    Thanks Vathek. Read the next one in the series. This is an ongoing story and this is part (drabble) 171. #172 shows the note. If you want to read the whole story, you can do so by clicking the Fedelta #171 link and then all the drabbles, in number order, appear on your screen. Then what you need to do is to scroll down to the bottom and go to the first drabbles in the series. Thanks for reading this one though.

    A brilliant introduction of horror there, Neville. With everything that's happened in respect of character interaction and manipulation, this is perfectly times (and perfectly written).
