Not recognizing the printed TreeStory

My code in Prompter.java prints the final TreeStory to the console. The whole program also runs fine on IntelliJ. Unsure why the Treehouse Challenge thinks it is not printing the TreeStory.

public class Main {

    public static void main(String[] args) {
    // write your code here
        Prompter prompter = new Prompter();
        //story: Thanks __name__ for helping me out.  You are really a __adjective__ __noun__ and I owe you a __noun__.
        System.out.print("Please type in your story template: ");
        BufferedReader reader = new BufferedReader(new InputStreamReader(System.in));
        String story = "";
        try {
            story = reader.readLine();
        } catch(IOException ioe){
            System.out.println("Problem with your story template.");
        }
        Template tmpl = new Template(story);
        prompter.run(tmpl);

#  This is essentially what I am testing 
1.  The user is prompted for a new string template (the one with the double underscores in it).

  a. The prompter class has a new method that prompts for the story template, and that method is called.

2.  The user is then prompted for each word that has been double underscored.

   a. The answer is checked to see if it is contained in the censored words.
      User is continually prompted until they enter a valid word

3.  The user is presented with the completed story

Thank you for replying Brendan. I had that error message come up before and I fixed that one. The error that I am getting now is: "Bummer: Looks like you didn't present the TreeStory (3)."

No I haven't - my codes in this post are after I have already addressed the "TODO" problem.

I don't know the answer, but did you see the error message? "Bummer: Whoops looks like you forgot to remove the TODO's after you completed them. This helps everyone know it is done"
