After losing the woman that he loves, Rick Flag is a broken man. June is gone from his life, and he didn't even get to say goodbye. Now, he thinks it best that he return home to give himself a chance to recover. He needs a break from the daily stress and turmoil of his job, but will he find everything the same as it was when he left or is there something more?
A/N: All characters, except Mackenzie and Cora, owned by DC. This is an AU storyline, set after Suicide Squad. In this version, June didn't survive the battle. This will follow the same timeline as my other Suicide Squad story, 'Devil's Backbone.'
This is an AU storyline, and while it will follow the basics of the story set up by the film, there will be a few changes made to fit this AU version.
