This is another one that's a tad on the short side- and it may be a little disjointed as it was written in little chunks here and there due to the real world getting in the way. Some day I'll get round to reading over these parts and prettying them up a little.
I was going to write some more but the story's about to take a slightly different direction so I thought it was best to cut it off here rather than have it spill over any more. Think of this chapter as the end of part one of the story. If it goes according to plan that is- this story has a habit of taking me places I hadn't intended on going to!
