Home Front Chapter 4Chapter 4
Gloucestershire, July 1944
The beautiful weather and the way people lived made the day look like there wasn't a war going on.
That was, if you didn't count the little changes the war had made for the people who didn't fight in the front-line. Men were a rare sight in towns and women took over the jobs of the men.
But also the long queues in front of the store. Women were waiting for the supplies to arrive, and it was the best way to socialize.
Anita Knight and Anne Kowalski both walked to the store. Anita didn't have bread any more and she needed some other important things. So Anita and Anne joined the queue and waited for their turn.
"Miss Knight!" suddenly sounded and Anita turned around. Behind her, an elderly woman approached her. "How are you?"
"I'm fine, Mrs. Hanson. The girls are a great help to me." Mrs. Hanson was the doctor's wife. She knew almost everything that happened in the village and knew everyone very well. According to her, that was the job of the d

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."
EasterRemember what you love,
you with sand in your teeth
and the feral burn of hunger
in your eyes.
God sends his regrets.
He made you grasping and slow,
in a late hour
when the wine washed low.
Remember what you love.
Fall to your knees in the toss
and the swell, quell
the appetite of the cold black sea.
Beg blessings for your home
and the salt-sick trees.
Reach what lies near:
the fat-faced child, the sweet-soft lamb;
tether the tantrum, trickle the blood.
Offer psalms to what is holy,
whisper the name of what you love
as it bobs in the bleak mad sea.
Keep in Touch!
