There is so much yes in this chapter. First of all, not only was the binding coldness seeping into the building some fantastic imagery, but it set an amazing foreboding mood for the rest of the chapter. Furthermore, I think that this scene acted as some amazing foreshadowing as Drew steals away to his office, away from the celebrations and away from the people. The mystery surrounding the presents and who the 'he' that Drew is referring to (and if my inference-association is not completely on the fritz, perhaps the interest of Drew's lovesickness?) leaves me with so many awesome questions! And then, of course, the photographs of Drew and another person during questionable acts! He's totally being blackmailed, isn't he? Of course, there's so much suspense at the end of this chapter--so many questions that need answering--it's really fantastic.
I’m so sorry it’s taken me so long to respond to this review, but I’m so glad you enjoyed the chapter. This chapter is definitely one, big bag of foreshadowing and it makes me happy that you liked that, because I was a little unsure of this first chapter. Is he being blackmailed? Yes. Why is he being blackmailed? Now that is the mystery. :P
I’m also sorry I haven’t posted anymore. I kind of took a year or so away from all things fanfiction, and I wasn’t sure if I wanted to keep this story as I’d planned or take it in a slightly different direction. But I am excited to get back to it and I hope you come back for more.
