You know, this is probably the most “action” to appear in this comic to date. ^_^
For all of her teasing, there’s probably nobody who cares more about Rain than Aunt Fara. You really kinda can’t blame her for getting upset anyway. It’s frustrating to hear someone speak ill of or make accusations toward someone you care about. It’s even more frustrating when their remarks are completely wrong and baseless. And then it’s downright infuriating when you can’t even tell them why they’re wrong in the effort of keeping a secret. Metaphorically speaking, Mrs. Parker was walking blindly into a lion’s den and stepping on every tail along the way; she didn’t know it, but she kinda had it coming.
And don’t worry, Mrs. Parker will be fine. It’s just a rolled-up, poster-size piece of paper (Fara’s student’s homework). Aunt Fara wasn’t trying to hurt her, after all… just shut her up.
As a side note, it was entirely unintentional, but the pairing of these two characters reminds me vaguely of Yukari and Nyamo from Azumanga Daioh (possibly due to the dramatic poster slap). Mrs. Parker wasn’t originally meant to be that important of a character, but I think I’d like to explore more of this dynamic in the future. ^_^
