Thanks Lora's Pa.
I kind of wanted to but, unfortunately, I came upon my somewhat self-imposed ~8,000 word limit too soon. I had originally started the story for the Fall Story Contest but, as contests have a 6,000 word limit, I couldn't widdle it down enough to qualify. I had intended to hold back on the antidote until at least the next day but I was too wordy at the beginning...one of my writing quirks.
Thanks again for the compliment buddy. Mistress Laura my return someday in a multi-part story should Paul forget his previous lesson, or maybe, one of her own new slaves.
