I'm sorry, the transition between Wendy being sweaty in frame 2 and being dry in frame 3 is poor. My bad.
If you want something to really rip into me about, try to explain the conjugation of frame 3 'yours and my friendship'. I can almost guarantee I got it wrong.

So, Wendy isn't being a bitch here. She is just, like she said, not used to being first and best in everyone's mind. I'm sure most of us have been in a situation where our best friend starts dating, and suddenly their priority isn't YOU, but their new squeeze. It is a bit jarring. Totally makes sense, and you haven't actually lost anything, but it feels like a big middle finger at you. So Wendy isn't being a bitch at all, she is just trying to be a better friend when she isn't used to how this works.

Heh, now imagine how hard it is for Annie to deal with.

In situations like the text for frame 3, I usually opt for an entirely different phrasing.
"Our friendship" is ambiguous, "yours and my friendship" sounds weird, "yours and mine friendship" is obviously wrong, and "my and your friendship" sounds wrong as well.

"the friendship you and I have" is about the only way I can think of to accurately portray the thought without sounding wonky as all get-out.

@Nick: I think you nailed it on that last one. The possessive before the possessed doesn't seem to work on the flow of the sentence. 'Ours' would leave reader confused as to if this is the friendship between Annie and Wendy or Annie and Kora. I think I will change it when I get to work on Monday.

Wendy's hair makes me smile. It's so poofy in that ponytail.
