Brothers in arms

He was only 39 when he died or that was what they said At one point he was there driving down the dry sand road and them with flash of light he was gone. With one road side bomb it was all over. Ironic for man who said he was fast as lightning i thought while i put my cigarette out and looked over the ruined city . Brothers in arms until the end no one left alone he always said. Now i’m left alone to this god forsaken country and he is gone or is he? It has been 3 weeks from that day and i still see him . I see him walking down the road with clothes hanging on him, why has he stopped taking care of himself? He used to take so good care of him and his uniform. i'm kind of worried, i think i’ll talk to our commander about it .Visited commander today, he listened to my story and suggested i should take extra time and go home for couple of weeks. But why? there is nothing wrong with me. I'm worried about my friend and he would love to send me home for break? Why doesn't he offer that to Mike ? when there is clearly something wrong with him

This morning mike was at breakfast tent . I wonder if he is eating enough he seem to be so pale and his eyes where deep inside his head. Why did not anyone else see how he was .

At evening we had target practice . He was there like at right time as clock. “Good old Mike” i thought. He never fails his Brothers by being late. But why he was looking so sad and just observed others? He has changed and i just cannot sit back and see him go through that and do nothing

They did not believe me . Not the commander, not nurses or doctor that old bastard. They said i would be fine if i just took couple of weeks off and got some rest and maybe talked with someone.. PTSD – they said it was. They told that after that kind of thing it was no wonder my mind did take vacation of it’s own .

I have no idea what do they mean. Why do they say Mike is gone? He is here, he has always been here. He is different now, quiet , sad and maybe dirty but he is here. I should accept he is dead but how could that be.

I mean he is here now while i’ m driving my car. I cannot see good cause of all the tears and anger i feel so he is here even now when i face the minefield that is right before of us. He is here to push the accelerator while i close my eyes and get ready for the Bang of the year. Always Brothers in Arms he says…

Tiffany Thomson: This story is not something I would normally pick up and read but I'm so glad I did, I wasn't able to put it down and my husband was yelling at me at 3am to put it down and go to bed (just waited for him to doze back off before picking it back up) I really hope Natalie brings out another book eit...

Roy Jenner: I was pleased to join the action where this B-17 was limping back across the English Channel defying all odds. Obviously written by a person more than familiar with the interior of the Flying Fortresses that were familiar in the skies of Southern England during World War 2. Plenty of action here ...

snowview03: This is the first book I have read on this app and I loved it! When I read the title I thought about the hunger games, but this novel is so much more. Some book have a comparison between other books that fallow like premises so i will do my own: Arena has the compellingly emotional stresses and t...

Bri Hoffer: I couldn't put it down!! The characters are all incredibly likable, and it's so descriptive you can see, smell, and feel thier surroundings. Great story, and very well written. I cannot wait for follow up stories. there were a few grammatical errors, but nothing that I could move right over.

BFIrving: A first rate story and well crafted, the blend of horror and action worked very well indeed and had me turning page after page. When not actually reading it, I found myself thinking about it which is always a good sign.There are quite a few grammatical and spell-checker errors but nothing anothe...

Emperor2000: I joined Inkitt and downloaded this book following a friend who has been on here sometime recommending it. After they spoke about it a bit, I thought why not give it a go. Initially I only expected to read a few chapters, as I have little time to spend reading (not as much as I like). However I c...

harry142018: This story was gripping and very professionally written. With lots of twists and slight of hand tricks, the author deceives the reader until finally showing their cards at the end. With several subplots all intertwining to create the main plot, this really is an interesting and engaging read.

thePeeJ: aced it boiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiii...

Chevonne Prinsloo: I loved this book.. I didn't want to stop reading it! just my kind of book... I really love how the plot of the story carries along. I hope there are more books to follow after this one! I like the way she describes how Rogue is feeling and the way she shows the emotions going through Rogu. I als...

Deleted User: This is a very clever story in the style of 19th century (and turn of the century) Gothic writing, very reminiscent of Stevenson's The Body Snatchers or even of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde (less so of Frankenstein itself, since the author is more minimalist than Shelley's florid, Romantic rhetoric). ...

Deleted User: I loved this story. It was so great that I did not expect it to be this awesome. I swear to you this deserves more than just 5 stars. Beyond amazing. Kept me wanting more and I felt exactly like Emma felt while reading. Although in the beginning I did not expect anything to happen. Then, when som...

maewilde25: I liked this, though it dragged on for over 200pages and heaven knows I did not expect the plot twist in the middle. David being Cristiãn. I was wondering when he would show up and didn't know he was there all along. it looks like there should be a sequel, please let there be a sequel. I know the...
