Chapter 88 - Upper Hand

Author's Note


I don't expect people to like this chapter, and I think I'll lose readers over it. But, it was the best I could do without any feedback. This is a classic case of painting yourself into a corner and not leaving a great way out. If you already read the first book then this type of scene will be familiar to you and for some reason you're still patiently reading. But I imagine it is *not* what you were hoping for. Keep reading though! After this it's pretty much easy to follow and hopefully you'll find it rewarding. I expect to be done posting this story on New Year's day 2022 or the day after. Thank you again, for reading this.
