It's hard to get a silent panel to do exactly what I want. Inevitably the reader's eye will pass over it quickly, recognizing it as a "beat" to wait before the next bit of dialogue. But here - and credit is due to Valerie's coloring - I think it hits just right. For one panel, they can both see it: falling back into that old reality Park's grandma is preserving, where Eve is accepted into a family she likes, and Park manages to meet their expectations. Within this panel it really does seem like it could be easy. But Park's commitment to the idea is so brief he gets pulled away by a text, and Eve is quick (albeit unwilling) to follow.
