@Anon-S: Because he still loves her more than anyone else. Just as he had to break up with Jasmine because it was unfair to always be thinking of Lucy, he can’t be with Rachel that way right now, because he is still thinking of Lucy. He still has feelings for her, unresolved feelings that won’t change until she firmly gives him a ‘yes’ or a ‘no’ to being with him. Plus, the saying ‘distance makes the heart grow fonder’ is true when you love someone, which is likely partly why despite it all, he can’t let go just yet.

@Sil-kun: You don’t forget about someone you love that easily and regardless, he still has unresolved feelings that have to be dealt with first. Lucy is still #1 in his heart right now and he needs to at least tell her how he feels to know for sure whether he should be waiting, because she has feelings for him too, or moving on, because she doesn’t.

Poor Rachel. There’s also the other part she’s fighting with, the part where she wants to have a family of her own someday, and she can’t really have that with Paulo because he’s a cat and she’s a dog.

So she has a crush on/loves Paulo, but he loves Lucy (wherever she may be) and she also respects that. She knows on some level that he’s always loved Lucy. Paulo might date her, but it would be like Daisy and Abbey…she’d always wonder if he really loved her.

I think Paulo and Lucy will eventually end up together…but I’m not sure how or when that’s going to happen.

There’s also a part of me that wishes Rach and David would get together. I think Paulo would like his best friend to end up with this great girl that he can’t really have…if that doesn’t sound too swingers-party-creepy…

Honestly it’s good that they are taking the time to apologize for past mistakes and to talk about their feelings and the situation they are in. Paulo realizes it isn’t fair to Rachel that he always thinks back to Lucy in the end because he still has feelings for her. Rachel meanwhile is still trying to be supportive of Paulo but this is starting to take a toll on her too because she does really like him but is afraid to say it because she knows how Paulo feels about Lucy.

I don’t fully know what will happen on the next page but it would be nice to see them continue to talk about this and figure out what might be best to do. The two of them have been great together so far and Rachel has truly done so much to try and help Paulo out and be understanding. So as long as they can still be friends in the mean time that would be great.

As for Paulo’s feelings for Lucy it is something he’s going to have to figure out for himself. As of now whether Lucy feels the same way about Paulo or not are unclear and since she’s moved away Paulo has no real closure to his feelings. He won’t be able to move on so easily. Plus he, the other characters, and us the readers, still have no true idea on what exactly to Lucy. A lot of people believe she may have attempted suicide and that’s why she was sent to the hospital and then was sent away (possibly to live with her dad) for help.

As other people have suggested I like the idea of Paulo working hard to earn enough money to get a car and possibly go out in search of Lucy. This way so he can find out what had happened to her and to possibly settle his feelings for her as well. This could possible give some closure and it’ll give us a chance to find out what happens to. Whether Lucy may feel the same way or not is hard to tell. If she did try to kill herself due to the mental anguish she felt then it’s clear she’ll have a lot of healing to do. And her being in a relationship with anyone might not be the best thing right now. So it’s hard to say what might happen. Still it would be something I would like to see if it does go that way. Until then we can only wait and see.
