Please follow this link to get to the most recent version of chapter 1 and 2!
Also, here is a link to the downloadable ebook which I will keep updating as I edit/add chapters. There are no ads or links or anything else in it other than the story itself and it can be opened with any standard reader (I use mobipocket):
#1: No longer dragging out the details about those news (thx to josh.townley)#2: Completely reworked all three chapters into 2 (see link above)
#3: removed old versions because lots of people just read them instead of the new, completely ignoring my really large hint on top
-- old version removed, please see link on top for new version --
