She went there?
Wow. Did not see it coming.
Melanie's hero has moved in a surprising direction, leaving mine scratching his head. Co-creations usually involve separating the main characters, so I won't worry about Autumn. Cody will have to get into trouble on his own.
My earlier co-writes employ terrorist kidnap, and transportation to a different dimension, to separate my hero from my co-author's (Thank you, Ted Staunton, Marthe Jocelyn). Maybe in the upcoming chapter my guy will fall in with bad companions. Street gang, chess club, young Conservatives.... Yeah, I'm feeling it.
