Happy Thursday! :) Thank you for your patience, here's the double-pager I promised - I hope you guys enjoy the update~ ;)

The relevant pages, if you want to recall, are here for when the ring is first given to Nemi, and here for the conversation in the cell that Nemi is referring to here. Make of this as you will! :P

The next update will be on Monday as usual, I really hope to be back on the regular update times again but it's hard to say with work being like it is. But I'll try! >3<*)/

Thank you so much for reading, and have a great weekend! <3

So many feels for Nemi. She's just so dang adorable.

And Jinn shows he can have a heart at times for our little Kijini. :3

Haha, Nemi is always winning the cute vote! <3
Jinn, in general, contrary to popular belief, does have a heart XD

Poor Nemi... <3 *hugs and comforts her*

Awww... jinnie has something nice to say for a chance - well, at least for a while... =S *sighs*

*hugs and comforts Nemi a bit more*

Ugh... who is that? a character not seen for 20 pages (according to alt text)??? who is that???

*goes back 20 pages to check who this new character is...*

...Oh, that is Seia??? how come he is here all of a sudden? =O ...or did you mean Zion? =O

...nope, they both do not fit...

...ah, there he is... seems to be Cain (that is 25 pages ago...) ;)


Thank you for the comic, Rufi <3 *huggus*

Happy you like the double-pager! :D

That guy seems to be making his presence known all the more in his absence, bizarrely, how is he doing this?? XDDD

Aw...
But I wonder if the boost would have helped with the situation they were in.
Uh oh, Cain doesn't look like he's in any better shape than we saw him last.

rufiangel
To be frank, the boost would have only helped enough for Nemi to just dodge a tiny bit more before eventually getting nabbed anyway XD; but it still would have helped and given that much more of a fraction of a chance, which is why Jinn is flabbergasted :P

We'll see how Cain is next page, don't worry too much about him though... ;D

Jinn: "Here's a couple of seals I made, Kajini. This is for accuracy, and this is for stamina. and If I ever catch you NOT wearing ALL THREE of them, I'll take back every encouraging word I said. GOT IT???"

"Grumble Grumble Kajini Grumble"

rufiangel
D'awww, that'd be so sweet! Grudgingly sweet XD

As a side-note, Jinn has the ability to sealsmith but his theory is much, *much* stronger than his application. XD; In the Mike/Jinn duo, he really let Mike do all the actual sealsmithing while he took on the other parts of the merchant work (sourcing the best mines, figuring out the market trends on what seals would sell best, finding the best locations to sell at which times, negotiating with customers, etc.). This isn't something that will be addressed until we actually get to the part of the story we cover Michael and Jinn's backstories so I'll just note it here for now, well in advance ;)

D'aww.... Little bonding... Kinda... :'D

Aw, Cain isn't so cozy...
rufiangel 16th Aug 2017, 1:04 PM edit delete reply
rufiangel
It's a touch of bonding, I think it's fair to say ;D

And what do you mean, Cain is very snug in that cell XD lol

Did you really mean to have him say she's OVER estimating herself? OUCH Jinn is harsh even when trying to be motivating XD
Scia 12th Aug 2017, 6:41 AM edit delete reply
I wonder about that, too. Myself, I keep thinking it was supposed to say she's UNDER-estimating herself, but it got mixed up. I mean, he seems to pretty much immediately try to give her a confidence boost (depending on how you interpret the bit on her not being the fastest in the world). It really seems to me like "over-estimating" doesn't match with what he says.
DLKmusic 12th Aug 2017, 7:48 AM edit delete reply
DLKmusic
I actually disagree, Scia... Over-Estimating herself implies that she thinks she's the fastest on the planet, and clearly, she's not, but has the potential to be, if she's patient. I'm pretty sure that's what Jinn was saying to her

rufiangel
@DLK: That is correct, sir! Thanks for adding the clarification here on my behalf; I was worried for a second no one got it XD;;
rufiangel 16th Aug 2017, 1:05 PM edit delete reply
rufiangel
@Scia: DLK got it in one, actually; he was telling her (a bit forcibly) to humble herself. XD; I know, yowza!

rufiangel
@Proxy: Yep, he said she was over-estimating herself! Jinn is definitely harsh to her, ahahaha XD

No worries Nemi! All the Flash has is speed and he's top tier s***. Become one with speed.

rufiangel
What was it called again? The Speed Force? XD; The Flash is definitely top tier, quite a high bar to set before Nemi! lolol

Anyone else like Jinn's "oh crap" face in the 4th-to-last panel? X3

That's a pretty apt caption! XD

I like this moment between these two---has a little bit of everything! <3
I'm so sad that Mikey ended up forming a bit of a bond here with Nemi and....she gonna leave :')

Aw Cain.. I'm so worried about yoooooooooooou!

This is a wonderful page, Rufi!

<33 Thank you Serpy! I'm happy you enjoyed this update, since I deliberately extended the scene to include this exchange XD;

I can see you trying to pad the blow well in advance XDDD aww Serpy-kins <3 *hugs and whispers* good idea

I know I took my time on this, but the link-backs made me analyze Michael's actions around Nemi.

I guess I just wanna say that while Nemi is understandably confused about her feelings (no thanks to all them implications Michael so generously shows around Nemi, poor girl XD), I also think Michael has some confusions and reservations himself. But he wants her to be comfortable around him and Jinn, so this stuff he's doing is him trying to show Nemi how much he values her as her, and not some Kijini he's supposed to not get along with.

Even if it insinuates love relationship status because that ring dangit XD

Or maybe Jinn overblew the proportions of everything and needlessly complicated the NeMikey friendSHIP. That too XD

rufiangel
Your analysis is very heart-warming <3 XD thankyew dear for this, I'm so happy to see that depth can be read in their interactions <33

I think relationships in general are just complicated, sometimes -v- or maybe, like you said, others are the ones who complicate things fufufu
