Kyle’s life has been hell for years. He still wets his bed, wets himself just walking along the road, and everyone just laughs at him about it. When his mother takes him and brother Randy to the carnival, he hopes that nature won’t call to him there… but it does. And when Randy rushes him over to the Porta Potty, there’s something inside which does more than just scare the piss out of him.

Since I did the editing for this work, I cannot speak of any errors there may or may not be within it.
This is one of the best short stories I’ve ever read. Following two brothers, told by the older of the two, you can feel the love between the brothers.
The story while short takes the reader on quite a ride, and there may be a few tears once or twice through it.
I would suggest the author perhaps try his hand to lengthen it into maybe a novella to give the reader a better taste and feel.
I give this short 4 of 5 paws.
