I love the pitiful expression on her face in frame 4.
It is so contrasted against how she looks in frame 6, where she is the strong one and Vic is the one who needs help.

And yes, I realize her hair changed between 5 and 6. Its because her hair tied back with the band is how she usually presents in school - that's the last thing she wants to be thinking about with another person present.

Sigh... everyone has problems. Maybe that is what will draw these two together.

@Cynn: I'm surprised at how quickly everyone is willing to forgive Vic for being a complete tool for so long. Everyone has their own crosses to bear, true - but isn't Vic one of Annie's crosses?

@GreenKrog: You are absolutely correct, except people do grow and change. It is so easy to get stuck in negativity and seeing the bad in people and you can always find the bad.

I am a hopeful romantic though and having the swim team captain interested in me would mean a lot, especially when it comes to validating who I am. And, given what Annie has been going through, that kind of positive attention would probably help her a lot.

Anyways, this is my reason for being so easy on Vic to forgive. If he really didn't care then I find it hard to see how he could be supportive and helpful like he has been; unless he is a sick bastard and has some kind of evil ploy he wants to play, which is a possibility I guess.

For my halfpenny's worth ( and without checking back ) I think Vic, like a lot of cis folk, thought that Annie was a wuss, but he began to change his mind when he saw how gritty she is in and out of the pool. I think his change of attitude is because he admires her strength, despite her tears, so maybe we're about to learn that Vic has a vulnerability that has been HIDDEN from us!!! After all, he's too macho, too perfect a team-captain: guys have to bluff to hide their fears.
And not to play made up spoilers - yes he does fancy her but is about to go into a proper tailspin because *I'm-no-homo* sorry to be cynical...

Actions speak louder than words. I'm still wary of him, but Vic's definitely maturing. I'm curious why Annie didnt go to Lexi's, though.

O/T, but the title reminds me of the Max Bygraves children's song "You're a pink toothbrush" - possibly one of the silliest love songs ever (deliberately so)...
