I have to say I'm nervous about sharing this one. So far my blog readers have been very perceptive about where the story is heading, and I sincerely hope that will continue. I also hope that after the chapter goes live on the EMCSA, if readers on the forums are less perceptive, one or more of you will take the time to respond to them on there.
I'll say no more for the moment. I hope I won't have to.
Here you go.
