Chapter One

Dear Mum,

Dad sent me to see Dr. Fritz today – you remember him? He's the base doctor with the moustache you always said looked like a caterpillar that had died on his lip (sorry Dr. Fritz if you're reading this). I guess Dad was too busy or something to talk to me himself. That or he thinks I'm crazy, either one's possible I suppose.

Dr. Fritz thinks I should write to you, that if I tell you how I feel then everything will be okay. Well here goes: I miss you. That's it. That's all I feel. But writing it down doesn't make me feel better and writing to you doesn't make you any less dead.

Sam
