A subtle oneshot that lets its artwork speak for itself

For what is only a 12-page oneshot, this wasn't so bad, really. The artwork might not exactly be what one would call stunning, but its backstory (the flashback) definitely makes up for that shortcoming. The hidden symbolism, subtle yet very apparent.

A story like this does not need any words to convey a certain message or emotion to its readers. A simple expression is more than sufficient and will leave a much bigger impact than just about any verbal message could.

Only its length bungles the potential of what could have probably been a compelling coming-of-age drama featuring lots of flashbacks, parting, reunion, and of course, true love.
