So, since it turns out I have an ASL exam on Thursday, and last week's episode was late and intense, I'm posting a little early this week.
This week's episode is a departure in format from previous episodes: it's in first-person, from Kai's POV--an excerpt from his journal. I thought this would be a nice way to bridge the month gap between last week's episode and the season finale, filling everyone in on what's been going on in Kai's life in the interim.
You'll also get to see a little more of Kai's personality and sense of humor here (which will come out a lot more in Season Two, btw). I've included a link to me reading the episode, if that's something that interests you (requires Flash).
Thank you so much for your comments. I really appreciate them. Next week is the season finale (YAY!!), which is over 10K words, so I'll divide it into two parts. I'll either post them both together, or post one on Tuesday and the other on Thursday--whatever I decide, I won't make you wait an entire week for it!
