His chance appears! Does he grab it with both hands? You betcha! Does it all work out just fine? Hell, no. He’s pitched into treachery and deceit.
When Henry is forced to set out on a terrifying journey, it is his timid friend Peter at his side. Neither of them wants to admit it, but they both wish fervently that the fearless D.C. was with them. But in this world, things don’t work out the way anyone wants or expects.
