The captain assembled the company in a large hanger and had all the men stand at attention.
“We have need of five good men. I could just pick the men that I’d feel would be best for the job except there’s a very good chance none of you will make it back alive. Because of that, I want to give you all the opportunity to volunteer. This mission is of vital importance. It must be carried out. However, as stated earlier, there is every likelihood that whoever goes will not be able to make it back. If I can’t get at least five men, I will pick. I’ll give you all until 0800 and then I need your answers.”
“I volunteer.” said a voice.
“Who said that?”
A young private stepped out of line. “I did, sir. I volunteer.”
The captain walked over to him and looked the young man over. “How old are you, son?”
The captain nodded. “Alright. Go see the lieutenant. You’re dismissed until tomorrow. Say you’re goodbyes if you have any.”
The captain watched as the young man marched off. He had just sent him to his death and he knew it. That was the price of having brass. The captain turned to the others. “Anyone else?”
There was silence and a lot of nervous looks. They all knew what it meant to be captured by the enemy. Usually, no quarter was given. If you died fighting to your last breath, they would only cut off your head as a trophy. If you surrendered they would torture you to death for fun, and then hack what was left of you to pieces to feed their animals.
“Alright. Well, like I said, you all have until tomorrow at 0800 to make up your minds. I need four more men. Dismissed.”
Don was taken off this normal schedule of duties. This wasn’t his normal off day so he didn’t have anything immediately planned. The only thing he could think to do was actually go say goodbye.
He sat on a bench outside the barracks and looked down at his boots. Would he be able to do it? Just an hour earlier he would have said she could wait in that damn hotel until the war ended but now he was starting to think that he’d have to just go on down there and see her.
“Dude, what have you done?” said a voice as a hand came to his shoulder. Tom Black sat down next to him. Don looked over at him with surprise. Of all the people to express concern over Don’s wellbeing, Tom was not one of them.
“My country needs me. That’s why I signed up.”
“You can still go change your mind.”
“No I can’t. I already signed the forms.”
“You did? Do you know where you’re going?”
“No. Doesn’t matter. I’ll go where they tell me to go and do what they tell me to do. What do you care anyway?”
“Yeah, I shouldn’t care. But I do, man.”
“Well, don’t think I did this to get away from you. I have my own reasons.”
“No, man, I didn’t say that.”
“And stop getting all mushy on me.”
“I’m not. But listen, all that stuff I did. I did it to try to toughen you up.”
“You don’t have to apologize.”
“Look, man. I know maybe it seemed to you like I was a jerk but …”
“And now you’re turning into a woman.”
“I was doing it to protect you. If I didn’t bully you one of the other guys would have.”
“Yeah, cause that’s real mature.”
“Whatever man. I’m just coming to make peace with you.”
“Fine. Peace. You done? I got goodbyes to give.”
“Yeah, I’m done. Go. Go say your goodbyes.”
Don didn’t move.
“Hey, private. On your feet. That’s an order.”
“Sorry corporal. Until I ship out tomorrow, I don’t have to obey your orders or anyone’s orders. On top of that the Mps can’t even arrest me.”
“So this is really serious.”
“Yeah. Must be.”
Don got to his feet. “Do you have any family?” he asked.
“I don’t know if that makes you lucky or unlucky.” Don said and then walked off.
Just off base there was a hotel. There was a lot of activity happing this day. Don walked up to the front desk and asked which room Donna Mallory was staying in.
“And you are?”
Don held his id out for her to see.
“Thank you, Mr. Mallory. She’s in 204. Shall I call up to announce you?”
“No, thank you.”
Only the second floor. Instead of using the elevator, he took the stairs. Before knocking he checked his uniform. Everything seemed ok but he didn’t knock. He was just standing there in the hallway.
After he’d been standing out there for something like half an hour rehearsing what he wanted to say in his head, a navy officer came down the hall with three daisies in his hand. He walked right up to room 204 and knocked without even paying any attention to Don.
The door opened and the officer asked the woman if she was ready to go to lunch with him. Don heard Donna say she was but before anything could happen, Don pushed the officer into the room from behind. Donna yelled out in a frightened “yiah” and the officer almost fell down face first but got his balance and turned around in a fighting stance.
“What the hell do you think you’re pendik escort doing?” Don said as he slammed the door behind him.
The officer saw that it was only a lowly private and put his hands down and straightened his back. “That’s assaulting an officer, private. You better be able to explain yourself.” the officer said while putting his finger in Don’s face.
Don quickly punched the officer in his exposed gut with one hand, kicked him off balance and grabbed that finger so he could twist it.
“I asked you a question, maggot. What the hell are you doing in here?”
“Donny, what are you doing?” Donna yelled.
“Shut up you whore.” Then he turned his attention to the officer. “You want to date her. Huh?” he asked as he slapped the officer across the face.
“You’re dead.” the officer said with pain in his voice even as he was being forced to the ground by Don’s grip. “You’re going to prison. Your career is over.”
“I asked you a fucking question.” Don said and then punched the officer in the face. “Are you fucking deaf?” Don punched him again and blood was drawn. “What the hell are you doing in here?”
“Donny, please stop.” Donna said as she came to him. He pushed her away and then pointed to tell her to sit.
“Now, worm, the way I see it, I could just kill you or maybe I’ll go to command and let them know what kind of extra curricular activities you’re getting up to.” Don said.
“You’re the one who’s in deep shit, private.”
“You make sure to give them my name. Donald Mallory. That’s Donna Mallory you were about to take out. Did you know that? Huh? HUH?”
The officer’s eyes grew wide.
“Oh, now he gets it.” Don said. Then he turned to the woman. “And you shut your damn trap. I’ll get to you later.”
Don released the officer and the man got to his feet. Don went to the door and opened it and then pointed to the hallway. The officer corrected his uniform and then walked out with his head high. “I’ll remember that name.” he said as he looked over at the woman in disgust. “I’m going to make your career a living hell.”
“You just go and try.” Don said and slammed the door.
A moment passed and then Don turned to the woman who looked very afraid.
“What the hell are you doing here?” he asked her.
“Waiting for you to come see me.”
“Did you not get the message that I didn’t want you here?”
“No. I’ve been here for weeks and you’ve only ignored me.”
“Yeah, that was me sending you the message that I didn’t want you here. And who the hell was that guy?”
“Richard. He was a nice guy. Why did you do that?”
“He’s a dickwad officer and you’re a damn flirt.”
“I came with a message. Goodbye.”
“What’s the message?”
“The message is goodbye.”
“You pull all that just to tell me that?”
“You can go tell mom and dad that they’re going to get what they always wanted.”
“What are you talking about?”
“I’m shipping out tomorrow. Chances are good that I’m never coming back.”
“Top secret. Can’t say.”
“What do you mean never? A year? Two?”
“Never as in never. Not a year. Not two. Not the end of the war. Never. If you’re lucky my head might come home in a box. Then maybe mom and dad will be able to stomach looking me in the face.”
“Why? What’s going on?”
“Are you messing with me?”
“Did you not just see me punch an officer? Take this seriously.”
“I’m … I’m having a hard time understanding what you’re saying.”
“This is it. Ok. You’re never going to see me again. This is it. The last time you’ll see me alive, ever.”
She got up and walked over to him. She tried to hug him but he held his arms out to stop it. “You don’t have to do that.” he said.
“I’m sorry.” she said. “I’ll call mom and dad.”
“I’m sure they’ll come down to see you. Can you postpone going for …”
“No. I have orders. It’s locked in. Done. I ship out tomorrow.”
She sat down at the nearest chair and started crying.
“Hey, you don’t have to do that.” he said. “Stop it. You don’t have to pretend like you care.”
“I do care. How can you say that?”
“Well, gee, everything for the last, don’t know, 18 years.”
“Mom and dad did what they thought was best for us. And I was not part of that decision.”
“Yeah but I’m still allowed to blame you.”
“Cause they kept you.”
“Donny, they didn’t put you in an orphanage, you went to live with grandma.”
“Oh, so mom and dad are responsible for that, too?”
“They might be.”
“How can you say that?”
“Anyway, now you’ve seen me and I’ve said goodbye. So there. You can’t say I just went off to my death without letting anyone know.”
“Don’t go. Don’t. My God. Stay for … for dinner at least. Ok. If I’m never going to see you again, I … we should talk.”
“Talk? Sorry. Not to be crude or anything but if this is the last day I’m going to be in the US, I was thinking I’d like rus escort to go get some pussy. Now, knowing how many hoops you broads like to put guys through in order to put out, well, the clock is ticking.”
“Ok but it’s only noon. You can spare an hour, can’t you?”
“Please. That’s all I ask. I’ll order some room service. We don’t even have to go anywhere.”
“Yeah, I’ll go for that. It has to be better than chow.”
She called and ordered. They waited in silence for a bit but then Donna asked “So, what did you do after grandma died?”
“Oh, you mean when I was homeless at 13 and mom and dad couldn’t be bothered to break from their ever busy schedule to come get me?”
“That was a complicated time. You know they were …”
“Whatever. I don’t even care now. I worked on a ship. I was a deck hand.”
“On a ship? That’s interesting. I remember that summer when we came to visit you and you talked to me for hours about Cook and Magellan. You talked about finding new places and exploring the unknown.”
“Yeah the ships I worked on mostly just went up and down the coast.”
“You know, I was actually surprised when you didn’t join the navy.”
“You don’t exactly have a choice these days. The army wanted me so they got me.”
“Can I tell you something?” she asked in a softer tone.
“I used to get picked on because of you.”
“Cause I’d tell everyone that I was a twin but then they’d want to meet you and you weren’t around.”
“And whose fault was that?”
“Can you lay off for a second so I can just say this? The other kids used to say I only made you up and that you were my imaginary friend. They wouldn’t believe me even when I showed them your picture or my birth certificate to prove I was a twin.”
“Right, and that’s my fault.”
“No, of course not. I didn’t say that. I’m sorry mom and dad gave you away. I am. But Donny, they hardly had the money to take care of me. When they sent you to live in grandma’s big house I was actually jealous of you.”
“When I was in school, I never told anyone about you.”
“Why not?” she asked.
“Because I didn’t want you. I figured, you didn’t want me, so I didn’t want you. We weren’t family.”
“That’s not fair. I never stopped asking mom and dad when you were going to come home.”
Their food came. She’d ordered blt sandwiches and chips. Don thought it was a very light meal compared to what he was used to. He could have easily complained but decided not to waste his energy. He needed to go get laid just as soon as this meal was over and then try, though fail, to get some sleep.
After they were finished with their food, Donna attempted a few times to get another conversation going but no topic seemed to stick. It was just so hard since they didn’t know anything about each other. They’d only spent two summers together when they were kids and met once more right before he went to basic training.
She saw the frustration growing on his face and she really did not want this to be the last time they ever saw each other. She really didn’t. She didn’t want him to leave angry. She didn’t want the last time to be this way.
She was still trying to talk when he got up and moved for the door. In order to stop him from going, she had to stand directly in front of the door and just fire question after question at him. He eventually stopped answering and just looked at her while holding up his wrist watch for her to see.
“I know. I know.” she said. “But do you have to go yet? So soon?”
“If I had a girl, I’d stay longer, but I don’t. Ok. I have no idea how much longer I have to live and I want to have sex at least once.”
“Yeah. You got a problem with that?”
“No. I just maybe thought that you might have …”
“Might have what?”
“On the boat you were on. Didn’t you …”
“The boat was all men, so … no.”
“So, can you step aside please? If I get lucky fast enough, I’ll come back. How’s that?”
She was out of options. She had to make a drastic decision or this moment would be the end of her ever seeing her brother. An idea came to her. Could she do it? She wanted him to stay and that was all she cared about in that moment. Nothing else mattered to her and she was already starting to think up the words she’d need to say to make it sound truthful.
“Or you could get lucky here.” she said.
“In your hotel room?”
“I’m not bringing a girl to my twin sister’s hotel room. What would you do? Watch?”
“No. Only … Can I tell you something?”
“When I was a teenager …”
“You still are a teenager.”
“You know. When I was younger, I actually had a crush on you.”
“On me? I’m your brother. I’m your twin.”
“You just said it. You don’t see me as family.”
“Well, no; but we’re still …”
“You could go out there and try to pick up a woman. Maybe you’ll get one and maybe you won’t. Or you can stay here and have a sure thing.”
“What sancaktepe escort the hell? Are you messing with me?”
“No. There’s blood on my floor and you’re saying that I will never see you again. No, I’m not messing with you. If this is the last time I’m ever going to see you, then I don’t see what we have to lose.”
“But it’s … it’s …”
“It’s what you want. You want to get laid.”
“But it’s …”
“If this is all we can have then so be it. It’s all we can have.”
He was going to try to say something but she started to take her dress off and she revealed her bra to him.
“Oh, you can’t do that.”
“You’re not looking away.”
“But you can’t do that.”
“You want me to give my virginity to you or the next guy?”
“You’re a virgin?”
“Yes. What did you think?”
“Not that you were a virgin.”
“Well, I am. You can check if you want. In fact, I’m sort of hoping that’s where this goes and I’m guessing from your little guy there, you are too.”
He put his hands by his crotch to cover his growing erection. “Stop that.”
“Stop what?” she asked as she unhooked her bra and let her breasts out for him to see.
“That! Everything! Stop it. We can’t.”
“Donny, I love you. I know you don’t believe me but it’s true. I used to dream of you. We weren’t supposed to be separated. We were supposed to grow up together. Be twins together. That was taken from us. And now you say you’re going off to die. I can not accept that. It was all stolen from us. All of it. So, if this is all we can have, then I say, we do it. What’s the worst that can happen?”
“But …” he tried to say.
“And just think of how pissed off mom and dad will be when I tell them you took my virginity.”
Don froze and looked at her. Oh, that was good. That was excellent. He started to smile and she returned it. Not only that, but his erection grew to three times larger than he could ever remember it being. She saw the excitement in his face and then threw herself into his arms. He carried her to the bed.
“You promise to tell them?”
“I swear it.”
He looked like he was starting to have an orgasm just hearing that. She pushed herself to go to the next step and she kissed him. His eyes popped open and they were looking at each other through the first few moments of the kiss. Then she melted and closed her eyes.
Don felt like he was already about to cum on himself before he could even get out of his clothes. Was he really going to do this? Well, if she was willing then hell yes. If they got caught, what was the army going to do? They’d have to adjudicate him after his mission because that would take priority. And if he died out there, they’d never be able to court martial him.
He kissed her breasts and licked her nipple.
“Suck it.” she said.
He took the nipple into his mouth and gave it a light suck but no more. Then he went back to kissing and licking as he got his underwear off.
“That’s my twin’s cock?” she said.
He finally got her out of her panties as well and saw her hairy pussy. Oh, it was so nice. He’d seen pussy in pictures and all but never in real life.
“Are we really going to do this?” he asked.
“I don’t see that we have a choice. We’ve already gone too far.” she answered.
That seemed logical enough to him. He put the head of his cock up to her pussy and her head flung back at the sensation. She opened her legs as wide as they would go for him and she started to move her hips as she encouraged him to do it already.
He started to enter her and found her to be so wet. So hot. So tight.
He instantly started to cum in her. Oh, that was good. That was better than any stroke of the cock he’d ever had. But that was too soon. That was just way too soon.
“Sorry.” he said.
“It’s ok. It’s ok.” she said. She grabbed his head and pulled him down for another kiss. “Can you keep going?”
“Hell yes.” He nodded and started to go deeper into her with the help of his own semen as added lubrication. She was so tight, he couldn’t even believe it. Was all pussy like this? It was so great. No wonder guys do anything for this. Oh, so good.
He started this first outward motion but maybe he went a little too fast with it and his sister winced.
“It’s ok. The first time for girls can be tough, they say.”
He eased in and out of her and then he got deeper and deeper and deeper. She was feeling his body and kissing any part of him that got anywhere near her mouth.
“Did you really have a crush on me?” he asked.
“Honestly, not exactly but …”
“But I definitely do now. I love you, Donny. I love you. Don’t stop. Please don’t stop.”
Her body was turning red and then she started shaking. Her pussy gave his cock a quick little squeeze and that was all he needed to cum inside of her again. His body jerked a bit and then he opened his eyes. She was smiling at him.
“Do you love me?” she asked.
“I … I certainly care a lot about you. This is great. This is so great. Thank you.”
“If people can do this, why do they ever leave the house?”
“I don’t know. I never want you to leave me.”
Then he felt sad. “I have orders.”
“I know. I know. But I don’t want to stop until you have to leave. Just stay with me. Please.”
