The heartbreaking dilemma of a child: wanting to fly, but also starting to believe that being “normal” has it’s perks as well.

Robbie: “Our whole lives” *is seven years old* XD

Will Robbie be right, or will their friendship change? We’ll have to wait and see.

Next week I will post the LAST page of the prologue. I can’t believe it’s finally almost fully posted. The first hurdle of the comic is finally officially done next week! Yay!

↓ Transcript
Panel 1: They all look at Bern, who was still standing on the other side of his room. Max says: “...And we forced Bern to come with us.” Robbie says: “Sorry!” Ivory adds: “Maybe your parents are right. We should listen to you more.”
Panel 2: Bern is starting to look very uneasy at their words. He hugs his arm, looking at the symbol on his hands. Off screen his friends continue: “You did try to warn us.” Another adds: “Sometimes I forget that Bern will be our regent later.”
Panel 3: Bern makes a plea with his friends. “Guys, promise me one thing... Please, never look at me differently because my parents are regents... I am one of you, right?”
Panel 4: Robbie nods. Max says: “Yes, you are! I understand Bern.” Ivory gets it too: “Yeah, you’re right. You are our friend. Of course we won’t look at you differently.”
Panel 5: Bern paces the room. He walks back to where his balcony is, past all his toys. “It’s just...I don’t want everything to change. I’m just the same as always. I’m just a normal person. I don’t want people looking up to me...”
Panel 6: He looks scared. “...or lose my friends.” The friends in question are in the back, still sitting on his bed. They look shocked at this statement. Robbie especially.
Panel 7: Robbie jumps off the bed. “We’ve known each other for almost our whole lives! Our friendship will never change!”
