In/Exhale Continues - Conclusion of Thursday

You've made it to the final episode of the longest day of the series, lol! Things only get better from here.

Previously on In/Exhale: Kai chased his demons all day, finally finding some respite at Martin's house, where he hoped that some banter with the boy and some movies would help distract him from his suicidal thoughts for a few hours. To his surprise, Martin has invited his classmate Frankie, a boy with CP that Kai knew when they were at County House who always looked up to Kai. Now, Frankie is acting strangely, and Kai is forced to give dating tips to Martin, who hopes to ask his crush out soon.

This Week on In/Exhale: Kai finally gets to watch his movie, and normally he would go home but he's afraid of being alone, so half because Martin wants him to stay and half for his own reasons he stays longer than he would and has dinner with Martin and his mom. It's nice, but reminds Kai that he'll never have a mother. Martin finds out something shocking and hurtful after Kai leaves and pushes himself to a dangerous limit. Jon is also reaching his own limits, beginning to break down mentally as his anxiety claws away at him, and although Vicky urges him to seek help from Dr. Miller, he stubbornly refuses.

Next Week on In/Exhale: Kai tells Renee about his donor after having a horrifying nightmare. Jon consoles Inez. Renee and Kai play hooky, and then Kai experiences his first psych class with interpreters.

February 8, 2001 - Part V


I should be fine for next week, but just a warning. I've been very sick with an infection (like almost go-to-the-hospital sick) so I wasn't able to do the tweaking to the next episode I had hoped. I seem to be finally getting better (hoping I'm not jinxing myself) so I probably will be fine to work on it this week, but just in case, you know if I'm not. (That probably didn't make any sense, did it?)

OK, let me say it again: next week there MAY not be an episode, but I'm going to shoot for there to be one. I'll make a post anyway if there's no episode so you know, and maybe let you read something that's not part of the canon or that isn't finished to compensate... IDK. We'll see.

I will be posting the complete chapter of Feb 8 on my blog later this week, so if you prefer to read without interruptions, that'll be an option in a few days.

PS- Remember, if you've forgotten what Kai and his pals got up to in the first part of Season 3, you can read the "Previously On..." to refresh your memory. Or you can hit the updated Table of Contents to re-read any episode. Also keep in mind that I'm posting each complete chapter (day) on my blog once it's all posted here, so you can read them in their entirety if you prefer that format. I also accept comments (including anonymous ones) there if you prefer. Happy reading!

For The Love Of Not Walking Chapter 22

Hi FTLONW friends, time flies when you are having fun...well, not actually fun but even with work time went by so fast for me these past couple of days and here is another Thursday. I was able to work and edit on this chapter a little bit every day and hope it is ready to go. It happens to be a long chapter again and it is probably one of the most intense chapters so far. Kieran is in a lot of trouble and definitely needs his family and Erin now as he is going to make his decision. I give you this week's Chapter 22 of FTLONW. I appreciate the wonderful comments you made last week, it means so much to me. So, for this week let me know what you think, I sure hope you like the chapter. Thanks for your loyalty, time, and interest in FTLONW
XOXOXOX, Dani

In/Exhale Continues

Sorry this is so late! It's been a rough weekend and I was trying to see if I could manage the double-episode but it's not going to happen, sorry!! There's one more scene I'm adding and I'm not sure yet if it will be a part of next week's episode or the following week's.

This week's episode is actually part of some scenes I wrote very early in the process of writing Season 3. Kai's blooming relationship with Martin is one of those things that came about unexpectedly but that I really love, and I hope you will too as it continues to develop.

I also hope you'll enjoy seeing the return of a character who has made a small appearance in a couple episodes in the past, which you may want to re-read to refresh your memory (but aren't necessary to enjoy this episode at all): Flashback: May 19, 1994 and the fifth scene of Flashback: June 14-21 1996.

This character will make other appearances this season after this, too, and will play an important role in Kai's journey.

Previously on In/Exhale: Kai has been fighting through his depression and suicidal thoughts, not to mention his PTSD in an attempt to live his life despite them, but it's been a struggle. Art, sensing Kai's mood, takes Kai to visit the cemetery and tells Kai the truth about his three sons. All three served in Vietnam, two dying there and one taking his life shortly after due to PTSD. His death was particularly hard on both Art and his wife, and she died not long after. This story resonates with Kai's current struggles.

Despite everything Kai has been dealing with, he has been visiting Martin Gomez regularly. The boy is one of Jon's patients and is slowly dying of the same lung disease that nearly killed Kai before he thankfully got a lung transplant.

This week on In/Exhale: Kai and Art conclude their field trip with a trip to the diner, where Art encourages Kai to seek out help before giving up. Kai then goes to Martin's, looking forward to some down time with the kid, watching funny movies and joking around to keep the darkness at bay. He's shocked when someone from his past makes an unexpected appearance, and gives Martin some romantic advice.

Next week on In/Exhale: Kai's visit with Martin continues, and he ends up staying a lot longer than normal in a desperate attempt to stay ahead of his low mood and dark thoughts. After Kai leaves, Martin gets upset which pushes him to his physical limit and puts his life in jeopardy. Vicky is concerned that Jon's anxiety is getting worse and beginning to affect his ability to function, but he refuses to get help despite admitting that he's scared he can't control his worrying anymore. Kai goes to Renee's to spend the night, afraid of being alone.
