Oh, No.

One of my characters did it to me again.

Surprised and shocked me.

And sacrificed himself for the good of all.

I didn't expect this out of this particular tertiary character. He's barely spoken to me in the years he has been part of the Kendrick series. Now he is looking at me and telling me, "I will be the anchor for them all."

I don't want to write this. I don't want to lose him. I don't want his bondmate to suffer this sacrifice. This was supposed to be a victory episode of the series.

But, the character, and the story, are insisting.

Oddly enough, I know how you feel. A year ago I wouldn't have. Hope you can write his death without feeling to guilty about it.

Years ago when my friend Hilary and I met Wendy Pini, Hilary asked her why she killed One-Eye. She said, with a sad look in her eye, "I didn't kill One-Eye. The trolls killed One-Eye." It took me many years to understand what she was talking about.

I totally understand what she means.

My husband doesn't understand me but he's still willing to hold me when I cry over the loss of a character.
