Dammit. I made myself cry again.
The end of ACT I is kind of intense for me. I guess i forgot.
Anyway, i’m on page 257, (50,243 words in.)
ACT I is done. Whew.
No $10 for Emily, so she doesn’t have to feel guilty. 😛
Instead, Emily gets a dragon of awesome!
Ras took Joyce’s hand, squeezed it and turned to go, But he pulled her back, leaned in close to her ear. He whispered but she heard him perfectly through the cacophonous noise. “My dear, thank you so much for what you do for me tonight. May all your dreams come true.”
She leaned away, didn’t know what to say, so she just smiled and made her way to the stage.
Backstage was almost as loud as the club. She and Beth and Brian wove their way in to the dark wings. Beth and Brian set down their bags sort through their juggling gear.
The lights flared and Beth saw a man in a side room, sitting in a wheelchair staring at the floor. He looked sad.
She wanted to go to him but was distracted when the band finished their song. The crowd swelled to a deafening roar.

Snort! Ahhahahah! I do not feel guilty in the least. 🙂
I'm sorry it made you cry. At least you know it's packed full of emotion, just waiting to sink into the souls of your readers, and draw up their feelings into its decanter of sadness.
Also, that dragon is so awesome, it rocks the socks off of an alien driving a corvette through SPACE!
I need to add a corvette driving to the second half of the novel.
