I just thought I'd let you all know that after taking advice from a few readers who messaged me (and I welcome messages from all readers, your feedback drives future stories) I've decided to continue the story.
It started out as a story I'd been thinking about for a long time - what would happened if a girl was kidnapped and preferred life with the kidnapper to the hell that is her life at home. This girl had to enjoy the new life for good reasons, not in a Stockholm Syndrome kind of way.
So that is the story I wrote, but the ending obviously intrigued some people, so I've granted their wish and continued the story.
It's now the longest single story I've ever written, and it's still not finished.
I hope to have it finished and proof read ready for posting by the new year, but timescales have slipped in the past, so I offer to promises.
Keep well readers, it's cold outside...
