In/Exhale Continues

These last few days of Season 2 have been really hard for me to write and to share. I'll admit that no matter how much the characters wanted to take me where we are (and where we still have to go before season's end), I resisted at first, because it reminded me, in some ways more than ever, how close to me Kai's saga really is, and why I'd kept it to myself for so long.

It's always darkest before the dawn, right?

Today we'll see the end of Thanksgiving day, with Kai and Jon struggling with the events of the afternoon. And David makes a decision.

November 23, 2000 - Part IV


Next week, I've decided to have a flashback of Kai's birthday, the first day he and Jon spend together once Kai ages out of County House. It was a request, and one I'd been considering anyway, so you have that little respite to look forward to before season's end.

Thank you all so much for your comments. They really do mean a lot to me. :)

Don't forget you can get Season One in ebook form on my blog.

And the Table of Contents has been updated, as always. :)

PS - And yes, Renee will make an appearance before the end of the season, I promise!!

    1. Aka - Thank you so much for your comments. This end of season has been difficult for me, and even right before I post it I hesitate. But I know that this is where the characters/story had to go, and I think if art doesn't make you at least a little uncomfortable, and if it doesn't make you (and your reader) think about themselves, then it isn't worth doing, right?

      I'm glad that my little story has helped you, though. And I'm glad that you're enjoying it even if it's sometimes difficult to read. (It is for me, too!)
