*whew* I haven’t done proper comics for some time now, haha.
This “flashback” I believe took place 6 years ago (obviously said in the strip), apparently a year before Rufina dropped out of class and began homeschooling due to “peer issues”. Basilico was a girly-tutu Kirlia back then. Ah, nostalgic memories.
If you’re curious of who Rufina is, see here.
