yay first comment this time mwahahahah back off from my Dedaland *puts little flag* yayyyyy
Ok, now the serious comment XD.
More colour pages 8D, moar testing, and the fatal question and option once again. Choose Talia, choose! I can see how she might be brought to tears again... he'd let her choose for real, even now. Even if she rejected him.
And that's why she can't reject him, isn't it? Too perfect of a Balthasar...
Visuals-wise, I'm sort of grinning at how both their poses and roles seem to have switched here compared to earlier in the evening :D http://thepiratebalthasar.smackjeeves.com/comics/1053284/chapter-9-page-06/ .
She's acting a little cold now, even for hearing both halves of the whole truth--that he originally married her as a ploy, to successfully keep her until the ransom or whatever it was, but now he adores her for real... I suppose this is another test... how will this turn out?
And the matter of choosing has an even deeper significance than it had at the beginning...
I agree with elianthos, MORE COLOUR PAGES! lol, but I am just happy with your frequent updating. What shall she choose? Maybe she'll leave for a while...? But I doubt it... Kane has a certain magnetism. Then again... Either way I love this story... In fact, now that I reacall . . . I am fairly sure that last night I was dreaming about pirates... inspired by this comic... :D YAY~
