This story cannot be read in five minutes. If you are not interested in the development of characters and their situations, then, probably, this story is not for you. If you dislike long stories that build to a crescendo--rather than start with one--then this story is not for you. If you have read any of my other stories and didn't enjoy them, then this story is not for you. However, if you find stories much more interesting when you know and understand the characters, this may be enjoyable for you. If you have read and appreciated my other work and relish stories to which you can relate, then please read on and enjoy.
