Every house is linked with one another, an interconnected spider's web of homes in a city that soon grows the whole length of the river.
Not only is it very vivid, but it is very telling about the created culture. There's a strong sense of kinship among what we would consider total strangers
It's close-knitted, cozy, safe.
You say the "mayor" (lol) is a he, but the person who got everyone to quit was a she. Why didn't the woman take over? Who is this man?
If it helps, I normally only know the ending and the beginning of my story when I decide to write. Sometimes I just know the protagonist's personality and the beginning line. And throughout my interactions with fellow writers, I can tell you there are very few authors who actually know what they're doing when they write a piece. So do yourself a favor and change your message to the readers from a disclaimer. Disclaimers discourage people from reading your work. If you don't think it's great, why will others?
Overall, I really liked the story you were telling. Yes, there were some spelling and grammar errors but those can easily be fixed. Nice job!
