Oh wow, this sets off alarm bells for me! I will bet money that he’s having similar confidential conversations with Grey in order to undermine his confidence in Midori.
The conclusion to this conversation has me on the fence (again) now too. I want to trust Forrest, but after he said those things, I also can’t help but feel that he might be trying to turn Grey and Midori against eachother. This was definitely not what I was expecting, so good job on this one Michelle 🙂
It does me too. Like he wants her to leave Grey and come work for him. I have this terrible feeling that Forrest distrusts gen-mods, but keeps it quiet so he can use them for his own purposes.
I am honest, I still don’t know how to feel about him 😮
There is this part in me that tells me, he is playing a role here and in the end, turns out to be a really big a-hole who will betray them. But then there is this part that wants to trust him :/
Let’s wait and see.
On another note:
You are really getting amazing good with backdrops – seeing how you evolved over the past months you reached a quality in my eyes that can rival some of the big ones out there 🙂
I really like the 6th panel with the smoke/fog lighting. As others have mentioned, Forrest seems a bit (more?) sketchy now.
Forrest is very perceptive, and an expert in reading body language and personal interactions, but he has only seen Midori at her most capable. When Grey first met her, the most capable thing he saw her do was beat seeker-bots into junk with a piece of pipe. In almost every other way, she needed protection and guidance. She’s a fast learner (or perhaps her memory is starting to return), but Grey still feels protective–it’s why he befriended her in the first place. 🙂
Forrest is right–and wrong. 🙂
That was a weird turn for a conversation, to be honest. Feels like he wants to drive them apart so he can have Midori in his team while getting rid of Grey.
Hmmm. Well, I can post with a different email.
Hey! So, I’m not sure why, but I just figured out that my comments widget had marked your comment as spam. I’ve since told it otherwise, so hopefully the problem doesn’t persist. I’m not sure how that happened… anyhow, you should be able to post from your original email!
