A couple of weeks later I was getting the mail from the mailbox before walking back into the house. I put all the junk mail into a pile before separating Dad’s mail from Mine, Mom’s, and Wyatt’s. I
was looking into my pile and smiled as I got to a letter addressed to Bailey Blondie Williams. I opened the back of the envelope and pulled out the single sheet of paper….
Man that was corny. I must say, it was pretty cheesy. But I liked it. It was cute. When I read your letter out loud like we always do here I got kissy faces from all the guys. I’m just saying
could you tune down the girly. Just saying.
Now where was I going with this letter…..Right now I remember. I miss you too Bailey. More than you will ever understand. You’re so different than any one I have ever met. You let me be me, no
one else does that. That’s why you’re my Blondie. Because I’m your Hollywood.
I told Skylar that you call me Hollywood and he started to laugh. I must say the jokes I have heard since he spread around the platoon that you call me that, well let’s just say I might spend
some time in church when I get home.
Skylar says hi. He’s been sitting there staring at me like I need to get my head checked out for what seems like about 2 hours, but it’s only been about 20 minutes. I told him I was going to
write you back since I got the time, and he just laughed saying to tell you that you promised him cookies, and he wants them. I’m not really sure what he’s talking about really. The heat has been
getting to his head lately. That so we just really likes that magazine that my brother sent him. One or the other. Only god knows which one.
But getting to a serious note here, I do miss those days. When I think it’s not going to get any better, only worse, I just think of those times. I see that I loved that day when I gave Harley
that stuffed dog, I’m happy he likes it, and see that when this is over I got some where to go. Somewhere that I have been fighting to protect. Sleep tight Bailey Williams, this marines here
waiting for your letters. They should be getting the phones working soon so I should get to talk to you soon, but till then I won’t get to hear the sweet sound of your voice letting me to screw
Okay I got to go beat the crap out of that thing I call a twin brother. He is reading over my shoulder saying what I’m writing to all the guys. I hope to hear from you soon. Stay safe
Bailey, I miss you.
I sat down rereading the letter over and over. I closed my eyes as a single tear slipped down my cheek…..
The next couple of weeks weren’t that eventful. School wasn’t that bad, work was fine, everything was….fine. It had started to snow. Like it does every winter so I took pictures and sent them to
Taylor. I was pulling on my boots when I felt a hand on my shoulder. I looked up at Mom. “Bailey maybe you and your brother should stay home.” She said looking out of the window.
“Mom it’s going to be fine. Remember Wyatt got the tire chains on his truck so it won’t be too bad.” She gave me a pleading look.
“Look outside Bailey. It’s going to snow so bad today.” She said as Wyatt came in from outside.
“We know mom but it’s only a half day at school and it’s suppose to start snowing at 2. We should be okay.” Mom sighed giving both of us a defeated look.
“Okay please stay safe you too.” I kissed her cheek.
“We will Mom.” Wyatt opened the door sending an icy blast into the house. Dillon walking into the front room still in his pajamas. A big snow storm was supposed to be coming into the area.
They were saying that we should be getting about 4 or 5 feet of snow. Almost all the schools in North Carolina have been shut down still farther notice, but not ours. Mom took the day off and is
keeping Dillon home from school also. Wyatt and I have to go to school because coach wants all the football players there and I need to finish taking a test from my science teacher, so we are
toughing it and going in. Mom gave a nod and kissed both Wyatt and I on the cheek.
“Stay safe you too. I will have lunch ready when you get back.” We nodded.
“Okay Mom, I love you.” I said walking out pulling my jacket closer to me.
“Love you too Mom.” Wyatt said coming out after me. We both got in his truck and left getting to the empty school in about 10 minutes. “Man it’s deserted.” Wyatt said scrunching up his nose.
“It is come on let’s get inside, it’s freezing out here.” I said as we ran into the school. Wyatt looked around and scrunched his nose up again.
“Dude, no one’s here.” Wyatt took my hand as we started to walk through the empty halls.
“Okay, this is creepy.” I whispered to him causing him to nod in agreement. Wyatt got to the locker room and looked at me.
“Stay here okay I will be right out.” I nodded wrapping my arms around myself as Wyatt went into the locker room. A couple of minutes later Colt stuck his head out the door.
“You may come inside princess.” He smirked at me. I shook my head at him and walked into the locker room as he held the door open for me. I walked into the heated room and looked around at the
“Morning sweetheart, you might want to get comfortable because you aren’t leaving.” The coach said looking at me.......
