For the sake of keeping things moving I felt it was unnecessary to show Sarah's squirming confession and cut to the effects of it instead. It's also been a chance to compare Lucy's relationship with Sarah to that of Janey's to Kirsty.

This is a very well-crafted page. I think the way you presented it worked really well (we didn't necessarily need to see Sare's cringe-worthy confession). And that last panel is perfect.

@kidcthulhu: Thankyou :)

Well, well, well. Well done Sarah. And I feel sorry for thinking she'd try and squirm out of it.

Interesting approach by Sky about fast forwarding through Sarah's confession and focusing on the reaction to it.

And a rather shivering ending to this strip with Sarah realising that we can never forget our first loves. Even if they ended badly. (In death for Lucy, and in betrayal for Sarah.)

But perhaps the really important point (or question) is while we can never forget our first loves, can we still move on from them?

@Fruitbat44: If this had been a finished work to be read at the readers leisure I may well have done that extra page but as you guys have to wait a whole week between updates I often feel I should try and keep things moving if possible.
And yes, first loves do seem to have that hold on us I feel, I know mine did and although I've not seen her more over 20 years now I still count a lot of those first experiences as being something very special because they had such an impact on my life at the time. My own feelings about this page are that it's Lucy and Janey who are the ones who really find it hardest to let go because they both have a degree of guilt over being the ones to ruin it.

@skyangel: That's a valid point about keeping things moving. And interesting one about how Lucy and Janey's feelings towards their firsts are also shaped by guilt.

See what happens next.
