Story Notes:

For those of you who have never read any of this story, you might first like to read Lesley’s Tension - an Aside, which you will find in the archives on the board. It is only short but sets the scene for this saga of mine. ( I have no idea how to make links, I'm afraid.) When I joined the board, that was the first thing I ever read – and, immediately, a whole story dropped into my mind, which was bizarre as I had never written anything in my life before. Lesley was kind enough to allow me to appropriate the basic tenet of her story into mine.

If you want clarification of what Hilda tells Ian about her past in this chapter, you need to read my short drabble, A Future and A Hope, which explains what happened to Hilda to influence her coming to the CS.

Thank you all for your loving concern for Abby and Ray. Thank you also for your encouragement on here. I've just tried to post a huge chunk, so I could take us up to half term tonight, but it wouldn't accept it all so I'll finish this scene in another chapter tomorrow evening.

This is very short, to finish off the last chapter, since it wouldn't all post at once. Many thanks for the reviews.
