I really enjoyed it, and wondered what Adam would encounter back in VC, especially from Roy Coffee. I still wonder why Roy didn't pursue Adam, but then again I'm not sure how I would have written that part myself! Adam was really a changed man, which you portrayed so well in his encounter with Handy, when everyone saw firsthand how things had changed. And good for Lucy, who pursued Adam when others probably would have given up, especially in the face of his coldness. I'm glad she prevailed. Have you written any more stories about Adam and Lucy? If not, it would be interesting to see how they're getting along (not so subtle hint). Thanks for the great story. Author's Response:
The way I figured it, after all that time, Roy still had no evidence against Adam so there would be nothing to follow-up. I loved Lucy---no reference to the TV show! :) -- and "Absolute Bearing_ is the follow-up story of Adam and Lucy--it's long--was my NaNoWri challenge story. And since you asked, "The Double-walker" is another prequel story of Adam and Lucy. There is another story, "The Wiving of Adam" but Lucy is dead at the beginning. I'm not spoiling anything because it's revealed in the first section. Read at your own risk! :-D
Thanks for reading and I'm pleased that you liked the story.
