Why do I feel like this is going to turn into an awkward conversation about the sex? :nope:

I had a feeling Abbey would act like this, and that Daisy would be wanting this sort of intimacy (since she’s insecure and all…)

LMAAAO XD If I had been drinking when I read that I woulda done a spittake. I’m not too surprised of either of them, just hope Daisy doesn’t try to force it. Abby probably wants to wait till marriage or is insecure that she really loves him (and not still Mike or even Paulo) and doesn’t want to go that far until he’s sure.

Abbey being awkward and Daisy being kinda annoyed. I have to admit, I did not see that happening…at least, not in this particular manner.
So it looks like Daisy was the one to instigate this occurrence…I guess she actually got what Tess meant after all. Unless I’m assuming too much and she just wanted some EXTREME CUDDLES from Abbey. But with that look in the third panel…probably not.
Dang. Seems like we underestimated her. Though she IS in the same grade/age group as everyone else, so I guess it shouldn’t be a huge surprise that she would know…

looking at both their expressions in the last panel I’m going to assume that this isn’t the first time this has happened. Abby stop being a baby and make your girl feel “special” I mean at most, she probably just wants to make out with a lil caressing

:/ This isn’t that suprising to me, considering the events that took place in New Beginnings. Daisy was the one who said “NO BUTS!! I’ll prove it to you!! I’m going to kiss you!!,” so it makes sense that she would be moving in the relationship faster than Abbey.

Nikary August 13, 2013, 1:56 PM EST.

Comment ID #256502

Am I the only one that doesn’t think this is out of character for Daisy or Abbey? Abbey prides himself on his gentleman nature and loves her deeply, but he also has a lot going on within himself - dealing with the whiplash of living in an abusive environment, trying to deal with said issues and the fact that he found out his mother passed away months ago. That feeling stays with you. All this can contribute to Abbey not feeling ready or not wanting to go much further than sweet make outs. The next step doesn’t have to be sex. It could be more passionate make out sessions, fooling around intimately or even oral sex, but not intercourse - which seems what everyone is assuming is the next course of action for them.

Daisy has had her insecurities and whether or not she has fully dealt with them, she at least feels comfortable and safe with Abbey. She loves him, and feels like she can be herself with him. She knows he accepts and loves her for who she is, and that’s one of the biggest turn ons for women. She might not be wanting the bone, but she does seem to crave more intimacy, which is nothing unusual regardless of how she is as a person. She’s probably thought a lot about it and is ready, this may even be her way of throwing a hint at Abbey that she wants to experience more, even if it’s just passionate kissing and body’s mashed together while their legs and arms intertwine lovingly around one another or full blown sheet shaking love making.

Just because a person acts one way in public, doesn’t mean they necessarily act the same way with their intimate partner, or when it comes to intimacy itself.

lol, I hate to bring up the infamous pair again, but this reminds me of when Mike tried to kiss Lucy, who was promptly turned away.
Setting that aside now, it’s sweet to see the two get intimate. Daisy, very surprisingly, is taking the lead here contrary to her rather innocent behavior. She’s obviously enjoying herself and it’s good to see, but Abbey on the other hand appears to be the hesitant one.
He’s kind of got his foot out the door, but he needs to step out all the way. They got great chemistry together, but Abbey has to figure out how to take his armor off once in a while. He’s had a rough past and Daisy is someone who’s willing to make a connection….if he’s willing too.
I understand he’s being cautious, but the more defensive you become, the more put off Daisy is going to be. What these two are doing, it’s one of those “Yes” or “No” things, not a “Kind Of” thing.
Anyways, always good to see characters come together (or at least trying to). Frankly, I think there’s been too much division lately.

Comment ID #256510

It always sucks to be the smart person with self-esteem issues. All the intelligence in the world doesn’t fill in the insecurities and emptiness, no matter how put together it makes you look. People assume that nothing’s wrong when you’re quick to the buzzer. People are intimidated by the intelligence. So romance happens ever so infrequently, that by the time there’s a spark, there’s enough fuel to burn the world, and there’s little control. Inhibitions, whether good or bad, fly out the window when you happen across someone that cares. I empathize Daisy, I really do.

On a slightly different note-

Those Panel 3 eyes have followed me from Panel 18, Page 12, Love My Way. I’m sure someone’s already mentioned it, and the attitude from that chapter to this is the same, for previously stated reasons. But those eyes. They say “I know you’re uncomfortable, I know you’re nervous. But I’m not. Far from it. I’m going to control this situation. I’m taking control.” Because as much as it seems like she can and should, she doesn’t experience much freedom. People who are tied to grades and perception of self never feel like they have control of their life. Again, I empathize. Not a healthy life habit, you should be seeing Abbey’s counselor, too, but I empathize.

This chapter isn’t filler, anyone who said such a silly thing. Expounding on something besides the main plot isn’t filler. It’s what makes great novels and films. And webcomics. Every story needs at least a second plot. Can’t wait until tomorrow!

Comment ID #256517

@Amber not being ready for sex or feeling awkward about it doesn’t make Abbey a “baby” - different people mature at different rates and nobody should EVER do anything they feel uncomfortable with.
Especcially since Abbey has a lot of issues, sex is probably to “close” for him right now - he might take longer to be ready and there is nothing wrong with that.
I’m guessing Daisy feels annoyed that he’s pulled away, but I doubt it’s because he’s not ready - I think she’d appreciate him talking to her about it.

Ramona August 13, 2013, 3:03 PM EST.

I don’t get why everyone thinks this is such a surprise. Daisy, when she wants something, will try to get it, in any way possible. And just cause she’s acting like this with Abby doesn’t mean she’s not sweet and innocent in public. Haven’t you guys ever heard the saying “a lady in the street but a freak in the sheets”. In my opinion that pretty much describes Daisy right now. I just hope that this doesn’t cause some big fight between them that ends it all!!

@Ramona I said nothing about sex and it’s my assumption that this isn’t the first time this has happened between the two, where Daisy might have wanted a little more than just a peck on the lips. I believe she just want to possibly passionately make-out.

I’m thinking that this occurrence may have happened at least 3 times already and Daisy is annoyed and probably doesn’t understand the awkwardness being displayed towards her.

My reasoning for saying Abbey’s actions towards her being that of a baby is because if it did happen more than once, I think there should be an explanation instead of “Do you want something to drink?”
I never said it was wrong of him to feel that way it’s just that I personally would like for Daisy to feel wanted after that whole fiasco with Augustus and then her thing with Mike.

LOL I’ve been on both ends and I know how both ends are probably feeling.

While a lot of you are interpreting this as “Daisy wants to bang,” I see that none of you are seeing this as “Daisy wants to make out, and Abbey got a bit too excited and got embarrassed by it, and Daisy is annoyed because she wanted to make out/is seeing Abbey as wussing out without understanding why.”

Damn Abby. Don’t you know that’s one of the worst things you can do when a woman initiates sexy time is pull back and change the subject. All the women I’ve had a relationship with say the same thing. Talking about why you don’t want to be sexy at the moment is ok, but just pulling away and pretending like she didn’t initiate sexy time is like slapping her in the face and telling her she is unattractive and you don’t want to touch her ugly body.

This is pretty much what I figured would happen. Abby is obviously not ready for a more physically intimate relationship, and who’s to say Daisy really is, either? She’s attempted physical intimacy with people before for all the wrong reasons, so there’s no REAL proof that it’s different this time. All we know is that she’s taken the initiative and Abby’s reacted pretty much exactly how I expected him to.

I said it in a previous comment, but I’d honestly be perfectly happy if these two keep their simple, innocent, non-sexual relationship up and running for a while. There’s so much sexual tension already in this comic, what with Paulo and Lucy, Paulo and Rach, Paulo and Tess, Jess and Lucy, and Mike and Sandy. Who says every teenager ever needs to be sexually adventurous and sleeping with their boy/girlfriend? Relationships are about more than just sex, and I enjoy seeing that there are a few characters at least who seem to understand this.

Huh… for a second there I though Abbey had an “accident” and that’s why he stopped, but after reading the comments I guess it’s more plausible he got shy (or got caught by surprise by certain bodily functions) and backed off.

What worries me is the reason why she’s doing this. It might not be that out of character but give the situation I’d think she might be acting out for the loss of Lucy.

Eh, who knows. I just want Paolo and Abbey to accidentally kiss.

I think Abbey was like “Tess was right” and he was maybe not ready?… I don’t know normally it would be reversed but since Abbey’s a “gentleman” that’s why he didn’t continue.

I think that because we’ve been seeing Daisy at her sugary-sweetest for a while, that we all forgot that she *does* have a wilder side. Daisy does really like Abbey (I don’t remember if she’s said the “L” word yet), and Abbey loves Daisy, but he’s too much of a gentleman to push her. But she does have a headstrong side- she’s probably going to make him more uncomfortable. Ah, young love~

I was thinking a fair amount about possibilities of where Lucy is going today (Was at work, bored out of my skull :x ) One of the more interesting ideas is that she’ll be traveling with her dad as he goes from each race. It would be interesting if she got to sing the anthem at the start. Something that went off her looks and voice, not personality, seeing as she’s probably shut off from virtually anyone outside her family now. Might explain why she down right refused the ‘make you a star’ offer too, she might already know she’ll be doing the anthem. Still doesn’t explain the hospital though. Anyway, just an idea I wanted to throw out there.

P.S. It would also be hilarious/mass drama if someone of the group saw her on T.V., maybe Paulo while his dad is watching it.

Also sorry for bringing up Lucy again, I know it’s getting a bit annoying. At least I’m not just bitching about the fact she’s gone.

This is where the concept of “Wearing No Clothing” becomes awkward!
Daisy: “What’s wrong Abby?”
Abby: “Nothing! I totally do NOT have a chubbie!”
Daisy: “Mwaaa-ha ha!”

@freyaros123 : I disagree: There’s plenty of reasons other than that which could place Lucy in the hospital. And then let her out so quickly, eh?

For this excercize I will now characterize the sections of this comment section

Casual: Hurp durp Abbey’s a guy lol Daisy’s innocent because she’s a “good girl” everything before was just a phrase she’s really just the nice girl forever. So surprised that the gentleman lets the lady move at her own pace instead of lets the animal rise up until he haggardly begs her permission.

Serious: @Casual, you’re all idiots

What Serious should be doing: IDGAF casual, hey look a reason why no clothes is a bad thing on some days.

Me: Dicks.

For me this is backwords from what i thought. I thought Abby was going to push sex on her and go to far. The title suggests one of them will push it and the other will need boundaries. With how extreme abby can get about things in his life i just assumed he’d be the one pushing while daisy cry’s in a corner for him to stop. However we all forget how daisy isn’t all that innicent. She wants guys to take it a step further with her. She’s always taken a back seat to lucy’s beauty and never got the attention she needs. Its funny because she is a pretty girl. My guess is not annoff cats have approached her and declared they liked her, mabey even to shy to. For a pretty person she can get insecure just as bad as any other character in this comic. I thinks she’s pretty. However sometimes she’s drawn kinda wide? :question: Has she been gaining weight throughout the series? Is it perseption? I’d realy like to know so i can figure out y she’s insecure, **** she’s adorable if u ask me.

Comment ID #256611

Abbey probably just got a little too excited with that kiss and got embarrassed about it and pulled away. Believe me, it’s happened to me before. Daisy’s expression in the last panel is probably because she doesn’t know why Abbey pulled away and might be thinking that he doesn’t like kissing her. She’s also probably thinking what the hell is happening and why he’s suddenly acting all shy like this. But there’s no way he hasn’t been thinking about doing this kind of stuff with her, especially since they both spoke with Tess. He wants to do it, but might think that Daisy won’t like it or won’t want to.

After reading a lot of comments I noticed a lot of people actually have some misconceptions about these two characters.

For one, this is not at all out of character for either of them. Abbey is a gentleman and prides himself on treating women with dignity and respect. It is completely understandable on why he would pull away. He probably feels that by his own desire to want to do more, he is disrespecting Daisy and that makes him pull away from Daisy and her intimate advances. Even if Daisy makes it clear that it is something she wants to do, to him, it is still disrespectful, and may even stem in part from Paulo constantly teasing him when he first came around saying he wanted to “bone” Daisy. He really loves and cares about her, and he would never want to disrespect or hurt her, which is the major reason why he shrinks away even when she is ready for more.

Though, how much more Daisy wants, we don’t really know. We do know, that back when she went to the fair with Mike, she was more than willing to take charge. Even though Mike was obviously uncomfortable, she was willing to try and force herself upon him, even if it was only cuddling and kissing at that time. She probably feels that by being intimate and taking control, assures her that she is attractive and in a manner like others are attracted to Lucy and Tess. It makes her feel like she has more power and can be as attractive as the two she feels take away all her attention from the various guys she likes. This is not a healthy practice though, and with the wrong guy, they would be more than willing to take advantage of that insecurity and need to validate her attractiveness.If you look back at the incident with Augustus you can see the ramifications of a guy who wants to take advantage of her need to validate herself through these kinds of acts. Even if in the story it ended up leading to Augustus not getting his way because of Abbey stepping in, he could have done a serious amount of damage. She should feel very lucky that the men she has around her, truly care for her and treat her with respect instead of taking advantage of her.

For two, this does not make her bad at all, it just makes her a teenager who wants to know she is attractive, and who may feel sexual urges like all people do. She may end up pushing him farther than he is ready to go, which would be bad, but being attracted to, and wanting to be intimate with your boyfriend does not make you bad. Abbey is not bad for not wanting to go all the way right away either, in fact, it’s the opposite. Abbey is doing the very right thing by wanting to wait, even if his method of doing so may not be the right way to go about it.

All in all I think this is a very good example of both of their characters and how they end up non-compatible when things start getting a little steamy until both of them get more open about talking about what kind of intimacy they want in their relationship.

Also, as a side note. Daisy’s facial expression in Panel 3? “Dat Rape Face”
