Whew - this last chapter was tougher going than I anticipated. Ended up adding some more scenes and doing a lot of revising. It was hard to try to work in all those flashbacks gracefully but I needed to sum up some of the action or I'd never get this thing done. Cas sent me a friendly reminder on Sunday that I'd promised to get it out this weekend. [Guilty look] So, anyway, Cas, here ya go. It's back to NC-17. Yippy. Hope you all enjoy. I think I've got one more chapter - which I hope to get finished this week. No promises this time.
