Lol Loquere, I've decided to take it as someone reaching climax, but I wouldn't flatter myself by thinking my writing could get someone so hot & bothered that they might seize up, but thanks for the thought
Jakelyon, it's true the story does jump about a bit, I added break-away characters to spread the readers view of what's happening in the infected world, as the protagonist has been isolating himself in fear. I have tried to segway as smoothly as possible into the break-away chapters but I understand that the sudden change in perspective might confuse the reader.
I've done it with more than just Rodney though he might be the most confusing of them; the others are quite clearly NOT the protagonist, whilst Rodney doesn't have such a clear distinction. I may need to look over those chapters again…
Thanks for the feedback though, it’s always appreciated.
