Author's Note

Hi, readers,

First things first – this is not a chapter. It's a note to explain why I've not posted in so long.

When I started writing this story, I loved it and I loved writing again. But, after a few days I started to receive some very abusive reviews, the worst of which have been deleted. It seems that people are not OK with the concept of a story about cheating… even when they don't know the context.

The fact that people have been calling me a slut, and slut-shaming my characters, made me stop writing. Waking up to messages from people you've never met that say things like that is fucking horrible, and I won't tolerate it.

However, in the past few days I've also received some very lovely, kind reviews and PMs asking me to continue, and it's made me rethink.

I love this story. Many of you love this story. And so, when life next gives me a chance, I'll write on.

In the meantime, though, I would like to make it very clear that I will write exactly what I like in this story, and that if extra-marital affairs offend you, you should probably click the little "x" in the corner and be done with it.

I will not condone slut-shaming. I will not condone people saying things like that about me or my characters.

And rest assured, if it happens again, I'll be reporting those who act that way.

Thanks for sticking by me. I'll write soon. xx
