Sometimes sorry is really the only thing we can say–or it’s a start, at least. 

( Note, Bells is using PR sign language in these and the following panels) The sign she’s using isn’t the typical ‘sorry’ but the one someone does to ask forgiveness to a greater being. And coming off from a guardian, I’m hoping it’s clear that she means to show she sees Acantha as an equal. The PRSL contributor (Inkydevotee who is an amazing artist too check her out here: ) explains it as “I truly apologise, and you deserve respect”. )
