You paint a stark, but engaging atmosphere. I like how you demonstrate the transition that compassion can inspire.
Children and war make for a hard life, but your MC showed there is still a place for gentleness and compassion even in the face of hard times. Well written story.
Yes, what a stark contrast you've shown between the passion for control and the need for compassion.
Reality mixed with tenderness...
Congratulations on your entry being one of the Highly Commended entries for this level. Keep up the good writing.
This grabbed me from the beginning and held me to the ending. Loved your MC and the big heart he had for his "brothers". I shuddered over the ages of these boys--war is so ugly. Your writing was descriptive, creative and worth the recognition it received. Great work.
