Gently, Sweetly Home Again - Part 10

by Allen Henriquez

 

“Yes Wilbur you’re right all is fair, and speaking of love and war how is the battle going?” Zack asks Wilbur then looking over at Elise awaiting their reply

“Marriage isn’t a battle it’s an understanding.” Elise

“Yes that’s it, an intelligent approach to living.” Wilbur states with a smile

“Wonderful.” Zack states not caring at all what they say, after which he sips his drink and looks around the bar and after a few moments asks

“Wilbur, I lost track of Nate, after my last deployment, have you heard from him?” Zack

“Nate?” Wilbur

“Nathaniel Rockland we went in together, but he got deployed before me, we wrote letters, talked on the phone, but then lost track.”

“Yeah the guy you went in with we called him Rock Man. Hey he’s back, but went off the deep end.” Wilbur

“Man, no good. Where’s he living at now?” Zack

“Prospect Park near the museum.” Wilbur

“Prospect Park, outside?” Zack

Wilbur nods his head yes.

“In the park, like a bear.” Wilbur
