I’m changing voices now and the next few chapters will be told from the point of view of Cotter, the young boy in the middle of it all.
When I was writing tomorrow’s chapter, Cotter’s voice came to me quite naturally and the chapter was a quick write for me. This tells me that perhaps if I ever published this as an entire book (though there are no plans to do that right now), the whole book may work better through his eyes. You’ll have to read it and tell me what you think.
No worries though, the unnamed social worker who has been telling all of the story so far will return…but… she may get a name very soon.
For now, I’m going back to the beginning and letting Cotter tell you his side of the story. And what a disturbing lil story it is!
