Story Notes:

I'm having a little bit of writer's block with Forever (I know where it's going, just having a little time with transitioning to get there). In the meantime, this story has been running around in my mind for months, so I figured why not write it all down. While the general story line has been done before, I think this one is different enough to make it interesting.

Wow!  A felix award?! Really?!  Well, no, not really, it's a runner-up award, but I couldn't imagine being any more excited if I'd actually won!  There's so much talent on this site, and just to be included is awesome!  Thanks so much!

Ya'll need to know that I am so overwhelmed by the response this story has gotten! A huge thank you to everyone who voted for it in the Double Rainbow Awards!

Something really strange happened with this chapter and the link somehow got broken. I had to delete and re-upload the chapter. If you've read chapter 8 but got a blank page on chapter 7, read this. It will fill in some blanks. Unfortunately, it also deleted the reviews for this chapter :(

I apologize profusely to those of you were waiting for a new chapter. Somehow, the link to chapter 7 got broken, and it was showing just a blank page. I had to delete and re-upload it, so if you got a blank page for chapter 7, please go back and read it. It fills in some blanks. It was a big chapter for the development of the story.

Two chapters in one day! I was hoping to build the suspense, but I already had this one written, and couldn't resist going ahead an posting it. Please let me know what you think.

Wow!  I can't believe that the last chapter pushed me over 100 reviews!  You guys are awesome, and thanks so much for reading and taking an interest in my little story.  I know exactly where it's going from here, but don't have any more written yet, so bear with me as I work on it.  I'm toying with the idea of a sequel, but also think that where I'm planning to end it is a pretty good place to do so.  Maybe ten or so more chapters.  Keep reviewing, and thanks again!

This one is super short compared to the last one, but I think it best stands alone.

I took a little creative liberty with this chapter. I just thought that the "morning after" emotions would be conveyed so much better in first person!

Once upon a time, about twenty chapters ago, I said that there were oh, about ten chapters left in this story. It didn't quite happen that way, but now I can safely say that there are only two chapters left...and maybe an epilogue.

55. Chapter 55 by emily_michele [ - ] (3477 words)

This is the last chapter (sans very small epilogue), and I'm so sad to see this one end. I am overwhelmed by the response to this story, and can't wait to see what you think of the ending. Thank you so so much for reading!
