The army was my life. I lived, and breathed the overseas air as if I was born to do it. I was deployed more than I was home, and after losing my parents, it was easier that way. I took over guardianship of my sister Zoe, and as soon as she turned eighteen, I enlisted. On the rare occasion that I did come home, it was to see Evie. Evangeline Perez was my best friend, and before my first deployment, I'd taken her virginity. Since then, whenever I was home we hooked up. We had a no strings attatched, friends with benefits relationship for years. Until one day, her phone number was suddenly disconnected, her apartment was empty, and I was left with a slew of questions, and no answers. When I couldn't find her, I assumed she had met someone and moved on, but then, two years later, I saw her again... and she wasn't alone.
