Hey guys, I just wanted to offer an explanation as to why this story is on an indefinite hiatus. I appreciate the positive reviews, and I apologize for not updating recently—when I restarted this story a few months ago, I fully intended to update at least a few times a month. However, life has a funny way of turning plans upside down.

My best friend for over a decade is a very very intelligent guy academically, but practically he can be damn stupid. He decided that it was a good idea to climb on the trunk of a friend's car, and the driver of said car was unaware and decided to take off driving and make a sharp turn, throwing my best friend off the car. He was rushed to the emergency room with a crapton of bleeding on his brain, and he was in critical condition for about seven hours. Worst waiting room wait ever. They ended up having to take a chunk out of his skull to get the intercranial pressure down.

He's in rehab for traumatic brain injury to the areas that control speech, critical thinking, and emotional control. He freaks out and won't do his rehab if I don't visit him each day and spend time with him during and outside of his therapy. Long and the short of it that this is where most of my spare time is going to, and when I'm not there, I'm emotionally exhausted and can barely get through my homework. Not too conducive to writing.

Sorry I got all detail-y there, but I just felt like I owed you guys an explanation of what's been going down.

PS: Hope that's a good enough reason, Lookattherainbow. Sorry you disapprove, but my life is a little "ridiculous" right now. (Passive aggressive, hold the passive.)
