Page #1048: Taking Responsibility
That's right, it wasn't Yiska's flirting that was making him nervous (THAT only convinced him to linger for a bit!) but something ominously glowing in a box on the desk... and when he discovered he couldn't even enjoy that thanks to unintentional invasion of privacy, he took his leave in a hurry! I was wondering if anyone would point this out before we got to this page but I suppose other things were distracting from it? Youse are frequently insightful so I'm surprised nobody mentioned it!
Also, Mye totally ships it, so she doesn't mind bailing him out of this one if she can!
