A Pocketful of Poppies - Part Sixteen

Another update from me! Part sixteen of A Pocketful of Poppies is now posted on Fictionpress so hopefully, the drill is known by now. Head over there and read the chapter for me and let me know what you think of it if you want. Also, thank you very much to Naoise for the banner she made below. I absolutely adore it.

I love it! 'Did I stutter?'

So, so, so sweet :)

"Did I stutter?" was my favourite line from that update! Very cute :]

I have a bit of catching up to do in regards to When Night Is Almost Done, and Better Together. I think I've mentioned before that Jamie and Violet are one of my favourite couples of yours, so that should be good, reading that again :]

I was listening to Fleet Foxes today, and I thought that 'Meadowlark' epitomizes the pretty combination of sadness and quiet and beauty that Poppy possesses. I also thought that it sounds like the type of song she might listen to... but then I realised maybe I'm a bit too obsessed with some of your characters! Haha. In a totally good way of course.

Anyway, I thought I should mention that song.

Oh. My. Gosh. This has got to be the best story I've ever read. I know I said that about "The Flower Girl," but this beats it by far (not that TFG isn't amazing because it most dedinitely is). I am so in love with this couple. And I LOVE Nate and Gretchen together. You are such a fabulous writer, I can't get over it. The chemistry between these couples is through the roof! Seriously. I CAN NOT wait for more. I am so excited for the next chapter!

I had a smile on my face the entire time while reading this chapter. Thanks for updating on Gretchen and Nate, I was so curious about them. Once again she gets a 'mhmm' and a *snap*.

I definitely felt for Poppy regarding her friends :(

As for Justin, his cockiness is completely hysterical and charming. I, like Poppy, am under his spell.

I think Justin Aldridge is pushing Brett Dawson from top spot in my mind. It's a close one though.

I absolutely adored this chapter.
I am also really happy you liked the banner.

"Did I stutter?" like everyone has already said is the sweetest thing ever said. Aw, Justin!

Gretchen has done it again LOL!! Of course she likes the guy, I mean...how can you have massive butterfiles in your tummy and not felt some sort of attraction or like towards someone? You can't deny that!!

"Did I stutter?" Haha, that's was awesome. Great job on this chapter.
