There is not much one can say about a story this good. Beautifully paced perhaps? Excellent construction? Both apply. No noticeable typos or grammar errors. Just a really, really good story. Well written and satisfying to read. Just the right length for a short relaxing break from work or play. Give yourself a break: read this story. Then wonder like me why the author is not accepting messages from the site, because I for one would really like to thank him or her for a truly wonderful experience.
Thank you "raplucknett", whoever you are.
