No, sorry. i have no idea where my characters would go after this. IF there is even a story left to tell. But i'll think about it. I meant it to be a short story in itself, not like an actual chapter in a book but thank you! 
As for her name, well, i have a secret penchant for interesting and unusual names. I don't remember exactly how i came up with january snow(it was a long time ago) but i think that I just wanted a name that would go perfectly with my setting.

are you planning to continue this? because i think it has a lot of potential to be turned into a longer story!

but i do love it the way it is, not too cliche and every so sweet. i love the name 'january snow'- how'd you come up with that?

Thanks! i like her a lot, too. i also think that cliches are overrated(which is why they call them cliches) and try to stay as far away from them as i can. Thanks for your input!

this is relly good! i really like January because she's a really good character, unexpecting and different. i also like that the story didn't have a cliche ending - just perfect!

thanks a bunch. ;) but just a question, do you think the "moving" thing was a little too corny or melodramatic? My "Evil" Twin was saying that. Or maybe she was just being cynical......what do you think?

This is really good, Twin. I wish you would think about continuing it, but if that's where you would like to stop, I think it is perfect just the way it is. You are an excellent writer, you put plenty of feeling and a great balance of description and action and all that. :)

Hahaha. So would I. This piece was written for school as a short story and I had to post it in teenink. I never even considered a different ending--mostly because I wanted it to be one of those open ended short stories I hate so much; the kind that held infinite possibilities. Either way, January and Caleb could get together and have one of those passionate long distance relationships--if you're a hopeless romantic. Or they could grow apart, never quite realizing what they had--if you're a realist. But no matter what, whatever ending you dream of for my characters, rest assured that it would probably be much better than anything I could come up with. If you want to read more of my writing though, please check out Hands Stained Red in the action-adventure novels or Away From Tragedy in the Realistic Fic novels. Good luck and thanks for reading!!

Hey! My friend agreed with me that it IS corny. Moving IS NOT dying.

*Sigh* i guess i can never satisfy the beast! LOL. Well, and no, i was think Asian, not white girl with black hair. DUH! And it's supposed to be like life and death! To me, it IS like life and death. and Corny isn't that bad, i wasn't planning on adding or anything to it anyway....and btw thanks. And just so you know, I'm the BIG sis. not the LITTLE!

Secondly, the girl's appearance is a little cliche. Who's been reading Beautiful Creatures? But overall, nice job, lil sissy

Like my screen name, Sis? Okay, here's the criticism: First of all, it's a little corny. That's not to say it's bad- it's good. It's just corny, too. Second, you act like the moving thing is life or death. When she said, "i need to tell you something," i thought all sorts of other stuff. Come out with it. The gap left my mind to wander to "inappropriate" items.

You're welcome :) And you don't have to add more if you never intended to, it's just that I feel there's more to be explained.
