As soon as you came home that evening and saw the dark look on his face you knew it would be a night like this. It happened sometimes. It had been hard at the beginning but now you are used to it, you know what to do and how to handle the situation… when he is caught in a nightmare, his handsome face is painful mask, not hiding anything what he is feeling…
They haunt him. The ghosts of his past. And you try your best to chase them away. With gentle words, reminder that he isn’t alone anymore. That he isn’t in a prison cell or worse.
You don’t touch him. Not till he opens his eyes and you see that he recognizes where he is. It may take some time but he always comes around.
"Fantasy is escapist, and that is its glory. If a soldier is imprisioned by the enemy, don’t we consider it his duty to escape?…If we value the freedom of mind and soul, if we’re partisans of liberty, then it’s our plain duty to escape, and to take as many people with us as we can! "
