This week in Epic Fail: Tinuvielle speaks with the Matriarch at the Temple of Guan Yin. They discuss how Yoru is maturing.

Creator’s Commentary: And we’re back!
I think this page has the most frames and the longest dialogue of any so far! I had difficulty fitting all those speach-bubbles in.
Chi Ho Sung is a character who used to adventure with our heroes. In case you couldn’t work it out she is a cleric of Guan Yin; it was she who advised Tinuvielle to place Yoru in their care. I thought it prudent to mention her. She may turn up sometime.

EDIT: Uploaded new, fully shaded version of this page.

MATRIARCH: Ani Kaitei, fetch Yoru here would you?
CLERIC: Yes Matriarch.
MATRIARCH: Tinuvielle, you’re a difficult woman to get hold of. I sent many a messenger in search of you, all to no avail. Fortunately Chi Ho Sung told me where you could be contacted.
TINUVIELLE: Oh! Is she here?
MATRIARCH: No, she’s very proactive in her duties; she never stays at the Temple long.
TINUVIELLE: That’s a shame; I would have liked to see her again. We shared some interesting adventures. But, more importantly, how’s little Yoru?
MATRIARCH: Not so little.
TINUVIELLE: Aw, they grow up so fast.
MATRIARCH: Yes. Yes! That's it! Exactly! Growing up fast. Quite.
TINUVIELLE: Um, he is growing alright isn’t he? You didn’t send for me because he’s… deformed?
MATRIARCH: Oh Goddess, no! He’s in the least deformed. Not considering his, erm, heritage.
TINUVIELLE: Has he been ill?
MATRIARCH: Not once, which is remarkable in itself. Not the most remarkable thing however –
TINUVIELLE: Has he taken his first step?
MATRIARCH: Yes. Yes he has. Actually –
TINUVIELLE: Said his first word?
MATRIARCH: Not merely the one, in fact –
TINUVIELLE: Oh, I wish I could have been there!
MATRIARCH: Tinuvielle, before this conversation is ended he may have had his first kiss, smoked his first pipe and filed his first tax return!
