Just want to apologize for all the cliffhangers. I know a lot of you folks hate that, but with a scene like this, it's kind of hard to avoid (lest I post a single update consisting of like six or more pages... which would break me). Try to look on the positive side though. This scene is the rest of the chapter. No cutting away to anyone else, or anything. One way or another, before we close this massive chapter, there will be some sort of resolution to this scene. What sort of resolution, we'll have to wait and see next week.

But at least it definitely won't be like a certain TV show's recent season finale, and leave you wondering who Rain even confessed to for the next six months. XD

That out of the way, what are your thoughts on all of this so far? It's been a long time coming, but as a lot of readers brought up on the previous page, this might not have actually been the best time for Rain to finally confess. Yes, the advice she got from Allison and Chanel earlier in the chapter seemed to imply she should just go for it. They didn't exactly know the specifics of the situation though.

And then, Emily's response? What does that mean? Well, there are a lot of things it could mean. But does that mean this confession is doomed to fail even though they both have feelings for each other? Or is their getting together indeed "inevitable at this point"? What do you think?

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

I'm going to put this out there the creator of schlock mercenary has a strict amount of space he uses, and has been updating forever. He's ended on series of cliffhangers before, slowly moving the story forward. I'd rather have the regular dose then you holding them back and releasing all at once.

Every time I visit I am in anticipation of what happens next, its a great story, Keep up the great work, and see you again soon!

From the hrs updates that are here or there within the comic Im pretty sure the author is a girl. :/

I meant the author or Schlockmercenary in that regards, using him as an example for our author of Rain.

You're pure evil. Did you know this? XD
(Spoiler: we actually love you!)

What show are you referring to?

I don't even know if Emily really thinks what she's saying or just wants to make Rain happy. People are complicated! They should just kiss if they love each other, and say no if they don't! :I

We don't know Emily's mother, though. Things could be complicated because of her, right?

The Walking Dead is the cheeky reference.

I appreciate the apology, because this is probably the biggest cliffhanger we've hit since I joined the readership. Like, wow.

I'm starting to wonder. Did Chase rape Emily? I mean, not in the technical statutory way. The only reason I'm doubting that is that she said last page that she doubts he'd do anything crazy, but that relationship could've been a lot more abusive than we were let in on, and that can create an inappropriately trusting/forgiving/justifying mindset in the abuse victim's mind.

Regardless of what is said, though, next page (and probably the ones coming after it) will be big. I'm eager.

uh oh, emily is tearing up and doesn't look happy
this is not good :-s

Uh oh! I just had an ugly thought. What if the reason Emily is crying is because she will be moving far away soon, yet hasn't found the courage to tell anyone. I know it's not very likely, but I thought I'd give my 2 cents. XD

How soon are you talking about? I think it's still late February in the comic (or is it already March?). I would think if Emily is moving, it wouldn't be until August, for college. I think the baby is due a bit before college would be starting (based on the rough timeline of things). As such, I could see why she would think it wouldn't work out. She'll be pregnant until sometime in the summer and then leave for college. There's no time to have a relationship in there. Interestingly, I haven't heard any of the cast talk about college, but it does seem to me like Emily would be the kind of person who would definitely go to a four-year college right out of high school and not a commuter school at that.

Ouch cliffhangers -

Honestly, this is a tough one. Emily is pregnant, making everything that much more difficult (And Rain is transitioning, they're in a Catholic school that has no tolerance for this, Chase is a creepy ex, etc.)

It may be for the best to not make anything official.

But then again, waiting sucks.

You should've called this chapter: Love, trust and a whole lot of cliffhangers!

Cliffhangers are the only way to write these, I don't blame you.
