I didn't think I was going to make it tonight, but I did. When I finally broke that 6,000 word mark I knew I could finish.
I felt as if I was pulling every word out individually, not sure how they were going to fit into the story. But I finally made it to 6,678, with ten words to spare. And nine minutes to spare until midnight.
Zero was there as well, taking charge of a couple of Penelope's employees. I can see right now she's going to have to find some new ones after she gets back on her feet from the car accident she and Christopher were involved in, the one where her father tried to kill her. At least, I think her father is trying to kill her. That point is still up in the air.
What I do know is one of her employees is going to die, probably tomorrow night when I reach that scene. But first she has to pass along some information so I can't kill her yet.
