Also the curse wasn’t transferred when he touched Eveys shoulder (shirt). Only in the next panel did it transfer when he touched Eveys cheek
Or maybe that he was trying to lure her out of school so he could give it to her?And Amber now realizes how much she means to Evey. I suspect she never quite realized it until now.
What I really want to know is how she responds to those feelings, especially with Exvulnerum in the mix.
EDIT: I'm also extremely interested to see what kind of dynamic develops between Amber and Dzuna.
