Chapter 20 found HERE.

My chapters are getting a lot longer. For some reason. I don’t expect it to last, but who knows?

The objective this time round was to give a bit of background about Anneliese – a character who, incidentally, didn’t exist in this story until that one chapter with her in the tavern. I literally came up with her at that moment, so now it only makes sense to try and give her something else to do. She’ll have a role to play in what’s to come – though just a minor one.
