Reviews for A Necessary Secret

That's a terrible situation, but one I can totally see happening.

You've got a few words mis-used, "quiet" meaning "not loud" rather that "quite" meaning "precisely", etc.

Your character is basically nameless and not very thoughtful to scramble like this to inform the (only parent?) mother in a harum-scarum way about his wizardry. Further, what's the idea of destroying/damaging something as proof? Not very "slow the heat death of the universe", is it?

Cathartic for you, perhaps, but not especially true to the ficton, I'm afraid.

I love this. Write more stories like this one, please!

Wow. That's pretty powerful stuff. I imagine the narrator is about to un-tell his or her mother about wizardry?

You did this really well. There are a couple of typos I noticed if you want to do anything about them ("of" instead of "at", and "warily" instead of "wearily").

"What hurts the most is that she's scared OF me. Whenever I'm around, she glances at me WARILY, as if she were afraid that I might blast her into pieces any second."
