Double update! Check back a page if you didn't see the last one. I'm really glad that I gave Johanna a chance to change dresses; I like this one a lot better than the outfit she had at the beginning of the chapter.
Re Susan's comment: Yes. The whole thing is to mess with you, and amuse us! BWAHAHAHA! *coughs, still cackling*
Riley's sire is the invisible man! That's why Bernard gave up on finding him- he knows that seeing someone who can turn invisible is kind of hit or miss, so it's better to just wait until he turns up on his own.
God bless you, Susan.
Also, have you watched Jekyll by any chance? It's a six-episode BBC TV show that also deals with the descendants of Jekyll and Hyde. Your stories aren't really the same at all, but there was a base similarity that reminded me positively of Sire. : )
@Atakiri: Yeah, I love Jekyll! I watched it every week while it was airing, and got the DVDs as soon as they were available in my region. ^_^ I'd already come up with the idea for Sire way before then, so when it was revealed that Jackman was a descendant, I cried, "Yes! The Lineage Child theory is correct!" XD
