Home Front chapter 3Chapter 3
Gloucestershire, June 1944
Somewhere, in the middle of Gloucestershire, between Sheepscombe and Painswick, was a farm. The farm had been in that family for ages and it was going to be in the family for some long, long time.
A young, strawberry-blond woman walked through the land to the stables. She had inherited it from her parents. A few years before the war started, her father was killed when a horse went wild and the animal kicked her father to death. Her mother died not much later, being heartbroken.
"Miss Knight!" suddenly sounded and the woman turned around. "Can I help you?" A seventeen years old girl with bright eyes and reddish hair rushed towards her.
Anita Knight smiled. "Of course you can, Angela." Angela was one of the five girls who were on her farm. When Anita had heard about the children being send to the country side, she decided to help. The people of the church decided that it would be better for the young Knight to take care of five girls, who now all slep
Home Front, chapter 2Chapter 2
London, May 1944
It was time to leave. The brave soldiers took their time to say their last goodbyes to their wives, fiancées and their family.
One of these soldiers was soldier Ray Kowalski. His parents were from Poland, who had fled from the first war. They figured they couldn't be safe in that war and they went to England, hoping for a new future. When they were allowed to come and live in England, they decided, to show them their appreciation, that their only son would go to the army. So he would be serving the country; the country which once helped them when they needed it the most.
"Don't you worry, honey." said Ray and he looked to his young, blond wife. "I will come back."
Anne Kowalski looked to her husband. Just like his family, her family fled out of the Poland too. But that was somewhere in the 1938, when the first signs for a threat of attack were visible. That year, one year before this war started, her family figured that it wouldn't be safe for them to st
Home Front Chapter 1Chapter 1
London, May 1944
It was war. It had been war for the last five years. In 1939, Poland was invaded. It was the start of Adolf Hitler's war against the rest of Europe. But they weren't the only ones in war. Indonesia had been invaded by the Japanese and it didn't take too long before America was threatened as well.
But Great-Britain was one of the few countries who had their own government in their own country. Winston Churchill told the people to keep up hope and asked the men to fight for their king and country. But nobody was sure if everyone would be safe in the United Kingdom. It could be only a matter of time before the Germans would try to take over this island.
War has never been easy, and it wasn't fair too. But it was the duty of these men to fight, so they would keep their wives and children safe.
Lucy was a young woman when she met Andrew, who had little care about the rest of the world. She managed to turn Andrew in a caring man, who served for his count
Without Each other Last Chapter
Anita walked around through the enormous house. It was indeed some time since she was there for the last time. Several years to be exact. She hadn't been there since she and Victor were engaged. Because there was no need to go there.
But she was back now and she wasn't really planning on going to home now. A door opened and she turned around. Behind her was the man who had brought her into the house. "How are you, my dearest Anita?" asked the Italian sculptor as he saw his guest.
"I've felt better." whispered Anita as she looked to Alphonse. She had told him everything. About her marriage with Victor, how she felt that he was cheating on her and about her pregnancy. Of course, Alphonse had still some contacts at U.Z.Z., so he knew what was going on there most of the time.
"Don't you worry. Here in Italy, you don't have to think about your cheating husband or to worry about your child or even the money. You can stay here as long as you want and the baby is welcome here too."
Without Each Other ch 5
Victor came to his work. He didn't sleep well, since Anita didn't come home last night. He felt horrible; he had no idea who could have taken Anita or why someone would take her. There was no note, no phone call, just completely nothing from the kidnapper.
He had taken his sky-bike and flew through the city. If Anita was just mad, and he couldn't really see why she would be mad, he would have seen her somewhere. He went to her favourite spots, but she wasn't there either and no-one had seen her that day.
Victor turned around when he heard that familiar voice. A pitch-dark haired woman walked up to him. "Hello, Blanche." he said as his partner approached him.
Blanche took one look at him and knew that there was something going on. "What's wrong, Victor?" she asked. As a former agent of the French Secret Agency, she knew when someone was hiding something.
"Anita didn't come home last night." said Victor and he looked to his partner. "Do you think we
Without Each Other ch 4Chapter Four
This wasn't the way she wanted to live for the rest of her life. Hoping that her own husband wasn't cheating on her while she was pregnant.
Anita looked out of the window. She was standing in an empty room. It was the room that she and her husband would turn into a baby room that day. They had cleaned the room a few days before, so they would be able to start painting the room as soon as Victor would come home.
But Victor was nowhere near. Instead, he was somewhere in some rainforest, doing something. That was all she could understand from it. She had to call Ray, because Victor's telephone was gone. And all Ray said was that Victor and Blanche had a mission in one of the rainforests somewhere.
"He told me so many times that he would be there for me when I would need him." she whispered to herself. "But when I need him the most, he's away for some mission." It wasn't the first time and it wouldn't be the last time that something like this would happen during her pregnancy.
Without Each Other ch 3Chapter Three
Anita looked to her candles. They were still burning, but it wouldn't take long before they would be completely burned out.
She stood up and took her plate with her. It was the second time that week that Victor didn't come home for dinner. It was the sixth time in two months that he forgot to tell her.
Anita now knew how it would feel for the husbands and wives of the U.Z.Z. agents.
And when he was at home during dinner, he told her everything about Blanche and their missions. Of course, she shouldn't mind it so much, but she had the feeling that he didn't always tell her everything that happened that day. Everything that he did with Blanche.
But that wasn't the worst thing. Anita walked into the kitchen and she threw the rest of her dinner away. While she was washing her plate, she looked to her wedding-ring. It was their anniversary; their fourth anniversary. She couldn't believe it that just on their happiest day of their life, he wouldn't be there wi
All Here For A ReasonI turned onto a shady, well-manicured driveway that, for all intents and purposes, looked harmless enough. Maple trees lined both sides of the street, and a parade of Canadian geese marched across the road to a wide duck pond with a flamboyant fountain. There were blooming crepe myrtles and rose-of-sharons, and as I grew closer to my destination, neatly trimmed gardens with neatly trimmed bushes.
I stopped to let the geese pass. They looked at me; one hissed. I honked my horn and moved around them.
At the end of the road sat a collection of grayish buildings and a number of signs directing me to the appropriate parking lot. "Welcome to Ten Creeks Hospital," said one of them. "Please enjoy your stay." I parked in the visitor's lot. Surely I wouldn't be staying.
I was shaking when I got out of my car. I had spent the morning getting high. One foot in front of the other, flip-flop noises, hot sidewalk. Mulberry and magnolia trees, freshly shaved grass. A bench and pan for smokers. A set o
