In case anyone forgot from earlier in the chapter (in fairness, it was a long time ago), Heather invited Jessica over for alcohol and venting about her recent relationship woes. So, in case it wasn't obvious, they are quite intoxicated here. Yes, those glasses of wine are pretty full, but we can safely assume they're nobody's first glass. XD

Fara was technically invited too, but she is notably absent. Don't worry. We'll catch up with her again a bit later.

It's funny they should be bringing up Aiken though, considering all the development he's been going through lately. I wonder how he and Jess would act if put into a room together right about now (well, after she sobers up anyway). I mean, it's clear they both miss each other, and they both feel guilty about the way things turned out. But I imagine it would be hard to move past what transpired between them.

I'm guessing the dots are a visual cue that they are drunk?

Dots and bubbles are both pretty common ones, yeah

I mean... or Heather and Jess could just date each other

I dunno - I haven't seen Jess hint at being anything but hetero, and Heather is the one with Aro tendencies.. Even a brief fling might be a bit much to expect. (Heather+Fara on the other hand.. but I doubt we'd ever even hear about that.)

Dear Jocelyn, would it be possible for you to insert links to relevant pages in your author notes? I would like to get back to the pages where we left Heather and Jessica and the moment that Jessica understood that Chase is the father of Emily's baby. I discovered Rain only some months ago, and it's already a blur in my head about how this all came about.
Thanks and if it's too complicated, I understand. ;-)
Jocelyn 17th Apr 2015, 7:03 AM edit delete reply

It's no problem at all. ^_^

To set up the whole chain of events leading up to this, Jessica met Chase while she was working on Valentine's Day, and complaining about being alone. Then he comes in, flirts with her, and next thing they know, he's asking her out for a drink.

At first, Chase seems like a dream come true. We don't see any of the "good dates", but Jessica seems happy.

But then during one of the dates, Jessica brings up the dreaded question about past exes. Chase mentions Emily. There's no proof that the Emily he mentioned and Rain's friend are one in the same though.

And then earlier in this chapter, Jessica is venting about exactly these events to Heather, who invites her over for wine and whining about guy troubles. This brings us to now.

This is probably more information than you needed, but it pretty much lays out the whole arc. I hope this helps. ^_^

Thanks so much! Not too much, just what I needed!

Am I the only one that wants Heather and Fara to start dating? =w=

Also Jocelyn hasn't updated the character list in almost 2 years. :P
Jocelyn 17th Apr 2015, 8:39 AM edit delete reply

I'm working on the character list. It's kind of an overhaul, so it's taking much longer than I'd originally intended.

But it's coming. I promise. ^_^

I'm having a strange sense of deja vu right now.

The kiss of Fara and Heather after getting drunk? lmao

I bought your two books and my kids are really getting into them and it's helped them wrap their mind around what it means to be trans. Thank you so much! Will there be a third book?
Jocelyn 19th Apr 2015, 2:39 PM edit delete reply
@Katherine Caldwell

Yes, there will be a third (and more eventually). I am actually working on the third book as we speak. I unfortunately don't know when it will be out though. Plus, the last two times I promised a release, medical issues sprung up in my life, delaying everything. So, for now... my goal is just a vague 2015. Sorry I can't offer something more specific at this time. ^^;

And thanks for purchasing the first two. Glad your kids are enjoying them. ^_^
