Aren't you scared?
I didn't know.
I had to think about it.
I watched the dark dessert horizon, lit up with artillary.
Non-stop... brighter than...I don't know what...as far as the eye could see... loud and unrelenting.
No, I'm not.
I was just as suprised and confused by this as he was.
Yeah, were in a war! Your really not scared?
No, it's exciting. I know, it's crazy.
I just can't believe I'm really here...wathcing this.
No one's ever know what this is like.
I'm really here...wathcing a real live war...it's like surreal or somethin'. Like I'm not really here.
He shook his head and walked away.
I was fascinated.
I don't know how long I stood there, absorbing the sights and sounds, wondering how the hell I landed myself there.
The next morning it was over.
There's definitely something to be said for taking the road less traveled.
