This was a very emotional read for me and I am praying that you are not the mc of this story. Before I got to the part about the phone call, you had me remembering lots of things in my own childhood. I had completely forgotten about the little wax pop bottle with juice in them (how could you make them last until the next day?) I'm not a judge, but if I were, the emotion you portrayed and the images you presented would have my vote. Very nicely done! Blessings to you, Laura

Your title fits this piece well. I was wondering from the beginning what you had to reveal. A great emotional piece with a lot of memories tied in.

A beautiful and poignant story. Even as you described the "happy times," I could sense the building tension as I waited for the "eventual disclosure." Well done!
Very nicely written.
You brought back sweet memories for me too... especially of bike rides and swimming in the public pool... this was very well written, and I felt everything... I was there w/ your MC as she wrote... good job!

Hi Kathryn. I just wanted to leave a quick note to let you know your entry, Eventual Disclosure, actually did very well in the Summer Challenge. Although you didn't receive an award, you made it into the Highest Rankings for Level 1, placing 6th in that Level.

The competition is always intense in Level 1, so you deserve a pat on the back. :-)

If you'd like to check the highest rankings for yourself, you can find them here:

The highest rankings are posted every Thursday evening on the Message Boards.

Again, well done!

With love, Deb (Challenge Coordinator)
