So a while ago I posted a thread asking people what they would do if someone they loved told them that they had killed someone. It was very helpful and got me through a major stall in my story. I've hit another one, so I thought I might bring it to you guys again. My MC has killed someone. A pregnant woman, to be exact. She was an innocent, nothing to do with anything going on other than being in the wrong place at the wrong time. It wasn't an accident, but the MC feels tremendously guilty about it and it basically alters her entire personality for the rest of the story. I want her to find absolution. This story has supernatural elements, so the way it is currently written is that she has an opportunity to speak to the soul of her victim (no ouiji board or anything like that, they are speaking more or less face to face.) The problem is...I'm at a loss for words. I don't know what she should say. "I'm sorry," sound so desperately feeble. And I'm not sure how the victim should react either, except that it isn't instant forgiveness. Any thoughts on this topic would be greatly appreciated.
