Bot Story:
    Book 2 – Milliscent Awakens

Author's Notes

This book is currently undergoing a major rewrite. Several things have changed since Book 1: Nancy Drew becomes Moon Shadow; Don Key becomes Edgar Egret; Scotty becomes Dougie McDonnell; Natalie Woods becomes The White Woods; The Woods of Westermain becomes Choblyn Wood; the pond near The Center for Advanced Stuff and the stream that flows out if it become Ariannu's Well and the River Ariannu.

Meanwhile, if you are willing to start a story that will probably not be fully completed until the end of 2005, plunge right in....

Chapter 2
