And the question is... now what?

The problem (good for plot I know!) is that Abby just can't make up stories to save her soul. She just can't dodge this without lying and she can't do that worth a darn.

I admit, I even spent some time thinking about how to get her out of this and failed. Hat is off to you!

Abby is a bad liar but she's smart. So I wouldn't count her totally out just yet.

I will say this. When I wrote this scene, I had no idea how Abby was going to react. I didn't actually expect Deena to figure it out, and when I wrote it this way, because it just felt right, I did not know if Abby was going to worm her way out or not. So I was in the dark until I wrote the next scene... and I was open to it coming out either way.

You never expect that one of your friends could be a superhero...

I agree with Haegan - Abby just doesn't know how to properly prevaricate. She just too darn decent to do that - Friends don't lie to friends.

The question is "now what". I am worried about a theme from modern comics - "heroes don't have friends. It's too dangerous."

And why does a superhero need to keep a phone handy?!

Abby's not going to lose her friends.

As for worming her way out of this... well, Abby may be more resourceful than you think. The next few pages will tell...

Hmm, not at all what expected.

I was wondering if she would try to verify it with Abby or catch her at it in some way that she couldn't deny it, but I was honestly expecting her to COVER for Abby to Jackson, not out her.

Not wrong, not a complaint, just surprised.

Well, Dee, Jay, and Abby are kind of a threesome, so it's unlikely Deena would hide it from Jackson. Just like she didn't hide from Abby that Jackson has a crush on LL back in issue 3.
