I foresee Cammi in action, riding this guy down and giving him the boot.

Sandra, that distraction will be over quicker than you can say "Cammi opens a can of whoop-ass." :D

well, at least the possibly stolen item is out of their possession

Good thing that timely bandit came to 'save' the day, if Sandra's set something on fire she wouldn't've distracted anyone. Maybe it'd score a a gig on a tv ad, tho. ♪

Jokes aside, welp, there goes my theory from the other thread that Ingrid's in the police or something. Curiously, both Aaina and Cammi seem to be !'d by the act, so I wonder if they'll double team that mugger.

Aina seems ready to jump in too.

Well, Sandra, I'm not 100% clear on why you did this, but I would hazard a guess that ATM you have really low self-esteem and the idea of Cammi not being attracted to you more than anyone else is too much to bear right now. Because we really needed this subplot for whatever reason, but never mind.

This all seems a little too convenient. I have to wonder if this thief isn't supposed to be the middleman who picks up whatever Aaina steals. If she is indeed a cat burglar.

That seems like over-thinking things by this comic's standard. It's fun, but it tends to the straightforward. Anyhow, I'd normally expect to see Cammi going into all-out-of-gum mode at this point, but somehow I suspect that we're about to see the Aaina "mystery" enhanced a bit as she demonstrates that the parkour line wasn't an exaggeration.

How did he grab the necklace anyway? It's hanging around Sandra's neck in the first 2 panels. Did he pull it over her head? Did he unclasp it at the back really quickly? Did he simply break it while keeping his hand on the break? Any one of those methods would have given Sandra more reaction time than is shown. Magic teleporting necklace?

those clasps aren't exactly strong. and on thin chains. you can snap them easily

so stories of soneone getting thiers caught and being strangled or decapatated are false.

It's nice of Ingrid to scream on Sandra's behalf. :-?

So is this place just crawling with thieves? Assuming Aaina is one too that is.

If Aaina is a cool cat burglar, I’m sure that she’d be most annoyed to be associated with some mere street purse-snatcher. And while there’s some randomness involved here, I’m sure that there’s a fair chance of passing some not-nice punk on any city street — and the sight of that very fancy necklace might well provoke a low-rent opportunist to essay a quick snatch and run.
