Very sweet story. Loved this line: "The wild horses stampeding in his stomach caused his words to gallop out of his mouth."

Charming. I loved the way that Henry struggled to get his grammar right – injected just the right amount of humour

delightful story of "perhaps romance?" Loved the lighthearted and flippant teacher's personality. Made the characters very realistic. Excellent job!

I love it! Quite charming, and I felt as if I could see and hear each of your characters.

Henry is such a loveable guy, and Halley so lighthearted - what a pair! I loved how this ended - and the wonderful job you did with characterization!

A really cute story. This is nicely written and you did a good job of developing your characters for such a short piece. This is one that leaves the reader wanting to know more. Good job!

This is such a fun story! I thought I had already commented on it, but noticed I hadn't when I re-visited. Thanks for the day-brightener (twice!).

A fine job on characterization with such limited time. You also were quite effective in taking us back to the days on the prairie.

If this was any more fun, I couldn't stand it. I could literally see the two main characters. You really brought them to life. Excellent!

Catchy title! This was a cute story, Henry works his way into your heart and Halley was quite the 'catch'.
