''what....'' Jai started before getting up and going outside
''Jai wait! let me finish!'' i shouted my eyes starting to tear up
''ill go mercy, but tell me why you said nothing first.'' luke asked me
''okay. 16 months ago... my boyfriend Josh,he,he left for the army. hes still there and his sister told me i shjould see what its like, going on dates ith someone new...incase i lose him. problem is, i keep having to cancell with him because nexpected army wifes meetings get held. there basically were the family/friends of a soldier go to this meeting and they read out the soildets lost. there every week. once a week everyweek. you dont have to go to all of them,but i do, in fear that if i miss one, his name will be read out. Thats why ive been so glum recently. i have one tomorrow. and to be honest im terrified.'' i said tears dripping silently down my face.
''aww, Mercy...'' Luke said, he was crying, he came to me and gave me a big hug
he got up and went outside to jai, then Jai came bvack in and hugged m soi tight i could hardly breathe.
''so thats the important meeting you had, why didnt you tell me?'' he said looking at me,holding my shoulders
