This is a story I will try and add a little to as often as I can. Unlike my first Movella, this is for older readers - please leave me feedback on how to improve!

Thank you for reading so far! I will hopefully be updating soon, but until then, I would appreciate feedback to help me improve, and if you have any questions about this story, feel free to ask away!
