Well thats a nice looking cake right there…..But what the hell is the occasion?! I can’t think that David’s mom is heartless enough to celebrate Lucy being in the hospital with cake….is it David’s Birthday and we forgot about it and it just HAPPENS to be the day everyone is all depressed and no one can enjoy it and a -BREEEEEATH- I gotta calm down now.

Looks like everyone is feeling the hurt.

Edit: Reread Tae’s comment. Welp, I guess cake is an easy way to….deal with stuff….either to celebrate or to cope by eating delicious baked confectionary. Doesn’t seem like David is going to enjoy it as much as he usually would tho…..This really does suck.

And before anyone says “look at Mike, sitting in bed like a dope. He doesn’t care about Lucy. Hah, he got what he deserves.” Really…..really. While I understand the guy really needs to rethink his choices now, it doesn’t mean that he is a heartless monster. Obviously he is feeling the pain as much as anyone else. Maybe even worse so (besides paulo or, wait…maybe even moreso) Paulo is having a big ole cry about it, that should let some emotions out, but Mike…well you could say he is doing the same mistake as before: Holding it in, brooding about it. The guy really needs to fess up and get the guilt of his actions atleast a bit off his chest to help him cope better instead of roaming around, brooding and moping. So I would almost say Mike is feeling it just as bad as everyone else….its just not being openly expressed as the rest, OR LIKE PAULO WHO IS BAWLING AND BREAKING DOWN AT THE SEAMS.

It seems so, Mike. Let’s see…
Paulo breaks down and has to open up to someone. In this case, Rachel.
Daisy and Abbey comfort each other, and try to get their minds off of it. Probably to no avail.
Sue silently cries over the disappearance/loss of a close friend.
David’s mom makes him a cake to take his mind off it. Doesn’t seem to be working.
Lucy’s family is distraught, with her mother crying her heart out, with Jordan having already done so, while Sam is there for support. Her pets are in a similar way.
Augustus is up on a roof, possibly the same one Lucy was on earlier. Contemplating, I suppose.
Blur ditched home…where he went, no one knows.
And Mike…he already had a guilt trip, involving a quiet breakdown in the street, where he cried over what has happened and what he did.
So now the question is…what will they do now?
