Wow! I am so sorry for the delay. Between work and mental health issues there was no way I was up to anything. However, don’t fret, I have no intention of abandoning this fic. We finally got some more help at work. Just to put it in perspective they hired three people that we were short. There were three of us doing the work of six. Of course we promptly had one of the new people quit when they realized the job entailed actual work. However, it is still a major improvement because now I get two days off most weeks instead of having only one day off a week since March.
Anyhow, none of you came for my rant/excuses/work madness, so without further ado I am posting the next chapter.
