Writer’s Note: Are you getting as excited about this chapter as I am? Trust me, it’s getting better as we go forward. I’m still making some adjustments to the dialog and the characters so it’s taking a little longer than expected to get ahead in some of the plot development, but it’s still moving along! Stay tuned, because I’m also working on another challenge! Not sure when it will be ready for being challenged but I’m working on it! Chapter 7 will be ready on Monday! In the meantime, enjoy your Saturday read and brace yourself for the continuation of Chapter 6! Read on, my friends!
