Ken, great story, Ambrose is a rapidly rising star. I sure hope he survives because you can spin a good tale.
Thanks! I have some doubts on how long Ambrose can stay alive - he's become more reckless than he should be, counting on luck and my flying skill to get him out of anything he gets into, but that probably can't last forever. And because he's fairly unsophisticated and doesn't have a cynical bone in his body, something like this will only amplify that recklessness.
So we'll see. He's self-aware enough to know he's being reckless sometimes, and has commented on it in his letters. It's a race to see if he can temper it before it kills him.
