@r3dl1k3r0s3s I’m very glad to hear that you are enjoying the story. Chapters 5 is “complete” but there are a few passages that I’m simply not satisfied with. Maybe I can take another crack at them over the weekend. Thank you for commenting.
@pseudoclever Hmmmm… I was almost wondering if you had been peeking in my windows… 🙂 Thank you. A delightful read. Actually this is one of the few stories that I’ve even bothered to read in months. You pushed a number of my buttons and I love the idea of the magical contract. It’s a wonderful mechanism, with a world of potential.
