A Hero's Lament ~ By ~ Rhiannon Stalls
A Roleplay by americapatriot99 and marymarysmith75 on AIM
Ana was just getting home from school, and she put her things down by the couch, then went to the computer chair and sat down, opening up AIM. She smiled when she saw that Spirit was on, and clicked on his username and a conversation box opened up.
alykitkat16(Ana) ~ hey
hartfordairforce(Spirit) ~ hey
what's up? (3:11 PM)
alykitkat16 ~ eh, not much....can I get on webcam with you? (3:12 PM)
hartfordairforce ~ sure, but I'm still in my air-force jacket
alykitkat16 has sent a video-chat request. Accept or Decline?
hartfordairforce has accepted your reqest.
The video-chat screen came up for both of them.
Ana sighed, listening to her parents talk as they were getting ready to leave for the plane to Afghanistan.
Spirit smiled, laying on his bed, looking at Ana as she took the moment to look to the hallway, her parents coming into the living room.
"Ana. We're going..We love ya..Bye.", they both said before walking out.
Ana sat back in the chair, then began to cry hysterically.
Spirit sat up, then typed,
hartfordairforce ~ Ana, I'm coming over, stay where you are. (3:20 PM)
hartfordairforce has signed out.
Spirit ran downstairs and out the front door, going to his truck, then drove off. Minutes later he arrived at Ana's house, and he got out and went to the front door, knocking.
Ana opened it, still crying.
Spirit hugged her tightly after he came in. "Ana, what happened?...".
"M-my parents just left for...th-the plane to Afghanist-stan....", she said softly.
Spirit looked down. "Oh...I didn't know Ana...I'm sorry...".
"It's okay...", she said softly. She had begun to calm down, but yawned and lay against him.
"Would it be a good time to go?...", he said, smiling a little.
Ana nodded and stood up straight. "I'll see you tomorrow....", she said softly as he opened the door.
