    Wonderful! I found the story a little confused until I got to the end and it all came together seamlessly.

    It’s nice to read a funny entry too.

    Thanks CR.

    Probably, though Mary Sue usually has Blue hair and Green eyes.

    Yes. It happens to me more than I’d like to admit.

    I had no idea what was going on until the last part – then I burst out laughing. Great work. :D
