Eli learns a new word and will drive Oskar crazy with it until groovy loses its novelty for her.

My dear friends - Part 9 is up. I hope you enjoy hanging out with our murderous munchkins as much as I did while I was writing this part. :wub:

The back and forth between the detectives is very effective. It shows not only how the logical path they need to follow to find the 'perps' evolves, but the subtle misdirection by Constantin. Good stuff.

All good news -- I restored the headings so part 9 would be easier to read.

No one commented on it, so I'll tell you -- Quimet Garcia is based on a former Italian soccer player in Copenhagen. He was asked to take over an Italian class in a community center.

If this sounds familiar, then you saw the delightful film, Italian for Beginners. Quimet Garcia is an homage to the soccer player and to the film, one of my favorites.

Second good news -- Part 10 concludes Set Me as a Seal upon Your Heart. After I put in the html codes for italics and boldface, I will submit it to be moderated.

For those who have followed the story for the more than the two years it took to write, I want you to know how much I have appreciated your comments, PMs, and emails. Several members have served as a small writing group that helped keep me on track. And even suggested and contributed content at times. You couldn't buy the dear friends that I have become so close to on our wonderful forum.

Above all, I have had our two vampire munchkins to hang out with. :wub:

But every silver lining must have its dark cloud. I have no plans to go forward with Book 3.
