I enjoyed reading this chapter very much Charlie. It is cleverly written and very well thought out. At least poor Jo had a happy child hood while she was young

Hello, Charlie.
Use of the full name is always an indication of displeasure...how cool that you caught on to that. Caitlin sure has grown strong and a bit rambunctious. Thanks for a good read.
Warmly, Rebecca

Less action than the last chapter I read, but it feels good to read heather as doing soemthing more... humane than whipping a gang member ;).

You need to set the tone of where the characters come from, and doing so, in lulls between action, can be difficult to do while trying to keep the reader interested.

You do so hands down!

Another good chapter Charlie. Your dialougue as always is a strong point in your writing. Can't help you with the grammer as i am also rubbish.

C_Lucas,
I think the characters are believable and the dialogue flows well. It's always difficult to throw in dialects and I think you pull it off.

SUGGESTION: THIS SENTENCE DOES NOT FLOW WELL.
She followed its flight until distracted by several children at play, kicking a round ball.

The story continues to move along well. You have the cadence of the speech down very well, Charlie, so all seems to be moving along. This is a good transition chapter. Be well. Larry

I personally do not see any weak grammar in this script,instead a fine style we are trying to forget which is very enssential as far as litrature is concern.What a fine piece indeed!

Caitlin has grown up to be a five year old since I last read about her. To have been a sickly baby she has grown into a happy fun loving little girl. Her mother has chosen not to tell her about her father. Good story. pnkglo

This work has reached the exceptional level

I read one of your chapters a few days ago, and everything I said about your writing then holds true with this chapter. You, my fellow writer, are a born story teller. What you write about here is the simplest of things, but you make it intriguing. My attention never wavered. You are great with characterization and setting, and have a wonderful writing style. I don't recall reading any of your poetry...but I'd certainly like to.

The chapter is pure excellence! Again, six stars.
