Hey there! I was wondering if you could help me with stuff that could happen in between two major events? The first major event is that the MC is removed from her environment and brought to a hidden place where people lives together and hide from the bad guys who wants to kill them all. The second major event is that the guy who saved them and is hiding them is caught and tortured. I'm at loss in between :-(
I would recommend having your MC bond with other character there and (if we don’t already know) learn why these characters need to be hidden away. You have a lot of room for character development and foreshadowing which will impact the rest of the story. With two major events, you’ll definitely want something more low-key, a calm before the storm type of plateau in the novel. Give your cast a sense of placid security before having things run amok again.
