Panel 1: Darrell walks down a sidewalk with his earbuds in, spinning a drumstick in one hand. The other drumstick is tucked in his back pocket. It’s still raining lightly. From in front of him someone calls out: “Oh, hey Wilkes!”
Panel 2: Taylor arrives in front of their house at the same time. He’s wearing the same green striped hoodie he wore previously, zipped up with the hood over his head. Over his shoulder is a brown bag with lettering on it that’s obscured by his arm, and in his hand is a black bag from GameStop. He’s carrying a clear plastic cup in his other hand, and says excitedly: “Did you know there’s a bookstore here that takes up an entire city block? A whole block! You could practically live there!”
Darrell, removing his earbuds: “What’re you drinking?”
Panel 3: Taylor holds up the cup with a pleased expression. Whatever’s in it is light brown and has black balls floating at the bottom. “This is called bubble tea, and it is delicious.”
Panel 4: Darrell: “What’s that in it?”
Taylor: “Balls of tapioca.”
Darrell: “Pretty sure we can’t eat that.”
Taylor: “Oh it’s fine, I haven’t been chewing them. I’m just swallowing them whole.”
Panel 5: Darrell looks at him like he’s just the biggest idiot as an unhappy grumble comes from Taylor’s stomach, and his face twists with sudden nausea.
Panel 6: Taylor dives out of view to throw up as Darrell admonishes him: “That still counts as eating them!”
