[Comic for Wednesday, August 13, 2014]


[[Still in his hotel room, Trudy and Nega-Nick (masquerading as "our" Nick) are arguing over his use - or perhaps over-use, from her perspective - of the "link". He's still seated on the bed, while she stands out of reach nearby, arms crossed coldly over her chest. He's preparing to answer Trudy's question about whether or not he still has feelings for her.]]
Nega-Nick: ... Yes. I've ALWAYS had feelings for you. Even in the early days, when the two of you were sparring over me, I struggled over which of you I hoped would win.

Nega-Nick: When we got married, I thought everything was locked up. I got the "right" girl, "my" Trudy was off achieving a new destiny... A nice, tidy, happy ending...

Nega-Nick: But there you are, and the same old questions keep cropping up in my head. Is this what I really wanted? Did I make the right choice? Is that the life that could have been...?

[[Trudy's expression softens as Nega-Nick continues.]]
Nega-Nick: [burying his face in his hands] I see you standing there, and all I can think of is missed opportunities. And the further Ki pushes me away, the harder it is to look at you. I made the wrong choice, and now I'm stuck with it...
