AWOL

"It was the weather" said the Colonel.

"It wasn't just the weather" interrupted Hardy, "It was Ashton, Congleton and Prescot all in a row".

The General rose from the leather chair, took a sip of his brandy and whispered "It was all of those things and more".

He walked over to the tall window and stared out at the rain, a shallow mist hung low across the faraway hills, after a long silence he spoke again....... "It was the arrogance that finished it".

"What news of a return" asked Hardy reverentially???

The bird flew from the tree, glistening droplets fell from the branch, then nothing, all was still.
