So it’s been almost two months since my last update. Thank you for your patience in waiting for the new chapter. I appreciate your continued readership, reviews, and beautiful artistic renderings of the story. Y’all are awesome!

Summary: ”For a girl who had thought that no one would ever truly love her again after her father died, it seems such a rare and precious gift to have love, and not just from anyone, but from the person she most adores and admires out of all the people in the entire world.”
Author’s Note: Thank you so much to Dr. Ruth for giving so generously of her time, talents, and thoughtful consideration in betaing this chapter. She truly is a genius and makes the writing process so rewarding. Special, special thanks to Lu for being such an awesome translator, helping me wade through the Spanish in this chapter even when she didn’t feel well. Happy upcoming birthday, bb! Finally, I dedicate this chapter to the effulgent Tess, who celebrated her birthday earlier this week. May she have many happy returns.

Author’s Note: Special thanks to Sadie for betaing this story for me in the dead of the night. She saved my life. I am eternally grateful.
Thank you all for being so patient, waiting for the update! Real life has been crazy for me these last few months, so I apologize for the delay in posting. The good news is that I’m almost done writing the chapter and intend to have it up this week. Until then, I hope you enjoy this preview!
TKTD spoilers after the cut.
I asked, “How much for a loaf of bread?” and got a fifteen minute lecture and no bread.

It’s up! Thanks for putting up with me.
Summary for those who have not read:
AU: Set in a fictional 18th century Europe. At age 10, Santana Lopez, born into the wealthy and influential Lopez family, comes to acquire a peasant girl by the name of Brittany. And despite class differences, Santana falls in love with her.
So I just wanted to thank everyone for your patience in waiting for this update. In the past month, I have moved across country and begun both a new doctorate program and a new teaching job, so life has taken on new busyness for me.
I’ve split this chapter because it may well prove to be the longest one in TKTD yet. For anyone keeping track of my crazy chapter numbering system, which doesn’t match what appears on FF.net, both this update and the next one will constitute TKTD Chapter Nine.
Anyway, thank you all so much for reading the story and for your kind reviews! I very much appreciate it.
Word Count: ~29,000
Summary: “Will Santana ever not be a coward when it comes to Brittany?”
Author’s Notes: I dedicate this chapter to my home slice Kelly in honor of her birthday, which was yesterday. I love you, girl! As always, I thank Han for all her amazing, flawless beta work on this chapter. Her feedback was invaluable, as per her usual.
Stay tuned for TKTD: Chapter Nine: “Full Moon on a Sunday Night” (Part II)!
