43,799 and another page down. That's page 87 out of 93, by the way. And the total for the story is 46,328 counting the couple thousand plus that I did before the dare.
Going to take quite a bit to get this one up to the proper word count, but that's not a surprise. With the exception of Abby, they've all been that way. It'll be fun to work with some entirely new material this time. I know the type of stuff I want to add, too. It's become increasingly obvious as I worked through the novel.
Closer and clsoer to done.
