"The Age of Innocence" by Cole Parker

Recommended Posts

New story here.

Somehow it seems like the neighbors' Jack Russell should be the one named Scottie and the narrator should be Joe.  Just goes to show.

Oh -- and we'll have to wait to see the relevance of the reproduced page of music on the title page.  

We'll have to wait and see just how innocent our young protagonist is.

The tomboy can be a source of answers to a lot of questions he is struggling with.

Still a mystery. Probably will be for several chapters. 🙂

We discover at last the pertinence of the music on the title page. 

Young Scottie seems to have a precocious knack for sussing out what makes certain adults tick, particularly where those adults stand as obstacles to his well-being. First his mother, then Micah’s dad. He has a great future in something.

Still can't open it, I'm still seeing an error massage.

Talking about cliffhangers: after reading part 13 and knowing 14 is the end..... This is really nagging. 😄


Edit: fixed it by refreshing the page again. Start reading now... 🙂

Edit-edit: great ending Cole. Thank you so much!

I waited until the last chapter was posted before reading this one. The wait was definitely worth it! This was great. I really liked how you wrote Scottie's first sighting of Micah, and his emotional and physical reactions to that. Well done. Of course, the bowling definitely should have been five pin, far more romantic.

Another excellent story, Cole! Thanks as always for writing it.
