OK, so since I really don't have time to write anything because I have to get to studying for my final exams tomorrow in Spanish and World History (one more day and I'm a junior in high school!), I'm just going to say this is a bit of a dramatic chapter. :) Let's just say Marc and Paul don't see eye to eye...

Anyway, here's the next chapter! 1410 words long! Whoo!

Paul is not a happy camper...

Wish me luck! I'm off!

WOW! In case the long space before me updating doesn't give this away...writing this chapter was a doozy! I just couldn't seem to get the hang of it! I had a hard time getting the characters to flow and trying to figure out what should happen. 

And honestly, not much happens really. A little bit I guess, but not much. Sorry! I feel like I kept going in circles with this chapter. *sigh* So much stress from the end of school doesn't do a writer good. And yet it's over 2000 words long...

Yay! I finally got around to updating! 

Sorry it took me a little while. The past week has been a little crazy, with school, my babysitting job, and now band practice, so I've barely had any time to think, let alone write!

But, here it is! I decided to work on it tonight when the plot for this chapter sort of just came to me, like all my chapters for all of my stories seem to do again. I didn't have to think too hard on the subject, but I finally got it down on paper!

Anyway, this chapter is another "showdown" chapter between Amy and her parents, Paul and Tessa. I knew I wanted them to have a little one-on-one chitchat about Amy's decision, and I also knew I wanted them to find out about Marc and Amy's engagment before too much longer. I knew exactly how I wanted them to act, so that wasn't hard, but I had to end it at yet another one of my infamous semi-awkward cliffies in order to keep everything together and not go too far. :)

Anyway, enjoy!

"I'm two for two, man!" I can't believe I've updated two things in one day! Must mean it's spring :D Okay, so this chapter is mostly Wilbur and his whole ordeal. Thought it appropriate to give them resolve at the hospital so we can shift to a new dilemma which I only briefly set up at the end of the chapter. So, hope that's okay. 

Poor Marc is only mentioned in this chapter, but I know he has a lot left to face so I thought he deserved a break :P I couldn't resist recycling a few of the themes from Doris Returns x) You'll see... 

Anyways, I also tried to delve a little deeper into pre-Marc in the hospital Amy the same way I tried to delve into the lighthearted fun side of Marc in Chapter 10. I don't know why, but behind that very serious facade, I think there's a bit of a dork hiding in Amy. I don't mean a loser of a dork. But this very carefree, spirited woman who has many skills and interests.  And being single only until recently (though we've never really delved into her past romance life-though I've always imagined it pretty dull minus maybe a few blind dates or group dates or something like that while she was trying to forget Marc...) I could totally imagine her sitting at home curled up on the couch watching her favorite movie or watching a television show and then gabbing about it in the breakroom with her fellow gal pal employees. After all, anyone who works in photography for a newspaper would most definitely have to stay current :P But I was adament to show she is not addicted by any means to a television show because although I think she would enjoy entertainment as the next person, I think she would also be the person who could be equally as satisfied simply reading a book or doing a crossword. I guess Amy is very versatile and when alone, will do whatever sounds best to her in the moment whether it's watching a movie or going for a hike in the woods (if there are any woods left in the future! ;P). And that's why I can see her and Marc living a very adventurous and active lifestyle and possibly traveling the world and things like that. 

Okay, enough with the pshycoanalysis of Amy...yeesh. I just want to say that I was working very hard to come up with a type of close for this chapter besides Amy boringly eating. And I couldn't think of anything...so...I kinda took your cliffy. I'm sorry!! I know you probably imagined it as them standing in the doorway of Marc's hospital room and so did I...but I'm soooo sorry. I'll hide if I must...

-gulps- Aheh...has it really been a full ten days since the last chapter was posted? A heh heh...my bad...

I thought Tim deserved an honorable mention in this chapter. :P He doesn't appear, but he is mentioned at the end of the chapter...

Oh, and speaking of this chapter, I hope the second part isn't too awkward. It came across as a little awkward to me, but...that's just me...

Anyway, I guess that's all for right now...have fun!

Okay, so that was my fastest response time ever to a previous chapter I think! But this chapter came quite easily to me. And honestly, it could probably be considered more like Chapter 9 part 2 more than 10 but oh well since both feed directly off one another. 

Not much to say. I had to give Cornelius a great moment since I totally felt the strength of his character last time around. But of course, had to go back to Marc and Amy for awhile since this story is still mainly about them. I also kinda threw in the concept that we talked about that one time with Marc and Amy and kids. You'll see...

Guess that's all there is. At least, that's all I can think of. So on to the chapter...

Well, here's chapter nine of My Heart Still Knows! 

Okay, I have to say I had fun writing this chapter. :) I love it when I get to write all kinds of messes and pandemonium. It's always really fun. 

Anyway, while I'm pretty sure I did alright with this chapter, I'm still not so sure, since it's pretty late and I'm a little tired. I wasn't exactly sure how to pick up from where the last chapter left off, but I think I did alright with it. Still, if it seems a little iffy, blame the (tired) fingers!

Oh, and sorry for the awkward ending. I seriously wanted to write more, but I wasn't sure where else to end it, or where to go from there, so I just decided to end it there. :P Sorry about that!

Okay, so I got a little carried away with this chapter...it's exactly 2,000 words long! And yet, not much action actually happens. Hmm...but, I hope you didn't have anything in mind for what was going to happen with Carl's, "feeling" Robin, because I kinda went in a strange direction. Sorry! Probably should have asked...

Let's see, not really much else to report on in this chapter. Oh, except I also kinda made Max a golden retriever. I don't know why. Maybe because I was thinking of my late aunt's golden retriever, Boise and how this would exactly describe his tempermant. He's just so sweet and you can hug him and he'll just hug you back as best as a dog can. But I haven't seen Boise since before it happened... :( So I've determined that I will eventually get a Golden Retriever myself.

Okay, back to the story...I guess that's about it.

 Alright, so first off, the title is by no means permanent. :P It's just a working title for now until we decide for sure what we want our title to be.

Anyway, so here's chapter seven of the webstory! I decided to add a little...drama here by having Amy's parents enter the picture here. I decided to make it to where her parents find out about Marc. I know I wanted Amy to have a close relationship with her parents, since she was adopted when she was very young, but I also wanted it to be where Amy and her parents (particularly her father) don't exactly see eye to eye on the whole situation, as it really should be.

I also just had to add Wilbur to this chapter. I miss the little guy! And Carl, too, of course. Wherever Wilbur goes, Carl is sure to follow (in some way or another)!

Oh, and I figured that Amy would be the kind of person (being a photographer) that would like to go out and do things, so I sort of just decided out of the random blue to give her Max to jog with. ;P

OK, Cali, you get to decide the next part of Amy's personality. Promise! Amy's really your character (since you created her). Marc's mine...that's strange, huh?

Um...*gulp* just like the icon says, after I post this, I'll be hiding in a closet somewhere! Basically, I took almost a month (darn school) to get this out and once I did start typing I got on a roll and with that roll came a horrible horrible semi-cliffy! Robin, you're gonna kill me when you read what I have Marc say to Amy and so on and so on! But I won't go into too much detail here.

Basically, I thought you could make the decision but it could also make for some interesting twists in the future. Seriously, I can already see at least 5 different twists and turns this story could make along the journey to the infamous "the end"!! And once you read the chapter, I'll even share with you some of the twists and turns my imagination has conjured up and maybe if you end up with any afterwards...

Anyways, it's not exactly an "eventful" chapter but I JUST had to write some fluffy stuff. I haven't truly tapped into the emotional connection between Marc/Amy until now and feel awesome now that I have xD Plus, I think I wrote this with the possibility that I did because I seriously am missing the super drama from Doris Returns! :P

Okay, here it is :3

Wow! Talk about a sacrifice of love on Amy's part! I don't think I could do that. But I just picture Amy as this extremely determined woman willing to do whatever it takes to help Marc. What's that!? Oh, yeah, I should probably run now...
