Back to Vessa and Patty! If you want to read their storyline from this chapter in a row, start on p.221 and read through til p.224, then jump to p.233 and go til p.236. Although… if you need reminders, it may help for context to read what Scavina and Vangaurthe have been talking about, too… oh, you might as well go and re-read the whole chapter! What the heck, right?

By the way, I wanted to add that even though I don’t always respond as I should, I really and truly appreciate and enjoy all your comments! Thank you to all of you who take the time to say a few words, and thank you also to those who just stop by to read (I know how you feel– it’s rare for me to leave a comment on even my favourite webcomics). It helps keep me going. :-)
