Looking over at his worn, exhausted, tired face, Jack saw that his eyes were closed. He had been through so much... they had been through so much, and in so little time. It seemed like just yesterday she was spouting out mad words at him for not having orders ready fast enough. Swallowing a sob, she leaned over him and whispered, "I love you, you stupid boy."
"But this time it wasn't like the way you lost your phone, or your favorite pair of socks. It wasn't momentary and I wasn't searching for myself. I had given up on that. I had let myself fly away on the wind, never to return." ~E.H. Brown
