Reviews For This Just In...
Author's Response: Thanks! I'm sure I will post more up. I had the story in pieces in three different documents and didn't realize, all together, how much I actually had written of it. So since I have most of it, I will def try to knock out what little I need to finish and post it just to post it.
Anywho, can I be Alex? She seems like she's got her head on perfectly straight. Like, if I were put in a situation like she's in, I wouldn't even be able to talk for my lack of being able to think... or breathe. I'm so happy the robber let the dad go with the kid, though. Can you imagine? "Oh, I'll let your kid go, but, you? You're staying." Ugh, I'd die.
Lol. I really feel like everyone in this story is holding it together a lot better than I could even imagine myself doing.
I'll quit typing your eyes off, just know that I'm so excited for the next chapter and I'm really hoping that it's coming soon!
Author's Response: I've been working on the update, I promise lol. I have most of it done, actually. I'm glad you like the idea. Hope I can make it come to life well. A great idea can be ruined by a less than great author lol.
You can be Alex if you really want to. But your mind might change on that later. She is a pretty levelheaded woman though, I must say. I don't think I could be so calm and reasonable either. I know, I did think about separating kid and dad, but it seemed too awful. However, I think that's the last shred of decency the gunman/robber had left, because he sure isn't going to be doing any favors the rest of the story.
They are all holding it together pretty well. Maybe its just shell shock for now. They might crack as the minutes pass by... Anyway. Glad you're excited. Makes me excited to write lol. Thanks for the love... :)
Author's Response: Aw, well I'm so glad I was at the top of the list then lol. That was the same way I roped Erin into my other story, and she was mad at me because that one had like, 20 chapters for her to catch up on and she said she got addicted lol. I've lucked out with updating at opportune times, I guess lol.
Yeah, this was kind of just an idea I had rolling around in my head that I wanted to play out. I'm building up ideas for a sequel to another story I have on here, and this was something I posted to get some creative process going in the mean time. I'd had most of this first chapter and a basic plot outline written for a few months now, so I finally decided to work on it more. I'm glad you like it so far, even though there's not much to go on lol. I definitely wanted Alex to be a strong lead. I needed her to be, for the way I want the story to go. I don't think she sees her decisions as a responsibility. Her actions just follow her moral code, and represent her integrity, and so she acts on them so quickly because they just are who she is on the inside. But you're right, that puts a lot of responsibility on her shoulders because she's making decision for other people, in the big picture.
Sorry to bring out your inner fears of your sister working at a bank. I worked at a grocery store for years that had a bank inside, and it got held up a couple of times while I was working there. Plus, some of my very close co-workers got held up at gun point for the money belonging to the store itself. So it's an idea that has hit kind of close to home for me too, even though they weren't drawn out hostage situations.
And it's not weird to want to know more about who is holding up the bank. I think that whole idea plays against how Alex feels a moral obligation to save those around her, while this guy couldn't care less about the lives of those around him. I'm working on more of this, I promise. Hopefully I'll have more up soon. Thanks for reviewing! I appreciate it!
Love it so far. Also love the name Max, it's really cute for a girl. And Alex seems cool so far even though all we know is that she has a heart and nice tits, lol. I'm sure Early Thirties is thinking exactly that. "She such big... heart. I should probably introduce myself." Go on, Early Thirties, don't wait. Your life might end in hours anyway so put that charm to use one more time. Children are out of the room so who knows what might happen.
Now. With all these *very* important things said, if you excuse me, I have a big house and a boat to get back to.
Author's Response: Oh no! Lol... maybe its just a small coincidence and we're actually planning on taking our ideas in completely different directions lol. I wrote out an outline for this plot a few months back, wrote this chapter about 2 months ago, then started working more on it the last few days. Our minds are too similar haha
We'll see if Early Thirties has his mind in the gutter even facing impending death. Maybe this will just be an orgy story for the rest of the adults. You'll have to wait and see haha
Now, with your review responded to, I must be off to see how my luxury horse trailer is coming along. Priorities, you know...
