Katherine attempted to buy a lift back home to Saskatoon military base, but was turned away, due to her illness. The driver told her she shouldn’t be out in public spreading her disease about. She was left standing in the rain, as the first part of the monsoon winds hit. The local landlords also refused her a bed to stay. She found a place to shelter, in a tree house, built for local children. Dripping wet and freezing cold, she sat inside, attempting to shelter from the rains. This issue is dedicated to Fayesal Siddiqui, who has been a great support to me throughout the course of sharing these stories.

Very good writing and art-work!
I agree – this one is particularly well written. I love the opening description of the monsoon rain – you really had me hooked!
the illustrations rock.
Cheryl, thanks for that shout out 🙂
I’m not going to read this yet though, I don’t want to ruin the story for me 😛
Hi, Siddiqui, thank you again, it’s my pleasure, I hope you enjoy reading the series. 🙂
On top form again Cheryl. Beautifully descriptive writing and great sketches as usual. You’re really testing me now though with a new character, I’m not sure my old and addled brain can cope with any more mystery.

Thanks, David, glad you’re enjoying this, yes sorry to throw the Guild Master’s General into the mix (he’s been in a few older issues) the next few issues take you on a bit of a ride!
OK. I read it! I hadn’t realised i’m only a few posts behind 😛
I hadn’t anticipated this rendezvous now!
🙂 Ah, yes, it was a shock to Katherine too, but I think she’s secretly relieved!
Great unexpected changes. I love the surprise element and character changes. The drawings work beautifully with the story.
Thank you, Lee! Katherine’s going on a bit of an adventure next issue, I’m glad you’re enjoying it.
Hi Cheryl. Love the way you’re turning this around – it’s a beautifully written scene and the drawings are exceptional. The GMG is back to looking child-like and vulnerable – this is a great feat after the last time we saw him.
Thanks, Richard, yes there are so many things I wish I could tell you about the GMG, but I’m glad I shared this side of him with you. He’s a tricky character, a bit like Abouna Panak, in that respect. I can’t wait to release the next episode.
Wonder upon wonder opens with your always superb writing and art. This is whole new twist and I can only imagine where you will go next…
Thanks, John, Katherine certainly is going on a bit of a trip over the next few issues. She rarely gets to see any action, and I thought she needed some!
Put up the next one!
And then the next!
Thank you, 🙂 there’s one more out tonight! Glad you’re enjoying reading, Fayesal!
