"So... you were... y'know... a soldier?"
"Could you tell me about it?"
"What would I tell you about it?"
"Dunno. Stories? You gotta have stories."
"Not that many, really."
"Well, were you ever scared? Like... of the dark? Dark's pretty scary."
"When I was your age? Yeah. But after that... you kinda learn to appreciate it."
Nights are simple. Quiet, calm, stressless. That's why you use them to rest.
Military folks out there - I admit I have no idea what the uniform policy is. I asked around and got conflicting answers about where the nametag is placed on combat gear and how to correctly write a lieutenant rank on one, so sorry if I messed that up. Thankfully, Vartan's our only ex-pro-military guy, so there's not much to screw up.
Gee... it's still weird whenever I remember Vartan's actually a last name...
I should write more Kid!Colby interactions with the team. They're too much fun.
