    First of all I want to thank my friends for recommending me this short story because I absolutely loved it How is it possible that a 28 pages short story could make me feel like I ve read a full novel in the space of an hour Anton is an impoverished farmer visiting the market to buy an ox, but who instead returns home with a slave, intended to go to the rock mines and spend the last of his days there chained to a rock It was a stupid decision because an ox would have helped him with the plow a First of all I want to thank my friends for recommending me this short story because I absolutely loved it How is it possible that a 28 pages short story could make me feel like I ve read a full novel in the space of an hour Anton is an impoverished farmer visiting the market to buy an ox, but who instead returns home with a slave, intended to go to the rock mines and spend the last of his days there chained to a rock It was a stupid decision because an ox would have helped him with the plow and live through the winter, but his heart was weak because the slave reminded him of his former lover Now he has two mouths to feed and no ox to help him farm.This is their story, how the master and the slave work together side by side to build a future We are left with a HFN, but I couldn t have been happier with the ending Pick this up, it takes you less than an 1 hr to read it and it s beautiful It s not your average master slave story because Anton is very kind to Petre I didn t even feel he truly saw him as a slave When an author conveys so much in less than 50 pages it s a 5 stars from me

    Beautiful This short story is powerful in its gentle poignancy and grace If you have seen the quiet and lovely movie, God s Own Country, you will recognize similar themes of loneliness, a need for shared intimacy, and a bright hopefulness for the future I was enthralled.Thank you to my GR pals for recommending it You guys made my day with this heartwarming story.

    A beautiful storyAnton, an impoverished farmer , goes to town to buy an ox Instead his buys Petyr, a slave who looks like Anton s dead lover.A beautiful, quiet story about trust and love Not about falling in love at all It s set maybe 2000 years ago, maybe longer, maybe a fantasy world Because there s no history here, no culture, no philosophy, just toil and hunger and the hot sun And growing affection and need Sure I d have liked a longer story about these two but it isn t rushed, it s pe A beautiful storyAnton, an impoverished farmer , goes to town to buy an ox Instead his buys Petyr, a slave who looks like Anton s dead lover.A beautiful, quiet story about trust and love Not about falling in love at all It s set maybe 2000 years ago, maybe longer, maybe a fantasy world Because there s no history here, no culture, no philosophy, just toil and hunger and the hot sun And growing affection and need Sure I d have liked a longer story about these two but it isn t rushed, it s perfect

    This author has the knack for beautifully drafting the tender but tension filled push and pull dance between benevolent master and cautious slave until they meet in the middle as men A somber mood and subtle acceptance of their individual circumstances and each other mark Anton and Petre s coming together As their guards come down and vulnerabilities strengthen their bond, the lingering loneliness recedes and put the protagonists and reader at ease This isn t a romance It is an understandi This author has the knack for beautifully drafting the tender but tension filled push and pull dance between benevolent master and cautious slave until they meet in the middle as men A somber mood and subtle acceptance of their individual circumstances and each other mark Anton and Petre s coming together As their guards come down and vulnerabilities strengthen their bond, the lingering loneliness recedes and put the protagonists and reader at ease This isn t a romance It is an understanding, a companionship A quick easy read that could definitely be expanded on, but is satisfying all the same And currently it s free on

    This is a good short romance, sort of a slice of life set in a fantasy world Both characters do a lot of introspection, but the writing is also fairly atmospheric I really felt the bleakness of Anton s isolated farm and the difficulty of his life His relationship with Petre is extremely understated, but I believe they ll have a happy future together I ll definitely seek outof this author s work.

    Beautiful Wow this was beautiful in its simplicity Not a lot going on but it feltpoignant I do wish we had a less abstract ending but maybe that s the beauty of it It spelled out a lot of possibilities so how it ends is up to each reader Beautiful
