A dream leads to a conversation that has needed to happen for a long time...
Chapter 20: D E C I S I O N S
Days will come where you get scared Each step of the way, though, we're right here Choose what makes your heart feel best I hope you see that we've always cared Sat beside you when you've needed us near It's not always easy when you're taking this test Our hearts are with you when your thoughts are impaired Now you can see you've got nothing to fear Soon, my son, you'll be able to rest
I spent a long time before the production of this chapter, pondering how I wanted to do this one. I knew the final decision had to be that Bobby wanted to go back, but I really wasn't sure how to go about it, so I did something that I thought really worked. I actually let 'Bobby' write the chapter. Yes, Bobby is my character, but there are times where I'll write something out and Bobby in my head is like "No, no, you're not saying it right". I decided to just listen to what Bobby wanted to say and scripted out the chapter based on HIS explanation of things, rather than trying to use my own. In effect, I let the 12 year old in me come out for this chapter, and I don't regret the decision I made to do so.
