Loved how the conversation flowed here...I would love to see more of this story.

The characters were vivid, real and heartbreaking.

Thanks for sharing this!
The dialogue was realistic and the characters were three dimensional, and the story itself was powerful. I enjoyed the entire piece, thank you. God Bless~
Great job with this topic. I love your last line and how it illustrates that all of our wordly solutions are temporary solutions. The contrast to the answer Robert has found is stark.
You really nailed the characters in so short a story. You ended it really well too. Awesome job in 750 words. Power-packed!
Awesome! The dialogue was real, the story was bittersweet....:D
Excellent job. So much dynamite packed into so few words. Grippingly realistic.
Your story flowed so well, reading it was effortless . I was led along word by word as your character worked through his memories then grappled with his childhood friend's life change and testimony.
We are all influenced by how we are brought up and your story tells this reader that there can be changes. This was a smooth, fast-paced story which held this reader's attention from the beginning. Very good!
Wow this is so powerful, and sad and filled with hope. I loved it.
This is a powerful one for sure. Spot on about what it means to not look back. Congratulations on the EC!
Congrats on your well-deserved EC, my friend. As always, your writing sucked me in and held me tight. WTG!
Congratulations on the EC. Well deserved for this great story.
Wow! This was so emotion-filled. What a message! I love the "On the Rock" title and allusion. Super congrats on your EC, Mari!
