Very nice Bethany. Overall, a good story, with a complete story arc, and a nice message. There were a few details that didn't seem right to me. Based on the description of the location, weaponry, etc, I pictured an Indian population or some kind of native culture. The girl with blond hair and blue eyes just didn't fit the scenario to me. And, when the MC and the girl are returning to the village, you describe the setting as being dusk. (He was worried that they got back before dark). Yet, when they arrived in the village a short time later everyone was asleep. As I said previously, overall, I liked it.

Good story, i at first thought that it was going to drag a bit but soon found myself completely engrossed. It was engaging, had well built and relate-able, ultimately left me wanting more. Well done.
