I think they need to talk things over - which hopefully help heal from the hell they went through. Bottling things up isnt healthy and if Adam bottles stuff up - it wont help Mercy to deal with the aftermath and that goes both ways as well with Mercy.

"Cheeses crusty, got all musty, got damp on the stone of a peach," I agreed. He looked blank, so I repeated it with proper emphasis. "ChEE-zes crustry. Got Al-musty. Got DAMp on the StoneofapeaCH."

I am using this as an excuse to reread one of my favorite Mercy and Adam moments :D

Hey Kitarsha- sent you a pm. Perhaps we should get it translated because it looks like there are still a few readers who are confused about this :D

Hee hee, that means you just got two PM's on it Kitarsha.

Ah, Has, that's too easy - although look who's talking, I didn't get it without your help, so I should probably be quiet on the subject.
I did try very hard before sending out that call for help though...

Hey I didnt get it until someone said to say it out loud and say it fast. Although I got the last half - I had trouble deciphering the middle part ;)

Take the t & e out of 'stone' & replace the P with a b.  I bet you'll get it then.

I had trouble with it when I read it, too.  My husband was watching the race and I was repeating the words over and over again.  He kept looking at me like he had done something wrong and I was mad at him.  Poor guy. ;D

Thank you Opramum.   That scene was a tough one.   Patty really struggled with whether to let it play to completion, or have Adam and the wolves show up in the nick of time.  This is a dark an dangerous road.  It changes the character, and makes the next book or two more difficult.  Nobody wants a whiny, angsty character, but it would be unrealistic to have a rape victim bounce back with no effects.  It's hard to read,and books should be entertaining.  It raises some ugly issues that nobody wants to think about; some monsters are real.

We talked about this several times.  The smart decision was probably to play it safe and have the cavalry ride to the rescue in the nick of time.  All the excitement and none of the issues -- it should have been an easy decision.  But rape and sexual assault are all too common in our culture.  They are usually committed in remote locations, selected for privacy, and for many real women the cavalry doesn't arrive in time.  If we consider rape too terrible to inflict on a fictional character, what does that say to all the real victims; the ones who have to deal with all the emotions and misplaced guilt and unanswerable questions?  We decided it wasn't fair to flinch away and take the easy path.  We're still not sure it was a wise decision, but I think it was the right one.

i have no problems with it being unrealistic, it is fiction after all.
you know those car car commercials where the group of friends are just driving along and talking and then BAM! another car hits them!!! i always cringe when i see it and sometimes turn away, because i got into a bad car accident like that once. and it was just like that unassuming and unexpected, so i can't even imagine what it must be like for a rape victim to read the end of this book.
