Hey folks, I hope you're enjoying your start to your weekend so far! ^_^*

With this, we're finally rounding out the full flashback sequence and returning to the inquiry in progress.

We're well over halfway through this chapter, but we're not quite at the peak of it yet. It's a bit of a slower burn this time, with lots of talking, so thanks everyone for sticking it out so far! We've got a lot more talky-talky to go, but I hope you'll enjoy the ride >3<*

Next update is in the chamber and ready to go next week, so see you then! <3

You can really feel that punch in the first panel.

Re: Alt text, Yes I would have to agree, a very big physical and emotional hurt.

A bit of a sucker punch :')

I would imagine he probably felt like the situation was too critical to explain and using force to get out quickly was the only option. But still, what a heartbreaking way to leave behind the people who saved your life. Left everyone with bad feelings, I'm sure.

As I mentioned last page, I think this is all an act on Stiles' part. Doing everything he can to make it look like HE was using THEM instead of them "aiding and abetting the enemy".

If that's true, it's a pity it clearly didn't work, considering where she is now.

We don't know that yet. I'm not saying the chances look good, but merely being before a board of inquiry doesn't guarantee you will be found culpable.

@mel: No winners on Nemi's side of things, it would seem u-u

So this is where the brute part comes in...

poor Nemi *hugs her*

poooooor Naru *hugs and pats and holds and comforts her*

@alt text: indeed...

R/N: Yayyy, buffer *hugs Rufi* ❤️

This definitely answers several questions, especially the one about Nemi saying "every Danrir I've dealt with has been a savage brute". (thank you Rufi for not spoiling this page for me, btw... I hope it didn't hurt too bad biting your tongue when I brought that up!).

And that being said, I think I agree with Sigpig... Styles did this to protect Nemi, not to hurt her.

DLK~! :D I'm glad if this page helped bring it back full circle, lol. :')

Who knows what was in Stiles' head at the time~ ;)

(well, maybe me, I suppose)

Oofff... I kinda saw something like that coming because of Nemi's distrust to all Danrir at the beginning of comics.. but it still hurts :/

Jarvi-niii <3

Yeahhh, it was a sad inevitability u-u but things are different now for her, maybe? Maaaybe?
