Tradition...

Yes, storytime once again. I'll try not to be redundant, so let's consider it a refresher. :) Can't exactly talk about this trinket without a BIT of an overlap in storytelling.

And yes, Cabal is trying very hard to hold it together right now. He might call her "Carmen" instead of Mom, but that doesn't mean he loved her any less...

I am actually flipping some things around from the written version of this story. Cabal started talking about the most recent bauble first in the novel... but I thought it might be better to start at the beginning and work forward rather than the other way around.

One advantage of this not yet being a published novel... I can make changes as I like and not worry about contradicting something in the story if it works like I want it to. :)
