Peace And War

He was eating his lunch in one of the roadside stalls. He ordered for a simple chicken burger. A large shadow came over that spot in the road. He looked up and saw a cargo plane making its way to the nearby runway...
"Tim, you sure we'll be back alive?"
"Aw Zack, I've promised Betsy that I'll be there for her and Mike."
"You better keep your promise."
"Haha, how about you and Carol?"
"..."
"I've a feeling my sis has a torch for you. Relax, it doesn't burn."
"That's the worst joke ever."
His order came. He looked at it for awhile before tasting it. It was somewhat familiar...
"Hey Zack! You eating your rations again?"
"Yes. Sad that there isn't any chicken burgers though."
"And I thought only chickens eat chicken burgers...haha."
It was his favourite. Chewing his burger, he looked at the traffic in front of him...
"Thats the enemy right in front of us! Zack"
"Oh please why now? It's still so dark."
"What?"
He stopped for awhile. Staring into space, he was lost in his thoughts.
"Tim! Harry's gone! The sentry post has been overtaken!"
"Of all the post, why ours? Fall back!"
Part of the burger was in his mouth. His handphone vibrated. He came back to reality. Carol's meeting him later to fetch their kids. His appetite was lost due to the horrible memories he had.

He limped towards the school across the road while his burger was left there on the table where a crow came over and ate it.

Haha, thanks for the compliments on the header. Thought of it while I was trying to revamp my blog template.
