Wow! What a story! I like it. The old man could use a little more polishing in his writing about the quantum physics part, but he is such a vivid character.

This story was well written. I would start a new paragraph each time a different character spoke, this would help break the story up to make it easier to read. I enjoyed the old man character; he had a view on life.

What an intriguing character Ernest is. I enjoyed reading your story.

This is a very well written story--very vivid and engaging.

If I may make one or two suggestions,

1)I agree that your sentences need white space between them, particularly in a dialogue exchange. When you read the upper levels, you will notice that the spacing is done regularly within those entries, giving the reader a much needed break for the eyes...there's so much to read here at FW.

2)The only part of your story that didn't ring accurate was in the last spoken phrase of your female mc. Her response to Ernest seemed a bit trite after the deep things he divulged. I'm not sure if her comments were supposed to reveal something about her, but in this case it came as a jarring statement from an otherwise very likeable lady.

These are indeed small observations because, as a whole, you have a keen ability to tell a story well. Keep it up!
