This picture also comes with character updates:
Rubi: She is still in love with Sir Aaron, but is confused with Rocky.
Rocky: He is same old same old, trying to win Rubi's heart but is only able to get a stolen kiss once in a while.
Sir Aaron: We do not know if he has the same feelings over Rubi because there have been rumors going around that the only reason he stays with the alley rats instead of going to a 'cleaner more sophisticated society' is because he is always threatened by Rubi. He lacks interest in what the AR characters do and would rather spend time alone reading a book.
In this picture, the Alley rats go to a carnival and stand in line for the ferris wheel...
The crowd pushes forward as our heroes stand talking. From front to back stands Rubi, Aaron, Justin, Esteban, Crystal, Ambar and Rocky.
Justin: I CANT WAIT TILL THIS BORING RIDE IS OVER!! I want to go on SCREAAAAM!!
Esteban: YEAH! *highfives him* but the BEST ride is the Kamakazee, we should go there dude.
Justin: After SCREAAAAM!!! *jumps up to see over the crowd*
Aaron: *taps rubi's shoulder* is this ride safe? When was the last time they had a check up? Oh I dont have a good feeling about this *hugs himself to keep away from other people* It feels so dirty here
Rubi: Oh calm down Aaron, its just a ride.
Aaron: I'm not so comfortable with the hight..
Rubi: Dont tell me your afraid of heights...*looks up*
Rocky: uh..*reaches to the front and grabs Rubi's arm* Rubi can you come here for a second?

Rocky: *looks up* Aaron huh?

Rocky: he left..he's afraid of heights remember?
Rubi: ...yeah well who needs him *chuckles nervously and turns red* h-he'll apologize and we'll go out to dinner
Rocky: Sure he will, now come on, we're up *holds her hand and leads her to the ride*
Rubi: *sits down nervously*
Rocky: *sits closely next to her and stays quiet*
*the ride starts and slowly goes up and stops halfway*
Rocky: Rubi I want to say something
Rubi: *hides her red face* what rocky? I bet I know what it is *crosses her arms* but me and Aaron are together.

Rocky: I know what true love is and this is it *quickly grabs her hand and holds on* Dont do this to me, Aaron doesnt love you the way I do!

Ambar: shh *keeps listening*
Rocky: Please Rubi...*looks straight into her eyes waiting for an answer*
Rubi: *is still shocked* I uh- *looks at her trembling hand and pulls it away* Rocky.. *is out of words*
