"The Arrangement," finished.

Chapter 15 and the Epilogue for "The Arrangement" have been submitted to SOL, and they should be available shortly. I found myself with some extra free time this week, so I was able to get this story completed. I love this story, my favorite thing that I've ever written, and I'm really proud of it. It's also incredibly arousing, because "Riley" is based on a real person. And although I only had a couple of conversations with her, they were deep conversations, somewhat sexual in nature, and I'll never forget her. This story helps keep my memory of "Riley" vibrant, and it's the most personal thing I've written.

Thanks to all for reading, and voting. Those of you asking about a conclusion to "Peanut Butter Babysitter" -- I have some ideas, and might be able to finish it up within 2-3 months. For now, though, I need a little bit of a break -- "Arrangement" finishes up at nearly 120,000 words!
