The characters in this story are Dave, Morley and Dave's band, a dog and Jen
Reaction: I liked this story because it's a adventurous story Dave is playing with his band at the time and Morley lives in Toronto. In this story Dave really wants to marry Morley and when Dave purposes to her she thinks about it and says "yes."
The message in this story is to do what you want to do and live life.
