A minor, corrupting
Transcript Panel 1.
Ernst is in a heated conversation with Gertrude. For once, Gertrude is telling him no. Caroline enters, decked out in merchandise and eating food. There is another girl behind her.
Gertrude: I am NOT giving you a permit to airlift Trousersnake from their gig in Bovenscheveen! I'm already bending over backwards to support you making this festival happen because my daughter likes it!
Caroline: What's going on? Can I help?

Panel 2.
Gertrude turns to Caroline.
Gertrude: Hello sweetie. Are you having a good time?
Caroline: Oh yeah! Only I promised Amber a tiara but I ran out of money so if there's an odd job you all need me to do…

Panel 3.
Caroline bends sideways towards Ernst, who bends a little in her direction.
Caroline: … Or a problem you need me to fix…

Panel 4.
Gertrude gets angry at Caroline.
Gertrude: Caroline?
Caroline: Yes, mom?
Gertrude: HOW did you pay for all that swag?
Caroline: Err… Swag comes naturally to me? Like YOLO? Swag and Yolo, that's me. Yep, yep! LOL

Panel 5.
Gertrude: I can't believe you let Ernst pay you to influence me! I can already see the headlines! "*Island government rocked by corruption scandal!*"
Caroline: Mom, the island newspaper is one old guy's website!
Amber: His Basebook page, really.

Panel 6.
In the background, Gertrude and Caroline argue on.
Gertrude: I don't care! Even an old dog can smell blood!
Caroline: That's not a real saying!
Gertrude: It is now!
In the foreground, Ernst, Hafid and Eisso collect themselves.
Hafid: Moving on?
Ernst: Moving on.
Eisso: Right.

Another one that took forever to make. In the end, I got so far behind that I decided to do something different from normal backgrounds. Please welcome halftones to the comic. And Amber, too! She appeared once before but now she gets to say something.

Oh no! The biscuit wheels just fell off of Caroline's gravy train! At least she got lots of swag :D What's Ernst going to do now that he can't get any of his musical headliners?! I'm looking forward to finding out!
Great page!
