I love this so much!!! It's so sweet and amazing and everything about it is just wonderful. I think this is written really well and really displays a sense of love and growth in Frank. Like, as Frank is with Mikey getting older, he learns more about love, and being with Mikey allows him to learn about growing up. Doing things you don't want to do is part of growing up. For example, Frank was afraid of the Christmas dinner coming ahead and he really was contemplating running away just because of the trouble he knew would probably be coming, but because he loved Mikey and it would just be best to act mature, he stayed and decided to try his hardest to get through the day. I hope this makes sense. Anyway, I also thought it was really sweet that fifteen year old Frank was so upset about not being able to get a gift for Mikey. And of course Mikey doesn't mind. Being with Frank is enough, but that all just produced the best gift of all. An amazing relationship that led to an amazing family. I really liked that they had a child in this. I haven't read too many stories where Frank and Mikey have a kid, but I think those kinds of stories are very cute. I wish I could say more, but I think I'm just so amazed by this that I just don't know what to say. Anyway, beautiful job!!!
Thank you very much! I'm extremely happy that you liked it and found it to be sweet/amazing/wonderful; it really means a lot!
I'm glad that the sense of growth came through because that is something I really wanted to be made clear; with each year they both age, grew and fell in love that little bit more. I'm happy you got the point about Frank staying through the dinner because, even though he desperately didn't want to, he knew it was something that meant a lot to Mikey.
Thank you very, very much for taking the time to leave such a kind, detailed review! :D
