Because of a mistake in how chapter 1 posted, which was bugging me, and the issue of the "collage" where I meant "college", I went through the whole story again, most of which you've not seen. I've redone a bit of it, from start to finish. So, when Part I, which is chapters 1 through 3, gets posted (hopefully soon), you may want to start at the beginning, though it is not necessary.
Part 2, chapters 4 through 6 should post next Friday (the 15th). I have to work on the final chapter before I send in part 3, chapters 7 through 9.
Thank you for your patience, your readership, and your feedback.
