Hey, everyone. Sorry this episode is up a little later than usual. I actually decided to attempt NaNoWriMo this year despite my headache as a challenge to myself, and I'm attempting to write a blind character, which I've never done before. So far so good, and I promise I'll let you read some of it once I have more written.
Previously on In/Exhale: Kai's long Friday took its toll on him to the point at which he found himself cutting and even contemplating suicide, but he determined to survive, as always, and went to the ASL class in which he had a blast with the kids, including Steve's cousin. Renee, meanwhile, is feeling the pain of the distance Kai's put between them, partially because of his hearing loss and the language barrier. She confessed all of Kai's secret to her roommate and best friend, and asked David for reassurance about their relationship. David is convinced that despite Kai's reluctance to put it into words, he loves Renee, and love can conquer all. Renee isn't so convinced.
This Week on In/Exhale: The long Friday finally nears its end. The class is over and Renee finds herself led on an unexpected tour of the school, although Kai's good mood doesn't last long, partially because of a revelation that may potentially change the fabric of the Jonesville community. But when David suggests they all go out, Kai doesn't say no, although the venue Megan innocently choses throws Kai for a loop. Ultimately, Renee confronts Kai on his behavior, determined that communication is the only way they'll survive, but things don't go exactly as she planned.
Next Week on In/Exhale: Kai's makeup session with Dr. Miller forces him to confront some of the things he's been reluctant to so far, and despite feeling lost, she helps guide him onto the right path.
Thanks again as always for those of you who've left me such great feedback. It really is a motivation for me through each long week. I still have plenty more in store for Kai, so keep reading! :)
