Conversation With A Demon

In the lightlessness of his room, Andrew lays across his bed on his back, his legs hanging just slightly over the edge. With his face cupped in his palms he could feel each breath brush warmly against his lips and cheeks. It had been more than two months since he was contacted by what he believes to...

Fighting In The Light

From just a short distance to the south a quick burst of shots cut through the silence. They were quickly followed by another burst from across the street accompanied by the screams of a wounded German. All at once the quiet vanished and a flurry of shots filled the air. Mike pushed open the door... Sign in to see full entry.

Preparing For The Attack

The next hour and a half seemed to fly by, the four comrades taking some time to sit back and relax. At 10:30, they all got suited up to head out for Bascom Avenue, and their first attack during the day time. With all of their gear equipped and in check they left out the back door of Mike’s house...

In Broad Daylight

The group stayed awake for a few hours, talking about this and that while cleaning and checking their weapons. Mike felt glad that he had kept his M14 while the others had taken the Steyr rifles from the Germans. It maybe weighed a few extra pounds, but he preferred the solid feel and dependability....

“Jesus H. Christ.”, Was all that Mike could manage. Tearing down the street, the three transport vehicles made their way to the exposed American fighters. “Come on guys, let’s get the hell out of here.” Tom called to the others. The four darted across the street, passing up Ray who was calling out... Sign in to see full entry.

Terror of War

The two trucks rolled along Bascom Avenue, picking up speed as they made their way down the long stretch. They looked to be unremarkable military transport vehicles; a large flatbed truck with a wire spine draped in canvas. It became apparent to Mike that both of the trucks looked identical, making...

Meeting Up

In the distance the group could hear the sound of gunfire from the north, the opposite direction of they were going. They smiled to each other, feeling a bit proud to be a part of what was looking like it might become something big. They made their way through backyards, jumping over fences and...

Hopeful News

After a hearty meal of pancakes, bacon and eggs, the four comrades sat out on Mike’s front porch; a freedom they all feared they wouldn’t enjoy for much longer. It was about 10AM at that point. Mike and Skip had a cigarette while Tom and Robert talked, quietly, about their plans for the evening.... Sign in to see full entry.

Returning Home

The summer heat had not yet fell across San Jose, California, and the cool night air bit at the five men as they hopped over the last fence, emerging once again on Stratford Drive. They came out at a three way intersection, and hurried across the street to find the cover of shadows. Listening for a... Sign in to see full entry.

Casualty

Skip took one last drag from his cigarette and threw it down, Mike following his lead and dropping his to the ground as well. Robert and Tom went first, pulling themselves up and over the fence, quickly disappearing from sight. Joe and Cody followed behind them, jumping up and scurrying over. As...
