Chances are she doesn’t remember it and he’ll have to tell her. Hopefully it’ll end happy with her telling him he’s made her happier than anyone ever has and that she’ll never drink again. I could just be an optimist, though. Worse case, she could deny everything and then go cry to Mike or Paulo or both even about what Abbey accused her of.

The worst of it is, Daisy’s kinda stuck, isn’t she? She can’t stop loving Mike, but she can’t act on it either. Abbey might not be happy with second place, but that’s all Daisy is capable of giving to anyone. So tragic. D:

Well that was expected. Perhaps that made Abraham to show only now his annoyance towards his relationship was because he took his time to think about the matter to see if was really needed to bring the topic to her or not. Because he knows that can end in a sore closure.
Abraham loves Daisy for real but nobody likes the idea to be used as rebound. She clearly stated still has livid feelings for Michael and if really she can’t feel the same for Abraham then she’s taking their relationship for granted and consolation prize.
Yes she was drunk but sometimes a state out of person brings the heart’s deepest desires.
Yes, she did a lot for him, she was there for him when he needed a hug most, but a very close friend can do as good as that. She never loved him back, she only was in love with the idea of being in love. She did it without intention.
Naivety causes this, and such Daisy is as ready in dating someone as Paulo.

Daisy: “Don’t lie to me!”
Abbey: “Just like you lied about being over Mike?”

I totally understand Abbey. People here are so eager to judge him without ever having been in his shoes. It sucks BALLS to have the person you most love lie to you like that, especially that deep into the relationship like they are. You start to question yourself, “was anything real? Was I just a replacement? Some sick sort of rebound to fulfill their needs until one day I’m no longer needed?” Yeah, you might argue that Daisy was “lying” when she said what she said, but I have to argue against it. If she were over him, she wouldn’t have dreamt of her little Mikey giving her “a backrub”. If she were over him, she wouldn’t have a Mike plushy on display in her bedroom. Plus, from all the older chapters we know Daisy was always insanely jealous of Lucy, so why would she be truthful about that and lie about liking Mike? Seems to me like people are nitpicking the information they like best to suit their preferences. Abbey might’ve not always come off as a nice guy, but he has every right to feel the way he does, and I fully support him.

I actually really like how Abbey looks in this style. Something always just seemed off in the old one, I dunno maybe he looked too old? His eyes just always seemed way too small compared to all the other characters and I never liked how he looked. He looks a lot more consistent with the other characters in this style and I enjoy it :)

Also, they’re both incredibly jealous people. Daisy never really got over Mike which is unfair to Abbey, and Abbey is super possessive and doesn’t seem to like Daisy getting close to ANY other boy, like when he dragged her away from Paulo when she was helping him study, just because they were childhood friends.

I never particularly liked Abbey to begin with. I think he’s too controlling and possessive, he seems to think he has some authority over Daisy. But in this case I feel for him.

Glassman February 3, 2014, 1:43 PM EST.

Comment ID #274270

I agree with everything you’ve added. However, both examples you use to question Daisy’s commitment to Abbey are debatable. The “backrub” was a dream, played more for comedy than for drama in the story. I’m not saying it’s not proof, but it could also be that we’re reading too much into it. In the party she was drunk, so her inhibitions were pretty much nil. Notice how, while drunk, she did not hit on Mike, but rather ask him flat out why he could never see her as more than a friend. It doesn’t sound like she’s pinning for Mike but rather trying to rationalize why she never had a chance with him to begin with. Remember that it’s never been officially stated that she is completely over Mike, just that she knows that the possibility of them being more than friends is not going to happen. Does that make this present situation any better? Absolutely not, nor does it excuse her obviously having feelings for Mike when she is already in a committed relationship with Abbey. Long story short, this is a discussion that has been a long time coming, and it’s time for both Abbey and Daisy to either grow stronger as a couple or lose something important to both of them.

I understand how Abbey feels but its ridiculous he let it stew this long without saying anything. I hope they break up or take a break because Abbey has too many issues, coupled with her insecurity? Doesn’t look good. Plus hes super jealous? She needs to run and run fast.

Btw I don’t know why anyone is acting like she lied to him, she NEVER said she was over Mike, he KNEW she was in love with Mike. She is still in love with Mike but that doesn’t mean she doesn’t care about Abbey too. He has a right to feel a bit hurt but seriously it was no shocker to him and I think thats what upsets him the most is that shes still not over him (which is pretty unreasonable considering how long she was into MIke).

Isn’t he so cute though? U guise. He’s adorbs. But. Those green eyes. Are so similar to Mike’s.

Idk what to say, it all seems pretty laid out on the table right now.

Shots fired.
And judging by Abbey’s current mood, Daisy better be damn careful or else that’ll just be the beginning.

But hey, being called second-best by the one person you though you could trust isn’t exactly all fun and games either.

After all, Abbey has already demonstrated that he would pretty much go though fire and flames for Daisy, if she would do the same for him.

And Abbey looks like a 12 year old, while Daisy looks like a 8 year old.

Comment ID #274283

This needs the happen. Well really it’s easy to see why he’s upset about what happened.. He’s in love with her and she has really yet to show she really reciprocates, though I’m not saying she doesn’t care for him, how much she has helped him through some of his own issues shows that. I just mean it’s almost like she just likes the idea of having sweet Abbey as her boyfriend.. Even though deep down she may not love him as he loves her, and she may not even realize it. Still possibly being in love with Mike isn’t really helping either.
Also in response to something above me, I also realize that Daisy made it clear beforehand that she wasn’t completely over Mike.. But really, he’s been putting up with it and brushing this kind of stuff aside for a while now, they’ve been in a relationship for a while as well. Seriously, Daisy needs to just get over Mike or just stop stringing Abbey along with her and possibly even leading him on..

I really hope they don’t break up. I mean, I get that the whole thing is ~dramatic cats~ and all, but every single stable relationship (platonic/romantic)? Really? Just seems a little cheap IF that’s what ends up happening. Not a dig to the writers, I just hope they’ll focus on a dramatic argument with a mature ending than another soaring emotions heartbreak.

I honestly think Daisy has grown to love Abbey, and I think she’s simply stuck on memories and nostalgia of her ~perfect fantasy~ Mike, rather than having actual feelings for him. Similar to some of the other comments, I think she simply wanted to know why she was never good enough, instead of actually hitting on him or confessing any feelings. She has been very good to Abbey (visiting his mother, staying with him for a year? you must hear a lot of stories) and I highly doubt she’d sit through and help free Abbey from his trauma and burdens if he was just a ‘rebound’.

“tl;dr people not giving teenage girls enough credit”

Abbey gave Daisy plenty of credit, but she wasted all of hers on Mike.
Hence why Abbey has presumably had enough of it.

If she can’t make up her mind before rushing into a relationship, then the incoming scorn is well deserved.

If anything, then Abbey breaking up with her would be a well deserved wake-up call that she needs to sort her feelings out instead of pretending everything is A-OK, while continuously still lusting after Mike

Comment ID #274302

This page and BCB in general pretty much summarizes nicely why I tend to avoid relationships. Sure, it sounds fun at first, but it seems there’s this undying implication that relationships are a partnership between two people continuously denting each other in the head, usually over things they like to do.
That’s just getting to the half of it though. Like much of the instances in BCB, partners will kick dirt in each other’s face, muck around the subject, and when it comes time to talk about it, get highly emotional and turn what could be a discussion into a flat out argument in less that a second.
Yeah, I know they’re teenagers yadyadyada, but I get the same stories from “adults” about the same thing these teenagers go through.
If Abbey has something to say, he should just tell her, instead of being all dramatic about it (irony, since BCB essentially feeds on drama). Man, I remember when I used to be like Abbey for what felt like half of my life and I never, EVER gained a single partner like he did (lucky *******, and he’s pretty much just ******* on it).
As much as a relationship is GIVING UP things for each other, it is also ENDURING and UNDERSTANDING that other partner. If you can’t do that then just go for a one-night-stand and get over it, instead of slogging each other slowly through a trail of coals and fire.

Comment ID #274308

I know what it’s like trying to get over a first crush. Hell, quite frankly I still think I’m still a little in love with her, and it’s been over two years since I let her go. It’s hard, and so I can’t really blame Daisy for the way she still feels about Mike (though the drunken rant was kinda uncalled for :/).

That said, I also feel for Abbey because I also know what it’s like to feel like second-best. Summed up, it’s pretty much the worst feeling in the world; perhaps even worse than just being flatout rejected. And for Daisy to demonstrate it so openly is just like rubbing the salt in the wound, ya know?

I just hope these two can sort everything out in a mature fashion. They are the cutest, most nerdy couple I have ever seen and it’s just absolutely adorable. Be smart about this, you two.

okay guys - Daisy has never lied to Abbey.
She has never said she is over Mike, and she has never said she loves Abbey - she has always been honest with her feelings around him.
I agree with what other people said - I don’t think she was hitting on Mike drunk, more wondering why she never had a chance, and I think it ties into her stupidly low self-esteem and self-image. I think its more about “Why am I not good enough?”.
However, what she did was still wrong, and Abbey still has a right to be upset. They’re both smart, they’re both kind and loving - I really hope they sort this out :)

I agree with flutterbyte. Daisy never said she was over Mike and Abby knew that before he started pursuing her. I think Daisy’s drunken rant wasnt about how she still had feelings for Mike and was more about how Mike (and Paulo and Augustus for that matter) picked Lucy over her even though Lucy treated everyone like crap. It was “Why was I never good enough for you!” sort of thing.

The idea is that if you date someone, you aren’t wishing they were someone else.

It is pretty much assumed that if you wanted someone else, you’d sort yourself out first before dragging someone else’s feelings into your pity party about not having that person.

It says a lot about Daisy’s selfishness.

Meanwhile she’s pushing him for other things and poor Abbey probably thought they were legit in love if she was doing that. Then he sees her here egging him on for “alone time” and its like icing on the cake. She’s just using him. Or it looks that way.

Why do I feel like this ship is about to sink? I mean, I know they can work it out if they really talk through it, but given Abbey’s deadpan stare at Daisy in these panels, it seems unlikely they will stay together. I understand and accept Abbey’s reasoning on this, but it is still sad to see the “nice” couple go through all of this drama. On a side note, maybe things will totally work out and Daisy will say something that will make everything better between the two of them forever!

I’d love to know which browser you’re using and which timezone you’re in. I can’t replicate this problem you’re having with the countdown timer.

Yes Abbey.
Because you need to give Paulo a reason to hit you.

http://www.bittersweetcandybowl.com/c47/p13.html this page has come to mind. I’m sure Abbey feels like he was indeed used by Daisy but poor Daisy probably won’t think so until abbey makes it all clear for her. This will be some drama. It’s a good thing there out side because the furr will fly!

Oh my god, I just binged through the backlog of this comic and it hit me so hard… Author is so freaking mean. I liked Lucy much more than Sandy at first, especially when Sandy said all that without knowing Lucy, but then Sandy was so sweet in person, and didn’t mean it, and would probably be upset with Mike if she knew what happened… And then that happened to Lucy, and I like her again, and these guys just go on, almost still happy for the most part… Well, I can understand that. I’ve felt this kind of pain, there’s not much you can do to stay sane but keep going like you did… Ugh. I’ll check back in a couple months when I won’t want to cry over it…

FFFFFUDGE STICKS. Daisy kept pushing it. I’m so sorry, Abbey. You really do deserve someone better. At the same time, Daisy has been effecting him drastically. I think I see dark under his eye lids… this had to happen though. Or their relationship (or whatever is left of it) would be a sham.

Eh, at least they are face to face, “voice to voice”. At least, when someone will say something the tone of voice will specifics what someone means. Everything will be immediatly clear, no misunderstoods, no mistakes. Eh, wish I could had that chance… But the bad thing is… if someone is going to “emotionally explode”, they can’t hide…

So… Daisy, what are you going to do? If you say that you are absolutely over Mike, will Abbey believe in you? I think he is going to ask her to think more carefully about her feeling towards Mike and him…
I really hope that Daisy won’t cry, or go nuts, or going to panic. It wouldn’t be a good thing. The feelings are terrible. On the other side, this could be something that can make her stronger, and could help her to realize that she doesn’t need anyone.

@ Tails I was thinking more like that time in curtain call. Maybe Daisy and abbey will just go to the movie as friends and jasmine will be there by chance. After all Daisy just really really really really really really likes abbey she doesn’t love him. Maby this is the chapter to were Daisy cast her feelings aside for that ***** door mat known as mike and takes abbey into her hart finally.

@Lickit&Stickit. By no means was I trying to say that Daisy is unselfish and I feel for Abbey. Im just saying Abbey had unrealistic ideas. He knew Daisy had self esteem issues and that she was still crushing hard on Mike. I think Abbey thought if he loved her enough she would stop having low self esteem and stop thinking about Mike. And that’s how a lot of people get into abusive relationships by thinking if they love someone hard enough that they will change and that’s just not the case. I also think Abbey has a “hero complex” because of his abused mother and wanted to “save” Daisy. Daisy may truely love Abbey or she may just be forcing the way she feels about Abbey to get over Mike. I can’t really say I don’t know what she wants. I dont think Daisy knows what she wants half of the time.

@AAnnika I think Abbey is being perfectly reasonable. He always knew Daisy still had feelings for Mike and still wanted to work with her… but I don’t think he can do it forever. Until Daisy lets go of Mike, their relationship probably wont be able to progress. If she can’t, well It wouldn’t be unreasonable if Abbey decided to end it. Abbey has feelings too, and I’m sure he doesn’t want to spend his life going around is circles and never getting anywhere. It’d obviously hurt him to let her go, but it might be better than not doing anything.

@Stevum Obviously. He’s a cat xD, jk. But really, why shouldn’t he be mad? Daisy has A.flat out ASKED for sex(sober and drunk)B. Gotten drunk and C. looked at other guys even though she’s with Abbey(for now) I feel for Abbey. To love and not be loved back. To find out it was a lie Been there, done that. I never really liked him earlier because I felt he controlled a bit too much, but I can see myself in his shoes. We’re both a bit too mature.
I feel evil now.
So I’m gonna try to do plot twists.
*Abbey confesses that both him and Oreo/James have been saying Rachel.
**Mike roundhouses Abbey in the face and carries Daisy of in a wake of sparkles, rainbows, and Chris’ (because he’s) (this sounds realistic)
***Lucy walks by when they’re arguing and to Abbey says, ‘BOY FRIEND!’ And they make out.
Also, can’t wait to see how the movie(maybe Lucy shows up??) And that thing with Rachel and Paulo and the thing with Jordan. Sorry I kinda ranted here.

I’ve noticed that whenever a Taeshi draws a picture of their kids, it’s always DaisyXAugustus.

Well it least it means Lucy’s coming back. :D

Thats the idea yes but often people get together before they’re 100% over someone else. Sometimes it workes sometimes it doesn’t, BUT even though Abbey does have a right to be upset to an extent. He does not have the right to flip out on her over something she said while drunk. Matter of fact what she said was something she SHOULD have asked so she could finally let go and get over the whole thing. Granted not like she did, but come on. He knew she still liked Mike, shes trying to get over it but you can’t just turn emotions on or off like a light switch. And she wasn’t even all over him in a I love you love me back kinda way, she was the only one who supported him and then just basically asked him a question. I’m not saying shes never been selfish and that shes the queen of maturity etc etc but what she did at the party while hurtful was not nearly as horrible as everyone is making it out to be. They really needed to have had this conversation too, I still think they should take a break though. Its not that their relationship hasn’t been nice or even beneficial for the both of them, neither of them is mature enough. It probably would have been better for them if they all branched off and made new friends and grew they seem to kinda stifle each other.


Yeah I really agree with you, I feel sorry for him but he’s being more then a bit unrealistic and immature. He wants to be mature and valiant but he needs to step back and realize he’s just a kid thats had a hard life. He may be one of the more mature ones in the group but they’re all still pretty immature, which is normal.

Oh. Taeshi, you didn’t. Please tell me you aren’t doing what I think you’re doing.
Abbey doesn’t look mad, he looks more sad… like he knows something…

A chance to predict. Hmm. Taeshi always surprises us all. I say that this ship will survive. That’s not all. It’s going to survive beyond its due date. I think that Daisy will tell Abbey that he is worrying over nothing, and Abbey will believe her. These two will stick together even after they should have let their relationship go. Daisy will tell Abbey that she is faithful and that she loves him, and Abbey will hold on because he thinks he will make things better. More pain than happiness will come from their relationship. Those circles under his eyes will get deeper. And they will both rot from the inside out. That’s the saddest possible ending for both of them.

Do you really want this relationship to continue? I think that both of them need to sort out their own problems before taking on another’s. Abbey is already shouldering Daisy’s burden. It looks like she will soon be feeling his. Neither of them are mature enough to have a relationship with the other. It’s like Jasmine and Paulo. So incredibly similar. I don’t want them together because I don’t know if that is what will make them happy.

Cool haha thanks @Suitcase!

You guys really DO love us!!! And read the comments. Haha :) &&thanks for fixing the counter, the false hopes kept me feeling like a dementor was givin’ me the ol’ smoochy-smooch.

And and and.
I’ve been thinking.
What if Abbey is just done with Daisy’s messing around?
What if Daisy thinks he’s referring to the arm-stabby?
What if he just eventually says something like “Daisy, I can’t be with someone who is using me…so tell me. Do you love me, or do you love…Somebody else?”
And then Daisy is all huffy and butthurt because she doesn’t like to have her morales questioned and she’s really just immature, even if she is an honest-to-god sweetheart… She has a lot of growing up to do!

((Dont read the rest of my post, I typed it and then decided to leave it there for exactly zero good reasons, it is the work of satan, it will burn your eyes out, you’ve been warned.))
((Plot twist: Daisy confesses her undying love for David’s Flower girl, and then she has a duel to the death with David over the flower girl who incidentally is interested in Jordan; meanwhile, Abbey is confessing his crush on Lucy to Hayley, Mike cheats on Sandy with Rachel, Paulo dates Augustus and they go to anime conventions dressed like FF characters, Sandy dumps Mike for someone who can actually give her the love and respect she deserves, and then the turtle marries McCain.
And the end.
Because life is only about relationships, obviously.
Double plot twist: Daisy and Abbey break up but it is mutual and they remain friends. Nobody else in the gang ever seeks out another relationship and just focus on being happy and enjoying life with their friends. LOLOL))

I’m sorry, I was cloned and my evil soulless clone typed all of that. It was the dementors I mentioned earlier, they’re secretly white-coat scientists who want to steal my magical plot-predicting powers and use them for evil. Damn smoochy-smooches. I’m not even good at predictions! Steal somebody else’s powers!

How could you destroy the only perfect, stable, AND working relationship? They have to be with each other! If it wasn’t for Daisy, Abbey could have never got through the things he did!
(Side note: Why Daisy? Just why? First of all, Mike’s a lost cause. He has Sandy, and if he didn’t have Sandy, he’d have Lucy. (That’s right, I’m a MikexLucy fan!) and second of all, he’s already told you a billion times THAT HE DOESN’T, AND WILL NOT EVER, LOVE YOU! After all those times you cried and whined about about nobody liking you ‘cause you’re ugly’n’stuff, (Which is not true. I think you’re really pretty, even if you don’t have a ‘figure’.) there are only two guys who really like you and the first one’s Abbey, who is your boyfriend and best friend! (Next to Paulo of course) and then there’s Augustus, who I think is okay, but he should be a little more subtle in the future. (However, on the Bittersweet Candy Bowl Baby Quiz, they have the ABSOLUTE cutest baby in the whole world (Next to the PauloxMolly baby, but that’s horrible shipping Well, not as bad as the PauloxLani (The teacher) ship. Bleh. ))
