F in chat. I don't have a lot to say about these really painful pages. I guess I'll add an artist comment now tho.

This narrative starts with a spiral, and we're in it.

This is part of why the rest of the chapter is 2x a week now. Bad day but faster.

And no no there isn't, especially when a moped is like a mini bike crotch rocket nightmare at normal sizes.

Good news: we have reached the low point. Up is the only way from here.

Going UP from here? My dear Lady, Maks is only in the GUTTER; there are still the sewer levels - both storm and effluent - he can get to ...enjoy...
1. He's considered a coward/traitor/weakling bu=y his own people;
2. He was on the "wrong" side of the war;
3. Nobody will hire him due to racism;
4. He was fired because of racism;
5. He is now homeless because he lived at his previous employment;
6. Aside from the moped, his posessions are -probably- the clothes on his back;
7. He can't afford FOOD, let alone shelter;
8. His most important posession (his moped) might now be a small pile of twisted metal, plastic, and rubber;
9. There's a good chance he will be injured because of this; and
10. IF that car/driver/etc belongs to Aisel, he's S.O.L. trying for insurance coverage, especially since he can't afford health care (regular or emergency).

He may just feel like he has nothing else to lose, so WHY NOT be rash and "storm the gates" looking for "compensation". Heck - Aisel just might hire him because he had the outright BALLS to do that... lol

Sigpig you are a gem. Please never change. This is the gutter for sure, but the sewers have another time and place. Not this day.

That's a good list of current events I'm so happy people notice/pay attention to the shit I write for this dude to deal with.

I will spoil 1 thing that this is in fact, the bottom. At least for this chapter.

As far as having nothing to lose and storming the gates. Well :) :) :)

Maks is a resilient kid. A very resilient kid.

I forgot this earlier. @Lirvilas.

This is the other option since pawning the moped didn't pan out.

Hopefully it just lasts 1 day. That would be good.

I bet in the end he'll also have to pay for the dent in the car...

Nah don't be so depressing. He'd have to have the ability to compensate for that right??


Good Lord you guys don't trust me with my own characters do you

Oh dear... every time I think it cannot get any worse.. ... poor poor Maks indeed.

Finally catching up, and must say, wow, this is a true page turner, can't wait to see where this goes :D
I guess Maks' and Aisel's path will cross again very soon ..?

This work will surprise you in the worst ways. Sounds like a clickbait title.

Thank you!! Welcome back to the newest page. I'm really glad to hear that it's been a page turner. Pacing is something I try really hard to keep tight.

And yes, they will :) after all, what fun is it if the delivery boy never meets the dragon?
