Author’s note: I’ll not even try to make this a stand-alone story, but if we must ... Bill Simon is a middle-aged divorcee. He buys a house and meets his next door neighbors, including a twelve-year-old daughter, Haley. That story plays out in “Neighbors”, here on this site under my name. At the end of Neighbors, Haley’s fourteen and Bill’s unusual young mate. The story progresses into “Bill ‘n’ Haley” where, two years later when Haley’s sixteen, they marry. There’s a development, though, because Bill’s daughter by his first wife wants to move in. Haley thinks it’s a good idea. Two smart girls get mixed up with some others from the ‘Smart Girls’ community and end up in college. Curiosity about genetics reveals that Deena, Bill’s ‘daughter’, is in fact NOT his, and that the lost man who fathered Deena had two years previously fathered Haley. Deena and Haley conspire to become a mated trio. And that’s where we are today.
