Comic 23 - The talky bit

The talky bit

Panel 1:
A little later. Frits Zuniga is sitting on the couch in the dressing room, with a shirt on. Aideen and Tess are both wearing their jackets. Aideen leans over the side of the couch, while Tess stands back a little more. Frits is petting the tiny Shadow Creature.
Frits: When it's like this, it's not so bad… cute, even.

Panel 2:
Close-up of Frits's face, with Aideen's face still in frame. Frits is pinching the bridge of his nose.
Frits: I still feel like shit, though. John's right, I need rehab.
Aideen: Yeah, about that…

Panel 3:
Aideen grabs her phone. To underscore what she's saying, her other hand holds up two fingers (for 'both'). Tess is surprised.
Aideen: I've heard of a place that might be right for yer. They do /both/ rehab and supernatural possession.
Tess: Wha? You're pulling my leg, right?

Panel 4:
Large word balloons, so only Aideen's face is visible, as she browses her phone with her tongue sticking out of her mouth.
Aideen: It's run by this old ex-stoner who used to go vanlifin' across America with his friends, hunting for ghosts. Most of the ghosts were fake, but… Hmmm… nothing online.

Panel 5:
Aideen is fed up with searching on her phone and looks straight at Frits. With one thumb, she points at herself.
Aideen: Arright, tell you what. Go see Marcus at the Bleedin' Rose.
Frits: That place? OK.
Aideen: Tell him Aideen sent yer.


Panel 6:
Aideen folds her hands together and looks away from Frits, avoiding eye contact but looking cheerful otherwise.
Aideen: He'll want payin' in the currency of his choice. If you can't come to an agreement…

Panel 7:
Aideen looks unexpectedly gleeful and pleased with herself - closed eyes, biting her lip.
Aideen: …Tell him again Aideen sent yer.

ReinderDijkhuis This was supposed to be a simple, talky page but it took forever because I was sick for over a week. Doing better, but this page is still a bit rough. Better that than having more delays. I'm so close to the end of the story I can smell it.
