I was recently asked to post this story here on SOL. Honestly I thought I had already posted it here, and then I went and checked. Not sure how this story of mine was missed back in 2004 when first posted at 'other' places online. But here it is as originally written. There will be ten chapters and these are original, not edited so it may be a rough road ahead for you readers of my efforts. Hopefully you will forgive me.
