@orangecookies: thank you! I really tried to get the pacing of the ending right, so I'm pleased to hear that it worked well for you. :)
So cute. <3 It was short and sweet and the ending wasn't dragged out, but it wasn't too sudden either. Wonderful. :)
That second panel! Perfect depiction of her excitement.
