As a conduit for my characters, it was difficult to write all that Rhys experienced upon his return. He was lost, casting about for answers and a sense of belonging. For two years he had thought of nothing but home, yet, upon his return, home no longer existed. Breaking down in the alley after reuniting with Kallen was a difficult scene to channel. Rhys' longing and forlorn state were absolutely heart-breaking.
But, true to his nature, Hodge took me aside and told me what would happen. Being the good-natured and loving person he is, Hodge would step aside and allow Rhys to fall back into Kallen's life.
As his writer I asked Hodge several times if he would be comfortable returning to a platonic relationship with Kallen and he assured me - with a superficial smile - that he would. I knew then that the dynamics between the three of them had changed forever. And as the book closed, I was left with a sense of cautious optimism. They were together once again, but how would their relationship grow and evolve?
Only Ronan knows.
