As a fellow author and long-time member, I'd strongly recommend you avoid splitting up your story like this.
Those who read the first chapter of your story will miss this one. Especially since this topic title isn't the same as Part 1's topic title.
Trust me, if you want to gain a readership and got some feedback on your story, you need to post all your chapters into the same topic.
That way your readers will be able to follow the progression of your story without having to sort out through different threads.

No, that's not what I meant either.
What I meant is, all your chapters should be in the same story thread.
I suggest you post this chapter in your "Disappearing friends of my sister" topic.
When you're write part 3 in the future, post it in there as well.
You can "edit" your first post and change your topic title to reflect each time you update your story with a new chapter, ex: Disappearing friends of my Sister (New Chapter: Part 2!)
When you post part 3, you just go back and edit the title of your first post to "Disappearing friends of my Sister (New Chapter: Part 3!)
Each time you post a new chapter, your story thread will jump up to the top of the "Active Topics" list.
Spend some time to look around the board and more specifically at the other story threads.
It'll give you a good idea of how most authors go about it on here.
Looking forward to chapter 3 btw!
