Wow, I love this story. I just read the whole thing right now and I'm favoriting it!
You're an amazing writer...your writing is so moving.
I adored this chapter.
And I love how you didn't make Bertie the bad guy in your story. That character for him is way too overused.
And haha, a lotta people said that, the thing about Bert. I totally agree with you, dude.
