Dear Reader, I again will be presenting, for your diversion, an extended story from my fevered brain. The form is a mystery romance. It will develop slowly and carry the Reader (I hope) on an entertaining and mostly pleasant adventure. It is mostly not concentrated on sex and torture. However, in keeping with this forum's name and my own twisted, prurient interests, there will be some Bondage, Discipline, and Sado-Masochism. But it will be far from wall-to-wall coverage. There will be a little consensual sex, but not described in pornographic detail.

I'm so looking forward to a relaxing vacation, amid the heather.
