Chapter 5 is now done, and I've sent it off on the first stop of the editing process. Already started work on Chapter 6.

In chapter 4, Rob mentions Thunderbug showing up with a certifcate for going to your first Lightning Game. It's an Upsale Item, that you can, at the game. Here is a Tweet showing one. (Notice Thunderbug has a Playoff beard!)

Chapter 5 Preview:

Quote

 

It was late at night, or early in the morning, depending on your point of view. It was 3:30 am, and the house was still. The light from the bathroom was on, the door partially closed, and bathed Rob’s bedroom in a sliver of light and shadow. There was enough shadowy darkness to sleep by, and enough light to keep the demons at bay. Or so Rob hoped. It was a fitful sleep he was in, and a nightmare had gripped him. He tossed and turned, and called out in his sleep.

 

The door opened, and Adam ran in. He was breathing heavy; panting with worry. He sat at the edge of the bed, grabbed Rob’s shoulders, and shook him. “Rob… WAKE UP! Come on, wake up, son! WAKE UP, ROB!”

 

Rob awoke with a start and thrashed around incoherently. In the brief melee, Rob hit Adam in the jaw with his fist. “Settle down son! Calm down… easy now.”

 

Rob panted, “Dad… I… I’m… sorry…”

 

“Shhhh… it’s alright son… relax… deep breaths… yes, like that… a couple more.”

 

Rob did as instructed, rolled away from Adam.

 

“Would you like to talk about it?” Adam rubbed his son’s exposed back, as he sat on the edge of the bed. “Must have been a really bad dream. I was in my room when I heard you across the house.”

 

“I… I… was dreaming of Mom, you, and foster care. How she didn’t tell me she was sick, until right before she spiraled downward. You knew she died of ovarian cancer? Doctors said that it was stage four when they found it. That there wasn’t anything they could do… it was too late. Then my Granny and Gramps didn’t want me, and my Aunt said I should be sterilized and forced into a re-education camp…” Rob’s silent tears left lines that shone in the sliver of light from the bathroom.

 

“Then the beating at the group home… it hurt, so much… worse than when the rebar pinned me in the car. And… and… I came here, but they took me away from you…” He paused as he sniffled. “I don’t know how… but I ended up with a handgun… and I kept saying… ‘It’ll be fine soon, just pull the trigger’… I had the gun pressed against the side of my head… I don’t know where that is coming from.”

 

Adam sat and continued rubbing his son’s back. He was silent as Rob spoke. Holy shit… that was one Hell of a night terror. He’s having thoughts of suicide, and … damn… we really need to get to that shrink today. “Son, I’m here for you. I can understand the pain you’re in. If you think you can wait until morning, when we go see the therapist, we’ll wait. Or if you want to talk to someone now, the hospital has emergency psychologists who man the crisis line of Tampa Bay. They may recommend waiting till later, or they may recommend I take you to a crisis center. Either way, know I love you, and I’ll do whatever it takes to help you.”

I'm off to be an adult the rest of the afternoon, but had to stop by and look at comments. I'll respond to them, when I get home.

You know what's fun. When your two editors. @Kitt and @Mikiesboy both return their edited versions of the doc to you, and each have highlighted the part of the Sauceless Pizza, and said "Yummy." Also, they both mentioned that chapter 5 would get some strong reactions. They were both right! lol

Check the gallery, and I posted their pic and the website. They're a bit pricey but really good.

Story Update for fans of My Son. Chapter 6 as previously mentioned is now in the editing process. I've been working on Chapter 7 for the past couple of days, looking at all the loose ends that I need to tie up. Surprisingly, not that many. Chapter 6 is titled "Friends in Low Places," and Chapter 7 is called "Retribution." You may have noticed that chapter titles were a theme for the tone of the chapter itself.

 

Well, when Chapter 7 is published, it will be the end of the first installment. But it will not be the end for the characters themselves. I had only planned to do one chapter, but instead, I've created a family and a storyline I would like to see more of. I'm also planning to combined a couple of other stories into the My Son world. One that is currently published here on GA, and another one that I had sitting on a shelf. Though with that one, I'm going to need to strip out the SciFi elements.

 

Thanks to everyone that has read the story, and for the suggestions. They will be used in Book 2.

As a surprise to the fans on My Son, and because it was made this month's CSR feature, I'm writing a 1 chapter short for the Tampa Chronicles. It will introduce a new character.
