I will be re-posting a number of chapters that I have received corrections and some suggestions for clarifications and rewording to make things clearer. Tonight I re-poster chapter 10, and 11. There are a number of others that I am still working on and will re-post as time permits.
I have reedited Celia with the help of my most recently acquired fourth Editor 'The Libertarian'. My thanks to him for all of the work he put into the reedit.
I hope that you enjoy the story as it has been updated with the character list now incorporated into the chapters, and spelling, and punctuation corrections.
With the help on my newest Editor, 'The Libertarian', I have gone over and corrected and updated 'Kristen'. Of all of my stories, this is the one that I love the best, and have reread many times. I hope that you will enjoy it as much as I have.
The concluding chapters of Magic Ink IV have been sent to the Moderators for posting.
These final chapters open with the Eternal Flame appearing near the stage of the auditorium. After confirming Ken and Kell's stories, he has a private message and instructions for them and their twins. Three of the gold coins from the treasure are left on the stage.
The next morning priorities are set for what they need to do. The following day they go shopping to buy clothes, food, and wedding ring sets.
On Saturday, Ken and Kell go to the Otherworld to arrange for their wedding in two weeks. Later their Moms take the girls shopping for wedding dresses.
On 31 July they leave for the Otherworld to be married. There are problems when they arrive, but they are handled by Etain. The following day their families arrive and there are more questions. There is shock when the family learns that the Mac Sweeney Sisters intend to take the Master's examination.
There is much celebrating after they are married at Sundown on the second of August. The newlyweds remain in the Otherworld an additional two weeks. Before departing, the Mac Sweeney Sisters amaze everyone by passing the test for Master Rank.
It isn't until the 17th of August that Ken and Kell announce that they and their Wives are leaving for the Third Reality to help their Brothers, Sisters, and Cousins. The story ends with their departure.
In the Epilogue, Kell, on his 33rd birthday, looks back at some of the things that have occurred in the intervening years.
It has been an adventure writing this story. The characters always surprised me with what they came up with while following my general outline. I hope that you have enjoyed reading it as much as I have writing it.
I am currently working on Magic Ink V. It requires a substantial amount of research, and while I am only on chapter 4, I already have done much research. It will be some time before the story appears. I am also continuing to work on Amulets of Power V and have 5 chapters written on it from last summer. It too will require extensive research. The stories will appear when they are far enough along to be sure that they can be posted without any interruptions. I ask your forbearance until they appear.
The new chapters have been sent to the Moderators to be posted.
This week's chapters open with everyone transferring to Kess-Corran to close all of the entrances and exits from the Otherworld in that Reality. They return to Dyster O'Dea for a few days following that. They all return to their castles after that, as there is much to do there before they leave.
On the 28th, the Eternal Flame transfers them from the Other Reality to their Realm and Reality where it is only the 15th of July. On reaching their Parent's houses there are many questions to be answered and a few revelations.
Following the ladies departure to see the houses, their Fathers bring up the problem of the fields to their Sons. There is work to be done on the tractors before they can start on the fields. Later in the kitchen there is much surprise when the cold room spell is revealed.
The guys and their twins checkout the houses that they will be using temporarily. The women are interested in seeing the bathrooms. Following dinner at Ken's Parent's, the subject of the girl's education and their being tested is brought up. Things are partly explained.
Later in their house, Ken rubs soap into the twins skin for a while in the shower before they go to bed, and eventually to sleep. After breakfast the next morning, they start work on the fields.
Following the clan dinner that night in the auditorium, Ken and Kell introduce their twins and tell the story of their travels in the Other Reality in Ireland. Just as they are finishing, the Eternal Flame appears in the auditorium.
Enjoy these two chapters. The final chapters will appear next week.
