In pink Bold, that's what I felt as well, was making him hesitate to tie the dori, not shyness or that he was still a virgin like others were saying, but because of her hate and coldness, he thought it inappropriate to tie it because she would not welcome it...as she was rejecting him as her husband, now circumstances are changed, her feelings have change and he is more comfortable as a result to do for her.
The look on his face...uncomfortable, hesitated, bitter, constraint.
Everything's pushing him away from her.
Her pity, her regretfulness, her hatred, her coldness, her anonymity.
His repulsion towards her.
Thanks so much Nafisa! I'm glad you liked it! And yup, I never really thought the initial dori tying scene was due to his shyness. Rather the fact that they both literally repelled each other. Neither welcomed the other to come close. He stayed away from her because she was rejecting him. Glad you agree with me!
