I enjoyed it immensely!
First I was a bit concerned that it could be a story of Johnny and Nicole, but the focus is always on Bodie and Doyle - and so the end didn't break my heart... I think it's realistic and melancholic at the same time-
Some very good moments with Bodie and Johnny.
A great story!
(When you write your next story you should trip your artist up so that she can't run away...! ;-))

I’m really glad you liked it:) It was a joy to write about the lads and bring in some other, what I hoped would be interesting, characters for them to sort of bounce off. And yes, I felt it had to end the way it did - realistic if sad. Thanks for reading and thanks for your lovely comments:)

You bet! I’m thinking of tying her to a chair with her art materials gathered around her so she can’t escape*g*

I'm always happy when there are strong "minor" characters in a Pros story!

Good plan! ;-)

I love the manga style pictures. They really fit the story so well. And the story - so much action and so sweet. Great stuff.

Wonderful story. The characterization, of all characters, was well done. The research you'd done was evident. Well written.

Loved this! It's not often that I end up caring as much for the OCs as I do the regular characters, but I did here. You did a wonderful job of creating two new and exciting characters to play off the lads. And since I've written a story set in South Africa, I actually knew what they were saying! *g*

A wonderful story that fits with the equally wonderful artwork.

Thank you! I’m very glad you enjoyed the story and the characters:) Interesting that you’ve also had a South African ‘connection’. I was hoping most of the Afrikaans expressions/words were fairly obvious but it’s good to know someone else understood the meanings*g*

And yes, the artwork is brilliant isn't it:)
