Before you get on me about changing scenes, consider that even if the focus had remained on Kellen herself, Vincent's questions would still be unanswered. I don't know if that makes it easier to swallow or not, but it's the truth. There were no plans to have her answer just yet. It wouldn't make sense if she did. I promise we will learn more about this soon, and it won't be as drawn out as some other developments, but we're just not ready to talk about this in full yet. More setup is needed to make this work; trust me on this one.

So let's focus on the flashback we've never seen here. There was a time skip of a couple weeks in the last chapter, so we can probably safely assume it happens sometime in there. But more importantly, this is the first time we're seeing Rain talk about Kellen since the falling out. As I said, it's only been a couple weeks in canon since Rain visited her sister, and she - needless to say - hasn't forgiven her. But instead of getting angry and yelling "how dare you utter her name in my presence" or anything like that, Rain offers a more cold, passive-aggressive reply. While it's not at all surprising that she IS mad, the "way" she's mad is taking even Fara off guard.

What about you? Is this surprising? Did you expect something more volatile, or is seething about what you imagined? With what we see here, do you think Rain will keep her word and not speak to Kellen again? Do you think it will matter to her if Kellen reforms, or is it too late? And if it doesn't matter either way, is it worth Vincent's time to keep trying to reach Kellen?

Rain, all characters and all other aspects of the story are copyright material belonging to me.

On another note, a friend of mine is trying to escape from a very toxic living situation. If you can offer something to help, that would be great. If not, a share could go a long way. Either way, thank you very much.

A bit upset that the scene skipped, but it's your story to tell and I trust your ability to deliver. Vincent's confidence has me even more interested now...

I think Rain is simply trying to completely distance herself from Kellen, it's not surprising that Rain doesn't try to argue as it would just draw more attention to the situation, but maybe she's allowing it because she has a very, very slight hope that Kellen may actually become a decent person. Either way I think rain won't be ready to confront this for quite a while yet and maybe we will see a point when Kellen realised how wrong what she did was and have to beg for forgiveness, but I guess we'll have to wait andl see.

Ok so I know this is a far stretch buuutttttt you know how Kellen, Rain, and Aiken never talk about their mom?? Well what if it's because they didn't know her for long. What if their parents divorced. Why would they divorce? Well maybe it was because they got in a fight over "Ryan". What if the mom came around to supporting Rain, or at the time, Ryan, but the father didn't? Remember the first page when the mom (or supposedly the mom) asked them what they wanted to be? Ryan answered "I wanna be a mommy like you!!" That's when the mom realized. Obviously, Kellen would be upset over her parent divorce. Maybe she blames Rain for the divorce?? Idk tell me your thoughts on this please

I always hold out hope that mean people can be turned around... Ebenezer Scrooge, The Grinch, Kellen, etc...

And BTW, I just contributed $30 to the GoFundMe. I may be old and weird, but I do have a heart.

Rain's reaction seems pretty close to the reaction I think I would have given, so I'm not really surprised. It makes the story feel more real to me, anyhow.
