Now we know what kind of worries Lora has been talking about earlier:
She's busy job hunting!

Right now Lora is coming from a job interview at Chapel Enterprises International, one of the many large companies that are based in Autumn Bay.
(Over the course of this chapter, we've heard the name of a few of the others of them already, like MARSEC/Aegis or Takira.)

Also: Yes, I've taken a liking to put mermaids in suits! Why do you ask!?

Furthermore, there's yet another Quantum Cat-themed clock!
Seriously, is Emily collecting them!?
(Don't fall, Kitty Ariane!)

And song in the last panel is Downtown...

Thank you!
And yes, that's Bos! Well spotted! We'll see this background picture more clearly in the next page.

To add another song... "tumbling dice"!
And another one... "Don't fall down"...
(Although I wonder if Emily ever noticed the striking similarity between Ariane and Kitty...)

Emily: "Hmmm, she looks kinda familiar, like somebody I've met... Ooh, I know, she looks like... Josephine Drake!"

(I guess we should be grateful that Emily didn't conclude that Kitty looks like herself, just because of their similar hair color...)

Hopefully she wont say famous last words to Ariane...
"I met someone that looks quite similar to you. Her hair is shorter then yours, but she is way taller then you..."

Amongst my characters, at least Clarissa Calabrini wouldn't do any stupid comments about Ariane's height, since she's rather short herself.
(Especially noticeable here, where she standing next to Selene.)

Although Ariane is almot 5'3 tall, she looses some height if she takes off her heels. If Clarissia is even shorter, she might already have some sympathy from Ariane without doing anything for her yet.
