Butch_BDB: *turning to look @Rhage_BDB in the eyes* I wish I had some deep piece of advice to give you, but I don’t. But you don’t need advice do you?
Butch_BDB: @Rhage_BDB The two of you are perfect for each other. Absolutely perfect for each other. You’ll be fine up there. Just trust your heart.
Rhage_BDB: *Feeling at a loss for words for once, nodding @Butch_BDB* Thank you, Butch.
