Kind of a lot going on with this page…

We come full circle with all three of Rain’s closest friends failing to be able to tutor her and save her grades. For the record, I don’t know what “that symbol” may be. Originally, I planned to show some actual math to demonstrate what Rain was having trouble with. I later decided making stuff up would just be funnier (what with some bizarre mathy symbol that confounds Rain endlessly). Just imagine that one symbol that you hate seeing, or make one up and then curse its existence. ^_^

The other portion of the page focuses on a strange and cryptic note Rudy finds in his locker. Are girls starting to confess feelings for him now that he’s posing as straight? Is Todd looking to fisticuffs? Is Maria looking to fisticuffs? Really, it could be pretty much anyone.

And yes, I handwrote the note myself. I tried to make look like it wasn’t written by me, but considering nobody online probably knows my handwriting, that may have been pointless. Silly me.

Rain, all characters and all other aspects of the story are copyright material belonging to me.

Also, if you enjoy the comic, please vote for "Rain" on TopWebComics!

Hmm... I don't think it's Todd, because I doubt he'd call Rudy by his name like that. Plus it's not a very macho-ly worded letter. (Although there is the chance that Todd was in the closet all along and only beat Rudy up as a smokescreen.)
Maria gets plenty of time alone with Rudy anyway. She could really beat him to a pulp any time she wanted.
As for other girls getting feelings for him, they'd know it was a bit futile, seeing as he has Rain.
My personal theory is that it could be someone like Brother Arthur, looking to have Rudy explain his sudden change in sexuality in confidential.

Don't answer me, whether I'm right or wrong. Time will tell and I don't want to be the cause of any spoilers. =P

Gavin would be my guess.

That or Drew (I think that was his name) is coming for advice! XD

I also went to a catholic school where they taught us cursive for whatever reason. Nice touch

I choose to believe the symbol they're looking at is "+"
