Just worked on my Stone Within novel.

I hadn't planned it to happen now but my MC has just been told why she is the way she is. I'm still conflicted about if it should be now and if it should be by this character. Of course this character gives Stone a chance to wonder if it's true: how would a homeless, crazy person know all that. She thinks he's crazy because he says he is Jason as I think I said already recently.

But I think I need another character but whom? An angel I think but again whom and how do they meet. Or is this Jason the angel???
