Kylie may have figured something out. I think he may be a bit offended that Rain’s not just admitting it…

Food for thought: Do you think Rain is just playing dumb to keep her secret safe, or is she oblivious to Kylie’s suggestion, situation, and practically everything else?

You know, I'm kind of glad that Rain is in a relationship with someone. Seems to help her mood a lot.

I....I'd think she's still processing what she just heard. She's on her way to figuring it out. :)

changed my mind, rain thinks Ky suspects her, and Ky does in fact suspect her. also subtly hinting at himself too. it all adds up, and heather has already suggested it to him. maybe his transceiver works better than he thought.

Serious-eyed Kylie is serious! T_T

Seriously, though, this page continues in the Rain-Kylie interactions. Naturally, Kylie is surprised to hear that Rain would be dating Rudy, given that he's supposed to be gay (and the awkward situation at the party). Rain counters by explaining... well, nothing, instead giving the "too long; can't explain" excuse. Kylie, it seems, is frustrated and disappointed that Rain won't share with him. We know he's attracted to Rain, but I think he also wants to be a close friend, at the very least. Perhaps it's Rain's refusal to share that prompts him to probe, and to share a bit of himself. "Like, if you had some kind of abnormal feelings about yourself that no one else seems to have..." This line indicates that Kylie strongly suspects that Rain is, in some important way, similar to him, that they both share certain feelings. And I think I have a good guess at exactly the feelings he's talking about. Rain's confused response may encourage him to back off, as he decides to leave in the last panel, like he feels he's overstepped his bounds. The most telling look, though, is Rain's face in the final panel. A simple widening of the mouth and shrinking of the pupil can be extremely expressive - it looks as if Rain understands just what Kylie is asking.

Will their conversation have resolution today, or will it have to wait? I'm on the edge of my seat for next page!

I feel like she's oblivious. XD

I think that she really doesn't know what he is talking about, but at the end she might have figured it out. I think that if Kylie tells Rain who he really is, then Rain will tell who she really is. Either way i think that they are about to find about each other.

either she has figured him out, or she think he has her figured out.
ky on the other hand... not sure... mabe trying to tell rain that he is female. to get it off his chest. like he said before, he feels bad for keeping a secret.

No Ky! Just spit it out you fool! *ahem*

In answer to your question, it's hard to judge. If we go by the fact that Rain has completly missed the point of some stuble flirts from Maria, so she's just feeling uneasy about his tone (or his expression given how he looked in the middle panels).
That said, her retort to Gavin from a few chapters ago shows that she's not completly blind or a ditz, so you could say that she's only just realised what Ky was trying to say now, or at the very least has put some of the pieces together.

Mmm... I really don't know...
gaoyuqing Featured By Owner Mar 30, 2012
Oblivious. and why would she tell Ky? She hardly knows him after all.
UltimateBakaNeko Featured By Owner Mar 30, 2012
Well, as paranoid as Rain is, she probably just plays dumb and hopes Ky is onto something else.
coffinstufferd Featured By Owner Mar 29, 2012
I've been that oblivious before. I don't think Rain gets it, but she's wondering... *heavy sigh*
chitttick1 Featured By Owner Mar 29, 2012
I think she didn't get it until maybe the last panel, then she may have realized what Kylie was talking about.
YNot1989 Featured By Owner Mar 29, 2012  Hobbyist Digital Artist
A little of both.
KingInYellowTatters Featured By Owner Mar 29, 2012
Yes... I know exactly what is going through Kylie's head...

"Clearly, Rudy has realized he's actually straight and of course fell in love with Rain... but Rain is actually a lesbian... So, Rudy is coming over to Rain's house and dressing up as a woman like he did on Halloween, so Rain won't feel weird when they make out... Yessir... Got it all figured out..."
Undertaker972 Featured By Owner Mar 29, 2012
i dont think she noticed before but shes starting to realize it now, especially with what Ky said
dragon8writer Featured By Owner Mar 29, 2012
I think she was mostly oblivious - but that last expression struck me as realization.
chihuahua0 Featured By Owner Mar 29, 2012  Student Writer
That expression tells me she's playing dumb.
Maka00 Featured By Owner Mar 29, 2012
I thinks she's really nervous that Ky might have found out.
