Tommy sighed. It really hurt him to see his twin sister like this, especially when he was the cause of the hurt. The decision to go off to war had been the classic Sophie's choice. Leave and tear his bond with Jess apart. Stay and he would regret not serving his country for the rest of his life.
He tidied up after breakfast and decided to go for a run, just to give Jess some space in the house. A hour later, he was back. He could hear the television from the living room. He cautiously approached.
"Jess, this isn't easy on me either. But as a marine, and with our country at war, I had no choice. We are fighting for our freedom and our future."
He grew silent. He sat down next to her and took her hand in his.
"It's only for 6 months. I'll be back before you know it."
He smiled meekly at her, but knowing it would do no good.
