The very last frame made me laugh out loud.
Nicholas is always a good character to turn to for comic relief! :P
Awww. Hugs for Nicholas!
Boy will accept all the hugs he can get! ;)
Another one: do I laugh or cry or both?!
LOL, both are suitable reactions, so do whatever feels best! ;)
Poor Nicholas. He's doing his best to keep it together!
Heaven forbid he should ever show anything but optimism to the world! XD
