Today, while walking making another chocolate run (yes, I'm of the belief dark chocolate is a major food group) it hit me. Though Daeris is a teen, at this point of the story not in the rest of the series, and is questioning core beliefs after the death of her mother, there are still behaviors she would not demonstrate.
I can visualize it now,( literally I can :) ) , Daeris standing in her aunt's tea house rolling her eyes, arms crossed, giving me the "I'm waiting for you to get this correct" look. It has taken so long for me to figure it out that she is tapping her foot with impatience. LOL I told you she is a teen in this book....
Hmmm...what was that? Oh, yes Daeris, I'll start writing as soon as I'm finished with this post. Sheesh...what a slave driver!
Life is good!
