This is so good. I was so scared for the little boy and happy to hear the soldiers leave without finding him. I love your rhyme, too. Good job!
I felt the fear, tension and relief of your little boy. Great job of bringing a horrible part of history alive to your reader.
I enjoyed this story very much. My children would love to hear me read this to them.
Thank you.
Absolutely chilling...and excellently written. It captures very well a very evil time through the eyes of innocence.
So believable, like I was right there too. What a terrible time in our modern history.
I enjoyed your story very much. I'm always horrified when I read about this era. I could easily see this becoming a book for young teens. Good job.
Heart-racing suspense. I love the POV of the innocent child. I wonder if he knows deep down that this is no game. Terrifyingly good fiction.
Nicely done. I wonder whether it would have helped us get inside David's head if we had known how old he was.
Powerful in its simplicity; innocence arrayed against insane hatred; beautifully expressed.
Excellent story of suspense
Excellently done. Gripping, terrifying and wonderful.
Congratulations on your EC. I knew this superb piece would be at the top. You writing gives me the best kind of chills.
Congrats on the EC! This story is special. Thank you for sharing it with us.
You made me feel like I was sitting right next to the kid, hiding with him. Awesomely done. Congrats!
