Oh, this is a terrific start, Jim. Tic, Tac, Toe is quite a character, and I can see you are going to have lots of fun with him. Loved the way you pointed out that you needed to conform to the gardening community to fit in, and the ostracism that followed if you didn't. And that note of tension at the end, a sense of impending doom....really well done.

Thank you very much for reading this and for reviewing. It is very much appreciated. Of course in real life we have our own "gardens" that society dictates we must abide in to fit in.

Thank you for reading this and for the comment. I had a lot of fun writing this. There are some nice twists and turns I think. In any case I do appreciate you reading this first chapter.

Great start, love the trimese character and the premise. Would think this is aimed for an older kid, perhaps age 10+ audience as the vocabulary is on the higher end. I like the end of your chapter, setting up the suspense. Would love if you could review my newest short story as well.
