Best part of story, including ending: I loved this story. It is a beautiful tale of two [ep[;e who have completely lost themselves and reunite in each other. The past is the past and only the future and what lies ahead matters.

Best scene in story: My favorite scene is when they are making a peach pie. It is a scene that focuses on hands. It is very sensual and warm. They two main characters really connect during this powerful and delicious scene.
