I kind of fudged the art on this page, but I love the dialogue. After a couple upsets and moments of self-doubt, Ten’s finally getting back into his stride.
By this point, Tatith has figured out that his plan has backfired, but he doesn’t know just how much yet. For you see, in his failed attempt to break up Ten and Kiva, he really just gave Ten a hand full of aces. Not only has Ten learned he’s in good with most of the faculty, now Kiva owes him big time for not dumping her butt.
And Tattle, that smart little bastard, has figured it out too, and is just tickled pink over the whole situation. You’ll see why later 😉
