    Confused Vocab Help

    I was hoping a more expirenced person could help me with this (I put spolier just in case):

    the manga is Kimi wa candy.


    Spoiler show


    Background: Mizokoshi, the main character, gets sick and finds out her crush is dating this girl when she get's back and is trying to figure out how it happend.

    Here the girl is talking about 流れ and I thought that meant a flow, or a current.

    I was kind of thinking that maybe the girl mixed up current (as in a flow) with current (time), but I was really unsure.

    Anyone have any ideas?

    流れ could be the flow of anything, time, conversation, mood, water, etc.

    But there's nothing in the picture that will pin down what she is talking about. Two bubbles look entirely unrelated to me. Someone is pointing to the two while saying the first bubble, and then the girl is having her own conversation in the second.

    Or maybe not. Can't tell.

    In slang, 流れ translates to "going with the flow."

    Example:
    [bubble 1]Wait... How'd it go down that like anyways?
    [bubble 2]Huh---? We just like, went with the flow, I guess?
