This week’s post is Chapter 5, Scene 6 (1.5.6). This is the end of Chapter 5.
You are a quarter of the way through Book 1 – feedback appreciated!
***NEW: I’m looking for a few additional beta readers. Responsibilities? To read each full chapter as I finish polishing it, give me your feedback so I can make necessary changes before it gets posted.
You also get to see chapters before anyone else – but be aware I’m a slow writer (impossible standards, I think).
The chapters are as polished technically as I can manage before feedback, so I hope there will be very few typos or other kinds of errors.
Email me at abehrhardt [at] gmail, and let me know what your specialties are. None required. Writers welcome. I hope to attract a few NON-writers, too. No pressure, time or otherwise – this is a marathon, not a sprint. My plan is to have the whole story, all three books, finished and polished by Sep. 2014.***

End of previous scene, followed by the link to the new scene:
End of Chapter 5, Scene 5…
“I mean it. Don’t come.” Bianca allowed the raven the last misshapen cube, watched her take wing, settle on a higher branch for the night. How much was it going to cost to untangle their finances? “Concentrate on whatever it is you need to get your documentary.”
“Walk me out?”
Your bags are packed? Cold fury made it easy to avoid a scene. She let him kiss her on the colonnaded portico, lit as brightly as a night set. ‘Always keep control, pet. Choose your time.’ Anyone watching would think she was mollified.
Anyone watching would be dead wrong.
