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…

Kayresia A. Bass: Loved it. Author did some insane research to bring this story to life. A little short for my taste, but an awesome story nonetheless. A few missing periods, and a few missing ending quotation marks, but not enough to take away from the story.Keep going. Add more detail to your future stories and ...

Matthias Hehn: Well written, could hardly put it down. The story is not too far fetched, a drug that messes up basic human emotions, and the effects on people and society as a whole. Hope there will be another book in the same style

larry: I’ m not a professional book reviewer, but this is a good one! I liked it enough to read it non stop!

Kashaf Azmat: The concept is excellent everything is well defined that you can picture the whole scenario which makes you feel connected to the plot and this is the thing that catches my eye and this what i am looking for in every novel.Keep it up

Jason Phang: I'm pretty new to Inkitt (this is only my 4th book) and I must say I've been thoroughly impressed by the quality of the authors here. Remnants of Chaos is an excellently written book that hooks the reader, and doesn't let go. There are some grammatical and typographical errors, but nothing too se...

Profezzer: This is a prequel of sorts to a much larger drama that happens a couple thousand years in the future. The Olafson saga is as good as any I have read and ranks up there with some greats in terms of plot and the construction of her universe. Her one detraction is spelling and punctuation but do n...

mray2174: I did like this story. I would totally recommend it to a friend, but it didn't seem like a book. Your writing style reminded me of a fan fiction writer, always adding in tiny details and making things like "Oh, my name is [name that no one would ever name a child] and here is my life story. Oh, d...

ranaenana: Wonderful plot, great dystopian society, Orwellian, Huxley type. I like the different points of view, I would like a little more information on the characters, but I am only half way through. I am devouring it!!

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.
