Very interesting that Cara is the one jumping to Alis' defence. As hostile as their relationship is, I think Cara genuinely thinks Alis as a friend. Also interesting that Leio is now saying 'I don't want to hurt-' after throwing the meds off the side. Still interesting seeing Alis and Sean so calm.

No, no. Cara is jumping to the defense of her skull-themed backpack.

their gaze... maybe they have pity of him?
Greebles (Guest) edit delete reply
Ah, well if Alis isn't worried then there's no problem. Whew.

I am wondering, though, if this aggressive male behaviour is indicative of something else going on.

From the actions I might conclude he is homophobic, however have a feeling he is in deeper than he realizes. Also Cara should possibly consider men don't really like being put on exhibit for sexual prowess unless they are porn stars.
Guest (Guest) edit delete reply
I haven't gotten a homophobia vibe from him, though that could be true. They said the bearded groper seemed familiar, but I don't recall if that was expanded upon. He could be related to that guy, though his reaction to the groper's hand being broken makes that seem unlikely.

Alis' response is interesting, or rather the lack of response.
And the boy sure is acting oddly.
Looking forward to the reason for it.
Until then I'll just be "Wait, what ? WTF just happened?"

Ditto exactly what you said.

Same. I was worried about Alis' meds, but she doesn't seem to be too concerned.

Whatever the reason though, those actions are in no way justifiable.

The only thing I can think of is that the lad is a...hitman of some sort? Does not compute. :/

Leio is probably feeling pretty emasculated ATM (not nearly as strong as Sean, suffering droopy-dink, being used as a sexual toy, being around 3 Alpha females [even Alis is more Alpha than him, because she usually gets her way]), so he's throwing a temper tantrum as a display of his male-ness.

Don't forget the phone with all the naked pictures/videos of him went mysteriously missing.

As always View, it is impossible to see where your story is going until it gets there. It's brilliant the way your twists come about. Much like everyone else, I'm just going to enjoy the ride despite how confused I am.

Hey View, I don't suppose you do commissions, or have an email or some other way to get in contact with you?

Alis looks tired. Hope she isn't due for a patch change soon.

Its a hostage situation. Alis's mother is a very rich doctor.

/theory

/probably wrong.

/he was checking to see if anyone else had a cell phone - and then threw out Alis's meds to put extra oomph into the hostage situation.
WhiteAier (Guest) edit delete reply
It's a nice theory. But Leio didn't know Alis and Sean would be there. He comments that he thought it was going to just be him and Cara. Which would mean his target is possibly her, not Alis and Sean.
Greebles (Guest) edit delete reply
Pretty sure he knows Sean could toss him into low earth orbit, though.

Secretkeeper626 (Guest) edit delete reply
@RandomTroll I think you are right, to a point. I've seen this behavior before, but I didn't think it would be coming from him, regardless he doesn't want anyone off the boat, or anyone to know where they are. What's worse, is that the now tossed med patches are Alis's (correct me if I'm wrong) lifeline, which suggests he wants something quickly, but what that thing is, I don't know.
Jerith (Guest) edit delete reply
Dumped the patches so they can't walk home?
Secretkeeper626 (Guest) edit delete reply
Unless they have a car in the middle of the ocean, or someone knew where they were going and knew when they'd be back AND had a boat, yes.
WhiteAier (Guest) edit delete reply
Also View, not sure if it was intentional. But Sean's face in the last panel has no shadows on it. :)

If it's a ransom, he's going to discover a very unpleasant truth.

You really can't intimidate someone who is stronger, meaner, or crazier than you are in a small environment.

Alis covers two of those, and Sean covers one....

You have rather handily described how I survived my elementary school years.
Guest (Guest) edit delete reply
He's probably just trying to force them to take him back to shore, maybe? Still a dick move.

Very interesting turn, this has taken. I've been absent for quite a while... but it's good to be back. Fantastic stuff, as always View!
