    Gentlemen I will put my story in here soon I promise. I am not on any other websites so I cannot put a link to my story elsewhere. Mainly because this is the only site that is all about what I love. Too many haters on the other sites. Dont have time for their BS. Anyways, just letting you know I will have a story up some time in the next couple of days or so!
