Chapter 8 page 13

The robot’s thoughts cascade down a white page.
Mx. Zhou did not come the next day.
Nor the day after that.
Nor the day after that.
Nor ever again.
No one else ever read to me
so I did not know the ending of the story.
Nor did I know the beginning.
But more important than that,
I did not know what happened to Mx. Zhou.

Author’s notes: On one hand, this looks like the easiest comic page I’ve ever put together. On the other hand, I struggled a lot with how to do it. But in the end, I felt this worked best. To make up for the lack of visuals, you get a facial expressions meme with the Prince! It goes with the Emmie and Morio ones I did a few years back.
