NOOOOO! I had a whole reply written and the board ATE it! Ugh, here we go again, then.
I am so glad you guys are still interested in this story! I am glad to be back here with you guys, too! The past year has been crazy with health issues and family issues, but things are better lately and I'm looking forward to picking up where I left off. Thanks SO much for reading and reviewing.
Just fair warning, the next couple/few chapters are going to be a little rough as people learn about their losses and face the consequences, but it won't be endless misery. There are some bright spots on the horizon. Getting back into this story has been interesting. I've made some pretty significant alterations to the outline, but I think they will be for the best.
Thanks again for reading and commenting. You guys are the best. *hugs*
