can go from awesome to total shit and for me it’s going to change forever. Who am I?
My name is PFC Jameson Carter, and I am a United States Marine, or I was
until a bomb detonated and took half of me with it. The only thing that kept me alive was the
woman I had waiting back for me at home.
being a complete person to being half of something? For me, I have help, but how can I be
anything more than half of what I used to be?
Then when the one person you count on, the person you lived for leaves
you how do you react?
life is easy, she helps repair people like me, the people who lose limbs. Something isn’t the same though, she’s
changed. See I’ve known Samantha for
years. She’s hiding something. Can we help each other through these trying
times in our lives? Or does the fact
remain that we are both irreparable?
Two days later I am back in the physical therapy room, watching as men and women just like me are put back together. I can tell Sam is in her element and that she loves doing this. She sees me and walks over, hands on her hips and smirks,”Ready for day number two?”
“You’re a b****, Sam.” I raise an eyebrow and she smiles.“Well, I’m the b**** your momma warned you about.” She laughs softly and I shake my head.“Wow, don’t do that! You’re not Luke.” I laugh and she slaps my arm. “Hey! Don’t slap me! HELP! She’s beating me!” I yell out and the guy working with another woman on walking with her one leg and prosthetic, laughs.
“You promised me if I face my demon you would do the same. Well, I have been patient. I have tried to wait and see if you would do it, and you haven’t. Jameson, you either face your past and move on so we can have a future, or I am going to walk out of this door and I will leave you to delve into your past. Alone.” Wait, what? Did she just say that she was leaving me?
