School's back in session, and so are the Lunch Notes.
The story left off right when it took over from me as the writer. I had originally planned this sequence to be one where the Monster King fell in love with Cecilia, and demanded that she be his bride. She'd escape from the castle, of course, but somehow it felt all wrong (also, hackneyed, but that realization came later).
What happened was that I realized that a creature like the King would not be in any way influenced by finer emotions. But rage, jealousy, paranoia? Definitely his style. So his character ended up making me change my own story.
