AUTHOR'S DISCLAIMER: Due to my work schedule, I will NOT be posting on this everyday, as has been my previous pattern. I will endeavor to post new chapters as fast as I can write them AND get to the library, which currently is my only online access. So, anyone who does follow this, please bear with me and be patient! I have the whole thing writ in my head...it's just a matter of available time to write it out and get it here. Inspired in part by "Half of the Stairs Are Missing."
