    Well, it was kind of implied during the crater hunt, but (for Balta), the timing could have been better. Mmmm, adding complications to problems!

    Eh, it wasn’t the hook-up I expected, but it works for me. I can see how this is going to complicate things nicely.

    Well that… escalated somehat?
    Somehow, Balta doesn’t seem to happy about this.
    I would guess it’s because Kirie has become a kind of political hot potato, judging by the several last pages.
    Poor Balta.

    I dunno how I feel about all this, but it’s certainly gripping.

    A quick question about the last page: Did Vendess pierce Balta’s ear just like that, while they were in the desert?

      Re piercing: That’s how it looks to me. Desperate times, circumvention of traditions, etc.

      For the earrings, that’s pretty much it. He was gone all day, so he probably met with Jutayo, too, but it was a pretty abrupt thing with no special ceremony. Just here: have a new rank.
