Wow, thank you for those uplifting words, Jordan. I’m not that familiar with this style/genre, but I loved writing it. I’m definitely planning something really cool with this. Both Michael’s words and yours motivate me.
I also like your question.
I don’t know if children talk with each other about the nightmares they have at that age, but I’m confident that the kid feels like it’s his duty to spread the gentleman’s knowledge as he grows into manhood. As he gets older, he starts to see the gentleman as his mentor. They share a valuable relationship.
