Sorry I could not manage to get Chapter 6 up a day earlier. I inadvertently added two new scenes, and had to obsess over them completely before I unleashed them on you.
I would like to publish each chapter individually, but this site only lets me publish 10 pages. So, my advice would be to scroll down to the end and then up from there.
I should warn you that you are in for a bumpy ride in Chapter 6. It is high time a villain came and twisted his mustache, don't you think?? :0)
Don't panic. No one dies. Just some emotional trauma.
I hope that you enjoy it. Let me know what you think.
