    Chapter 11

    With this story and your writing style I think best way for any of us to read it is, seated comfortably at home with a glass of brandy to hand. That's the way I'm reading it anyway.

    Now that the truth is out maybe that's the opening to a happier future for all, it's just what form that happiness takes that we need to know. Yes I know we have to carry on reading the story to find out, and I'm more than happy to do that with both the story and the telling of it being this good. 😁

    The Boy Next Door

    A beautifully told story of an intergenerational friendship, definitely worth reading.

    Chapter 1

    There's not really a suitable emoticon for this story because it's both a happy and sad story at the same time. But it is beautiful story of friendship that spans the generations. Loved it even though it has a sad ending.

    A short story of the innocence of youth, something that we all went through and yet we all tend to forget. Thanks for bringing back some long forgotten memories.

    Children Not always Seen,

    I think that what you have said is what many others have tried to put into words but couldn't quite figure out how to. You make many good points, parents in themselves are not perfect but wish to appear that way to children, that is the cause of many of the problems but not all. As for the often used phrase ' Respect your elders' this infuriates me as I was brought up to believe that respect was something to be earned and not granted as a right, I don't believe that my Dad was wrong in teaching me that. The other often quoted phrase 'Children should be seen and not heard' is also something that is the biggest load of BS ever stated by 'adults'. It is my belief that should be seen and heard, after all they are people in their own right and and are deserving of the right to be seen and heard. Unfortunately as the title suggests too often children are not even seen let alone heard. Every adult and in particular every parent has a moral duty and obligation to correct this wrong done to children. I think I need to get off my soap box now before I fall off, but before I do thanks Dmrman for raising these very valid points.

    What can be said that hasn't already been said, you make it feel very real showing everything warts and all. Real flaws in peoples character, real differences in peoples reactions that's life, it's not perfect and we all know it. It looks like we are getting close to some form of closure for Kyle, I wonder what will come after that closure? Is it reconciliation of some form or is the platform for Kyle and Jacob to be able to move on in their own different worlds? That's a rhetorical question as I know I have wait.

    Please do not give up and dump the story, this is your creation and your story, you are doing an excellent job. Just look at all of your reviews, by far the majority of us are really enjoying it and want the story to continue. One or two not so good reviews from people that have forgotten that this is a fictional story are far outweighed by all of the good positive reviews that you are getting. The majority are with you and your story and we are enjoying it.

    Tension or what? You could feel it, you're definitely exercising your knack fo getting the feelings and emotion in your words. I'm happy for Andy and Brian, but I wonder if I'll be happy for Kyle, Jacob and Dave? Guess we have to wait and see.
