    Congrats Sarig. Your story was deserving of the top spot. I think Adrienne may have given you a run for your money if her story would have been eligible, but I truly enjoyed yours. Congrats to everyone! This is why we write. Can’t wait for the next prompt.

    Frankly speaking I did not read all of the story. I voted on this story based on comments of Roy. Now I read the story. It was actually amazing. Sarig, you plotted so nice profile in the heart of the boy with varieties of feeling. Varieties of tears flew from his eyes and stopped with varieties of forces some time it stopped with courage of grand father, some time by his own imagination and some time by return of mother. I am not sure whether tears stopped or flew again with different kind ( not of fear, not of shame) may be be of love. If it had stopper it may be by safety.
