Thanks to everyone so far for making this one of my highest rated stories! I've gotten some very positive responses so far and am really glad that people are liking it. It also have been gratifying to see the continued bump in readership that the original story is still getting.
I wanted to take the opportunity to respond to an an anonymous reader who had a question about the Josh and his mom's TLC session in Chapter 4.
There was no scene between Josh and his Mom in Chapter 3, but the whole thing with them (and with Beth participating) started in Chapter 2. As far as dear old Dad being out of the picture (or Josh going any further with Mom), don't count on it. I've updated all of the story tags that will be used in the rest of the story.
