You guys called it, Lalli is trying to get in contact with Onni. And he is able to be loud when need be. (But he is not able to walk on water as speculated on yesterday's page. ;3)
Bank update: I got answers from both banks yesterday, yaaay! Right after almost ripping my hair out from anxiety. And a two week period for approval definitely doesn't seem too bad after hearing some of your experiences with banks. I always just worry too much... but now I can continue my home-finding-quest!
And it's so very kind of you guys to want me to take a short break, but really I don't need one at this point. Drawing the comic is my break from "real" life. There's only a few short weeks left of this chapter and to the next chapter break, then I can rebuild a buffer. :3
