I really enjoyed reading this; Voldemort behaves exactly as I imagined he would at that age...I also was pleasantly surprised at the way you made making the Horcrux feel.
Wow that was awesome. You characterized Voldemort well, the charm from his youth as well as his disdain for love. You deserved first place. Congratulations.
I think that this was a very intriguing story!
