I have finally fixed chapter 4. It is not the best fix ever, as I tried for over two months to locate the original copy electronically and also in print. I actually print this story out every five chapters or so just in case something like this happens. The thought of losing everything to an electronic glitch terrifies me.
Unfortunately, even my hard copy was wrong. I KNOW I wrote in chapter four originally how he mutated into a chimera virus. But I have no actual proof so I had to rewrite.
The rewrite is not my best work, but it does solve the continuity problem and evolves Mark into a Chimera Virus. I tacked it on to the end of the chapter if you would like to read it specifically.
I tried to rewrite this several times and nothing sounded correct. It all sounded very forced and did not flow well with the rest of the story. I finally have something I am satsified with, but not 100%. When I eventually do a complete edit and rewrite on this story in the future I am sure it will change again.
Just added a small change to chapter 12 about inventory. Without it the logic doesn't work in later chapters.
So once again,
THANKS FOR READING.
