Review:RemusGal says:
Another really intersting chapter. I can't tell if Kate and Charlie were a couple in the prologue or just good friends ("this wasn't just some old acquaintance", "Why did you leave me"), but it's so interesting how different people react to seeing someone they last saw years ago on awkward terms. I don't want to say it's a male/female difference, though that's how you've portrayed it here. Charlie acts like she's an old friend and there's no nervousness that he might have behaved badly in the past, so she might not be glad to see him. Kate is much more tentative (though we obviously see more of her feelings since you write from her POV). I liked how Charlie blurting out the news of Freds death deterred her from asking the hard questions she wanted to ask. That rings very true. I am guessing it was the attack on Bill that made Charlie leave Romania, but I'm sure if it's important it will come up later. Thanks for the author's note. I was confused about the timeline without it. Keep writing, I'm really enjoying your work!

Author's Response: Thank you so much, RemusGal. I'm glad the author's note helped. I was worried it had gotten confusing. I hadn't really thought about the male/female dynamic, but you're right, that does fit the scene. Their varying reactions to each other will be addressed pretty completely in chapter 7 (I hope!). I'm glad the way Charlie tells Kate about Fred felt realistic. I just couldn't see him telling her in any other way. Thanks again. This review totally sparked an idea for me too. I bet you'll notice it come chapter 7 ;)
