This page was REALLY HARD TO DRAW.

I hope it's clear.

How did 2 kids build that?????????!!!!!

Well, A) Six years ago they weren't kid-kids, they're older than that. B) They didn't build it alone. They co-opted an existing structure and, with a dozen or so friends, munged it into this monster.

But... that's not really important to the story.

It looks a lot like an old mining building... but why the billboard? That must have an interesting, albeit irrelevant, backstory.

Him 6 years ago... Mary 11 or 12 and Jim 14 or 15, I'm guessing.

Ehhh, a bit older than that. Six years ago, Miwa was 12.

Logically, Mary might therefore have been 14 or 15, with Jim maybe 17 or 18.

Do you mean Jack or Jim? Because otherwise, Jack aged terribly lol

Good catch, I fixed it. :P

Well I would have believed it if you really forced me to! I mean, you not only saw but drew Jack's firm, supple, and shapely ass earlier in the story.

That’s what kind of weird about couples with a half decade or more age gap. Think about it Jim was graduating high school when Miwa was in 6th grade and Mary In 8th. I know a few kids in my grade at school who date the freshman coming up and that’s creepy but 6 years is pushing it. Never the less I lolled when Jim just yanked the bar and was all like “this aging rusted structure seems safe enough. Let’s go for it” all with a straight face. :D

There's definitely an age gap, and that's why Jim never bothered to think of either Mary or Miwa as anything but kids.

You'll LOVE the first few panels of the next page...
