Wow! That took way longer than I’d expected. My editor’s still out of commission, but I really didn’t want to wait any longer. You guys are gonna stop reading this story (if you haven’t already).
Please excuse any mistakes. I hope that there aren’t that many, but I’m sure there are a few.
I like this chapter — it’s got info about Sensei in it, which people were asking for. Plus a party. Everyone likes a party, right?
Again, I’m sorry it’s taken so long to get this out. I haven’t been writing as much as I’d like, because life is still a huge ball of stress — the one thing that my doctor told me to avoid. Well, stress, cholesterol and fat. I can thank the company that I work for, for that. Naturally, I can’t name them (First Amendment doesn’t count when they can afford better lawyers than I can), but I’m hoping that I’ll find a job before they dump a bunch of us on the street.
Anyway, please enjoy, and I promise I’ll get the next one out sooner than three months!
