Story Help

hey ladies for my hobby i have choosen to write becuase i love it lol here is what i have so far any ideas are greatly appreciated ...

            Standing with her back to him, she can feel the tears beginning to form slowly in her eyes. “Are you ready “he whispers? Amber slowly turns around seeing the man she loved, but today he looked different. Was it because he knew that Amber wasn’t ok, or was it because he was wondering how Amber could make it this next year. “Ready as I can be” she responded, trying to hide the anguish in her voice.

            The airport was only a twenty minute drive, but today it seemed as if it would stretch on forever. The sound of the rain pounding against the hood of the car could never compare to pounding in her heart. As Matt pulled the car into the lot, she prepared herself for what was next.

            “You know I love you with everything that I have right?” he asked. Amber didn’t even have enough strength to whisper a response. “Guess we better head in.” Amber found herself holding onto his hand like she did when they where high school sweet hearts. Things had been so much simpler then, why were they not still that way she wondered.

            As they walked down the terminal Amber began to remember life before the war. When their daily lives were consumed with star bucks, business meetings, and dinner together at night, now life had become about deployments, training, weeks in the field. Her trip down memory lane was cut short when she heard “Flight 95 is now boarding”. Was it really time to let him go already?

            “Well I guess this is it” she said turning away so he couldn’t see the pain in her eyes. “Remember it’s not goodbye, its only see you later. Here I want you to read this when you get home, and not a moment sooner.” Matt slipped an envelope into Amber’s hands. And with that she gave him one last kiss and hug, and watched him walk even long after he was out of sight.

            As she got into the car she felt the envelope in her pocket, what was it about? She reminded herself that Matt requested she not read it until she reached home. As she pulled into the drive way, she realized that home wasn’t the same anymore something was missing. The trees were waving in the wind as she opened the door, and the smell of his cologne rushed her nostrils. Sitting down at the table she removed the envelope from her pocket and began to read.


            Right now you are probably sitting at the table with your pink mug full of star bucks fresh brewed coffee, thinking about why I had to leave. I wish that there were words that I could say to make you feel better, and to easy the pain you are feeling. The only thing that I know to say is that I love you, and will be home before you even have time to miss me. O honeys don’t forget this isn’t goodbye.

                                                                                    Love you.


Amber laid the letter on the table and whipped away the tears from her eyes. This was the Matt she remembered.
