Well…it's been a long run…I'm glad that I finally finished this up (it took me long enough). A huge, humble thanks to everyone who reviewed this. You were all so sweet and kind: the reason I keep writing. I hope everyone enjoyed the end of the story. Any and all criticism is not only welcome but thoroughly enjoyed. Thank you all sooooooo much and keep an eye out for upcoming stories/poems, and possibly an updated (longer?) version of this story, if, of course, it's wanted.
