Wow, just noticed the detail on her cheek it looks like her circuitry stands out when she blushes! That's adorable. :-)
Ha! That's really good, Anon. :-) Thanks for sharing the covered text, Satin!
SuspensionOfDisbelief, precisely the scene you're describing occurred in the last 8 pages of Vol 3. It's specifically referenced on page 20 of Vol 4 as one of the reasons the protagonist isn't putting up so much of a fight anymore.
(Also, while I'm commenting, bravo and thanks to the author for sharing this amazing work! :-) )
