This was a fast movig chapter with a lot of action.
It was nice the way you explained aboutNick Jnr's life and how settled and happy he seems to be - but the relationship with Amy is simmering under the surface, it's there even though he's trying to *not* think about it, but it's just waiting to happen between them.
Frankie's thoughts on Ace's funeral were very interesting, a great insight and bringing this character in links solidly to the past, a person from the past who is still living who can tie back to the old days.
The flashback was vivid and Nicky running into Ginger was just perfect, it's like sees her everywhere he turns, even when he's not expecting her to be there - and Frankie saying to Nicky:
"I hope that you have no plans to fuck her."
is a great line because of course he denies it - but we all know it WILL happen and how things will end up, so that was a great way to bring that in as a reminder of the doomed romance.
And Nick Jnr having a fight at the funeral was very much the way his father would have reacted, when he defended Amy. He has his temper. And I liked the kiss at the end of the chapter, it was the perfect time to bring the together, after the is very much like his father! I'm looking forward to reading more :-)

WOW this is great! First of all, this is edited and so well written, its sharer and the characters really come to life- your writing is taking on a life of its own in a very three dimensional way and the whole story is just springing to life before my eyes and I think its fantastic!
And I love the way we have the past and the present entwined, its great to see Nicky Jnr and Amy are piecing the past together and it's interesting that they have been more than friends too - they have quite a history between them - which is nice because the spark is still there even though Amy is very preoccuppied right now with solving the mystery of the past and she's also trying to reassure herself that she is nothing like her mother, so she has much on her mind, but I can certainly tell there is a spark between them.
And the flashbacks to the past are magical.
It's told very vividly and the characters are very well written indeed, this was a compelling chapter, once I started it I could not stop reading, I had to know what happened next.
This story is great, it's getting better and deeper and drawing the reader in even more with each chapter, it's a very good read!

This is a great first chapter. It's a good introduction to the whole opening of the story - the kids are grown up and want to find out about the past.
It's a very good idea to have Amy and Nicky Jr. as adults, as the main characters looking back as the flashbacks to the past come alove through what they are finding out via the secrets Ace left behind.
The characters are brought to life very well and this chpater was very effective at opening up the whole story - the kids want to know more about their parents.
And the way you ended the chapter, with Amy saying "I want to know more" is very appropriate because it certainly makes the reader want to read on and also know more.
This is a good story and I'm looking forward to more of it, I want to know what other secrets from the past are going to be revealed! And it's lovely to see a Casino fan fic on here too, it's an iconic movie and deserves more fics written in the fandom. And this story is off to a good start!
