*Beka’s POV*

I walked back to my house with a small smile on my face, only to have it fade when I walked to the living room to find my mother in tears, Max hugging her tightly. Max has been my dad’s best friend since high school, and they served in the army together; that’s when I knew, right when I saw my mother in tears and Max here, that my dad was gone. Tears were staring to brim my eyes. “No… no, this can’t be happening!”

“Rebekah, I’m so sorry.” Max said, letting go of my mother, and coming over to me. He tried to pull me into a hug, but I flinched back.

“NO! Don’t! He’s not gone, he can’t be gone!”

“Rebekah, there was a raid, he didn’t make it out, I’m so sorry.” He tried pulling me into a hug again, but again, I flinched back. I ran up to my room, tears blurring my vision. “Rebekah!” Max called after me, but I just slammed my door, leaning back against it and sliding down to the ground. I pulled my knees to my chest and sobbed into them. I heard my phone ringing from across the room, but didn’t get up. I didn’t want to talk to any one; I didn’t want to be around any one. I just wanted to be alone. He couldn’t be gone, he couldn’t be. I hauled myself over to my bed and crawled ender the sheets, curling up into a ball. I eventually cried myself to sleep.

I woke up the next morning too knocking at my door. “Who is it?” I asked; my voice raspy, and cracking from all of the crying.

“Beka, it’s Harry, can I come in?” He asked, I could hear worry in his voice.

“Umm…” I smoothed my hair out, trying to wipe away some of the tear stains that I could feel on my cheeks. “Ya.”
