"definately has the possiblilty to become something really really great. its already good but i think it could have a few more twists so as to make the plot a surprise adn not quite as predictable. and i think its be a nice idea if you let the ape have more of a say in mans physical characterustuc, like maybe hed think something about the strange leaf and might even try to get him to remove it for manners or something.. i dont know i think strange things! haha.. no but htis iwas a cute piece and well written for what it is but here could be so much MORE you understadn dont leave it at this! good work, love.
