What happens now? Continue for the final chapter!
Yes, it’s true. After all this time, Innocence & Carnality is coming to an end. What an amazing journey this has been. I couldn’t wait to share the last chapter after Wednesday’s exciting finale, so I’m posting the end early. I hope you don’t mind. (I didn’t think anyone would be upset.)

I hope you’ve enjoyed the journey as well.
Remember, if you missed Part One you can catch up on the link below which will take you to the story page on Gay Authors.org where it’s hosted:

In public, my parents used to bandy about polite professions of adoration as was expected during gentile events. Soirees crowded shoulder to shoulder with affluent rivals while being serenaded by what passed as musical geniuses. Holding court while performing the proper dance at the Summer’s Grande Ball. I imagine their wedding was full of noble exultations of courtly praise and binding emotions.
It was a shame I bore witness to their lives in private.
