As some of you know I put more thought than is needed into my writing. With this section ideas were taken out simply because they weren't needed to the story. This action has also happened before with earlier stories in the series. Even in the IG Unlimited forum I questioned people if I should keep the Katy & Darryl piece. These are bits taken out:

. The night before the story truly starts, Alan looking outside his bedroom window, is overjoyed to see snow falling outside.

. Ashley reviewing with him how he's to talk with his relatives. That for what he wants to do went he grows up, superhero is not an option and he should say something more sensible.

. Arriving at their relative's house and with that happily greeted by two of their pet dogs. This idea used as a lead-in for Brain in the next section, treating Alan with much less kindness than the dogs in the flashback.

A design aspect lost was I wanted to show, something in the living room which showed some form of family heritage, something of ancestry / culture in the home he was raised in. Engenis is a made up last name, but I knew it sounded like it could be a real last name when I came up with it. Looking at a wiki page which goes over lettering in parts of last names as to culture origin. I got a bet confirmed. It has a Greek sound to it. But when I attempted to research what might be easily found in a Greek home, Google pulled up jack. Wonderful what the net has to offer, only ancient Greece for information, not modern. I know I could have posted somewhere on the net a request for this information, but having tried to due different nationality research before and coming up empty handed, I decided to skip over this detail in the home.
