V4 explores the low level anxiety that an adolescent male feels. The conflict was started by an act of violence/rough play on the soccer pitch. Was it intentional, or part of the game? An athletic board will decide.
Good writing: "stud with studs...one eyeed trouser snake...football has kept me going...talking about someone else's problems."
I have reviewed V4's three other stories that relate to the world of soccer. I think she has the material to produce a 100 page novelette that soccer fans and parents can identify with. She has the characters and basic story sturcture, but she needs to develop and refine it.
material: Scott's parents arguing that leads to divorce; Ama, girl friend who doesn't make it with the lead character, but plays a role. The teachers and coaches in the school. All characters we know from our own lives. Professor Moriarty, writing from the Magic Kingdom, Disney World, Orlando.

Only error = page 3, It = lower case. Morris gives us the newly found diary of an adolescent girl (what does she look like? what does she wear, Writer?) The four page story tells us that the girl is aware of her father's extra marital bar pickups,... read
A review of Absolutely Corruptedby James Moriarty on 09/27/2013Well, TS.com assigned this reviewer another one of these strange stories of the Zombie World or something from the Supernatural. A Warlock from the past 2.5 centuries (perhaps another Devil buying souls, or trading supernatural help for a human in trouble...that sort of stuff)offers his services to a bullied teen. Some readers like this genre, and other readers like me do... read
