I always felt that a "too close" incident would be what brought them together. You've expressed it extremely well here; not one word too many or too few. Thanks so much fo writing this.
Thank you, Pat!! i have thought that too. Each near miss brought them closer and closer until they realized what they really stood to lose and to gain if they took that last step. I wanted it to be clean, clear cut. No waffling. Just them continuing to be in perfect sync/harmony. Thank you for letting me knwo I succeded. ksf Nan
