Well, she came back extraordinarily quickly, didn't she? :P Also, in case you thought, 'Wow, this Solare guy came out of nowhere'... he didn't. XD;;

Oh, and:

Have some really cool fanart of Nemi by the extremely talented zartala, creator of the webcomic Eternity Complex. <333 Thank you so much, zartala!!! :D

If you're wondering why the chosen colour palette is a little trippy (XD) that's because it's part of the 100 Palette Challenge! Which you should TOTALLY check out if you like pretty art and links to really talented artist profile pages and other ComicFury webcomics you may not have spotted. :D (We've nearly actually hit all 100 palettes up O_O <3)

Okay with that, today's update's a wrap! See you on Friday~

Kylie: I shall point disapprovingly at you!
Cain: W-Wha-?! But... But what did I-
Kylie: *poiiiints*
Cain : ;^;

Also, this makes me wonder how long ago Cain has had the chains. It's probably mentioned before, but... I forgets XP

XD <333 Awww! Poor Cain!! I wouldn't want to get pointed at disapprovingly by Kylie, either. ;^;

And don't worry, it hasn't been mentioned before. XD; He said he's had it 'for a while' and it's been noted it's been 'years' since the attempt on Abel's life, but this comic is the first time Cain states an exact time period. Not that he necessarily has had the curse for as long as he's been a cleric. ;)

It's not really spoiler material and it gets clarified much further down the line (either this chapter or chapter nine or so) but I can tell you that Cain has had the curse for four years now. :) FYSN. (For Your Spoilerific Needs.)

XD Aww Saari-nii~~ hehe, Kylie's just got a lot of intention! ;)

(as Rufi hugs Saari, sudden stomp stomp stomp sounds appear from behind as Cici appears out of no where and chases them... with no intention)

Wow, he became a Cleric AFTER the curse! Unexpected.;D And for only three years, goodness.
I guess if you're exiled, it's important to keep busy.
Oh boy, Kylie is back already...I wonder if she'll apologize.;D
(That alt text! Nemi is too cute!)
(Yay, Nemi fanart! Adorable!)

Correct! :D <3 Hehehe, I imagine so. XD; "I was once a prince and now I'm not. What do I do now? *bored bored bored*... *tends sheep*... oh hay mebbe I'll become a cleric"*

*is not an actual depiction of what happened

And Kylie, apologise? Pshhhh. That's not in her vocabulary! :P*

*is not an actual fact and may contradict what actually happens in-comic

And yeah! Nemi gets more love! :D And offsets the Cain Factor a little bit XD;;; <3

I love how Nemi acts like a kitty...and everyone totally goes with it <33-- SO CUTE!

Ooohohohoo I can't wait to see what Kylie's gonna say! She sure didn't "get some air" for very long! XD...musta been too angry perhaps?

This is a great page! ALL your pages are great pages.........I love this comic. Have I mentioned that before? :3

If you know what Kijini are you like, you just kind of go with it XD they just randomly go around flopping onto laps, tugging at curtains and napping in sunlit spots, so you just have to deal with it! XD;;;

And yeah~! Kylie is the type of person who can be irritated and give silent treatment over things... But when it's serious awkwardness, she can't stand it for that long - she has to resolve it. (Unless it's something she can't do anything about.)

And heeey I think you DID mention that before... many times! You crazy Serpy XD; *huggles* <333
Lukkai 8th Jan 2015, 10:22 AM edit delete reply
The cause for return is obvious.

She noticed Nemi trying to occupy HER place!


But more seriously: Seems as if she has come to a resolution. Knowing Kylie so far, I'd expect it to entail lots of training. (She's looking great in that fifth panel, by the way.)

Nice to see how Cain avoids the subject of what he actually was.

And funny fact: I actually had my cursor right over panel four when reading the alt text. (^_^)

Trying to imagine Kylie casually sprawling across Cain's lap is making me crack up just imagining Cain's reaction. XD;;;;

And yay! Thankyew, I had fun drawing Kylie stomping her way back, hair streaming. XD;;

And yeah... Cain... "What were you before?" "A prince." "Oh, okay. WAIT WHAT" is probably an exchange he doesn't want to have. XD; That said, he wasn't technically incorrect in what he said. :)

And yaaay glad that alt-text is working out for peeps XD <3

"Listen up Cain! Since you don't know how to be a proper claric I'M going to do it for you for the next chapter or two and YOU can watch and learn how a REAL and claric acts."

"But- but- but- what will I do!?!?"

"YOU will just have to take my place on the front line and try not to die. Here, put on this chain male."

"I already have chains don't make me put on more!!"


But really. This joke make me think: I'd laugh so hard if one day Cain's chains block an otherwise fatal attack. Must be some advantage to have a magic chain snake coiled around your body.

rufiangel
LOL poor Cain XD; if Kylie could cast a heal or two though that could totally happen! Hahaha, not sure about those chains necessarily protecting Cain as they are actively trying to kill him whenever possible but he does have ways to use those chains to his advantage. ;) we'll see it later this chapter!

Darn it I had this secret theory that everyone was calling Cain a noob because the chains were limiting his ability, but that he was actually an experienced mage and too shy to disagree with them.

That theory's out the window. ._.
rufiangel 11th Jan 2015, 6:25 PM edit delete reply
rufiangel
LOL! Oh Roux... XD;;; I'm secretly thrilled you had a secret theory XD <3

Well, you're not entirely wrong - the chains are still, to an extent, hampering his ability even after the loosening. But experience-wise, I'm sorry... XD;;; *gives the theory a parachute to float gently down as it goes*

Awww... He is petting Nemi <3 :D

Wow, foreboding soundeffects to Kylie entrance...

Now, Cain gets it...

Nemi gets a lot of petting, actually. It's her thing. If she pokes her head into your arm or ribs, she's looking for a petting. XD;;;

Yup, and she is behaving nicely :)
(most of the time)

only a few cloths have disappeared - but that was to be expected - she needs a nest after all... ;)

Cain just can't help himself can he?
