I liked this. It took about three quarters of the way through the story before I understood the reality of the story. Before that my imagination was running wild, I like that in a read. The pace was great and the characters visually appeared in my minds eye. Good job looking forward to reading more of your work.
Great job. I was raised on a dairy farm. The description was so realistic I could smell the manure. The development of the characters can only come from the imagination of a witness. I like your way with words. I have a couple of short stories in my port that I know you will like. "Summer of 55". "Jake (The Boy )". "The Bench"
