Alrighty folks, chapter 19 is now posted as “Presumptions“! I didn’t end up calling it “Hidden Message,” because that specific reference is kind of being split into two parts, across two chapters. This chapter has the first real kiss scene in it, so if you’re squeamish about that kinda stuff, now is probably the time to clock out.
Next chapter I’ve got to take care of Bre’s wardrobe, Rome has to shop for ingredients and Bre has to decode the “hidden message” (the contents of which should create a nice argument between the two of them), throw in some foreshadowing,…and then we’re off to a certain someone’s auspicious party! (Oh what fun!)
