That was so utterly beautiful, I can’t believe it. Only few stories captivated me and made me go from deliriously happy to my gut churning with sympathetic pain like this one has. Sometimes you had me on the edge of my seat with painful anticipation and sometimes I dreaded reading on for fear of the outcome, but I couldn’t put it aside even if I tried. And now I need comfort chocolate…It was quite an emotional rollercoaster ride…It’s a magnificent work of art, because truly, it is art. I loved the way you described the locations in so much little details, that it felt to me I was really there… actually it always felt like you described them from fresh memory yourself. And I was totally stunned by the rich repertoire of descriptions of feelings and facial expressions you have in this story. I really do envy you for that. This truly is both chokingly sad at times, but so positive towards life it left me with a very satisfied happy tingling. Thank you!

Author's Response: Thank you so much for your kind words! I can't tell you how much I appreciate your taking the time to write. I'm especially glad that the descriptions worked. I spent hours on line researching the French Riviera, since I'd never been there and was terrified the locations would seem flat. Thanks so much for letting me know they worked for you. Hope this finds you happy and healthy. So sorry about the rollercoaster ride! :)

Uhm, by the way... who thinks John has struck a gay pose in the first panel of the 15th page?
I think so... weird... you can just about imagine him flapping his hands in there (if you don't read the story, in fact)... spent too much time in Soho... -_-
