You're embarrassing meeeeeeee
For future reference, I finished this page on the same day Queen Elizabeth II died, and it felt... really weird! Really really weird.
As Daphne buries herself in Halea's arms, the high priestess closes her eyes and pats the back of her head. With Daphne not looking at her, she smiles wryly.
Halea: We sailed back as quickly as the goddess would allow.
She opens her eyes, half lidded.
Halea: It seems we had fair winds at our backs.
The elderly woman side-eyes Halea with a cunning smile. Behind her, the samoyeds look worried.
Older Woman: That little dinghy of yours got here a full week early. Those winds aren't just FAIR... They're DIVINE.
Daphne whirls around, tears still in her eyes. She admonishes the woman.
Daphne: Mother, what did I JUST say?!
Behind her, Halea stares down with her peacock eyes, cool and unfazed. She continues to smile.
Daphne: This is the absolute WORST time for your weird little suspicions! Hallie's own daughter is probably gone now too... Please give her the respect she deserves!
