I guess i'll be the first to post a hook. I dont have time to write an entire story all @ once, plus this is still a work in progress 4 me neway.


The iron hissed sharply as I brought it to sit upright on the board. Steam rose quickly from the plate sending intricate spirals of moiture to lick at the low ceilings.
"Well, what do you think?" I asked excitedly, holding up my work. Levi lifted his head from his clenched fist. He had been watching me iron since I started an hour ago.
"Sure as Hell took you long enough," He sighed looking away. I bit my tongue. His cold attitude seemed to bite with less mercy these past
few days. He was lucky I was too excited to throw somthing back at him. And I wouldn't throw words... I thought to myself as I looked at the
hot iron.
"You're just wasting your time," He said standing up and brushing down his uniform with little enthusiasm, "I don't know what you expect
to see in the battle front that led you to think it was worth ironing your uniform."
In a way I felt he was right, but there was something that gnawed at my pride...
"This may the only time I get to wear it..." I breathed still staring at my pressed clothes. I could feel his stare burning on my skin. "I may
not return after tonight."
There was a pressure on my shoulder. Levi's hand squeezed until I was almost positive that he was trying to rip out my shoulder blade.
"You ARE coming back," He said in a harshly low voice, "We both are."
"What makes you so sure, Levi?" I asked.
"What?" He scoffed, "You think you can't lead us to victory just because you're young? Hell with all the old gyser captains objections,
I know FOR A FACT, that you have what it takes to do more than get out us of this battle alive."
I looked away from him. His seriousness was putting too much pressure on me. "Damn you, Levi." I whispered.
"Lead the way Captain," He said in a slightly more upbeat tone. I'm sure he must have given the proper salute, but I couldn't tell through
my tears.

~2 be continued. Please note that this is just one of my short stories. Its not one of the novels I'm writing.
