Grayling page 0831 Transcription

In the first panel, we see both the real Lem and his reflection in the mirror turns towards the bathroom door as someone, obviously Rae, scratches gently at the door.

In the second panel, Lem looks nervously down at the sink again, responding, "Yeah?"

We see the bathroom door as Rae speaks from the other side in the third panel. "Um, Lem, are you ok?"

Lem emerges from the bathroom in the fourth panel, staring at Rae with a towel partially covering his face. "Yea, I'm ok," he says, Rae staring at him intensely.

In the fifth panel, we finally see Rae's face closeup. He's trembling, his eyes wide and shiny as he fumbles his words. "That was... I mean...Do you...I.... D-do you wanna..."

Lem at first thinks Rae is nervous because he was crying, and in the sixth panel, he lowers the towel to show his now-calm face, his eye darting to the side self-consciously. "Ehm," Lem says. "I'm done crying. Sorry to freak you out."

In the seventh panel, we see them both in profile, Rae wringing his hands as Lem looks befuddled. "May & I were monitoring your mental state, like you asked us to," Rae says. "Nothing appeared to be wrong until it was too late. Then it was... It was like, a lot, all at once. Really fast..."

Lem realizes that witnessing what Cal did is what Rae's upset about, and it suddenly occurs to him that they should both get away from the situation as soon as possible. He stares at Rae. "Hey. Uh. Let's get out of this house for a bit," Lem says. "You wanna walk through the woods?"
