Now I'm wondering if this should be split into two chapters? Although the first two scenes alone might not make up enough of a chapter by themselves.
I don't want a 6000 word chapter, though, if that's where it ends up.
But I may have to.
Geez, just finish the damn thing first and then worry about stuff like that.
On the plus side, if I do end up splitting it, there won't be a six month lag between chapters like this last time.
