A young man in his prime looking forward to taking over the family farm. An avid sportsman who loves rugby football and plays for the local team on weekends. A senior member of the local young farmers organisation. In all a successful young farmer with everything going for him.

Fate takes a hand and in seconds Rufus Blacks promising life is switched off leaving him almost as mindless as a cabbage, destined to be cared for like a child for the rest of his life.

A young widow and trained nurse takes on the job of caring for Rufus Black. Patiently rebuilding the functions of his persona, one brick at a time.

An ambitious doctor who sees Rufus Black as nothing more that a stepping stone to fame and success.

Add these three elements together and stir.

Finally! A glimpse inside the mind of Rufus Black! Poor man. I hope he overcomes this somehow. Very well done!

I'm glad that you've rewritten this chapter. More emotional and heartbreaking!

Wow! I like the conflict! Rufus has a very loving family who truly care about his well-being. Good Job!

I've noticed you changed your paragraph spacing, much better.

Very good. I liked it a lot. I could't really criticise it even if I wanted to.
If you could find the time to look over the first few chapters of my book "I Fixed'm Baby" or one of my short stories it would be greatly appreciated.
Cheers.
