I had a hard time landing on Nina’s expressions because she’s fucking with Thomas, but also actually disappointed about missing out. I kind of just went with what felt okay, even though I wasn’t totally sold on what I did. She looked too angry in the last panel, then too sad, now, kind of sad enough, but maybe faking it? You can be genuinely angry but still joke because you know you’re wrong. I mean, the phrase “truth in jest” doesn’t exist for no reason. In any case I just decided on something because I had to & I was off my game all day anyway, so it wasn’t going to suddenly get better.
I mean, she’s sort of serious about the whole thing. If he had called he she would’ve raced down to see the events unfold.
