This was a really good story. I thought it was a shame The Watsons was not continued into a novel. Emma is a wonderful girl. I love that she asked Charlie to dance with her.

true wit of jane here lies within. indeed, it showed no distinction between both authors' perspectives. the story flowed like a refreshing brook.
