12/5/2018 Update: I am soooo excited! I just finished writing the chapter that features the attack on the temple and the aftermath! I think I will actually finish the rough draft of this story before the end of the year, at this rate! Now, some deaths that happened will be handled a bit better in the typed draft later, but it's okay that Kaina isn't feeling the impact of the deaths so strongly right away. It's a lot for her to absorb, and she's traumatized enough already by everything that's happened in the story. So, some issues from this chapter will fully show themselves in later chapters. Now I just need to get Kaina saying goodbye to Teran, who will then volunteer to join her on her journey across the desert, and then their group can get moving! It really is the beginning of the end!
