03. Eyes Behind

Provide more background on Chastity’s family, particularly her father. Why is he absent? This can create a stronger emotional pull.   Add more scenes or flashbacks that show Chastity’s relationship with her father and mother. This will heighten the emotional stakes.   Describe the woods in more detail, using sensory language to create a more vivid and eerie atmosphere. The sights, sounds, and even smells can add to the tension.   Introduce local lore or myths about the woods that foreshadow the danger and magic within them.   Show Chastity’s internal struggle more vividly. Her fear, curiosity, and bravery can be emphasized to create a more dynamic character arc.   Develop Adella’s character further. Is there a hint of a past life or a remnant of humanity that makes her actions more complex?
