c1 p22 TW: Food

Transcript: Kalo's family is gathered 'round the dinner table, chomping down on some fuckin spaghetti.

"So Kal," his dad speaks up, "How'd you feel at the concert?"

Kalo blushes. He smiles as he thinks back on it. "It's the best we've done."

Kevin and Sable exchange a pleased look. "We could tell you were having fun."

Kalo responds, but the only thing that comes out of his mouth is static. He claps a hand over his mouth in surprise.

Everyone's eyes fall on him, and all is silent for a beat.

Orre opens her mouth, but she utters static as well.

End page.

I'm not sure I get it. Is it a burp, a swear or are they simultaneously speaking in tongues?

@Oly-RRR: I like the thought of an obscure burp language more than the actual secret reason behind this, holy shit.

@spiremint: I'm sure it will get more clear with the next page but with only two bubbles and a handful of surprised expressions one can't help wondering! :D

I'm guessing he's hearing things weirdly, kind of like white noise instead of actual voices. Must be really scary. :(

@spiremint: He's hearing every thing as white noise? Dude...His powers are my migraines! White noise is precisely how I described my scrambled thoughts and inability to process while in a migraine (triggered by noise). WTF, man.

There are people's actual teachers...and my migraines in this story...it's written by a psychic...*cue Twilight Zone theme*

@SoulRaider116: Freaky! Perhaps I am a psychic after all. At least I have relatable content to give, that's what matters.

Oh my. I wonder why they looked surprised... Can't just be something he's mishearing if it's affecting them too. And it's nice to hear Kevin speak at last!
