A good friend of mine just turned 29, so I drew them one of their favorite characters. It has really been awhile since I last drew Nozomi, but she's still fun to draw.
Also, apologies for the delay with the short story. I'm working on the next 4 chapters as a batch, and will try to release them closer together so it's taking a longer time. Chapter 3 is already completed though, so hopefully the rest will come along soon enough.
Oh and that bongo cat has been going around a lot recently. I tried making it into a hat just smacking a schoolgirl in the face repeatedly.
