“Have you come into contact with Ashleigh? Has she said anything about the blog?”
Since she left last summer, I haven’t seen Ashleigh. We’ve had occasional email and text correspondence.
When I finished writing the first chapter and made up my mind to publish this story, I emailed her to see how she felt about sharing it publicly on the web. She got back to me, saying that she supported it given that the posts that followed were similar to Chapter 1. I don’t know what she thinks about later posts.
