Surprise! Gavinís mom is home after all! Who didnít see that coming!?

Also, Rain and Gavinís long night of inevitably awkward dialogue wastes no time in getting startedÖ ^_^

I can understand what Rain means, despite appearances there isn't that many differences between boys and girls clothes.

All Rain has on is a simple shirt, a leather choaker, and knee length skirt with some flats. The only thing she can't do is run. But other than that denim fabric really isn't that constraining to the legs and the flats really aren't that different from your everyday slip-ons. The only real difference is the design. Same with bras and such, they really aren't constraining as many people believe them to be. If anything they provide better support for the lower back and do help you to walk straighter. And though so many people aren't used to it that really isn't so much to cause you to walk like a robot like some people do when they were things that they wouldn't normally wear. But yeah, that is basically my fashion rant in a nutshell. But its good you brought up this point since so many people actually wonder what is the big deal with clothes on either side of the spectrum, in which the basic answer is, so many people probably just too much thought into it.

As for the actual plot, I can only question what Gavin's mom is crying over. but its a great way to continue us reading. The panel layout is nice inthat it has the setting, a good flow for the title "cumbersome", that being the three panels in the center. And a good set up for the next page. It is a nice addition to the chapter.

Why was Gavin's mom crying in the dark? Is she scared of the dark, too and couldn't find the light switch?

Well we have finally got back to Rain and Gavin, what a surprise thou Gavin's mom is there and i think that she is going to be happy she is crying after all, or maybe she is sad i guess we will see. It doesn't surprise me that Rain finds those clothes comfortable otherwise she wouldn't be wearing them. I really like how Rain is posing with the bag (or purse not really sure) in front of her it makes her look cute and innocent. And i also like how Gavin's mom calls Rain a girl, here's my question will she remember Ryan? After all mom's seem to have a knack for those kind of things.

Oh mai. XD Things just got juicy. Will they fess up or will Gavin never be trusted home alone ever again? Tune in next time to find out. X3 I foresee many possible outcomes of this most of which are very awkward.

Blueshadez Featured By Owner Jun 13, 2011
Any normal outcome would be awkward. If there were some extreme circumstances and whatnot everything would work out just fine but I have a feeling none of those circumstances are in play here so... Let the awkwardness begin. Poor Rain and Gavin.

Awwwwwkward.
I actually didn't even think of this happening; I figured the chapter would be mostly about Rain and Gavin rehashing their old relationship and forming a new one. However, I think this is a refreshing twist; it certainly creates more drama and tension! I can't wait to see where this leads.

First Point of Awkward: Gavin has just walked in with a girl in tow.
Second Point of Awkward: Gavin's mom appears to have been crying. In the dark.
Third Point of Awkward: Both Gavin and Rain are bearing witness to Gavin's mom's tear-stained cheeks.
Fourth Point of Awkward: Gavin's mom will likely assume that something is going on between Gavin and Rain.
Fifth Point of Awkward: Rain is Gavin's old friend from elementary school, so she technically already knows Gavin's mom.
Sixth Point of Awkward: Gavin's mom has no clue as to Rain's true identity.
Seventh Point of Awkward: Rain may naturally react to Gavin's mom's tears and say something that will sound very strange coming out of the mouth of a stranger, thereby potentially giving away her identity.
Eighth Point of Awkward: Before entering the house, Gavin was talking about girl's clothes.

Shall I go on? xD

"Girl clothes always seemed cumbersome to me." --Gavin

Theory: Gavin had cross-dressed at least once.
