In/Exhale Continues


The last couple weeks have been a whirlwind for me...

These final two parts of February 10 are intense, especially the second part.

One scene in particular may be difficult to read. It was very difficult to write, and even now I'm so nervous about posting it.

I hope you will find it to be what a lot of the past two seasons have been building toward, reveal-wise.

In a lot of ways this whole day was about discovery and revelations, and I hope you'll enjoy its conclusion.

Previously on In/Exhale: Kai and Jon journeyed to Omaha to visit Harbinger Clinic, the mental hospital Jon and Dr. Miller are hoping Kai will be comfortable checking into. The place is very fancy and Kai's cynicism makes him doubt the sincerity of it all.

This Week on In/Exhale: Kai and Jon's visit continues. Kai talks to some of the patients to get a better sense of Harbinger. Meanwhile, Dr. Miller's own visit to County House finally bears fruit as Ms. Evans reveals important details of Kai's past. After their visit, Jon gives Kai the chance to decompress after the stressful day by giving him some experiences he can't have back home. Additionally, Jon reveals some truths about his own past to Kai.

Next Time on In/Exhale: Kai and Jon deal with the fallout of the previous day, and Jon grows increasingly worried that he may have to forcibly commit his brother. Kai tries his best to push through his pain and depression, determined to make it Valentine's Day and to honor his commitment to go to dinner at Frankie's house and meet his adoptive parents.

February 10, 2001 - Part III | February 10, 2001 - Part IV

I want you to know that while I do have the rest of the season planned out, I haven't had much time to work on it lately. It's possible I may not have something to post for next week, especially with the holiday, as we're hosting Thanksgiving here and our guests won't leave until Sunday. However, I'm going to do my best. I was struggling with some of the early scenes and now that I've gotten those done the rest is already written, essentially, I just need to tweak it.

I want to extend a big thanks again to those of you who've stuck with me. I know this story is different and dark, but I'm grateful to those of you who see the value in it as well.

I hope you all have a safe and happy holiday!

I will be posting Love UnSeen later today. I'm actually still writing it, lol, but I will make sure you guys get something to read by the end of the day.


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!
