First published online at fictionpress.com in 2004, this story is a constant work in progress as I put it away for several years at a time and read through it again only to see the holes in the story and fix them. The reason this process takes forever is because of the long waits inbetween readings. I'm too close to this story to see it clearly without waiting for long intervals to read it once again. As the story expands through one rewrite after another, there is always another copyright to add, because the content has changed yet again. Each rewrite expands the story and goes into greater detail about the lives of the characters. Enjoy the story as it was mean to be enjoyed.
