I'm wondering if readers would be fine if there is a time gap between chapters 14 and 15. So, the MC gets dissilutioned because of being lied to in regards to his objectives (Basically, fighting for the independence of his kingdom), and after that happens, his daughter talks him into giving up the whole being a hero thing that he's always had going on in his life. I'm thinking that the group (MC, daughter and a 14 year old kid they rescued early in the story) could go to some isolated area to just live their lifes out of conflicts and trouble. And that's when the time gap would happen. Chapter 15 would start at the 17th birthday of the boy, and things would then happen to motivate the MC to go back to his heroism. At the start of the chapter, there would be a difference in the way the characters talk to each other, to imply that they've grown closer over the last few years (The boy would go from referring to the MC as "sir" to calling him by his name, for example). Does that sound fine, or does it seem like the relationship development between the MC and the boy (Who's acting as a sort of surrogate son after the real one died at the start of the story) should be shown in the book, instead of implied?. Does it sound like lazy writing if there's a sharp change in tone between them?.
