Listen Rach, he done got his heart set on a pretty little thang called Lucy. AWAY, TEMPTRESS
But seriously, what was she expecting? She kinda took advantage of him. Is that supposed to lay the foundations for something deeper? Not bloody likely if you ask me.

Well, I guess that makes everything a-okay. She wants to help in a non-sexual way and Paluo should of trusted her with that. Welp… good luck with that Somali, you’re gonna need it to get out this situation.

Well that clears up the did they didn’t they from the start of the chapter.

I can see violence being applied to to Paulo in the next couple of pages, cause i cant think of any documented situation where telling a girl to stop it end well for the speaker.

You better apologize and talk it out later Paulo :nope:

Just oh my, I wouldn’t though shell get that easy mad now when she clearly saw he was a total wreck a while ago. Good just for one lay? Didn’t she said “a one-night stand never hurt anybody”? He didn’t ment to do it…oh well, atleast he knows what went trough Lucys head when she was all down… sorta :P
Looking forward for moar pages!

To people who are apparently confused:
Paulo is treating sex like a big deal when it’s really not. She’s not necessarily looking for something deeper. She just wanted to stay friends with Paulo and go on like normal.

Comment ID #254452

lol, it’s interesting to think how quick Paulo used to be for “bagging” girls when he was in eighth grade or somewhere around there. It was almost difficult to turn a page, without having a panel where Paulo was flirting.
Now he’s all shy and chivalrous about it. I think I can recall as far back as when Rach and Jess were just “screwing” with him (puns are great), when he started to treat sex, I mean “loving” like a sacred thing.
Since then and especially after he made some sort of secret pledge of love to Lucy, anytime he sits near a girl, he acts all nervous about it like it’s a sexual act just to be breathing the same air.
Ease up, something a lot of these characters need to be doing.

so first paulo gets tess and lucy mad at him when he sleeps with jess and rachel, then he hurts jasmins feelings when he breaks up with her. After that he yells at daisy and makes her cry, twice. And now he’s made rachel mad at him by treating her like a hole in the wall.

Nice job. You’re officially a pig. Lol

Comment ID #254464

…I just gained a whole lot of respect for Rachel. Up until this point, I essentially saw her as a loveable pervert. I understood that she was deeply loyal and perceptive, but I always found her “sluttiness” a little freaky.

When I read this page it suddenly occurred to me that perhaps sex just isn’t a huge deal to her. It’s something pleasurable, something that comes with affection and not something to be treated as a dirty secret.

Maybe that’s a weird revelation, or one that will be explicitly disproved, but I kind of think it’s pretty cool of her. Certainly I’m inclined to sympathise with her more than I do Paulo, despite neither being entirely at fault or blameless.

1 - How come people are putting th eblame SOLEY on Rachel for the sex? News flash - sex takes two people. I don’t care how distraught he was, I’m sure if he’d have said no, or even hesitated she would have stopped.
2 - I think Rach views sex differently to the other characters - she sees it as something pleasurable. He probably came on to her in his grief, and she has a crush on him - but she doesn’t see it as something filthy or gross (which is healthy) - I think she’s more disgusted at him using her in his saddness and then refusing to act like a friend than his rejection of her

Once again, failure to communicate is going to make big drama bigger .-.

And as much as I like Paulo as a character, I realize that he’s one of the worst when it comes to maturity here. He makes just about every beginner’s mistake he can. Always the hard way with you huh Paulo. No pun intended.

Comment ID #254503

Rachels’ statement implied that Paulo was the one to initiate what happened, as opposed to Rachel pusbing herself on to hom. Just my thoughts I guess.
And agreeing with previous statements; Rachel doesn’t see sex like its something forbidden or slutty or anything, its a means of pleasure. Which is probably something that would’ve helped Paulo had he not been unconditionally in love with Lucy. Again though, just my thoughts. :/

Comment ID #254511

Okay as much as I love Rachel, you are all being complete jerks to Paulo and his emotions. What Rachel did to him was rape him in a time of need. Paulo wasn’t in control of himself and she took advantage of that neediness. Paulo is actually reacting much less harsh than he really should be, HE SHOULD BE THE ONE UPSET WITH RACHEL. SHE HAS NO RIGHT TO BE ANGRY WITH HIM. He has every right to feel awkward and not okay with having Rachel help him out right now because the last time she tried to “help” all she did was **** him.
Anyone calling Paulo a dick/jerk/a-hole over this page needs to step back and realize what the **** just happened.

Wow paulo. Just wow. U managed to **** off">******** the happy go lucky w h o r e. She’s scary mad. I love how he said stop it at the end lol. I’m not convinced they had sex. She hasn’t confiremed it yet. Ah Racheal, don’t give me the death glare but, u little hippicrit. The line “all i’m good for is a lay” made me laugh because so far racheals character has been the girl who’s only good for a lay. She said so her self a one night stand never hurt anybody. She’s the kind of girl who can sleep with u and be your pal afterword. What i believe is going on is she’s hurt because she’s always adored paulo. She’s been pihning over him forever. Paulo the once woman izer, who needed a head count for every girl he’s done something with, is now a sex is sacred cat. He wants lucy so bad that doing anything with a girl, even a high five is cheating. Are favorite little w h o r e i believe loves paulo. I have a feeling next page is going to be her yelling at him that they didn’t realy do it. Paulo says he doesn’t remember a thing. I feel a flashback comming on. O and Rach, please don’t hate me for saying u are a w h o r e. (Nooo she’s giving me the death glare) D:

Im waiting for the point where she says “Psyche! We didnt sleep together”
idk honestly whats going on anymore :question:
a few pages back we saw rachel giggling as Paulo left, now was that because she was playing a joke on him? or because she was happy about getting laid?
Now the way shes taking it so seriously? is she still winding him up? or is she actually offended now? even if they didn’t sleep together?
It doesnt make sence because a buttload of chapters ago, Rachel admitted to being a “giant ****” so why would paulos awkwardness offend her?

No, Rach, sex is not the only thing you’re good at, but you don’t get the order right. First you get close with people, then you sleep with them, not vice versa, you dumb-dumb.

Past couple chapters have pretty much explained why I don’t have a high opinion of Paulo.

Since Lucy is gone, maybe the idea is for Paulo to lose all reason, fall into depression and kill himself?

Next up: Alienation?

SHE took advantage of HIM when he was in his darkest hour. What’s she got to be angry about? HE’S the one who should be angry. Mad Lucy

Ugh, I know it’s only a few hours till the next page, but I have to say it. Has nobody considered that Paulo didn’t mean it that way? I feel like Rachael is just interpreting his words wrong, and Paulo is understandably weirded out by the whole situation. He’s only, what, 16? He’s pretty normal, and Rach is getting mad over (in my mind) something that he didn’t mean.

EDIT: Oh, and how do we know she took advantage of him? I feel like it was more of a thing Paulo agreed to, in his distraught state of mind, to distract himself from Lucy.

I think that one of the big things here is that even IF Rachel is pulling Paulos leg and they didn’t actually sleep together (this time), that Paulos akward reaction towards her, being almost literally offensive, hurt Rachel’s feelings, expectations, and probably even her pride.

Whether she thinks that sex can be enjoyable from a casual aspect, or how many times she may have slept with people in the past has nothing to do with this, its Paulo’s reaction towards here (however misunderstood it may be from both sides), and how it will affect their friendship/interactions from here on out. Even if she was playing around with him at first, it doesn’t mean that she can’t get hurt by what he is saying if he honestly believes that they DID do something.

I really like that 5th panel. Rachel is just so beautiful in it :love: and you can really see the emotion, poor her, she seems really offended… :(

I feel like every girl that Paulo has slept with is like a object rather than a person… except for Lucy… But technicaly he DIDN’T sleep with Lucy but he loves her a lot… This is all VERY confusing… :(

Okay, this is seriously ****** up. Rachel takes advantage of Paulo when he’s upset, and then everyone is outraged he doesn’t maintain the relationship. If it were a dude manipulating a girl, there’s no way it’d get the same response.
