    The only stipulation I have about this story is that it's too short! The minute I started reading I was pulled in. Joshua reminds me of myself and one of my biggest fantasies: meeting a woman from another world and having her all to myself. The way you introduced her, I immediately wanted her as much as J did. But then, in a flash, about as quick as she was introduced, she was gone. I felt that I missed her as much as Josh did. Please make this story longer, or continue it. If you have, I'm going to go look through your catalogue right now. I loved this story and it hurt to end it so abruptly.
