I enjoyed this story very much.
You really nailed the characters. Adam's sarcasm, Hoss' innocence and Joe's inner-conflicts.
The scene with the birds, literally, had me laughing out loud. Good stuff!
Loved the story Adam told Joe. So... good. So... Adam.
Joe learns a lesson, about people, he'll never forget.
I'm very glad you enjoyed it, Tahoe Lee. And even more glad that I made you laugh... or I should say Hoss and Adam made you laugh. :) staying true to the boys' character is very important to me ( as is showing their bond) so I'm delighted you found them true in my story. Thank you so much!
