Credits: I would like to acknowledge my fabulous beta fems—I am very grateful that we started conversing and say a big, HUGE thank-you. Fems, I have this to say especially in regards to chapters fourteen and twenty-nine: Ask and it will be given to you, Luke 11:9.

I am dedicating this story to "SJ Shipper Forever"—whoever you may be, and where ever you are—because without your challenge this would not have been written.
