Hi all, I'm back, but interrupting myself with a new, shorter story - I needed a change to regain momentum. This will be three or four chapters long (just need to decide how I'm going to divide up the ending), and will give me time to figure out how to wrap up Shadowboxing.
The romance element to this one is pretty subdued; the focus is on the protagonist's relationship with his disability, and on a near-future science-fictional concept for assistive technology - one of several that I've been mulling over lately.
I do hope you enjoy!
