Ok, let me get this straight: This takes place after Among the Free, when Mattias is old and dying. This story is about his thoughts as he lays dying, specifically about his feelings for Nina. Nina died when she was about 20 in this story, Mattias dies in his sixties.
Sense and sensibility, I know they're thirteen, but this takes place in future, way after Among the Free. Don't like it, then go flame someone else's story, cause I don't give a damn. Well, that's all for now, just wanted to clear things up. Laters!
