This was an extra page I had to throw together so that dialogue near the end of the chapter would make more sense. Noriko's mom (Shizue) has a weird profession;; I (hopefully) will get more in detail with it as time goes on.
I also apologize for this page being a day late--I really struggled with deciding to post filler or not. To be honest, the past two weeks have been unproductive. I blame lack of sleep (due to my sister), stress (due to my sister), inking pens, work, people I barely know wanting me to have a social life, and a sewing project/birthday present that's been years in the making to be finished. As you can see, had a lot on my plate >< I am hoping to finish a page sometime this week, or you may just get filler this next weekend.
