AN ~ To be honest this is more like HALF of page one, so the rest should be
coming tomorrow, or ... whenever. The reason I split it up is:
a) I'm too lazy to carry on writing
b) You'll see at the end
So I'll write some more today & tomorrow and it should be up tomorrow.
Ingrid slowly tucked the piece of black, coarse hair that was blowing around her face

alas there was no escaping today. Today was the day her father had been training her
for, well before his 'accident'.
"Well, go on child" the Devil nudged her impatiently, no one escaped or kept the
