Summary: Ok, so I really really want to apologize to everyone that has read this and wanted more. I just... I got to a point of writer's block, big time... and I got lazy. I'm really really sorry about that. And, I wish I could add to this, but I just... I don't really have other ideas. I'm terrible at writing chapter work. I can never seem to finish it. So, I know it left off awkwardly, but odds are, it's gonna stay that way, at least for a very long while. I'm very sorry. And, heads up, I completely beyond appreciate everyone that has read and reviewed this. I saw the read count being over 22,000 today, and I was just like WOW. I never ever imagined that would happen!!! Anyways, this is pretty much the end of the story indefinitely, at least for now.
