This is a touching, heartwarming and frightening story of brotherly love. Very good description of the turmoil and distress surrounding everyone.
I really like the backstory you gave Ben about going back east. You took the episode "Rain from Heaven" in a whole new direction. Adding interesting plot twists and putting the Cartwright family front and center. Good stuff!
I loved the scene by the lake. Your portrayal was raw and yet so very tender and loving.
I enjoyed reading this story very much. Good job!
Thank you, Tahoe Lee! I had been a little woried about this one as I wrote it, but it soon fell all into place. Glad you enjoyed it!
