This is part of a much larger whole. The larger whole has been tossed out though. The lack of a title (at one point it was just named after the character 'Dell') seemed to confuse some so I have given it a title. Let me know if it sucks.
I am not sure if this is complete or not. I had fun writing it though. It was the first thing I had written new in about 11 years. It was inspired by the artwork of Kellie Gillette ... a good friend of mine.
I am too honest to call this the first chapter of a new book ... like most of my work it is unlikely to be finished ... but at least it is a start ... Let me know if you want more.
There is a twist in this tale. I try to give some clues so it doesn't come out of the blue ... I hope to surprise you anyway.
