The inevitable…

…real life strikes. I was very determined to finish the Flash Fic challenge with the end of a story this week, but then due to a sick colleague one six-day workweek turned into two, turned into probably three and I haven’t even had the chance to read all the wonderful stories offered for continuation, much less work on any.
But I will finish the Challenge in my own time (it’s not a contest after all) because I feel this story deserves a (temporary) end. Cross your fingers for me this weekend.
