156. If you love someone, set them free
So, it looks like things have worked out for this couple. I honestly wasn’t sure what was going to happen.

The To Love at All comic is her favourite and when she saw what happened in the previous instalment, she was not happy. So a part of me did want to see them get back together, just so Mrs Zen Pencils would stop giving me the stink eye. Make gifts for people, right? This one’s for you, hun.
