A/N: This is just a note to let you all know that The Pact was chosen as one of seven finalists in the Poppin' Cherries contest. Thank you to everyone who encouraged me to write a story, but especially to Miss Construed for keeping on me, holding my hand through it all, and being a kick ass beta.

I am completely in awe and humbled by this, especially since this was the first piece of fiction I've ever written.

Congratulations and good luck to all the other finalists!

Please go to the Poppin' Cherries site and read and review all of the awesome stories. Then go vote for your two favorites. You have until Friday, Jan. 1st at 11:59 PM PST.
