The Prettiest Thing - Chapter Sixteen

Chapter sixteen of The Prettiest Thing is now uploaded on AFF.net. Thank you to everyone for the reviews. I have read them all and I am sorry that my characters seem rather flat and one-dimensional. I will try harder to work on their differents characterizations and personalities. Also, thank you to Lauren for the fan art of Brett, Lyla and Andy below. Please read and review the chapter for me. I greatly appreciate it. Thank you.

Oh Kate, please don't listen to whoever said your characters were one dimensional. What the hell were they thinking when they said that?

You make your characters come to life as we read them, and we're all able to believe that what you write can happen in real life.

Your characters are very real to me, despite what other people may think.

I really liked this chapter. I like the impact of Lyla's marriage on the Scott family. Hopefully there aren't too many problems between Nick and Connie because of Lyla...

I really wish Ella would stand up for herself more when it comes to Brett. He is crazy to think that she should wait around while he gets his crap together enough to tell Trevor.

I'm guessing that it was Joy who stepped out of the tent. Which would be a shame because that will end up causing problems later with her and Trevor because I'm sure Ella and Brett will ask her not to tell. Whereas, if it were Trevor the whole thing would be out in the open. Either way, it is just adding to the drama.

Oh and I really hope Ella doesn't change her mind about using Monty to make Brett jealous. That would be totally beneath her.

Have I said how much I like this story?

WHAT???! Whoever said that is crazy. Kate don't listen. I truly believe that these people have no talent themselves and are mad that they don't have half the talent you have I love you characters I feel like they are people I know. Sometimes I think we know the same people. Thank You for working on the weekend on this update. I know you had a busy weekend and I just wanted to let you know I appreciate you.

Now it is time to read hapter 16. I'm so happy.

OMG, OMG, OMG. I really hope it was Trevor that stepped out, but on the other hand I'm worried it is Trevor. I know it doesn't make any sense. I'm so excited thought. I absolutely can't wait for an update. I'm on the edge of my seat. . . .literally. I have a big Kool-Aid grin on my face, I'm so happy with this chapter and all the possibilities. OMG. Please end my suspense by updating soon. You know I'm going to be checking every hour for update.
Love Ya,

One dimensional? Ok someones clearly reading the wrong story....anyways loved that update there's always so much going on I don't know where to start!

Poor Ella I feel so bad for her but honestly i'd hate if she just used someone else to make Brett jealous he's clearly just as confused as she is.

And seriously what an ending!! Can't wait to see who it is I have a feeling it might be Trevor & if it is i'd secretly love it for him not to care at all but that makes it all to easy! Great chapter can't wait for more!

This is a great chapter ! I just love the end ! I'll be waiting for the next one.
Your characters are very real, like your readers, there are not "one dimensional".
I like the repercussions of Lyla's action on the family, I hope there will be soon a phone call with her sister and an explication with her parents. Lyla is an interesting character, just like Brett's grand mother and I hope to see her again soon in this story (I would have liked a discussion between her and Brett when he talked to her about his relationship with Ella, that could have been interesting).
But I'm sure that all these characters will have a part in this story and I trust you to make it very good !
Have a nice day !
