Thanks to Emergency! Universe for bringing out the best in my writing, and thanks to all of you who waited so... or not so... patiently for the conclusion of this story. Hopefully, it was worth the wait.
I have put Johnny through so much pain and angst these past few months, that I think I will close the lid on my laptop, and give the poor boy a much needed break. Maybe I’ll just take him home with me, and nurse him back to health :) ... let him dream about Christmas in the Rockies. ... Hmmm... wonder what kind of fun... and trouble... could be in store for him??? Well, maybe I’ll just turn the computer off, but not close the lid.
As always, it wasn't me/us! All the talent belongs to NanM. We just made some judicious comments where needed.... And, helped to fuel the fire.... Those IMings in the middle of the night of "be the bed! Feel Johnny on top of you!" I think did the trick *VBEG*
And, don't worry dear readers.... There's Much more in Johnny's future!
