Kellen re-enters the scene for the first time in… well, a long time.

Awkward conversation is awkward.

So, as it turns out... Rain, much like T-Pain, is in love with a stripper. You know what this means? Rain: The Autotuned Edition!

Seriously, though, I love the array of facial expressions on this page! Cheery Fara, envious Kellen, "nyeh-face" Fara, shocked Kellen, lost-for-words Fara, unnecessarily-angry Kellen, and phone-aggravated Fara, all in sequence! I really like these Fara-Kellen pages; their conversations are always enlightening, and we get to watch poor Aunt Fara struggle to keep Rain's secret. Here, we learn that Fara had already shared news of her date with Kellen, and that Kellen is currently unhappily unattached. Fara is put in an awkward position by her boasting about "Ryan"'s new relationship, as she can't reveal the full truth; hence, the return of "Ruby". Which, in Kellen's part of the country, is a stripper name (I could think of better stripper names in my sleep, like "Cinnamon" or "Shimmer" or "Jewel"... okay, that last one was dangerously close to "Ruby"). Fara really does bear a big part of Rain's burden, in having to lie to family members to protect her niece's secret. I bet when Kellen learns the truth, she'll be more upset at Fara than at her "baby bro". But I don't think it's wrong of Fara to lie; she's doing it for someone else, and since it's Rain's secret, she should be able to choose when to come out about it. It goes to show, again, just how important Rain is to Fara.

I really like these phone dialogue pages! Shame, that this is probably going to be the only one of the chapter... but still, I look forward to seeing where this week goes.

The only Ruby in real life that I know is a fat latino with long, luscious hair. :giggle:

Ahh... this should be amusing.

Kellen finally re-enters and asks about Ryan, you know i just realized how much Rain looks like Kellen especially with her hair braided. I get the feeling that maybe Kellen might just show up unexpectedly, she'll find out eventually. Fara makes mention of Ryan's relationship, i don't think Ruby sounds like a stripper name, but it does sound like a girl that might be more uninhibited than most, of course its just a name. Poor Kellen she is the only person that doesn't have a relationship.

Why do I get the feeling that Kellen's going to be dropping in un-announced to check out her "baby bro" and "stripper girlfriend"??

... that is so judgmental. "What a stripper name! Is he dating a stripper?!" Like, wow lady. Even if it really was a chick named Ruby, she wouldn't have named herself, and name =/= occupation. Sheesh. I hate to think how she would've reacted to the truth.

This... This needs to be drawn, Rudy as a stripper just kind of hanging on Rain. I might try but I'm not very good at drawing people so my dreams might be crushed but still... it needs to be drawn by someone *determined*!

My story senses indicate that this is the first step toward producing a really huge pile-up.

There's a typo in the third panel - Aunt Fara should say "he's in a relationship himself", not "he's a relationship himself".

And awkward conversation is indeed awkward.

But, seriously, good catch. Thanks for pointing that out. :D
