Is he talking about the test results from the doctor? If he’s only been with Frank for these last few months, why would he be worried? Unless…is he pregnant? ;-P
It’s possible to have an STI from a prior partner and spread it to a new/current partner. It can take time for some STIs to develop and be detectable. Some STIs are easily treatable, some are increasingly virulent and antibiotic resistant, and of course there’s good ol HIV which isn’t the death sentence it once was but is still pretty serious.
In addition to that, many STDs don’t result in symptoms at all. Often times people who engage in unprotected sex can end up as a carrier and not even know it.
yes, yes, yes, excellent point! This is ESPECIALLY true for people with vaginas/uteruses, btw, and undetected STIs can render a uterus haver infertile.
I can not imagine a more terrifying, nerve-wracking things than waiting for test results. Like, even if he’s 99% sure everything is fine he’s probably thinking something like, “IT’LL COME BACK POSITIVE FOR EVERYTHING AND I’M GOING TO DIE AND I’VE SOMEHOW TRANSMITTED IT ALL TO MY BEST FRIEND/BOYFRIEND.” Because who needs logic when you have blind panic. (Or… um maybe I’m projecting my own fears because, GOD this comic has me so nervous…)
no, I think everyone is like that.
OH so Frank knows about the tests. I want to know the back story. Was it just some guy (or girl) that Lee hooked up with cuz it sounds like Lee’s been in love with Frank for a long time.
He’s in a hairy situation.
I second the gold star for your puns~
TOO good!! 😛
Barely enough room their boys.. i’d get a queen.
Naah, it helps human contacts.
UGH BIG BOY PLEASE BE OKAY <3
Frank, maybe you should snuggle up behind Lee. He really needs some snuggling.
Is Lee considering the futton for privacy?
Or waiting for Lucky to say something comforting?
Does Frank know about Lee’s secret, and why he’s worried about the test results? Otherwise, Lee’s stressing out over STD’s when Frank thinks he’s Lee’s first…everything must be strange to Frank.
I like how Lee stole Frank’s pillow and gave his to the cat.
DOES NO ONE ELSE NOTICE THE GLANCE TOWARDS LUCKY?
I mean, that made me get all sorts of suspicious.
If all of this is a result of an accidental wish, I will kick the universe’s butt hardcore.
But awww, they are so presh. And Lee is so…hairy.
Maybe Lee is glancing, thinking “I’ll wish it ok if I have to”???
I’m surprised that folks are assuming they are STI tests. I mean, certainly possible, and the text sounds like it (at least with how people normally talk about “test results”) however… it’s clear they have been having sex for a while (at least according to the alt-text and the ‘creak creak creak’ of last page), so presumably they would continue to have sex after the tests regardless of the outcome (hopefully using barrier method!). So. it seems like the tests are something different.
I find myself wondering if Lee is concerned about mental illness (I mean, hearing talking cats?) Though there aren’t just plain “tests” for that. Perhaps something else?
