Finally kissing the bride.

As Azul noted, he’s previously only had any contact with Tala through a “phantasm”, so her shock here is due largely to actually being able to physically touch him for the first time ever.

This is sort of a common element to modern long-distance relationships in that you can get into a pretty committed and serious relationship with someone whilst staying potentially thousands of miles away. However, the human brain is geared towards the physical and the cerebral enjoyment of a long-distance relationship only fills some of the needs of romance, not usually all of them. Those unfulfilled needs tend to accumulate over time and the longer and deeper you get into the relationship the more you tend to want to fulfill them.

In Azul and Tala’s case, they’ve never once been able to share physical contact before this page. They’ve mimed holding hands, hugging, kissing, all manner of things, but there’s no sensation in any of them, no warmth or reaction. And yet, they’ve gotten so involved with one another emotionally and mentally that they got married. Some might call that extreme for two people in a long-distance relationship, but I’m of the continuing opinion that love does not care where you are or even when, it links people together regardless of their geography and if indulged it just gets stronger and stronger over time.

So, knowing all that, I then had to make this page, knowing that they’d both be involved in the battle and would, inevitably, meet up. And I’ll be honest, I teared up a little when it came to adding the dialogue. I spent a lot of time focusing on the kiss itself, largely because it was awkward to show with my usual positioning of characters (as I learned whilst attempting, it’s made even more difficult by the fact that the focus of most kissing scenes is not the mouths but the noses, which my characters lack entirely), and it’s still sort of awkward here and there but I think I managed to portray it pretty well.
