Together, they both make their way out of a hospital recently taken over by the Taliban with their enemies hot at their heels.This story shows the bond between a man and his dog. It is an exciting and thrilling read for dog lovers, war story lovers, and lovers of action story novels.“Thank you very much Dad! Thank you so much, Mum!!” I screamed when my father and my mother finally presented me with the promised dog for which I had waited so long already. I was full of joy and I could not contain my excitement. I could not help crying while laughing as I became full of excitement and gratitude. If the way I screamed my gratitude to my parents did not do a good job of showing how much I valued the living gift that was just given to me, then, the way I hugged the little puppy, almost squeezing the life out of the little American Stafford breed definitely showed how much I loved and valued the puppy.””BLESSED ARE THE PEACEMAKERS, FOR THEY SHALL BE CALLED SONS OF GOD ” MATTHEW 5.9or so the movie version would go..“You are lucky to survive, sir. It’s a miracle you survived that long. Somehow, the explosion did not do any real harm to you. It was the shrapnel, your fall and the debris that did you all this damage” the doctor said to me and I was grateful that nothing major had happened to me.But there was a problem. They were talking about cutting Shon’s paw off. I was not going to allow that. The paw was hanging and they said he would need a lot of care if the paw would not be infected. Since the hospital was not a veterinary center, they could not admit him in and start taking care of him. They had only taken care of him because a soldier who was named Jeffery insisted that the dog deserved it. They were basically saying that they could not admit him in and that the only other options would be to cut his paw off, or for me to take care of the dog on my own. I insisted that I would take care of Shon myself and told them that there would be no cutting of anything.” dog, war, action, friendship, short story, best friend, genre fiction, military, family life, family story, a movie version, breeds, an American staffordshier, bravery, self-sacrifice, braveheart, American soldiers
Sadly, love is usually right in front of us but rarely seen. We expect it to be revealed in some Hollywood fashion, like skyrockets, or two lovers running towards each other in the rain, or some other realistic way. However, it usually arrives in a more subtle way. It quietly enters our life and slowly fills our vary being. Until one day, the person you didn’t think had much of a place in your heart becomes the very reason why your heart is beating. That is the true and genuine love we search for.That is how is was for Christian Emerson. He searched for true love his entire life and found it in the last place he ever expected. Christian found love in Margaret Elizabeth Greene. He didn’t realize it at the time, but the day they met would change his life forever.
