1. Ripped

Lawrence's P.O.V.

The smell of roasting lamb hits my nose as I wake from my nap. I had been so tired from working in the factory, that I fell asleep on our couch. I head to the kitchen rubbing my eyes.
"Did you have a nice sleep?" My wife Marie asks. She looks so beautiful. Her dark red hair in a very messy ponytail. Ice blue eyes burning into mine. She kisses my cheek and gives me my dinner. I sit at our small wooden table in our kitchen looking out into our backyard. The beautiful scenery always stunned me. Marie comes up to me and gives me a quick peck on the lips. I grab her hands and pull her down to sit on my lap. I attempt to wrap my arms around her big tummy. She has been pregnant for about 6 1/2 months. We are hoping for a little baby girl.
"I love you Marie."

"I love you too Lawrence."

 

Marie's P.O.V.

It's very dark outside. Lawrence and I are on the couch watching the fire crackle in the fireplace. We are both about to doze off when we hear a loud bang outside. Lawrence gets up casually and looks out of the window. Thinking it was just hunting for something I started to dose back off. Thats when I feel to very strong arms lift me up and run. I open my eyes and wrap my arms around my husbands neck. I don't know whats going on and he's scaring me. He sets me back down at the farthest end of the house and grab a blanket off of a chair next to us.
"Whats going on?"I ask worrying.
"Shh! Be quiet!"
"Lawrence I refuse to be quiet! What is going on?!" At that moment there was an abrupt banging at our door only a few feet away. I get up to answer but he pulls me back down.
"Don't move!" He covers us up with the blanket and he tells me to try and fall asleep on his shoulder. I am now crying. Afraid of what is happening. Why won't he tell me? A few minutes pass and the banging seems to have stopped. I lift my head off his shoulder and he entwines our fingers. We start to get up when our door slams open.

"Lawrence Mason?" Strange men enter our house.
"Yes?" He answers.
"You are to come with us. You are to fight in the war." I am in complete shock. Lawrence isn't part of the army. Do they really need to start ripping people away from their families and homes. They grab his arms and tug him away from me.
"NO! NO YOU CAN'T TAKE HIM!" Our fingers still entwined, I try with all my might to stay with him. Thats when I blacked out. I couldn't see anything, I couldn't hear anything, I couldn't feel anything.
