  1. We are nearing the end of Rez and Kin’s story. This chapter is a modified version of the ‘dark night’ where the characters experience what life is like without one another. I kept it brief. Like, *maybe* half-an-hour brief. In my defense, Rez thought a ten-hour courtship was ‘like, forever, right?’ So, let’s all just go with it…

    Okay. Moving on.

    Although this scene resolved some of their problems (mostly Rez’s uncertainty), there are still lingering issues (namely Kin’s title). That means that the next chapter will be… The Climax!

    And, believe it or not, I have options regarding how I can tie this all up into a neat bow. I’m 99.9% certain I’ll write Option A, but Options B and C are really intriguing. When this is all over, I’ll be sure to address these options in a blog post, and we can all marvel (or shake our heads) over which option appears in the story.

    So, until then, thank you so much for reading!❤️


  2. Loved it!! Just caught up on it all! I love that he feels the need to tie her up, like she is going slip away from him. Or is it that he cannot handle her touching him, like it would be too overwhelming? Is it a mating ritual of his species? It’s very intriguing to me because they seem to live in a matriarchal society. I like the twist and I can’t wait for the climax I have other questions but can save it for the end when you host a Q&A on your blog. Well done!!

    1. Thank you so much, Jennifer! And yes, Kin ties her up for both those reasons–to restrain himself and to keep her close. It is not a mating ritual, but just another way that Kin, despite his title, is not the ideal Akupara. You have some awesome insight into the story! I am so glad that you’re enjoying it!
