In Chapter 88, Anya and Damian clear the air on the handkerchief incident.
RECAP: The Chapter 61 SxF Handkerchief Incident Gets a Reference
Chapter 88 shows Damian assembling a mighty peace offering to Anya: an elegant set of tea cakes as a thank-you for resolving the handkerchief incident. If you don’t remember that event, it’s because it occurred in Chapter 61, released in 2022. The incident in question was when Donna Schlag, an infamous disciplinarian, attempted to give Damian a Tonitrus Bolt for not having a handkerchief, part of his uniform.
Anya selflessly offered her own, but in the process, wound up taking the Bolt instead, bringing her total up to 2. For anybody following SxF, the Tonitrus Bolt is a demerit, 8 of which means expulsion, so Damian was grateful, even if begrudgingly.
The chapter follows the hilarious hijinks that ensue when the pair try to meet up, complete with accidentally horrifying notes in class, along with Becky, Emile, and Ewen tailing them thinking they’re either confessing their feelings or fighting. But Henry, ever the gentleman, steps in, claiming to punish them, but instead sets up their peaceful teatime, achieving peace.
SPOILERS: What to Expect in SxF Chapter 89
With Loid still recovering from his injuries, and Fiona still bedridden, Chapter 88 didn’t see much on the spy action front. There was certainly plenty of excitement in the Mole Hunt Arc, but we’re also due for another story featuring Yor, especially considering the Cruise Adventure Arc is getting adapted for the anime’s second season.
However, as the chapter became digitally available, we can provide some spoilers for Chapter 89. It’s a Yuri chapter where he nurses his wounded pride after failing to catch Twilight. It dives into his past as a loner college student working himself sick to be able to provide for his sister. He certainly learns the wrong lessons in the process, but comes out on a journey of self-improvement, so it’s not all bad!
