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!

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.
