Uh, thank you? I think?
Thank you for your email. Yes, I went insane when I wrote this. After I
wrote the first story, Cory Rose bugged me to do a sequel, and only until
now did I come up with something that worked (At least in my opinion).
I'm glad you're enjoying my little yarn. The third chapter will wrap up
I hope you like the fact that Ace spends most of his time getting beaten up
by the Nerima Wrecking Crew. I'm not done with him yet.

> Anyway, huzzah huzzah. Go to it.
