Seems to be recurring action for Patrick.
Also, OH MY GOSH, you guys, thank you for all the kind, beautiful comments and well-wishes yesterday. ;___; It means a lot to me and made my heart sing!! I'm so glad you're enjoying SfR, and it makes me more confident in sharing this story. We're nearing the end of Chapter 6, too, but... I still have a few more surprises in store before Chapter 7! \(030)/
You also brought up a lot of interesting points that will be covered later on, so I didn't want to drop any spoilers. But YEAH, Patrick, hmm! You're way out of place in this century, dear child.
