Author's Note: NOT A CHAPTER

I deeply apologize for the VERY long time it has been since chapter 41 went up. I was almost done writing chapter 42, which was going to be quite long, when my hard drive crashed and I lost everything on my laptop. Including the chapter.

Again, I am very sorry it has been so long. I just moved into an apartment, so please, give me some time to get settled, find a job, and then start re-writing the chapter. I hope to have the chapter up before Christmas. I am sorry I cannot offer it sooner.

This is just to let people know that I am not dead, and I have not (and will not) abandon the story. As I said, I hope to have chapter 42 up by Christmas.

Sincerely with Love,

Your Disgruntled Author,

Arathin.
