Excellent story. It flowed well and kept me wanting to know what was going to happen next. I also liked the way the boy, even in his grief, could hold that stone in his hand and find comfort. Sometimes we need something to help us remember that, even if we are stoned to death, we are safely on THE ROCK. I liked the ending, tying the pebble to Stephen, the first Christian maryter.

A creative twist on a familiar Bible character--good job. You switched POV a few times, and changed your character's name from Tirus to Titus. But I loved the twist/realization at the end.
Very good story. I'm named for Stephen (though my parents favored the spelling with the V instead).

Very cool twist on the classic story and topic.

As mentioned above there are a few editing mistakes (Tirus to Titus; POV, also when speaking of God Your should be capitalized, etc.). Editing is never fun, but it's well worth it. You've written an entertaining and valuable story.
