Sorry it's a short one...

6. Chapter 6 Nightfall by SkyBel [ - ] starstarstarstarhalf-star (3164 words)

7. Chapter 7 The Wrath of Vengeance by SkyBel [ - ] starstarstarstarstar (2877 words)
To all my lovely reader's who have taken the time to review - I love you!  Sorry this chapter has taken me a few days to post, but bare with me, I still have plenty of action and angst to come....

8. Chapter 8 The Spying Game by SkyBel [ - ] starstarstarstarstar (1989 words)

To all the kman lovers out there (especially you nikki) I hope I smarmed him up enough for ya!  That man makes me hot...but I know I can't share him with ya babe!

To everyone else, just a short little chapter to keep you interested before we get down and dirty with some torture and mayhem....Mwahahahaha.  Thanks for the review, especially for those who came out of the woodwork and let me know they were interested.  It's peeps like you who keep me going....what am I saying, it's the idea of all the hot PB guys as vamps that makes me do it....but still, reviews are like chocolate and I love my chocolate.

9. Chapter 9 The Long Night by SkyBel [ - ] starstarstarstarstar (3729 words)

Firstly I'd like to thank all those who have been reading my fic and have left me some fantastic reviews.  They are a balm to my soul.  Well, I did say they were like chocolate.

I would take the time to write something nice and witty, but its 2am where I am and I wanted to get this chapter up without any further delays.  My kids were sick, then my hubby, then me, then it was my hubby's bithday....how dare real life intrude on our PB addiction, right?

Lastly I'd like to dedicate this chapter to my good friend Jen (pbswimmer), who loves a badass Michael.  I hope he's badass enough for you in this chapter Jen!

10. Chapter 10 Boulevard of Broken Dreams by SkyBel [ - ] starstarstarstarstar (2045 words)

OK guys, this is just a quick chapter as a set up to more violence and mayhem...so bare with me.  Mind you, I wrote this whole chapter with a sticking 'h' key, so everytime you see an 'h' used, yes I cursed profoundly!!!

Thanks again to all those you reviewed, you know who you are!  You're all my new best friends.  I may just have to start sending you all cookies, although, be warned, the cookies are known to turn peeps to the dark side....that's how I got here.  Thanks nikki (my cookie providing evil puppet master).


Cheers, and happy reading!

11. Chapter 11 Stand Off by SkyBel [ - ] starstarstarstarstar (3738 words)

Ok guy's my problem with 'h' is now fixed (can you believe it was a hundred and thousand?  That's the last time I let one of the kids near the keyboard!) so 'h' is now my friend again!

I hope you guys all appreciate the effort it took me to write this chapter, I mean, I literally put down HP so that I could get vamp mike out of my head.  Now that that's done, I'll have to go back to the young man with the wand....unless vamp mike becomes insistant again!

Oh, and I had to share this story....my 4yo daughter saw my background piccy of WM and asked me who it was.  When I informed her it was my boyfriend, she screwed up her face and told me 'I don't like him!'.  Boy, did my hubby laugh!!!  *sighs, they just don't get it do they?*

Once again I dedicate this chapter to my good friend Jen (who writes a fantastic little AU fic called 'Against the Tide' as pbswimmer) because she loves my badass mike.  And who can blame her, really?

12. Chapter 12 The Beginning by SkyBel [ - ] starstarstarstarstar (2733 words)

Ok, so not much action in this chapter, but we get to see a little bit of the brother's growing up.  Hope you enjoy!

 Sorry, I'm not very talkative tonight, but I figured you'd prefer me to just get the next post up, right?

13. Chapter 13 Aftermath by SkyBel [ - ] starstarstarstarstar (3094 words)

Sorry it took me a while to finish this chapter, I got stuck with a slight case of writers block even though I pretty much knew what I wanted to write.  Ah well, at least it's done.  That and I got totally distracted because mikoki finally updated 'waiting for absolution' and I can't function knowing there's a chapter of her's to read.

This chapter is more of a filler/set-up one, so not much action but I hope it's enjoyable all the same.

14. Chapter 14 Rest and Recovery by SkyBel [ - ] starstarstarstarstar (5042 words)

Hi all, sorry it's taken me a while to get this chapter up, but a very good friend of mine came very close to death this week and I spent a bit of time at her bedside and was not really able to concentrate on what I wanted to write.

Hopefully despite my lack of concentration I have managed to do a credible job, but I'll need those reviews to be sure!

I'm dedicating this chapter to Jen once again, because she's been pestering me for some MiSa action and guess what - there's a mention of some *gasp* hand-porn!  Yes, that's right folks, I have stepped up the pace and initiated the hand-porn.  Who knows where that type of sexual tension could lead....hmmmm.

15. Chapter 15 Playing to Win by SkyBel [ - ] starstarstarstarhalf-star (2608 words)

Sorry this one took so long (probably even longer with the waiting time it now seems to take this site to validate and post) but I had a major case of writer's block *grumbles*.

I feel like this chapter is short and incomplete, but it was all I could come up with given the dreaded WB and it includes bits that needed to be put out there.

Hopefully now that I'm onto the next chapter things will go easier...

Remember, chocolate means faster writing!

16. Chapter 16 The Burden of Guilt by SkyBel [ - ] starstarstarstarstar (4416 words)

Yay, another chapter down!  Woo Hoo!  Thanks for all those who reviewed the last one and left such kind comment, because I wasn't feeling good about it and you all bucked up my courage again!

This next chapter takes us back in time again, this time from Michael's POV and while I originally wasn't planning on putting it here, I really felt like it was the right time for it.  So there!

Been having a good week.  My oldest daughter just turned 4 (OMG I have a 4 yo!) and in between organising a party and presents, I churned this out for you all.  Phew, chocolate would be nice just about now.  Hee Hee.

17. Chapter 17 A Lesson in Combat by SkyBel [ - ] starstarstarstarstar (5875 words)

Hey everybody...this chapter took me a lot longer to write than I expected, sorry!  I've had some problems with constant headaches (and no, I don't mean the hubby or kids!) and It's really irritating because they have prevented me from writing.

I also promised some misa VHP in this chapter, but alas I have to admit that I lied!  I'm sorry, but the chapter  became so long, that I cut it and the VHP is coming up in the next chapter - I promise!  *whispers* I'm even adding a little bit more than the VHP, so...

Anyhoo, here's the chapter, and I'm sorry to anyone who finds martial arts boring, because there is a fair bit of it in this one.  Actually, I'm not sorry at all!

18. Chapter 18 Lies and Deception by SkyBel [ - ] starstarstarstarstar (5142 words)

Hey there happy readers....VHP is here!!!! YAY!  And guess what, there's even more!  But I won't spoil it for you, you'll just have to read to find out what happens, hee hee.

Just don't hate me at the end, k?  Mwaha ha ha hahahaaaaaaaaa!

19. Chapter 19 The Price of Freedom Part I by SkyBel [ - ] starstarstarstarstar (4215 words)

I have an excuse for not updating sooner, I promise!

I have been sick, spent a day in hospital, been on a very strong painkiller which sent me loopy (well, loopier than normal) and made me sleepy.  I found it very hard to concentrate.  While the pain is getting better, my problem is still there and not yet solved by the medical profession. :(  Hopefully it won't have been anything too serious and I can get back to writing, because frankly, that's all I live for...that and reading WFA by mikoki, SATT by pbswimmer and PL by ncoop.  What else is there, hmmm?!  Kids, family you say?  Huh!

Well, maybe I can begrudge then some time...in between chapters!  Hee Hee.

Hope you enjoy this chapter...it is part one of a two parter and hopefully I'll get the next one out quicker.

Happy reading!

20. Chapter 20 The Price of Freedom Part II by SkyBel [ - ] starstarstarstarstar (10550 words)

Well, I'm not going to apologise for taking too long on this one, because it was so long and hard to write and I had to translate English into French.  But mostly because I have been very sick.

It turns out I have had Shingles.  Shingles!  Who gets Shingles these days?  I'll tell you - ME!  So the nerve pain is just tremendous, then the rash is so painful and itchy...and I thought I was doing better when what happens, I get a second bout of it.  A SECOND BOUT!  Who gets Shingles twice, straight after the first one?  I'll tell you - ME!  Argh!  I think I need a full body transplant....Hee hee.

Anyhoo, enough ranting...this is another backstory chapter, but there was so much to write that it still isn't finished.  There will be a third part to this time period in the backstory...and since my friend nikki started badgering me to know what was happening with Paul and Linc, I'm going to see if I can come up with anything for them before tackling the third part.  If I can't, well then the third part will be next.

Enjoy reading, and I soooo need chocolate now!

21. Chapter 21 Paying the Price in Full by SkyBel [ - ] starstarstarstarstar (6212 words)

*pokes head cautiously into site and checks to see if there are any fans left* 

Do I have any excuses my friends for taking so long to update?  Well, I have some, but will they be sufficient to appease the masses?  Maybe, but seeing as how I hate loathe it when fic's I am reading take forever to be updated. we'll have to see:

1) I developed a severe case of that dreaded writers block

2) Whilst awaiting the return of my muse, Prison Break premiered, proving to be a distraction

3) Kids, hubby and I got sick (again)

4) Started writing a drabble to coax muse into returning but then SARAGATE happened :/

5) Severe grieving, denial, anger, denial, depression, denial ensued.  Well, you get the picture

6) Muse returned to kick butt

7) Sent translations to the AWSOMEST FRENCH GIRL EVER, my new bff nancy1978 who not only went out of her way to let me know my French sucked big time, but then took the time to send me the translations for my previous posts (which I'm ashamed to admit I have yet to fix, but I figured the next chapter was more important).  Then, she graciously fixed the translations for this latest chapter and sent them back with almost no turn around time.  How awsome is that?!

8) All the pocking and prodding from my nervous fans awaiting an update finally got to me

9)  Nope, that's it.  Were they good enough?  Well, you're gonna have to read and review before you decide...

22. Chapter 22 Court Etiquette by SkyBel [ - ] starstarstarstarstar (4695 words)

Hey there faithfull readers!  Well, I can be hopeful that some of y'all are still out there, right?

The worst thing is that I had 3/4 of this chappie written weeks ago, but then my Grandmother died, which hit me kinda hard, then when I was just getting over that, RL decided to deal me a nice blow just for the fun of it.  Some of you out there who have become close friends know what I'm talking about and I really value your support in the tough time that I'm going through with my health.  Here's my shout out to y'all, in no particular order....pbswimmer, ncoop, mikoki, foxriverinmate, domfangirl/americanoutlaw, martinibaby1, qwertysd01, wrldpossibility, chicago21, chanchito, pbaddict4va...and anyone else I missed.

But most especially, I dedicate this chappie to my pal nikki, who has been pestering me to write a Paul-centric chapter forever - and NO girly, I aint gonna tell ya who's on the phone so there! *pokes tongue at nikki*

23. Chapter 23 Portraits in Dorian Grey by SkyBel [ - ] (5362 words)

Well, my promised 6 weeks turned into 4 months...

I'd just like to profusely thank my faithful reviewers who continued to ask after my health while subtly hassling me for the next chapter *g*...It was muchly appreciated.  So I give a special shoutout to foxriverinmate, ncoop4, pbswimmer, PBaddict4va, domfangirl, Chicago, burntcircleswrldpossibility, yenneffer, mikoki, aimee, coffee mill, Jesicaa, moviegal102, arzim, shadowflame, mercurial1, bnleah, angel cakes, nougatte, and if I missed anybody please accept my humble apologies.  Oh, and feel free to let me know when you review! *g*

My medical condition turned out to be fairly serious, although not life threatening, so it has taken a long time for me to recover and during that time I had no energy and no concentration to put into the fic.

Enough for now...read on!  Oh, and I hope it was worth the wait...

24. Chapter 24: Careful What You Wish For (Immortality is a Bitch) by SkyBel [ - ] (4712 words)

Hey there loyal readers...

*hears crickets*

But...but...I have a really really good reason for going awol for 8 months (omg, it's been 8 months?).

1. I found out I have Breast Cancer

2. I had a partial mastectomy and lymph nodes removed

3. Chemotherapy

4. Radiotherapy

So, does that seem like a good enough excuse?  I thought so!

But I'm not here for a pity party (In case anybody asks, I am currently cancer free but need to remain so for 5 years to be in remission.), I just want to get back to writing!

So here's the deal, I have part of this chapter written and I figured that instead of having you wait around for even longer, I would post this now then post the rest when it is written.  Hopefully this should be within the next couple of weeks as I only have 9 days of treatment to go (Crazy wavy arms o/).

I've finished the rest of this chapter.  Feel free to re-read from beginning to end, but if you wish to just continue from where we left off last time...just scroll down, you won't miss it...

PS In case anybody is interested, I have finished my treatments and now I am on the long road to recovery.  Thankyou to all those you have offered me their support during the past year, it's helped immensely to know that you were out there thinking of me.  Hugs and kisses to you all.


25. Chapter 25 Don't Bet Against a Sure Thing by SkyBel [ - ] starstarstarstarstar (4326 words)

Hey!  Remember this fic?  I'm not even going to comment on the length of time between updates because I really can't believe its been this long.

Hopefully there are those still interested.  Well, here goes...
