My second - finished - story, a darker one. Something that needed to be written out before returning to something with a bit happier overtone. Like my first story also this on is a part of process to learn to write. With foreign language. As you may notice while you read it probably will be a very long process (This foreword is and remains unedited).
The story is shorter and everything happens during a time period of a few months - much less than a year. One again I first had a few acts in my mind and the story started folding around them. The story will be published at the pace my editor can handle my errors. So probably it takes some time.
It is most probably totally unnecessary to mention but part of the story is told in flashbacks - in italics.
Finally the disclaimer: If there is something good in the story it probably is stolen, borrowed, hijacked or edited to look good. And if you do not recognize the original you just have not read it yet. Just like this disclaimer was copied from my first story. And the greatest thanks belong to my editor without whom this story would not be half as good as it is now - the remaining errors are all mine.
