THOMPSON: A Free Dead War Series Short Story

THOMPSON: A Free Dead War Series Short Story

THOMPSON takes place during the events of The Dead War Series Book One. For a brief moment the two stories actually intersect with a character that you might recognize from book one although that character is not actually named in THOMPSON. I wrote Thompson because I noticed that there were a lack of strong and heroic women in book one. That was later corrected in books two and three with the addition of Gabbard and Sgt. Manning. I hope that you enjoy this short story. If you have read book one it should fill in a gap for you about a particular scene and if you have not I hope it gets you to want to check out book one. – See more at: http://www.thedeadwarseries.com/2013/12/thompson-free-dead-war-series-short.html

Love

Love is having a partner
that’s your best friend
Love is having a partner
that’s there to the end

Love is having a partner
that knows it’s about being there
Love is having a partner
that’s knows not to talk just hear

Love is having a partner
that makes you feel better on a bad day
Love is having a partner
that knows exactly what to say

Love is having a partner
that understands you
Love is having a partner
that you are happy that said “I do”

Love is
What I have.

George L. Cook III 2010

Because I’m Daddy
I will be there to protect you
I will look over you
No matter what you do

You are my child
I know at times you don’t need me
I know you need your space for awhile

I understand that you are growing up
Developing a life of your own
But I’m still going to watch over you’re butt

Even when your grown
you know about 30 or 35
I’ll still consider you my own

It’s because I only want to see you happy
I know I can be pest at times
But hey, I’m your daddy

George L. Cook III 2010

ABC

Anyone: I couldn’t love Anyone but you

Beautiful: There is no one as Beautiful as you

Commitment: I am so glad we made a Commitment when we said I do
