Author’s Note: There’s really no excuse for the break between chapters. I can finally write and upload on the same computer, which I thought would make me more excited to update this, but it had the complete opposite effect for some reason. And I thought this was going to be such an easy chapter to write. Truth be told, I don’t like it all that much, but this is the part of the story I really wanted to get to in the first place, so I’m glad to finally have it finished.
I got a few reviews that mentioned how out of character Blonda was in the last chapter. I said it to one of you, and now I’m going to say it to all of you here; that was completely intentional and it will be justified in a later chapter, I promise. Actually, I think I pretty much ended that in this chapter.
