My children are coming for a visit, and my muse got all excited. She drove me to finish Chapter 4 and get it out there.
So, here it is.
This finishes this version as a horror story. You'll see the codes have been added to. Although our hero was oblivious, my readers were intended to pick up on the big secret. ;)
For the follow-on romantic (sort of) version, see "A Halloween Redemption."
Thanks for reading.
