So not a super productive night on word count. I did some editing and rewrite over the last couple of hours. Still managed about 1200 words of new content. Probably netted another 300 in edits.
So the update?
Miranda doesn’t know what’s up. She was gone for a week but had promised him she would come back. When she went back to the clearing he wasn’t there. Hours passed and she was cold in the dark. He answered her with a few very pointed questions from the dark and that was the last she heard from him. She can tell he’s around but she is the only one in the house as far as she can tell. He doesn’t answer her. She’s confused and getting scared. She came here for him.
Where is he? What did she do? Does he come back? Does she leave again? She has so many questions and knows the answers are going to lead to more.
