A most humorous and somewhat romantic exchange(?) in this scene! Very well constructed and realized! You really have shown your fantastic talents here, Molly! Bravo and many fine kudos!!!

Thank you, Rad. This story is becoming kind of special to me so I'm very glad you are enjoying it and the pictures I am using to illustrate it. =)

Aw, how cute to see Pixie so flustered by her crush! Love her smitten expression and the little flare she's doing with her right hand, which conveys how giddy and unbalanced she's feeling! Brooke does look a little worried about her friend, maybe not wanting her to get her heart broken?
I somehow hadn't fully noticed their little frilly waitress aprons until this shot, and they are hilarious! Basically useless for actual protection, but cute!
I see from the reflection that Roxie is still engaged in whatever deep conversation she was in when Lena and her brother first arrived. Is that Pauline inside the shop? She looks vaguely shocked by what she's seeing through the window, so maybe there's some jealousy happening there?!

I'm glad you are enjoying the picture and noticing so many of the tiny details. I have a special fondness for the kind of geek girl that Pix is and Brooke is used to her friend showing enthusiasm for things that borders on bad judgement. I imagine that Brooke and Pix go way back, probably to Middle school so Brooke has had plenty of time to see Pix get herself into one fix or another.
Heh. Yeah, the aprons were meant to be symbolic and cute but they won't be much help with a coffee spill. XD
The reflection in the window that I hoped would be notable was the man in black who is still watching. He'll be in the next picture.
Yes, that's Pauline sitting with Jesse and they're complaining to David about the service as Pauline can see that both of the waitresses are socializing at the door. =) She is kind of a mean girl in my mind that's jealous of Brooke's position as graduate assistant to Professor Van Humbeek and dislikes the Pix simply because the Pix is happily a friend of Brooke. I may explore that a bit in the future but I am mostly focused on the relationship between Pix and Lena. If you want a bit of a teaser, Grace the ghost will be showing up in the not to distant future if I don't lose my focus as I so often do. XD

My pleasure, Molly. I seriously need to get my butt busy on MY story - it's been far too long. I don't think I've ever gone this long between pages. Just been hit hard with this &^%$# depression and lots of other stuff as well. I think I'm making progress little by little...

Life often intervenes and diminishes time for art. Take care of yourself and life first, my dear!

Love the expression on Pixie's face and really like how you captured the feeling of trying to talk to someone you crushing on.
