I love this story. I have read it 16 times just to make sure I didn't miss anything. It's perfect the way you capture Amanda and Duncan's relationship. Particularly the reason why Amanda always runs. She loves him completly. She just can't be his 'little woman'. Not for all eternity anyway. And it's very true that he doesn't allow her to change. Mostly because he wouldn't know who she is and how he fit into the world of Amanda, serious and grown up.
