So after three or so years New Friends is over - well maybe not completely over. It's funny, from the first time I put my fingers to the keyboard it was always going to be Stella. I guess though, when I started writing Pepper and Hunter as a couple they worked so well I wasn't sure myself.
One of the main reasons I didn't end it sooner was I really didn't know how to do it. The only way it happened, was I read back over some of New Friends (the first one) and I remembered pretty quickly why I loved Stella so much. So there we have it, a few people would have read the sort of open ending that was up for all of a day before I decided against it.
For those Pepper and Keira fans I wouldn't worry too much. All four of them are pretty liberal with their views on sharing and caring, and certainly Stella would like having Keira around almost as much as Hunter. But Hunter, like me, is a romantic at heart. Plus Stella is hot.
Also if anyone wants to do a quick edit job on the last few chapters (they probably need it) drop me an email.
Hope you liked the story and the ending. See you all round.
