So, I am trying to help my friend with his novel. It is completely written using the past tense. I need help from you to check if the following sentence is correct.
As luck would have it, they all ended up getting jobs in the same city. Together, they rented a two-bedroom house and had been living there ever since.
I am trying to keep everything in the past. So, is it okay if I use past perfect continuous tense for the last part with 'ever since'?
