"jenkins, get your ass up." andrew opened his eyes slowly before releazing he was laying on the floor of his room with beer cans laying around him. slowly pulling his body up onto his feet he leaned against the wall for balance before seeing one of his members from his unit lay a letter on his bed. rubbing his eyes andrew slowly dragged his lifeless body to his assigned bed, and picked up the letter in his hands. he slowly turned it to the back and ripped the back of it before pulling out the letter of leave. he didn't understand how that was even possible knowing that he had been to the board many many times before, but now that his drinking binge seemed to be effecting his work ethics they agreed to send him home. he sat the letter on his bed before running his hand through his hair knowing that he had messed things up to the point of no returned. he loved alaska, and he knew she was the one for him. but now he had screwed it up with his drinking habit. he moved off his bed and folded the letter before sliding it into his back pocket. he knew his ride would leave in a few hour but he had to get packed, and have at least one last meal with his unit before he left.
he headed outside of the sleeping quaters and headed into the mess hall and sat at his table with his unit. he told them that he was leaving, and most of them weren't suprised. andrew wasn't stable in there eyes specially knowing he was still bit of a kid in side. in his mind that was the problem with bring people into the army without them wanting to go. yes it was needed but to andrew it seemed like a waste of money mostly, and just a waste of his time. he knew that he never was gonna have enough for college that was sure, but he spend all his money on a house, and to send alaska to college so she didn't have to get drafted. he knew her parents would pay for it if she would leave andrew, but for some reason she didn't. now that andrew was sober he knew he was a bit of an asshole, and wanted to be the old andrew he was with her. he was excited to be a father more than anything. he hugged everyone and shaked hands with his commanders and apologized for his slaziness. they simply told him that they understand the fear of dying because of someone you love, and all that stuff. heading back to his quaters he packed his stuff.
once he was done packing he slung his back strap over his arm before heading out to the car that would drive him to the airport. he got into the car and waved good bye to the people who were stronger than him and would stay and fight for there country. andrew had to fight for something more, and knew that he would rather be with alaska knowing that it wasn't right to make her go through it this much alone. he hated himself mostly becaues he was an asshole and a jerk and everything her parents ever said about him. he couldn't keep it in his pants and he didn't know what she stayed with him. in the car ride to the airport andrew just laid his head against the glass window and sleep for a little while before he got onto the plan. he was flying back to an airport close to his hometown, but he still had to drive a little way. he was in his military clothes still knowing that he wasn't able to change and heading to the rent a car place the business lady smile, and thanked him on serveral occasions for defeating the county.
nodding lightly he took the keys and moved to his rented out car before throwing his bag in the back of it and driving. he remembered his way around the town easy, and his finding his house wasn't as hard as he orginally thought it was gonna be. reaching it he parked on the curb before breathing lightly then getting out of the car, and grabbing his bag. he headed to the front door, and knocked on the door. he didn't tell alaska he was coming home knowing he wasn't suppose to but was glad to be home.
