As the commanding officer, Alex has orders to remain in Australia for the second part of the tour. It is night time, and she has finished her duties for the day. She lies in her tent, writing a letter to be brought home to Katherine. CLICK HERE for next chronological story.

Oh, poor Alexand and Katherine. Are you ever going to give them some happiness, darling? (I’m not complaining — their sadness and struggle is always a compelling read.)
Thanks Helena, they were definitely meant to be together. I make myself sick sometimes!
Poignant and poetic.
I’m getting very greedy Cheryl in wanting more.No matter how long, these pieces always end too soon for me.

Hi David, thank you, yes, I wish I had more time, so I could release more in a week. I’m glad you’re enjoying reading.
Hi Cheryl! This is like torment. I want to read next week’s issue now…
Hi, Richard, thank you, yes, I really want to release more in a week. If I didn’t have a day job I definitely would. I’m glad you’re enjoying this series.
You’re welcome. Yes, I know what you mean about a day job – there’s only so much we can fit into our day.
such compelling writing, Cheryl. thank you
Thank you, Stacy!
My heart goes out to these separated lovers, they, you speak to so many of us who can’t be with those we love. Such wonderful writing and drawing as always Cheryl…
Thank you, John! I certainly know how Alex feels too.
.. scrunch up another sheet of paper…; I believe, many of us have scrunched up quite a few letters. The worst part is, the person who these words were meant to will never get them to read.
That’s very true!
