Extracts from this document...


Write a story ending "how we got away I'll never know" The sun rose over the horizon, showering the land with brilliant rays of light. I walked slowly but steadily to my zero fighter plane, but my calm and unruffled exterior was just a mask to hide the fear and tension inside me. Whereas one side of me was willing to die for the glory of the Emperor, the other side wanted this devastating war to end so that I could return home and reunite with my parents and my wife.
