[Comic for Monday, August 11, 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.]]
Trudy: OK, I'll admit it. I still have feelings for you. I've even admitted as such to Ki. But I also promised her I wouldn't pursue you, and I'm NOT letting you change the subject.

Nega-Nick: [furious, starting to rise to his feet] Wait, you TOLD Ki you still have feelings for me? Of all the... Now it all makes sense!
Trudy: [roaring] SIT DOWN!

Nega-Nick: [seated again] She's been cold lately... distant. Sure, she puts on the lovebird show for everyone in the office, but once we're alone we barely talk. She's completely shut me out!

Nega-Nick: [dejected, staring at his feet] THAT'S why she kept hounding me, asking me if I ever had feelings for you, if I STILL had them...
Trudy: [guarded] ... Do you...?

References: Trudy admits her feelings to the "real" Nick (although with her amnesia, she wouldn't remember this); Trudy admits her feelings for Nick to Ki: (1) (2)
