Synopsis Edit

Maria and Gavin are having a conversation when Gavin notices Rain. The two comment on Rain's attractiveness.

After a beat, the two make a bet. The bet is that Maria can talk to Rain before Gavin (with the wager being $5). This is followed by a second bet that Gavin can convince Rain to go on a date with him (wager of $10).

This bet would later drive the plot of several strips, staring with 13:Risky Business.

Author's Note Edit

Ooh… can it be? Development and conflict (and characters) finally coming in? Oh, delight!

Oddly, despite that, I don't feel like I have a lot to say about this one. I guess I'll just let the page do the talking for itself.
