Village News- Night Before the Attack


Mark has now gathered the courage to open the envelope. He received this letter from Sarah after 4 months. Normally it only takes 2 months for mail to reach the soldiers in the battlefield. Enclosed in the envelope there is something else. He opens it, a small leather packet falls on the ground. He opens the packet and finds broken wedding rings. He freezes for a few seconds. He knows what it means. He does not have to read the letter. Meanwhile, the ‘postman’ comes.
“No, I do not have anything to send back”, he says and turns his back before the postman could read his face. He is a soldier. He has a battle to fight tomorrow.
