The Side Effects
❝Barring love and war, few enterprises are undertaken with such abandon, or by such diverse individuals, or with so paradoxical a mixture of appetite and altruism, as that group of avocations known as outdoor recreation.
It is, by common consent, a good thing for people to get back to nature. But wherein lies the goodness, and what can be done to encourage its pursuit?❞ -Aldo Leopold. Brought forth by common belief, of that, of the two lovers and what they've endured.
She says- ❝But if there is any further injury, then you shall appoint as a penalty life for life, eye for eye, tooth for tooth, hand for hand, foot for foot, burn for burn, wound for wound, bruise for bruise. But I could never hurt this man. We fight side by side but as long as my heart beats, I will never be able to draw blood from the love of my life. And he doesn't know that, yet he loved me.❞
He says-❝In retrospect, I recall morrows at which I didn't pattern in. I no not what they depict of; their hymns, and laughter seem to relate to a past that all but me has shared. I'm a foreigner in the world and I don't understand the language. I'm out of place, I'm out of time. I am of a time which consist of war. I am made to defend and hurt in the process. I cannot not be. Captian America, the man the world needs me to be without a war. Does that make me a cruel man? Sinful? I am a selfish man. I cannot be, but I can with her. And my love? She sees right through it. And, Oh doesn't my lover know it.❞
