Well done girl!   BRAVO!   

After that, I think we all lit up a cigarette and had to rest!    LOL

And I don't even smoke!     :laugh:

Great chapter, Leslie--I like its quiet, with only a few exclamations. There's nothing you do here that coulodn't go on fanfaiction, that I can see---did I ness somethning?  Left a review over there, but don't think it was easy. and I couldn't correct typos.

As I guess most of you know, I don't take cold showeers...

"As I you"? Pretty fancy manipuilation of the King's English,   for what its worth.

So: is that the end? the previous chapter pretty much summed up the summer, but I thought you said rwo or three more. Anyway, I'm willing to read another 45, unless the army gets me.

Thanks, Leslie, for a great story!

There is one more chapter to "A Love Born From Steel" -- will post either tomorrow or Sunday.

I am already pondering a sequel in response to a prompt from brokebackslash on LJ. I'll keep everyone posted.

Hi,

Yes, it came between chapter 7 and 8. It was the postcards and letters between Ennis, Alma, Junior and Jenny. No sex in that interlude.
