Sooo... kind of an odd one. Not much really seems to happen here. But remember how Rain and Emily got together at the end of the last chapter? The original plan was to cut it off after Rain confessed and Emily listed off all the reasons why they shouldn't get together. This chapter then would be largely the same as it is (although it would start when they get to school), with the two girls dodging questions and keeping up the ambiguity. It would finally be at this point, that Rain and Emily kiss and there'd be a lengthy flashback to what was the end of the last chapter and the beginning of this one, circling back to this point. It would be mother of all cruel cliffhangers, but that WAS the original plan.
And honestly, I still like the flow better of my first plan. >_>
But I changed it when my SRS date was still set a bit sooner. Had that been the case, this chapter still might not have even started yet by now while I recovered and THEN we'd still have to go through this chapter before finding out they had gotten together. I just thought it'd be nice to leave you on the up note while I would be gone for all that time. Then the surgery got postponed, and my change was moot. :P
But I felt keeping this page to show the two sides of their relationship was important. The public image they showed at dinner with Fara and Jess last week and most of the rest of the chapter at school versus how they are together behind closed doors. I then just added Emily mentioning how Maria found out so some kind of information would be brought up and this page might feel more substantial.
TL;DR - This is a weird page, but I promise it's not just gratuitous kissing for the sake of kissing. Not that I think anyone would complain about that, but I don't usually do things for no reason, so I thought I should clarify.
Rain, all characters and all other aspects of the story are copyright material belonging to me.
As I've been saying for a while now, I'll be going for SRS on July 26th. If you've been with me long enough to remember my cancer surgeries, you know there's going to be a lengthy hiatus for my recovery. I probably won't feel up to drawing much. Fortunately, Chapter 29 wraps up later this week. So unlike my previous surgeries which cut things off awkwardly mid-chapter, this break will be a little more controlled (like any other planned hiatus). The comic will return with Chapter 30, but I don't know when. That depends on how long it takes for me to feel like I can sit upright and draw for extended periods again. I will keep you posted throughout my recovery though, so you know when that will be.
Anyway, you support is still (and will always be) welcome. ^_^

Aways one in every crowd...
Both of them are extremely cute on this page
This made me feel very happy in a time things are not going so good for me. Thanks :P
@Anna Rei: Great to hear.
Hang in there.
@Guest: Yeah I am doing better. My Doctor told me I should get my SRS done cause of health problems being I am Intersex as caused me. It is one thing to want some thing and completely another to be told finally you should after all the fighting with them. I am Gender Fluid but identify mostly as female and prefer to have a female body. I think the male part of me as I identify as both is not ready to give up the ship yet. I got really sick form all the worry and stress form thinking about getting my SRS Done. This is my first time really thinking I would is that normal? I think my Self Protection in my mind caused it. I felt like some one had nearly beat me to death and was in the ER two times in one day Sunday though that never happened. Just one of the many things we go thru. I am not surprised now there are so many who do not make it and die. Really I thought I was going to for a bit. :P
That's so cuteee
This is the cutest thing ever!
Nothing wrong with gratuitous kissing!
