“Talking about your feelings is important”, Part 2.
Panel 1: A park. Aleph leans back on the bench, smiling in relief. She says “Composer, what a relief! I was going to tell you earlier but I was afraid to hurt your feelings…”
Panel 2: Aleph looks down and says “I just…I need to figure myself out before I dive into this stuff, you know? Like, gender-wise…”
Panel 3: Rho, resting his hands on his knees, turns to Aleph and says “Wait, do you mean–uh–how should I—”
Panel 4: Aleph looks away, smiling nervously, and says “Uhm…’they’ is fine…”
Panel 5: Rho (off panel) says “Okay!”. Aleph’s still looking away, now with a little smile on their face.
