Art Expectations 374-5 Best Buds & Biddy

Joe and Pip

Biddy Revisited

Quick sketches! I’m rounding the bend. In the final stretch!

{Day 374 Page 400}  Pip tells Joe one day while out walking that he’s now strong enough to walk back on his own without leaning on Joe. Joe says to not overdo it but that he’ll also be happy for Pip to be fully recovered. Pip is annoyed by his response. So Pip walks a short distance and then pretends to be weak, needing Joe’s help again. He debates about telling Joe of his dire financial situation. But he knows Joe will try to help him with his meager savings. Pip decides that on Monday morning, he’ll talk to Joe, confessing everything. He tells Joe that he’ll never forget this time they’ve had together. He’s glad he fell ill for this to happen. To bring them back together.

{Day 375 Page 401}  That night, Sunday night, Joe asks Pip if he’s still feeling strong. Pip says yes. Then, “good-night!” In the morning Pip wakes refreshed and ready to set everything straight with Joe. He’ll do it before breakfast even. But he finds that Joe is gone. He left a short note. Basically stating that he wished to not intrude on Pip’s life. Pip will be better off without him. It’s signed “P.S. Ever the best of friends”. With the note is a receipt for Pip’s debt and the cost of the arrest. Joe had paid it. Pip decides there is nothing left to do but to follow Joe back home and explain everything to him there. And he wishes to speak with Biddy. He hopes she’ll forgive him and that maybe she still likes him. She liked him once, right? Hopefully she can again. I think Pip is in for a big surprise!
