“This is a very focused chapter. About 85% of it revolves pretty directly around Rain and/or Gavin.”
You know, except this first part that starts with Maria and Rudy. You won’t be seeing a lot of them this chapter, so I thought it’d be fun to at least let them open it up.
In the sixth panel, Maria speaks in italics (much like how Rain does just about all the time). Since the italics are meant to depict “not their natural voice”, it really just means Maria’s talking kinda weird here. I imagine an exaggerated “wannabe Shakespearian” kind of voice… if that makes any sense at all.
Rain, all characters and all other aspects of the story are copyright material belonging to me.
