Beautiful, touching writing ... if flash fiction could be big enough to be a page-turner, I'd have been pushing on to get to the denouement! Loved it.

PS, my 50 words are written and ready for Friday by the Fire

Wonderful story - I found myself gripping my thigh as the youngin' slid down toward the river. Great ending and I agree with Mark Starlin about guardian angels after two personal experiences.

A great story! It was gripping and intense, I had to rush through it the first time to see how it ended!

Wonderful story, Justin. The boy sliding down the ravine and into the river was absolutely chilling! I held my breath the whole time until he was rescued. Very effective writing!

Well done, Justin. I like to think that we have that connection with those that came before us.

Man, this is so good! Love the way you build pace in your writing. Even nicer to see you have the support of your mom here as well. Ms. Deming has me interested to know about the childhood events that were worked into this story.
