In the first panel, both Lem and Cal are silent and staring off to the side while still facing each other, Lem standing over Cal and Cal sitting on a couch. We can see the house, still and quiet, behind them. There is another couch with a green nillit sitting on it.

In the second panel, Lem, looking a bit sweaty, says, "Cal..."

In the third panel, Lem continues speaking as Cal looks up at him miserably. Lem says, "Are you asking me for help? Because that's OK, you know? You're supposed to. Remember?"

In the fourth panel, Lem gestures with his wine glass, the wine sloshing out a little bit. He says, "I come over every weekend to have dinner with the family so you'll feel safe to talk to me."

In the fifth panel, Cal looks back down, still tired and miserable, as a nillit appears on the couch behind him. Cal says, "It's just...I'm so far behind. I don't know how I'm ever going to get it all done..."

Lem stares at Cal as he continues describing his problems in the sixth panel. Cal says, "All the times I've used my magic before, it was because I really wanted to. I have so much trouble figuring out how to do something I'm dreading, & there's so much of it."

Lem looks nervous but thoughtful in the seventh panel. He says, "So you're feeling overwhelmed," looking to the side. "I understand."

In the last and eighth panel, we see Lem from behind, still speaking to Cal as Cal holds his head in both hands. Lem says, "I'll just start coming over every day until we get it all worked out, all right? We can do it together."
