that Lucy either
A: Moved out of town
B: Just moved to a different school

He realizes that he was wrong and that he loves Lucy. But now she’s gone and it’s too late for him to confess. U never know a good thing till it’s gone.

You know in the whole conflict between Lucy and Mike, I think they both had done wrong, but I think if Mike had a problem he should have brought it up much sooner than 12 years into their friendship. To me that seems a bit ridiculous and in my opinion he took things way way too far with what he said, apology or no, it doesn’t make up for it. Especially since he had an equal hand in their various fights and arguments and in fact started some of them. So honestly I’m not surprised Lucy won’t be in school with them anymore, I doubt I’d go back either if I were her.

Not sure I get what you mean by how nice it would have been for this scene to land on Monday or Friday unless it has to do with the cliffhanger/new start factor, but you said something about an entire new scene on Monday. How is that the case if it updates again on Friday? XD
Also, the suspense of this combined with the sudden whammy of suspense given by Naruto today has me wanting to punch something until I get the next Naruto update. I almost to the same spot with this comic, but not as much, because I was expecting the teacher to say Lucy would no longer be showing up (wondering why that’s such a massive announcement, unless it’s because Lucy’s voice became a school phenomenon), and I’m only really curious about why and what’s going to happen as a result. I still seriously hope that Lucy is going to continue to be a main character and continue to be a part of the group, though, as having her no longer hang around these guys would just be annoying as all heck to me, and we really don’t need a second troupe of friends and another boyfriend for Lucy, even if she deserves a fresh start. I would much rather have Sandy break up with Mike followed by Lucy and him getting together, followed by some more comedy for a while. Enough of the massive drama, this comic started as a comedy, and it needs to bring that back for a little while, while still retaining the little amounts of drama here and there that it once had.

For those commenting as to why the teacher is ‘announcing it to the class’ for reasons of relevance…aren’t the main group all in different classes?

This would assumably be Homeroom…where everyone meets up before class for announcements. Thus, everyone would at least recognize everyone because they meet every morning. o___O

—I guess their emotions are:
Sue: :unsure: / :question:
Paulo: :question: + :O
Mike: :unsure: + :( + :nope: + ._. + :O + :x
David: 8-D + :x , (10 seconds later) + 8-D
Daisy: :question:

—Some forecast:

If Lucy goes to another city and can meet up Sandy (”K.i.z.u.n.a” is not expected) or someone else,
the Cast of Characters will even be increased.
Else if this news is not true or Lucy and her parents change their mind,
nothing will happen.
If Lucy really goes out of the four lead roles (Mike, Lucy, Paulo, Daisy),
someone else can replace her (maybe this is a way to form a style transformation) and she will stay in important supporting roles (other characters).

—a dry joke may do help:

If Lucy find Sandy:
Mad Lucy : Mad Lucy
:D : :D

—In the end,
I would like to say “Tomorrow, Better”.
Actually, 17.7 hours later.

Can I just say, their teacher is really really pretty!

This explains Lucy’s distant behaviour in the last chapter. Being friends/friends with benefits with Mike and Paulo respectively will be a lot easier if she doesn’t have to see them every day, at least from her point of view.

Still, this is going to completely throw the dynamic of the rest of the cast. Excited to see how this is handled!

@Doctor Nuclear

Apparently you don’t know about the status of the censored character. She is a fancharacter whose presence in the comic was pulled once her creator asked Taeshi to exclude her from any future appearances. From what I understand, because of that and of the massive outcry from the fans for a “farewell” chapter dedicated to her, she became un-personed from Volume 2 onward. Her name is banned probably to discourage further discussion of her.

It’s probably in your best interest not to work around the censor. Though I don’t know if it’s the case here, but on other forums, users that keep doing so come down with a sudden case of banned.

I finally understand this picture:
a (official) last scene ➡#7037(a dog with a Japanese name)

And know why there is no more art work about that girl in Candyboour later.

Since it is impolite to talk about the dead too much. (But I think it is no more polite to use ****** to replace her name.)
I’d better end up this discussion.

This scene and situation, although I expected it, made me feel emotionally distraught. It might help that that is the situation I am in now (leaving school for extreme depression), but I feel that even if I wasn’t it’d still be heart-wrenching. Not just for Lucy or the others, but both!

When in depression, you usually cannot see how much others love and care for you. Even when it’s completely obvious that you have great friends like Sue and Paulo (and Daisy, Abbey and David, even if they’re faces aren’t as dramatic), you just don’t see the goods. You only see the bads. Her family thought the best thing to do was a change in scenery. Sometimes, that actually helps out a lot! Sometimes, though, it makes the situation worse. It all depends on how the person handles the change and what the change it. It might be nice for her to have a break from Mike, even if he just apologized. Taking a break from some classic BCB drama would be good for her!

@josh lawless and anyone else wondering why Lucy would leave: http://www.bittersweetcandybowl.com/c73/p4.html and http://www.bittersweetcandybowl.com/c73/p17.html … Looks like Lucy didn’t really have a choice. She didn’t put up much of a fight because… well why would she, considering all the events that happened before then i’d want a change in scenery too… just to get away from it all. Lucy might not be happy with the decision, but there wasn’t a really strong reason for her to stay at the time her family made their decision :(.

@Chesire Neko~: I already have snacks for the potential fight/chase scene that Mike might get into(Paulo is not as fast as Mike, but all he really needs to do is chase him into a corner and hope he can get one punch in). I may not approve of senseless violence, but I think i’ll be fine with watching 2 boys fight because of a girl :smirk:.

@RPGnerd: Thanks for the positive feedback #^_^#. I’ve had plenty of visitors on Jasmine’s Day Off and it makes me happy that my story is doing so well(although I still worry about screwing up with the ending which is I’m doing the chapters in big chunks and changing scenes a bit before I post them… hopefully it will all be worth it in the end :unsure: ).

I have an announcement to make.
Lucy will no longer be attending this school
Because she died
Laughing at a TV show the moment she was killed
of time to study for her finals. So she ended it all
with a period, and went to make a sandwich. Her body was found
Sleeping like a baby the next morning. Unfortunately
it caused her to miss the bus. So she ran across the highway
Where she was struck
By a fully loaded 18-wheeler.
She was so struck that she decided to leave this world
And run away to become a professional truck driver.
