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…

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.

skippybash12: This story has engaging characters that you care about and a plot that is unpredictable and exciting. It is well written with a believable voice. Great weekend escape and if there was a sequel available I would buy it today -

Dina Husseini: 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...

Dina Husseini: It was a great hook. I do not like reading scifi because they end up being like all the rest but this one kept me wanting more.

Leah Brown: This was an amazing read! I was hooked from the very first chapter, holding my breadth to see what would happen next. The characters are rich and vibrant, and the world Danielle has created is fascinating. If you love YA, you MUST read this book. Such a smart, brilliant debut novel. I loved it!

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...

C.K. Bachman: Just read the first chapter. Love how the main character thinks and is conflicted over his wife and the trickery he uses on her.

Alexis Dredd Zarcal: Overall, it's a rather thrilling piece, merging superstition, psychology, slice of life, and the usual Japanese risque fare. All the elements have rhyme and reason in being placed together.The respective background stories of the characters involved so far also give a sense of flair and thrill.I'...

Jason Phang: The author embarked on a path less taken and focussed on the bombers instead of the fighter pilots that usually were considered the stars of the air force. An amazingly​ written book highlighting the ups and downs of war, the internal turmoil of a high ranking officer getting himself into the thi...

Pablo Rojas: Love the story, at the end it is a western story, simple, yet giving hints and pieces of the situation that is happening all over ravencroft´s universe. easy to read and always keeping with the main stream story I want to keep reading about, Olafson´s adventures.

Nichole P. Conard: The characters are well created and pull you along through the story. The plot is well thought out, with some interesting turns. I was unsure what was going to happen, several times in the story, which is a grand point, as who wants to know they have figured out the story correctly...once they ge...

Laraine Smith: This should be a movie! You are talented! It is that good! Keep it up! It is visual! It grabbed me! Don't give up!

Jean Tryon: As a beta, I found this story outstanding!! Plot, grammar, phraseology, etc Rachel gives us it all. She takes the story into the future from where due South ends. She is an exacting and thoughtful author.

263Adder: Okay so I adore this story. I only knocked one star off plot for historical inaccuracies because I'm a bit of a stickler for that. The ending broke my heart though, considering you already changed history couldn't you (SPOILER) change it a bit more and have them together!!!! I want an alternative...
