Sorry I've been neglectful my lovelies. Work has been BRUTAL. I promise a few more chapters tomorrow.
We meet Randall Tier. We've heard his voice via correspondence previously. I hoped that he came across as a blend of dedicated solider - clean, crisp words - and a man constantly holding himself back, as if a growl or shout was waiting just behind his lips.
This chapter has several of my favorite moments, including the entire last few minutes of Will's contemplation.
Fun fact: I startled myself during editing, which is a good thing. See if you can tell where.
