Ch 1 has been reposted, ch 2 added and ch 3 is on its way for proofing.
I have made a public Universe called 'Changes'. It is meant to deal with what and how even a single person can make something happen. There are no restrictions that it be a town or village or that the character even be human.
By the way, the use of Mollie, then Julie for the Mother's name is not an error. More concerning the 2 names will appear in Ch's 4 - 8.
