Author commentary

Veronica: This last page shows off the fact that Paulo is actually meant to be really handsome.. in a scruffy way. That’s why the girls start gawking at him.. even Yashy who tries her best not to let it get to her.

I wonder if Paulo knows that Somali’s tend to have “significant dental problems” that can lead to them not eating. Maybe this could manifest later along the line as an eating disorder…. I smell even more angst!!

My cat has white fur and blue eyes. She’s a ragdoll~ But about the comic, I started reading this, and for some reason got an inexplicable feeling of nostalgia. :3 I love it, and will continue to read it.
