This feels as though I have started reading it half way through. I am not sure what is going on.
Author's Response: Hello. I thought about your review and meant to reply this morning. After looking at this again as a reader and not a writer, I realize that stepping back was a good thing because you are right. I was carefully watching what I was doing here and I missed that I started this in the middle. I hoped that I had filled in the gaps with a short story. I missed the mark again. I do plan to rewrite this and try again, perhaps through another point of view to go to the beginning to the end. That way, I hope that I get this out of my head and onto paper. I'm sorry this was confusing and thank you for calling this to my attention. Thank you for reading.
