Apparently I’ve lost the ability to tell what day of the week it is, resulting in my failing to post this chapter title page on Friday.
It’s up now, anyway, and Chapter 5 will commence Monday as it should. The last chapter may have been a bit of a downer, but in this one things get rather steamy—it’s the most “mature” chapter in the story. In an effort to keep the web version a bit more PG-13 and almost-SFW (I suppose it depends on where you work…), this chapter (and only this chapter) has just a little bit edited out.
The story and all dialogue is intact; it’s just a little less racy.
