So, this weekend has been very busy. I’ve done some work and some research. I’m currently looking at articles and books for a re-revision. That might not technically be a word, but I’m using it.

He rolled to a stop at the feet of a group of five ladies. The stepped back as if afraid he’d get something on the dresses they wore.
“I didn’t.” The idiot rose to his feet and stumbled sideways before he braced his feet wide on the polished wooden floor. “You will give her back or I’ll tear you apart.”
“Don’t you realize yet? You aren’t the top of the food chain. Not even near it.”
