This one made me teary.

Oh, this was a very unique take on the topic. At first, the word "culminating" in the 5th to last paragraph threw me for a loop... I was wanting to read it as "culminated" since it happened in the past, and it took me a couple of reads to realize it fit just fine the way you wrote it. You did a great job capturing the emotion and drawing the reader in.

Love the dialogue AND the description here. Great title for this lovely piece. You did a wonderful job of capturing the mood in this story.

Such a sweet story. Loved it; however, I've always thought (I'm probably wrong) that Reading Railroad is pronounced "redding" - rhyming with heading; thus, I didn't find the bona fide topic of "reading" here; but we're allowed to be "picky" up here in Mastersville. Right? Great Write, however! Kudos.

Wonderful story! It was one that made me cry as I judged this week, and I don't cry often! :) Your characterizations were wonderful--it was if I was there, observing every detail so carefully crafted. Congratulations on your EC placement! Well-deserved! :)
