This is the last chapter, but not the last bit of writing. An epilogue, while probably not necessary, completes the characters for me. That particular piece of writing needs tweaking some more. My goal is Saturday.
I will be the first to say that this chapter needs more, begs for more depth. Yet, the way I write forces me to post it now or else I will read the chapter and dream the chapter and change the chapter and dream, creating an endless loop. You, the few who read, manage to shove me out of my loop into real slashing action. I need your critique if you have the time.
