The Impossible Children

Edit Log: Book 1 - Chapter 4

I’m not one to obsess over my work after I’ve put it out there. I might fix a few typos here and there or clarify a sentence or two.

But I’ve decided to make a major change to a chapter less than a week after I published it. I think this helps to clarify something that was either vague or completely omitted.

The original text read:

“Come with me.” He held out a hand to her, open in invitation. “Later, we will come back and save your sister. I promise.”

Tears began to flow freely down her cheeks. Annabelle nodded. “Okay.”

Annabelle took his hand, and together they walked over the rocky hill and deeper into the gloom.

And now it reads:

“Come with me.” He held out a hand to her, open in invitation. “Later, we will come back and save your sister. I promise.”

Tears began to flow freely down her cheeks. Somehow Annabelle knew in her heart that if she left now, she might not see her sister for a very long time. But at the same time, she felt sure that this boy who she did not know would keep his promise.

“Okay.” Annabelle took his hand, and together they walked over the rocky hill and deeper into the gloom.

Maybe I’m overthinking things, but I think this change was necessary.

Hopefully, this won’t become a regular occurrence!
