About time she confessed.
You can always trust a mermaid – to sell you out for a cigarette.
These are the creatures of folklore who have a habit of dragging sailors into the drink and drowning them. Not because the mermaids have any need to, but just for kicks.
Well, that’s some really bad case of being a liar.
It’s a good thing the mermaid’s not wearing pants, because surely they would be on fire.
The subject of fire makes me think…y’know, I’ve seen Jenny smoking cigarettes, but I can’t recall seeing her with matches or a lighter. Mermaid magic again?
Check the previous comic.
I’m getting blind as a bat. Should’a picked up on the gesture.
If she can magic them up, no reason she can’t magic up a lighter or matches, or more simply, just a lit cigarette. (Although I think we saw her magic up a pack at one point, so might not be the last one.)
Yes, in the previous strip it showed her pull a smoke from between her boobs and light it with magic.
Clearly not paying much attention, the Mermaid magic is in full action on the previous page.
“I never lied, I just didn’t tell the truth.”
Typical legal tactic, leave out certain points and you can make the truth sound like whatever you want.
in the previous page 2panel you can see the mermaid magic flame i think
I’d stay with Modest.
Fu fu fu, those two make a funny duo, I hope they’ll stay together for quite a long time ! ;-D
Or maybe Mermaid honesty is like Ned Q Sorceror’s Dentist-belief superpower. Everyone knows they’re honest (they’re not).
Modest: You… LIED about being honest!
Jenny: You figured it out! …How did you do that?! Nobody’s ever figured it out!
Modest: I bet you’re lying about that too!
Jenny: …yes. *sniff* 🙁
The reason she came to get Modest might not be the same reason she actually brought her back.
She may very well have come to get her for the prince, but her time spent with the group may have changed her mind about following through. She might actually believe bringing Modest back to be the better thing, but no longer wants to give her to the Prince, much like the Chainsaw Unicorn ultimately ended up betraying Modest’s Mother (Whom he loved) and ran off with the Medusalings.
And what I told you was true! …From a certain point of view.
Many of the truths we mermaids cling to depend greatly on our own point of view.
She reminds me of a number of teachers I had over the years.
Teachers never lie. Everyone knows that.
Unless you catch them in a lie then they will lie about that even if the whole class caught it.
If so, then they will lie about that and you spend the rest of the day into office for calling your teacher a liar.
You don’t win. You don’t break even. You spend the day in trouble for being honest. You get older and grow up with no trust of anyone in authority.
