This Fan-Fic is rated... K i guess (not much going on..)
Okay guys I know this took me forever to do, but I'm going to be away for a while and I figured I should leave something to be remembered by. I was actually dreading writing this... I suck with the cheesy gooey love stuff. So now that this is out of the way I can focus on making Jack a BAD @$$. I know it's short but regardless hope you enjoy. If you haven't already you can read the prologue here.
I woke up to the smell of eggs, turning over in my bed I noticed my fiance missing. I smiled as I sat up and proceeded to get ready for work. Once I was dressed I headed down to the kitchen and was pleasantly surprised to find Haley my fiance sitting at the table eating her own eggs and pointing to mine which were tucked away in the oven to keep warm. Haley was 27 she had light brown slightly curly hair that went down to her shoulder blades. She had pale skin and a small frame that accented her pregnant state. She was due any day now.
"You know if you were hungry, you could have just told me." I said.
"Yeah, but I guess I was just kinda in the mood for good, edible eggs." She taunted me smiling.
I sat there quite for a moment before feeling Haley reach across the table and grab my hand.
"What's the matter Jack?"
"It's just... I-I feel so useless." I said shuffling my synthetic eggs around my plate.
She looked me in the eyes a solemn expression on her face. Then she tried lightening the mood, "Fine Jack, if it means that much to you, you can make me breakfast tommorow." She said forcing a grin.
But we both knew that wasnt the problem, truth is that ever since I was discharged from my military duties, I had been in a constant slump. The marines made me feel like I was doing something important, doing something worth while. But ever since the Iron Army had taken the nations safety into their own hand, "organic" soldiers where no longer needed. In truth I actually applied for a transfer into the Iron Army, but due to a number of injuries that I had obtained during my years of service I was deamed "physically unsuperior".
"Hey, you know you'll always be my little soldier. Regardless of what your job is." She said snapping me out of my own mimd.
"Thanks," I stood from the small wooden table and headed for the door of my run down home. "I have to go, I can't be late for work again."
"Be careful" her voice was full of worry "I'ts getting pretty bad out there."
"Don't worry about it, I'll be fine." I said not looking back. I should have.
