Chris James Posted February 6, 2014 Report Share Posted February 6, 2014 Ah, I love the way Cole gives us such thoughtful words to read. Sebastian is an engaging short story and ever mindful of the simple fears a child encounters while growing up. I would grant the author elephant status because it seems he remembers what happens in childhood even though it has been a while for him...and the rest of us. Perhaps what I found so engaging is the little bit of misdirection his characters start off sharing. Boys are rarely honest when it comes to revealing the awkward truths of growing up. Trust is certainly the key to unlock that door behind which lies the painful memories we often hide, and only a true friendship allows that door to open. Thank you, Cole, another feather in your cap which is already quite filled with plumage. Sorry about the elephant crack, but perhaps you like the creatures.
