The child's idea of the bottles being "tear catchers" was heart breaking as you showed the resiliency of children. Good job.
Such a tender story as told by a child. I loved those bottles being called tear catchers. Only from the innocence of childhood. God bless.
great I love the dialogue and the clever touches. I lovethedescription of the imaginary friend thatso many children haveby the the story unfolds into something more tragic and sad. I hope you get credit this peice (in my opinion) deserves!
I really like how this is written in the child's voice. His innocence is wonderful. The imaginary friend named Luke was a wonderful touch.
In a story like this, you always hope for a happy ending. Even though it didn't materialize full blown, when the child placed smile producing picture where he thought tears were stored, it felt like the beginning of hope.
There are so many reasons this story is touching, and on so many levels. Congratulations on your second place win.
Congratulations on placing 2nd with this tender and sad story. Loved the MC's voice and the way he coped with missing his brother.
