  1. Hi Mark, I appreciate all the comments you've been sharing as you've read through my stories. I've updated the disclaimer at the start of the story to reflect some of your feedback. However, I do not want to spoil Jamie's death in the disclaimer. I've known a few people like Jamie and have seen how easily all the red flags they raise get ignored. To me, this was not only a story that I needed to tell, but a story that I felt needed to be read. I see where you're coming from and fully respect it. I can see why people would turn to reading stories to relieve stress and inspire them. After all, that is exactly why I write, but it's also why my stories can get so dark. Writing allows me to let it all out. Don't worry, my other published and ongoing stories do not have this dark of an ending, but I would not rule it out for future stories I write. I guess what I'm trying to say is, I dont want you to be scared or dissuaded from reading my stories. I really am still surprised when people enjoy my stories and always appreciate readers taking time to share their thoughts on chapters . Yet I have to be upfront about my writing style, there will always be grit and darkness to my stories and although I've only written one tragic ending, the possibility of similar endings is not out of the question for future stories (including ongoing series). For better and for worse, I wear my heart on my sleeve when I write but I wouldn't want to do it any other way. I really do appreciate the feedback and hope this doesn't come across as rude or dismissive in anyway. I look forward to reading through more of the comments you've left, Ace
  2. Chapter 49: Group Therapy I couldn’t help but just sit and think things over as Adam returned to his seat and friendly small talk began. Sadie’s actually going to move to San Francisco? Never in my wildest dreams did I see that happening! I know I’ve always wanted her to, but I never thought she’d actually do it. I guess being alone in our small old town made it stop feeling like home. Afterall, if there’s anything I’ve learned over these past few months, it’s that family and home, they only
  3. The hidden ones is my favorite as well! I enjoyed writing those 2 books so much, I’m very excited to start the 3rd one in the very near future.
  4. Thank you for the kind words. I completely understand not wanting to read book one, especially right now. There is enough heartbreak and sadness going on in the world without reading a tragedy. If you are interested, my newest story Golden City is a far cry from where I started, and a hell of a lot lighter! I appreciate your support and I'm always really happy to see someone enjoying these stories. They were my first attempts at writing, so seeing someone enjoy them means a lot!

    Thank you for sticking around. I know it's been a long wait, so I really do appreciate your patience. The Hidden Ones: Ascension is the next story on my agenda (Some light spoilers ahead for anyone who hasn't read the Hidden Ones) Thanks again for the kind words and your patience! Hope I've made the wait worth it!

    Chapter 48: Thrive I held Sadie tighter as I tried my hardest to make sure this was reality and not just another dream. I mean this is Sadie, sometimes I swear she’s scared of her own shadow! My Mom nearly had to drag her into the car if we took any trip bigger than the general store! As Sadie looked down at me, I couldn’t help but see some surprise on her face. “It’s only been a few weeks, but somehow you already look older.” She observed. “He’s grown a lot since that trip.” Adam su
  7. Chapter 47: God’s Plan As I walked back downstairs to find a sleeping Dizzy and Adam, I couldn’t help but smile. So this is what my summer will be like, huh? Waking up at the crack of dawn, working my ass off at the shop and coming home exhausted. To some people that’d sound like a grind, but so long as Adam and Dizzy are with me, well, I think it’ll be kinda fun! After all, I’m no stranger to hard work and while the shop ain’t easy, well, it isn’t exactly farming in the Texas sun! I mea
  8. Chapter 46: The Price is Rite I have to admit, when I heard Colleen wanted to grab lunch with me, I couldn’t help but get nervous. Don’t get me wrong, she’s nothing but nice to me, but I just felt a little, intimidated. And I know, that sounds ridiculous! But she means the world to Dizzy and I know it’s important to him that we like one another. I couldn’t help but laugh to myself as I thought it all over. I was that nervous, but I still ended up telling her I love her son. I guess I was

    Chapter 45: Free Sleep came quickly as Dizzy and I finally laid down for the night. It’s strange, so much had happened today, and yet, this is the best I’ve slept in months. Maybe even the best I’ve slept since I lost my Mom. It just felt like my worries were fading, like I could finally be a normal high schooler again. It was like I was finally set free from those old expectations from childhood, from myself. When my phone alarm sounded at five in the morning, it didn’t even bother me.
  10. Chapter 44: Partner in Crime As we all sat around the bleachers eating, I couldn’t help but watch Adam a little closer. I don’t know what I’ve been looking for these past few days. Watching the men around me in North Texas, I’ve always had this image of who my father should be. Strong, reliable, quiet, and the kind who works from sun up to sun down. When I first met Ezra, well I thought he was going to check off every one of those boxes, hell maybe he does. But the reality of who he is w
  11. Check back later tonight (around 7-8 pm EST) or, at the latest, tomorrow. Sorry about the wait, but I'm glad you stuck around long enough to ask for more!

    I'm glad you enjoyed it! This won't be the final chapter. Still some other loose ends to tie up. The status of temporary hold is automatically applied to stories if they haven't been updated in a while. Hopefully I can start posting chapters a bit more frequently.

    Chapter 43: Control Once again, I spent another night trapped within my own head. Ezra reached out with dinner plans, but I couldn’t do that to Adam. Somehow the emotions of these past couple days keep repeating. I keep hurting Adam worse and worse, and even though I know it’s happening, it feels like there’s nothing I can do to stop it. It feels like I’ve lost control, not over myself, but over everything around me. And I’m just so, so, confused. Ezra cares about Adam. I don’t care what

    Thank you so much! I do have a fourth book in mind, but it may not begin for a while. Right now I'm working on finishing my story Golden City, following that will be the first 10-15 chapters of the 3rd book in the Hidden Ones Series and then a new unnamed stand alone story. The stories from Tales of the Underground were my first attempts at writing, so it really means a lot to hear someone enjoyed all 3. It helps keep me motivated to write the 4th story. I'm also excited to hear you'll check out my other stories. Of all my stories, I think Spotlight was my favorite to write. I look forward to seeing more of your comments and reviews! - Ace

    I was reading through the first 15-20 chapters this week, and noticed a particularly high amount in this chapter and the ones around it (also a few inconsistencies I'll circle back and straighten out once the story is done!). Thank you for bearing with us! I'm glad you're enjoying the story. I've enjoyed reading your comments over the past few days! Hope you continue to enjoy it! Edit: I almost forgot to add that my editor has been going through old chapters and fixing them up. He's sent me a few that I've been meaning to repost. Tomorrow I'll take a look and get to it!
