Thank you everyone for reading this, and am just posting 1 final note to the followers of this story that I am now writing a companion to "Choosing to Leave". It's entitled "Remembrance" and is written from Erik's POV.
"Remembrance" is still work-in-progress but I have the rough storyline (which may change haha) in my head. Unfortunately also, due to my other commitments, I won't be able to update as quickly as "Choosing to Leave", but will do the best I can. Do bear with me on this.
Please also let me know what you think of both stories. Really really appreciated the kind reviews so far. Thanks again!
