Panel 1: Rose, Kai, and Fathima are sitting on a couch in Rose's apartment. Kai has an arm around Fathima.

Fathima: Did Iz ever tell you about his sister Lei?

Rose: Yeah...he said she'd cut ties with you.

Panel 2:

Kai: That's not the whole story. Fourteen years ago, I was diagnosed with colon cancer.

Fathima: They caught it early, but it was pretty traumatic for the kids.

Panel 3:

Fathima: Lei was twenty. A month into the treatment, she announced she couldn't handle it and walked out. Iz was ten, and he didn't understand.

Panel 4:

Rose: To be fair, I wouldn't have either.

Kai: I was forty-one, and I super did not get it.

Alt-Text: Yes, I know Kai looks a lot younger than he is. He is one of those annoying people who looks twelve until he's twenty-five, twenty-five until he's forty, and about thirty until he's well into his sixties, at which point he turns overnight into a sweet old man. If Iz survives, he's going to be just the same.
