DV Ch. 32 update

Hey, ho, everyone.  I got some writing done the last two nights.  :)  We're at 875 words.  I have reached the halfway point of my outline... generally... but there is a section which may be much longer if I let it.  We'll see!

---

The battle in her mind between trying to escape and wanting to get the story was beginning to rage. At this moment, although she had decided the opposite way only minutes ago, she determined that the moment she even got the tiniest break, she would scream bloody murder for Clark. 
 
Suddenly, she broke out of the trees, Mitchener a silent menace behind her. They were in the middle of a clearing, and in the center of the clearing was a charming wooden cabin, porch light aglow.
 
“Here we are, Ms. Lane,” Mitchener announced as he gently shoved her forward. She could hear him digging in his pockets for the keys, and then he came around to the side, making a show of the gun for her benefit. “Please move a few steps back, Ms. Lane.” He gestured smoothly with the pistol. “I assure you that I have plenty of practice using this.”
 
As Lois moved backward, desperately seeking a way out of this situation, he lifted the keys toward the lock. But suddenly, he paused, a puzzled frown coming over his features. Michener turned his head to the right, and gazed at the empty gravel driveway. Had he expected to see something there?

Bedtime!

Hooray for writing progress! I am so pleased to hear it's moving along. Still biting my nails, though -- you'll have to end our suspense soon, right? Please?

Well... if I told you that, it wouldn't be as suspenseful, would it?

Rest assured that I am not so evil that I'll keep you in suspense forever. There will be resolution... someday. :)

Man, I love your teasers. Enough to make me mad that you teased me in the first place, but enough goodness to forgive you and make me want more! Looks like we're in for a good one! *holds on to her seat*

Kind of a hate/love relationship, huh? My reaction (such as to the WICKED AWESOME Spider-Man 3 trailers) is generally - oh, evil! I love it! I enjoy squirming...

But you'll get relief, such as it is, by Sunday evening. Then I have a whole Thanksgiving weekend to hopefully plant my butt in front of the computer! Yay!

Ah, a teaser before the cold meds make me succumb to sleep. :) Delightful!

Hope you had a lovely night's sleep. And are refreshed and feeling healthier! How's the ol' Muse, bisty-dear? She got the cold, too?

*kisses to make it better*

The Muse has been reluctant to show her face these days. It's my job to convince her to do otherwise today. Wish me luck...this may not be pretty. lol

**squee** What was there???

I just hope that the next chapter won't be like the two last one! '~'

I'm afraid I can't promise you that, honey. As I told ancarett above, it's not suspense if you know it'll be over soon! So, just relax. Take deep breaths...

WOW!
Great teaser... I review the chapters on ff.net as 'Lady Elora'. :) Poor Lois! And where is Clark all this time?! *stamps foot impatiently* I eagerly await this new chapter!!!

Re: WOW!
Allora!

I'm so glad to see you over here! Squee!

I just finished Ch. 32, and sent it off to my betas. It should be posted tomorrow, depending on how quickly they can get to it. I'm about to post Teaser #2, actually!

Another wonderful teaser, my dear. Lois is still in danger while Mitchener holds all the cards, but it appears that he is a little thrown off by what he does not see. Hmmm. In the words of Mr. Spock, fascinating.
