So, it's been 1,945 days since I updated this story. Five years, three months, and twenty-seven days. I want to apologize for that gap. The chapter isn't very long either.
I think it's been mentioned here and there, but a little over a year after I posted chapter 6, my husband passed away. I'd spent most of that year in and out of the hospital and nursing home with him. The ~ 18 months after that, for obvious reasons, I wasn't in the most stable of mindsets.
However, there is happiness to be had! I, eventually, righted myself and my high school sweetheart contacted me out of the blue. I'm happy to say I wound up moving nearly a thousand miles to where he had moved to and our daughter, who just had her first birthday in June, is currently snoring in my lap. That was an awkward sentence. To sum up: widowed, shut down mentally, woke up, high school sweetheart!, moved!, baby!
This isn't beta'd and quite honestly, probably barely edited. I'm writing it to jump-start my writing and
I thought this community could use a jolt
. ETA: Apparently I haven't been seeing the fic posted lately! Off to read!
Who knows, I might write some Paramour smut next :P
Just to refresh you (and for the love of all that is holy please gloss over my horrific errors and awkward dialog from back then. Hopefully I can edit it all soon. Oh, who am I kidding, ignore it in this chapter too!) here is the rest of the story:
PS - It's not edited, I'm hitting post before I lose my nerve!
PPS/New edit - This evening I have attempted to edit chapters 1-3, so if there are any glaring errors or yuck there, please let me know. I may post this on A03 soon.
