Amazing story Ryan. You held my interest till the very end. The story works at so many levels. First, we can enjoy it as a straight forward Sc. Fiction story or a thriller. Second, it is a forewarning or prophecy of things to come. Third, it works on psychological level, brings forth our fears of imprisonment. Fifth, it makes you wonder on how we treat animals in a cage. Sixth, it makes you question the world or the way of life, we humans have made for us. Seventh, it makes you appreciate the little things we ignore or take for granted and how we have our priorities in life all screwed up. We waste our time on things, incidents and people that do not matter. Lastly, thank you for inspiring me to work on my own unfinished stories…bless you.
