Next update will be the last one for this chapter with this scene ending one way or another. Emotions are all over the place, so it's anyone's guess as to where this will go.
Please note that there will be a hiatus after this chapter is over. Either a very short one or a very long one, but I'll get back to you with a definitive answer on that soon. If you hadn't heard, my SRS has been pushed back a few months and is now happening on July 26th. I originally planned to break here, but the next chapter is kinda short, so I might be able to squeeze it in before then. The last thing I want to do though is have a hiatus cut through the middle of a chapter again like my previous surgeries did. After all, there's a huge difference between a planned cliffhanger and being uncontrollably cut off (and I'd like to avoid the latter). Whether or not we do get another chapter between now and then, I will be working my butt off on Rain - Volume 4. And maybe - just maybe - I can actually get that out before everything goes down. We'll see. ^_^
But for now... let's see how things resolve here.

@LittleLynn84: I hope everything works out fine for you. I am hoping for at least a very good kiss between them to for now at least. And looking forward to getting volume 4 to. I still got 1,2,and 3 that is coming in the mail Wednesday hopefully. Can not wait to see them. :P
Make plans, girls. Look to the future.
Best of luck with the surgery and everything else.
If you can't finish the chapter before - don't worry.
@Fairportfan: I agree we will be here waiting. :P
First Jocelyn, congratulations on SRS!!! I'm so jealous! That's so exciting!!
Second, omg all the feels!!! As much as I want Rainily, Emily brings up a good point! And she has feelings for Rain too which just makes it even more complicated and sad!! Hugz for everyone!!!
This has been fun to read, and is one of the websites I check daily, even though I know you don't post daily.
Having said that, and as much as I would love to have more, and for what the advice of an internet stranger is worth.
Please, take care of you, then us. If you get the next chapter out, awesome. If doing so would stress you on top of everything else, well great things are worth waiting for, and self care is some of the most important.
In any case, you know you, and thanks for this.
KISS! KISS! KISS! KISS!
Good luck with the SRS Lynn! Hope everything will go ok!
And yeah, many feelings.. I feel bad for the girls. I just hope things work out for them.
@LittleLynn84: Good luck with your surgery! It's still 3 months from now, but I do hope everything goes well.
The reasoning makes sense.
rain is so pretty in the last panel!
First of all, good luck. And don't stress yourself out over squeezing in another chapter before your SRS. We'll still be here afterwards and we'll be waiting patiently ;)
Well, about Rainily... this is really difficult. Emily has some very good reasons for not going for a relationship right now. And we know that Rain has quite a share of doubts and insecurities herself. Once Emily reveals to her classmates that she is pregnant there will be a shitstorm, for sure. Even if Rain and Emily just keep up their friendship, Rain will get a good part of that, too. If they, on top of it, start going out with each other, it will be even worse for Rain and probably for Emily, too.
This said, there are some ways how this could resolve. For example, when Rain realizes that she will be harassed, too, just because she is friends with Emily, she might turn away from her because it puts her under to much mental stress. Or she will finally find the resolution to stand her ground, just let the idiots talk and maybe even try to convince Emily that, no matter what, she would never turn away from her so she wants to stand by her side, not just as a friend but as her girlfriend, no matter what everyone else might think or say.
I could come up with quite some more possible outcomes, but... just to tired right now... no more typing, no more trying to translate my thoughts into english -_____-
Shhhhh. Everyone, be quiet. Do you hear that? ...it's the sound of my heart breaking.
Awww sorry to hear about it, ironically I wasn't expecting my surgery until August but now I'm getting it on the 14th of April this Thursday.
I'm not disappointed. I'm happy with the way it's going.
It's a recognition that there are more important things in life than "romance". Like supporting a friend or family member, being there when they need you.
Emily needs someone (several someones, actually) to be there for her in the hard times to come with no expectation of anything but the satisfaction of helping someone who matters to you, whether you're in love with them or not, or even whether you like them or not. The way Emily was there for Rain. The way Fara has been there for Rain ever since Rain's mother died.
This is what "family" has always been supposed to mean. BTW, if you haven't bought volume 3, do so. Just sayin'....
Also BTW: I wonder if Jocelyn is going to show some of what it's really like to be responsible for a newborn baby. BTDT -- twice. Not something you forget....
I am very happy they are thinking things thru first rather then just jumping into it feet first not thinking.
