Well, faithful readers, this story has come to an end. I confess, I will miss Valerie, so I'm not closing the book cover on her completely.

Thank you for being patient with me while I worked through writer's block and took a hell of a long time to post this story.

Here is the link to the last chapter: The Epilogue.

If you want to read the story from the beginning, click here. Just keep clicking on "Newer Post" at the bottom of each chapter to progress through.

B, this is for you!

Please, don't post this work anywhere, but do feel free to share the link with a friend, and leave a comment or send me an e-mail and let me know what you think.

Also, if you have other ideas for future "Encounters", please, drop me a line!
