Pretty good😄

I like your stories a lot. I listen to them before I go to sleep. The only problem I have with them is that the endings need work. I think there could be a lot more to the endings then, “and the main character lived happily ever after or, “and the evil character died. But other then that great job. 😜😝😛🥳
