(Author’s note: Helping friends out with their issues here in Korea. Seems to me like I was sent back to Korea for precisely this moment. Future writings are coming, that are non-fictioneers. Here we go with today’s, though!)
Brave New World
by Miles H. Rost
“It’s been 7 years since I’ve been home. I’m worried about what I’m going to find.”
He looked at his friend, Cord, as he was ready to board his plane at Gate A19.
“You’ve been through hell in Vietnam. You’ve taken some time and got recharged. It’s time for you to go home and see people.”
He looked at Cord sadly.
“But what if they’re like all the others who’ve been spitting on our comrades, pouring urine over them, and all that.”
“I think you’ll find that most of those stories are in the bigger cities. You’re going to Muncie, Indiana. Not happening.”
He breathed a sigh of relief, as he handed his ticket to the gate clerk.
