1- If we remember well, Myces was forbidden from going to the little pond because Aster was afraid she'd see her reflection. Aster didn't think of the fact that a modern house like Pekka's ought to have a couple mirrors. So all those incidents happened for a completely useless reason!
2- The current recommendation is not to disinfect superficial wounds and only clean them. Pekka is old school and doesn't know that. He should know, though, that what he's about to do in panel 6 - putting alcohol on someone's wound without telling them - is a bad idea.
and Im betting he is about to be reminded on why its a bad idea!!
He still has a few seconds to remember it by himself!
Come on Pekka, you're smarter than that!
Wow, I love the fact that she's looking at herself in the mirror when she says that. That's hilarious! So either she doesn't have the ability to self-recognize, or she's simply not as concerned over her appearance as her mother thinks she is. Either way, awesome page!
Arum (Corbel's dad) did warn her mom that knowing her mother was ashamed of her would hurt her a lot more than knowing she was ugly... if she even thinks she's ugly.
