I just wanted to say that a war time story with a horror code will probably not have a Disney story-line or ending. I got an email from a very disgruntled reader who was mad the story was not light and fluffy with a happy ending. Bad things happen sometimes, sorry. Although compared to the next new story I'm going to post, Targets of Opportunity, Enemy Within IS positively light and fluffy. Although ToO has a slightly happier ending. When life is grim, your stories take a darker turn. I remember the lead singer of Metallica commenting it was hard to write gritty, angry songs while sitting beside the pool outside his mansion watching his happy family swimming. The reverse is true as well. I tweaked the codes and teaser to make the story seem darker.
