I find it interesting to compare how Lucy and Laura's grand reunion affects Sarah as Lucy's gain is obviously Sarah's loss. One of the reasons I side-stepped this in previous pages is that if these feelings had surfaced earlier she may well never have pushed to find out the truth about Laura in the first place; so I like to think Sarah's sense of adventure and strong morals helped to supress any concerns she had about losing Lucy in her quest.
It's also worth noting that this page is only Sarah's perception of how she views the situation. Like me, she tends to make judgements about other people without confronting them and also avoids them out of fear it will only make her feel worse! In a more balanced view though, Lucy may have known Laura much longer than she's known Sarah but she's also been out of touch with Laura for several years so her feelings for Sarah may well be stronger.

Next week: Sarah's in for a surprise which helps lift her dark mood somewhat.

Have a nice week :)

Hmmm I'm like that too. But depends. In some situations it's better to be sure what's going on. Sarah might be worrying for no reason. Like you said, she might change her mind. I hope Janey returns!

A tough page, but a necessary page that's also incredibly well executed.

As always, very curious to see where this goes next, even though it means one step closer to the end.

I would want to deal with that my self either and would handle it pretty much the same.

It's very sad for Sarah, but she did the right thing, and deep down, I think she knows it.

Of course the smutty side of me is thinking the solution to this is "ménage au trois" or maybe just a threesome . . . I lock up my smutty side now. -blush-

But, no, ultimately Sarah did the right thing. Pragmatically, there could never be happiness between Sarah & Lucy with Laura's ghost between them. And for Sarah to aid and abet in maintaining a lie would be even worse. Having the truth out in the open, and laying the "ghost" to rest is for the best.

And this surprise for Sarah sounds intriguing.

@skyangel: Giving up love is like stopping a drug addiction cold turkey. It's the same chemical in the brain.

Sarah's 'strong morals' say a lot say a lot about you, Sky.

In frame 6 (ease off on the shading, you have a colourist for this) you mention depression. Depression isn't a state of mind, it's a disease, and some people are immune against it. I'm one. Medical science is working hard to find out what causes it and how to cure it.

Suicide is a common cause of death with depressives. This is a tremendous waste of life.

The Victoria University of Manchester is surveying us non-depressives, and the study is beginning to show results.

'I used to care, but now I have a pill for this?' This could be a reality soon.

It's not something special we have, it's something we lack. There is a chemical in your brain we don't have, and this chemical serves no purpose whatsoever. Like an appendix, it's an evolutionaly leftover.

I wish I had a good friend like Nikki in my life, she seems so sweet all the time.
Sarah's decision must have been hard, she has all the right to feel sad over her loss. You can question whether Lucy and her would ever have a truly great relationship if Lucy's mind was still stuck on Laura. Maybe Sarah didn't have much of a choice to begin with...
