Okay, so here's the deal.
I was at the point in the story where could have said: sod it, I'll give Chlollie their happy ending, and we can all go home with big smiles on our faces, or: throw in some angst and drag out the drama just a little bit more. Or a lot more.
For the first time, I can understand why TPTB love to stall, stall and stall some more: it gives them more time to weave a story. As long as its done right, it can be a brilliant masterpiece, and that is what I'm aiming for.
So I decided to throw in an angsty roadblock in the name of one Clark Kent. Please don't hate me. The good news is that not only do I still get to expand Siren
, I also now have to add another book to the series, so there'll be six stories instead of five. How's that for compensation?
So, without further ado, here's chapter 7 of Misdirection
