    Part 2 -

    Chapter 1

    Across the other side of town, there was a very different conversation going on, and this one was far less excited. Daniel Yates was sat morosely at the kitchen table, opposite his mum Val. He had a face like thunder, and much as he’d never admit it as a nearly 12 year old boy, the glint of tears in his eyes, as he listened to his mum’s admonishments.

    “Honestly, Daniel, you can’t live your life shut away on your own you know! I...

    You'll have to contact the admin/ moderators about the donor lounge. I don't run it or control it or anything- I just post stories there as a way to help support this site....

    Hey Cute Kitty, I've really enjoyed reading your story! However, I'm having a little trouble finding the donor's lounge to read the rest of it. I've donated, but my profile doesn't seem to have any additional access to any stories. Do you have to set up a monthly donation to get access to the donor's lounge?

    Chapter 41

    As they sat there, cross legged on the tarmac, Lucy realised that her extra half an hour of sleep that morning meant that she’d had to choose between eating breakfast and paying a visit to the bathroom before they had left. Her stomach had of course won, as it always did, and she’d satisfied her hunger with juice and toast, but that meant she’d not brushed her teeth…or gone for a wee. It wasn’t a problem, she was sure, as she didn’t even really need to go even...

    Part 1 - Chapter 38

    Well, this is a surprise, you two being nice to each other for once! First time for everything though I suppose” Lesley chuckled, but she was glad to see Lucy had joined them, and that she was looking far happier than earlier.

    “Thanks for bringing your washing down kids, can you throw it into the washer for me please whilst I finish putting dinner out?” 

    Both of the children nodded, and padded over to the machine, throwing their...

    Penguin Wow really, that's fantastic to know, thanks! I know it's proved really popular wherever I've posted it (in fact it was the most active story for a couple of months over on another forum, but a rule change there meant it's no longer allowed :'( ) and on it's own site as you say there are lots of views but not a lot of interaction, so it's great that people are reading.

    In that case, I shall continue sharing here too! ...

    Well, normally I wouldn't do this, but I checked. Your story is actually getting a lot of views from people who don't have accounts, so you may not get replies, but people are reading it. ...

    Just gauging whether there's any interest in this here, before I continue to share? The story itself is up to 126 chapters, well over 150,000 words split into 3 parts now over at www.theforgottenhomework.co.uk - I don't want to draw people away from here though, and have always thought forums are an excellent means of serialising stories and gaining valuable feedback, so if there's any interest I'll keep sharing a handful of chapters at a time. ...

    Nice slow build, scene setting, exploring the characters. I fear young Katie forgot how expensive horses are to keep but maybe she's getting a discount for helping out.

    Typos:
    stead->steed
    handle->handler
    wounded->sounded

    On the plus side, good use of unbeknownst.

    Katie's collapse at a small accident is surprising but I look forward to reading how Jet helps her through this difficult situation.

    As she walked away across the yard toward the stable block, Katie’s mind was in turmoil, with so many conflicting emotions trying to fight their way to the surface and vying for her attention. Everything that had just happened with Jet was clouding her thoughts, but she couldn’t ignore the fact that she was crossing the yard almost bow-legged as a result of her accident, starting to shiver as the wetness took a hold and absolutely mortified that she’d disgraced herself so completely for the...
