The air was damp, a cloud of smoke covered sunlight, it was dark and dismal. I found myself in an atmosphere of tension. Corpses lie all over the soaked ground with their bodies all full of sludge. Bodies of those innocent soldiers were swamped by the heavy rain, and some adrift in the sea, but still their precious blood sputtering out of their bodies, appeared thick. I felt petrified as I continued to walk past the lifeless bodies, hoping to find my friends. I was unable to identify any of the dead bodies.
My eyes witnessed soldiers who lost their arms and legs, soldiers who sacrificed their live for their country. If they had a chance to speak will they be pleased and blessed for standing up for their country and making their families proud? Or did they feel miserable for leaving everything behind and not accomplishing their obligation?
I couldn’t bear the sharp shrills and shrieks of dying soldiers. A body hit the ground in agony right in front of me. I felt the reflex of hairs on my skin. The attacking never came to an end, bombs and grenades were thrown all over the battlefield and countless number of soldiers were lying still on the ground. The shooting was indescribably brutal, all we wished for was to find a way out and escape and go back home to our families.
I had no weapons to protect myself, so all I could think about was a safe shelter. As I ran desperately looking for somewhere to hide I finally found a safe haven. I felt anxious and lost. I closed my eyes, a flash back of Ally’s picture flashed in my mind. My promise to my girlfriend was the only reason I’m still alive. Even though I doubted whether I’ll see her smile or if I’ll ever feel the warmth of her touch, kiss and love again. I was beleaguered in panic and fear.
Suddenly... BANG! Another bomb. It was not far at all. I lost control, I felt so weak that I couldn’t move a muscle. I tried to stand still but I didn’t make it, I couldn’t hold...
