It always grew quiet whenever I walked into a room. At first, I'd tried to convince myself that it was all in my head but after a while I found myself accepting the hard truth. They all went quiet because they felt sorry for me. Being such a small town everyone knew what had happened to me and couldn't help but look at me dumbly whenever they saw me as if patiently awaiting the day I would break down. I had to admit that that day didn't seem very far off. However, I didn't want to give them the satisfaction of seeing me in pain.

This trip to the dinner was no different. Immediately I walked in, they all went quiet. I looked around daring anyone to come up to me but as usual no one ever did. The pathetic bunch of cowards wouldn't even say what they were thinking to my face. They all fixed their gazes on their tables clearly afraid of the man the pitied. I couldn't blame them. A look at myself in the mirror the other day had me frightened. I looked so unlike the man who had left this same town ten years ago with an aim to do his duty to his country. I had been a young cheerful youth back then with a head full of golden hair as I had seen in many of my pictures. Always having a reason to smile. However, time had not been kind to me. My body had become massive a huge difference to the lean man I had used to be. A few scars ran across my body with a more notable one across my cheek. My once bright blue eyes seemed to have dimmed portraying only anger and agony and my head of blonde hair had grown grayer despite still being a young man. All this was the price I had to pay for ten hard years of sacrifice and yet I had nothing to show for it. The price I had long awaited while away from home had been snatched away from me ruthlessly.
