Coming home for the first time after the war scared Jimmy to death. What would he find of his former life? He knew that it was pure insanity wishing for her to be there, waiting for him as she had promised.
Oh, how he needed to know that someone familiar would be there. This new world was scarier than he had imagined it would be.
It was easy to be tough and brave in combat. The blood covered many things. It covered the wounds. It covered the pain. It covered fear, but, it could not cover the unknown.
That scared Jimmy.
