The whole idea of the two souls bonding together is brilliant! You could have easily just gotten the ritual over with, but you made it more complex. And that was a very interesting choice that you made.
Also, your author's note has gotten me even more excited for the next chapters ;)
Not as excited as I am ;] And I'm glad you like the bonding thing, I wasn't sure if it was too heavy - but then I wanted there to be some justification for having Gee molest someone on a daily basis.
Though really, who cares about justification? ;]
