Doom and Denial

 

Gunfire. We all dive for cover and then that voice. Impossible.


"This is Colonel Decker of the US Army. You are completely surrounded."

 

Cover the shock. "Ah no kidding." Don't let it show.

 

BA is explaining. Hannibal and Decker mixed it up in the DOOM club. Yeah, good memories. Me pounding Decker, him smacking me right back. My men, his men. Everybody in the room in the end.

 

"I didn't like the way he bombed Cong hospitals like it was his favourite sport."

 

Sure, thatís a good enough reason. An understandable reason. I didn't like it. He deserved a beating for that.

 

It wasn't about what we'd done the night before.

 

Found each other in a bar and talked. Both had rough missions. Lost too many men, seen too many dead kids. On both sides. Talked and drank. Drank and talked. Then, in a dreamlike, alcoholic haze, hired a room upstairs.

 

No, the fight wasn't about that. Couldn't be. Because that never happened. Couldn't possibly have happened. Not men like us.

 

When we fought I knew it was right. This was the natural way for men like us to interact. Fists on flesh, grunts of pain. Not stroking, not moaning. Not begging for the momentary oblivion of the only feelings that could erase all that other pain.

 

A bone snapped under his fist and I remember feeling a sickening satisfaction right along with my agony. This was natural. This was the only way I would ever let him touch me again. Not that I wanted him to touch me again. I never wanted to see him again. If I never saw him again then it never happened.

 

That was the deal.

 

And now he's outside. Chip firmly installed on shoulder and something to prove.

 

Going to get rough from here.

 

 

End
