Author Notes Edit
Initially, I was considering having Rain’s first appointment still be a long ways away. I changed it later to that particular date (which is only like a week away canonically) when I realized she was looking into therapy around the same time I was (albeit, not the same year). January 10th, 2012 was MY first therapy appointment, so I thought it might be fun if hers was January 10th, 2013. This decision is purely based around sentimentality, but as you might imagine, I really like it. ^_^
Speaking of changes, these pages represent a change in time frame. Initially, I was going to have Jessica call Fara at work to name the date of the appointment (followed by Fara’s heartfelt “thank you and I owe you” line). I like this better though. It’s sort of a weird way to close the chapter, but I think it’s fairly sweet. Not to mention, I liked the idea of hanging this date in the air until the end of the chapter.
Also, just as a reminder, there will be a two week hiatus before we jump into Chapter 16. I’m just as bummed about this as you are. However, I’m behind on a lot of things, so let’s just say this hiatus will be no vacation for me. Chapter 16 will begin on Wednesday, July 17th regardless of everything else, so let’s hope it’s a productive couple of weeks.
January 10th. It's a Thursday morning session, so you'd have to miss school. At least the first half or so. Will that be okay, Fara?
It'll be fine.
Is that how it's going to be every time though? I'd rather she not miss school too often.
I don't know yet. In the future, I'll try to get some evening sessions, but he was pretty booked.
I... actually gave you MY next session.
Are you sure?
It was either that or wait another month or so. You don't want to wait around, do you, Rain?
No. Of course not. A-and thank you very much.
Hey, I just wanted to say "thank you" again for what you did.
Honestly, Justine, this means a lot to her... and to me.
Oh, it's my pleasure, Fara. She's a good kid, and helping her is keeping me grounded and my mind off all of my own woes.
Even still, I owe you big. And one day, I'm going to pay you back somehow.
At this point, I'd be happy if you could just call me by the right name.
