This is a short story I have been writing, and wanted to share with you all. If you enjoy it, I will continue to post it until the end. I hope you all enjoy it. Thank you.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

It was 4:23 am, and Tina had been jolted awake from a sound sleep, finding herself sitting up in bed,
her covers bunched together in a ball beside her. with just the light from her alarm clock,
which illuminated the entire room with a soft green glow.
She sat there now wide awake, scared, and a bit disoriented.
Her heart pounding, panting as if she had just ran a mile.
Wiping the tears from her eyes realizing she must have been crying in her sleep again.
Feeling her eyes well up again with tears, and the over whelming feeling of loneliness drops her forward
putting her face in her hands breaking down in tears, she can smell a hint of his cologne in her hands.
She whispers his name softly........Paul.

It had been 11 years since Paul had made her the promise.
The promise that he would return to her in six weeks. Paul had always been a straight shooter,
and Tina knew that if he had promised her, he would never go back on his word.
She also knew this was a dangerous assignment. Being a journalist is what Paul loved,
almost as much as he loved Tina, but they both knew the danger involved, covering a story over seas.
Tina had begged Paul to let someone else take this assignment, telling him she had a bad feeling
about him going into the city of Telaviv. It was dangerous times in Iraq,
and the city was being attacked around the clock. Paul just looked at her with that same
half silly smile she fell in love with in High school, and said Babe, what kind of journalist would I be,
if I didn't take an assignment, because it may be dangerous? Tina knew he was right, she also knew
Paul's stubborn behavior, and that's what made him, the journalist he was.

Tina had not had much sleep in the past eighteen days, with Paul being in Iraq.
Even though Paul would call Tina, when ever he could, Tina always found herself a bit more anxious
for Paul to return home. Especially when she can hear people talking, and sometimes yelling
in the phone when he called. Now sitting at the dining room table, slowly picking at her breakfast, and
staring blinklessly at her morning eggs that have already gone cold, still slowly chewing her last bite of food,
is startled as the phone begins to ring. She answers the phone, "hello" the connection is poor, and the
familiar voice on the other end is unclear. "Paul?" "hello?" He replies "they are taking us someplace safe
for now...until they can get us out of here." Tina more aware now of the danger that Paul was in,
"Does this mean you are coming home?" "Soon, yes soon" Paul replies. Just then, she hears a man yelling,
but can not make out what he is saying. Holding the phone to her ear, she can now only hear the silence of a
disconnected phone call.
